The Kargath Blade Fist one was possibly the most Metal Thing you ever could see on youtube.    But then his in-game character was comedic and boneheaded (dying words: "And that's....100.").   Hopefully they don't repeat that.

Cut content, he was originally intended to run away and appear later. 

Anyway, this looks interesting, although we will only get to see a handful of known characters.

Eh, they've always been way cooler than what's ingame. The Emperor was an incredible character in the series, and ingame he was somethingsomethingtreesgrowing? Khadgar was given an amazing choice before Legion, and within Legion itself his role was to pop up and throw a pun around.

That's why I like them personally. Warcraft has always been cartoonish, but it mixes it with deeper (if not deep-deep) stuff. These shorts discard the cartoon and give you a raw shot of the power running beneath it. The savagery of Kargath, the turmoil of the Emperor and the wry heroism of Khadgar.

Smaller complaint, but why does the Kyrian chick between Draka and the Winter Queen look so mannish?

Because she is STERN and STRONG and will take NO NONSENSE. 

Or possibly because she's the Kyrian's contribution to representation.

I never knew that. Add that to the list of great things Warlords never gave itself time to finish.

      Are you wondering how your spec performs in Mythic+? Here's a tier list with all specializations!
      DISCLAIMER
      In this article, we are 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 it 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). Spec Tier List for Mythic+
      S-Tier
      Fire Mage - 2.02 ratio Balance Druid - 1.75 ratio Outlaw Rogue - 1.74 ratio Vengeance Demon Hunter - 1.64 ratio A-Tier
      Holy Paladin - 1.37 ratio Restoration Shaman - 1.36 ratio Windwalker Monk - 1.33 ratio Marksmanship Hunter - 1.28 ratio Brewmaster Monk - 1.15 ratio Fury Warrior - 1.14 ratio Discipline Priest - 1.08 ratio Affliction Warlock - 1.08 ratio B-Tier
      Guardian Druid - 0.89 ratio Unholy Death Knight - 0.75 ratio Shadow Priest - 0.73 ratio Havoc Demon Hunter - 0.72 ratio Restoration Druid - 0.71 ratio Blood Death Knight - 0.61 ratio Protection Paladin - 0.53 ratio Holy Priest - 0.5 ratio Elemental Shaman - 0.5 ratio C-Tier
      Enhancement Shaman - 0.47 ratio Protection Warrior - 0.41 ratio Mistweaver Monk - 0.41 ratio Feral Druid - 0.41 ratio Survival Hunter - 0.39 ratio Destruction Warlock - 0.39 ratio Frost Mage - 0.37 ratio Retribution Paladin - 0.35 ratio Assassination Rogue - 0.35 ratio Frost Death Knight - 0.31 ratio Subtlety Rogue - 0.31 ratio Arcane Mage - 0.31 ratio Arms Warrior - 0.30 ratio Demonology Warlock - 0.28 ratio Beast Mastery Hunter - 0.19 ratio

      We finally have 100 Alliance guilds that have taken down Sire Denathrius and cleared Castle Nathria on Mythic difficulty, which means cross-realm Mythic is on its way!
      The final kill occurred around 5:30 CET today, and since the cross-realm feature arrives on the next reset after the 100th kill it might be available to EU players today (this is the very same timing as the Ny'alotha 100th Alliance kill and it was available the same day in EU then, but there were some server issues around that time so we're not 100% sure), while US/OC players might have to wait until their next Tuesday reset. The Hall of Fame: Sire Denathrius (Alliance) achievement and Famed Slayer of Denatrius titles should still be available until the next reset (again, most likely only of US/OC players, given the timing).
      Proud Manlets was the final guild to claim one of the Hall of Fame spots on the Alliance side, and it's taken 29 days for the blue team to catch up to the red.


      You can check out the full Hall of Fame here.
      Thanks to NageK for spotting the final kill!

      Here's another Mythic+ non-meta victory, with a controller using tank finishing up the achievement in the worst Covenant for the spec in M+, in PUGs!
      We look at the log rankings, tier lists and various other optimizations and standings a lot here, so it's also important to point out that you really can get most non-highest end content done with any spec you want. Berub proved this and then some, as they got KSM while tanking as a Blood Death Knight Night Fae, the worst Covenant for M+ for the spec AND used a controller while doing it! And the best part? The reason Berub chose Night Fae is because of the armor looks!

      And while many others have completed KSM with off-meta specs, and some did with a controller as well, the tank + worst Covenant + controller part is especially impressive, and Berub didn't quite mention the control method to the groups, or those runs probably never would have happened at all. Here are some comments from the journey:
      Hopefully examples like this encourage players to try new things and now be quite as limited by the meta, despite it being pretty hard to get into groups, especially for DPS.

      This week's world boss is Mortanis and you can find him in Maldraxxus.
      Mortanis
      One of the most studied necromancers of the House of Rituals, Mortanis has been working tirelessly on a means of transforming himself into a more powerful form. Now, he is only a few moments from succeeding.

      Mortanis drops Item Level 207 loot along with various Legendary Power recipes and Conduits. Do not forget to pick the Renown weekly quest for 1,000 Anima before killing Mortanis. We are listing the full loot table below. 

      Memory of Fujieda (Warrior Legendary Power) Memory of Keefer (Monk Legendary Power) Memory of a Guile Charm (Rogue Legendary Power) Band of the Risen Bonelord (Ring) Mortanis's Ribcage (Mail Chest) Bone Crushing Vicegrips (Mail Gloves) Bone-Cleated Footpads (Leather Feet) Spine Crawler Waistcord (Cloth Belt) Shoulderblade Vambraces (Plate Wrists)

      There seem to be some new issues with the EU authentication servers, as many players are unable to log in. So if you're having trouble playing at the moment, don't worry, it's not just you:

      Anyone having issues loggin in (EU)? fix the servers Blizzard have also responded on the matter, but it seems to still be ongoing:
      So we'll just have to wait a bit more, although the issue has been persisting for about an hour now.
