Mimiron in Ulduar is somehow involved in the quest chain. Here are some spells related to Hati that we've datamined.

Mages will be able to modify the appearance of Arcane Brilliance Arcane Brilliance to that of Dalaran. The glyph is very similar to Tome of Dalaran Brilliance Tome of Dalaran Brilliance.

This spell is related to the Tailoring Tools of the Trade items in Patch 8.1.5.

      Tanks are getting a lot of focus in Shadowlands with the increased Mythic+ focus, and it's only going to get more intense with the next pach, so we rounded up some funny stories, depressing interactions, memes and similar. Here's a grab-bag of tanking experiences from many players.
      While all tanks are always needed, things change around the +15 mark, as it's not just DPS that have this particular experience, and if you're one of the least popular/worst specs...
      Then there's this type of terrible, which hasn't really changed that much since, well, forever, as there will always be assholes out there, but there really do seem to be more and more of them these days, especially in Mythic+...

      Source: ChoGallMeta.
      And even if you do well, it's never enough for some people:
      But, sometimes it's quite a different feeling, as however terrible players might be to you, you're still a tank damn it!
      And there are some perfect moments that can only come from tanking, including this one titled "My greatest M+ tanking Achievement...":

      If the group gets really annoying, you can always have the last word too:

      And finally, if you get REALLY tired of all the DPS not interrupting, the healer selfishly trying to keep those idiots that stand in every mechanic under the sun alive instead of keeping you above 80%, or people dare to question your route, you can always just go with your own kind!

      Darkmoon Faire has returned for a week. Make sure to use the 10% reputation & experience buff, and don't forget about Profession skill-up quests for easy 5 points!
      10% WHEE! Buff
      The buff increases Experience and Reputation gains by 10% for 1 hour, and it is recommended to turn in weekly quests only after you have the buff for extra reputation. You can farm reputation beyond Exalted for Reputation Paragon rewards.
      Profession Quests
      If you're missing some crucial skill points to max out your Professions, do not forget that the Darkmoon Faire Profession quests can grant you 5 skill points! You no longer need to have 75 skill points for the quests either, so head over to Darkmoon Island to get them.
      Inky Black Potions
      Don't forget to stock up on Inky Black Potion to enjoy dark mode in Shadowlands and other regions! Here's a showcase of Bastion with the potion. Image courtesy of Reddit user nasKo_zomboid.

      Head over to our Darkmoon Faire guide to learn more about the event!

      As 9.0.5 approaches, we wanted to take a look at just how many players were playing which specs in Mythic Castle Nathria before the patch changes hit. We made some charts for the Warcraft Logs numbers and will be doing them by role, starting with DPS. All of the stats below are based on the past 2 weeks of raids. 
      While we know what the biggest DPS performers are from our weekly check-ins with the Nathria logs, the actual number of players in the raid by spec are close, but look a little different. The most interesting/jarring fact of all on the DPS side is that 4 specs take up more than half of the entire Mythic population:

      Those last few stripes that are so tiny are Frost DK, Assassination, Demonology, Arcane and, of course Survival at the very end. Source: Warcraft Logs.
      The fact that Marksmanship, Fire, Balance and Affliction take up 51% of all DPS specs in Mythic Nathria is a little mind-boggling, especially since performance-wise, those specs don't really stand out that much (aside from Balance, who has reigned supreme for a long time now). Shadow is a particularly interesting case, as it's been at or near the top of the DPS rankings for a long time (it's currently in 3rd spot), and yet its numbers here are pretty low.
      Now let's take a look at the tanks and healers, as their numbers are even more distorted, with some extremely dominant specs. For tanks, Vengenance's domination won't surprise anyone, as it's been the go-to spec for basically all of Shadowlands:

      Source: Warcraft Logs.
      In comparison to the DPS role values, 2 tank specs hold 62% of the population, and 3 come up to 74%.
      We see an extremely similar situation for healers, with 2 specs holding 55%, with the bottom two barely breaking 15%.

      Source: Warcraft Logs.
      The biggest takeaway here is in the DPS department, where the numbers don't necessarily conform to the DPS rankings, although the specs that have been generally in the top for a longer time are more represented, as you'd imagine. The dominance of so few specs, however, is a little staggering, especially when looking at tanks and healers.  We can only hope 9.0.5 and its later hotfixes can address these specs, so perhaps some significant buffs would help there.

      The Mythic+ premade group finder gets a lot of use, and the more frustrated players get with it, the weirder the descriptions of the groups get, so we're taking a look at the funny, creepy and one truly perfect one.
      The first one we're taking a look at is your basic reverse psychology move, with some interesting math on top:

      Then we're on to something similar, although a little weirder, with this (hopefully) satiric post:

      Found by: Dasquare22.
      And now here's something... new, really weird and pretty creepy (with the added bonus of many boost group reports in the chat log, which has become a default part of the premade group finding experience):

      Found by: Galind_Halithel.
      This next one isn't really about the description, but two of the groups on the list, and the piece is titled "Ships in the night":

      Found by: AKeeneyedguy.
      But we saved the best for last, with probably the most accurate description and the most successful way to find good group members:

      Found by: sentenza63.

      You've probably/definitely run across some similarly hilarious or weird ones in your time with the group finder, so post them below if you remember what they said!
