The Highland Drake Dragonriding mount received a new Elementium transformation in the latest Patch 10.1 build on the PTR that drops in Aberrus.
We assume Highland Drake: Embodiment of the Elementium Drake will be a drop from the final boss of the 10.1 raid, similar to how Renewed Proto-Drake: Embodiment of the Storm-Eater drops from Raszageth.
The good news is the item should be available even on Raid Finder difficulty.
Here is the Demon Hunter Patch 10.1 Tier Set along with a preview of the set bonuses.
Tier Set Bonuses
The set is comprised of 5 pieces of loot and provides you with bonuses when equipping 2 and 4 pieces of the set.
Demon Hunter Havoc 10.1 Class Set 2pc - Every 175 Fury you spend, gain Seething Fury, increasing your Agility by 8% for 6 sec. Demon Hunter Havoc 10.1 Class Set 4pc - Each time you gain Seething Fury, gain 15 Fury and the damage of your next Eye Beam is increased by 15%, stacking 5 times. Vengeance
Demon Hunter Vengeance 10.1 Class Set 2pc - Soul Fragments heal for 10% more and generating a Soul Fragment increases your Fire damage by 2% for 6 sec. Multiple applications may overlap. Demon Hunter Vengeance 10.1 Class Set 4pc - Shear and Fracture deal Fire damage, and after consuming 20 Soul Fragments, your next cast of Shear or Fracture will apply Fiery Brand for 6 sec to its target.

We're getting our first look at the patch 10.0.7 Mythic+ rankings as they remain much more stable than the raid ones, but it's important to note there is more tuning that just happened yesterday so we might be seeing some changes next week. The top two spots seem locked down for now as the two long-time dungeon dominators settle in, but the rest sees a solid amount of movement, and the tanks and healers are definitely very much changed since the patch.
Note: The logs are based on POINTS, and not actual damage or healing, meaning they log the timed completion for the specs, with higher keys getting more points, obviously. The time in which the dungeon is completed is also a factor, but a much, much smaller one, as it grants very few points if you do it significantly faster than just any in-time completion. We're also using the Normalized Aggregate Scores numbers, for clarity, meaning the top spec is marked as 100 and then the rest are ranked in relation to that peak point.
This past week was:
Fortified, Spiteful, Grievous (and Thundering )
It seems the patch changes haven't impacted Mythic+ as much as they have the raid, at least for now, as the top 2 remain exactly the same (and Fire hasn't taken over just yet). We do see an inverse move for Shadow, as it actually went up into 3rd, as opposed to its very much downward trajectory in raids, pushing Balance out of the way. Havoc also moves up one and switches places with Enhancement, while Destruction is definitely benefiting from the patch quite a bit, moving 3 up into 7th. The trio of Outlaw, Feral and Windwalker also reshuffled themselves at the end of the top 10, with the Druid dropping out of the top of that pack to the middle. And if you ever wanted proof that Mythic+ and raids are very different, the No.1 from the raids, which actually got a nerf just yesterday, finds itself in the bottom three here, as Frost DK is joined by newcomers Arcane and Devastation.
Mythic+ All Keys 95th Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
The generalist bracket tells the same story as the top percentile one, except Shadow rises even more here, still in 3rd but from a much lower 7th spot before the patch. Outlaw is also doing better here, coming in between Havoc and Enhancement's battle, while Windwalker and Feral remain stable. We then have an onslaught of Warlocks, with Destruction leading the pack and closing out the top 10, as Affliction rises the most this past week, digging itself out of the bottom 3 and up a huge 13 spots into 11th. Retribution also managed to rise out of the bottom 3 and towards the middle of the pack after the rework, with the last spots now being reserved for Arcane, Survival and Assassination.
Mythic+ All Keys All Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
Protection Paladin is at the top of the pile after the patch, having moved up quite a bit from its penultimate spot a few weeks back, pushing Blood down to 2nd. The tank revolution continues with Brewmaster's 3rd spot as both it and Prot Warrior move past Vengeance, but Guardian Druids remains stable at the bottom.
Tank All Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
Nothing is moving Preservation out of the top it seems, with Resto Druid also very much stable in 2nd, but we do see Resto Shaman move up from its penultimate spot into 3rd. Holy Paladin moves in between the Priests and Mistweaver remains at the bottom.
Healer All Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.

Nilganihmaht Control Ring (Golden Hand Mount)
