It's been a while since we delved into the world of Shadowlands memes/funny images, and there's been a lot piling up - but the main reason I wanted to do one now is a truly flawless ones featuring everyone's favorite Toghast duo, Buttons and Moriaz, uh, I mean Mrrraaaz.
But let's warm up first, starting with a very contemporary one, as the Beasts of Prodigum got one for themselves!
As the higher rank Covenant upgrades became available, the anima shortage started becoming all too real for players as well:
The Great Vault, revealing its true form:
We also finally got a resolution for the "which faction balloon toy is best" discussion:
The Night Fae garden didn't come out unscathed in this round or memery either:
Now let's get warmed up for the big finale:
And finally, the one that inspired the compilation:
The "Nooo" is implied. And here's your daily fix of the best character interaction in Shadowlands:
The third Raid Finder Wing of Castle Nathria has opened today!
Item Level 170 is required to queue up for the new wing, and you can get Item Level 187-194 from the bosses within.
Shriekwing, Sludgefist, and Stone Legion Generals await! The final LFR wing opens February 3.
Cut down the traitorous Sire Denathrius and his court loyalists before their twisted plans unfold in an epic new raid—Castle Nathria.
Long has Sire Denathrius ruled the denizens of Revendreth as they harvested anima from prideful souls. But as drought and fear gripped the Shadowlands, Denathrius revealed his true loyalties. In defiance of his former Master, the noble Prince Renathal gathers his few remaining allies for a desperate mission to infiltrate Castle Nathria and remove Denathrius from power.
Raid bosses: 10
Difficulties: Raid Finder, Normal, Heroic, Mythic
Raid Finder Minimum Item Level: 170
RAID UNLOCK SCHEDULE
December 9 – Normal and Heroic Difficulties
December 16 – Mythic and Raid Finder Wing 1 (Huntsman Altimor, Hungering Destroyer, Lady Inerva Darkvein)
January 6 – Raid Finder Wing 2 (Sun King’s Salvation, Artificer Xy’mox, The Council of Blood)
January 20 – Raid Finder Wing 3 (Shriekwing, Sludgefist, Stone Legion Generals)
February 3 – Raid Finder Wing 4 (Sire Denathrius)
Tasked with guarding Castle Nathria’s entry hall, the blind monster Shriekwing locates her victims with horrifying cries that reverberate off the chamber’s walls. The last sound heard by trespassers in the Grand Walk is the monster’s cry as she descends upon her prey.
Sire Denathrius seldom engages in hunts himself, but Altimor makes certain the master has the finest beasts should he ever choose to indulge. Margore, Barghast, and Hecutis has been trained longer than most beasts have existed, and each is ready to deliver the Huntsman’s wrath to any in his domain.
SUN KING’S SALVATION
In the sinister confines of Castle Nathria, souls are being tortured not to redeem their sins, but to amplify them. The prideful Prince Kael’thas has been burdened with the sins of others, and his pain and hatred are channeled to make him a powerful weapon. This has imperiled his soul like no other, and it must be saved—if only to keep it from being unleashed upon the Shadowlands.
Not everyone in Castle Nathria is loyal to Sire Denathrius. Some simply saw an opportunity and exploited it to their own ends. Artificer Xy’mox has worked with Denathrius but is mostly concerned with getting the better end of the deal, which may require the end of Nathria’s invaders.
The devourers consume anima wherever they can find it. With drought afflicting the Shadowlands, it is no surprise that the hungriest and most dangerous of the devourers is drawn to the abundant store of anima here in the depths of Castle Nathria.
LADY INERVA DARKVEIN
Anima fuels the Shadowlands, and Lady Inerva Darkvein seeks to unlock its mysteries. Under Denathrius’s tutelage, she has learned insidious secrets to turn against his enemies. She will strip anima from Nathria’s invaders and use it to shape a dark new future.
THE COUNCIL OF BLOOD
The Council of Blood presides over courtly functions in Revendreth. Castellan Niklaus is a strict military commander with an indominatble will and impenetrable armor, Lord Stravros, a foppish dandy, leads the court in dance but is also deadly with his blades. Baroness Frieda wields powerful anima magics and commands the dredger wait staff—along with the respect of the entire court.
Slugdefist was born in the muddy foundation beneath Castle Nathria and now wanders the halls as he awaits orders from Sire Denathrius. His massive footsteps reverberate throughout the castle, announcing his arrival from several rooms away.
STONE LEGION GENERALS
The ancient stoneborn generals, Kaal and Grashaal, have hounded the Prince Renathal’s rebellion at every turn. Once they were General Draven’s apprentice and mentor; now their strength, strategy, and soldiers have been unleashed against him and any who would defy the Sire’s will.
For countless ages, Sire Denathrius stood among the Eternal Ones who rule the realms of Death. But in the Shadowlands’ darkest hour, he has betrayed his sacred duty. With his bloodthirsty living blade Remornia at his side and defended by his most sychophantic loyalists, Denathrius will cut a swath through any who stand against him and cast their remains into the inescapable terror of the Maw.

Bunni gave her husband Slow Fall after he used Ancient Portal: Dalaran. It didn't quite work out, resulting in a truly restless corpse...

Do not open the Great Vault before killing this week's world boss if you don't raid or do Mythic+.
This week's world boss is Nurgash Muckformed. Do not forget to pick the Replenish the Reservoir weekly Renown quest in your Covenant Sanctum first because defeating the boss grants 250 Anima, so you will be at 250/1,000.
Non-raiders should also open the Great Vault only after defeating Nurgash. If you kill the world boss first, you can pick a different option from the Great Vault.
Raiders and players who finished at least a Mythic +5 run will get better loot and should ignore this advice.
