World of Warcraft Q&A Recap

  • It will be easier to get Heritage Armor after the leveling squish.
  • In the Shadowlands, we're going to learn more about Sylvanas' motives. She started working with the Jailer sooner, around the time of the Edge of Night short story.
  • War Mode is going to work in the Shadowlands.
  • They have no intention to disable Covenant abilities in PvP, but certain restrictions may apply if they would have to water down an ability completely.
  • Flying is going to work the same was as in previous expansions.
  • HD characters would feel out of place in WoW Classic, they're not doing that.
  • Legendary items will become transmogable in the near future.
  • The Jailer is going to be driving the core of the storyline. He is the main antagonist of the expansion.
  • Heart of Azeroth will not be depleted in Patch 9.0. Essences and Azerite powers won't work in the Shadowlands, but they'll still function in Timewalking.
  • More than 40 customization options for Blood Elves are planned.
  • Canonically, the Alliance won at Stromgarde and Darkshore.
  • TBC servers are a possibility in the future. They don't know how to approach the progress, though. Would it make sense to allow players from WoW Classic to move to TBC servers next? They're not opposed the idea, but they'd have to approach it carefully.
  • Shadowlands is the first step in exploring the cosmology of World of Warcraft.
  • Resurrecting is going to be different in the Shadowlands. The aesthetic will be different, but we will be nudged by Azeroth to return to life and save cosmos as opposed to Spirit Healers in Azeroth.
  • The owl people are Kyrian Soulbounds in the Shadowlands.
  • There will be 16 Covenant Armor Sets in Shadowlands, there are no plans for the return of Class Sets in the initial patch of Shadowlands, but they may return in the future.
  • They're listening to feedback and agree that Class Sets made raiding compelling.

The owl people WERE people. They lived their lives, died and their souls are now owl people.

      The Marks of Honor calculator is a spreadsheet that tells you how many marks you need to buy everything.
      Created by boldchickeneater, the Marks of Honor calculator lets you simply calculate how many marks you need to purchase pretty much anything from the vendors.
      Where can you buy marks in Valdrakken?
      Seltherex is located at 44, 37 in Valdrakken (Gladiator's Refuge). For 2,000 Honor, you can buy 5 marks (Orboreal Distinguishment).

      Open this link and navigate to File > Make a copy. Now when you own a set, you can replace the "12" in the corresponding cell with "0" and it will update the totals.
      Combatant sets and weapons can be filtered out if you are not interested in them.

      RiskyCB has set another record with their Temple of the Jade Serpent speed run in MoP Remix!
      It's hard to imagine anyone going faster than this!  After RiskyCB's 20-second Scarlet Halls speed run from earlier today, the player completed Temple of the Jade Serpent in 16.85 seconds.
      Did you catch how Risky tagged Wise Mari with a Void Orb?

      Blizzard just posted another War Within short story. This time, it's about Moria Thaurissan and her son Dagran II, who both play an important role in the upcoming expansion!
      Queen Regent Moira Thaurissan is exhausted. Her son, Dagran II, is rapidly coming of age and stands to inherit leadership of both the Dark Iron and Bronzebeard Clans. But Dagran is bookish and odd: He would easily choose the company of his library over leadership. Can Moira inspire her son to take up his birthright, or will her fears for his future—and the future of the clans—prove true?
