Redditor Zubberikan made an interesting discovery! The hidden appearance for Frost Death Knights Runes of the DarkeningRunes of the Darkening now drops in Icecrown Citadel. 

We do not know if this is intended, a bug or an undocumented change of Patch 7.1.5. The appearance does not seem to drop from a specific boss. The drop we see in the picture below (Credits go to Zubberikan) dropped from Deathbringer Saurfang. Redditor InvidiaSuperbia confirmed the drop from The Lich King (25 Heroic).

For Kerexgg Deathbringer Saurfang also dropped the appearance.DwbCqzz.jpg

Hopefully they give everyone else the same treatment, for those who for some dumb reason have to get their hidden appearances from world bosses.

Any idea if there is a level requirement tied to this? Can my 100 DK get it?

I think there is, some lvls of artifact knowledge required, If they didn't removed them yet, wich i doubt.

I'd be very surprised if they had removed the AK req, especially since it is so easy to get now.

I'm a big fan of this tbh. It means it's dropping somewhere that actually means something to the spec, not "go do withered j'im, crash the zone for a bit and hope you get it"

It should be somewhat lore driven I think.  I personally thought the Blood DK one coming from some Suramar chest was... ridiculous at best.

Hah "crash the zone for a bit"

Oddly enough I've never been in a situation where the entire zone crashed from doing Withered J'im. I guess I never ended up on one of -those- servers while joining a group heh.

I agree.  I am a big fan of ICC.  I like the idea of getting people in there if they have never been.  The fact that it is tied to lore is a very nice added bonus.

And there's always the chance to get Invincible's ReinsInvincible's Reins and many cool pets introduced with Raiding with Leashes IV: Wrath of the Lick KingRaiding with Leashes IV: Wrath of the Lick King. You can also work toward getting ShadowmourneShadowmourne. So many reasons why to return to ICC with your Death Knight.

Count yourself lucky! I tried levelling with my girlfriend while he was up and the zone just kind of died every time they engaged him. It was horrible :( Not the best first experience of Legion for her!

I approve this. You see guys, getting an artifact appearance from an irrelevant content a world boss that spawns around 5 or 8 weeks makes no sense. 

 

Yes, I claimed mine after I killed The Soultakers who are 3 seperate bosses in a room by just looting after killing it. But after several weeks, I saw some people were dropping this appearance from Naxxramas or Upper ICC. To be honest, that pleases me. This is something meaningful and relevant. After all, FDKs carrying two swords derivated from shards of Frostmourne the sword who made Arthas a Lich King, all those savagery at Northrend and it must be an obligation to making it a corelation with WOTLK content by this. 

 

I don't know any other hidden appearances from world bosses and their fixation of able to get those from other old contents, but we deserved it. 

 

About BLOOD hidden appearance, it must be related with Teron Gorefiend at BT or Gorefiend at HFC. That is all I can say here.

      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?

      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.
