If you’ve been taking part in the battles over Ashran in World of Warcraft, it’s understandable that you could be a little tired of the open PvP zone. That’s why the zone is getting a bit of an overhaul in patch 6.2, starting with a mechanical change that removes Conquest Point rewards from killing faction bosses and events. Instead, players will be awarded Conquest Points through new repeatable quests requesting some dead faction bosses and some event victories. It’s not functionally all that different, but there’s an added step.
The big addition, however, is the rush to the Ashran Excavation, which will pit both factions against one another in a race to collect more Apexis Marks of Redemption. Players are charged with cutting down Arakkoa ghosts to collect the marks, turning them in to a neutral ghost and collecting a powerful artifact for hitting 50 first. Take a look at the full preview for all of the details.
