      Here's the final Alliance cinematic starring Jaina Proudmoore and her mother Katherine that plays after players complete the Alliance campaign. It's the equivalent to Horde's Zandalar Forever cinematic. Spoilers ahead!
      Update
      It appears that MMO-Spoilers ripped the video from Wowhead's Youtube channel. Thanks to Stiven for bringing this up. Just co clear this up, we weren't aware of that and replaced the video with the original posted by Wowhead. We'll also refrain from using MMO-Spoilers as a source moving forward.
      Alliance Finale
      Jaina's story in Battle for Azeroth has been great so far. We've seen her nightmares, Katherine willing to punish her for treason, and even her visions of painful memories. In the final cinematic after Katherine accepted her as a daughter, she tells Jaina that the heart of the Kul Tiran fleet hasn't returned home for a long time. Jaina holds her father's pendant and starts humming Daughter of the Sea (the song introduced in Warbringers). Much to Lady Ashvane's dismay, the entire fleet miraculously returns to Boralus and Jaina's promoted to Lord Admiral.

      New cinematics have appeared as players reached level 120 on live servers.
      The following article contains major lore spoilers!
      Credit to MMO-Champion for the videos.
      Yesterday, we looked at the Horde intro to Zandalar, Jaina's nightmare and her arrival to Kul Tiras. Check out the cinematics here if you missed them.
      Jaina's Visions & Reunion
      Katherine sees Jaina relive painful memories. These include memories of Arthas, her father Daelin, Rhonin, and Varian. Mother and daughter are reunited at the end of the video.
      Bwonsamdi Cinematic
      King Rastakhan lost a mighty source of power after Prophet Zul killed Rezan. He enters a desperate pact with Bwonsamdi, the Loa of Death, to aid him in the battle ahead, but at what price...?
      Zandalar Forever Cinematic
      Here's the final cinematic that plays after you complete the Zandalar Forever scenario. Zul orders Mythrax to shatter the final seal and free G'huun just before Rastakhan kills him. Both Mythrax and Zul will be bosses in Battle for Azeroth's Uldir raid.
      It's needless to say that Blizzard have outdone themselves with the Jaina cinematics. The Horde cinematics aren't bad too, but the strong Black Panther vibe makes them somewhat ridiculous. Do you agree?

      Update: Gingi has removed the VoD of the leveling experience due to some problematic content in the video, but will be posting an edited version of the entire leveling experience to youtube soon. Here's his tweet on the subject and you can still watch the whole experience through Deepshades',and Meeres' PoVs.

       
      ________________________________________________________________
      Well, this was quite insane. It seems Method's Gingi decided to one-up his fellow teammate Fragnance, who got the WF level 110 in Legion in 5 and a half hours. Well, it took Gingi, or rather Luigingi, 4 hours and 17 or so minutes to finish up Battle for Azeroth's leveling, in a team of three, along with Method's Meeres and Deepshades, using his boomkin:

       
       
      If you want to see how exactly he did it, you can check out his full leveling video, but it seems they just went for really REALLY fast questing (obviously tested on beta) with no special shenanigans involved (at least that I could find at first glance):
       

      Method's Gingi dinged 120 in 4 hours 17 minutes!

      Obviously, Deepshades and Meeres dinged very quickly after Gingi, and here are their full streams of the leveling process as well, linked to the final minute - Deepshades, Meeres.
      And some thanks from the WF Gingi himself:

      As expected we're getting a daily dose of hotfixes after the BfA launch and today's feature Azerite Gear traits getting tweaked, end of zone dungeon quest XP getting a significant increase, as well as a lot more profession and quest fixes.
      August 15 (source)
      Azerite Gear
      Fixed an issue where the Azerite Trait Reckless Flurry was incorrectly increasing ability damage, in addition to auto attack damage. 7th Legionnaire's Tunic and Honorbound Outrider's Vestments now correctly have an Outlaw Rogue trait. The extra Subtlety Rogue trait has been removed. Fixed an issue where the Azerite Trait Wild Fleshrending was not increasing the damage of Swipe for Guardian Druids. Dungeons
      Experience rewarded from end-of-zone dungeon quests has been greatly increased. Fixed an issue where players couldn't complete “Temple of Sethraliss: Ecological Research” in The Temple of Sethraliss on Normal difficulty. Items
      Harlan's Loaded Dice now scales correctly with item level for its spells. Pet Battles
      Francois can now be properly summoned and used in Pet Battles by Alliance characters. Fixed a bug that prevented Peachy and Winkle from battling as intended.
        Professions
      Archaeology Fixed a bug that caused some digsites near Vigil Hill in Tiragarde Sound from providing fragments as intended. Blacksmithing Crafting the Recipe: Stormsteel Spear recipe now creates the correct item. Mining Fixed a bug that prevented ore gathered in Kul'Tiras and Zandalar from being stored in certain bags, as intended. Quests
      Fixed a bug causing one of the Shadra Betrayers to evade during "The Ancient One". Fixed a bug that caused the Ancient Gong to sometimes become unusable during “Strong Alcohol”. Fixed a bug that made Taelia disappear under rare circumstances on “Pet Wind Serpent”. It should be harder to get separated from Rastakhan on "Ruby Inferno". “The Mine Sweeper” is now easier to locate and obtain. Goblin Mine Technicians aren't the tidiest bunch and may have left an extra Cracked Mine Sweeper in the Saltstone Mine. Players who disconnect before turning in "Dress to Impress" should now be able to properly see Flynn in the Dead Man's Tale. Fixed an issue where players could move during "Rest in the Depths", breaking the channeled spell. The Island Expeditions quest “Notched Coin” can now be turned in to Mili Wanderbrew. On “Return to Gloom Hollow”, players should no longer be able to get into a state where Titan Keeper Hezrel will not move. Previous Patch 8.0.1 Hotfixes

      Gameinformer recently interviewed Game Director Ion Hazzikostas about how Blizzard maintains Warcraft lore. Did you know they had a team of WoW historians? Check out the highlights!
      Check out Gamenformer for the full interview!
      Interview Highlights
      Blizzard has a team of three lore scholars, Sean Copeland is the historian supervisor of the team. Their role is to field lore and research requests made by their internal dev teams, review publications, participate in creative sessions, and host lore seminars. WoW historians maintain language and pronunciation databases for specific phrases and terms. WoW covers plenty of languages: Eredun, Zandali, or Shath'yar (language of the Old Gods). One of the writers once requested pronunciation for the phrase: "Ak’agthshi ma uhnish, ak’uq shg’cul vwahuhn", which means "Our numbers are endless, our power beyond reckoning!" Alleria made a return in Patch 7.3 and it was up to the historians to track down every place where she was mentioned to ensure they don't do anything inconsistent. In Cataclysm, the final boss was Sinestra. They wanted a red dragon to come and join the players in the fight, ending with a sacrifice that would help players defeat the boss. It would have made sense to include Krasus in the encounter, but they realized he died in a book. Khadgar in the Warcraft Movie was much younger in the film than they had imagined him being at that point in time. In the Burning Crusade, he was depicted much older and had a long beard, so they decided to give him a new model. The goal with WoW Chronicles was to craft a cohesive and complelling guidebook that covers the entire history of the Warcraft universe. Copeland's team believes that continuity exists to enhance the story, not to tie the hands of creators.
