Blizzard clarified that pre-purchasing Battle of Azeroth is not required to play the final event of the 8.0 pre-patch, the Siege of Lordaeron.

It was previously stated that players who pre-purchase Battle for Azeroth will have access to the Siege of Lordaeron one week ahead of the official BfA launch. Turns out that's no longer the case and everyone will be able to finish the scenario! Also, don't forget to finish War of Thorns! Both mounts rewarded from the event will be removed in a week!

Apologies for the necro but I couldn't find a recent post on this. (Inb4 someone links one in this thread that I missed).

It was previously communicated that you would need to pre-purchase Battle for Azeroth to play the final part of the 8.0 pre-patch event tomorrow, The Siege of Lordaeron, however, this is no longer the case and we have changed it to now be available regardless of prepurchasing the expansion!

I also want to throw out a reminder that you all have a week to go before the pre patch events are removed from the game and as such the mounts, Smoldering Reins of the Teldrassil HippogryphTeldrassil Hippogryph and the War-Torn Reins of the Undercity PlaguebatUndercity Plaguebat for the Alliance and Horde respectively, will be no longer attainable. So remember to get out to Darkshore and get those done so you don't miss out!
