    [5.1] MoP is on Second Base.

    The launch of MoP had enough new content skillfully created for, to use a baseball analogy, the game to make it to first.

    Now 5.1 is revealed, and MoP is going to make it to second.


    Not only are there going to be more than just 1 new daily hub, but the "probably won't happen" VP upgrades are slated for addition, pet battles are being updated, and another whole-new feature is being added (brawl clubs).

    At the rate Blizz keeps adding new content, MoP may well bring back the Vanilla days of near-constant new things to do.

    You don't create "justice" by destroying. That includes buildings, cars, or the careers of the people you want "justice" for.

    You meant VP right?
    Enjoyed Draenor questing. If you ignore the end of Nagrand, it's almost as good as 5.0.

    Fixed.

    Could have sworn they originally intended it to be JP.

    Based on the preview they did on it a while back, it's sort of like reforging. You can upgrade anything higher than a certain itemlevel, probably anything from mists of pandaria.

    You invest X valor points to improve the item level by Y levels, to a maximum of Z levels above the base item. I think in the preview it costed 250 valor to upgrade by 7 ilevels to a max of 14, but I'm sure those were example placeholder numbers.

    It's possible that they'll make PvP gear unable to be upgraded (or maybe make them upgradeable with conquest points?) but given the many many ways you can generate valor points now, maybe they won't.

    They already did. I have more things to do at 90 then I have ever had to do in the past 5 years of the game. With 5.1 they are adding even MORE things to do. WTF /hateblizz.

    I don't know's on third.



    WoW related, the analogy still made me think of this:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ekLO8BwxwE

    Dwarf: Hey im back!
    Elf: What is it?
    Dwarf: I just saw some mobs out there did you get a group together?
    Elf: Yea, I did but they have some pretty weird names, uh, lets see, Who's the tank, What's the mage, I don't know's the priest-
    Dwarf:Come again?
    Elf: Who's the tank. What's the mage. I don't know's the priest-
    Dwarf: You got these guys together and you don't even know their names?
    Elf: I do know their names.
    Dwarf: then whos the tank?
    Elf: Yea.
    Dwarf: no i mean the guys name.
    Elf: Who
    Dwarf: the tank
    Elf: Who
    Dwarf: The guy taking all the damage for us
    Elf: Who
    Dwarf: the guy with the huge sword
    Elf: Who!
    Dwarf: The tank!
    Elf: Who. Is. The. Tank.
    Dwarf: Thats what I'm asking you!
    Elf: Thats his name
    Dwarf: Thats who's name?
    Elf: yes.
    Dwarf: Then go on and tell me.
    Elf: Thats it
    Dwarf: thats who?
    Elf: Exactly.
    Dwarf: Ugh...all im asking, what is the name of the tank?
    Elf: No no. Whats the mage
    Dwarf: I'm not asking whos the mage!
    Elf: Whos the tank
    Dwarf: One class at a time!
    Elf: Take it easy
    Dwarf: I'm only asking you. Who. Is. The. Friggen. Tank!?
    Elf: Thats right.
    Dwarf: ok.
    Elf: alright.
    Dwarf: wait a minute...
    Elf: Now what?
    Dwarf: you didn't tell me the name of the tank
    Elf: yes i did
    Dwarf: Then whos the tank?
    Elf: yes
    Dwarf:...I'll ask you once more. Whats the name of the tank?
    Elf: Whats the mage.
    Dwarf: I'm not asking whos the mage!
    Elf: Whos the tank!
    Dwarf: I don't know!
    Elf: He's the priest, we're not talking about him.
    Dwarf: How did we get to the priest?
    Elf: You metioned his name.
    Dwarf: I metioned who's name?
    Elf: No. Who's the tank.
    Dwarf: What?!
    Elf: Whats the mage.
    Dwarf: I don't know!
    Elf: He's the priest.
    Dwarf: There you go to the priest again...
    Dwarf: Forget the tank for now. You got a rouge in the group?
    Elf: Yea, wouldn't be a group with out one
    Dwarf: tell me his name.
    Elf: Why
    Dwarf: Oh I just thought I'd ask ya'
    Elf: and I just thought I'd tell ya'
    Dwarf: Then who's the rouge?
    Elf: Who's the tank.
    Dwarf: I'm not asking-wait a minute...stick with the rouge.
    Elf: ok
    Dwarf: What's the name of the rouge?
    Elf: What's the name of the mage.
    Dwarf: I don't know!
    Elf: He's the-
    Dwarf: Priest! I get it!
    Dwarf: Just tell me the name of the rogue
    Elf: Why
    Dwarf: Because!
    Elf: Ohhh, hes our hunter
    Dwarf: *starts crying*
    Dwarf: You got a warlock?
    Elf: sure
    Dwarf: The warlocks name?
    Elf: Tommorow.
    Dwarf: You don't want to tell me today?
    Elf: I'm telling you now.
    Dwarf: Then go ahead.
    Elf: Tommorow.
    Dwarf: What time?!
    Elf: What time what?
    Dwarf: What time tommorow are you going to tell me who's the warlock?!
    Elf: Who's not the warlock Who's the-
    Dwarf: I'LL BREAK YOUR ARM IF YOU SAY WHO'S THE TANK!!!
    Dwarf: Whats the name of the warlock?
    Elf: What's the mage
    Dwarf: I don't know!
    Elf: He's the-
    Dwarf: Priest! Priest! Priest! *starts panting* you know...I have some healing powers.
    Elf: Really?
    Dwarf: Yea. Lets say we group together and attack Vexia, we cant wait for tommorw to attack so the tank starts taking damage for us, I see he's getting banged up, so being a good group member, I whip up a healing spell and cast it on who?
    Elf: Thats the first thing you've said right all day
    Dwarf: I don't even know what I'm talking about!
    Dwarf: I cast a healing spell on who?
    Elf: Naturally.
    Dwarf: Who?
    Elf: Naturally.
    Dwarf: Naturally?
    Elf: Naturally.
    Dwarf: So I cast my spell on Naturally?
    Elf: No,no, no you cast the spell on Who.
    Dwarf: Naturally.
    Elf: Now you got it.
    Dwarf: Thats what I said!
    Elf: ...you ask me
    Dwarf: I cast a spell on who?
    Elf: naturally.
    Dwarf: Now you ask me.
    Elf: You cast a spell on Who.
    Dwarf: Naturally.
    Elf: Naturally.
    Dwarf: Same as you! Same as you!
    Elf: calm down.
    Dwarf: So i cast my healing spell?
    Elf: Naturally.
    Dwarf: He better get it!
    Dwarf: I cast my spell on who but the spell wasn't strong enough so who ever is the tank gets killed, boo hoo sad story! Onyxia starts going after because, why? i don't know! He's the priest! And I don't care!
    Elf: Wait what did you just say?
    Dwarf: I said I dont' care!
    Elf: Ohhhh, he's our paladin!

    Dear Haters,

    Never, and I mean never underestimate Blizzard.
    @Ghostcrawler:Some advice: [My pet issue] is why there were sub losses is one of the weaker arguments players use. Players don't have that data.

    lets be honest its not just the haters who are suprised by this. i dont think even the most loyal of fans were expecting the next patch to be announced pretty much a week after launch

    At this new content rate Blizz will reach 12kk+ sub number. Lets see if we get 5.1-5.2 until 2013 ^_^.
    I hope we'll get 5.2 in december! (First MoP raid patch)

  16. #16
    This is a really good start into a new expansion. Let's hope that Blizz is keeping up. 5.2 in 12/2012 oder 01/2013 would be great. Keep it up, Blizz!

    Yes, I love it. Not every patch has to be some raid and dungeons. Vanilla had various content patches throughout with things like weather and holiday events.

    5am don't need raids all the time when we have so much more at our fingertips now. Sure raids are epic but we don't need them yet.

    Good old epic joke

    OP: Yeah pretty happy with what blizzard is doing as well at the moment!

    Don't quote a giant post like that. Snip it

    Why? The slow patch progression was pretty much one of the biggest whining points in Cataclysm. By targeting this Blizzard is trying to respond. I will reserve my judgement on this for further ahead. As it is now, it may be that Blizzard is really boosting the development cycle. But it also can be that they simply got a lot of content ready and will just gate it for patches further ahead to prove that now they have lots of patches. Imagine Cataclysm with 4.0 Blackwing Descent, 1 month later 4.1 with Bastion of Twilight and then 4.2 with Alakir. Would be exactly same content as it was in reality in 4.0 but it would create an illusion that they are working a lot on constant updates. Whatever is the truth, Blizzard is acting smart at this moment. However I will wait and see how the updates will roll for the next year.
