Can't understand what they are doing honestly. Delivering patches so fast may be leading to the end of the expansion very very soon...are they tired of World of Warcraft? maybe they want to get rid of it as soon as possible? This makes me sad :(

Delivering patches so fast may be leading to the end of the expansion very very soon...are they tired of World of Warcraft? maybe they want to get rid of it as soon as possible? This makes me sad :(They've promised faster patches and expansions since Wrath but have been unable to deliver on that promise until now. It might be a bit of a shock, but they seem to gotten really efficient at testing. The goal is a new tier every 4 months and a mini content patch every 2.
The ThunderKing has risen.HAS. Risen is the past tense. What they want here is the future-perfect which is implied from the sentence above, or maybe just the plain future. The ThunderKing will rise.

The ThunderKing will rise.no they dont, considering the fact he was risen by the zandalari trolls in kun-lai as part of the zone's quest content.personally im glad they picked it up this soon, cause the final quest in the north-eastern kun lai abruptly ended in my opion. the Thunder King had risen, lorewalker cho gets all worried but no follow up quest, quite anticlimatic.
NO MORE TROLLS
Trolls, why did it have to be Trolls?
Come one big non-corridor raid, would love one that feels like Ulduar or naxx, or even black temple.
Usually the word "Prophet" in WoW is related to either Loa or Old Gods. I'm curious as to how they'll do this, and hoping, that we actually do not see an Old God.Everyone has their taste. I, for one, would not only like to see another Old God, but, like others said, expect it to have some ties. I mean really, all these Sha out of nowhere? Pandaria may have been a hint at KFP, but it is not a separate game. Blizzard would not likely ruin it by making Sha "reasonless", and since most evil manifestations so far had something to do with Old Gods(well, except for Arthas, who is a demonic creation) - I would expect Old Gods to be reasonable conclusion. However, as Wrathion has shown in the very first dialogue scene, the Azeroth was attacked... from outside. Maybe it was somewhat for better vision, but it may also be true that demonic influence may be at play. Once again, something has produced Sha. They are not the stuff that arouses when you get trolled. Be it a beacon(machine) or curse or exactly creation, something has had it's play on Pandaria. A good note is also that Sha were... quite ancient. Mogu tried to control them, Shaohao simply defeated them, much like Titans did with Old Gods. They rise again, get their arse kicked for loots and they get low for a while. Maybe cliche, maybe something more.
Can't understand what they are doing honestly. Delivering patches so fast may be leading to the end of the expansion very very soon...are they tired of World of Warcraft? maybe they want to get rid of it as soon as possible? This makes me sad :(Strange logic. So they want to work overtime to kill something? When they seemingly worked not good enough, but to keep it going?Also - there is no rapid content. So far there has been only 3 months into the expansion. The PTR starts in January. Not earlier than 15, I would presume, who'd work on holidays. PTR does not last a week. At least a month usually, and depending on the content - up to season and more. Of course, one patch won't take long, but I am fairly sure - we will not see 5.2 earlier than February. That makes it about 5-6 months since release. Patch times were different over the course of the game history, but looked back at Cataclysm - it was released in December, with Firelands out in Summer. Which is about 6 months with Zandalari patch 4.1 in between. Roughly the same as what's happening now. Maybe now it will be 1-1.5 months shorter, but honestly, if you have not cleared at least normal in 5 months... change realm. Play better. Change goals. Hardcore or progressive guilds who aim for Cutting Edge are already way over the half to full heroic, and they dedicate themselves to it. If they do not make it - it's their fault, not the content's. And I do not expect nerfs until a week or two before 5.2, when Blizzard will give green light to casuals to hit 16/16 and red light to Cutting Edge. If you are just an average raider, who has cleared normal and entered heroic progress - you go as you go. Nobody will keep the content as long as your guild needs to feel bored of progress. You can always come later for your Delvers or Fearless'. I happen to be in the crisis middle, being previous rapid starter of 6hc, but currently impossible to progress, and I'd be happy to see 10-12/16hc, with a Delver title as casual achievement by the time of 5.2. Better than nothing. Any heroic raider, even if he is just roadblocking on Garajal, can get it(Delver) by 5.2, and that will be the measure of his\\his guild's capacity. Then new content - new interesting stuff. Cheer up!
wait, early january? They werent kidding on faster content. Did not having some big pre patch event gave them enough time to come up with this so fast? I think im seeing a change in blizzard I hope it turns out to be really good then.oops misread that part about PTR but still fast though. This picture looks awesome though.Cant waitNo, the fact that they didn't actually put any content into the first "content patch" gave them time to do this. Nothing is coming at us any faster except the patch numbers.sorry to burst your bubble but dailies are content whether you like to think so or not. Actually a lot of ppl like the new reputation. It has a great story to it as well.Only in terms of semantics. Dailies are what they have always been: filler and gating. Nobody who ever asked for "more content" during the lull between patches was asking for more dailies. When people were talking about the end of DS being boring, they were talking about 9 months without a new raid, not 9 months without mandatory dailies. Blizzard knows that, and you know it, too. Nobody could possibly be legitimately obtuse enough to think otherwise.You can enjoy the new rep system if you want, nobody is trying to stop you, and I agree, MoP has a great storyline. But please stop pretending that dailies are content as if that's what people want or expect when they ask for "new content." Playing the semantics game to try to twist words around to make you appear right only makes you appear to be slow. You're smart enough to do the math. We're not getting "more content, more quickly." They're serving us our side dishes and calling them appetizers, but they aren't giving us more food. I'm not saying it's a bad model, but it isn't what they're advertising. We're not getting 'more food' and we're not getting our meal any faster, we're just getting it in a different order. We're still waiting 4-5 months to get a new raid, just as we always have, and the raids we're getting now tend to be 6 bosses instead of the 10-12 we used to get. So, like I said, nothing is coming at us any faster except the patch numbers.
Can't understand what they are doing honestly. Delivering patches so fast may be leading to the end of the expansion very very soon...are they tired of World of Warcraft? maybe they want to get rid of it as soon as possible? This makes me sad :(Don't worry, it's nothing like that. Under the old model, content patches would take roughly 4-6 months and would release a large content item (generally a raid) plus some smaller filler items (like some dailies or heroics) all at once. What they're doing now is releasing the filler first after 3-4 months and then the raid another 2-3 months later. It's the same amount of content and the same amount of time between raids as it has always been, they're just releasing filler earlier to keep people busy while they wait. As an example, compare 5.1 & 5.2 with 3.1. Patch 3.1 released 5 months after wrath launch and contained the Argent Tournament daily quest hub and the Ulduar raid. 5.1 released the Landfall daily quest hubs and 5.2 is releasing the Throne of the Thunder King raid. PTR should be up "early January" so assuming that it hits live after only one month and releases February, we're looking at... *drumroll* 5 months after MoP launch for them to release an Ulduar-style raid. Sound familiar? The only difference is that they're releasing the filler first to keep folks occupied while they finish up the raid. Again, not a bad model, and I think that overall it's a good change. However, there's no need to pretend that it's some earth-shattering new change of pace or an increase in content, because it isn't really either of those things. So, um, yeah... relax, man, it's not the end of the World (of Warcraft).
Oh god, it seems so mysterious and amazing..Can't wait!
This one was really easy to predict but more Zandalari is just lame, I expected a mogu/construct/titan raid.PS: I don't want to kill Hakkar AGAINDon't worry, Ulduar-style will be worth it.Only if it has an Algalon-style bo- oh wait that's already been done this expansion =(
That is SO FREAKING COOL! Can't wait!
