04/01/2013 alle 11:56
Today we have a video by Lore of the
Isola dei Giganti
, the mysterious island to the north of
Massiccio del Kun-Lai
. This island is pretty abandoned for now, but has some lush jungle foliage and the world boss
, a huge dinosaur. You can read about

Dungeon Journal preview
Transmog Weapon Restrictions Changed
Last month, Blizzard tweeted about possible transmog restrictions being lifted in 5.2:
Removing main-hand/off-hand Xmog restrictions maybe by 5.2. Also allowing Xmog of weaps w/ similar anims (2H axe/2H sword, etc).
Problem right now is fist weapons can be quite big, & Monk anims are detailed enough that these weapons cause bad art clipping.
I discussed w/ @Ghostcrawler & he's going to see if we can make polearm Xmog work for War/DK/Ret weapon types. Want to!
While transmogging Off Hand or Main Hand weapons to One Hand weapons wasn't possible on the PTR, we realized that over 600 Ma
5.2 PTR: New Spell Effects
03/01/2013 alle 13:23
Several new and redesigned abilities got interesting spell effects on the PTR, so we took screenshots and Lore made a video of them! Here's the ones we thought were the most interesting:
Circolo di Pace
, Level 60
New Talent: Forms a sanctuary around the target for 8 sec, causing all enemies to be silenced and disarmed within 8 yards.
, Level 30 Brewmaster and Windwalker
ability: Clears you of all root, stun and fear effects and reduces the duration of future such effects by 60% for 6 sec. Nimble Brew can be cast while stunned or feared.
Marchio della Morte
, Level 90
New Talent (replaces Versatility): Mark the target, instantly generating 5 combo points on them. When the target dies, Marked for Death's cooldown is reset.
, Level 60
New Talent: Immediately teleport to a targeted location, leaving a shadow of yourself behind. Upon activating the effect a second time, or after 10 sec, you will return to your shadow's location.
Lancio dello Shuriken
, level 90
Redesigned Talent: A ranged attack that deals 1246 Physical damage to an enemy target. If the enemy is farther than
5.2 PTR Zone Preview: Isle of Giants, Isle of the Thunder King
02/01/2013 alle 16:42
The 5.2 PTR opened up today, and while it's still a work in progress, we have some visual previews of the new zones for you!
Isle of Giants
is a small tropical isle to the north of Kun-Lai Summit that features the new world boss,
, a troll dinosaur.
Isle of the Thunder King
is able to be explored in an incomplete scenario form.
Edit: as of 1/3, these scenarios have been locked, most likely to fix some bugs.
This is the location for the new 5.2 raid, new quest hubs featuring the Kirin Tor Offensive and Sunreaver Onslaught, a new world boss, a Lightning Forge used to craft weapons with distinctive or formerly-removed models, and a Shipyard, Main Courtyard, and Treasure Room.
Isola del Tuono
explored the Scenario version of
Isola del Tuono
. In his walkthrough of the zone, he speculates on what each visually-unique area is used for, based on the 5.2 PTR Patch Notes.

5.2 PTR: Raid and Scenario Preview, No New Dungeons
29/12/2012 alle 11:23
Today's 5.2 feature covers information about upcoming encounters--raid bosses and scenarios! While some bosses have incomplete entries so far and the loot tables aren't known yet, you can still get a sense of what the encounters are like with the Dungeon Journal. We think it's pretty neat that the Dungeon Journal is deliberately vague about
, a heroic-only encounter, by saying he's instead "shrouded in mystery"--brings back a sense of player discovery.
And as there's no new 5-player dungeons planned for the rest of MoP, we've highlighted our 5.2 scenario summaries to give you a taste of upcoming small-group content.
No New Dungeons in 5.2
People who read the
5.2 PTR Patch Note Preview
may have noticed that there was no mention of new 5-player dungeons. Zarhym clarified that this was intentional, as it would disrupt the current progression model.
LFR has taken the place of dungeons for gearing-up mid-expansion. While players enjoyed
Terrazza dei Magisteri
at the end of Burning Crusade, in the current raid context, it's strange for a dungeon's loot to be on par with raid gear. Players were unhappy with how 4.3 dungeon loot was compa
Transmogrification Guides: Troll Armor (Updated for 5.4)

Patch 5.2 introduced
that bring back a ton of old troll designs, made inaccessible when the original versions of
were removed. We immediately thought what great transmog additions they would be for players!
The new version of
had some recolored weapons and armor, but they didn't match the original items. Plus, player favorites like
Arco Lungo degli Amani Antico
never made it into the new version of the instance.
was more extreme--the 5-piece sets from vanilla, often with surprisingly good itemization compared to Tier 1, were never put back in. While they aren't as eye-catching as the
armor, they hold sentimental value for a lot of players. Some distinctive weapons like
Zanna del Senzavolto
never made it back in either.
The majority of this lookalike gear was added in Patch 5.2 as zone drops from
Isola del Tuono
, but later patches have added a few pieces to fill in incomplete sets.

5.2 PTR: Season 13 PvP Armor
27/12/2012 alle 15:30
Last week we posted many 3D models of
Tier 15 PvE armor coming in Patch 5.2
: this week we have most Season 13 PvP sets to share! Since most model names are called "Alliance" or "Horde," it looks like Blizzard may be implementing faction-themed PvP gear. While the Tier 9 PvE sets had different models for the Alliance and Horde, this hasn't been done for PvP since vanilla, before arena seasons were introduced.
Several sets have four color variations, so perhaps the lower ilvl PvP gear will look the same across factions, and the unique Alliance and Horde colors will be reserved for the Elite gear, similar to how
Redini del Destriero da Guerra Malvagio
Corno del Lupo da Guerra Malvagio
are unique faction rewards for battleground dedication.
Shoulders have now been added to some PvP sets! Enjoy.

Hot on the heels of the
new datamined 5.2 patch this evening
, featuring Tier 15 armor models, new boss descriptions, and hundreds of items, comes Blizzard's official Patch 5.2 Patch Note Preview.
Three new factions: Kirin-Tor Offensive led by Jaina Proudmoore and the Sunreaver Onslaught led by Lor'themar Theron. Players can choose to do PvE or PvP quests with these factions. A third faction, the Shado-Pan Assault, has impressive Valor rewards and reputation can only be earned in raids.
Two new world bosses: Nalak, the Storm Lord and Oondasta.
The new raid is the Throne of Thunder, which has 13 bosses, and 4 different segments on Raid Finder.
All world bosses are now Tap to Faction. This new system offers every eligible player of the same faction that engages a boss the chance to earn loot.
The legendary questline continues in 5.2, with the reward being some special helm-related perk.
Elite Battle Pets have been added to the game world--they will spawn alone against an entire team.

It looks like Blizzard is really keeping their promise of the PTR being more rapid. A PTR patch just hit and it's full of new stuff, welcoming 5.2 onto the PTR right before the holidays! Fun stuff includes dinosaur mounts, new Tier 15 armor models, and Darkmoon Faire hats that grant experience boosts.

, is coming! All

The Zandalari brought powerful creatures with them to the Isle of the Thunder King to use as engines of war. Led by the War-God Jalak, the dinomancers of the Zandalari Beast Ward use ancient tribal magics to strengthen the great beasts and command obedience. The horns of Horridon, the fabled mount of Jalak himself, can tear through the stone walls of a keep as a blade cuts silk.

Patch 5.2: Thunder Isle Teaser from Blizzard, PTR in January
21/12/2012 alle 02:11
Blizzard woke us up in the middle of the night to share this sweet teaser pic of Thunder Isle, the new raid dungeon in 5.2. From this picture, we can also learn that the 5.2 PTR is hitting soon, right on the heels of the holidays. Blizzard really seems to be sticking to their promise of delivering new content patches quickly.
Here's their official statement:
Happy Holidays from the World of Warcraft team! Here’s a small present to tide you over until the new year.
We can't tell
much about the raid theme from this picture, besides that it has really awesome Pandaren-themed architecture with some Mogu statues in the courtyard--what do you think the new raid theme could be? Several devs have hinted that they were inspired by Ulduar.
We've seen the Thunder King alluded to in a few places already, such as in Golden Lotus quests like
L'Ascia da Battaglia del Re del Tuono
, legendary quests like
Il Re del Tuono
, and archaeology (
Collezionista: Editti del Re del Tuono
). Known as Emperor Lei Shen, the Thunder King was a powerful mogu leader who defeated all of his rivals with the aid of a mysterious relic, and was resurrected by
at the Isle of Reckoning in Mists.
