Cataclysm seems like a misnomer for World of Warcraft's third expansion. An accurate description of the events that have befallen Azeroth it may be, it hides the true purpose of what Blizzard are trying to achieve here, to fix and mend the game of the flaws it has been burdened with since launch. This is a rebirth of WoW, not it's end. But it's that wave of unnatural disasters that stick out the most, tearing this huge online world to pieces through tsunami's, earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, reshaping it in the process. The results vary in their intensity.
