I got Halls of Lightning yesterday for my daily HC and the Librarian’s Paper Cutter dropped. Its not a massively rare BoE, but it did take me a good few runs to get lucky on my rogue when I was gearing up. Well its always nice to win a BoE as you’ll get a bit more profit on the Auction House. Well I was fortunate to win the roll before moving down the corridor towards the ‘burst to life’ statues. It wasn’t far before another dropped, I chuckled to myself thinking ‘hurr hurr, I wonder if I win this one also’. Well lightning struck twice and bam, winning roll, another Paper Cutter in my pack. Makes me curse the fact at how long I had spent on my rogue for this only to get two within 30 seconds.
Anyway, in other news, Cataclysm looks due for release on the 7th December. It hasn’t been announced officially but evidence had lead to prove it will be.
+ARENA_MASTER_NO_SEASON_TEXT = “Arena battles and Rated Battlegrounds are only available during an active player versus player combat season. Season nine will begin on December 14th, so be prepared at that time to take your shot at glory!”;

On top of that, people who noticed a possibly sneaky reference a couple of months back are getting their ‘I told you so’ ready. In the Operation: Gnomeregan Imminent event news, the end of the first paragraph has the line; the chance of any cataclysmic event taking place in the foreseeable future is “less than 12.7%. 12/07 or 07/12 to us European’s reading as the 7th of December. Now its all coming together :). Remember though, although this means another 2 months til the expansion, patches 4.0 etc will be released before the expansion giving you the new world and talents etc before your able to unlock the 80-85 zones, new races and level cap with the cd-key.
