Update: It seems that it will be Honor that's added together from various characters, not the actual prestige levels from each of them. Check out the full tweet below.

With plenty of achievements, including artifact appearance ones, tied to PvP prestige levels, the WarcraftDevs twitter reminded us of how exactly the transition to BfA will work, with all your levels from alts on the same account merging and adding up, and that added level counting towards all achievements.

So, this is one of those things you might want to get done before Battle for Azeroth lands on August 14th, so get to it!

This is awesome. Only the RNG of this game is worse than endless farming of reputations and prestige. Mindless, skillless farming...

I don't get why you are complaining? There is absolutely 0 player power tied behind Prestige lvls, its entirely vanity. If you don't want the vanity, don't do it. There is no reason it should be just handed out though, especially considering how easy it is to get many, many characters up to prestige lvl 1.

I was about to farm Prestige for my Monk to get pvp skins for the weapons, but since i am no pvp player and twink much, i have several characters sitting on prestige 1. Does this mean i can wait now for this to go live, my prestige EP to get summed up, and get all pvp Skins for all artifact weapons, for all characters? Seems a bit to easy to be right :D considering i never seriously played rogue or mage and have absolutely no right to be gifted skins that show, that you know what you are doing with that class.

I think it will count amount of Honor earned on each character, not add Prestige levels with each other.

Mounts are a nice thing to collect, I really like it. In my opinion though, they should be a reward for things that are somehow hard to accomplish such as the Mage Tower. This way it is not handed out (which I would hate even more). I think reputation and/or low chance mounts are a lazy way to keep people playing. This is no content. I have nothing against achievments for reputation. If someone wants to do them, that's none of my bussiness. Just why the mounts ;c

According to the post at the top, they add together.

 

"In Battle for Azeroth, all of your Prestige levels are going to merge. So if you have three characters who reached Prestige 4 in Legion, your account will be set to Prestige 12 in Battle for Azeroth."

Correction to this tweet: the merge will be to Honor earned account-wide. So two characters at exactly Prestige 1 will not result in Prestige 2 after the merge, but you also don't have to finish a Prestige level for that Honor to count.

The mage tower for many classes is now completely trivial due to massive overgearing, especially on the DPS ones. You can completely skip mechanics because of the massive changes in DPS.

My Fire Mage can now, over the course of the first 60 seconds of Garothi, average around 3M DPS. On Goroth in ToS, it was almost half of that. I can almost burst Agatha down in one Time Warp use.

I don't think Mage Tower is a good example of things that require skill that should reward mounts. There is Mythic Argus, Mythic Gul'dan, Glory achievements and the like for that.

I don't find it perfect too. They should scale with ilvl or something. I don't know. I just think this form is fine even if it needs improvements and I agree Mythic bosses are another good gate for such things although Gul'dan is another bad example. We down him twice a week for mounts, even badly geared alts are fine for it. Still harder than mage tower but not perfect. Anyway I still think even mage tower nowadays is better than mindless farm. And you can always brag about completing it back in Nighthold since achievs show the date.

I"m not sure whether I'm more disappointed or confused. 

I'm guessing that an account's first level of prestige will still be the reduced amount, but I'm unclear as to whether all other prestige levels will required regular amount  of 44K honor.

The first tweet  about adding prestige levels honestly wouldn't be fair to players who ground a toon to level 25, but I feel a bit cheated when the game developers promise one thing and then take it back the next day. C'mon Blizz, throw us a bone and give us more than 280 characters of info.

Is it too much to expect rhino people next expansion?

From what I understand, it'll be like taking all your characters and adding their honor earned this expansion. Then you get all that as a "reward", meaning it will go through prestige levels exactly as if you had earnt it 300 Honor at a time,

      In this article, we're taking a look at content worth finishing before Battle for Azeroth goes live.
      Ahead of the Curve: Argus the Unmaker & Cutting Edge: Argus the Unmaker
      Both achievements will be removed once the pre-patch goes live. If you don't have the achievement yet, the first round of Mythic Argus nerfs has already been deployed to live servers, so defeating Argus on Mythic difficulty should be easier now. 
      The Chosen Achievement
      The achievement will become unobtainable in Battle for Azeroth.
      Placeholder for tweet 1008845805501837316 A Challenging Look (Mage Tower Artifact Apppearance)
      Blizzard confirmed that the Mage Tower will be permanently up at some point before Battle for Azeroth goes live, but they did not clarify if they meant the pre-patch or the actual expansion. Given how Azerite traits no longer work on 8.0 PTR, it's safe to assume we're going to see an announcement regarding the permanent Mage Tower in the coming days.
      Field Medic Achievement
      First Aid will be removed in Battle for Azeroth and all achievements related to the Profession will become Feats of Strength.
      Brawler's Guild Removal
      Brawler's Guild will be on hiatus with the release of BfA, but it's very likely that we'll see it return later on in Patch 8.1 or 8.1.5. Don't forget to get the Brawler's Burly Basilisk mount!
      Strand of Ancients Removal
      The battleground will be removed in Battle for Azeroth. Achievements will turn into Feats of Strength (Master of Strand of the Ancients).
      Kirin Tor Summoning Crystal Mount
      Violet Spellwing will not be available soon. Finish the "Blood of a Titan" quest by looting Blood of the Unmaker from Argus on Heroic difficulty or higher.
      Legion Mythic Difficulty Mounts
      As is tradition, the drop rate of Mythic difficulty raid mounts will be reduced to 1% when Battle for Azeroth goes live. Legion only introduced two Mythic mounts to the game:
      Gul'dan (Fiendish Hellfire Core) Argus (Shackled Ur'zul)

      With Battle for Azeroth just two months away, Blizzard has updated the old Legion login screen with a new one in this week's Beta Build 26871.
      The background is comprised of a sunlit sky and birds flying over the walls of Lordaeron, while in the forefront, we see various artifacts that solidify Battle for Azeroth's main theme -- the upcoming faction conflict.
      The main title music has been previewed earlier and you can listen to the whole track below.
      Blizzard (Source)
      With every expansion, our musical mages reach deep down into their souls and summon a tableau of sound to accompany your next adventure. Building upon a variety of musical themes from World of Warcraft over the years, composer Glenn Stafford has infused his magic into the new main title for Battle for Azeroth, “Before the Storm.” Sit back, relax, and let the music carry you into the heart of Azeroth.
      “Before the Storm” was composed and arranged by Glenn Stafford; features additional music by Neal Acree, Sam Cardon, Clint Bajakian, and David Arkenstone; and includes classic World of Warcraft themes by Jason Hayes.

      A short batch today as Battle for Azeroth approaches, focusing on Antorus Mythic. It's all about the final boss, Argus the Unmaker, nerfing his health and two abilities.
      June 19 (source)
      Antorus, The Burning Throne Sargeras' Rage and Fear damage reduced by 15%. Argus' health reduced by 3% in Mythic Difficulty.

      In case you missed it, there was a storytelling panel back at E3 a few days ago with Steve Danuser, Sr. Narrative Designer, Terran Gregory, Project Director and Christie Golden, Sr. Writer. The full title of the panel is World of Warcraft Storytelling: Bringing a Robust Universe to Life Through Different Mediums,  and covers how the writing team connect all the disparate WoW lore and story sources, including books, comics, as well as all other online and in-game sources.
      With Battle for Azeroth being such a divisive expansion (perhaps intentionally), even way before its launch, WoW's story is under quite a big magnifying glass as of late, with Horde players in particular not being satisfied with the direction their faction/warchief is going, so this is the perfect time to buff up on just how the story department thinks and functions.
      The team discusses the interconnectivity of expansion stories, the bigger role and quantity of in-game cinematics, the relevance of the faction conflict in WoW, character deaths and much more:
