Ready for War Quests on Battle for Azeroth Alpha 26231 - Wed, 21 Mar 2018 21:54:00 -0500 New quest chapters have been added to the Battle for Azeroth alpha. These Ready for War quests take you into enemy territory to give you a taste of the other faction's storyline. Story spoilers in post.
In Battle for Azeroth build 26231, some Alliance quests were open, primarily in Nazmir, for the Ready for War achievement. We learned at the recent Battle for Azeroth Q&A that this campaign was tied to the BFA champions and currency War Resources.
In Battle for Azeroth, any crafts you’ve learned in the past will still be there and not need to be re-learned, with the exception of First Aid. Tailoring and Alchemy crafts, bandages, and anti-venoms that used to be in First Aid will have to be re-learned.
Season 6 Elite Ensembles Availability - Wed, 21 Mar 2018 14:09:52 -0500 Blizzard is planning on releasing the S6 Elite Ensembles earlier rather than later via a hotfix - hopefully before the end of Season 7.
These sets are not available to purchase via vendors, which still require a PvP season rank, because they share appearances with the current Season 7 set.
Check out all these appearances in the Transmog Set Database.
Here's a forum post explaining the situation:
