It seems 8.2.5 is indeed mere weeks, or even one week away as we just got the official content notes for the patch! From the Worgen and Goblin model updates, the 15th anniversary event with its mounts and pet, Recruit a Friend, new quests including the conclusion of the War Campaign, Party Sync, the Bee mount, Firelands timewalking and a whole lot more, 8.2.5 is shaping up to be a pretty big patch, despite it .5 nature! We also got some new info about new transmog options coming to the BMAH, some class changes as well as many bug fixes, Epic BG changes, and more.

For even more info you can check out our 8.2.5 hub as well.

The official update notes for the new content update are here.

New Character Models: Worgen and Goblins

First introduced in World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, worgen and goblins are getting some long-anticipated improvements to their character models. These updates touch on every aspect of how the worgen and goblins look—from their faces to their animations.

WoW 15th Anniversary Event

This November is the 15th anniversary of World of Warcraft, and we have some special things planned to commemorate the occasion.

Anniversary Gift

Players who log in during the event period will receive an Anniversary Gift in the mail, which includes a Lil' Nefarian battle pet, a Celebration Package that increases experience and reputation gains throughout the event, a reusable firework that can be used for the duration of the event, an item that teleports you to the Caverns of Time (usable only during the event), and other in-game goodies.

New Raids: Memories of Azeroth

Chromie has separated the strands of time, allowing you to go back and relive epic raid encounters from Burning Crusade, Wrath of the Lich King, and Cataclysm. Each of these limited-time raids will feature three iconic bosses, and they’ll be available as their own wings through the Raid Finder.

To enter the raid, you need a minimum item level of 380. Players who complete all three wings will receive the achievement Memories of Fel, Frost and Fire which grants the Obsidian Worldbreaker , a Black Dragonflight mount inspired by Deathwing.

Return to Alterac Valley of Olde

Run down your enemies, raze their fortifications, and exchange the tokens you loot from their corpses to summon mighty reinforcements in Korrak’s Revenge, a throwback Battleground inspired by the earliest days of Alterac Valley.

Players who participate in Korrak’s Revenge and complete the Alterac Valley of Olde achievement can earn two new mounts: the Stormpike Battle Ram Stormpike Battle Ram (Alliance) and the Frostwolf Snarler (Horde).

New Quests

Many new stories and adventures are now available across Azeroth.

The War Campaign Concludes

Tensions continue to rise between Saurfang, Anduin, and the Banshee Queen Sylvanas. Discover the fate of the Horde and Alliance in the final chapter of the War Campaign.

Magni Bronzebeard

With N'Zoth's imminent emergence, you must seek help from an unlikely ally: the Black Prince, Wrathion. Level 120 players should seek out Magni in the Chamber of Heart to continue the story and discover the Black Dragonflight’s whereabouts.

Making it Easier to Party Up with Friends

Introducing Party Sync

Party Sync is a new feature that makes it easier than ever for friends to party up and quest together. When players activate Party Sync, everyone in the party becomes aligned to the same quest state and phase. By mousing over a quest in your tracker, you can see who’s on a given quest, what their progress is, and who’s ready to turn it in. You’ll also have access to a “replay quest” feature that allows 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. Quests can be replayed for rewards once a day.

Relaxing Level Restrictions

We’ve also relaxed level restrictions, so lower-level players can queue for instanced content (such as Battlegrounds and dungeons) in their level range, and higher-level players can choose to join them by having their level scaled down. Please note that unlike Timewalking, when your level is scaled, you will temporarily lose access to abilities and powers (such as Azerite Traits and over-level spell, abilities, talents, and trinkets’ effects) with requirements that exceed your reduced level.

Recruit A Friend Returns

Ready to bring your friends to Azeroth and show them the ropes? Doing so is easier than ever with our revamped Recruit A Friend system! If you have active game time, you’ll be able to recruit up to 10 friends—both veterans who haven’t been subscribed for over two years and newcomers—to share in your adventures. Enjoy 50% bonus experience for faster leveling when you and your recruit are partied together and summon each other once every 30 minutes.

The new Recruit A Friend lets you generate a custom link that you can send to your friends. This link will help you connect with each other, and you’ll be able to see if they have purchased game time, which will lead to 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 each month and scale with the amount of time 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.

New Mount: Honeyback Harvester

Stormsong’s Beekeepers have discovered a new hive in town. Alliance players can work with Barry to locate the hive and court the favor of the Hivemother in order to earn the PH Bee Mount Honeyback Harvester mount—and both factions can earn several other bee-themed toys and items.

New Timewalking Raid: Firelands

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

Note that mounts do not benefit from mount equipment in battlegrounds or Arenas and that some do not benefit from mount equipment at all such as the Sky Golem.

Holiday Updates

Lunar Festival

Embark on an adventure around Kalimdor and the Eastern Kingdoms to complete the Rite of the Moon and help an old druid bless her Staff of Moonflowers. In return, she will enchant your flower crowns so they never die, and you can transmogrify them year-round!

I have to wonder at the irony of a patch that has a large focus on timewalking at a point where Classic is devouring the playercount on Retail.

To be fair, I feel that a huge chunk of that player base is because they already pay for WoW, but have no content left on retail. The leveling of classic is "new" because it's not been around for 9-ish years since Cataclysm. WoW players love WoW. I'll be curious to see the population data of Classic v. 8.3 retail when a new raid and grind drops.

It doesn't hurt to have some amount of time-walking to honor it too though because the game plays so incredibly differently. The combat of retail is more fluid (doesn't mean better or worse) because it does have a lot of polish on animations, effects, classes, and variety of spells used.

Agreed...I'm having a lot of fun in classic but retail is still my focus. Even more so when the patch drops.

That's due to anniversary stuff, like usual. People will get bored of classic, already majority of queues are gone.

I wonder how that "conclusion to war campaign" is going to play out. Does it mean that war between two factions is over and all focus will be on N'zoth, or it will continue in some other form (like Sylvanas' loyalists still being a thing and fighting both factions).

As someone who came back for only classic, I'm looking forward to seeing the AH stabilize when people who main retail go back tomorrow :D

      Allied Races and the Pandaren will be finally able to become Death Knights in the near future, as Blizzard added creature textures together with encrypted sound files for Bolvar Fordragon and Darion Mograine in 8.3 Build 32151.
      It seems Bolvar is going to forge a new line of Death Knights in Patch 8.3. Death Knight textures for all Allied Races (Including Lightforged Draenei) have been added to the game along with encrypted sound files for Bolvar Fordragon and Highlord Darion Mograine, who's likely going to narrate the new Death Knight intro. There's also an encrypted map of an area, which is likely the one of Icecrown Citadel.

      Datamined Pandaren Male Death Knight Texture
      It seems there's going to be a brand new Death Knight intro, but at this time, we don't know if the Allied Races are going to start at level 20 or 55 and how that's going to affect Heritage Armor acquisition.

      In this week's 8.3 Build 32151, Wrathion's Legendary Cloak has been renamed and updated to have a higher base item level.
      Experimental Blacktalon Shroud is now called Ashjra'kamas, Shrould of Resolve and the base item level is up to 445.
      The cloak's effect (Blacktalon's Experimental Protection) reduces the Sanity loss from all sources by a percentage, which is mandatory for completing Horrific Visions, as your Sanity bar depletes and the reduction allows you to stay there longer and earn better rewards. You'll upgrade the item level of the cloak with Horrific Cores up to a maximum item level of 475 at Rank 15.
      Rank Item Level Reduces Sanity by % 1 445 5% 2 445 8% 3 445 10% 4 445 13% 5 455 25% 6 455 28% 7 455 30% 8 455 33% 9 455 35% 10 465 50% 11 465 53% 12 465 55% 13 465 58% 14 465 60% 15 475 75% You can check out our initial preview of the cloak here and we've updated the article to include the latest changes.

      At Ranks 5 and 10, the cloak gets an enhanced appearance that is added to your transmog tab.
