9 posts in this topic

VAvY1Kd.jpg

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 :-)

      With the big Season 2 update coming next week, we're getting previews for all the big updates to the main features and today Blizzard are taking a look at PvP. From Conquest reward updates and schedule (featuring weeks, item levels and gear) to ranked rewards, a change to the Gladiator title and a lot more.

      You can also check out the broader Season 2 changes coming to the game as previewed by Game Director Ion Hazzikostas, or one of our own previews for the new allied races, their druid forms, totems, the new raiding with leashes, profession changes and more.
      BfA PvP Season 2 (source)
      Battle for Azeroth PvP Season 2 goes live Tuesday, January 23, and with it come a few system changes and updated Conquest rewards.
      Conquest Reward Updates
      With PvP Season 2, we’ve fine-tuned the Conquest reward schedule to provide players with more variety and flexibility to get the kind of gear they’re looking for.
      Players who earn 500 Conquest points in a given week will receive one Quartermaster’s Coin and a piece of gear from that week’s selection. Players might also earn an additional piece of gear or Quartermaster’s Coin each week by using a weekly bonus roll token in PvP. 10 Quartermaster’s Coins can be exchanged for a Warlord’s Trophy, which players can use to upgrade a piece of Sinister Gladiator’s gear to a higher item level (based on their current Rated PvP bracket).
      Alliance PvP Season 2 Armor During weeks when the Conquest reward is a head, shoulder, or chest item, players can choose from one of four different pieces of Azerite gear. For the weeks when the Conquest reward is not an Azerite piece, trinket, or weapon, players will be able to choose gear from one of two different slots such as legs and wrists, hands and back, or finger and feet.

      Ranked PvP Rewards
      We’ve also updated the naming conventions for the brackets. Now when players reach a 2400 rating in any bracket (2v2, 3v3, or 10v10 Rated Battlegrounds), they will be moved into the Elite bracket. Like other brackets, players will immediately be granted an achievement and title when reaching the bracket. Elite titles are class-specific, and players will receive a unique tabard for their collection.

      PvP Season 2 Alliance and Horde Mounts Season 2 Mounts
      During Battle for Azeroth Season 2, players can work toward claiming the Vicious Black Bonesteed or Vicious Black Warsaber. Once earned, players can fill the bar again to receive a Vicious Saddle, allowing them to purchase a mount from previous seasons.
      Keep an eye on the Player vs. Player Leaderboards during the season to follow who’s making waves at the top.

      New Profession quests called Tools of the Trade are coming in Patch 8.1.5. They were first shown off at last year's BlizzCon and some of the items have been added to the game in the initial 8.1.5 build.
      Tools of the Trade questlines provide players with powerful perks. While they haven't been enabled on PTR for playtesting yet, BlizzCon 2018 shed some light on the various items that players will be able to acquire in the upcoming content update. For example, Jewelcrafters will be able to remove an embedded gem from one of their socketed items and Blacksmiths will gain the ability to repair a piece of their equipment instantly, on a 1 hour cooldown, thanks to the Khaz'gorian Hammer.
      The following Tools of the Trade items have been unveiled so far:
      Alchemy
