       Abyss Worm is the first mount from Tomb of Sargeras and according to the Encounter Journal it will drop from Mistress Sassz'ine.
      We expect more mounts to be added soon, because Glory of the Tomb Raider currently offers no mount reward.

      It's been a while since we last posted videos on our YouTube channel. We're back and today we're looking at the Warlock Class Mount coming in Patch 7.2. All available tints were included in the video.

      Changes to Tier 20 Arcane Mage & Assassination Rogue set bonuses are coming, developers discuss possible changes to Mistweaver Monks, Shaman class mount will switch tints between specs and the crafting reagents for Paladin & Warlock class mounts will be re-evaluated in a future 7.2 build.
      Arcane Mage Tier 20 2P Set Bonus
      Item - Mage T20 Arcane 2P Bonus will be redesigned to work with other spell than Greater Invisibility to avoid spamming utility buttons for a DPS increase.
      Sigma (Source)
      We're considering making the set bonus work with some spell other than Greater Invisibility, to avoid overloading a utility button with a rotational DPS benefit. Mistweaver Monks & Mythic Raiding
      The MW community feels their spots in Mythic raids are jeopardized and progression hampers their class. No immediate changes are planned, but Sigma drafted possible future changes.
      Sigma (Source)
      Much like the Disc post in the other thread, Mistweaver is more in a state of thinking ahead for possible refinements, but no immediate shake-ups. This is preliminary, but a possible direction is that some things could be smoothed out by reducing the emphasis on Essence Font. That could help with, for example, drawing out more of a regular ongoing decision between Enveloping Mist, Vivify, and Effuse, rather than having that so often pushed out by Essence Font. Also, making the value of mastery more stable, and reducing the importance of churning as much mana into Essence Fonts as possible. For fair warning, a cooldown on EF is not out of the question after seeing how it's played out, but that would come alongside seeing how other heals might have to be strengthened.

      Rising Thunder has wound up underperforming which we would likely look at at the same time. It would likely be helped regardless by changes that made it easier to spend mana and GCDs on Rising Sun Kick, without always taking away from something like an Essence Font. Paladin & Warlock Class Mounts Requirements
      Both classes need expensive materials to craft their class mounts. Requirements will be re-examined soon.
      Muffinus (Source)
      Why do only the Warlock and Paladin class mount quests require obscenely expensive mats? Its a bit ridiculous we alone have to spend tons of gold to get our mounts and no other classes do.
      I posted this in the main thread, but cross-posting it here for visibility - we'll be re-examining the rare material requirement for the Paladin and Warlock class mounts, we don't want the gate for these to be an expensive tradeskill material. 
      Tier 20 Assassination Rogue 2P Set Bonus
      Item - Rogue T20 Assassination 2P Bonus Item - Rogue T20 Assassination 4P Bonus The bonus to Garrote would only make sense while picking Exsanguinate or in a situation where you keep up two Garrotes. It's needless to say that after multiple Ruptures are up, Garrote may not be worth using.
      Sigma (Source)
      The 2-piece will get some single-target benefit. That said, part of the benefit of the bonus is the improved multi-target capability that Garrote has with a shorter cooldown. Shaman Class Mount Adjustments
      Currently, Enhancement Shamans have a fiery appearance for their class mount (Farseer's Raging Tempest), which will be fixed in a future update. The spec will switch mount tints with Elemental.
      Muffinus (Source)
       In the next PTR build, elemental will be fiery, and enhancement will be stormy.

      We are also making changes to the resto version to make it more watery, and remove the strobe effects.
