This documents details and speculation for the next major patch for Mists of Pandaria.
Patch 5.5.0 is mostly only a rumor, but still a possibility according to Dave Kosak, in order to have a restored Orgrimmar appear before the next expansion. However, recent indicators from official blogs may have this patch before the expansion as the systems patch currently called Patch 6.0.0, so this patch may not exist.
A pre- Warlords of Draenor patch has technically been confirmed. Although 5.4 was the last major content patch of the expansion, an expected patch is intended to bridge the gap between this expansion ( Mists of Pandaria) and the next.
Arena season 15 could also end with this patch.
It has been suggested that Patch 5.5.0 has been 'canceled'. However, there will still likely be some 'last major patch' before the expansion to at least to bridge the transition, even if its details are not the ones last speculated.
