Still only 2 guilds beat the Avatar in the entire world even after the previous nerf. And he's not even the last boss. Blizz, why are you waiting so long to introduce nerfs.

at the end of the day its a challenge, i am sure blizz is aware of the difficulty and will nerf as and when they feel they need to. the game would be so boring if we all just one hit the bosses.

You guys really see this as black and white. It's gotta be doable only by the top 0.01% (That's the representation right now) because otherwise everyone would "one hit" the bosses.

 

There's a gray area, you know?

You have to remember how nerfs impact the world first race, though. By introducing too much of a nerf mid-race, you can very quickly ruin it. If, for example, Method spend a week wiping on Avatar, then it gets a small nerf and they kill it, fine. If you then nerf it further straight after, a guild might then kill Avatar after only 1 day of wiping. This then means that guild and Method are both on KJ, despite a hugely different length of progression on the previous boss. That difference has nothing to do with skill, but instead to do with Blizzard's interference.

      This week's realm connections have been detailed and will go into effect during a special and very extended maintenance period, as we'll see 9 low pop realms get joined with 16 others. Check out the details below.
      Realm Connections (source)
      During a special maintenance period (currently planned for 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. PDT (10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. EDT) on Thursday, August 13), the following realm connections will be made:
      The Frostwolf and Vashj realms will join Drak’Tharon, Firetree, Malorne, Rivendare, Spirestone, and Stormscale . The Blackrock realm will join the Azjol-Nerub and Khaz Modan realms. The Garona realm will join the Icecrown and Malygos realms. The Bloodscalp, Boulderfist, Maiev, and Stonemaul realms will join the Quel’dorei and Sen’jin realms. Garrosh will join Aegwynn, Bonechewer, Daggerspine, and Hakkar. We are planning more realm connections for low-population realms, and we will post further notifications like this one in the coming weeks.
      Thank you!

      The Corruption Effects Vendor resets in about 19 hours as of writing this post, bringing with it a new batch of Preserved Contaminants that can be purchased for Echoes of Ny'alotha. The upcoming rotation includes Rank 3 Twisted Appendage and Expedient.
      Did You Know?
      The Corruption system will be removed in the Shadowlands pre-patch. Blizzard pushed a hotfix to live servers that acts as a cap for Corruption.

      When will MOTHER reset in my region? Check out the countdown here!
      Ineffable Truth (Rank 1 // 12 Corruption) for 3,300 Echoes of Ny'alotha Your Spells and Abilities have a chance to show you the Ineffable Truth, increasing the rate your cooldowns recover by 30% for 10 seconds.

      Sinrunner Reins is a new and probably secret mount that you can obtain in Shadowlands.
      We currently do not know what happened to good Old Blanchy after it died back in Westfall, but the mount has a Venthyr hue to it, so we speculate that its soul ended up in Revendreth for some reason.
      Sinrunner Reins teaches you Sinrunner Blanchy, so we know for sure it is the same horse we previously encoutered, but what sins did Blanchy commit remains to be seen.
      Other datamined spells and items tied to the mount and the NPC that you need to interact with to get it are:
      Blanket for Blanchy (DNT) requires Comfortable Saddle Blanket "A soft and comfortable blanket for regulating body temperature." Blanchy Horseshoes (DNT) > Requires 4 Sturdy Horseshoes "Protective footwear for horse-like creatures." Groomed Blanchy (DNT) > Requires Grooming Brush "A circular motion with the stiff bristled brush removes and soothes itches." Watered Blanchy (DNT) > Requires Bucket of Clean Water "Guaranteed to quench the greatest thirst." Apples for Blanchy (DNT) indicates that you will need three Dredhollow Apple to create Sinrunner Reins, which seems to be the final step in getting the mount.
      Based on the number of items you must acquire, we think the mount will be tied to some secret, where you must brush the horse, provide it with a blanket, clean water, and so on.
      Here's how the mount looks like in the game.

      Some rumors were circulating about the removal of Herald of the Titans in Shadowlands after the level squish. Luckily, we're able to confirm the achievement is there, but the requirements were squished down too.
      If you want to get the Herald of Titans achievement in Shadowlands before the squish on live servers, you must be at level 80 and have nobody in the raid wear items higher than item level 100. With the Shadowlands level squish, you will need to defeat Algalon at level 30 wearing items no higher than item level 35.
      Herald of the Titans in Visions of N'Zoth Herald of the Titans in the Shadowlands Pre-Patch Herald of the Titans - Defeat Algalon the Observer at level 80 without anyone in the raid wearing items higher than Item Level 100. Herald of the Titans - Defeat Algalon the Observer at level 30 without anyone in the raid wearing items higher than Item Level 35.

      Niya, one of the Soulbinds available to members of the Night Fae Covenant, comes with an interesting Soulbind trait that mimics the Shadowmeld Night Elf racial.
      If you decide to join the Night Fae Covenant, you will gain access to the Soulshape Signature Ability, which increases your Movement Speed by 50% and teleports you 15 yards forward on a short cooldown.
      Niya, one of the Night Fae Soulbinds, comes with the Sylvari Mantle that conceals you when Soulshape ends until you move, so it acts pretty much like the Shadowmeld, the Night Elf racial.
      Other Soulbind traits that you can get through Niya include:
      Row 1: Stay on the Move (on the same row with Sylvari Mantle) Row 4: Niya's Tools: Burrs // Niya's Tools: Poison // Niya's Tools: Herbs Row 7: Care Package // Swift Patrol Row 8: Grove Invigoration Note that you can only pick one Soulbind trait per row.
      Here's Niya's full Soulbind Path.
