Will we continue to receive free downloadable update patches? Will these patches continue to include new content such as dungeons and events?
Yes, we plan to support World of Warcraft in the same manner as before, which means providing frequent content updates for areas of the game we feel are most in need.
Can we expect the same pace of content releases after the release of The Burning Crusade?
Yes. We'll continue to produce fun and exciting content as quickly as possible.
Do you plan to include content in The Burning Crusade for players who aren't yet level 60?
Yes, there will be two new races, each with starting zones from levels 1-20. In addition, the new profession Jewelcrafting will be available to all expansion players regardless of level.

The post goes on to say, "Such behavior not only negatively impacts the economy of a realm, it diminishes the achievements of those who play legitimately. We will continue to aggressively monitor all World of Warcraft realms in order to protect the service and our players from the harmful effects of cheating." The post ends with a request for subscribers to report any players using illegal third-party programs to farm gold or items. This is just another strike in what's turning into a long battle against gold farmers.
