Battle for Azeroth Season 3 Ends Next Week

Battle for Azeroth Season 3 will end with the launch of Visions of N’Zoth. When maintenance begins early on January 14, both PvP and Mythic Keystone competition will close, and a one-week off-season for those activities will begin.

During the off-season, Mythic Keystone dungeons will still be playable using Season 3 affixes and rewards, but their seasonal achievements will no longer be available. Additionally, it will still be possible to queue for Rated PvP based on your Season 3 rating, but titles and associated rewards will no longer be earnable. The end-of-season rankings will close when Visions of N’Zoth goes live.

  • As always, we ask that competitive players refrain from transferring character(s) to another realm or faction until after BFA Season 4 has begun.

BFA Season 4 will begin one week after the content update, along with the opening of Ny’alotha, a new seasonal affix for Mythic Keystone dungeons, and the availability of higher item-level Azerite gear.

Additionally, Azshara’s Eternal Palace raid achievements such as Ahead of the Curve and Cutting Edge will be obtainable throughout the off-season. You can continue to earn both of them right up until Ny’alotha opens.

We’ll see you on the field of battle!


Will the maintenance be a long one?

Will Titan Residuum reset on the 14th? or will it be usable in the off season?


What is the cap ilvl for end dungeon caches rewards during off season (or pvp) ? Will it be able to proc corrupted?


gets converted to silver

Can you confirm residuum is going to be converted at 1s, not the 10s it was for a short time on the PTR?

So is residuum reset on the 14th or the 21st?


BFA S4, it’s time to update the Quartermaster’s Prize from 40 (8 weeks if you’re lucky) to 20 (4 weeks with luck).


Thanks. This means I still have time to get that pesky +10 SotS out of the way. I can go to bed and be up for my 9am meeting. Lol.

does this mean that i won’t be able to collect pieces for the rank 3 strife essence next week?

how long will the off-time last?

Asking for a second time. When does current titan residuum get changed into silver? Will that be the 14th or the 21st? The post on residuum changes says “When Season 4 Starts”
This post says S4 starts Jan 21st (a one week off season from January 14-20.
Does that mean We can save Residuum to spend January 15 or will all of S3 Residuum be converted on the maintenance of the 14th?
If I am missing some post clarifying the date residuum will be converted to silver, please post link.

For Mythic +…
Do the keys this week roll over into the first week of season 4, or if I run an off-season key… will that be?
