One of the more popular recent meme formats has arrived in Azeroth and comes from a very appropriately named animated show, Invincible. There are spoilers for the finale of the show ahead, so if you were thinking of watching it, maybe skip this one!
The meme itself is based around a confrontation at the end of the show, where one character explains something "obvious" to the other in a very... let's say specific way. If you're not familiar with it you should check out the Know Your Meme post about it first, but meanwhile here are some really great Wow-themed entries!
We start of with a classic, which is also still very relevant to the story today, as Arthas has a little chat with Uther:
Then it's on to the other big story thread of WoW, as Velen explains things to Kil'jaeden:
Then there's a very meta-one, using the original template, and since you could still enjoy the show from the above and below memes, this particular one is taken directly from it and is a major spoiler, so I'll just spoiler tag it:
And then a couple of textless ones, with the message being generally pretty clear:
But this isn't even all of it, as the meme (or the show in general) even produced a "cursed" transmog (and you can check out the pieces over in the r/transmogrification thread)!
And finally, here's a general rundown of the many, many places the meme has been used (also spoilered since it has an actual clip of the scene from the finale of the show):
South Park's iconic "Sword of a Thousand Truths" is getting an HD model in Chains of Domination!
The Hungering Cold's appearance was used in South Park's iconic "Make Love Not Warcraft" episode, where Randy handed it to his son Stan to kill that which has no life.

In Patch 9.1, Blizzard added a new cosmetic sword called The Devouring Cold that is basically an HD version of The Hungering Cold, and here is how it looks in-game.
The Holy Priest's Symbol of Hope was buffed. Duty-Bound Gavel has changed and new Priest Legendary Powers have been datamined this week on the 9.1 PTR.

Some very sad news today, as one of the oldest top raiding guilds will be effectively leaving the Race to World First come 9.1!
Russian No.1 raid team Exorsus has announced that they will be drastically reducing their raiding time in Sanctum of Domination and beyond, going down to 2 raid days and evenings only. This comes after a long and storied history which includes two endboss World Firsts, with Legion's Xavius and Gul'dan, as well as two World second and four World 3rd race finishes starting way back in Mists of Pandaria, with their actual hardcore raiding stretching back even further to Ulduar. They most recently finished in a still very impressive 8th spot in Castle Nathria, but it seems WoW isn't quite offering much to them these days aside from the race itself, so a change was made. Here's their biggest accomplishment in terms of boss kills, the World 1st Gul'dan:
The guild's GM Alveona explained it all in detail in this TwitLonger:
You can also check out a more detailed overview of the guild's history over on Raider.IO, but here are some of their more prominent raid triumphs:
World First: Xavius (Emerald Nightmare), Gul'dan (Nighthold)
World 2nd: Kil'jaeden (Tomb of Sargeras), Argus (Antorus, the Burning Throne)
World 3rd: Lei Shen and Ra-den (Throne of Thunder), Garrosh Hellscream (Siege of Orgrimmar), Archimonde (Hellfire Citadel), G'huun (Uldir)
Top 10 in 8 more raids, including Castle Nathria.
Hopefully this isn't the last we see of Exorsus in the RWF, as there have been guilds that returned after a move like this (most notably Paragon), and we might still see them in the top 20/50 even with their reduced raid times. But even if we don't see them at the top again it's been a great journey for the No.1 Russian guild, who have provided us with many awesome videos and boss kills!
Control of Lava has been redesigned and we've datamined two new Shaman Legendary Powers in Patch 9.1 Build 38627.
