High Voltage + Unlimited Power seem like they're gonna synergize pretty well, especially with Totem Mastery or Storm Elemental.

Too bad they are on the same line as Echo and Ascendence. Ele rotation without Echo specially is really boring and clunky.

I really like the mechanic behind Avenging Crusader.  Allowing a paladin to DPS while still healing others gives greater depth to the class and enriches gameplay.  I'd like to see one or two more healing classes having this option, so that it isn't limited to Disc Priests and Holy Paladins, but this is a good start.

      Players with item level 410 and above can queue up and enter Gift of Flesh this week to defeat Shad'har, Drest’agath, and Il'gynoth in LFR for item level 430 loot.
      The third LFR wing of Ny'alotha has opened this week and the final Raid Finder Wing 4 opens March 10.
      Blizzard (Source)
      GIFT OF FLESH
      Shad’har the Insatiable
      One of N’Zoth’s most nightmarish creations, Shad’har the Insatiable feasts on the corrupted carcasses that the Old God’s minions discard into its domain. Tormented by ceaseless hunger, Shad’har’s body twists and mutates with every corpse it devours.
      Drest’agath
      The grotesque amalgam of flesh known as Drest’agath slumbered beneath Ny’alotha for millennia until being awakened by N’Zoth’s return. Now she rises like a revolting boil, ready to burst and spread her vile pestilence across Azeroth.
      Il’gynoth, Corruption Reborn
      Following its defeat in the Emerald Nightmare, Il’gynoth retreated into the depths of Ny’alotha to regain its strength. Now it has fused with the city’s architecture and spreads across the Black Empire like a creeping infestation. As Il’gynoth’s corrupting flesh grows ever larger, so does its power.

      Blizzard has shipped a second encrypted Shadowlands Alpha build two days in a row this week and while we are not able to datamine it just yet due to the missing decryption key, it seems Alpha is coming sometime this week.
      On February 20, Blizzard shipped the first encrypted Shadowlands Alpha Build 9.0.1.33411. Yesterday, they shipped the second encrypted Shadowlands Alpha Build 9.0.1.33451 Today, they shipped the third encrypted Shadowlands Alpha Build 9.0.1.33480. This makes you probably wonder when to expect Shadowlands Alpha. The ongoing discussion over at MMO-Champion and a clip from Preach's stream, strongly hint at Shadowlands Alpha being announced this week.

      Nothing has been obviously confirmed yet by Blizzard, so take this information with a grain of salt.

      Update: the daily quest Coalescing Visions reward increase was actually a typo and it's now been fixed - it is a 30% increase and not a 50% one.

      The massive February 24th hotfixes are here, featuring both the class and Horrific Vision tuning, as well as Explosive Orb M+ affix changes, Ny'alotha tuning, and even more Horrific Visions changes. In WoW Classic we have Razorgore only save raids to the instance if he was killed after all the eggs were destroyed.
      February 24 (source)
      February 24, 2020
      Classes
      Druid Restoration [With regional restarts] Rejuvenation now costs 10% base mana (was 10.5%). [With regional restarts] Efflorescence now costs 17% base mana (was 21.6%). [With regional restarts] Tranquility direct healing increased 11%. Developers’ note: These changes should improve Restoration Druid’s raid healing output, without much impact to their already strong capabilities in dungeons and Arena. Hunter Marksmanship [With regional restarts] Damage of all abilities increased by 5%. Mage Frost [With regional restarts] Damage of all abilities increased by 5%. Monk Windwalker [With regional restarts] Damage of all abilities increased by 5%. Damage unchanged in PvP. Rogue Outlaw Resolved an issue that could prevent Blade Flurry from damaging some types of creatures in Uldum and Vale of Eternal Blossoms. Shaman Enhancement Damage of all abilities increased by 3%. Warlock Demonology [With regional restarts] Damage of all abilities increased by 5%. Dungeons and Raids
      Mythic Keystone Dungeons Explosive Affix Explosive Orbs again immediately put players into combat. Explosive Orbs can again be tab-targeted. Developers’ note: When testing the Awakened affix, we found that Explosive Orbs could sometimes prevent players from entering or exiting Ny'alotha Spires and Rifts if their party was in combat inside the instance. To solve this issue, we changed them to not place players in combat immediately. However, this had the unintended side effect of breaking player expectations around tab-targeting Explosive Orbs, so we're reverting their threat-generation behavior and trying an alternate solution. Ny’alotha, the Waking City Azeroth's Radiance now properly restores Sanity to players who are under the effects of an Immunity spell on all difficulties. Vexiona Cultists now have their health adjusted based on raid size, up to a maximum 10% reduction for 10-player raids on Normal and Heroic difficulties. Ra-den the Despoiled Resolved an issue that allowed Re-origination Anchors to be attackable with area of effect spells. Horrific Visions
      Research into Synchronized Mind Stabilizer has improved, now always reviving the player with at least half their Sanity. Horrific Vision of Stormwind Magister Umbric now casts Frozen Storm twice during the encounter (was 3 times). Items and Rewards
      Torn Pages of “Fear and Flesh” The number of Torn Page of "Fear and Flesh" quest items required for the rank 13-15 cloak quests has been reduced. Rank 13 now requires 4 Torn Pages (down from 6). Rank 14 now requires 6 Torn Pages (down from 12). Rank 15 now requires 8 Torn Pages (down from 18). Developers’ note: This change should make all the quests completable by most players in the week and not require players to feel the need to save as many keys week to week. Along with our other quality-of-life changes, this should help newer characters catch up with their peers. [With regional restarts] Up to 4 Torn Page of "Fear and Flesh" quest items can now drop in Horrific Visions from objectives on the rank 7-11 legendary cloak upgrade quests (max of 2). Developers’ note: Players will need to clear more than two side areas in one run to get more than two pages. The rank 13-15 quests will still drop a max of 2 pages, only from Lost Area objectives. Coalescing Visions Coalescing Visions now drop in higher numbers from Assaults and Daily Quests. [With regional restarts] Visions of N’Zoth daily quests now reward 50% 30% more Coalescing Visions. [With regional restarts] The N’Zoth Assault now rewards 2500 Coalescing Visions (in addition to a Vessel of Horrific Visions). [With regional restarts] Lesser Threats will now reward 6500 Coalescing Visions (was 5500). Heart of Azeroth Reaping Flames (Essence) will no longer have its cooldown reduced to 5 seconds and deal additional damage when killing Twisted Appendages. Player versus Player
      Tank-specialization characters take an additional 50% damage from enemy players (was 40%). Death Knight Blood Death Strike now heals for 12.5% of damage taken when engaged in combat with enemy players (was 25%). Death Strike now heals for a minimum of 3.5% of maximum health when engaged in combat with enemy players (was 7%). Frost, Unholy [With regional restarts] Death Strike now heals for 30% of damage taken when engaged in combat with enemy players (was 40%). [With regional restarts] Death Strikee now heals for a minimum of 5% of maximum health when engaged in combat with enemy players, down from 10%. Mage Arcane [With regional restarts] Prismatic Barrier now absorbs 40% less damage when engaged in combat with enemy players. Fire [With regional restarts] Blazing Barrier absorbs 40% less damage when engaged in combat with enemy players. Frost [With regional restarts] Ice Barrier absorbs 40% less damage when engaged in combat with enemy players. Warlock Affliction, Destruction [With regional restarts] Demon Armor now increases Stamina by 5%, (was 10%). [With regional restarts] Demon Armor now increases Armor by 90% (was 150%). WoW Classic
      Razorgore the Untamed now only saves players to the raid instance if defeated after the eggs have been destroyed.

      We have further updates on the Horrific Visions tuning coming tomorrow/Wednesday to go with the class changes, as we have some specifics to check out - from the exact numbers on the Coalescing Visions rewards increases to the Torn Pages required for cloak upgrades.
      Horrific Visions Changes (source)
      I’ve updated the OP here with further information.
      UPDATED 2:45 p.m. PST Monday, February 24
      We’re working on a set of hotfixes to the game that should streamline upgrading your Legendary cloak via Horrific Visions.
      We now have some specifics to outline. Once again, these changes will come into effect with scheduled weekly maintenance:
      Coalescing Visions
      Visions of N’Zoth Daily Quests now reward 50% more Coalescing Visions. The main N’Zoth Threat now rewards 2500 Coalescing Visions (in addition to a Vessel of Horrific Visions ). Lesser Threats now reward 6500 Coalescing Visions. Quests to Increase Cloak Rank
      For Rank 13, the Quest now requires 4 Torn Pages (was 6). For Rank 14, the Quest now requires 6 Torn Pages (was 12). For Rank 15, the Quest now requires 8 Torn Pages (was 18). Posted previously–
      Coalescing Visions now drop in higher numbers from Assaults and Daily Quests. The Unique(5) inventory cap on Vessel of Horrific Visions has been removed, allowing you to carry as many Vessels as you like. Up to 4 Torn Pages of “Fear and Flesh” quest items can now drop in Horrific Visions from objectives on the rank 7-11 Legendary cloak upgrade quests (was a max of 2). You’ll need to clear more than two sides areas in one run to get more than two pages. The rank 13-15 quests will still drop a max of 2 pages, only from Lost Area objectives. These updates will go into effect with weekly maintenance (Tuesday, February 25 in this region).

      We have some changes to the class balancing coming tomorrow and Wednesday, with Windwalkers and Death Knights having some changes reverted and some of the nerfs lessened for PvP:
      Class Balance (source)
      I’ve updated the OP above with three further adjustments:
      Windwalkers will not have their damage increased in PvP situations. For Unholy and Frost DKs, Death Strike healing is being taken down to 30% in PvP. For Blood DKs, Death Strike healing is being taken down to 19% in PvP. And here are the original class balance changes that were already announced, without the modifications from above:
