Oh thank god. I'm visually impaired and while everyone has been talking about colour blindness on HTM it was JFM that was driving me to distraction. The blue on slightly lighter blue was almost impossible for me to see.

      Chromie is casually chilling on her hourglass near embassies in Stormwind and Orgrimmar, allowing players to pick an expansion/timeline they would like for leveling from 10 to 50 before heading to Shadowlands.
      New players that have not played through Battle for Azeroth and reached level 120 yet with at least one character won't be eligible for this option and must play Battle for Azeroth by default when Shadowlands goes live.
      Any subsequent characters you create will be able to pick from the following timelines for leveling:
      Kalimdor & Eastern Kingdoms
      Deathwing's emergence from Deepholm altered Azeroth's landscape forever and weakened the veil between this world and the elemental planes. Deathwing won't know what hit him!

      Outland
      The Dark Portal has once again opened, and the demons of the Burning Legion are advancing on Azeroth! Make sure their plans have a rather... Azerothian-sized setback!

      Northrend
      The tragic fall of Arthas Menethil and his ascension to the frozen throne as the Lich King is a moment in history that has permanently left a lingering scar across all Azeroth. Stopping the Lich King would really put the Scourge's plan on ice.

      Pandaria
      An ancient and mysterious land shrouded in fog for over ten thousand years appeared due to the events of the Cataclysm, and its people could really use the help of an adventurer like you. Going back to Pandaria is a great way to see that life is worth savoring!

      Draenor
      The orcish clans had a very unfortunate fate in our timeline, but the meddling of Garrosh Hellscream brought forth a force that threatened the very existence of all life on Azeroth--the Iron Horde. Travel back through time and meet the orcish clans and the draenei for the first time... again!

      Broken Isles
      The Burning Legion sought to conquer Azeroth and enslave its world soul and now that the Tomb of Sargeras has been reopened, they advance on our world. History will remember that you stood between the Legion and annihilation!

      You can return and talk to Chromie to select a different timeline whenever you feel like it.
      There is also a whirly screen visual and clock ticking sound when you select a timeline.


      Chromie also has some cool replies to go with your expansion choice:
      Vanilla/Cataclysm: "Who would have thought someone named Deathwing would bring about so much destruction?" Outland: "You look quite prepared!" Northrend: "Do not exercise restraint when showing your great power to the Scourge." Pandaria: "Whatever you do, do not get between a Pandaren and their brew. It'll be unbearably painful if you do!" Draenor: "If a scary orc offers you something to drink, you probably want to say no." Broken Isles: "If you find a powerful weapon, just make sure it isn't corrupted by the Burning Legion or Old Gods, okay?" Note that timeline icons are currently messed up on Alpha.
      Chromie Time allows you to select an expansion/timeline for leveling in Shadowlands.

      Blizzard just posted a preview of new Blood and Void Elf customization options that will soon become available on Shadowlands Alpha. These include new eye and skin color options. Both races will have the option to select blue eyes.

      In an upcoming Shadowlands Alpha build, Blood Elves and Void Elves will be receiving some new customization options that some of you may be interested in?. We wanted to give you an early look at a few of these new options available to the two races, with the first being several shades of blue eyes to choose from.
      Void Elf blue eyes on top, Blood Elf blue eyes on bottom


      Additionally, Blood Elves will have the option to choose from a variety of new skin colors and Void Elves will inherit the skin color options that are available to Blood Elves. Here’s a glimpse of the potential characters that you can create with some of the new options.
      New Blood Elf Customization Options


      New Void Elf Customization Options


      This is just a sneak peek some of the many customization options coming to your characters in Shadowlands! We look forward to seeing all the creations that you come up with in the future.

      Blizzard encountered some issues this week, so the planned Gushing Wound nerf did not go live after maintenance. It's unfair to nerf the Corruption Effect with this week's competitive PvP underway, so they plan on reducing the damage done by Gushing Wound next week on June 2 (June 3 in EU).
      (Source)
      We encountered issues making the previously-announced adjustment to the Gushing Wound Corruption Effect. While we believe we have it sorted now, this week’s competitive PvP is underway and it’s unfair to make changes like this in the middle of events.
      Our plan is to now reduce the damage done by Gushing Wound with weekly maintenance next week, on June 2 in this region.
    • By Stan
      Blizzard announced that the Gushing Wound Corruption Effect would get nerfed by 35% with this week's maintenance in all regions, but as for now, the nerf is still not active on live servers.
      The Gushing Wound effect has just one rank and Blizzard left the Corruption Effect untouched until now because it was hard to acquire.
      Now that MOTHER is selling all Corruption Effects on rotation, Blizzard predicts large stacking of Gushing Wound that could end up being even more powerful than Infinite Stars, so they decided to nerf the effect by 35%.
      The Corruption Effect was not on sale yet and you can find a list of all Corruption Effects currently sold by MOTHER here.
      (Source)
      We’re working on a hotfix that will reduce the damage done by the Gushing Wound Corruption Effect by 35%. We expect to make this change with maintenance in each region next week, starting on May 26.
      While we tend to only make changes like this in regular balance patch intervals, Gushing Wound is currently the most efficient of all Corruption Effects. When making changes to Corruption Effects, we previously decided to leave it as-is, because there is only one rank available and Gushing Wound is a rare and relatively difficult Corruption to acquire. However, with this week’s updates that make Corruption Effects available from MOTHER, we expect that stacking large amounts of Gushing Wound will be even more efficient than Infinite Stars, which has explicit downsides when multiple targets are present.
      We’ll have the change outlined in our Hotfixes Update soon after it goes live next week.
      If the nerf goes live later tonight, we will cover it in the hotfix update.
