This week in WoW:
ENDING Tuesday (reset) : Timewalking: WoD
PvP Brawl: Deepwind Dunk
BEGINS Monday: WoW’s 17th Anniversary Nov. 15th - Dec. 6th
BEGINS Tuesday (reset): Battleground Bonus Event
PvP Brawl: Shado-Pan Showdown
9.2 - Eternity’s End:
It looks like they pulled a WoD with Shadowlands and cut a Raid and lots of story from the original plans for the expansion, given that Steve [Danuser] said that “..., the patch serves as the end of one book of the Warcraft saga.”
That tells me that the main story culminates in the raid Sepulcher of the First Ones.
Sepulcher of the First Ones, a raid that has a staggered release, first 8 bosses in week 1 and the last 3 in week 2 of season 3.
I feel like, but this is not a thing i know, obviously, we got shafted, much like in WoD.
It remains to be seen what 9.2.5 brings, with regards to another mini raid like Ruby Dragonshrine or the Halls of Valor raid Trial of Valor but so far, i don’t see any story aspects involving Arthas, Azshara, Garrosh (other than Garrosh blowing up in one cinematic) and if that’s going to be his “send off” i’m mad, i don’t like Garrosh, but that is not worthy of a pillar of the WoW universe.
Ion in an interview after the patch was revealed: “...You will therefore be able to wear two legendary items at a time, one from each category, at the end of your journey. "
One standard Legendary and one Covenant Legendary item.
So you have to have more than 2 up to date legendaries if you want to switch covenants frequently since the legendary tied to covenants will only work if it’s covenant is active.

Crafting the Ishgardian way. Unlocking the Firmament and the Diadem to craft and level a
The battle against the life raid boss continues. I had an odd thought the other day: if you wipe against the real life raid boss does that mean you died in real life? I suppose maybe not always, maybe if you fail a real life raid you just get into one of those special cutscenes where the raid boss shows mercy and tells you to get out and don't come back until you're stronger or something.
Anyway, today's Blast from the Past is from episode 445. Enjoy!
