    • Developer’s note: We want battlegrounds and skirmishes to be a worthwhile and rewarding activity while leveling, but that should not be the most efficient method for gaining XP. While we've decreased the experience from PvP, it is still more efficient than it was in previous expansions.

Quests

  • Fixed a bug causing players who died during the sequence of Dalaran's teleportion would get stuck in Deadwind Pass.

Artifact

  • Rogue player should no longer sometimes experience issues using their Smoke Bomb during "The Unseen Blade".
  • Players should no longer be erroneously placed in a phase in Deadwind Pass that makes them unable to complete quests in the area, including "Following the Curse."
  • Hunters completing to quest to obtain their second or third artifact should no longer receive the quest "Hunter to Hunter" after turn-in.
  • The points of interest for the Warrior quest “Legacy of the Icebreaker" are now displaying correctly and the stage objectives update appropriately.

Azsuna

  • Daglop should no longer disengage with the player, allowing “Minion! Kill Them!” to be completed normally.
  • During "The Right Weapon for the Job", shipwrecked captives in the Shipwreck Arena clubhouse should no longer glow as if they’re viable targets for the quest.
  • Players who leave the area and return during the “The Scythe of Souls” should be able to complete the quest.
  • Players entering the Nor'danil Wellspring in Azsuna should no longer be incorrectly queued to enter the Withered Scenario in Suramar.
  • Players should no longer fail to loot several quest objects in the Nar’thalas Academy during quests such as "Study Hall: Combat Research" and “Dressing with Class”.

Highmountain

  • The bungee rope attached to the player should no longer disappear during the quest “Going Down, Going Up”.
  • Mayla Highmountain should no longer leave combat and reset the Wrath of Dargrul boss fight during “The Underking”.
  • On “Murlocs: The Next Generation” and “Oh, the Clawdacity!”, Murky’s abilities no longer affect other players in PvP. Gurrullrurlll mrrrgrglru ruluulll.

Stormheim

  • "Waking the Shieldmaiden" now has a correctly-placed location dot on the map.

Val’sharah

  • Fixed a number of issues with the "Defend The Temple" Bonus Objective in Val'sharah.

UI

  • Obelisk of the Void should appear in the Dungeon Journal for all ranged damage dealers and healers.

Zones

  • Orgrimmar, Stormwind, and previously invasion-affected areas should once again be unified for single realms.
    • Developer’s note: On RP servers, we’re setting sharding and cross-realm zoning back to how things were working before the Burning Legion invaded. This had been changed for stability during pre-launch events and invasions.

Have you deleted your WTF/Cache files? You'll need to reformat your addons, but apparently this fixes it.

      In this article, we're taking a look at content worth finishing before Battle for Azeroth goes live.
      Ahead of the Curve: Argus the Unmaker & Cutting Edge: Argus the Unmaker
      Both achievements will be removed once the pre-patch goes live. If you don't have the achievement yet, the first round of Mythic Argus nerfs has already been deployed to live servers, so defeating Argus on Mythic difficulty should be easier now. 
      The Chosen Achievement
      The achievement will become unobtainable in Battle for Azeroth.
      Placeholder for tweet 1008845805501837316 A Challenging Look (Mage Tower Artifact Apppearance)
      Blizzard confirmed that the Mage Tower will be permanently up at some point before Battle for Azeroth goes live, but they did not clarify if they meant the pre-patch or the actual expansion. Given how Azerite traits no longer work on 8.0 PTR, it's safe to assume we're going to see an announcement regarding the permanent Mage Tower in the coming days.
      Field Medic Achievement
      First Aid will be removed in Battle for Azeroth and all achievements related to the Profession will become Feats of Strength.
      Brawler's Guild Removal
      Brawler's Guild will be on hiatus with the release of BfA, but it's very likely that we'll see it return later on in Patch 8.1 or 8.1.5. Don't forget to get the Brawler's Burly Basilisk mount!
      Strand of Ancients Removal
      The battleground will be removed in Battle for Azeroth. Achievements will turn into Feats of Strength (Master of Strand of the Ancients).
      Kirin Tor Summoning Crystal Mount
      Violet Spellwing will not be available soon. Finish the "Blood of a Titan" quest by looting Blood of the Unmaker from Argus on Heroic difficulty or higher.
      Legion Mythic Difficulty Mounts
      As is tradition, the drop rate of Mythic difficulty raid mounts will be reduced to 1% when Battle for Azeroth goes live. Legion only introduced two Mythic mounts to the game:
      Gul'dan (Fiendish Hellfire Core) Argus (Shackled Ur'zul)

      With Battle for Azeroth just two months away, Blizzard has updated the old Legion login screen with a new one in this week's Beta Build 26871.
      The background is comprised of a sunlit sky and birds flying over the walls of Lordaeron, while in the forefront, we see various artifacts that solidify Battle for Azeroth's main theme -- the upcoming faction conflict.
      The main title music has been previewed earlier and you can listen to the whole track below.
      Blizzard (Source)
      With every expansion, our musical mages reach deep down into their souls and summon a tableau of sound to accompany your next adventure. Building upon a variety of musical themes from World of Warcraft over the years, composer Glenn Stafford has infused his magic into the new main title for Battle for Azeroth, “Before the Storm.” Sit back, relax, and let the music carry you into the heart of Azeroth.
      “Before the Storm” was composed and arranged by Glenn Stafford; features additional music by Neal Acree, Sam Cardon, Clint Bajakian, and David Arkenstone; and includes classic World of Warcraft themes by Jason Hayes.

      A short batch today as Battle for Azeroth approaches, focusing on Antorus Mythic. It's all about the final boss, Argus the Unmaker, nerfing his health and two abilities.
      June 19 (source)
      Antorus, The Burning Throne Sargeras' Rage and Fear damage reduced by 15%. Argus' health reduced by 3% in Mythic Difficulty.

      In case you missed it, there was a storytelling panel back at E3 a few days ago with Steve Danuser, Sr. Narrative Designer, Terran Gregory, Project Director and Christie Golden, Sr. Writer. The full title of the panel is World of Warcraft Storytelling: Bringing a Robust Universe to Life Through Different Mediums,  and covers how the writing team connect all the disparate WoW lore and story sources, including books, comics, as well as all other online and in-game sources.
      With Battle for Azeroth being such a divisive expansion (perhaps intentionally), even way before its launch, WoW's story is under quite a big magnifying glass as of late, with Horde players in particular not being satisfied with the direction their faction/warchief is going, so this is the perfect time to buff up on just how the story department thinks and functions.
      The team discusses the interconnectivity of expansion stories, the bigger role and quantity of in-game cinematics, the relevance of the faction conflict in WoW, character deaths and much more:
