I have to say that I loved this short.  I was on the fence about the Gul'dan short, but this one, was great.  For a minute there I thought they might even be teasing a re-work/update of Karazhan.  Either way, I'm now looking forward to the Illidan one even more!

I knew Khadgar was a great character, but this really highlighted just how amazing he is tbh. The Illidan one is truly fantastic, I saw it at the Legion event and was just blown away.

I feel like they're also using these shorts to "dispel" certain story paths. For example, this ruins the rumours of Khadgar being corrupted by power and becoming evil. I mean, it could still happen, but given this short, it feels much less likely now.

Certainly a possibility but it feels out of place. From my memory every WoW short has always contributed to back story. It either hyped a character or explained them a bit. Khadgar being an burning legion doomsday prepper is pretty much established. I mean back in BC he was all anti legion. Even in WoD like the Iron Horde was supposed to be the big threat but early on Khadgar was heavily hinting at legiony stuff. 

so, its certainly a good video yes. however, it didn't set up things. like i thought khadgar was going to get an artifact weapon (technically he sorta did already though XD). that would have been relevant and added something more. Besides, I think someone else Dalaran associated is going to become all evil, there's been bigger hints at that :P

The only plus is that we got to see Jaina's true Dreadlord form in this video, so that's nice.

Just watched the Illidan video, and you were 100% right.  It was awesome.  It was a little short, but still awesome.  Made me want to start a demon hunter immediately.

      Four color variations are available for the Rogue's Class Mount Shadowblade's Murderous Omen and you get it by assassinating the infiltrating homunculi via Hiding In Plain Sight (Stormwind) // Hiding In Plain Sight (Orgrimmar).
      Greetings, Shadowblade. I hope you are not too upset that I began without you, I have a bit of trouble controlling myself around the mindless undead. Yes, you heard me right. Taerir, the very Taerir that has been standing in the Hall of Shadows for many months now, was the undead pawn of a dreadlord. And there are more of them - in our cities, rising through the ranks of the aristocracy, growing in power and influence, and nearly undetectable.
      The /mountspecial is shared with the Blizzard store mount  Heart of the Aspects animation.
      As usual, characters in our Class Mount preview videos wear Tier 20 Sets and the Rogue is no exception.

      Game Director Ion "Watcher" Hazzikostas was answering player-submitted questions, dealing with a wide-variety of topics such as Legendary items, Artifact Power, 7.2 relics, Mythic raiding and more. Our round-up covers most of the discussed topics.
      Artifacts
      Balance of Power appearances won't be account-wide. Effort requirements will be revisited. Hidden Artifact appearances have bad luck protection since 7.1.5. Artifact appearances aren't cannon, they're only cosmetics, so alt-friendliness isn't important. Artifact Power
      The goal is to offer progressing of your character providing choices during the process. The developers don't want AP to be the only reward you're looking out for.  Repetitive farming of Mythic+ isn't fun, which is why a lot of AP rewards were removed from chests and redistributed elswhere. In addition to that the amount of AP gained from the weekly chest has been increased. Devs want to add diminishing returns to bring players to a point where there's no desire to farm AP any longer. They don't want the final 7.2 trait to feel mandatory. You won't be able to use items that grant AP that you got with Artifact Knowledge 25 or less to avoid grinding before 7.2. New catch-up tomes will be added (similar to those you can buy now). Datamining
      Game files contain a lot of placeholders, abandoned data or developer ideas. Their removal would cost time that is spent elsewhere for designing new things. Mythic Raiding
      The devs think there's a lot of grinding, but some issues should be addressed in 7.2 (chain running Maw was specifically mentioned). Legendary Items
      It wouldn't make sense making legendaries change based on your spec, as they have a fantasy behind them. Further bad luck protection improvements down the road for 7.2. The system will evaluate how many legendary items you acquired for a specific spec. If you don't have any for spec X, you'll have a higher chance to get one, even though you have more for spec Y. Guilds benching players for bad legendaries based on sims aren't making a right choice. Crafted legendary items in 7.2 were introduced to keep professions relevant, not to address issues with Legendary items. They can be sold. Crafted legendaries aren't intended to be best and don't count against bad luck protection. Patch 7.1.5
      Changes to secondary stats were a success, but Unstable Arcanocrystal is an exception. The item won't be used that much when item level increases with Tomb raid in 7.2. PvP Q/A
      In a few weeks, there will be a PvP Q/A with Holinka including an esports 2017 announcement. Relics
      Order Hall research in 7.2 has two additional tiers and the 7th tier adds a secondary trait to relics. These relics narrow down the difference between best and worse relics and offer exciting relic rewards from a variety of bosses. The secondary trait will always be a throughput trait and different from the first one. Tier 20 Set Bonuses
      Still in development, nothing's final and they will change before release. Legion Tier Sets went to 6/6 to allow equipping of Legendary items and the team thinks it's cool to have a cloak matching your set. No plans to make 2-piece bonuses from different Tier Sets exclusive, but if they find out it's the only option they will take a closer look at the issue. Trinkets
      Players prefer trinkets with stats not active abilities. Trinket tuning for 7.2 is still in the works. Below is the VoD to the Live Developer Q/A

      *Affliction Lock - Orc, ilevel 885, 38 artifact traits*
      1600-1700 2's rating: with a Resto Shaman
      1800+ 3's rating: with a Resto Shaman/DH
      Pets: Fel Hunter (Permanent) then: Inferno stun / Fel hunter
       
      My question is how do you play with your lock in 2's vs 3's strategy?
      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      (1). Do you just outlast and wait for dampening? spread pressure, UA+Drain when you can, and try and outlast with:
       
      Talents: Writhe / Absolute / Howl / Siphon / Demon / Service / Phantom ?
       
      Honor Talents: Relentless / Mind Quickness / Tongues or Weakness / Nether / Deaths Embrace / Amplify ?
      ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      (2). OR do you try to set up burst windows? with some what spread pressure    (its hard to get dots on both healer/dps) but CC chain the healer and burst with UA + Drain on the DPS for a kill window? with:
       
      Talents: MG / Absolute / Howl / Siphone / Demon / Service / Phantom?
       
      Honor Talents: Relentless / Mind Quickness / Tongues or Weakness / Nether / Deaths Embrace / Amplify ?
      ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      For 3's I do the (1) for the spread pressure since its hard for the healer to maintain, but for 2's I keep trying (1) and (2), I just cant seem to find the right way to climb in 2's
      ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      Any advice on talents/honor talents or play style for Affliction in 2's or 3's? or anything you try with your healers? I'm open for suggestions and talent changes
       
      thank you.

      Plenty of Legion RNG comes from Diablo III. We've got "Bounties" in form of World Quests and in Patch 7.2 we get two additional Diablo elements - Reputation Paragon & Kadala!
      Legendary Targetting
      Relinquished Items were added yesterday in the latest build of 7.2 (#23623). The items are unique per slot and have a chance to contain a Legendary item.
      A funny thought quoting redditor WoWAltoholic here:
      New Meta: Roll new character, avoid any activity that can drop a legendary and only farm and gamble on the biS legendary using this vendor, banking on the much higher drop chance for 1st and second legendary.
      Congrats this is your new main.

      The items can be bought from a vendor on the Broken Shore. The currency is Nethershard used during the Legion invasion event. You gain Nethershards when killing rares on the Broken Shore. Prices are just placeholders so players can't access them for now. It's literally Timeless Isle v 2.0.
      Lore (Source)
      Yeah, the primary purpose here is similar to the gear vendors from the Timeless Isle or Hellfire Peninsula. Adding the ability for these items to create Legendaries is just an extra bit of functionality that makes sense for Legion.

      Note that the actual costs of the tokens are intentionally much higher than their final values will end up being, as they’re not ready for testing. Making them prohibitively expensive was just an easy way for us to make sure they’re inaccessible for now. Reputation Paragon
      For every 20,000 reputation gained past Exalted, you'll get an emisssary chest which has a chance to contain a mount.

      The following caches can be obtained:
      Dreamweaver Cache Farondis Chest Highmountain Supplies Nightfallen Cache Valarjar Strongbox Warden's Supply Kit Mounts they can contain were added in yesterday's build.
      Cloudwing Hippogryph Highmountain Elderhorn Leywoven Flying Carpet Valarjar Stormwing Wild Dreamrunner Below are the new mount models taken from the Mount Journal.

      Another preview is up and this time we'll be dealing with Hunter's Class Mount Huntmaster's Loyal Wolfhawk that is obtained through the Night of the Wilds quest. There are three different color variations for Hunters.
      The Hunter's wearing Normal difficulty Tier 20 Set that drops in the Tomb of Sargeras. Tier 20 Sets throwback to Tier 6 Sets, they are even named identically.
