Items

You can find all items added this week here.

Mounts

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.

Siltwing Albatross

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.

  • Vendor: Captain Klarisa // Captain Zentaga (Dubloon Traders)
  • Zone: Tiragarde Sound // Zuldazar
  • Cost: 1,000 Seafarer's Dubloons

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.

      Here's a video covering everything coming in the War Within pre-patch event on July 30th.
      Radiant Echoes, the pre-patch event, will begin on July 30, based on the splash screen. We covered the whole event in great detail, but for those who need a reminder:
      You must complete a short quest that leads you to the Dalaran Chamber where you can teleport to Dustwallow March, Searing Gorge, and Dragonblight. When a Radiant Echo is active, you must port to the zones, slay Lingering Memories and "Remembred" mobs to gather Residual Memories that you can turn in for rewards. The whole event ends in slaying Remembered Onyxia, Remembered Ragnaros, or Remembered Lich King, based on the zone you're in. Rewards include Warbound ilvl 480 gear, mounts, battle pets, bags, and more. You can find the quartermaster either in the Dalaran Chamber or in each of the zones. The event will most likely be available until the TWW Early Access begins on August 22 or when the expansion launches on August 26. For more details check out our detailed preview of Radiant Echoes, but you should also check out MrGM's latest video because the whole event has been bugged on both Beta and the PTR for me and I couldn't get a single Lingering Memory to spawn.

      The War Within pre-patch event will start on July 30th!
      Blizzard hasn't officially announced the release date for the War Within pre-patch, but the latest splash screen suggests that Radiant Echoes, the War Within pre-patch event begins on July 30, 2024.
      This would give players four weeks to join in before the new expansion officially drops on August 26 (or August 22 for Early Access holders).
      We expect the pre-patch to hit live servers on or before July 30!
      Check out the full splash screen in all its glory!
