Shadowlands Event Server: Interview with Ion Hazzikostas

Alongside my coverage of the Shadowlands event server, I was able to take part in a group interview with Ion Hazzikostas about the expansion and WoW in general. The interview went, round robin style, from one person to the next until we ran out of time. I ended up being able to ask three questions. While there was some very juicy information revealed from others’ questions, I don’t want to steal anyone’s thunder. I’ll let those parties share those answers on their own time.

Here are the transcripts for the three questions I asked Ion and his answers.

Shadowlands Event Server: Odds and Ends

Yesterday, I had the chance to play on an event server for the initial build of the the upcoming Shadowlands beta, featuring The Maw and the venthyr covenant. I’ve decided to split up the many pictures I took into multiple articles based on theme. Here are some random other updates to be found on the event build.

Oribos received a few cosmetic updates. There are now tons of broker camps surrounding the city, but they lack NPCs. Sometimes guards walk past and stare at the empty camps for a moment, then resume their patrol.

Shadowlands Event Server: Venthyr Covenant

Yesterday, I had the chance to play on an event server for the initial build of the upcoming Shadowlands beta, featuring The Maw and the venthyr covenant. I’ve decided to split up the many pictures I took into multiple articles based on theme. This time, we’ll look at the venthyr covenant.

Your journey begins with Prince Renathal, leader of the resistance against Sire Denathrius, welcoming in you to the covenant. There’s also a hint of intrigue and the suggestion that Renathal’s motives aren’t as pure as they seem.

Shadowlands Event Server: The Maw

Yesterday, I had the chance to play on an event server for the initial build of the upcoming Shadowlands beta, featuring The Maw and the venthyr covenant. I’ve decided to split up the many pictures I took into multiple articles based on theme. First up, let’s take a look at The Maw.

Unlike the other Shadowlands zones, players enter The Maw by jumping into the flow of souls at the center of Oribos. There are no flight paths or inns in The Maw, this is the only way to get in.

World of Warcraft: Shadowlands Developer Update (July 8) Transcript

The World of Warcraft: Shadowlands executive producer John Hight and game director Ion Hazzikostas discuss details of the expansion today July 8, 2020 at 11:45am (New York) / 8:45am (Los Angeles).

It might be a good opportunity to reveal plans for Closed Beta testing.

A transcript will be available tomorrow.

Sanguine Depths Dungeon | Shadowlands Alpha

The Sanguine Depths dungeon is located in Revendreth toward the north-center edge of the map.

This is where all the anima siphoned from all other zones of the Shadowlands is collected, then redirected toward The Maw to empower the Jailer.

Below you can read the transcript of all dialogue text broadcast during the dungeon.

Spires of Ascension Dungeon | Shadowlands Alpha

The Spires of Ascension dungeon is located near the Elysian Hold in Bastion.

The dialogue text transcribed here reveals details about Kyrestia the Firstborne, Devos the Paragon of Loyalty, The Arbiter, The Jailer, and even Uther.

Devos seeks to change the path of the Kyrian. The Kyrian path forces the denizens of Bastion to erase the memories of their past, their loved ones for the service of The Arbiter. The Kyrian are brainwashed.

Blizzplanet Review – World of Warcraft: Shadows Rising

Several weeks ago, I was given access to a copy of Overwatch: The Hero of Numbani (review here), and World of Warcraft: Shadows Rising — the Shadowlands prequel novel tie-in. Special thanks to Random House and Rogers & Cowan PMK who reached out.

I feel privileged to be able to read the novel after 87 days playing Shadowlands Alpha to understand the lore from both media.

Especially, after playing the Shadowlands Intro Questline where players participate in a ritual at The Frozen Throne to open a way into The Maw in the Shadowlands.

Reading the novel helped me fill up the gap of what led to the new expansion.

Throughout this review, I will offer minor spoilers without names in some instances, or without going into detail. So keep this in mind beyond the break below. If you want to skip the soft spoilers, but want to check out the Table of Content with chapters listed, skip to the image.

Shadowlands Alpha build 34972

The Shadowlands Alpha build 34972 was over 8GB in size. You can visit MMO-Champion or WoWHead for all the datamined stuff. I will share with you what’s discovered in-game.

COVENANT MISSIONS (GARRISON)

The Covenant Missions Table is not operational yet, and assets are work in progress, but for the first time the UI became accessible at Elysian Hold in Bastion.
