5.4 PTR: Orgrimmar and Razor Hill Changes, New Legendary Quests
2013/06/24 at 2:55 PM
Orgrimmar on the 5.4 PTR keeps getting more and more changes. In Patch 5.3, the Kor'kron had the troll section on lockdown, and on the PTR, they've extended their influence over even more of the city.
We also have some details on new legendary quests coming in Patch 5.4, which predictably have you spend time in the Siege of Orgrimmar, but also unexpectedly spend some time collecting
on the Timeless Isle, a new zone that's home to an upcoming pet tournament.
Check out what's new in our video below by Olivia, or hit the Description tab to read the specifics I've compiled, including a new conversation between Baine and Vol'jin discussing the Siege of Orgrimmar and Garrosh.
Gamon has moved from the Valley of Strength to the Valley of Wisdom. No longer simply cornered by the Kor'kron, he's being held at gunpoint by them.
The Valley of Spirits is still on lockdown by the Kor'kron, who have also begun tormenting vendors in the Valley of Strength. In particular, the goblin bankers are in a fight and several vendors are huddled in the streets.
There's an increased mil
Isle of Thunder Preview: PvE and PvP Dailies, Troll Transmog, Single-Player Scenarios
2013/02/14 at 9:46 AM
The 5.2 PTR is up to testing Stage 2 of the Isle of Thunder questing! We last previewed it during Stage 0, so there are some new things available such as the option to choose between PvE and PvP dailies, single-player scenarios tied to each phase, and the addition of troll-themed drops like
Forlorn Loa-Binder Cage
from Zandalari mobs.
PvE or PvP Daily Quests
Kirin Tor Offensive
let you choose between PvE and PvP dailies from a battle map near your respective faction leader. The following Quest UI pops up:
PvE quests send you to various areas around the zone to battle the Mogu, Trolls, and Saurok--which we've
, along with quirky things like dps buffs and disguises.
As for PvP quests, accepting any of these quests will flag you for PvP, even on a PvE realm. These quests send you into the heart of the enemy's base and while none of them specifically ask you to kill enemy players, you'll definitely be running into them as you kill enemy g
5.2 PTR: New Legendary and Isle of Giants Quests, Zandalari Rare Spawns
2013/01/11 at 10:43 AM
Today's PTR news is all about vanity items: rare Zandalari spawns were added to the PTR which have a chance to drop mounts, quests were added to the Isle of Giants allowing you to get mounts and pets, and we've also datamined some legendary and elite battle pet quests.
If you're looking for raid news, we'll have

Giant Dinosaur Bone
to get a unique mount and pet! 9999 bones seems a bit extreme, especially since the bones only stack to 500, so this could be changed in a future PTR build--the takeaway message here is that this area has grindy quests with cool rewards. As Alliance, I'm excited about that raptor mount!

5.2 PTR: New Daily Quests
2013/01/05 at 12:34 PM
We've got the first batch of 5.2 daily quests to share with you and one thing is for certain--you'll be killing a lot of Trolls. The majority of datamined quests cover daily quests associated with two new factions, the Kirin-Tor Offensive and the Sunreaver Onslaught. Several of these quests are in a very early stage, between their jokey names or missing descriptions, but other offer details about the Loa, Zandalari lore developments, and the Mogu.
There's also some information on the areas in Isle of the Thunder King--the Bestiary of Jelek appears to be a center for Zandalari forces, while the Court of Bones is home to Mogu Sorcerers. And this patch's poop quest is found in Ihgaluk Crag, home to the Saurok.
We also found a weekly quest and raid quest tied to the upcoming 5.2 raid, Throne of Thunder:
The Crumbled Chamberlain
. You there! Assist me. In life I was the keeper of keys for his majesty, the Thunder King. For my dedication, I was condemned to this stone form, forever forced to watch over these keys. Someone has desecrated my glorious body and sent pieces of it across the island. The thought of spending an eternity without my

While 5.1 only introduces two new factions,

Patch 5.1: Realm Event Time Changes, Transmogable Guild Cloaks
2012/11/28 at 12:34 PM
Today's 5.1 news round up covers everything from fun vanity items to event time changes. On the light-hearted side of things, we have information on a new disguise from
and transmoggable guild cloaks. On the more serious side of things, we have information on standardized region-wide times for events like the
Stranglethorn Fishing Extravaganza
, which returned in 5.1 after a hiatus due to CRZ complications, when to expect Brawler's Guild Invitations on the BMAH, and clarifications on the new Beastmaster dailies like
Beastmaster's Quarry: The Crane
And in sad news, we have confirmation from
Dave Kosak on twitter
that the Warlock "green fire" questline everyone was looking forward to was pushed back to 5.2.
