Shadowlands: The Shattered Sky of Icecrown (Torghast)

In the Shadowlands Alpha it is quite difficult to get to Icecrown as any new level 50 characters spawn in at the Vestibule of Eternity in Bastion with no way to leave Shadowlands (at least for now).

There is no character copy either. So the only way to get to Icecrown is by leveling up a new character in the new Exile’s Reach Isle level 1-10 experience, then reaching Stormwind to take the boat to Borean Tundra.

Luckily, level 10 players have the Dalaran flightpath enabled — there are two flight points enabled in Northrend from Borean Tundra (if you are Alliance): Dalaran and Valgarde Port (Howling Fjord).

Sadly, umm… the Violet Stand Crystal at The Violet Gate requires level 25 to teleport down to Crystalsong Forest… so… the only way down at level 10+ is climbing to the wall at this location in Krasus’ Landing and skydiving — if you get my drift.

Exile’s Reach – New Shadowlands Level 1-10 Experience

Blizzard Entertainment is revamping the level 1-10 gameplay experience by unifying most races and classes into completing a series of quests in the Exile’s Reach Isle. The Death Knight and Demon Hunter classes; the Allied Races; and the Pandaren Monk are the exception.

World of Warcraft: Shadowlands Alpha Begins this Week

Game director Ion Hazzikostas announced the World of Warcraft: Shadowlands Alpha will begin this week. He did not provide a specific date, but this could easily be guess-timated between the March 7-10 range.

Please, follow @blizzplanetcom for a multitude of updates: such as gameplay videos and screenshots.

Take in mind that Alpha is by no means what you will experience in the shipped product.

Theorycraft: The Maw Jailer and the Fallen Titan

Many years ago, when the Patch 1.9 event that led to the Opening of The Gates of Ahn’Qiraj became available, a legend about a Fallen Titan in Silithus showed up briefly by Geologist Larksbane: “In the time before time, when the world was still in its infancy, a battle between a Titan and a being of unimaginable evil and power raged on this very soil. The prophecy is unclear about whether or not the Titan was vanquished in this battle but it illustrates that a Titan fell. An Old God had also fallen – or so it was thought.”

BlizzCon 2019 World of Warcraft: Shadowlands Deep Dive Panel Transcript

Paul: Hello, BlizzCon. Thank you for coming to the WoW Deep Dive panel. My name is Paul Kubit. Today we are going to dig a little bit deeper into some of the systems that define what goes into World of Warcraft: Shadowlands. A quick outline of what we are going to talk about. First, I am going to talk about Covenants: what they are, what they do; next I am going to talk about some of the changes that are coming to Leveling; next after that, Classes and the changes to your classes and the philosophies about what we are thinking about, and making those changes; and lastly, I am going to talk about Torghast and the Maw that surrounds it.

So without further ado, Covenants.

Narrator: Welcome to the World of Warcraft: What’s Next.

Hazzikostas: BlizzCon! Hello, once again. It has been so long. I love you all, too. This is the best. Shadowlands. Like Diablo IV, we can finally say it outloud; and this is the time to tell you a bit more about where we are going, and what is next in World of Warcraft.

So, last time in World of Warcraft, this happened. The sky shattered, and we are left staring across the veil between life and death, into a small piece of the Shadowlands; but what does that mean for us exactly?

BlizzCon 2019: World of Warcraft: Shadowlands Announced
