While there is a macro and addons that allow you to display the Great Vault UI anywhere in the open world, Blizzard implemented a simple button that allows you to preview rewards from the Great Vault anywhere in Patch 9.0.5.
The button is found in the PvP interface that you can access by pressing "H".
They also added the button to the Dungeons tab, but you must complete at least 1 Mythic Dungeon to see it.
The maker of the awesome Castle Pineapplia is back with a new browser game, but this one focuses on your dodging specific abilities!
The Pineapple Training Grounds lets you choose between Sire Denathrius' Massacre, Shriekwing's Echoing Screech and one Mythic+ mechanic, Dark Bolt from the Ventunax encounter in Spires of Ascension. You'll obviously be controlling the pineapple again and dodging the mechanics to get you ready for when you run into them in actual WoW:
That is one dead pineapple.
Here are some comments from the creator:
It's definitely worth a try, especially on Insane difficulty, so check it out here.
If you have a ton of alts you want to try out and don't feel like putting in too much effort, here's a not too slow and very easy way to get from 50 to 60!
MoffiSlayer found a spot in Ardenweald where you can easily 3-button chill farm player XP via a pet battle, but you might need the Iron Starlette and some pet bandages. It's probably doable with other pets as well, but this one gets the job done in 2 rounds, so it's the optimal choice. It's a pretty good option if you have something else to do/watch a show or movie, or even at work as some players noted (via remote desktop tools and similar), as it's a very brainless side-activity. This will earn you about 195K XP per hour, so you'll need about 14-15 hours to get from 50 to 60, which actually isn't that bad at all considering the regular way will probably take about 10 for a relatively chill playthrough, except that requires actual focus. The pet battle is located in Ardenweald at 40, 64.4.
Earlier this week, a new 9.0.5 PTR build went live on test servers, so we recapped what's new in case you've missed it.

Valor System Updates
The Valor system received a lot of updates in Build 37705. Mainly, we learned that Mythic +0 gear is upgradable. We also previewed Valor sources and caps and the crafting reagents available to those that don't wish to upgrade their Mythic Dungeon Gear.
Mythic +0 Gear Upgradable to Item Level 200
We noticed that base Mythic Gear has up to 12 ranks and can be upgraded up to Item Level 200 with Valor.
Valor Sources & Max Caps
You can collect Valor in 9.0.5 to upgrade Mythic Dungeon Gear, so we looked at the different activities that award Valor and how much you can collect each week.
Crafting Reagents Available for Valor
If you don't want to upgrade gear with Valor but need to spend it, you can exchange it for various crafting reagents, like Heavy Callous Hide, Elethium Ore, and Lightless Silk.
Great Vault Requirements Changed
Blizzard has nerfed raid loot requirements for the Great Vault in Patch 9.0.5. You will only need to defeat 3/6/9 bosses to unlock all 3 item options in the weekly chest.
Recommended Item Level for Torghast Layers
To better illustrate your chances of success, a recommended Item Level is displayed when selecting Layer difficulty in Patch 9.0.5.
Bound Shadehound Maw Mount Coming in Patch 9.0.5
Bound Shadehound is the third Maw mount players will be able to obtain in the forthcoming update. It's also the easiest one to get. You won't need to complete Layer 8 of the Twisting Corridors or rely on RNG when it comes to the mount from "The Hunt" event.
The eleventh week of Shadowlands Season 1 has ended, and after 2 weeks, we looked at the most popular tanks and healers for Mythic+.
Earlier in the week, we also looked at the most popular DPS specializations for Mythic+.
This Week's Affixes
Tyrannical Raging Quaking Prideful Data Reliability
The data used in this article comes from benched.me and is updated every hour. Reddit user OtherwiseUniversity7, the site's author, plotted all keys available from the Blizzard API (excluding the CN region) on a single ridge plot to gather all the information.
Total Runs Recorded
Here we have the total runs recorded for each tank and healer specialization after 12 weeks of Mythic Season 1. Based on the data, we filter out the most popular tanks and healers in Mythic+.
Most Popular Tanks for Mythic+
Vengeance Demon Hunter remains the most popular tank for Mythic+ multiple weeks in a row with more than 3.7 million runs. Protection Paladin is second with 2.8 million runs. Brewmaster Monk is third with 1.38 million runs. The least popular tank spec is Protection Warrior.
1st: Vengeance Demon Hunter - 3,720,085 runs 2nd: Protection Paladin - 2,862,188 runs 3rd: Brewmaster Monk - 1,381,771 runs 4th: Guardian Druid - 1,355,591 runs 5th: Blood Death Knight - 1,253,296 runs 6th: Protection Warrior - 756,268 runs Detailed Look at Spec Performance
Here is a visual representation of the share of tanking specializations at each keystone level. The meta starts kicking in at Mythic+16, where most specializations begin losing their share of representation to the meta-classes.
Share of Tank Specializations in Weekly Top 500 Runs
To observe meta shifts throughout the season, we sample the top 500 runs for each dungeon (a total of 6K keys) for each week. We then count the number of times each specialization appears in the weekly top 500 sample.
Most Popular Healers for Mythic+
Restoration Druid is no longer the most popular healer for Mythic+. They got overrun by Restoration Shaman with 3.174 million runs, and albeit the difference between 1st and 2nd place is just a measly 70K runs, it's nice to see a class other than Druid first. Holy Paladin remains third, and the rest is pretty much unchanged, with Mistweaver Monk as the least popular healer.
1st: Restoration Shaman - 3,174,079 runs 2nd: Restoration Druid - 3,105,489 runs 3rd: Holy Paladin - 1,873,967 runs 4th: Discipline Priest - 1,351,766 runs 5th: Holy Priest - 1,086,248 runs 6th: Mistweaver Monk - 730,933 runs Detailed Look at Spec Performance
Here's a visual representation of the share of healer specializations at each keystone level.
Share of Healer Specializations in Weekly Top 500 Runs
The meta is really stable within a single patch, and spec representation within the top 500 barely changes. The data has a zig-zag trend. Spec numbers, mostly the top specs, go up and down each week due to the Tyrannical/Fortified split.
On Tyrannical weeks, top pushers bench their meta-class mains and play non-meta alts, or don't play at all. As a result, the share of meta specializations in the top 500 drops on Tyrannical weeks. Similarly, the share of meta specializations rises to its max during push weeks.
