Patch 8.2: Nazjatar (Zone Preview)

Recommended Posts

dcOpJNg.jpg

Nazjatar is now available for testing on 8.2 PTR and here are screenshots of the new zone!

Queen Azshara will lure both factions into Nazjatar, which is why the zone is surrounded by water walls and shipwrecks in the south. Nazjatar is about 2/3 the size of Argus.

Some parts resemble Zangarmarsh and the zone reuses Azshuna assets. We've taken multiple screenshots of the new zone at night. What do you think?

This zone looks amazing. I mean the old kaldorei buildings surely look dated and the pixelated floor textures haven't got any prettier either, but it's been a while that a zone appealed to me this much on the first sight. Maybe Howling Fjord in WotLK, but back then zones didn't had any other use than to level through them, so I' m looking forward for Nazjatar. If I'm not mistaken Prince Farondis should also return with this patch, so yay \o/ .

Looks great on a first glance, there's also some new World PvP mechanics reminiscent of old zone control in Western Plaguelands / TBC areas, trying it all out atm 🙂

Hopefully it won't feel as cramped as Argus, this is usually main issue with zones added after launch. Looks pretty nice though.

You make one step forward and suddenly 25 mobs come crawling out of the walls, all elites, and charge towards you.

After playing fully through the current PTR version it decidedly doesn't feel cramped at all, if anything there could be more enemy / point of importance density but there's a ton of architecture and different zones to go through, even on full minimum graphics.

What surprised me the most though, was not the storyline quests themselves (which were quite a bit shorter than I expected, maybe because they are not all in yet..?) but that at every step of the journey I would find something unexpected and special, such as a lost murloc who you bring to the faction hub and, it turns out, he sets up very special "murloc shops" with his friends, with whom you can play a trade mini-game somewhat reminiscent of the Zelda series' ones. Or killing about any rare mob, which besides the usual dull, pointless small bit of azerite, gives you a quest-starting item that takes you on a small exploration of the zone for an unusual objective, which is unlocked as "something to do in the zone" after you are done.

Essentially, there's a lot to discover and explore in Najzatar and I wonder how much time will pass until we discover all of it, there's sure to be secrets awaiting as well!

I think it's a good thing then, if zone isn't so crowded with mobs. For that reason I liked some of the old zones, as there was free space to travel and admire, and you weren't always pulling additional mobs when simply wanting to get from one point to another.

      The Darkshore Warfront is available now on Heroic difficulty for Alliance players, meaning it's time to get your piece of gear that is equivalent to Heroic Ny'alotha loot (item level 460).
      Alliance players have access to the Warfront: The Battle for Darkshore quest in Boralus that rewards 15 7th Legion Service Medals, one item level 460 gear piece, and Artifact Power.
      You can purchase the Sandy Nightsaber mount if you completed the Battle for Darkshore on Heroic difficulty (Heroic: War for the Shore) and have spare  350 7th Legion Service Medals.
      "A rare color for a nightsaber, and rarely seen, they are prized amongst huntresses."

      You can find out more information on all mounts by visiting our 8.3 Mounts Compendium.

      The beta opt-in support page has been recently updated and now would be a good time to opt in for Shadowlands Beta if you haven't done that already.
      Blizzard (Source)
      To put your name into the pool of candidates interested in beta testing for Shadowlands, sign up on the Shadowlands home page using the Beta Opt-In link at the top of the page.

      Signing up for beta does not guarantee you will be chosen to participate, but players who have not signed up to indicate interest cannot be chosen. Customer Support is not able to provide access to beta. Blizzard has released the first encrypted Shadowlands Alpha build earlier this week and added the forthcoming expansion to the Battle.net App Catalog, suggesting that Friends & Family Alpha is really close. Opt in for Shadowlands Beta by visiting the link below!

      Blizzard has shipped an encrypted build for Shadowlands Alpha, meaning it cannot be datamined just yet, but we're getting really close to the F&F Alpha announcement. 
      Earlier today, Blizzard added Shadowlands to the Battle.net App Catalog and now the first build has been shipped. Unfortunately, it is still encrypted, so it cannot be datamined at this time. You can learn more about Shadowlands in our overview in the meantime and stay tuned for Shadowlands Friends & Family Alpha!
