Blizzard has revealed a new trailer showcasing their latest patch for MMO World of Warcraft, specifically the Mists of Pandaria expansion. The new patch will introduce an assortment of bug fixes, content and changes, but the largest addition is the new raid dungeon, The Thunder King.
New Raid: Throne of Thunder:
  • Emperor Lei Shen, the Thunder King, has returned to wreak his vengeance on Pandaria. It falls to the heroes of the Alliance and the Horde to stop the newly resurrected tyrant and his Zandalari allies in the massive new raid: Throne of Thunder.
  • Throne of Thunder is a sprawling citadel housing 12 new raid encounters, and players that defeat Emperor Lei Shen in Heroic mode can earn the opportunity to face an additional 13th foe.
  • The Raid Finder version of the Throne of Thunder will be divided into 4 different wings.
  • Join the Shado-Pan Assault in their singular drive to see Lei Shen, The Thunder King, defeated once and for all, and gain access to impressive Valor reward items. Reputation with this faction can be earned only within the Throne of Thunder raid dungeon.
  • For those of you still continuing your adventures in Pandaria, you can check out the full patch notes available for testing now on the PTR over here, but also check out the trailer below for a short glimpse at the new raid content, including giant dinosaurs.

    The spike on the front just looks ridiculous, its like they made the mount and were like "NEEDS MORE SPIKES" and just stuck a random spikey bit on it

    Yeah, I dunno how it works, cos sites like MMO Champion have been datamining it for weeks but it only just arrived on the PTR a few days ago. Maybe the content for it was able to be downloaded a while back but they only just actually turned it on on the server.

    Its not all trolls though, it'll mostly be Mogu I'd imagine cos the Thunder King is the dead (now ressurected) king of the Mogu. The trolls just show up cos that crazy tribe of trolls that wants to end the world have thrown their lot in with the Mogu. Same way that theres a troll boss in Mogu'shan Vaults, but its still mostly Mogu stuff.

    Don't be hatin' on the trolls mon! Wouldn't be a WoW expansion without some troll related content, just be thankful they haven't been able to come up with an excuse to deliver an entire tier of troll related content.
