Glacial Tidestorm

Though she commands a variety of magical powers, Jaina has always been most proficient at summoning powerful elementals of water and ice.

  • Source: Jaina Proudmoore (Mythic)
  • Zone: Battle of Dazar'alor

The mount currently has the same model like the Shaman Class Order Hall mount from Legion. Hopefully, i's just a placeholder.

One of the rarest of birds seen on the islands of the Great Sea, and a prized possession amongst traders, if they can capture it.

I had hoped the mech parrot would be a drop or something purchasable with gold, but when there's a matching pet, it's a store mount. A very beautiful and awesome one, though most likely a store mount regardless.

As for other things, it's interesting to see Ashvale and Sylvanas scheme. Could be interesting.

And the new heirlooms looks interesting. Especially the cloak, depending on whatever or not you're a levelling tank.

      Avid max level Warrior collector, with only 1 shy of 50, DesMephisto, recently managed to collect all the currently available Warrior plate transmogs in the game and was the first to do so ever. We reached out and asked him if he wanted to talk a little more about his journey, and he promptly replied with a Fresh Price of Bel Air quote and got right into it! He details his journey, shares the hardest items to get and, most importantly, he's already on to his next collection: one-handers, as well as a few other projects!
      Make sure to tune in to DesMephisto's stream as he keeps on pushing for a whole lot of challenges and goals and contributing to charity! Now let's see what record he breaks next.

      Legion Legendary items classify as Legacy, and their bonuses are inactive so that they won't work in Shadowlands even at lower levels.
      Blizzard is re-adding some of the Legion Legendary powers in Shadowlands, so it makes sense to completely disable the old Legion Legendaries with the same effects to prevent balancing issues.
      Note that the effects won't work even at lower levels. We looked at Sephuz's Secret, for instance, and the Legendary item requires level 40, but the effect won't work even then.

      The effects you get from Val'anyr, Hammer of Ancient Kings and Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker will still work, even Ashjra'kamas, Shroud of Resolve (Wrathion's Legendary Cloak) effects remain unchanged.

      We further checked out Etheralus, the Eternal Reward (Legendary WoD ring), and the effect still works.

      The same goes for Xing-Ho, Breath of Yu'lon and other cloak effects added in Mists of Pandaria.

      To wrap this up, the change only affects Legion Legendary items, and you should still be able to use other Legendary items from previous expansions during Timewalking.

      Scripe, the Raid Leader of Method and Guild Master of Echo, admitted he was involved in real money trading with the Gallywix boosting community.
      Blizzard recently suspended some members of the Gallywix boosting community that were involved in exchanging gold for real money.
      Today, Scripe confirmed that he decided to buy gold directly from Gallywix instead of buying WoW tokens, and the agreed exchange rate was apparently 50 USD/EUR for 1 million gold, based on the following spreadsheet posted on Reddit.
      Placeholder for tweet 1290652868115128322 In case the above tweet gets deleted.

      For the World First Ny'alotha Race progression when there was no Corruption Vendor, Method needed to buy BoE items with the best Corruption Effects for millions of gold across all servers and transfer them to Tarren Mill.
      The total expenses for BoE items and WoW tokens came to a whopping 128,473,245 gold, and you can find a list of all items the guild purchased here.
      Core members of Method raid team have reformed as Echo and the guild is lead by Scripe.

      SauceISR discovered something strange going on in Quel'thalas on the Shadowlands Beta.
      There is a Void Elf-like shield (skybox?) in one of the areas in Quel'thalas. It currently has no spawns/NPCs, and we do not know what purpose it should fulfill. Maybe it was intended for Void Elves at some point but was later scrapped during development. What do you think? Anyway, it's a cool find! You can check out MrGM's video of the skybox below.
