Newsletter Feb 5: Battle for Azeroth

Hello, readers.

Love is in the Air and along with it the noxious scent of undead alchemists, only mostly masked by their bone-dissolving perfumes.

This year, due to an excess of pets, we are not running a donation drive for the holiday. However, the call to arms is going out, and if you find yourself with an extra pet or three we'll be happy to find them a home.

On a completely different note, you will notice the pre-purchase of Battle for Azeroth is available, and if you pre-purchase you can gain access to the new allied races. Along with this you will note a few changes. Everybody now has access to four more character slots per realm, although the character cap of 50 remains.

Blizzard have also introduced a major change to Argus world quests. Any rare elite world quest now qualifies as both Army of the Light and Argussian Reach. If you have not fully unlocked Mac'Aree you will now find it a lot easier to complete the Argussian Reach emissary quest.

I hope you all have a good week.


Piwakawaka.

New Avatars
This week we have the privilege of featuring two new avatars for you, our forum members, to use. Our industrious artist @Hollthulhu is steadily working to give you all a selection of cute pet avatars and the Pawprint Press is going to feature new avatars as they are uploaded.

If you are uncertain on where to find these awesome little cuties, clicking on your current avatar will provide you with a drop down menu. Clicking on the User Control Panel will lead you to a series of tabs. Click on Profile along the top, and along the left side you'll find Edit Avatar, third button down from the top. By Avatar Type is a drop down where you can choose to upload an image, or choose a gallery image. All of our cuties can be found under gallery images.

I hope you like our latest additions.

Wild Pet Capture Service
Above all else... A3 loves collecting pets! Collection doesn't just stop at pets that can be traded and adopted though - there are a few worlds' worth of wild pets out there waiting for collectors, too! A few of us would like to offer our love of hunting wild pets to A3 members to help them also round out their wild pet needs.

Each week (sometimes a few times each week!) we will comb zones to help members find the wild pets they are still after. We will turn a zone upside-down and inside-out looking for your pet(s) and message you once we've found them. You will then come and capture it! If you would like to take advantage of this service, but aren't available during our typical times, please don't hesitate to contact us and ask about alternative days and times.

Specifications Allowed

✔ Both Factions
✔ All Zones
✔ All Pets
✔ Any Quality
✔ Any Breed
✔ Any Specifics (color, size, etc.)

Pet Suppliers
Do you want to help supply pets for adoption that A3 needs? We have a Pet Suppliers thread where members can sign up to sponsor certain pets they are willing to supply. When the supply of certain pets starts to run low or we have an upcoming project where we’ll need more of a certain pet – we’ll send out a notification about that pet to our suppliers! There is no guess work and no 24/7 farming because we’ll let you know when we’re in need of the pets.

There are no quotas to meet when supplying the pets that you signed up for. You can provide whatever amount you are comfortable with.

New supply options were recently added! New options include common vendor and non-Legion pets.
There are 100's of supply options available, but below you will find the newest options added to the supply request sign-up sheet. These options are especially in need of suppliers right now.

Please note that the sign-up sheet is organized according to which expansion each pet was introduced in, not the expansion "zone" that they are found in.

Whether entering a one-time competition or requesting your weekly pets, please remember these essential tips so your requests and entries aren't disqualified.

  •   Remember to keep an active level 20+ character attached to your site profile. It is a good idea to log in to this character before posting adoption requests to refresh your armory information.

      Please remember to check what pets you have before submitting requests! Add-ons don't always display things accurately.

      Please remember to report your request list if you acquire a pet you have requested. We've modified our system so that even if your post has already been flagged you can still report and make changes.

Pre-purchase Battle for Azeroth™ Now!
World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth is now available for pre-purchase through the Blizzard Shop and in-game shop! When you pre-purchase a digital copy, you’ll receive a level 110 character boost to use immediately. You can also begin the journey to unlock the expansion’s new playable Allied Races: the Highmountain Tauren, Lightforged Draenei, Void Elves, and Nightborne. And if you level an Allied Race character from 20–110*, you’ll earn a distinctive Heritage Armor set—a lasting symbol of your dedication and commitment to Azeroth.

Love is in the Air — Everywhere You Look Around
Something is in the air in the major cities of Azeroth. Many guards and townsfolk spend their days giving and receiving gifts to other amorous citizens.

Currents of conflict may be in the air once more between the Horde and Alliance, but there’s time enough for love during the Love Is in the Air holiday event.

When: February 2–16
Where: Orgrimmar (Horde) and Stormwind (Alliance)
Currency: Love Tokens

Read the full details here.
Building Reputation with Allied Races
The first of the playable Allied Races in World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth are available beginning with the pre-purchase of the upcoming expansion, but in order to gain access to them and unlock their potential, you’ll need to convince them to join your cause.

To help guide you with your task, we’ve put together some tips to recruit each Allied Race and fullfill their unlock requirements.

Clarifications on Holiday Loot

Hey all,

A quick update on changes to Holiday Loot with the launch of 'Love is in the Air' today:

When we changed Holiday dungeons to scale based on a player’s level, we aimed to increase participation in those dungeons. We also wanted to avoid a situation where a player with an army of low-level characters had a better chance at receiving account-wide rewards than a player with one or two max-level characters. At the same time, we didn't want to impact the amount of chances that players who maintain several max-level characters had in previous years.

As a compromise, we made account-wide rewards a random drop for any character capable of participating in current-expansion content. For the remainder of Legion, players level 98 and above fit that criteria. The minimum level requirement will increase again in Battle for Azeroth, and will continue to increase in future expansions.

Connecting A3ers through Discord
Image
A3 is always looking for new and interesting ways to connect with its members. One of our greatest hurdles, though, is connecting members to each other. With everyone playing on different servers, different factions, and the limitations of the friends list – many of you have probably never had a chance to connect. We hope to use the Discord App to help solve that!

The major perk of an app like Discord is that communication is live. Meaning – you can see it on the fly (assuming you are logged in). This will be an advantage over the forum or twitter where you need to check in throughout the day. It will be especially helpful with organizing groups, sharing rare spawn information with others, or just getting to know your fellow A3ers!
