Ji'arak

This mighty pterrordax has a roost high up in the mountains of Zuldazar, where the air is too thin for most lungs to draw breath, and life struggles to take hold. Occasionally she descends upon the swamps below in search of heartier meals to bring back to her brood.

Chart a course across Kul Tiras and Zandalar for this week’s Bonus Event – World Quests.

THIS WEEK

All week, open your map (default hotkey-"m") and select any of the Kul Tiras or Zandalar regions to view the World Quests available to you. To find out more about each World quest, simply hover your mouse over a World Quest on the map to see what tasks are needed to complete it, the rewards you’ll receive, and the time remaining that the quest is available to you.

Look for the following all week long:

  • Chronicler Toopa in Boralus or Chronicler Shoopa in Zuldazar has a quest for you—The World Awaits. You can also start the quest from within the Adventure Guide (Shift-"J").
    • Quest requirement: Complete 20 World Quests in Kul Tiras or Zandalar
    • Reward: 1,000 War Resources
  • Passive buff: +50% to Reputation gains from World Quests

If you’ve been looking to impress some emissaries, this is the week to do it!

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.

Noblegarden (April 22nd - April 29th)

Noblegarden is here and if you're working on the What a Long, Strange Trip It's Been What a Long, Strange Trip It's Been meta, don't forget to check out our updated Noblegarden guide!

Volunteer Guard Day (April 28th)

On this day, the denizens of Azeroth and Draenor take some time to celebrate the hard work that their guards perform. /Salute a guard to show you care!

      Visions of N'Zoth is Battle for Azeroth's final major content patch, where we take the battle to N'Zoth himself and visit Ny'alotha. Our hub covers everything you need to know about Patch 8.3 and helps you stay on track if you haven't been playing the game for a while.
      Patch 8.3 Release Date
      Blizzard revealed after BlizzCon that Patch 8.3 will go live in January 2020.
      Game Director Ion Hazzikostas talked about Visions of N'Zoth in the latest Content Preview on October 7. We learned pretty much everything about the new patch, and in the following section, you're going to find its main features:
      Assaults
      Invasions return to the game once more, and this time, they're called Assaults. The Vale of Eternal Blossoms and Uldum will be periodically under assault by N'Zoth's forces, and your goal is to drive them back by completing quests and interacting with various objectives to complete the "emissary." Blizzard uses technology and everything they've learned from Mechagon and Nazjatar in this new iteration of Assaults to ensure dynamic replayability. Assaults are mandatory if you want to enter Horrific Visions.
      Initial Preview of Assaults in Visions of N'Zoth Horrific Visions
      Described as alternate realities where N'Zoth's power is ascendant, these are 1-5 player "scenarios" of Stormwind and Orgrimmar, where you need to complete various objectives for rewards. Horrific Visions revolve around a new mechanic called Sanity, which starts draining as soon as you enter a Horrific Vision. Your goal is to complete as many side objectives as possible and defeating the mini-boss before your Sanity is completely depleted.
      To help you with that, we've got Wrathion with a new Legendary Cloak and a Titanic Research Archive for Horrific Visions with perks that gradually trivialize the feature. You will be also able to buy various items from Wrathion after completing the Black Empire intro questline.
      Wrathion Selling Various Items in Patch 8.3 Ny'alotha, the Waking City
      We will be facing N'Zoth in Ny'alotha, the new twelve-boss raid located in Uldum. It comes with a raid skip quest after you defeat the first boss and new sets up for grabs:
      Ny'alotha Cloth Sets Preview Ny'alotha Leather Sets Preview Ny'alotha Mail Sets Preview Ny'alotha Plate Sets Preview You can check out N'Zoth's real size here.
      We've also covered the continuation of the story in Patch 8.3 and what happens in the raid in the articles below:
      New Forsaken Leadership in Patch 8.3 (Spoilers) Azshara's Bargain and the Key to Defeating N'Zoth (Spoilers) I'lgynoth's Whispers in Patch 8.3 (Analysis) Tyrande Whisperwind VO (Patch 8.3) N'Zoth's in-game model has been updated multiple times and you can check out N'Zoth's VO as well if you're interested what the Old God has to say based on the latest sound files.
      Rewards Updates
      Visions of N'Zoth comes with two new factions, six new Essences, a brand new Mythic Season, a new Seasonal affix, Profession updates, and more that we'll cover soon. On top of that, Essences from Mechagon and Nazjatar will be easier to acquire for alts. You can also add your own sockets to gear which currently does not have any, and more.
      Add Sockets to Your Gear in Patch 8.3 Heart of Azeroth will have a new Minor slot, two Stamina nodes, the maximum level increased to 85 (was 70). Coming in a later PTR update, Blizzard will be adding an infinite progression slot to aid you against N'Zoth's corruption at max level.
      New Factions
      Uldum and Vale of Eternal Blossoms will be under attack by N'Zoth's forces and both zones host new factions. You'll learn more about the Rajani in Pandaria and Uldum Accord resides in Ramkahen.
      Rajani & Uldum Accord Overview New Allied Races: Vulpera & Mechagnomes
      Another pair of Allied Races will become available in Visions of N'Zoth. Alliance players will be able to recruit Mechagnomes, and their Horde counterpart are the Vulpera of Vol'dun.
      Official Mechagnomes & Vulpera Preview Mechagnomes & Vulpera Racials Mechagnomes & Vulpera Unlock Requirements Vulpera Heritage Armor Preview Mechagnome Heritage Armor Preview Mechagnome & Vulpera Dance Animations Vulpera Tidbits: Racial Mount, Shaman Totems, Hunter Pet New Heritage Armor: Goblins & Worgen
      Goblins and Worgen received new models and animations in Patch 8.2.5, but no Heritage Armor, which is added in Patch 8.3.
      Goblin & Worgen Heritage Armor Sets Preview Auction House Overhaul
      The Auction House will be completely revamped. No more lag caused by the system being clogged with single stacks. Stackable items are no longer purchased or sold in stacks; copper is no longer displayed in the Auction House, but used for calculations. If you regularly forget the name of goods, you can create a shopping list, and more!
      Auction House Revamp Preview The Alternative of Titanforging
      The Corrupted Items System is the alternative to Warforging and Titanforging in Patch 8.3. Items that would Warforge/Titanforge will drop with a +Corruption stat which grants side effects at various Corruption Levels.
      Everything We Know About the Corrupted Items System So Far Cleansing Corrupted Items Class Changes
      No patch would be complete without some class changes, and you can find all class changes planned for Visions of N'Zoth here.
      Allied Race & Pandaren Death Knights
      We found encrypted sound files of Bolvar and Mograine together with Death Knight creature textures for Allied Races and the Pandaren, and new Death Knight Swords of the Ebon Blade.It was confirmed at BlizzCon that all races will be able to roll Death Knights in Patch 8.3. The new Allied Races Death Knights will have a slightly updated starting experience similar to intros of Allied Races.
      Decrypted Bolvar & Darion Mograine Sound Files Improved Eye Glow for Night Elves and Death Knights Mythic Season 4 Season
      A brand new Season awaits in Visions of N'Zoth and players will be able to earn a title and a mount!
      New Mythic Season 4 Achievements & Rewards Quaking Affix Changes New Mounts
      As usual, with every content update, multiple mounts are coming with placeholder descriptions, sources, and whatnot.
      Alpaca Mounts - Presumably, new reputation mounts available for purchase at Exalted. Chalcedony Cloud Serpent - A new recolor of the existing serpent, possibly tied to the Assault on Vale. N'Zoth Serpent - New Stormsong Valley Rare Mount from the Adherent of the Abyss. Aqir Flying Mount Ahead of the Curve N'Zoth Mount: Uncorrupted Voidwing Mythic N'Zoth Mount (Ny'alotha Allseer), Glory of the Ny'alotha Raider (Wriggling Parasite) Island Expedition Vendors
      In Patch 8.3, you will be able to purchase Island-specific and Invasion-specific crates for Dubloons.
      New Dubloon Vendors Selling Island Expedition and Invasion Crates 3 New World Bosses
      Blizzard is adding three new world bosses to the game, which drop item level 445 loot.
      New World Bosses in Visions of N'Zoth Miscellaneous
      Other minor things planned for Patch 8.3 include:
      A new PvP event where players can serve N'Zoth, similar to Talon's Vengeance. Heroic difficulty for the Darkshore Warfront. Division of Operation: Mechagon into two wings, each with Heroic and Mythic Keystone difficulties. Darkmoon Arcade, allowing you to play your favorite mini-games at the Darkmoon Faire. Deepwind Gorge updated to be a capture point map. New Battle Pets and Pet Battle Dungeon - Blackrock Depths. New Story Quests: Rise of N'Zoth ...and more! We'll be periodically updating this hub with more details!
      Vision of N'zoth is the final major content patch of BfA, and here's our hub with everything you need to know.

      Wrathion will be selling three items in Patch 8.3 that you can purchase with the new currencies.

      Once you complete the introductory questline for Horrific Visions you can talk to Wrathion in the Chamber of Heart and buy the following items:
      Vessel of Horrific Visions for 1,000 Coalescing Visions. The item is required to enter Horrific Visions. Gouged Eye of N'Zoth for 25,000 Corrupted Mementos. The item can be used to add a socket to an item of your choice which currently does not have one. Wicked Swarmer (Aqir mount) for 100,000 Corrupted Mementos. Note that the cost of items is not final and may change at any time.

      This week's 8.3 PTR build 32489 comes with a new item which lets you add sockets to your gear.
      While we don't know much about the item at this time, Gouged Eye of N'Zoth lets you add a socket to an item which currently does not have it.

      We have another combo hotfix edition, with both retail and CLassic getting tweaks. The 15th anniversary continues to get fixes, with tweaks to the WotLK side of the Memories of Azeroth, as well as the achievement for finishing the raids being account wide and a few other changes.
      Meanwhile on Classic a very specific buff has been reigned in to the area it was supposed to be in, as Marshal Windsor got his frenzying range reduced.
      November 13 (source)
      WoW's 15th Anniversary
      Spellstone Delight now breaks upon taking damage. Reduced the speed at which Defile would increase in area and damage during Memories of Azeroth: Wrath of the Lich King. The achievement Memories of Fel, Frost and Fire is now account-wide. The Obsidian Worldbreaker mount will now be immediately rewarded once a player earns Memories of Fel, Frost and Fire (previously it was delivered via in-game mail). WoW Classic
      The Windsor’s Frenzy buff is again properly restricted to the small area around Marshal Windsor. Developers’ note: This correction restores the buff’s functionality to its original 1.12 behavior.

      On Friday, you can join members of the WoW team on the Broxigar realm in the 8.3 PTR for the Deepwind Gorge and Teeming Island Brawl testing.
      Deepwind Gorge will become a capture-point map in 8.3. Teeming Island Brawl are essentially 10v10 PvP Islands with all the usual rewards. Testing starts at 10:00 a.m. PST!
      Blizzard (Source)
      On Friday, November 15, starting at 10:00 a.m. PST, join us on the Broxigar realm in the Visions of N’Zoth PTR for two updated PvP experiences. We’re going to playtest:
      Deepwind Gorge Redesigned
      In Visions of N’Zoth, Deepwind Gorge has been redesigned. It’s now a capture-point map with five nodes to fight over.
      For this playtest, log into the PTR and open Group Finder (default hotkey: i), then switch to the Player vs. Player tab on the bottom of the window and queue for a quick match in the Specific Battleground Deepwind Gorge.
      After you’ve gorged on Deepwind, please return here and look for our feedback thread.
      Teeming Islands Brawl
      These are 10v10 PvP Islands that you can queue for as a Brawl. All appropriate rewards from doing Islands are available, so you can finish both the Brawl weekly and your Island weekly for Azerite in this one.
      The map selection will only be the larger islands. For this PTR test, we’re using Havensworth and Jorundall.
      To playtest this with us, log into the PTR and open Group Finder (default hotkey: i), then select the active PvP Brawl and queue up. Afterward, please come back to this forum and look for our Teeming Islands Brawl feedback thread.

      We look forward to seeing you on Broxigar the PTR at 10:00 a.m. PST on Friday, and we really appreciate all of your testing and feedback!
