Not the biggest fan of PvP? These new mounts on the Legion Alpha might just change your mind!

 

When Legion arrives, there are going to be some serious changes to the PvP system. One of the changes is the introduction of the Prestige system, in which players will "level up" their PvP level, gaining skills and abilities as they go. When they reach the max level, they have the choice of either continuing as a max-level PvP character, enjoying the abilities available, or they can "prestige" themselves. This will allow them to return to level 1 and continue the PvP-levelling grind, while earning certain rewards only available from the Prestige system.

 

One of the assumed rewards from going through the system are mounts, some of which have already been found in the Alpha files. Currently, two mounts have been named as rewards: inv_alliancepvpmount.jpgPrestigious War Steed and ability_mount_hordepvpmount.jpgPrestigious War Wolf, both of which are very cool recolours of the current PvP mounts.

While both have these are confirmed as rewards, there are two further reskins that have been found in the game files. They are both based on current PvP mounts, as well as having a similar colour scheme to the confirmed mounts.

      Method are the first guild in the world to earn the Hall of Fame: G'huun (Horde) achievement. Blizzard clarified how it works and who will be able to use the Famed Slayer title.
      Hall of Fame Achievements
      Battle for Azeroth introduced new raid achievements to the game and if you're among the first 100 guilds worldwide to defeat the final raid boss of a raid tier on Mythic difficulty, you will be granted a title. In this case, it revolves around G'huun and the Famed Slayer of G'huun title.
      Hall of Fame: G'huun (Alliance) Hall of Fame: G'huun (Horde) After 100 guilds of each faction earn the achievement, cross-realm Mythic Uldir will become available.
      Famed Slayer Title Clarifications
      In order to use the title, you need to be in a guild that has earned the Hall of Fame achievement. On top of that, the Cutting Edge: G'huun achievement is also required.
      If you're wondering what happens if you leave a guild that has earned this achievement, chances are you probably won't be able to use the title, since you'll no longer meet the requirements. This makes perfect sense and prevents guilds from selling the title. Some exceptions could apply and the title may not be removed if you actually were in the Mythic group of 20 players that has earned the Hall of Fame achievement for a specific guild (needs confirmation).

      The wipe count for all of Uldir, including the 285 on G'huun!
      And here's the World First G'huun kill video try from the stream:

      Here's the kill clip:

      And it's Method with the World First! Re-clearing took a while and they took some time to do a Heroic as well, but as soon as they returned to G'huun they were on their way to the kill, taking only a couple of hours on the boss to down it, showing just how important that extra loot and Vantus runes are. We'll also be adding a clip and the full kill from the stream asap, so stay tuned for that!

      It seems Limit's decision to extend the lockout really did cost them, but they were consistently around 1% prior to their reset, so you can't really blame them for their decision:


      Method's second try after the re-clear was their best ever, 3.3% in fact, so it was inevitable that they'd get it fast. G'huun marks Method's 10th ever endboss World First, making them the No.1 guild in history, with Nihilum in second with 8 and Paragon in third with 7. Technically you could decide to count Nihilum and Ensidia's kills together, putting them at 11, but they decided to rename instead of merge into a new Nihilum, so you shouldn't.
      Gingi did have an interesting point as well, that Method's streaming may have actually turned out to be an advantage, as Limit could have made their extend decision partially based on seeing how close Method were to a kill because of the stream.
      In any case, huge congratulations on this amazing achievement, as Method prove they're the best once again. This race has also shown that Limit is back in a major way and the next raid(s) will be incredibly exciting!
      Method down G'huun only a few tries after the reset, gets their 10th endboss World Fist!

      As you'd expect, Method's kill got a LOT of attention, with over 180,000 people watching through all their streams on Twitch, and they also got many congratulations from all over the place, including WoW devs and the official account itself:
      Then there's Game Director Ion Hazzikostas' two congrats and raid race related tweets:
      And here's that Hall of Fame page, for some (bad) reason segmented into Horde and Alliance:

      Exorsus also joined in the congratulations:

      The race is getting insanely tense, as Method have re-cleared and we found out Limit have been having multiple sub 1% tries and their decision to extend the lockout and only progress on G'huun without getting the extra loot may have cost them. However, Method are only getting under 2% after their re-clear so it's still anybody's race as Limit may also be progressing again after sleeping. Limit's attempts:


      It's the best time to follow the livestream as we're almost sure to see a World First kill any time now, and all Method streams together have over 180,000 viewers at the moment!
