2013/03/04 at 5:56 PM
Patch 5.2 is going live on March 5th and we've got you covered so you don't feel overwhelmed with all the new content!
This patch has a new troll-themed raid with amazing bosses and epics, as well as a server-wide War Effort to unlock more non-raid content. There's new transmog gear, mounts, pets, and legendary rewards--as well as an island filled with dinosaurs.
As for lore, the Mogu have teamed up with the Zandalari on the Isle of Thunder, and while the Alliance and Horde are worried and fighting back, they're also caught up in a feud as a result of the Dalaran fallout in 5.1.

Patch 5.1 is live today and we've got you covered on all the changes! While there's no new raids or dungeons this patch, there's plenty of things to keep players busy. There's a completely new way to increase the ilvl of your gear, new factions to grind reputation with for gear and mounts, dozens of new pets to collect, and solo PvE challenges with the Brawler's Guild. And if you've been curious to get back to the conflict between the Alliance and the Horde, new questlines and scenarios will cover these factions clashing on the shores of Pandaria.
We've got summaries of all the new content below, as well as links to blue posts and Wowhead's comprehensive PTR coverage.
Patch Notes and Overview
Two new factions offer new gear rewards and mounts while developing the Alliance and Horde conflict in Krasarang Wilds.
Players can permanently increase the ilvl of their gear through currency. Wowhead has developed several tools to display these stat increases for you.

Patch 5.0.4: Account-Wide Achievements, Tier 13 Bonuses
2012/08/29 at 1:17 PM
We're taking a closer look at the new account-wide achievement system and some other changes we found while playing yesterday. Highlights include:
Realm-first titles are account-wide, like Death's Demise. Blizzard stated in the past that they weren't in favor of doing this, so this is a big surprise.
Dragon Soul is up to the 35% buff and
Glory of the Dragon Soul Raider
no longer requires
Heroic: Spine of Deathwing
Heroic: Madness of Deathwing
Many Tier 13 set bonuses changed in light of the talent tree revamp.
Have Group, Will Travel and flask guild perks are gone.

2012/08/28 at 12:46 PM
5.0.4 is live today and we have an extensive guide to everything new! While there's no new raids or gear in this patch, many things will keep you busy. Class abilities, talent trees, and glyphs have been drastically changed, so it's good there's a month before Mists of Pandaria to familiarize yourself with the changes! If achievement-hunting is more your thing, all achievements are account-wide in 5.0.4, as well as many mounts, pets, and titles.
Below, you'll find consolidated versions of our 5.0.4 feature coverage, as well as patch notes, videos, class guides, and links to blue posts.
Patch Notes and Overview
The talent system received an extensive overhaul: players get one talent every 15 levels now, for 6 maximum in MoP. Specialization and core class abilities have changed as well.
Prime glyphs are removed and many new minor vanity glyphs are added.
Achievements are now account-wide and some can even be completed across characters. In addition, many mounts, pets, and titles are account-wide as well.
