5.2 PTR: Thunder Isle Zone Preview
2013/01/10 at 1:47 PM
In this latest PTR build,
Isle of Thunder
is open for testing. It's an island with faction hubs and daily quests, similar to
Isle of Quel'Danas
, and we were able to take screenshots of all the new populated areas, mobs, and architecture!
Check out our
list of 5.2 daily quests
for the two new Thunder Isle factions!
There is a weekly quest,
The Crumbled Chamberlain
, that players can pick up from a broken Mogu artifact spawning anywhere around the zone. It rewards you with
Key to the Palace of Lei Shen
, and as you search the island, the key periodically whispers and taunts you.
There are also randomly-spawning treasure chests,
Trove of the Thunder King
, which can contain a
Shan'ze Ritual Stone
, used for summoning elites around the island.
Completing a day's worth of dailies for your faction rewards you with
, which can contain funny items like
Regarding Prohibited Magics
Isle of Thunder
: This is the daily hub for the new Horde faction in 5.2, the Sunreaver Onslaught, led by
. Many familiar faces from Dalaran are present such as
Uda the Beast
High Arcanist Savor
Patch 5.2: Thunder Isle Teaser from Blizzard, PTR in January
2012/12/21 at 2:11 AM
Blizzard woke us up in the middle of the night to share this sweet teaser pic of Thunder Isle, the new raid dungeon in 5.2. From this picture, we can also learn that the 5.2 PTR is hitting soon, right on the heels of the holidays. Blizzard really seems to be sticking to their promise of delivering new content patches quickly.
Here's their official statement:
Happy Holidays from the World of Warcraft team! Here’s a small present to tide you over until the new year.
We can't tell
much about the raid theme from this picture, besides that it has really awesome Pandaren-themed architecture with some Mogu statues in the courtyard--what do you think the new raid theme could be? Several devs have hinted that they were inspired by Ulduar.
We've seen the Thunder King alluded to in a few places already, such as in Golden Lotus quests like
Battle Axe of the Thunder King
, legendary quests like
The Thunder King
, and archaeology (
Collector: Edicts of the Thunder King
). Known as Emperor Lei Shen, the Thunder King was a powerful mogu leader who defeated all of his rivals with the aid of a mysterious relic, and was resurrected by
at the Isle of Reckoning in Mists.
