- PvP and PvE modes will no longer be divided on different servers;
- location level will be adjusted to the character;
- Zandalar (Horde) and Kul’Tiras (Alliance) continents were added;
- among allied races the Horde received Nightborne, Highmountain tauren and Zandalari trolls, and the Alliance got Void elves, Dark Iron dwarves, and Lightforged draenei.
Many other introductions are planned, some of which Blizzard developers have not yet disclosed. However, even from the information available, it is clear that the addon will be outstanding.
