It turns out I wasn't stupid to hoard more than 260K gold until Cataclysm. This interesting tidbit from Blizz's Twitter chat is pure gold if you will forgive the pun. I'm assuming the 310% riding skill (on top of the existing 5K gold 280% skill) won't be cheap. I'm expecting at least 1000G. My gold will be put to good use.
In other words they will allow people in Cataclysm to purchase the 310% riding skill for gold. Woohoo! That means I don't have to worry about that stupid achievement. That also means that I can return to the game much later than I had planned.
Another welcome change in Cataclysm will be the ability to fly around Azeroth. Fucking finally! The class changes are meh but at least we'll be able to see Azeroth from the air.
