When we last saw Azshara back in patch 8.3, we had freed her from Dark Inquisitor Xanesh and in payment she gave us Xal'atath as means of defeating N'Zoth.
It's not every day you see Warcraft show up on Humble Bundle, the pay-what-you-want-for-books-and-or-games site that lets you choose how to distribute your payment, with part of the proceeds benefitting a wide variety of charities.
I've been thinking a lot about what N'Zoth fate in patch 8.3 means for World of Warcraft going forward.
With the Eternal Palace open, the Queen Azshara fight and new cinematic gives us a glimpse of our future
If you need a spoiler warning, consider this entire post to be nothing but spoilers.
Polygon has posted this interview with Ely Cannon, art director and senior level designer on World of Warcraft, discussing the design of Nazjatar and the Eternal Palace raid going live today.
Tomorrow, the big raid of patch 8.2 officially opens, allowing World of Warcraft players to take on Azshara in her own domain.
Once again the folks at Wowhead have provided us with the cinematic to the latest patch, this time the first cinematic when you go to Nazjatar in patch 8.2, Rise of Azshara, which is live right now.
Update: Patch 8.2 now has an official release date!
Seasons in World of Warcraft work differently than their counterparts in Diablo 3.
Even if you're avoiding spoilers, you still probably know the basic outlines of what's coming in patch 8.2 -- Queen Azshara's Naga are attacking the world and we're going to Nazjatar, there's a new kingdom of steampunk Gnomes called Mechagon and we're going there too, and, oh yeah, all that stuff that happened in 8.1.5 has repercussions in the War Campaign.
