Does this bring you up to date or does it require purchasing all of the other warcraft titles?
No, you must purchase all the other WoW titles before you can use Cataclysm. I just purchased the WoW Battle Chest for $20 on eBay which includes the original game + the Burning Crusades Expansion. I recommend finding a deal on the Battle Chest if you need to start a new account. I have yet to find a good deal on the Wrath of the Lich King expansion.
WOLK had an online deal not too long ago for $10 upgrade. It was thru blizzard specifically. I upgraded one of the kids accounts just in case they wanted it later. Might wanna check there periodically while you are leveling.
