Looks like the pre-event to Cataclysm is starting already, with 'earthquakes' occuring across WoW.

I haven't seen this on Shadowsong, has anyone else?

There's been some interesting chatter going on around the internet lately about mysterious in-game earthquakes happening throughout Azeroth. Seemingly at random the screen will shake back and forth for a few moments. There are no visible mobs or other occurrences that would cause this. However, these earthquakes are being reported by more and more people.



There are invisible mobs called Shakers in the game right now. There are two types of these mobs. The first is just called [DND] Shaker that was potentially in the game as early as patch 3.2.2, based on comments left on the live version of WoWHead. There was also another mob added in patch 3.3 called [DND] Shaker - Small.


And some blue posts:

It was just you. Seriously, earthquakes leading up to some kind of cataclysm? I lol'd.

*the earth shakes a bit* o.O

events started before the beta has even started? Not even sure it's went into alpha stage yet ~.o

Really nice touch from Blizzard. Will be interesting to see how this develops.
