Here's something that puzzled me for a long time. Why didn't they update this model when WoD came instead of reusing the Direhorn skeleton for the boar mounts? The old one looks way better and has better animations

If I had to guess, they wanted the WoD boars to look more "savage." The same reason they gave the clefthooves thousands of horns and spikes.

This is exactly why: Azeroth boars and Draenor boars are not *really* the same species, just the same creature type manifesting in a similar environment on a similar planet.

Where's the extra 2 legs?   I mean after all Blizzard totaly screwed up what an alligator looks like with 6 legs, why not the boar with all the tusks? I say give them 2 extra legs for more traction!  WBELM for the win!

      Dragonflight Season 4 is set to start on April 23rd, and we're still in the dark about whether Awakened raid bosses will include affixes.
      During Shadowlands Season 4, Blizzard rolled out five Fated Powers that changed weekly. Each boss in a Fated Raid had one active Fated Power, and we're hoping to see something similar in the upcoming Awakened Raids for Dragonflight Season 4. However, Blizzard hasn't confirmed any details beyond increased scaling..
      Currently, spell databases show no entries for "Awakened Power," so we might be in for some surprises when the season kicks off.
      To recap, here are the five Fated Powers from Shadowlands Season 4.
      Fated Power: Chaotic Essence - Summons a Chaotic Essence which casts Chaotic Destruction, inflicting 100 Cosmic damage to all players if successful. Upon interaction, the essence becomes hostile and instead continuously manifests Chaotic Motes. These motes channel 2 Cosmic damage into targeted players every 0.5 sec. for 3 sec. When defeated each mote splits into additional motes. After 15 sec the Chaotic Essence dissipates, granting all players 2% increased damage done, 2% increased healing done, and 2% absorbs done for 25 sec. This effect stacks for each Chaotic Mote slain. Fated Power: Creation Spark - Charges a player, inflicting 3 Cosmic damage every 1 sec. for 30 sec. This effect stacks. Upon removal this charge jettisons Creation Sparks to nearby locations, infusing players within 0 yards of the impact location, increasing the flow of time by 15%, increasing casting, attack speed, cooldown recharge rate, and periodic tick rates and additionally increasing movement speed by 40% for 25 sec. Fated Power: Protoform Barrier - Empowers the caster, inflicting 3 Cosmic damage to all players every 3 sec. Upon removal this barrier manifests as one attackable enemy, casting a shared 1,300 absorb shield with all other enemies for 15 sec. A second unit manifests that also can be healed to reduce the shared shield. Upon expiration the barrier explodes, inflicting 50 Cosmic damage and an additional 5 Cosmic damage every 1 sec. to all players for 8 sec. If broken this effect backfires, inflicting all damage done to each enemy during the barrier as Cosmic damage, and additionally grants all players up to 20% increased damage done, 20% healing done, 30% total health, and 20% increased absorbs done for 40 sec. Fated Power: Reconfiguration Emitter - Manifests an attackable enemy which continuously casts. This enemy remains immune to damage until the first successful cast or interrupt. Successful casts inflict 30 Cosmic damage to all players. Upon defeat this enemy infuses all players with power based on the energy level of the emitter, increasing mastery by up to 10, critical strike chance by up to 15%, versatility by up to 15%, and avoidance by up to 9. Fated Power: Replicating Essence - Ensnares afflicted players, reducing movement speed by 15% and inflicting 15 Cosmic damage every 1 sec. for 5 sec. Upon removal this essence patterns inself as 2 |4attackable enemy:attackable enemies;, which continuously channels 2 Cosmic damage every 0.5 sec. into targeted players for 4 sec. Upon defeat grants all players 10% increased damage done and 10% increased healing and absorbs done for 10 sec. Upon reaching full power, this essence replicates itself into 2 |4additional copy:additional copies;, exhausting itself preventing additional replication and no longer grants players any beneficial effects upon defeat. Exhausted Essences continuously channels 5 Cosmic damage every 1 sec. into multiple targeted players for 4 sec. Do you hope to see similar powers in Dragonflight Season 4?

      Everything you need to know about Awakened Raids in Dragonflight Season 4 in a condensed format.
      Every week in Season 4, one of the 3 Dragonflight raids will be marked as Awakened, which means bosses are harder, but you will earn better rewards.
      We assume there will be affixes, but none have been officially confirmed yet.

      Awakened Raids - Item Level of Loot
      Raid Finder: 480-489; Very Rare Drops: 496. Normal Difficulty: 493-502; Very Rare Drops: 509. Heroic Difficulty: 506-515; Very Rare Drops: 522. Mythic Difficulty: 519-528; Very Rare Drops: 535. Legendary Weapons in Season 4
      Legendary weapons will continue to drop as usual, and for those who already obtained Nasz'uro, the Unbound Legacy and Fyr'alath the Dreamrender, you can upgrade both with Scale of Awakening to a base item level of 502 (purchasable with Antique Bronze Bullions) and further using crests and Flightstones.
      Antique Bronze Bullion
      Antique Bronze Bullion is the dinar-type currency used in Dragonflight Season 4 to buy gear and cosmetics. One character can hold a maximum of 20, and the sources are unknown for now, but presumably, we will see them drop from Awakened raid bosses.
      Antique Bronze Bullion Vendors
      Located at the Parting Glass in eastern Valdrakken (77, 51), are vendors that sell gear from the 3 Dragonflight raids for Antique Bronze Bullion each.

      There's a a vendor selling cosmetics (set appearances and weapons) from all raids for 1 Antique Bronze Bullion, and also the Jigglesworth, Sr. mount from Shadowlands Season 4 for 3 Antique Bronze Bullion, so if you've missed that, don't forget to buy it!

      Awakened Mark of Mastery Vendor
      Awakened Mark of Mastery is rewarded from the Dragonflight Season 4 Master achievement. You must earn one of the following achievements to get it: 
      Clear one out of the 3 Awakened Raids on Heroic Difficulty Heroic: Awakened Storms Heroic: Awakened Shadows Heroic: Awakened Flames Earn the Challenger II Rank in Season 4 (Challenger II: Dragonflight Season 4); Earn Dragonflight Keystone Master in Season 4 (Dragonflight Keystone Master: Season Four). Once you have the mark, bring to Harrostrasza at the Parting Glass in Valdrakken to exchange it for 1 Heroic Item Level 502/512 Tier Set piece. The NPC can be found at 74.73 46.48.

      Awakened Raids Omnitoken Vendor
      Awakened Tempostone is the omnitoken that drops from the final boss of an Awakened Raid. You can exchange at Runaagos (77 51) for a class set piece.
      The item level of gear is as follows:
      Raid Finder Difficulty: Item Level 486; Normal Difficulty: Item Level 499; Heroic Difficulty: Item Level 512; Mythic Difficulty: Item Level 525.
      Awakened Raids Rewards
      Clearly all Awakened Raids rewards the Voyaging Wilderling mount.

      Clearing all 3 Awakened Raids on Heroic rewards the Awakened Hero title.
      Clearing all 3 Awakened Raids on Mythic rewards raid teleports.

      Here's the Mythic+ Tier List for the 22nd week of Season 3!
      The following post is based on data from U.GG. Therefore, the data presented here may differ from Petko's Mythic Tier Lists maintained on our site.
      How the Data is Calculated
      U.GG's tier list is created by evaluating damage and healing scores from the very best players and factoring in the frequency of each spec's appearances in the highest rankings of the current Mythic+ season. The tier list of each spec is determined by its effectiveness and prevalence at the highest levels of Mythic+ play.
      Mythic+ Tier List for Dragonflight Season 3 Week 22
      This week's affixes are: Tyrannical, Entangling, and Bursting.

      Not satisfied with one fully neutral, never leaving the Wandering isle character, NeutralAgent has been hard at work maxing out all 8 classes that can remain neutral! He's recently done it and got them all to the level 70 Dragonflight cap, all without even picking a faction! 
      That's a Hunter, Mage, Monk, Priest, Rogue, Shaman, Warlock, Warrior, and there's even a bonus second level 70 Shaman in there as well! It took almost a year and a half since the first level 70 neutral, the Shaman Doubleagent, was done in Dragonflight,
       The Monk was left for last in this latest trip to the new expansion max level, so let's take a look!  
      They're all ready to go for the next level cap increase coming with the War Within, so we'll see how long it takes this time around.

      Blizzard have clarified the reason behind the recent reduction for everyone's new favorite mount, as they are trying to fix some animation issues and he will return to his big boy size in 10.2.7.
      Taivan (Source)
      In order to alleviate some animation bugs with Taivan, we recently reduced the default size of the mount.
      This was a temporary measure, and we’re developing fixes for everyone’s goodest good boy. We expect to return Taivan to a larger size in 10.2.7, and we’re planning to test those fixes in an upcoming 10.2.7 PTR build.
      We appreciate the enthusiastic feedback we’ve gotten on this!
