WOW Upcoming patch 3.2

I'm Back.Cataclysm is still some time away, in the meantime we have patch 3.2 to look forward to. One of the big changes in the patch is upgrading Onyxia to a 10 and 25 man dungeon. This comes with new loot, which will have stats for level 80 players but will have the art work of the original loot. Many players love the old style, so this will allow them to keep that old style yet have good stats.

Onyxia will also drop a 310% speed flying mount based on her model. Here are the patch notes of everything on PTR right now, of course subject to change, from Blizzard (Patch Notes) ;
