Battle for Azeroth Community Opinions: Class Changes and State of Mages - Mon, 26 Mar 2018 19:10:51 -0500 Welcome back to the Battle for Azeroth Community Opinions series. This series will span the Battle for Azeroth Alpha and will cover multiple topics. We will focus on a specific topic every week and for this week, we've decided to delve into the Mage specs! Let us know what you think of this type of article in the comments.
Make sure to check out the Mage Discord, Hall of the Guardians.
New Inspect Mount and Pet Option on BFA Alpha - Mon, 26 Mar 2018 15:14:50 -0500 Appearances are very important to mount collectors and the Battle for Azeroth alpha has made it easier to preview mount models in-game. When you Control + Click on a linked mount in chat in the BFA Alpha, an inspection window will open allowing you to zoom, rotate, and pan.
If you'd like to learn more about the new mounts in Battle for Azeroth, check out our mount overview.
This also works for pets which is great as it allows you to check out their models in much greater detail than before.
Mage Tower Now Active Again on EU Realms - Mon, 26 Mar 2018 03:30:16 -0500 The Mage Tower Building is now active again on EU realms! Players that have at least 35 traits on their Artifact (Power Unbound) can work on solo challenges for an Artifact Appearance. We have guides to beating the challenges for all 36 specs as well as detailed comments on all challenge quest pages.
The Artifact Appearances from the Mage Tower will not be obtainable after Legion, so we are publishing articles reminding players when this building is up as Legion draws to an end.
Battle for Azeroth Island Expeditions - NPC Faction Teams and Consumables - Sun, 25 Mar 2018 17:37:42 -0500 Players are able to queue for Island Expeditions on the Battle for Azeroth Alpha. Around the docks of each ship, players are able to view their faction's expedition teams that will appear as NPCs to the opposing faction. Yes, one of these teams does include Sneaky Pete!
Blizzard has also added vendors that sell powerful consumables for Seafarer's Dubloon, which can be found in Island Expeditions. These consumables are very powerful and can help add utility or missing roles to your party.
Wowhead's Artist's Corner and Giveaway - Faebelina - Sun, 25 Mar 2018 12:09:58 -0500 Welcome to a new article series that we at Wowhead are trying out!

In an effort to share what our wonderful community does, we are trying out what we like to call the "Wowhead's Artist's Corner"! About once a month, we will feature an artist and their craft.
What to Do Before Battle for Azeroth? - Sat, 24 Mar 2018 20:14:05 -0500 With more Battle for Azeroth builds happening every week, the feeling that Legion is coming to an end starts to slowly, but steadily, grow. With the end of every expansion, however, there are parts and pieces of content that go away forever, content that sometimes you wanted to complete but ended up forgetting about...or even starting too late to complete it in time.
User Guide Spotlight: Pet Battles with the Elekk Plushie by Albinoette - Sat, 24 Mar 2018 01:32:49 -0500 Welcome! By now you're probably aware of the user-submitted guides on Wowhead, but with over 1500 guides published on the site right now, it can be hard to find a guide, even when searching through a specific category. Because of this, some guides slip through the cracks and aren't viewed by many users simply because you don't know about their existence! Sometimes we go blind to guides that aren't stickied, or lose track of which ones are better than others.
World First All Achievements Completed in Legion by Xirev - Fri, 23 Mar 2018 20:43:39 -0500 WoW has a lot of achievements that are incredibly hard to get. But to collect every single achievement before a new patch of even expansion hits is truly a feat in itself. Completing all achievements means you need to do things like reach Prestige 25, collect 300 toys and mounts, finish the most recent raid, Antorus the Burning Throne on Mythic Difficulty, and win 5000 PvP Pet Battles.
Note that the following sets are marked as cosmetic, implying they can be transmogged by any armor type, but are also common-quality armor which usually means it can't be transmogged. The alpha data is likely incomplete.
Method's Top 5 DPS Tips in Mythic+, Time Trials Starting Soon - Fri, 23 Mar 2018 12:06:07 -0500 We're proud to announce the third video in our partnership with Method on Mythic+ content - top tips for DPS. We're excited to be partnering with Method in 2018 for Mythic+ videos, a set of Mythic+ class guides and interviews with Jdotb!
Method, originally known for their raiding achievements, has grown into a professional Esports organization spanning more aspects of WoW and many games. Recently they announced two Mythic+ teams for the 2018 MDI!
If you want to learn more about Boralus and see how it's visually evolved through the alpha, check out our initial preview, updated preview from 26175 which added the marketplace, and updated preview from 26131 which added people and boats.
Uldir Raid Mail Armor Models - Thu, 22 Mar 2018 21:32:51 -0500 We have our first look at armor from the Uldir raid - the mail set. These sets are not class-specific, so they can be used by Hunters and Shaman.
As a reminder, Blizzard is moving away from traditional tier in Battle for Azeroth. There will be no class-specific tier bonuses or class-themed armor sets per raid. Instead there will be armor sets reflecting the lore and story of each zone. More details in this post.
Uldir, Halls of Control is a titan facility found in Nazmir, Zandalar.
Special Guest Nobbel87 Nobbel87 is our guest for this week's show, specializing in the lore of Warcraft. We recently collaborated with Nobbel on The Story of the Zandalari Trolls. At the start of the show we'll be running down a few lore topics in the BFA alpha, including:
