    Has Dread Raven and Dread Hatchling - basically confirming these are the CE/Digital Deluxe rewards for Warlords.

    How does it confirm that mount is a CE reward? PTR includes lots of Blizzard Store strings.

    The fact that there is a matching mount and pet (just like the Imperial Quilen and Quilen Cub for Mists CE & Digital Deluxe versions).

    Combined with the boost to 90 functionality = pre-orders for Warlords soon after 5.47 hits live servers.

    Here's the first clue

    • Dread Raven: Summons and dismisses an Imperial Quilen. This mount changes depending on your Riding skill and location.

    So what do you think? We're about a month away (or less) from pre-orders? Can't imagine there's much beyond the boost-to-90 stuff to test; maybe some PvP stuff.

    I'm not so sure. I don't think they'll want to have preorders available until they have a date ready. This is probably the last patch before 6.0 (or a 5.9 if they go that route) so they'll want to have it in place for when they turn on preorders.

    They will also not open up pre-oders without actually haveing Beta, or atleast I doubt it. Very much infact.

    There's a growing sense that Beta is going to be a lot sooner than soon(tm). It's feasible it'll have started before 5.4.7 is live.

    Yeah makes sense.

    I'm going to guess the pet will look like a cross between the Anzu mount and the Ji-kun hatchling.

    Maybe an announcement next week? Or the first week of February?

    As I said above, I feel it's more likely that this is the last patch before 5.9/6.0 and they want to get the preorder assets in place. I tend to think preorders won't happen before a release date, and I doubt we'll have a release date until the Beta has been going for a good amount of time.

    Actually, good chance Blizzard does the pre orders once the "buy a 90" tech is stable on a PTR build even without a release date. Giving everyone who preorders the free 90 immediately, which is what the plan is, would actually help a bit for sub retention by giving players a free character to start gear progression on. Many players don't have lots of alts, and some don't have any at all, because of the leveling process, so a free 90 is a big deal during this lull.

    I can't imagine this PTR will last very long. Less than a month I'd say.

    Also, Battle Fatigue and Base Resilience got boosted in the notes. New PvP season once it's live I'm guessing.


    WoD pre-sale and the first beta invites will probably hit when this 5.4.7 goes live.


    Biggest question here though is what about the introductory experience for freshly boosted 90's? Will that be included in this PTR? That could extend testing time by quite a bit.

    I'm thinking this probably won't happen until WoD launch (if at all). The dataminers would have found elements of this system in the build if Blizzard was planning on implementing it now.
