Will Curve for ToS be removed when 7.3 comes out or when new raid comes out ?


As with previous Legion raids, AotC for Tomb will not be removed until Antorus is released.

There seems to be a bug in 7.3 where Enhancement Shamans will drop Fury of Air if they enter Ghostwolf. Is this intended?


We're working on a hotfix for this. Once the hotfix is applied, Fury of Air should be active in Ghost Wolf form.

My Army of the Light chest dropped an unsullied token for hunters and shamans. I'm a sub rogue. Is that working as intended?


Unsullied tokens can be mailed to your alts. This is similar to systems you might recall from Timeless Isle or Tanaan Jungle.

Access to areas of Argus is account-wide, but specific World Quests may require that a character has completed story prerequisites.

No. As of 7.3, once you spend the first 34 points in your artifact, the rest of its potential automatically unlocks.

Rewards from tomorrow's chest cap at Mythic 10*. Thereafter, a Mythic Keystone 11-15 will again reward higher level items.

Also, the Antorus launch raises the global ilvl to 985, the ilvl for new legendaries to 1000, and you can start the quest to upgrade existing legendaries.

Hey Do you have to pickup the cursed shard item first before you grab the titanic effort quest because just did some lfr an daily heroic did not receive it.


The Cursed Shard's purpose is to lead players to start the "Titanic Effort" quest, so it's obvious how to use Wakening Essences.

If you’re already on that quest, you didn’t miss anything.

makes it useless to try and 200% it with my followers (6 at 950) if the reroll is just randomly changed just for me?
fix it please.


Antorus missions offer Xenedar Armor Sets as bonus loot to assist in completing the quest "Felfire Shattering". You will see Seals of Broken Fate as bonus loot after you finish that quest.

To clarify: This is only true for the first legendary you upgrade. After you complete A Titanic Effort once, you must pick up the repeatable version of the quest from Arcanomancer Vridiel in Dalaran to upgrade additional legendaries.

We, among many other guilds, are experiencing mines, that have been up for some time, self-detonating at the same time causing wipes. Could you clarify if this is intended or a bug? Having 8/9 mines explode because people are doing well is crushing.


This is intended. After a period of time, mines on Antoran High Command detonate on their own. In a recent hotfix, we added a warning visual that shows when a mine is about to explode.

This is an effect of the world scaling introduced in patch 7.3.5. Materials you receive from disenchanting are now based on the item’s expansion level, not its item level. For example, Burning Crusade-era items disenchant to Burning Crusade-era materials.

You will still receive the Heritage Armor for your Allied Race if you use heirlooms to level them to 110.

The only things that disqualify you from obtaining the Heritage Armor are:
- Using a Character Boost

heritage armor questions. If I level an allied race, does it unlock heritage armor for all of the same race? Let’s say I boost a LFD. She won’t get the armor. Then I level one. Would the boosted one have it because I leveled or does boosting block it entirely?

There's been some debating going on in the guild about the line "the maximum XP boost you will see from today onwards is 50%" in the RAF post. Does this mean that things like DMF buff and Garrison buff don't stack with Heirlooms, if you're 50%?


The XP bonus from Recruit a Friend is the only form of bonus experience that has a maximum of 50%.
Heirlooms stack with other bonuses, like the Darkmoon Faire one, in the same way they did before the change.

excuse me guys, Im trying to complete all the surama quests to obtain flying, but I have noticed that I am not receiving any rep with the night-borne for completing all the quests Im doing, I've been questing for days now and now rep?? is this a bug please??


Some storylines that are part of Good Suramaritan—for example, “Jandvik’s Jarl” or “Moon Guard Stronghold”—are not directly related to the Nightfallen storyline.
These unrelated quests do not reward reputation with the Nightfallen faction.

FYI: There are currently no "keys" for the Battle for Azeroth Alpha. All invites are done by granting access directly to a Battle.net account. Any offers for an "Alpha key" at this stage are likely to be a scam.

Some of the Trial of Style themes are inconsistent. "Fire and Ice" has the floater text for "Spook-tacular", and "Primal Style" has floater text saying "Zen". Please fix, kinda' ruins the fun when people can't agree on theme.


We're aware of some issues with Trial of Style, and we should have a fix in for it soon.

If I have played 200 games of 3v3 arena and I then faction change do I have to play 50 extra wins on the new race or 150 wins extra to receive Gladiator / Dominant Gladiator


A player who faction changes will need 150 wins with their new faction to qualify for Gladiator / Dominant Gladiator.

Is Moonrest Shore still in Val'sharah? I think it might have been there at launch and replaced with Verdant Cliffs (falcosaur area), but there doesn't seem to be any information anywhere about it.


Moonrest Shore was an early name for Moonrest. The thinking was that you could see the shore from there. But you can't, really, because the trees block your view of the shore. Which is fine. They're lovely trees. Very restful.

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.

can we get some clarification on the inner workings of Bone Shield on BFA Beta? Stacks seem to drop much quicker in multi-target situations than on Live. Has the type of things that remove stacks been changed, or the internal CD reduced/removed?


In the Battle for Azeroth Beta, Bone Shield still has a 2-second internal cooldown on losing stacks.

If you spot a bug, please try to give us as much detail as possible. Thank you!

As of the next build of the Battle for Azeroth Beta, this should no longer be an issue, since Downpour no longer replaces Healing Rain.

Maybe I am one of the very few players that is a sucker for stats, but you still haven't added Seething Shore to the PvP/Battleground statistics list. At least the win/loss ratio would be nice, maybe even captured Azerite.


This was a bug that we're working to fix in Battle for Azeroth.

if prestige is going account wide, does that mean artifacts appearances or color variations are unlocked in all characters once BfA begins?


Yes, if you unlock an appearance that requires an account-wide Prestige level, all of your characters will get that appearance.

Is this a boss rename? If so, what boss?


Vectis is the boss formerly known as “Blood of G’huun”.

When prestige goes account wide is all of our characters prestige levels going to merge? Or just taking the highest prestige we have earned on 1 char?


In Battle for Azeroth, all of your Prestige levels are going to merge. So if you have three characters who reached Prestige 4 in Legion, your account will be set to Prestige 12 in Battle for Azeroth.

I love barbed shot for beast mastery. However I think it’s strange that you can’t fire an arrow at a target unless your pet is within range? Also the barb is bugged and doesn’t put a dot on enemies on beta.

Correction to this tweet: the merge will be to Honor earned account-wide. So two characters at exactly Prestige 1 will not result in Prestige 2 after the merge, but you also don't have to finish a Prestige level for that Honor to count.

Is it intended that auto attacks are doing so much damage across every class on Beta? Not trying to be rude with this question, I'm actually just curious if it's an intended design or a consequence of tuning at the moment.


Yes. The relative amount of damage done by auto-attacks has gone down over the years, and in the Battle For Azeroth Beta, we’re bringing it closer to where it has been historically.

In Battle For Azeroth, the per-realm character limit will be going up from 16 to 18 to make room for the two new Allied Races (Dark Iron dwarves and Mag’har orcs).

With the new beta build, honor levels go up to 500, with the current rewards scaling as well. So the final mount is rank 250. Are current ranks scaling as well or are we going to have to re-grind existing rewards to get to the ones we missed? like 25 jumping to 250?


The Legion Prestige rewards are all available in the new Battle For Azeroth Honor system, but the pacing isn’t exactly the same. Anyone who earned a reward in Legion will keep it in Battle For Azeroth, even if they don’t meet the new requirements.

are all the pets for demo locks normalised like it is for the other two specs? I would like to be able to use the their utility too. Having talents for a single pet kind of defeats having other pets.


Demonology’s Felguard is intended to be a uniquely strong pet that only they have access to. They favor it over the other pets, but swapping for utility is still an option where needed.
