    Why is everyone responding "there will be no raid patch" as if that's an answer when the OP clearly included 5.1 and 5.3 in his timeline?

    5.5 is just as likely as 5.4.X at this point.
    5.4.1 is not a continuation of the story. They may decide that the stage between Siege and X5 might require a full story patch - in that case, they'd call it 5.5. If they decide it's not a full story patch yet, then it'll be 5.4.2 (or whatever).

    It hasn't been confirmed or denied either way yet, except that (as of the last interview) they weren't sure whether it would be called 5.5 or not.

    Pretty sure there'll be a patch 5.5 in December or January, probably with some preview of it at Blizzcon. I expect it will be a story patch along the lines of patches 5.1 and 3. I think it'll mostly focus on Garrosh' trial and an introduction to the new expansion threat.

    Also, v5.4.1 will most likely be released in 2 weeks, so, how does that affect "your" timeline?
    They did not say that. The only thing they said was that 5.4 will be the last Major content patch (meaning raid) of MoP. It is very likely that there will be a patch 5.5 that starts focusing on next expansions lore.

    The person you're quoting also is confusing a content patch with a raid patch. There's a difference.
    5.1 and 5.3 are still content patches - they continued the story and added new functions to the game. 5.1, Landfall, added those wonderful quest lines we went through and dailied through in Krasarang (nb: sarcasm doesn't go well to text). 5.3 added Battlefield Barrens and stepped the story forward. 5.2 and 5.4 were both content and raid patches.

    We still have story to finish up in Mists and an introduction to the next expansion to roll out - pretty sure those'll hit in one content patch. The Trial of Garrosh? I don't think they'll handwave it away into a book (oh god, I hope not).

    Well, they should clear Orgrimmar before Xmas event :P
    can you imagine Feast of Winter Veil in SoO DDD?

    so it might be some low content patch that will clear Orgrimmar from SoO stuff, make Vol'jin a warchief, redo some quests(where Garrosh took part), maybe add 2 or 3 questchains(something on timeless isle or trial of garrosh, or rebuilding alliance/horde forces) for maxlvl players but not much :P

    There will be a patch before the next expansion. It is unknown when there will be a patch before the next expansion. It is unknown what the patch before the next expansion will be numbered. The patch before the next expansion has a ruptured lung. The patch before the next expansion has a scar on his face. The patch before the next expansion has admired a thorned leather sword recently. The patch before the next expansion has admired a smooth silken mace recently.

    Do you not consider the update to Krasarang in 5.1 to be content? Plus, where is your source of them saying no 5.5? They've never said there won't be a 5.5, they said they're not sure, which is quite a bit different than an actual no. So, not sure what you're talking about.

    Be surprised if they don't do an official 5.5 patch - seems likely with the way Blizzard is doing their content now.

    I expect a quest-chain and maybe some new scenarios if we're lucky, but not a raid or dungeon.

    There are achievements for another PvP season in the game already, with a name for another set of PvP gear ("Prideful Gladiator"). So, it's possible we'll have another PvP season released in a patch before 6.0, even if there isn't a corresponding raid tier.

    I'm very mixed about this scenario, since it would mean this expansion will be going for quite a while.

    Blizzard also continuously reiterated their talking points about why flying in Azeroth would never happen pretty much up until the moment details about Cata got leaked.

    The fact is that Blizzard isn't some single-minded entity, nor are they bound absolutely to their design philosophies. Things change; people from the art department end up fielding interview questions that are better suited to the creative director, or the finishing department, etc.

    If they are anticipating that their next expansion will take a little longer to go gold than the development cycle demands, given that they've gotten hell for releasing unfinished content in the past, I wouldn't put it past them to throw together a token raid tier in a hurry to keep players busy until the beta.

    I think there will be a 5.5, because of their patch history for MoP.

    5.0 - Tier
    5.1 - Gearing
    5.2 - Tier
    5.3 - Gearing
    5.4 - Tier
    5.5 - Gearing
    6.0 - Tier
    ...

    Personally I think it'll serve to wrap up the major hanging thread from SoO (Sylvanas and Gilneas) and help bridge the gap in story between Pandaria (the continent, not the expansion) and whatever our new threat will be.

    His source is in fact legit, but his comprehension is wrong.

    Blizz said SoO would be the final RAID of MoP, not that 5.4 was the final patch.

    Wrong. They said there may be a patch depending on how next expansion is coming along. This could even mean another raid teir if the next expansion is taking to long.

    Yeah there will probably be a 5.5. I think I saw something somewhere about that....

    But yes, that's the most logical scenario, by far. I expect them to have a pretty big "pre"-patch event to introduce what's coming for us in 6.0.

    It would be on the PTR already if it was coming out in December.

    There will be at least one more patch before the expansion launches, maybe even a few, but they probably won't be until next year.
