The release date of Patch 7.3.5 draws close and our content hub contains all necessary information to guide you through it.

Patch 7.3.5 is Legion's last content patch. The most prominent features are world scaling, Ulduar Timewalking and the Seething Shore battleground.

Update: (February 14)

The Remote Auction House is once again accessible! Season 2 of MDI starts with Proving Grounds on February 27 and players can enter Ulduar during Wrath Timewalking this week.

Battle for Azeroth Alpha is now live and below are links to our latest news coverage. 

Update: (February 5)

Battle for Azeroth is now available for pre-purchase. We posted Profession Changes in BfA and preliminary Class changes. You can find the latest hotfixes that have been deployed to live realms here. Additional Class tuning is planned tomorrow (February 6) after maintenance. Don't forget to make use of the +10% XP & reputation buff during Darkmoon Faire through February 10.

Update: (January 25)

In the last couple of days, Blizzard released three rounds of hotfixes: January 22, January 23, January 24. We also learned more about class design philosophy in Battle for Azeroth. A live developer Q/A with Game Director Ion Hazzikostas is scheduled for January 30.

Update: (January 18)

We have a round of new dev tweets with information about bugs in Patch 7.3.5 that continue to pop up on live realms. An extended eight hour maintenance is planned for all regions. You can find more details here.

Update: (January 17)

Hotfixes for January 17 are out!

Patch 7.3.5 is now live in all regions and the first bugs started to emerge. World scaling crippled soloing old content and Blizzard is currently working to fix the issue. We also reported about Orb of DeceptionOrb of Deception transforming Pandaren into Allied Races characters. At this time we don't know if that's intended, but expect a round of hotfixes soon! We also compiled a list of undocumented changes in 7.3.5 that can be found below.

Allied Races

Patch 7.3.5 contains files for Allied Races, giving Blizzard the opportunity to enable them at any time after the patch goes live. During PTR testing, we looked at unlock requirements, special Heritage Armor, racials, tabards, and unlock scenarios. Four Allied Races will be available before Battle for Azeroth launches. Dark Iron Dwarves and Zandalari Trolls are gated behind the new expansion's campaign. We still have no information about their class options, but in a Q/A, Blizzard mentioned they are exploring the option to allow Dark Iron Dwarves to be Death Knights and Zandalari Trolls will be able to roll Druids.

Unlock Requirements

You must purchase Battle for Azeroth and have an existing character of at least level 110 on the destination realm of your Allied Race character. Allied Races are also gated behind reputation and various achievements. All requirements are account-wide.

I do believe the requirements are account bound so if you have all the various rep requirements on a horde character you can make the alliance ones no problem

I always wanted to level an alliance alt though and visit the exclusive leveling areas and quest lines :-) I really hope that the reputation requirements will be account wide. I am not the biggest fan of grinding :-)

      And we now have the very first official hotfixes of the pre-expansion patch! We have a bunch of class fixes for various abilities that were either bugged or incorrectly converted, fixes for legacy content and Tomb of Sargeras bosses, as well as other stat squish issues in the open world, and finally, a whole lot of quest items that can again be looted and other quest fixes.

    • By Starym
      It seems 8.0.1 is one of the more unstable patches launched, as in addition to the significant server problems that plagued the US and OC launches there are also many more issues that still linger. After the known issues posted yesterday we have yet more getting addressed by Blizzard, but this time with some solutions as well.

      First off we have several suggestions on how to fix lost Mage Tower artifact appearances, as well as clarifications on the overall artifact transmogging system:
      Mage Tower Appearances (source)
      Before a hotfix that we made to the game on Tuesday, July 17 at 3:30 p.m. PDT, some players in the Americas, Australia, and New Zealand may have found that the Mage Tower Artifact appearance they thought they earned had gone missing. We have some suggestions for you, if you believe this to be the case.
      Check your quest logs.
      If you have either the scenario quest completed, or you’re on the final quest to return to Dalaran and talk to the Council of Six, you should be able to go turn it in and obtain the appearance.
      Go to The Violet Citadel.
      It’s possible that one of the Council of Six has the final mage tower quest available for you. Go to Dalaran, accept the quest, stand in the circle and have your weapon upgraded, and then complete the quest. This should award the appearance.
      We apologize for the confusion. Thank you very much!
       
      Artifact transmog (source)
      Since the Pre-Patch went live yesterday, we’ve seen some questions and concerns from players on several transmogrification issues. We’d like to elaborate on some details about how the system works:
      Transmogging an Artifact to look like a non-Artifact from your weapon appearances collection should work as it did before.
      You can now have a transmogrify vendor put an earned Artifact appearance on appropriate non-Artifact weapons belonging to characters who are of the same class and specialization as the character who earned the appearance.
      However, if you wish to apply an Artifact appearance to an Artifact, you must visit the Artifact Forge in your Class Hall, and your character is restricted to appearances that were earned on that character.
      Artifact appearances that come in pairs (main-hand + off-hand) cannot be separated when you’re using two items. If you apply the appearance of one of these to your main-hand item, your off-hand item will use the appearance of the other, and vice versa.
      Artifact appearances that come in pairs *can* be applied to two-hand weapons. A Shadow Priest can now make a staff look like Xal’atath, Blade of the Black Empire.
      Some Artifact appearances are so awesome that they can bypass restrictions on some weapon types. However, even though some restrictions have been lifted, other weapon restrictions remain. It is not intended that a melee weapon can be made to look like an Artifact bow or gun. Likewise, you can't make a bow/gun/wand look like an Artifact melee weapon.
      When doing transmogrification, you can select a slot to alter in the character pane on the left of the window, and then *right-click* on an appearance in the right pane of the window and use “transmogrify as”. This is especially useful when you visit the transmogrifier as a Feral or Guardian Druid.
      Thank you very much. We’ll continue to keep an eye on all of your questions and feedback!
      We then also have another list of common issues, some with explanations and solutions:
      List of common issues (source)
      GAMEPLAY: DIDN'T RECEIVE EXPECTED LOOT IN MYTHIC CACHE Known issue: Due to changes to the Mythic+ system in Battle for Azeroth, players will not receive their normal Mythic Cache loot and keystone this week. As this was unintended, we will be providing 1000 Wakening Essence as well as a Level 2 Keystone in the Mythic Cache for those who qualified for loot in the previous week. Our sincerest apologies for the inconvenience!
      ELOTHIR DOESN'T SHOW UP FOR VARIOUS QUESTS Known issue: The Ancient Elothir does not spawn as required for a variety of quests, preventing players from completing the zone. We are looking to fix this issue as soon as possible.
      FULLSCREEN MODE UNAVAILABLE Not a bug: For compatibility reasons, the option to play in fullscreen has been removed from the game. Players may choose between playing in either windowed or fullscreen (windowed) mode.
      UNABLE TO CLAIM GIFTED BATTLE FOR AZEROTH KEY Under investigation: We have received reports that some players are unable to claim a gifted expansion. An investigation has been launched.
      MISSING EXTRA BAG SLOTS Under investigation: Some players that have both the Authenticator and SMS Protect enabled have reported missing the four extra bag slots. We are currently attempting to verify this issue.

      No more Battle Chests or purchasing previous expansions, all you need is an active subscription!
      Well, no one has to to buy base WoW anymore, ever! Everything you need to do to play up until the upcoming expansion, Battle for Azeroth, is an active subscription. No more battle chests and individual purchases, just pay that monthly fee and access the entire game as it is at the moment, with nothing missing until August 14th, when you'll have to buy BfA for the new content. Additional digital deluxe items from each expansion are available at the Blizzard shop individually, but it's now easier than ever to jump into the game and just start playing.
      Recruit a Friend has also been updated:
