In Cataclysm Azshara will be turned into the starting area for the new Horde addition, the goblins. From the video previews so far it looks like it will be a great leveling experience !
It seems a lot of people are waiting for Cataclysm and are playing other games at the moment. At most I see 2 or 3 people in guild chat, if any ! On the rare occasion I log on, that is. Even Dalaran isn’t as busy as it used to be.
