Patch 7.2 Background Download Available

Recommended Posts

Patch 7.2 is now available in the Battle.net app as background download. When can we expect it go live?

Patch 7.2 Release Date

  • This week, Blizzard added the quest "An Urgent Warning" to Class Order Halls that hints at 7.2 and the Broken Shore
  • Season 3 items are tied to Patch 7.2
  • TL;DR
    • Patch 7.1.5 does not contain Season 3 items so the latest date for 7.2 to go live is the day when Season 3 starts.
  • Patch 7.2 PTR
    • Having played so much on PTR, I'd say the patch is pretty close to release and received final updates.

Blizzard tweeted that there were no plans to start Season 3 this or next week, so the week of March 28 seems to be the date to look out for.

I really hope soon (your suggested 28th would be fine). I realize Tomb isn't going to be open at launch but I'm sorta bored right now. The suramar quest got wrapped up pre nighthold launch and even though nighthold was a fine raid, I have no complaints, its luster has run off for me already. So some new stuff to do would be awesome, plus the faction mounts finally being implemented is exciting, especially the stormdrake. I am horribad at pvp, I que for a bg and it just mercy kills us immediately, its like "nope you got ardvark on your team, we gonna save you 15 minutes and end this now" so I have no hope of getting the pvp stormdrake ones.

Honestly, I'm a little disappointed the new patch will be rolling out already.  I mean, I came back to WoW for the legion expansion and granted I came back a little late, I feel like I have been trying to play catch up since December.  I just recently switched from playing my fury warrior to playing enhancement shaman as my main, and I really want to be fully caught up when the new patch hits.

I hate when your playing catch up and all the 1-2 month old content is all dried up.  It loses a lot of the fun when everyone in the group is way over geared and the content isnt challenging anymore.  Of course I understand that some people aren't playing catchup and have been caught up throughout the expansion, but I feel there is a large majority of casual players who never really get to experience the new content firsthand because they cannot keep up with the pace of the content.

...and a huge number of players who have been playing the entire expansion are feeling the content to be just about right, in comparison to Warlods, where there was virtually no new content and the only people who that appeased were the ones who rarely played.

your own fault when you dont play and then try to catch up.. people who play since legion launch are starving for new content

I knew I would get responses like this, my point was that no matter what, some people will get left behind (who play too little) and some people will get bored (who play too much), and some people will play the perfect amount and be happy with the pace.  

Im not complaining or telling Blizz to speed up or slow down, just commenting on my perspective.  And how many people are really "starving for new content"?  Isn't there a huge portion of players that havent even completed Mythic NH?  If you haven't completed the hardest raid, how could you be starving for new content?  

WoW has released so much great content over the years, it just sucks that as soon as new content is released the old content loses its luster.  I started playing WoW during vanilla and got to raid MC, Onyxia's Lair, AQ40, etc. but I was on and off for several years.  For example I missed most of BC, played some WotK, played some MoP, missed all of WoD, and thats on me for not playing the game continuously for 12 years... but how many people have really played through every expansion?

I guess I'm just lamenting on the fact that I missed alot of great content and now I'll never really get to experience it the way it was meant to be enjoyed.  Now that I am into Legion and loving it, I am really trying to catch up and experience new content as it arrives, but I am having a little trouble catching up while maintaining regular life activities.  #nerdproblems

Who else is ready for flying!? So over the achievement/rep grinding (which are all things all of us would do WITH flying anyways!) and waiting months after an expansion, like what has been introduced with the last two expansions....What happened to just letting us buy it after hitting max level?

I'm still not bored with the current patch and content. But if 7.2 is coming in the very near future I'll gladly have Blizzard serve me an encore. For me Legion has been the best expansion of Blizzard.

If we follow your mind, you shouldnt give ANY feedback on pvp as well, if you're not 2.8k+.

 

No sir, you're wrong, lots of players already finished heroic, and dont give a real shit for mythic raiding, mostly because they have no reason to spend all of their money on food, repairs, prepots etc.

 

For me, my 'patch content' was finished when i completed my suramar questline and finished the entire nighthold.

More content is always good, but I can't help but wonder if they are releasing the raids too soon again. Many guilds are still progressing through Nighthold, and that will likely be abandoned once Tomb of Sargeras becomes available. It's a bit of a Catch-22, as too little content makes players leave because they are bored, and too much can make them feel overwhelmed.

This is more a matter of pacing than anything else. Blizzard tends to release raids too quickly, followed by very long content droughts as they prepare the next expansion. I would rather see them spaced out a bit better, or a small filler raid like Ruby Sanctum added in the interval between expansions so we always have something to do, rather than grinding out the same content a dozen times on alts.

The catch up here isn't nearly as bad as WOD, when you had so much gated behind cooldowns. The difficulty is being raised for dungeons and dungeons are being added to the group finder so that content will become relevant again for awhile. Grinding AP and order hall resources is the only catch up stuff you have to worry about.

      We have some interesting statistics to take a look at today, as redditor Quasiwave created an infographic looking at population data for both factions, the most popular races and classes, as well as a (somewhat less relevant/accurate) "most commonly paired race/class combos" diagonal. There's not that much shocking info in there, with Blood Elves being staggeringly popular for the Horde and Night Elves and Humans for the Alliance, but it's interesting to see all the stats anyway.

      Now, the numbers can never be exact (or even close to it), as Blizzard doesn't share that kind of data anymore, but Quasiwave took the next best thing, as the data was taken from Warcraft Realms and features 300,000 characters (not unique players).

      Here's some more info on the methods used by the author himself and you can check out the reddit thread for even more statistics debate on the methods used, whether it's a realistic representation, and just how accurate or not those diagonal boxes are.

      Chromie is casually chilling on her hourglass near embassies in Stormwind and Orgrimmar, allowing players to pick an expansion/timeline they would like for leveling from 10 to 50 before heading to Shadowlands.
      New players that have not played through Battle for Azeroth and reached level 120 yet with at least one character won't be eligible for this option and must play Battle for Azeroth by default when Shadowlands goes live.
      Any subsequent characters you create will be able to pick from the following timelines for leveling:
      Kalimdor & Eastern Kingdoms
      Deathwing's emergence from Deepholm altered Azeroth's landscape forever and weakened the veil between this world and the elemental planes. Deathwing won't know what hit him!

      Outland
      The Dark Portal has once again opened, and the demons of the Burning Legion are advancing on Azeroth! Make sure their plans have a rather... Azerothian-sized setback!

      Northrend
      The tragic fall of Arthas Menethil and his ascension to the frozen throne as the Lich King is a moment in history that has permanently left a lingering scar across all Azeroth. Stopping the Lich King would really put the Scourge's plan on ice.

      Pandaria
      An ancient and mysterious land shrouded in fog for over ten thousand years appeared due to the events of the Cataclysm, and its people could really use the help of an adventurer like you. Going back to Pandaria is a great way to see that life is worth savoring!

      Draenor
      The orcish clans had a very unfortunate fate in our timeline, but the meddling of Garrosh Hellscream brought forth a force that threatened the very existence of all life on Azeroth--the Iron Horde. Travel back through time and meet the orcish clans and the draenei for the first time... again!

      Broken Isles
      The Burning Legion sought to conquer Azeroth and enslave its world soul and now that the Tomb of Sargeras has been reopened, they advance on our world. History will remember that you stood between the Legion and annihilation!

      You can return and talk to Chromie to select a different timeline whenever you feel like it.
      There is also a whirly screen visual and clock ticking sound when you select a timeline.


      Chromie also has some cool replies to go with your expansion choice:
      Vanilla/Cataclysm: "Who would have thought someone named Deathwing would bring about so much destruction?" Outland: "You look quite prepared!" Northrend: "Do not exercise restraint when showing your great power to the Scourge." Pandaria: "Whatever you do, do not get between a Pandaren and their brew. It'll be unbearably painful if you do!" Draenor: "If a scary orc offers you something to drink, you probably want to say no." Broken Isles: "If you find a powerful weapon, just make sure it isn't corrupted by the Burning Legion or Old Gods, okay?" Note that timeline icons are currently messed up on Alpha.
      Chromie Time allows you to select an expansion/timeline for leveling in Shadowlands.
