Will 5.1 have new raid content?
Plus this: ( http://pc.gamespy.com/pc/world-of-warcraft-mists-of-pandaria/1226130p1.html )
Kosak also insists that content updates will come out more frequently than they have of late. "I can tell you that right now we're working on patch 5.1 and patch 5.2 at the same time downstairs," Kosak said. "We're aiming for patch 5.1 to release shortly after the game is out. I don't want to give an exact date, because we might shoot ourselves in the foot, but we're aiming for it to be very soon."Splitting development between two patches sort of implies they have different types of content focus, and 5.1 shortly after release would be way too soon for new raid content considering we have 16 raid bosses to take down.

You have to go search around for it, there are like 3.5 million interviews and posts over the last few days I cant remember where I saw this.
09/20/2012 11:28 AMPosted by KaramokGC mentioned that there 'might' be some mechanics added to bosses that when done in a certain way they could open up new loot drops. It was from the Crendor interview.
The only thing I remember them mentioning specifically is getting "Elite" level gear for killing the council bosses in a certain order. Like the bug trio in AQ.
09/20/2012 10:48 AMPosted by MelenkorI highly doubt it. Way back when MoP was first announced they said they wanted to do more minor content patches between raid tier patches, and I think 5.1 is one of those.
Somewhere they "hinted" toward an Ulduar-like raid in a post....I just honestly can't remember where it was lol. For 5.1 obviously.
Looks like Sarosha beat me to it.

Probably just enough "hint" to sell MoP copies, along with the Maw of Madness and The dance studio.

First time anyone has ever said that.
Im very very interested to see where blizzard is going to go with raiding as a whole, ive been watching the boards.
They aren't dumb enough to not realize that they completely underwhelmed most of the player base for the last year of the expansion and empty promises don't mean much anymore.

I WILL GIVE YOU HALF OF MY ORGANS FOR THIS. TAKE MY LEGS, I WON'T NEED THEM. TAKE IT ALL. MY LOVE, MY MONEY, AND MOST OF MY BODY.
I personally am hoping to see a raid where Alliance gets to fight the Horde on the beaches, then in a keep, and then in a naval battle.
And the Horde gets the same raid, with exactly the same mechanics but just different models.
