    Most people do not realize the talent and skill it requires to be in a top guild. Many of you think its only about time invested, but that couldn't be further from the truth.

    http://patchtime.wowachiever.com/ shows each of the patches, when they went into PTR and which dates they went live. Only one or two ever exceeded 8 weeks. This seems to be a very consistent 45-60 day testing timeframe for Blizz.

    Most people don't raid, and never, ever will. Like... probably 15% of the entire paying playerbase will ever do what you said. AT MOST. Probably a hell of a lot lower than that.

    Why in the holy fucking hell should design decisions be based around that :x

    Late February or early March.

    Wasn't there a twitter post from Ghostcrawler or someone else saying that when everything goes the way they planed they'll need about 2 months for a minor content patch and about 4 month for a major one. MoP was released end of September and 5.1 was released in December which are about 2 months. Taking the 4 months from the twitter post the patch should be released in end of March or beginning of April. There's much more to test than in the past. We have a new daily hub, two new world bosses with a new factionbased loot mechanic, new rares designed to be taken down by 5man groups, new scenarios and a new raid. That's a lot of content. Patch 4.2 only had a raid and a daily hub and 4.3 only had one raid and 3 new 5 mans. At the moment there's nothing new to test on the PTR apart from the world boss, which probably won't drop loot yet (dungeon compendium doesn't list any loot).

    I think the earliest it could possibly be released is Valentine's Day week, 6 weeks from today. In case it's close, I'd advise serious raiders who have actual human significant others to make plans during the first or second weekend in February, in order to get enough girlfriend/boyfriend points to ignore the relationship for a week or two once the patch drops.

    "Soon(tm)" is going to be the most accurate response. That said, Mid Febbary is my guess.
    Call to arms, the trumpets sound
    Hand puppets storm the base, flags up now cannons rage
    All clowns head for the rear, slingshots fire to the air
    Toy horses start the charge, Robot chessmen standing guard
    Crossfire to the marionettes, Slip into the edge of death...
