While I’m not in the Beta for Cataclysm, I try to keep up on all the new changes and notes that filter through. As I read through the General Changes section of the new beta build, this caught my eye:

-Ammo has been removed from the game

Since Blizzcon 09 there has been no follow up news (that I have seen) about ammo no longer being a consumable.  We can hope this note is a good sign that we are close to that path or this could be an evil joke just to tick off Hunters in Beta.
