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.
Now, regardless of whether that's the only thing needed, it still seems like an improvement over the rep grinds, as renown will be a very important part of the Covenant experience and we'll probably want to get as much of it as possible anyway (and it also has catch up mechanics, unlike reps). Whether it will be slower or faster than the rep grinds remains to be seen (and will be different for different players), but so far it seems like a positive change, as it's connected to a base activity in the game instead of reputations, which you might have to grind for separately. This also might be a big issue for players that will be switching Covenants after a while, as presumably renown won't be following you from Covenant to Covenant, so this might be another sticking point with the players that have issues with Covenants and their limitations as it is.
Here's the part of the interview related to fyling, but you can check the whole thing out as well:
It seems we're not stopping at the recent +29 record, as we have another milestone crossed in Mythic+ BfA. +30 has fallen! A Chinese group consisting of a prot Warrior, holy Paladin, fire Mage, outlaw Rogue and havoc Demon Hunter have taken down Mechagon Junkyard at the highest level we've seen in all of BfA, just one away from Legion's best. Big congrats to 丶神奇的阿诺, 麒丨麟, 丶清訫, 叶落初冬 and 小软不高兴, who finished it off with almost 3 and a half minutes to spare!
And you can check out the VoD from the tank's PoV.
Blizzard is looking into lifting transmog restrictions in Shadowlands and allow players to use Legion's Artifact appearances regardless of their specialization for transmog.
Another interesting bit from the MrGM interview with Morgan Day deals with Legion Artifact appearances and transmog.
Morgan revealed that the WoW team considers giving players the option to transmog Legion Artifact appearances regardless of specialization in Shadowlands. Note that this has not been officially confirmed yet, and Day said that the Artifacts would remain within the class should they lift the restrictions, as pointed out by r/wow moderator Sunscorch.
Card The change would allow you to use the Discipline Priest's Light's Wrath for transmog on your Shadow Priest, for instance. Are you looking forward to the change?
This is not the only change related to Legion Artifacts that we'll see in the Shadowlands, as Druids will be able to customize their Bear/Cat form independently of their currently equipped Legion Artifacts.
So a lot of you probably wonder what's going to happen with Heirlooms after the leveling squish and changes in Shadowlands. Blizzard confirmed in an interview with MrGM that they would no longer provide XP bonuses!
On the Alpha, we checked out the Heirloom Tab multiple times and found out that they no longer increase experience gains. We thought this was just a bug that would get fixed in future builds, but the opposite is true.
Heirlooms will no longer provide Experience Bonuses in Shadowlands. They are replacing the XP bonuses with something that's not percentage-based, so maybe we will see other interesting effects on them that will be useful during the leveling process.
Keep in mind that leveling in Shadowlands is much faster compared to what we currently have on live 8.3 servers, so the change might not be that bad, granted that the new effects will be worth it.

Content creators seem to have access to Beta servers already, and some functions that work there are currently not enabled on the Alpha. Towelliee, for example, recorded a video showcasing the new Legendary Crafting UI, giving us an idea about how we will craft Legendary Armor in Torghast in the new expansion.
So in the Maw, there is Torghast, you enter the Tower, and there is a room called Runecarver's Cell where you craft your legendaries. The Runecarver is chained there, and you must give him mats to craft Legendary Armor.
So first, you take a Base Item that comes from Professions and select the Legendary Power you want on the item.
Next, you must select two secondary stats for your Legendary Armor.
This whole process will cost you a new currency called Carcerus; According to the flavor text, it is a raw source of power found within Torghast used to fuel the Runecarver's Chamber.
You can watch the whole process in the video below.
