S3: EP3 TWGR - Patch 5.2: Release Date, PvP S12 Ending Soon & Love is in the Air Update!

What's up guy and girl players of WoW. Tarou here bringing you episode 3 of my weekly gaming report. This week we'll take a look at the new additions on the PTR for patch 5.2, the release date for the patch.

In current game PvE news, raiders are still making there way through Terrace of Endless Spring normal and even Heart of Fear but Blizzard's new model of pumping out content continues with Patch 5.2 coming as early as February 26th. A lot of players hit the forums complaining it was too soon for another patch. Bashiok chimed in saying "it's definitely a balancing act between not enough content and too much, and it's not going to be the same player to player to player."

The common rebutle to for the too soon arguement is the player has the choice of which content to do. While that's true, most players feel like they're missing out on something and truely don't enjoy the previous content as they would have if it were the newest content. Some players even get frustrated and quit because they feel like they're so far behind.

To help prepare for this patch, Blizzard has announced they've slashed the prices on the WoW games to $5 for the battlechest, $10 for Cata, and $20 for MoP. The sale ends February 25th at 11:59pm PST.

Also this week the Love is in the Air, Valentine's Day holiday event has begun and will end February 24th. Check your ingame calendar for specific times on your server. This year's only change is the necks that drop from the seasonal boss are now iLvl 480 which is pretty good for any new to 90. Level 89 and above can queue for the boss.

Most players though will be looking to get the 'Big Love Rocket'. An item that is possible to be inside the Heart-Shaped Box that you get daily from killing the seasonal boss.

For PvP news this week, players are pushing their ratings in a last ditch effort to get end of season rewards. Season 12 should be ending within the next few weeks. Good luck everyone.

In Auction House news prices continue to be flat and I have to appoligize for not having my stock up video out yet. Look for it this week along with some other gold making videos this week going into next.

Switching over to Blizzard news, they just had their Q4 conference and earnings call. Some of the highlights were reaffirming Blizzcon being annouced soon, current subscribers have dropped to 9.6 million; mostly lost subs from China, and the likely announcement of Blizzard's newest MMO being announced at this year's Blizzcon.

Well, that's it for this Tarou's Weekly Gaming Report and we're just ramping up so please subscribe, visit, and share this video.

Thanks for watching!
