Today when I logged in to WoW, I noticed that my launcher was "downloading date for upcoming patch". Has anyone else had this yet and can anyone remember at what point these messages usually appear (weeks before, month before, random etc.)?

It usually starts downloading data for an upcoming patch about 3 weeks before the patch goes live. In any case, data available or not, the patch is definitely getting closer. :D

Figures. They wouldn't introduce any new pets in a patch that's just for lore.

Least in 5.1 you had a daily hub and another rep grind. This patch is just a "build up" patch.

It's totally possible that the patch is getting close and that we just won't get any new shiny pets this time. :-) It's not a patch just for hunters, after all, getting new pets is just a rare gift that we should appreciate, not something we should expect and demand!

Personally, I'll be really excited, new pets or not. I want the lore. Pets? Those are great, but we've been absolutely *showered* with love recently. I think one patch without pets is reasonable.

Edit- even more so, we got 30 more stable slots! That's more pets, in a way. It's certainly spoiling us. xD

These two sentences right here. I can't speak for anyone else, but I am having enough trouble keeping all my returning babies straight. If I had to worry about entirely new pets too....well....my head would explode. -_-

You hit up some really good points. I mean do they have to add new pets every patch? I don't think a patch with out any new extra stuff for a class wont hurt anyone at all. They can't give one class new things all the time. :3

I totally agree...prettyful new shinnies are always loved but we should really stop demanding and expecting them IMO. Im just so excited about the new stable slots and all the new shinnies from last patch :)

I agree as well. We've been spoiled rotten with new pets. I'm content without having any for this patch. :3

Getting a sense that they are slowing down regarding launching this patch. Which might mean 5.4 might be coming much later in the year. They might also be looking at progression.

There was also a blue post indicating that there would be a warning about the patch coming, and we haven't seen that.

I was actually considering the lack of news to be the opposite--a sign that it's close to ready, and that we should keep an eye out for that warning. There's been next to no new info for quite some time.

This.
Not many (if any, I haven't been following it that closely lately) new datamined items, less and less changes - it does feel to me like it's almost finished and ready to go.

And I still need that non-stompy dino... GAAAH~!! :x

I know there was a new build on Thursday, but I don't know how often they usually are.

Well... to be honest... the way it seems that Blizzard works is if they give us 30 new stable slots they would give us at least one more new pet than what we could store in our new 30 slots.

It's truly a vicious cycle.

I need more hunters, IMO.

They indicated they would give a warning for those farming valor, so I suspect it's at least 2 more weeks.
