So just a quick question to all of you because i'd like to hear some opinions about this topic.
Do you think 5.4 will be the last Patch of MoP?
If so; If 5.4 is released around early/late August and we assume the content will last for about 7 Months [Expansions last Raid Patches stay longer than previous tiers like ICC and DS] (average Patch length for MoP ~3Months with average Raid lenght about 6 Months) When will 5.5 hit the Servers and what is it all about?
- MoP Release September 25, 2012
- Patch 5.1.0 27 November 2012 (Lore Patch)
- Patch 5.2.0 5 March 2013 (Raid Patch)
- Patch 5.3.0 21 May 2013 (Lore Patch)
- Patch 5.4.0 ?[Augustish/early Sep](Raid Patch)
And with the average MoP Patch lenght we could see 5.5 around November/December wether it is a lore or a little filler Raid (Sunwell sized Patch unlikely for 5.5 since 4 Months for SoO would be a little short)
So the big question now is: What will come with 5.5;
A pre expansional Lore patch?
A standard Lore Patch with 5.6 including another Raid á la -surprise after Illidan now there is Kil'Jaeden waiting-
A little filler Raid like Ruby Sanctum to fill some time before next expansion hits.
Blizzcon is in November, when does the Beta for the new expansion start?
Will the expansion be announced at Blizzcon, at Gamescom or PAX Prime?
Some ppl are speculating that the new expansion would hit in Spring 2014. If that is the case and 5.4 will be infact the last Raid we will see a 5.5 lore Patch around Nov/Dec BUT when does the Beta for the new expansion starts then? Beta time is about 4-6 Months...
