Battle for Azeroth Pre-Patch to Land on July 17th

Posted by MMORPG.com Staff on Jul 13, 2018  | Comments

The wait for the next World of Warcraft expansion, Battle for Azeroth, is coming to a close. With launch day on August 14th, the time has come for the pre-patch events to go live starting July 17th. The pre-patch comes with a number of changes briefly outlined in this video and on the game's official site.

Players can look forward to a number of big changes starting in 8.0 including:

  • the "stat squish" - health, damage and stat numbers have been reduced across the board for NPCs and players
  • artifact traits will no longer be active
  • significant changes to professions - each expansion's recipes are in their own category with their own progression. You don't have to level through old recipes
  • First Aid is removed 
  • War Mode PvP will be activated in the pre-patch
  • new story content will be added over the weeks until the expansion launches
