Seething Shore Battleground in Battle for Azeroth

Recommended Posts

Seething Shore is a new battleground located off the coast of Silithus that will be previewed in Patch 7.3.5.

Seething Shore Map (Patch 7.3.5 PTR)

This is the latest map of the zone, but Blizzard previewed a different version of the map at this year's BlizzCon.

Seething Shore Zone Preview

We looked at the battleground in more detail and it looks just like the Lost Isles, but with chunks of Azerite emerging from the ground.

I feel as though a lot of the designers for those kinds of maps moved onto other things, every time I look at them and play on them you can sense that these were made by people who had designed player vs player maps for years. 

Not to say that the concepts behind each map new and old doesn't have their merits and shortfalls, but looking at this map it may look pretty but the only symmetrical field of realistic battle (the area of maps where most realistic and objective contesting would occur, many maps have a large area nowhere near anything important or to use creatively, such as Gold Mines in Arathi) that I can see is covered in water by a third. 

Water movement and pvp really don't go well for some people, especially not if any of the objectives favour something like travel form.

I can't quite remember what the vanilla design of that area was, but I know it wasn't that.  It was just a cave on the far end of the southern border, right?  Maybe it was the Emps' vacation home or something.

      It seems that Patch 8.2.5 will arrive next week to live servers, as Blizzard made the patch available for download from within the Battle.net app.
      Starting today, Patch 8.2.5 is available in the Background Downloader. We should see the patch go live next week or the week after that. In the meantime, check out the official patch notes and our hub for more details about what to expect in the latest content update.

      It's time to find out what awaits us in Patch 8.2.5 which is now available for playtesting on Public Test Realms.
      Welcome to our Patch 8.2.5 content hub. We will be frequently updating it with links to our latest news coverage.
      Patch 8.2.5 Release Date Speculuation
      You can now pre-download Patch 8.2.5 ahead of release through the Battle.net app.
      Official Patch Notes
      To learn more about what's coming in Patch 8.2.5, check out the official patch notes.
      Allied Races
      While no Allied Races have been confirmed for Patch 8.2.5, we're speculating that Blizzard is adding Mechagnomes and the Vulpera of Vol'dun this time around.
      The Future of Allied Races Vulpera Coming in Patch 8.2.5 New Goblin and Worgen Models
      Blizzard is adding new models for both races introduced back in Cataclysm. Blizzard confirmed that there will be no Heritage Armor in 8.2.5.
      Goblin and Worgen Models Preview Celebrate 15 Years of Warcraft
      November 2019 marks the 15th anniversary of World of Warcraft, and players who log in during the event period will receive a celebration package in the mail with a Lil' Nefarian pet and other in-game goodies. Throughout the duration of the event, you’ll be able to participate in three unique raids with iconic encounters from past expansions along with an old-school-inspired Alterac Valley battleground. Players who defeat all nine bosses in the raid wings will receive the Obsidian Worldbreaker, a Black Dragonflight mount inspired by Deathwing. Players who participate in Alterac Valley will receive a new anniversary event currency which can be exchanged for two new mounts: the Stormpike Battle Charger (Alliance) and the Frostwolf Snarler (Horde).
      Obsidian Worldbreaker Mount Preview Frostwolf Snarler & Stormpike Battle Charger Mount Preview 15th Anniversary Alabaster Mounts Honeyback Harvester (Bee Mount)
      Alliance players will finally be able to get their hands on the long-awaited Bee mount (Honeyback Harvester)
      Where Is My Bee Mount? New Timewalking Raid: Firelands
      When Cataclysm Timewalking is active, max-level players will be able to form raid groups and enter the Sulfuron Spire once more. As with previous Timewalking raids (Black Temple, Ulduar), your gear and power are scaled to the challenge, and all the bosses and rewards you expect lie in wait.
      Party Sync
      Blizzard is experimenting with a new mode in the forthcoming patch that makes it easier for players in a party to do quests and play together: Party Sync. When players activate Party Sync, everyone in the party becomes aligned to the same quest state, including phases. By mousing over a quest in your tracker, you can see who is on the quest, what their progress is, and who’s ready to turn in the quest. There’s something else we’re going to try out on the PTR, a “replay” quest feature. This will allow players who have already completed certain quests to replay those quests with their friends for rewards that are appropriate to their current level, regardless of the original level of the quest.
      They're also relaxing level restrictions on queueing for instanced content with your friends. This allows lower-level players to queue for content in their level range, and higher-level players can choose to join them by having their level scaled down while they’re in the instance. This feature will be available for dungeon instances for PTR Week 1, with PvP instances being flagged in the following weeks. Please note that unlike Timewalking, when your level is scaled down via Party Sync you will temporarily lose access to abilities and powers (such as Azerite traits) with requirements that exceed your reduced level.
      Party Sync Detailed Recruit A Friend Returns
      Coming in 8.2.5 is a revamped Recruit A Friend system. If you have active game time you’ll be able to recruit your friends—both brand-new to the game and returning champions—to share in your adventures. To do so, you’ll be able to use a new URL generation tool to create a custom link to give to your friends. By following the link, you’ll be connected to each other and will be able to see if they have purchased game time, resulting in rewards for you! For each month your recruits have active game time, you’ll earn a new reward such as unique pets, mounts, game time and more. These rewards unlock per month and scale with how many months your recruits have subscribed for. And, of course, with Party Sync you’ll be able to journey with your friends on any of your characters. We’ll have more information about Recruit A Friend rewards before 8.2.5 release.
      Recruit-a-Friend Mount Preview: Explorer's Dunetrekker The Story Continues...
      We datamined new models for Wrathion, Valeera, Zekhan, and Calia Menethil in 8.2.5 Build 31337. Wrathion is part of the story in the new patch and he's involved in a Karazhan Scenario and we also found a new Hearthstone Tavern in the game.

      Method and their partners in the recent Classic event have created a series of three "Replay" videos going into the origins behind the guild, organization and its founder Sco. Starting with a very Gladiator inspired intro, the first video covers Sco's start in gaming and the big risk he took moving out of the financial industry where he had a good and safe job, to focus entirely on his gaming, streaming and Method.
      Part 2 goes into how Method pushed to get the WoW PvE esports aspect popularized and the transition from guild to esports organization, featuring the first streamer signed to the new org, Djarii and GM Sco.
      The final video focuses on the Race to World First series of events and Classic specifically:
