Mists of Pandaria Launch Date is September 25

War is coming. We’ve taken down the Lich King, we’ve torched Deathwing. Now it’s time to refocus our attention on…each other. Yes, it’s time for old-fashioned, Horde vs Alliance, all-out war! Pack your rucksack with a supply of cheap WoW gold and take your place behind King Varian Wrynn or Warchief Garrosh Hellscream.

Mists of Pandaria launches on September 25 and promises to bring the focus back on the war between the Alliance and the Horde. Whichever side you fight for, whichever ideals you live for, whichever battle strategy you’d die for, you’ll be better served armed to the teeth with the most desirable gear cheap WoW gold can buy.

To prepare for the expansion, PTR Patch 5.0.4 has been released. (Yes, Captain Obvious, on the PTR!) Blizz is prepping for the release, and so should you, with heaps of cheap WoW gold! Get the finest explorer’s gear as you set off for the Wandering Isle. Buy WoW gold and brace yourself for awesome new raids and dungeons.

Following are PTR Patch Notes 5.0.4. in its entirety:

(Read first, buy WoW gold, then we’ll discuss what it all means next time.)


Account-wide Achievements, pets, and mounts

In Patch 5.0.4 and beyond, the majority of your character’s Achievements, pets, and mounts will be shared with your other characters.

World Event: Attack on Theramore Isle

Warchief Garrosh, obsessed with assuring the Horde’s supremacy over Kalimdor, launches an all-out attack against Jaina’s island home of Theramore. Though valiant Alliance defenders rush to repel the sudden onslaught, they’ll soon find themselves unprepared for the terrible scope of Garrosh’s true plans…

In the Public Test Realm, we will be testing this event at specified intervals. Keep an eye on our PTR Feedback forum for more details as they become available.
