Battle for Azeroth is World of Warcraft's Seventh expansion, following Legion.

Race to level 120 in two new islands that are separate for both the Horde and the Alliance.

The first Island is the Alliance's Kul Tiras, Birthplace of Jaina Proudmoore.

The second island is the home of the Zandalar tribe,

Aquire new items that grant increased power from minerals called Azureite. The dwarf Magni Bronzebeard entrusts you with a necklace and armor that will act like Artifact weapons did. These items will replace your Legion weapons, which will be replaced by normal ones through quests.

Unlock new Races by completing achievements, or gaining exalted with certain factions.

The allied races are for the alliance: Void Elves, Lightforged Dranei, Dark Iron Dwarves, and Kul Tiras humans.

The Horde races are: The Nightfallen, Highmountain Tauren, Mag Har Orcs, and the Zandalar Trolls.

Complete zone quest stories on your alts, Vanilla zones scale on level.

Explore islands with your friends for loot. Islands randomize every time you visit, face new challenges every time.

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

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.

    Blizzcon this year will have very light info for WoW.

    We will get 8.1 info, and probably panels about the art, music, voice actors, and such. But since in November when Blizzcon happens, BfA will only be like 3 months old, there won't be a whole lot of new WoW stuff to talk about.

    I think Diablo and Overwatch are going to dominate this year's Blizzcon.

    My predictions:
    Diablo 4
    Overwatch full expansion, with Blizzard's take on the Battle Royale genre

    It's because elves are super duper racist towards one another, and since the Nightborne basically think they are the perfected form of the Night Elves, those two are incompatible as friends.

    I don't think we're going to get Diablo 4 at Blizzcon. We're getting a content update for either Diablo 3 or Starcraft 2 or both. And yeah, 8.1 info on WoW. For Overwatch I think we're going to get some sort of animated short to help with the showing off of an upcoming content update or new feature. Not a big one because they just put some stuff out.

    Centrism is just the cowardly way to be a bigot w/o being explicit about it.

    Tyrande, after the Night Elves and High Elves coming to the aid of Thalyssra, after her city willingly joined the Legion: Look, given the track record of your people, we just want you to promise not to be evil.

    Thalyssra: I am deeply offended by this. Us, evil?

    A few weeks later, as part of the Horde, the Nightborne aide in an offensive war that slaughters thousands of civilians and burns down Teldrassil.

    Thalyssra, probably: Ha! That’ll teach you not to question our moral choices! For the Horde!

    I mean they won't have expansion levels of announcements at Blizzcon, but there is no reason they have nothing to say. They basically hinted at the last patch of Legion the blizzcon after its launch, which was an almost identical time after Legion came out vs BFA to this Blizzcon.

    If they DONT have a lot of info, that is like.... really concerning. Like WoD all over again levels of concerning.

    I mean, if what we have now is pretty much what WoW is at this point and they are winding down then fine. I would love to just consume the rest of what I like and finally do something about my "all other games" backlog.

    Tyrande is also a huge douchebag to the Nightbourne rebels and makes almost no distinction between them and the collaborators soooo

    Meanwhile Blood Elves show up and offer to sponsor them at a really good Mana Addicts Anonymous group that really helped them out.

    honestly there's a lot of reactions that we should see in response to the escalation of the lore but that's Too Much Writing so instead we just get Saurfang going WOAH WHAT THE CRAP

    Nightborne joining the horde is fine; they don't particularly like Tyrande et al and it was clear that their interaction with night/high elves during the rebellion was more an arrangement of convenience than anything

    the problem with the BfA storyline is that everyone who isn't sylvanas or an orc just kinda gets subsumed into the overall story; like are all the other member races/factions cool with burning teldrassil? Who knows, because the story doesn't really seem to be concerned about them at all

  • BahamutZEROBahamutZERO Registered User regular
    it's even worse than simply not showing her reaction, because thalyssra actually shows up and does things with you in the jailbreak scenario and acts like nothing's wrong, happy to be in the horde club, no second thoughts or misgivings here! completely doesn't matter to her. I guess that is just the characterization of the nightborne now by default due to lack of writing, they actually didn't give a damn about the night elves all along and tyrande was right to be hostile! whoops alliance is right again

    also WoW will have minimal stuff at blizzcon just because BfA is freshly out and they have other things to promote; there'll certainly be panels, but probably of the minor art/acting/design' variety rather than anything major

    I mean the only people we have really interacted with are:

    Rohkan-Trolls seem to give no shits because Trolls and most Elves don't like each other and he is kind of focused on his stuff
    Thalyssra-No real response, same with Occulus. My guess they didn't care? I don't know probably just ignored
    Rexar-Likes the Horde over the Alliance as one lets him live and do his stuff the other wants him dead. Straight up says he just doesn't want to deal with any of it and will do his job.
    Lillian Vos-Crazy
    Nathanos-Crazy and will follow Sylvanas off a cliff
    Garona-Again the Horde won't kill her, doesn't really ask questions, has some interactions with Nathanos that makes you think she doesn't like him but is in it for the Horde
    Saurfang-Sulking


    The rest we deal with are Zandalari who give 0 shits about the Night Elves.

    03x29di.png
  • DonnictonDonnicton Registered User regular
    I guess that is just the characterization of the nightborne allied races now by default due to lack of writing

    Remember, every allied race they add going forward is in theory another reaction that under normal circumstances they would have to account for, but what's more likely is that they just won't bother to write for them since the allied races are in large part meant as glorified cosmetic options so their relevance to the faction politics after they join is a non-factor.

    You couldn't get them to change their stance on this same writing hole back with the Pandaren faction leaders, I don't see why this would now be different with the allied races.

    Welp, looks like Blizz also didn't like the idea of the Battlefront being used as an immediate skip to 340 gear.

    The table now has a 320 ilvl requirement to go into the scenario. Of course this happens right when I get my monk to 120 :(

    I like the change to require 320 minimum. Wanna know why? Because if people could go in and skip the gap of 285ish to 340, it would invalidate crafting skills and selling those things at all to other players.
