Allied Races - Kul Tiran Humans and Zandalari Trolls Now Available

Take the final steps to bring new comrades into your faction. Level 120 players who wish to create a Kul Tiran will need to reach Exalted with Proudmoore Admiralty and earn the achievements A Nation United and Tides of Vengeance. Those wanting to create a Zandalari character must be level 120, reach Exalted with Zandalari Empire and earn the Zandalar Forever! and Tides of Vengeanceachievements. Once you complete the requirements, visit the Alliance embassy in Stormwind or Horde embassy in Orgrimmar to begin a quest chain to recruit these new Allied races.

Kul Tiras was founded by fearless explorers who sailed uncharted waters in search of adventure. As a key member of the Alliance of Lordaeron, the Kul Tiran navy dominated the seas of Azeroth with its legendary fleet.

The Zandalari are a proud people whose origins date back to the early days of Azeroth's history. Their fierce warriors ride dinosaurs into battle, and they possess one of the most formidable naval fleets in the known world.

Leveling your new Kul Tiran or Zandalari from 20 to 110 will earn you a unique cosmetic Heritage Armor set. You’ll also unlock a new mount—the Kul Tiran Charger or Zandalari Direhorn—for your collection at character creation.

New Quests

Many new stories and adventures are now available across Azeroth.

The War Campaign Continues

Sylvanas’s latest scheme causes Baine Bloodhoof to seek out Jaina Proudmoore, far from prying eyes. Speak to Bluffwatcher Proudscar in Zuldazar or Halford Wyrmbane in Boralus to further your faction’s agenda in this time of strife.

Tools of the Trade

Embark on all new profession questlines for Alchemy, Blacksmithing, Enchanting, Engineering, Inscription, Jewelcrafting, Leatherworking, and Tailoring, each culminating in an epic reward. If you've reached level 150 in Kul Tiran or Zandalari professions, return to your main profession trainer(s) in Boralus and Zuldazar to get started.

Magni Bronzebeard

Seek out the Speaker and speak with him to seek the understanding you’ll need to address the fate of Azeroth. Level 120 players should heed Magni’s call to continue the story and earn an item-level increase to your Heart of Azeroth.

Hati

All level 120 Hunters of Azeroth should speak to the Image of Mimiron located in Tradewinds Market in Boralus or the Great Bazaar in Zuldazar.  You’ll discover more about Hati’s whereabouts and make a future with your spirited companion by your side once again.

New Naga World Quests

Beneath the depths something sinister stirs…

The serpentine forces of Queen Azshara are boldly venturing onto the beaches of Kul Tiras and Zandalar—strike them down!

New Tortollan World Quests

A turtle made it to the water? Not on your watch.

Brawler's Guild is Back

There’s a murder mystery afoot, and you’re going to have to fight to find the answers. Available at level 120, this series of rowdy boss fights is open once again in Bizmo’s Brawlpub near the Deeprun Tram in Stormwind and Brawl’gar Arena in the Ring of Valor in Orgrimmar. Of course, Brawler’s Guild is accessible by invitation only, so if you’ve never been inside, you’ll need to acquire an invitation. Enemies of the opposite faction in Zandalar and Kul Tiras now drop invitations, and a new vendor named A. Shady occasionally has them for sale in Orgrimmar and Stormwind. Brawler’s Guild has new bosses, a new questline, new transmog gear to be won, and a new mount: Bruce! He’s a good boy.

Wintergrasp is now an Epic Battleground

War is rekindled in the frozen north! 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).

New Raid - Crucible of Storms

In Stormwind’s Mage Quarter and Orgrimmar’s Valley of Strength, new venues are now open where your faction has consolidated gateways to the other continents of Azeroth, Outland, and Draenor.

  • Several non-boss enemies have been removed in Mythic Keystone dungeons while Teeming is active.
  • Tormented Souls will now try to get closer to their target before casting Grave Bolt.

  • Updated Seafarer's Dubloon bags so that at least one will always drop from an Island Expedition victory. This change significantly increases the amount of Dubloons a player will get as they complete their weekly islands.

Items

  • Krom Stoutarm in Ironforge’s Hall of Explorers and Estelle Gendry on Orgrimmar’s main gate now offer new Battle-Hardened Heirloom upgrade tokens that will allow your Heirlooms to scale to level 120.
  • The costs to purchase all Heirloom upgrade tokens with gold have been reduced.
  • Incandescent Sliver and Diamond-Laced Refracting Prism trinket buffs are now cleared consistently on encounter, arena, and battleground start.

    • Developers' notes: It was not our intention that these items require extra preparation prior to a boss pull. The Diamond-Laced Refracting Prism’s effect was already cleared at the start of a rated PvP match, so this change makes them both consistent between PvP and non-PvP encounters.

    • Hunter
      • Beast Mastery
        • Feeding Frenzy Feeding Frenzy’s tooltip damage displayed has been lowered commensurate with Barbed Shot now ignoring armor. Its total effective damage remains unchanged.
    • Mage
    • Monk
      • Windwalker
    • Shaman
      • Enhancement
        • Roiling Storm Roiling Storm now causes you to gain Stormbringer every 20 seconds and causes your Stormbringer-empowered Stormstrikes to deal additional damage.
      • Restoration
        • Ascendance Ascendance no longer replicates healing from Spouting Spirits.
    • Warlock

Player versus Player

  • Players who have earned their seasonal mount reward in rated PvP may now progress toward earning Vicious Saddles, up to a maximum of 10 Vicious Saddles per season.
  • Druid
  • Hunter
    • Tar Trap Tar Trap will now break an enemy player out of stealth if they are the one to activate the trap.
  • Priest
  • Warlock
    • Destruction
      • Demon Armor Demon Armor now increases Armor by 150% (was 275%).
        • During Battle for Azeroth Season 1, we identified that Warlocks were taking too much damage from physical sources during PvP. We remedied this by adding a new PvP talent, Demon Armor, which increased their physical mitigation to match characters wearing Plate Armor. As we've been monitoring Season 2, we feel that the armor increase caused Warlocks to become too tanky in the current meta. This change effectively brings their physical mitigation close to that of Mail Armor (about 36% at ilvl 415), when it was previously similar to Plate Armor (about 45% at ilvl 415).

  • Warrior

Professions

  • Inscription
    • The esteemed mage Endora Moorehead has written a new Technique: Glyph of Dalaran Brilliance. Scribes can purchase this from her in Northrend's Dalaran and create a glyph for Mages to once again update their Arcane Intellect to that taught by the Kirin Tor.
  • Skinning
    • Skinning beasts in the Monk class hall now awards Classic Skinning points.

Rewards

  • Bosses in Battle of Dazar’alor and Crucible of Storms now drop 450 Artifact Power (was 250).

  • Artifact Power rewards in the weekly PvP reward cache have been increased by 500 AP at each PvP rank (Combatant, Challenger, etc.)

      It's time for Cataclysm Timewalking this week and players level 86 and above are eligible to enter the Firelands Timewalking raid for the very first time.
      Firelands, the new Timewalking raid, has been added to the game in Patch 8.2.5, and this week, it's the first time players can enter it and defeat the seven bosses for loot.
      You can find item level 395 loot in Timewalking dungeons and item level 415 loot dropping in the new raid. Completing 5 Timewalking dungeons for the weekly quest rewards Cache of Palace Treasures, a chest with one piece of gear from Normal difficulty The Eternal Palace.
      Don't forget that Reins of the Infinite Timereaver has a chance to drop from any Timewalking dungeon boss as Personal Loot and save up your Timewarped Badges for expensive mounts like Beastlord's Irontusk, Beastlord's Warwolf, Bridle of the Ironbound Wraithcharger, Yu'lei, Daughter of Jade, and more.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Gather your staunchest allies and head into the Firelands raid dungeon to take on the elemental lord Ragnaros and his cohorts—and take on six dungeons from Deathwing’s era— during Cataclysm Timewalking, running December 10–17.
      The Firelands is the molten domain forged by the titans to house Ragnaros and his wayward minions. Following Deathwing’s emergence into Azeroth, Ragnaros and his servants surged onto the slopes of Mount Hyjal before being driven back by the sacred mountain’s valiant defenders. Now Ragnaros is rallying his loyalists to defend the Firelands from Azeroth’s champions.
      When: The Firelands raid is available throughout the Cataclysm Timewalking event.
      Difficulty: The difficulty is set to Normal and, like any Normal level raid, will not be available through Raid Finder.
      Minimum Level: Players level 86 and above are eligible to participate.
      Bosses: (7) Beth’tilac, Lord Rhyolith, Alysrazor, Shannox, Baleroc, the Gatekeeper, Majordomo Staghelm, Ragnaros
      During Cataclysm Timewalking, you can assemble a raid group of between 1 and 30 players to step into the molten domain of Ragnaros. Don’t have a regular group? The Group Finder (I) can help. Create your own group in the Premade Groups section or search for like-minded adventurers.
      DUNGEONS IN CATACLYSM TIMEWALKING
      Grim Batol
      Don’t be fooled by Grim Batol’s humble exterior; many of this mountain fortress’s desecrated chambers are buried deep in the Twilight Highlands. Once the stronghold of the Wildhammer dwarves, and later seized by orcs as a prison for Alexstrasza, the city is now in the clutches of the Twilight’s Hammer cult.
      The Stonecore
      Within the Temple of Earth, locked in the heart of Deepholm, lies the Stonecore. It was inside these caverns that the Twilight’s Hammer toiled over Deathwing, hammering elementium plates to the Dragon Aspect’s body in an attempt to hold his tormented form together. With his renewal complete, Deathwing ascended into Azeroth, shattering the World Pillar and destabilizing the region of Deepholm.
      Lost City of theTol’vir
      The Lost City of the Tol’vir is the stronghold of the Neferset, a faction of the cat-like tol’vir who swore fealty to Deathwing in exchange for a cure to the curse of flesh, which had turned their rocky hides to soft skin. With the affliction expunged, the tol’vir have rebelled against the benefactor, although they remain irrevocably twisted and hostile due to the dark pact they made.
      The Vortex Pinnacle
      The Vortex Pinnacle exists within the elemental plane of Skywall. Its elegant structures, crowned with bronze and gold, sit atop platforms bridged by pure air. Yet behind its exterior beauty, the pinnacle harbors Neferset tol’vir, as well as Al’Akir the Windlord’s merciless elemental legions. As long as the barrier between Skywall and Azeroth remains open, terror will rain down on Uldum from the skies.
      Throne of the Tides
      Deep within the Abyssal Maw’s fathomless expanses lies the Throne of the Tides. From here, the great elemental lord Neptulon the Tidehunter has surveyed and protected his aquatic domain for ages. He now faces his greatest challenge as a force of serpentine naga and malefic faceless ones threaten to depose him, leaving his realm and its secrets ripe for the plundering.
      End Time
      One of an infinite number of potential outcomes, this timeway depicts the desolate future of Azeroth should Deathwing fail to be stopped. Nozdormu has identified a powerful anomaly that exists in this moment and bars access to the past—and hope of retrieving the Demon Soul. The powerful creature from out of time lives alone amidst the time-twisted echoes of the past.
      JUST THE FACTS
      Your character and items will be scaled down to a power level fitting for the challenge at hand, but bosses will yield loot appropriate for your regular level. Timewalking dungeons also have a chance to drop items that usually drop when you run them on Heroic, and you’ll earn reputation with a faction that is interested in the dungeon. For example, when you Timewalk through The Stonecore, Slabhide could drop the Reins of the Vitreous Stone Drake mount for you.
      Look for the following all week long:
      Chronicler Shoopa in Zuldazar and Chronicler Toopa in Boralus have a quest for you. You can also start the quest from within the Adventure Guide (Shift- J).
      Quest Requirement: Complete 5 Timewalking dungeons.
      Rewards: Artifact Power and one loot box containing a piece of gear from Normal difficulty The Eternal Palace.
      EVERY WEEK
      The Bonus Events system consists of a rotating schedule of different activities, currently scheduled to run each week beginning on Tuesdays. Each Bonus Event grants a passive bonus to a particular game activity and offers a once-per-event quest with a noteworthy reward for accomplishing a related goal. The in-game calendar can serve as your one-stop reference for the event schedule. The Adventure Guide also offers a direct link to active Bonus Events, allowing you to easily accept any associated quests.

      Begin your journey by visiting the embassy in Orgrimmar or Stormwind once Visions of N’Zoth goes live.

      The remasters and upscales keep on coming, as we have the Burning Crusade's intro cinematic in up to 8K resolution now!
      While BC is my favorite expansion ever, I was never a fan of the cinematic, as it's just a collection of various clips that don't have much of anything to do with Illidan's narration, until the very end. Obviously the two new races deserved screen time, but we didn't even get to see the Dranei's ship(s) in there, and then it's straight on to random battle clips. It obviously takes its cue from the Vanilla cinematic, as far as the clips go, but where it worked for Vanilla, which was simply setting the stage for the world itself, it falls a little flat here. But at least it does end on a high note, with the green horned one making a proper appearance.

      We have more Ivan Kuzkin goodness for you today, as he's put together a highlight reel of his 2019 Arena cinematic footage!
      We'll also be taking a look at his previous PvP videos, including a really old one from 4 years ago which is particularly impressive (and longer). Here's "The Rhythm of Chaos":
      And here's two earlier video trailers for the 2019 spring and fall seasons:
       
      Impressive stuff as always. Which cinematic would you wish IKedit would remaster next? Or should he go back to his earlier class series or other original machinimas?

      Even though the Mighty Caravan Brutosaur is going away in Shadowlands, Blizzard has no intent to remove the Auction House vendor from this mount and they removed the Mystic Birdhat's Reforging from the Grand Expedition Yak only because Reforging was removed from the game.
      Mighty Caravan Brutosaur will be limited to the Black Market Auction House in Shadowlands and Blizzard today dispelled rumors about the removal of the AH vendor from the mount.

      Trying to figure out where these people keep getting this idea that the AH vendor is being removed from the mount because that has been said nowhere and yet people are acting like this is common knowledge.
      We want to be perfectly clear on this – we do not intend to remove the AH vendor from this mount, especially when some players put in a great deal of effort to acquire this mount specifically for that functionality. Of course, we remember that we removed the Mystic Birdhat’s Reforging from the Reins of the Grand Expedition Yak, but that was because we removed Reforging from the game.
      The Mighty Caravan Brutosaur is something that fundamentally alters players’ flow around the world, and it’s a unique convenience, but it’s certainly not essential. We’ve seen how luxury mounts like the Reins of the Traveler's Tundra Mammoth started out as something special and rare: a repair vendor wherever you are! They were originally ultra-exclusive and mostly purchased by guild banks for convenient raid use, but then became increasingly commonplace due to gold inflation over time.
      We think that a moderate amount of gold inflation is healthy. It ensures that new or returning players can catch up and participate in server economies without having to put in a herculean effort to avoid being priced out of essential goods. In this case, we want to ensure that in the long run, years from now, we don’t find ourselves looking around and seeing AH mounts that are as common as repair mounts are today.
