Another reset has arrived (for the US at least) and it's time to check out what's ahead this week in BfAzeroth. We start off with this weekend's high-flying micro-holiday:

Spring Balloon Festival

Spring Balloon Festival  [May 10-12]

Several of Azeroth’s characters – some of whom you might recognize – are giving tours of Azeroth in their hot air balloons. You’ll enjoy their commentary and interact with other citizens as you take in the scenery.

Weekly Bonus Event

Then we have a PvP event featuring a whole lot of Battlegrounding:

Seven Days on the Battlegrounds

All this week, heading to the Battlegrounds will net you some extra Honor along with bonus loot for completing this week’s quest. To enter the fray, open Group Finder (hotkey: "I") and then select the Player vs. Player tab. Next choose Quick Match, select Random Battlegrounds or Random Epic Battlegrounds, and hit the Join Battle button—you’ll be matched up with other players and sent to one of these 12 battlegrounds:

  • Alterac Valley
  • Arathi Basin
  • Battle for Gilneas
  • Deepwind Gorge
  • Eye of the Storm
  • Isle of Conquest
  • Seething Shore
  • Silvershard Mines
  • Strand of the Ancients
  • Temple of Kotmogu
  • Twin Peaks
  • Warsong Gulch
Weekly Quest

Before you get started, Chronicler Shoopa in Zuldazar and Chronicler Toopa in Boralus have a quest for you. You can also pick up the quest from within the Adventure Guide. Win four random Battlegrounds, and you’ll be rewarded with 5 Marks of Honor and a Radiant Azerite Core token (base 750 AP).

Battleground Buff

This week you gain 50% more Honor in Battlegrounds.

A New Event 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.

Call to Arms

This week's Call to Arms is set in Nazmir where you can get some Conquest and 75 rep with the 7th Legion or The Honorbound by killing 10 players with War Mode on.

        Update: the hotfix has gone live.

        It seems matching of things, be it colors or shapes or whatever, isn't exactly Blizzard's strong suit, as there's a hotfix coming to the latest of these types of quests. The Runelocked Chest world quests in Nazjatar (that you have to unlock - check out our zone guide to find out how) are being tweaked so you don't have to match colors in a row but instead just complete a specified total number of matches. So you don't need to match 5 in a row, but instead let's say match 2 in a row 5 times, which is much easier to do.

        We’re adjusting the “Runelocked Chest” World Quests with a hotfix that changes the requirement from matching colors in a row to completing a specified total number of matches.
        I’m not sure how long this is going to take to change, but we’ll have it noted for you in our hotfixes list.

        Here come the inaugural hotfixes for Patch 8.2 and they're not as huge as the can usually be with a new patch! We have a reduction in points needed for a win in the Nazjatar PvP event, cursed items' negative effects have been reduced, combat allies will show back up in Nazjatar after a rezone and a lot more!
        June 26 (Source)
        Player versus Player
        The total number of points required for a faction to win the Battle for Nazjatar War Mode event reduced to 3000 (was 10,000). Quests and World Quests
        Players will no longer need to relog to turn in the quest "Saving Corin". Players can now turn in “Scouting the Pens” to Neri. World
        Players can no longer loiter at the teleport location for the Heart of Azeroth quest line in Highmountain. Cursed items found in Nazjatar will now take longer to affect your character, and the detrimental effects have been reduced. Fixed a bug where being mounted while interacting with Arcane Device would cause visual issues. Prince Wiggletail is now easier to defeat. Moved certain Chitterspine crabs in Bitterstone Cove that were out of line of sight behind the water wall. Duration of Glimmershell Fluid reduced to 2 minutes (was 30 seconds). Upon re-entering the zone, previously selected combat allies will once again join your side in Nazjatar. Weeping Sanya now spawns upstairs so she no longer interferes with the puzzle World Quest in the same building. Due to many harsh lessons learned from gravity, we are increasing the "Slow Fall" spell duration obtained from the top of Kal'methir Citadel from 15 seconds to 30.

        The Crossroads cutscene takes place after the Stay of Execution Scenario of Patch 8.2. This article contains spoilers.
        Baine Bloodhoof has been trapped by Sylvanas and the Heroes of both factions work together to save him in the latest chapter of the War Campaign. Jaina probably helped saved Baine, because he turned in her raised brother Derek to the Alliance. It appears that Thrall, Saurfang, and Baine forge an alternative to Sylvanas' Horde, and we will need to wait what Sylvanas is up to in the latest content update. Remember, that she wields Xal'atath, Blade of the Black Empire and we still need to determine her role in the major conflict against N'Zoth. Here's the cutscene uploaded by MMO-Champion.
