WARNING: Issues with Covenant Switching WARNING: Issues with Covenant Switching The most controversial issues of the Shadowlands has begun creating real problems already. Many players are having huge issues when switching Covenants, as there's either bugs in the way or, much worse, actual intended consequences of the switch. We will be looking at only a few of the many reports of problems/badly designed switching systems from reddit. World of Warcraft WoW 2 comments Yesterday at 22:02 by Starym
Inky Black Shadowlands Look Amazing Too! Inky Black Shadowlands Look Amazing Too! The Shadowlands really look incredible, and the visuals really are one of the strongest aspects of the new expansion, but there's even more to them (or less, in this case)! Players have been exploring the afterlife, and after many, MANY "Bastion is really bright" memes, it seems players have taken to dimming things down, and the Inky Black Potion from the Darkmoon Faire makes the Shadowlands really true to their name!

Silverwind Larion Secret Mount Found + Guide Silverwind Larion Secret Mount Found + Guide Did you always get slightly upset when Pelagos and Kleia would mount up on those cool flying lion-looking mounts in the Bastion quests and you couldn't? Well now you can! The Silverwind Larion has been found, or rather the way to get him has, as you'll "just" need to collect 50 tiny Anima Shards in Bastion.

All Covenant-related Mounts List/Image All Covenant-related Mounts List/Image We have a very useful list/visual made by TempusSimian today, as they've taken a look at all the Covenant-related mounts you can acquire, and you don't even need to be in that specific Covenant for all of them (although you might need help from someone who is)! This isn't a definitive and final list, as TempusSimian has just researched the matter and the expansion is 2 days old, but it's very useful nonetheless! It's also a giant image so zoom in for the best results!

In terms of actually being able to ride the mounts when not in that specific Covenant, the non-Covenant specific section SHOULD be usable regardless of affiliation. Another thing to note: it's likely that after Shadowlands, all of the Covenant exclusive mounts will become available to everyone, as you won't be in your Covenant for the next expansion's content (presumably, at least). We can't be sure on that last one, but it's a safe/reasonable bet. Also, don't forget, you can swap Covenants if you're just after the mounts for your collection and mounts collected total number (so maybe one of your alts will be the Covenant traitor and go around collecting mounts)!

Bastion Quest Zone Item Can 1-shot in PvP Bastion Quest Zone Item Can 1-shot in PvP The strange interactions have started already, as a spear you can pick up on the ground during a Bastion quest seems to have 1-shot PvP potential! The quest zone in question is the In Agthia's Memory, where you re-live the Void attack on Bastion and it has Kyrian spears scattered throughout which you can pick up. Streamer r6ron picked one up, flung it at an enemy player aaaand: World of Warcraft WoW 1 comment Yesterday at 07:33 by Starym

Sylvanas Finally Explains her Motivations in the No More Lies Cinematic Sylvanas Finally Explains her Motivations in the No More Lies Cinematic Here we finally are! After the entirety of Battle for Azeroth, the burning of Teldrassil and every other horrible decision Sylvanas has made, we finally get to find out WHY. In a cutscene that plays after some endgame Maw quests, the Banshee Queen explains why she's done everything she's done, and whether her reasoning is sound or not, is up to you to decide.

If you've clicked on the article you probably want to know immediately, but we're still going to suggest you play through the full story to get the ramifications of the cinematic (if you're even playing, that is).
