This sort of terrible writing in game is what happens when a company is more interested in pushing pc garbage at you to fit a narrative than they are in just writing a good story. No one likes or cares about Pelagos. He's boring and annoying, but because blizz needed to push a LGBTQRSTUV character at us, they decided that the big, important part of our patch story would be this lame character becoming super powerful, even though it makes no sense for this weak little nobody to become the ultimate decider of all fates. This moment had zero impact to anyone I've talked to. It's just another "meh" moment in this story.

Your comment reads that you don't like Pelagos specifically because they're trans and are upset that Blizzard made them trans. That's called bigotry. LGBTQ people exist, and by their very existence they deserve to be included in the fictional stories we tell.

That's how you wrongly interpreted my comment. Pelagos was just a flat, awful character. It doesn't change the fact that he existed only because blizz felt the need to put the flavor of the week lefty trend into the game as a major character trait.

Pelagos is not "trans" at all he went from a literal woman to a literal man with soul"magic" so hes now just a "real" dude

No matter who he was or who he is. It's just... A random dude becoming the most important thing in Shadowlands. It's like... While writing the story they forgot that they destroyed Jailer and the automa Arbiter and then realized that they have to put someone in this place. "Oh remember that Pelagos dude only the Kyrian really know about? Let's make him Arbiter!" And then they all POGGED at each other.

Needless to say, I belong in the LGBT label, and I still hated how they promote Pelagos only for being the supposedly first trans character. Also, his "story" is seriously weak, and making him the next Arbiter makes no sense at all.

How is this a "lefty trend"? Or are you one of those people who believe LGBT people are some sort of "ideology"? Plus, as it was mentioned, it was just a magical soul thing, so he's just a man now, not really comparable to the real world. Even his identity was just a flavor text. Not a major character as well, so likely won't appear after this expansion.

      We have another sign of just how close we are to 9.2.5 launching, as Martin Benjamins, a well known dataminer and Community Council member, has spotted that the patch has moved to the production hardware and software side of the PTR! With yesterday's build being labeled as a release candidate and the fact that the move to this side of the PTR usually marks 1 week before the actual launch, could we be seeing the patch as soon as next week?
       
      The big argument against this is we still haven't heard any official announcements from Blizzard on the release date, but usually with patches they do so with the Season ending soon posts, and considering Season 3 is NOT ending when patch 9.2.5 launches, this might be less of an issue. Official patch date announcements tend to come right around the first release candidate appearing so let's see if we hear anything official soon, but until then, there's a solid likelihood of 9.2.5 arriving a lot sooner than expected!

      Fishbones06 is back with more glyph options, this time some very angry and very polearm-y Warriors, and we paired that with one of their earlier works with blacksmith-themed elemental glyphs as well!
      Starting with the Warriors, we have some Alliance/Horde themed ones, with a banner linked to Rallying Cry and polearm + shield combo (which is a bit more of a transmog) on the Alliance side, and all the anger linked to Dragon Roar for Horde. (The image is animated, just click on it if it doesn't auto-start.)
      Then there's an older concept, with some blacksmith-themed Shaman elementals:

      Source.
      And finally, here are some comments from the glyph-maker:
      Exactly, I started making them because if you go to any wow forum, the community has list and list of ideas for Glyphs, but no visual representation.
      ...
      The thrust animation and the ready idle stance is real. The only thing I changed was the arm holding the polearm.
      ...
      I agree, the artist truly are the heroes. I'm just playing and changing the assets they've provided. On classes I dont play much, I rely on class forums on what they would want to see. My goal for this, is to just bring visual representation to these ideas and to push blizzard into consider them and to see the excitement from the community for something like this.

      Content creator MGM found out during Patch 9.2.5 testing that cross-faction queue works for Timewalking raids, which is a neat feature!
      Cross-faction grouping comes with a few limitations; you must be Battle.net Friends with the person you're inviting or you both need to be members of the same cross-faction community. So far, we thought the feature was limited to Mythic+, raids, and Legacy raids.
      It turns out you can queue up for Timewalking raids cross-faction as well. You can learn more about cross-faction play in our overview.

      We're looking at some interesting Genn Greymane audio files from Patch 9.2.5. This post contains spoilers.
      The audio files play during the "Eyes of the Wolf" quest when Greymane sends you to meet Calia Menethil in Brill and spy on the Forsaken as they're gathering in Tirisfal Glades for an unknown purpose.
      Transcript
      Genn Greymane: You must don a disguise and travel deep into enemy territory. Do not let down your guard.
      Genn Greymane: In life, Calia Menethil endured more than her share of sorrow. She may not be a typical undead, but the Forsaken are not to be trusted. 
      Placeholder for tweet 1528767413696733184 Sylvanas no longer unites the Forsaken and your goal is to find out what they are up to. Genn also says "Calia is no typical undead". Do you think Genn will try to hunt her down or attack the Forsaken at their gathering?
      I wouldn't be surprised if he secretly planned a coup. After all, it was Sylvanas who killed his son Liam Greymane.
      Most of the Patch 9.2.5 content remains encrypted, so we don't know exactly what will transpire until the patch hits live servers.

      Blizzard has updated some abilities cast by Nathrezim Infiltrators in the first Release Candidate of Patch 9.2.5.
      Introduction to the Season 4 Affix
      The Season 4 affix is called Shrouded and causes groups of mobs to hide a dreadlord that gives you stackable buffs upon death.
      Shrouded - Nathrezim infiltrators have disguised themselves among enemies throughout the dungeon. Cartel Ta will reward you handsomely for assisting in their capture. How Does the Season 4 Affix Work?
      At the beginning of each Mythic+ Dungeon, there is a bounty hunter NPC who offers you Critical Strike/Haste/Mastery/Versatility buffs for each dreadlords you help capture, stacking up to 20 times.
      Bounty: Critical Strike - Critical Strike increased by 2% for each dreadlord captured. This effect stacks. Bounty: Haste - Haste increased by 2% for each dreadlord captured. This effect stacks. Bounty: Mastery - Mastery increased by 2% for each dreadlord captured. This effect stacks. Bounty: Versatility - Versatility increased by 2% for each dreadlord captured. This effect stacks. After you make your choice, you will be granted a 2% buff to the secondary stat of your choice.
      Nathrezim Infiltrators
      Throughout the dungeons, some NPCs will have a purple aura and the Disguised debuff. These will transform into Nathrezim Infiltrators when you enter combat. Nathrezim Infiltrators replace regular trash mobs in dungeons, so this might directly affect Mythic routes.
      Nathrezim Infiltrators cannot be stunned or death-gripped. The spells are not interruptible.

      When the dreadlord is captured you will receive another +2% secondary stat increase (on top of what you had at the beginning, as this buff stacks up to 20. Shortly after the dreadlord is captured, you'll receive another buff which restores 6% health and mana every second for 3 seconds.
      Restoration - Restoring 6% health and mana every 1 sec. What Abilities do Nathrezim Infiltrators Use?
      Nathrezim Infiltrators will use 3 abilities. The first one is a frontal cone which reduces healing received for a short duration, the second one heals the dreadlord for a portion of the damage inflicted and the third one puts the player into a statis.
      Blizzard adjusted two abilities used by Nathrezim Infiltrators in the Patch 9.2.5 Release Candidate this week. We highlighted the changes below.
      Vampiric Claws - Strikes the target inflicting 50 45 Shadow damage and healing for [ 10,000% of E1 ]% of the damage dealt. (20 yd range, 3 sec cooldown, 1.5 sec cast)
      Carrion Swarm - Inflicts 35 38 Shadow damage to enemies in front of the dreadlord and reduces healing received by 25% 50% for 10 sec. (100 yd range, 3 sec cooldown, 2.5 sec cast)
      Nightmare Cloud - Creates a wandering Nightmare Cloud for until cancelled. Coming into contact with a Nightmare Cloud afflicts players with [email protected] (3 sec cooldown, 2 sec cast)
