Patch 8.2.5 - Die offiziellen englischen Patchnotes!

Bisher war es im Laufe von Battle for Azeroth immer so, dass die offiziellen Patchnotes für das nächste Contentupdate nur wenige Tage vor dem Release veröffentlicht wurden. Für Patch 8.2.5 stehen sie nun zur Verfügung, doch gestern erst gab es die Info, dass das Update in den "nächsten Wochen" erscheint. Also es wird immer seltsamer! Wie gewöhnlich stehen bisher auch nur die englischen Patchnotes zu Verfügung, doch wer Lust hat, der kann sie sich einmal durchlesen. Viele Überraschungen gibt es nicht mehr, allerdings ein Haufen von Bugfixes und kleineren Änderungen, die ganz nett sind.

Folgend noch ein paar erwähnenswerte Neuheiten, die bisher nicht bekannt waren. So gibt es ein Update für das Mondfest, welches allerdings erst nächstes Jahr stattfindet, und man darf am Ritual der Monde teilnehmen, um permanente Blumenkronen freizuschalten, die das ganze Jahr lang transmoggt werden können. Zudem wird das Schwarzmarktauktionshaus aktualisiert und mit neuen Items bestückt. Welche genau, das ist bisher nicht klar. Auf dem epischen Schlachtfeld Ashran kann man außerdem ein neues Artefakt ausbuddeln und viele Quests der Kriegskampagne haben keine Rufvoraussetzungen mehr. 
 Patch 8.2.5 Content Update Patch Notes 

New Character Models: Worgen and Goblins

First introduced in World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, worgen and goblins are getting some long-anticipated improvements to their character models. These updates touch on every aspect of how the worgen and goblins look—from their faces to their animations.
 

WoW 15th Anniversary Event

This November is the 15th anniversary of World of Warcraft, and we have some special things planned to commemorate the occasion.

Jubiläumsgeschenk
Players who log in during the event period will receive an Jubiläumsgeschenk in the mail, which includes a Lil' Nefarian battle pet, a Feiertagspaket that increases experience and reputation gains throughout the event, a reusable firework that can be used for the duration of the event, an item that teleports you to the Höhlen der Zeit (usable only during the event), and other in-game goodies.
 

New Raids: Memories of Azeroth
Chromie has separated the strands of time, allowing you to go back and relive epic raid encounters from Burning Crusade, Wrath of the Lich King, and Cataclysm. Each of these limited-time raids will feature three iconic bosses, and they'll be available as their own wings through the Raid Finder. To enter the raid, you need a minimum item level of 380. Players who complete all three wings will receive the achievement Memories of Fel, Frost and Fire which grants the Obsidian Worldbreaker, a Black Dragonflight mount inspired by Todesschwinge.

Return to Alterac Valley of Olde
Run down your enemies, raze their fortifications, and exchange the tokens you loot from their corpses to summon mighty reinforcements in Korrak's Revenge, a throwback Battleground inspired by the earliest days of Alteractal. Players who participate in Korrak's Revenge and complete the Alterac Valley of Olde achievement can earn two new mounts: the Stormpike Battle Ram (Alliance) and the Frostwolf Snarler (Horde).

 

New Quests

Many new stories and adventures are now available across Azeroth.
 

The War Campaign Concludes
Tensions continue to rise between Saurfang, Anduin, and the Banshee Queen Sylvanas. Discover the fate of the Horde and Alliance in the final chapter of the War Campaign.

Magni Bronzebart
With N'Zoth's imminent emergence, you must seek help from an unlikely ally: the Black Prince, Wrathion. Level 120 players should seek out Magni in the Chamber of Heart to continue the story and discover the Black Dragonflight's whereabouts.

 

Making it Easier to Party Up with Friends

Introducing Party Sync
Party Sync is a new feature that makes it easier than ever for friends to party up and quest together. When players activate Party Sync, everyone in the party becomes aligned to the same quest state and phase. By mousing over a quest in your tracker, you can see who's on a given quest, what their progress is, and who's ready to turn it in. You'll also have access to a “replay quest” feature that allows players who have already completed certain quests to replay those quests with their friends for rewards that are appropriate to their current level, regardless of the original level of the quest. Quests can be replayed for rewards once a day.

Relaxing Level Restrictions
We've also relaxed level restrictions, so lower-level players can queue for instanced content (such as Battlegrounds and dungeons) in their level range, and higher-level players can choose to join them by having their level scaled down. Please note that unlike Timewalking, when your level is scaled, you will temporarily lose access to abilities and powers (such as Azerite Traits and over-level spell, abilities, talents, and trinkets' effects) with requirements that exceed your reduced level.

 

Recruit A Friend Returns

Ready to bring your friends to Azeroth and show them the ropes? Doing so is easier than ever with our revamped Recruit A Friend system! If you have active game time, you'll be able to recruit up to 10 friends—both veterans who haven't been subscribed for over two years and newcomers—to share in your adventures. Enjoy 50% bonus experience for faster leveling when you and your recruit are partied together and summon each other once every 30 minutes.
 
The new Recruit A Friend lets you generate a custom link that you can send to your friends. This link will help you connect with each other, and you'll be able to see if they have purchased game time, which will lead to rewards for you! For each month your recruits have active game time, you'll earn a new reward, such as unique pets, mounts, game time, and more. These rewards unlock each month and scale with the amount of time your recruits have subscribed for. And, of course, with Party Sync you'll be able to journey with your friends on any of your characters.
 

New Mount: Honeyback Harvester

Stormsong's Beekeepers have discovered a new hive in town. Alliance players can work with Barry to locate the hive and court the favor of the Hivemother in order to earn the Honeyback Harvester mount—and both factions can earn several other bee-themed toys and items.
 

New Timewalking Raid: Firelands

While Cataclysm Timewalking is active, max-level players will be able to form a raid group and enter the Sulfuron Spire raid. As with previous  Timewalking raids (Der Schwarze Tempel and Ulduar), your gear and power are scaled to the challenge, and all the bosses and rewards you expect lie in wait.
 

Holiday Updates

Oh man wenn man mit dem Patch 8.2.5 das Mondfest updatet, bedeutet das entweder das recht lange kein Patch 8.3 kommt oder man nur schonmal vorgreifen wollte.
Tendenziell wirkt es aber so das wir dieses Jahr keinen Patch 8.3 erwarten brauchen und das Patch 8.2.5 wohl schon den kommenden Mittwoch (25.09.2019) erscheint.

Komisch, dass man als Hordler auch Bienen-Spielzeuge und sowas bekommen kann, aber das Mount dann wieder nicht. Wäre alles Allianz-only, hätte ich es ja verstanden, aber so scheint es sehr wirkürlich zu klingen. Mal sehen, wie es im Spiel ist. Vielleicht gibt es einen Horde-NPC, der Sachen von der Allianz geklaut hat und uns gibt. Nur das Mount halt nicht. Das würde dann noch so halbwegs passen. Aber wenn man als Hordler wie die Allianz Best-Buddy mit den Imkern werden und dann bekommen wir nicht das Mount, das wirkt arg komisch.

Ansonsten scheinen in dem Patch viele viele Kleinigkeiten drinnen zu sein. Und der Abschluss der Kriegskampagne ohne weiteren Raid. Da bin ich storymäßig sehr gespannt.
