Okay so I was very frustrated with the WW monks playing as my MM hunter. noticing there was literally nothing I could do to get away. As far as following up with constant Concussions to bindings, Bursting shots, (Posthaste Disengage) that has been nerfed and even Scatter shots. I was excited to hear that they were FINALLY going to be nerfed since they have literally decimated every class when it comes to mobility and CC. However, this doesn't look anywhere near a nerf. On 10/23 I was doing a Wsg and I got one shot by a monk. I'm in slightly above average gear 852 il ... I check my combat log to see and ability I've never heard of called "Fists of the Heavens." That had done 867,000 (+200K over kill damage) I was so pissed that I looked the ability all over google to understand the details more thoroughly, only to realized this was an artifact weapon ability with a 45 second CD ... and this is what blew my *&%# head off... Attack with both fists dealing (4250%+4250%) and slowing the target for 70% for X amount of seconds. I've looked today 10/25/16 to ACTUALLY post a sceen shot of the proof of these ridiculous ability stats yet, it now is completely different http://www.wowhead.com/item=128940/fists-of-the-heavens&bonus=0 . So my question would be is blizzard hiding these outrageous damage stats? or did actually fix this? Because its a little sketchy seeing it one day and not now, but also if it was nerfed to MORE REALISTIC Stats then where the input in the patch notes???????

I mean, Blizzard's PlayMusic had broken when the Legion pre-patch had gone live. Some music addons, like DBM-Victory, depend on it in order to work properly. I tested the addon earlier and it works fine now, so it looks like Blizzard did fix the PlayMusic with Patch 7.1

I agree, it does take away from the talent. Maybe they'll rework it?

      Our returing player guide is stuffed with relevant information for players that haven't played WoW for a  while and they'd like to give it a go in 7.3.
      If you haven't played WoW for a while, we have a guide for you with all relevant information.
      The main goal of the guide is to keep it short and simple.
      General Tips
      In Patch 7.3, the 3rd relic slot will be unlocked immediately once you reach 110 and there's no need to complete individual campaigns all over again. (Source) You can forget about the Broken Shore content. Artifact Knowledge is now shared. All player start at AK Level 41 and will automatically gain 1 AK Level per week. Only one new Legendary item is added in 7.3. Any player that defeats Argus the Unmaker can get Insignia of the Grand Army. It's rewarded from the quest called The Death of a Titan. More details about the Netherlight Crucible can be found here. Two new factions are added in Patch 7.3: Argussian Reach & Army of the Light, both having new emissary quests. A new Heirloom with an interesting affix was added to the game.  Man'ari Training Amulet. Sacrifice 10% HP to gain 40% increased movement speed for 10 seconds. There are no plans to enable Draenor flying for those that haven't unlocked Draenor Pathfinder. Patch 7.3 Content Rollout
      Not all 7.3 content will be available on day 1.From the latest developer Q/A, the content rollout should look like this:
      Week 1
      Krokuun and the first two chapters of the Argus story will unlock.   Players will be able to unlock Krokuun World Quests. Week 2
      The second Argus zone Mac'Aree will become available and with it the third and fourth chapter of the Argus story. Once you progress through those chapters, you will gain access to Mac'aree World Quests, Kil'jaeden's Terrace World Quests and Western Mac'Aree World Quests. Invasion Points will also open. Week 3
      The last week marks the opening of Argus's last zone, Antoran Wastes. Players will gain access to Antoran Wastes World Quests, the Netherlight Crucible and the new dungeon - Seat of the Triumvirate. All you need to know at this point is that Argus has three zones and once you finish the story in each zone, you will gain access to world quests.
      Reputation Catch-up
      We datamined two Bind-to-Account items related to reputation catch-up with Broken Isles & Argus factions. Sources remain unknown for now. Nathrezim Tome of Manipulation increases rep gains with Broken Isles factions by 200% for 2 hours. The item's intended for alts and doesn't work past level 109. Demon's Soulstone can only be used on Argus and the item increases your reputation standing by 1,000 with all factions. It's good for catching up reputation with the Nightfallen. Gear Catch-up
      New Relinquished items are being added in 7.3 with a base item level of 910. (Source) All items can be purchased for 650 Veiled Argunite (a new currency from Argus World Quests). Crafted 7.3 gear is of ilvl 885 and can be upgraded with Primal Sargerite via Primal Obliterum up to item level 935. Old crafted gear can't be upgraded past 900. You can disenchant it into Chaos Crystal. There's a new shoulder enchant on Argus that will help you farm Primal Sargerite. More information can be found here. Dungeons have had their ilvl increased by 20 item levels on every difficulty. Normal: ilvl 845 (was 825) Heroic: ilvl 865 (was 845) Mythic: ilvl 885 (was 865) World Quest rewards scale up to item level 895. (Source) With the introduction of the Netherlight Crucible, you can now target specific relic types. Antorus the Burning Throne
      The raid won't open immediately with 7.3, but at a later point (probably in Patch 7.3.5). Once Antorus opens, Legendary items will have a base item level of 1,000. (Source) For more information about Patch 7.3, check out our Argus hub.

      Many players are still waiting for Patch 7.3 to go live, before they complete the Mage Tower Challenge for their Artifact weapon appearance, because with increasing item level, the challenge becomes more trivial. If you have your appearance unlocked and think how good you are, you probably haven't heard of Muddymonk!
      The player wrote on reddit that he finished Mage Tower Challenges for each class / specialization - that's a total of 36 challenges. Congratulations! We're posting some screenshots and the rest can be found by visiting the link at the bottom of the article.

      Primal Obliterum can only upgrade new Patch 7.3 crafted items to item level 935. Pre-7.3 items can only be upgraded to 900 with Obliterum.
      To upgrade Obliterum into Primal Obliterum, you will need 1 Obliterum & 1 Primal Sargerite. Another Primal Sargerite will be consumed when you upgrade an item with Primal Obliterum by 5 ilvls.

      New 7.3 Crafted Gear
      Only the following items can be upgraded to 935. It doesn't matter if you craft older items after 7.3 goes live, they won't go beyond 900.
