World of Warcraft’s newly-launched Shadowlands expansion takes players to Bastion, a world populated by angels who fly majestically through the sky, gripping our faces tight.

Bastion, the first major questing area of the expansion, is basically where the white Magic: The Gathering cards live. It’s got rolling alabaster plains, gorgeous mythical creatures, and a race of massive blue-skinned avians called Kyrians. The Kyrians are pretty much a purity cult, but that’s not important. What is important is that from time to time a Kyrian will have to carry your World of Warcraft character through the clouds, and they do so by grabbing a fistful of your upper body.

A fistful of me.  (Screenshot: Blizzard / Kotaku) A fistful of me. (Screenshot: Blizzard / Kotaku)

There is nothing quite as glorious as the feeling of being held aloft by these heavenly beings. Feeling the wind whipping around your ankles, smelling their big blue palms against your face. I bet it’s so warm in there. Warm and safe, like half a womb.

Not the best angle, but the best angel.  (Screenshot: Blizzard / Kotaku) Not the best angle, but the best angel. (Screenshot: Blizzard / Kotaku)

In the arms of an angel, fly away from here.
