Updates from @WarcraftDevs - Battle for Azeroth


is the siege of Lordaeron still available for other characters to do after BFA launch or was it removed along with war of thorns?

The Siege of Lordaeron is a permanent part of Battle for Azeroth and a pre-requisite for Kul'Tiras and Zandalar. It will remain playable like Broken Shore was for Legion.

This seems wrong.

This is a "Stealth" mission; sending troops on these missions reduces success chance. You can see this by putting your mouse cursor over the "Stealth" indicator in the upper left.


Quick hunter question: Is it intended that Latent Poison stacks aren't proc'd by raptor strike/mongoose bite when aspect of the eagle is active? Seems odd for the azerite trait to become useless during a utility CD.

Nope, this is a bug. Thanks for the report!

Are allied races supposed to be timegated?

We had some restrictions in place to keep the Allied Races unavailable in Beta, and the restrictions were still in place. This is fixed now and players who hit exalted can proceed. Sorry for the confusion!


We're working on a change to the Auction House, which is now testable on the PTR. Full details here:

No PvP Season today??

The PvP season is temporarily disabled while we clean up some unexpected issues.

No ETA right now, but getting it up and running is our #1 priority at the moment.


Yo @WarcraftDevs I wanna run M+ but my key dropped at +18. I can't grind it down to a doable level because I hit an instance cap.

We quickly fixed the underlying issue that caused some players to receive high level Mythic Keystones. Deleting the key and running another Mythic dungeon will grant you a new Mythic Keystone.

As a reminder, the instance cap is hourly.


We’ve fully identified and eradicated a bug that caused some players to receive an unintended Mythic Cache reward earlier today. We’re working to remove all such unintended rewards from any characters who received them.


Are the quests from new Arathi from Yvera (the portal elf) supposed to be only once per account? If so why?

We've just resolved an issue that prevented additional characters on an account from being eligible for Arathi Highlands quests.
