I like this typo. I prefer my enemies to die instead of the "ENOUGH" trope. 😜

And this crap is available by default but unrestricted flying has to be earned through another pathfinder. Honestly, why does Blizzard hate normal flying so much?

Not sure what they're on about, Ashes definitely works in Beta.

When actively dragonflying with Ashes though, the long streamers disappear (they reappear when you touch the ground and you can tell they were there when flying but not visible). People have complained and last I heard they were talking about re-enabling the streamers in skyriding mode, but I haven't checked beta lately.

      Starting with the War Within pre-patch, Blizzard has removed the one-per-server limit on Dracthyr Evokers.
      Players have noticed that they can now have multiple Dracthyr Evokers on a single realm.

      Blizzard have shared a new cosmetic bundle coming to the shop, featuring 5 weapons. There's Sargeras' swords, Xal'atath's staff and two titan-based weapons, with the bundle leaving on August 30th. The bundle doesn't seem to have landed in the store quite yet, but should be there soon.

      Blizzard have posted the known issues list for the pre-patch that just launched. From Warbanks being disabled to class and UI problems, there's a lot to check out, so let's get to it.
      Known Issues (Source)
      The War Within Pre-expansion patch (11.0.0) is now live. Please read on for a list of known issues that we’re working on and further information about this update.
      11.0.0 KNOWN ISSUES
      Updated July 23

      Along with the launch of the pre-expansion patch (11.0.0), we’ve temporarily disabled the Warband Warbank while we work on a critical issue.
      This is a top priority and we intend to enable the Warbank as soon as possible.
      Thank you!
      Classes
      Some specializations may encounter issues when loading a previously saved Talent loadout. This can be resolved with a character relog. Death Knight Unholy Death Knights can sometimes only receive one stack of Festermight for the first proc of Sudden Doom after casting Death Coil. Sudden Doom does not cause all Epidemics to critically strike. Festering Scythe does not gain benefit from Mastery: Dreadblade and does not grant stacks from Festering Wounds that burst on creature death. Raise Abomination’s Virulent Plague is only applied once. Priest Halo can pull creatures that are not in combat with the Priest. Discipline Rapture does not allow for spell-queuing casts immediately after Rapture. Shadow Idol of C’Thun is not functioning properly. Hunter Kindling Flare can sometimes fail to reveal stealthed targets when players leave its area of effect. Tendon Rip (Pet Ability) is not removed by movement-freeing abilities (like Blessing of Freedom). Marksmanship Serpent Sting & Wind Arrows from Legacy of the Windrunners are not affected by Marksmanship Mastery. Wailing Arrow is granted after 19 Wind Arrows, instead of 20. Killer Accuracy does not increase the critical strike damage of Kill Shot. Rapid Fire can be canceled by Kill Zone when it is procced from the Season 4 2-piece set. Beast Mastery Bloodshed can sometimes fail to apply Basilisk Collar. Survival Flanking Strike’s pet damage does not scale with primary or secondary stats. Exposed Flank can sometimes fail to duplicate the pet’s damage. Spearhead does not increase the critical strike chance of Kill Command. Mage Fire Fire’s Ire buff tooltip description indicates a 2.5% gain even if players have 2 points in the talent. Shaman Stone Bulwark Totem’s audio & animations are slightly too loud. Elemental Flash of Lightning can sometimes fail to reduce the cooldown of Stone Bulwark Totem and Primordial Wave. Elemental Blasts from Fusion of Elements can incorrectly consume Magma Chamber. Elemental Blasts from Fusion of Elements can trigger Storm Frenzy. Lava Beam does not benefit from Storm Frenzy. Thunderstrike Ward cannot trigger from Lava Beam. Restoration Spouting Spirits does not properly reduce healing beyond 5 targets. Spell queuing Lava Burst after a Healing Surge was incorrectly consuming Master of the Elements when Lava Burst is instant cast. Rogue Death From Above (PvP Talent) does not scale up to 7 combo points. Assassination Envenom’s buff persists for 2 seconds longer than the tooltip indicates. Ruptures applied via Indiscriminate Carnage will always apply 3 Serrated Bone Spikes, even with less than 3 spikes prepared. Subtlety Premeditation does not benefit Shiv, Shuriken Toss, or Shuriken Storm. Premeditation is consumed if players do not open with a combo point generating spell from stealth. Warrior Arms Bloodletting can cause Mortal Strike to apply Rend to targets above 35% health. Protection Spell Reflection has a small chance to not properly reflect spells. Dungeons and Raids
      Abilities may be missing form the Dungeon Journal while on Mythic+ difficulty. Quests
      Quest objectives for the Legion quest “To Be Prepared” may not be visible. Quest objectives for “Archives: The First Disk” may not be visible. User Interface
      For some players, upon login, action bars 2-8 are unintentionally disabled on all characters. Players in this state will have to manually re-enable any of your extra action bars through Options > Gameplay > Action Bars. Pre-existing keybinds and spells should display with the re-enabled action bars.
      New characters’ (level 10 and below) spells on the Action Bars may not save on logout. The same issue may cause some existing characters to have all spells wiped from their Action Bar on logout if they do not create a new loadout.
      Group Manager Pressing the reset button in Group Manager UI will cause a lua error. Holding down a used marker button makes the highlight disappear. The remove all button does not work for unit markers. Spellbook After the Spellbook goes from minimized to maximized, the Click Cast Settings frame will not function. Typing /reload in chat will resolve the issue. Professions The Concentrate button disappears when selecting and unselecting finishing reagents. The Patron tab does not honor a filter when switching to other tabs and back. The Recraft button is shown after completing an order. Finishing reagents can show increased recipe difficulty. The tracker is missing the green checkmark if the player hides all Dungeon and Bonus Objective Trackers beforehand. The Rewards Frame may disappear when accepting an order. The quality preview when using Concentration may be inaccurate. Quest and Map Right-clicking on a tracked World Objective may cause a Lua error. Gossip windows may display the incorrect icon for an in progress wrapper quest. Accepted Daily Quests may show the wrong icon. The Lore Book help tip may appear outside of the log frame. The Quest objective icon may still be present after disabling the quest objectives map filter. Clicking on the Great Vault world map icon may not open the UI. Warbands
      Entering the world on a character on a different realm may result in a blank character select screen. Some account-wide reputations may not show correctly across all characters.
