      With a fair amount of game adaptations heading over to Netflix in TV show form, the most recent and significant being the Witcher, Str1der has taken it upon himself to make a trailer for what a World of Warcraft show might look like. With the Warcraft movie not having done so well and having somewhat deviated from the original lore (although, so has the game itself at this point), it would really be a nice thing to see all the ancillary content featured in novels and comics etc. brought together in TV show format.
      The trailer is pretty well put together, however the choice of the song "Human" is clearly Alliance-favoritism and wholly inappropriate, therefore we all need to boycott it!!11 (For those of you that are sensitive to the faction allegiances, well, first of all, what's wrong with you, and second, that was a joke.)
      My personal favorite is when Illidan shows up and the song goes "some people have real problems", which is perhaps one of the most accurate song to scene pairings in the history of trailers.
      So, what do you think of the trailer and the idea of a Netflix WoW show? Should it focus on present day Azeroth and follow the expansions to give us a better understanding of the characters we interact with, or would you prefer it to start from the very beginning and eventually catch up?

      The Hivemind is a new secret mount that will become available with Tides of Vengeance. Check out the model and join the hunt on Tuesday!
      The Hivemind -> The Hivemind
      "A true union of minds."

      As with every major content update, it's time for new secrets! According to the latest tweet by Muffinus, this appears to be the most elaborate puzzle ever, as the image depicts Celestalon who is responsible for the Endless Halls puzzle.
      Placeholder for tweet 1071167789354774528 Currently, we don't know how the mount works but there's an interesting spell "Joined Hivemind" related to it that suggests multiple passengers and each passenger increases its mounted speed by 10%.
      Warcraft Secrets Website
      Warcraft Secrets is a website that covers secrets in World of Warcraft and in Battle for Azeroth, the community came together to solve various puzzles ranging from Nazjatar Blood Serpent up to Baa'ls Darksign. They're your go-to site when it comes to Warcraft secrets, so definitely check them out and the WoW Secret Finding Discord if you plan to join the hunt on Tuesday. You can find a list of all Battle for Azeroth secrets here. They're also giving away Whomper, so don't forget to enter the giveaway for a chance to win the latest pet.
      The Hivemind is a new secret flying mount that will go live with Patch 8.1. Will you join the hunt?

      Hi everyone. You might want to know that although there are already many Discord servers out there related to classic wow, there is a more local one specifically for Europe, with already nearly 400 members. Feel free to join fellow european classic lovers and vanilla old-timers while waiting for summer!  (https://discord.gg/SdVt9zN)

      World of Warcraft's third expansion was released on this day 8 years ago.
      Deathwing transformed Azeroth forever as we know it. In Cataclysm, the whole world burned under the shadow of his wings and the expansion went live on December 7, 2010.
      Patch 4.1: Rise of the Zandalari
      The first major content patch of the expansion was released on April 26, 2011 and brought the reopening of Zul'Aman and Zul'Gurub. While Amani War Bear was removed from the game, players can still obtain a recolor of the mount (Amani Battle Bear) to this day.
      Patch 4.2: Rage of the Firelands
      The second Cataclysm patch went live on June 28, 2011 and included Firelands, a new raid with Ragnaros as the final boss, a new daily quest hub (Molten Front) and Dungeon Journal. Interesting loot from the Firelands includes Smoldering Egg of Millagazor that has a small chance to drop from Heroic Ragnaros, Flametalon of Alysrazor which drops from Alysrazor and Fandral's Flamescythe from Staghelm that gives Druid cats a fiery appearance.
      Patch 4.3: Hour of Twilight
      The final major content patch went live on November 29, 2011. Three new 5-player dungeons were released (Hour of Twilight, End Time, Well of Eternity). In terms of system updates, Raid Finder, Void Storage and Transmogrification were added to the game. The final raid Dragon Soul featured Deathwing as the final boss. Interesting drops include Reins of the Blazing Drake, Life-Binder's Handmaiden off Deathwing and Experiment 12-B from Ultraxion.
