Patch 5.2 hotfixes for March 19

Patch 52 Hotfixes for March 19
Some like them hot, and the latest round of hotfixes has just hit the Warcraft official blog page, this time around there's a few changes to bosses that may well relate to the inordinate amount of time it took guilds to take down Dark Animus in the Throne of Thunder World First race, as well as some changes made to PvP weapons to even out the 2/2 upgraded elite conquest gear and this season's gear.

Here are the hotfix highlights:
  • Season 13 Tyrannical weapons had their item levels increased to ilevel 498, up from ilevel 493, to match Season 12 Elite weapons.
  • Season 13 Malevolent Honor gear now gives more Stamina, making them comparable to Season 12 counterparts.
  • Eye of the Storm: Horde teams are now being awarded the proper amount of victory points when holding 3 towers.
  • Dark Animus
    • Dark Animus will now use its abilities at more consistent intervals.
    • Interrupting Jolt now deals less damage on 10/25-player Heroic mode.
    • Explosive Slam now deals significantly less damage on 10-player Heroic mode.
    • Fixed an issue where Matter Swap could sometimes teleport players beneath the world.
Hit the break for the full hotfix post!

Patch 5.2 PTR: Patch notes update for Feb 25

Patch 52 PTR Patch notes update for Feb 25
As we draw closer to the release of patch 5.2, changes continue to be made. Another round of patch notes have just hit the 5.2 PTR. This time around, the list of changes to classes and quests is relatively small. However, there are a ton of updates for professions of all kinds -- and one interesting change to AoE spells and abilities.
  • The area damage cap is now 20 targets instead of 10.
  • Players that have a high fishing skill now have a chance to fish up new pets! The Pet Journal has clues on where these new pets can be found. Happy hunting -- er, fishing!
  • New raid and PvP patterns have been added for tailors. Tailors can find these new patters with the daily Imperial Silk cooldown.
  • Players can now participate in Pet Battle duels while in the Throne of Thunder, just in case you'd rather take a break from certain troll doom and instead focus on fluffy critters.
You can see the full list of patch notes at the official site, but if you'd just like a list of the new changes, follow after the break for a consolidated list.

Patch 5.2 PTR: Patch notes update for Feb 19

Patch 52 PTR Patch  notes update for Feb 19
Blizzard has posted another updated set of patch notes for the 5.2 PTR. This time around, the list of updates is relatively small, but there are still plenty of interesting tidbits to be found. Included are class changes for a few different classes, as well as some updates and additions to the list of features that will be available in patch 5.2.
  • Satchels obtained via the Raid Finder now have a chance to contain additional fun items. This includes Raid Finder versions of Normal and Heroic difficulty zone drops that were previously unobtainable from LFR difficulty.
  • Players of the same faction will get shared credit for Pandaria world bosses -- this includes Sha of Anger and Galleon, as well as the new world bosses in 5.2.
  • Buying the farm has officially been changed to reflect that you will be taking over the farm rather than purchasing it. Players must be exalted with the Tillers and have unlocked all 16 farm plots before this option will be made available.
You can see the full list of patch notes at the official site, but we've made life a little easier and just compiled a list of all of the changes after the break.

Patch 5.2 PTR: Patch notes update for Jan. 30

Patch 52 PTR Patch notes update for Jan 30
Blizzard just posted an updated set of patch notes for the 5.2 PTR. Included in the latest round of updates are the continuation of Wrathion's legendary quest chain, some class changes, a whole mess of Pet Battle changes, and a few interesting tweaks to LFR that might just make that issue of players dropping groups a little less likely to occur.
  • To encourage LFR groups to stick around, each time a Raid Finder group wipes on a boss fight, all players will get a stacking buff that increases health, damage, and healing done by 5%. This stacks up to 10 times.
  • Lorewalker Cho has two new tales to tell -- Dagger in the Dark, and A Little Patience. As of 5.2, both factions will be able to complete both scenarios. No more faction limit!
  • Characters that have attained titles from the Rated Battleground system (Centurion, Knight-Champion, High Warlord, Grand Marshal, etc) will now be able to purchase old PvP items requiring those titles.

Patch 5.2 PTR: Patch notes update for Jan. 16

World of Warcraft Patch 52 PTR patch notes
Blizzard updated the official 5.2 patch notes a few hours ago. Some of the updates are consolidated changes from the last few PTR builds, but many of them are new. You can see the full update at the official WoW community site, but we've compiled all the changes. Check out some of the highlights below.
  • The continuation of the Wrathion questline will unlock a new legendary metagem, Crown of the Heavens.
  • Three new spectral porcupine spirit beasts have appeared across Pandaria as tameable beasts.
  • There is now an option to show absorb effects (such as Power Word: Shield) on player, target, party and raid frames. This feature is currently enabled if you turn on the predictive healing option. Unlike predictive healing, absorb effects will display for enemy targets.
  • The Reputation panel on the character screen will now let players know which reputations they have purchased and used Grand Commendations for.

World of Warcraft Patch 5.2 PTR patch note preview

World of Warcraft Patch 52 PTR patch notes
A preview of the notes for the patch 5.2 PTR has just been released on the official blog. While the PTR may not be open until January, Blizzard certainly isn't wasting any time with getting the information out there and readily available to players. The trend of speedy patches in Mists of Pandaria seems to be continuing as hoped, which should make players very happy, and far less apt to run out of content to do. Highlights from the patch include:
  • The new raid, Throne of Thunder, which includes 12 new raid encounters and an additional 13th foe unlocked upon defeating Emperor Lei Shen in Heroic mode.
  • New daily quest hub: The Isle of the Thunder King -- the Kirin-Tor Offensive and the Sunreaver Onslaught face off to lay claim to Emperor Lei Shen's island stronghold and the treasures contained therein.
  • Two new world bosses, Nalak the Storm Lord and Oondasta
  • An option to purchase Sunsong Ranch to make it a resting point like an inn. Work orders will come in from various factions, and completing the work orders will grant you reputation with the issuing faction.
  • All world bosses are now Tap to Faction. This new system offers every eligible player of the same faction that engages a boss the chance to earn loot.
Read on for the full list of patch notes for Patch 5.2.
