The Lost Codex interviewed Steve Danuser and Morgan Day, and we learned more about the option to transmog each shoulder separately.
Morgan Day revealed that the feature is probably still on the table, but some shoulders were not designed to be used separately, and they want to avoid clipping, which is probably the reason why Blizzard scrapped the option for Shadowlands launch.
Early in the Beta, we saw that there was potential for individual shoulder transmog pieces, which sparked a lot of interest in the community, but it never made it to live in 9.0. Is that still on the table? Can you comment on individual shoulder transmogging and if it's coming or not?
Morgan Day: This is a great question. I will follow up on this one because I know it was something that we were aiming to get done for Shadowlands launch, but that one in particular we knew might have run into some technical issues.
There's a lot of history to draw from without transmog sets, and there were some very asymmetrical shoulder pieces that were crafted with never thinking towards having them transmogged individually.
I think it is a really cool feature that we know players are excited about, and I imagine we're still doing our best to make progress towards that.
You can watch the whole interview below. The video starts playing at where they talk about transmogging each shoulder separately.
This is one of those "obviously not what we hope it is, but maaaybe?" things as Henry Cavill, who was part of many discussions about who should play Arthas last year, just posted an interesting image to his Instagram, as spotted by Warchief_Hammerhands.
This is 99.99% Witcher-related, and the caption is just a tease (whether it's actually aimed at the Arthas hype or not), but we have seen the actor actually talk about the role of the Lich King previously. In several Instagram replies to one of the many fan photoshops of himself as Arthas, Cavill did seem to show some solid interest in the role, and it all started with an emoji response to this post:
And here's the complex response, with Blizzard getting tagged:
He then engaged in some fan interaction, starting with a nod at the previous rumors of him being the next Bond:
And great response to a fair warning related to Cavill's missing his Man of Steel casting call because he was playing WoW:
Many have actually commented that Cavill might be a bit too old for Arthas at this point, but considering the events on 9.1 and where the story might be going, who's to say an older, post-Maw Arthas isn't in the cards? It seems like a perfect stunt commercial type thing to tease a potentially bigger project like a TV series or even movie. After all, Metzen himself approves of Cavill in the role!
But, getting back down to earth, this seems much more Witcher-related, with Season 2 of the show still being shot, as Covid slowed things down. The Instagram post is probably just a tease that they're still shooting the show (possibly the finale, as the script seems to be relevant) and we're just getting too excited. But why shouldn't we get excited? A Warcaft TV show is just too good of a fit, even an animated one, so any movement we can stir up there can only be positive!
We're sure you're all Cavilled-out at this point, but there's another development in the fan/Chris Metzen/Christie Golden casting of Superman as Arthas, as the man (of steel) himself has replied to a recent photoshop of him as the Lich King over on Instagram. We start off with two cute/amazing fan interactions, as someone in the thread asked him what his WoW name was and the reply was pure gold:
The second was a fair warning related to Cavill's missing his Man of Steel casting call because he was playing WoW:
And finally there's the big one, even thought it's small, as Cavill tagged Blizzard with a thinking emoji:
And while usually with social media posts like this you'd assume they were made by some PR intern or similar, considering Cavill's love of WoW and the specificity of some of the replies, we can be pretty sure he was the one responding. Here's the full Instagram post:
And just in case you missed it the first time, here's that story of Cavill missing the call that he got the Superman part:

The Great Vault raid loot requirements have finally changed on the 9.0.5 PTR in this week's Build 37705.
As we reported last week, Blizzard planned on changing the raid loot requirements for the weekly chest from 3/7/10 bosses down to 3/6/9 bosses, but Blizzard did not implement the change until this week's Build arrived on the 9.0.5 PTR.
Here's the updated Great Vault tab with the new requirements.
