In WoW Shadowlands we explore the shadow lands, which basically unite hell, hereafter, paradise & co. But of course we will still fall in battle there – what does death look like in the realm of the dead? Our pictures from the alpha server clarify.
Even excellent WoW players underestimate a fight or don't pull the goblin glider fast enough when falling – nothing will change in WoW Shadowlands. This naturally raises an interesting question: How does the expansion that sends us beyond WoW deal with the death of our heroes? Our insights from the Alpha server reveal that the developers have visually adapted the experience.

Everyone becomes a ghost in WoW Shadowlands after death – including night elves
Instead of a ghost form of our hero, we are transformed into a ghost, even night elves, who usually become a wisp. When we die, we are greeted not by the classic spirit healer, but by a Kyrian Vesiphone, paragon of purity. The angelic figure gives you a few encouraging words on the way as you return to your body. So far, only Bastion is available as a region on the Alpha server, but we can assume that depending on the area, another being will greet us when we die. We also don't have a body in Shadowlands: instead, a ghost version of our hero is kneeling and waiting patiently for our return.

Visually, the whole thing is also a noticeable difference, because a wavering fog lies over the edge of your field of vision while you are on the move as a ghost. As soon as the Alpha is expanded to include additional areas outside of the heavenly bastion, it will probably also become clear whether this effect also depends on the zone.
