World of Warcraft developer update patch 8.3 was released today. WoW Game Director Ion Hazzikostas gave an 18-minute presentation on what fans can expect moving forward. He confirmed the next raid, new allied races, and more exciting events. Now we finally have answers to all of our speculation. Patch 8.3 will be called Visions of N’Zoth and will be live on the Public Test Realms (PTR) tonight. So you’ll be able to jump right in and try out the new content.

There’s a new heroic version of the Darkshore warfront, a new PvP season (season 4), and a new Mythic Keystone affix. We can also expect to see more of Wrathion. The Black Prince will be offering us a Legendary questline to receive a cloak. This cloak will be used to protect us from N’Zoth’s influence. Wrathion is a fan-favorite character, so this is great news. Patch 8.3 is packed with tons of epic goodies. So, let’s take a deeper look.

WoW Classic News

Phase 2 has changed for WoW Classic. Diremaul is going live in Classic next week. The Honor System and the world bosses will go live later. More information is coming about the rest of phase 2.

Titan Facilities, Assaults, and Horrific Visions

Titan facilities in Uldum and the Vale of Eternal Blossoms will be under attack. We’ll have to defend them from N’Zoth’s minions. Our characters will enter the rifts, and visit an alternate reality. We’re going to stop these nightmares from within. The Titan facilities are our last line of defense against N’Zoth.

World of Warcraft Developer Update Patch 8.3 gave us information on the new assaults. Players will battle across Uldum and the Vale of Eternal Blossoms. Uldum has the Halls of Origination, and the Vale has Mogu’shan Vaults. The Vale has been fully restored from the events of Mists of Pandaria (MoP). While the Vale is under attack by N’Zoth, then you’ll see the zone is plunged into a new darkness. It’ll only look like that during the assault.

Completing assaults will let you enter into N’Zoth’s mind. These Horrific Visions are similar to scenarios. When you enter the vision the first time, you’ll be driven to madness. Wrathion’s legendary quest line to earn a cloak will protect you from N’Zoth’s madness. This will let you go deeper into the vision. You’ll earn more rewards, and learn more secrets of N’Zoth’s power.  Any fragments of the Horrific Visions you find can be brought to Magni and Mother. They’ll do research, which will give you more defense against N’Zoth. The Horrific Visions can be completed solo, or with a 5-man group. Rewards will be equal.

Nya’lotha Raid and N’Zoth

alt="World of Warcraft Developer Update Patch 8.3 - orgrimmar"/>

In Patch 8.3 we’re finally going to Nya’lotha. The Sleeping City is the domain of the Black Empire. Hazzikostas described Nya’lotha as being all around us, and that it’s hiding behind this thin veil. N’Zoth is bringing down the veil and is releasing nightmarish visions, which show the destruction the Black Empire may bring to Azeroth. This means that Nya’lotha is on Azeroth, so we won’t need to journey there on a space ship. Nya’lotha is going to be a raid. The raid will have twelve bosses. Players will have to fight their way through this horrible zone. At the end of this journey, we’re going to face N’Zoth. Every ally will be needed to face the Old God. The legendary cloak will help keep you safe.

New Rewards System: Heart of Azeroth

The Heart of Azeroth is receiving new rewards. These new rewards have passive benefits, and it comes with a new essence slot. You can earn these new essences by doing the Assaults, Horrific Visions, PvP season 4 content, Mythic+, and the new Nya’lotha raid. Titanforging may also receive an update because the Titan facilities are under attack. The Titanforging could become more twisted and corrupt as a result.

New Allied Races: Vulpera and Mechagnomes

alt="World of Warcraft Developer Update Patch 8.3 - mechagon"/>

Patch 8.3 is giving us new allied races. The Vulpera are joining the Horde, while the Mechagnomes are joining the Alliance. To unlock the Vulpera you must be exalted with the Volduni. You also must complete a questline in Visions of N’Zoth and then you can play the Vulpera. Mechagnomes require you to be exalted with the Rustbolt Resistance and complete a questline in Visions of N’Zoth.

New Heritage Armor: Goblin and Worgen

World of Warcraft Developer Update Patch 8.3 is giving us new heritage armor. The Goblins heritage armor is red and features several explosives. It’s a perfect fit for Goblins who love to blow stuff up. Worgen is receiving armor which looks like old English attire. They’re also getting a top hat to complete the awesome look. To earn your heritage armor, you’ll need a character at max level, and to be exalted with your city (Gilneas or Isle of Kezan). You’ll also need to complete a short questline.

Auction House Changes: World of Warcraft Developer Update Patch 8.3


Changes to the Auction House are coming. We’ll no longer need to deal with items being sold in a single item. You can purchase how many items you want from a stack. The new interface will look better, and run smoother. Now we can save our favorite items to a shopping list. We’ll be able to find what we what much easier now. Blizzard has streamlined the Auction House process.

Public Test Realms: Patch 8.3

Patch 8.3 should be live on the public test realms today. Blizzard wants to hear your thoughts on the new Auction House system. They’re also seeking feedback

New Mythic+ Keystone Affix


The corrupted affix reflects N’Zoth’s dark influence because his tendrils will spread across Azeroth. When you visit dungeons in season four, you’ll sometimes see black empire obelisks. When you interact with an obelisk, you can enter an alternate world and defeat the lieutenant. If you skip these minions, they might attack you when you’re fighting final bosses.
