As you may know, one of the artifact appearance recolors is locked behind the final Legion archaeology achievement, This Side UpThis Side Up, which takes 16 weeks to finish and until yesterday it was not account-wide. As players finally unlocked the achievement and then went to alts to make use of it there as well, you can imagine the less-than-great revelation provoking quite an outcry.

But luckily, within a day of complaints over it reaching reddit's frontpage a fix has appeared and the artifact appearance is now indeed account-wide! Hopefully when we finally finish Improving on HistoryImproving on History aka Balance of Power that appearance will also be available for alts.
Thanks to Feywhelps for noticing, both when it wasn't and was working!

When I saw it, I couldn't believe it would ever stay like that. I understand that Blizz likes timesinks, but if you had to do it on every character you wanted the skin on... Bit much?

I'd say so.  Like farming mounts used to be. 

It's bad enough RNGing for the Baron's mount ONCE, much less multiple times...  or Mimi's Head??

I was doing it just for the sake of completing the achievement on my main, didn't care for the appearance and was a bit disappointed because there were some characters for which I would have been interested in having the appearance, but I wasn't about to do those Archaeology quests on other characters.

Really cool if it's unlocked for all characters now, it only makes sense that it would be honestly, but it means I don't ever have to worry about it anymore.

Some of those quests were worth doing on multiple characters, but the whole thing... yeah no thanks.

Oh the humanity.  Making mounts accout wide was one of the best things Blizzard ever did for WoW.

      Australian players will need spend more money for select WoW services starting June 26. Subscription prices and NZD pricing remain unaffected.
      Blizzard (Source)
      World of Warcraft is played in many regions around the world, and we regularly conduct reviews of the prices of our games and services in all currencies. From time to time, it’s necessary to make changes to certain pricing based on a variety of factors, including global and regional market conditions. Following a careful evaluation, we wanted to provide notice that we’ll soon be adjusting the Australian dollar (AUD) prices of some of the select services available for World of Warcraft.
      The new AUD pricing, reflected in the table below, will go into effect on 26 June AEST. Subscription prices will not be affected.
      New Zealand dollar pricing will be unaffected by this price change, and players in New Zealand will continue to purchase digital game software, virtual items, subscriptions, and optional game services at the current NZD pricing.
      We know that people have a lot of options for entertainment, and we never take pricing adjustments such as this lightly. We appreciate that players choose to spend their time with World of Warcraft, and we’re committed to ensuring the game continues to provide Australian players with a great entertainment value.  
      New Price Starting 26 June -  AUD Name Change $13.50 Appearance Change $20.00 Helms $20.00 WoW Token No change Character Transfer $34.00 Race Change $34.00 Pets $13.50 Mounts $34.00 Warforged Nightmare $40.00 Pet & Mount Bundle $47.00 Faction Change $40.00 Guild Transfer $47.00 Guild Faction Change $54.00 Guild Name Change $27.00 Character Transfer & Faction Change $74.00 Character Boost $80.00 Guild Transfer & Faction Change $88.00

      The amount of Experience granted by War Mode has been decreased to 10% in Battle for Azeroth Beta Build 26871.
      War Mode
      In Battle for Azeroth, Blizzard effectively eliminates two server types: PvP and PvE. WoW will only have two realm types going forward: Normal & RP realms. Enlist in War Mode (Enlisted) and activate World PvP, increasing quest rewards by up to 10% and enabling PvP Talents in the outdoor world. Enabling War Mode grants access to PvP talents that can be used in the outdoor world (even for questing). The amount of Experience gained by enlisting in War Mode is now 10% (down from 15%). War Mode will be available in the 8.0 pre-patch.
