Artcraft -- Huntress of Teldrassil


Blizzard has published another piece in their Artcraft series, which previously spotlighted X and Y. This new blog details the upcoming changes to the female night elf model, which in addition to its drastically increased polycount now featuers more accurate ears (troll-like!) and even fangs! The Artcraft samples in this article were made before the addition of the "canine teeth," but Senior Art Director Chris G. Robinson has confirmed on Twitter that night elves will definitely now have fangs! Chomp! Check out the latest changes to one of Warcraft's most iconic races on the official World of Warcraft blog!

New Grinning Reaver and Warforged Nightmare Mounts Detailed


After Blizzard teased us all earlier this week in this post on Twitter, showing off what appears to be a Silithid mount. Our friends over at MMO-Champion have done even better, and have made a video showing off this amazing mount, the ability_mount_ravager2mount.jpgGrinning Reaver which serves as both a ground and flying mount! There's no word yet on where this mount will be available, but speculation is on it being added as a new store mount. They've also got a video showing off another amazing mount, from the Coming Soon™ department, the ability_mount_clockworkhorse.jpgWarforged Nightmare! Check out the videos below!

      Several UI improvements are coming in 7.2. The "Appearances" tab got a new tab called "Sets". There you can see all items of a set you've collected / haven't collected yet that create a set. It's not only about Tier sets, because sets contain matching non-set pieces.

      It also contains information about item source (which boss drops an item or if a vendor sells it etc).



      The same UI has been added to transmogrifiers, but it's currently not working.

      An issue is currently plaguing the Touch of a Titan quest. If you're working to upgrade your Legendary items, it's super important to turn Essences of Aman'Thul in once you're at 50/50. Any exceeding essences you have above 50 will be consumed upon quest completion. The bug should be fixed in near future.
      Ornyx
      I turned in my Touch of a Titan quest today, having looted the last 2 Essences I needed from my daily box, bringing me to a grand total of 52/50 Essences. Upon completion and picking up the quest again to start working on my Sephuz's, I noticed I had 0/50 left.

      Be careful when turning in the quest. If you are really close to having the required essences next Tuesday, don't use your Weekly M+ Cache to complete it. Save that for when you pick up the next round and get it from a daily box instead.
      I can see this being an issue in a few situations, specifically around Nighthold progression and going over the 50 "cap" by a moderate amount during your normal raid time.

      We will send this feedback over to the developers and see what's going on.
      Whoa! Wasn't expecting that. Thanks for the heads up Ornyx! Wasn't sure if it was intentional or not so I didn't want to say anything other than the warning.
      I think it's typical for quests like this to work in this way, but in this case, when looking at how raids progress and LFR tiers and such, it seems people could end up saving 70-80 at a time without realizing it which could be devastating.
