Blizzard Entertainment released a teaser trailer for World of Warcraft's Patch 5.2 today. The patch, dubbed "The Thunder King," provides players with a number of new activities.

The titular Thunder King is Emperor Lei Shen. He has returned to Pandaria and must be defeated by players. Lei Shen is a boss in the new raid zone Throne of Thunder, available on three difficulty settings. This new raid is supplemented by two world bosses, Ooondasta and Nalak the Storm Lord.

Players will also battle Lei Shen's forces at a new daily quest hub called The Isle of the Thunder King. They can complete quests with both PvE and PvP objectives in order to curry favor with new factions. They'll also gain access to a Lightning Forge where blacksmiths can craft powerful new items.

The patch will also, naturally, add more loot to the game. The new factions in the patch will offer new equipment to players. There are also several dinosaur-like mounts to earn. Presumably the new mounts are spread across the solo and raid content to ensure everyone's got something to strive for.

Patch 5.2 is currently on the public testing realm. Any interested subscriber can download the test client and give the new content a shot.
