Know Your Lore: Death Knights, then and now Before the Frozen Throne crashed into Icecrown, before the lords of the Burning Legion first conceived of a weapon that would scour life from Azeroth, there was only means, motive and opportunity... and a self-serving power hungry Warlock grasping for a tool.



Patch 7.3 takes us to Mac’Aree Beware: there are spoilers in this post! Argus content is progressing on the PTR and in the latest patch 7.3 build we finally get to visit Mac’Aree.

BlizzCaps: Whee! “It’s time, once again, for Spectacular Death’s entreaty to Blizzard to make a flying mammoth,” writes submitter Gimmlette. “Seriously.

What other Timewalking raids do you want to see? The first Timewalking raid kicks in this week, letting players fall back in time to raid the hallowed halls of Black Temple as if we’d never left them.
