Blizzard on Hunter Pet Specialization Changes in Battle for Azeroth - Tue, 13 Feb 2018 22:59:00 -0600
Blizzard has shared thoughts on Hunter Pet Specialization changes in Battle for Azeroth. On the Alpha, we datamined many changes including abilities related to each specialization, new specializations for certain pet families, and new utility abilities for families that were previously lacking them.

However, some confusion stemmed from using terminology that was previously associated with a DPS/health disparity among pets in previous expansions.

First Aid Potential Revamp or Removal in Battle for Azeroth - Tue, 13 Feb 2018 20:21:15 -0600
First Aid may be undergoing a big revamp, or even removal, in Battle for Azeroth. While you can still train First Aid on the alpha, datamining suggests that First Aid is being removed and the bandages are added to the Tailoring profession.

Check out more datamined spell changes in the 26032 Class and Profession Updates Blog.

Legacy Achievements

Many First Aid achievements are now categorized as Legacy instead of Professions.

Updated Warlock Spell Effects - Tue, 13 Feb 2018 15:00:51 -0600
Legion started a process of updating all class animations. It started all the way back in 7.0 with a few classes, mostly melee, receiving new Casting Animations. Afterwards, during patch 7.3, most casters received updated animations, but a couple were left off, one of those being Destruction Warlocks.

Updated for the new Drain Life and Incinerate animations on the new 2/13 alpha build!

We've also covered new talent visuals in a separate post!

Artifact Traits and Legion Legendary Effects Returning in Battle for Azeroth - Mon, 12 Feb 2018 15:30:00 -0600
In Battle for Azeroth, we will lose our Artifacts (in a future event that we already datamined!) and our legendary items. However, through playing the Battle for Azeroth Alpha and datamining, we can see that a handful of effects once present on legendary items or artifact traits are now talents or baked into other abilities. In this article, we show the current state of these abilities transferring between expansions.

Note: This is all Alpha information and it is not final.

Story spoilers in this post.

Battle for Azeroth Hunter Pet Revamp - Sat, 10 Feb 2018 22:13:53 -0600
Battle for Azeroth Alpha Friends and Family is underway and with it comes many class changes. This article will focus on the changes coming to Hunter pet specializations and base abilities.
Currently, in Legion, regardless of their base specialization, any hunter pet can assume any specialization. That means a turtle can be a damage dealer and a moth can be a sturdy tank. However, Battle for Azeroth is changing that.

Note: This is all Alpha information and it is not final.

Many spells from Build 26010 specify that the ability percentages come from Attack Power now, and new Effect Fields have been added for AP scaling.

Battle for Azeroth Alpha - Bleeds and Poisons Now Scale With Haste - Sat, 10 Feb 2018 16:00:05 -0600
On the Battle for Azeroth Alpha, a large change to Feral Druids, Warriors and Rogues has been made -- Bleeds and Poisons now scale with Haste!

Thanks to Aethys for pointing this out to us.

Throughout Legion, Bleed effects have not scaled with haste. However, in Battle for Azeroth all bleeds now scale with Haste. Hopefully, this will make haste more valuable for these specs. Here are some of the details we've found:

The overall duration of the DoT doesn't change.

New Gorgrond Map in 26010 - Draenor Orc Allied Race Speculation - Fri, 09 Feb 2018 19:45:24 -0600
The latest Battle for Azeroth alpha build added a new map for Gorgrond, a zone first encountered in the alternate universe Warlords of Draenor. This feeds into the speculation that Draenor Orcs could be a playable Allied Race, as Gorgrond could be their special Allied Race hub.

At the Battle for Azeroth Q&A, Ion let it slip that "Draenor Orcs" would be an upcoming Allied Race. We also datamined an "Orc Clan" armor set:

Battle for Azeroth launches with 10 dungeons and some world bosses, as well as the announced raid Uldir soon after. Here is the alpha dungeon journal, including datamined bosses, fight overviews, and ability lists.

Note that while the loot is listed, this is still placeholder. For example, Harlan's Loaded Dice is likely not going live in its current state.
