Patch 7.3.5 PTR - Build 25727
Build 25727 will be deployed to the PTR realms soon. This is a small build that cleans up some data and includes some new UI portraits for the new races.


PTR Development Notes Build 25727

This week, we’ve deployed a new build that again focuses on bugfixes for the 7.3.5 PTR. We’re continuing to primarily test the new level 1-100 zone and dungeon scaling, as it’s an extensive change to how loot, quests, and creatures work in the open world. We’re looking for as much feedback as we can get about how things are working out.

We ask that players continue to focus some of your testing on the questlines in Blade's Edge Mountains, Duskwood, Hellfire Peninsula, Icecrown, Kun-Lai Summit, Nagrand, Storm Peaks, Terokkar Forest, Vashj'ir, and Wetlands. Feedback on the difficulty, pacing, and most importantly, any bugs you might find while completing quests in these zones would be most helpful.

Please post your level scaling feedback here.

A new questline in Silithus and the new Seething Shore PvP Battleground are coming online with this build. Get ready to Play With The Blues on the PTR on Tuesday, December 19 from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. PST. The Seething Shore is a 10v10 race to gather Azerite on an island near Silithus, and we hope you’ll be able to join us there and test it thoroughly on Tuesday. Please post Seething Shore feedback here.

As always, thank you very much for participating in the PTR!

Allied Race Unlock Requirements
We've dug into the criteria files that power the new 'quest unlock' achievements in order to see exactly what is required to unlock the new Allied Race questlines, which in turn unlock the ability to create the race.

We'll need clarification from the developers to be sure, but it appears that all four Hidden Tracking Achievements for the Allied Race questline unlocks are marked as Account-wide. This should mean that you could get the reputation on one character, the required quest achievement on another, and then start the questline on yet another character, regardless of faction or server, if you wished to do so.

Remember, though, that in the previous PTR build we datamined a requirement to have a Level 110 character on the realm you are attempting to create an Allied Race character on.

    I wonder if this tiny build is proof that a release build will be patched in soon-ish?

    Genuinely hoping we get 7.3.5 in early January.

    I imagine so.

    Even though it's a minor patch I'm going to speculate here they want it to collide with 4.2 for FF14. They've done similar things before.

    Sure it sounds silly from what I'm saying but it's actually pretty smart. Me personally I'd play both games at that time. But 7.3.5 would probably garner some more interest towards WoW in that situation just as 4.2 would garner interest.

    Each patch i am more and more convinced that allied races comes in 7.3.5 ... 70 % sure.

    Oh look, they released quick build that mostly sort out stuff for Allied Races that are totally not coming with 7.3.5.

    The old allied race info strings were straight from the BFA site https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/ba...s/allied-races

    7.3.5 will likely coincide (IE 1-2 weeks after) with the last LFR wing, as the story picks up from after Sargeras stabs the planet.

    Playable Allied Races will not be a part of it. I'd venture sometime around March/April when BfA is pre-order-able will be when Allied Races are available for play (with pre-order of BfA).

    I guess the new allied race descriptions are easier to read at a glance, but I prefer the old ones.

    Agreed. I think the old version was just fine.

    Looks like the BfA preorder should be online this week (before Xmas)?

    Aye the same i thought yesterday.... and the price of the wowtoken will rise into new dimensions

    And im sure 4 of the 6 allied races will come to 7.3.5 if you preorder the Addon. i think a fitting Epilog for Legion with this 4 races.

    That's what I thought. 4 of 6 Allies are playable in 7.3.5 when you preorder BfA, Zandalari Trolls and Dark Iron Dwarves after the BfA launch.

    The new sub races are not worth a pre-order. Last preorder I did was WoD and I don't go there again without more information of the upcoming expac. Not hyped for BfA yet. Looks terriboring

    All Allied Races requirements listed above (Legion lore master/diplomat) are also part of Legion Pathfinder (required for flying on the Broken Isles), and they are account-wide. Or am I missing something?

    Seriously hope they reconsider on the 'Requires 110 on this server' thing.

    I knew Void Elves would be Argussian Reach
  1. Mustardisbad's Avatar
    So horde have to farm out 2 full, different reps to exalted and all alliance has to do is complete the argus questlines? Yeah thats balanced.
