Upcoming Artifact Knowledge Research Hotfix
Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
We’re currently working on a hotfix intended to significantly reduce the amount of time it takes to reach the Artifact Knowledge cap of 40, in order to allow returning players to catch up more quickly.

Specifically, this hotfix will reduce the time it takes to research ranks of Artifact Knowledge between 26 and 40 to approximately 4 hours each. We hope to make this retroactive to any work orders already in progress when the hotfix is applied. Once these changes are live, a returning player should be able to reach the maximum level of Artifact Knowledge in only a few days.

This hotfix will require extensive testing, but our goal is to apply it within the next day or so.

World Boss - Ana-Mouz
Be sure to kill Ana-Mouz in Suramar for chance at item level 860 items and a Fel Relic.



Legendary Upgrade - Stabilized Titan Essence Consumed on Use
Stabilized Titan Essence will be consumed on use, just as the previous version was. Keep in mind that you can't start on upgrades until next week.

Mists of Pandaria Timewalking
Mists of Pandaria timewalking is back! It offers rewards such as Yu'lei, Daughter of Jade





Brawl - Packed House
The Packed House brawl is now available!

Correct. We'll have a complete hotfixes update later today with new hotfixes such as this one.

Season 3 Rewards Reminder
If you participated in Season 3, please keep the following in mind to ensure you receive the rewards that you’re due:

  • Refrain from transferring your character(s) to another realm or faction until after Legion Season 3 rewards have been distributed.
  • Legion Season 3 titles and mounts will be awarded approximately two weeks after the season ends.

Faction-Based Rewards
Don’t forget—end-of-season rewards are based on your faction. If you transfer your character to the other faction, you must have 50 wins after your transfer to receive the reward. Please note that you must have 150 wins for Gladiator and Cruel Gladiator.

The Arenas and Battlegrounds await!

Scuuuu on Reddit noticed that missions now reward Greater tokens, such as Greater Tribute of the Broken Isles, that award 1500 reputation. Nightfallen and Legionfall award 750.

    These changes are a direct result of the druid nerfs, removing mark of ursol. Since most guilds are rocking a druid soaking strategy they want you to be able to clear it the last week before tomb without having to change your entire strategy.

    You must be new around here, they always nerf content after a while - either through gear upgrades or adjusting health pools. No one should be surprised about this.

    What about the above needs to be tested?
    If 4 hours really take 4 hours?
    If the older bosses nobody does on PTR drop AP items?
    If items that are crafted really are ilvl900?

    Sometimes testing doesn't make sense; especially when you can be sure the sample won't be big enough.

    Blizzard has not announced sub numbers for few years already, the only thing we know at the end of WoD it had as low as 3 mil subs.

    You just contradicted yourself in your own statement.

    Why do they manage to make these statement so ambiguous every time...

    Does that now mean that every boss drops 100% a token in each difficulty or just once independent of difficulty. And if just once independent, are they the same amount? E.g., does Nythendra drop 900 base AP in Normal OR Hero OR Mythic? or still 500 base in normal 700 base in hero and 900 base in mythic?

    SO no more AP in LFR=no reasons to run LFR... Always out to screw people over Blizz, great job.

    Be sure to kill Ana-Mouz in Suramar for chance at item level 860 items and a Fel Relic.

    Oh and of course we will ALL rush out to get that shitty 860 gear when you can get 880 from shards...
