Face Queen Azshara’s most devoted champions in an epic new raid—The Eternal Palace.

Ten thousand years ago, as the seas engulfed Zin-Azshari, Queen Azshara forged a dark bargain with N’Zoth that transformed her loyal subjects into the sinister naga. Through millennia of brutal conquest, Azshara has built a new empire from the ruins of the old and now holds dominion over the depths that once threatened to claim her. Ever the gracious host, she has invited the Alliance and Horde alike into her eternal palace to witness her glorious ascension… and their ultimate demise.

Abyssal Commander Sivara

ABYSSAL COMMANDER SIVARA

A master of both martial and magical arts, Abyssal Commander Sivara has ruthlessly led Azshara’s vanguard to countless victories.
Blackwater Behemoth

BLACKWATER BEHEMOTH

Summoned from depths unknown, the Blackwater Behemoth lurks in an abyss so dark that not even the naga dare to venture into it. Only Azshara is capable of taming the beast, and she has trained it to faithfully guard her treasures.

Radiance of Azshara

RADIANCE OF AZSHARA

Using her handmaiden as a willing sacrifice, Azshara has forged into being an elemental of storm and arcana. Powered by the soul of the devoted vassal, the resulting monstrosity is the avatar of Azshara’s radiance.

Lady Ashvane

LADY ASHVANE

Priscilla Ashvane’s relentless pursuit of power has ultimately led her to the Eternal Palace and into a dark pact with Queen Azshara. But what Ashvane receives in return for her loyalty may be more than she bargained for.

Orgozoa

ORGOZOA

Orgozoa tends to Azshara’s hatchery, preparing for the day her incubating horrors are unleashed upon Azeroth.

The Queen's Court

THE QUEEN’S COURT

For ten thousand years, the Queen’s Court has never failed to enforce the word of Azshara. Now, the queen’s most powerful servants stand ready to fulfill her final decree.
Za’qul, Harbinger of Ny’alotha

ZA’QUL, HARBINGER OF NY’ALOTHA

The harbinger for the end of days, Za’qul shreds the last vestiges of sanity from a world in chaos, laying the foundations for Azeroth’s new master.

Queen Azshara

QUEEN AZSHARA

Queen of the Naga, Empress of Nazjatar, and one of the most powerful entities Azeroth has ever known, Azshara has plotted and schemed for millennia in preparation for this fateful moment. Now, with all the pieces in place, the time has finally come to reveal her endgame.

      It's been a while since we checked in on the Covenant class and spec distribution from wowranks.io, with a lot more Renown opening up, new Soulbinds and Conduits and some balancing passes as well pushing certain specs towards different Covenants.
      The overall rankings haven't really changed, but the Night Fae lead has expanded since last we checked, taking up 35% of the population, as Necrolords languish at the bottom with only 15%. The numbers are also quite a bit higher since we checked a couple of months ago, as over 2.5 million new characters have been registered.

      But the much more interesting data lies with the classes and specs, as we take a look at the Covenant distribution for each of them! As usual Druids are extremely Night Fae-heavy, with 83% of the shapeshifters choosing the Ardenweald as their home, with Hunters and Mages in close second for the Fae, with 73% and 69%, respectively. For the Kyrian the Paladins are holding the line, coming in at 75%,  with Warriors and Priest representing the Venthyr most with only 57/ 47%. The Necrolords get an eclectic combo with Death Knights and Shamans, coming in at 62% and 52%.
      And the least represented Covenant/spec combos are definitely Necrolord Demon Hunters and Paladins, both coming in around 2%...
      Here's the full data:
        
        
        


      You can also head on over to wowranks.io for even more different ways to look over all the data.

      Bound Shadehound is a new mount obtainable in Patch 9.0.5 that will work in the Maw!
      All mounts will work in the Maw in Patch 9.1, but you will be limited to mounts that specifically work in the zone until then.
      Currently, on live servers, you either have to complete Layer 8 of the Twisting Corridors to get Corridor Creeper or get the other one (Mawsworn Soulhunter) from "The Hunt: Shadehound" events in the Maw. Luckily, the third and latest addition will be the easiest to obtain. You will be able to forge the mount by collecting Stygia Dust and Silver in the Maw. The new activity is called Stygia Crafting. Here's how the mount looks like in the game.
      Bound Shadehound
      "Created by deciphering and performing powerful runic magic, this Shadehound is bound to its creator."

      Power Infusion has recently been a hot topic in the community, with the logs being heavily affected by it, as many non-Priest specs are getting a lot of buffs during fights to boost their overall DPS. There's even some drama surrounding who gets the buff, and Shadow Priests not wanting to give it away, which we've recently talked about, but today there's at least a solution to the logs part of the issue.
      Warcraft Logs have added markers for Power Infusion and Innervate, so you can now see not only if a player received one of these buffs during a fight, but also how many! 

      Warcraft Logs creator Kihra explains in detail:
      This should make it a lot easier to track individual player performances and for players to improve through the logs, as it is now clearer whether someone is just outdpsing/outhealing you because they're playing better, or if they just got a bunch of external buffs!

      The half orc half ogre Mok'Nathal finally get some love, as Lonely Road pictures made some concepts for the race! Rexxar's kind don't get much attention in WoW, but they will be featured in an upcoming cinematic by Lonely Road and so they got some pretty cool models ready!
      One of the characters above is having way too much fun and might just be too cool for Wow. Plenty of players would have preferred this particular race to the slightly more generic mag'har we actually got (although straight-backs are always welcome), so we can hopefully see more of them in the future and give those tauren some size competition!
      Some great work by Lonely Road!

      While we now know that the Archon survives the events of the 9.1 patch cinematic, the scene was somewhat reminiscent of something we've seen around the holidays last year, as the Archon was killed during a regular Spires of Ascension run.
      In the patch 9.1 cinematic we see the Jailer/Anduin stab Kyrestia in the chest and take out her "key", but we also see her moving afterwards, and Blizzard confirmed that she survives the attack. However, when she was taken down at the end of last year in the dungeon, she actually died and had a special text pop-up that said "As the Archon perishes, all life in the zone is wiped out!", so it's probably for the best that she survived the Jailer's attack. Zovaal and Anduin didn't/couldn't take her down, but a regular Doomguard apparently has no problems:
      The kicker here is that she respawned after her death and one of the party members commented on it, basically predicting what will happen in patch 9.1:
      The death animation itself doesn't seem relevant, as we won't get to see the cinematic events in-game directly, but her holding her side is. So it's quite likely we'll be seeing that particular character animation of the Archon, spearless and injured, when we go to her after the events of the 9.1 cinematic! We'll see whether this will be just a special thing for Kyrian Covenant members or (more likely) we'll all get to see and talk to her after what happens, and it'll be really interesting to see if she'll be using the same animation as above.
      In terms of what actually happened in the "kill" above, it was another manifestation of the already seen bug where a Warlock pet goes a little crazy, being both hostile and friendly at the same time and gaining some serious power. The fact it went on to actually attack and eventually take down the friendly NPC was new, however, and we haven't seen any reports of it happening since.
