30 Minute hearth?

Via MMO-Chamion:

Hearthstone cooldown changed to 30 minutes

Alright, all — we’re going to make the cooldown on hearthstones 30 minutes when 3.1.0 releases. Enjoy your sweet victory. (Source)

Ghetto Hearthing nerfed in 3.1 (Note: Going in an instance and leaving the group to get teleported back to the Inn won’t work anymore, it will only teleport you to the nearest graveyard)

We had a discussion with the developers about it this afternoon. Ghetto hearthing really has become a mechanic of sorts for so many players after being unchanged for so long. We don’t like that mechanic though because it obviously feels like a bug exploit. They all agreed the best way to move forward on it is just to reduce the cooldown on the hearthstone.

I promise you this change did not come as a result of us continually pestering them about the community’s reaction. It was something we all discussed and agreed was probably a good decision.

I won’t sit here and tell you we never cave to anything. That said, most changes we make that players view as us caving on would not be made if we were absolutely against it from a development standpoint.
