8.1 Tides of Vengeance: Vol’jin | The Shadow Hunter Questline

When you complete the “Battle of Dazar’alor” quest (by defeating Jaina) — which is part of the 8.1 Tides of Vengeance questline, turn in. Later, talk to Nathanos Blightcaller at the Banshee’s Wail boat in Port of Zandalar.

Complete the follow up quests:

  1. The King’s Death
  2. The Return of Derek Proudmoore

At that point, there is no follow up quest referring you to the Vol’jin questline. However, go to Baine Bloodhoof at The Great Seal in Dazar’alor. He will give you the quest: “Wisdom of the Warchief.” This starts “The Shadow Hunter” questline.

The Pride of Kul Tiras Achievement Questline

The first quest in the Pride of Kul Tiras achievement questline is obtained when Alliance players complete the Loremaster of Kul Tiras achievement which entails finishing the story quests in Drustvar, Tirigarde and Stormsong Valley.

The Pride of Kul Tiras questline sets the player into searching for Lady Jaina Proudmoore, last seen when her mother Katherine allowed Lady Ashven to take her into custody and to arrange her fate.

The questline culminates with the Siege of Boralus, and Katherine welcoming Lady Jaina and the Alliance. A requirement to unlock the Kul Tiran Allied Race.

Activision Blizzard Layoffs 8% of its Employees

While the Activision Blizzard Q4 2018 conference was taking place, Blizzard Entertainment president J. Allen Brack announced this: “To better support these priorities, we need to reorganize some of our non-development teams. As a result, we will be reducing the number of non-development positions in North America and anticipate a related process in our regional offices over the coming months subject to local requirements.

I need to criticize the term used there. Non-development positions. I have parroted the same term in my previous article and even in Twitter, and I apologize for doing so. It is wrong.

Through my Twitter feed of 500+ Blizzard Entertainment employees, and a separate feed of over a 100 former employees, I have been able to list nearly 40 confirmed layoffs.

Among them, there are Community Managers, Quality Assurance (QA), eSports staff, artists, marketing, licensing, Public Relations, and Creative writers.

That’s just 40 that have been mentioned under my radar. There are countless who possibly don’t have a Twitter account, or that have departed silently.

Activision Blizzard 2018 Q4 Transcript

The most dramatic part of the recent conference call is that Activision Blizzard plans to layoff 8% of its employees, which confirms the recent Kotaku leak.

However, that percent can be misleading in terms of the amount of employees to be laid off per studio. Activision Blizzard is composed of Activision (with a big umbrella of IPs and studios), King (Candy Crush), and Blizzard Entertainment.

Anthem Customization: The Good

The Anthem Open Demo started on February 1 and will last until February 3. Open Demo as in everyone can play it with no strings attached. Free.

Download the Origin client, then browse games, and pick Anthem. The Anthem page will have a “Try it First” button which downloads the Open demo.

Pre-order Anthem (PC/XBox One/PS4) if interested.

Anthem is by far giving players a lot of javelin customization. You can pick the color from set choices or you can open the color wheel and choose the color and shade (light/dark) of your choice.
