Naz'jatar Blood Serpent found in Battle for Azeroth Beta - Tue, 22 May 2018 17:15:43 -0500 Battle for Azeroth is still well under beta stages, but the secrets are already pouring in! The very first secret is the Nazjatar Blood Serpent, a black and red recolor of other eel/serpent mounts like the Abyss Worm and Riddler's Mind-Worm.
The journey towards this secret starts in Stormsong Valley. Abyssal Eel and other naga-related NPCs can very rarely drop Abyssal Fragment. Those can be found north of Fort Daelin.
After obtaining 20 of those fragments, you can combine them...
After Jaina's absence in Legion, she is slated to play a major role in Battle for Azeroth. She accompanies us as we arrive for the first time in Kul Tiras. After disappearing for most of the leveling in Kul Tiras, we need to rescue her.
Road to Acquire Flying in Battle for Azeroth - Pathfinder Part One - Tue, 22 May 2018 12:07:18 -0500 Build 26624 has added the first step to acquire flying in Battle for Azeroth. The achievement, similarly to its predecessors, will require you to complete a number of tasks to unlock the ability to freely fly around. This first step will increase your movement speed while in Kul Tiras and Zuldazar.
Currently, the achievement shows both Alliance and Horde criteria into it, likely a beta bug. Edit: Blizzard has confirmed you need only the Horde or Alliance campaigns for Pathfinder, not both.

The Story from the Follower Missions in Battle for Azeroth - Spoilers! - Fri, 18 May 2018 11:56:57 -0500 Ian Bates from BlizzPlanet, noticed that the follower missions present in Beta have a greater focus on telling the story of what is happening back in Eastern Kingdoms and Kalimdor, instead of Zuldazar and Kul Tiras, serving as a way to tell the player about other conflicts that are happening while they focus their attention on the two new continents.
We have documented all available appearances in the Uldir Armor and Weapons Model Guide. While the armor sets may be drab to some, in metallic shades of gold, silver, and bronze, the weapons are quite eye-catching!
We've also updated our Uldir Bosses Overview with the latest loot tables and covered the latest Uldir Raid Trinket Procs earlier today.
New Combat Ready Animations for Hunters in Battle for Azeroth Build 26624 - Fri, 18 May 2018 02:41:35 -0500 Hunters now have new combat ready animations on the Battle for Azeroth beta. This new animation appears when you right-click a target but are out of range to attack. It would be great if this animation were expanded to be a true idle (out-of-combat) animation option.
Thanks to Utigarde on Reddit and MyMindWontQuiet on Wowhead's Discord for pointing this out.
You can preview these animations in Wowhead's Battle for Azeroth Dressing Room.
