Shadowlands Alpha datamining continues with a preview of new creature models. We will meet some key WoW characters again in the Shadowlands realm. Spoiler alert.

Bolvar

Jailer

The main antagonist of Shadowlands.His model looks somewhat different from what we saw at BlizzCon and is closer to the unveiled concept art. Note that the Jailer's model is huge, so he's not your usual NPC.

Wait, does that mean Kel'Thuzad is really dead? I know we didn't find his phylactery last time but I thought that meant that he was recuperating somewhere.

we knew for quite some time that his soul was lost somewhere in the shadowlands from the WoW chronicle vol. 3 iirc

I don't even care if this was just a little easter egg side quest but it'd be cool to find Grom and Garrosh fighting side by side out there 🪓

 

On that note have they yet explained what determines whether a character would be found out there or not?

      The Shadowlands really look incredible, and the visuals really are one of the strongest aspects of the new expansion, but there's even more to them (or less, in this case)! Players have been exploring the afterlife, and after many, MANY "Bastion is really bright" memes, it seems players have taken to dimming things down, and the Inky Black Potion from the Darkmoon Faire makes the Shadowlands really true to their name!
      Let's start with Oribos, as the contrast really pops:

      And the infinitely bright Bastion:

      We even got a comparison shot for Maldraxxus!

      But truly, Ardenweald is the star of this Inky Black show:

      While Revendreth just looks more Revendrethy:

      The Maw, however, sort of loses some of its uniqueness:

      Source: thadakism.
      We even get a clearer view of Torghast back in Icecrown with the potion!

      Source: tiniestjazzhands.
       
      In any case, if you have some potions handy, definitely take a look around each zone while you're in there, or if not, don't forget to stock up the next time the Darkmoon Faire is in town!

      Did you always get slightly upset when Pelagos and Kleia would mount up on those cool flying lion-looking mounts in the Bastion quests and you couldn't? Well now you can! The Silverwind Larion has been found, or rather the way to get him has, as you'll "just" need to collect 50 tiny Anima Shards in Bastion.

      As Belivious677 pointed out, the WoW secret finding community has recently found the final 50th one, and you can find all their locations (and details on the hunt itself) in this google document, or they may have already been uploaded to the HandyNotes: Shadowlands addon as well (the creator put together the google doc as well), or they will be soon.

      These aren't all of them so definitely check out the google doc for the full guide.
      So once again, thanks to Belivious677 for pointing out the secret has been solved, to HandyNotes maker Zarillion for putting the search together and to the WoW secret finding discord for, well, finding the secret!

      We have a very useful list/visual made by TempusSimian today, as they've taken a look at all the Covenant-related mounts you can acquire, and you don't even need to be in that specific Covenant for all of them (although you might need help from someone who is)! This isn't a definitive and final list, as TempusSimian has just researched the matter and the expansion is 2 days old, but it's very useful nonetheless! It's also a giant image so zoom in for the best results!

      In terms of actually being able to ride the mounts when not in that specific Covenant, the non-Covenant specific section SHOULD be usable regardless of affiliation. Another thing to note: it's likely that after Shadowlands, all of the Covenant exclusive mounts will become available to everyone, as you won't be in your Covenant for the next expansion's content (presumably, at least). We can't be sure on that last one, but it's a safe/reasonable bet. Also, don't forget, you can swap Covenants if you're just after the mounts for your collection and mounts collected total number (so maybe one of your alts will be the Covenant traitor and go around collecting mounts)!

      Source.
      So thanks a lot to TempusSimian for assembling this and hopefully it will aid you in your mount collecting journey!

      It seems Blizzard are putting together some official info for new players, as we have a new trailer for new players and their adventure in Exile's Reach, as wel as the official Chromie Time guide/reminder to chekc out. 
       
      Timewalking Campaigns (source)
      Have you ever wanted to seamlessly explore the story in full for Wrath of the Lich King, Burning Crusade, or a different past expansion? Now you can fully immerse yourself in any expansion’s questlines (and earn level-appropriate loot and experience gains) with Timewalking Campaigns! Once you reach level 50 on any character on your account, any 10 to 49 level characters can use Timewalking Campaigns to choose an expansion for their leveling experience. To do so, interact with the Hero’s Call Board located in Stormwind’s Trade District or Orgrimmar’s Warchief’s Command Board in the Valley of Strength and select “Chromie’s Call.” From here, you’ll be pushed a quest, “Adventurers Wanted: Chromie’s Call” which will lead you to Chromie who awaits adventurers near the Stormwind Embassy to the north-west of the Dwarven District or the Orgrimmar Embassy in the southern-most area of The Valley of Spirits. After meeting with Chromie, you’ll be able to pick a campaign from any past expansion which will scale to your level.
      Now just select a campaign, and you’re ready for adventure! Simply follow the new quest pushed to you and travel to the destination listed in the quest’s objective. From there you’ll be able to explore the expansion content as you choose, and can even stay within the content for the entirety of your level-up experience.
      Exploring Dungeons
      While using the Dungeon Finder (hotkey: I), you'll be offered dungeons for your selected timeline to keep the exploration of the zone’s story intact. However, if you join a group and different characters have chosen different timelines, you'll be able to enter the queue for dungeons from any timeline represented by the party. If the queue for dungeons within the timeline you’ve chosen takes too long to find a suitable group, you’ll be offered to expand the search to other timelines.
      Timewalking Campaigns are available for you to use as soon as your character reaches level 10 or completes the new starting experience, Exile’s Reach. Now, go forth in your journey—your future is waiting for you in the past!

      Battle for Azeroth is over, and we are taking a final look at how tanks and healers ranked in Mythic+ during the final week!
      DATA RELIABILITY: The data used in this article comes from benched.me. Reddit user OtherwiseUniversity7 plotted all keys available from the Blizzard API (excluding the CN region) on a single ridge plot to gather all data.
      Total Runs Recorded
      We are first looking at the total runs recorded for each specialization that we filter down to find out the most popular ranged and melee DPS specializations in the subsequent sections of this article.
      Most Popular Tanks for Mythic+
      1st: Protection Paladin - 644,782 runs 2nd: Vengeance Demon Hunter - 398,483 runs 3rd: Brewmaster Monk - 320,971 runs 4th: Blood Death Knight - 310,136 runs 5th: Protection Warrior - 266,016 runs 6th: Guardian Druid - 228,635 runs Detailed Look at Spec Performance
      The meta kicks in at around Keystone 16+, where most specializations lose their share of representation to the meta classes.

      Share of Tank Specializations in Weekly Top 6,000 Runs
      Here is a sample of the top 500 runs for each dungeon (6,000 total keys) each week. We then count the number of times each spec appears in this weekly top 500 sample. Spec numbers go up and down each week as a result of the Tyrannical/Fortified split.

      Most Popular Healers for Mythic+
      1st: Restoration Druid - 645,537 runs 2nd: Restoration Shaman - 412,500 runs 3rd: Discipline Priest: 359,561 runs 4th: Holy Paladin - 273,054 runs 5th: Mistweaver Monk - 238,220 runs 6th: Holy Paladin - 234,232 runs Detailed Look at Spec Performance
