Or Blizzard decided that patch. 5.4 isn't the last patch and we get another one.
How did this even get to two pages? The question was answered in the first response :S
The Siege of Orgrimmar raid starts in the Vale and eventually moves to Orgrimmar itself, or at least beneath it(?).
SoO will most likely be the last raid this expansion but 5.4 won't be the last patch. And 4-5 months for SoO is fine, imo. Most people won't even clear it on normal in the first 2/3 months.
That's the entrance to Siege of Orgrimmar. First four bosses are in vale, last 10 are on Orgrimmar itself. Personally I'd rather just see it split into two raids but...
There are two types of people in the world: People who like Sylvanas, and adults.
I'm convinced Garrosh won't be corrupted.
Quote me on it.
He's just a villain.

They've been working on the next expansion for a WHILE now.
Next Expansion will be our next Spring. Quote me on that.
That gives Siege about 7-8 months out.
They said they want to put out content much quicker.
If anything, there will be a 5.5, but not another raid.
At 14 bosses in length, some of them looking absurdly brutal if the dungeon journal is anything to go by, (Paragons especially looks to be a doozy) it'll be plenty tough.
This is the Siege of Orgrimmar Entrace, It starts in Pandaria the raid, so this is the entrace.
Having the entrance to SoO in the vale makes quite a lot sense of especially if the raid takes place in the Vale at first. But also because it's conveniently placed for both the Alliance and the Horde. Putting it in Durotar would be kind of awkward for the Alliance, and they don't really have much space in Caverns of Time left.

Well the Vale is destroyed for 5.4 so maybe part you fight some of the Bosses there before Sieging Orgrimmar. There might be a cutscene where people mount up Cloud Serpents or so, then a loading Screen, and then you are in Org.
I mean Dragon Soul takes place in Dragonblight, Coldarra, and the Maelsrom but the Entrance is in neither of those.
Blizzard Logic I guess, jsut like a Bear Mount dropping from a Lynx Boss as opposed from the Bear Boss.
Blizzard never said 5.4 was going to be the last patch. Also there are transition patches like we had going into the expansions so wet can surely expect to see a patch 5.5. More on topic, there is no extra raid. Read the patch notes especially the dungeon journal entry. That location is part of SoO
I have to say though I kind of prefer if it was a 4-boss raid (Vale) and then a... 9? 10? However many bosses in SOO itself, just to have two places to go each week. Vale could have been slightly easier than SOO to make it easily farmable while you're touching the proper raid.
Really don't know why they don't have multiple raids per tier anymore outside of the initial launch. It was a really neat idea and let them stagger the difficulty.
