How to Get the Slime Serpent Secret Mount in Shadowlands

Recommended Posts

The Slime Serpent Slime Serpent has been one of the few mysteries eluding the WoW Secrets community, and it's looking like it's been solved in a pretty uncomplicated way!

There has been a lot of speculation and theorycrafting surrounding this one, as it was always known to drop somewhere within Plaguefall, and today it's all turned out to be relatively simple and disappointing for the WoW Secret Finding Discord. It's unclear whether this was just added in patch 9.0.5 or perhaps even in a more recent hotfix, but Community Manager Muffinus did say that the mount was available way back in November, so it's possibly it's just been sitting there this whole time.

The actual solution to the mystery is... just solo the last two bosses of Heroic (or Mythic0) Plaguefall. Yep, that's about it. No secret shirts, no buffs that need to be active, no grand journey across the Shadowlands, just solo killing Margrave Stradama and Domina Venomblade in order to get to her, which then triggers a secret quest completion and spawns the serpent in the Domina area pool. There might still be some Renown requirements, but none have been spotted so far, but as most players that have gotten it so far were well caught-up on their Renown (but not all were at the cap), there is a possibility there's some level required, but so far it seems just the solo clear.

You just interact with the serpent there and get the Slime Serpent Slime Serpent mount!

The first to find this by accident was Hunter Durendil, who was just soloing the dungeon for a video! Huge thanks to the WoW Secret Finding Discord, as they picked up on this very quickly. Now actually soloing the last two bosses on Heroic isn't exactly trivial for some specs, so this one may still be fairly unattainable for some, but hopefully Blizzard can reduce the requirement to Normal at some point.

Players aren't too happy with this particular secret however, because aside from the fact that it's not particularly interesting nor complex, it's actually going to be pretty hard for some classes, with players already resorting to using badly geared alts, as it's their best bet to be able to solo clear Heroic.

And here are some happy players showing off their mounts. From the Secret Finding Discord: Killsun, Forkbeard(Robin), Cucmber:

Do we know what ilvl is needed to do so?

The bosses have 400-500k hp, and 3rd has an annoying stun, 4th the adds. I did as a 224 guard druid with no issues, though my dmg is depressingly low so took a while. Any class with tankiness and self sustain will be fine.

Bonus for me being shadowmeld, just ran through most of the trash and melded before 3rd boss, and used the trash for my shield 😛

Only Venthyr Warlock can do it. RIP to other covenants

someone's demo lock was able to do it, with nightfae using dreamweaver seed as soulbind.

How did you kill the 3rd boss? She won't attack my voidwalker for some reason

once inside the dungeon you have to manually turn on their threat generation, if it dies and you resummon you have to turn it on again. Best of luck

Hey, sorry for the long pause on the reply, I don't remember how long it took, maybe an hour max if I ball park it? I skipped the first two bosses. Being Kyrian really helps with Divine Toll, adds extra dps.

I dont know if i´m doing something wrong, but with a i level 210 Brewmaster monk i have no chance against Domina Venomblade, she kills me at about 80% live 

Same with a 218 brewmaster, got to 76%.  I think we don't have enough self heals even with Healing Elixir talent.

      Another Blizzard great has departed the company, as Glenn Rane, who has been creating incredible art for most Blizzard franchises, has left to join a new studio.
      You know much of Rane's art already from his 15 years at Blizzard, as he has been behind some of the most iconic World of Warcraft art, as well as a lot of Hearthstone cards, Diablo characters and many BlizzCon pieces as well. His work extends to loading screens, BlizzCon key art, game boxes, book covers, web banners, logos, licensed merchandise and more. While there are too many to go over, his most well-known would probably be the Burning Crusade box art, the WotLK Arthas loading screen, the Illidan Tomb of Sargeras key art, the Garrosh Siege of Orgrimmar key art and Bolvar on the Frozen Throne. He was also one of the "Sons of the Storm" together with Sam Didier, Chris Metzen and others.
           
        
        

        
      These are just a few of the many pieces you can find either at Rane's own gallery and shop or his Artstation and DeviantArt pages, and we'd recommend going through them all to see what impact he had on Blizzard.
      His new company, Lightforge Games, was founded by Blizzard and Epic Games veterans, and aims to "change how the world plays RPGs", and Rane is the Art Director there.
        
        

      The exit follow several other recent high profile Blizzard veterans leaving, including Jeff Kaplan and David Kim in the past month. We hope to see some great work come out of Lightforge in the future!

      We're taking a look at which spec performs best in Mythic+ this week.
      Introduction
      Welcome to our new format, where we explore the best specs for Mythic+ each week based on the current affixes. The data is taken from bestkeystone.com. The site gathers data from all regions and ranks each spec based on its "Average Score," depending on how well it performs in Mythic+ 10 runs that week.
      This article is based on 196K Mythic runs that have been completed so far this week on live servers.
      This Week's Affixes (Week of May 11)
      Fortified Sanguine Grievous Prideful Best Healers for Mythic+ This Week
      With a 72.2% success rate and an Average Score of 187.0, Holy Paladin is the best healer for this week's affix combination, followed by Restoration Shaman (66%/182.4), and Holy Priest (63.8%/179.5). At the bottom is Mistweaver Monk with an Average Score of 172.1 and a 60.2% success rate.

      Best Tanks for Mythic+ This Week
      Vengeance Demon Hunter leads this week as the most popular tank with an Average Score of 185.2, followed by Brewmaster Monk (185.1), and Guardian Druid (181.6). Blood Death Knight is last.

      Best DPS for Mythic+ This Week
      Compared to last week, there aren't many changes in the DPS department. Fire Mage is still first with an Average Score of 192.6. Outlaw Rogue is up by 1 rank in 2nd place (189.9), and Balance Druid is third (188.4).
      DPS specs with the lowest success rate this week are Retribution Paladin (64.6%), Subtlety Rogue (68.9%), and Arms Warrior (67%).

      Open-world catch-up gear from Korthia is on par with Normal difficulty Sanctum raid gear and upgradable all the way to Item Level 233 in Patch 9.1.
      If you don't like raiding, don't do PvP or Mythic+, you will likely be gearing up (and upgrading) gear through Korthian Armaments, an item purchased from the Death's Advance Quartermaster for 1,000 Stygia each that requires Friendly with the new faction located in Korthia. You can find more about catch-up gear coming in Patch 9.1 here.
      The gear token is Bind to Account and it is consumed to acquire a random item appropriate for your current level and loot specialization.
      Rank 1 has Item Level 200, but the gear can be upgraded all the way to Rank 15, according to items sold by The Archivist's Codex Quartermaster, who sells two upgrades:
      Research Report: Adaptive Alloys costs 4,000 Cataloged Research and requires Tier 6 research level with The Archivist's Codex and Renown 61 or higher. The item allows you to upgrade your items from Korthia and the Maw to Rank 13. Research Report: First Alloys costs 8,000 Cataloged Research and requires Tier 6 research level with The Archivist's Codex and Renown 75 or higher. It allows you to upgrade your items from Korthia and the Maw to Rank 15. German fansite Vanion reports that there are now 6 ranks instead of 15, as indicated by the Research Report Alloys and the upgrade requirements are as follows:
      Rank Item Level Costs Requirements 1 Item Level 200 1 Korthian Armaments Renown 40 2 Item Level 207 500 Cataloged Research Renown 40+ 3 Item Level 213 1,000 Cataloged Research ? 4 Item Level 220 2,250 Cataloged Research Requires Tier 5 research level with The Archivist's Codex and Renown 46 or higher. [Found in PlayerConditions] 5 Item Level 226 2,500 Cataloged Research Research Report: Adaptive Alloys and Renown 61 6 Item Level 233 5,500 Cataloged Research Research Report: First Alloys and Renown 75 For better illustration, Normal Difficulty Sanctum of Domination Gear ranges from Item Level 226-233.

      This one may have been obvious to some already, but we found out/got confirmation that the buffs to the amount of Anima items that drop from pretty much all activities you gain at certain Covenant Sanctum building thresholds are actually not tied to your specific Covenant!
      The buff was introduced about a month ago and adds 1 Uncommon and/or Rare Anima item per tier of Sanctum buildings you have completed (so all buildings at level 1, all at level 2 and all at level 3). The interesting part we just got confirmed about recently, by Campiona, is that you will keep this buff if you swap Covenants! Despite the fact that you won't have any upgraded buildings in your newly entered Covenant Sanctum, you will still be receiving the bonus Anima items based on your previous Covenant/the one you had most upgraded buildings in. Despite Campiona thinking this is too good to be true, it does actually make sense, as the buff is linked to the 3 achievements you can earn (We Can Rebuild, Denying the Drought and Sanctum Superior), which don't change/go away if you switch Covenants.

      It's also worth reminding that while these Anima buffs do actually help a lot, especially on the higher tiers of achievement, they are not account-wide, so those alts will be getting the lower Anima item numbers. It almost makes more sense to Covenant-swap one character with all the buildings/achievements if you want the cosmetic items from all the 4 Covenants, rather than play alts of different Covenants. However, it might take you a LOT of Anima, as we recently saw a calculation for the costs of all 4 Covenant Anima-related item costs, and they are in the 7 figures.
