I really like the Void Elf Strider, the Moose and Crusher are too similar to existing mounts. Whereas the Mana Saber is actually nice although it resembles the Arcanist's mount. I like that there is no backrest on that one. I would really love to have one of those Brontosaurs (you could see them in the Zandalar Video) as the next step in the evolution of the Grand Expidition Yak :-)

Otherwise I have to say that I really dislike the Nightbornes' heritage armour. They could have done something great like the disguise you get in Court of Stars. But we get that feathery leather robe excuse....

At least we get to play them. Looking forward to playing Nightborne and Zandalari the most by far.

I absolutely love the idea of allied races and the gazillion possibilities for future races that could become playable. And I will definitely reroll my Arcane Mage alt as a Nightborne, that is way too fitting. I was just way too exited about those floaty, glowy shoulder bits and the general skimpiness of the male Nightborne armour stuff. Which is the sole reason for my slight disappointment ;-)

I will most likely become one of those double agents though... I want to play everything on both sides... :-)

Haha, I see what you mean, I sure hope they will add that as a model option. 

Arcane mage is without a doubt the most notable spec for a nightborne, I agree with you there!

What about the Dark Iron Dwarf Mount?

It's not in the game files yet.

I guess it is going to be some kind of ram though, and probably a raptor for the Zandalari.

Everyone wants to be a nightborne but can you truly be a night borne if you aren't constantly yelling, "An Illusion? What are you hiding?"

 

That is what macros are for ;-)

And what about rerolling a shaman/druid/hunter as Highmountain Tauren?

I do not like to play as a Tauren... So no Reroll there :-)

      Update: an official Blizzard post has explained that Conduit item levels will in fact be going above item level 210, as well as many other details about the system, which you can check out here.

      Soulbind Conduits in Shadowlands will be hard-capped at Item Level 210 or Rank 5 in the first raid tier of Shadowlands.
      Soulbind Conduits have 15 ranks of power, and in the latest Shadowlands Beta build, we learned how to upgrade them through a consumable sold by Ve'nari in the Maw.

      Today, we found out that in the first raid tier of the expansion (and also Mythic Season 1), Soulbind Conduits will be hard-capped at Rank 5, 210 being the highest obtainable.
      If you run the following macro in the game and manually replace conduitID and conduitRank, you will see Conduit tooltips with various ranks in the chat. Thanks to AcidWeb from the Shaman Discord for providing the macro.
      /run print(C_Soulbinds.GetConduitHyperlink(conduitID, conduitRank)) In the following example, we used the Iron Maiden Conduit and figured out that Soulbind Conduits will be capped at Rank 5 or Item Level 210 in the first raid tier of the expansion. The difference between Rank 5 and Rank 6 is 90 item levels.
      Conduit Rank 1: Item Level 155 Conduit Rank 2:  Item Level 165 Conduit Rank 3: Item Level 180 Conduit Rank 4: Item Level 195 Conduit Rank 5: Item Level 210 Conduit Rank 6: Item Level 300 Conduit Rank 7: Item Level 300 Conduit Rank 8: Item Level 300 Conduit Rank 9: Item Level 300 Conduit Rank 10: Item Level 300 Conduit Rank 11: Item Level 300 Conduit Rank 12: Item Level 300 Conduit Rank 13: Item Level 300 Conduit Rank 14: Item Level 300 Conduit Rank 15: Item level 300 Below are Ranks 1 through 6 and the final rank of the Conduit.

      Item Levels of Rewards in Shadowlands
      For comparison, here are the item levels of rewards that you get from various sources in the new expansion.
      Crafted Gear
      Item Level: 151-168 (upgradable with Crafter's Mark II) Shadowlands Dungeon Loot
      Rewards from dungeons start at Item Level 158 on Normal difficulty in Mythic Season 1. The Item Level will increase throughout the expansion.
      Normal Difficulty: Item Level 158 Heroic Difficulty: Item Level 170 Mythic Difficulty: Item Level 183 Timewalking: Item Level 158 Shadowlands PvP Loot
      Honor gear: Item Level 158-190 (upgradable) Conquest gear: Item Level 190-222 (upgradable) Shadowlands Raids/World Boss Loot
      The last two Castle Nathria bosses (Stonelegion Guardians and Sire Denathrius drop better loot from the rest of the raid).
      Raid Finder Difficulty: Item Level 187-194 Normal Difficulty: Item Level 200-207 Heroic Difficulty: Item Level 213-220 Mythic Difficulty: Item Level: 226-233 Timewalking: Item Level 200 Shadowlands World Bosses: Item Level 207

      There's a beta wipe coming this week, most likely late on Wednesday, mostly to address issues players are having with quest flow. There will also be 2 new options after the wipe for character copy, with level 50 and 60 options available.

      Whether this indicates anything about much awaited pre-patch arrival date is hard to say, but it seems pretty definitive that we won't be seeing it pop up tomorrow. In fact, with still no news from Blizzard, even next week, the long-presumed October 6th/7th release date, is starting to not look so hot.
      Shadowlands Beta Wipe (source)
      Later this week when we take the Shadowlands Beta offline for its weekly update, all test characters will be removed from the Shadowlands Beta realms. Over recent weeks, many of the bug reports we’ve received are related to player-characters getting into a broken state due to changes in questlines or Covenant flow. These are not bugs that could occur in a live environment, and they often mask other issues that we still need to identify and fix. When the Shadowlands Beta resumes public availability, testers will want to copy or create new characters in order to resume testing.
      Thereafter, on test realms you’ll find that Renown with all Covenants will be set back to its initial, Week 1 state. Please note that there will be two options for template test characters: On the Maw and Oribos realms, you’ll find character copy and Level 50 templates for testing the initial experience. On the Torghast realm, there will be Level 60 character templates and vendors that support PvP, dungeon, and raid testing. This will skip the Shadowlands level-up content and put the test character right before their Covenant choice.
      As in previous weeks, we’re targeting late Wednesday morning (PDT) for the time when we’ll take the Beta realms offline and do maintenance, remove all characters, and update the build.
      Thank you to all Beta testers for your continued testing and feedback!

      We have some official clarification from Blizzard on how exactly aspects of Conduits work, from item levels, drop locations, loot type and a lot more! It seems the item levels will go above 210, as an example of a Mythic raid drop is mentioned to be 213, unlike what we previously assumed. The good news is there will be multiple sources for Conduits, from vendors and drops, and they're always Personal loot and class-specific, and drop in addition to other loot from a source.

      The other bigger piece of news is that Stygia is going to be more rare, as the repeatable reward from Torghast is being removed.
      Conduits (source)
      We’ve recently seen a number of questions about how Conduits work in Shadowlands. Here’s a brief explainer:
      Conduits are items, and they have item levels like other loot you’ll see in Shadowlands. Currently in the Beta, Heroic dungeon loot is item level 171 and Normal difficulty Castle Nathria is dropping iLvl 200 gear. Like other loot, the higher the Conduit’s item level, the more powerful its effect.
      Conduits can come from many sources, including dungeon bosses, raid bosses, the PvP vendor, and World Quests and content (via Callings). Conduits go into a collection, making it unnecessary to repeatedly earn individual Conduits at a given item level.
      Conduits drop as personal loot and are class-based, so they don’t differ based on your active spec or your loot spec. They’re also additive with other loot drops – a Conduit won’t replace an item that a boss might otherwise have dropped. Conduits are not tradeable.
      Our goal is to offer one or more ways of targeting the specific Conduits that you might want (such as PvP vendors and loot drops), in addition to those available via Callings and a catch-all Conduit sold by Ve’nari in the Maw.
      Specific to Ve’nari, we’re in the process of removing Stygia as a repeatable reward from Twisting Corridors. Our goal here is for the Eye of the Jailer in the Maw to be a limiting factor on Stygia gains. As with other items, you can experience big upgrades when replacing Conduits. If you have an iLvl 171 version of a Conduit, and you obtain an iLvl 213 version of that Conduit from a Mythic Keystone dungeon, you’ll take it to the Forge of Bonds and enjoy your nice upgrade.

      It appears Blizzard is removing Rank 2 and 3 Warlords of Draenor crafted item appearances in the Shadowlands pre-patch.
      UPDATE: Blizzard just confirmed that the appearances will only be removed temporarily.
      The news comes from Redditor macrotransactions, who figured out that Warlords of Draenor upgrade tokens (Burnished Essence) have been turned into gray items (Burnished Essence) in the Shadowlands pre-patch, which means you will be no longer able to upgrade the crafted items.
      Rank 2 and Rank 3 crafted items from Warlords of Draenor have unique appearances, and the removal affects all professions.
      Warlords of Draenor recipes are heavily daily-locked, so if you want to obtain the appearances now before they get removed, get ready to spend a lot of gold on the Auction House.
      At this time, we do not know if this is a bug or intended.

      We recently noticed that some Warlords of Draenor item appearances will become unobtainable starting with the Shadowlands pre-patch, specifically rank 2 and 3 crafted items. However, we now found out that that was an unintended consequence of SL development and that we will be getting the appearances back in a later patch!
      WoD Items (source)
      Yes, this is a side effect of Shadowlands development.
      We already have plans to reintroduce all of the transmogs in a future patch. So they’ll only be unobtainable temporarily.
