7.2 has arrived on the PTR, just days after Nighthold's opening and we already have the patch notes for this first build. Demon Assaults aka Broken Isles invasions, Pet battle dungeons, transmog sets, tab targeting improvements, 860 ilevel WQs, Arcway, CoS, Upper and Lower Karazhan added to Dungeon Finder, archaeology elite digsites and AP gains and more.
You can also check out our early preview of the build, with the invasions, Tomb dungeon journal, Cathedral of Night dungeon, and more.
Patch 7.2 is now available for testing on the Public Test Realms (PTR). Participating on the Public Test Realms allows you to test a patch before it is released on live realms. Once you've had a chance to try things out, visit our PTR Discussion 7.2 forum to discuss the patch. To report issues or errors, use the in-game Submit Bug feature (found under Game Menu -> Help -> Submit Bug) or by visiting the PTR Bug Report 7.2 forum.
More features are coming! New information for 7.2 features that are still in-development will be added soon. Please keep in mind that the notes below are not final, and details may be subject to change before the release of Patch 7.2. Not all content listed in the PTR Patch Notes may be available for testing. Content may have a limited test window.
The Burning Legion is assaulting Azeroth with renewed determination. Look for Broken Isles zones to come under attack, fight to drive the Legion back, and defend the lands of your new allies.
Pet Battle Dungeon
Something nefarious is going on in the world of pet battles, and it’s up to you to look into it. If you have at least one level 25 battle pet, speak to Breanni in Dalaran to get directions to this new scenario.
A new ‘Sets’ tab in the Appearances UI is where you’ll find this new way of tracking item sets from previous Raids, PvP Seasons, and more.
Class Combat Updates
The launch of Legion included many updates to class animations, sounds, and spell effects. These will continue in Patch 7.2 with updates to Hunters, Death Knights, and Balance Druids. More are on the way!
Legion Reputation Updates
Reputation earned beyond Exalted will now contribute towards earning additional rewards from Broken Isles faction emissaries.
In Patch 7.2, tab targeting should feel more natural. While in combat, you will no longer be able to accidentally tab to a target that is out of combat with you. Furthermore, you’re no longer able to tab to a target that neither your character nor your camera can see. This is very much a work-in-progress, and your feedback is greatly appreciated.
Professions The Obliterum Forge should now always be available to players, and requires no questline. All item level 815 crafted end-game gear will now be crafted at item level 835. All existing items between item levels 815-830 will retain their existing item level. The first application of Obliterum will bring them up to 840, and the Obliterum cap has been increased to iLvl 875. Some World Quests that are related to Professions now reward 1 skill point in their associated Profession. Archaeology You can now get Artifact Power from Archaeology. New Elite digsites have been discovered in the Broken Isles. All enemies summoned by Archaeology can now be killed by multiple nearby players. Cooking Nomi now provides Prepared Ingredients as part of his work orders, which can be combined to create up to 10 servings of a random recipe known by the player.
User Interface You can now assign a specialization to an equipment set in the Equipment Manager. An “Open All” button has been added to the mailbox. You can now preview an ensemble set by CTRL-clicking it. Spellbook Spells that haven’t been moved to an action bar are highlighted in the spellbook. Mousing over a spell highlights it on your action bar, making it easier to locate. Pet spells can now be dragged onto the player action bar. Quick Join Auto Accept: A setting has been added to allow friends and guild members to instantly join your queues without a confirmation. This setting is located in Interface Options -> Social. Group tooltips now show the available roles and if auto accept is enabled. Right click a Quick Join group to whisper a member of that group.
Dungeons and Raids Enemies’ damage and health have been increased for all Heroic and Mythic dungeons, and the item levels of gear found in Legion Dungeons has been increased. All Random Heroic dungeons now requires 825 item level to queue. Lower Karazhan and Upper Karazhan have been added to the Random Legion Heroic list in Dungeon Finder. The Arcway and Court of Stars have been added to the Random Legion Heroic list in Dungeon Finder.
Items Set tokens for all raids from Serpentshrine to Siege of Orgrimmar have been updated to provide loot for your spec on right-click, in the same manner as newer raid set tokens. The vendor functionality of these items has not been changed.
Classes Warrior Charge (and Intercept) now deals damage on arrival, and its snare begins after you hit your target.
World Quests Broken Isles World Quest rewards now scale to item level 860 (was item level 845).
We’ll outline many more changes and additions to the World of Warcraft Patch 7.2 PTR in the coming weeks.
Welcome to the Patch 7.2 PTR! As we’re just getting our 7.2 public test phase underway, we’d like to give you some context into what you’ll see (and won’t see) in this first build.
Most of Patch 7.2’s major content isn’t enabled in this build – that’ll be coming in a few weeks. Our primary testing focus for this build will be Demon Assaults, as well as general game stability (e.g. crashes). 7.2’s Pet Battle Dungeon should also be available for testing.
There’s a few other things of note that are enabled for initial testing in this build, but be aware that many of them are still heavily under development:
Transmog Item Sets: This is an update to the Transmogrification System that tracks the progress and collections of Raid and PVP item sets, and we’d love your feedback on it. Tab targeting improvements: We’re hard at work making some improvements to this feature, and have a few updates in this build that should make tab targeting feel more natural. Please let us know what you think! Some updated visual effects for Hunters, Death Knights, and Balance Druids: This is still very much in a work-in-progress state, but we’re making a few improvements to the look and feel of these classes, and want to hear your feedback.
You may also start to see some bits and pieces of an improvement we’re making to PvP gearing in 7.2 through the Obliterum Forge (which will no longer require completing a quest chain to unlock). The intent of this system is to allow players who have received multiple pieces of unwanted gear to exchange them for a piece of their choosing. It’s not yet ready for testing, but it’s on the way.
The initial build of Patch 7.2 has been deployed to test realms. Here's a first overview.
@Starym's post contains the early Patch Notes and you can read them here. New Spell Animations
Death Knights, Balance Druids and Hunters have received spell updates. New Affixes
A new affix called Bursting was added. When slain, non-boss enemies explode, causing all players to suffer 20% of their max health in damage over 4 sec. This effect stacks. Crafted Gear
Obliterum item level cap was raised to 875 and all crafted items have had their item level increased to 835. Legon Invasions
During invasions, world quests are replaced by invasion quests. The entire zone will be under attack. Quests completed beyond Exalted yield additional emissary rewards (via Paragon).
There are multiple invasion quests available per invasion zone.
Tomb of Sargeras Raid
Nine bosses are at the moment present in the journal. There is no loot information available right now.
Kil'jaeden's Model is currently not available, but we were able to see it during the BlizzCon slideshow.
Cathedral of Eternal Night Dungeon
Is a four-boss dungeon that requires attunement, currently available on Heroic / Mythic difficulty.
Has been split into two, lower / upper Karazhan and can be now accessed via Dungeon Finder.
Dungeon Item Level Update
The item level of normal dungeons has been increased to 825+. The item level of heroic dungeons has been increased to 845+ The item level of Mythic dungeons has been increased to 865+. New Mounts
The initial build also contains some of the new class mounts and they seem to have different color variations based on spec. New PvP mounts were added as well.
The worm will drop in the Tomb of Sargeras.
Patch 7.2 is underway, hitting test servers today. The patch was previewed in more detail at BlizzCon 2016. It contains flying, the Tomb of Sargeras, custom flying mounts for every class, the Armies of Legionfall faction, Artifact updates and more!
We don't expect all the content to be available immediately at PTR launch.

The Tomb of Sargeras The Eye of Aman'thul is the fifth pillar of creation that awaits us in the Nighthold and we'll put them to use. We'll fight the Avatar of Sargeras and Kil'jaeden.

To put an end to the Legion once and for all, we'll have to venture to Argus. More details will be announced soon™.
With Patch 7.1.5 live, you may have noticed an increased drop-rate of Curious Coins. Aerythlea confirmed that in a blue post.
I'll pull this one out of stealth, the drop-rate of Curious Coins was indeed increased with 7.1.5.
What Items Can You Get?
Xur'ios in Dalaran offers different items every day. If you want a specific item, you need to regularly pay him a visit. The items he sells are
Arcadian War Turtle Boon of the Nether Formula: Soul Fibril Gjallar's "Horn" Ingram's Puzzle Krota's Shield Mote of Light Recipe: Flamespike Recipe: Leather Love Seat Schematic: Mecha-Bond Imprint Matrix Technique: Straszan Mark Arcadian War Turtle
Costs 150 Curious Coins.
Gul'dan also drops vanity items that aren't visible under the Nighthold loot tables in the journal. Players on reddit have been reporting two toy drops off Gul'dan. Both were obtained on Normal or higher difficulty, so it's safe to assume that they won't drop in LFR.
Skull of Corruption Is only lootable by Demon Hunters, but it can be traded to anyone else after, even sold in the Auction House. It makes your character kneel with a skull in his/her hand. Memory Cube is rewarded upon completing a quest line which starts by killing Chronomatic Anomaly that drops Mysterious Cube. When interacted with, players will "relive" various Legion cinematics. Golden Hearthstone Card: Lord Jaraxxus Turns the player into Lord Jaraxxus for one minute and replaces actionbars with emotes he does during the encounter.

There's one more toy unique to Demon Hunters - Fel Focusing Crystal. It hasn't dropped yet. It's also BoE.
