    Patch 7.2.5 Live This Week

    Patch 7.2.5 Live This Week
    Patch 7.2.5 brings new legendary items, Mythic+ changes, Level 110 Heirlooms, Black Temple Timewalking, a Chromie scenario and more!



    Official Notes
    The official notes have been released and updated since we originally posted them.



    Calculators Updated
    All of the calculators have been updated to reflect changes coming in Patch 7.2.5.




    New Loading Screen



    New Maps



    Legendary Item Upgrades
    Patch 7.2.5 allows players to upgrade their legendary items to item level 970 by completing another collection quest.



    New Legendary Items
    New legendary items have been added to the existing legendary item drop system, as well as legendary rings that grant a talent.



    Mythic+ Changes
    Mythic+ dungeons are getting some changes in Patch 7.2.5. You can read more about the reasons for these changes here.
    Originally Posted by Blizzard Entertainment
    • Mythic Keystone enemy health and damage now increase by 10% per level (was 8% per level).
    • Mythic Keystones no longer deplete when used. They now downgrade by 1 level if a dungeon is not completed within the time limit.
    • The Mythic Keystone end-of-dungeon reward chest now contains a third item for the group when the dungeon is completed within the time limit.
    • In Mythic Keystone dungeons, beating the timer by a very large margin upgrades the Keystone by 2 or 3 levels instead of just 1, but no longer awards additional loot chests.
    • Clearing Mythic Keystone levels above 15 will have a chance of dropping additional items (roughly one extra item awarded per 3 difficulty levels beyond 15).

    The Deaths of Chromie Scenario
    Chromie needs your help to stop her death! In this solo scenario, you will defeat eight different attacks on Chromie throughout time before it is too late. Rewards include Timewarped Badges, the Timelord title, and transmog gear.



    Black Temple Timewalking
    During the Burning Crusade Timewalking week, you can head to Black Temple with a 10-30 player group to take on the bosses that drop item level 900 loot. The difficulty has been set a little bit below Normal difficulty and the raid will require a premade group.



    Trial of Style
    Trial of Style is a six player scenario that allows everyone to change their appearance and vote on the best appearances, rewarding the winners with Trial of Style Token that can be exchanged for transmog gear.



    Heirloom Item Upgrades
    You can purchase Level 110 Heirloom upgrades from the regular Heirloom vendors for 5000 gold (armor) and 7500 gold (weapons) each.

    Level Type Name
    110Other Weathered Heirloom Armor Casing

    Auction House Dance Party
    The Auction House Dance Party is a new micro-holiday! You can stand on the dance floor and dance, get teleported up to the stage, and grab the Happy Feet buff.

    The Orgrimmar and Stormwind auction houses also had slight decoration tweaks







    Darkmoon Faire - Blight Boar Band

    New 7.2.5 legendary items can drop immediately with the patch release.

    All legendaries will drop at ilvl 940 until Tomb of Sargeras opens.

    No upgrading until the 20th

    I mean I know it's just rehashed old content, but TW BT raid is probably my favorite addition to the game in a long, long time. So stoked.

    I'm curious as to why almost all of the new legendaries can proc things like Wings, incarnation, power infusion, chaos blades etc, but Mages don't get IV/Combust/AP? No idea how useful these legendaries will be, but some seem rather OP

    Heirlooms to 110 is great. But, why would anyone bother upgrading the weapons? I'll probably just upgrade all the cloth ones so all my alts can use them, such a gold sink x_x

    I'd expect those weapons and shields/off hands are included so they don't have to add them in the next expansion when we (hopefully) don't have artefact weapons anymore.
