The Shadowlands Pre-Expansion Patch is Now Live

Really wish you were delaying the pre patch until about two to three week before launch.


This. Can we get clarification? I assumed this would be like every other expansion and the Mythic mounts would go to 1% on expansion release, not pre-patch. However, in the video they specifically show both Mythic mounts when talking about what is going away with the pre-patch without mentioning anything concrete.


so, I guess BFA is goin into the battle chest?

Everything looks great, except for that pointless level squish. Are we getting refunds for boosts/time played leveling characters?


Not so much that you don’t deserve them. More that if you don’t have them by now you probably wouldn’t be getting them anyway. I didn’t think I was going to get AotC for ny’alotha. Started months into the tier, took about 2 months of pure pugging to achieve. Haven’t killed any more bosses in months. If I can pug my way to it easily in time, anyone who was going to get it should have had it by now.

Only have about 40 hours left I’m not popping my last token until a week before SL.

I’m not sure where your information is coming from Kalli, but a full expedient destro lock is not broken. It is very op to play if you know how to play it.

Well, looks like i was completely wrong here, so have removed my dumb post :rofl:

That is incorrect information.

What about the reputation requirements removal for the allied races? You said it would be on the prepatch, is it coming or not?

The pre-patch is next week!! Thank Yogg!! Cause as Garrosh said,

Wait why am i being pinged if you are replying to someone else

The drop rates of the mythic raid boss mounts won’t be reduced until Shadowlands so there’s still time to collect them. :smile:

Feel free to refer to the Time Runs Short article for all the details of what’s going away and what’s going to be more difficult to obtain in the pre-expansion patch and Shadowlands.

Edited to align with the Time Runs Short article.


Yea that’s not true, it just doesn’t feel good to know the shoe fits.

That’s fantastic news! We can get our whole guild the Mythic N’Zoth mount! Thank you!

Excuse me blizz, where are the troll beards?

And the mount for Nzoth heroic too?

Edit: According to the Time Runs Short: Battle for Azeroth article, this is going away with Shadowlands launch, but Ahead of the Curve will be gone with the pre-patch.
