BfA Pre-Purchase Not Needed for Battle for Lordaeron

Recommended Posts


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!

      Head to Dalaran and talk to the Archaeology Trainer to receive The Right Path quest where you are sent to Thunder Totem in Highmountain to collect Bone Fragment of Eche'ro for the Spirit of Eche'ro mount. Note that the quest is available only once every six months, so don't forget to complete it before it's gone!
      Download MapCoords or some other addons that display coordinates on the world map. Teleport to Azsuna from the Stormwind/Orgrimmar Portal Room or use your Dalaran Hearthstone to reach Dalaran. Go to 41,26 find Dariness the Learned and learn Archaeology if you already haven't. Accept The Right Path quest from the Archaeology Trainer and fly to Thunder Totem in Highmountain. Talk to Lessah Moonwater to accept Laying to Rest. For the quest, you must collect 600 Bone Fragment of Eche'ro from four digsites in Highmountain.

      We've heard a lot of news on the Shadowlands Druid visual choice improvements, from the fact that they can now change their bear and cat form looks regardless of their other cosmetic choices, the fact that you can do that in the barbershop etc, but now we have even more good news/confirmations! With the PTR up it seems Blizzard have indeed decided to allow the Druid of the Flame/fire cat/cinder kitten/Majordomo Staghelm cat form to be used, as long as you've unlocked it via the Fandral's Flamescythe staff (the unlock is account-wide), which they've been considering for a while now! It's still a little unclear if having gotten the Fandral's Seed Pouch toy would also unlock the option in the barbershop for you.

      The other piece of good news is that all the Legion artifact appearances (and indeed even the fire cat) can be selected regardless of your currently used spec! This adds a whole lot of freedom for druids to look as they want, and will almost certainly increase the number of people going for some of the artifact looks and, of course, the fire cat.

      One of the key parts of the pre-expansion Scourge invasion event is that players can get infected and be transformed into zombies, receiving a new set of abilities and becoming hostile to both factions! As you'd expect this is a pretty popular activity on the PTR right now, with hordes of zombies taking down everything and everyone in the capital cities and beyond. You can get cured by either dying or by visiting an Argent healer... but why would you want to do that? One especially interesting aspect of this is that apparently NPCs can get infected as well, leading to some pretty massive gatherings.

      Despite this being potentially pretty disruptive, with quest NPCs missing and players in ghoul form terrorizing the countryside, hopefully Blizzard leave it as is for the live event, since things like this really add to the dynamics of the game, as having unique periods where strange and even annoying stuff happens is great variety!
      Here are the abilities you'll get when turned into a zombie:
        Mangle! - Melee that adds a 5% damage taken debuff. Retch! - Creates green goo on the floor that slows enemies. Beckoning Groan - Calls 4 NPC zombies to help you if nearby. Lurch! - 100% speed increase for you and nearby zombies. Zombie Explosion! - Explode and deal damage around you. You die.

      Today's hotfixes affect Warlocks' Singe Magic and Glyph of Fel Imp and fix an issue EU realms were having with Cataclysm timewalking having started a day early.
      August 11 (source)
      Warlock Resolved an issue that prevented Singe Magic from triggering the correct cooldown when Glyph of Fel Imp is applied to your Summon Imp spell. Timewalking
      [For realms in the EU region only] The Cataclysm Timewalking event incorrectly began a day early in Europe. Developers’ note: We have adjusted this week's event duration and spawned the appropriate vendors early to ensure that it runs until the next weekly reset. The weekly event schedule should remain on Wednesdays for EU realms going forward.
