New World of Warcraft, 'Cataclysm' expansion leaked?

Werewolves could be all kinds of fun. But goblins? Really Blizzard?

An overzealous WoW player shows off her Alliance and Horde tattoos. Presumably, she'll be first in line for the new expansion.

Werewolves and goblins and cats-out-of-the-bag oh my, a World of Warcraft fansite is dishing rumors on Blizzard's next expansion to its massively successful online roleplaying game.

Skeptical Raybans at the ready, WoW.com claims the new expansion will be titled World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, and that its two new playable races will be Worgen (werewolves) and Goblins, stepping in for Alliance and Horde factions respectively. Both races already factor in the game's virtual-verse, but aren't playable.

Blizzcon 2009 is right around the corner, August 21-22, so it's about time the tittle started tattling. But is Blizzard leaking false positives? Could be. They've certainly done it before.

As for the hypothetical race picks, werewolves could be all kinds of fun. But goblins? Really Blizzard?

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
