As always, this testing schedule is very fluid and subject to the realities of a test environment. We might have to change the time of a testing session, change the bosses being tested, or cancel a test entirely, due to bugs, server hardware issues, etc. Keep an eye on this forum for the latest information, and thank you in advance for testing and providing feedback.

Q: How do I get into the raid zone?

A: In Oribos, Dalaran, Orgrimmar, or Stormwind, you may speak to Nexus-Lord Donjon Rade IV in order to teleport into the raid zone while it is open for testing. (The option to teleport into a zone will not be available when the zone is not open for testing.)

Q: What character should I use to test the raid?

A: Whichever you prefer. We will be scaling players’ effective level to 60 for raid testing, and their item level to an appropriate threshold for the encounter(s) being tested.

Q: How long does testing last?

A: The primary purpose of testing is to give us the information we need to balance the encounters, evaluate how mechanics are playing out in practice, and identify bugs. Once we’re satisfied that we’ve received that information for a given boss, we’ll be shutting down testing. Usually this takes anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours, but there are no guarantees.

We appreciate you taking the time to test our content and look forward to reading your feedback.

      This is a very special one, for me at least, as I've never seen animations as good as these in a WoW machinima. "The Craft of War: REDEMPTION" is a pretty simple and very old-school premise, as two paladins go through Blackrock Mountain and face off against Nefarian in one of the most awesome fights ever, with a pretty crazy finale to boot!
      Mark really nailed the anime-like feel of the combat, while still keeping it very much WoW-themed, and the whole thing is well worth a watch (but if you just want the absolute highlight, head to the 5 minute mark). Before the main event we get to see a lot of Blackrock Spire, with some trash, Rend and a very unhappy dragon with the Blackhand Doomsaw getting plenty of attention, as it should since it's the best looking weapon in WoW.
       
      And thanks to Kulg for spotting the video!

      Here we are looking back at week 9 of patch 9.0.5 in Castle Nathria, as the very top of the rankings has been changing quite a bit recently, with a new No.1 this week. The boomkins seem to have taken their lack of domination seriously and have reclaimed their throne from Shadow, so our guide writer will be taking a look as well.
      Mythic Rankings
      In raiding's high-end we have the return of the feathered kings, with boomkins getting back in gear after Shadow's brief stint in the throne. Arcane and Fire also flipped, as the more volatile spec is now actually somewhat stable in the top rankings at least, sitting just outside the top 3, and the third Mage spec had the biggest movement of them all this week, rising 5 spots into 8th. The middle of the pack had some rearranging happen as well, but nothing major, with Fury and Demonology going up and Retribution and Unholy down.

      95th percentile Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      As usual, the all percentiles bracket has a lot less movement, but did the 7-9 spots shuffle around, as the two DK specs swap and Fury goes down one, while Arcane also gained some ground, but not nearly as much, just entering the top 10. The bottom 5 specs seem to be pretty set here, as they haven't changed in quite a bit.

      All percentiles Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      Balance Druid by Bora:

      Heroic Rankings, Overall Damage
      Fire mage came out very strong this week in Heroic, moving into 2nd, while Feral continues its rise and is now in 8th!

      As always, if you want even more info on a spec, you can check out our class guides here, or for even more data, head on over to Warcraft Logs.

      We're back with more amazing Sercan Özyurt art pieces, this time focusing on his personal mount collection! While it's mostly based off the Shadowlands Covenants, there's a lot more to be found there as well, with some really fun concepts.
      But let's start off with the most recent addition, which is also my personal pick for most awesome mount (concept) I've ever seen, as we'd get to ride around on our very own Necropolis! This one would have to be the reward for something extremely difficult (or would make millions in the shop), perhaps something cool for the Race to World First?

      While nothing could top that thing, there are still plenty of cool mounts to check out, with the Night Fae getting less of a flattened fox if Sercan had anything to say about it:
        
      The Kyrian also get their flying mount redone, but they have the pleasure of getting two!
        
      The Venthyr also got a flying mount take, but it was significantly before the recent look we got at their actual 9.1 mount:

      This next one is especially appropriate for patch 9.1, as Torghast is getting a lot of cosmetic rewards, so why not a very thematic mount!

      And finally, we have a not-quite-Shadowlands themed mount, with an Infernal apparently getting into the Winter Veil spirit!

       
      We've now covered pretty much everything Sercan has come up with so far, from his Old God,  Covenant, and Heritage themed armor sets, to potential shop cosmetics, Covenant Druid forms and the latest incredible Sanctum of Domination armor sets, so we're excited to see what else he can come up with! Meanwhile you should go and check out all his work, with additional versions of the above mounts, and a lot more over on his Artstation.
