The expansion is more than just a climatic chapter in the Alliance and Horde war, though. Battle for Azeroth adds numerous new gameplay mechanics and systems. From brand new playable Allied Races, through Island Expedition PvP scenarios, to the RTS-style Warfronts mode, there are plenty of bold new design decisions going on in this expansion.
New quests will keep you busy until the endgame, and then fresh dungeons and raids will occupy you for many hours after. The expansion is going to be huge. World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth will release on August 14, The final date was revealed by game director Ion Hazzikostas at a preview event, according to PC Gamer.
As with previous expansions, Battle for Azeroth will receive a pre-patch that will bridge the gap between Legion and the new storyline. These smaller conflicts will eventually erupt into the titular battle between Alliance and Horde players.
The most interesting social updates implemented in the pre-patch will be the introduction of realm and cross-realm communities, an extension of the guild system. All players get a baby Tortollan pet. As with previous expansions, Battle for Azeroth has a pre-patch that bridges the gap between Legion and the new storyline. All the new BfA features and content are on the two new continents, Kul Tiras and Zandalar, which are explored by the Alliance and Horde respectively.
Horde players will need to persuade the trolls of Zandalar to lend their naval might to the war effort, while Alliance players will travel to the home of Jaina Proudmoore and rally its inhabitants to fight for their cause. They each contain three zones, broken down like this:. New dungeons are also on the way — ten in all.
Following the initial launch, the first wing of Looking For Raid difficulty opens on September 11, followed by the second wing on September 25, and the third and final wing on October 9. Dataminers recently discovered evidence of another raid possibly coming to Battle for Azeroth, Zulzadar. Warning: potential spoilers for both the end of Legion and the beginning of Battle for Azeroth. The climatic final Raid of Legion ended with the imprisonment of Sargeras by the Titans, ending his quest for domination… for now.Despite this, there are still a number of plots in play and many more surprises to be expected.
As the Markovian army invaded the city, led by the super-soldier codenamed Gravediggerthe ASA turned tail and fled, stopping only to cover their tracks and destroy all evidence of their crimes while occupying the city.
This left only Black Lightning, his metahuman alliesand the Freeland Resistance to protect the ordinary citizens caught in the crossfire and stop Gravedigger before the ASA could call in a nuclear strike on the city. It spoils little to reveal that Freeland was not nuked. Despite this, it's fair to say that things will never be the same in Jefferson Pierce's hometown. For everything that came to a close in the season finale, a number of new beginnings have also been suggested.
While not the most popular of the shows making up the ArrowverseBlack Lightning is still a solid performer for the network and more popular than ever now that it is set on Earth-Prime.
This has been the pattern for Black Lightning 's season premieres for the past two seasons, though it is possible it may be held for a Spring release. It is also unknown if Black Lightning will continue airing on Monday nights or if it might move to another time slot. The biggest takeaways from Black Lightning 's season 3 finale is that the ASA is no more and the metahuman children they created aka the Green Light Babies have been stabilized.
The final scene of the finale saw Black Lightning, Thunder and Lightning testifying before Congress as to the crimes of the ASA while they occupied Freeland, and offering up a briefcase full of secret ASA documents as proof of their decades-long campaign to create an army of super-soldiers by experimenting on the children of Freeland.
This resulted in the immediate dissolving of the ASA. The same special Congressional committee investigating the incident in Freeland also authorized funding for a special boarding school, proposed by Dr. Lynn Stewart, that would be able to see to the special needs of the metahuman kids. It also seems likely that the young metahumans Jefferson recruited to help him with saving the city will have a place in this school, either as teachers or students. The future isn't all bright, however. While the ASA may be shut down and the sinister Agent Odell in prison, crime-boss Tobias Whale is still at large and ready to reclaim his seat on the throne of Freeland's underworld.
Since that seat is currently being held by his former minion Lala and Lala has the backing of a recently resurrected Lady Eve and the mysterious Shadow Board behind her, it's unlikely the passing of the crown will be peaceful. Throw in the fact that Gravedigger is still alive and at liberty and that means there's a lot of trouble brewing for the heroes of Freeland when Black Lightning Season 4 begins.

While previous Mythic Seasons only had a Feat of Strength achievement tied to them, you'll be able to collect a new title and a mount in the upcoming Mythic Season 4.
Note that the achievement includes Mechagon Junkyard and Mechagon Workshop now that they're being split into two dungeons in Patch 8. You can find more details on Visions of N'Zoth in our Patch 8. One fugly looking mount but nice to see a reward and title attached to mythic keystones this time around. Will be more than down to push back to doing 15's on time and trying out the Mech split dungeons.
I logged off after 30min of event. Is this addiction, or do I just hope that in shadowlands they add new stuff that makes me enjoy the game actually and I diddnt wanna miss out on deathwing mount e. Come back if you actually can enjoy game mechanics. I thought a bit about this mount and the raid achievement mount and if i am not totally wrong, it looks alot like the "Voidpet" of Orphea from HotS.

Azeroth Football League Team Logos. If you hadn't heard of the AFL before, well, that's because it doesn't exist. Obviously the Earthshakers are my favorites and I don't really see anyone beating them in this imaginary league, although I'd REALLY like to see them go against the Kezan Rockets or Gnomeregan Destroyers as that would be a sight to see indeed.

Inspired by Uldir's final boss G'huun, we found an interesting new affix called Infested. Btw hope they bring more goals than this two. Err I guess so, I just want some decent cosmetics, because I think everyone agrees that Legion dungeon transmogs were a hideous b repetitive.
I'd really like to see them do something like they do with raids and PvP, extra tints for doing the content at the hardest level.
Sorry, nope. Love the idea. More groups searching for rewards, means more chances for peole to earn them and more interest in them overall. Even if its just achieves and toys, its super easy to do and I cant imagine the programming part of it is 'expensive' for Blizzard. A very small one I'd say. I hope that they make mythic plus more meaningful in bfa. I honestly barely do anything besides the weekly these days because the reward is so little compared to the time spent.
Cuz it was meant to be at least a partial alternative to raiding and forcing me to go to raids for weapons would be annoying. Frankly it has to, other than the cache very a lot people are very unlikely get a non-forged upgrade from a 15, hell the cache itself hasn't gave my main an upgrade or even an offspec upgrade in months.

Blizzard have just announced the full starting calendar for Battle for Azeroth, featuring all the important post launch dates minus when the next big patch will come, of course.

World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth release date, times, and features – all the latest details
Mark your calendars and prepare for new adventures. Are you ready to face the terrors sealed away inside the new Uldir raid? Looking forward to bringing another Allied Race into the Horde or Alliance?
Prepping for the first PvP or Mythic Dungeon season? The choice is ultimately yours. Millenia ago, seeking to understand the nature of their eternal foe, the titans constructed this sprawling underground facility to research and quarantine captured specimens. They hoped that by studying the void energy that bound the Old Gods, probing it for weaknesses and reactions, they could find some way to neutralize it.
They were horribly, horribly wrong. The facility was sealed away so that the horrors within would never be unleashed upon Azeroth. But now those seals have broken. Ready your swords and boards: the new PvP season is on its way.
Read about rated PvP updates and rewards here and prepare to leap, blink, sneak, or charge your way into the action. As a part of Season 1, we will be introducing using a new seasonal affix—Infested—which will appear on level 10 or higher Keystones. How will you deal with these new dangers?
I know previously the rewarded saddle for alliance side has the giant hippo mount. I freely admit to knowing nothing about pvp, i literally just farmed warden towers in legion to get artifact appearance.
The arena wins to get hippo saddle, I heard it is three up only, not twos, is this accurate? You can post now and register later. If you have an account, sign in now to post with your account.
