Blizzard has announced that they will release a pre-MOP patch on 28 August, 5.0.4, a patch that will bring no less than six gigabytes of data.
The patch will include a new UI, the Theramore Island scenario, new skills and glyph system and most likely some of the new cool features from Mists of Pandaria (eg. hunters already carrying their bows on their back).
Arena season 11 will also end on 29 August, the players being awarded with their PVP titles, gladiators, duelists, rivals and challengers.
What is interesting is that the patch will hit on the same day when Guild Wars 2 will be launched, on the same 28 August.
It is not long until 28 August from now on, players should try to enjoy what has remained from this expansion, PVP and battlegrounds mostly as when the patch will hit, with new skills, glyphs, high imbalances will happen as it happened when Wrath of the Lich King was released.
The same when hunters received focus in a Cataclysm pre-patch, everything changed. So, almost two weeks to enjoy what we have right now.
In other news, tomorrow we will see the opening cinematic video for Mists of Pandaria that will be made public at Gamescom, a gaming convention event from Cologne.
