Amazingly Beautiful AtalDazar Built in Minecraft Amazingly Beautiful Atal'Dazar Built in Minecraft It's time for another crazy fan creation, this time of the Minecraft variety. Redditor Shieldomirs spent about a month making this incredible recreation of the Zudazar dungeon, creating the details, organic parts and houses by hand, and using some building commands for the landscape. It looks just too good to be true, perhaps even better than the WoW version, but unfortunately isn't currently available to download as a map. You'll have to zoom in to see the true detail put into it, so let's get to it! World of Warcraft WoW 3 comments Yesterday at 02:42 by Starym
Update To the Changes Coming to S21 Seasonal Power Update To the Changes Coming to S21 Seasonal Power We have an update for the changes coming to the controversial Season 21 theme/power, which might dampen hopes for some major modifications to the mechanical effects themselves. PezRadar clarified that the changes will be focused on accessibility issues and the already mentioned set dungeon interference. Presumably this mostly means the visual queues for the powers, which many players have been reporting problems with, from the effects just being annoying and making it hard to see enemy affixes, to actual bugs making players' screens go completely grey and obscure all enemies and terrain.

It's still somewhat unclear if these are the only changes being tested, as the community is pretty unhappy with the theme in general.

Naked Raid Downs Onyxia in WoW Classic Naked Raid Downs Onyxia in WoW Classic Well, this was the inevitable final outcome of all the special raid compositions, from all druid to all paladin, shaman etc, the endgame has always been all naked it seems. We have 40 absolute madlads (and madladies) taking on Onyxia with nothing but their pride equipped (and one warlock who put on a trinket accidentally mid fight through an accidental key-bind click, so I guess the run is null and void!!11), so that's no weapons, gear, trinkets, nothing.

Necrolord Abomination Factory Mount Not Usable Outside Shadowlands Necrolord Abomination Factory "Mount" Not Usable Outside Shadowlands Some bad news on our sure to be favorite mode of transport coming with the Necrolord Covenant, as Blizzard have clarified that we'll only be able to use the hideous wonderful services of our crafted friend from the Abomination Factory within the Shadowlands. It's not going to be an actual mount we can add to our collection after all, but a special ability instead.

This is not about Covenant's specific mount reward, as that one is, in fact, a real mount.

Shadowlands Flying Aka Pathfinder Wont Require Reputations, but Covenant Renown Shadowlands Flying Aka Pathfinder Won't Require Reputations, but Covenant Renown Some probably good news for flying enthusiasts! No, we're not getting flying right off the bat in Shadowlands, it's not THAT good news. But, the pathfinder achievement(s) in Shadowlands will be getting a change, as we found out in HazelNuttyGames' interview with John Hight. The pathfinder achievement(s) will be based off of renown with your Covenant of choice, instead of requiring specific reputations, and from what Hight said in the interview, it may be the only thing required. That part seems unlikely, but it could be interpreted that way, as he specifically said that developing your renown will unlock flying eventually. No direct comments on when flying might happen, but it won't be in the first patch. World of Warcraft WoW 3 comments Jul 10, 2020 at 01:29 by Starym
