Two Weeks


Remember the post about approximate times for the Patch? I reckon that they're not that approximate after all. I reckon, looking at this post from Bashiok, we've got a fortnight until 5.2 ^^

This is mildly alarming, if truth be told, mostly because it means I won't be done with the Black Prince quest line on P by then. However, this handy-dandy guide has answered a couple of questions that I had in the back of my mind:

  • New Raid needs 480 to enter
  • When Blizzard say 'you’re not going to benefit by waiting for the down-conversion to pick up any current Valor items' it is time to upgrade stuff.
  • This guy enjoyes labelling his pictures almost as much as I do
  • Lots of reiteration of changes, reduction in costs and general 'look, read this and you'll learn something' pointers.

I'm going to be honest: Blizzard should really do more stuff like this. It brings the entire process of change to a level that is easy to grasp, and gives people a clear indicator of what they ought to be doing well ahead of time. Even if you don't spend time pouring over class changes and Patch Notes reading this guide will set you in extremely good stead for what is upcoming. Needless to say, if they keep adding content at the speed they are, it can only be a good thing that there's more information forthcoming from the source.

It's also going to do an awful lot of blogging sites out of a job ^^

My opinion on release for the new raid can only be summed up by everyone favorite fire lord.

Too soon.

I agree that it is nice to know when it is coming instead of guessing. Even more so when they are removing content, the upgrade vendors, when it comes out.
