Do You Hear What I Hear?

5.2 Live. This as close as you can get :D

5.2 will deploy on the PTR in January. They weren't joking about the updates.

Right now, this is as close as you can get to the Island of the Thunder King. Yes, I'm going to stick my neck out and say the content is already in game, and has been for a while, but you won't have noticed it because, frankly, you didn't know it was there. However, the signs are, even as I type, with the constant sound of thundery ambience as accompaniment. You, see, its been on the map since we started.

You will be here. Ho yus.

If you do Shado-Pan Dailies, you'll be very familiar with the island south of the 5.2 area: there's lightning everywhere. I think it's fair therefore to assume that if you head north from here you'll run into an island that's looking large enough to house daily quests as well as an instance: are we heading for another Isle of Quel'Dailies as we had back in TBC?

The question then becomes what we can reasonably expect from 5.2. Fortunately we won't have long to wait before there are answers. For now, feel free to go stare at the Island yourself but be warned, it's shrouded in Pandaria's mists right now and any attempt to fly towards it will dismount you, and there are some VERY nasty eels swimming in the water...

Blimey, they weren't kidding about keeping the updates coming. Neat touch to have the zone there waiting, teasing us with its presence and farting in our general direction.

I'll go have a shufti next time I'm doing Shado-Pan dailies. Think of the organisation in 'UFO' if it helps with the spelling. :-)

I wonder if it's been there all along or will be updated to the servers when it comes live. I mean, I think they've been working in a very short schedule so that it seems like some things might have already been done.

Anyway, I'm pleased MoP is delivering such great content in a short time frame. Let's see if they'll be able to keep it up until the end of the expansion. =P
