    Time Runs Short: Battle for Azeroth

    Time Runs Short: Battle for Azeroth

But before you journey to the Shadowlands, you may want to spend your remaining moments in the mortal realms seeking out a few rewards that will no longer be obtainable (or will be more difficult to acquire) in the next expansion.

    Read on for the full list, and make sure to collect everything you’ve been eyeing before time runs out.

    • Going Away with Shadowlands Launch
    • Going Away with Shadowlands Pre-patch
    • Difficulty Increasing When Shadowlands Launches

    How to Claim Your Dragon

    When Azeroth’s heroes depart for the Shadowlands, the last vestiges of N’Zoth the Corruptor will fade away—and the “Lost Flight” quest, which rewards the Uncorrupted Voidwing mount, will vanish along with him.


    Uncorrupted Voidwing

    To earn: Enter the raid Ny’alotha, the Waking City on Heroic difficulty and defeat N’Zoth the Corruptor. You’ll want to be around 445 item level and be accompanied by at least 15 others in gear of similar quality to take down the Old God.

    Upon defeating N’Zoth, you’ll loot an item that grants you the “Lost Flight” quest, which can be turned in for your Uncorrupted Voidwing.

    You can further prepare for the climatic final boss in Battle of Azeroth by watching the N’Zoth the Corruptor FatbossTV guide.

    TIP: Ashjra’kamas, Shroud of Resolve is a must-have for all members of your raid group when fighting N’Zoth the Corruptor. Those without the legendary cloak will succumb to an instant mind-control mechanic, becoming a Servant of N’Zoth who will ravage your raid. Follow our guide to obtain your legendary cloak.

    Estimated time: 2 hours


    If you need aid, some fellow heroes in the community are willing to help those who want to earn their Uncorrupted Voidwing. Check out the list below, and read their guidelines to find out how to participate.



    Your Heart Only for Azeroth

    The Heart of Azeroth, the legendary necklace you’ve kept close to your own hearts, derives its power from your connection to Azeroth. You’ll find that connection weakens when you step foot into areas or instances not introduced in Battle for Azeroth, severing features that derive power from it—Essences and Azerite Traits. The potency of these powers will reactivate whenever you return to eligible regions and instances (e.g. Horrific Visions.

    Your Essences Preferences

    If you’re trying to collect the prestigious title Azeroth’s Champion, be sure to add earning the achievement Phenomenal Cosmic Power to your list of things to do, as all Rank 4 Essences can no longer be earned once Shadowlands strikes.

    To earn: Infuse the Heart of Azeroth with all available Essences from the Rise of Azshara update for any role at Rank 4. Refer to Wowhead’s comprehensive Essence collection guide to get started!

    Mind-Blowing Mount


    The prestige achievement Battle for Azeroth Keystone Master: Season Four and its reward the Awakened Mindborer mount will only be available to earn prior to the release of Shadowlands. To earn the achievement and mount, you must complete all Battle for Azeroth Season Four dungeons at Mythic Level 15 or higher, within the time limit.

    Unsure of your current progress? See which Keystones you need to complete by checking your progress in the Mythic Keystone section in the Group Finder (default hotkey: i).

    Extinction Event


    Mighty Caravan Brutosaur

    Just like the real dinosaurs that once walked our own earth, the Mighty Caravan Brutosaur’s days in Azeroth are numbered. Once the Shadowlands pre-patch goes live, the shady vendors Talutu and Tricky Nick will cease selling it. The Mighty Caravan Brutosaur will then trek from its Battle for Azeroth vendors to the Black Market Auction House where it can show up occasionally as a purchasable mount for players to bid on. The accompanying Feat of Strength Conspicuous Consumption will be earned upon purchase.

    To earn: Purchase for 5,000,000 gold from Talutu in Grand Bazaar, Dazar’alor (Horde) or Tricky Nick in Hook Point, Boralus (Alliance).

    Corruption Cleansed

    With the Black Empire turned to ash, the Old Gods’ power of Corruption will wither away once the Shadowlands pre-patch goes live. Your Corruption-tainted items will shed away their dark power, leaving your gear in its pure form. With Corruption no longer a threat, the Corruption Resistance found on certain Essences and your legendary cloak will also dissipate.

    Utter Madness

    One of the more challenging achievements to arise in Visions of N’Zoth—Mad World—will no longer be acquirable once the pre-patch goes live. If you successfully earn the Feat of Strength, you’ll be granted a fitting title, “the Faceless One.”

    To earn: Complete all objectives in the Horrific Visions of Stormwind and Orgrimmar in a single visit while not in a party and with all 5 Faceless Masks active.

    Changing of the Seasons

    The current PvP Season will end with the pre-patch, taking with it all of the usual earnable rewards for eligible players who end the season in the top 0.1% of the 3v3 arena ladder. To commemorate this feat, these elite players will earn the Corrupted Gladiator title, Corrupted Gladiator’s Tabard, and the Corrupted Gladiator mount.

    Top of the Class

    Just as with previous raids at the end of an expansion, the Ahead of the Curve and Cutting Edge achievements for defeating N’Zoth the Corruptor on Heroic and Mythic difficulties will go away at the beginning of pre-patch. In addition to earning limited-time achievements, you’ll also get your Uncorrupted Voidwing and—for those seeking to get Cutting Edge—have a chance to get the Ny’alotha Allseer mount for defeating N’Zoth on Mythic difficulty.

    The Truth Hertz

    In the same vein as Rank 4, the achievement Hertz Locker which grants the Rank 4 Essence Vision of Perfection will become unobtainable, but earlier during pre-patch.

    To earn: Within a single lockout, defeat all bosses in Operation: Mechagon and prevent the destruction of all non-robotic life on Azeroth without any player dying on Mythic difficulty.

    Some mounts and achievements will become more difficult to acquire due to drop rates changing or requirements going away with Shadowlands.

    Mythic Mounts

    When you sail away from Battle for Azeroth, the current guaranteed drop rate for the Glacial Tidestorm and Ny’alotha Allseer mounts will significantly decrease, and the amount of dropped mounts will decrease to one (currently two).


    Glacial Tidestorm

    Glacial Tidestorm: Defeat Mythic Lady Jaina Proudmoore in Battle of Dazar’alor on Mythic difficulty. You’ll need 20 players total to enter the raid, and it’s recommended that all players are 415 item level or higher. You can further prepare for Mythic Lady Jaina Proudmoore by watching the Mythic Lady Jaina Proudmoore FatbossTV guide.


    Ny’alotha Allseer

    Ny’alotha Allseer: Defeat Mythic N’Zoth the Corruptor in Ny’alotha, the Waking City on Mythic difficulty. You’ll need 20 players total to enter the raid, and it’s recommended that all players are 470 item level or higher. You can further prepare for Mythic N’Zoth the Corruptor by watching the Mythic N’Zoth Complexity Limit guide.

    Please note that the corresponding Cutting Edge: N’Zoth the Corruptor achievement will no longer be available to earn once Shadowlands goes live.

    As these instances are both Mythic difficulty, we expect defeating Mythic Jaina Proudmoore and Mythic N’Zoth will still require a fair amount of coordination to defeat in Shadowlands—so if you want either of these mounts, you may want to consider taking advantage of the guaranteed drop rate.

    There are also some heroes in the community who are willing to help those who want to earn their Glacial Tidestorm or Ny’alotha Allseer mounts—check out their information below!

    I knew I didn't have a snowball's chance at getting the title "Azeroth's Champion", but this still makes me sad.

    Indeed it does and that's their new business model. Replacing content with rewards that disappear for no reason, replacing end game content with repeatable endless grind for imaginary points that increase player's power. Fail to log in - miss out on stuff.

    What a disgusting company has Blizzard become.
    Trump is what Americans crave. He's got electrolytes!

    Taking prestige away from people who earned rewards when content is relevant makes blizzard pieces of shit? Or maybe you're just bitter than you're not good enough.

    AOTC mount going away makes sense. Mythic mounts dropping to 1% makes sense. Brutosaur? Fuck no. Essence title? lol who cares.

    Really shitty of them to make Azeroth's Champion so damned grindy. Should've been the Legend of Pandaria-equivalent.

    And 2 million left until 5 million here, with MINIMAL gameplay as I'm busy IRL and when I have time to play, I wanna play GW2. Gonna make it before pre-patch at this rate I'm sure.

    It’s a shame. I really wanted that Heroic Nyalotha mount, but I’ve not raided since Dragon Soul and my gear is likely not good enough to pug with (465).
    My friend’s guild stopped raiding the week after she promised she’d take me along for the friends&family raids, typical.

    Ah well.

    Woah, they released this blue post. Sounds like pre-patch would hit sooner than i expected (i expected it to hit in October).
    I guess September is the month with SL launch in October.

    Just buy the mount for gold in a boost if you really want it. I can’t imagine it’s that much atm.

    There won't be a Gamescom. Corona. Remember?

    Disagree. I enjoy earning these achievements knowing that my time spent counts for something. I would not be motivated to go for the hard ones if I knew there was always a safety net waiting at the end of an expansion.

    It's a good title though in general. Regardless of hate for BfA or not (And honestly I'd still say BfA was better than WoD).

    I doubt I'll ever get the rating for rank 4 CnS, otherwise I would have made more of a push to round up the last few rank 4s.

    Oh yeah Azeroth's Champion is such a fitting title, I'm sure Azeroth is excited about us mindlessly murdering the other champions on battlegrounds / arenas
