Patch 5.2 Release Date

Posted: by Frostheim


Note: you can see a full updated list of all 5.2 hunter changes here.

Just a heads up that we have an approximate release date for patch 5.2: it is likely to land in about two weeks on Feb 26th, according to Bashiok. This was a topic of speculation on the podcast last weekend, and of course just after our guessing we get an official(ish) date.

As is always the case with WoW release dates, the patch 5.2 date is not set in stone. Bashiok specifically said that, as always, things can happen to slip that up. However, it is pretty safe to say that patch 5.2 will not land before then, and is very likely to be on Feb 26th.

So now you have a timetable for all your 5.2 prep work!

    Along with this good news there is some bad. Zumio, renowned EU hunter, and one of the best 1v1 players in the game, has quit playing WoW.

      I would assume the 26th to be a very good estimate. I just finished the 22 gb download of a patch last night. This download has been going on for several days as I have the system set to do the download when the game is loaded but I am not connected to the server.

      Sad to hear about Zumio :(

    This begs the question: what IS our 5.2 prepwork?

    • Arth says:

      Upgrade your items, for one. Item upgrading is going away in 5.2, so now’s your last chance. Especially with valor turning to justice points, it’s time to empty the coffers.

      But outside of that, yeah, not much.

      • Wotfan2 says:

        Do not forget to save all of your leeser charms. They will be for use in the new raids as different rune type instead of elder charms.

        not anymore. VP wont be turned into JP and they stated that we’re going to have enought time to stack our VP to 3000 previous the 5.2 launch.

      • DTC says:

        The Elder Charms are only going to be good for the current Raids. Once the new Raid comes out they will have different charms to use

    Unless they fix growl I am not interested

    • Kheldul says:

      Growl is fine. The Glyph of Endless Wrath causes threat to drop. Don’t take that glyph except for pvp’ng.

      • Ril says:

        growl is not fine. it bugs in older instances.

      • Flint says:

        Growl is not fine. It does not taunt in any Instance or Raid older that the current raids. Blizzard has acknowledged this, but gave no timeline into it’s fix.

    Latest blue post seems to suggest we are more that 2 weeks away from patch 5.2 release.
