With Battle for Azeroth’s global launch a mere three weeks away, today’s World of Warcraft update is one a lot of players have been waiting for. The first stones have been cast in the titular “Battle for Azeroth”, as the Horde is about to – and I’m paraphrasing Warchief Sylvanas Windrunner here – burn this motherfucker down.
Those of us that played the BfA Beta already know the deal here: In an effort to control the flow of Azerite on Kalimdor, and to send a big flaming “fuck you” to King Anduin Wrynn, everybody’s favorite Goth Mommy sends Overlord Saurfang and a sizable detachment of Horde soldiers to Ashenvale. Once there, they plan to head straight through to Darnassus – where they “plan” to “capture” the World Tree, Teldrassil (the home of the Alliance’s Night Elves).
World Quests in Darkshore and The Burning of Teldrassil questline both start today, and all eligible players will be given the first quest for the latter upon logging in. This event will continue for the next two weeks, and will reward eventually reward some pretty sweet mounts for both factions – the War-Torn Reins of the Undercity Plaguebat (Horde) or the Smoldering Reins of the Teldrassil Hippogryph (Alliance).
If you haven’t noticed already with Patch 8.0 – your classes have been totally revamped. This comes with a lot of changes that your friendly neighborhood database websites would be happy to break down for you. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got some Night Elves to evict.
