Feels like pop out suddenly from somewhere. 🙂

The current one is at least combined with a meteor impact... new one seems to be a downgrade animation wise

      Azerite Powers and Essences will stop working as soon as you enter Shadowlands.
      In the latest Shadowlands Beta build, Heart of Azeroth now has a red warning in the tooltip, informing you that its effects are inactive in areas without abundant Azerite, which means Azerite Powers and Essences will cease to work when you start your journey in the Shadowlands and they won't work for leveling.

    • By Stan
      In the latest round of Shadowlands class changes, Blizzard capped Death and Decay's Scourge Strike to hit four targets, and Shadow Priests received some significant changes, including new talents.
      Death Knight
      Unholy
      Death and Decay - While you remain within the area, your Scourge Strike will hit all up to 4 enemies near the target. Monk
      Brewmaster
      Celestial Brew - Purifying Stagger damage increases absorption by up to 400% 200%. Purifying Brew - Increases the absorption of your next Celestial Brew by up to 400% 200%, based on your current level of Stagger. Priest
      Baseline
      Shadow Word: Death - A word of dark binding that inflicts [ 210% 160% of Spell Power ] Shadow damage to the target. If the target is not killed by Shadow Word: Death, the caster takes damage equal to the damage inflicted upon the target. Damage increased by 100% 150% to targets below 20% health. The spell no longer generates Insanity. Shadow
      Void Eruption cast time reduced from 2.5 to 1.5 seconds. The ability now has a 1.5 min cooldown. Mind Flay is now a 4-sec cast (was 3). Assaults the target's mind with Shadow energy, causing [ 148.48% 197.97% of Spell Power ] Shadow damage over 3 4 sec and slowing their movement speed by 50%. Voidform has been given a 90-sec cooldown and increases your damage by 20% for 15 seconds. The "legacy" Insanity-draining effect can still be achieved through the redesigned Legacy of the Void talent. The spell now refreshes the cooldown of Mind Blast and you gain 2 charges while in Voidform. Mind Blast (Rank 2) now reduces the cooldown of Mind Blast by 7.5 seconds (was 7). Devouring Plague - Afflicts the target with a disease that instantly causes 0 [ 150% of Spell Power ] Shadow damage plus an additional 0 [ 300% of Spell Power ] Shadow damage over 12 6 sec. Heals you for 50% of damage dealt. Dark Thoughts is a new baseline proc. For each of your Shadow damage over time effects on the target, your Mind Flay and Mind Sear have a 2% chance to trigger a Dark Thought, stacking up to 5 times. Dark Thought - Increases the number of charges of Mind Blast by 1, Mind Blast can be cast instantly, and can be cast while channelling Mind Flay or Mind Sear. Shadowy Apparitions was redesigned. When you use Mind Blast, Devouring Plague or Void Bolt you also create a shadowy version of yourself that floats towards all targets afflicted by your Vampiric Touch dealing [ 25% of Spell Power ] Shadow damage. Critical strikes will cause two Apparitions to be created. Talents
      Tier 15 Shadowy Insight has been removed. Shadow Word: Void has been removed. Death and Madness is now available on this tier. New Talent: Unfurling Darkness – After casting Vampiric Touch on a target, your next Vampiric Touch is instant cast and deals [ 155% of Spell Power ] Shadow damage immediately. This effect cannot occur more than once every 15 sec. Tier 40 New Talent: Psychic Link – Mind Blast deals 60% of its damage to all targets afflicted by your Vampiric Touch within 40 yards. Tier 45 Lingering Insanity has been removed. Dark Void has been removed. New Talent: Searing Nightmare – Instantly deals [ 90% of Spell Power ] Shadow damage to enemies around the target and afflicts them with Shadow Word: Pain. If the enemy is already afflicted by your Shadow Word: Pain, Searing Nightmare deals double damage. Only usable while channelling Mind Sear. New Talent: Damnation – Instantly afflicts the target with Shadow Word: Pain, Vampiric Touch and Devouring Plague free of cost. The spell has a 45-sec cooldown. Void Torrent – No longer pauses your Insanity while used, but now refreshes the duration of your Shadow damage over time effects on the target while its channeling. Tier 50 Dark Ascension has been removed. Legacy of the Void re-designed – Voidform no longer has a duration. However, during Voidform your Insanity will drain increasingly fast until it reaches 0 and Voidform ends. Void Form increases spell damage by an additional 5%. Surrender to Madness – Now has a 1.5 min cooldown (down from 2 mins). New Talent: Ancient Madness – Entering Voidform increases your critical strike by 30% for 15 sec, reducing by 2% every sec. PvP Talents
      New Talent: Lasting Plague – Increases the duration of your Devouring Plague by 6 sec. Warlock

      The character selection screen is currently a bit buggy on the Beta, and Blizzard is aware of the bug and suggests waiting instead of closing and reopening the game.
      (Source)
      Is anyone else experiencing an inability to interact with their character select screen? It’s completely black (save the UI borders/buttons and the shadowlands logo). I can click on change realm and addons but have no way to select a character and enter the world.
      There is a problem on the database side, which we are investigating and actively working to resolve—apologies for the problems in the meantime. If you are running into this problem, we would advise waiting on the character selection/character loading screen instead of closing and reopening constantly.
      Thanks Zorbrix,
      Is it the same DB error that is causing the DC when you do try to log in, or is that a separate issue?
      Yeah, the DB got into a bad state and that usually manifests as blank character selection screen, issues loading onto a character, and then trouble “saving” your character in-game like when you get loot, turn in a quest, etc.
      We’ve made some initial fixes that seem to be helping, and we’ll continue to monitor and fix. If you were having problems earlier I’d recommend trying again now.
      Here's how the bug looks like.

      Blizzard added global strings in the latest Shadowlands build for new Accessibility options to prevent motion sickness.
      Motion sickness occurs due to a difference between actual and experienced motion. Symptoms commonly include nausea.
      In Shadowlands, you will be able to reduce camera motion by keeping your character centered and adjust shake intensity, as indicated by the datamined global strings below.
      MOTION_SICKNESS_CHARACTER_CENTERED - Keep Character Centered MOTION_SICKNESS_REDUCE_CAMERA_MOTION - Reduce Camera Motion MOTION_SICKNESS_NONE - Allow Dynamic Camera Movement MOTION_SICKNESS_BOTH - Keep Character Centered and Reduce Camera Motion MOTION_SICKNESS_DROPDOWN - Motion Sickness ADJUST_MOTION_SICKNESS_SHAKE - Shake Intensity SHAKE_INTENSITY_NONE - None SHAKE_INTENSITY_REDUCED - Reduced SHAKE_INTENSITY_FULL - Full Related Shadowlands Beta Build 35432 News
