The small adds in phase 1 are untankable - we alleviated this issue by stacking when Eye Beam was not happening and loosely spreading when it was.  We cycled through a Capacitor Totem, Shadowfury, and then whatever leftover stuns we had.  Having a DK here to grip all of the adds together would be invaluable (we did not have one).  A Monk's Ring of Peace would also be incredible (also did not have this).  This was pretty much all that phase 1 was other than not dying to Ragnaros circles v2.0.  If you can, stack the adds on the boss for cleave damage.  This speeds the fight up a good bit which you definitely want.

Phase 2 adds are MUCH worse as they are incredibly spread out.  If you have a smaller group like we did (13), we had to hard CC the back two adds and nuke the closest one as the Void Beam ability they use hits VERY hard.  You basically do not want any of those casts going off.  Interrupting them also does nothing to alter their placement as they begin casting as soon as they finish a cast or are interrupted.  Because of this, a DK grip would be invaluable to group them up and cleave.  Also, do NOT interrupt until the cast is nearly finished to be able to have interrupt cooldowns reset before needed again.  Phase 2 is pretty much handling these adds to perfection while running your clouds outside of the raid group.  It will feel like you're not dealing a lot of damage to the boss with your constant switches, but you should be ok.  We actually found it the most beneficial to use Bloodlust in Phase 2 as Phase 3 went super fast with the buffs.  This is clearly group dependent.

Phase 3 is really about spreading out to intercept the orbs.  If you do this, you're golden.  The 100% damage increase is ENORMOUS with synced with cooldowns.  If you miss an orb, the raid will suffer immensely.

      We already talked about the weird ways the Kyrian carry specific player forms, but it seems most Shadowlands flying creatures don't have a lot of respect for the things they carry...
      The Venthyr's General Draven has two very specific carrying styles himself, first the "hold them this way in case you need to smash something using their body":

      Source.
      And the "it's just Theotar, who cares how I carry him" style:

      Source.
      We didn't even mention the third style he uses, as it's currently involved in a lawsuit with the boomkin in question:

      Source.
      But it's not just the Kyrian and Venthyr that got in on the weird carry action, as Ardenweald's denizens have their own ideas on optimal transport, and they're... well:

      Source.
      And finally, the kings of in-flight comfort, the Kyrian have discovered a way to get both you and your mount on board... although the technology isn't quite foolproof yet:

      The title maybe doesn't sound like a big deal, but it's a lot worse than it sounds. You may have seen the recent crazy turn speeds that created flightless brutosaur helicopters and similar, but now that particular console command is being used offensively.
      After sharing the console turn speed command earlier in a fun clip, Automaton17 came back with a followup as they noticed the command being used in PvP to mess with players' controls. While mind controlling a player you can actually adjust this variable (and only this one) to completely mess with their turn speed, making it either crazy high (so that any press makes them spin wildly), or making it 0 (so that they can't move with the keyboard at all). Now I can hear everyone yelling about keyboard turners already, but most people keep their default bindings for movement keys and occasionally presa their A and D keys, so it's still a pretty big deal.
      This sounds like one of those no-brainer suspension/ban causes, so I really wouldn't suggest trying this, at least not outside of a friendly duel to check out how it works and have some fun. This is quite literally editing someone else's WoW configuration while having control over their character, and while it may sound fun and entertaining, and "just" affects keyboard turners, there are still many new players that won't even understand what's happening nor how to fix it, and plenty of veterans might be confused too:
      Here's the original clip of the turn speed variable changes, we couldn't find any of it in PvP action:
      The full thread goes into why this one particular variable is editable while others aren't, as well as tips on how to fix it (a /reload or logout works or you can just use the /console turnspeed 180 command to reset it to default and If it keeps happening you can also just rebind your turn keys to strafe instead).
      Hopefully Blizzard can address this soon, as having other players edit any of your settings is just wrong, no matter how silly it looks.

      We have a really easy way to get any missing Legendary memories without having to do any of the related activities, but it may take a long time to get to it if you haven't been keeping up with your Covenant.
      You may have/most likely did miss this little detail in your Renown quartermaster's inventory, as he sells the Chronicle of Lost Memories item which will unlock a random not-already-learned legendary memory. This includes memories from raids, PvP, Torghast and any other activity or even reputation vendor (but you'll still need rep for that last one)!

      Source.
      The catch is you need to have reinforced 4 permanent locations with your Covenant Anima Conductor. This requires you to have at least the rank 2 Conducor AND to have basically reinforced a location most days since Shadowlands launched, since you'll need 40 reinforced locations to get the 4 permanent ones needed, and each takes 24 hours to reset. For some players this means it'll take a while to gain access to this, but for some it'll be immediately available.

      You'll need the Grateful Offering currency you get from the reinforced anima location activities to buy a memory, but you should have plenty if you've done them at all (I have 100+ and haven't been doing a lot of them).
      As mentioned, an important caveat is that reputation-based memories still require you to have the needed rep in order to use them, so this unfortunately isn't a method of skipping certain grinds (like the Covenant faction reps, Avowed one etc).
      This was spotted by dack-janiels and might push you to continue your reinforcement efforts, but if you haven't been doing it much it's going to take you a long while to catch up.

      Here's an addon that lets you loot faster in WoW.
      It's called Speedy AutoLoot, and it makes you loot all items as fast as possible. It hides the default loot window for a seamless gameplay experience. We tested the addon out, and the speed difference is really noticeable, especially in Torghast, where you need to constantly loot Phantasma from mobs.

      You can type /sal in the game to toggle settings.
      Speedy AutoLoot Features
      The addon works with TSM Destroy. A command allows you to enable auto-loot on all characters. You can set a sound that plays when your inventory is full with the /sal set (SoundID) command, so if you do /sal set (3738125), the addon will play the sound files associated with "BUTTONS". You can pick SoundID (3571677) for "Mrraaazz!". You can download Speedy AutoLoot on CurseForge.
