Amazing Fan-made New Eastern Kingdoms Loading Screen

Recommended Posts

eGgxIeY.png
 

We have some impressive fanart to share today, as slendydaddy has looked ahead and, in preparation Shadowlands, re-made the Eastern Kingdoms loading screen! There's been some criticism on the people included, especially the very Alliance-heavy lean, but it's pretty damn good regardless, even though it could use some more Horde presence (as Valeera isn't affiliated with the Horde at all) and Malfurion's inclusion is a little weird. Perhaps slendydaddy knows something about Shadowlands we don't?

it's strange blizzard seemed to want to bring people back to the old zones in BfA but didn't change the loading screens to reflect that, I can't even remember the last time they changed significantly for EK or Kal

It feels quite a bit oversaturated to be honest (Malfurion comes through as the first holy druid of the Warcraft universe), but I like the theme.

They're still the loading screens from Cataclysm, that's when Thrall started wearing the super bead necklace.

I'd like it if they'd take these good fan-mades and just use them.

It's literally free labor, if someone wants their work in there.  

Would be nice but I assume that they can without paying the artist. The question is then why would they and not ask someone they already pay internally!

They wouldnt have to pay them internally to do it, they can focus on creating new content.  There are probably plenty of people who would volunteer to have their work used in major game for little or nothing.  

This guy created the work with zero promise of payback, after all.

...then blizz should have no problem using it for free.  It certainly looks better than current art.

Not really, especially since there is no loth'remar here... And the night elves still live in Kalimdor.

BTW Starym, he does not know something about shadowlands we dont.
He made a kalimdor one too, but it has gallywix leading the goblins (He left the horde... Gazlowe is leading) He also has cairne, instead of baine. He also has thrall with doomhammer and his old look. As Well as Lilian voss, a barely visible velen, and a random troll.

Well, I don't think I see what's so amazing about a bunch of character arts copy-pasted into Eastern Kingdoms map. Moreso, the filters make them blend with the background turning the picture into yellowish mess, duh.

Not necessarily this picture, but other fan art that might be more accurate. 

I mean all they gotta do is put out a feeler and SOMEONE will make it.  I guarantee it.  

I mean a chance to have your own artwork in a major retail game?  

...and for the night elves, I swore their entire main city portaled to SW after the tree burnt.

So a full list of everything wrong in both maps.

 

EK-
Malfurion is still in darkshore.

Greymane does not look like that in wow, that is Hots artwork.

Mekkatorque artwork is already out of date, as he now has a large machine on his chest.

Valeera is not part of the blood elves, she is part of the Alliance, he instead of Loth'remar makes no sense.


That dwarf is magni... Who does not lead the dwarves, and is made of diamonds right now. Why is he there instead of at least ONE of the council of three hammers who lead the dwarves.

 

Kalim-

Velen is extremely overexposed why? he looks so bad in this.

The thrall art is straight from warcraft, why there is random orcs in the background, idk but it makes it cluttered. Thrall is also weilding doomhammer, and well this is art from warcraft reforged, yes this is thrall from over 10 years ago, he looks nothing like this now.
That tauren is cairne... who has been dead for many years now... that is not baine...

I do not know who this troll is in the top right but its not Rokhan.

Why is gallywix here? he has also left the horde along side sylvanas, he is no longer the leader of the goblins. Gazlowe is.

 

Final score-

EK has only 1 person correct.

Kalim has only 2 people correct, but one of them looks like a blob.

 

 

I normally would not go this hard on something fan made, but its rather easy to do if not just time consuming, as none of the artwork is actually fan made, its just blizz artwork put together on top of a map. Especially since so many things are just blatantly wrong that could have been easily fixed by using other characters.

The issue of "There is no art of them" doesent work, cause if you are going to use genn's artwork from hots, why not gazlowes? As gazlowe is leading the goblins, not gallywix.

There is also up to date loth'remar art, so no excuse of "valeera was the only one with up to date art"

 Pair that with news sites like this blowing it up "AMAZING FAN MADE" and blowing off right out mistakes as "Perhaps the mistake was not a mistake, and they know something we dont." I know its a slow news day but come on.

 

 

 

Its a good job of throwing stuff together, im sure removing the background from some of these pieces must have been hell. But it coulda been done a lot better, and the person does not "know something about shadowlands we do not" im more annoyed this is somehow passed as worthy news, then someone having just made it.

Valeera isnt Alliance nor Horde! She fights for her friends and ideals no matter which faction they belong to.

      Here's a classic tale of Dagpit and Goliath as a raid group didn't quite manage to kill Fatescribe Roh-Kalo on their own in the Sanctum, but then rose the hero they needed and saved the day.
      We've seen plenty of everyone's dead raid boss kills where the Necrolord Heirmir or Venthyr Draven Soulbinds pull a post-death victory, but this one is much more old-school. In a massively understated post titled "MvP Imp", SnooDoodles3070 shared their experience of the raid fully wiping on the Fatescribe extremely close to the end, but then the new DPS king of the raid arrived. Now sure, the boss still had dots and such on him, but everyone else was dead and it sort of looks like the tiny firebolt was the one getting the final blow, so clearly the imp was the one responsible for the win!

      Also, just so we're clear and don't detract from this heroic demon's identity, the name probably isn't Dagpit, I just used that for the expression at the start. But whatever that little demon's name is, he is now a legend among Warlocks and imps alike and we salute it!

      In Eternity's End, players will be able to obtain new Hawk mounts through Protoform Synthesis, a new crafting system native to Zereth Mortis. In this post, we preview all tints and the mount special animation.
      Hawk mounts have 3 tints. All of them can be obtained through Protoform Synthesis.
      Desertwing Hunter
      "Desertwing hunters were created to fill the skies of the Shadowlands."

      Mawdapted Raptora
      "Since the Jailer's incursion, some new raptora have been synthesized by Zereth Mortis specifically capable of resisting the corrupting influence of the Maw."

      Raptora Swooper
      "The raptora swooper was one of the earliest and most vicious iterations of its kind, perfectly suited for its ecological niche. The swoopers synthesized today are identical to those created in eons past, right down to their temperament."

      Finally, here's the mount special animation.

      The fourth week of Patch 9.1.5 is ending soon, so we looked at the Tier List for Mythic+.
      Disclaimer
      In this post, we're taking a look at the tier list for Mythic+ based on the data gathered by Benched.me. The site plots all runs available from the Blizzard API (excluding the Chinese region) on a single ridge plot, so the data is different from our Shadowlands Mythic+ Rankings maintained by Petko.
      How the Data is Calculated
      To rank all specializations, Benched.me uses something called Meta Ratio Score. The "ratio" is between the specialization's representation in the meta vs. its representation in the population. For example, a specialization makes up 3% of all players in the population, but 6% in the meta, which means that spec's ratio is 6% / 3% = 2.
      Furthermore, the site defines the "population" as all keys level 2 through 15 and the "meta" as keys 16 and above. Based on that, we break down specs into tiers based on their meta ratio as follows:
      S-Tier: Ratio of at least 1.5. A-Tier: Ratio between 1 and 1.5. B-Tier: Ratio between 0.5 and 1. C-Tier: Ratio below 0.5, but greater than 0. F-Tier: Ratio of 0 (the spec isn't present in the high-level bin at all). Class / Specialization Mythic+ Tier List (Patch 9.1.5 Week #4)
      S-Tier
      We've got two specializations in the S-Tier.
      Affliction Warlock - 1.73 meta ratio Subtlety Rogue - 1.51 meta ratio A-Tier
      Fire Mage - 1.36 meta ratio Outlaw Rogue - 1.26 meta ratio Windwalker Monk - 1.26 meta ratio Guardian Druid - 1.23 meta ratio Restoration Shaman - 1.18 meta ratio Brewmaster Monk - 1.17 meta ratio Holy Paladin - 1.16 meta ratio Marksmanship Hunter - 1.14 meta ratio Balance Druid - 1.12 meta ratio Arms Warrior - 1.09 meta ratio Elemental Shaman - 1.09 meta ratio Frost Mage - 1.08 meta ratio Arcane Mage - 1.04 meta ratio Discipline Priest - 1.01 meta ratio B-Tier
      Shadow Priest - 0.99 meta ratio Vengeance Demon Hunter - 0.98 meta ratio Unholy Death Knight - 0.95 meta ratio Havoc Demon Hunter - 0.94 meta ratio Blood Death Knight - 0.93 meta ratio Fury Warrior - 0.89 meta ratio Holy Priest - 0.89 meta ratio Survival Hunter - 0.87 meta ratio Protection Paladin - 0.85 meta ratio Beast Mastery Hunter - 0.81 meta ratio Protection Warrior - 0.78 meta ratio Restoration Druid - 0.78 meta ratio Assassination Rogue - 0.77 meta ratio Feral Druid - 0.72 meta ratio Mistweaver Monk - 0.71 meta ratio Enhancement Shaman - 0.68 meta ratio Frost Death Knight - 0.68 meta ratio Destruction Warlock - 0.67 meta ratio Demonology Warlock - 0.64 meta ratio Retribution Paladin - 0.55 meta ratio SEASON 2 PLOT

      We've now seen how big Zereth Mortis actually is, so now let's find out how we get there! Here are two datamined (and very much work in progress) cutscenes that cover how we manage to enter the new patch 9.2 zone, as LeystTV gives us a look! We find out how the final sigil is crafted as well, where exactly we cross over into Zereth Mortis, and who's coming with us:
