Recommended Posts

In their ongoing effort to remove inappropriate references from World of Warcraft, Blizzard renamed multiple achievements in Patch 9.1.5.

The following achievements have been renamed in the first build of Patch 9.1.5.

  • "My Sack is Gigantique" has been renamed to "My Storage is Gigantique".
  • "Bros. Before Ho Ho Ho's" has been renamed to "Holiday Bromance".

On July 27, Blizzard announced they would be removing inappropriate references from the game. You can read the full message here.

While we turn to our team for guidance in our internal work to protect marginalized groups and hold accountable those who threaten them, we also want to take immediate action in Azeroth to remove references that are not appropriate for our world. This work has been underway, and you will be seeing several such changes to both Shadowlands and WoW Classic in the coming days.

lol

They've actually lost it.

Like some things are just jokes people and they don't mean anything more than that.

Wonder if they'll remove the fact that we actually mercilessly slaughter entire generations of races and whole societies for a pair of cheap boots.

Yup pretty much violence seems to be fine, but some words are not.. While I understand the bro's one, the my sack is gigantic one really has me wondering..

This might be going a little bit too far. Yet things like Steamy Romance Novel are still there. Are they going to rewrite it into something wholesome? 🤔 Also /spit emote is being removed too. What's the new meta then? Fart and burp?

I don't see the problem with this. While I doubt many, if any people actively complained, and most people never even noticed or cared, those achievements should never have been called that in the first place. I agree that changing them at this point won't really affect much but it's never to late to admit you were wrong and try to fix something.

Lame!  The funny quest names and achievement titles are some of the best parts of the game.   If you make it all "p.c." then its really going to take away the uniqueness of the game.  Quit trying to fix things that aren't broken.   Address the big issues and focus on your storylines and expansions.   You are ruining the game by trying to make things better.

That second one is hillarious though, but common sense left the office along with sanity.

They should really consider maybe renaming the whole game in the future , I mean really , come one guys , if we try hard enough and REALLY look for double meanings/modern day vulgar slang we can really turn this into a child friendly +8 age game .

Who's with me ? 

P.S : up untill they renamed the first achievement, I really didn't care to actually ponder and think of the "hidden" meaning of sack...oh well,getting old I suppose , to me it just meant a huge bag

P.P.S : huge bag....hmmm....I need to see if this means something else now,I can't be sure now of anything being interpreted the wrong way

      We've already checked out the new 9.1.5 Druid travel forms, but now we're going to find out how to get them and take an even better look at them all as LestTV gives us a tour of all the new forms!
      In short, the easiest way to get them is by just simply buying them from the Auction House, although that might up being expensive in the first weeks of the patch, so we also get to see where to get the Inscription recipes if you want to get them that way. You'll need various reputations for some of the recipes, just grind some mobs to have it drop for others, one is from the meat-craving merchant, and one even has you going back to Legion to get it!

      We have some amazing fan creations to take a look at, as Simaia finished a big project focusing on ideas Paladin "class skins" for all races, including Allied ones as well! We have Night/Moodblades for Night Elves, Blood Knights, Silver Hands and Riftblades for Void Elves, Lightblades and Shadow Knights for Fosaken and a lot more!
      Head on over to the full twitter thread to see them all in once place, or check out some highlights we picked below:
       
      Some truly impressive work there, and if you want to see all 13 new Paladin race looks, head on to the main twitter thread here. Thanks a lot to Simaia and we hope Blizzard take into account just how much players want new class/race combinations, especially for Paladins!

      After a long time waiting the final quest needed to complete the The Zovaal Shuffle achievement (for players that have been keeping up with it), the Ember Count, is now up on NA realms (and presumably on EU soon as well, once the Kyrian Assault opens later today).
      The reason the Zovaal Shuffle is important and players have been waiting since the patch launched to complete it is that it's part of the On the Offensive meta achievement (which allows you to buy Covenant-specific mounts with Death's Advance), and it in turn is part of the Breaking the Chains meta - which brings with it the Hand of Salaranga mount! However, the mount reward itself is bugged at the moment, with multiple players reporting not having received it after completing the achievement.

      If you're not sure what to do for the achievement, you need to find Gubbins, grab the Mawproof Parasol and then dance near 5 forges in Zovaal's Cauldron. You can find Gubbins in one of 4 locations: 40 41; 35 43; 32 42; 36 36 (as mentioned by MMO Champion).
