Blizzard decided to scrap the idea of realm first achievements in general, but there's still one that was added in Shadowlands that you can earn.
Realm First! Shadowlands Keystone Master requires the party to participate in the realm-first completion of a Level 15 or higher Shadowlands Mythic dungeon within the time limit. It does not matter which dungeon you pick.
The achievement cannot be earned before December 8, though. The new Mythic Season starts when Castle Nathria opens, and currently, only Mythic difficulty dungeons are available for play.
Here we are 3 days into the new expansion, and the Heroic dungeon glory achievement has already been completed! As spotted by Wowhead, Dirtyb, Taterpuffs, Drennalin, Aeglour and Dartoes from the Tichondrius and Stormreaver servers have pushed themselves and got the Glory of the Shadowlands Hero done, netting themselves a cool mount right off the bat! They weren't even the only group to do it, as another got it finished within 6 hours.
For more on the run, including details on which the tougher parts of the achievement were for the group, head on over to Wowhead.
The Maw's mount restrictions have been annoying many players (well, non Worgen and Druid players at least), but as we all know there's many way of moving around in WoW. In this particular case, Googleflax used one of the more awesome items in the game, the Falling Flame to get where he wanted in the Maw, and then Goblin Glider Kit to, well, not die once he landed (click the HD button in the bottom right of the video for non-1998 visuals):
The item is from the Timeless Isle (the rare Cinderfall, right in front of the broken bridge, as Googleflax explains), but unfortunately both has a 1-hour cooldown and only has 50 uses. It has also been used extensively many times to host "Super hole in one" competitions, where players would aim for the Dalaran well for example from quite a ways off (unfortunately only a few clips remain in the linked article, but you'll get the idea).
So, if you want to do some crazy stuff in the Maw, it's time to head back to Pandaria for a bit and get this awesome thing!
We've all had some cool level-up moments, when the ding just perfectly syncs up with something we're doing at that moment, but we'd all be hard-pressed to top this particular one, not least of all because it was the actual final level of the Shadowlands that was achieved. The title says it all, really:
Talk about being thrown into the endgame...
Another very big batch today! From the Barrens/Westfall graveyard glitch, class tweaks, the Covenant switching and Oribos War Mode fixes announced earlier and plenty more Covenant campaign and quest improvements, and a whole lot more!
November 26 (source)
[With realm restarts] Oribos no longer separates players with War Mode enabled from those who have it disabled. Falling off the edge of the Shattered Grove in Maldraxxus will no longer send the character to Westfall or the Barrens. Falling to your death is enough punishment. Classes
Mage General Fixed an issue where Dimensional Blade (Torghast Anima Power) would sometimes not instantly kill Mawrats when Blinking through them. Paladin Retribution Seraphim (Talent) now correctly triggers Selfless Healer (Talent). Shaman Enhancement Windfury Totem procs now have sound and the volume of the Maelstrom Weapon proc sound has been lowered. Covenants
Players who switch covenants after completing the Maw introduction and gathering 5 Redeemed Souls for their first covenant should now find that they have 5 Redeemed Souls waiting for them in their new covenant. Players who changed covenants prior to this fix and were roadblocked by missing Redeemed Souls should visit Oribos, which will perform a process that corrects the issue. Adventures missions now appear immediately after completing the tutorial when switching covenants. Kleia is now a bit more chatty and now welcomes being the chosen Soulbind in Elysian Hold. Fixed an issue that caused a player to be rejected from their chosen covenant. Covenant pacts lost in this way can now be re-selected. Creatures and NPCs
Scorched Crypt Key can now open the Crypt Door to Innervus. Night Fae characters in Soulshape form can now pass through the barrier protecting Skuld Vit. Derwynnthlmn will now offer his Flight Master services to players that have chosen the Night Fae Covenant. Dungeons and Raids
Mythic Keystone Dungeons Mists of Tirna Scithe Explosive Orbs will no longer spawn inside Tred’ova. Gormling Larva will now spawn Explosive Orbs at player locations instead of their location. Halls of Atonement Fixed an issue where Revendreth players with combat pets could not correctly interact with Loyal Stoneborn. Items and Rewards
The cooldown of Slumberwood Band's effect can no longer be prematurely cleared by death or by using immunities and similar effects. The Oribobber now makes sound when a fish is hooked. Resolved an issue where Master Duelist's Chit trinket would fail to correctly display its visual effect when striking targets at range. Quests
Covenant Campaign Fixed an issue where depositing anima during the Covenant Campaign tutorial quest “Into the Reservoir” could sometimes consume the player's earned anima instead of the tutorial anima. Fixed an issue where Night Fae players who skipped parts of Covenant Chapter 1 by speaking to the Winter Queen, but had not yet done the campaign quests at the Star Lake Amphitheater on any character, would be unable to turn in the quest "Show, Don't Tell." The boss will no longer reset when dealing the killing shot at the same time as being ejected from Bron during the Mikanikos “Path of Ascension” scenario. Lady Moonberry has finished her prank and is no longer in two places at once for Night Fae who leveled via Threads of Fate during the quest "The Boon of Shapes." Bastion The chest for “Trial of Courage” no longer despawns as soon as you reach it. Fixed an issue where the Chamber Guardians could fail to attack during the quest, "You Go First." Maldraxxas The Harvesting Hook required for "Give Them a Hand" now displays that it’s on cooldown. To prevent phasing issues, “Kill Them, Of Course” must be turned in before “Secrets Among the Shelves” can be accepted. Ve'nari's Orb of Teleportation now correctly brings all members of a party along for the ride during the quest “Hope Never Dies.” Fixed an issue that sometimes caused a door to not open while progressing through the quest, “Secrets Among the Shelves.” Ardenweald Elder Finnan, Elder Gwenna, and Groonoomcrooek have all returned to their homes, if you are searching for them for the Lady of the Falls after accepting "Ages-Echoing Wisdom." Nesting Valeshrieker will now respawn after a hunter tames the beast while on the quest "Wildseed Rescue." Revendreth Fixed an issue where Stage 3 of “The Master of Lies” scenario completed automatically if the objective’s area was reached on an earlier stage. General Kaal will now accept the turn in for "The Master Awaits" after dismounting Myskia. Torghast, Tower of the Damned
Added missing sounds to some creatures and boss abilities. Fixed an issue that sometimes caused Arch-Suppressor Laguas to become afflicted with Thrall’s Earthen Crush ability and permanently evade all oncoming attacks. Fixed an issue that allowed Unnatural Power to be removed with mind control abilities. World Quests
Fixed an issue where some players could not see the obstacles during the Bastion World Quest, "Flight School: Flapping Frenzy." Increased the respawn rate of the enemies required for completing "Pest Removal." “Calling the Champions” now gives credit to all party members.
