I voted Dec. 11. My opinion is that the Patch will serve to keep players busy until the next tier of content, and that it should not be released too early, so that the average guild has the time to finish Terrace of Endless Spring in Normal mode. That said, I believe it should be released before Christmas because cool things like the Brawler's Guild are things that many players will dedicate time to during their end of the year vacation. So, Dec. 11!

Damien...come on. Christmas falls on Tuesday! This will be Blizzard's way of saying "Merry Christmas. Here, we fixed all the crap we shouldn't have had messed up in the first place!"

I think it will be pushed back, even if its finished I doubt they will want too much new stuff around Christmas! Theyve the excuse that people still have plenty to do - even if its just level another alt - with it being the first patch of the expac. I reckon after the holidays.

I voted for December 11. I think Blizzard will want to get it out early enough before the holidays to have time to fix the bugs that arise, so that they don't need to work through Christmas. I find a Christmas day release highly unlikely. They could push it back until January, but I'd be disappointed if they did that. It would really take the wind out of their whole "deliver content faster" mentality. My guess is that by mid-late December, most normal mode raiding guilds will be accessing Terrace of Endless Spring (which is short and, as far as I can tell, easier than the other two raids - on normal mode at least), so it'll be a nice way for Blizzard to ensure that there isn't any kind of gap in the content that players can do. Also keep in mind that it will take some time to get into the Brawler's Guild for the masses, so if they just put it out in late January or something, there many be many players who will feel they have nothing to do while waiting for Brawler's Guild access. Also I think Patch 5.2 (new raiding tier) in early March. The raid is probably already well under way, and I can only hope it's not a small raid.

My guess is the 18th of December. Still an early Christmas gift for the gamers but time to work out a few more bugs before its release.

I would say the 11th of December. The latest PTR patch has already been marked for release, so it can't take too long.
