An overview of all events that await us in Azeroth this month.

Antorus, the Burning Throne Raid Finder Wing 3 opens January 2. The final wing will become available two weeks later on January 16. Blizzard should also release Patch 7.3.5 before the Call of the Scarab micro-holiday (January 21 - 23). For more information about all events, check out the Patch 7.3.5 content hub and our "This Week in WoW" series.

Azeroth’s citizens have survived to fight another day. While the odors of Fel still waft through the air, things seem to be looking up–if the sight of Argus above Azeroth means anything.

There’s more to be done, however, and it’s time once more to take stock in your life on Azeroth and set forth a few resolutions. Will you vow to gain more Achievements? Take your Mythic Keystone difficulty to new heights? Will you fish all the fish of Azeroth? Or, will you simply vow to be a better citizen of the world with good will in your heart for all—except for the opposite faction of course.

After you’ve looked at what’s ahead this month, share your WoW resolution for the year ahead with us in the comments below.

It may be a new year, but the fight against the Burning Legion continues on Argus and in the raid dungeon–Antorus, the Burning Throne.

Oh my, that picture for the Legion Dungeon Event is so fitting. Nobody cared for the big snake head because the real danger were those pesky seagulls :-)

      Lady Jaina Proudmoore was not dropping any Glacial Tidestorms on Mythic difficulty after they buffed the drop rate to two mounts per run. As a result, she has been reverted to only drop 1 mount until the underlying issue gets fixed.
      Blizzard is currently investigating a bug that affects Mythic Jaina in the Battle of Dazar'alor raid and she now only drops one Glacial Tidestorm until further notice.
      Customer Support won't be granting additional mounts while the drop rate is reverted, according to the official support page.

      We should have received two mounts after today's hotfix, however after we kill Jaina we receive no mount at all.
      We identified an issue were Lady Jaina Proudmoore was not dropping any Glacial Tidestorm mounts on Mythic difficulty. She has been reverted to now drop only 1 mount again while the underlying issue is investigated.

      Customer Support will not be granting additional mounts while the drop rate is reverted.
      In the latest round of hotfixes, Blizzard buffed the drop rate of Glacial Tidestorm and Ny'alotha Allseer to two per run, because it took up to 20 weeks for a full Mythic group to get the mounts for each member. You can find more details here.

      Head to Dalaran and talk to the Archaeology Trainer to receive the The Right Path quest where you are sent to Thunder Totem in Highmountain to collect Bone Fragment of Eche'ro for the Spirit of Eche'ro mount. Note that the quest is available only once every six months, so don't forget to complete it before it's gone!
      Download MapCoords or some other addons that displays coordinates on the world map. Teleport to Azsuna from the Stormwind/Orgrimmar Portal Room or use your Dalaran Hearthstone to reach Dalaran. Go to 41,26 find Dariness the Learned and learn Archaeology if you already haven't. Accept The Right Path quest from the Archaeology Trainer and fly to Thunder Totem in Highmountain. Talk to Lessah Moonwater to accept Laying to Rest. For the quest, you must collect 600 Bone Fragment of Eche'ro from four digsites in Highmountain. Digsite: Darkfeather Valley (50, 44) Digsite: Dragon's Falls (58, 72) Digsite: Path of Huin (44, 72) Digsite: Whitewater Wash (39, 65) Spirit of Eche'ro
      "The spirit of Huln Highmountain's pet moose."

      Hurry up! You only have until February 26 to get the mount!

      Redditor Arang_Choi is back with two more recreations of Warcraft lore icons in Minecraft, after his Lich King one we've already covered. We get to see how Illidan, Ragnaros and Deathwing were made in their truly massive scope (or megabuilds, as they're called), and they're really impressive.
      While I'd say Ragnaros came out the best of the three, Illidan is really great as well, even coming off a little Protoss/Zeratul-y with the low details in his face - or maybe he's just wearing a Defias mask:
      Ragnaros is his old fiery self, but it seems this version is post-Molten Core, as some raiders have taken Sulfuras from him and/or doused it in a whole lot of Eternal Quintessence!
      Deatwing is appropriately gigantic, and maybe we can get him and the Stormwind recreation together to re-enact the ending of the Cataclysm intro cutscene.

      Which one is your favorite?

      In the latest round of hotfixes, Blizzard increased the number of Mythic mounts that drop from BfA end bosses to two, meaning Jaina will drop two Glacial Tidestorms and N'Zoth two Ny'alotha Allseers, instead of just one. 
      It took a whole raid group up to 20 weeks to obtain Mythic mounts from BfA end bosses, so Blizzard decided to increase the number of mounts that drop on Mythic difficulty to two given that both mounts will have their drop chance reduced to 1% once Shadowlands goes live.
      Glacial Tidestorm drops from Lady Jaina Proudmoore on Mythic Difficulty in Battle of Dazar'alor.
      "Though she commands a variety of magical powers, Jaina has always been most proficient at summoning powerful elementals of water and ice."

      Ny'alotha Allseer drops from N'Zoth on Mythic difficulty in Ny'alotha the Waking City.
      "To find him, drown yourself in the Circle of Stars."

      You can find more about Visions of N'Zoth mounts here.

      We have a whole lot more Mythic mounts coming in as both Jaina and N'Zoth are dropping double the amount, more nerfs for healers in Horrific Visions (in groups of 2), as well as specific Stormwind vision nerfs, a brawl switch for PvP and more.

      For Classic we have a fix for a disconnect issue when queueing for a Battleground.
      February 14 (source)
      Dungeons and Raids
      Battle of Dazar’alor Lady Jaina Proudmoore now drops 2 Glacial Tidestorm mounts (was 1) when defeated on Mythic difficulty. Ny’alotha, the Waking City N’Zoth the Corruptor now drops 2 Ny'alotha Allseer mounts (was 1) when defeated on Mythic difficulty. With these mounts becoming quite rare once Shadowlands comes out, taking 20 weeks or more for a full Mythic raid group to get the mounts felt excessive. Horrific Visions
      Reduced the health of enemies for groups of 2 or more that include at least 1 healer. Developers’ note: We expected that groups with a healer would gain efficiency by taking more risks, but we've found that this gain is offset by healers shifting focus from damage to healing as group size increases, so we're adjusting creature health accordingly. Stormwind Alleria Windrunner Darkened Sky now drains 40 Sanity (was 60 Sanity). When the Trade District bonus objective is complete, Chains of Servitude is now cast once during the fight (was twice). Items and Rewards
      Corrupted Items Fixed an issue which prevented items from being forged with the +12 Corruption version of Ineffable Truth (Corruption Effect). Player versus Player
      The upcoming Teeming Islands Brawl has been replaced with Temple of Hotmogu. Temple of Hotmogu Brawl’s bonus movement speed and haste have been increased to 50%. WoW Classic
      Fixed an issue that could cause the player to disconnect from the game while waiting in a long queue for a Battleground.
