Aye, it's indeed much fun.

They've gone bananas with the flight points, though.

How ridiculous and unrealistic is the man who is astonished at anything that happens in nature.

Yeah, seriously dolanaar having it's own flight point? "HEY I NEED HELP GETTING FROM THE CENTER OF THIS TREE TO THE EDGE FOLLOWING A NEAR-STRAIGHT ROAD WITH 1 BRIDGE!" :D

To be fair, it was annoying to run that stretch. But little else.

[MOD NOTE: This post has been merged with this topic at Dorp’s request]

Blizzard added new world maps. A few things to note before - these maps may not be the final maps so the information i present here is not final. The first one i'd like to introduce is Azeroth itself - http://www.wowwiki.com/File:WorldMap-World-cata.jpg

- Northrend remains exactly the same.
- The maelstrom has changed.
- All the small isles in the south (Like the broken isles) remain the same.
- The map looks cleaner - the figures around the old map were removed.

Bigger changes in the Eastern Kingdoms and Kalimdor.

Eastern Kingdoms
http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb2 ... h-cata.jpg

Quel'Thalas
- Both in the old map and in the current map we can see the land known as "Northeron" (http://www.wowwiki.com/Northeron). Since flying mounts will be available it makes you wonder what will become of this zone.
- Rest remains the same.

Lordaeron
- New isles around Gilneas. Possibly Tol Barad/Kul Tiras.
- Gilneas itself looks smaller as it is updated to it's form in-game.
- Hillsbrad and Alterac appear to be one zone.

Khaz Modan
- The area between badlands and redridge does no exist in the new map.
- Twillight highlands is a lot bigger.
- The area between Dun Morogh and Elwynn Forest is now part of the sea (possibly where the tram is supposed to be).

Southern Eastern Kingdoms (Kingdom of Stormwind)
- Deadwind pass and Duskwood appear to be the same zone.
- STV is split into two.
- Elwynn forest is slightly bigger in the area of Stormwind.

Kalimdor (Going from the top)
http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb2 ... r-cata.jpg

- Teldrassil has a small addition to it at it's south. (looks like a small island)
- Draenei starting zones remain the same.
- Darkshore is destroyed.
- Moonglade lost a small area of it to Winterspring. (an area that is not pat of the actual moonglade in game)
- Hyjal took a part of southern Winterspring. (that place with demons it's name i can not recall?)
- Azshara (sadly) looks like the Horde symbol (or atleast the orcish).
- The barrens are split into two.
- Thousand Needles is flooded and eh, to say it lightly, "looks odd".
- Tanaris is slightly flooded.
- Tanaris and Un'goro look just a bit different due to Uldum being visible.
- Silithus split into two - Silithus and Ahn'qiraj?
- Ashenvale, Stonetalon, Desolace, Felwood and Dustwallow are the same.

I know most of this is obvious, but i thought it's worth to write it all down. The only real questions i have are why is Ahn'Qiraj showing as an actuall zone and will we see anything of the mysterious Northeron?

Feel free to see the differences yourself here (for all the other zone maps too) - http://www.wowwiki.com/Cataclysm_map_comparison

Interesting about Ahn Qiraj. I flew down there a bit ago to see if it had changed yet (It hasn't). But I DID note that I could mount my Qiraji mount outside of the raids but inside the temple itself. I wonder if that'll be extended...
