The Burning Crusade will see the Overlords of Outland coming out tomorrow, introducing Serpentshrine Cavern and The Eye as well as features such as Guild Banks and the Group Browser.
Retail players are being prepared for patch 9.1.5 which will see the removal of the Conduit Energy system, along with other changes and fixes.
