Recommended Posts

Shadowlands is the next World of Warcraft expansion coming after Battle for Azeroth.

For more details check out our BlizzCon 2019 Content Hub!

We're going to the Shadowland which is the afterlife of the entire Warcraft universe. We will meet some of the fallen and learn more about their destiny. King Terenas told us there must always be a Lich King, and in the official reveal cinematic, Sylvanas took Bolvar's mask at icecrown, revealing the Realm of Shadow.

Great animation, although it is like me and many have predicted. Sylvanas is now more like Kerrigan, with some plan to "set us free", hopefully she won't turn good later.

Well at least their writers aren't completely out of mind by putting the crown on Sylvanas, that's good. Wonder if finally she will find the use of all that azerite everyone was so mad about and now completely forgot.
Tho i feel how addon's theme is so out of nowhere, they will need to do a ton of explanation of what shadowlands actually are to capture some interest. "New" and "Mysterious" lands is just bland by itself, there need to be something backing of it with story, which shadowlands completely lack so far, they really need a patch to tie it all together.

Reminder: One of the key Kul Tiran heroes in BfA was Taelia Fordragon, daughter of the (last?) Lich King. Wonder what'll be her next move once she learns of her father's story or will this conclude the return of Bolvar in some form.

Yet more Sylvanas fanboy-ism, solo-ing the most powerful character in lore. The write-up looks promising, however, but BFA looked good too and it's been pretty "meh". Looking forward to it, but I'm not too hyped either.

"the most powerful character in lore" the Lich King isn't the most powerful character in lore. This also isn't a full power Lich King, he has no Frostmourne, the helm of domination isn't even what it once was, the original Lich King WITH frostmorne fought Illidan and it ended in a draw.

Not saying he isn't strong, but he's definitely not the most powerful character in lore.

Sylvanas plot armor is starting to become really ridiculous. She fights the Lich King's entire army ALONE, wins against him in a 1v1 AND destroys his helm with her BARE HANDS.

This is ridiculous. It's like they're trying to please SJWs to have strong female representation, but Sylvanas is becoming a Mary Sue.

Does Sylvanas mean she's gonna break the fourth wall and save the NPCs from the imprisoned fate of being endlessly grinded by the players by shutting down this game?

Their giving her all the power she was denied in Warcraft 3 and making her into this big-deal until she either dies or becomes some martyr. She was always a behind the scenes Hero. Coming back to Icecrown Citadel to introduce Shadow lands only proves my point. Even though we all know Syl accepted that Arthas aka the Lich King was done and dealt with. What more needs to be said. Next! The trailer is pretty cool

I mean, it's been shown she's pretty hopped up on at least void maybe void and death magics. 

She's definitely a plot point, but it's hardly "Oh appease the SJWs" it's because she's been entwined with this death story from the beginning. Who else would they use for it?

After watching this cinematic, you feel even more sad for Saurfang... but respect his courage and resolve even more. Poor guy.

What do you think happens to Bolvar now? The way he looked helpless at Sylvanas reminded me of the same defeated pose Gul'dan was in at the end of the Warlords cinematic.

Yea people think it's bad writing because they have yet to tell us how she's getting this power. It doesn't mean they are going to ignore it, just means they're building towards an explanation.

Arthas LK > Bolvar LK, for sure. The mantle of Lich King is a husk of what it once was. Frostmourne, Ner'zhul, Arthas - all broken and purged. Once the supreme commander of necromancy, the current Lich King is an overpowered baby-sitter of the scourge and a guard to the eternal veil. From a lore perspective, he hasn't even been unfrozen that long.

For a minute there, I thought she's going wear the helmet.

+1. StarCraft was great, Kerrigan was great..just wish the story was different..no need for "revenge".

 

I'm excited to get back into wow. I've never really played it too seriously but the fact that level squish is coming and all races can play DK, it's peaked my interest for sure! Might buy a physical copy of the expack and resub once it's released.

Same here. I would love to make a DK Vulpera. ?

      It appears that the Weekly Maximum Valor cap has been removed on the 9.0.5 PTR. The patch releases this week on March 9.
      Previously, players could only earn 750 Valor each week, as shown in the screenshot below.

      On Thursday, Blizzard announced in a blue post that they were increasing Valor caps on the 9.0.5 PTR. Most importantly, they also added that there would be a cap of 1,500 on how much Valor a character can hold at a time, which seems to have been scrapped in the end.
      Currently, on the PTR, it looks like Blizzard has entirely removed the Weekly Valor cap in a hotfix (see missing tooltip). The Total Maximum cap has been increased to 8,750 Valor.

      We're still waiting for Blizzard to confirm if the Weekly Cap has been indeed scrapped or if it's just a bug.

      ChromedDragon created a map of Draenor before Garrosh showed up. Check it out!
      On the map, we see how the individual Orc clans completely surrounded the Draenei from almost all directions.

      Tanks are getting a lot of focus in Shadowlands with the increased Mythic+ focus, and it's only going to get more intense with the next pach, so we rounded up some funny stories, depressing interactions, memes and similar. Here's a grab-bag of tanking experiences from many players.
      While all tanks are always needed, things change around the +15 mark, as it's not just DPS that have this particular experience, and if you're one of the least popular/worst specs...
      Then there's this type of terrible, which hasn't really changed that much since, well, forever, as there will always be assholes out there, but there really do seem to be more and more of them these days, especially in Mythic+...

      Source: ChoGallMeta.
      And even if you do well, it's never enough for some people:
      But, sometimes it's quite a different feeling, as however terrible players might be to you, you're still a tank damn it!
      And there are some perfect moments that can only come from tanking, including this one titled "My greatest M+ tanking Achievement...":

      Source: Sheth1984.
      If the group gets really annoying, you can always have the last word too:

      Source: Boars89.
      And finally, if you get REALLY tired of all the DPS not interrupting, the healer selfishly trying to keep those idiots that stand in every mechanic under the sun alive instead of keeping you above 80%, or people dare to question your route, you can always just go with your own kind!
