Blue Posts: 2.4 info, wotlk and built-in addons, DK

2.4 info (src)

We have information in the works, but I'd caution people that it's not going to be today or even Monday, but we have plans and are working to put things together that will hopefully make the wait worthwhile.
I'd also caution people about getting their expectations up in regard to "sweeping class changes". Again, we have many things in the works and a definite plan of action that we will share with you all more as we progress.
As always, I'll remind people that if we don't post patch notes, they aren't the real deal. We create them, we post them, we make them reality. Don't supplant someone's fantasy patch notes for the real ones in your heads. It will only end in tears on so many fronts.

We know things... things that will make some squeal in delight...
Ok, maybe not actually squeal in delight, but there is definitely more than meets the eye and we feel there are some great new bits coming your way.
I don't want to raise any expectations beyond what they should be at, but there is more than one thing that I'm looking forward to. Take it for what it's worth.
*No, I'm not pinning myself down to any specific date for an information release. Sorry!

(EU) Blackout and Bloodlust battlegroup realms: 25/08 Latency Issues (src)

We are aware of high latency and disconnect issues on the Blackout and Bloodlust battlegroup realms. We are investigating the cause of this issue and hope to have this resolved as soon as possible.
We thank you for your patience and apologise for the inconvenience caused.

WotLK: About UI changes (src)

Itemrack, outfitter and built-in threat meter are planned features for WotLK, but haven't been started yet, so no promises.

WotLK: 10 Man Raids and reset timer (src)

While reset timers are not things we have finalized at this point, but we do put a lot of thought into them and based on more than just the number of people it is designed for we will do what is best for the game.

WotLK: One DK per account? (src)

Would this keep DK's from flooding WoW, if people could only have one DK on their entire account?

We still have awhile before we can say if there will be restrictions.
Generally though, when something new comes out, people will flock to it. After a period of time, some will decide it's not what they want, that their guild needs something else or any other thing that will lead them away from playing a Death Knight exclusively.
We plan to make sure the Death Knight balances in among all of the other classes.

WotLK: Mal'ganis and lore (src)

Mal'ganis, an agent of the Burning Legion, was controlling the Lich King and in turn the Scourge. After Arthas had gone beyond the brink of sanity in trying to destroy the leader of the undead who had destroyed so much of his homeland, the Lich King told him to get his revenge and killed Mal'ganis.
