The fifth boss in Sunwell Plateau is M'uru. So far no guild have managed to defeat him -- but they've been going at it as much as possible during the last couple of days. One guild, Deus Vox, have managed to get M'uru to 38% thus far. Other guilds remain fairly quiet on their progress, but, it's just a matter of time until we see a kill most likely.
WoWWiki's description of Mu'ru is that M'uru was the sole naaru guardian of Tempest Keep. When the keep was invaded by Kael'thas and his blood elf followers, M'uru was captured and taken to Farstriders' Square in Silvermoon City.World of Raids there's a M'uru Progression Thread that contain some interesting information and discussion.
Ok, since we experienced a few site issues, we're behind on the blue posts and below you can find all blue posts that we've yet to publish.
Main source for these blue posts is World of Raids - which is the source 99% of all other WoW sites cite from but somehow "forget" to mention the source for.
Bug: Weapon size changing
Changes were made to the female human weapons to rectify the problems introduced in 2.4.0. Until this change goes live please post your feedback on this change here.
Bug: Tauren sizes (again) + debuffs
The sheathed weapon sizes have been fixed, but a new problem has arisen, now unsheathed two hand and one handed weapons (equipped in the main-hand slot only, off-hand remain unaffected) have drastically decreased in size. Also the far right debuff on the target frame would normally be knocked down to the second row when the target of target frame is shown, however this is not the case in 2.4.2. It does not move and is mostly hidden behind the target of target frame.
Have any of you actually tested this on the PTR? This was fixed in the last build. Tauren weapons are the same size (HUGE) when wielded and when sheathed.
Win Trading and "Cheating" in the Arena
There are a multitude of changes in patch 2.4.2 (currently on the PTR) that will help combat boosting, pointselling and wintrading. To the best of my knowledge, none of these changes are live yet.
Wrath of the Lich King and Alchemy
Can you convince me to keep Alchemy?
... because you don't know what's coming for the profession in Lich King yet? Probably not a very convincing reason at the moment. Personally I might level enchanting now before the expansion just because it's so expensive to do that you're going to still have time to make up your losses. Buuuuuuuuut... you may be kicking yourself after you see what Alchemy has going for it in the next expansion, or maybe enchanting will be more enticing for you, hard to say.

Zero plans to add group dueling support
There are actually in-game locations where such events can be organized. The world arenas in Stranglethorn Vale, Nagrand and Blade's Edge Mountain come to mind as suitable locations for group "duelling" and combat practise. As for a group duel option (such as /groupduel), we have no current plans to add this.
The philosophy behind the new badge weapons
The idea behind the weapons on the badge vendors was to cater more towards some of the less desirable specs, if you will - as a way to encourage players to use those specs; such as daggers for rogues, axes for warriors, etc.
Death Knights and Race restrictions
We've said many times since BlizzCon, that we don't have any plans for race restrictions at this time.
High level character still required to create a Death Knight
You will still need to have a character on your account of the appropriate level to even be able to make a deathknight.
Arena opposition not participating
We have made some changes to the game in 2.4.2 that resolves this problem :)
