Just a few moments after my post, Blizzard unveiled some of the content additions in Patch 7.1. 16 new pets from Wrath of the Lich King dungeons are coming and there are new tamable mechanical spiders for Hunters!

Please note that Goblins are still working on updates.

New adventures feature many additions we already previewed, these involve:

Suramar Quest Line Continuation

  • New campaign quests aimed to unfold a new story revolving around Suramar.

Trial of Valor

  •  Helarjar World QuestsHelarjar World Quests will unlock after completing a series of quests.
    • You'll witness the influence of Helya and her forces across the Broken Isles.

Now comes to the fun part! If you enjoy collecting pets, Patch 7.1 will increase your pet arsenal!

New Pets

Raiding with Leashes IV: Wrath of the Lick KingRaiding with Leashes IV: Wrath of the Lick King 

This is a really neat addition especially if you're still farming mounts, such as Mimiron's HeadMimiron's Head, because these drop in the very same raids as the mounts do: Ulduar, Trial of the Crusader and Icecrown Citadel.

After collecting all pets, you will be mailed a Celestial InvitationCelestial Invitation. It starts a quest ( A Celestial Invitation), where you need to defeat Algalon the Observer in order to obtain StardustStardust.

Falcosaur Pets

WarcraftPets suggest collectors can now acquire:

Algalon Encounter

During the encounter, Algalon will be using three legendary pets:

New Tamable Arachnodrone Spiders

Doctor Weavil went mad and a new adventure is available on Alcaz Island

Hunters will be able to obtain Electrified KeyElectrified Key to tame on of the three archondrones.

  • It won't be easy to reach them as there are defensive turrets and proximity mines.

Other obtainable rewards

Beyond its new group content (like the new Karazhan Mythic dungeon and the Trial of Valor raid), World of Warcraft Patch 7.1 holds many new adventures to be discovered and undertaken on your own. Here’s a look at an assortment of activities you can enjoy in addition to your return to Karazhan.

Look to Suramar

Your heroic efforts in Suramar will continue in Patch 7.1 with a new series of quests that unlock over a period of nine weeks, ultimately leading you to the very entrance of the Nighthold. You’ll delve into the story of the Nightfallen insurrection against the Nightborne and their Legion allies.

If you follow the quest line to completion, you’ll be much closer to obtaining the wondrous new Arcanist’s Manasaber mount.

Look for the quest “Lockdown” to get started.

Helya’s Treachery

The ruler of Helheim is Helya, a deposed val’kyr queen who is determined to thwart the Valarjar in any way she can. Search Dalaran for the new quest, “A Call to Action”, to begin a quest line to discover the depth of Helya’s influence well beyond Tideskorn Harbor.

Your primary goal will be to unlock new Helarjar World Quests. These will then appear for you all across the Broken Isles, so you can help put a stop to Helya's infernal impact.

A New Invasion

The coastline of the Broken Isles is under assault from an invasive, predatory species, and they’re breeding out of control! These new Falcosaurs drop Falcosaur Eggs and Falcosaur Feathers, reagents for new First Aid and Cooking recipes.

Save an Orphaned Falcosaur pet to begin a journey toward understanding these hungry creatures. You might just earn a unique new mount along the way.

Raiding with Leashes IV

Pet Battlers rejoice! The time has finally come to delve into Ulduar, Trial of the Crusader, and Icecrown Citadel in search of new rare pets and the chance to do battle with a new Celestial foe!

Pictured here: Stardust (special encounter), Boneshard (Lord Marrowgar), G0-R41-0N Ultratonk (Mimiron), and Creeping Tentacle (Yogg-Saron).

Stardust the celestial bunny won’t come easily. To get your hands on this rapturous rabbit, you’ll have to first obtain all 16 new pets from bosses across three raid dungeons. Only that impressive act will earn you an invitation (in the mail) to take on Algalon and his legendary pets: Comet, Constellatius, and Cosmos. You must then defeat him with a team of your own in glorious battle!

Something, Something, Something, Guard Dog

When he died, the second that Dr. Weavil’s heart stopped, his ultimate plan was put into motion. After adventurers looted his body, a viscous, yellow fluid slowly filled his veins, and jumper cables were implanted to shock him back to . . . life. Was this undeath? Alchemical engineering? No one is quite sure, but it left him sallow-skinned and over four times as evil as before.

What’s worse, he started an internship program.

Return to Alcaz Isle to get to get to the bottom of Dr. Weavil’s insidious plans, and perhaps you’ll take home a nice souvenir. These include:

  • Machine Fluid—a consumable that makes a pet or battle pet look oil-coated for 60 minutes.
  • Drudge Fluid—a consumable that makes a pet or battle pet look sallow for 60 minutes. Ew.
  • Big Red Ray—a new toy that makes your pet or battle pet look big and red for 15 seconds.
  • Electrified Key—allows Hunters to activate one of three Arachnodrone mechanical spiders.

The spiders are tameable. You just have to get to them.

Getting there won’t be easy. Dr. Weavil kind of went nuts and covered Alcaz Isle with anti-aircraft artillery (so you can’t fly), proximity mines (so you can’t run in a straight line), and defensive turrets (so you can’t think straight). Make it past those and you’ll still have to overcome his interns: Drudge Gnomes who mindlessly work for the little big guy.

And then there’s Dr. Weavil himself—just waiting for you in his compound, which probably has a guard dog.

It has a guard dog.

      The latest information about Patch 7.3.2 and beyond!
      Patch 7.3.2 went live this week and we compiled a hub with all important information.
      Welcome to our latest Patch 7.3.2 hub. We will keep it updated with latest news and hotfixes, so that you won't miss out on any important information! Our class guides have been updated for the latest patch.
      Patch 7.3.2
      Instead of releasing Patch 7.3.5, Blizzard went with the odd numbering and released Patch 7.3.2. Main goal of the patch are bug fixes and tuning in preparation for Legion's last raid Antorus, the Burning Throne. In addition to that, the patch introduced a new Primal Sargerite vendor and some exiciting lore details have been entirely omitted from the official patch notes for obvious reasons.
      Official Patch Notes Legion Live Developer Q/A with Ion Hazzikostas (October 5) Primal Sargerite Vendor Patch 7.3.2 Hotfixes
      The following hotfixes have been applied to live servers so far:

      Legion's last raid tier will open at a later time, probably after BlizzCon 2017. Here's a collection of all articles about the raid that we covered thus far:

      Who We Are
      Tequila Sundown is a growing raid team formed within the <Karma Horde> guild on US-Stormreaver. Lead by a husband/wife team with high-level raiding experience dating back to WotLK, we're a "positively determined" progression team that maintains a light-hearted atmosphere while tackling mythic difficulty content. We're mature adults with jobs and family seeking like-minded players who have a passion for the game but want to avoid the needless angst or drama that often gets associated with progression raiding. We log on to have fun - so come have some fun with us!

      A Team Within a Community
      Our raid team is one of four within the larger guild of <Karma Horde>, which was formed back during WotLK. As such, the guild and Discord are very active and social. There are always people around online and in-game. The community atmosphere is welcoming and friendly to players of all levels. The guild enforces a Code of Conduct that has zero tolerance for hate/offensive speech.

      We care more about the people we play with than their item levels or progression rankings. We want players who are going to log in on non-raid nights and be down for all the other things we're into: pushing mythic+, doing world quests, PVP shenanigans, achievement hunting, hyper-competitive fishing.. there's so much to do and so many ways to enjoy the game. This is our favorite hobby and we'd like to play with you if it is yours, too.

      Progression Goals
      We are 7/11-Heroic 11/11-Normal ABT.
      We strive for a fun environment that takes the challenges of mythic seriously and giving the content the respect it deserves. Our aim is, as all mythic teams, full clear of content but with always keeping the friendly spirit of camaraderie alive. Performance matters, but so does staying positive and finding the fun in the difficulty of a raid.
      We do not require mythic raid experience to join our team but we do expect mythic-level dedication and accountability from all of our raiders.

      Raid Days/Times
      Our mandatory raids are:
      Tuesdays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Thursdays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Optional:
      Sundays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Sundays are for raiding the previous raid difficulty.

      Recruitment Needs
      DPS: YES. Will consider all, but would love to pick up a Hunter and a Mage for ranged, and add an Enhance Shaman, Windwalker Monk, or Survival Hunter for melee. 
      Tank: NO. No current needs.

      The Nitty Gritty
      If you're intrigued, please check out our wiki on the <Karma Horde> subreddit. This will give you the inside picture on how we operate as a raid team.

      Today we have some nerdscreams and the raid setup from Method's Argus kill, stealth hotfixes for the encounter, overall endboss stats for all of Legion as well as the Exorsus World 2nd Aggramar kill video.
      The race to World First ended today as Method continued their recent dominance of Legion's raids and took down the probably final boss of the expansion, a mere 8 days after it was released (or 7 days after they started progress). We've already covered the WF itself, but there have been plenty of new stats coming after the kill, including the wipe count and raid setup. But first let's take a look/listen to the nerdscreams as the boss went down, somewhat less enthusiastic than usual I'd have to say:

      Method also shared what stealth hotfixes happened while they were progressing on the final boss, not mentioned in any official notes:
      We then have the raid composition for the kill itself, featuring 12 different classes including 3 rouges, 3 mages and 2 hunters:

      And on to the wipe count, it took 320 failed attempts to get the world soul down as we already mentioned, and here's a comparison table for all the Legion endbosses, including the time they stayed alive for:
      Raid / Boss WF Guild Wipe Count Time to kill (from region reset) Time to kill (from previous boss)  The Emerald Nightmare
      Xavius  
      Exorsus 19 17h40min
      +16h from US launch 2h43min  Trial of Valor
      Helya
       Method 223 2 days 7h
      +16h from US launch 2 days 1h  The Nighthold
      Gul'dan  
      Exorsus 247 11 days 6h
      +16h from US launch 4 days 22h The Tomb of Sargeras
      Kil'jaeden
       Method 654 19 days 5h
      +16h from US launch 11 days 19h  Antorus: the Burning Throne
      Argus the Unmaker
       Method 320 7 days 8h
      +16h from US launch 6 days 14h And finally, we also got to see Exorsus World 2nd Aggramar kill video:
      The race itself isn't quite over yet, as only Method have managed to end the Unmaker and finish up Antorus, and so the silver is still up in the air. Will Exorsus secure their expected second place finish or will the Asia guilds climb further up in this tier? Limit has also had the reset for two days now and seeing how crucial the gear from the 2nd clear is they still have quite the head start over Style War and Alpha. And let's not forget current 4th place holders Memento, who also might make it an all EU top 3. There are quite a few combinations that are open, so keep following Method.gg's live coverage to find out how it all shakes out, or check back in here when some more kills happen.
