Will Blizzard Do Anything With Newcomer Chat Advertising? A new mentor system was added in the pre-patch, allowing players to become mentors and help new players answer questions in the Newcomer Chat, but some have already started to abuse it for advertising... World of Warcraft WoW Today at 15:19

Doomguard Solos Dungeons While Both Friendly and Hostile We're back with more pre-patch weirdness, this time of the Warlock variety. It seems Doomguards are getting extremely confused by the Warlock summons and aren't really sure which side they're on anymore, which apparently makes then so crazy that they just go ahead and one-shot whatever dungeons they're in.

Incredible Mad Max WoW Machinima: The Barrens - Fury Crossroads We have a truly amazing video coming in at the very end of the week, and it might be one of the better things we've seen in quite a while! Esjastad created a WoW remake of one of the the Max Max: Fury Road chase sequences, probably the most known one, and it's just the best, from the iconic movie characters of Immortan Joe and the guitar guy, Max himself, to the vehicles... it's just a shame it isn't longer!

Mists of Pandaria Cinematic in 4K and 48 FPS We have another expansion cinematic upscaled and sped up to 48 FPS, with the frame rate increase being the main focus here, as we've already seen the simple resolution scale-up. SnazzyAI makes the Monk movements in the intro even more fluid, and that shot of the Jade Forest even more impressive! World of Warcraft WoW 1 comment Yesterday at 06:15
The Best Speed Level Addon, Azeroth Auto Pilot, Was Updated for the Shadowlands Pre-patch We've been covering DesMephisto a lot recently, as he's been pushing for faster and faster quest-based leveling from 1-50. While doing his many, MANY speed runs he has also been crafting the best possible routes for the shortest time spent getting to the new squished max level, and they have now been implemented into Azeroth Auto Pilot for both Horde and Alliance. WoD is still king in the questing speed level meta, despite several nerfs it's received back on the beta, due to all its treasures, bonus objectives and more. As many players (including a lot of us here at Icy Veins as well) have been leveling up new characters in preparation for Shadowlands (and in wait for the pre-patch event), this is the perfect time to try the addon out.

Solution for Legion Artifact Quest Spell Level Problems Many players have been having trouble with the level squish and Legion artifact weapon quests, as a lot of them require you to use an ability you may not have access to yet, depending on what level you start the quest on. This has happened to many classes and specs, with many posts about it. World of Warcraft WoW 1 comment Yesterday at 03:32

Class Trial Characters Locked on Live Realms Class Trials are currently unavailable in the game. Many players are reporting they cannot log in on their Class Trial Characters that were locked before their expiration after the Shadowlands pre-patch went live.

Most Popular Healer Classes and Specs in the Shadowlands Pre-patch on Icy Veins It's the healer's turn, as we take a look at spec and class popularity based on interest in the Icy Veins guides. The top 3 are significantly higher than the bottom, as Druids take the lead, with Discipline in second place - despite the Priest spec actually being broken at the moment, with their core ability being bugged since he pre-patch. Paladins close out the podium, with Shamans and Holy Priests still somewhat close to the top 3. But Monks are really having a bad time, across all roles it seems, as Mistweavers are much, much lower on the popularity scale than the other 5 healer specs.

Priest Atonement Healing Still Broken on Live Servers Due to scaling, Atonement healing is currently broken on retail and it heals for low amounts of health unless you are at maximum level. World of Warcraft WoW 14 comments Oct 17, 2020 at 15:45

Brutosaur Starting Bid Price on the Black Market AH is 5 Million Gold You can no longer buy Reins of the Mighty Caravan Brutosaur from the vendor for 5 million gold, and if you thought you'd be able to get it cheaper from the Black Market Auction House, we have some bad news for you.
