Cataclysm released on my wife's birthday. Fortunately she plays too... unfortunately she couldn't get the day off.

Good luck to you!

I took my customary 18 days of leave from work for a new xpac / major patch to level and gear up. Now...to decide if I actually want to main tank for two guilds...

18days???!?
My wife would kill me slowly and painfully...

But, I was able to schedulle a running 3 days leave. That is enough to get to 85 and get some gear ready to raid on the first week.
And enough so she kicks my head in due to much time dedicated to WoW.

Cheers

I'd need to have 18 days to actually take them. I've got a grand total of 20 a year and I've used already 10 this summer to go on vacation back home, I couldn't book those many if I wanted.

I've taken 4 days off, getting up silly early Tuesday morning probably 4 am ish UK time so me and a Finnish friend can level together. With any luck the servers will be stable by that time but still early enough to be ahead of most ppl in the starting area :D

Not sure what I'll do yet. Took two days last time (tues + wed), got to 85 on my main on the first day. Might just do the same again.

Worldwide launch still happens at midnight on US time, doesn't it?

Midnight EST, I believe. So it'll be 9pm Monday for me, which is actually quite nice.

[Edit] This was changed, it's midnight PDT again.

All races will be playable by any expansion level of WoW when 5.0.4 is released.

Well, not quite. The way the blue post reads, Pandas still won't be available until the launch, but, you'll be able to play them without the expac once it launches.

When 5.0 hits people will be able to play any race without the relevant expansion, hence you'll be able to play Worgen or Goblin even if you don't own Cata, Draenei and Blood Elves were already available to everyone as, if I remember correctly, TBC is now part of the base pack, while Pandas will be available to everyone, but only when Pandaria officially launches.

What? No. This is wrong. There was the same confusion last expansion. The European expansion will be playable at midnight GMT + 1. So 11 pm for the UKers and 6 pm for ESTers provided you play EU side.

Disregard what it says when you buy the expansion - EU will be playing before US.

Yeah was going to say... getting up to play at 5 am would've been more desirable than playing starting around midnight. I was actually really happy with my situation last expansion - got to come home from work, get a run in, then start playing at 6 pm and straight through until 4 am or so before we started to feel like sleep was necessary. Sure beats waiting around till midnight and then crashing shortly thereafter.

Similar here with the Cataclysm launch on my US server being about 8am GMT (which is why I thought it'd be PST again in the US?).

US military gets 30, plus all federal holidays and 4-5 "family days" that usually coincide with some of the bigger holidays (Independence Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, couple others) giving us 4-day weekends.
