does anyone know when cata is suppose to ship? In trade chat yesterday on Scilla, the word on the street is Nov 2nd. Confirm or deny?

It will probably be the same way as the wrath release. Just before the wrath expansion came out, they released a patch which I think was like 2.9 and it contained all the pre launch events such as the plague that turned people to zombies and the undead attacks on Org and Stormwind. Then shortly before the actual expansion came out they released patch 3.0.2 which reset all the talents and included all the new spells and talent trees but the level cap was still at 70. Then when the expansion came out, northrend and the new levels caps were available.So most likely they'll do the same thing with Cata where 3.9 will come out and give all the pre launch events and then a week or so before the expansion release patch 4.0.X will come out with all the new talents and spells and reset the talent trees.
@DarkLordMagus Eh? Did you miss the whole reason for this blog? 4.0.1 is on the PTR and is partially available to the background downloader. There isn't going to be a 3.9.0 patch. The last 3.x.x patch was apparently 3.3.5, and it has been said by blue even after this 4.0.1 there will be one final 4.0.3 patch to release before Cataclysm hits the shelves. 4.0.1 will contain the major system changes (class, glyph, talent changes, reforging) and also will begin the ramp-up Cataclysm pre-lauch event with the Twilight Cultist doomsayers.And the Invasion event didn't happen a WEEK before WotLK released... it was more like a month or so.
@fewynAye I actually completely forgot about that. What does that mean to the patch tho? Would the fact that Blizzcon is held on the 22nd of October mean that we should expect to get the patch before that date?Coupled with the fact that the patch may not be as big as I expected it to be, is first week of October turning out to be realistic?
After getting the background downloader to work, I now remember why I hate it: it never works, even after specifically setting my firewalls to permit and all the other garbage... I have no choice but to wait until I can manually download it. (The wiki takes me to upload pages and I don't want to upload.)
