Patch 5.2 goodies and gadgets

That sounded like a catchy header no?

Patch 5.2 is on the PTR, and it will bring us lots of new things.

Lets see:

New dailies

The majority of datamined quests cover daily quests associated with two new factions, the Kirin-Tor Offensive and the Sunreaver Onslaught. Earning reputation with these new factions offers heroes the opportunity to receive new quests and reputation rewards, including powerful items and an intimidating new mount.”

So okay, again a new faction and tadaa, a reputation grind with gear locked away and a pretty new mount to go for. I guess this really is the new route of Blizzard, dailies for content. Lets hope they will at least be of the same level as the Operation Shieldwall quests, I’m still slowly working on these because they are bearable.

New dailies quest hub

As the heroes conquer the Isle, they will unlock the powerful Lightning Forge, which will allow Blacksmiths to forge mighty raid-worthy items, as well as classic weapons from the past.

Sounds interesting, only the Blacksmiths-only part sucks.

New Raid, Scenarios & World Bosses

The new raid could be great, at least it looks promising. 12 Bosses in total (And 1 extra on Heroic mode).

Blizzard is returning to the old raid model, in which raids are not made obsolete when new gear (raids) are implemented. Meaning you will have to go through all the previous raids (relative) to get that ilvl up and running.

The Raid Finder version of the Throne of Thunder will be divided into 4 different wings.

Legendary quests continues

The search for information will take players into the depths of the Thunder King’s Palace, and pit them against trials of perseverance and skill. Along the way, they’ll unlock the secrets to a new headgear enchantment, the Crown of the Heavens.

Sunsong Ranch

Players that have grown attached to working the land at Sunsong Ranch can now purchase the land from Farmer Yoon. Once the farm is owned by a player, it becomes a rest point like an Inn, where the player can bind and instantly log out. Work orders will pour into the farm from factions across Pandaria, and completing a work order will earn a reputation boost with the issuing faction.

This is pretty awesome. And an incredible way to grind reputation. Of course if the ‘work orders’ actually are worth it.

New Elite Champion like mobs to kill

Zandalari forces have begun scouting the shores of Pandaria, searching for the perfect invasion point.  The Zandalari can be found in Krasarang Wilds, Dread Wastes, Townlong Steppes, Jade Forest, and Kun-Lai Summit.  Zandalari Scouts can be handled by 1 or 2 players, while elite Zandalari Warbringers will likely require a full party of 5 heroes. Defeat Warbringers to gain special drops, including crafting materials, reputation gains, an achievement, and even the chance to get one of three new rare mounts!
