This is going to be a good patch. Hoping they stick to the 77 day cycle, so this won't be another Siege of Orgrimmar. Raid looks good though too.

Thanks for this awesome info roundup. For me as a returning player very informative.

But I have a little problem, where the hell can I start the quest to go to Argus, can't find it anywhere. (I stopped playing when I hit lvl110 a year ago, and have now returned)

It should automatically pop up in your quest log when you visit Dalaran. I had a similar issue on PTR.

Go to

  • Bladefist Bay and talk to Lady Liadrin if you're Horde
  • Stormwind Harbor and talk to Vereesa if you're Alliance

Just to further Stan's advice above, it seems zoning into a new zone will trigger it if it hasn't already, for some reason.

Well it didn't show up all the time, so I hunted the issue down with a GM, and apparently you need to have completed the first steps of the order hall campaign so that the Broken Shore scenario becomes available and you need to complete the Assault on the Broken shore. After that the starting Quest "The Hand of Fate" becomes available.

Ah, so it was because you hadn't participated in the prior events rather than having done everything and it just didn't pop up. I misunderstood what your issue was, sorry!

      Mirror of Envious Dreams is an interesting costume toy from Revendreth that makes your character permanently (for now) wear the full Tier 3 or Tier 6 sets even though you don't physically possess the items that form the set. The item currently has no cooldown on the Beta.

      The toy comes from a chest in Revendreth's starting area. The illusion has a 10-minute duration,  no cooldown, and remains on during combat and mounting.
      Using the toy makes your character randomly wear either the full Tier 3 or the Tier 6 set.


      We're not sure if the toy will go live in its current form, but it will probably be limited by cooldown as it would be unfair to those who bought the Tier 3 pieces through the Black Market Auction House.
      Thanks to @Blainiefor the tip and images.

      Rextroy is back with a new video, where he one-shots players thanks to a combo which grants you 208% Versatility.
      For the combo, a full set of Surging Vitality is required for a total of 7,208 Versatility and Rank 3 Versatile in every slot. Buying that costs a lot of Echoes, and you are going to spend 5,000 Echoes for each Rank 3 Versatile amplifier.
      27x Surging Vitality grants you 195 Corruption, which is great because Inescapable Consequences won't kill you as it activates at 200+ Corruption.
      You receive a proc of Surging Vitality and then get out of combat to change gear into your Versatility amplifiers.
      That will benefit the Versatility proc you received from your first set of gear, leaving you with more than 200% Versatility while the proc is up.
      You will be using two different abilities to deal damage: Reaping Flames and Remote Guidance Device (on-use effects of the Remote Guidance Device Mechagon trinket).
      Two items will be used to proc Surging Vitality and to receive the Reaping Flames 100% damage buff: Gently Squeezed Toad from Shadowmoon Valley (Horde should find another NPC spawn item or use mobs out in the open world) and Sulfuron Slammer from Blackrock Depths.
      Gently Squeezed Toad spawns an NPC that you can one-shot with Reaping Flames to proc the buff. You will also be able to stay in combat with it and drink Sulfuron Slammer to damage yourself, giving you a chance to proc Surging Vitality.
      After proccing Surging Vitality and boosting your Reaping Flames, change gear to your Versatility amplifiers, and you can kill someone.
      Rextroy also added that you could use Precious Bloodthorn Loop from Shadowmoon Valley to vanish and get out of combat, which allows you to change gear. Still, you need to make sure that Surging Vitality procs from the player attacking you before you use the item.
      Here's the combo in action.

      Elegon now classifies as a Cloud Serpent in Shadowlands, meaning Hunters will be able to tame the boss located in Mogu'shan Vaults.
      How to School Your Serpent is a new item that teaches Hunters how to tame Cloud Serpents in Shadowlands. The good news is it's fairly easy to acquire. You can purchase the item directly Order of the Serpents Quartermaster at Exalted.
