Warlords of Draenor Cinematic in 4K and 48 FPS Warlords of Draenor Cinematic in 4K and 48 FPS One of the cinematics that got us most hyped for its expansion when it first showed up, WoD's upgrade makes it even more impressive! SnazzyAI continues the WoW cinematic improvements, and it's now Warlords' time to both shine and get smoothed out! While the 4K upgrade looks great in its own right, it's the 48 FPS that's the bigger difference here, especially with the orc facial animations. World of Warcraft WoW Today at 18:13 by Starym
A New Corrupted Blood-like Outbreak? Scaling Gets Deadly A New Corrupted Blood-like Outbreak? Scaling Gets Deadly It seems the pre-patch keeps bringing us new Scourge invasion-like oddities, despite the event not starting yet! The squish/scaling hits again, this time uncomfortably mimicking the real world, as we have another possible outbreak! This one isn't quite as lethal as the original Corrupted Blood epidemic, and it's a lot harder to spread, but there's still fun/mayhem to be had.

Mythic Nyalotha Nerfs: October 23rd Mythic Ny'alotha Nerfs: October 23rd The first Mythic Ny'alotha nerfs have arrived in the Shadowlands pre-patch.

More Scourge Zombies Showing Up, But Its Still Not the Pre-patch Event More Scourge Zombies Showing Up, But It's Still Not the Pre-patch Event Well this one was quite the disappointment. After the event that caused low-level Blood Elf towns to get overrun by the Scourge turned out to be just a systemic issue with the scaling, today's visit by the undead also ended up less exciting and cool than it seemed.

Pure Class: Level 50 Without Choosing a Spec Gets Pretty Hard Pure Class: Level 50 Without Choosing a Spec Gets Pretty Hard Some strange synchronicity today as multiple players have managed to level their characters without ever choosing a spec. Now while that might sound like a relatively minor inconvenience due to the missing abilities, it turns out it's much more difficult than that. The thing making this possible is the fact that you don't get forced into a spec anymore, there's just the warning to choose one, which you can ignore.

The Madness Begins Anew: Exiles Reach Speedruns The Madness Begins Anew: Exile's Reach Speedruns Well, it didn't take long for the pre-patch to come down with end-of-expansion syndrome, which makes sense for this particular one, since we still didn't get the actual event that was supposed to lead us into the Shadowlands (and we're not sure when it's coming either).

Expansion Quality Pendulum Theory Animated! Expansion Quality Pendulum Theory Animated! So the expansion quality pendulum theory has been around a while, and it states that every second expansion since Wrath of the Lich King has been bad and the one after it good. The theory skips Burning Crusade, as it presumes two development teams, the second of which supposedly only formed during WotLK and started working on Cataclysm, and from then on we get alternating bad and then good expansions. While the whole "good and bad" expansion side of this will never be agreed upon, there is at least something to the theory, and maybe if we go with "average/ok and better than average/good" more players could at least somewhat agree.

Shadowlands Legendaries Have Hidden Effects: Shadow Priest Ravens Return Shadowlands Legendaries Have Hidden Effects: Shadow Priest Ravens Return Shadowlands brings many things with it, and one of the more interesting ones we haven't talked about yet is the fact that the legendaries are learning a thing or two from Legion artifacts, as some have hidden effects! This latest beta build has brought a Shadow Priest favorite visual effect back - a blast from the pre-Legion past, the equivalent of Glyph of Shadow Ravens has returned! Aside from this being great news for SPs, it opens up a lot of possibilities for the many other legendaries in Shadowlands and potential cool hidden effects like this one!

Sprite Darter Transmog Set Is the Most Disliked WoW Video? Sprite Darter Transmog Set Is the Most Disliked WoW Video? The new transmog set from the Blizzard store, which you can get with a 6-month subscription or for $20 in their own has been quite the controversial topic for many reasons, and it seems players are voicing their disapproval even on the announcement video itself. The Sprite Darter's Wings have been the topic of many discussions on the forums and reddit, as players talk about the merit/slippery slope of posting this type of item in the cash shop only, even if it is bundled with a subscription.

Explorer Dwarf Racial Useless in Shadowlands Explorer Dwarf Racial Useless in Shadowlands There's no Archaeology in Shadowlands, which means the dwarf Explorer racial will be useless when it comes to the secondary Profession and the new zones.  World of Warcraft WoW 5 comments Oct 21, 2020 at 20:26 by Stan
Secret Elven Island in Exiles Reach Secret Elven Island in Exile's Reach It seems there's more to Exile's Reach than we knew! You've probably noticed an island way off in the distance in the zone with a clearly Elven tower on top, but now we know you can actually get there, with some difficulty! ArmouredSpacePony took his Shaman, leveled it to 8 to get the Reincarnation self-rez, and with a whole lot of patience waited for the cooldown every time he died to fatigue on his way to the island! But luckily we don't have to go through all that, as he chronicled his visit to the island, with some Stormheim and Naga assets, as well as the Elven tower and temple, Forsaken camp, ship and more.

Was Sprite Darters Armor Supposed to be the BlizzCon 2020 Virtual Ticket Reward? Was Sprite Darter's Armor Supposed to be the BlizzCon 2020 Virtual Ticket Reward? Reddit user SGT_Didymus came with an interesting theory. They think the faerie dragon outfit was supposed to be a reward for purchasing the BlizzCon 2020 Virtual Ticket, but Blizzard decided to throw it into the store now given that there's no BlizzCon this year around.
