Happy Tuesday morning, everyone. Today marks the beginning of the end for patch 5.0, as Terrace of Endless Spring, the final raid for this tier, opens up. Sure, we still have the heroic and Raid Finder versions yet to go, but it feels like we're entering the home stretch. Still, there's no release date for patch 5.1 on the horizon either (and no new raids coming with it anyway), so we may be beating down the Sha of Fear for quite some time.

That said, you won't be doing much beating this morning, as downtime starts at 5 a.m. PST and lasts at least 6 hours. Luckily, we're here to keep you busy. Read on for the usual roundup of the past week's news.
