The Legion Pre-Expansion Patch Arrives July 19 (yes that is this week)

The skies over Azeroth are growing darker. . . .
 
The Legion pre-expansion patch is coming soon, and we wanted to give you a heads up about what to expect—and when you can expect it.
 
This update will include a wide variety of features and content that set the stage for the expansion, including system changes, quality-of-life improvements, and major in-game events. Some of these features will be available immediately, while other content will be unlocked in the weeks leading up to the expansion’s launch. Read on for more details.
 

The Opening Salvo

 
When the pre-expansion patch initially goes live, players will be able to immediately access many of its key system-related features. Some of these major updates include:
 
Transmogrification Updates
The new Transmogrification Collections system will make it easier than ever to collect, store, and sort through the gear you want to use for transmogging—without taking up storage space in your inventory, bank, or Void Storage. As you collect items that can be used with the system, you can browse through them—as well as sort by class or slot—in the Appearances tab in your Collections interface.
 
Class Updates
We’re making some significant changes to classes and their specs for Legion to further strengthen their identities. The core changes to spells, talents, and more are going into effect as soon as the pre-expansion patch goes live. For more information on what’s new for each class and spec, read our earlier class preview blogs.
 
We’re also making it easier to switch between specializations for different content. Players will be able to queue up for dungeons, raids, Battlegrounds, or Arenas as any role that is available to their class, while continuing to play as another role while they’re waiting. When they enter the content they’ve queued for, they will automatically switch to the suitable role upon entering (at no cost) and then switch back automatically when they leave the instance.
 

The March Toward Legion

 
In the weeks following the pre-expansion patch, we’ll be unlocking even more content that leads into the August 30 launch of Legion. We’re still determining the exact timing of these events, but players who pre-purchase Legion can expect to be playing a Demon Hunter around the second or third week of August (no later than August 17 globally). We’ll share more details in the weeks ahead, but here’s a look at what’s in store:
 
Burning Legion Invasions
Before all hellfire breaks loose upon the Broken Shore, the Burning Legion will begin its assault upon Azeroth, turning some familiar stomping grounds into demon-infested battlefields—and it will be up to the heroes of the Alliance and the Horde to face the onslaught.
 
Demon Hunter Early Access
In the weeks before launch, those who have pre-purchased Legion will get early access to the new Demon Hunter class. Players will begin at level 98 and will find themselves on the fel-shattered expanse of Mardum, where they’ll play the Demon Hunter starting experience before joining their allies in the fight against the Legion.
 
The Battle on the Broken Shore Begins
As the situation grows more dire, Azeroth’s heroes will begin their first foray onto the Broken Shore—the epicenter of the demonic invasion.
 
All of the features and content listed above (save for Demon Hunter early access) will be available to all World of Warcraft players, regardless of whether they’ve pre-purchased Legion.

Guild Rank Reset II

With the current status of the guild regarding raiding and PvP I have decided that we should reset the guild ranks so that all members are returned to standard members. The vast majority of people will be unaffected as their rank will remain as Member. For those members of our raid team (Tomb Raiders) and RBG team (Corpse Campers) it will mean that they are returned to the Member rank and will have a small impact:

  • Tomb Raiders will therefore lose their priority on raid spot, loot and access to the raider tab of the guild bank;
  • Corpse Campers will therefore lose their priority on RBG spot and access to the PVP tab of the guild bank;

Once Legion is with us, we shall be rebuilding the RBG and raid teams and people promoted to the ranks of Tomb Raiders and Corpse Campers once more.

Mythic First: Siegecrafter Blackfuse

With the end of Mists of Pandaria closing in and still learning the ways of 20 man raiding last week saw us progress to 11/14 Mythic and hereby matching our 10 man HC progression prior to 6.0.2. The new week however, brought a new challenge as we chose to extend the raid and work on progression only this week and it paid dividends as we killed Siegecrafter Blackfuse on our first pull of the night.
