Patch 7.3: New In-Game Cinematics

Recommended Posts


The latest PTR build added new in-game cinematics at the cave in Krokuul where Magni communicates using the stone. You can click the stone and watch them again. Here are some screenshots of the cinematics.

The following events have cinematics so far:

Aggramar's Rise

Sargeras talks to Aggramar how the circle of rebirth nears completion and asks him if the titan souls are prepared.


Breaking of the Pantheon

Sargeras has been twisting the souls of Pantheon to his will for a long time to rebirth the Dark Pantheon. Eonar is still missing and her essence is needed to ensure the victory of Sargeras's crusade.


Life-Binder's Plea

Eonar talks about how Sargeras found her and players need to defend her in one of the Antorus encounters.

This raid is going to be hawt.  But then again I love lore... 

Same here and, let's be honest, with so many godly characters turning up, it's just going to be a feast of new lore and new revelations for the future.

      Ardenweald has been enabled for testing in this week's Shadowlands 9.0.1 Alpha Build 34615, so we looked at the zone in more detail, and came back with a collection of screenshots.

      Fire Mage Class Changes: June 3rd Ardenweald and Night Fae Covenant (Official Preview)  
    • By Stan
      Blizzard today outlined changes coming to Fire Mages in the near future on Shadowlands Alpha to give players more agency over spreading Ignite.
      The devs want to give Fire Mages more agency over spreading Ignite. At first, they wanted to make Fire Blast spread it, but the spell is used for Hot Streak, so they will make Phoenix's Flames baseline for Fire Mages, giving players more choice over when to spread Ignite. A replacement talent for Phoenix's Flames will be added in future builds.
      We want to make Ignite spread something the player has agency over, and first experimented with the past system of making Fire Blast spread it. However, because of the importance of using Fire Blast for Hot Streak very frequently, we’ve seen feedback that this creates a lot of tension and still makes it difficult to control when you and don’t want Ignite to spread.
      In the next alpha build, we’re going to try letting Phoenix's Flames fill this role, as a baseline spell for Fire Mages. This gives Phoenix's Flames a unique function and identity as a core spell, as well as allowing for more choice over when to spread Ignite. If we continue with the change, we’ll look into a new talent to replace Phoenix's Flames in upcoming builds.

      Blizzard has posted the official preview of Ardenweald and the Night Fae Covenant, meaning the zone will likely be enabled for testing in this week's Shadowlands Alpha Build.
      The Night Fae Covenant grants players the Soulshape Signature ability which transforms you into various creatures, increasing Movement Speed by 30%. You can read more about all Signature and Covenant Abilities in our guide.
      You can also find the Mists of Tirna Scithe dungeon in Ardenweald. The story of the zone revolves around the Winter Queen. You can read more spoilers in the datamined broadcast text.
      A twilight-tinged afterlife for those closely connected to the wild, Ardenweald is a domain of restoration tended by the mystic night fae. Within this eternal forest, massive dream trees draw in precious anima—the essence of souls that flows through the Shadowlands—to feed the spirits of nature awaiting rebirth into the cycle.
      The ethereal umbral forests of Ardenweald are where wild spirits return after their time on the mortal plane come to an end so that they can again be reborn. However, this lush afterlife paradise has suffered greatly from the mysterious anima drought plaguing the Shadowlands. Everything that grows here has begun to wither, and the cycle of reincarnation is in peril unless things change—and swiftly.
      First things first, you must seek out the Winter Queen—ruler of Ardenweald and the Night Fae Covenant—to deliver urgent news.
      Meet the denizens of Ardenweald.
      Mischievous tricksters of the woods, the mercurial faeries of Ardenweald use a mix of theatrical talents and cunning to care for rejuvenating spirits. Faeries use song to soothe away the pain of the great, resting spirits and snatch up lesser creatures lured by their eerie melodies, grinding them up into poultices. Faeries are just as easy to appease as they are to offend, so be wary of your actions.
      The fierce and daring vorkai are the protectors and guardians of Ardenweald.

      Vorkai make up the bulk of the Winter Queen’s Wild Hunt, who safeguard the domain against those seeking to bring imbalance. During the anima drought, it has fallen on them to enact the Winter Queen’s decrees of which groves flourish or are left to wither.
      Loyal, polite, and graceful, the sylvar are crafters and enchanters who create tools, foci, and magical objects to maintain the ebb and flow of existence in Ardenweald.

      Recently, some groves in Ardenweald have been decreed to let their nurtured souls perish, so that others may survive the drought.
      Calm, patient, and enigmatic even to others in the Shadowlands, the tirnenn are slow to action as well as anger. They are the eldest of the Fae Court—quiet and thoughtful, and generally friendly unless you threaten their groves.

      While slow to enrage, they are terrible to behold in battle, capable of shaping the land and flora around their enemies with frightening speed.
      Leader of Ardenweald, the ethereal Winter Queen is charged with the sacred task of maintaining the great cycle of rebirth: restoring perished loa, Wild Gods, Ancients, and other nature spirits and returning them to the mortal plane.

      She and the land are one; as the land thrives, so does she. But recently the land has grown sick, and this has taken a bitter toll on her. The anima drought has forced her to make hard choices over which groves to save and which to let go—losing beloved nature spirits in the process.
      With the drought weakening the guardians of Ardenweald, the ancient Drust have seized the opportunity to invade from their nightmarish realm of Thros. Using their twisted form of druidism to feed upon the dying groves, the Drust grow stronger with every wildseed that perishes. Though relatively few in number, the Drust are using dark rituals to pull the native fae into their forces.
      Spriggan are small, malicious creatures native to Ardenweald who live to create chaos. Some have heard the whispers of the death loa Mueh'zala, and gleefully carry out his plans. Others follow no ruler, simply reveling in the wanton mischief and destruction they unleash upon the inhabitants of Ardenweald.
      In addition to the native fae creatures that the forest calls forth to nurture the wildseeds, Ardenweald serves as an afterlife for mortal souls who shared a special bond with the natural cycle. Druids, hunters, and others who tended the land may be judged worthy of an eternity spent caring for the wilds. Upon arrival, these souls can choose an animal form infused with the celestial magic of Ardenweald.
      These are but a few of the entities you’ll encounter in Ardenweald. While adventuring, it's best to stay vigilant—you might even cross paths with long-passed heroes of Azeroth who now wander this world.
      When players reach maximum level and have explored the first four zones, they’ll be able to pledge themselves to a Covenant, like the Night Fae. Each Covenant offers its champions abilities, along with other powers and cosmetic rewards that can be unlocked through a Covenant Campaign—an epic storyline unique to the faction. This alliance also gives the player access to a Covenant Sanctum, a hall only open to players who have forged a pact with its rulers.
      Power of the Night Fae
      If you choose to join the Night Fae Covenant, you’ll gain two unique abilities—one class ability used in combat, as well as a signature ability to explore the world in a new way.
      Here is the signature ability that the Night Fae bestow upon their champions:
      To give you an idea of what to expect, you can view a list of the Covenant signature and class abilities Please keep in mind that all these are a work in progress and may have additional changes during the course of development and testing, so all abilities shown are subject to change.
      When you join a Covenant, you’ll be able to undergo an ancient rite to bind your soul to some of its most powerful members. By doing so, your character harnesses their power, gaining access to powerful bonuses. Over time, you can unlock new tiers of power and even switch Soulbinds when strategy demands it.
      Night Fae Covenant Spoils
      For your contributions to the Night Fae Covenant’s cause, you’ll be rewarded with several cosmetic rewards including: a mount, a pet, Night Fae-forged armor, and back attachments that will capture the Night Fae's attention.
      Armor Up
      Don specially crafted armor forged within the heart of Ardenweald.

      Rextroy just released a new video where he one-shotted Dresta'gath with Stormstrike for 39 million damage.
      It's important to note that Rextroy reported the game-breaking bug to the developers first before releasing this video so that no one could abuse it.
      The method revolves around the Enhancement Shaman's Crash Lightning (AoE) ability that didn't have a cap on its damage boost to Stormstrike, so to one-shot Dresta'gath, Rextroy needed like a 30,000% damage boost, which corresponds to approximately 6,000 adds without any boosts.
      Here's the whole thing in more detail taken from the video description:

      We have two Corruption fixes today, as the Gushing Wound nerf has finally arrived! There's also a fix for Ineffable Corruption and its effect on lockout times for interrupted spell schools.
      June 2 (source)
      Items and Rewards
      Corrupted Items Gushing Wound (Corruption Effect) damage over time effect has been reduced by 35%. Developer’s note: While we try to avoid changes like this outside of regular balance patch intervals, the changes we've made to the Corruption system to make Corruption more targetable and attainable risks turning a rare but powerful Corruption into the optimal choice in nearly every situation. With this reduction in damage, Gushing Wound will remain reasonably powerful in all situations, but will no longer be the most efficient source of damage per Corruption in all situations. Fixed a bug that caused the lockout time of interrupted spell schools to increase when the Ineffable Truth Corruption effect ends.
