World of Warcraft will also be receiving a dedicated mobile Companion App on September 7!

Check out the video preview for the app below:

Haven’t yet decided which class you want to play in Legion? Players can now sample them all using the new Class Trials feature! From the character-creation screen, you will be able to create and play a level-100 character with a preset class specialisation. From here you can put them through their paces in a tutorial experience, and quest to acquire a powerful Artifact weapon. If you like what you see, you can apply a level-100 character boost and continue the adventure on the Broken Isles, or park them and try out another class. Each copy of Legion comes bundled with one level-100 boost, with additional boost tokens available through the Battle.net Shop.
