MMO-Champion is saying Feb 26th.


I find it hard to believe that the patch will be released four days after a testing phase starts.


Some people have ignored the front page of the WoW site where Bashiok says they're shooting for end of month to release patch.
Good thing for me that I absolutely will remain entirely unaffected.
MMO CHAMP is Blizzard? I had no clue.

The Blizzard post MMOchamp cited.

Of course we don’t tend to give out patch release dates ahead of time, because things can slip, but right now we’re targeting the last week of February.

Or is that not good enough and not proof that Blizzard said it?


It's not. People aren't going to believe it until it's posted in a sticky at the top of these forums with an exact date in the thread accompanied by a message on the log in screen detailing the exact date and finally an ingame mail with a specific date.

I do agree the patch is way too soon. You'd think they'd learn from previous expansions when they've admitted to releasing raid patches too quickly
I think it's too soon as well, but for purely selfish reasons. I haven't levelled this guy up nearly as quickly as I've wanted to, due to time and being a very casual player ATM. I was hoping to get him to 90 and get him geared a bit through LFR at least before 5.2 hits, but sounds like that's not going to happen.

On the plus side, though, they're intentionally setting things up so that you have to get through the 5.0 LFR raids and gear up a bit before you can move on to the 5.2 raid, so it sounds like he'll still be able to see the content, just not when it goes live.

Until i see it downloading (not preloading) or see the announcement on the main wow page, its not "official" enough for me, and others.


You do know that Bashiok's blog is posted on the official page, right?
I think a lot of people we guessing sometime mid march, and a lot of people would agree that would be the ideal time. I've read quite a few posts and topics on this and that seems to be the majority. I'm with them on that as well.

Seriously...I don't think it gets much more official than that.

Theres a first page?

The first post.
Yup, because Blizzard has never pushed back a release date, right?

I'd be fine with an end of February or early March release. Might not be 16/16 by then, but that's fine.

Isn't that testing phase for LFR? LFR isn't being released the first week of the patch anyway, so I doubt that would have any effect on the release date.

Seriously, Blizzard, don't you know you're supposed to please everyone all the time?


I'm sure if they offered Waffles and Toast all the problems would dissipate.

Cake and pie.

Then the world would live in harmony.
