3 Encrypted Cinematics Available in Patch 9.1

Recommended Posts

54562-most-popular-classes-and-specializ

3 encrypted Patch 9.1 cinematics are currently present in the game files. These usually contain spoilers, so we will need to wait until June 29 to watch them.

All combined, the cinematics have 7.46 minutes.

  • interface/cinematics/shadowlands_910_950and952_1920.avi is 2 minutes and 25 seconds long and has 69.09 MB.
  • interface/cinematics/shadowlands_910_951_1920.avi is 3 minutes and 7 seconds long and has 88.32 MBs.
  • interface/cinematics/shadowlands_910_953_1920.avi has 1 minute and 56 seconds and 54.67 MBs.

There are also lower-resolution versions of the same cinematics present in the game files (1080p / 640p). What do you hope to see there?

My hope for her "redemption" is she tells us how to save Anduin. It would show remorse without her getting any personal cheese. Anything else will likely be hollow.

Very unlikely that they would kill her now, most likely she will live until another patch. Hopefully not a redemption story, but probably it's going to be just that. With how many cinematics there are, it's pretty much confirmed that this is a middle patch and 9.2 will be the last one for this expansion. Can't see how they would stretch this even further, especially with those delays. Jailer's story should wrap up within next patch.

This is my bet. It's the only thing which doesn't feel completely off to me. 

My singular wish is that she doesn't replace Bolvar. He was the one dude I showed up for and his current job is apparently to be everybody's punching bag. I wouldn't even call it a bad end for her. I just want Bolvar to be cool again.

Just blame the horse that dared to die on him and give him enough PTSD to pick it up.

Will be get any CGI based cinematic or not ? Or all cinematic will be like normal Ingame type ?

That's an interesting note.

 

Battle for Azeroth was RIPE with AWESOME cinematics. Was it just a one time thing? Did they plan to do more but then their budget was slashed?

 

On topic: I've said it many times, but I'm just done with the emphasis on Sylvanas. I get it appeals to so many types of fans (fans of elves, fans of undead, fans of archers, fans of women in games, fans of edgelords, etc), but as an OG warcraft fan, I'm just done. I wish we had a few more orcs, trolls, dwarves and gnomes that got some love.

More like the Dreadlords! They had some master plan and were double agents all along, even when among themselves they've never mentioned it before!

Usually it's just humans, orcs and various flavors of elves who get the spotlight, which can be very boring. Other races only appear when there is some content directly tied to them, and then they disappear (but even then, most bases are in human and orcish style). Occasionally few npcs from these races will appear and that's all.

I bet Sylvanas wouldn't have as many fans if they've made her look like an undead, because she doesn't even look like one. To most people, especially those unfamiliar with lore, she looks like a dark elf from other fantasy works. Cinematics were probably for special occasion, that being one of their most favored characters, Thrall.

I don't know the answer, but something interesting...

They made a lot of cinematics in BFA and to (I presume) cut down on what must be the most demanding part of the process they reused character models constantly.

There's really quite a limited cast once you notice. Thrall, Anduin, Genn, Saurfang, Zappyboy and Sylvanas all appear multiple times. Bannerlady from Saurfang's last cinematic seems to be based on the archer models from the main trailer. The rogues also look like they're based on that model. Footmen reappear constantly. Even the skeletons from the SL trailer are reused from the WotLK trailer.

There are some which aren't reused at all -- the draenei, nelves, etc, from the annoucement trailer and Saurfang's son. But they have the camera placed on them little or at all, and don't look half as attractive when you see a still of them. 

So! They like to reuse models. And thus far in SL we've had several highly detailed models they haven't reused, because we've only had the main trailer and several short clips. These are:

Bolvar, Denathrius, the Winter Queen and the Jailor. Also Krexus but boy, he seems irrelevant now. 

Seems to me pretty likely we're going to get at least some of those in later cinematics. Also interesting: Kyrestia is the only covenant leader who doesn't get a model. It seems to me that's quite possibly because they knew they were going to use her polished in-game model instead of the HD ones.

I've always thought her look is best in comparison to the undead around her. On her own she's pretty, but not necessarily unusual. Her cinematic model is wonderfully expressive though.

      Players on the Beta have been noticing some slowdowns and stutters before the recent maintenance, and since it is a Beta didn't think too much of it. However, it seems at least some of those issues may have been caused by a gigantic cluster of protodrakes!
      Plenty of players noticed this skinner's dream in the Waking Shores and Thaldraszus, starting with some screenshots and then culminating in a nightmare-inducing video, as the drakes fly off in search of their next victim.
      If you wanted to check if the flock was still there, here's the location, but they also seem to be appearing in the Veiled Ossuary in Thaldraszus. There were also plenty of hilarious comments on the posts, so here's some of them:
      I always knew the villain of the expansion was going to be the Infinite Dragonflight. - Bioslack
      ...
      Somebody messed up a "for" loop. - Zammin
      ...
      Even with Survival Instincts, Barkskin, and Rage of the Sleeper up all at once, I popped like a fucking grape within 3 seconds, lol. They all seem to cast something that deals ~22k damage baseline. I was able to use Anhylde's aegis to survive for 8 seconds and managed to get most of the group to like 70% health, but... again, popped like a grape once the aegis was gone. - Etamalgren
      ...
      One starfall and a raid full of skinners is what that pile needs. - Kambhela
      ...
      That is what they call in Dragonic Biology, a "Dragon Ball". - ReysonBran
      ...
      New Dragonflight bug feature: in-game GPU stress test. - dafino

      The XP buff has arrived (to NA at least, with EU getting it with tomorrow's reset)! It's time to level any new characters you had planned or old ones that aren't maxed yet, as the 50% buff will only last until the Dragonflight pre-patch. And while we don't yet know when exactly that will arrive, it's not too far away, with the expansion's release coming in under 2 months! 
      Winds of Wisdom (Source)
      If you’re just returning after a hiatus from World of Warcraft, leveling another character (or two), or preparing to get ready for the Dragonflight expansion then this is the perfect time to jump into the game. Beginning the week of October 4 with each region’s local weekly reset, all World of Warcraft* players level 10-59 will gain the experience buff called “Winds of Wisdom,” which will increase experience gains by 50%!
      Don’t delay. The winds will shift once more when the new dracthyr Evoker becomes playable during the Dragonflight pre-expansion patch, and the experience buff will no longer be available.
      * Experience boost not available in World of Warcraft Classic titles.
    • By Stan
      Even though Dracthyr Evokers start at Level 60, Blizzard added some new intro quests in Dalaran for players that decide to go back and do Legion content for some reason.
      Dracthyr Evokers do not get an Artifact weapon or Class Order Hall. When you decide to skip the Legion intro you will end up in Dalaran. A new quest will automatically pop up for Evokers called Aiding Khadgar. You are tasked to meet Khadgar within the Violet Citadel. Khadgar will have another new quest for you -- An Adventurer's Aid, where he points you to a new scouting map. The map lets you pick a Legion zone for questing. Blizzard will most likely assign Evokers an existing DPS/Healer challenge. However, the Mage Tower appears to be disabled currently on the Beta. MrGM explored Evokers in Legion content further in his latest video.

      What's Going Away with Dragonflight Pre-Patch (Presumably on Oct 25)?
      The Winds of Wisdom buff that increases XP gains by 50%. Restoration Deathwalker (Shadowlands Season 4 mount). Season 4 Dungeon Teleports.
      What's Going Away When Dragonflight Launches?
      The Back from Beyond Shadowlands meta-achievement. Jigglesworth Sr. Carcinized Zerethsteed. Various Season 4 PvP rewards, and more. For more details check out our detailed guide!
