The 7.1 PTR yields a lot of new info, including mounts, world quests and prestige imporvements!


As the datamining rages since the PTR just went live very recently, MMO Champion and Wowhead are putting stuff up as fast as possible. Here are some of the basics that they've dug up:

New mounts, Karazhan themed and otherwise, courtesy of WoWhead:

And MMOChas put together some patch notes covering the major additions to the game in 7.1

Some highlights:
New world event area on Alcaz isle, class changes and tweaks, new world quests, the Suramar 9 week campaign previously mentioned will lead up to the opening of the Nighthold raid, you won't be losing your honor talents when you prestige anymore and higher prestige levels will award gold and artifact power instead of honor talents. Blizzard has also stated that any datamined changes at the moment are only tooltip changes, as they haven't really started tuning classes yet.

Yeah, for sure. Elvine was already tweeting about the impact it could have on the markets as soon as the trader info went up. I'm sure it will destroy prices just as much as the Garrison trader did. I'm already sitting on hundreds of Bloods with little to do with them.

I freely admit I was a little bit of a Kara Revamp naysayer but, I'm getting really excited for it. Just for mythics and prepping for mythic + i've gotten a small group together and the 5 man progression is honestly some of the most fun I've had in the game, far more than raid progression ever was for me. So, frankly, I'm getting super hyped about a 5 man raid and to progress through it with these fine people. Now, that they are adding super awesome mounts on top of it, I'm all but frothing at the mouth. This new (I'm saying destiny inspired) raid format is now quite the refreshing change.

I have to absolutely agree, the 5 man content and the way they're making progression out of it is among the best things in Legion, and that's saying a lot cos there are a LOT of "best things in Legion".

Blizz has done well this time, and it appears that for at least half a year if not more they are going to keep that momentum up. May end up where Wrath gets dethroned as most revered expac. I guess the meme was correct

I know there are a lot of people who are against revising Kara but for me I can't wait.  It is still one of my favorite raids and the chance to see it reimagined has got me excited.

There's always that danger of "IT WASNT AS GOOD AS IT WAS IN *insert expansion name here*" - so far, tbh, it looks fantastic and the fact that they have put a proper twist on it means those that love the old raid can love both, rather than comparing them.

      Patch 7.1.5 brings new Artifact Knowledge catch-up options for both mains and alts.
      We'll be able to catch up on Artifact Knowledge in Patch 7.1.5 using Order Resources.
      The main source of Order Resources is the Blood of Sargeras trader in Dalaran. You can buy Order Resources Cache that will give 200 Order Resources for one Blood of Sargeras. Bloods are farmed via World Quests and Heroic+ dungeons.
      Main Characters
      A new quest was added to your Class Hall called Knowledge is Power. You need to turn in 500 Order Resources to get Artifact Research Synopsis.  The quest is repeatable and can be completed until you reach Artifact Knowledge level 15. After that you will need to place work orders as usual. A total of 7,500 Order Resources is thus required to reach said AK level. That's 37.5 Bloods of Sargeras.

      Alts
      Depending on the Artifact Knowledge level of your main, you can purchase research compendiums and mail them to your alts. These items are bound to your Battle.net account.
      Artifact Research Compendium: Volume I Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I & II Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I-III Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I-IV As an example, if you have Artifact Knowledge Level 15, you can buy Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I & II for 1,000 Order Resources. I think every 5 levels of Artifact Knowledge will unlock a new compendium. If you use the item without any research documents, you instantly reach Artifact Knowledge level 10 (it's like that on PTR right now).
