I'm not sure about this for a variety of reasons; they sound cool, but I remember the balance of this in the already dubious world pvp environment if they continue adding pvp world quests, Cobalt Frag Grenades and other engineering items except more generic items such as gliders become more and more prohibited in casual battlegrounds and in pve it sort of opens up the way to cheese a lot more encounters that have variable mechanics such as spawned adds if you make a mistake for example if everyone is an Engineer or Tailor or whatever (not unheard of raiders to go full FOTM for something) and then we're all back to square one again where no one gets nice things.

I'm guessing with there no longer having strictly PvP realms that PvP world quests will no longer be a thing. I certainly hope that's the case.

Presumably the Ocho Hoofplates and Stirrups will be for Kul'tiras and Zandalar rather than the Broken Isles.

Thought I'd state the 'bleedin' obvious' :)

I changed from JC to Tailoring in the end of WoD, just so I could craft gear during the first month(s) of the new expansion and also because I don't have a miner. I did end up wearing a pure Crit belt I crafted a bit longer than a month, but other than that the profession has been useless to me and the additions for BfA don't really look exciting. I mean with tier sets gone it could be more useful, but they just don't seem to add new recipes in later patches any more that could keep you geared like they did in TBC, Wotlk and Cata.

Should I go back to Jewelcrafting? Any other recommendations? I guess Alchemy is always handy and Engineering looks really unique. I don't mind spending gold to level professions, I have enough of it.

I'd go back to JC. Call me psychic but I can see a lot of call for a certain little red gem.

My tailors, barring one, I haven't levelled for the same reasons you gave. When there is nothing to craft that is even at the level of drops it is a bit disheartening.

I'm very glad my JC is ready to go though.

Edit: P.S. I shall be continuing to play, I got over myself.

Huh, I didn't know that. I assume there's going to be more free for all or designated pvp areas, as well as manually flagging yourself?

Manually flagging is the thing to do with BfA which I generally approve of. It is nice to get to control when you want to fight the other faction and when you simply want to do some "chores" in peace :-)

All non-RP realms will be listed in the realm list as normal.  Each player will be able to manually flag themselves for pvp but only in rested areas (maybe only main cities, not sure though).  With the way Blizzard is sharding the servers they had said that players flagged for pvp will only see other players flagged for pvp, and those that are not flagged would only see others that are not flagged.

For what I understud, only in main cities.

And the diference with the RP realms is that in those "flagged" players are going to see  the "non-flagged" ones, but they aren't able to attack them.

On Normal realms, players with PvP on will also see players from other servers as part of sharding, but on RP realms, you should only see players from the same realm with PvP on, not from other servers from what I understood.

I know they said something about pvp only seeing pvp, but don't remember which realms they were referring to, and I think @Demenzel is right and it's only in major cities, but what I can say for sure is...

In RP realm you only see ppl in that realm, and iit doesn't matter if they are flagged for pvp or not.

In normal realms if you are flagged for pvp you won't see a non-pvp flagged player. That's bcose pvp are going to be in a diferent shard (diferents shards, bcose are going to be more than one)

So is it going to be super easy to level professions on alts so we all have a JC, Enchanter, BS, ect or is it going to be just really big cost items to make ? Also you spelled profession wrong.

It's hard to tell right now. The cap has been increased to 200 (see tooltip), but vendors still use the old system on Alpha. I'll provide more updates when they start testing professions.

      It seems we're getting a whole lot of Alterac Valley soon, as Classic is getting the 1.12 version in one of the latter content releases and we're getting the special 15th Anniversary edition on live servers in Patch 8.2.5 during the event! Today at midnight CEST there's another Play with the Blues event on the 8.2.5 PTR gathering all Valley enthusiasts and all you have to do is hop on to the PTR and use the Group Finder to jump in!

      You can get the high-rez versions of the two original mounts from the event, which you can check out here as well.
      Play with the Blues (source)
      Tomorrow 12:00 AM CEST, please join us on the 8.2.5 PTR for an old school Alterac Valley Play with the Blues.
      Starting promptly at 3:00 p.m. PDT, Blizzard employees will be testing our 15th Anniversary rendition of AV on the PTR, and you can join us for some strife in the Field of Strife.
      Please log into the PTR by that time and then open your Group Finder (default hotkey: i) and switch to the Player vs. Player tab. You’ll see Alterac Valley waiting for you to join.
      Afterward, please return to this thread with your feedback.
      Thank you!

      The news image above is fan art created by Dogslug. You can find more of his work here.
      Blizzard mentioned multiple times that they would add Allied Races whenever they fit the story. The Horde's hottest candidates are currently the Vulpera of Vol'dun, even though their story doesn't make a whole lot of sense right now. Recent rumors suggest that Gilgoblins could be in the final pair of Horde Allied Races too.
      The Vulpera currently have too many unique animations, and they are a community-favorite. Pretty much every Horde player wants them to become playable. They're coming, and it's just a matter of when. We think the first set of Allied Races will be introduced in Patch 8.2.5 with the second one coming in Patch 8.3.5. Based on datamining, the Vulpera should be live on or before September 20th. You can find all their customization options here.

      On the other side of the spectrum, the Alliance will get Mechagnomes led by Prince Erazmin of Mechagon, but it's still not clear what the second race will be.

      Lightforged Forsaken led by Calia Menethil are a possibility based on the Before the Storm novel and Calia also received a new model in the initial Patch 8.2.5 build.
      Next up are Gilgoblins! We encounter them in zones like Vashj'ir and Nazjatar in Patch 8.2. They are a species of aquatic goblins created by Hobart Grapplehammer. Gilgoblins are very similar to traditional Goblins. They have various tattoos and fins on their arms to help them swim.

      Gilgoblins are currently not included in the game files as playable races as opposed to Mechagnomes and the Vulpera. They only exist as creatures.

      The female model has more customization options compared to the male model. Would you like to see them become playable in the future?

      We know that Blizzard wants to add more customization options to World of Warcraft, and a recent leak suggests that all Allied Races will become customization options in Patch 9.0 except for the Nightborne and the Vulpera. Let's see what the first set of Allied Races is going to be now that Patch 8.2 should hit Public Test Realms reasonably soon!
      TL;DR
      The first set of Allied Races (Mechagnomes/Vulpera) coming in Patch 8.2.5 on or before September 20th. The final set of Allied Races will include Gilgoblins and Lightforged Forsaken (based on the Before the Storm novel) in Patch 8.3.5. We know that Mechagnomes and the Vulpera are coming, but what about the second set of Allied Races?

      Frozen Arathi Basin (Resource Race)
      Put away your bathing suit, pull out your parka, and enter a winter wonderland as the Arathi Basin you know and love gets a fresh coat of ice and snow. You'll be racing your way between the farm, stables, mine, lumberyard, and blacksmith through piles of snow and over a - mostly - frozen lake. One more thing: the weather forecast calls for a bit of fog of war. We hope you're prepared for the weather.

      Today's hotfixes come with a lot of nerfs to Queen Azshara. Vitality Conduit now correctly transfers health from a target with absorb shields, and more.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Dungeons and Raids
      Azshara’s Eternal Palace Queen Azshara When either Aethenel or Cyranus is slain on Normal, Heroic, or Mythic difficulty, there is now a 3-second delay before the other one gains the Torment buff. Azshara's Indomitable is now summoned 10 seconds later than previously observed on Mythic difficulty. Tidemistresses have 5% less health on Mythic difficulty. Fixed an issue where casting either Moonfire or Regrowth twice in a row while affected by Repeat Performance was not triggering the silence. Fixed a bug on Mythic difficulty where the damage effect from Deferred Sentence could trigger the healing reduction from Obey or Suffer right as the decrees transitioned between each other. Siege of Boralus  Corrected an issue where players’ pets were unable to attack the tentacles during the Viq’Goth encounter. Items
      Heart of Azeroth Vitality Conduit (Essence) correctly transfers health from a target with absorb shields on them. Learning new ranks of Conflict and Strife (Essence) should now properly grant achievements such as Power Up.

      Artifact Knowledge will continue to increase each week until the week of October 1, according to Blizzard, despite the fact that in previous Seasons, it ended around the twelve-week mark.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Is this being cut off soon? Or are you leaving it on indefinitely?
      It’s been 8 weeks now, and 8.2 kicked off with 4 weeks of AK already calculated into the game, so in theory, we’ve had 12 weeks of AK at this point. AK ended around the 12-week mark in the prior seasons.
      This is an inquiry, I’m not asking that it be cut off. I think they should leave it on, but that wouldn’t fit the prior seasons.
      No to both questions. 🙂
      As things currently stand, Artifact Knowledge will continue to increase each week until the week of October 1.
