Battle for Azeroth’s Mission Table is Chock-Full of Lore Development

Since its introduction in Warlords of Draenor, the mission table has been one of the most contentious features in the game. In fact, for both Legion and Battle for Azeroth, developers have mentioned in interviews that they heavily considered scrapping the system only to keep it around anyway. But in Battle for Azeroth, the mission table has a greater purpose, one that at least to lore fanatics, will be invaluable. Recent datamining from WoWhead and MMO-Champion revealed the text for most of level 120 missions, and instead of just being based around stuff we did while leveling, these missions reveal how the war is progressing in the Eastern Kingdoms and Kalimdor. It’s essentially a way to keep the old world’s stories updated without having to do a Cataclysm-style revamp. Read on past the jump to see what these new missions reveal, some of the stuff happening in EK and Kalimdor is pretty out there!

Battle for Azeroth Alpha: War Fronts (Horde) Video

On April 17, 2018 — Blizzard Entertainment opened the War Fronts (Horde) to stress the server, and to submit bug reports and feedback. The War Front takes place in Arathi Highlands. The objective is to take the nearby Alliance outposts, reclaim iron and wood resources, and to build a stronghold and train your forces. Once a foothold is secured, players have to keep the invading Alliance forces at bay, while preparing for the final confrontation against Commander Danath Trollbane.

UPDATE: Video below is from Beta (June 9, 2018). The older Alpha stress test video (from April) can be found here.
