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.

But blizzard said it wasn't a full patch, that's why it's named 7.3.2 (and not .5), so they may not respect the schedule for patches.

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.

So patch next week and raid after blizzcon 

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

      Two Sides to Every Tale is a new achievement that rewards two interesting mounts in Patch 8.1.5. Alliance players will unlock a Wolf mount, whereas the Horde can get a Horse mount. You can earn them by completing the Tides of Vengeance War Campaign and the A Nation United / Zandalar Forever! achievements on both factions.
      Check out our Patch 8.1.5 for the latest World of Warcraft news.

      "Stolen from the Arathi Basin stables, this fire-hearted charger now steeds for the Horde."

      Ironclad Frostclaw
      "Captured in the snows of Alterac Valley, this bloodthirsty hunter now roars for the Alliance."
