Things to Do Before Pre-Patch

With the Pre-Patch releasing this Tuesday, you now have less than a week to complete many features which will be removed in the 8.0 Patch. Check out our What To Do Before Battle for Azeroth Guide for the full details.
  •  The Chosen - This achievement will be moved to a Feat of Strength in Patch 8.0
  • First Aid Achievements - First Aid achievements have been moved to Legacy which indicates they may be unobtainable in the prepatch.
  • Legion Elite PvP Sets - The 7.3 Elite Transmogs will become unobtainable.
  • Mage Tower Appearances - Any Mage Tower appearances not obtained by 8.0 will become unobtainable. Need help?
  • Ashran and Strand of the Ancients - Both zones will be retiring. If you have any achievements that you want, it's time to get them now!
  • Pet Charms - If you want to buy Battle Stones, buy them before the Pre-Patch!
  • Prestige Rewards - After the conversion into Honor, many Prestige Rewards will require much more Honor than before. 

New Features

Burning of Teldrassil and Battle for Undercity

Players will be able to experience the Burning of Teldrassil storyline during the Pre-Patch event and will be split up among several weeks. Completing the storyline will award each faction with one mount:  War-Torn Reins of the Undercity Plaguebat and  Smoldering Reins of the Teldrassil Hippogryph.

The Battle for Lordaeron, the Alliance's retaliation for Teldrassil, is only available to players who purchase Battle for Azeroth. Those who purchase BFA can access this content one week before the launch of BFA. No specific date has been announced, but August 7th is a likely bet.

Loot Distribution

Starting with Battle for Azeroth, Personal Loot is the default method of Loot Distribution. In addition, Master Loot has been removed from the game. 

Raid Mounts from Mythic Gul'dan or Mythic Argus currently work as follows on Live servers with Personal Loot distribution. This may change in the pre-patch:
  • The Raid Mount is given to a random member of the raid who does not already have the mount.
  • This person is currently NOT able to trade it. For guilds who are selling these mounts, it's important to make sure that every person in the raid already owns the mount.
In addition, a new mode called Legacy Loot Mode has been added to old content. After a change in Patch 7.3.5, Battle for Azeroth will return loot troves in old dungeons and raids to the way they previous were for Transmog hunters.
  • The number of items dropped by bosses will be the same as if you were in a full party.
  • Flexible raid sizes will act if there were 20 players.
  • All items on the loot table can drop, not just ones designated for your spec.

War Mode

War Mode is a new system of World PvP added in Battle for Azeroth that you can only toggle in Orgrimmar or Stormwind. If turned on:
  • In the open world, you will only see players that also have War Mode turned on.
  • You get 10% increased experince and currencies (Honor, Gold, Resources, AP).
  • You get to use your PvP Talents in the Open World.

Stat and Item Level Squish

The Battle for Azeroth Pre-Patch will include the second stat squish and the first item level squish. Here is a table showing the new Legion item levels.

Class Changes

Artifacts
Artifact Appearances can now be transmogged on top of any weapon, but they are still spec specific. You'll find the option in the Transmog window.

  • Second are Damage Modifier Debuffs placed on enemies brought by  Monk and  Demon Hunter
  • Lastly some additional Dispel and Purge Utility is being added. These are more important in Battle for Azeroth with the increased diversity of debuff types.

Many class systems have changed in Battle for Azeroth. We've listed them below, with links to articles which will go more in depth.

Other Updates

Character Customization Updates


In the Battle for Azeroth Pre-Patch, players will be able to choose new options at the Barber Shop. In addition, Blood Elves have received more customization updates.

At the Barber Shop:
  • You can now also change your Skin Colour at the Barber Shop using In-Game Gold!
  • If you are an Orc, it will allow you to choose the Upright Posture!
    • You can currently preview the upright Orcs, as well as their animations in Wowhead's Dressing Room and selecting the "Use upright posture".
       

Collection Updates


Toy, Mount, Pet and Reputation collectors rejoice! More achievements have been added with even more rewards!

Creature Model Updates



The Battle for Azeroth pre-expansion patch updates many well-loved, but low-resolution, models such as prairie dogs, cats, many hunter pet tames, and horses.

Class Ability Animations


The following Classes received updates to their animations:
  • All three warlock specs received massive updates to their visuals and also applied to the Green Fire visuals
  • Feral Druids received updates to their running and walking animations
  • Guardian Druids and their Artifact skins received updates
  • Mage's Water Elemental is updated!
  • Shaman's Fire and Earth Elementals are also updated!


Profession Updates


Professions are receiving changes to skill caps in the Battle for Azeroth pre-expansion patch. Instead of having to level from 1 through 800, leveling professions will be split into skill tiers per expansion.

In the past few expansions, Blizzard has tried to experiment with profession catch-up mechanisms to aid players so they do not have to grind through hundreds of skill ranks just to craft expansion-appropriate recipes. With this new system, now players can focus on leveling professions for a certain expansion.
  • Classic goes up to 300
  • Outland, Northrend, Catalcysm, Pandaria goes up to 75
  • Draenor and Legion goes up to 100
  • Kul Tiras and Zandalar goes up to 150

PvP Updates


The Prestige system is being removed and new Honor Levels have been added. Honor Levels are now account-wide and all Honor earned on any character in Legion will be converted to the new system. ZigiPrestige has released an addon that tell you your approximate Honor Level in Battle for Azeroth by adding up all the Honor on your account. 

If you don't get a certain prestige reward before the Pre-Patch, it'll likely become harder in the 8.0 Pre-Patch!
*Assuming 8,800 Honor per level. As such, this column's values will be slightly low.
