A word of warning! The store is completely overloaded right now and there's all sorts of issues - people getting billed and not upgrading and things like that. Might be best to wait a while for things to steady out.

But your name... :-)

I am kind of hyped but I would not need that to say: Hell yeah, give me that early access to stuff :-)

Replacing my Mage with a Nightborne is gonna give me something to do, otherwise I would have most likely cancelled my subsricption in a few weeks.

I don't get what you think is so wrong with offering something in advance to its release. Pre ordering and pre purchasing things is almost as old as commerce itself :-)

Pretty sure it's not as faction war based as everyone thinks it is.  Yes the Horde and Alliance are going their separate ways moreso than previous expansions, but I'm pretty sure Battle for Azeroth isn't about the faction war, pretty sure it's about the way to save the nascent titansoul azeroth that Sargeras plunged his sword into.  I don't think it's the BATTLE for Azeroth, but more the Battle FOR AZEROTH.

As excited as I am that pre-orders are available...  I always end up waiting for the retail version to come out.   I really do wish they'd let us folks that prefer the retail versions pre-order as well.

As opposed to any other time we play an expansion? Lich King was a threat to Azeroth, Deathwing was a threat to Azeroth... you could keep naming them for days.

 

Just because it's a "Oh it's a titansoul!" doesn't change a thing. You lose it, you lose the way you live. One way or another it's about total extinction or subversion.

 

I mean, we've been "BATTLING FOR AZEROTH" since Warcraft 1.

Honestly, it seems pretty obvious that it's going to shift. Like it's going to start out horde vs alliance, then SUDDENLY out of no where, things are gonna start happening and we have to fight some big bad. It happens all the time, and we KNOW Azshara is gonna make an appearance already anyways.

It wouldn't be all that surprising if it went something like: Horde vs Alliance fighting > Azshara shows up > Fight Azshara > Leads the way to some old god stuff > Fight old gods and forget about dispute until next xpac

But nothing for Diablo 3?

I suppose the few people who still "develope" that game has no time beside start the new season to make some goodies for a game which have the lowest player base. Actually almost dead, right now 2(lul) people doing GR on Europe server, the game's endgame content, so.. still shame to leave that franchise like was on Blizzcon.

What is this heritage armor they were talking about in regards to the new races?

Somewhere they said that you will only unlock it when you level tose new races without a boost. What exactly is that armor? Is it even worth the effort? :D

And does anybode know wether they increase the max chars per server slots alongside with the new races? Because if not i would have to delete one of my toons which is a no go!

you get four new slots in each server coming up so no deleting of toons necessary

as far as heritage armor goes, they are trying to bring more identity and class fantasy to characters as well as making armor appearances more meaningful. So, with each new race you have heritage armor or the clothes they would be wearing naturally, almost view it as "the npc set". So when you run around high mountain you see the tauren in native american themed armor right? well with each new race when you get them to max lvl from o you earn your heritage armor set ie the set your character would have worn had they not joined horde/alliance and jsut stayed home. this is meant to give them more identity.

the appeal to this (or at least what they hope) is that your character can wear this armor set regardless of their class. so dark iron dwarves are all hardcore plate wearers, well with the heritage set being plate you could be a priest or a mage and wear your plate gear heritage set even though traditionally you can only wear cloth.

so its meant to try and give your character identity and build fantasy, because up until now aside from racial bonuses which race you chose didn't really mean anything or matter, aside from gob, worg, and panda your starter area was very minimal. so they are trying to make you feel that you aren't just a death knight or a warrior you are now a high mountain hunter or a lightforget dranei pally. 

tldr trying to make things fun and give meaning to stuff that lost meaning

      This week's bonus event revolves around world quests making it the ideal time to farm reputation and unlocking Allied Races.
      The Sign of the Emissary buff increases the amount of reputation gained from World Quests by 50%, and all Allied Races require exalted with their respective factions to become unlocked. Completing 20 world quests rewards 1,000 War Resources. Check out our Mechagnomes and Vulpera guides to learn more about how to unlock the latest Allied Races.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Chart a course across Kul Tiras and Zandalar for this week’s Bonus Event – World Quests.
      THIS WEEK
      All week, open your map (default hotkey-"m") and select any of the Kul Tiras or Zandalar regions to view the World Quests available to you. To find out more about each World quest, simply hover your mouse over a World Quest on the map to see what tasks are needed to complete it, the rewards you’ll receive, and the time remaining that the quest is available to you.
      Look for the following all week long:
      Chronicler Toopa in Boralus or Chronicler Shoopa in Zuldazar has a quest for you—The World Awaits. You can also start the quest from within the Adventure Guide (Shift-J). Quest requirement: Complete 20 World Quests in Kul Tiras, Zandalar, Mechagon, or Nazjatar Reward: 1,000 War Resources Passive buff: +50% to Reputation gains from World Quests If you’ve been looking to impress some emissaries, this is the week to do it!
      EVERY WEEK
      The Bonus Events system consists of a rotating schedule of different activities, currently scheduled to run each week beginning on Tuesdays. Each Bonus Event grants a passive bonus to a particular game activity and offers a once-per-event quest with a noteworthy reward for accomplishing a related goal. The in-game calendar can serve as your one-stop reference for the event schedule. The Adventure Guide also offers a direct link to active Bonus Events, allowing you to easily accept any associated quests.

      If you're making use of the XP buff leveling new characters and you're tired of the Warlords of Draenor intro questline, which involves Khadgar, there's a workaround at level 90 to skip it and here's how.
      Note that the Warlords of Draenor intro rewards a fair amount of XP these days, and you are sacrificing it to save time with the skip.
      At level 90, you must head to Khadgar and complete the intro prologue to Draenor. While the intro gives you a fair amount of Experience with the double XP buff, chances are you could have grown tired of completing it over and over on multiple characters.
      We recommend using the skip ideally if you have:
      Unlocked Draenor Pathfinder (flying in Draenor), because you will end up in Gorgrond and it will take you some time to head back to your Garrison to start questing; Inflatable Mount Shoes on a mount for water walking in case you have no flying unlocked, which makes it less painful reaching locations and unlocking your Garrison. At level 90, take the portal from Stormwind/Orgrimmar to Jade Forest and head to the Timeless Isle in Pandaria (see map below for exact location). There, you will find an underwater cave with chairs. Sit on them and click the campfire to teleport to Gorgrond.

      From there, you can head to Iron Docks if you have a flying mount, and the flight master will take you to your Garrison even though they (the flight masters) aren't marked on the map.

      We have some more art-related content, but this time around it's not just fans painting their favorite characters, but actually transforming WoW into a painting - and without using any mod! Now, there's plenty of mods already out there that you can use to change the game's aesthetics, but with Blizzard's recent tightening of EULA enforcement, it could possibly be risky using some of them (although they've been mostly safe to use so far).
      This one requires an Nvdia card and is much, much easier than putting a mod in, you just need the Geforce app and to click a few things, and your game could be looking like this (just click on the image and the video will play):
      As noted by the poster, kathrad_, this also messes with the UI, so you're either going to have to just use it to marvel at the visuals around the world, or be really good with your spec rotation, as you won't really be seeing much of the UI. Also, perhaps don't go raiding or doing high M+ keys, as ground effects and similar probably won't be as noticeable.
      Interestingly, there are plenty of people in the reddit thread that actually didn't note the difference in the look of the game, saying that the above just looks like regular Darnassus! I guess it's been on fire for so long people have a very painterly memory of the once Night Elf capital.
      If you have some great mods that alter the game's look, share em below and let's see just how much WoW can be changed.

      While it's no surprise many game developers and producers spent time playing WoW, hearing that Valve co-founder and internet santa Gabe Newell actually spent time intensively farming gold in it is slightly more surprising. While talking to Edge magazine (issue 344) he mentioned how, while doing research on games as productivity platforms, he decided to farm gold in World of Warcraft to see if it was worth it.
      And he turned out to be pretty good at it, as his efforts started netting him around $20 per hour, which in turn proved to him that the concept was sound and that realization lead to the addition of the Steam Workshop, where Steam users could create their own content for the games they were playing, starting with the now legendary Team Fortress 2 hats, and peaking with the insane prices for certain CS: GO skins.

      This particular skin went for over $60,000, with a signature
      of a pro player, and it's "only" worth $20,000 without it.
      And so, without the monotony of gold farming, we may not have gotten the Steam Workshop, so the next time you're feeling annoyed at having to grind that 5 mil for the Brutosaur, just think of all the things we wouldn't have had if items in WoW were cheaper!
