We'll be able to catch up on Artifact Knowledge in Patch 7.1.5 using Order Resources.

The main source of Order Resources is the Blood of Sargeras trader in Dalaran. You can buy Order Resources CacheOrder Resources Cache that will give 200 Order Resources for one Blood of SargerasBlood of Sargeras. Bloods are farmed via World Quests and Heroic+ dungeons.

Main Characters

A new quest was added to your Class Hall called Knowledge is Power. You need to turn in 500 Order Resources to get Artifact Research SynopsisArtifact Research Synopsis.  The quest is repeatable and can be completed until you reach Artifact Knowledge level 15. After that you will need to place work orders as usual. A total of 7,500 Order Resources is thus required to reach said AK level. That's 37.5 Blood of SargerasBloods of Sargeras.

Alts

Depending on the Artifact Knowledge level of your main, you can purchase research compendiums and mail them to your alts. These items are bound to your Battle.net account.

As an example, if you have Artifact Knowledge Level 15, you can buy Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I & IIArtifact Research Compendium: Volumes I & II for 1,000 Order Resources. I think every 5 levels of Artifact Knowledge will unlock a new compendium. If you use the item without any research documents, you instantly reach Artifact Knowledge level 10 (it's like that on PTR right now).

I'm not really sure, what does the wording "when used in conjunction with all Artifact Research documents" mean on the compendiums meant for alts. Does it make sense to stockpile & not use Artifact Reseach Documents on alts (before 7.1.5 goes live) to get the highest possible AK? Or will those be consumed along with the use of Compendiums?

If i have kept my artifact knowledge in the bag of one of my alts, will I be able to buy up to AK15 and then use the ones that I have stored in my bag?

The wording is the way it is to work with people who have AK Research Notes in their bags. If you use the Compendium that boosts your AK level to 10, it will boost your AK level to 10.

Let's assume you're starting at AK level 1. If you have 9 Research Notes in your bag, it'll consume them and give you a free level to get to 10. If you have 11 Notes, it'll consume 10 and leave one there.

I believe the main focus of the wording is to stop people from using it to get to AK20, then using the previously researched notes to jump to 25. It will consume any notes that you have in your bags, up to 20.

Is there a pre-requirement for this quest?  Other than being 110?

I don't have it available on either of my 110's.  Just the normal artifact research options.

So if an alt has researched to level 15 I still need to buy the I-IV compendium for 2000 OH resources to get to 20? Wonder why they would do it that way? Why not sell separate tomes for 1-5, 5-10, 10-15, 15-20? If I am understanding what you are saying, this means I will be sitting stagnant on my lowbie alts until the patch comes out.

On the plus side, at least Bloods are super easy to farm, so there's no shortage of resources!

Is the cost of the other compendiums known, or is it 1000 resources and you will only be able to buy the highest level you have access to.

      Celestalon clarified in a series of tweets how the secret The Hivemind mount works.
      The multi-person capability is a special perk for the Hivemind group (the 5 people you last completed it with) and the final ritual is what establishes the link. Each player in a said group increases the mount's speed by 10% (Joined Hivemind). If you completed the final puzzle with a random group, you will need to complete it again with a different group for the speed bonus.

      Well, that didn't take long! It seems you can't keep the WoW secret finders in the dark for too long, as they've already broken through and managed to obtain the mount! Warcraft Secrets and the secrets discord were hard at work the past few days and today finally bore fruit as they pushed through all the colored crystal monocles and found their way to the Court of Stars.

      From there it's a whole lot of petting kittens and purring, followed by phase-shifting platforms to navigate, and then the goal itself:

      While the very end of the guide hasn't been updated yet, it will be very soon so head on over to Warcraft Secrets and check out the full guide, and you might be riding this crazy thing soon as well.
      And, of course, congratulations to everyone that helped out in the endeavor, it was an amazing performance by all involved!

      New hotfixes and this time around there's a whooole lot of dungeon changes to non-boss enemies as well as a tragic modification to Fetid Devourer's classic walk. M+ affixes were also tuned, with a Grievous nerf and a Bursting buff. The Elixir of Tongues has also made an appearance, allowing you to understand the opposing faction, and you can buy it from Lizzi Liverzapper. There's also Island Expedition fixes and a few PvP changes as well.
