Shrine Raid 2H Staff

We also found a two-handed Staff that has been added to the game recently. It's the only weapon in the game files so far related to the Shrine raid in Battle for Azeroth.

The whole armor/weapon design in this expansion is just "pf & meh". Only different colors between difficultys is such disappointing.

The swords look nice (no doubt they'll be too bloody long on my characters, I swear some of them are longer than my mage! That's not how 1H swords are suppose to work Blizzard!) but the rest are very very meh. I'm honestly not that impressed with the raid armour and weapons this expansion. Some of the questing and dungeon stuff was pretty cool, but the raids? Bleh.

Slight tangent but for the love of all that is holy, can we please get more tunic transmog Blizzard? Just have the robes just give both! I'm sick to death of bloody robes!

That's what I was gonna say.  The whole Aztec aesthetic is just not for me.

Isn't that basically the havoc hidden appearance glaive without the fel glow?

The staff is basically the Scepter of Sargeras' modified Balance of Power skin, too. Plus one of the maces is a sawed-off version of the same Light's Wrath skin.
And then you have an axe that is a Butcher's Cleaver from WoD and the fists I can't quite place where I saw before.

yeah, maybe, if you ignore the fact, that it looks totally different. There is no skull in the middle anymore, no leather pieces hanging on it. Just because the main blade is made of bones, its not immediately the same... And what about the people that dont like the glow effect. This one will be a good alternative i would say (bone theme, but totally different in flair).

yeah, maybe, if you ignore the fact, that it looks totally different. The are no chains anymore, the whole staff is one long-ass bone, there are leather pieces that hold everything together. Truly a shamanistic, voodo, dreamcatcher, bonemagic, bwomsamdi style, unlike the staff of sargeras.

What about "never seen before" ...? Dont want to compare them to the low resolution bear paws that we have in the game already? Those are (i guess) some ogerfists, that you put on your own hands, and bind bones as claws on top... like where would you have seen something like that before? xD i think they are gorgeous, and truly unique.

 

It seems to me, that the community is way to hard to please. All of those skins look awesome, and have a distinct style, like the bwomsamdi theme. Me personally i will never use them on my characters because i dont use "savage" themes in general, but i cant deny, that they look cool.

Where’s the bows or guns? 😞

Still missing. It will be added in future 8.1 builds.

I really like the 1H Axe (great shammy transmog), the second 1H Mace and Swords. I'm personally not a huge fan of Staves this expansion.

Think I will just stick with the Legion Warglaive appearances for transmog....too bad there is not a Bow, Gun, or Crossbow for my Hunter to choose from yet.

Im torn on the 1H axes.  The blade is really cool, but the rest of it could have used a different look.

      Limit's Guild Master @maximumwow talked about the guild's potential streaming of the race in the future and went into a pretty in-depth explanation of the potential consequences for the race and how it could impact them specifically, bringing it all back to the Method/Serenity split. It's a very interesting and honest clip that brings into question whether the guild will actually stream (as it was previously generally stated that they would) and absolutely worth a watch.

      He also went on to clarify a tricky/easily misunderstood thing he said in the above clip:
      While we now have a lot of the top guilds streaming their progress, Limit's inclusion would be a big one as they're fairly certain to remain on the top of the US/OC part of the race, and since there's a whole day/16 hours in which no one else has access to the raid it's definitely be a popular addition, but as mentioned above could impact the race.

      Feathers is a new battle pet that you can get by completing a short questline in Patch 8.1.5 that takes place in Tanaris.
      Mechanical Feather was added in Patch 8.1 and we also datamined a matching Mechanical Parrot mount in Patch 8.1 Build 28294 that's still not available to this day, maybe it's being saved for Mechagon and Patch 8.2?

      Animations

      Feathers Questline
      A new questline was added in Patch 8.1.5 that rewards a battle pet called Feathers. Both factions will be able to get the pet. We completed the questline on the Horde side, where Jastor Gallywix sends you to kill a Goblin located in Tanaris.
      Whatever Happened to Grizzek Fizzwrench?
      Gallywix wants you to locate and kill Grizzek Fizzwrench in Tanaris.
      Gazlowe appears right after you leave the ship and tries to strike another deal with you.
      After investigating Waterspring Field in Tanaris, you come across a Mechanical Parrot that's broken.
      Some Reassembly Required
      Collect 100 Mechanical Parts from Venture Co. scavengers to fix Feathers.
      Re-Parrot
      Now that Feathers is fixed, it's time to debug his recall program to trace Grizzek Fizzwrench.
      When you begin debugging, Feathers will go haywire. You'll gain access to three abilities that need to be pressed in exact order, based on the text that appears on screen.
      The debugging process should finish.
      Return to the Nest
      Activate the recall subroutine to find Fizzwrench.
      He's Dead, Jastor
      Feathers will lead yu to Grizzek Fizzwrench and Saffy. Now, you're asked to tell Jastor Gallywix that he's long dead and you can keep the bird.
      Return to Zandalar Harbor and speak to Gallywix.
      Now talk to Gazlowe to claim your pet!
      Mechanical Feather
      “Thought to be lost in a massive explosion, the smartest of engineers were able to rebuild Feathers into a magnificent mechanical creation.”

      Rextroy is back with some more interesting videos and it seems he's starting a new series where he pits 40 of one class against 40 of another, presumably to go with BfA's conflict theme. Apparently both fights had a third, unforeseen adversary in the form of lag, but they ended up being a lot of fun nonetheless, with the lag actually adding a bit of tension to the proceedings, as abilities just erupt in waves.
      First off we have a Hero class face-off to mirror Arthas and Illidan's fight from Frozen Throne:
       
      And then it's on to Light vs. Death as Paladins take on the Lich King's elite:
       
      There's also an added bonus, as Rextroy also put together a weird expedition to Northrend, composed entirely of low level recruits to see if they could make it through the ghoul and undead infested Bombardment area in Icecrown. Why? Why not!
       
      It's always great to see these kinds of events, reminding us that there's always something to do in Azeroth, even if you're not too fond of the current content. MMOs are usually at their best when players take the reins and find their own fun, so thanks go out to Rextroy for these types of events and we hope to see more like it soon.
      If you know any interesting events like this, post your favorites below!

      Today's hotfixes are mostly just the PvP mana regen tuning from yesterday, but we also have some more Battle of Dazar'alor changes, this time for Heroic difficulty High Tinker and Rastakhan.
      February 14 (source)
      Dungeons and Raids
      Battle of Dazar’alor High Tinker Mekkatorque Wind Up now grants 10% Haste and Movement Speed in Heroic difficulty (was 20%). Boss health lowered by 5% in Heroic difficulty. King Rastakhan Seal of Purification, Scorching Detonation, and Withering Burst should no longer hit pets. Uldir Taloc Orbs of Harmony will now respawn when the Taloc encounter resets. Player versus Player
      Restoration Druid mana regeneration is now reduced by 55% in PvP. Holy Priest, Holy Paladin, Restoration Shaman, and Mistweaver Monk mana regeneration is now reduced by 50% in PvP. Discipline Priest mana regeneration is now reduced by 45% in PvP. Balance Druid, Feral Druid, and Elemental Shaman mana regeneration is reduced by 35% in PvP. Developers’ notes: We’ve taken a careful look at healer mana during longer PvP engagements in both Arenas and battlegrounds, and the changes above are intended to address several concerns. In PvP, we want mana to feel like a more critical resource, and we want mana efficiency to be an important part of PvP healing. At the beginning of Battle for Azeroth, mana regeneration from all healer specs was reduced by 15-30% (depending on the class), and after reviewing the current state of the game, we feel like further reductions are necessary to both healer specs and a few hybrid specs. Druid
      Restoration Nourish (PvP Talent) mana cost increased by 30% Rogue
      Assassination Neurotoxin now increases the cooldown of affected spells by 1 sec, down from 3 sec. Neurotoxin now has a 45 second cooldown, up from 25 sec. Neurotoxin now has a 3 sec duration, down from 10 sec. Developers note: Unfortunately, we are unable to fix a number of technical issues with this spell at this time. We’re working on a fix for it that we hope to include in 8.1.5. Previous hotfixes.
