Speculation of an old world revamp in one form or another has been around quite a while, as dataminers keep finding updated models all over the place. 10.2 is no different, as there are even more old models getting the shiny treatment.
We have siege engines, the boats we use to travel across the world, a lot of Darkmoon Faire stuff, many holiday event assets and more. Here's Leyst going over both the new changes in 10.2, as well as some other recent ones before the patch:
11.0 is still very much a mystery so anything is possible in terms of remaking parts of the old world. It has been a while since Cataclysm, so we might be due! However, it's also possible all this is just part of a regular update path for the game, as individual models will get upgraded over time.
Would you want another old world revamp?
While the top percentiles remain very stable, as the new patch meta has solidified (and is pretty similar to the old one), we do see some movement here in week 3 of 10.1.7, so let's dive in!
Warcraft Logs Points
The below logs are based on POINTS, and not actual damage or healing, meaning they log the timed completion for the specs, with higher keys getting more points, obviously. The time in which the dungeon is completed is also a factor, but a much, much smaller one, as it grants very few points if you do it significantly faster than just any in-time completion. We're also using the Normalized Aggregate Scores numbers, for clarity, meaning the top spec is marked as 100 and then the rest are ranked in relation to that peak point.
95th percentile DPS
Things are getting reeally stable in the top percentiles as we have to reach way down to 12th to see the first change, where Arms (and Feral behind it) took down Windwalker. Down at the bottom we see the top raid spec, as Unholy finds itself in dead-last. It's joined by Devastation once again, while Marksmanship got a reprieve and made it out of the bottom 3, replaced by Assassination.
Mythic+ All Keys 95th Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
We have movement quite a bit earlier here, as Destruction pushes past Balance into 6th, just behind Retribution which is still doing very well. Arcane is also moving up, taking down Fury in 8th, as Enhancement closes out the top 10. Frost Mage is making a big move here, rising 4 spots into 12th, while the bottom 3 copies the top percentiles and Marksmanship moves out.

U.GG DPS Rankings
U.gg's rankings are based on actual DPS taken from Warcraft Logs data, focusing on the top players and span the past two weeks.
Shadow is making some big moves in the DPS rankings, pushing past 4 specs to settle in 4th, just ahead of Destruction and Fury which only rose 1 this week. Outlaw had to make room for all these newcomers, finding itself 3 spots down while Arcane did the opposite, and it has its eye on the Rogue now as well. Beast Mastery also suffered, even more than Outlaw, as it is down in 9th, 4 down from last week. Balance closes out the top 10 1 spot down, as the bottom 3 remains the same.

We're speculating about when Patch 10.2 will release and the most likely release date right now is November 7.
Patch 10.1 release coincided with Turbulent Timeways when the event was available last time. Specifically, Embers of Neltharion launched during Timewalking Week 5 and the Season started one week after.
If the same was bound to happen with 10.2, the patch would come out on October 31 with the fifth week of Timewalking and Season 3 would start on November 7, but that's very unlikely to happen due to BlizzCon which takes place during November 3-4.
Now, people need to travel to and from BlizzCon. Many top raiders will be attending the event and it wouldn't make sense for Blizzard to open raids around BlizzCon. To give everyone including the developers some breathing room, the most likely release date for the patch is November 7 with Season 3 beginning on November 14. That way, Race to World First should finish before Thanksgiving.
When do you think Patch 10.2 will go live?
