Enhancement Shamans get another shot at their Hidden Artifact appearance this week on live servers!
Enhancement Shamans can loot The Warmace of Shirvallah from World Boss Levantus this week. Here's what the appearance looks like:
The easiest way to reach the boss is to use the portal to Azsuna from your faction's portal room.
Search for the epic world quest Terror of the Deep in Azsuna to find out the exact location of the boss. At Level 70, you can solo the boss easily.
It's worth noting The Warmace of Shirvallah is not a 100% drop. The appearance also has a chance to drop from Flotsam, another Legion World Boss that spawned a few weeks ago, or from Helya in the Trial of Valor. You need to have Doomhammer for the appearance to drop.
Week 5 of the latest patch sees a lot of stability and meta-hardening, but we do also see a new No.1 in the raw DPS charts and at least a little bit of movement elsewhere as well, so let's dive in.
Warcraft Logs Points
The below logs are based on POINTS, and not actual damage or healing, meaning they log the timed completion for the specs, with higher keys getting more points, obviously. The time in which the dungeon is completed is also a factor, but a much, much smaller one, as it grants very few points if you do it significantly faster than just any in-time completion. We're also using the Normalized Aggregate Scores numbers, for clarity, meaning the top spec is marked as 100 and then the rest are ranked in relation to that peak point.
95th percentile DPS
We have a pretty solid top 4 already, after the top 3 seemed pretty much locked in in the last few weeks, so the meta is indeed expanding! Retribution comes in at No.5 to stir things up a little, gaining an impressive 2 spots and pushing Balance and Havoc down. The Warlocks are still sticking together in the same two spots, except Demonology is coming out on top this time, and the Warriors are taking the team-sport idea and running with it, gaining 4 spots in 10th and 11th!

The generalist bracket is so stable we may as well call it stale, as we have to go all the way down to the final top 10 spot to see any change, where Windwalker jumps in to the final spot and takes Fury's place! Outside the top 10 we see Enhancement gain a lot of ground, and Survival manage to dig itself out of, gaining 5 spots in 13th.

U.GG DPS Rankings
U.gg's rankings are based on actual DPS taken from Warcraft Logs data, focusing on the top players and span the past two weeks.
Havoc takes the reins in the raw DPS charts, taking Demonology down! We then have a bit of stability down until 6th where Balance gains 3 spots, while Windwalker overtakes Retribution, and all 3 took down Unholy. Fire sneaks a little bit upwards to close out the top 10, while Affliction and Assassination just can't see to get out of the bottom 3, which is now taken by three A-titled specs, despite Augmentation very much not belonging there.

Blizzard has retroactively buffed the bad luck protection for Fyr'alath, and we're now witnessing the increased drop chance firsthand: a single Heroic Fyrakk kill yielded 6 legendary quest items!
If you've missed the news, Blizzard buffed the effects of Greater Ember of Fyr'alath that permanently increase your chances of acquiring Fyr'alath the Dreamrender and this buff applies retroactively to embers already looted.
In case you haven't caught up with the latest news just yet, Blizzard has buffed the effects of Greater Ember of Fyr'alath and Lesser Ember of Fyr'alath, which permanently up your odds of obtaining Fyr'alath the Dreamrender. The buff also applies to any embers you've previously collected.
Reddit user Cagu95 highlighted this buff by sharing a screenshot of the chat where 6 Fyr'alath the Dreamrenders dropped at once, demonstrating the effectiveness of the bad luck protection buff.
Another player shared a screenshot of a chat where it shows that during a raid, 5 quest items dropped from Heroic Fyrakk.
Reports also indicate that players who have collected 28 Greater Embers have had success looting the Fyr'alath axe from Fyrakk. So, if you've accumulated a lot of embers without any luck, your chances of getting the axe should be pretty good.
And the list goes on and on!
Here's the story of a lucky player who received a decade's worth of mounts in just a few days!
Reddit user brbpizzatime shared some rare mounts that dropped for them in the game only a few days apart.
On February 15, the excitement began when they obtained the Fiery Warhorse's Reins from Attumen the Huntsman in Karazhan, a mount known for its 1% chance of dropping. Although there's a slight discrepancy between the player's claim of the drop date and the armory's record (February 16), the drop is undoubtedly genuine.
The streak continued on February 16, with the player securing the Felsteel Annihilator from Mythic Archimonde in Hellfire Citadel. But the surprises didn't end there.
By February 18, they had added two more rare mounts to their collection: Shackled Ur'zul from Mythic Argus the Unmaker and Mimiron's Head from Yogg-Saron, marking two rare mount drops in a single day. Yet, the player's fortune soared even higher on February 19, when they collected four rare mounts in one day:
Ashes of Al'ar from Kael'thas Sunstrider in Tempest Keep. Reins of the Onyxian Drake from Onyxia in Onyxia's Lair. Smoldering Egg of Millagazor from Ragnaros in Firelands. Flametalon of Alysrazor from Alysrazor in Firelands. For those skeptical of this extraordinary tale, the player's armory profile stands as proof of their incredible luck.
The player also added they've bought a lottery ticket.
We have more legendary axes incoming very soon! Blizzard have announced that they are significantly buffing the effects of all Embers of Fyr’alath starting today, and applying retroactively to any you've already gathered.
Many aspects of Dragonflight have reflected a shift in philosophy towards designs that allow us to enjoy reaching a point where we feel “done” with a character’s power progression. Legendaries returned as an exception to this. Legendaries are intended to be a special reward that some players would aspire to obtain over the course of a season, demonstrating a display of excellence in the most challenging content.
As Season 3 has unfolded, we’ve increasingly heard feedback from frustrated players who have been clearing Amirdrassil weekly on Heroic difficulty with no Fyr’alath in sight, and we want to give those players a surer path to achieving their goal.
Earlier today, with a hotfix that is now live, we significantly increased the effect of all Embers of Fyr’alath for players who receive them. This increase is retroactive and applies to all players whether or not you’ve consumed any Embers you may have.
As always, thank you for your feedback!
