    What Do You Expect from 5.2?

    Couldn't think of a better title, hopefully no one gets the entitled impression from it. Basically what do you hope/want/think is going to come in 5.2? First of all, Blizzard said 5.1 is a "smaller patch" and thus was easy to get out to the public, only 2 months after release. 5.2 is clearly a bigger project and likely won't arrive for 4-6 months. So, here's what I personally think might come:

    - New raid (obviously) (12-14 bosses?)
    - New storyline progression quests
    - Legendary continuation
    - New battleground

    What else could come? New world pvp areas/opportunities, maybe a new arena map? Maybe a feature that's completely new?

    Thoughts?

    5.2 is a huge Zandalari Raid from everything they've been hinting.

    So.

    Yeah.

    And I mean, if you were good at raiding, you'd have gear.

    So.

    I mean.

    There's that too.

    New player models, new 5 man dungeons and maybe a raid would be nice.

    I'm personally expecting the 5.2 patch raid to only be 8 bosses just because every patch raid in cataclysm only had 8 bosses.

    A new raid. Isn't that what usually happens?
    'Lord Sargeras, sweep your molten fist through this world, so that it may be reborn in flames and darkness!'
    'So the light's vaunted justice has finally arrived.'

    They've been saying since when Mists launched the next raid to be added is near Ulduar size.

    They saw Player's complaints that, after Cata's smaller raid design, and the players asking for big raids, they'd make more big raids again.

    And this way they can split up the raid into "wings" for LFR.

    Things work out perfectly.

    I'm expecting 10-12 bosses honestly.

    Pretty sure there is a blue post out there that stated they felt they needed to supply larger raids this time around.

    New raid about size of Ulduar.
    Main antagonist Mogu, Zandalari and some sort of "godly" power (Old Gods/Titans).
    A bit of Aliance versus Horde theme.
    Three or Four new dungeons
    Two new Scenarios.
    Cool Bat Mount for Raid Glory.
    And (my favourite) daily quests!

    Yep.

    -2-3 new 5 mans involving the trolls&mogu alliance
    -At least twelve bosses in the thunderking raid (I was promised a Pony!)
    -New dailies with reward raiders do not need, but casuals (lfr geared people) can get upgrades from (hopefully involving some cool story elements like the Landing Dailies)
    - a new scenario
    - maybe even a battleground?
    - green fire
    - more brawlers guild bosses. Invitation to the inner circle can be bought from the blizzard store

    Probably Thunder King raid. I hope for new dungeons/battlegrounds and for some new major gaming stuff like Transmog in 4.3

    In my opinion, small raids only work for the first tier anyway. 16 bosses for the first tier and then for the second it should be a big raid. Maybe not 16 bosses, but 10-12 is how it should be, to balance it out. 6 bosses in a single raid for an entire tier would be pretty silly.

    Yarr, at least we finally agree on something.

    Although Firelands was only 7 bosses, it was obvious how much work they put into that patch.

    And despite the gripes of Dragon Soul, it was still a solid raid.

    Zarhym tweeted they might remove some transmog restrictions
