2013-03-02 в 14:37
In the early Patch 5.2 beta, we covered new rare elites around Pandaria that dropped dinosaur mounts like
Поводья сланцевого доисторического дикорога
! Now that Patch 5.2 is imminent and we've tested out all phases of the Isle of Thunder, we're pleased to report that there are even more rare spawns and elites coming in 5.2! The Isle of Thunder has many rare spawns needed for
Защитники Лэй Шэня

Blizzard updated their 5.2 PTR Patch Notes this evening. Of particular interest:
The area damage cap has been raised to 20 targets, up from 10.
Avenging Wrath now has a cooldown of 2 minutes for Retribution Paladins (was 3 minutes).

5.2 PTR: New Achievements Preview
2013-02-25 в 11:41
Patch 5.2 has over 100 new achievements, covering raiding, questing, PvP, and more! Several of these new achievements even have mounts or titles associated with them.
We've provided an overview of all the new achievements, broken down by topic. Here's a taste of what to expect:
Throne of Thunder meta-drake achievements, for
Поводья бронированного небесного крикуна
, and achievements for killing various bosses.
Raid-related Feats of Strength, such as
Герой своего времени: Великая императрица Шек'зир
Completing various achievements around the phased questing zone
achievements for the Mantid solves.
Several PvP achievements including
for a new battleground title.

5.2 Transmog Weapon Changes, Gallery of Main Hand Weapons Changing to One-Hand
2013-02-23 в 09:58
Many huge changes are coming to Transmogrification in 5.2! Besides the addition of
troll-themed greens resembling unobtainable gear from original Zul'Gurub and Zul'Aman
, there are a number of weapon changes.
Transmog restrictions have been loosened on several weapon types:
Two-handed axes, maces, and swords can be Transmogrified to each other.
One-handed axes, maces, and swords can be Transmogrified to each other.
Staves and polearms can be transmogrified to each other.
Class restrictions still apply though--you must be able to equip an item in order to use it for transmog.
In addition, many weapons that were Main Hand only are now classified as One-Hand. Previously, Main Hand weapons could not be transmogged onto One Hand weapons. This frees up even more flexibility, as a sword formerly classified as Main Hand only, such as
Runesword of the Red
, can now not only be transmogged onto any other One Hand sword, but also onto any mace or axe (if your character can equip them normally) in 5.2!
5.2 PTR: Troves of the Thunder King and Isle of Thunder Scenarios
2013-02-22 в 11:55
Several single-player scenarios coming in 5.2 were recently open for testing. This includes some scenarios tied to unlocking new phases of the Isle of Thunder War Effort, but more importantly, a new scenario that lets you make hundreds of gold for 5 minutes work!
Troves of the Thunder King
Troves of the Treasure King
is a new single-player scenario in which players try to grab as much loot as they can from treasure chests before their 5 minutes are up. This is made harder by the presence of numerous challenging traps in the zone designed to attack and slow you down. In this video, Lore from
goes over the basics of what to expect.
To begin the scenario, you will need to give Taoshi a

, which can be found from
Сокровища Властелина Грома
scattered around the
or looted from killing some rares.
The most common type of chest is
