WoW: Shadowlands pre-patch release date
The pre-patch launches on October 13 at 6 am PDT for the U.S. realms and on Wednesday at 3 pm CEST in Europe. There is no set date for the main expansion itself as of now. Below mentioned are some of the changes in this pre-patch:
- Players will be able to remake their character. This includes a large number of additional customization options for the character that are unlocked in this pre patch - new eye, skin and hair colors, tattoos, faces, jewelry.
- Now the players can start an allied race toon as the reputation requirements to start an allied race character are not removed in this pre patch. Players can now pick one of the ten allies they want to choose and start leveling them up. However, they will have to complete all the quests related to that character race.
- The new level cap will now be level 60 in Shadowlands and is capped to 50 in the pre-patch, which means that for a short period of time the max-level for the characters in WoW will actually be lower-level than the classic WoW. Blizzard has also mentioned that the 1-50 leveling experience will be about 30 percent faster than the 1-120 experience previously.
- There will be a new mentoring game system in which the experienced players will be allowed to guide the new players via a special chat channel. All the new players will be added to this channel automatically for asking questions. The players with a decent level of experience can volunteer to be the mentors in this channel by going through the guide recruiter system in Orgrimmar for Horde, or in Stormwind for Alliance.
