Patch 7.3.2 Background Download Now Available

Recommended Posts

Fr7nbYs.jpg

The upcoming Patch 7.3.2 is now available for background download in the Blizzard Battle.net app.

Update: Patch 7.3.2 is now live.

Patch 7.3.2 Release Date Speculation

So far, each Legion patch has been released 77 days apart. If Blizzard keeps to that schedule, Patch 7.3.2 would go live on November 14, 2017 in Americas or November 15, 2017 in Europe.

Antorus the Burning Throne

If the patch goes live as expected, Antorus the Burning Throne raid would open on the same day in Normal / Heroic difficulty with LFR's first wing & Mythic difficulty available one week later (November 21).

The background download has an estimated size of ~850 MB.

But patch download is very early if November 17th. tbh i think it might be sooner 

Might be. On the other hand, I don't think they would release a patch just before BlizzCon. Antorus is currently tested until Oct 26. The earliest possible release date could very well be Nov 7, but let's not jump the gun.

I mean, 7.1.5 Background download was available 12/22/2016, and was released on 1/10/2017.  7.2 Background download was available 3/14/17 and was released 3/28/17.

I don't see them releasing 7.3.2 next week ( I could be wrong) but I also don't see them releasing it right before Blizzcon.  I could see them releasing it after Blizzcon for two reasons.  Hype for the next expansion will motivate people to pick the game up again, and the second reason being that I don't see Blizzard allowing the World First race taking focus away from Blizzcon.  "Guys... I can't go to Blizzcon this year."  "Why not???!!??!?"  "I have to get world first because they released Antorus before Blizzcon.."

If Blizzard played it smart imho, then they would release Antorus after Blizzcon so they can hype the next expansion and the WF race for Antorus.

Patch will be live next week. History always has shown that when it appears on background DL... the patch goes live within 2 weeks of that moment, most likely next week as the week after is probably too close to blizzcon and they can't have any distractions that week.

Antorus will either open up right after blizzcon, or after thanksgiving.

Except it hasn't, even shown in the example above you.

I think the patch will be after Blizzcon since Blizzard don't want to handle any potential issues with the patch while a lot of employees are at the convention.

Since WotLK it has always been a 1-2 cycle between RC and live launch.

The example you listed had double holidays in between, quite logical it was quite longer. If there was no Christmas and NY(E) in between that timeline the patch would have gone out the 3rd of January.

There is nothing new this patch, 90% of the patch value is already in the game since 7.3 and the other 10% the majority of that is gated behind Antorus release, which isn't going to be open until after blizzcon anyway. No reason to not push out a minor hotfix patch, because that's what it really is after all.

Definitely. Also, it would be a blow to the few players that are still participating in world first races and such, since many of them (especially from Method's side) will be attending Blizzcon etc.

Yeah, given the sentence above, it seems like that's most likely.

      Yesterday, we previewed Great Vault, the new weekly chest of Shadowlands, but many players were confused about how the rewards from Mythic Dungeons will be calculated, so here's are some clarifications.
      To unlock more loot choices in the Great Vault, you must complete the following objectives related to Mythic Dungeons:
      Slot #1: Complete 1 Mythic Dungeon Slot #2: Complete 5 Mythic Dungeons Slot #3: Complete 15 Mythic Dungeons If you complete 15 Mythic Dungeons in a week, you will be able to choose from up to 3 items.
      Your reward is based on the lowest level of your top 1 (Slot #1), 5 (Slot #2), and 15 (Slot #3) runs. Redditor zawyer90 posted an image and explained how the system works, so helping your friend with a Mythic +5 run will not affect your weekly item choices.

      We have a bunch of retail and Classic hotfixes today, leaning heavily on the Classic side, with the Ectoplasmic Distiller fix and epic Draconic pages.
      July 31 (source)
      tems and Rewards
      Corrupted Items Reverted the recent change made on the interaction between Fist of Justice and Ineffable Truth for Holy and Protection Paladins. WoW Classic
      The Ectoplasmic Distiller quest item no longer generates threat. Developers’ note: Ordinarily we err on the side of authenticity when it comes to clever use of mechanics in Classic, even if we believe the original development team would have made a change given the same information we now have. The Ectoplasmic Distiller presents a rare exception mainly due to its severity: this new discovery of an unintended mechanic would completely trivialize most threat gameplay in raids for the remainder of Classic if left unchecked, including upcoming bosses in Ahn’Qiraj and Naxxramas. The pages for the quest “Draconic for Dummies” are now Epic quality. Developers’ note: We’re changing the item quality on "Draconic for Dummies" quest pages to Epic (purple) so that they'll be easier to distribute to the correct person in raids using Group Loot or Master Looter.

      Male Night Elves have gained a new Blindfold customization option category in the latest Shadowlands Beta build.
      Blindfolds will no longer be exclusive to select Face options in Shadowlands, as Male Night Elves received Blindfolds as a separate customization option. Currently, there is only one single Blindfold available for the race, as displayed below.

      Don't forget to check out the new Night Elf Male and Night Elf Female customization options that are coming in Shadowlands!
