[Update]: WoW's Update 8.2.5 has now brought with it the epic conclusion to the War Campaign.

After spending a considerable amount of time on the test servers, World of Warcraft's long-awaited Patch 8.2 has now finally arrived. It brings with it a brand new storyline focused around stopping Queen Azshara, a somewhat reworked Heart of Azeroth system, as well as two hefty new zones to explore: Nazjatar and Mechagon.

There's also a whole bunch of balance changes and quality of life fixes, new profession items to toy around with, the last step towards flying in the new zones, as well as a whole bunch of new mounts and pets to collect. Speaking of cosmetics, it's also important to mention that the Tauren and Gnomes have now received their very own Heritage Armor!

If you're wondering what all of this looks like in gameplay terms, as well as how pretty the new zones truly are, allow me to share with you the recently posted 'features' trailer. Have a gander, it's a pretty informative one:

That's pretty much everything you need to know before jumping in, but if you're looking for all of the details on Patch 8.2, you'll find what you seek over at the official website. Have fun, and don't click on the fancy new cinematics unless you're willing to risk some spoilers!
