Artifact Appearance Availability in BFA

Battle for Azeroth Beta General Discussion
1 2 3 7 Next
As testing continues in the Battle for Azeroth Beta, and we specifically consider the transition from Legion to BFA, we’ve decided to make the existing Keystone Master achievement permanent. There will not be a new achievement for completing a Mythic 15 or higher dungeon in the new expansion.

The artifact appearance associated with Keystone Master will still be available in Battle For Azeroth. Players can earn the achievement in Legion through August 13, or players can complete a Mythic 15 BFA dungeon at level 120, once Mythic Keystone difficulty opens a few weeks after the launch of Battle For Azeroth.

This means that the only artifact appearance that will become unobtainable with Battle For Azeroth is the Mage Tower base appearance.

As always, thank you for your feedback!
Awesome! Thanks a lot
Wait we can still unlock the 3 mage tower appearances other than the base in bfa?

Yeah, you have to have the base to unlock the rest, but if you get the base you can unlock the other colors after BfA releases.

If you have the base appearance unlocked already, yes. If you do not unlock the base appearance unlocked you cannot unlock the remaining appearances as acquiring the base appearance is a prerequisite.
Great love this change!
this isn't about mage tower appearances....
Wait, we are going to be able to do M+ during the prepatch!? That's gonna be interesting lol...
Now those are good news. Very good news.
This is great news, thanks for the update!
Sweet will this be tied to unlocking the high elf allied race?
Wonderful!

Now, is there any news about how feral and guardian druids will be able to use those forms they've earned, once we lose our artifacts? We are currently unable to access those forms on the beta, unless we equip a dagger or fist weapons, which we cannot dual wield (therefore we cannot use the forms in combat).

We better. Gotta practice with all the new stuff and be ready for those mythic dungeons at 120 on launch night.
Will the achievement ever transition to an account wide unlock or still by character?
Any chance we can get the SINDRAGOSA'S FURY spell animation somehow?
Appreciate the update, less stress on that front.

Now, since you released the update to the pvp prestige system... where do the artifact appearances land on it? Like, are the numbers going to change so you actually need level 20 or something for the first one?

This is fantastic news, many of us have dead guilds and weren't able to field the people necessary to put together a good team.

As for the mage tower, man I wish I had a connection that'd allow me to complete it.

Why isn't there going to be a new +15 or any level keystone achievement for BFA?
Thought this was announcement that spec locking artifacts is no longer a thing. More and more restrictions even for cosmetic items just feels wrong.

This is a good change for sure though can’t say it isn’t. Just really surprised cosmetic items are going to be spec locked instead of class locked that’s a restriction we’ve never seen for transmog before, feels like a step backwards. 1h/shield as a holy pally and I can’t mog my prot artifact skins? Guess they’re just wasted then. Unfortunate
Is the reason to keep Mage Tower exclusive because of fundamental mechanical changes to classes (apart from them straight up saying they wouldn't be carried through)? Scaling level/ilvl is certainly possible but I'm guessing it becomes much more difficult with changes to self-sustain and burst?
