Hailstone Construct

Built by the original inhabitants of Drustvar, the Hailstone Construct was built to defend these lands from any invaders. However, years of dormancy have left it addled, and it now sees all residents as threats, vowing to destroy them all.

Overview

The Hailstone Construct uses a variety of attacks to chill its enemies, from inflicting Frost damage in its melee swings to massive AOE attacks that both slow and freeze anyone hit.

Can you even dunk? If you want to win this brawl, you’re going to need to work on your skills because Dunkball has come to Pandaria. You’ll race to claim balls from the map’s center, or northern, or southern mines, take them to your enemy’s base, and then go for a magnificent long range shot or go all in for the dunk.

Darkmoon Faire (February 3rd - February 10th)

Darkmoon Faire is back in town this week. Check out our Darkmoon Faire guide to learn more about the event.

Lunar Festival (January 28th - February 11th)

The celebration continues through February 11. You can find an overview of 2019 changes in our event guide.

      Blizzard added new Benthic tokens to the game in the latest Patch 8.2 build to make gearing up easier while in Nazjatar. This article goes through Benthic gear, item effects, and upgrading.
      Benthic Gear Tokens
      Benthic tokens are similar to Relinquished tokens in Legion and they're here to provide a gear catchup. The base item level is 385. All slots except for weapons, trinkets, and rings are available. Helm, Shoulders, and Chest pieces obviously provide Azerite gear. The intro quest to the Benthic system will provide you with one piece of ilvl 385 Benthic gear which you're going to upgrade to ilvl 400.
      Benthic Gear has predetermined stats and there's no RNG involved.
      The following tokens can be purchased from Artisan Itanu (Alliance) or Finder Palta (Horde) in Nazjatar for 5 Nazjatar Manapearls:
      Benthic Bracers Benthic Chestguard Benthic Cloak Benthic Gauntlets Benthic Girdle Benthic Helm Benthic Leggings Benthic Spaulders Benthic Treads Benthic Gear (ilvl 385) can also come from Nazjatar World Quests (Source).

      Finder Plata <Treasures of the Unshackled> vendor in Nazjatar. She sells gear tokens for Nazjatar Manapearls, a new currency rewarded from various activities in Nazjatar.
      Buffs
      Benthic Gear comes with interesting effects in various slots:
      Back
      Fishy Fiends - You have a chance to loot a random fish from creatures in Nazjatar and The Eternal Palace. Frost Resistance - Frost damage taken is reduced by 2% while in Nazjatar and the Eternal Palace. Resurrect Health - Increases health gained when resurrected by 30% while in Nazjatar and the Eternal Palace. Trader's Stock - You have access to the Murloc traders' special stocks. Feet
      Aberration Master - NYI - Gain 81 Mastery for 6 seconds after killing an Aberration in Nazjatar and the Eternal Palace. Sea Floor Acrobatics - Your falling damage is reduced in Nazjatar and The Eternal Palace. Hands
      Elemental Instincts - You are more likely to find strange resources related to Mardivas. Shadow Resistance - Shadow damage taken is reduced by 2% while in Nazjatar and The Eternal Palace. Legs
      Seabed Runner - Your Speed is increased by 95 while in Nazjatar and the Eternal Palace. Swimmer's Legs - You are 5% larger while in Nazjatar and The Eternal Palace. Waist
      Damage to Aberrations - You do increased damage to Aberrations in Nazjatar and the Eternal Palace. Wrists
      Exploding Pufferfish - NYI - Your spells and abilities have a chance to summon a pufferfish that explodes, dealing 0 damage to targets within 8 yards of you. Intra-Ocean Navigation - Your swim speed is increased in Nazjatar and The Eternal Palace by 5%. Upgrading Benthic Gear
      The base item level of Benthic items is 385, but you can upgrade them all the way up to item level 415 by talking to Voidbinder Zorian, who will:
      Empower a Benthic item from Nazjatar, making it Pearled aind increasing its item level to 400 for 20 Nazjatar Manapearl. Empower a Pearled item from Nazjatar, increasing its item level by 5 up to a maximum of 415 for 10 Nazjatar Manapearls per upgrade. Empower a Pearled Azerite item from Nazjatar, increasing its item level by 15, up to a maximum of 415 for 30 Nazjatar Manapearls.
      Upgrade tokens listed below have been removed from the Quartermaster. The upgrade process is now handled by a NPC.
      Azsharan Pearling Kit costs 20 Nazjatar Manapearls and the item is used to empower a Benthic item from Nazjatar, making it Pearled aind increasing its item level to 400. Azsharan Pearling Enhancement costs 10 Nazjatar Manapearls. The item's used to empower a Pearled item from Nazjatar, increasing its item level by 5 up to a maximum of 415. Azsharan Azerite Pearling Enhancement costs 30 Nazjatar Manapearls and the item is used to upgrade a Pearled Azerite item from Nazjatar, increasing its item level by 15, up to a maximum of 415. Benthic Gear is here to help you catch up on gear in Rise of Azshara.

      With the new patch coming tomorrow/Wednesday, it seems there's a round of Battle for Azeroth trials that include 3 days of free game time going around, but the gift is only hitting certain players. The gift is showing up in the Battle.net app, seemingly only for inactive accounts and possibly only those inactive since Legion as well. There also seems to be a way to trigger the gift if you haven't received it by going to the Battle.net site and clicking to set up a subscription (but not going through with it), which should trigger the gift if you're eligible for it.

      We don't know what the exact requirements are for it at the moment and it could be just random, but these are some of the facts gathered up over on the WoW reddit. I've tried this myself on an account that's been inactive since around the start of BfA, but did not receive the gift.


      As for the trial itself, other than the 3 days of free game time you can also play a trial character through as much of the Battle for Azeroth experience as you can manage, but you cannot play your own characters through it, as they'll still be stuck in Legion content and unable to progress beyond the Battle for Lordaeron event.
