The War Campaign Finale took place in Battle for Azeroth patch 8.2.5.

From the Horde perspective, the quest starts at Port of Zandalar (/way 50.13 95.85). Lor’themar Theron gives the quest titled The Eve of Battle.

There are a series of cutscenes and cinematics that tell the story of how the Alliance and the Horde banded together to rally against Warchief Sylvanas in Orgrimmar.

One of the most exciting features in Shadowlands is the new character customization options. Previously, Blizzard’s said we were only getting updates to the “core” races. Allied races are out of luck for new stuff. Or are they? Probably, but on the alpha there’s been a surprising exception.

Mechagnomes received four new customization options in the latest (as of this writing) build. These are a new set of goggle type eye enhancements with variants for each mechagnome ear type.

What’s odd about these additions is that they sort of already exist on live servers. That’s probably why they’re being made fully available in Shadowlands.

Currently mechagnome characters will use this goggle eye appearance if they’re wearing helms that cover hair or facial features on other races.

You can’t select these options in the barbershop or have your character display them outside of equipping/transmogrifying certain helms… until now! (Technically until the Shadowlands pre-patch releases, but until now sounded cooler.)

The latest PTR 8.3 Patch build 32272 introduced the questline that sends you into Pandaria to search for the Rajani clan, the mogu who follow Ra-Den as their master. You enter the Mogu’shan Terrace dungeon to align its Engine of Nalak’sha with the Chamber of Heart.

Ra-Den then comes with you to the Chamber of Heart. MOTHER attempts to align the Engine of Nalak’sha and the Forge of Origination to the Chamber of Heart, but an anomaly impedes the procedeure. From there, you go to the Halls of Origination to fix the problem.

Wrathion intercedes and tricks you into entering an Horrific Vision. Something Magni disapproved after the fact. From there, you enter the Blackwing Descent with Wrathion to recover an item that will create the Legendary Cloak in order to protect you while inside a Horrific Vision.

The questline ends with the unlocking of Horrific Vision of Stormwind and Orgrimmar — accessed through gateways inside the Chamber of Heart.

In order to survive the Horrific Vision of Stormwind and Orgrimmar, players need to acquire Wrathion’s Legendary Cloak: “Ashjra’kamas, Shroud of Resolve.” The cloak can be upgraded up to Rank 15 with Horrific Core. At Rank 15, the cloak reduces Sanity loss from all sources by 75% — which helps at the most difficult areas of the Horrific Vision of Stormwind and Orgrimmar.

Below is a map of both cities, and the amount of Sanity lost per second in the most difficult areas.

After reaching Heart of Azeroth Level 65, I was greeted at the Chamber of Heart with two new quests. One of them starts with Kalecgos who sends you to the Twilight Highlands. There, a Vermillion Holdout scenario requires you to reduce the enemy threat from the Void-Twisted invaders.

After defeating Vexiona, Alexstrasza visits the Chamber of Heart to empower the Heart Forge with Tempered Scale of the Scarlet Broodmother. This adds the Crucible of Flame power.

After the conclusion of the Eternal Palace raid, N’zoth escaped his prison. Now the Black Empire has invaded Uldum and the Vale of Eternal Blossoms – two key Titan facilities.

Players must embark into the Visions of the Black Empire to stop the dark future from unraveling. These are the quest videos.

This questline introduces the player to the Rajani and Uldum Accord factions. Wrathion teams up to seek ingredients to craft a powerful Legendary cloak to protect you inside the Horrific Visions of N'Zoth.

In Patch 8.3, the Black Empire has assaulted the Emerald Dreamways. First, you talk to the Earthen Guardian by the Port of Zandalar or Tradeswind Market, who informs you that Magni has summoned you to the Chamber of Heart. There, Kalecgos sends you to Ysera’s daughter, Merithra of the Dream, to support her dragonflight with the power to stop the Black Empire from killing more of her brethren.

After you repel the Black Empire’s invasion, Merithra rewards you with the Dreamglow Dragonscale. She appears at the Chamber of Heart to complete the ritual that infuses the Dreamglow Dragonscale’s power into the Heart Forge. This increases the Heart of Azeroth level from 67 to 83, and adds a third Minor slot to the Heart Forge.

Community Manager Kaivax posted the 8.2.5 Patch Notes listing all the content players may expect in Battle for Azeroth.

A new content update for World of Warcraft is in development and will soon be available on the Public Test Realms (PTR). While not all features will be fully functional and available for testing, here’s a look at some of the new content coming in this version.

Worgen and Goblin Character Model Updates

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

Celebrate 15 Years of World of Warcraft

This November marks the 15th anniversary of World of Warcraft, and we have some special things planned to celebrate the occasion. Players who log in during the event period will receive a celebration package in the mail with a Lil’ Nefarian pet and some other in-game goodies. Throughout the duration of the event, you’ll be able to participate in three unique raids with iconic encounters from past expansions along with an old-school-inspired Alterac Valley battleground. Players who defeat all nine bosses in the raid wings will receive the Obsidian Worldbreaker, a Black Dragonflight mount inspired by Deathwing. Players who participate in Alterac Valley and complete an achievement can earn two new mounts: the Stormpike Battle Ram (Alliance) and the Frostwolf Snarler (Horde).

A Fuzzy, Buzzy Mount

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 this mount.

New Timewalking Raid: Firelands

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

Introducing Party Sync

During this PTR we’re experimenting with a new mode that makes it easier for players in a party to do quests and play together: Party Sync. When players activate Party Sync, everyone in the party becomes aligned to the same quest state, including phases. By mousing over a quest in your tracker, you can see who is on the quest, what their progress is, and who’s ready to turn in the quest. There’s something else we’re going to try out on the PTR, a “replay” quest feature. This will allow 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.

We’re also relaxing level restrictions on queueing for instanced content with your friends. This allows lower-level players to queue for content in their level range, and higher-level players can choose to join them by having their level scaled down while they’re in the instance. This feature will be available for dungeon instances for PTR Week 1, with PvP instances being flagged in the following weeks. Please note that unlike Timewalking, when your level is scaled down via Party Sync you will temporarily lose access to abilities and powers (such as Azerite traits) with requirements that exceed your reduced level.

Recruit A Friend Returns

Coming in 8.2.5 is a revamped Recruit A Friend system. If you have active game time you’ll be able to recruit your friends—both brand-new to the game and returning champions—to share in your adventures. To do so, you’ll be able to use a new URL generation tool to create a custom link to give to your friends. By following the link, you’ll be connected to each other and will be able to see if they have purchased game time, resulting in 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 per month and scale with how many months 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. We’ll have more information about Recruit A Friend rewards when we get closer to its release.

Thanks for reading, and we’ll see you on the 8.2.5 PTR!
