Built by the original inhabitants of Drustvar, the Hailstone Construct was built to defend these lands from any invaders. However, years of dormancy have left it addled, and it now sees all residents as threats, vowing to destroy them all.
The Hailstone Construct uses a variety of attacks to chill its enemies, from inflicting Frost damage in its melee swings to massive AOE attacks that both slow and freeze anyone hit.

Burning Crusade Timewalking (November 13th - November 20th)
Timewalking dungeons drop ilvl 335 items, so they're a great for gearing up your alts. On top of that, Reins of the Infinite Timereaver has a chance to drop from all Timewalking bosses as personal loot. The Timewalking vendor Cupri can be found in Shattrath City. Players can also queue up for Black Temple Timewalking for gear, Raiding with Leashes III: Drinkin' From the Sunwell pets, and Demon Hunters can acquire moggable Warglaives of Azzinoth.
Head to Outland to face Illidan and his cohorts once more in The Black Temple!
The Black Temple raid is available throughout the Burning Crusade Timewalking event. The difficulty is set to Normal and, like any Normal-level raid, will not be available through Raid Finder. To take on this challenge, you’ll need to get your guild or a group of friends together, or head to Group Finder > Premade Groups. The raid scales for your group size (between 10 — 30 players) and your level and gear will be scaled back to match the raid’s challenges.
Want to relive the time you first defeated Teron Gorefiend? Face (face, face) the Reliquary of Souls once more? Witness the showdown between Maiev and Illidan before the final fight? Now’s your chance. Inside you can earn transmog sets, the pets you need for Raiding With Leashes III, a Music Roll: The Burning Legion, and gear drops. And for Demon Hunters, there’s the enticing possibility of obtaining the legendary Warglaives of Azzinoth. Are you, this time, prepared?
DUNGEONS IN THE BURNING CRUSADE TIMEWALKING
All week, open Group Finder (default hotkey: i) and then select Dungeon Finder and Timewalking in the Type dropdown. When you hit ‘Find Group’, you’ll be matched up with other players and sent to one of the following Heroic dungeons:
The Arcatraz The Black Morass Magister’s Terrace Mana-Tombs Shattered Halls The Slave Pens Your character and items will be scaled down to a power level fitting for the challenge at hand, but bosses will yield loot appropriate for your natural level. Timewalking dungeons also have a chance to drop items that usually drop when you run them on Heroic, and you’ll earn reputation with a faction that is interested in the dungeon. For example, when you Timewalk through The Slave Pens, you’ll earn reputation with the Cenarion Expedition, which could open access to purchasing the Cenarion War Hippogryph mount.
Look for the following all week long:
Chronicler Shoopa in Zuldazar or Chronicler Toopa in Boralus has a quest for you has a quest for you. Or, if you forget to pick it up there, you can start it from within the Adventure Journal. Quest requirement: Complete 5 Timewalking dungeons. Rewards: Artifact Power and one loot box containing a piece of gear from Normal difficulty Uldir. EVERY WEEK

Feeling old yet? Wrath of the Lich King was released 10 years ago!
On 13th November 2008, Blizzard released World of Warcraft's third expansion Wrath of the Lich King. Many players still consider Wrath WoW's best expansion to date. Death Knights were first introduced to the game and the level cap was increased to 80.
The first major content patch of the expansion was Patch 3.1: Secrets of Ulduar released on April 14, 2009. Storm Peaks have been updated with Ulduar, a new raid where players had to confront Yogg-Saron. Notable loot includes Mimiron's Head. Blizzard also added the Argent Tournament to Icecrown in this patch.
Call of the Crusade went live on August 4, 2009 and the patch came with Isle of Conquest, the Crusaders' Coliseum dungeon, and Trial of the Crusader raid. Story of the Argent tournament continued and only the boldest of adventurers could prove they were worthy and ready to end Lich King's reign.
At the Wrathgate, both factions confronted the Lich King, but Varimathras' betrayal caused Grand Apothecary Putress to unleash plague on both armies, resulting in massive casualties for both factions. Bolvar Fordragon and Dranosh Saurfang were killed and recovered by the Lich King.
The final major content patch of the expansion went live on December 8, 2009. It was finally time to put the Lich King to rest and Blizzard added Icecrown Citadel along with three dungeons (Halls of Reflection, Pit of Saron, the Forge of Souls ) to the game. Notable loot includes Invincible's Reins.

In the latest Method interview, we learned how the new Reaping affix will play out in Tides of Vengeance.
In Battle for Azeroth, Blizzard brought Seasons to Mythic+. Infested was the first Seasonal affix inspired by G'huun. The affix will be soon replaced with Reaping in Season 2 that will start early next year.
Affix Description Reaping Non-boss enemies are empowered by Bwonsamdi and periodically seek vengeance from beyond the grave. How Reaping Works
Reaping was inspired by Battle of Dazar'alor and Bwonsamdi. Every 20% on the Enemy forces bar, Bwonsamdi will resurrect spirits of all the trash creatures you had killed up to that point and they will charge at you no matter where you're at. This happens a total of 5 times per dungeon. You will be in full control of when this occurs, so planning/adjusting your pulls will be crucial. One of the ideas they had with this was to change how you approach the dungeon. Blood Moon will rise whenever Bwonsamdi calls on his powers and there's also something cool that might happen after you lose the timer. You can also check out the video below, where the devs talk about the affix and upcoming changes to Necrotic.
MMO-Champion sat down with Alex Afrasiabi and Patrick Dawson to discuss Mythic raiding, the War Campaign, multithreading support in Patch 8.1, and more.
Click here to check out the full interview.
Blizzard wanted to preserve Mythic raiding, but also wanted cross-realm Mythic to happen, which is why they introduced Hall of Fame achievements. Some racials were overpowered and that caused pro players to gravitate toward playing Horde. You can find more details about this in the latest Forbes' interview with Game Director Ion Hazzikostas. They didn't want to give fresh level 120 players the opportunity to farm Warfronts gear, so they hotfixed a minimum item level requirement in. Alex is interested in using Warfronts to tell the story. War Campaign in BfA is shorter than the Legion campaign, because they plan to add more chapters in each patch. Blizzard has an internal Mythic+ team that runs dungeons and submits feedback. Multithreading is finally coming to World of Warcraft in Tides of Vengeance! Internally, they've seen improvements of up to 50% in frame rate and your gameplay experience will depend on your hardware and software configuration.
