Frostwhelp's Indignation

This seems to be an DK trait i think, as Pillars of Frost is a Frost Dk's ability.

But im very excited to see the new traits and maybe more that are coming 🙂

I could actually see that having some use especially in higher key mythic plus. Extra HP is always welcome and more frequent recovery is useful. It's kinda niche but that's what we've been asking for isn't it? Interesting abilities.

You´re right. But the community will obviously complain that this is useless mostly beacuse its doesnt increase your Sims or looks usable while it totally could be in high keys or Mythic Raids. Blizzard is trying to give us what we want but we complain all the time 😞

Righteous Conviction

  • Your Light of the Protector heals for 203 additional healing, and is always increased by 200% during Avenging Wrath.


Was excited till I read this.   Why do prot paladins always become the generic average and get the generic abilities? 😕

Also our "emergency heal" being on the gcd still is laughably bad

The new model looks amazing and very modern animation-wise, but I feel like Lor'themar looks older and more humanish now. Gief back our sexy leader!

I like the way they are aging models.  The aging on Hellscream during the Mag'har scenario was a welcome sight (not to see him go, but to see the passage of time, which feels like it gets forgotten at times.)

Anduin growing up falls into that category, IMO.

      Stag & Sleigh Model Updates

      Celestalon clarified in a series of tweets how the secret The Hivemind mount works.
      The multi-person capability is a special perk for the Hivemind group (the 5 people you last completed it with) and the final ritual is what establishes the link. Each player in a said group increases the mount's speed by 10% (Joined Hivemind). If you completed the final puzzle with a random group, you will need to complete it again with a different group for the speed bonus.

    • By Starym
      Well, that didn't take long! It seems you can't keep the WoW secret finders in the dark for too long, as they've already broken through and managed to obtain the mount! Warcraft Secrets and the secrets discord were hard at work the past few days and today finally bore fruit as they pushed through all the colored crystal monocles and found their way to the Court of Stars.

      From there it's a whole lot of petting kittens and purring, followed by phase-shifting platforms to navigate, and then the goal itself:

      While the very end of the guide hasn't been updated yet, it will be very soon so head on over to Warcraft Secrets and check out the full guide, and you might be riding this crazy thing soon as well.
      And, of course, congratulations to everyone that helped out in the endeavor, it was an amazing performance by all involved!
