World of Warcraft: Patch 5.1 bald auf den Public Test Realms

Pünktlich zum Feierabend trudelte ein Blue Post ein. Denn schon bald dürfen wir Patch 5.1 auf dem PTR testen. Dabei sind auf dem PTR nicht sofort alle Features verfügbar, aber wir bekommen eine Vorschau von dem, was wir testen dürfen.

So schreitet der Krieg zwischen Horde und Allianz voran, die Fraktionen landen an der Küste Pandarias. Damit erwarten uns neue Quest-Hubs und Fraktionsbelohnungen. Außerdem bilden sich in Sturmwind und Orgrimmar Untergrundgruppen von Raufbolden, an denen ihr euer PvE-Können testen könnt – die angekündigten Proving Grounds!

Bei den Haustierkämpfen dürfen wir ein überarbeitetes Interface und Möglichkeiten, die Qualitätsstufe eurer Pets zu erhöhen, erwarten.

Auch werden wir die Item-Upgrades per Tapferkeitspunkte testen können, mit denen ihr die Gegenstandsstufe eurer Items anheben könnt.

Zu guter Letzt werden wir erfahren können, wie die Furorion-Questreihe weitergeführt wird.

Mists of Pandaria – Patch 5.1 PTR Coming Soon

While Mists of Pandaria already comes packed full of some of the most diverse and expansive World of Warcraft content to date, we’re staying true to our goal of delivering new content faster. With that in mind, we’re pleased to share that the first major Mists of Pandaria content update, Patch 5.1, is well underway.
In fact, our plan is to release a build of patch 5.1 on the Public Test Realms soon so you can experience it for yourself! Initially, the PTR build won’t include all of the 5.1 patch content, but here’s a glimpse of the major features that are already in the pipeline.

Patch 5.1 Features

Pandaria and the War of Conquest
While members of the Horde and the Alliance have been busy exploring the exotic continent of Pandaria, Garrosh and Varian have been gathering their forces in preparation for the struggle to exert the influence of the Horde and the Alliance over these long-lost lands. Players who have quested through Pandaria will see forces of both factions arrive in force on the shores of the unspoiled continent, bringing the tensions between the Horde and the Alliance into sharp focus. New daily quest hubs and faction reputations will be available to adventurers eager to do their part in the brewing conflict.

Brawler’s Guild
Underground fighting rings have sprung up in Stormwind and Orgrimmar that will give brawlers a chance to earn bragging rights by testing their solo PvE mettle against some of the toughest creatures found in World of Warcraft. The first rule of brawls is you don’t talk about brawls. The second rule…

Pet Battles Improvements
Several UI and other improvements will be added to the Pet Battles system, including a way to upgrade the rarity of pets that you’ve captured.

Item Upgrades
You will be able to spend Valor Points to improve the item level and quality of gear you already own.

The Quest Continues
Wrathion is keenly interested in the conflict exploding between the factions on Pandaria’s southern shore. He’s sure to have additional tasks for players to complete as they continue their quest for Legendary gear.

Keep in mind this is only a taste of what’s to come, and that there’s even more in store. Stay tuned for additional details as we prepare release Patch 5.1 for testing!
