    Well look at this, Blizzard is doing exactly what they did before Burning Crusade was released. We will see a major content patch released before the new expansion (most likely version 3.0 of the game). It is very close to what they added in for the game pre-Burning Crusade, we're getting talents, the barber shop, and much much more, check out Eyonix's post below!

    *With the release of Wrath of the Lich King
    approaching, we wanted to provide you with some important information.
    In preparation for the expansion, we will be issuing a new content
    patch in the coming weeks. Much like the patch made available shortly
    before The Burning Crusade's release, this content patch is designed to
    bridge current game content with that of the expansion and will contain
    some exciting changes and additions.

    We have outlined some of the larger features scheduled to release with the patch below:

    New class spells and talents

    Stormwind Harbor

    Barbershops in capital cities

    Zeppelin towers outside of Orgrimmar and Tirisfal Glades

    Two brand-new Arenas featuring challenging new layouts, terrain hazards, and moving obstacles

    Guild calendar

    Hunter pet skill revamp

    New profession: Inscription

    As mentioned above, this is not a comprehensive list, just some of
    the major highlights. We’ll post the full patch notes as soon as
    they’re available. Regarding Inscription, please note that all Burning
    Crusade players will be able to select Inscription as one of their two
    professions and level up to a skill level of 375 with it. Upon the
    release of Wrath of the Lich King, players who purchase and install the
    expansion will be able to continue leveling in Inscription and the
    other professions beyond 375.
