As just like all other patches, nobody knows until 1-2 weeks before release.
So just a few weeks, better start gathering gear :)
Just checked MMO,

Patch 5.2 PTR Early January - The Thunder King is Risen
The Blizzard CM team just sent us this with the following message: Happy Holidays from the World of Warcraft team! Here’s a small present to tide you over until the new year.

Im sorry for bothering but atleast its clear now for every1

Sure as Hell won't stop people asking on a daily basis.

The patch should be available around January on Public Test Realms. Its official release to the general playerbase will be later on, late February or mid March is my guess. With any luck, this patch gets sufficient feedback and testing, rather than "meh, we'll send it out and hotfix it at some point". I'm not at all saying that's how Blizzard works, I just don't want this patch to be the start of such a thing. Forget deadlines - you can put the damn patch out when you're certain you know what you're doing ^^
Seems it cost me 6-7 Weeks to switch from full Sha gear to Disc so it can wait i guess..
The date has not yet been set in stone, but hopefully the wait shouldn't be too long :-)
ragnaros would say "too soon!"
i agree with ragnaros btw :P

Disc priests clearly need buffs before they are playable:

As for the announced PTR date making things clear, history learns you're probably looking at 6-8 weeks of PTR before the patch goes live, depending on the amount of new content that needs testing ofcourse.
If you really want to play it, play it. Don't let "optimal" or "not the best" hold you back from enjoying a game. :)

(He says, while avoiding making a new class on Diablo 3...)

Progressing now will mean when the "buffs" come in 5.2, you'll be in a better position to enjoy them.
tha tpicture that was sent to MMO was cruel...why temp us like this.

On a more serious note, since claims that this will "be as epic as ulduar" Is there any fear that you may be promising something you cannot deliver?

Now do not get me wrong, I firmly think that it will be an epic raid and I cannot wait cause so far I am almost loving the story as much as I did in WotLK but I mean Uldaur was considered by so many people as amazing and not since been beaten in quality
SOOOOOOOON...
Driuds needs to reroll class in pvp because of the huge nerf they gets in 5.2
Who cares when it comes out, will be !@#$ like 5.1, 5.0 and 4.3 anyway, there is nothing they can make to improve wow gameplay, wow died 4.3 when it completely changed gameplay.
Disc Priests are the ones i wouldnt buff lol

Just because you cant play them doesnt mean there bad, most stats say disc priest is the best atm and has been for a long long time over many expansions infact.
And dear GM remember to send a message to the developers about removing the need to farm XP, reputation and points for gear in the battlegrounds so we get rid of the botters/cheaters for good. And prefeerly in this next patch!
Cheers and have a happy new year!.
