What We've Been Doing:
New information on flying in Shadowlands:
It looks like flying will be unlocked after completing the 2nd chapter of the Chains of Domination storyline.
Flying in Shadowlands will enable you to fly in the original 4 covenant zones!
NOT in the Maw or Korthia (the new area added in 9.1, that is part of the Maw).
Shadowlands Cook : maxed out cooking to 75 just now.
Denying the Drought : All buildings in covenant upgraded to Rank II. If you do 2 to 3 anima quests you get 440 to 600 anima from the drop items per calling.
Dungeon Achievement : De Other Side (Heroic), very long dungeon. Sheer size and lot of mobs.
Pet battle dungeons : Deadmines, Wailing Critters, got 2 pets again, the Young Venomblood and the Pocket Cannon.
Got a new guest for ember court : Grandmaster Vole, he asks you to kill 5 players or bribe him 250 gold.
Troll Hunter dinged 44
Cooking quest to unlock 225-300: Finished collecting the Zesty Clam Meat.
Need the Alterac Cheese and Giant Eggs to finish the quest you get in Tanaris.
Torgast will be going down from 6 to 5 levels in 9.1.
From Preach’s Interview with Ion Hazzikostas
They saw in Draenor that there was a gap there with no new systems. This is where the idea to add temporary systems came from.
Legion was the most successful of this system largely because it was new to players.
However, Legion felt awful at the end when everything was taken away.
The team wants to find a middle ground. Ion uses the example of "a mage going to the Shadowlands, learning new things, and coming back better for it."
The team agrees that they want to move away from borrowed power.
There has always been some sort of borrowed power in the game (tier sets) that you eventually leave behind, but there has to be a balance.
Sorry that it has been a while. Here is another blast from the past brought to you by episode 436. Enjoy!
