    Another new raid in 5.4???

    Check this:



    Meeting stone says: "Vale Raid Meeting Stone"

    Will there be another, a second, raid in patch 5.4 beside Siege of Orgrimmar?
    I quess this is the lair of old god Y'Shaarj.

    I hope we get two raids next patch. And that we first need the kill Garrosh/Sha of Pride and then we unlock Y'Shaarj's lair or something.

    It could also be the next VoA style boss.

    I doubt that since the two other VoA-style bosses currently in MoP are World bosses..

    In The Model pre-view there's 2 sha models, one i guess is the sha of pride, which i guess will fuse with Garrosh to make a sha infused Garrosh and the other one i guess could be the Y'shaarj's model which might just be a HC only boss

    It's on the front page for 2 days now.
    There are multiple scenarios.. (no pun intended)

    - Possibly some entrance to SoO, so we don't actually have to travel to Durotar each time, or whatever.

    - If they keep up the trend, Sha of Pride is likely a new 15 minute world boss. Along with a new 2 hour respawn one, in that horrible yetanothernew islandwherewecantfly in 5.4.

    - or it's just Sha underground in the Valley.

    - or it's Y'Shaarj underground in the Valley.

    Just because some people want to keep on the discussion:

    - Blizzard's patch notes only reffer to one raid, so only ONE raid. Siege of Orgrimmar.
    - The first boss of the raid is something about the vale. Stated in the dungeon journal.

    the sha of pride is a boss itself. the other Sha of anger model is just odd. and garrosh will empower himself with Y'shaarj not the sha of pride and NO its not corrupting him. It is his own choice.

    The first 4 bosses of Siege of Orgimmar are in the Vale of Eternal Sorrows (Blossoms).

    OP, as its been said, this will be the entrance to the SoO raid. Nothing more need be said about it.
    Big thanks to Davillage for awesome signature

    Does orgrimmar move to vale of eternal blossoms? because this is starting to feel like a bait and switch.

    According to Datamined Journal we start in Vale and head over to Orgrimmar after we have found out that Sha of Pride has corrupted Garrosh.

    Raid begins with Garrosh -this is what it seems like- unleashing the Sha of Pride/destroying the Vale.

    From there we end up in Orgrimmar, then descend into the depths of the city to take down Douchebag McGee.

    ....no?

    We kill the Sha of Pride as the fourth boss.

    Garrosh is using Yshaarj's heart.

    He's using it as a WEAPON.

    He's not corrupted.

    of course, its another new raid with like 20 new bosses and a new item tier set that no dataminer noticed and that blizz never talked about.

    Yes, currently it refers to ONE raid. But it might be possible that we still get a surprise from Blizzard and get a second 'not yet revealed' raid later. Remember that Blizzard told us that patch 5.4 will be the last patch before the next expansion. And that the next expansion will be probably annoucned at the Blizzcon in november.
    If we get only 1 raid then that means that SoO has to cover like 4 or 5 months of gameplay assuming patch 5.4 gets released in august. And 4 or 5 months is a long time for one raid with the speed guilds clear the raids these days. So it's thinkable that Blizzard adds a second raid to fill in the gap.

    I'm 100% sure Siege is the last raid of the expansion.

    No, it's not possible. At this point, at least the bare bones of it would have to be in the PTR client. There's nothing there.

    What it COULD be
    - Could be SoO, but I find it a bit weird that a "siege of ORGRIMMAR" will take place in the Vale. (Granted, it can't be in Durotar as that would be really stupid, but it could be closeby)
    - Could be a place they're setting aside for a short raid in 5.5 (e.g., Ruby Sanctum after ICC)
    - Maybe a new, hidden, dungeon?



    What it WON'T be
    - Another raid for T16. The last thing Blizzard needs to do is design TWO raids for this tier.
    - A medium-large scale raid (unless it is, in fact, Siege of Orgrimmar). If it's not SoO, it will be small/tiny.
