Vanion.eu noticed that the Scrapper was added to the crafting area in Zuldazar. Clicking on the Scrapper gives you the Scrapper Attunement buff - "Attuned to the scrapper, allowing you to scrap without confirmation. Moving too far away will cancel this effect." Using the scrapper turns an item to raw materials.

User Guide Spotlight: Faction Transmogs by Keldesh - Fri, 16 Mar 2018 23:08:15 -0500 Welcome to the first article in the guide feature series! You probably know by now about user-submitted guides on Wowhead, but did you know there's over 1500 guides published on the site right now? With so many to choose from, it can be hard to find a guide, even when searching through a specific category. Because of this, some guides slip through the cracks and aren't viewed by many users simply because you don't know about their existence!

The Mag'har Orc Allied Race is comprised of united tribes from Warlords of Draenor and includes skin tones representing each clan. Having alternate tints of the Heritage Armor, whether they're just worn by NPCs or actual player options, is a nice touch.
In Warlords of Draenor, we fought the Blackrock Clan and the Iron Horde in Blackrock Foundry.
Boralus Alliance Hub Updates and Jaina Quest for Build 26231 - Wed, 14 Mar 2018 22:30:46 -0500 The Alliance hub of Boralus in Tiragarde Sound has received another round of visual updates as well as a new quest with Jaina. More areas are populated with civilians, many of the untextured white boats have been replaced with real boats, and the compass decoration on the ground by Proudmoore Keep has more textures.

Battle for Azeroth Alpha Build 26231 Creature and Weapon Models - Wed, 14 Mar 2018 22:13:51 -0500 Battle for Azeroth Alpha Build 26231 is shaping up to be a big one for model updates. Kul Tiran Druid Bear Form was added as well as animations for Zandalari Feral Form. But that's not all--this build added several interesting dungeon and raid weapons, as well as a construct model.
The Alliance intro scenario is not yet complete, but we've gotten more descriptions of cinematics to fill in parts of the lore. The scenario ultimately ends with Jaina exiled and the player escaping from Ashvane's prison.
New Orcs default to the upright position and if your Orc is set to upright it will also show as upright on the Character Selection Page. However, for players that like the hunch, you can head to the Barber Shop (weird right?) to change your posture at any time.
Kul Tiran Druid Bear Form - Wed, 14 Mar 2018 17:52:10 -0500 Looks like Kul Tiran Humans are getting a special Druid Bear Form and therefore are likely an Allied Race! Last week we speculated on the possibility of Kul Tiran Druids.
This is the first Kul Tiran Druid form that we've seen. As a reminder, the Zandalari Troll Allied Race recently got pretty epic Dinosaur Druid Forms.
The World of Warcraft community accomplishes great things when they come together for a common cause. We’d like to take a moment to highlight and celebrate just some of those feats. Shadow the Fox Charity Pet and Plush The results are in!
