With scheduled weekly maintenance the week of March 31, we’re enabling Legacy loot rules in Legion raids and dungeons.
We’re reached that point in an expansion where the content from the previous expansion no longer requires a full group, and the rewards are primarily sought by transmog collectors. With this change, Legion raid and dungeon encounters will drop a fixed quantity of class-agnostic loot. Today, if you and one other player enter Emerald Nightmare on Mythic difficulty and kill Nythendra, it’s unlikely that you’ll receive any loot, since drop rates normally scale to the number of players. After this change, Nythendra will always drop 5 items from her loot table, regardless of your group size.
Dungeons and many of the lower-difficulty raid bosses in Legion are already soloable by well-equipped Battle for Azeroth characters, though some bosses, especially on Mythic difficulty, may still require you to bring a few friends. Nonetheless, this should amount to a gr...Read more
OP is updated with the latest hotfixes.
Sharpen your swords and reinforce your boards, because you’re called to the PvP Arena for the hectic mayhem of Skirmishes.
All week, from anywhere in Azeroth, open the Group Finder (default hotkey: i), select the Player vs. Player tab on the bottom of the window, and then under Casual, choose Arena Skirmish and JOIN BATTLE. You’ll be matched up with teammates and provided with opponents to kill in the Arena. You can also queue for a Premade group or create your own group within the Premade tab.
Look for the following all week long:
If you’ve been away from the trials and tribulations on Azeroth’s shores, then we’ve got you covered in our brief guide to getting back in the action at level 120.
Have your own tips for helping others? Share them here!
Life has a way of catching up to you, but if you’re just returning to your level 120 character after a hiatus and want to catch up on the latest content, then this brief guide is for you.
It’s not too late to join in the fight against N’Zoth and his minions. If you’ve left a level 120 character behind, it’s easy to catch up on all the latest adventures in Azeroth.
When you log in with your level 120 character, you’ll automatically receive the quest “The Wolf’s Offensive” (Alliance) or “The War Chief’s Order” (Horde) to sail to Nazjatar. There, you’ll establish your base and set up a portal to Dazar’alor (Horde) or Boralus (Alliance).
With your hub is established, you’ll be called upon by Speaker Magni Bronzebeard to join him at the Chamber of Heart. Through his series of quests, you’ll ...Read more
We’ve just made a significant update to the new Echoes of Ny’alotha system, with the goal of making Essences much more available to your characters whose specializations put them in different roles (tanking, healing, damage).
With this change, we’ve lifted the restrictions on acquiring role-specific Azerite Essences from MOTHER. Now, the various ways that you obtain Rank 3 tanking, healing, or damage-specific Essences are now grouped together. If you’ve earned any of the three Essences in these groups, all three of the Essences will be unlocked for purchase from MOTHER with Echoes of Ny’alotha:
If you’re staying indoors and find yourself back in Azeroth, we’ve made it easier to level a new character as the Winds of Wisdom buff blows through the world.
Styles from Kul Tiras and Zandalar are all the rage, but is your transmog the flavor of the moment? Or is it a timeless couture classic? You’ll be able to find out during the Trial of Style, taking place March 20 –24! Prepare to strut your stuff in a head-to-head fashion face-off and see who can put it all together—for the win!
Share your best transmogs on Twitter by using the hashtag #transmog, then join the discussion here.
Ladies and gentlemen of the Horde and Alliance, synchronize your wardrobes and prepare to do battle. The Trial of Style has arrived, and it’s time to put your transmogrification skills to the test.
When: March 20–24
Where: Queue for the 6-player scenario at your friendly neighborhood transmog NPC.
What: Contestants will have two minutes to create transmog sets from items in their collection based on themes presented in the scenario. Two players at a time will be pulled up on stage to strike a pose and show off their creation—leaving the remaining four to vote on just who of the two has managed to capture the theme best.
Collect all 12 Ensembles to keep adventuring in style.Read more
