    If 5.3 is anything like 5.1 (a 2 month wait) then it should be April 30th.

    It's looking to be May 7th at this point. Generally theres about 2 weeks notice before a patch hits, and I haven't seen a release candidate on the PTR yet, although I imagine we'll be seeing one sometime this week, as well as some evidence it's coming.

    It's a patch like 5.1. Unless your realm is expceptionally slow with Isle of Thunder, it's probably time for it.

    Well all but one scenario is working, and the all the quests seem fine.

    Yup May 7th is what I think as well based on the timeline and the fact that there isnt a release client on PTR yet. If the Release client comes up fairly soon then we may get April 30th but I think the 7th is more likely.

    Battle on the High Seas is down due to bugs and things not working.

    I would lean towards sometime in May as well, probably late though. I had a number of run-throughts of LFR Terrace of the Endless Spring before 5.1 came out, I expect a few more LFR Throne runs before 5.3.

    While I want a 13% flat DPS buff to ret paladins, it also means 5.4 is closer and I haven't killed Lei Shen on normal yet. It will also make holy unplayable for anyone who's not full ToT geared. Blizzard's logic: because high end raiders are pulling too big numbers with their heroic thunderforged gear, lets nerf anyone else too.

    How is it early? It isn't a raid patch and there are no new dailies being added. It is just the pvp revamp and some other things along with some quality of life changes. Also we get the upgrade npcs back. It's fine to release it whenever.

    Yeah I think April 30th is cutting it close since there still no release candidate, but I fully expect to see it up this week, the following week at the latest. It seems they're just about wrapping everything up.
