Heads up anyone looking for Cataclysm elemental content – I’ve posted a “quick primer” over at TotemSpot.com, consisting of some answers to frequently asked questions (which I can’t take credit for), some brief non-spoilery notes on what to expect from the new content both initially and at level 85, and some tips on the whole levelling business based on my experiences on the beta realms. Please do go check it out and don’t hesitate to ask questions or offer your own observations, either in the comments or on the conveniently placed forums!
There’s also pewter’s recent 80-85 levelling guide over at WoW Insider, which covers much stuff I didn’t mention as well as some stuff I, uh, revisited (that’s a better word than superfluously reiterated, right?), so be sure to go take a look if you missed it.
As for Planet of the Hats, I’ve got a couple of more fatuous and vapid posts in the works which I’m looking forward to having a chance to publish at least one of this week provided I don’t get overly distracted by the small matter of Cataclysm launching.
