More patch news

With the news pouring out of Blizzard's "blue posters" about the forthcoming content patch, It is clear to me that we're going to need a bigger boat! The current limit of 25 Daily quests per day (albeit raised from 10 when Quel'Danas was introduced) is going to be a pain. As I've been doing my Loremaster questing, I haven't really had time to do daily quests with all factions - but as you add up the cooking, fishing, oracles, hodir, instances, TBC Dailys (Skyguard & Ogri-la) that I SHOULD be doing, it soon fills up and I can't complete some of them!

With the release of the Secrets of Ulduar, the Argent Tournament opened its doors to heroes from all over Azeroth and saw champions arise from the ranks to take on the challenges before them to prove their worth. In the next upcoming content patch, Call of the Crusade, the Argent Tournament will be expanding its influence and players will be able to experience all-new dailies, rewards, and areas of interest.

Two New Quest Hubs
  • A new Cult of the Damned camp now sits overlooking the Tournament grounds and spying on the activity below.
  • Located on an island north of Icecrown, the former tuskarr village known as Hrothgar's Landing is a mist-shrouded staging point for Sea Vrykul raids upon the ships of the Silver Covenant and the Sunreavers in the waters between the island and Icecrown.
New Dailies and Rewards
  • A new line of quests and rewards for players who have become exalted with either the Silver Covenant or the Sunreavers.
  • Earn seals by participating in three additional random dailies and earn brand-new rewards.
  • A new line of dailies and rewards for players who have earned the title of Crusader with two random seal-awarding dailies.
The Black Knight Returns
  • Just when you thought you had seen the last of the Black Knight, he makes his astonishing return to Tournament. Wait, didn’t you kill him?
New Tabards:
  • Alliance characters will be able to earn the Silver Covenant tabard
  • Horde characters will be able to earn the Sunreaver tabard .
  • Argent Crusade Tabard - Ports you directly to the Tournament grounds.
New Mounts:
  • Alliance will be able to purchase the new Quel'dorei Steed and Silver Covenant Hippogryph.
  • Horde will be able to purchase the new Sunreaver Hawkstrider and Sunreaver Dragonhawk.
  • A new Argent Crusade paladin-only charger.
New Pet:
  • A brand-new pet, the Shimmering Wyrmling, will be available to characters of both factions who distinguish themselves.
New Heirlooms:
  • A chest piece heirlooms will provide a 10% experience bonus that stacks with the shoulder bonus.
Upgraded Squire:
  • As any good squire should, this upgraded squire now has a mount.
  • He can be called forth every eight hours for three minutes of duty.
  • The upgrade cost is 150 Champion Seals.
  • Your squire will also offer one of three services: bank, mail, or vendor access.
I wonder if the squire can go hand in a couple of quests for me?
