Void-Blade Zedaat

"<Temp Text>Viceroy Nezhar's most trusted lieutenant, Void-Blade Zedaat, has been charged with keeping the Legion and all others away from the Seat of the Triumvirate until his work can be completed."

Matron Folnuna

Ovetigo

Sotanathor

Pit Lord Vilemus

lol those boss names, its cool to see that argus will have its own world bosses, to blizzes credit they've pushed out quite a few world bosses this expac, however, the naming is amusing to me. It almost seems like they smashed their face on the keyboard and then added vowels to whatever they got.

imma try, next world boss is awofenk- destroyer of worlds

Names is an interesting topic when it comes to games and mythology. Blizzard borrows a lot of naming conventions from mythology and also develop their own.

Already existing naming conventions:

-riel -iel and - rael -ael are used usually for divine beings or angels (Also corrupted ones), in Blizzard games (Andariel and Urzael for example in Diablo) but are not exclusive (Duriel is not a divine being for example)

-chro- is related to time, and Blizzard makes no exception. A lot of the Infinite Dragonflight in WoW have this naming convention (And not exclusively, as we all know our favorite Chromie.

 

Blizzard also develops their own naming conventions:

-Strasz and Strasza are THE "ahhh yes, we know that!" conventions. If you see a humanoid NPC with the word "strasza" in it, you are 100% certain that in fact, the humanoid form is a fake.

 

A few other examples:

Names that start with V- and are combo'd with a demon race, usually have vampiric traits.

-trax and -tras are always related to demons or races with demonic affinity (Such as satyrs)

Dragonflights and Elementals also have their own naming conventions.

 

 

There's probably 5 dozen more but in order to keep this already large post from getting even larger, I won't name them. For most of the bosses in this list you can make a strong guess as to what race they are or affinity they have without reading the titles (pit lord for example) although you'd make a rough prediction (Demonic) instead of accurate (Pit Lord):

 

Aedis - sounds magical, I'd personally guess it to be a mage, likely blood elf or nightborne. I would have been wrong on this one.

Zedaat - sounds imp-ish or fel-lord-ish. The title "Void-blade" does seem that I might be correct on that one.

Folnuna - sounds celestial (nuna, luna) - possibly druidic or priestly.

Alluradel - sounds very Night-elf flavored, again druidic or priestly.

Percontatum - makes me think the Consortium are back, although I doubt this is the case seeing as it's Argus and everything.

Ovetigo - no clue other than that it resembles vertigo, which again is hard to associate with a race unless talking Arakkoa. Perhaps something related to the titans.

Sotanathor - the latter part sounds very much like a human name. But since it's Argus, this seems extremely unlikely.

Vilemus - This is the easiest one even without the title. I wouldn't have guessed a Pit Lord myself however. I'd have guessed it to be a Nathrezim like Varimathras; Regardless, definitely a demon under the Burning Legion.

 

So even though the predictions seem quite reasonable (To me at least) I'm sure I'm absolutely wrong on about half of them. But I only allowed myself to guess on the names and not the setting (Argus, Burning legion), which made it a bit harder. I have not seen any of the models (If they're available already) to make the guesswork more fair.

 

 

All in all though, there's so many names in WoW right now, I doubt they had any creativity left for names 8 years ago ;)

Aedis is a Vrykul, Zedaat is an Ethereal, Kena seems to be the sister of the fat Broken Shore imp lady (same model as Ana-Mouz), Alluradel is a succubus, Percontatum is a tormentor (VoTW 2nd boss), Ovetigo (Durumu).

I never expected Zedaat to be a Consortium dude, but I am surprised to see one on Argus! I was pretty much mistaken on all accounts it seems, with Sotanathor not linked to a model yet.

 

I wonder what the hell the Consortium is doing on Argus. *Even though we don't really know what they were up to in Outland either* one of the most mysterious races in the game right now for sure.

      Yesterday, we previewed Great Vault, the new weekly chest of Shadowlands, but many players were confused about how the rewards from Mythic Dungeons will be calculated, so here's are some clarifications.
      To unlock more loot choices in the Great Vault, you must complete the following objectives related to Mythic Dungeons:
      Slot #1: Complete 1 Mythic Dungeon Slot #2: Complete 5 Mythic Dungeons Slot #3: Complete 15 Mythic Dungeons If you complete 15 Mythic Dungeons in a week, you will be able to choose from up to 3 items.
      Your reward is based on the lowest level of your top 1 (Slot #1), 5 (Slot #2), and 15 (Slot #3) runs. Redditor zawyer90 posted an image and explained how the system works, so helping your friend with a Mythic +5 run will not affect your weekly item choices.

      We have a bunch of retail and Classic hotfixes today, leaning heavily on the Classic side, with the Ectoplasmic Distiller fix and epic Draconic pages.
      July 31 (source)
      tems and Rewards
      Corrupted Items Reverted the recent change made on the interaction between Fist of Justice and Ineffable Truth for Holy and Protection Paladins. WoW Classic
      The Ectoplasmic Distiller quest item no longer generates threat. Developers’ note: Ordinarily we err on the side of authenticity when it comes to clever use of mechanics in Classic, even if we believe the original development team would have made a change given the same information we now have. The Ectoplasmic Distiller presents a rare exception mainly due to its severity: this new discovery of an unintended mechanic would completely trivialize most threat gameplay in raids for the remainder of Classic if left unchecked, including upcoming bosses in Ahn’Qiraj and Naxxramas. The pages for the quest “Draconic for Dummies” are now Epic quality. Developers’ note: We’re changing the item quality on "Draconic for Dummies" quest pages to Epic (purple) so that they'll be easier to distribute to the correct person in raids using Group Loot or Master Looter.

      Male Night Elves have gained a new Blindfold customization option category in the latest Shadowlands Beta build.
      Blindfolds will no longer be exclusive to select Face options in Shadowlands, as Male Night Elves received Blindfolds as a separate customization option. Currently, there is only one single Blindfold available for the race, as displayed below.

      Don't forget to check out the new Night Elf Male and Night Elf Female customization options that are coming in Shadowlands!

    • By Stan
      The weekly chest in Shadowlands will no longer be limited to just Mythic dungeons, allowing you to unlock gear from PvP and raiding. The Great Vault offers up to 9 choices that you unlock by completing various objectives.
      Freedom of Choice
      The weekly chest has been upgraded in Shadowlands to give players more choice. Instead of receiving one preset item, you will be able to select a single reward from a pool of up to nine items, depending on the activities you complete each week.
      Here's the work in progress UI of the Great Vault, courtesy of Baratheus.

      As you can see above, the weekly chest is no longer limited to just Mythic Dungeons and includes raids and PvP.
      Great Vault Objectives
      To unlock more choices/slots, you must complete the following objectives:
       Raids
      Slot #1: Defeat 3 Raid Bosses, Slot #2: Defeat 7 Raid Bosses Slot #3: Defeat 10 Raid Bosses Mythic Dungeons
      Slot #4: Complete 1 Mythic Dungeon Slot #5: Complete 5 Mythic Dungeons Slot #6: Complete 15 Mythic Dungeons PvP
      Slot #7: Earn 100 Conquest Points Slot #8: Earn 150 Conquest Points Slot #9: Earn 250 Conquest Points Note that you can still pick only ONE REWARD from the Great Vault every week. Completing the objectives unlocks more choices.
      Rewards Scaling
      Based on the datamined global strings from Beta Build 35360, you will be able to increase the item level of your weekly rewards by:
      Completing higher level Mythic dungeons; The item level will be based on the lowest level of your top run. WEEKLY_REWARDS_COMPLETE_MYTHIC_SHORT - Complete higher level Mythic dungeons to increase this reward's Item Level. WEEKLY_REWARDS_COMPLETE_MYTHIC - Complete Mythic Level %1$d dungeons. The reward is based on the lowest level of your top %2$d runs. Defeating raid bosses on higher difficulties; The item level of rewards is based on raid difficulty. WEEKLY_REWARDS_COMPLETE_RAID - Complete this activity on %s difficulty. Earning a higher bracket win that week. Item level will be based on your highest bracket win that week. CONQUEST_PVP_WEEK_ADDITIONAL_CHEST - Earn an additional %s Conquest this week to unlock a Great Vault reward (item level %s). RATED_PVP_WEEKLY_VAULT_TOOLTIP - %s/%s rewards unlocked this week.\n\nThe item level of your Great Vault reward is %s, based on your highest bracket win this week (%s). Community Feedback & Discussions
      The community is already discussing the new weekly chest on Reddit and some Redditors consider 15 Mythic dungeons per week too much. I, for one, am really excited to see more items to choose from in my weekly chest! We're still in Beta so the objectives are likely to change.
