    Release date for 5.2?

    Anyone have an idea of when to expect 5.2 launching on live servers?

    probably another month or 2 since it only just got released into ptr not long ago.

    They probably will test every raid encounter except the very last one 4 times (10,25,h,nh). More often if it's heavily bugged. At least 6 weeks if I had to guess

    Are any bosses even out for testing yet?

    I would bet around march

    5.2 will prob be out this time next month, maybe 4 weeks

    it wont be march, blizz have said they want patches out faster, if it is march then that is 6 months between tiers, they said they wont do that anymore

    also the ptr went live on 3rd of jan, mid feb would mean its been 6 weeks, thats what blizz have in mind for time frames


    the days of 8-10 weeks of ptr is gone


    so ye i am 100% sure wit will be out in 4 weeks time, dont forget guys that the next expansion is due march 2014, which means if 5.2 hits in march they have 7 months to get two tiers of raiding out after 5.2

    so ye i predict around 13th of feb (eu)

    The only reason these type of threads exist is to bump post counts, at this point I think that everyone is pretty much aware that when a PTR comes, the final patch is about 1-2 months away. Asking about it literally a few days after the PTR starts is pointless.

    I'm surprised you can speak at all with so much bullshit flowing out of your mouth.

    In response to your prior post, 6 months is 'exactly' what they have stated the timeline to be. Or rather, 2 months + 4 months (2 months for a non-raid patch (5.1), 4 months for a raid patch (5.2)). 5.1 was released in late November, so 4 months after that is late March. This is further supported by how almost every patch hits PTR roughly 2 months prior to hitting live servers. 5.2 went on the PTR in early January: 2 months after this is early March.

    Using a date between the two (and choosing a Tuesday, the usual patch days in the US) would mean we can expect 5.2 on either the 12th March or 19th March.

    This is all using widely known information stated by blues, and numerous precedents set by nearly every single PTR-to-live servers lifespan for patches. What sources are you using for your claims of the next expac being 'due march 2014, 16 months between expansions'? Or the claim that 'the beta for the new expac is due around september'? I have heard of no such information from reputable sources. Please, feel free to provide sources to these claims to refute my argument. I would love to see them.

    No they didn't. All they said was that they wanted expansions to be quicker (true), but they never gave any specific timing for the next 3 expansions, nor of any specific patches. The only thing they've given us (and have stuck to so far) is the timing of 2 months for a non-raid patch, then 4 months for a raid patch.

    This would mean 5.2 is released in March, then 5.3 in May, 5.4 in September, then who knows when for the next expansion (assuming 5.4 is the Siege of Orgrimmar, the final raid).

    To refute your claims further:

    WotLK was announced 1 year, 3 months prior to its release
    Cataclysm was announced 1 year, 4 months prior to its release
    MoP was announced 11 months prior to its release

    Source: WoWpedia

    This would mean, if your March 2014 estimate is accurate, we should've either had an announcement already or expecting one very shortly. Since the hype machine hasn't even started yet (consider that for each of these announcements there had already been a ton of hype generated for many months prior, f.ex. the copyrighting of the names of the expansions), it's pretty safe to say you are entirely wrong.
