Patch 8.2 is the second content patch for BFA, which is WoW‘s seventh expansion pack. It includes the ability to use your flying mounts in Kul’Tias and Zuldazar (after a lengthy achievement has been obtained) a new raid in Azshara’s Eternal Palace, a new “mega dungeon” (think Return to Karazhan in Legion) in Mechagon, updates to the War Campaign, a new pet battle dungeon, and a lot more. The patch will also contain the usual class balancing and changes that come with every WoW patch.
The patch also hopes to fix some of the persistent problems players have had with Battle For Azeroth since its release, with an overhauled Essence system for the Heart of Azeroth artifact necklace, which should introduce more decision making and fun abilities into system.
