Those of you holding fast to your martial arts ursines in World of Warcraft
are probably quite geeked about the upcoming patch 5.2
. The second major post-Mists of Pandaria
update for the game includes a new quest hub, raid, world bosses, and a farm that you can buy and make your very own.
Our sister site WoW Insider took a closer look at 5.2
, which is currently on the public test realm. The focus of the article was the Isle of the Thunder King questing zone, which involves a struggle between the Sunreaver Onslaught and Kirin Tor Offensive factions.
The area has plenty of cool quest elements; it allows players to transform into the lizardy Sauroks, to be a counselor to golems, and use a ritual stone that summons group bosses. The article notes that players will see the return of a couple of familiar faces, such as the Image of Archmage Vargoth.
