after 4 i abandon ship. doing lfr on all alts each week for legend farm and having too much free time i've concluded he's not quite as bad as archi at least at lower levels. in crapfire it 95% of the time if you didn't have 10 stacks there was no hope, with kiljaeden my groups have been a bit better than that, highest i've personally seen is about 6 stacks, soooo it something? i guess XD

      We have possibly one of the most minor hotfix batches ever today, as one fix was implemented, allowing Zandalari players to accept an Argent Tournament quest.
      August 13 (source)
      Zandalari Trolls are now able to accept the Argent Tournament quest "Valiant Of Orgrimmar ".

      The Mission Table has been upgraded in Shadowlands to Adventures, an auto-battler that you will be able to play through the WoW Companion App and here is the official preview of the feature.
      Prepare to put your tactical skills to the test. In the expansion’s new Adventures feature, you’ll send your allies into the Shadowlands to tackle unique challenges for your chosen Covenant. You’ll need to be strategic about how you take on these combat puzzles, including who you’ll send to face them and how you’ll use their skills to claim victory.
      You’ll also be able to check in on and continue your Adventures offline with the WoW Companion App.
      Once you’ve joined your chosen Covenant, you’ll be able to begin undertaking Adventures from the dedicated table within your Sanctum. Through the interface, you’ll be able to view available Adventures, the associated rewards, the cost to undertake them, the state of your units, and how challenging the enemies are within that Adventure. You’ll want to choose a solid mix from your Adventurers, Soulbinds, and troops to create a party of up to 5 units to deal with the various threats.
      With the introduction of Soulbinds in Shadowlands, we wanted to find a compelling way to bring their individual personality traits into as many aspects of the game as possible, including Adventures. Similar to previous high-profile personalities in past expansions’ Missions, Soulbinds will be able to lead the charge while expressing their own motivations and goals through the Adventures system.
      When it’s time to prepare for battle, positioning matters. You’ll need to use strategy in how you place your Adventurers to take on the enemies they’ll engage with and counter their abilities. For example, you may want to make sure your toughest allies are placed in the front of the formation, with more fragile allies placed toward the back so damage to them is minimized and they can use their ranged abilities.
      At the completion of an Adventure, you’ll be able to see the results through a replay of the battle. You’ll want to pay close attention to which units performed well, which you may want to reposition, or which you might want to exclude in future similar fights to make the most of them in your next encounters.
      To the victor goes the spoils! Should your troops defeat the encounter, you’ll collect your earned rewards including pets, mounts, gold, Anima, and more.
      Each Covenant provides a variety of 15 unique allies, including the Soulbinds that you’ll meet, 6 Adventurers that you’ll recruit through Renown, and an additional 6 who can be rescued from within Torghast, Tower of the Damned. Four universal Adventurers can also be recruited by any Covenant from within Torghast, bringing your potential allies to 19.
      As your allies progress through the various challenges that Adventures present, they’ll grow stronger, allowing them to take on more challenging Adventures for even better rewards.
      Check back on the official site in the future to learn more about the updated WoW Companion App.

      Obviously, spoilers for what happens to Nathanos in the pre-patch below.

      We've known for quite some time that Nathanos would be some type of world boss in the pre-patch, but now it's time for his fate to be sealed... at least until Shadowlands comes around and we maybe possibly see him again. In any case, everyone's (least) favorite toady is getting his comeuppance in the pre-patch, as he's both a World Quest and regular quest target! We have some footage of the encounter, as we figured a lot of players would like to see him die (again), and there's actually a really cool ending to the quest, as we find out who exactly performed the killing blow after the fights stops at 10%.

      A cinematic then plays, but it's not implemented yet and replaced with a placeholder (the Teldrassil burning, of all things), but we do find out afterwards that Tyrande delivered the killing blow, as Lorthemar tells us, so presumably the cinematic will show us that part. We even get a speech from Calia Menethil thrown in as well!

      It seems there won't be any physical copies of Shadowlands available for the Base Edition of the game, so you will need to purchase the Collector's Edition if you're looking to get one.
      Reddit user tERROR2693 pointed out they had a call from their local game supplier that canceled their Shadowlands pre-order because there will be only physical copies of the Collector's Edition available and the Base Edition of the game will be digital-only.
