Vicious War Spider, Shadowlands Season 1 PvP Mount Reward Drops in Pre-patch

Recommended Posts

Update: it seems this wasn't a one-off event, and many players have actually received the mount after random Arena match wins (possibly after a certain rank, as in SL Season 1 it will require 1.4K rating):

The Shadowlands are leaking again and this time it's a giant spider that's come through from the future. The Vicious War Spider Vicious War Spider is the Rated PvP reward for Shadowlands Season 1 (which begins on December 8th) but it's just showed up a little early and in a completely random way.

    Streamer Ioganwow was playing arena on live servers and at the end of the match he got the mount, and was slightly surprised, as you'd imagine:

    He was later spotted by a10benoman in Orgrimmar, where he was attracting quite the crowd!

    The real question for Ioganwow now is whether Blizzard will let him keep it (and if this will happen to more players). It's a pretty interesting and hilarious bug, but the surprise factor there is really what makes it special, as not only is it from Shadowlands but also isn't supposed to drop from Arena matches at all. This leads us to the even more pressing question: What could be next in the "falling down through the big hole in the sky" category?

        Another world first goes to the same group that cleared Mythic +25 earlier. This time, they have cleared a +26 with almost 40 seconds left on the timer. This is the first +26 cleared in time in Season 1. Congratulations!
        You can find a more details about the run including team composition, Covenants, Soulbind traits, Conduits, Legendaries, and trinkets below.

        You can find a VoD of their run on Douyu.

        Two top Arena World Championship players, including a BlizzCon champion and a 2nd place finisher, received suspensions yesterday, one permanent, as both were found to be using Real Money Trading.
        First off we have Emil "Zeepeye" Ek, who won last year's EU side of the AWC and had previously finished in 2nd place during the 2019 AWC BlizzCon finals, and is now suspended for 6 months. The RMT was related to "coaching", which could be interpreted as boosting by some, and Ek had a lengthy explanation of what happened and why:
        Secondly, a previous 1-year suspension was made permanent, as Martin "Loony" Moazzez (who shared the EU AWC 2020 win with Zeepeye and had previously won BlizzCon 2014) also participated in Real Money Trading and coaching. There's a lot more to his story, as the initial 1-year suspension actually wasn't for RMT but more complicated and, well, worse:

        What would be the worst thing that could happen in the Shadowlands? The Jailer winning and remaking the way death works? Destroying the universe to build a new one? Sylvanas getting redeemed and us having to suffer through her being on our side again? Well, it turns out 9.1 might be bringing something MUCH darker on us than all of that combined.
        Sarazzan made this horrifying discovery when looking at the ending of the 9.1 cinematic, as a certain glowy light at the end of the chains over in Korthia is hinting at... terror:

        So get ready for a return to the CHAMPIONizing and WOONZing ways of BfA, as everyone's least favorite Christmas tree ornament might be coming back. When you think about it it makes sense too, as the instant he wasn't needed to save Azeroth anymore some very smart people decided to banish him into the deepest depths of the Shadowlands, but alas the Jailer just hates us SO much that he's bringing him back.
        Here are some of the measured and very accurate comments from the post:
        And just in case you forgot why players are scared to death of him, here are a couple of reminders:

        We have two pretty great videos of Priests taking matters into their own hands, as Leap of Faith "helps" the DPS do the mechanics properly... and sometimes not so much.
        The first clip is a truly amazing example of "healers have to do everything"/babysitting the DPS, as this Priest took control and completed the Lady Inerva mechanic using a puppet:
        However, there's always a flip side to things, as this Priest had the same idea, with a somewhat different outcome on Stole Legion:

        Bellular had the opportunity to interview Steve Danuser and Morgan Day. Interview highlights include deliberate parallels between Anduin, and Arthas, the story of Garrosh, Ner'zhul, and Yrel in Shadowlands, and more. Check out our recap to learn more!
        Interview Highlights
        There are some deliberate parallels between Arthas and Anduin in the new cinematic, but also differences. For a brief moment, Anduin was horrified about what he's done before the Jailer's power of Dominion took hold of him again. That didn't happen with Arthas. It appears we're going to learn more about Ner'zhul in Shadowlands. Garrosh Hellscream also has a small role to play in Patch 9.1. They don't want to reveal any spoilers, though. We will also hear more about Yrel, who wielded the light's power to destroy Mag'har Orcs in the Allied Race unlock scenario.
