The new expansion is upon us, and the changes have been revealed.

Level to 120 in continents of legend.
BKJ2XYS3YIXF1509567053378.jpg

For Alliance, the kingdom of Kul Tiras. Birth place of Jaina Proudmoore.
1WFCSVPL0ZM81509567058126.jpg

For the Horde, the Zandalar Empire.

Level up a necklace of great power entrusted to you by Magni Bronzebeard. This artifact gains power through the blood of Azeroth itself, found and harvested throughout the world.

Allied_races.jpg?version=cd4f77b2b0ad313270e2570df83ca639


New Allied races join the fight. Gain early access by gaining reputation with certain WoW: Legion reputations. New races are able to be unlocked through completing certain requirements in BFA itself: Mag'Har orcs and Dark Iron dwarfs.

Level your new character through old content in a new way. Classic zones scale up to 40 levels, while expansion content can be rearranged to your liking, allowing you to level 60-70 in Warlords of Draenor content for example.
82JRPLYD5CNM1509567052199.jpg

New islands packed with fierce challenges that you and your friends can complete daily. After one island is complete, the island is randomized afterwards. Face a new challenge every time!

il_570xN.823092668_fqzn.jpg?version=0

Fight against other players to create bases and lay siege against other player fortifications in the siege maps inspired by Warcarft RTS games.

Join social groups across server. Transfer to another server and still want to play with your old guild mates? Join them in a guild like setting no matter where they play.

Brand new PVP instancing. Players can join same faction player groups and PVP on that player's server. This ties into a new feature called 'War Mode', where players toggle PVP on in cities and fight against opposite faction players who are also flagged. PVPers gain 10% XP from quests and kills with this toggled on.

Dueler's Guild is a new PVP mode where players who are flagged in the city can take part in duels against other players in Dueler's Guild. Play until you are defeated for prizes daily by fighting through 3 players in a row, your cooldowns will not reset.

Battle for Azeroth launches August 14th 2018

    Yeah the other one just hit 100 pages and was locked.

    In continuing with tradition, got another leggo token last night, and get the next worst in slot leggo. It's really fucking annoying working from the bottom on every character. Give me best in slot like once ffs. Still no argus trinkets either, here's hoping this week can change that... I might just say fuck it and level alts and pvp until the expansion because it's just tedious raiding and getting nothing from it. I kind of want a mage so i can shoot frost lasers at people.

    Got my priest to 110, working on finishing his class hall, played my DK a little bit just to get the swing of the buttons. Oh god moves that hit more than one target at a time? Being able to damage a boss while also not dying? my god its beautiful.

    I would like some money because these are artisanal nuggets of wisdom philistine.

    You should see Shadow priests on the beta, they have quit a few aoe options now. DKs are a lot of fun, they still havent done the frost rework for bfa yet though. The real trick is playing holy priest and doing BGs though. After you unlock some of the honor talents it's like godmode. There are like 4 ways to go immune/semi immune to everything and there are a bunch of instant heals.

    Well I'm really just playing the priest to unlock the class mount. I'm down to them, druid and dk. Then I'll have all order halls all class mounts

    Shadowpriests got some good quality of life changes such as you don't need to dot everything for the void eruption to hit them. They do now however have to be in a 10 yard radius of the main target but much more of a normal AOE so you can burst on packs a lot quicker now. More on demand aoe ability as well so less setup time for small trash packs.

    I'm definitely curious to what the new 90 Shadow talent is going to be, since it's still MIA. Especially since it's on the Lingering Insanity/Mindbender tier.

    Dark Void, the AOE spell that slaps a SWP on everything it hits, looks like it's going to be fun.

    Well one of them is behind the suramar quest line, which if you haven't done it is a rep grind combined with instances and a raid finish.

    But yeah nightborn are the best race for starting with the Suramar chain finished and the rep exalted. Only allied race to have their default faction exalted.

    Amazon had put up several pages for the new book, and the lore community pretty much flipped out over it.
    Calia Menethil reappears, tries to use Forsaken who had families in Stormwind, etc to declare a coup against Sylvanas and gets killed for it.

    She gets rezzed as a Lightforged Undead, because that's how she wanted to come back.

    the problem with that mechanic in LFR is every other difficulty trains you very hard to point every other combo move away and tanks always forget it's LFR and not to spin him or swap aggro

    or get a co-tank who doesn't taunt back randomly for no reason with 0.2sec left on the cast

    thank god you don't need two tanks for that fight

    Honestly blizzard loves to do shit like the soak on kil jadean where you do the opposite of how most fights treat thing on ground. Its where I wish encounters would stop being such "gotchas" because it just leads to frustration.

    "don't not stand in the fire" is one of their more common raid mechanics, I don't mind it in general. KJ's meteors specifically were terrible though, because of the way they happened so frequently, required the whole raid to be paying attention and actively dropping what they were doing to take care of, and had a very high chance of causing a wipe if someone missed just one.

    Not to mention that the entirety of ToS was about soaking things so by the time you got to KJ if you didn't know you were supposed to soak them then you're either AFK or an idiot. Both of which describe the typical LFR raider pretty well, so I guess that explains it.

    I just don't like the lack of communication in the LFR to help explain the fight or a heads up in the guide
    But then I don't like raiding as I just get bored after a certain time doing it

    the "problem" with meteor soaking on KJ really was that they made the penalty for failing too severe (at least on normal and heroic), given the semi-random nature of the mechanic. Mechanics that're that variable in terms of how they play out from attempt to attempt shouldn't have raid-wiping consequences for minor failures, outside of maybe mythic.

    Small meteors should have been tuned in a way that required the raid do them right most of the time, but could be cooldowned through if necessary. On heroic a missed small soak was essentially always just a wipe, aside from way overgeared raids that'd already completed their prog

    Get in a +14 and below? Group runs like a well oiled machine

    Same group goes into a +15? Same group turns into a Zerg fest where the general idea seems to be to wear our the mobs by killing us too many times.

    Often, it’s the same group for both. Sigh.

    How does the PVP set distribution work? I know old ones are available via honor token, but what about the newest seasons? The blue paladin armor is really great and I would like to farm for it, but have no idea how to get it.
