    So, 5.2 is out in two weeks

    Wondering what people's thoughts are on the timing here. Was this tier too short, or paced just right? If your guild isn't going to finish T14, are you okay with that?

    Personally, I would have preferred a longer break from raiding. My guild hasn't killed Elite Protectors yet, so we'll likely do that and then have a week off before 5.2 comes out and we're back to full time raiding.

    For the number of bosses in T14, maybe faster patches isn't the best idea. Most people had a problem with Cata patch lengths mostly because there were so few bosses. I think another month or two would be a better idea.

    They've always released major content patches simultaneously with arena seasons starting/ending. They haven't even announced season 12 ending, so why does anyone think it's anytime soon (at least this month)?

    We've been going strong up until Christmas came. Since the Christmas holidays, we haven't made any progress. Real life interferences, car accidents, computers dying, people wanting to take breaks... all those things made our progress stall.

    I'd have welcomed a few more weeks so as to at least be able to grab Shek'zeer FOS, but it seems that this will be the first tier since Sunwell that I will not complete. Sad. It was looking so good up until Christmas.

    Welp, I was wrong. In every one of these threads I spotted, I was SO SURE it would've been on 19th March.

    To be honest though? This is the 'good' kind of wrong. It's early! Yay!

    As for my guild's progression? Eh, could've been better, could've been worse. I've had fun while raiding, we'll continue to have fun in 5.2. That's what matters. We can always go back and finish up in T14 every so often. It's not a big deal.

    Personally, I am happy for the new tier. Nothing left to do here so might as well keep it moving!

    Well even if its not 26th, it should hit one or two weeks after, the topic is about general feeling that t15 is comin too soon while people maybe aren't done completely with t14 yet

    it seems pretty damn quick... we're not a hard core guild... but was hoping to get further than 12/16 heroic before the patch launched... I agree with the poster earlier that mentioned that players were mainly complaining about raid length due to the limited number of bosses... but with 16 i think another month would've been ok...

    just my 2c...

    If it is 100% confirmed, then I'm happy. I won't get my last BiS pieces, but I'll never have to do heroic Vizier again, or Heroic Sha, or the heart-attack in a can fight known as Heroic Windlord

    We got a late start on the tier and are only 11/16HC right now. We were just discussing last night that we should focus on finishing up Empress HC before 5.2, because we only have FOUR weeks...oops, guess that was a bit off.

    Oh well, should get Empress this week and maybe have time to knock out Lei Shi and Protectors before 5.2.

    On the plus side, after the guild collapse and re-form in this tier, we should hit the ground running in 5.2 and make a good push for progression, so I'm excited for that. Plus, 5.2 makes MoP a bit more alt-friendly, which I'm looking forward to as well

    Not exactly confirmed. If you read the very photo you linked, Bashiok says "It all depends on how testing goes" in response to "Is this firm 2 weeks or this loose approximation two weeks?" I don't deny that it won't happen in 2 weeks but there is a possibility that it gets pushed back.

    Amazing sig compliments of Alyajna!

    Too short. Should be about 2 weeks per boss.

    Cata's first tier lasted 29 weeks from Cata launch, with 12 bosses. Firelands lasted 22 weeks, for 7 bosses, without the start-of-expansion hiatus. Don't understand why we're only getting 22 weeks for 16 bosses now.

    Personally I really hate the idea. We just downed Tsulong and were about to progress on Sha HC, but 2 weeks seems to be a very short time intervall, I would have preferred a later date...
    Why do they have to push these damn patches out so fast?

    I think the only thing I don't like is that they're converting my valors to justice, but they aren't converting valor rewards to justice price rewards. This put's me on the pinch to use up all my valors before the patch without coming up too short or coming up with too many that will just be wasted.

    So, in short: the internet.

    This tier has been a little short, unless they keep this pace up. I'd had this tier to be short, for the next few tiers to last twice as long...
