wow Warcraft Movie: Magic Featurette, Interviews, Bonds of Brotherhood on Sale, Premiere Recap

1 post in this topic


In this article, we are taking a first look at the premiere event that took place on June 6. Moreover, the prequel graphic novel Bonds of Brotherhood is now available. There is also an amazing feature video on the magic of Warcraft. Lastly, we will be covering some interviews.

Movieclips Coming Soon has uploaded a featurette called "Weaponized Magic of Warcraft". Its focus is, of course, the magic of the movie and the two mages Medivh and Khadgar, as well as Gul'dan the warlock. Undeniably, along with the orcs, magic is one of the most impressive features of the movie!

Let's continue with the interviews: Duncan Jones had three of them. The first one was with Brent Coble from YouTube Space LA, where Duncan talked a lot about filmmaking in general and Warcraft in specific.

Second, Dennis Tzeng and Wendy Lee from Collider sat down for an in depth interview with director Duncan Jones on all things World of Warcraft and its 'Warcraft' adaptation for the big screen!

Duncan also had a chat with The director of Warcraft talked about the CGI, hints in the movie and future plans. There is also a gallery with 77 related images. You can read the interview here.

The cast of Warcraft appeared on WIRED. Travis Fimmel, Paula Patton, Rob Kazinsky and Toby Kebbell answered the most googled questions about the movie, the game and themselves. Rob Kazinsky proved as knowledgeable and passionate about the game as ever!

The prequel graphic novel Bonds of Brotherhood was released yesterday. Even though they didn't get a dedicated blue post, two other novels were released yesterday: the Official Movie Novelization and Warcraft: Behind the Dark Portal. Bonds of Brotherhood even has a special motion trailer.

      The method revolves around reselling shirts for profit. It doesn't require high initial investment.
      Broxel Goldgrasp sells a of shirts for just 25g/pc. The best thing is many aren't even aware of that vendor and players are buying them for ridiculous prices, because of the Fashionista: Shirt achievement. They visually represent World of Warcraft races.
      The vendor is located in Icecrown (Argent Tournament Grounds). If you're still farming ICC for Invincible's Reins or Ulduar for Mimiron's Head make sure to pay him a visit.
      He sells the following doublets:
      Orgrimmar Doublet Undercity Doublet Thunder Bluff Doublet Sen'jin Doublet Silvermoon Doublet Alliance
      Stormwind Doublet Ironforge Doublet Exodar Doublet Darnassus Doublet Gnomeregan Doublet Thomas Yance is a traveling salesman. He doesn't sell shirts only. His arsenal includes boots, pants or robes. You can experiment with selling them as well, especially on RP realms I assume they will be very valuable. The vendor can be found in Old Hillsbrad Foothills (Caverns of Time).
      Shirts he's selling:
      Recruit's Shirt Squire's Shirt Neophyte's Shirt Apprentice's Shirt Acolyte's Shirt Even though the shirts don't look very appealing, they still count toward the achievement and should make you some gold for a few copper investment.
      If you're absolutely lazy, I've got a surprise for you. There are shirt vendors in Dalaran too. Except you'll see a lot of those shirts on the Auction House, but that's the price you ultimately have to pay for your laziness.
      Angelique Butler (36, 37) is selling:
      Antiseptic-Soaked Dressing Wound Dressing Salan Sunthread (37, 55) is selling the following apparel:
      Ebon Filigreed Doublet Cerulean Filigreed Doublet Golden Filigreed Doublet Amber Filigreed Doublet Scarlet Filigreed Doublet Ebon Filigreed Shirt Cerulean Filigreed Shirt Amber Filigreed Shirt Scarlet Filigreed Shirt Golden Filigreed Shirt Blue Martial Shirt Green Martial Shirt Yellow Martial Shirt Purple Martial Shirt Red Martial Shirt Embroidered Shirt Is somewhat pricey. Costs 1,000 Gold. Tips
      Buy multiple shirts, but NEVER put all your stock in the Auction House at once. We want players to think the shirt is rare and that's why it has such a price tag. I'd put a single shirt of each on the AH per character. Up to two chars max. This includes undercutting it on your alt by a copper to make the illusion of rarity perfect. Shirts usually sell overnight without any issues.

      US realms are affected by yet another wave of gem dupe.
      Do you see a Level 1 character advertising in Trade, selling dozens of cheap gems? If the answer is yes, your realm is affected.
      These items are currently duped like crazy
      Saber's Eye of Agility Saber's Eye of Intellect Saber's Eye of Strength What I advise you is to:
      Stay away from these gems unless you need them for raiding. In this case, buying them from the Auction House makes them clean as opposed to direct trade with the duper, which is a bannable offense and such items can get removed from your inventory. Don't buy these items if they show up in your TSM Sniper. Prices were slowly recovering from the initial dupe back in September and here we go again. I feel really sorry for people who dumped lots of gold into 800/800 Jewelcrafting. The price of an uncut Saber's Eye is three times higher than its cut counterpart.
      EU Realms
      After having viewed prices of highly-populated EU realms, like Aerie Park, there aren't any spikes in supply and/or price drops. Many if not all EU realms remain unaffected.
      To check prices on your server, use The Undermine Journal. My realm is listing the cheapest for 2.8K. Did you see a price drop on your realm? Report back with results!

      Senior Game Designer Jeremy Feasel tweeted that there are more hidden items that the community hasn't discovered yet in Legion's initial Patch 7.0.
      Muffinus has been teasing us over at Twitter that there are more hidden items that are yet to be discovered aside from Reins of the Long-Forgotten Hippogryph, Kosumoth the Hungering or Hidden Artifact appearances.
      It could be something related to Shoe Shine Kit as there is a chest that periodically spawns, but can't be opened in Dalaran's Photonic Playground (44, 47) next to Sheddle Glossgleam's shoeshine seat. The chest spawns facing the wall and can't be opened.

      What we know so far (based on various Wowhead comments and observations):
      The chest spawns at early Sundays - 12 AM (PST) / 3 AM (EST) realm time - and despawns after two hours. During these two hours Sheddle Glossgleam goes drinking in Dalaran's Legerdemain Lounge. A coffee presser and two coffee grinders can be used in the Lounge at all times. I tried to click them in every possible sequence when he was drinking coffee like crazy,  but nothing happened. There's also an empty flower pot on the bar. The npc doesn't sell any other items apart from his usual inventory. There are no chat references that could give us any hint. Talking to other NPCs at the Lounge does nothing. His brother Shandy Glossgleam doesn't have any chat lines and is upstairs out on the balcony. Pick Pocket or Pick Lock don't work as the target is Friendly. Spectral Sight doesn't work. If you get the Shiny Shoes buff, the chest can't be opened and no interaction options become available. A similar chest to Sheddle's is near the art dealer, but you can't click it. Shoe Shine Kit Tracking Quest & 7.0 Dalaran - Shoe Shiner Disappear could be somehow tied to the whole event. Let's unravel the mystery!
