Things to Do Before Shadowlands Goes Live

Recommended Posts

6GfmhZD.jpg

With a few months of BfA still left, we compiled a list of things to do in the game before they get removed or changed when Shadowlands hits. Read on for details.

1. Ahead of the Curve: N'Zoth the CorruptorAhead of the Curve: N'Zoth the Corruptor

Assemble a group and defeat N'Zoth on Heroic difficulty. Uncorrupted VoidwingUncorrupted Voidwing will become unobtainable when Shadowlands goes live.

2. Mythic Season 4 Title & Mount

If you want to get the Awakened MindborerAwakened Mindborer, you must earn the Battle for Azeroth Keystone Master: Season FourBattle for Azeroth Keystone Master: Season Four before the release of Shadowlands. To do this, simply, complete all Battle for Azeroth Season 4 dungeons at Mythic Level 15 or higher, within the time limit.

If you can't get the mount, you can at least try getting the Awakened title that is earned by completing all Battle for Azeroth Season 4 dungeons at Mythic Level 10 or higher, within the time limit (Battle for Azeroth Keystone Conqueror: Season FourBattle for Azeroth Keystone Conqueror: Season Four).

3. Phenomenal Cosmic PowerPhenomenal Cosmic Power Achievement

Certain Essences tied to Mythic Season 4 will become unattainable when the Season ends, making it impossible to earn the Phenomenal Cosmic PowerPhenomenal Cosmic Power and the Azeroth's Champion title.

4. Save Up 5 Million Gold for the Reins of the Mighty Caravan BrutosaurMighty Caravan Brutosaur

Blizzard will be removing the Reins of the Mighty Caravan BrutosaurMighty Caravan Brutosaur in Shadowlands from the vendor, so now would be the ideal time to start making some serious gold when you want the mount. Chances are you will not be able to get it from the Black Market Auction House when it becomes even rarer to get.

Hello! Yes. About that …

Like all dinosaurs, the Reins of the Mighty Caravan BrutosaurMighty Caravan Brutosaur's days are numbered. I can confirm that when Shadowlands goes live, the shady vendors Talutu and Tricky Nick will cease selling it. Their other offerings – the Lost PlatysaurLost Platysaur pet and the Reins of the Palehide DirehornPalehide Direhorn mount, will remain available for purchase.

We will make sure that the unforgettable Brutosaur mount is added to the lists of possible items that are sold in the Black Market Auction Houses. And of course, this new Achievement "Conspicuous Consumption" is a Feat of Strength, so as such things go, it's not actually very conspicuous.

The Mighty Caravan Brutosaur comes with an Auctioneer and a premium price tag! Be ready to spend up to 5,000,000 Gold to get it!

5. Mythic Jaina Mount

The drop chance of Glacial TidestormGlacial Tidestorm will drastically decrease and the mount will become rare once Shadowlands is out.

As a result, Blizzard hotfixed Mythic Jaina so that she drops 2 Glacial TidestormGlacial Tidestorm mounts on live servers on February 14.

Dungeons and Raids

  • Battle of Dazar' alor
    • Lady Jaina Proudmoore now drops 2 Glacial TidestormGlacial Tidestorm mounts (was 1) when defeated on Mythic difficulty.
  • Ny' alotha, the Waking City
    • N'Zoth the Corruptor now drops 2 Ny'alotha Allseer Ny'alotha Allseer mounts (was 1) when defeated on Mythic difficulty.
      • With these mounts becoming quite rare once Shadowlands comes out, taking 20 weeks or more for a full Mythic raid group to get the mounts felt excessive.

6. Mythic N'Zoth Mount

The same applies to Ny'alotha Allseer Ny'alotha Allseer that drops from N'Zoth on Mythic difficulty on live servers. You can get two per run, and the drop chance will decrease when the new expansion is live.

7. Mythic Season 4 Elite PvP Armor Sets

The Elite Notorious Gladiator's Armor appearances are gated behind reaching various ranks in the ongoing PvP Season. They are going away with the end of PvP Season 4. There are four sets in total (Cloth, Leather, Mail, and Plate).

8. Level Up a Demon Hunter & Death Knight

Both Demon Hunters and Death Knights start at level 10 in Shadowlands, instead of 98 and 55 respectively, so it would be a good idea to level them up right now instead of waiting.

9. Battle for Azeroth PvP Achievements

The Conqueror of Azeroth Conqueror of Azeroth and Servant of N'Zoth Servant of N'Zoth achievements will also be harder to get when there are fewer players playing BfA content in Shadowlands, as pointed out by Redditor cybishop3.

10. Mythic+ Mounts

Mounts like Sharkbait's Favorite Crackers Sharkbait's Favorite Crackers from Freehold, Mummified Raptor Skull Mummified Raptor Skull from King's Rest, and Underrot Crawg Harness Underrot Crawg Harness from the Underrot will be harder to get, because you won't be able to farm them by doing low keystone runs and your chances will be reduced to one per week. Thanks gnotagnelfbutagnome for adding this.

I have have been playing this game for around 11 years and have rolled well over 20 or more toons to max level and I don't believe I have ever had more then 300,000 gold on a server ever lol How did Blizzard expect people to save 5 million for that Brutosaur in the 1 year it was available? I really wish they would stop making awesome stuff like this a once in a lifetime thing only a handful of people will ever obtain and make more interesting stuff everyone can enjoy

Mostly those who are either aggressively trading on AH or selling paid runs for gold. There is a lot of this trash on LFG these days, that in turn heavily reduced number of "free" runs and increased average requirements for an invite (more people buying those "Curve runs" = more groups demanding that you have it already). At least they are banning offers for cash, so there is way less of that, but gold runs are allowed. Also, WoW token has ruined the economy and inflated prices. Mounts like brutosaur serve as a gold sink, although they mainly annoy people playing normally, since that amount of gold isn't an issue for all these sellers. Sucks it's going away, it could have served as something one could slowly work towards to, and they've never removed similar mounts before.

That's something at least, though prices will likely skyrocket.

when Shadowlands releases, BFA will have been out for about 2 years, lets say thats 720 days, thats 6945g per day, if you cant make that in a day, then the mount isnt for you.

Did most of those already listed with the exception of a small handful of things I really don't care to chase after.  Decided to go and get caught up in Guild Wars 2 storyline and play around with a few Elite Specializations.   I'll wait till see what the pre-patch events will be like to actually focus again on WoW.  But as of now I'm a bit burned out atm and just need a refresher change of pace for the time being.

People who know how to make a lot of gold will already have this mount. Bidders for BMAH will be those of us with less gold. I doubt the price will go up.

Brawler's Club will also probably end its current season, and maybe should be on that list? I missed one season's mount because none of the news sources included it and I had forgotten to go back.

      The Corruption Effects Vendor resets in about 19 hours as of writing this post, bringing with it a new batch of Preserved Contaminants that can be purchased for Echoes of Ny'alotha. The upcoming rotation includes Rank 3 Twisted Appendage and Expedient.
      Did You Know?
      The Corruption system will be removed in the Shadowlands pre-patch. Blizzard pushed a hotfix to live servers that acts as a cap for Corruption. If your character has more than 200 Corruption equipped, they will die in a matter of seconds (Inescapable Consequences). List of Preserved Contaminants on Sale Through August 14th
      When will MOTHER reset in my region? Check out the countdown here!
      Ineffable Truth (Rank 1 // 12 Corruption) for 3,300 Echoes of Ny'alotha Your Spells and Abilities have a chance to show you the Ineffable Truth, increasing the rate your cooldowns recover by 30% for 10 seconds. Honed Mind (Rank 1 // 15 Corruption) for 4,125 Echoes of Ny'alotha Your spells and abilities have a chance to increase your Mastery by 392 for 10 seconds. Strikethrough (Rank 2 // 15 Corruption) for 4,125 Echoes of Ny'alotha Increases the damage and healing you deal with Critical Strikes by 3%. Masterful (Rank 2 // 15 Corruption) for 4,125 Echoes of Ny'alotha Increases the amount of Mastery you gain from all sources by 9%. Twisted Appendage (Rank 3 // 66 Corruption) for 13,200 Echoes of Ny'alotha Your attacks have a chance to spawn a tentacle which Mind Flays your target for Shadow damage every second for 10 seconds.

      Sinrunner Reins is a new and probably secret mount that you can obtain in Shadowlands.
      We currently do not know what happened to good Old Blanchy after it died back in Westfall, but the mount has a Venthyr hue to it, so we speculate that its soul ended up in Revendreth for some reason.
      Sinrunner Reins teaches you Sinrunner Blanchy, so we know for sure it is the same horse we previously encoutered, but what sins did Blanchy commit remains to be seen.
      Other datamined spells and items tied to the mount and the NPC that you need to interact with to get it are:
      Blanket for Blanchy (DNT) requires Comfortable Saddle Blanket "A soft and comfortable blanket for regulating body temperature." Blanchy Horseshoes (DNT) > Requires 4 Sturdy Horseshoes "Protective footwear for horse-like creatures." Groomed Blanchy (DNT) > Requires Grooming Brush "A circular motion with the stiff bristled brush removes and soothes itches." Watered Blanchy (DNT) > Requires Bucket of Clean Water "Guaranteed to quench the greatest thirst." Apples for Blanchy (DNT) indicates that you will need three Dredhollow Apple to create Sinrunner Reins, which seems to be the final step in getting the mount.
      Based on the number of items you must acquire, we think the mount will be tied to some secret, where you must brush the horse, provide it with a blanket, clean water, and so on.
      Here's how the mount looks like in the game.

      Some rumors were circulating about the removal of Herald of the Titans in Shadowlands after the level squish. Luckily, we're able to confirm the achievement is there, but the requirements were squished down too.
      If you want to get the Herald of Titans achievement in Shadowlands before the squish on live servers, you must be at level 80 and have nobody in the raid wear items higher than item level 100. With the Shadowlands level squish, you will need to defeat Algalon at level 30 wearing items no higher than item level 35.
      Herald of the Titans in Visions of N'Zoth Herald of the Titans in the Shadowlands Pre-Patch Herald of the Titans - Defeat Algalon the Observer at level 80 without anyone in the raid wearing items higher than Item Level 100. Herald of the Titans - Defeat Algalon the Observer at level 30 without anyone in the raid wearing items higher than Item Level 35.

      Niya, one of the Soulbinds available to members of the Night Fae Covenant, comes with an interesting Soulbind trait that mimics the Shadowmeld Night Elf racial.
      If you decide to join the Night Fae Covenant, you will gain access to the Soulshape Signature Ability, which increases your Movement Speed by 50% and teleports you 15 yards forward on a short cooldown.
      Niya, one of the Night Fae Soulbinds, comes with the Sylvari Mantle that conceals you when Soulshape ends until you move, so it acts pretty much like the Shadowmeld, the Night Elf racial.
      Other Soulbind traits that you can get through Niya include:
      Row 1: Stay on the Move (on the same row with Sylvari Mantle) Row 4: Niya's Tools: Burrs // Niya's Tools: Poison // Niya's Tools: Herbs Row 7: Care Package // Swift Patrol Row 8: Grove Invigoration Note that you can only pick one Soulbind trait per row.
      Here's Niya's full Soulbind Path.
