Main Changes in the 7.0 Legion Pre-Patch

Recommended Posts


Every time a new pre-patch launches, there is a long list of changes that are due to be implemented. We've listed the major changes that you can expect as soon as 7.0 launches!

The first thing to cover is the removals of the pre-patch, which you can find below:

  • Challenge Modes: The Warlords of Draenor challenge modes will be removed in 7.0 and will no longer be available for completion. This means that you need to complete them before 7.0 if you want to earn the title, mount and weapon transmogs.
  • Raiding: The changes to Hellfire Citadel will happen in 7.0, with the Cutting Edge and Ahead of the Curve no longer being available. 
  • Brawler's Guild: The Brawler's Guild Season 2 will end, but this time it won't come back straight away. It looks like the developers are hoping to give it a bit of a makeover before releasing it for Season 3.
  • Currency Changes: Just as we saw Valor Points and Justice Points being removed, the Honor and Conquest points will also be disappearing, most likely turning into gold as they normally do. 
  • Legendary Ring: The ring questline will no longer be available to start, but you can still complete it if you have already started.
  • PvP: Season 3 will come to an end with the pre-patch.
  • Glyphs: We will no longer have any major glyphs, given the coming changes to the glyph system.
  • Garrison: The gold that you receive from your garrison missions will be nerfed hard in the pre-patch, as well as the Pet Charm droprates.

While we can see many of the general culprits above, including Challenge Mode removals and season ends, it's not all bad news! There's plenty of new content coming with the pre-patch, all of which will line us up to prepare for the invasions. Here are some of the major changes that are coming:

  • New class/race combination: The Gnome Hunters will indeed be prowling the streets, waiting to capture the biggest pets they can!
  • Class Trials: These will allow you to try your new class before using a level 100 boost, just to make sure you're choosing the right thing!
  • Pre-patch event: The pre-patch events will be happening across the world, including invasions and the "mind-control" events.
  • Transmogrification: The new wardrobe system will be implemented, which will finally allow players to clear out their banks and void storage of the countless sets they have collected.
  • Secondary Stat Removal: With Legion, we will be seeing the removal of a number of secondary stats that are either being standardised or removed, such as Spirit, Multistrike and Bonus Armor.
  • Gold Cap: The gold cap is going to be increased, as well as the cap on bids for the Auction House and Black Market, to 9,999,999 G.
  • Extra Character Slot: In order to accommodate the introduction of the Demon Hunter, we are going to be given an extra character slot, raising the total to 12.
  • User Interface: All of the new quality-of-life changes to the UI in the beta will be introduced with the pre-patch, including the new health bars, animations and so on.
  • Challenge Mode Item: Despite the Challenge Modes being removed with the pre-patch, a new item will be added that allows you to unlock the Warlords of Draenor Challenge Mode transmog looks on every character, if you have completed them on Gold already. It will cost 3,000 G.

While this last change isn't necessarily coming with the release of the pre-patch, it's going to happen at some point before Legion launch.

  • Demon Hunters: Those that have acquired early access to create a Demon Hunter, you'll be able to make them at some point in patch 7.0. While we don't have a date yet, it's definitely going to be before launch.

Do you think we've missed something out, or do you just want to tell us your favourite new change? Let us know in the comments below!

The moose mount/mythic mount won't be nerfed until legion launches. The Azorea/'#Friendshipmoose' (on twitter) looked into it more, and the moose will still be around until august 30th. Mythic mount will be counted as rare drop when legion drops too.

Fixed that! Was just going on what had happened last expansion with the SoO mount!

One thing I believe I read though is that there isn't one huge hard pre patch like they usually do. I believe I read that the prepatch is coming in chunks, with HFC and character changes coming first. Legion event second. Then demon hunter and other various changes later. So, instead of everything on (the leeked date of july 19th) we are getting a little bit at a time.

      New enchantment, transmogrifiable gear, and mount listings have been added. Unclaimed Black Market Auction House Containers will now fully create the item when open or viewed in any way. No peeking! Removed Grimoire of the Four Winds. The French patch notes, however, provide more details on which items will exactly have a chance to pop up on the BMAH starting with Patch 8.2.5 and here's the original post in French.

      Patch 8.2 launched some time ago, but Snapback Scuttler only became available this week to all players who've kept up with the Nazjatar meta-achievement.
      In order to get the mount, one must complete all requirements of the Undersea Usurper achievement. The meta-achievement was time-gated, which was caused by Periodic Destruction as it required 13 weeks after Rise of Azshara to be completed. Enjoy your mount if you've completed the meta!
      Snapback Scuttler
      Giant crabs are native to Nazjatar and favored food of the naga. This one must have been well-kept to grow this large.

      In Patch 8.2.5, Alliance players will finally be able to gain the Hivemother's favor and earn the Honeyback Harvester mount, and various butterfly pets in Stormsong Valley.
      Honeyback Harvester

      Here's the official preview of the bumble bee mount.

      Stormsong Valley’s beekeepers report that a buzzare pheromenon is about to take place in the region. 
      In the next few weeks, savvy insect enthusiasts will be able to uncover the secrets of a new hive in the mountains of Stormsong Valley. Perhaps a small companion will be able to show you the way . . .
      Alliance players can work with Barry the Beekeeper to locate Stormsong Valley’s newest hive and court the favor of the Hivemother in order to purchase bee-themed items and earn a new bumble bee mount, the Honeyback Harvester.

      While most Harvesters dream only of honey and flowers, this adventurous specimen looks to the wide world beyond Stormsong Valley.
      Float like a butterfly and sting like a bee with these new battle pets.
      Papi: Legend has it that these purple butterflies came from a place called Devil’s Island.
      Drop: Fresh Jelly Deposit in Stormsong Valley.
      Sunsoaked Flitter: The wings of this butterfly start off with no distinct color, but slowly change to yellow as they spend time in the sunlight.
      Drop: Fresh Jelly Deposit in Stormsong Valley.
      Crimson Skipper: This butterfly is stained red from the blood of its enemies.
      Drop: Honey Smasher.
      Both Horde and Alliance players can add these beauties to their bug collection!
      As you work toward earning the Hivemother’s favor, be sure to keep your eyes peeled for hidden treasures.
      Praise the Sun
      If you see a ray of light, follow it—at the other end you may encounter some beeing that could use your assistance. Helpful heroes will be granted sweet rewards including the Glyph of Dire Bees which can be looted by Hunters from both factions.
      Pest Patrol
      New creatures have swarmed the area. Squash them for a chance to collect unique loot.
      Head over to Stormsong Valley in the next couple of weeks to discover what lies in store for you!

      In Patch 8.2.5, you will no longer purchase expensive auctions by mistake, because all purchases over 50K require you to confirm the purchase in a dialogue box, as noted in the patch notes and datamined global strings.
      Blizzard (Source)
      User Interface
      Auction House purchases over 50,000 gold now require players to confirm the purchase in a dialogue box. Global Strings
      BUYOUT_AUCTION_CONFIRMATION_STRING - BUYOUT BUYOUT_AUCTION_CONFIRMATION_STING_EXPENSIVE - Buyout auction for %s. Type $s to confirm. The confirmation box is in place to prevent you from accidentally purchasing items, which have been put on the Auction House for riduculous amounts of gold.
