World of Warcraft “Battle for Azeroth” is almost here
With each new World of Warcraft expansion, some previous expansion features get left behind, and the transition from Legion to Battle for Azeroth is no exception. Blizzard announced today the official list of content that will be unachievable once the pre-patch for Battle for Azeroth hits sometime in the next month or so.
There are a few activities from the previous Legion DLC that are about to expire, this is what you need to know as per Blizzard:
“Silithus has become a hive of activity following the wounding of Azeroth by Sargeras’ sword. The Azerite seeping up to the surface has captured the attention of both the Horde and the Alliance, and a deadly race has begun to collect as much of this new resource as possible. While these two factions focus on a future of war, Magni Bronzebeard has turned his attention to finding a solution to Azeroth’s plight.
Magni is putting out a call to heroes from every corner of the world to gather once more in Silithus. There, you’ll need to use the power of your Artifact weapon to draw out the darkness from Sargeras’ sword and help stabilize Azeroth’s grievous wounds. There’s a price to be paid, however, and you’ll find that once you’ve lent your aid, your Artifact weapon will become a little unstable. But with this instability comes a temporary boost in power … which will, perhaps a bit ominously, continue ramp up over time.”
When Battle for Azeroth goes live, Artifact traits go inactive. But, before you panic – there will be something to replace it when the new expansion goes live. As far at the Artifact Challenge appearances go, there’s still time to earn one before the pre-patch goes live. Players will neat to the Mage Tower over at Broken Shore that will have the quest active continuously until drop day.
According to Blizzard, “To get started on your classes’ Artifact Challenge appearance quest, you’ll need to visit War Councilor Victoria at Deliverance Point on the Broken Shore. The first time you take on the challenge is still free, but it will cost you Nethershards for each following attempt.
Once the Artifact Challenge quest is no longer available, if you’ve earned the base challenge appearance for your class specialization, you’ll be able to continue earning the three alternate tints for that specialization’s Artifact at any point thereafter.
To gain access to the Artifact Challenge quest, you’ll need to be level 110, have earned all 35 Artifact Levels for your weapon, and have completed the quest line to unlock access to the four new traits that became available with Patch 7.2.”
The two time-limited Feats of Strength are also going away, which Blizzard explains as “Ahead of the Curve: Argus the Unmaker and Cutting Edge: Argus the Unmaker, which charge heroes with defeating the final boss of Antorus, the Burning Throne in Heroic or Mythic difficulty respectively.”
Once the pre-Battle for Azeroth patch goes live, players will no longer be able to complete Ahead of the Curve: Argus the Unmaker and Cutting Edge: Argus the Unmaker, two achievements that ask players to defeat the final boss of the final Legion raid on the Heroic and Mythic difficulty, respectively. Ahead of the Curve comes with a mount, so if you want these achievements you’ll need to get a skilled group together in the next few weeks.
Any achievements related to the secondary profession First Aid will also be going away, as the old profession is taken out of the game. Mage Tower appearances for players’ Artifact weapon will also become unachievable after the pre-patch goes live. To help players who are trying to get those final appearances — which can be transmogged going forward — the Mage Tower will now be active all day, every day until the achievement is no longer able to be earned.
While we’re currently unsure of the exact date for the Battle for Azeroth pre-patch, it will likely release in just a few weeks, about a month or so out from the expansion’s release date.
World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth will be released for Mac and Windows PC on August 14.
