Patch 5.2: The Thunder King is Risen, PTR Early January

Patch 52 The Thunder King is Risen, PTR Early January
Blizzard emailed us the above screenshot this morning, heralding the rise of the Thunder King in patch 5.2. Blizzard has been tweeting and talking a lot about patch 5.2 recently, so it shouldn't be a huge surprise that the PTR will drop soon -- sometime in early January.

The following message was also sent along with the screenshot.
