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 :-)

      We've joined forces with exceL Esports to support their first WoW team!
      With the MDI All-Stars event at Blizzcon just around the corner, we felt this was the perfect time to announce our partnership with exceL Esports and their Mythic+ team, exceL's Angels, the 2018 MDI winners!
      exceL Esports has been a core part of the scene built around multiple games since 2014, fielding teams in League of Legends, Street Fighter V, and more. With the presence of their organisation continuing to grow, exceL picked up Kjell's Angels after they won the MDI back in June, making their first move into the World of Warcraft competitive scene. 
      The Managing Director of exceL Esports, Kieran Holmes-Darby, had this to say on the partnership, as well as the first goal for exceL's Angels:
      Below, you can find the announcement video that exceL posted to their YouTube channel:
      At the time of their acquisition and still to this day, the Mythic+ team consists of Divinefield, Cirra, Ashine, Dorullkjell and Herudra. With their stellar performance that led them to a win at the last event, we felt that the Angels would be a perfect match to bring new content to Icy Veins, in the form of Mythic+ guides.
      Their strategies are no doubt effective and, after being tested at the top Mythic+ stage this Blizzcon, we will be working with the team to translate their efficiency and precision into guides that can help players of all levels to complete their Mythic+ dungeons and push to achieve the highest keys possible for their group.
      In the run-up to the event in November, you can stay up-to-date on all things exceL by following them on their social media accounts, all of which are linked below:
      Twitter / Facebook / Instagram / YouTube / Twitch / Website
      Alongisde Icy Veins, exceL has also formed a partnership for their WoW team with Enthusiast Gaming, one of the top events, content and advertising companies in the gaming industry and the company behind the largest games expo in Canada, the Enthusiast Gaming Live Expo. You can find out more about them at their website link below or on any of their social media accounts.
      Website / Twitter / Facebook / Instagram / YouTube
      You can also keep on top of everything Angels-related by checking out the players themselves on Twitter and Twitch:
      Divinefield (Tank): Twitch / Twitter
      Cirra (Healer): Twitch / Twitter
      Ashine (DPS): Twitch / Twitter
      Herudra (DPS): Twitch / Twitter
      Dorullkjell (DPS): Twitch / Twitter
      Looking to the future, we hope that you will all join us in cheering for exceL's Angels at the All-Stars event next month and cannot wait to showcase the new guides we will be working on together!

      Toad mounts are finally coming in Tides of Vengeance, as Blizzard added two tints in the latest 8.1 PTR build. At this time, it's hard to tell the exact source of both mounts, but they could come from Glory of the Battle of Dazar'alor Raider or reputation paragon caches.

      Blizzard agrees that earning Azerite Armor in Mythic+ feels overly based on luck and in Tides of Vengeance, players will have more control over the Azerite gear they earn through Mythic+.
      Blizzard is adding a new currency in Patch 8.1, which you'll earn from your weekly Mythic+ chest and from scrapping and disenchanting epic-quality Azerite Armor. The weekly chest will no longer reward Azerite Armor. Thaumaturge Vashreen will be selling caches that reward a random dungeon Azerite Armor piece for a given slot that will be separated by item level.
      To give players even more control over Azerite Armor, Vashreen will also offer ilvl 385 versions of the specific dungeon Azerite Armor pieces for each class, sold at premium.
      Only Azerite Armor scrapped in 8.1 will yield the new currency. Vashreen's wares will increase accordingly when the second Mythic+ season starts.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Couple quick clarifications based on feedback so far: Only Azerite Armor that drops after Tides of Vengeance is released will scrap/disenchant into the new currency. Don't worry about hoarding the Azerite pieces you're earning now. When the next Mythic+ season starts, and item levels increase, the item levels of Thaumaturge Vashreen's wares will increase accordingly. We recognize that PvPers want more options and choice too. We're talking about that separately. Check out our Tides of Vengeance content hub for the latest Patch 8.1 information.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Throughout the discussions regarding Azerite Armor, there’s been a lot of talk about how you earn Azerite pieces from Mythic+ dungeons. Players have told us – and we agree – that the process of earning Azerite Armor through Mythic+ feels overly based on luck, and that there isn’t enough control in the players’ hands. Even with our bad luck protection systems in place, the sheer number of potential Azerite pieces you can get from the weekly chest means that trying to get ahold of a specific piece feels hopeless. That’s a problem we want to solve, and give you some control over the Azerite gear you earn through Mythic+. So here’s what we’re working on for Tides of Vengeance:
      First, we’re adding a new (as yet unnamed) currency, which you’ll earn from your weekly Mythic+ chest as well as from scrapping (or disenchanting) epic-quality Azerite Armor. This currency is rewarded in addition to the item in the chest (which can no longer be an Azerite piece), and the amount you earn will scale up exponentially based on the highest level Keystone you’ve completed. For example, completing a level 10 Keystone will reward you with about three times as much as clearing a level 7. Similarly, scrapping higher-item-level Azerite pieces will give you significantly higher amounts of this currency than lower-level pieces.

      To spend that currency, we’re bringing back an old friend: Thaumaturge Vashreen. He’ll have two main types of items for sale. The first are caches that reward a random dungeon Azerite Armor piece for a given slot (helm, shoulders, or chest). They’ll be separated out by item level as well (at 355, 370, and 385), with higher item level caches requiring significantly more currency to purchase. But we recognize that with six or more options per slot, this may still not be enough control for high-end players who want to be able to work towards a specific piece that perfectly complements their build. Thus, Vashreen will also offer Item Level 385 versions of the specific dungeon Azerite Armor pieces for each class, sold at a premium.
      We’re still nailing down the exact numbers, but our goal for tuning this new currency is that you’ll be able to purchase one of the Azerite caches that lines up roughly with the item level of the gear you’re getting from your Mythic+ runs every two or three weeks, with the specific 385 pieces as long-term goals for top players.
      Overall, we believe that this change will improve things in a lot of different ways:
      Mythic+ players of all skill levels will now have a clear path to upgrading their Azerite slots High-end Mythic+ players will have a way to target specific Azerite pieces to optimize their setups Duplicate or unwanted Azerite pieces from other sources (such as raiding) now have some additional value The piece of gear in your weekly chest will have a more reliable item level You should see all of this hitting the Tides of Vengeance PTR sometime in the next week or so. We really do appreciate your feedback, and believe that this, in addition to the new traits and other improvements coming to the Azerite system in Tides of Vengeance, will help ease a lot of the concerns about Azerite Armor in Mythic+ and as a whole.
