The article aims to explain content that will not be available immediately when Tides of Vengeance goes live this week.
War Campaign (December 11)
New War Campaign chapters await both factions, but they are staggered and culminate in opening of the Battle of Dazar'alor raid.
8.1 Tides of Vengeance: War Campaign Part 1 (December 11th) (A): Continue the War Campaign by joining Jaina Proudmoore in the defense of Kul Tiras. Rally your allies and rout the Horde! (H): Continue the War Campaign by joining Rexxar in Kul Tiras and disrupting the Alliance's Azerite weapons testing. 8.1 Tides of Vengeance War Campaign Part 2 (December 18th) (A): A new ally in the war needs your help-- and a little bit of gnomish engineering--to execute his brilliant plan. (H): Assist Trade Prince Gallywix in a test drive of his deadly brand new mech, the G.M.O.D. Battle of Dazar'alor Raid (January 22)
The raid becomes available on January 22 and that's more than a month away from now.
January 22 — Normal and Heroic Difficulties January 29 — Mythic and Raid Finder Wing 1 February 12 — Raid Finder Wing 2 February 26 — Raid Finder Wing 3 Allied Races: Kul Tiran Humans & Zandalari Trolls
Both Allied Races were confirmed to join their respective factions after the raid and while no specific dates were announced yet, we at least know the unlock requirements for both races.
Mythic Season 2 (January 22)
New Seasonal Affix: Infested is retiring and once the new raid opens, Reaping will take its place. The Season 2 affix is themed after Bwonsamdi. Every 20% on the Enemy forces bar, Bwonsamdi resurrects spirits of fallen enemies that will charge at you no matter where you are. Item Level Increase: Blizzard's increasing dungeon rewards and difficulty across all dungeons as follows: Normal dungeons drop ilvl 340 gear (up from ilvl 310). Heroic dungeons drop ilvl 355 gear (up from ilvl 325). Mythic dungeons drop ilvl 370 gear (up from ilvl 340). Weekly Mythic Cache & Mythic+ Rewards: Items found in your Grand Challenger's Bounty and end-of-run rewards will have a higher item level as well. Mythic+2 rewards start at 375 up to item level 400 from Mythic+10. Check out more details in our guide. Azerite Armor Vendor: Items sold by Thaumaturge Vashreeen for Titan Residuum will be increased to a maximum of item level 415 (up from 385). Battle for Azeroth PvP Season 2 (January 22)
The second Season becomes available along with Mythic Season 2 and the Dazar'alor raid. This means an overall item level increase in rewards across the board. Gladiators will be able to earn a new proto-drake.
Crucible of the Storm Raid
Game files contain all data for the second 8.1 raid, but it probably won't open before the release of Patch 8.1.5.
If you pre-order the Warcraft III: Spoils of War Edition, you will receive the Meat Wagon mount this week in World of Warcraft.
Spoils of War costs $39.99 and comes with various in-game rewards and you can find them all here. The game will be released on or before December 31, 2019.
Meat Wagon is a new mount reward available in Tides of Vengeance. If you already pre-ordered Spoils of War, you will find the mount in your mailbox tomorrow or when Patch 8.1 goes live after maintenance in your gameplay region. The mount is really cool and comes with a catapult that hurls meat.
"A favorite unit of the Lich King, both for its power as a siege weapon, and the satisfying sound of flung meat."
Animations (Run/Mount Special)
Do you like the mount? Let us know in the comments!
With a fair amount of game adaptations heading over to Netflix in TV show form, the most recent and significant being the Witcher, Str1der has taken it upon himself to make a trailer for what a World of Warcraft show might look like. With the Warcraft movie not having done so well and having somewhat deviated from the original lore (although, so has the game itself at this point), it would really be a nice thing to see all the ancillary content featured in novels and comics etc. brought together in TV show format.
The trailer is pretty well put together, however the choice of the song "Human" is clearly Alliance-favoritism and wholly inappropriate, therefore we all need to boycott it!!11 (For those of you that are sensitive to the faction allegiances, well, first of all, what's wrong with you, and second, that was a joke.)
My personal favorite is when Illidan shows up and the song goes "some people have real problems", which is perhaps one of the most accurate song to scene pairings in the history of trailers.
So, what do you think of the trailer and the idea of a Netflix WoW show? Should it focus on present day Azeroth and follow the expansions to give us a better understanding of the characters we interact with, or would you prefer it to start from the very beginning and eventually catch up?
The Hivemind is a new secret mount that will become available with Tides of Vengeance. Check out the model and join the hunt on Tuesday!
The Hivemind -> The Hivemind
"A true union of minds."
As with every major content update, it's time for new secrets! According to the latest tweet by Muffinus, this appears to be the most elaborate puzzle ever, as the image depicts Celestalon who is responsible for the Endless Halls puzzle.
Placeholder for tweet 1071167789354774528 Currently, we don't know how the mount works but there's an interesting spell "Joined Hivemind" related to it that suggests multiple passengers and each passenger increases its mounted speed by 10%.

Iway is back with another interesting soloing video. The player managed to solo Atal'Dazar +13 with his Demon Hunter in almost 8 hours. Congratulations!
