World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria
is chugging along quite nicely
, and while there are players content in the current journey to the new endgame, there are always those asking, "What's next?" For the latter crowd, Blizzard
has announced that the first major post-expansion content update
is heading to the test server soon.
Patch 5.1 is slated to advance the storyline, add quest hubs and factions, introduce underground fighting rings in capital cities, improve the pet battle system, and allow players to upgrade gear with valor points.
Blizzard says that the progress toward the patch's deployment is a sign that it is taking its commitment to faster content delivery seriously.
