PcGamesN talked with Jeremy Feasel, who revealed a few things about the upcoming demon invasions.

We have already seen a preview of the demon invasion via an official blog post and now it's time to learn some details on their schedule. Game designer Jeremy Feasel explained to PcGamesN that the invasion forces will feel like an RTS army: they will have their own barracks, portals, defensive structures and troops. The scale of these events will be much larger than the past pre-expansion events.

As far as the timeline of these invasions is concerned, during the first week they will only occur every four hours in a couple of zones. This will increase by 300% every week for two weeks until everything is under attack all the time, meaning that in the second week there will an invasion every hours across six zones and then there will always be an invasion up in all of the affected zones.

Moreover, the demon invasions will start in more remote zones (like Tanaris) and they will slowly expand to more zones, making their way to the capital cities of Azeroth's factions. At the same time, when the Legion invasion starts, the Dark Whispers event will also begin in major cities. Players will be able to embrace the darkness and turn on their fellow players!

You can read the entire article here. The demon invasions will start on August 9.

I am hoping they make the Dreadlord transformation very powerful, I want to see chaos in the capital cities once again. One of the most fun things in maplestory for me was getting a really high lvl boss bag and dropping it in the cities . The weak perished, some of the strong rallied to support them, the rest watched and giggled with glee. I want to feel that joy again XD.

i may in fact be a terrible person........

Looks like this will be a hell of a journey. To be honest I am pretty excited about Legion and what it brings. Ready for the big day all the way..

Since I only started playing when WoD was out already, I'm quite looking forward to seeing everything that happens before/after a new expansion launch.

This sounds really exciting, upping the invasions each week will make you feel like Azeroth is really under increasing attacks from the legion, good show Blizzard!

Maining my druid, with instant flight form, will really help when players start crashing in main cities :D

I don't know about the terrible person part..........because this sounds amazing to me!  I immediately thought to myself, "I want that power so I can lay waste to all of Org!"  If the invasions actually live up to the hype, and I'm hoping they do, I will be all in for this expansion.  Either way I went ahead and turned in a vacation request for August 30th and 31st, because lets face it WoW expansion beats work.

I did the same thing XD take the day off to sit in long server ques, log out due to game crashes, horrific day one patches that  render us unable to play for hours, complain horribly, and do it again next year :D ........... well............ next expansion.......

This sounds fun and all but... what goodies do we get out of this? Achievement? Tabard? Toy? Nothing? Just curious if anyone knows.

If I remember right, battle pets and xmog gear I think.

This pre-expansion has a completely different feel to it than the last three.  I think quite a few players are excited to see how everything plays out and how much chaos ensues.

      A guide that focuses on gold gain "on the go", no tedious tasks required.
      Highlights
      All materials sell fast No need to check out crafting value vs. profit You make gold "on the way" engaging in a wide variety of activities that don't focus on gold making, such as World Quests or Glory of the Legion Hero. Blood of Sargeras
      Get Boon of the Bloodhunter. It gives a lot of extra bloods. You will notice Bloodhunter's Quarry dropping from enemies. It will contain anywhere from 1-5 Bloods of Sargeras. Engage in content that gives you a lot of bloods, the best are Mythic+0 dungeons. After having acquired enough bloods at the end of the day, visit this website to determine the most recent gold value of Blood of Sargeras. On most servers, you will get the maximum value from Potion of Prolonged Power, but we'll be focusing on raw materials. Find Illnea Bloodthorn in Dalaran. If you found which item has the most value, create a macro depending on the item you'd like to buy: /run BuyMerchantItem(1) - Order Resources Cache /run BuyMerchantItem(2) - Lean Shank /run BuyMerchantItem(3) - Fatty Bearsteak /run BuyMerchantItem(4) - Big Gamy Ribs /run BuyMerchantItem(5) - Leyblood /run BuyMerchantItem(6) - Wildfowl Egg /run BuyMerchantItem(7) - Cursed Queenfish /run BuyMerchantItem(8) - Mossgill Perch /run BuyMerchantItem(9) - Highmountain Salmon /run BuyMerchantItem(10) - Stormray /run BuyMerchantItem(11) - Runescale Koi /run BuyMerchantItem(12) - Black Barracuda /run BuyMerchantItem(13) - Aethril /run BuyMerchantItem(14) - Dreamleaf /run BuyMerchantItem(15) - Foxflower /run BuyMerchantItem(16) - Fjarnskaggl /run BuyMerchantItem(17) - Starlight Rose /run BuyMerchantItem(18) - Leystone Ore /run BuyMerchantItem(19) - Felslate /run BuyMerchantItem(20) - Stonehide Leather /run BuyMerchantItem(21) - Stormscale /run BuyMerchantItem(22) - Unbroken Claw /run BuyMerchantItem(23) - Unbroken Tooth /run BuyMerchantItem(24) - Shal'dorei Silk /run BuyMerchantItem(25) - Arkhana /run BuyMerchantItem(26) - Leylight Shard Example: I found that I will get the most value from Fjarnskaggl, So I create this macro:
      /run BuyMerchantItem(16) You can adjust the amount of stacks you want to buy, but the best is to just spam the macro until you're out of bloods if you want to deplete them all.
      Enchanting
      Greatly synergizes with blood farming. You get a lot of gold by disenchanting everything. Don't disenchant BoE purples! Chaos Crystal is the main source of income and disenchanting epic gear has a chance to yield a Blood of Sargeras. The key is to obtain as much gear as possible from World Quests (look for quests that award purple items when doing your daily cache), Mythic+0 dungeons, LFR  and other sources. If you're doing Heroic dungeons, disenchant every rare item to get Leylight Shard. Disenchant all green gear you come across into Arkhana. Sell all crystals, shards and dust. Order Hall Missions
      To further improve your gold gain, don't forget about missions that award gold! If you're success chance is 200%, you're guaranteed to receive bonus gold. Don't forget to put everything in the Auction House.
      Closing Tips
      Mobile Armory is far more comfortable to use than the in-game Auction House. Legion Companion App can be used for Order Hall Missions. Sell all Defiled Augment Runes you get from LFR, Order Hall Missions.

      Build 23623 added five mounts that will be available from Reputation Paragon. For every 20,000 reputation gained beyond Exalted with Legion factions, you'll receive a new emissary cache that has a chance to contain one of the mounts.
      Mounts are tied to specific zone caches. No indications if they are a 100% drop though.
      Collecting 10 caches awards the Paragon of the Broken Isles achievement. You can obtain the following mounts (sorted as they appear in the video).
      Highmountain Elderhorn Wild Dreamrunner Cloudwing Hippogryph Valarjar Stormwing Leywoven Flying Carpet Highmountain Elderhorn and Wild Dreamrunner are probably only ground mounts.
      Which of the mounts do you like most?

      Mages are getting a flying disc (Archmage's Prismatic Disc) as their class mount in Patch 7.2. After talking to Archmage Kalec, you accept the quest Dispersion of the Discs and the objective is to complete a Ritual in the Eye of Eternity.
      These discs are radiating with power! It must be their proximity to one another. We must take them from here should they resonate further and cause a catastrophe in these sacred halls.

      I'll send them to the one place I know where we can reign their energies in, preventing any sort of explosion. I'm speaking of the Eye of Eternity.

      There we will be able to safely finish what Antonidas was unable to complete. Speak with me again when you're ready to leave.

      22 guilds have finished the raid and cleared all 10 bosses on Mythic difficulty, there's been some more quitting and a lot more videos.
       
      Back once again for the final update in the tier 19 and Nighthold progress race, and a lot has happened since the top 5. 22 guilds have finished the raid and cleared all 10 bosses on Mythic difficulty, there's been some more quitting and a lot more videos.
      Here's the top 20, courtesy of Method.gg, which includes Chinese guilds in the rankings, as Wowprogress can't track their armory. Set sail for fail also have a problem with their armory tracking so they don't appear on Wowprog's page either, in case you were wondering.

      It's very interesting to see the Asia guilds clustered up in spots 10 to 14, since they get the reset two days after the US and one day after EU. This particular progress was a little strange for the Chinese guilds, however, as they usually come out ahead of the Korean guilds, but this time around their Lunar New Year came down right at the very beginning of progress and so almost all their top guilds took some time off. The 21st to cross that final threshold was another Chinese guild, KeaHoarl, and the most recent Gul'dan killer was Fusion, who were previously banned for a week after exploiting Star Augur.
      Some more bad news struck as well, with Danish Terrace joining From Scratch and Midwinter in not participating in progress:
      And here are some more Gul'dan videos: the US first/World 5th by Limit and Asia first/World 10th by AFK R. If you missed the top 3 videos, you can check them out here.
       

      That's it for our Nighthold and tier 19 coverage, we hope you enjoyed these updates and their format/frequency. Do let us know if there's something you'd like changed and improved, and we'll see you in tier 20 and Tomb of Sargeras!

      Farseer's Raging Tempest is Shaman's Class Mount in 7.2. You're sent to the Throne of Four Winds to assist Thunderaan in the new Gathering of the Storms Scenario. 
      Gathering of the Storms
      Thunderaan has asked me to send you to the Throne of the Four Winds to assist him with a situation.

      Speak with me again when you're ready to leave, Farseer. The quest is quite short. Three color tints are available for the mount and in the recent build Elemental / Enhancement tints were swapped. Elementals have the fiery appearance now and Enhancement Shamans get the airy mount. The Restoration spec's appearance should be more watery, but what's weird is that it has more thunders than the Enhancement spec for now.
      Shamans get one of the coolest class mounts, because the vast majority uses existing animations of past mounts.
