      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!

      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.

      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.
