Patch 7.1 delivers some nice changes for alts! The first one is related to Suramar dungeons that have a reputation requirement, while the other one deals with World Quests.

  • In Patch 7.1, the Arcway & the Court of Stars will be accessible to all your alts if you unlock them on your main character.
  • The reputation requirement to start the quest for both dungeons is 8,000/12,000 Honored reputation with The Nightfallen.

The second change is related to World Quests.

  • You won't need to attain Friendly reputation with Legion factions on secondary characters to unlock World Quests.
  • After reaching Level 110, you can go straight to Dalaran, talk to Archmage Khadgar who gives you Flight Master's WhistleFlight Master's Whistle.

The Blood of Sargeras trader Illnea Bloodthorn now sells Order Resources CacheOrder Resources Cache. It's BoA so it may be relevant to your alt.

Some other things I'd like to see implemented that would improve alt quality of life:

  • Account-wide reputation, or the Mists of Pandaria reputation system; you bought a tome to increase reputation gain for your alts by a % after reaching Exalted with a faction "the regular way" on your main.
  • Shared Artifact Power or Artifact Knowledge.

Are you currently playing an alt or are you still busy with your main?

Still busy on my main (Ret Pally) but off and on playing alts.  This will certainly be a welcomed change.

Working my main and one alt right now, hunter and rogue. I generally run alts to cover all professions but right now i am more interested in getting alts to 110 and getting artifact knowledge rolling. I feel like if i do not they will be so far behind they will be unplayable later.

THIS, SO MUCH THIS. The main reason I'm delaying to start leveling my alts if due the whole chores with reputations. Would be so good if they were shared between accounts. Farming for rep more than once is anything but fun.

I'm not sure they're gonna give us shared Artifact Power or Artifact Knowledge. The Artifact was designed to be a progression system, and there's not really any issue with it since no one cares what traits you have.

If they gave us shared Artifact Knowledge, they would be forcing the hardcore players to have tons of level 110 alts so they can all get work orders for it.

I think if a change like this would happen it would be more along the lines of getting artifact knowledge quicker or starting at a certain lvl based on what your highest lvl was among ur toons. 

Considering how big of an alt hoarder I am, I would rly love to see some alt love.

honestly i think the pandaland system would probably be the best, you still need to work a bit on your alt but its accelerated, i did like that system quite a bit. and frankly an ap booster would be nice too, simply because it won't take long to get every trait unlocked, its that 20 stack one they added later that is the mountain, in the end i view the 20 stack as the "hardcore" vs casual divider. So it would be nice to get the basic things faster on alts but then slow it down for the big 20 stack. It may have some implications for mythic races first stuff but that's a minute fraction of the playerbase, "needs of the many". 

granted blizz won't make it too easy, gotta keep us paying that 15 a month

It would be easy to limit 2 work orders per account. AK would be account-wide and upgraded regardless of which character you play with no room for abuse.

Well to be honest, after reading this.  I changed the way I am doing my 3rd character.  

Main toon.  I am Honored all the way across, before I figured out the whole World Quest thing.  I was getting 830/840 Equipment all the time since I had unlocked lots of the Pillar Gear.  But the stuff I was picking up was better so I would just buy it and stick it in the bank.

Second one, I just go to Friendly and moved to the next zone, not really finishing anything.  Not great gear.  I am seeing 800 level gear for world quests.  

Third toon, I am finishing zones then moving to the next.  Concentrating on Leveling Leather-working / Skinning not worrying about rep because of this guide.  I will let you know what I see once I get to 110 and world quests.

even a percentage based artifact knowledge would be nice. 
tie it to level, capped at say 25% of original amount earned and spent on your main
send it to them as a soulbound token they can use on whichever they want

      Blizzard clarified that Brewfest trinkets should have item level 335 and they're working on a fix to bring them to the correct item level.
      Check out our Brewfest guide for more details!

      Hey guys! We're working on a fix at the moment to bring these items to the correct ilvl, which should be ilvl 335 at 120. This fix should also be retroactive, so if you got any of them already no worries ?

      Brewfest is here and we have no updates this year, only Coren Direbrew's trinkets have been adjusted for level 120.
      The event's Brewmaster achievement is required for What a Long, Strange Trip It's Been, so it must be completed if you're working on your Reins of the Violet Proto-Drake mount. Trinkets have been updated to ilvl 289 this year. Don't forget to queue up for Coren Direbrew every day for a chance to receive loot, mounts, and check out our Brewfest guide for more details!

      Do you love eating delicious faire food, drinking bountiful beverages, and riding rams around barrels of apples? Brewfest has arrived and you can do all that and more during this holiday.
      When: September 20–October 6
      Where: Outside Ironforge and Orgrimmar 
      Coren Direbrew is up to his usual tricks within Blackrock Depths, but characters levels 20-120 can put a stop to his brawling ways by hopping into the Group Finder (I). There just might be a Swift Brewfest Ram or Great Brewfest Kodo in your future!
      What do you get when you have everything? Use your Brewfest Prize Tokens to purchase some of the festive Brewfest items including: the Throwing Sausage, Gravil Goldbraid's Famous Sausage Hat, and Synthebrew Goggles XL. 
      The competing brewers from across Azeroth have made sure to bring along some great brews for you to sample, each with a cosmetic effect:
      T’Chali Voodoo Brewery – Spirit Spirits
      Gordok – Gordok Bock
      Thunderbrew – Storming Saison
      Drohn’s Distillery – Mannoroth’s Blood Red Ale
      Barleybrew – Shimmer Stout

      Alliance players have contributed enough resources and can queue up for the Battle for Stromgarde Warfront for the first time to claim their ilvl 370 reward.
      Alliance
      For the next 7 days, Alliance players will be able to queue up for the Battle for Stromgarde Warfront and fight against the Horde AI. Defeat the Commander to get the War is Hell achievement and a once-per-cycle ilvl 370 reward.
      If you're not able to click the War Table in Boralus, make sure to complete the quick intro quest to unlock Warfronts (Warfront: The Battle for Stromgarde).
      The minimum item level requirement to queue up for the Warfront is 320. You'll receive a piece of ilvl 340 loot that can titanforge every time you complete the Warfront. You can't get rings or trinkets from Warfronts at this time.
      Horde
      The Horde still controls Arathi Highlands and have access to the world boss, quests, and rares. You can find more details here. In 7 days, Alliance will control the zone and the second Horde contribution phase begins.

      Two G'huun kills in one day, with Limit's coming some 6 hours after Method's World First, it seems that lockout extension decision was indeed what cost the US guild the No.1 spot. We also got nerdscreams from both guilds for the entire raid, wipe counts from Method for the kill and more info!
      Yesterday was the highlight of the Uldir Mythic progress race, as we got our final World First and Method claimed their 10th trophy.

      (You can also check out the stream cut of Method's WF video,
      kill clip and more in our previous post.)
      It all came down to Limit's decision to extend their lockout, due to having sub 1% tries and feeling that Method was closing in on them and would get the kill on Tuesday while Limit were re-clearing. They bet wrong, as Method's best try was at 4% before the re-clear and Limit spent a whole day hitting their head against the G'huun wall after their reset, only getting new gear from the weekly Mythic+ chest, some Heroic kills and whatever M+ dungeons they could run. It simply wasn't enough and they remained on their best 1% try, aka the 639k HP one. They did push insanely hard on their reset day, raiding until 6 in the morning and just coming up short.
      
      Meanwhile the EU reset arrived and Method took quite a while to re-clear, taking around 7 hours to down 7/8 Mythic, as well as do a Heroic run. Fully geared up they immediately got their best try ever on G'huun, after 2 pulls, getting him down to 1.8%. It seemed all done at that point, as Limit were still sleeping and/or had to go to work, and Exorsus hadn't downed Mythrax after the reset. However, it took quite a while longer for Method to get that killing blow, as they struggled for just under 3 hours to get that 8/8. Considering how much farther along Limit were, the fact that they had more time on G'huun and the timing of their reset, it's almost 100% certain that they would have gotten the World First on Tuesday had they just re-cleared the raid.
      They actually managed to get the kill, even without the extra gear, some 6+ hours after Method. Here are both guilds' killshots:


      The other big news here is that Limit announced they'd be raiding full-time in the next raid, meaning the competition will be a lot fiercer and Method have to watch their backs:
      You should also read all of the recent tweets by @maximimwow, as he goes into a lot of the details of the race, including Limit's time commitments etc.
      And so we have the top 2 locked in after a grueling 9 days of progression, with no one else having managed to get the big blob down. We did get some wipe counts for the raid as well, from Method's Deepshades:
      So Fetid Devourer was almost the second hardest boss of the raid, with Mythrax coming in some 50 pulls later and G'huun properly being the endboss that he was supposed to be. The amount of pulls it took after the reset was around 20 or so (from memory) so the extra gear was key for everything, making it that much more impressive that Limit even managed to get a kill at all without that second reset's work of Mythic Uldir loot.
      In closing, we just want to congratulate both guilds on an amazing performance and thank Method for making it this entertaining to follow the race. The amount of tension and excitement in the final day of the race was so high thanks to the stream, and it can only get better from here as we potentially see both or even all guilds stream their progress live from now on. With Method's streams being the No.1 and 2 on all of Twitch and WoW being the top game for almost the entire time of streaming, as well as all the Method streams combined having a grand total of over 250 THOUSAND viewers, the raid progress race is one of the most watched WoW esport events ever and it's only going to get bigger in the future!
      We'll continue covering the other G'huun kills as they come in, but we wanted to thank you for following our coverage and thank Method again for their live coverage as well as the streams. The next raid, Siege of Zuldazar, sounds like a bit of a departure from the usual ones, so the race will be extra interesting as well.

      Method are the first guild in the world to earn the Hall of Fame: G'huun (Horde) achievement. Blizzard clarified how it works and who will be able to use the Famed Slayer title.
      Hall of Fame Achievements
      Battle for Azeroth introduced new raid achievements to the game and if you're among the first 100 guilds worldwide to defeat the final raid boss of a raid tier on Mythic difficulty, you will be granted a title. In this case, it revolves around G'huun and the Famed Slayer of G'huun title.
      Hall of Fame: G'huun (Alliance) Hall of Fame: G'huun (Horde) After 100 guilds of each faction earn the achievement, cross-realm Mythic Uldir will become available.
      Famed Slayer Title Clarifications
      In order to use the title, you need to be in a guild that has earned the Hall of Fame achievement. On top of that, the Cutting Edge: G'huun achievement is also required.
      If you're wondering what happens if you leave a guild that has earned this achievement, chances are you probably won't be able to use the title, since you'll no longer meet the requirements. This makes perfect sense and prevents guilds from selling the title. Some exceptions could apply and the title may not be removed if you actually were in the Mythic group of 20 players that has earned the Hall of Fame achievement for a specific guild (needs confirmation).
