Patch 5.1: Latest build is a release candidate


On logging in to the Patch 5.1 PTR this morning to investigate some other issue, WoW Insider noticed a rather important change to the version information, which can always be found to the bottom left-hand side of the screen. This usually indicates the build of the PTR that is active on servers, notable but not of huge interest, but it recently changed:
Patch 51 Latest build is a release candidate
While this is exciting, it definitely doesn't mean that Patch 5.1 is ready to go live. This is one of what could well be several release candidates, far from a complete version. At the Activision Blizzard Investor Call, however, Mike Morhaime did mention that World of Warcraft had more content coming during the holiday season.

Will Blizzard be able to keep up this pace? While patch 5.1 isn't complete, it's only been 8 weeks since the launch of Mists of Pandaria.

Mists of Pandaria is here! The level cap has been raised to 90, many players have returned to Azeroth, and pet battles are taking the world by storm. Keep an eye out for all of the latest news, and check out our comprehensive guide to Mists of Pandaria for everything you'll ever need to know.
