The Battle for Azeroth expansion for World of Warcraft draws near, and while we wait for the expansion's August 14, 2018 launch, we get the second “Warbringers” animation. It depicts the current warchief of the Horde, Sylvanas Windrunner, and the lessons she picked up from her old enemy, the Lich King Arthas. Check it out:
Sylvanas Windrunner, warchief of the Horde, leads her forces to victory against the night elves of Darnassus and moves to conquer their home: the World Tree, Teldrassil. But a chance encounter with a dying young Sentinel who questions her motives and tells her that she cannot win the war she is truly fighting—a war on life itself—leads Sylvanas to make a decision that will change the course of history on Azeroth.
And if you visit the official World of Warcraft website, you'll find the schedule and brief overview for the upcoming Battle for Azeroth PvP and PvE content:
MAKE (AND PLAY) NEW FRIENDS!
With the release of Battle for Azeroth on August 14, players will begin their journey toward bringing two new Allied Races to the fold: Mag’har orcs and Dark Iron dwarves. You’ll earn their loyalty through the expansion’s War Campaign and will need to meet the following requirements to add their might to your faction:
There’s plenty of ground to cover in Battle for Azeroth, and it all comes down to where you’ll focus your efforts first.
- Reach level 120
- Become Exalted with the key subfaction from your side’s War Campaign:
- Alliance: 7th Legion
- Horde: The Honorbound
- Complete the War Campaign in Kul Tiras and Zandalar and earn the Achievement Ready for War (both Horde and Alliance).
Millenia ago, seeking to understand the nature of their eternal foe, the titans constructed this sprawling underground facility to research and quarantine captured specimens. They hoped that by studying the void energy that bound the Old Gods, probing it for weaknesses and reactions, they could find some way to neutralize it. They were horribly, horribly wrong. The facility was sealed away so that the horrors within would never be unleashed upon Azeroth. But now those seals have broken. . . .

BATTLE FOR AZEROTH: MYTHIC KEYSTONE DUNGEON SEASON 1 – SEPTEMBER 4
We’re adding a new layer to Mythic Keystone Dungeons with the introduction of Mythic Dungeon seasons that align with the latest content and rewards. As a part of Season 1, we will be introducing using a new seasonal affix—Infested—which will appear on level 10 or higher Keystones. The Infested affix reflects the extent of the corruption of the blood god G’huun as it seeps out into Azeroth to infect select denizens of each dungeon. With each new season, we’ll be changing out this third affix to keep players on their toes. How will you deal with these new dangers?
