Patch 7.1 Live This Week
Patch 7.1 goes live this week! It brings the Karazhan dungeon, Trial of Valor raid, a continuation of the Suramar story, new pets, mounts, achievements and much more! Keep in mind that Trial of Valor will not be open for another two weeks.



Karazhan - Mythic Dungeon
We will Return to Karazhan in Patch 7.1! An updated version of Karazhan with some new encounters has been added as a Mythic dungeon. Don't worry though, the old version of Karazhan is sticking around so you can keep trying for Fiery Warhorse's Reins.

  • Rated and Unrated Battleground wins will reward a piece of gear. Losses have a chance to reward gear based on the score.
  • Skirmish and Arena victories will have an increased chance to drop gear.
  • The item level of PvP gear now more closely mirrors the type of item level progression you see from World Quests
  • Each rated PvP bracket (2v2, 3v3, Rated Battlegrounds) has a weekly quest that rewards items based on your best rating from the previous week.
  • The quests for Arena brackets will require 10 wins, and the quests for the Rated Battleground bracket require three wins.
  • Below 2000, the quests reward Gladiator appearance gear and above 2000 they reward Elite appearance gear.

Reputation Improvements

Second, World Quests will no longer have the "friendly" reputation unlock requirement for secondary/alt characters. Once you hit 110 on an alt, you will immediately receive a quest to speak with Khadgar to receive your Flight Master's Whistle and unlock World Quests, as long as you've already unlocked World Quests on your main.

New Music
Patch 7.1 adds some new music, including music for Karazhan, Winter's Veil, and Diablo's Anniversary.



Action Camera
The Action Cam should be returning in Patch 7.1, meaning addons like dynamiccam might work once again.



New Icons
Lots of new icons were added in this patch!



New Strings
New strings in this patch include references to the system that allows you to join friends that are queuing for something.



WoWDB Addon Data Collection
The migration to the new Curse App continues with improved addon management support and guild servers.

Quickly populating the database with new additions is done with the help of many players. The more people that contribute data, the more accurate and quickly we can update the database.

To help out, just click here if you have Curse App already installed.

When you are playing the addon will gather data and save it. When you are done playing, Curse App will see the game close and upload the collected data from the addon.

    Thank god for the unlock world quest on alts, recently leveled a paladin had to go do about 2h+ just to unlock as i dinged before even starting the last zone.

    I really hope they up the legendary drop rate for those who have been unlucky so far and flip on the purported bad luck switch. Being able to go to 925 with them once Nighthold opens is going to make it much harder (although not impossible) to find groups for those with bad RNG who haven't got theirs yet, since so much of what people think of your skill is when getting applying for groups comes from ilvl.
  1. Mynarjr's Avatar
    Well the fact that they are putting an arrow on items with a "higher ilvl", is going to ruin how new people see gear. Just because it has a higher Ilvl does not mean it's always an upgrade based on the stats, proc rate, etc of each item. this is only going to increase the confusion of which gear is better for your character that blizzard was originally trying to stay away from.

    I can't fucking believe it, after all these blabbing about how they messed up with secondaries in legion, when you can easily have 880 ring/neck worse than a 835 one, they not only have a nerve to make an "upgrade" arrow which will mess with not so enlightened people, but also create only one fucking version of a karazan ring. I can't fucking believe it.

    I gaurentee that Nighthold will open before I have a legendary to upgrade.

    How awesome is that? Not only can I wear two legionaries that I don't have, I can also upgrade my non existent legionaries. With my RNG - I will never had a legendary - or to make it more insulting one of my farming alts will have one and my main will flounder around without one.

    It warms my heart to see I'm not the only one waiting for the magic moment for one to drop. I'm beginning to feel like a minority.

    How come u can keep some raids around while also making them into new dungeons, but u couldnt do that with all of them? Like why did ZA and ZG have to go in order to make them into dungeons, but kara stays?

    They probably added this so that people wouldn't have to go back to farm WoD materials.

    I am not sure you can even get the quest to upgrade a legendary unless you have a legendary already. That said, it would be nice if they raised the drop rate for those without any legendaries when this went into effect. Making those with bad RNG even further behind those with good RNG just is stupid. It is already bad when someone has their 2 best legendaries equipped at 895, but to then jump them 30 more ilvl? Ouch.

    To be fair, this isn't exactly the same situation as ZA/ZG. Those instances were turned into 5 mans that were basically identical to the raid, so having it as a raid and a dungeon would have been pointless. This Kara is only about half the same as the other Kara, while the other half is supposed to be new content entirely. It has a different entrance as well. The ZA/ZG dungeons used the same entrances as the raids, so it sort of made sense that they chose one rather than having both.
