Recommended Posts

As an added bonus at the end of the Blizzard section at the gamescom opening night, we also got the Shadowlands release date and it's quite a bit earlier than anyone thought! October 26th to the 27th is the official release date, depending on where you are in the world, and you can check out the world release map and trailer below!

You can find out everything about Shadowlands in our guides and previews right here, from Torghast, the Covenants, Class Changes and a lot more

    Beyond Azeroth’s shattered sky, a realm of infinite afterlives awaits: the Shadowlands, where mortal souls go to reckon with their pasts, discover new purpose . . . or suffer an eternity of torment. Seize your destiny beginning October 27.

    Upon entering the Shadowlands, Azeroth’s champions will encounter an otherworld in disarray. Virtuous souls are being wrongfully cast into the eternal darkness of the Maw, while the Covenants—powerful factions who hold dominion over the afterlife’s disparate realms—face ruin and strife as the flow of the Shadowlands’ essential anima mysteriously dwindles. As an ancient, long-bound evil gathers the strength to break its chains, players must carve their path through the uncharted reaches of the beyond, forge a pact with the Covenant that most aligns with their own principles and purpose—and ultimately restore balance to the hereafter.

    Join the Global Launch

    World of Warcraft’s next expansion will launch in the Americas, Europe, Taiwan, Korea, and Australia/New Zealand at the same time. Wherever you live and whatever path you choose to take, you can be part of one global adventure beyond the shattered sky.

    Just so you know, the beta testers do not get the latest build of the game, the internal testers have that.

    You'd think there would be a month or so to play with a full-power cloak and last corruption rotation befire it is gone, and Blizzard polishes the expansion, but nope. Gone the moment you hit 125.

    The pre-patch isn't gonna last too long either, 1 month at most, so the max upgraded cloak will be there for at least 3 to 4 weeks

        It seems a new round of beta invites has arrived, or Blizzard has amped up the intensity of the handing out of access, as many players have noticed and encouraged other to check their inboxes on reddit! The number of players reporting getting an invite indicates this is a particularly large wave. In case you also just got into the beta, you can check out our Shadowlands guides to get a better grip on all the content available.
        Also, as noticed by twitter user @DoumStorm, also check your launcher first, as the mails tend to be slower than the invites themselves!
        Here are some of the responses to getting the key, with some interesting takes:

        This week's beta class changes appear to be starting and Warriors get a change to a powerful legendary item, as the Mishapen Mirror gets nerfed. We recently talked about this legendary in particular in out Protection Warrior spec highlights, and it's was one of two top pics for the spec.
        September 30 (source)
        Hello.
        In this week’s build of the Shadowlands Beta, the Misshapen Mirror legendary has been changed. It now increases Spell Reflect duration by 60% and only affects your nearest ally.
        Previously, this legendary was proving to be stronger than intended.
        Thank you very much for your feedback.

        Death Knights get two Covenant abilities changes this week on the Beta, as Abomination Limb and Shackle the Unworthy get target caps, buffs and more.
        September 30 (source)
        In this week’s new build of the Shadowlands Beta, we’ve updated two covenant abilities, Abomination Limb and Shackle the Unworthy.
        Abomination Limb has been target capped at 5, and its damage has increased by 15%. The grip has also been updated so it may only pull the same target every 4 seconds. This change was made to prevent it from encouraging the Death Knight to repeatedly walk out of range and then pull the same target.
        We’ve also added a new functionality to the ability that grants Bone Shield charges, Rime, or Runic Corruption (based on spec) the first time the Limb pulls an enemy (this only occurs once). We hope this change will broaden the usage of the ability outside of PvP.
        Shackle the Unworthy has had its damage increased by 15%, but no longer has its cooldown reduced when spending runes. Instead of the cooldown reduction, it now works as follows: “While Shackle the Unworthy is active on an enemy, your direct-damage attacks that spend runes have a 50% chance to spread Shackle the Unworthy to a nearby enemy”.
        We hope this change gives the ability a more active playstyle and creates more situations where it might be more useful than its previous iteration.
        Thanks for the continued feedback, and we look forward to your thoughts on these recent changes.

        No Assassination changes this week either, as Outlaw gets the focus, with Blade Flurry buffs and more.
        September 30 (source)
        In this week’s build of the Shadowlands Beta, we have some notable changes for Outlaw Rogues.
        Since both Assassination and Subtlety can apply poisons in AoE relatively easily, we want Outlaw to have access to similar utility. As such, Blade Flurry hits can now apply poisons to any enemies hit.
        We’ve also changed the Between the Eyes debuff. It no longer gives you increased Critical Hit Damage against the target; it now gives you increased Critical Strike Chance against the target. This allows Blade Flurry to spread the damage bonus of this debuff to secondary target.
        Thanks again for your testing and feedback!

        Blizzard have posted that Covenant tuning is currently underway on the Shadowlands beta, to inform players that there may be some big number changes coming to being certain abilities closer to their counterparts.
        Covenant Tuning (source)
        In today’s updated build of the Shadowlands Beta, testers will see a snapshot of the the process of tuning several Shadowlands systems, which is underway. We’re in the midst of recalibrating the throughput of several Covenant abilities, and while in some cases the magnitude of the change may feel large, it’s necessary to bring outlier abilities in-line with our targets, so that players can make more accurate comparisons between abilities.
        Thank you for all of your help as we iterate on these abilities based on your feedback.
