Looking for Volunteers!

The Warcraft Secrets Team is looking to widen our community contributions both from and to us! Namely, we’re looking for volunteers to help us with some articles and content on the website.

We would appreciate any kind of help, as our main goal is to give as much to the community as we’re able. If somebody is interested, you can contact us either via the Contact Page, or just by poking one of the Staff members on our Discord Server.

With less than a week left until Battle for Azeroth launch, several achievements, mounts and items will become more difficult to obtain, and the Violet Spellwing mount will be removed from the game.

Raid and Dungeon Meta Achievements

The Raid and Dungeon Meta Achievements from Legion are not being removed, however as focus switches to Battle for Azeroth, groups will be focusing on newer content and it may be harder to find groups for them for a while. These achievements will become easier in Battle for Azeroth, however some achievements will still need multiple players or not be soloable.

Hellfire Infernal and Shackled Ur’zul

The http://www.wowhead.com/item=137575/fiendish-hellfire-core from Mythic Gul’dan and http://www.wowhead.com/item=152789/shackled-urzul from Mythic Argus the Unmaker are both having their drop rates reduced to approximately 1% on the launch of Battle for Azeroth.

Fisherfriends of the Isles and Conjurer Margoss

The Fisherfriends of the Isles and http://www.wowhead.com/npc=108825/conjurer-margoss are fishing reputations and NPCs. The Fisherfriends are not being removed, however will become more difficult as less people will be making or joining fishing groups for older content as Battle for Azeroth releases. Each Fisherfriend rotates on a daily basis, and getting Best Friend with all Fisherfriends rewards http://wowhead.com/achievement=11725/fisherfriend-of-the-isles as well as the Hidden Appearances for the http://www.wowhead.com/item=133755/underlight-angler.

Violet Spellwing

The http://www.wowhead.com/item=152901/kirin-tor-summoning-crystal, which summons the Violet Spellwing mount, will be made unobtainable on the release of Battle for Azeroth. The Violet Spellwing can simply be obtained from deafeating Heroic Argus the Unmaker.

Time is running out, and if you cannot afford to buy a carry then you should check the following Discord Communities for a chance at the mount:

Talon’s Vengeance

Talons Vengeance is a PvP faction unlocked through one of the four quest lines for the Falcosaur mounts.http://www.wowhead.com/item=142363/mark-of-prey are the only way to get reputation with this faction. From Neutral to Honored, you must farm these off players at either PvP areas or Falcosaur world quest areas using http://www.wowhead.com/item=142361/ivory-talon. From Honored, you can buy http://www.wowhead.com/item=142367/ivory-feather, allowing you to get Marks of Prey in Battlegrounds. Due to less players being in Legion zones, this reputation will be a lot harder to get to Honored.

Long-Forgotten Hippogryph

The Long Forgotten-Hippogryph is now harder to find because of Cross Realm Zone changes. As of pre-patch, the Broken Isles have been merged with other realms, meaning far less opportunities to find the crystals for this mount.

Check out the guide to Long-Forgotten Hippogryph to learn more about this mount.

Community Manager Ythisens has confirmed that the final part of the pre-patch event, The Siege of Lordaeron, will no longer need the pre-purchase of Battle for Azeroth to access and complete. Ythisens has also clarified that the https://bfa.wowhead.com/item=158075/heart-of-azeroth will be available as Battle for Azeroth launches.

Originally Posted by Blizzard (Source)It was previously communicated that you would need to pre-purchase Battle for Azeroth to play the final part of the 8.0 pre-patch event tomorrow, The Siege of Lordaeron, however, this is no longer the case and we have changed it to now be available regardless of prepurchasing the expansion!

As we go into the final week of pre-patch events, it is worth noting that the http://www.wowhead.com/item=163127/smoldering-reins-of-the-teldrassil-hippogryph and http://www.wowhead.com/item=163128/war-torn-reins-of-the-undercity-plaguebat will be made unobtainable on the release of Battle for Azeroth.

Blizzard has changed how Class Trials work, preventing them from looting some specific rare mounts. Previously, class trials were used to check several different realms for rare mounts, often to share or speed up the camping process, which is no longer possible for some.

The following mounts cannot be looted on trial characters:

  • Aeonaxx
  • Time-Lost Proto Drake
  • Poseidus
  • Huolon


The following mounts can be looted on trial characters:

  • Draenor Rares such as Poundfist and Pathrunner
  • Warbringers
  • Grey Riding Camel
  • Alani
  • Garrison Bosses
  • Long Forgotten Hippogryph


https://www.wowhead.com/item=121815/voidtalon-of-the-dark-star is yet to be confirmed as being lootable or not by Class Trial Characters.

Thanks to Cougarlee from the Secret Finding Discord for reporting on this find. Make sure to join their discord and check the #mounts channel for more updates on this hidden change.
