It's time to find out what awaits us in Patch 8.2.5 which is now available for playtesting on Public Test Realms.

Welcome to our Patch 8.2.5 content hub. We will be frequently updating it with links to our latest news coverage.

Patch 8.2.5 Release Date Speculuation

You can now pre-download Patch 8.2.5 ahead of release through the Battle.net app.

Official Patch Notes

To learn more about what's coming in Patch 8.2.5, check out the official patch notes.

Allied Races

While no Allied Races have been confirmed for Patch 8.2.5, we're speculating that Blizzard is adding Mechagnomes and the Vulpera of Vol'dun this time around.

New Goblin and Worgen Models

Blizzard is adding new models for both races introduced back in Cataclysm. Blizzard confirmed that there will be no Heritage Armor in 8.2.5.

Celebrate 15 Years of Warcraft

November 2019 marks the 15th anniversary of World of Warcraft, and players who log in during the event period will receive a celebration package in the mail with a Lil' Nefarian pet and other in-game goodies. Throughout the duration of the event, you’ll be able to participate in three unique raids with iconic encounters from past expansions along with an old-school-inspired Alterac Valley battleground. Players who defeat all nine bosses in the raid wings will receive the Obsidian Worldbreaker Obsidian Worldbreaker, a Black Dragonflight mount inspired by Deathwing. Players who participate in Alterac Valley will receive a new anniversary event currency which can be exchanged for two new mounts: the Stormpike Battle Charger Stormpike Battle Charger (Alliance) and the Frostwolf Snarler Frostwolf Snarler (Horde).

Honeyback Harvester (Bee Mount)

Alliance players will finally be able to get their hands on the long-awaited Bee mount (PH Bee Mount Honeyback Harvester)

New Timewalking Raid: Firelands

When Cataclysm Timewalking is active, max-level players will be able to form raid groups and enter the Sulfuron Spire once more. As with previous Timewalking raids (Black Temple, Ulduar), your gear and power are scaled to the challenge, and all the bosses and rewards you expect lie in wait.

Party Sync

Blizzard is experimenting with a new mode in the forthcoming patch that makes it easier for players in a party to do quests and play together: Party Sync. When players activate Party Sync, everyone in the party becomes aligned to the same quest state, including phases. By mousing over a quest in your tracker, you can see who is on the quest, what their progress is, and who’s ready to turn in the quest. There’s something else we’re going to try out on the PTR, a “replay” quest feature. This will allow players who have already completed certain quests to replay those quests with their friends for rewards that are appropriate to their current level, regardless of the original level of the quest.

They're also relaxing level restrictions on queueing for instanced content with your friends. This allows lower-level players to queue for content in their level range, and higher-level players can choose to join them by having their level scaled down while they’re in the instance. This feature will be available for dungeon instances for PTR Week 1, with PvP instances being flagged in the following weeks. Please note that unlike Timewalking, when your level is scaled down via Party Sync you will temporarily lose access to abilities and powers (such as Azerite traits) with requirements that exceed your reduced level.

Recruit A Friend Returns

Coming in 8.2.5 is a revamped Recruit A Friend system. If you have active game time you’ll be able to recruit your friends—both brand-new to the game and returning champions—to share in your adventures. To do so, you’ll be able to use a new URL generation tool to create a custom link to give to your friends. By following the link, you’ll be connected to each other and will be able to see if they have purchased game time, resulting in rewards for you! For each month your recruits have active game time, you’ll earn a new reward such as unique pets, mounts, game time and more. These rewards unlock per month and scale with how many months your recruits have subscribed for. And, of course, with Party Sync you’ll be able to journey with your friends on any of your characters. We’ll have more information about Recruit A Friend rewards before 8.2.5 release.

The Story Continues...

We datamined new models for Wrathion, Valeera, Zekhan, and Calia Menethil in 8.2.5 Build 31337. Wrathion is part of the story in the new patch and he's involved in a Karazhan Scenario and we also found a new Hearthstone Tavern in the game.

Phone Login

In Patch 8.2.5, you can use your phone to log into the game.

Battle Pets

New butterfly pets and the anniversary battle pet Lil' Nefarian await in 8.2.5!

      The Valdrakken Inn contains a secret room with a private bartender who sells drinks!
      When you enter the Valdrakken Inn, go to the statue located at the back and perform the /kneel emote.


      This will teleport you to a secret room with a private bartender.

      There's a barkeeper named Kritha who sells Enchanted Argali Tenderloin, Azure Leywine, Critter Kebab, and Emerald Dreamtime. You can also set your Hearthstone here.

      There's an NPC in Valdrakken that lets you watch all 3 Dragonflight Legacies.
      She's called Storidormi and is found at 60, 42 (upstairs in the Seat of the Aspects).

      You can watch the following Legacy cinematics:

      Here's an easy way to obtain Item Level 366 starter gear in Dragonflight.
      Make sure War Mode is turned on. If it isn't, visit Stormwind/Orgrimmar, press "N", and Enable War Mode in the bottom right corner of the UI.

      In Valdrakken, visit Gladiator's Refuge at (entrance at 40.7 44.69) and turn right as you enter. You will see Fieldmaster Emberath <War Mode Quartermaster>, selling Item Level 366 gear for Bloody Tokens.

      How Much Bloody Tokens Does the Gear Cost?
      Helm, Legs, and Chest cost 500 Bloody Tokens. Shoulders, Gloves, and Feet cost 350 Bloody Tokens. Cloaks, Bracers, and Belt cost 200 Bloody Tokens. Weapons: 400 Bloody Tokens (One-Hand), 800 (Two-Hand). Drakebreaker's Set Bonuses
      Wearing 2/4/6 pieces of Drakebreaker's GGear activates the following set bonuses:
      (2) Set: Versatility increased by 105. (4) Set: When you are stunned, harden your resolve, absorbing up to 51,779 damage for 10 sec. Cannot occur more than once every 2 min. (6) Set: Killing enemy players grants Breaker's Frenzy, increasing versatility and movement speed by 2%. Can stack up to 10 times. Drakebreaker's Gear can be further upgraded to Item Level 385 with Trophy of Strife.

      You will also need the lower item-level version of the item you'd like to upgrade.
      How to Get Bloody Tokens?
      Blood Tokens come from World Quests in Dragonflight. Look at the World Map, which quests will reward them.

      Six levels to go for Doubleagent in Dragonflight. The Neutral Pandaren is aiming to reach Level 70 with Herbalism and Mining without leaving the Wandering Isle or choosing a faction.
      Doubleagent has reached Level 64 about 9 hours ago, I image he's already at 64.5 or so. Getting 50XP per node is really insane and his dedication truly admirable.

      Hunter players can unlock Ottuk Taming in Dragonflight, and here are the requirements.
      Wowhead has discovered the source of Ottuk Taming in the Dragonflight expansion, which was shrouded in mystery. The latest Hunter pet addition belongs to the Rodent family.
      Taming Ottuk is tied to Iskaara Tuskarr Renown. You must reach Level 11 to unlock the Questline: The Chieftain's Duty. The quest starts with Sudden Isolation from Murik in Iskaara. While the Iron Is Hot, the final quest, where you slay Zhurtan the Riverboiler in the Waking Shores, rewards Ottuk Taming.  The unlock is account-wide, so all Hunters on your account will have access to it once unlocked.
