Incredible Naxxramas Trailer by Hurricane

Recommended Posts

The man is back, after the massively impressive Burning Crusade T5 trailer last year, and it seems he's decided to do some timewalking of his own and head back to Vanilla itself. Specifically the very end of Vanilla and the least visited (let alone finished) raid in the history of the game - Naxxramas. We also get a very tantalizing sneak peak of his next project at the very end, which is oddly topical right now as we're about to head back to Black Temple very soon ourselves!

A damn fine display, as expected, and it seems it took him quite a while as the Burning Crusade one was released in September of 2016, as he mentions himself:

Quote

This trailer is my way of expressing the deep appreciation and respect for the old vanilla raiding back in 2006.

Production took 6 months (161 days).

This is my own personal project. It has no affiliation with any private server or Blizzard Entertainment.

And here's the making of video for his previous work, just to get an idea of how he manages these feats of strength!

This one has a pretty special significance to me personally, as it was the first raid where I got some really massive World Firsts (C'thun was just stupidly tuned and then hotfixed at a time more convenient for EU guilds, so I never really considered that such a big deal). That Kel'thuzad kill was just amazing, and since we're in the middle of a WF race right now I'm gonna use that excuse and post it right now!

Idk if it was on purpose or just an awesome typo, but that "a loot of good memories" is a WIN comment, if I ever saw one

Good job, sir Starym

Rofl, it wasn't a typo but it wasn't intended as "loot" either, was like "a looooot". Good catch!

That gave me chills. Awe-inspiring work and makes me really miss raiding with all my friends back then.

Holy poop on a stick that was amazing. Just personally I'm in a really grumpy mood today due to work stuff and this just totally made my day. I was expecting some old model low rez silly fan thing, not a full theatrical cinematic masterpiece. In addition and I'm saying this because I want people to notice, there are some amazing small details in this. Specifically the one I loved is near the end you see corrupted asrbringer dragged on the ground, one of the most iconic and sought after weapons in the game (i vendored mine years ago >_>). There are just a lot of small details that show this was a labor of love. I was blown away by this :)

If @Hurricane sees this first good lord man good work, second, I request you make one for dragon soul :D

      Reddit user leothar noticed on the Beta that you transmogrify wands into other one-hand weapon types as of the latest Beta Build 35432.
      In Shadowlands, players will be able to transmogrify each shoulder separately. Another exciting change discovered on the Beta is that you can transmogrify wands into other one-handed weapons,
      So as a Mage, you will be able to transmog wands into one-handed swords and daggers.
      As a Priest, you can transmog wants into one-handed maces, and daggers (as seen in the image below).

      Beta Build 35432 Dev Notes: August 5th Great Vault Requirement Changes: Beta Build 35432 Regalia of the Fabled Adventurers Heirloom Set in Shadowlands Hunters Can Tame Cloud Serpents and Undead Beasts in Shadowlands
    • By Stan
      Among other notable items added in Beta Build 35432, we found two that suggest Hunters will be able to tame Cloud Serpents and Undead Beasts in Shadowlands.
      How to School Your Serpent requires Exalted with the Order of the Cloud Serpent, the Mists of Pandaria faction, which can be easily farmed during Mists Timewalking if you haven't reached the required reputation standing yet and the item teaches you how to tame Cloud Serpents.
      "A lighthearted and picture-filled book on training cloud serpents as pets. A favorite bedtime book of Pandaren children." Simple Tome of Bone-Binding is also new, and we think it is tied to the Necrolord Covenant in Maldraxxus, since necromancy is their area of expertise. It teaches you how to tame Undead Beasts.
      "A tome written by members of the House of Rituals, in large letters and using simple words, to teach the House of the Chosen members how to bind undead beasts to them. There are pictures." The Hunter stable size has been increased to 205 Slots in Shadowlands, so giving Hunters two new pet families to tame is a welcome addition.

      Beta Build 35432 Dev Notes: August 5th Great Vault Requirement Changes: Beta Build 35432 Regalia of the Fabled Adventurers Heirloom Set in Shadowlands
    • By Stan
      A new patch went live recently on the Beta, so we're breaking it down today to highlight what's new and we'll start with items, namely the new Heirloom set called Regalia of the Fabled Adventurers and its set bonuses.
      Although the system has not been fully implemented yet on the Beta, Blizzard added new Heirlooms with the previously-mentioned set bonuses to the game.
      The new Heirloom set is called Regalia of the Fabled Adventurers and consists of 7 armor pieces:
      Heirloom Chestpiece Heirloom Cloak Heirloom Helm Heirloom Legs Heirloom Necklace Heirloom Ring Heirloom Shoulders Set Bonuses
      2-Piece Set Bonus: Maximizing Rests - Rested experience consumed 30% slower. 3-Piece Set Bonus: Battlefield Resourcefulness - Increases your out-of-combat regeneration in the outdoors, normal dungeons and battlegrounds. 4-Piece Set Bonus: Flash of Brilliance - Gaining a level triggers Burst of Knowledge, dealing 2,167 Holy damage to nearby enemies and granting you 40% Primary Stat for 2 min. Defeating additional enemies can extend this effect. 6-Piece Set Bonus: Maximizing Rests - Rested experience consumed an additional 30% slower. Other Heirloom items added on the Beta include the following items that have no effects/stats thus far:
      Heirloom Ring Heirloom Trinket Heirloom Trinket You can find more details about all leveling changes coming in Shadowlands in our guide.

      The Great Vault aka the new weekly chest had received a lot of criticism lately, specifically for its Mythic+ and PvP requirements. In its previous iteration, while ranks 1 and 2 seemed fine, you had to successfully complete 15 M+ runs to get the 3rd rank, compared to 10 raid bosses downed and a measly 250 Conquest Points.

      (Image courtesy of Baratheus)
      In today's beta build these numbers have been heavily modified, as the M+ ranks have become easier, while the PvP ones much harder:
      Mythic+:
      Rank 1: 1 M+ (unchanged) Rank 2:  4 M+ (1 less) Rank 3: 10 M+ (5 less) PvP:
      Rank 1: 125 Conquest (25 more) Rank 2: 350 Conquest (200 more) Rank 3: 875 Conquest (625 more) Raids:
      Unchanged And so unlocking the third choice from M+ has become much easier, while all three in PvP are harder, with the third being a lot more demanding. Also remember, these are just additional choices, you will still only receive 1 piece of loot per week.
      For more information on the new weekly chest system, check out our full preview.

      Today's beta update brings the character wipe, a workaround for the DK, DH and Allied Race creation issues, some DHs might have facial feature issues and the recently announced heirloom changes are not yet implemented.
      August 5 (source)
      The character wipe is complete, the Beta has been updated to the latest build, and testers can now resume.
      Known Issues
      On first logging in, testers will not be able to make a Death Knight, Demon Hunter, or Allied Races character. Until this is fixed, you can make a level 50 template, log in to that character, and then log out. You should have full access to create any classes or race. After doing a character copy, you should begin with the quest “A Chilling Summons” to avoid potential difficulties. Some Demon Hunter player-characters may have missing facial features. This may be fixable by going to a barber shop and changing your tattoos. Forthcoming adjustments to heirloom bonuses are not yet implemented.
