There are a whole lot of DPS specs to cover, so we've separated our guide writers opinions on their performance in the Shadowlands from our usual pre-patch DPS rankings, as there was just too much to cover in one place. Each of our writers will go over the general situation for their respective spec or specs in the Shadowlands, to give you a better idea of what the changes might do to them, so let's get started.
You can check out tank and healer spec overviews here and here.

So there you have it, the overall state of the specs going into Shadowlands. You can soon read a lot more about all the changes and how each plays, as our guides are going to be updated very soon (or may already have been as you're reading this)! As a very general recommendation we'd still say just play the spec you're most comfortable/have the most fun with, as tuning will affect things many times throughout the expansion.
You can also check out tank and healer spec overviews here and here and the final pre-patch DPS rankings coming soon.
Here's an easy way to skip from Kologarn to General Vezzax in Ulduar as a Demon Hunter, thanks to gliding.
After defeating Kologarn, Demon Hunters can easily skip from "The Shattered Walkway" area to "The Descent into Madness" in Ulduar, where General Vezzax is located.
Cobblenation has shared the skip, and we've reached out to the OP to clarify, and you need to kill are Flame Leviathan, XT, Kologarn, and General Vezzsx to engage Yogg-Saron, which makes farming of Mimiron’s Head easier than ever!
If you have a ton of alts, you will definitely appreciate a macro that removes all quests from your quest log with the single click of a button.
Scholle_0 created a macro that easily removes all quests from your quest log! It's handy if you have many alts and want to have an empty quest log before heading into the Shadowlands.
Type /m in the chat window, create a new macro and paste the following code.
/run for i=1,C_QuestLog.GetNumQuestLogEntries() do C_QuestLog.SetSelectedQuest(C_QuestLog.GetInfo(i).questID); C_QuestLog.SetAbandonQuest(); C_QuestLog.AbandonQuest() end; Save the macro, press the button, and voila!
The author also created an addon called Abandon All Quests if you don't want to use any macros!
The pre-patch event ends 1 hour before Shadowlands goes live and this is your last chance to get the 34-slot bag, the pet, or Accursed Keepsake before they get removed from the game permanently.
You don't need to buy Shadowlands to participate in the event! The only requirement is having a max-level character. You can find a list of maps with all the rares here.
Papa's Mint Condition Bag is a 34-slot bag that drops from Bronjahm, an Elite in Icecrown that you can find at 71,38. He's up only once every 200 minutes, and the drop chance is small, so it will take a while before you get your bag. Check out this site to see when Bronjahm spawns next. Putrid Geist is a battle pet that you can purchase for 20 Argent Commendations, a currency from daily quests in Icecrown. Catch-up gear of Item Level 100, on par with Normal difficulty Ny'alotha, can be purchased for 15 Argent Commendations, each from quartermasters in Stormwind and Orgrimmar. If you want to purchase the whole set, you will need to gather 135 Argent Commendations. Icecrown Elites drop Item Level 110 gear, and Blizzard reduced the timer to 10 minutes. Accursed Keepsake is an upgraded Haunted Memento that has a small chance to drop from any Icecrown Elite. It spawns a ghost that follows you when you have the item in your inventory. Both items interact with each other. For more details, check out our pre-patch event guide!
Blizzard has hotfixed a debuff to the game that prevents you from gaining an early advantage in the Maw.
Eye of the Jailer has been hotfixed into the game recently, and the debuff decreases Stygia and Ve'nari Reputation gains by 100%. It's probably been implemented to prevent players from gaining an unfair advantage in the Shadowlands endgame zone, similar to how Mythic dungeons, Torghast, and the first weekly Renown quest will only become available after reset in each region.
Ve'nari offers two weekly quests that reward 425 Stygia and reputation, and you won't be able to gain Stygia or reputation with her until after the reset.
