World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria: Patch v5.2 Arrives on PTR

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe CitadelPosts: 23,008MMORPG.COM Staff Epic

World of Warcraft players who want to get a jump on trying out all the big changes coming with the v5.2 patch will want to head to the public test realm (PTR) to see it firsthand now that it's officially live. The patch brings The Isle of the Thunder King quest hub, a new raid and some pretty meaty changes to most of the game's classes.

New Raid: Throne of Thunder

Emperor Lei Shen, the Thunder King, has returned to wreak his vengeance on Pandaria. It falls to the heroes of the Alliance and the Horde to stop the newly resurrected tyrant and his Zandalari allies in the massive new raid: Throne of Thunder.

Throne of Thunder is a sprawling citadel housing 12 new raid encounters, and players that defeat Emperor Lei Shen in Heroic mode can earn the opportunity to face an additional 13th foe.

The Raid Finder version of the Throne of Thunder will be divided into 4 different wings.

Join the Shado-Pan Assault in their singular drive to see Lei Shen, The Thunder King, defeated once and for all, and gain access to impressive Valor reward items. Reputation with this faction can be earned only within the Throne of Thunder raid dungeon.

Please note: During the 5.2 PTR, this raid dungeon will only be available during a limited testing window. Keep an eye on our PTR Discussion Forum for details.

    Yay more tiers of gears making months of previous work obsolete.  Screw Vertical progression!

    Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

    Subscription Gaming, especially MMO gaming is a Cash grab bigger then the most P2W cash shop!

    Bring Back Exploration and lengthy progression times. RPG's have always been about the Journey not the destination!!!

    Vertical progression is what keeps wow on top.

    What keeps WoW on top is the millions of fans that were gathered when there was no competition, now people feel compelled to play it as it's been so long and don’t like change.

    I'm very impressed with the speed of these updates, Bliz really have stepped there game up it seems and that’s good for the fans.

    Meh, my PTR still says Cataclysm rather than Mists of Pandaria even though I just downloaded the update, love to know how Blizzard expects people to test MoP updates if they can't access MoP on PTR.

    Now people can dailies in their farm? Farming dailies?

    I like it that they add more and more world bosses.

    Mission in life: Vanquish all trolls - especially TESO, WOW and GW2 trolls.
