 DECLARE YOUR ALLEGIANCE IN THE BATTLE FOR AZEROTH

All-out war between the Horde and the Alliance erupts in the seventh expansion to Blizzard Entertainment’s World of Warcraft®

Recruit and play as new Allied Races, plunder the Islands of the Great Sea in search of vital resources, lead the charge in grand-scale PvE Warfronts, and more 

ANAHEIM, Calif.—November 3, 2017—The battle against the Legion has left the world broken—but the shattered trust between the Alliance and the Horde could prove the hardest wound to mend. Blizzard Entertainment today unveiled plans for World of Warcraft®: Battle for Azeroth, a new expansion to the company’s acclaimed massively multiplayer online role-playing game that will test players’ resolve as they champion their faction’s cause in a devastating new war.

In Battle for Azeroth, the fall of the Burning Legion has set off a series of disastrous incidents that reignites the furious rivalry between the noble Alliance and the mighty Horde. As a new age of warfare begins, Azeroth’s heroes must set out on a harrowing journey in search of new allies, race to claim the world’s mightiest resources to turn the tides of war, and fight on several fronts to determine which side will lead Azeroth into its uncertain future.

“Conflict is at the heart of the Warcraft® saga, and in Battle for Azeroth, tensions that have been simmering for a long time escalate into all-out war,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “World of Warcraft players are incredibly passionate about the characters and factions they identify with in the game, and this expansion will make them prouder than ever to declare their allegiance to the Horde or to the Alliance.”

World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth includes new features and content that will put heroes’ dedication and fortitude to the test. In this expansion, players will be called upon to:

  • Explore Two Fabled Kingdoms: As a champion of the Horde, travel to the Zandalar empire to persuade the trolls to lend their naval might. As a defender of the Alliance, venture to the seafaring kingdom of Kul Tiras, home of Jaina Proudmoore, and rally its inhabitants to fight for your cause.
  • Recruit Allied Races: Take a new form for your adventures as several new playable Allied Races, each with unique racial abilities. Earn the favor of the Highmountain tauren, Void elves, Dark Iron dwarves, and others to create a new character of that race and add their strength to your faction.
  • Plunder the Islands of the Great Sea: Scour Azeroth’s myriad uncharted Islands and conquer an ever-changing array of enemies, environments, and objectives. Battle in groups of three as you race against cunning rival intruders—or enemy players—to collect each island’s resources and fuel the war effort.
  • Charge Into the Warfronts: Fight on the battlefields of a large-scale, 20-player cooperative Warfront to claim a key strategic location. Capture resources to build your faction’s forces, lead the charge as your troops lay siege to objectives, and fight the enemy commander to claim victory in this new PvE mode inspired by classic Warcraft RTS battles.
  • Infuse Your Armor with Titanic Might: Seek out Azerite, an invaluable new resource that has emerged in the Legion’s wake. Imbue the Heart of Azeroth—a legendary neck piece entrusted to each hero by Magni Bronzebeard—with Azerite to customize your armor with new powers and traits.
  • Battle to Level 120: Trace the corruption of the Blood God to the Underrot, unearth the secrets of a lost titan vault, escape from the Drust Realm of the Dead, and more as you quest through 10 new levels—then continue to grow in power through new World Quests, raids, dungeons, and more.
  • Instantly Boost to Level 110: Enter the raging conflict between the Horde and the Alliance prepared to survive on the front lines of a vicious new war.
  • Connect Through Communities: Join up with WoW®players who share common interests in persistent cross-realm Communities. Share strategies with members of your class, fraternize with auction house magnates, talk shop with fellow tailors, and expand your social circles.

idk why they went with the PVP expansion instead of the Old Gods one.  I am both dissapointed and happy in a way. Bringing back PVP but the new exp is not linking with the current one.

Actually not surprised they went this route. I am pretty sure Old Gods will still have some part in this expansion in some form or another just like C'thun, Yogg, and Y'shaaraj. 

Pretty freaking hyped about this though!!!

Totally disappointed since I don't care at all about the war between Horde and Alliance.

It's too sudden, i think it will be some dark force behind that led to this...at the end of eEgion alliance and horde were on very friendly terms. And now they waging war against each other.

Also you all have to think about other factors, Jaina went missing during Legion and so did Sylvanas. I don't think the Old God, N'Zoth had anything to do with this war, but I am willing to bet that it's these two characters that are driving force to this all out war.

Indeed..the Old Gods feed on conflict and hatred...and since both new zones are surrounded by waters, maybe Queen Azshara will appear in some way.

Hey guys, Sargeras opened this giant wound in Silithus, but lets just fight amongst ourselves and go back to fighting Zandalari trolls AGAIN. Just ignore the wound and the void lords, we'd rather fight amongst our ant-selves until the void lords throws a bowling ball the size of azeroth at us.

 

No, it doesn't make sense, but this is what it is :(

so will we still be advancing our artifact weapons? or will the first green we pick up in the new xpac be more powerful and all that time we spent on artifact weapons was a total waste of time!

Yeah, absolutely not hyped for upcoming expansion. This whole concept is a facepalm after the "For Azeroth" motto and after so much rumoured void content.

Since Horde and Alliance pandarians can talk to each other in their language, and Horde/Ally demon hunters can communicate in Demonic, I was all but trying to force myself to harbor some hope that we wouldn't go back to the same old Red vs Blue rut.

Oh well.

It even goes into the Allied Races. What has the Alliance done to make Highmountain side against them? Lightforged Draenei have battled the end of all life in the universe for thousands of years and now they're happy to pick a side in some petty conflict on a single world, fought by people who are mostly as mayflies to them?  And with that Light's justice racial AoE, the Alliance is escalating the war with the use of orbit to ground weaponry. Is that really the most important thing the Army of the Light could be doing right now?

 

I guess I'll give you the elves - Alleria invented Void Elves,  and she doesn't like the Horde, while all throughout the Nightfallen quest lines, Tyrande has just been a huge jerk to those guys compared to Liadrin. It always cracks me up when I do the "Post Notices" world quest and Liadrin is like "These people must know that help is coming and that they have a future beyond the demons!" and Tyrande's text is like "The more Suramar citizens rise up and gum up the Legion's weapons, the fewer Kal'dorei will be hurt!"

And I guess Horde hates trolls slightly less than the rest of the world and Moira made the Dark Irons acceptable to the Alliance.

 

Oh well, let's decant a few thousand more Grunts and Footmen from the cloning facility to throw into the grinder to convince player characters that things are serious.

Also slightly surreal after dealing with all these legion space ships, the DH's Fel Hammer, the Vindicaar and Xenedar, and now they throw us back into the age of wooden ships and iron men or something. Just pretend we never invented metal-hulled steam powered ships back in WotLK, guys.

Fller xpac yeah,

You know, it almost looks like they're not even done developing it

And all that stuff with the horde and alliance fighting, only that in the xpac ?! it's as if they weren't telling us the whole xpac's story from beginning to end

Because it's evident they revealed the whole xpac's content in their 1-hour long conference, right ?

Keep in mind that one character doesn't speak for the entire race. The Highmountain that choose to side with the Horde are doing so because they see a bond with their own kind (Tauren) as more important than their bond with the Alliance. There are still those that want to be neutral and they will remain in Highmountain. Same goes for the Draenei etc. - Silgryn choosing to join the Horde doesn't mean he speaks for Thalyssra. She is still neutral. So is Oculeth, so is Valtrois.

      Allied Races and the Pandaren will be finally able to become Death Knights in the near future, as Blizzard added creature textures together with encrypted sound files for Bolvar Fordragon and Darion Mograine in 8.3 Build 32151.
      It seems Bolvar is going to forge a new line of Death Knights in Patch 8.3. Death Knight textures for all Allied Races (Including Lightforged Draenei) have been added to the game along with encrypted sound files for Bolvar Fordragon and Highlord Darion Mograine, who's likely going to narrate the new Death Knight intro. There's also an encrypted map of an area, which is likely the one of Icecrown Citadel.

      Datamined Pandaren Male Death Knight Texture
      It seems there's going to be a brand new Death Knight intro, but at this time, we don't know if the Allied Races are going to start at level 20 or 55 and how that's going to affect Heritage Armor acquisition.

      In this week's 8.3 Build 32151, Wrathion's Legendary Cloak has been renamed and updated to have a higher base item level.
      Experimental Blacktalon Shroud is now called Ashjra'kamas, Shrould of Resolve and the base item level is up to 445.
      The cloak's effect (Blacktalon's Experimental Protection) reduces the Sanity loss from all sources by a percentage, which is mandatory for completing Horrific Visions, as your Sanity bar depletes and the reduction allows you to stay there longer and earn better rewards. You'll upgrade the item level of the cloak with Horrific Cores up to a maximum item level of 475 at Rank 15.

      Experimental Blacktalon Shroud is a Legendary Cloak given to us by Wrathion in Patch 8.3 that can be leveled up to Rank 15, just like Heart of Azeroth using Corrupting Core and Horrific Core. 
      Patch 8.3 Build 32151 Update
      The cloak has been renamed and has a higher item level as of the latest build. You can find more information in the article linked below.

      In Horrific Visions, your goal is to kill enemies and a miniboss before your Sanity bar fully depletes.
      As previously noted, you can level up the cloak. The initial item level is 400 (Rank 1) and the effect reduces your Sanity loss from all sources by 5%. When you purchase the cloak on PTR, however, the base item level is 430, but it becomes lower when you upgrade it for the first time, which is likely a bug.

      At Rank 15, Experimental Blacktalon Shroud has an item level of 425 and the effect reduces your Sanity loss from all sources by up to 75%.

      Experimental Blacktalon Shroud gains an enhanced appearance at Rank 5 and Rank 10.

      Ahead of tomorrow's PTR testing, Blizzard deployed a new build to 8.3 PTR with fixes for the recently-previewed Alpaca mounts.
      The mounts will likely be tied to the new reputations in Visions of N'Zoth. Previously, the saddle was incorrectly placed on the model, but the issue has been fixed in 8.3 Build 32151, and here are the mounts in their full glory!
