Chains of Domination Key Art

Recommended Posts

A preview of the official Patch 9.1 key art.

The 9.1 key art has been revealed. In the foreground, we see Anduin holding his Mourneblade. The Jailer's shadow is right behind him and chains are descending from Torghast. In the background, there are multiple forsworn in the sky. Chains of Domination is as the name implies all about the Jailer's control over Anduin, who is used as a weapon against us.

Lich King Anduin looks just like Arthas.

By all similarities one thing most forget that Arthas voluntarily gave up his freedom and with this his body
He said he would pay any price if it helps him defeat malganis and safe his people

Anduin didn't gave up for all we know he was forced and that is possibly why he regained controll for a split sec in the cinematic

so i dont think they will share the same fate

Is that the pacifist who cried when he was granted Light powers to heal his troops? There's no making a badass out of this b'itch, just bring back Arthas so he can stomp his face and revert him back to his pathetic normal self.

I never could understand why people demand fanservice over good writing, and then go on to bash the said writing.

No, I'm not in favor of bringing back dead characters at all, more often than not it will only diminish what has been established prior to their death and removes all stakes. Who cares that Loki keeps dying  in the MCU? However, Arthas is showing up anyway right (that's what I've been hearing), might as well do a good deed while he's around.

One of the best merits of good writing is knowing when to end a character's story. Arthas is a good example of a complete arc that needs no continuation, one of the few in Wow.

But then for some reason ppl were demanding Arthas since forever to ruin it, mostly with yet another dumb "redemption arc", and now with SL, when it will happen it will be executed poorly, trying to cram the staff that was not intended to be there, and people will whine about.

Try processing a statement before picking a talk, "kid".

The issue: why should he be doing a good deed. Or, anything, for the matter, any motivation would look cheap for someone who was in "magical mcguffin corruption" zone for the most of their arc.

I have a feeling that if the fanbase wasn't yelling about it all the time for no point other than nostalgia, they might've just let a sleeping dog lie, like they promised.

You sound like someone who believes in the integrity of WoW's storytelling and is actually excited to see where things go next, this begs the question: Are you serious?

I sound like someone who has seen fulfilling "fan demands" ruin the writing of quite a few shows and franchises, including one example with the author not caving in and the moronic part of the 'fandom' angrily doing "a (crappy) better rewrite".

WoW's story going downhill? Obviously. Does not stop one from hoping the damage can be contained and some things, like Arthas' arc, would stay intact. But since the 'fans' were unable to contain their ovaries with "bRiNG aRthAs BaCk!!!!!1111" for years, he is going to be ruined along with Sylvanas, Uther, Elune, and God knows whom else.

But, if nothing else, it would be hillarious to watch them rage, I guess.

Yeah, they'll make a total embarrassment out of Arthas that's for sure, but if they at least make him destroy that little b'itch for having the audacity of weilding a true warrior's weapon and trying to look like a cool Lich King, that might be a Shadowlands cinematic I finally like.

Irony here is you named the exact reason he cried them joy tears in BFA cinematic, which adds to his character gracefully, rather makes him "a b*tch" (and given his service record, I can't imagine a logical reason to call him one, other than "me hate on principle").

Anduin, as noted by many characters, is not a good fit for a warrior's life, but there is a calling that suits him and he's exceptionally good at it. Blaming him for not being Varian or Arthas, but rather his own person, which got 'a warrior-king' and 'a Lich King' roles forced onto him is quite silly.

I'm not blaming him for not being Arthas or Varian, I just really dislike who he is and what he stands for. I don't have patience, understandig or willingness to accept characters who don't like fighting, cry and fall into deep remorse after a kill... in Warcraft, especailly if they are placed in leadership positions. Now he is being made to resemble very, very closely the greatest character in Warcraft and that pissess me off big time.

      Final Fantasy XIV Director Naoki Yoshida gave a thoughtful speech about the perceived rivalry between World of Warcraft and Final Fantasy.
      Naoki doesn't appreciate people dunking on WoW, according to PC Gamer. "Without World of Warcraft, A Realm Reborn wouldn't exist. World of Warcraft was the game we constantly looked up to," Yoshida said. 
      He also said that their goal was to recreate a Final Fantasy version of WoW, so claiming one game won over the other is "off the base".
      Yoshida also touched upon the subject of subscriber counts, claiming "there's no way" Square Enix could compete with WoW's peak 12 million paid subscribers.
      There's a video of Yoshida talking about World of Warcraft. It has been translated by blluist. You must enable subtitles for the translation.

      It's time to look at Mythic DPS popularity in Shadowlands Season 2.
      DATA RELIABILITY: The data used in this article comes from benched.me. Reddit user OtherwiseUniversity7 plotted all keys available from the Blizzard API (excluding the CN region) on a single ridge plot to gather the data.
      This Week's Affixes (Week of July 27)
      The following affixes are active this week.
      Fortified Bolstering Quaking Tormented Total Runs Recorded
      Here are all the runs recorded since Mythic Season 2 started. We use the data further to determine the most popular ranged and melee DPS specializations.

      Most Popular Melee DPS for Mythic+
      The most popular melee DPS with over 730K runs is Havoc Demon Hunter. The second is Fury Warrior (527K runs). The third is Outlaw Rogue (339K runs). The least popular melee DPS is Survival Hunter with just 58K runs completed so far in Season 2.
      1st: Havoc Demon Hunter - 737,977 runs 2nd: Fury Warrior - 527,147 runs 3rd: Outlaw Rogue - 339,161 runs 4th: Windwalker Monk - 330,379 runs 5th: Unholy Death Knight - 276,603 runs 6th: Retribution Paladin - 228,426 runs 7th: Arms Warrior - 184,792 runs 8th: Assassination Rogue - 154,780 runs 9th: Enhancement Shaman - 144,617 runs 10th: Subtlety Rogue - 144,495 runs 11th: Frost Death Knight - 101,389 runs 12th: Feral Druid - 64,595 runs 13th: Survival Hunter - 58,256 runs Detailed Look at Spec Performance
      The meta starts kicking in once rewards are no longer relevant. In other words, when you pass the level needed for the Great Vault reward. That's where casuals stop playing, and dedicated pushers (and the metaclasses they play) take over the population.
      Certain non-meta specializations stay stable (or even gain share) in mid-range keys.

      Total Runs By Spec and Key Level

      Most Popular Ranged DPS for Mythic+
      The most popular ranged DPS so far is Frost Mage, followed by Marksmanship Hunter, and Balance Druid. The least favorite one is Affliction Warlock. You can find the exact numbers below.
      1st: Frost Mage - 746,864 runs 2nd: Marksmanship Hunter - 648,809 runs 3rd: Balance Druid - 608,162 runs 4th: Elemental Shaman - 585,175 runs 5th: Beast Mastery Hunter - 514,754 runs 6th: Destruction Warlock - 450,786 runs 7th: Shadow Priest - 336,225 runs 8th: Arcane Mage - 225,185 runs 9th: Fire Mage - 138,025 runs 10th: Demonology Warlock - 114,557 runs 11th: Affliction Warlock - 73,845 runs Detailed Look at Spec Performance

      We have a very classic MS paint map and route for the Korthia rift treasures, as asder34s and his fellow redditors share their favorite/optimal ways of checking all the spots!
      In the tried and true tradition of just throwing something together in paint, here's the masterpiece in red:

      We also have some additional helpful comments and tips if you're going to be trying this out:
      On getting from point 2 to 3:
      Hearthstone or wormhole, then run. - asder34s

      On an alternate route within this one:
      Alternatively, you can goblin glider from 2 to 7 and then head over to 5. - PurplePudding

      On the chest on the island:
      As far as I can tell. You wanna start on the island always if you can to kill Yorik too. - PurplePudding
      While this may not be the perfect or ultimate route, it's better than just running around aimlessly hoping to bump into one. Let us know if it helped!

      Darkmoon Faire has returned for a week! Make sure to use the +10% reputation/experience buff, and don't forget about Profession skill-up quests too!
      10% WHEE! Buff
      The buff increases Experience and Reputation gains by 10% for 1 hour, and we recommend you to turn in weekly quests only after you have the buff for extra reputation. The buff's great for farming reputation beyond Exalted for Paragon reputation rewards.
      The buff also increases reputation gains with the Death's Advance faction located in Korthia. Unfortunately, it won't work with The Archivist's Codex faction.
      Profession Quests
      If you're still missing skill points to max out your Professions, do note that the Darkmoon Faire Profession quests can grant you 5 skill points, so head over to Darkmoon Island to get them.
      Inky Black Potions
      Don't forget to stock up on Inky Black Potion to enjoy dark mode in Shadowlands and other regions! Here's a showcase of Bastion. Image courtesy of Reddit user nasKo_zomboid.

      Head over to our Darkmoon Faire guide to learn more about the event!
