Here’s some important pre-patch schedule information:
July 17/18 – Week 1
Class changes, talent changes, interface changes, model updates, artifact downgrade – everything but lore. This is the week when we get adjusted to our new gameplay and see whichever achievement, visuals and interface changes are in sleeve.
July 24/25 – Week 2
War of Thorns – Part 1. This is the plot event, dedicated to Ashenvale and Darkshore questline. We see the first step of the Horde offensive in night elven lands and get an access to world quests with gear, gold and whatever other rewards.
July 31/August 1 – Week 3
War of Thorns – Part 2. This is the sequel of the plot event, that will end up with burning of Teldrassil, a presumably stunning and epic cinematic and acquiring the pair of event mounts (Undercity bat for the Horde and Teldrassil dark hippogriff for the Alliance).
August 7/8 – Week 4
The Siege of Lordaeron. Those of us who purchased Battle for Azeroth expansion will get access to the Siege of Lordaeron scenario.
August 14 – Expansion Release
