BfA Season 2 Ending "Soon" + 8.2 Release Next Week?!

Recommended Posts

Here comes the end of season announcement, with the usual "soon" as the timeframe. We'll be having an off-season this time around, which will presumably be taking place during the first 2 weeks of patch 8.2 as we wait for Season 3, which might mean that Rise of Azshara is coming as soon as "soon" arrives, which could be as soon as next week! Ok, too many soons there, apologies. I may be a bit optimistic about the release date timeframe, but it seems logical that a "soon" announcement could mean 1 week, and the 2 week off-season is the gap between 8.2 launching and Season 3 starting.

In any case, we won't have to wait too long to find out.

Heads up! The current season of activities in Mythic Keystone Dungeons and PvP is ending soon.

This will mean an end to all players’ opportunities to earn seasonal rewards and titles, as well as the end of seasonal rankings for BFA Season 2.

For two weeks following the end-of-season, we will have an off-season. During that two weeks period, Mythic Keystone dungeons will still be playable using Season 2 affixes and rewards, but their seasonal achievements will no longer be available. In PvP during that two week period, players still queue for rated PvP and earn appropriate rewards, but the PvP leaderboards will be locked.

Good luck fighting to a glorious finish of the season!

Whilst that would be appreciated to see 8.2 sooner, surely testing can't be finished already? Or are they sticking with the "Beta for Azeroth" thinking...

They might as well extend it if testing on the PTR is not finished.  Blizzard hinting that 8.2 is going to be up and ready by the time Square Enix releases Shadowbringers is not quite plausible.   A July release seems more ideal than a June one.

Commercially it would be good to release before Shadowbringers, though, to get people busy and not thinking about swapping to FFXIV anymore.

almost 100% sure they are keeping 8.2 back so it will line up with the FF14 xpac release (Blizz do *filtered* stuff like that all the time). so 8.2 will come out either the 25th (3days befor the prelaunch for Shadowbringers) OR July 2nd (the day of Shadowbringers release).

how about we wait till blizzard actually release's the date for 8.2. 

If you pre-order you can play the game June 28th and if you decide to wait you can play July 2nd.  2 new jobs will be introduced: Gunbreaker (Tank) and Dancer(Ranged DPS).  Along with several other jobs being modified with skill and animation changes to them once the expansion is released.

When is Shadowbringers releasing? It wouldn't be the first time they've pushed a release to coincide with a big release from FFXIV.

it drops july 2nd on a tuesday..so knowing how blizz operates probably same day or week before

      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!

Ny’alotha, the Waking City N'Zoth the Corruptor Azeroth's Radiance now properly restores Sanity to players who are under the effects of an Immunity spell on all difficulties.

      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!

      We've had small hotfixes before, but these may just be a contender for shortest ever!
