The post also discussed Exile’s Reach, the new starter experience. You’ll starting your journey here if you’re new to WoW. You’ll also have access to a newcomer chat. Once you reach level 20, you won’t have access to this chat.

Timewalking campaigns were also touched on which basically allow content from certain locations to scale to your level. Adjustments to Recruit a Friend were also outlined. BFA PvP Season 4 is set to end as well once the pre-patch goes live.
