Recommended Posts

Strand of the Ancients Battleground will be removed in Battle for Azeroth. Alterac Valley and Isle of Conquest will be moved to a separate queue and the option to blacklist Battlegrounds is gone too.

The battleground will be removed in Battle for Azeroth. It's possible that achievements related to it will become Feats of Strength in a future Beta Build.

Strand of the Ancients has been removed in Battle for Azeroth.

Epic Battlegrounds

Yesterday, we learned that the two 40v40 Battlegrounds (Alterac Valley and Isle of Conquest) will have a separate queue in Battle for Azeroth. You can check out a full roundup of the Q/A here.

As of right now Alterac Valley and Isle of Conquest are the only two battlegrounds in the 'large random battleground' list.

Blacklisting Removal

With the separation of Alterac Valley and Isle of Conquest into their own queue, you will no longer be able to blacklist Battlegrounds. The option will be removed in Battle for Azeroth.

I wonder what the data on the blacklist was, because I know SoA and AV were the two I blacklisted and I wanted to do IoC as well.

Haha, two of these were the ones I blacklisted anyway. ^-^

I guess I wasn't the only one. I do like AV though and could see myself queuing up for that one specifically quite often.

I have mixed feelings about seeing they remove one BG... I wish they tried to improve stuff instead of removing just for the sake of it.

You must be new to games developed by Blizzard.

I have some very mixed feelings about SotA, but still a bit sad about seeing it removed.

AV and IoC has been blacklisted since that function was added for three reasons: a) I got Exalted and my Wolf back in the good old 12 hour battles of AV b) Horde has some sort of reverse WAAAAGH going on, they get dumber the more Horde in an area and c) The amount of AFK'ers in those two BGs makes me sad.

      N'lyeth, Sliver of N'Zoth is a new item discovered on 8.3 PTR which transforms you into a Servant of N'Zoth and lets you kill members of your own faction in Kul Tiras and Zandalar if you're into PvP and have War Mode on.
      To receive N'lyeth, Sliver of N'Zoth, you must first turn on War Mode and defeat 10 members of the opposing faction without dying. The subsequent quest provides you with N'lyeth, Sliver of N'Zoth and the goal is to slay 10 members of your own faction without dying to receive the Servant of N'Zoth achievement which comes with the Servant of N'Zoth title and the quest also rewards the N'lyeth, Sliver of N'Zoth toy. Other rewards are currently unknown.

      We've encountered the Talon's Vengeance faction in Legion and used Ivory Feather to collect Marks of Prey and on the Timeless Isle we used Censer of Eternal Agony to collect Bloody Coins from players back in Mists of Pandaria, so the concept isn't exactly new.

      It will be easier to acquire Nazjatar Essences in Patch 8.3 on alts. Blizzard added new Bind to Account reputation tokens which increase your rep gain with the Nazjatar factions by 250 up to Exalted.
      Mechagon already comes with a reputation-increasing item in the form of Rustbolt Resistance Insignia and instead of making Essences account-wide, Blizzard decided to implement new reputation tokens purchasable from the Nazjatar faction quartermasters. They cost 20 Prismatic Manapearls and increase your reputation with the factions by 250 each. You can buy them if you're main has reached Revered with the respective Nazjatar reputation.
      Waveswept Abyssal Conch can be purchased from Speaker Utia for 20 Prismatic Manapearls and increases your reputation with Waveblade Ankoan by 250 up to Exalted. Waveswept Abyssal Conch can be purchased from Atolia Seapearl for 20 Prismatic Manapearls and increases your reputation with the Unshackled by 250 up to Exalted. Additionally, Blizzard reduced reputation requirements from 8.2 vendor-sold Essences and you can find more details here.

      Finally Deathwing's size is getting the appropriate number of pixels to represent him as he was meant to be! We have two new AI upscaled videos to share today, starting with the into to Cataclysm, aka the Deathwing blows everything up show. There's also the ill-fated Starcraft: Ghost 3rd person shooter that was cancelled, but not before we got a pretty solid cinematic out of it, featuring the Overming, a whole lot of marines and zerg and, ofc course, Nova.

      Black Dragonscale Backpack is a cosmetic item sold by Wrathion in Patch 8.3. The cloak is actually a Wrathion-themed backpack that can be used for transmog.
      The backpack is very similar to the Vulpera Heritage Rucksack, used in the Vulpera Heritage Armor in Visions of N'Zoth.

      When you unlock Horrific Visions in the upcoming content update, you can talk to Wrathion who sells various items for Coalesced Visions and Corrupted Mementos including:
      Vessel of Horrific Visions for 10,000 Coalesced Visions; Gouged Eye of N'Zoth for 25,000 Corrupted Mementos; Black Dragonscale Backpack (new) for 40,000 Corrupted Mementos; Wicked Swarmer for 100,000 Corrupted Mementos. Related 8.3 Build 32805 News
      Veteran of the Fourth War Flavor Spell for 2nd Generation of Death Knights Vulpera Bag of Tricks Racial Mistweaver Monk Essence Changes Death Knight Eyes Update
    • By Stan
      Veteran of the Fourth War is a new spell intended for the second generation of Death Knights created in Patch 8.3. The flavor spell is in place to reflect the end of the Battle for Azeroth War Campaign in front of the Gates of Orgrimmar ([error]). It works exactly as Veteran of the Third War for existing Death Knights.
      Players who pre-ordered Shadowlands will be able to create Allied Race and Pandaren Death Knights in Visions of N'Zoth. There will be a new intro with Bolvar and Blizzard has updated their eye glow multiple times on 8.3 PTR to bring it more in line with the Lich King's eyes.
