The latest content update for World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth adds two Allied Races, significant changes to player professions, and a new mystery to solve.
The long-awaited Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth update 8.1.5 is released today, bringing with it a number of game-changing additions.
Top-billed are two new Allied Races who joined forces on the frontlines of the Battle of Dazar’alor: the Zandalari Troll, and Kul Tiran Human. The new races are available with the Druid, Hunter, Mage, Monk, Paladin, Priest, Rogue, Shaman, and Warrior classes.
Another key addition is Tools of the Trade, a new series of quests that gives players with crafting professions the chance to earn special tools that provide unique bonuses or abilities. Players will need to be at least level 120, and have a skill level of 150 with either the Kul Tiran or Zandalari unlocked to begin a quest.
Meanwhile, there’s trouble afoot at the Brawlers’s Guild. The guild’s quartermaster has been murdered, and a new quest line gives players a dastardly murder mystery to solve.
The update also includes the next quests in the ongoing War Campaign, and more content for the Magni Bronzebeard’s mission. From April 17, players will also be able to venture below Stormsong Valley for a new, two-boss raid that will lead into Battle for Azeroth’s second major update, Rise of Azshara.
