I'm super excited for the cinematic. Blizzard's art team for cinematics is top quality right now, and I don't imagine how they could screw up a cinematic with Sargeras in it. I don't think I've been more hyped for an ingame cinematic.

Sargeras, after appearing in Elwynn to begin the unmaking blah blah blah, is undone after failing to consider that skinning a bear should aggro every bears.

      Handclaw is back to his race/class armor set roots, and as he mentioned in our recent interview, he's taking another swing at a set he'd already created. He said he views all of the sets as just a starting off point, and it seems the Tauren paladin one needed a remake! We got both an illustration style piece and and in-game armor looking one this time around, as well as a timelapse of how it was created!
      Some really impressive work there, and definitely better than the original he'd made before:

      And here's the creation process for the illustration:

      Here come some more PvP adjustments, as Corrupted Glad Spite and Breach get tweaked, along with the Versatile Corruption Effect, Reaping the Flames, Conflict and Strife and the Mistweaver Chrysalis talent.
      PvP Tuning (source)
      We’re working on a set of PvP tuning changes that will go live with scheduled weekly maintenance (early on June 9 in this region). This is what we’re currently testing:
      Corrupted Gladiator's Spite can once again stack more quickly when multiple Corrupted Gladiator’s Spite trinkets are used against a target. Void Portal summoned by Corrupted Gladiator's Breach is now slightly larger and easier to interact with when there are nearby units. Corruption Effects
      Versatile ’s effectiveness has been reduced by 33% when engaged in combat with enemy players. Azerite Essences
      Reaping Flames (Major – Rank 3) no longer activates on player-controlled targets such as pets, totems, or guardians. Resolved an issue that prevented Conflict and Strife (Major – Rank 2) effect from providing additional defensive benefit from versatility under the effects of certain class stuns. Monk
      Mistweaver Chrysalis (PvP Talent) now reduces the cooldown of Life Cocoon by 25 seconds (was 45 seconds). As always, we’ll let you know if there are any further changes to be made, or adjustments to those above, and we’ll report the final live changes in our Hotfixes Update.
