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.

      Here's another Mythic+ non-meta victory, with a controller using tank finishing up the achievement in the worst Covenant for the spec in M+, in PUGs!
      We look at the log rankings, tier lists and various other optimizations and standings a lot here, so it's also important to point out that you really can get most non-highest end content done with any spec you want. Berub proved this and then some, as they got KSM while tanking as a Blood Death Knight Night Fae, the worst Covenant for M+ for the spec AND used a controller while doing it! And the best part? The reason Berub chose Night Fae is because of the armor looks!

      And while many others have completed KSM with off-meta specs, and some did with a controller as well, the tank + worst Covenant + controller part is especially impressive, and Berub didn't quite mention the control method to the groups, or those runs probably never would have happened at all. Here are some comments from the journey:
      Hopefully examples like this encourage players to try new things and now be quite as limited by the meta, despite it being pretty hard to get into groups, especially for DPS.

      This week's world boss is Mortanis and you can find him in Maldraxxus.
      Mortanis
      One of the most studied necromancers of the House of Rituals, Mortanis has been working tirelessly on a means of transforming himself into a more powerful form. Now, he is only a few moments from succeeding.

      Mortanis drops Item Level 207 loot along with various Legendary Power recipes and Conduits. Do not forget to pick the Renown weekly quest for 1,000 Anima before killing Mortanis. We are listing the full loot table below. 

      Memory of Fujieda (Warrior Legendary Power) Memory of Keefer (Monk Legendary Power) Memory of a Guile Charm (Rogue Legendary Power) Band of the Risen Bonelord (Ring) Mortanis's Ribcage (Mail Chest) Bone Crushing Vicegrips (Mail Gloves) Bone-Cleated Footpads (Leather Feet) Spine Crawler Waistcord (Cloth Belt) Shoulderblade Vambraces (Plate Wrists)

      There seem to be some new issues with the EU authentication servers, as many players are unable to log in. So if you're having trouble playing at the moment, don't worry, it's not just you:

      Anyone having issues loggin in (EU)? fix the servers Blizzard have also responded on the matter, but it seems to still be ongoing:
      So we'll just have to wait a bit more, although the issue has been persisting for about an hour now.

      Are you wondering how your spec performs in Mythic+? Here's a tier list with all specializations!
      DISCLAIMER
      In this article, we are taking a look at the tier list for Mythic+ based on the data gathered by Benched.me. The site plots all runs available from the Blizzard API (excluding the Chinese region) on a single ridge plot, so it is different from our Shadowlands Mythic+ Rankings maintained by Petko.
      How the Data is Calculated
      To rank all specializations, Benched.me uses something called Meta Ratio Score. The "ratio" is between the specialization's representation in the meta vs. its representation in the population. For example, a specialization makes up 3% of all players in the population, but 6% in the meta, which means that spec's ratio is 6% / 3% = 2.
      Furthermore, the site defines the "population" as all keys level 2 through 15 and the "meta" as keys 16 and above. Based on that, we break down specs into tiers based on their meta ratio as follows:
      S-Tier: Ratio of at least 1.5. A-Tier: Ratio between 1 and 1.5. B-Tier: Ratio between 0.5 and 1. C-Tier: Ratio below 0.5, but greater than 0. F-Tier: Ratio of 0 (the spec isn't present in the high-level bin at all). Spec Tier List for Mythic+
      S-Tier
      Fire Mage - 2.02 ratio Balance Druid - 1.75 ratio Outlaw Rogue - 1.74 ratio Vengeance Hunter - 1.64 ratio A-Tier
      Holy Paladin - 1.37 ratio Restoration Shaman - 1.36 ratio Windwalker Monk - 1.33 ratio Marksmanship Hunter - 1.28 ratio Brewmaster Monk - 1.15 ratio Fury Warrior - 1.14 ratio Discipline Priest - 1.08 ratio Affliction Warlock - 1.08 ratio B-Tier
      Guardian Druid - 0.89 ratio Unholy Death Knight - 0.75 ratio Shadow Priest - 0.73 ratio Havoc Demon Hunter - 0.72 ratio Restoration Druid - 0.71 ratio Blood Death Knight - 0.61 ratio Protection Paladin - 0.53 ratio Holy Priest - 0.5 ratio Elemental Shaman - 0.5 ratio C-Tier
      Enhancement Shaman - 0.47 ratio Protection Warrior - 0.41 ratio Mistweaver Monk - 0.41 ratio Feral Druid - 0.41 ratio Survival Hunter - 0.39 ratio Destruction Warlock - 0.39 ratio Frost Mage - 0.37 ratio Retribution Paladin - 0.35 ratio Assassination Rogue - 0.35 ratio Frost Death Knight - 0.31 ratio Subtlety Rogue - 0.31 ratio Arcane Mage - 0.31 ratio Arms Warrior - 0.30 ratio Demonology Warlock - 0.28 ratio Beast Mastery Hunter - 0.19 ratio
