World of Warcraft: Cataclysm Preview

The guys at GamerTell are offering up their own preview of Blizzard's World of Warcraft: Cataclysm expansion pack, based on what was seen during PAX.
The Worgen intro starts in the territory of Gilneas and it doesn't start well: your character, in wolf-man form, is held in stocks, waiting to find out if he can be cured of lycanthropy or executed. But here's the thing about the Worgen's lycanthropy: the player controls it as a special ability on their toolbar. You can switch whenever you like, and it's completely cosmetic. Unlike class-based shape-shifting, you get no bonuses or penalties as either human or wolf, and you can use all of your weapons, spells, and abilities in either form.
