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.

na if patch is already preloading than release will be next maintaince, also every release happened shortly after ptr version got flagged as release

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.

      It's time for more boss tests in Ny'alotha, the Waking City, as Wrathion, Maut, Skitra and Ra-den all get some action on heroic difficulty this Thursday and Friday.
      Raid Testing (source)
      On Thursday, October 17th and Friday, October 18th, we will be continuing our raid tests in Ny’alotha, the Waking City.
      Thursday, October 17th
      Wrathion, the Black Emperor - Heroic Ny’alotha, the Waking City
      13:00 PDT (16:00 EDT, 22:00 CEST)
      Maut - Heroic Ny’alotha, the Waking City
      14:00 PDT (17:00 EDT, 23:00 CEST)
      Friday, October 18th
      The Prophet Skitra - Heroic Ny’alotha, the Waking City
      13:00 PDT (16:00 EDT, 22:00 CEST)
      Ra-den the Despoiled - Heroic Ny’alotha, the Waking City
      14:00 PDT (17:00 EDT, 23:00 CEST)
      As always, this testing schedule is very fluid and subject to the realities of a test environment. We might have to change the time of a testing session, change the bosses being tested, or cancel a test entirely, due to bugs, server hardware issues, etc. Keep an eye on this forum for the latest information, and thank you in advance for testing and providing feedback.
      Q: How do I get into the raid zone?
      A: In Zuldazar, Boralus, Dalaran, Orgrimmar, or Stormwind, you may speak to Nexus-Lord Donjon Rade III in order to teleport into the raid zone while it is open for testing. (The option to teleport into a zone will not be available when the zone is not open for testing.)
      Q: What character should I use to test the raid?
      A: Whichever you prefer. We will be scaling players’ effective level to 120 for raid testing, and their item level to an appropriate threshold for the encounter(s) being tested.
      Q: How long does testing last?
      A: The primary purpose of testing is to give us the information we need to balance the encounters, evaluate how mechanics are playing out in practice, and identify bugs. Once we’re satisfied that we’ve received that information for a given boss, we’ll be shutting down testing. Usually this takes anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours, but there are no guarantees.

      Today, we're looking at another mount coming in Patch 8.3 called N'Zoth Serpent which drops from Adherent of the Abyss found in Stormsong Valley.
      N'Zoth Serpent (Dark)
      The mount name is just a placeholder and will be renamed in a future 8.3 build.

      Allied Races and the Pandaren will be finally able to become Death Knights in the near future, as Blizzard added creature textures together with encrypted sound files for Bolvar Fordragon and Darion Mograine in 8.3 Build 32151.
      It seems Bolvar is going to forge a new line of Death Knights in Patch 8.3. Death Knight textures for all Allied Races (Including Lightforged Draenei) have been added to the game along with encrypted sound files for Bolvar Fordragon and Highlord Darion Mograine, who's likely going to narrate the new Death Knight intro. There's also an encrypted map of an area, which is likely the one of Icecrown Citadel.

      Datamined Pandaren Male Death Knight Texture
      It seems there's going to be a brand new Death Knight intro, but at this time, we don't know if the Allied Races are going to start at level 20 or 55 and how that's going to affect Heritage Armor acquisition.
