There's been a lot to talk about for the Shadowlands launch, with the server instabilities, black screen and similar, but this one is a pretty positive consequence of the new expansion coming out.
It's always a struggle deciding whether to play through the night at an expansion launch, and while it's a great experience you at least partially regret it the next day(s). Well, the appropriately named F33LGOODiNC had none of those regrets, as playing Shadowlands late into the night/morning actually saved their apartment!
Not only that, but the whole family was coming to that apartment for the holidays so WoW also saved a big family event! It's always great to see personal moments like this from palyers, where WoW actually affects our lives in a specific out-of-game way. Also, to draw you back in to the relatively negative side of reddit and internet posts in general , unsurprisingly the bulk of the comments in the thread are about the Macbook being used to play the game and whether/how that sucks.
Also, the post already spawned a meme response!
Simple Tome of Bone-Binding that teaches Hunters how to tame Undead beasts has been found!
The item has a small chance to drop from mobs in Maldraxxus and the Plaguefall dungeon. Undead players can tame Undead beasts by default as mentioned in the official patch notes.
Undead beasts include Skeletal and mummy devilsaurs, raptors, eagles, zombie dogs, wind serpents, and hell hounds.
A neat detail was spotted on live servers. Darion Mograine refers to Death Knight players as "Deathlords" instead of the usual "Champion."
Reddit user LordDShadowy53 spotted the little detail, and it's a nice one since most of the NPCs in the game constantly call us "Hero" or "Champion," and some players even feel shut off when Jaina calls them like that in a casual conversation.
Would you like to go back to being a nobody in the game or do you enjoy when everyone calls you Hero/Champion?
Many players keep asking whether it's currently possible to skip the Maw introductory questline, and the short answer is no.
You must complete the same Shadowlands intro questline on all characters before heading to Oribos, which obviously isn't a big problem now that the expansion is just a few hours old, but it may get tiresome for sure in the future.
While you do not need to follow Shadowlands' linear narrative on your second character, there will still be no dialogue option to skip the Maw intro. Blizzard hasn't yet responded to this, and we do not know if they even plan to make it skippable at some point.
Legendary items in the Shadowlands are one of the most important parts of your class and spec, and luckily for those of us with Legion flashbacks, they're all craftable and the recipes are (mostly) consistent drops.
The crafting process aka Runecarving is pretty simple: you need the base item, crafted via professions, the legendary recipe (received from various sources), a couple of items that set the secondary stats and, the most important part, Soul Ash which you receive in Torghast (but not until tomorrow/Wednesday with the first reset).
You can read the full Runecarving guide here for many more details.
Then we're on to the actual powers themselves, which are split into general powers, which anyone can use, and then the generic class powers, which any spec from the class can use, and finally the spec-specific powers (which are mostly the ones you want, depending on spec).
