Hordes of undead have appeared in Azeroth, and that means it's time for the event announcing the Shadowlands expansion. Blizzard prepared a lot of interesting activities for the fans.
Death's Rising, the beginning event in the world of World of Warcraft, introduces a lot of novelties. Hordes of the undead have appeared in the cities, and for two weeks of the event's duration, unique quests will be made available, allowing for a smooth transition from Battle for Azeroth to Shadowlands. For their completion we will get access to daily missions in Icecrown, unlock the portal leading from Alliance and Horde capitals to Argent Tournament Grounds, and gain the achievement called Feat of Strength - Death Rising.
But this is not the end of it. What would an event dedicated to the undead be if we weren't offered a zombie companion? For special points awarded by the event we will be able to buy armor, an Anti-Doom Broom, and a Putrid Geist pet, which will support us in our adventures. How to get the aforementioned currency? There are several ways to do that. As reported by Wowhead, daily tasks provide 3 Argent Commendations each, and the main missions will give us a total of 18. Besides, it's worth killing undead opponents in Icecrown. Scourgestones that drop out of them, after being exchanged by a certain crusader, will serve us as an additional source of currency.
There is also a new boss in Eastern Plaguelands. Do you remember Nathanos? Every week you will have the opportunity to tell (and show) him what you think of him and Sylvanas. In return for killing the undead, we will receive an item on level 115. But not only Banshee Queen's servant will drop valuable objects. In Icecrown we will get, among other things, a bag containing 34 items, which will make it easier to start the adventure with the upcoming expansion.
Shadowlands will launch on November 24.
