In preparation for the upcoming raid, FatbossTV created early previews of all the bosses. Closer to the launch of BFA, Fatboss will be creating in-depth video guides, as well as written raid strategy guides published on Wowhead.

PvP Itemization System in Battle for Azeroth - Tue, 08 May 2018 22:38:27 -0500 Blizzard has shared details on the new PvP itemization system in Battle for Azeroth. There is a new ranking system, new ilvl reward scheme, weekly conquest rewards, and more.
Earlier today we covered the War Mode system on the beta, which is another new PvP system in Battle for Azeroth.
Blizzard In BfA we are doing some meaningful re-structuring of the PvP itemization system, as well as the ranking system.
As previously announced, War Mode is a feature that players can enable, only in Stormwind or Orgrimmar, that enables PvP Talents in the open World, increases rewards received, at the cost of enabling World PvP. Players will be phased accordingly to their War Mode selection during Battle for Azeroth, so those looking for more rewards, like increased experience, and PvP action are always in the same type of realm shards.
Read more of the dialogue leading up to this moment here.
Saurfang: The warchief faces Stormrage alone! I must... Malfurion: ARGH! Saur...fang?! Saurfang: A dishonorable blow. I... I regret it. Sylvanas: Regret nothing. You did well. Saurfang: It was not my place to interfere. Sylvanas: My victory was inevitable. He was merely wasting my time.
Highlights include new maps for Uldir, Loading screens for Arathi Warfronts, Shrine of the Storm, and Zuldazar Arena, and a map named "Zuldazar Alliance Bombing Run." Could this be related to the 8.1 Zuldazar Raid?
