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.

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.

      Two Sides to Every Tale is a new achievement that rewards two interesting mounts in Patch 8.1.5. Alliance players will unlock a Wolf mount, whereas the Horde can get a Horse mount. You can earn them by completing the Tides of Vengeance War Campaign and the A Nation United / Zandalar Forever! achievements on both factions.
      Check out our Patch 8.1.5 for the latest World of Warcraft news.
      Bloodflank Charger
      "Stolen from the Arathi Basin stables, this fire-hearted charger now steeds for the Horde."

      Ironclad Frostclaw
      "Captured in the snows of Alterac Valley, this bloodthirsty hunter now roars for the Alliance."
