      Head to Dalaran and talk to the Archaeology Trainer to receive The Right Path quest where you are sent to Thunder Totem in Highmountain to collect Bone Fragment of Eche'ro for the Spirit of Eche'ro mount. Note that the quest is available only once every six months, so don't forget to complete it before it's gone!
      Download MapCoords or some other addons that display coordinates on the world map. Teleport to Azsuna from the Stormwind/Orgrimmar Portal Room or use your Dalaran Hearthstone to reach Dalaran. Go to 41,26 find Dariness the Learned and learn Archaeology if you already haven't. Accept The Right Path quest from the Archaeology Trainer and fly to Thunder Totem in Highmountain. Talk to Lessah Moonwater to accept Laying to Rest. For the quest, you must collect 600 Bone Fragment of Eche'ro from four digsites in Highmountain. Digsite: Darkfeather Valley (50, 44) Digsite: Dragon's Falls (58, 72) Digsite: Path of Huin (44, 72) Digsite: Whitewater Wash (39, 65) Spirit of Eche'ro

      We've heard a lot of news on the Shadowlands Druid visual choice improvements, from the fact that they can now change their bear and cat form looks regardless of their other cosmetic choices, the fact that you can do that in the barbershop etc, but now we have even more good news/confirmations! With the PTR up it seems Blizzard have indeed decided to allow the Druid of the Flame/fire cat/cinder kitten/Majordomo Staghelm cat form to be used, as long as you've unlocked it via the Fandral's Flamescythe staff (the unlock is account-wide), which they've been considering for a while now! It's still a little unclear if having gotten the Fandral's Seed Pouch toy would also unlock the option in the barbershop for you.

      Source.
      The other piece of good news is that all the Legion artifact appearances (and indeed even the fire cat) can be selected regardless of your currently used spec! This adds a whole lot of freedom for druids to look as they want, and will almost certainly increase the number of people going for some of the artifact looks and, of course, the fire cat.

      One of the key parts of the pre-expansion Scourge invasion event is that players can get infected and be transformed into zombies, receiving a new set of abilities and becoming hostile to both factions! As you'd expect this is a pretty popular activity on the PTR right now, with hordes of zombies taking down everything and everyone in the capital cities and beyond. You can get cured by either dying or by visiting an Argent healer... but why would you want to do that? One especially interesting aspect of this is that apparently NPCs can get infected as well, leading to some pretty massive gatherings.

      Source.
      Despite this being potentially pretty disruptive, with quest NPCs missing and players in ghoul form terrorizing the countryside, hopefully Blizzard leave it as is for the live event, since things like this really add to the dynamics of the game, as having unique periods where strange and even annoying stuff happens is great variety!
      Here are the abilities you'll get when turned into a zombie:
        Mangle! - Melee that adds a 5% damage taken debuff. Retch! - Creates green goo on the floor that slows enemies. Beckoning Groan - Calls 4 NPC zombies to help you if nearby. Lurch! - 100% speed increase for you and nearby zombies. Zombie Explosion! - Explode and deal damage around you. You die.
      Source.

      Today's hotfixes affect Warlocks' Singe Magic and Glyph of Fel Imp and fix an issue EU realms were having with Cataclysm timewalking having started a day early.
      August 11 (source)
      Classes
      Warlock Resolved an issue that prevented Singe Magic from triggering the correct cooldown when Glyph of Fel Imp is applied to your Summon Imp spell. Timewalking
      [For realms in the EU region only] The Cataclysm Timewalking event incorrectly began a day early in Europe. Developers’ note: We have adjusted this week's event duration and spawned the appropriate vendors early to ensure that it runs until the next weekly reset. The weekly event schedule should remain on Wednesdays for EU realms going forward.

      The Shadowlands pre-patch event has been pushed to the PTR and is now available for testing, so we're looking at what awaits us. This article contains spoilers.
      Note that the event is not available for testing in its entirety and it will be probably time-gated on live servers.
      You receive the intro quest from Valeera Sanguinar as a Horde player. She wants to meet up with you and Lor'themar in Orgrimmar. You learn that the undead Scourge is swarming in numbers not seen since the return of the Lich King. A NYI cinematic starts playing where Anduin and Jaina get abducted by Sylvanas. The Scourge's unbound hunger has been unleashed and it is only a matter of time before they're swarming the streets. The death knights of the Ebon Blade have stepped forward to aid you and the Argent Crusade has returned to answer the call. Lor'themar admits Sylvanas is a great tactician. Bolvar is free of the Lich King's crown and is recovering in Acherus. You are sent to the Barrens to investigate the Scourge presence in the area. The Cult of the Damned is back and you must kill some of their members including ghouls that spawn from portals in the Crossroads. The Argent Crusade has come to aid your effort in the area. You are sent back to Orgrimmar and are sent to Icecrown to see what's going on with the Scourge and you find out Nathanos Blightcaller has been spotted in Eastern Plaguelands, so you are ordered to slay him. You secure a foothold in Icecrown and unlock daily quests there. Random bosses spawn in the zone and reward item level 100 loot (squish is already live on the PTR).
