Please be aware that with the release of the pre-expansion 5.0.4 patch on Tuesday, August 28, all raid lockouts will be reset. This means that you will not be able to extend a raid lockout beyond the week before the patch release.


Dear Kaivax,

Could you please confirm the 1% Heroic Madness mount drop rate change for this up coming patch?


no idea what you're talking about. drops 100% on 25m. we get 2 sometimes 3 every week.

Question, is there going to be a change to the heroic deathwing mount and heroic ragnoras mount at these times?

And where are the PTR patch notes so we can prepare?

Mind editing the original post to include the link?

Will the new minimum system requirements also go in effect with 5.0.4? Or will that be when MoP launchs?

I really do not understand why you all are so excited. The expansion still doesn't go live until 9/25. It's a patch to get ready. So what.

[quote="63068556241"]And like I said, no one cares if you have a mount from last expansion anyway because the ones that care about their ego are too busy working on current content.


Say that to tons of people doing heroic Lich King.

Also, speak for yourself. I care for rewards and things that took me time/gold to get.

What's this? Blizzard announcing a patch date ahead of time?

Expansion must be getting close!

Drumroll, please...

Not sure about that. I do find it funny they are doing it the same day a new AAA title is launching though. I do believe this is the first time they have done this. At least with a major patch. Yes, I'm putting on my tinfoil hat. Not that they are worried about GW2 but that they are hoping less people are playing till they get some bugs squashed. The patch is not ready and looking at beta forums (not actually in beta) MOP is far from ready for live.

Day before my birthday - thanks for the present blizzard!! Now what would be awesome is if the mounts I've been farming for drop too hehe

I think the mounts should stay at 100%. Having a drop rate of 1% is just too little motivation to do an instance.

It's rolls out the new talent trees, specs and re-tooled spells for everyone, not just those who will upgrade to MoP. Which means unless you have been part of the beta test, then you are in for a nice/not-so-nice change/lesson on the use of your rotations, CDs, and available spells.


Well then....that sounds like crap. Isn't the point of an expansion to be fully live on that date. It should be like other MMO's that I've played where you download the file in the background and they activate on the live date. Frikkin nice. Is there anywhere out there besides the kvetch threads I've read from time to time explaining how it will change? Did Blizz post an official site with "these are the changes that happening to your class"?

Not sure why people are so excited over this, sounds like I'll log in once to do the theramore event on a couple characters. All this gives me is the ability to afk on my rare mounts on any character : /
