...And apparently there's a shizbucket of stuff to farm, like a pet, weapons, mog gear...
Thankfully we've got a month and a half to do it...
Actually, you won't have a month and a half to farm all the stuff, that's the crazy part (because even I think that's a lot of stuff to farm, especially for someone who has a lot of alts too). @_@ While I think the patch is gonna drop on the 19th (or at least in July), the Invasions themselves (which are the source of the pet, weapon and gear) won't begin until August.
According to the post today:
From here: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/blog/201756 ... -7-13-2016Around the second or third week of August (no later than August 17 globally), after you’ve had time to play around with the patch and get a feel for the changes, some angry invaders are going to start dropping out of the skies over Azeroth.
So you'll only be getting around 2-3 weeks to farm for the Invasion rewards, since they've announced it's coming in August and not specifically at launch of pre-patch.
Which makes sense, because that same time-frame was also slated for when the 'Demon Hunter Early Access' would begin according to their previous post. Additionally because some of the rewards in the invasions include Warglaives which are the weapon for Demon Hunters.
So when the invasions arrive, Demon Hunters will arrive with them. And then all hell breaks loose as people decide between leveling a Demon Hunter, farming for their main, and farming for their alts cause omg-transmog.
It's going to be a busy summer @_@
