Ret's Mastery

We have actually changed Retribution's mastery. Having both it and Inquisition boost Holy damage was giving too much power to things like Exorcism (over which you have very little control) and not enough to things like Templar's Verdict (which is supposed to be the centerpiece of your rotation). The new mastery will emphasize Templar's Verdict more.

Leveling the same class?

Did it felt boring doing the same stuff you did last time? Did you had more fun since you know your class a lot more? Each time you level a character, your knowledge of the game increases. So, even if you were to level one character to 80 and then immediately level another in an identical fashion—same faction, class, race, quest progression, etc—I imagine that your experiences would still differ greatly. If anything, the second time around, you'd have a better understanding of your class' mechanics and could melt face with awesome efficiency. Who could argue with that?
Speaking personally, though, I've leveled a number of classes more than once and I enjoy the process immensely. There's so many different ways to play a single class, and it can be a fun challenge to discover them all. It's a novel sort of familiarity—even if think you know everything there is to know about priests, or shaman, or rogues, since you're playing at different experience level and in different environments, there's always the opportunity to learn something new.
Like Kaneka noted, so long as play what you enjoy, it's hard not to have a good time. In the end, though, you won't know how you like leveling a class more than once until give it a try. :)

Operation: Gnomeregan Canceled?

The plans for the operation are ongoing. Do not fear. We'll let you know when the call goes out. Then we shall see what heights the gnomes can truly rise up to!

Now when Valnoth said ALL dungeons...

Heroic SFK/Deadmines are not being released with Cataclysm, but with a patch after it goes live.

Heroics are not ready for testing.

Heroic Shadowfang Keep and Heroic Deadmines WILL be released with Cataclysm. You will not have to wait for a later patch.
