Patch 5.2, The Thunder King, live 5 March 2013
Blizzard has just confirmed that WoW’s 5.2 patch, The Thunder King, will be live tomorrow, 5 March 2013. Here’s an overview of what to expect, courtesy our friends over on Wowhead:
  • A new troll-themed raid tier has been added—Throne of Thunder. Bosses drop ilvl 502 gear on LFR, ilvl 522 gear on Normal, and ilvl 535 gear on Heroic.
  • There is a server-wide War Effort on the Isle of Thunder in which players unlock new content features by completing daily quests.
  • On the new Isle of Giants, players can participate in a variety of dinosaur-themed content, including farming up mounts and pets.
  • Season 13 has begun for arena and rated battlegrounds. There is new faction-specific Tyrannical Gladiator's gear, as well as crafted ilvl 458 gear and Honor ilvl 476 Malevolent gear.
  • The new legendary questline reward for 5.2 is a legendary metagem.
  • Some professions are getting major additions: Blacksmiths have a new way to level up and can make new vanity weapons, while fishermen get a new Fish of the Day daily event.
  • Transmog weapon restrictions have been loosened, and players can collect troll-themed gear in the style of unobtainable drops from old Zul'Gurub and Zul'Aman.
