      LeystTv is back with some more evolution tracking, this time focusing on everyone's favorite Demon Hunter and everyone's second favorite Orc! Well, probably not everyone's but still. We're taking a look at how Illidan and Saurfang's models evolved over the years and, as you can imagine, Mr. Stormrage has a few more to show off.

      Number 7 is particularly interesting, as it was never used and added in Shadowlands. It seems likely it was related to a flashback, possibly connected to Malfurion's quests in the expansion, but we can't be sure. Hopefully everything is still going alright in the Seat of the Pantheon...
      And then there's ex-Warlord Saurfang, the formerly greatest tier 1 Might shoulder spokesmodel ever:
      There was also a joke in the twitter thread about the final Saurfang model missing, the Old Warrior's Soul.
      It's always great to do these little trips down memory lane, while also finding some new models that may not have been so prevalent/noticeable, so thanks to LeystTv for this series!

      Players have been gathering in masses to farm out all the (many) drops the Diablo crossover event goblins are dropping, and it seems there's one drop Blizzard didn't specifically mention in their event overview.
      As spotted by DesMephisto and many others, it seems the treasure part of their name doesn't only refer to all the items and cosmetics they drop, but also gold! 500-1000 or so, in fact (update: it seems the numbers can go a LOT higher than that, with some reporting getting as much as 10,000 gold!)
      The goblins spawn every 30 minutes, alternating between Orgrimmar and Stormwind on the full hour and every 30 minutes in Dragonflight zones. You can grab a Weakaura here to have a timer on when the next spawn is and where here, or check out a spreadsheet of all the upcoming times here.
      Not exactly astronomical numbers, but considering how quickly they die, it might be worth the hassle. Players have been gathering in large numbers, trying to get everything from the mount, pet, bag and all the cosmetics (although the charms have lost some of their appeal since Blizzard disabled them in instanced content).
      And while the low, low framerates when that many people gather up are problematic, others have found a different sort of fun, as faction warfare sometimes ensues!
      Despite some players getting quickly bored with the event, it's still quite a lot of free loot to get, so it's not all bad. What do you think of it all? Too simple and boring or "thanks for the free stuff"?
      If you're looking for their spawn times and locations, you can check out a Weakaura for that here.
