More Backpack Space in the Battle for Azeroth Expansion

6 posts in this topic

Blizzard wants to encourage the use of Authenticators and once you attach one to your Battle.net account, the default backpack space will be slightly increased.

A really interesting question got answered in yesterday's Q/A, where Blizzard told us their plans to slightly increase backpack size to incentivize the Authenticator.

Blizzard Authenticator is used as an additional layer of security for your account. When you log in to your account, an authentication request is sent to the mobile app. You can choose to enter a code at every login and Blizzard recommends using the service together with SMS Protect, so that you have no issues removing an authenticator using text message verification.

From personal experience, removing an Authenticator was burdensome in the past, especially when you reinstalled the app and the account got stuck with the old validation token. When contacting Customer Support to have the Authenticator removed, you need to provide additional details, like CD-Keys. Thanks to SMS Protect you can avoid all the nuisances.

TL;DR

  • Once you attach the Blizzard Authenticator to your account in the future, the default backpack size will slightly increase.

While not stated (unless I missed it), is it assumed that if you already have an authenticator active you'll get the increased bag size?

I think so. It should increase by default when this feature goes live.

If not, it's pretty easy to re-attach a mobile one at least.

      Here's our preview of Kul Tirans including customization options, available classes, and Druid forms!
      Welcome to our preview of Kul Tirans. The Alliance will get access to the Allied Race later in Battle for Azeroth.
      Table of Contents 
      Unlock Requirements Playable Classes Druid Forms Racials Racial Mount Heritage Armor Customization Options (Female) Customization Options (Male) Unlock Requirements (Speculation) 
      We don't know at this time how to unlock Kul Tirans, but based on requirements of previous Allied Races, it's safe to assume that it's going to be related to new content, Kul Tourist, maybe?
      Playable Classes 
      Only Druids have been confirmed as a playable race so far and Kul Tiran Humans have really cool Druid forms!
      Druid Druid Forms 
      All Kul Tiran Human Druid forms have been added to the game, only Moonkin Form is missing.
      Aquatic Form (Brown)

      Racial Mount (Speculation) 
      No official racial mount has been announced just yet, but Kul Tiran Druid forms revolve around the "wicker" theme, so the racial mount may very well be a wickerbeast?

      We have another interesting interview with Principal Exterior Level Designer Gary Platner and In-game Cinematic Project Director Terran Gregory by VG247. Check out the highlights!
      Check out the full interview over at VG247.
      Interview Highlights
      Alex Afrasiabi designed Battle for Azeroth like it would be the last expansion. Terran is really sad that gnomes didn't make an appearance in the cinematics, but CGI has its limitations to how many characters can be created. Siege of Lordaeron included more characters than any other Blizzard CGI film before. It's Blizzard's mission to tell the most compelling and emotional story that they can. Making everyone enjoy the story in the same way is an impossible goal. With the release of Warbringers: Sylvanas, Horde players started to show their discontent. There's even been one extreme case of targeted harassment aimed at Christie Golden. Creating a story that revolves around an all-out war required bold decisions. They knew the reactions to the burning of Teldrassil would be passionate, but they did exceed their expectations. Storytelling is about highs and lows. Old Soldier would not have resonated so well without Warbringers: Sylvanas. WoW is a living, breathing game. The team's always looking for ways to improve it. They'll support WoW for as long as the players continue to give them support. From a story perspective, they wondered how great an end WoW would need to have. It's an evergreen franchise that they've maintained like a "carefully-tended bonsai tree."

      New cinematics have appeared as players reached level 120 on live servers.
      The following article contains major lore spoilers!
      Credit to MMO-Spoilers for the videos.
      Yesterday, we looked at the Horde intro to Zandalar, Jaina's nightmare and her arrival to Kul Tiras. Check out the cinematics here if you missed them.
      Jaina's Visions & Reunion
      Katherine sees Jaina relive painful memories. These include memories of Arthas, her father Daelin, Rhonin, and Varian. Mother and daughter are reunited at the end of the video.
      Bwonsamdi Cinematic
      King Rastakhan lost a mighty source of power after Prophet Zul killed Rezan. He enters a desperate pact with Bwonsamdi, the Loa of Death, to aid him in the battle ahead, but at what price...?
      Zandalar Forever Cinematic
      Here's the final cinematic that plays after you complete the Zandalar Forever scenario. Zul orders Mythrax to shatter the final seal and free G'huun just before Rastakhan kills him. Both Mythrax and Zul will be bosses in Battle for Azeroth's Uldir raid.
      It's needless to say that Blizzard have outdone themselves with the Jaina cinematics. The Horde cinematics aren't bad too, but the strong Black Panther vibe makes them somewhat ridiculous. Do you agree?

      Well, this was quite insane. It seems Method's Gingi decided to one-up his fellow teammate Fragnance, who got the WF level 110 in Legion in 5 and a half hours. Well, it took Gingi, or rather Luigingi, 4 hours and 17 or so minutes to finish up Battle for Azeroth's leveling, in a team of three, along with Method's Meeres and Deepshades, using his boomkin:

      If you want to see how exactly he did it, you can check out his full leveling video, but it seems they just went for really REALLY fast questing (obviously tested on beta) with no special shenanigans involved (at least that I could find at first glance):

      Method's Gingi dinged 120 in 4 hours 17 minutes!

      Obviously, Deepshades and Meeres dinged very quickly after Gingi, and here are their full streams of the leveling process as well, linked to the final minute - Deepshades, Meeres.
      And some thanks from the WF Gingi himself:
