      Domination Socket Helper is an addon that prevents you from replacing/destroying Shards of Domination in Patch 9.1.
      Shards of Domination should always be extracted using Soulfire Chisel. However, if you decide to replace them, they will be destroyed in the process, which is where Domination Socket Helper comes in handy.
       What Does the Addon Do?
      Prevents you from replacing a Domination Shard and adds a button next to the socket which safely removes the shard.

      Destroying the item or selling it to a vendor is also blocked.

      I will add more functionality when I have time. (Hopefully, a window that lets you add shards without dragging them from your bags)
      You can download Domination Socket Helper here.

      It's been a big few days for the Race to World First, as the EU re-clear meant an actually pretty tense race for World 3rd, as Pieces and BDGG went at it trying to see who can defeat Sylvanas first and we got 5 guilds past the Banshee today!
      While the top 2 has been determined for a while now, that doesn't mean the race is over, and we had yet another EU vs. US face-off on our hands! We actually had 8 guilds progressing on the final boss of the Sanctum today, but only BDGG, Pieces and Method were actually close to a kill. After a lengthy re-clear, both Pieces and Method were back progressing on the boss, and Pieces were doing well, managing to get under 50% in 134 pulls, and then after a few wipes, this happened:

      Yep, that's right. 0.16%. THE closest any guild has come to defeating Sylvanas... without actually defeating her. It took Pieces over an hour to recover from that close of a call, but they did manage to focus up and get that extra tiny fraction of HP down, claiming and defending their previous World 3rd!

      BDGG were the biggest  movers in this tier, as they caught up to Pieces quite quickly and gained 5 spots on the world stage since Nathria, earning their World 4th!

      And finally, we got our 5th place guild today, as Method also improved from their Nathria performance, climbing 2 spots!

      We still have plenty of guilds still progressing on Sylvanas, 6 to be exact, 5 spots in the top 10, and the Asia first yet to be crowned! And as a final treat, here's Complexity-Limit's multi-PoV World 2nd video:

      More hotfixes for 9.1 arrive, with more Shard, class and Torghast fixes!
      July 22 (Source)
      Achievements
      Fixed an issue where Horde players who have earned the Hall of Fame: Sylvanas (Horde) achievement were not granted the Famed Bane of The Banshee Queen title. Classes
      Priest Fixed an issue where Bwonsamdi's Pact (Runecarving Power) disappeared prematurely if Fae Guardians (Night Fae Ability) lasted longer than 20 seconds. Items and Rewards
      Shards of Domination Blood Link's target application has been made more reliable. Using the Silver Shardhide Whistle toy while in a Druid form will now cancel the form and activate the toy instead of failing and putting the toy on cooldown. Torghast, Tower of the Damned
      Anima Powers Priest Fixed an issue where Bwonsamdi's Pact (Runecarving Power) was not benefitting from Dreamspun Mushrooms (Anima Power). Torments Avenger will no longer spam sound effects on every kill.

      The state of California's Department of Fair Employment and Housing has filed a lawsuit against Activision Blizzard.
      As initially reported by Bloomberg Law, the lawsuit comes after a 2-year investigation and claims, among other things, that the company fosters a "frat boy" culture where female employees are subjected to constant sexual harassment, unequal pay, and retaliation, with cube crawls in which male employees "drink copious amounts of alcohol as they crawl their way through various cubicles in the office and often engage in inappropriate behavior toward female employees". It also claims Activision Blizzard's leadership has not addressed any of the listed issues nor prevented them in the workplace.
      The WoW team was also talked about specifically: "Female employees working for the World of Warcraft team noted that male employees and supervisors would hit on them, make derogatory comments about rape, and otherwise engage in demeaning behavior, the agency alleges." Former WoW Senior Creative Director Alex Afrasiabi and Blizzard President J. Allen Brack are mentioned in the suit as well, and Afrasiabi's inappropriate behavior was allegedly well known and not handled well by Brack. Afrasiabi did quietly leave the company in 2020, however. Many Blizzard employees have come out about their experiences at the company, and you can read many of them on the WoW reddit here.
      The lawsuit asks for an injunction to force Activision Blizzard to comply with workplace protections, deliver unpaid wages, pay adjustments, back pay, lost wages and benefits for female employees.
      A spokesperson for Activision Blizzard sent a response to IGN, claiming the suit includes "distorted, and in many cases false, descriptions of Blizzard’s past" and that "The picture the DFEH paints is not the Blizzard workplace of today. Over the past several years and continuing since the initial investigation started, we’ve made significant changes to address company culture and reflect more diversity within our leadership teams." There's more to the response which you can read at the end of the article here.
      Here's a link to the full lawsuit, which you should definitely take a look at.

      More hotfixes arrive to 9.1 with Renown now dropping in Torghast, class tweaks and more!
      July 21 (Source)
      Classes
      Druid Born Anew’s (Conduit) primary stat bonus reduces to 20 upon the beginning of a new encounter. Developers’ note: The intent of this bonus is to provide a benefit when using resurrections in combat. But it is best to avoid situations where players might feel compelled to min/max something like this before starting a pull. Priest Shadow Shadow Crash’s (Talent) ground visual will now match the area effect. Void Volley ’s (PvP Talent) ground visuals will now match the area effect and has more defined edges. Warrior Arms Fixed an issue where Swift Patrol (Niya Soulbind) caused the auto-attack timer to reset. Creatures and NPCs
      Players now have a 2 second grace period to keep their vision of targets within the area contained by the Soul Chains between the Soul Cages during the Mor’geth encounter. Reduced the number of Prince Renathals in Sinfall. Press F to pay respects. Dungeons and Raids
      Sanctum of Domination Defeating Sylvanas Windrunner on Mythic difficulty will now reward 2 Vengeance’s Reins. Remnant of Ner’zhul Players can no longer cause a second orb to become non-interactable while carrying an Orb of Torment. Plaguefall You must now defeat the first three bosses of the dungeon before the door to Margrave Stradama opens on all difficulties. Developers’ note: The first two bosses of the dungeon were frequently being skipped in lower-difficulty dungeons, typically by groups who were trying to earn Renown much faster than intended. To improve players’ Renown earnings, we’ve also added a chance for Renown to be earned by completing layers in Torghast (see hotfix below). Items and Rewards
      Teleporter Repair Kits should no longer have a Unique count and will now stack to 50. Repaired Riftkeys will also now stack to 50. Developers’ note: Early in development, Teleporter Repair Kits and Repaired Riftkeys were only available from the vendor. Based on player feedback of not knowing if they were worth purchasing, we decided to have them drop occasionally as well. Now that these items dropped and became out of player’s control, we should have removed the unique cap on the Teleporter Repair Kits then. Also, since you have access to purchasing the Teleporter Repair Kits or Repaired Rift Keys, we are disabling them from going to mail if you loot one with a full inventory so they will no longer fill up your mailbox. The item levels of Conduits sold by the Rated PvP vendor have been corrected. Fixed an issue where the Salvaged Fusion Amplifier was not dropping for Marksmanship and Beastmaster Hunters. Quests
      Fixed an issue during “Nal’ragas” that caused internal text to be visible to users of certain nameplate addons. Torghast, Tower of the Damned
      Renown is now a possible reward from Torghast completions, with better chances at Renown coming from higher Torghast difficulties.
