Even more blue posts has been made, this time covering mana regeneration, bugged quests, mage and paladin information, shaman bug list, new design of metamorphosis for warlocks.
Mana regen in raid
Nobody seems to be having problems with mana in Naxx right now (maybe Ret pallies), but I think that's because regen is too good across the board. I wouldn't use that experience (yet) to determine that you have enough Spirit. Most casters are going to have a lot of Spirit on their gear, but we'll see if we can get you (Druids) some more crit.

Quest - Misson Shaadraz and Murketh bugged
This is a known issue that we're currently investigating. Thanks for the report, Einlanzer. (src)
About Mirror Image
I like to think of Mirror Image as a case where the process just worked.
There were some cool talents in the mage trees. There were some nice damage mechanics, like Hot Streak, that felt interesting and different. But LK mages weren't getting anything that felt cool and exciting except for easy ports to Dalaran.
And the mages felt it. And they told us. And we went back to work. It was a really hard spell to implement from a technical standpoint, but totally worth it.
So I'm glad Mirror Image worked out. It's fun. It's a little unpredictable. It changes the game for everyone, not just mages. We had a mirror image run up and melee Patchwerk last night. Dumb image. (src)
Please use these threads to consolidate any feedback you have on the Arcane/Fire/Frost tree. Which talents do you like? Which ones are disappointing? Which would be fine with a numbers tweak? (src)
Patch 3.0 and Protection Paladins itemization
With all the changes taking place in the upcoming patch, the gear has been modified to better suit the classes needs. The Protection Paladins will function very well with changes made to their current tier equipment. (src)
Build 8905 - Bug List
Yes, we have seen it. Helpful list. (src)
New Metamorphosis Design (src)
While this is not final and could absolutely change, here is what we're thinking about for the new design:
- You keep your pet.
- You keep your spells.
- It buffs spell damage (for that "blow your cooldowns" feel).
- It buffs mitigation (you could even tank for a bit).
- It provides the current snare reduction for PvP.
- You'll still get a few fun demon abilities, but you can just use your normal spells if you'd rather.
