CATCHING SUMMER

Pet collectors will want to mark their calendars for June 21 when the Qiraji Guardling begins to spawn once more for the summer season. You’ll be able to find and capture this wild pet in Silithus through September 23.

Summer is the perfect time to head out to the lakes, oceans, and streams of Azeroth to do a little fishing.  During the spring and on into summer, the Raw Summer Bass is available to catch and counts toward The Oceanographer achievement which requires anglers to catch 31 different saltwater fish.

Looking to cool off, but water sports aren’t your thing? Go fly on a Rocfeather Skyhorn Kite in Highmountain and catch a cool breeze. Some assembly is required however, and you’re going to need to do a little footwork to add this Toy to your collection. To assemble, you’ll need to collect a Derelict Skyhorn Kite, Shimmering Roc Feather, Delicate Roc Feather, and Gleaming Roc Feather from treasure chests throughout Highmountain. Once assembled, you can glide from the top of Highmountain Peak (or any tall spot) and ride the winds above the Broken Isles.

They generally don't put patches in the monthly updates from what I remember - it's more to do with events etc.

ah fair enough, i knew there would be a reason :)

Well, glad to have helped! I think it's mainly because it's put up by the community team, so they are more focused on player interaction and all that kinda jazz.

      Wildcard Gaming finished up the Battle of Dazar'alor, downing Jaina Proudmoore World First on Heroic and crossed the finish line on 9/9 bosses down! It's a Horde first kill, which usually isn't that relevant, but since this raid has a particular faction-themed bent it's slightly more so. The speed of the kill was expected, as pretty much all Heroic endbosses die on the first day. The real race starts next week and we'll have plenty of content to enjoy, between Method and Exorsus streams, our own daily race recaps and the live progress coverage over at Method's raid race site as well.

      And here's the video of the kill:

      Here's a look at the Alliance Intro Cinematic from the Battle of Dazar'alor. It shows their arrival at the Port of Zandalar, and while the fleet appears to be hopelessly outmatched, in the end, the tides of war shift in their favor.
      Lord Admiral Jaina Proudmoore and Gelbin Mekkatorque make landfall at the Port of Zandalar after defeating the Zandalari fleet with Mekkatorque's magic device that makes all boats explode.
      Earlier today, we previewed the Rastakhan Defeat Cinematic. This video was uploaded by MMO-Champion and you can find the source article here.

      Blizzard today clarified in a series of blue posts that clearing the new raid won't be required to unlock Zandalari Trolls and the Allied Race isn't coming with the raid or Mythic Season 2, but later in Patch 8.1.5 as stated at BlizzCon.
      If you've been patiently waiting for the new Allied Races to arrive with Mythic Season 2 and Battle of Dazar'alor, you'll have to wait a little longer. Both Allied Races will arrive in Patch 8.1.5 and Blizzard also specified unlock requirements for both. The good news is that clearing the new raid isn't required to start the quest to recruit them, but you'll still need to complete the entire War Campaign up to the last chapter, reach Exalted with two factions, and complete the story of Kul Tiras & Zandalar.
      Unlock Requirements
      Allied Race Unlock Requirements Kul Tiran Humans Exalted with Proudmoore Admiralty + Tides of Vengeance + Zandalar Forever! Zandalari Trolls Exalted with The Zandalari Empire + Tides of Vengeance + A Nation United Are you disappointed that Kul Tiran Humans and Zandalari Trolls will not be available in Tides of Vengeance or do you not mind at all? Let us know in the comments!

      I’m curious if I can unlock it today or if I have to wait for the new raid to go to raid finder, anyone know for sure?
      At BlizzCon we talked about these Allied Races coming in Patch 8.1.5. It might feel like a new patch day with the season update and raid opening up today, but this is still the continuation of the Tides of Vengeance story. We will have more information on the Zandalari and Kul Tiran soon!
      The wait sucks, but I’m at a point of apathy about it now. I wish more clear info would come out about to what extent raiding is related to unlocking the two races. Can the quest be done in LFR if a quest is needed?
      There will be no raiding required. Some people may have seen the requirements on the PTR and we do plan to talk about them more to help spread the word.
      As it currently stands, if you do the Zandalar quest arc (through the Blood Gate quest and Zul’s death), the War Campaign through the Tides of Vengeance achievement, and get Exalted with the Zandalari Empire, you will be able to do the questline to get access to the Zandalari Allied Race as soon as 8.1.5 goes live.
      What are the requirements for Kul’tirans? I’m assuming something equivalant to the Zandalari but specifics matter.
      Tides of Vengeance War Campaign achievement is the same. The story arc should be “A Nation United” achievement. Exalted with Proudmoore Admiralty.

      Our friends at MMO-Champion uploaded the Rastakhan Defeat Cinematic to their YouTube channel, and it's full of juicy spoilers. Learn more about what happens to the king in the Battle of Dazar'alor raid!
      The fate of Rastakhan was sealed the moment he made a desperate deal with Bwonsamdi, the Loa of Death. Rastakhan was truly desperate and in need of power to defend his kingdom from Zul and G'huun, after his beloved Rezan died.
      Rastakhan promised Bwonsamdi to serve him in life and death and in Battle of Dazar'alor raid, he falls victim to the Alliance forces who marched upon Dazar'alor. In the cinematic, we can see the king dying in Talanji's arms as she learns about Rastakhan's deal with Bwonsamdi.

      Battle for Azeroth PvP Season 2 is now live, and with it comes a few system changes and updated Conquest rewards.
      Conquest Reward Updates
      With PvP Season 2, we’ve fine-tuned the Conquest reward schedule to provide players with more variety and flexibility to get the kind of gear they’re looking for.
      Players who earn 500 Conquest points in a given week will receive one Quartermaster’s Coin and a piece of gear from that week’s selection. Players might also earn an additional piece of gear or Quartermaster’s Coin each week by using a weekly bonus roll token in PvP. 10 Quartermaster’s Coins can be exchanged for a Warlord’s Trophy, which players can use to upgrade a piece of Sinister Gladiator’s gear to a higher item level (based on their current Rated PvP bracket).
      Alliance PvP Season 2 Armor During weeks when the Conquest reward is a head, shoulder, or chest item, players can choose from one of four different pieces of Azerite gear. For the weeks when the Conquest reward is not an Azerite piece, trinket, or weapon, players will be able to choose gear from one of two different slots such as legs and wrists, hands and back, or finger and feet.

        Horde PvP Season 2 Armor The PvP reward UI will now show the criteria needed to receive your weekly chest. Elite sets (available to earn for a limited time only) can also be viewed in the Appearances interface under the Set tab.
      Ranked PvP Rewards
      We’ve also updated the naming conventions for the brackets. Now when players reach a 2400 rating in any bracket (2v2, 3v3, or 10v10 Rated Battlegrounds), they will be moved into the Elite bracket. Like other brackets, players will immediately be granted an achievement and title when reaching the bracket. Elite titles are class-specific, and players will receive a unique tabard for their collection.

      PvP Season 2 Alliance and Horde Mounts Season 2 Mounts
      During Battle for Azeroth Season 2, players can work toward claiming the Vicious Black Bonesteed or Vicious Black Warsaber. Once earned, players can fill the bar again to receive a Vicious Saddle, allowing them to purchase a mount from previous seasons.
      Keep an eye on the Player vs. Player Leaderboards during the season to follow who’s making waves at the top.
