Update: it seems the tease IS gaming related, just not WoW! Apparently the text on the script is de-blurrable and is related to Mass Effect. You can read more about it over on PC Gamer.
This is one of those "obviously not what we hope it is, but maaaybe?" things as Henry Cavill, who was part of many discussions about who should play Arthas last year, just posted an interesting image to his Instagram, as spotted by Warchief_Hammerhands.
This is 99.99% Witcher-related, and the caption is just a tease (whether it's actually aimed at the Arthas hype or not), but we have seen the actor actually talk about the role of the Lich King previously. In several Instagram replies to one of the many fan photoshops of himself as Arthas, Cavill did seem to show some solid interest in the role, and it all started with an emoji response to this post:
And here's the complex response, with Blizzard getting tagged:
He then engaged in some fan interaction, starting with a nod at the previous rumors of him being the next Bond:
And great response to a fair warning related to Cavill's missing his Man of Steel casting call because he was playing WoW:
Many have actually commented that Cavill might be a bit too old for Arthas at this point, but considering the events on 9.1 and where the story might be going, who's to say an older, post-Maw Arthas isn't in the cards? It seems like a perfect stunt commercial type thing to tease a potentially bigger project like a TV series or even movie. After all, Metzen himself approves of Cavill in the role!
But, getting back down to earth, this seems much more Witcher-related, with Season 2 of the show still being shot, as Covid slowed things down. The Instagram post is probably just a tease that they're still shooting the show (possibly the finale, as the script seems to be relevant) and we're just getting too excited. But why shouldn't we get excited? A Warcaft TV show is just too good of a fit, even an animated one, so any movement we can stir up there can only be positive!
You'd think the Arms Warrior hidden artifact appearance wouldn't really be all that relevant anymore, but since we can now transmog it in any spec, Strom'kar, the Warbreaker is getting very Axe-y is definitely worth mentioning. Warriors in the US who don't yet have it should be pretty happy today as the hidden Arcanite Bladebreaker appearance is available, so hurry! Head to your Legion Order Hall and grab the Secrets of the Axes quest from Master Smith Helgar (he's over by the Forge of Odyn) and he will give you a quest where you must duel Saurfang to earn the hidden appearance. Shadowlands brought the ability to transmog weapons in other specs to the artifacts, so this is even more worth doing, and thanks to redditor CrebTheBerc for noticing! The quest is usually up for around a day.
You'll need to have the Arms artifact unlocked, and it might actually be worth rolling a new Warrior and going through the (skippable) Legion intro to find out if the quest is available to lower level chars, as the quest comes around very infrequently.
Some more hotfixes this time around, with some minor Nathria and Black Temple fixes and the Renown illusion is now working as well!

We're back to Nathria after all the BlizzConline action, where we're taking another look at the DPS standings and we have one huge change, as Frost Mages have soared into the top, landing in 4th/5th place after being near the bottom of the pile last week! We'll also be taking a look at the rise of Frost and the stagnation of the already not so hot Havoc down at the lower end of things, as Dutchmagoz and Wordup talks about their situations.
