There's going to be a gnome and goblin adventure, so yeah, Mecha Gnomes are probably confirmed as an Allied Race for the Alliance. Vulpera for the Horde? There's a Mecha Gnome dungeon.


Azshara Raid

New character models for Goblin and Worgen.... hopefully there will be a new option or addon to auto transmorph into human form when not in combat. Hated when they removed that a long time ago.

Well, there's a positive side to Classic WoW : they are finally removing the ugly old WSG and AB textures in the main game. I hope they will renovate AV too and keep the awful old gameplay experience for nostalgic fans. AI brawl sounds cool too, I'm glad they are experimenting with this system, hope this will make it as a leaver-replacement sometimes in the future.
PvE sounds good to, hope mechagnome area will have some more story to it - I've been really missing a Suramar-like area from BfA.

I've updated the article with proper Patch numbers. To sum up this up:

  • Patch 8.1.5 focuses on micro-holidays, Warlords of Draenor Timewalking, and Kul Tiran Humans & Zandalari Trolls will be available for gameplay.
  • Patch 8.2 is going to include Azshara's raid that comes with 8 bosses (including an underwater encounter), Mechagnomes, new Heritage Armor, and so forth.
  • Patch 8.2.5 is when new Goblin & Worgen models will become available.
  • Thanks 2

That has nothing to do with Classic though. Classic is actually reverting everything to 1.12 assets. The update to Gulch and Basin is just part of the continuous graphic overhaul that has been happening since WoD.

I never thought I would say it when I struggling through that area, but I really do miss all the funny stuff from Suramar.  "It's an illusion!"  "Something's not quite right."  And of course my favorite... "WHAT ARE YOU HIDING?!"  


ha ha, wouldn't you like to know.

      After the Frog Farm nerf, players in MoP Remix have found a new farming spot with Goats!
      In MoP Remix, many players are now farming Goats instead of Frogs. Although the new Goat farm isn’t as profitable, it's become the new go-to spot.

      How Does the New Goat Farm Work?
      To start farming goats, head to the location in Valley of the Four Winds shown below. Screenshot courtesy of NexerdGamer.

      For maximum profits, use a Potion of Luck. The Goat farm is straightforward: fly around the designated area until you find packs of goats and kill them. There’s always at least one pack available at any time.
      For more details check out the following video by NexerdGamer.

      Blizzard is currently working on making level 70 gameplay more rewarding in MoP Remix.
      On X, Blizzard tweeted, "We hear you!" indicating that improvements to level 70 gameplay are coming soon.
      Placeholder for tweet 1792636974982955457 The first batch of MoP Remix tuning already includes some much-needed changes.

      Big changes arrive to the Remix limited time event, as Blizzard address some of the issues players have been having. We see improvements for: higher level enemy scaling, drop rates overall, LFR, dungeon and scenario XP and gem drops, and the earlier Bronze drop from caches. 
      MoP Remix (Source)
      We’re making a number of changes to address issues players have been reporting with scaling and improve the overall Remix experience by improving the viability of all content for earning additional experience, bronze, and gear. The following updates have already been made to all realms via hotfix:
      Enemy power scaling, particularly in group content, has been adjusted to be less aggressive. This is particularly applicable in the player level 40 - 70 range, before players have been able to power up their cloak, upgrade their gems, and increase their item level. Gear drop rates have been improved from world rares, rare elites, and quests. This will help players who have had their item levels fall behind as leveling speed increases, especially at higher levels when cloak bonus experience is powered up. This will also increase player Bronze and appearance acquisition by increasing the number of items to place into the Unraveling Sands for additional Bronze. The first time bonus for queueing each LFR wing will grant a Thread of Experience in addition to the existing Lesser Bronze Cache. This should improve LFR as a viable choice for leveling main characters and alts, without players feeling like they need to grind the same LFR wing repeatedly. We have added bonus experience to each boss in normal dungeons and scenarios so they are a viable alternative to questing. Bonus experience has also been adding to the last boss of Heroic Scenarios. Heroic dungeon bosses will continue to drop bonus experience. We’ve increased the number of prismatic gems dropped from bosses in normal and heroic scenarios and dungeons. The increased stamina offered by Legendary Prismatic gems boosts player survivability considerably. We have increased the Bronze granted from all qualities of Bronze Caches by 25%. These caches are available from a wide variety of sources, both solo and group. This includes the Minor Bronze Cache, Lesser Bronze Cache, Bronze Cache, and Greater Bronze Cache. There are more hotfixes on the way, and as always, we’ll detail all of them in our next hotfixes update

      Blizzard just published another short story from the War Within series about Anduin called "The Calling".
      Since leaving the realms of Death, Anduin Wrynn has only sought to keep his hands busy. Plagued by night terrors and grisly flashbacks, the young king finally finds the isolation he seeks in Stormsong Valley, milling flour for a local village. But while Anduin may be able to hide his identity, he cannot escape who he is or the stuff he is made from.

      With all zones available for playtesting in the War Within Alpha, it almost feels like the Closed Beta could start as soon as this week.
      What does this mean for Alpha testers?
      Character wipes! All Alpha characters will be deleted, and you will need to create a new character or copy one from retail once the Closed Beta starts.
      What does it mean for the rest?
      What does this mean for everyone else?
      If you opt-in for War Within Beta, you will have a chance to be selected since Blizzard will be sending out a large wave of invites for Beta testing.
      However, if you pre-ordered the Epic Edition of the War Within, Closed Beta access should be guaranteed. You can pre-order it here.
