WoW Shadowlands: Alpha Build 33978 datamined

The first public build of the Alpha of World of Warcraft: Shadowlands is finally online! This is Build 33978 and its content is dataminable. This article brings together all the content discovered so far.

Among the new features, there is a very interesting new achievement:

  • WoW's 16th Anniversary - Logged in during WoW's 16th Anniversary.

This is the achievement obtained during the 16th anniversary of WoW which will take place in mid-November 2020. Blizzard would plan a deployment of Shadowlands before this date?

This remains an assumption, do not take this "information" for granted, nothing is official (apart from the achievement)!

Major information

Here is a selection of the most interesting and important information discovered in this build.


  • It seems that we find Baroness Vashj and Alexandros Mograine at Maldraxxus and that we deliver them during a scenario entitled "The Blade of the Primus"
World of Warcraft
  • During the scenario "The Path of Totality", we relive the memories of the Night Warrior, her last moments. As a reminder, it might be Tyrande since she engaged in a dark ritual. However, it would seem that she did not die, since we would find her in Tourment.

  • It seems that Kel'thuzad has returned to Maldraxxus and is behind dark machinations. Presumably, we stop it and sign a peace treaty: the First Maldraxxian Armistice!

PvP Vendors and Conquest Points as Currency return with Shadowlands

Blizzard recently announced the grand return of Conquest Points and PvP Sellers in World of Warcraft: Shadowlands. What did the old system look like? What is the point of his reinstatement? Focus on the system that kept WoW PvP alive until it was removed.
