World of Warcraft will finally let Horde and Alliance share mob tagging with Dragonflight

You might say to get on with it, but drawing it out is literally the point sometimes.

The once-uncrossable line separating Alliance and Horde in World of Warcraft is about to be blurred even further. With cross-faction grouping added to the game this past May and cross-faction guilds on the horizon, Blizzard’s also making one more significant change to how these two sides interact.

The studio made a surprising Twitter announcement yesterday to reveal that Horde and Alliance characters will be able to share mob tags with the new expansion. This means that if a Horde character starts attacking a mob — “tags” it — then an Alliance character can chip in and earn rewards (and vice-versa).

Blizzard said that the change will go into effect with the Dragonflight pre-patch, which is rumored to be coming on October 25th. The studio added a couple of caveats, saying that this system won’t work if a character is in war mode and that the limit of five characters tagging a mob is still in effect.
