The new Dracthyr race provides a variety of features to customize your character including bold horn options, a diverse palette of colors to choose from, and more. In this preview, we show off more of the choices available for you to fully express your Dracthyr form.

Choose from a variety of options for your Dracthyr including horns, scales, snouts, eyes, and more.

Embrace your individuality with a range of expressive colors.

Wear your armor with pride.

(The video wasn't showing up but luckily LeystTV resolved that issue)

Several body options will be available for you to choose from during creation.

This is just a sampling of the variety of options that players will have at their fingertips to create their Dracthyr Evoker to carry them into new adventures in the Dragon Isles. Who will you become?

I still think the Dracthyr are by far the weirdest looking race. Even more weird than the Vulpera *shudder*. Lowkey wished we can have the option to look like the Dakonids like in the Black/blue Dragonflight. They have the better models IMO, even if they wouldn't be able to fly

Good that they have some body options (even though they are still quite lanky), wish they added different body types to other races. Still not a fan of what they look like, it appears they were initially based on Worgen female model and then modified (not the first time they reused it, Mantid being one of examples).

I think the models look great, the design says hero/heroin rather then the clearly enemy styled draknoid.
I.E Less spikey, the face design is more inviting.
granted the draknoids haven't had an update in a long while, so maybe we'll get to dee higher res models in dragonflight.

even though it doesn't seem like the wear normal armour, I'm defintley loving the breadth of options you'd always be able to see on your character.
Unlike class/race combos like the druid, where all the work that goes into customizing the humanoid form, gets lost unless you player a healer, or glyph moonkin. 
the diffrent styles of horns spikes and scales, allow much more personal expression...

which I think will all be lost on the meta-centric wow community

Uncommon Patron

Demon Hunters, Lightforged Draenei, Nightborne, all get to show off some body art only if we transmog their stuff to nearly naked (and obv, that doesn't usually fly for legs...) 

I'm looking forward to seeing all this in the barber shop someday

Hey, maybe Blizz could offer an option to pinch coloration from the gear you're wearing on the humanoid form?

ps. autocorrect knows how to spell Draenei.  I didn't train it to this.  Maybe someone at Apple plays WoW.

We finally get to be dragons instead of trying to kill them. I like it.

If you type a word enough and don't let auto-correct fix it, then it assumes the word is legit. It does learn, just not in the advanced, taking over the world AI sense.

      Blizzard has buffed the Bronze you receive from bronze caches by 25% in MoP Remix to make up for today's Frog farm nerf.
      In a hotfix released today, Blizzard has buffed bronze caches in MoP Remix to grant 25% more Bronze. Players can obtain various types of bronze caches by earning achievements, completing daily quests, or clearing the first random Heroic of the day.
      Minor Bronze Cache now gives 200 250 Bronze. Lesser Bronze Cache now gives 400 500 Bronze. Bronze Cache now gives 600 750 Bronze. Greater Bronze Cache now gives 1,000 1,250 Bronze In addition to the buffs, Greater Bronze Cache can now drop from bosses on Normal Difficulty, further increasing the amount of Bronze you get from raids.

      We're exploring spec diversity for each key level in Dragonflight Season 4!
      Reddit user RaptorAnka pulled some interesting data from EU/US WoW Game Data APIs and created a visualization showing spec diversity in the ongoing season and how it changes with each key level.
      The color intensity (high red for low diversity, low green for high diversity) indicates that certain specs are highly favored, leading to less diversity within those roles.

      DPS Specs
      Augmentation Evoker is very dominant, especially at higher key levels, consistently appearing in the top spot. Shadow Priest has strong presence across all key levels, often appearing right after Augmentation Evoker. Fire Mage shows up frequently, mostly at higher key levels. Frost Mage also appears regularly, but not as much as Fire Mage. Tank Specs
      Vengeance Demon Hunter is the top tank, maintaining near 100% representation. Blood Death Knight appears more frequently at mid-to-lower key levels as the Vengeande DH representation decreases slightly. We see some Guardian Druid presence at mid-levels. Healer Specs
      Restoration Druid is very dominant, especially at higher key levels. Mistweaver Monk gains representation at mid-to-lower keys. Holy Paladin appears more frequently in the mid-to-low key levels. Source: Reddit

      Horde Timerunners can purchase shirts in Silvermoon City during the Landfall Campaign in MoP Remix.
      During the Landfall Campaign in MoP Remix, Horde Timerunners will find themselves in Silvermoon City with the opportunity to buy special BoE Horde shirts from Andra.

      The exact location of the vendor is marked by the player arrow in the included screenshot by Nidocide.

      If you're curious, attempting to leave the city will teleport your character to Jade Forest, as confirmed by the original poster (OP).
      A player asked the OP if it's possible to mail these shirts cross-faction to another Timerunner. Unfortunately, the OP couldn't test this as they had progressed too far in the quest chain, making a return to Silvermoon City impossible.

      Update: the farm has been nerfed a little! Lesser Charms no longer drop, making it less lucrative.

      It didn't take long for players to find the absolute best way to farm in Remix: Mists of Pandaria! And no, we're not talking about the Tillers' farm!
      The Timeless Isle and its frogs are back and are the focus of all the farming going on at the moment, as it seems to be the best way to get pretty much everything you want from the event! The frogs are elites and tend to hyper spawn (meaning they have an incredibly fast spawn rate when enough players kill them quickly enough), especially when farmed in groups. You can find the frogs around 65, 75.

      They drop the event currency, Bronze, items you can disenchant into Bronze, Lesser Charms which you can use to increase your reputation with most Pandaria factions and get more Bronze, Timeless Coins for Timeless Isle rewards, and even Epic Threads for the Cloak of Infinite Potential! One player even reported getting 15,000k Bronze, 100,000 Timeless Coins, 3,000 Lesser Charms, and many gems is just an hour!
      As the method has become more popular, actually getting to tag the mobs is the real trick here, or you need to find a time when there are fewer players there.
      The community is split on the issue, as some are enjoying the very fast speed of rewards, but others aren't too happy with the very boring activity being the go-to if you want to get things done fast.
      Here's a video going over the method, and showcasing some intense frog action!

      So if you want tot try this out, good luck with the mob tagging and/or finding a less populated area!
