Snapdragons are a new type of creatures native to Nazjatar that we're not only going to see in Patch 8.2, but ride as well. In this article, we're looking at the Royal Snapdragon mount in more detail.

Ahh the typical cat rig recycling.

I demand blizz make entirely new rigs for every mount. Sure it LOOKS different but, it's clearly based on a cat rig so it's NOT GOOD ENOUGH

I agree to the posts above me, they´re re-using the Cat model yet again while we´re looking for something new and fresh, I remember seeing the Spider mount when we had Legion on the Beta and it was super cool. I just dont get the same feeling seeing this mount, it looks really good and all, but its missing something new, something unique.

Making whole new animations is not easy and can be very time-consuming, even though mounts generally don't have many different types of animations. So I agree that it is easier to simply slap a model in an existing rig and call it a day to save time and resources, but Blizzard is notorious for doing that a lot. I'm still very bitter that they used the Male Orc rig for "Incarnation: Tree of Life" for Druids, for instance.

I guess I needed to put /s because I was being sarcastic. Not every mount/model needs a new rig because let's face it, a lot less people look at the rig when they decide if they like a mount. It's just so weird because people are already criticizing the sea horse that's more so a Kelpie, yet that's pretty unique

I agree, but we´re also getting alot of new mounts like the Wheel mount from Mechagon or the "new" seahorses. I dont disagree about the part where making new frames and all for the mounts is time consuming and all but if we see something like this, a new "skin" pasted over something old, as a Raid achievement mount im going to be abit disappointed. We dont know if it is going to be the achievement one but one can hope we avoid it.

      DesMephisto is back (or, more accurately, he never left, as he constantly strives to improve his leveling speeds), and he's gotten his speed record for 10-50 Shadowlands leveling significantly down from his last attempt! 3 hours and 56 minutes (or 3 h 37 min, if you remove the "screwing around" parts) is all it took to get to the equivalent of today's level 120, using Chromie time in Warlords of Draenor, beating the previous best we reported by over an hour and a half.

      Now, it's important to mention that Blizzard have stated in interviews that the current XP rates and leveling speeds on Alpha aren't final and are very rough at the moment, but it's till great to see players going for these speed records nonetheless.
      And here's the last minute or so of the leveling process, and you can check out the whole thing below as well:


      You can also check out our recent interview with the man himself, where he goes into all the many recent achievements he's had, from the 46 max level warriors, to the speed leveling, Autism charity, Guinness World Record and more.

      Method ran Ny'alotha on Heroic difficulty with a raid comprised of 29 Mages and one Demon Hunter, and while they downed all the bosses including N'Zoth, the clear highlight is Dresta'gath that has been defeated in just 22 seconds.
      You can watch the Pyroblast shower and Dresta'gath's decreasing health bar in the following video:

      3D Artist Dronmo has created a jungle in Unreal Engine 4 inspired by Stranglethorn Vale.
      Here's a comparison of the Stranglethorn Vale in World of Warcraft and the recreated version of the zone in Unreal Engine 4 taken from ArtStation.

      Here's another comparison of the zone.

      The artist teamed up with his friend, a guitar virtuoso, who produced ambient relaxing music for the video.
