      World of Warcraft players have organized a massive virtual protest in Oribos across multiple servers to support the Activision Blizzard walkout, protesting against the recent harassment allegations and lawsuit.
      Players have been logging out en-masse on live servers to support Activision Blizzard employees that participate in today's walkout protest. Here's how it looked in-game on some servers. Note that some of the posts have been edited and you must visit Reddit to view them.








      Thanks to Kalterast (Zul'jin) for the screenshot!

      About the Lawsuit
      Last week, The California Department of Fair Employment and Housing sued Activision Blizzard over "frat boy" culture. The lawsuit was filed after a two-year investigation by the state agency, according to Bloomberg.
      Since then, Blizzard President J. Allen Brack sent an internal email to Blizzard employees. The former CEO and co-founder of Blizzard Mike Morhaime later also came forward with his own statement.
      More than 1,000 current and former Blizzard employees signed an open letter, condemning the company's responses, and sent it to multiple publications.
      The World of Warcraft team released a statement yesterday and promised to remove references that are not appropriate to be removed from the game soon.
      Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick also issued a statement, where he called the company's initial responses to the lawsuit and employee concerns "tone-deaf." You can read the full statement here.
      Activision Blizzard employees have now responded to Bobby Kotick's statement via IGN and are organizing a walkout protest today.
      Here is their response:
      Activision Blizzard Employees' Response to Bobby Kotick's Statement
      On the evening before our employee walkout, Activision Blizzard leadership released a statement apologizing for their harmful responses to last week's DFEH lawsuit. While we are pleased to see that our collective voices -- including an open letter with thousands of signatures from current employees -- have convinced leadership to change the tone of their communications, this response fails to address critical elements at the heart of employee concerns.
      Activision Blizzard's response did not address the following:
      - The end of forced arbitration for all employees.
      - Worker participation in oversight of hiring and promotion policies.
      - The need for greater pay transparency and to ensure equality.
      - Employee selection of a third party to audit HR and other company processes.
      Today's walkout will demonstrate that this is not a one-time event that our leaders can ignore. We will not return to silence; we will not be placated by the same processes that led us to this point.
      This is the beginning of an enduring movement in favor of better labor conditions for all employees, especially women, in particular women of color and transgender women, nonbinary people, and other marginalized groups.
      We expect a prompt response and a commitment to action from leadership on the points enumerated above and look forward to maintaining a constructive dialogue on how to build a better Activision Blizzard for all employees.
      Today, we stand up for a chance. Tomorrow and beyond, we will be the change.

      If you have spare Anima, seek out Anima Exchange Specialist To'kul, a new NPC in Oribos that lets you exchange Anima for various goods.
      To'kul sells the following items for Reservoir Anima:
      Korthite Crystal Geode -- contains 5 Korthite Crystal and costs 25,000 Reservoir Anima. Shipment of Heavy Callous Hide -- contains 20 Heavy Callous Hide and costs 7,500 Reservoir Anima. Shipment of Elethium Ore -- contains 20 Elethium Ore and costs 7,500 Reservoir Anima. Shipment of Lightless Silk -- contains 20 Lightless Silk and costs 7,500 Reservoir Anima. This NPC must have been added to the game recently. Screenshot courtesy of absolis.

      The World Quest for Fathom Dweller is currently available on US servers. Check out how to summon Kosumoth the Hungering and get the mount!
      Here's how the mount looks like in the game.

      First, you must unlock the quest for it to become visible on the map. Below, we posted all the steps that you need to complete to unlock the quest for the mount.
      First, download a WoW Addon that shows you coordinates to figure out where you are and where you need to be. Something like MapCoords or TomTom will do. Head to Broken Shore 37/71 and talk to Drak'thul. Head to 57/52 and enter the Musty Cave. Click on the Mound of Dirt that is hard to notice. You will receive Weathered Relic. Return to 37/71 and talk to Drak'thul again and go through all his dialog options. Now comes the more difficult part. You must click on 10 Hungering Orbs in the exact order. If another player clicks on them, it takes approximately 20 minutes for them to become clickable again, so they have a cooldown. Here are coords for all the Hungering Orbs: Azsuna: 37/37: The first orb is located in a secret cave behind the tree. Stormheim: 33/75: The second orb is located in a cave where Kangaxx is. Val'sharah 41/80 Find another secret cave located inside a tree. The third orb is guarded by an Elemental.  Broken Shore 31/76: You will find an underwater cave that hides the fourth orb. Azsuna 59/12: Behind the crystals is yet another secret cave. The fifth orb is located on the ground next to a broken table. Stormheim 67/14: Near the underwater shark is a crevice that leads to a cave that contains the sixth orb. Try to avoid the steams, as they deal high damage. This orb may be the most difficult for you to get. Highmountain 52/36: Enter the Haglands and follow the path to your right. Above halfway down (55/36), you want to jump down to a ledge with a cave. Do not enter the first cave since it's a decoy. Instead, turn right and head to the actual cave to find the seventh orb. Azsuna 54/26: Under the bushes near a tree is another secret cave. The eighth orb is somewhat hidden, too, located in a bush near a pillar inside the cave. Broken Isles World Map 50/91: Find underwater wreckage to get through a secret cave. This one is hard to explain, so we advise you to check out MadSeasonShow's video (timestamp). You will find the ninth orb to your right. Broken Shore 37/71: Head back to Drak'thul and click the final orb on the table behind him. After you click it, the DANGER: Kosumoth the Hungering World Quest spawns at 46/49 on the Broken Isles World Map. Kill Kosumoth to receive Fathom Dweller. Note that you have a chance to get the Hungering Claw instead of the mount. It just so happens that the reward is the mount right now. Check out the video guide by MadSeasonShow for more details!

      Gitoff speed-cleared Torghast Layer 12 in 2 minutes and 56 seconds.
      While most players focus on getting a Flawless Score in Torghast, Gitoff tried something different and managed to kill the Floor 5 on the highest difficulty under 3 minutes on their Demon Hunter.
