In “World of Warcraft” patch 5.2, citizens of Orgrimmar and Stormwind will again be able to look upon the gates of their cities with pride. MMO Champion has released unofficial pictures and datamined information from the public test realm build 16446 today. ZAMOfficial on YouTube reports that the park in Stormwind has not yet been restored on the PTR. However, there is still plenty of time for it to be implemented by the time the patch goes live if that is Blizzard's plan. Some players are hoping that when the park is restored, it will be inhabited by Pandaren.
Besides pictures of the newly rebuilt capital cities, there are also five new models and 19 new icons on the site. Check out their list of the tier 15 set bonuses and class changes. There are nine new companion pets listed, including three pandas. Players were given a preview of the new mounts in the teaser that Blizzard released earlier this week and now know that two of them are called Primordial Direhorns and Primal Raptors.
The development team has clearly been listening to players' frustration with the reputation system and will be adding stolen insignias that bind to account and give 1,000 reputation with one of the four Pandaren factions: August Celestials, Shado-Pan, Klaxxi and Golden Lotus.
Also related to helping make the endgame a little easier, the game's lead designer @ghostcrawler confirmed via Twitter on Tuesday that players using Looking For Raid will experience increased drop rates for gear in order to help them get to the next tier of raiding more quickly.
