The release date of Patch 7.3.5 is January 16 for NA & January 17 for EU. Zone scaling, Ulduar Timewalking, new story in Silithus, changes to combat resurrection mechanics in Mythic Keystone dungeons, and more content is available in Patch 7.3.5!

In addition to our coverage that can be found by visiting the Patch 7.3.5 hub, there are a few changes worth noting:

  • The patch does not contain any major class changes.
  • Combat resurrections mechanics in Mythic Keystone dungeons now function just like in raids. When you start a run, you begin with a single charge and an additional charge is accumulated every 10 minutes. All combat resurrection spells share a single pool of charges to a maximum of 5 charges.
  • Accounts protected by an Authenticator and SMS Protect gain four extra backpack slots.
  • All dungeons reward Personal Loot now.
  • The official patch notes do not take the recently announced changes to Legendary tokens in Patch 7.3.5 into account.
  • Allied Races will be available later and there's no single mention in the official patch notes about them.

World of Warcraft 7.3.5 Patch Notes

New Features

A SCALING WORLD

Every zone in Kalimdor, Eastern Kingdoms, Outland, Northrend, Pandaria, and Draenor now use the level scaling system introduced in Legion. This new scaling system greatly increases the amount of options you have when deciding where to quest and when to move on to the next zone.

All corresponding dungeons and the rewards therein now scale as well.

ULDUAR TIMEWALKING

A long-forgotten evil has awakened once more. Travel back in time with 10-30 other adventurers to cleanse Ulduar of Yogg-Saron’s evil influence. While you journey through this memorable Wrath of the Lich King raid, your character will be scaled to player level 80.

Your fate is sealed. The end of days is finally upon you and ALL who inhabit this miserable little seedling. Uulwi ifis halahs gag erh'ongg w'ssh.

SILITHUS: THE WOUND

Players who have completed Antorus, The Burning Throne will be summoned to your capital cities, from which you’ll travel to Silithus to investigate the strange events surrounding the impact of Sargeras’ blade. Look for this new questline upon logging in.

NEW BATTLEGROUND: SEETHING SHORE

The Alliance and the Horde fight over a precious new resource, Azerite, in this new 10v10 battleground. Seething Shore is a king of the hillbattleground where the first faction to collect ten pieces of Azerite from randomly spawned nodes, wins.

The Seething Shore will become available as the story in Silithus unfolds.

Updated Features

LEGENDARY ITEMS

Arcanomancer Vridiel’s hard work has paid off, and he now offers a token that transforms into a random Legion legendary for your specialization, for 1,000 Wakening Essences. You can also continue to come to Vridiel to upgrade the Legion legendary items you already have for the same cost of 300 Wakening Essences.

MYTHIC KEYSTONE DUNGEONS

Combat resurrections mechanics in Mythic Keystone dungeons now closely mirror how they function in a raid encounter. When you start a Mythic Keystone dungeon, you will begin with one charge, and accumulate additional charges every 10 minutes. All combat resurrection spells now share a single pool of charges to a maximum of 5 charges.

HOLIDAYS

Holiday dungeons are now available to all players starting at level 20. Items that drop from these dungeons will scale to your current level. In addition, keep an eye out for new items in many upcoming holidays, such as new Lunar Festival hats and a sturdier Sturdy Love Fool.

S.E.L.F.I.E

Self-oriented photographers rejoice! Your S.E.L.F.I.E. CameraS.E.L.F.I.E. Camera is now easier to obtain, and it has new background filters. Selfie Cam Mark I is available at level 15 in Stormwind or Orgrimmar via a quest, and you can upgrade to the Mark II Selfie Cam after completing a new level 30 group quest.

We’ve also added the following backgrounds, but you’ll have to figure out how to unlock them.

  • Argus in the Sky
  • Twilight Sky
  • Sha Sky
  • Firelands Sky
  • Frostmourne Sky

Changes

    • The new Glory of the Ulduar RaiderGlory of the Ulduar Raider Achievement should now award both the Reins of the Rusted Proto-DrakeReins of the Rusted Proto-Drake and the Reins of the Ironbound Proto-DrakeReins of the Ironbound Proto-Drake mounts.

So, for clarity since backpack slot can be read two ways ...

Does this mean the base 16 slot bag becomes 20 slot?

Or does this mean we get 9 total bag slots now?

I figure the first option, but wanted to ask.

So happy. I have hated these toys forever. I know some people liked them, but I never liked the idea of my character forced into an action without my input. I hope this also applies to the moonkin statues. That I could run away from them, click off the buff, and see it re-apply itself repeatedly was beyond frustrating.

bullcrap that we have to go do a raid to unlock the new quests!  believe it or not there are players that don't do raids! I hope these quests are not requirements for doing anything in the new patch and instead are just bonus storyline that's not required for anything!

i do believe the final wing of lfr releases this week as well, and I'm sure LFR is sufficient to start the quest line.

As far as I am concerned, they have decided to ignore solo players. All the stuff that I have hated in Legion: Raids, zone scaling, etc. all vacuum for the solo player.  I guess that it is time to drop out and save 16 bucks a month.

Spoiler

It's been data mined that BfA is required for Allied Races so it will be awhile before we get them.

Fixed an issue that caused Alliance players who had completed The Pride of Kul Tiras to be unable to access Siege of Boralus. Fixed an issue that caused Horde players who hadn’t completed Zandalar Forever to be able to access Kings’ Rest. Clarified the error messages shown when attempting to zone in to Kings’ Rest or Siege of Boralus without meeting the requirements.

      After he took down the full VoD and clips of his leveling experience due to racist remarks that popped up on screen from donors, Gingi has compiled a video with just the highlights from his World First run to level 120, that took him 4 hours and 17 minutes. Warning: there's a LOT of sped up footage in there so beware!
    • By Starym
      Update: Gingi has removed the VoD of the leveling experience due to some problematic content in the video, but will be posting an edited version of the entire leveling experience to youtube soon. Here's his tweet on the subject and you can still watch the whole experience through Deepshades',and Meeres' PoVs.
      ________________________________________________________________
      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:

      The class trials have dinged with Battle for Azeroth and we now get to try out level 110 characters before choosing what class to play! Blizzard have put together an intro for trials, including a video detailing the process, from the tutorial, to the Battle for Lordaeron, getting the Heart of Azeroth neck and playing the Horde or Alliance intros for the expansion! That's a lot of content to test your class in so it should be easier than ever to decide just what to play!

      And, after you're done with the trials and have decided what your class is, you can always head on over to our class and leveling guides to further learn how to optimize your spec!
      Class Trials (source)
      With the launch of World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth, we’ve updated Class Trials for level-110 characters. Now you can try a class in the expansion before you boost!
      On the character-creation screen, players who have the World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth expansion can now create and play a level-110 “Class Trial” character with a preset class specialization. You’ll take this character through a tutorial experience and get a chance to play through the Siege of Lordaeron event, gain your new Artifact neck piece—the Heart of Azeroth—from Speaker Magni, and experience the introductions to Kul Tiras for Alliance characters or Zandalar for Horde characters. After that, if you’d like to play the class further, just apply a level-110 character boost to continue your adventure.
       
      Getting Started
      Whether you’re Horde or Alliance, you’ll begin your new adventure on a gunship high above Seething Shore. Your new trainer will guide you along the way as you become familiar with your new class, providing you with opportunities to practice against several enemies.
       
      Basic Training
      Once the experience has been completed—or at any time during the Class Trial—simply apply a level-110 character boost* to continue your journey in Battle for Azeroth. If you’re undecided, you can also keep the character around and apply a boost later, or delete it if you want to make room to try another class. Please note that if a character completes the Class Trial experience but is not boosted, it will be locked and unavailable for play until a boost is applied.
      While there is a limit on the time you’ll have to play through the Class Trial, you can log out of the character and continue the experience later with the time you had remaining. You’ll also be able to try multiple classes, and won’t be locked into only one Class Trial.
      Whether you’re already one of Azeroth’s protectors, returning for the new expansion, or a new player joining friends, the Class Trial experience provides an opportunity for Battle for Azeroth players to find the character that’s right for them.
      What are you waiting for? Take the plunge into the latest adventures in Azeroth!
       
      *One level-110 boost is included with Battle for Azeroth, and additional character boosts can be purchased in the Shop.
