    Throne of thunder cinematic?

    The Heart of the Swarm cinematic got me thinking - are there plans to create one for 5.2? The last I remember was a tweet from Dave Kosak indicating cinematics are reserved for major raid boss patches:

    Well there's still at least a week till the patch lands, so still plenty of time. But yes, I'm very sure there's plans to release and create one. Even 5.1 had one, granted it was a small one, but it had one.

    They make them for most if not all raid patches, but I figured it would be out by now if they were doing one.

    5.1 Didn't have one, the Alliance and Horde landing cinematics weren't "trailers" they were part of the new quests.

    Never said they were trailers, nor did the OP. They were cinematics, and part of the new quests or not, that doesn't change a thing. Honestly, they should show all the cinematics in game, to make sure everyone sees them.

    They have even released them the night before the patch hits, so you'll have to wait. Now that I think of it, they really rarely release them a week(s) before its out, so yep wait.

    I can somewhat understand why ToC didn't get a huge, flashy and epic cinematic, but why they didn't give Dragonsoul one - I'll never understand. Sure, I guess that it got those 2-3 ones in game, but eh....

    They have been doing different "5.2 previews" every day for the past few days, leading up to 5.2, so I assume the cinematic will be apart of that soon.

    My God, what a horrible creation. People seeing what they want? Thank God they tried to shy away from that. I know it pisses me off when I'm in an heroic raid, yet in the back of my head all I can think is 'some casual player is playing a heroic dungeon and not wiping.' -Vodkarn

    5.1 had a clear excuse for not showing a new raid, but 5.2 isn't any different from any other patch.
    on a second note. if it's being released in 7 days, as the entire community expects. it's about damn time

    Ulduar, ToC, ICC, Firelands, and DS (although terrible) all had a cinematic, so I'm 99.99% sure ToT will have one

    They went further back than that. Naxx40 had one :P ZA, BT, Sunwell, etc.

    Safe to say they will keep doing them.

    They tend to release them on patch day, so we'll find out in a week.

    And further back than that! :P Arathi Basin patch had one, hell, the "WEATHER IN FOUR ZONES!!!" patch had a trailer. Though they didn't become proper cinematics till after Wotlk.

    Patience. You can expect it next week together with the patch. I hope it's as epic as Rage of the Firelands and Secrets of Ulduar trailers.

    I wish they stopped making patch cinematics, i find them embarassing.

    They'll more than likely have one, but they've always released them just before the patch, so I wouldn't expect it until Monday sometime (or Tues for EU).

    Who exactly are the cinematics embarassing?

    You, who has no creative input whatsoever in the process?

    Thought so...

    The in-game cinematics are usually very good, considering they're done with the crappy WoW engine. As for the video trailer and the cinematics they do for introductions ... stuff we saw in Diablo 3 and that we're seeing for SC2... in that, Blizzard has no competition. They are masters of the universe when it comes to cinematics. If only they weren't false advertising most of the time.
