A new patch means new tweets from the World of Warcraft development team! This thread is an archive of @WarcraftDevs tweets regarding the Battle for Azeroth Pre-Patch and release.


@WarcraftDevs is an official World of Warcraft Twitter account offering design insight and information directly from the World of Warcraft Development Team.

For past updates, please refer to Updates from @WarcraftDevs - Patch 7.3.5 & BFA Beta.

Logging in on main, it showed my new honor level as 37, which seems to be on par with the total honor of that one character only (330k), whereas my account total should amount to level 79 (695k). Do I have to log into each character separately or is that a glitch?

Yes, you will need to log in on each character for their Honor to be added to the total.

We have a new blog post up with Battle For Azeroth Pre-Patch hotfixes right here:

please clarify. BFA will use DX12 for AMD And Intel CPU? Yet Nvidia is by far the more popular GPU architecture and is being left behind. This is flat out wrong!!!! Y'all really are trying to dump your customer base if perception is reality.

We prioritized DirectX 12 support where we felt it necessary for performance and stability. This was not necessary for NVIDIA hardware, which performs admirably on DirectX 11.

We've updated our hotfixes blog post with many hotfixes that were applied to World of Warcraft today, including class, dungeon, raid, PvP, professions, and quest fixes, as well as a reduction in damage done by creatures below level 100:


Any fix for people that have already done the quest for Magram Clan Centaur and Gelkis Clan Centaur reputation? Completed Loremaster years ago and now I cant get these reputations to exalted.

We've just applied a hotfix to the game to address this. If you previously completed the quest "Death to Agogridon", speak to Karnum Marshweaver in Desolace to receive your reward.

We've updated our hotfixes blog post with today's hotfixes, including a broad reduction to the power of all enemies in pre-Antorus Legion Raids that we're working on (and has not yet been finalized):

We've updated our hotfixes blog post with all of the latest hotfixes for the World of Warcraft Battle for Azeroth Pre-Patch:

There's a lot of commotion on the RP realms about sharding returning, it's really not welcome on the RP realms, however, I assume this is only temporary to help with BFA's launch?

By default, sharding is always disabled on RP realms, except where needed for server stability. When events drive large numbers of players to specific areas, we shard them as needed. Sharding has once again been disabled, but we expect it will be needed for launch events soon.

Is there any way to go back to old darkshore quests?

In order to accommodate various questing needs, Zidormi will be making an appearance in Darkshore ... soon.

We've pushed a hotfix that reduces the amount of XP needed for most levels between 40 and 100. Note that the new required amounts may not always display properly for the time being. We'll have details in the next hotfixes update.

Will the mounts be exclusively available during pre-launch, or can we earn them after BFA goes live?

These mounts are exclusively available during the Battle for Azeroth pre-launch events. Obtaining one will unlock both, so get 'em while they're here!

We have some tuning and balance adjustments coming to several specs with maintenance in each region this week:

What is the release date for M0s, Warfronts and World Bosses? Are M0s open with first reset and the other two with raid release?

Battle for Azeroth Mythic dungeons will first become available after the first weekly reset -- the morning of August 14 in the Americas region, August 15 in Europe, etc.

hey friends, do you guys know if I need to do the darkshore questline to start playing BFA when it launches on monday? thanks

The Darkshore questline isn't required, but it is the only way to earn the exclusive Horde and Alliance mounts (which will no longer be obtainable once BfA launches!)
We've updated our hotfixes blog post with today's hotfixes, including all of the class tuning that is now live in the Americas, Australia-New Zealand, and European realms, and will go live with weekly maintenance in other regions:


Before Battle for Azeroth launches, we're making some additional adjustments to many specs based on how they're playing at level 120:

We've updated our hotfixes blog post with the latest hotfixes to World of Warcraft, including many PvE and PvP class balance and tuning adjustments that went live today ahead of the launch of Battle for Azeroth:


Legion Assaults will be disabled later today, prior to the launch of Battle For Azeroth. They'll return in a few days.
