      As more players are getting to that point with all 17 mission table companions' levels maxed out, we thought we'd take a look at just what happens at that point (as well as share some general table tips). The most interesting news here is that (unfortunately) even with all the companions at level 60, you'll still be getting the Xp missions!
      HarryNohara shared this not-so-great info, as well as a few other details of a fully leveled table with all 17 companions at max.

      While there was a period when players were very much regretting completing some of the campaign missions, as their table would upgrade all the missions to the next level threshold (which their companions couldn't keep up with) it might be a good time to actually do that now, if your companions are high enough level, as HarryNohara explains:
      It is at max rank, I completed the final campaign missions over 3 months ago. Increasing rank used to be a bad idea, but today I can only recommend increasing rank, since you still get the missions of the two prior ranks, and rewards do get a bit better at the highest rank, mostly more Anima.
      I get normal missions that are level 36, 48 and 60 (rank 3, 4 and 5), rares are 37, 49 and 61, and elite missions are 38, 50 and 62.
      I can complete all missions with 1 companion and 4 troops, however, missions don’t get easier, they just level up with your troop level. So if your troops are level 54 and you unlocked the last rank of missions, your normal/rare/elite missions will be level 54/55/56.
      We also recently found out that your troop level is actually calculated across ALL your Covenants if you switched, using a median calculation (you can read more about that here). Another useful piece of info, if you're not maxed out with the table campaign, is that you can see which part of the campaign you're on and also find out how close to the next upgrade you are, which we covered here, and if you need even more mission table tips, we have a compilation here.

      We covered a few animated wallpapers for Steam's Wallpaper Engine some days ago and one of the authors of those, Reika9944, created two more - one for Orgrimmar and one for Stormwind. But, since there are plenty of others out there, I dug around a little and found some other, older highlights as well. You can find links to the Wallpaper Engine files themselves in most of the threads below, so let's get started. If the animations aren't playing, just click on the images twice.
      First we have the two capitals that have been added a few days ago:
      Then we're on to some older stuff, some of which you may have seen already, but that is pretty damn impressive nonetheless. We'll start with some more iconic stuff/characters:
      As a Warrior main, I think it's illegal for me not to post this one, so:
      Then we have this one, which is just waiting to whisper some prophecies:
      And we couldn't go without one for possibly the most controversial moment in WoW history:
      Then we have a collection of Vanilla Classic official art images animated:
      And finally, possibly my two favorite ones (which I may have covered before), straight from the Bastion Afterlives animated short, Arthas and Uther in two very opposite situations:
      And a final FINAL bonus one, because why not end with fireworks!

      So, which of these is your favorite and do you have any others that might fit in well?
