This week’s PTR update enables the Deaths of Chromie scenario for testing! You’ll find her looking for help in Dalaran. We’re really looking forward to hearing your feedback, so please give it a try and let us know what you think in the dedicated feedback thread.

Later this week, we’ll be starting up some more raid testing for Mythic Tomb of Sargeras. We’ll also be opening Tomb for Raid Finder testing over the weekend. We’ll have more details soon – keep an eye out if you’d like to participate.

Also of note in this build are a few more class changes, including a fairly substantial round of updates for Subtlety Rogues. Again, please give them a try on the PTR and let us know what you think.

Thanks as always, and happy testing!

      The Revendreth short was quite a dark sight to behold, both in narrative and visual tone, but there were still plenty of striking images to be had, and our old wallpaperist NostraDavid has captured a whole lot of them in 4K! We have 31 images to take a look at (including Garrosh, both screaming and non-screaming) and pick our favorites from this time around, so let's take a look at some of our picks or you can head straight to the imgur gallery for all of them. And don't forget, there's also the Bastion, Maldraxxus and Ardenweald wallpapers to choose from as well!

      We recently covered the potential/actual exploit of getting from level 50 to 60 in under 10 minutes on the beta, and Blizzard was quick to address it with today's build, by simply reinstating the equivalent level limit for the item that it had before the squish. However, there is a very simple workaround for the fix, featuring Party Sync. The original method still applies, and you'll have to get a whole lot of Legion mission table XP items using not quite legit means (you can check out the whole process here), but the workaround for the fix is simplicity itself, as Shiekrunner demonstrates in 30 seconds:
      This will almost certainly also be fixed soon, but we're just pointing it out in case it does slip by unnoticed, although even if it did it seems awfully brave for anyone to attempt this, as it's very likely it would result in some level of suspension.

      Torghast is going away for a while, as Blizzard have announced they're working on some issues with it, and it will not be available for a few days. This is in reference to the actual Torghast Tower of the Damned in-game, and not the somewhat confusingly named Torghast max level beta server, which is still up and running.
      Torghast (source)
      So that we can address some issues with Torghast, Tower of the Damned, access to this feature has been disabled for a few days in the Shadowlands Beta.
      Torghast the test realm is available.
      We’ll post further updates when we’re ready to resume testing in the tower.
      Thank you!

      It's that time of the new animated short release day, as the memes have accumulated since Afterlives: Revendreth released. Today is a particularly fruitful day, as we have not only a new short for image sources, but also the return of Garrosh, who's a pretty good meme topic on his own. So, let's get into it, as r/wow is brimming with potential.
      We start off on the shores of Battle for Azeroth, as FiliusLuporum had a terrifying thought about Sire Denathrius. "I had a nightmare today":

      Source.
      Then we move on to a reality-based one, and this one we can all feel is true as etoro-lvl60-mage says what we're all thinking:

      Source.
      This particular format was used a lot and we'll probably be seeing more of it, as this next one starts us off on the Activision Blizzard side of today's memes, with Thirteenera using the format for some long-lasting issues:

      Source.
      And then it's time to reveal the true nature of Sire Denathrius, as lobbl noticed some possible similarities between the two:

      Source.
      But now it's on to what you're really here for, what everyone has been waiting for in the animated short, it's Garrosh memes! This first one isn't technically about Garrosh specifically, but he's featured in it, with matticus7 throwing in some solid irony:

      Source.
      And now it's on to Garrosh proper, as the former Warchief had a pretty one-note appearance, which cammackattack decided to merge with the Meet the Parents meme:

      Source.
      Then we're on to the definitely best line of the entire animated short, which Nyarlathotep21 incorporated into another, similar franchise:

      Source.
      We're still sticking with Garrosh, but this time papanak94 went for the meta look at actual players' relationship with his character:

      Source.
      The penultimate one we're taking a look at comes from a different genre of memes - that's right, Gublash made a Covenant swap meme crossover:

      Source.
      And to finish things off we're going off-road with one that has nothing to do with the Revendreth short, but SaltyLocation9556 definitely encapsulated literally every player's thoughts after the Bastion short:

      Source.
