The Barrens Warfront: Incredible Full Concept Art by Handclaw

Recommended Posts

While Warfronts didn't exactly take the World of Warcraft by storm, there was something to the idea. Arist Arthur "Handclaw" Lorenz, who has already contributed hundreds of race-themed class armor sets that everyone loved (including a nice exclusive DK Ogre one for Icy Veins), has finished a long-running project where he envisioned a new Warfront taking place in the Barrens! We have Tauren facing off against Dwarves, with weapon concepts, siege machines, mounts and, of course, Warfront armor sets for both races! We get 24 new armor set looks, a ridiculous amount of weapons, sketches and so much more. We also recently talked to Handclaw on everything art and class armor related, so you can check that interview here as well.

Let's start with what Handclaw is best known for, the armor sets, as both races get all armor types covered, as well as the Warfront tiers as well.

You can really feed the race identities in those sets, and they're also much more detailed than the class sets we've seen already. Then it's on to the other thing all players always want more of, mounts!

But that's not all, as the project also covered a whopping 71 weapon concepts for both Dwarven and Tauren sides!

There's an incredible amount more to check out in the full project over at Handclaw's artstation, including siege weaponry, many more weapon sketches, a centaur HD model update and much more, so definitely head on over there and enjoy the concept art overload! And once again hats off to Handclaw, as he'*filtered* this one out of the park with more amazing work, and definitely surpassed himself on the detail level of each piece, so thanks a lot to him!

“he'*filtered* this one out of the park”. “he’s” followed by “hit” is triggering the bad-word filter ?

      7thLetter created a storytelling submission for BlizzConline dubbed "Vengeance for Teldrassil." Unfortunately, it got denied, but the creator uploaded it to YouTube for everyone to enjoy!
      In the short video, we see the Night Elves attack the Horde for what happened to Teldrassil in Battle for Azeroth. We won't go into any more spoilers, so make sure to watch the video yourself!

      It's been a while since we checked in on the Covenant class and spec distribution from wowranks.io, with a lot more Renown opening up, new Soulbinds and Conduits and some balancing passes as well pushing certain specs towards different Covenants.
      The overall rankings haven't really changed, but the Night Fae lead has expanded since last we checked, taking up 35% of the population, as Necrolords languish at the bottom with only 15%. The numbers are also quite a bit higher since we checked a couple of months ago, as over 2.5 million new characters have been registered.

      But the much more interesting data lies with the classes and specs, as we take a look at the Covenant distribution for each of them! As usual Druids are extremely Night Fae-heavy, with 83% of the shapeshifters choosing the Ardenweald as their home, with Hunters and Mages in close second for the Fae, with 73% and 69%, respectively. For the Kyrian the Paladins are holding the line, coming in at 75%,  with Warriors and Priest representing the Venthyr most with only 57/ 47%. The Necrolords get an eclectic combo with Death Knights and Shamans, coming in at 62% and 52%.
      And the least represented Covenant/spec combos are definitely Necrolord Demon Hunters and Paladins, both coming in around 2%...
      Here's the full data:
        
        
        


      You can also head on over to wowranks.io for even more different ways to look over all the data.

      Bound Shadehound is a new mount obtainable in Patch 9.0.5 that will work in the Maw!
      All mounts will work in the Maw in Patch 9.1, but you will be limited to mounts that specifically work in the zone until then.
      Currently, on live servers, you either have to complete Layer 8 of the Twisting Corridors to get Corridor Creeper or get the other one (Mawsworn Soulhunter) from "The Hunt: Shadehound" events in the Maw. Luckily, the third and latest addition will be the easiest to obtain. You will be able to forge the mount by collecting Stygia Dust and Silver in the Maw. The new activity is called Stygia Crafting. Here's how the mount looks like in the game.
      Bound Shadehound
      "Created by deciphering and performing powerful runic magic, this Shadehound is bound to its creator."

      Power Infusion has recently been a hot topic in the community, with the logs being heavily affected by it, as many non-Priest specs are getting a lot of buffs during fights to boost their overall DPS. There's even some drama surrounding who gets the buff, and Shadow Priests not wanting to give it away, which we've recently talked about, but today there's at least a solution to the logs part of the issue.
      Warcraft Logs have added markers for Power Infusion and Innervate, so you can now see not only if a player received one of these buffs during a fight, but also how many! 

      Warcraft Logs creator Kihra explains in detail:
      This should make it a lot easier to track individual player performances and for players to improve through the logs, as it is now clearer whether someone is just outdpsing/outhealing you because they're playing better, or if they just got a bunch of external buffs!

      The half orc half ogre Mok'Nathal finally get some love, as Lonely Road pictures made some concepts for the race! Rexxar's kind don't get much attention in WoW, but they will be featured in an upcoming cinematic by Lonely Road and so they got some pretty cool models ready!
      One of the characters above is having way too much fun and might just be too cool for Wow. Plenty of players would have preferred this particular race to the slightly more generic mag'har we actually got (although straight-backs are always welcome), so we can hopefully see more of them in the future and give those tauren some size competition!
      Some great work by Lonely Road!
