      He's finally done it! That elusive archaeology sword has popped up today and many fragments were spent getting it, and then getting it completed. The final sword took about 110 archaeology solves, which is pretty good considering. This means that DesMephisto has gathered 100% of the currently obtainable 1-handed swords in the game, adding to his 100% of all available Warrior plate transmogs! As we've mentioned before, there's is a small technicality here, with the missing sword from the Headless Horseman, which won't be available until October 18th. But as that will become available after the pre-patch hits (or won't considering how slow the patch is to arrive), all the new Shadowlands swords will be put into the database, bringing the total down from 100%. But since it is all currently available swords, we can let that one slide!
      And here's the fateful moment itself, when the project popped up, but it took quite a while to gather all the fragments needed to actually solve it:

      And so here's the actual solve itself, when the number really went to 100%:

      Big congrats on getting it all done before the pre-patch hits!

      Blizzard talks about the redesigned character creation screen, Druids being able to customize their forms separately in the Barber Shop, and more, in the official preview of character customization options coming in the Shadowlands pre-patch.
      (Source)
      With the Shadowlands pre-expansion patch, you’ll have hundreds of new character customization options available at your fingertips to make characters uniquely yours. Carve your human’s face with battle scars, adorn your blood elves in delicate armlets and wristbands skillfully forged by Silvermoon’s metalsmiths, and give your worgen glowing eyes or vertical-slit pupils to reflect the beast within.
      NEW CHARACTER SELECTION SCREEN
      One of the first things you’ll notice is the character creation screen has been completely remade, with race portraits on either side of the screen and class icons displayed along the bottom. When you select a class, the character displayed springs into action with a flashy animation that captures the essence of the class—Rogues Shadowstep across the screen and unleash a Fan of Knives, Shaman make the ground around them erupt with the fury of the elements, and Priests levitate toward the heavens to embrace the Light.
      Across the board, races will have access to new character customization options including skin tones, hairstyles, and eye colors. Certain races will be able to enhance their look beyond the basics with unique options such as tattoos, jewelry, beards, scars, or flowers to ornament their hair.
      On the character creation screen, you’ll be able to more intuitively navigate between different looks with new drop-down menus. Swatches displaying color choices for eye and skin tones will appear alongside the option number, so instead of needing to scroll between different appearances you’ll be able to quickly click between specific eye and skin tone options. All other cosmetic choices are tied to a name in the drop-down menu to give you a better idea of the selection before you preview it, and will make it easier for you to remember your favorite choices.

      YOUR NAME, YOUR PURPOSE
      When you’re ready to finalize your character, you’ll need to pick out a name. Now you can see if a name is available as soon as you type it into the field at the top of the screen; a green checkmark means you’re good to go, while a red cross means it’s unavailable and you’ll need to try a new variation or new name. Many customization options are no longer dependent on other selections. Previously, a selected hair color would affect the color of facial tattoos or a hair color would determine eye color. Now, you can choose these independently of one another. Additionally, worgen will now be able to change the appearance of their worgen and human forms independently. Simply click on the portrait options at the top right of the screen to access your other half’s customization options.
      CUT AND COLOR CHANGE
      You can freshen up your look during your adventures at any time with the new customizations by visiting any Barber. In addition to customizing your appearance, you can also change the gender of your character at the barber.

      Druids can change their shapeshift appearances at the Barber as well. Now you can choose between forms previously tied to cosmetic glyphs (now called Marks in Shadowlands) and forms previously were restricted due to your characters’ hair or fur color. You’ll also be able to choose between your unlocked account-wide Legion Artifact appearances and the fiery Cat Form from Fandral’s Flamescythe if you have collected the weapon from Firelands on Normal, Heroic, or Timewalking difficulties.
      The new customization changes in the character creation screen and Barber will become available once the Shadowlands pre-expansion patch goes live. Which customization changes are you most looking forward to use to freshen up your current character or to make a new one?

      Torghast was unavailable for a while, and Blizzard has made some changes to the entrance of the Tower this week on Beta.
      You will no longer need to queue up for Torghast and the individual wings separately. Instead, you will directly teleport to the entrance chamber that has been reworked to include other players.

      A Meeting Stone has been added to Torghast, so that party members can quickly summon each other.

      Here is how the Torghast chamber map looks like in the game. Wings that are currently available are highlighted with an icon.

      You still need to queue up for each wing and the "endless" Twisting Corridors Mode separately.

      Leveling will be very different in the Shadowlands after the squish, and that all starts in the pre-expansion patch. We recently found out the exact conversion stats for what the current Battle for Azeroth levels will look like when the pre-patch hits, so we'll be taking a look at those.

      We've also been talking about both the average player leveling speed (8-10 hours) and the speedrunners' times on the beta (3-5 hours, dungeon and quest based), covered how the new leveling system works in terms of picking an expansion etc. with Chromie time, as well as how alts can level using bonus objectives, world quests etc. only, and have a general overview guide of the new leveling process, including heirlooms, potions etc. so you can be as informed as possible about the new systems.
      Level Conversion in the Shadowlands (source)
      With the pre-expansion patch, levels, items, and stats will be adjusted to make reaching a new level feel more meaningful while simultaneously making the leveling experience faster than before. Characters at level 120 will become level 50 after the content update. To help you understand how the change will affect your character’s level, we’ve pulled together this handy conversion table.
