You read that headline right -- Tuesday, August 27th, our 13th PvP season will be at its end. For one week after that date, there will be the usual accounting process to see who gets the PvP titles and rewards as both the Arena and Rated Battlegrounds seasons will be in abeyance. Conquest points will be converted to honor if not spent by that time, and any honor points over 4000 will be converted to gold, as has generally been the case during previous end of season weeks.
At present, Season 14 is expected to begin one week after the end of Season 13. If this follows the pattern of previous seasons this expansion, we're on track for patch 5.4 to drop the same day as Season 13's end (Patch 5.2 dropped on March 5th, the same day Season 12 ended) or within that one week period. So this is a really good benchmark for how close we are to patch 5.4 - it won't come before the end of Season 13, but it may come that day.
Keeping in mind that there can always be delays, dates can be moved back, and that no date for patch 5.4 has been announced, it definitely feels like it's getting closer. For the full announcement leap behind the cut with us.
