We don’t need daily quests anymore, Anne Stickney, WoW Insider, 1/25/13.
I’m all for unlockable content, but I’m not sure I like the daily system tied to reputation. Maybe I should post about this later…
Patch 5.2 honors El’s Anglin’, adds sea monster and new battle pets to fishing, Alex Ziebart, WoW Insider, 1/24/13.
It looks like a new NPC, El, joins the Anglers. Great!

They named their kid Jaina. Seriously.

Will Patch 5.2 kill PvP twinking?, Olivia Grace, WoW Insider, 1/24/13.
I’m not sure how it would kill twinking, but I think scaling players levels to the highest level of their PvP bracket is pretty cool! (And scaling in PvP works well in TOR.)
Patch 5.2: Valor and Conquest Points will be reset, Olivia Grace, WoW Insider, 2/6/13.
Valor converts to Justice, and Conquest converts to Honor. That’s normal. What’s different is that current Valor gear will still cost Valor. Rewards from 5.0 factions will be at a 75% discount and rewards from 5.1 factions will be at a 50% discount. That’s great, but then why take all of our Valor away? I understand the predicament in wanting to ensure people don’t get ahead, but that sucks a little.
Direhorn mounts coming to patch 5.2 as reputation rewards, Elizabeth Harper, WoW Insider, 2/5/13.
