Join us live on Twitch.tv/Warcraft Thursday, March 15, at 11:00 a.m. PDT (6:00 PM GMT), as we sit down with Game Director Ion Hazzikostas for our next live developer Q&A where he’ll be answering your World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth Alpha questions.

You can submit your questions here in this thread or on Twitter by using the hashtag #WarcraftQA.

As a reminder, please keep your questions short (40 words or less) so that we can get to as many questions as possible. We look forward to you joining us live on Thursday!
Nightborne models seems lacking, the face presets look like old people, not even a single young option.

Also comparing their faces to the Nightborne NPCs from Surammar it's obvious the eyes are too wide open on the payable models.

Edit: Also, how about some face hair/adornments options?

Are their models done or still a WiP?
When will the Highmountain Tauren with their glorious antlers be learning the ways of the Paladin?
We've seen datamined Dark Iron Totems, and some lore in the alpha regarding Zandalari Paladins. Can we expect these race/class combos to become available?
Open beta target date estimate?
Can we get some talk about the Azerite System? How powerful will Azerite "traits" be for someone doing casual WQ gameplay vs someone who raids Heroic full time? Any example top-tier traits?
How will we be able to transmog our Bear and Cat forms from out artifact weapons in Battle for Azeroth?
Will we be seeing more cosmetic forms outside of racial ones?
Also any chance of Mookin getting diffrent cosmetic forms?
So, where do you see Warfronts sitting on the reward to work scale in the end game? Will this be the type of thing where I get some randoms from guild chat to knock off on a Sunday night, or a scheduled thing where my 20-man raid team dedicates an evening to clearing? Heavy on cosmetic rewards or high-end gear?
Will the pre-purchase Allied Races receive more customization options or animation tweaks? Currently some of them have far less options than others.
So we know through datamining that Zandalari get awesome druid forms. What are the Alliance getting to compete with that, and also to balance out the Allied Race count now that Horde is also getting Mag'har?
Please remove dominant mind from shadowpriest, and replace it with spectral guise.
Transmogable trenchcoats when?
With the announcement of patch 7.3.5, players were told that mob scaling would be brought to the game world, but they were not told that the stats of heirlooms would be reduced, dungeon experience rewarded would be reduced, mob health would be substantially increased, and that the overall leveling experience would be slowed down. What was Blizzard hoping to achieve with these changes, and do they feel that slowing down the leveling process is a good thing for the health of the playerbase, overall, in regards to current-tier content?

Currently, there doesn't seem to be any middle ground in the leveling process, as heirlooms alone cost quite a bit of gold, but the 50% increase in experience feels minuscule after 7.3.5. So, will players who wish to level at a quicker pace be given an alternative, rather than spending $60 for an instant level boost?
IS THERE A NEW SECRET TO BE FOUND? A few of us are going crazy in the Secrets Discord after finding the Obsidian Deathwarder.
When are mages getting new, updated, and better looking portals?

What's going to happen to our Underlight Angler Artifacts?
Can you give us an indicator of what to expect with Zandalari/Dark Iron Dwarf unlocks? And if future races will continue to be introduced as "Allied" races as opposed to a different delivery or narrative?
What happened with the "we went too far with the pruning"?
Since pets are the core element of BM play over that of MM and SV, how will they be enhanced to further BM's role and not feel like a nerf?
In Legion, we got a small look at upcoming spells and some design direction for classes/roles that was a bit more specific than what we've seen so far. Are we going to see something like that for BFA and any sort of idea when? Some class communities are a bit...anxious over what they're losing from Legion but haven't had a larger rework done so an idea of what is to come might be helpful even if the full rework isn't complete.
Any more details on WPvP while flagged? So far, bonuses and rewards don't sound very compelling, and the community has some suggestions on objectives and activities you can only participate in while flagged.
