Legion PvP Season 1 Rewards
Some players did not receive their titles as expected - we are aware of this. We have a fix that will be deployed during realm restarts which should be happening within the next 24 hours. We’ve made sure that all eligible players are flagged correctly, and we expect this distribution to go smoothly.

We appreciate your patience with this, and thank you for your understanding. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

what's your top BM Hunters In PvP complaint? (Muffinus)

Thanks for being the BM Hunter hero we needed with regards to the tier set and Hati. If I could give you a bonus I would.
Can't take credit, all of these things were done by the class team before I said anything, they are pretty on top of stuff (Muffinus)

i thought lfg for Karazhan was coming in 7.1.5? or is that later?

Legendary Item Upgrades
With the Nighthold release, you can now pick up the Touch of a Titan quest in Dalaran to start on the path to upgrading existing legendary items. New items will have a higher item level when they drop.

When the Nighthold opens next week, players who have acquired at least one Legion Legendary item will find a quest in Dalaran to upgrade a Legendary from item level 910 to 940. This quest involves collecting a number of Essences of Aman’thul, which can be found in the following locations:

  • Nighthold Raid Bosses
  • Weekly Mythic Keystone Cache
  • Emissary Bags
  • PvP Weekly Quests

Once you have completed the quest, you'll be given a Distilled Titan Essence, which can be consumed to upgrade a Legion Legendary item to level 940. The quest is repeatable, so you'll be able to earn as many Distilled Titan Essences as you need to upgrade any Legendaries you have.

Additionally, once the Nighthold is open, any new Legendaries you discover will already be item level 940. Note that this does not apply retroactively to Emissary Bags that you may already have in your inventory when the time comes. Only new bags earned after the Nighthold is open have the chance to reward an item level 940 Legendary.

Will it be available on all levels of NH?
These will drop in all difficulties of the Nighthold, LFR included.

WoWDB Addon Data Collection
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. You can confirm this worked by clicking the gear icon, going to the Addon options, and scrolling down to the bottom to see "Enable WoWDB Profiler".

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.
