Welcome to WoWWiki!

Are you wanting to update articles or upload images for the newly announced expansion, World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth?

Here are a few tips to help make things easier for you and everyone else.


When in doubt, please read WoWWiki:Lore policy and the general WoWWiki:Editing policy before continuing.

By now there are many many articles and sections on WoWWiki containing lore, Warcraft Universe bits, and other material that needs to stay intact. Is almost never a need to actually delete any text, in part or whole. If unsure, please feel free to contact an admin or other expert.

Article tips

  • Please do not move or completely change articles. Instead add a Battle for Azeroth section (== In Battle for Azeroth ==) with the information of what will change; also use {{Battle-section}}.
  • For major new articles about Battle for Azeroth subjects, please place {{Battle for Azeroth}} at the top.
    • Major articles include: locations, major characters, new professions (none announced so far), new races (none so far), new creatures, new factions, and new features (Order Halls, etc.).
    • This template should not be used on: minor NPCs, mobs, items, spells/abilities, or talents. You can use {{Stub/Battle}} for those.
  • Information contained in the expansion, particularly lore information, should be addressed in the present tense.
  • If adding to or creating a == Patch changes == section of an article (please do so), use {{Patch 8.0.1|note=Insert note here (like "Added").}} or {{Patch 8.0.3|note=Insert note here (like "Added").}} (Patch 8.0.1 is the first Alpha and Beta version and Patch 8.0.3 likely is the first systems pre-patch version).

Uploading images

Templates to use

  • {{Stub/Battle}} - Should only be placed on new or announced articles involving the Battle for Azeroth that are unfinished.
