It looks like there are still hidden things in Patch 7.0 other than Artifact Appearances!

When they still havent found the 7.0 secrets and 7.1 is almost out... *sighs @ the ocean* (Muffinus)
Does whatever is still hidden have a notice at all? So we know if things are found or not?
Not to spoil anything but yes just about everything about it has been datamined (Muffinus)

Its not in the ocean, the ocean is just a good thing to sigh wistfully at, you can stop looking in the ocean. (Muffinus)

Outside of skins, ARE there some hidden things that players should be looking for?
in 7.0? Actuallly... yes. (Muffinus)

This is false, and based on misinterpreted datamining. The ilvl 850 follower mission associated with Karazhan is an "Investigate" mission, which gives you a quest for some bonus loot, exactly like the existing missions that send you into dungeons or into Emerald Nightmare.

The attunement questline for Karazhan primarily involves Mythic dungeon content. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

Patch 7.1 Arrives on October 25!
Is Nighthold coming out in 7.1?
7.1 contains mainly the Return to Karazhan Mythic Dungeon and the Trial of Valor raid. Nighthold is not part of this patch.

Too soon, You have given us content too soon Executusornyx.
I think you will find yourself pleasantly surprised by the span of content throughout Legion. We've already noted that Nighthold is slated for early 2017. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

PvP
New PvP leaderboards have launched! https://t.co/NICkcw3J8X (holinka)

Will the Free For All, More For Me achievement be retroactive, or will we need to complete the world quests in 7.1?
They will need to be completed in 7.1. (WarcraftDevs)

Pet Battles
Now that that is over, what would it take you, random person, to get into pet battling? I'm talking sweet rewards here. AP? A new dog pet? (Muffinus)
Something cool, like a storyline or something more of an upfront progression. Currently it seems like an afterthought system?
completely agree that an overarching quest/storyline could be a lot of fun! (Muffinus)

Blizzard Entertainment’s university relations and World of Warcraft development teams are proud to present the sixth annual Blizzard Student Art Contest! We’re calling on college and university students to submit original artwork or animations that would be a great fit for World of Warcraft.

Show us something we’ve never seen before but that still fits within World of Warcraft. You can see previous winning submissions here and here.


Online submission forms are available on our University Relations website as of October 15th.

Prizes
Grand prize winners will be chosen by the World of Warcraft art team, and will receive the following epic prizes*:

  • A tour of Blizzard Entertainment’s headquarters in Irvine, CA with 2 hours’ mentorship with a senior artist
  • 2-hour face to face mentorship session with a Senior Blizzard Artist
  • A one-year subscription to World of Warcraft
  • A Blizzard Entertainment notebook (featuring an original sketch by a Blizzard artist)
  • A Blizzard T-shirt

*Blizzard reserves the right to substitute a prize of equal or greater value for any prize

Please note that only current US and Canadian college and university students are eligible to win. Residents of North Dakota, Vermont, Connecticut, Maryland, and Quebec are not eligible to participate.

For more information about the contest as it becomes available, please join our Blizzard Careers group on LinkedIn (LinkedIn account required).

Good luck to all!

Environment
Using your creativity and ability to work within the World of Warcraft art style, create a small environment diorama that would fit well in the game world. Your quest: Concept, model, and texture an environment piece that you could imagine stumbling upon during your travels across Kalimdor, the Eastern Kingdoms, Outland, Northrend, Pandaria or the Broken Isles.

Required elements are trees, rocks, grass, and props, plus a small structure (such as a shrine).

Your final piece should have a structure similar to the example provided below. We're looking for lower poly-count models (e.g.: around 1,500 polys for a mature sized tree), so keep that in mind when creating your environment.

The final submission should be a high resolution JPEG file no larger than 5MB.


Character Art
Using your creativity and ability to work within the World of Warcraft art style, concept, model, and texture a non-player character (NPC) or creature that you could imagine roaming the plains of Durotar, exploring the depths of Deepholm, or just sitting in the Pig and Whistle Tavern knocking back a mug o’ Thistle Tea.

Required elements are the character or creature, along with some sort of clothing or armor. Feel free to go further by adding weapons or other accessories.

The final piece should have a structure similar to the example provided below. Stay within a budget of 6,000 polys with one 1024x1024 texture for the finished character.

The final submission should be a high resolution JPEG file no larger than 5MB.

    I have explored some of the oceans....out at high mountain. There are some interesting things I've noticed in the water heading towards Stormheim.

    Leaving the coast from High Mountain over by the friend murlocs. If you go out father than the kirin tor world quest, you'll notice there are a bunch of sunken ships with a long trench. The ships look to be viking style. They hint at a huge battle that was fought... and lost. Keep moving further away (from where they are facing), you'll come upon a sunken horde ship. The curious thing about this ship is, if you look around on the ground, there seems to be a line of starfish that head out.

    I moused over a lot of the area and found nothing clickable, but I have a feeling it all relates to something. Especially the sunken viking ships. I'll have to go back out and explore that area again today.

    Well I'm still looking for the Mask of Artful Dodging for rogues. The entire community is clueless.

    Sorry to be the downer here, but half the "treasure hunts" were just hidden behind AK5/6 (and then a massive grind for Thunderfury). Considering people spent so much time looking and coming up with different ideas, that kinda killed off half my interest in these searches. IF we don't even have any clues it's more of a "It could be literally anywhere, at any time, or any combination of things, or any achievement, or ALL acehivements, HAVE FUN TRYING EVERY COMBINATION OF EVERYTHING IN GAME", which to me is more depressing than it is fun.

    I swear I've seen this dumb purple mount shilled 5 times on the front page so far. It's like there's nothing else to report on.

    It's still relevant to know, it's nice reminder.

    Also there's quite a bit more to the post than just the mount.

    Almost everything is just behind an AK or just a drop.

    Plenty of world bosses yet to show up, Nighthold Raid... no surprise if these "hidden" secrets are still hidden just because of that.

    Been exalted for a couple weeks now. It's not that hard to get if you just keep up on Suramar emmisarries, do a few wqs, do all the questlines, and do the withered training when it pops up. The mounts going to look pretty funky for non-NE/BE's, but still kind of cool. More curious what the undiscovered secret is.
