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,

      Blizzard recently announced improvements to Azerite Armor acquisition from Mythic+. You can find more details here. Heritage Armor will be added for non-Allied Races; Blood Elves & Dwarves are first on the list. There's no reputation grind behind this. If you're at max level and Exalted with Ironforge/Blood Elves, you can start the quest and complete a scenario to get your Heritage Armor. Reputation Paragon for BfA factions is coming. Champions of Azeroth reputation will be made account-wide. Incursions are a new feature similar to Legion assaults. Darkshore Warfront (Night Elves vs Forsaken theme) The outdoor zone will be updated just like Arathi Highlands with new quests, rares, etc. War Campaign continues with the Alliance leading a direct strike at the Zandalari Fleet. We can expect two new raids in 8.1: Siege of Zuldazar is a nine-boss raid where the foe is the opposing faction. Alliance players will join Jaina and her forces to fight their way up to the pyramid to confront Rastakhan. Horde players will try to defend the pyramid, fighting Jaina in the High Seas as the final boss. Crucible of Storms is a two-boss raid located under Shrine of the Storm that hints at Queen Azshara. It's Battle for Azeroth's "Trial of Valor" raid. Allied Races: Kul Tirans and Zandalari Trolls will become available for gameplay after the Siege of Zuldazar raid. You can find more details about how to unlock them here. Two New Islands: Jorundall (Vrykul-themed Island) & Havenswood (Gilnean-themed Island) Gnomeregan Pet Battle Dungeon Profession Changes New Scenarios Tyrande's Ascension - players will unlok new Night Elf Warrior customization options with dark eyes.

      G.M.O.D. (Gallywix's Mech of Death) is a new mount that has a small chance to drop from High Tinker Mekkatorque in Battle of Dazar'alor as personal loot, similar to Antorus' Antoran Charhound from Hounds of Sargeras or Sassz'ine's Abyss Worm back in Tomb of Sargeras.
      Check out our Tides of Vengeance hub for the latest Patch 8.1 news!
      G.M.O.D.
      Garishly sporting extreme amounts of goblin flair, Gallywix commissioned his Mech of Death to one up Mekkatorque in combat and more importantly in style.

      Well, if you thought some of Rextroys "special" videos were sometimes a little boring and repetitive... you ain't seen nothin' yet. In one of the longest and probably most insane attempts ever, he's decided to spend 16.5 hours downing MOTHER using only Corruption and the power of jumping. The whole thing took this long since he's overlooked the fact that armor decays naturally while you're in combat, and so his gear lasted a mere 8 hours, making him finish out the fight almost fully red (minus the weapons). As usual, he reported the bug to Blizzard before posting the video, but as he mentions himself, it's very hard to get her to bug out like that and he's not even sure how he did it.

      Obviously the interesting parts are the actual pull and positioning, which is literally 99% of the kill, and the kill itself at the end.
       
      This isn't the first time he's gone after MOTHER, either, as one of his first Uldir solos was her on normal difficulty. You can also check out some of his other videos, including Taloc Normal, Kin'garoth Normal, Atal'Dazar M+10 and, of course, the 0.5 second Vectis kill that got him banned and subsequantly unbanned, as well as our interview with him on the matter.
