Join us live on Thursday, June 14, at 11:00 a.m. PDT, 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 Beta 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 Tuesday!
Can you talk to shamans?
How does the class development team work? What does a class developer's typical day look like?

And of course, what is the developers' perspective on the state of the arcane mage, and the feedback that has been provided by players?
Are there plans to allow characters whose artifact weapon is not the same type used by their class/spec in other expansions to continue transmogging their appearances? (E.g. Ele shamans, Holy Paladins, Windwalker Monks, Feral/Guardian Druids).
When we we have a better exact idea of the unlock requirements and release timeframe of the Zandalari troll and Kul Tiran human allied races, like the preview we got for Mag'har and Dark iron?
Will classes play like they are on Beta during the BFA pre-patch, or will there be some temporary adjustments to compensate for things that might not play as well before getting to 120 and having Azerite gear etc?
A death knight can already wear full paladin armor, with light coming off their whole body. Transmog has never been about class/spec fantasy, it's about fun and player expression. Given that, why are artifact appearance mogs being so heavily restricted?

On a personal note, please get rid of the mainhand/offhand mog requirements for Doomhammer. Let me use two Doomhammers or two Fury of the Stonemothers please.
Can we get a mount that's not a recolor for the 100 exalted reps achievement?

Also, the link on news page links to the EU website, not this thread. Just a heads up.
Are artifact weapon appearances going to remain spec specific, or are they going to at the least be available for the class? (Example: Assassination dagger appearance on subtlety rogue)

Is the Allied Race system going to be a BfA system, or is there a good likelihood of it being expanded on in future expansions?

Any news on goblin/worgen model updates, or is that still up in the air?
Can we get clarification on the new community feature? In specific, what is the member limit, invite limit, and ban limit? Why are there even limits, especially a ban limit..?
Can we get one, obvious, clear cut reason why Sylvanas is not Garrosh 2.0? Everything that has been said (just wants to protect her people, keen strategist, etc) could describe Garrosh.
Is there any plans for new combinations for classes and races for the future? Pandaren druids maybe?
Why don't two-handed swords/axes/maces/polearms switch between strength and intellect in BfA? There's currently no two-handed weapons with int that Holy Paladins can use in any of the dungeons or raid/world bosses. How are we going to use the artifact skins that we grinded out in Legion?
How do you feel about enhancement shamans at this stage of beta development? Currently the community feels that it needs significant improvements both base line and in talents.
Why was the decision made to strip abilities, traits, and complexity from classes, only to slowly return it throughout Battle for Azeroth in the form of azerite traits and talents?

Can any comment on the state of shadow priests be made?
What is your plan for class buffs? Currently it seems to make things worse for raid teams and M+ groups as it gimps groups without these mandatory classes. Ghetto scribe versions for some of the buffs is insufficient to mitigate this.
What was the thought process behind Survival Hunters "Wildfire bomb"? Why did you decide to make it a frontal cone instead of area damage like current explosive trap? It's a bomb, not a claymore! Also, will they ever get to see Dual wield?
Can we get a rough timeline for specs that are still on the radar for major changes prior to prepatch?
What’s going on with artifact transmog? I.e Will Holy Paladins be able to transmog their 2h artifact over whatever the current weapon type is (like 1h/shield)? If not then will we be able to at least use prots 1h/shield artifact?
Will we be seeing raid azerite traits soon? Still haven’t seen them and they’re supposed to help fill specs out as stated in an earlier QA. Curious to see what they look like.
