    Patch 5.2 pre download

    I just logged out and opened the launcher and it says it is downloading data for a new patch, does anyone know if it's 5.2 data?

    Even if it is 5.2 data coming in via the Launcher it's still a long ways away.

    Well it says downloading data for an upcoming patch, so I would assume upcoming patch would mean 5.2 since it's the next one, but that's just the logic talking.
    Waaaaah this guy was mean to me! Waaaaaaaaah!

    I'm mean because you're stupid.

    Yep, atleast 1 month I would say. But I guess they prep some so you won't have to download forever.

    Yeah I am downloading it now too. Probably going to be a bit bigger latter though.

    I wouldn't be surprised if this coming Tues (12th) or the following Tues (19th) we get a 2 week patch warning for Feb 26th or March 5th - they seem to want to get this patch out sooner rather than later. Given the IoT stage testing schedule, I'd say they are shooting internally for a March 5th release. I also have a feeling we are going to have ALL versions of the raid unlock in 4 subsections over the course of the first 4 to 5 weeks of the patch, meaning that they have a little extra time to test and patch 3/4 of the raid after launch.

    I imagine it's just pre-pushing completed assets. Probably artwork. Textures, models, etc. Stuff that won't change over the remainder of testing. Patch could still very well be over a month away.

    You mean I have room for text now?

    Probably just some finished models, like the new frog.

    5.2 is still weeks away. It won't launch until after the island is fully tested, so at least 2 weeks.
    Unsubscribed as of 03/10/2014.

    If you dislike where WoW is headed in your mind, quit. Really. Sitting around complaining about "promises" that may or may not have been made isn't doing anything to help your cause. It's just making you look more and more like the constantly complaining and perpetually offended.

    Because the person who posted the pic hadn't downloaded the latest patch 5.1.0a yet, and you probably had.

    I think you can click on "info" then "connection info" on the launcher.
    Look at the "completed", it shows the % completed and Gb.
