New Raid: Crucible of Storms

A long-submerged evil stirs beneath the Shrine of the Storm. The whispers that drove Lord Stormsong to madness echo within the depths, a siren song of eldritch power. Those who listen and obey prepare dark rituals to carry out their master’s will. Whatever nightmarish schemes fuel their fantastical devotion, one thing is certain: they must be stopped.

Raid Unlock Schedule

April 16—Normal and Heroic Difficulties
April 23—Mythic and Raid Finder Difficulties

PvP Updates

NEW EPIC BATTLEGROUND

Brace yourself for the return of the cold bite of Wintergrasp where you’ll compete against the enemy faction in a massive 40-player Battleground. For the first week of this content update, Wintergrasp is featured as a Brawl. Thereafter, you’ll find Wintergrasp in the Epic Battleground selection in Group Finder (default hotkey: i).

UPDATED BATTLEGROUNDS

Step into two classic Battlegrounds—Arathi Basin and Warsong Gulch— and experience newly updated graphics with the same epic gameplay you know and love.

NEW BRAWL: COMP STOMP

Head into Arathi Basin for a head-to-head battle against AI opponents. This new Brawl will be available March 19. Use the Group Finder tool (default hotkey: i) in the Player vs. Player tab to take part.

The War Campaign Continues

New chapters in the War Campaign for the Horde and Alliance take the story beyond the Battle of Dazar’alor as Sylvanas’ latest scheme causes Baine Bloodhoof to seek out Jaina Proudmoore, far from prying eyes.

WAR CAMPAIGN MOUNTS

Players who complete the War Campaign on both a Horde and an Alliance character will earn new achievement,Two Sides to Every Tale, and new mount reward:the Bloodflank Charger (Horde) and Ironclad Frostclaw (Alliance).

To earn this new achievement, you’ll need to have completed A Nation United, Zandalari Forever, Tides of Vengeance (Alliance), and Tides of Vengeance (Horde).

The Return of Hati

If you’re a level 120 Hunter, you’ll want to speak to Image of Mimiron located in Tradewinds Market in Boralus or the Great Bazaar in Zuldazar to get started on a new quest chain. You’ll learn more about Hati’s fate, and maybe even reunite with your old friend

Companion App Updates

The WoW Companion App has been updated to include a new calendar feature, social feature, and updated support for new World Quests so you can keep on top of everything going on in Azeroth wherever you go.

New Portal Rooms

New portal rooms are now located in Stormwind within the mage tower and just inside the front gates of Orgrimmar, where your faction has consolidated gateways to the other key locations of Azeroth.

New Pets

RAIDING WITH LEASHES  VI: PETS OF PANDARIA

Take to the Mists of Pandaria raid dungeons Mogu’shan Vaults, Terrace of Endless Spring, and Heart of Fear to collect the following 11 new pets that drop from the following bosses:

  • Amberglow Stinger:  (Blade Lord Ta’yak – Heart of Fear)
    “The glow emanating from these is both calming and eerie at the same time when in total darkness.”
  • Kor’thik Smarmling: (Imperial Vizier Zor’lok – Heart of Fear)
    “Don’t let these eat after midnight; legend has it that it’s very dangerous.”
  • Living Amber:  (Amber Shaper Un’sok – Heart of Fear)
    “The mantid are extremely reliant upon amber for many things, and even use it in some of their magic.”
  • Spawn of Garalon:  (Garalon – Heart of Fear)
    “The kunchong are extremely aggressive and will eat just about anything they can as soon as they are able to walk. If they can’t eat it, they will smash it instead.”
  • Ravenous Prideling: (Grand Empress Shek’zeer – Heart of Fear)
    “As a spawn of the most dangerous sha, this little monster has some big plans, but needs to wait a few thousand years first.”
  • Baoh-Xi:  (Qin-xi –Mogu’shan Vaults)
    “For being an inanimate object for many centuries, this statue sure moves around really well.”
  • Comet: (Elegon – Mogu’shan Vaults)
    “The Engine of Nalak’sha is defended by many mighty beings, and many tiny beings.”
  • Stoneclaw: (The Stone Guard —Mogu’shan Vaults)
    “Quilen were the favored companions of the ancient mogu race due to their loyal nature.”
  • Azure Windseeker:  (Tsulong – Terrace of Endless Spring)
    “This little cloud serpent’s favorite activity is chasing its own tail.”
  • Spirit of the Spring:  (Lei Shi — Terrace of Endless Spring)
    “The elemental spirits of Pandaria have been known to plan tricks to play on unsuspecting visitors years in advance.”
  • Wayward Spirit:  (Gara’jal the Spiritbinder –  Mogu’shan Vaults)
    “Crossing into the spirit world too often can be dangerous for your health.”

Upon earning the Raiding with Leashes VI: Pets of Pandaria Raiding with Leashes VI: Pets of Pandaria achievement, you’ll also receive the pet Happiness Happiness as a reward.

Happiness: “This thing is equally as evil as it is adorable.”

NEW MECHANICAL PARROT QUEST

Feathers the parrot is now available to add some mechanical squawk to your collection. Speak to Gazlowe in Zandalar Harbor or Kelsey Steelspark in Boralus to get started.

Don't see any flying in this patch. That's so very disappointing, I thought for sure we were promised in patch 8.1.5. Maybe I'm just getting old. Will VR come to bfa before flying?

I imagine we'll get flying with the next raid in 8.2, depending on if another zone is released, similar to Argus. If not, we might only see it in 8.3. At the end of the day, who knows when we'll actually get it. It'll appear whenever they think people no longer need to "see" the world.

Flying did come in 7.2, but it was with Broken Shore/Tomb of Sargeras, not Argus.

i hope they will release 8.2 without flying, so we can explore the shores of azshara's themple and mechagon on the ground, and get flying with 8.2.5 and be able to fly in those two areas as well.

I liked to traverse the areas of the broken shore, with the hook from legion, to get to the treasures, but when the area is obsolete and new content comes later down the line, flying is a must, or else noone will bother with those zones. not even with twinks.

      We have a smaller batch today, but still on the large side, with plenty of item, profession and quest fixes, as well as some class changes and more.
      December 6 (Source)
      Classes
      Death Knight Blood Fixed an issue with Voracious increasing Death Strike’s minimum heal by more than intended. Hunter Fixed an issue where enemies that were immune to the knockback from High Explosive Trap were still being affected by Binding Shackles. Priest Shadow Psyfiend health reduced to 4% of the Priest’s maximum health (down from 10%). Psyfiend is no longer immune to debuffs and channel effects. The channel duration of Psyflay from Psyfiend is now 12 seconds to match the creature’s duration. Creatures and NPCs
      Fixed an issue where Enkine the Voracious could not be summoned. Dungeons and Raids
      Halls of Infusion Fixed an issue that was preventing Death Knights from returning to the dungeon using Death Gate. Items and Rewards
      Fixed an issue where if a player dies while equipped with the Primal Ritual Shell the chosen buff resets to wind. Adjusted the drop rates of Rousing Ire across all forms of content. In general, gathering should be providing substantially less, while participating in instanced PvP should be more rewarding. Dreamscape Prism now correctly increases your Mastery. Food buffs received from the Valdrakken Feast will no longer be cancelled when using your Hearthstone. The “Fully Ruby Feasted” debuff has been fixed to allow the players two simultaneous Ruby Feast buffs, and will no longer affect any of the cosmetics received from food here. Fixed an issue where trading Bundle O' Cards: Dragon Isles and Soggy Clump of Darkmoon Cards could cause the client to crash. Professions
      The number of first-time crafts that can grant experience has been reduced to 30 (was 60). Developers’ note: We made this change to better support gaining XP from crafting during leveling, while minimizing the incentive to take on several throw-away professions just to level yourself faster. Fishing Fixed an issue where Tuskarr Fishing Holes were not available to players with Iskaara Tuskarr Renown rank 4 on the account and Dragon Isles Fishing. Quests
      The Azure Span Made some backend changes to the Community Feast to reduce lag. Developers’ note: Please let us know if you see unusually high lag, particularly if it happens only in the Iskaara area, or if it only happens while the Community Feast event is occurring. Ohn’ahran Plains The quest boss for “The Field of Ferocity: Master of the Hunt!” should now behave properly when both left unengaged in combat and when being defeated. Thaldraszus Fixed an issue where players and NPCs were floating during the “Back to the Future” cinematic. Fixed an issue in “Cracks in Time” where the extra action button was not displaying while dragonriding. The Waking Shores Fixed an issue where Disgruntled Riverbeast Matriarch was not displaying the proper tooltip during “Wildlife Rescue.”

      Blizzard have announced that they will be changing the way Bind on Equip items work in Mythic difficulty of Vault of the Incarnates in the first few weeks of Dragonflight Season 1.
      BoE (Source)
      When the Vault of the Incarnates raid opens next week, enemies inside will occasionally drop Bind-on-Equip loot, as in previous raids. For early Season 1 play, we’re putting a restriction on BoEs that drop in Mythic difficulty.
      For the first few weeks of Dragonflight Season 1, items that would have been Bind-on-Equip in lower difficulties will drop as Bind-on-Pickup items in Mythic difficulty. One of our goals with rewards has always been to primarily make the best loot in the game come through gameplay, rather than spending gold. Bind-on-Equip items from raids have long been exceptions to that, but they provide something unique to raiders: when raid groups don’t need the BoEs for progression anymore, they can be sold to fund consumables and repairs. In Dragonflight Season 1, Mythic difficulty is opening at the same time as other difficulties, a full week before players will have even opened the Vault for the first time, and Mythic BoEs represent more of a power increase than we wish to see available for gold.
      Once a few weeks have passed, we’ll revise the items to drop as BoEs in Mythic difficulty. Please note that the second adjustment will not change already-acquired soulbound gear back into Bind-on-Equip. After that time, only new drops will be BoEs.
      We’ll see you in Vault of the Incarnates next week!

      The Chromie quest that has us falling through time eventually leads to the Black Empire days, and Senpai The Explorer stuck around a little longer in there to explore the zone!
      While there's not that much to see in the extra exploration part, it's still one of the more interesting zones in WoW so it's definitely worth at least a skim through, and we can all take bets on whether Ragnaros of Mythrax wins that particular fight.
      And if you prefer a shorter, image-based look, here's joey_crackpot to oblige:

      Here's a really fast one, as Dragonflight brought a very helpful tool with it that helps fight, well, bugs in object placement, basically.
      As spotted by think_brainblast, the interact key can actually be used to get at objects that are stuck in the scenery and are difficult or even impossible to get to, like ore or treasures. Keep in mind that the key orients itself based on camera position, not character position.
      The other very useful function we've already covered is for fishing, as you can use the interact key to do it entirely without a mouse! And, of course, there's the basic and intended use for the key, as it lets you interact with quest givers, NPCs... well, everything really. Definitely give it a try if you haven't, as it's one of the most useful things added to WoW in quite a while.

      Torghast doesn't scale to Level 70, which means it's easier now than ever to earn Tower Ranger and Flawless Master (Layer 16) achievements and the various rewards they offer.
      If you returned to the game in Dragonflight but skipped Shadowlands, you should definitely clear Torghast.
      The mobs in Torghast do not scale to Level 70, so getting the achievements won't take up much your time.  You can add multiple rewards including titles, a battle pet, and mounts to your collection, which is useful if you're working on Thanks for the Carry!.
      Tower Ranger rewards the "Tower Ranger" title. Flawless Master (Layer 16) rewards Sturdy Gilded Mawrat Harness. Twisting Corridors: Layer 8 rewards Corridor Creeper. The Jailer's Gauntlet: Layer 4 rewards Sturdy Soulsteel Mawrat Harness.
