Well, we've finally received word from Blizzard on the recent rumor on whether the Illidan quest chain (with its 80 Soul Fragments and all) is related to the legendary upgrade mechanic coming in 7.1.5 and Nighthold, and it was only a rumor after all!

As mentioned, it isn't clear how this all got started, but it seems that the quest being missing from the PTR was enough to trigger some speculation and the Illidan chain connection somehow became the front-runner in the rumor olympics.

Hopefully not too many players frantically did the quest line on many characters due to the rumor, but hey, at least there's some 870+ loot at the end of it if you did.

I'm kinda glad the rumor got started. I thought that little quest line was just going to drag me through tons of annoying little "go here and talk to naaru" quests. Didn't realise there was this big quest with a reward at the end.

Even if the Legendary upgrade isn't tied to this quest, it still gives me something to do.

Please don't say "it's not clear how this all got started". It all started with this huge thread on mmo-c which was reposted everywhere after that - on the official forums (and also became a big thread), then  you posted it on icy-veins too and ofcourse, it was posted on every place wow-related on the internet: other websites, Reddit, social media, youtube channels and so on. Blizz didn't bothered to reply until now, sadly. So really, how this all got started? The answer is simple, the people responsible for "how it all got started" are the people who spread the unverified/false rumors in the first place.

I meant it as it's not clear who got the idea to randomly choose the Illidan quest line as being connected to the legendary thing. It seems just random. But you are right about other sites and us reporting on it making it bigger than it was,. As for me I was basically posting about the discussion that existed, which was already getting traction in the community at the time (a lot of tweets asking about it etc). I was aware there were no firm links to prove there was a connection (but it may not have come across as such in the article and people usually tend to either just read headlines or glance over an article's text, so I take some responsibility for it as well).

I kinda saw it as one of those "even if this isn't true we should say how shit it is JUST IN CASE it might be" things.

Even though I am almost done with this, I am glad for others that they don't have to grind through this for the upgrade.  The less grinding the better.

Speaking of Legendaries though, I hope we can get some kind of catch-up for the equip limit at some point.

I'm just getting the ability to wear two in a week, it'll be a pretty painful wait for any newer 110s at this point.

Once they start adding more things that let you wear more legendaries at once, or maybe if they increased the baseline limit from 1 to 2 or something, that may help. Or at least lowering the time it takes for order hall advancements to complete :p

You mean the legendary upgrade? It'll just be gathering items from Nighthold and when you have enough you complete the quest and get the item that can upgrade.

Actually, Blizz said yesterday that they will be reducing order hall research duration in 7.1.5. They didn't say by how much, but presumably it'll be at least half.

I wouldn't be able to tell the exact time, but I had roughly 5 or 6 days left on my Legends of the Wild and it was completed when I logged on just now. :p

It's truly amazing how quickly people take a tiny rumour and turn it into something that causes so much trouble!

I feel like this managed to escalate faster than even Ron Burgundy could imagine :p

      Redditor Vorsa believes to have found the potential location of N'Zoth's prison in Battle for Azeroth by studying the maps!
      It's kind of an open secret that there will be moderate to heavy Old God involvement in the plot of Battle for Azeroth, potentially even later being revealed as the spark for the renewed Alliance/Horde animosity. N'Zoth and the Void Lords were expected to be the next expansion after Legion for quite a while, but with BfA it seems like we're either getting a mixed bag with PvP focus and Old Gods, or, which I think is more likely, BfA will be the bridge expansion between us fighting the Legion and then full on fighting the Void Lords in the next one.
      However, redditor Vorsa has delved into some old maps and thinks he found the potential location of N'Zoth's prison/Ny'alotha on the Battle for Azeroth map. It makes perfect sense if we'll be getting to see the old god/his city in BfA, as it's positioned smack down in the middle between Zandalar and Kul Tiras:

      So, is Ny'lotha going to be BfA's Argus type final patch? Is it going to bridge over into a full-on Old God/Void Lord expansion or will be dealing with N'Zoth himself directly in BfA? Will the whole Horde/Alliance scuffle turn out to be a complete Old God manipulation?
      What do you guys think?

      In order to improve the AoE performance of Shadow Priests in short duration multitarget situations, changes are planned for the class with next week's maintenance.
      Blizzard (Source)
      With the next weekly maintenance, we'll be shifting around some of Shadow Priests' damage sources with the goal of improving their AOE damage performance in short-duration multitarget situations - namely dungeon trash packs.

      The nature and lifetime of dungeon trash packs makes it hard for Shadow Priests to ramp up to their full damage potential as part of their rotation. These changes should improve that situation, with a mostly neutral effect for overall performance in longer-duration raid fights.  Void Eruption No longer deals a separate damage event for each of your Shadow Word: Pain or Vampiric Touch on each target. Instead, deals a single damage event to all targets that have EITHER your Shadow Word: Pain or Vampiric Touch. Void Eruption damage increased by 700% Shadow Crash Cooldown reduced to 20 sec. (down from 30 sec) Insanity generation increased to 20. (up from 15) Missile speed increased by 60%. Mind Sear (Passive) Damage increased by 50%. Heart of the Void (Legendary) Increases Void Eruption’s damage by 75% (down from 300%) and heals you for 25% (down from 40%) of the damage done. Developers Note: This is compensation for the Void Eruption buff. The overall effect is mostly neutral. Shadow Word: Pain/Vampiric Touch Damage reduced by 4%. Developers Note: This is compensation for the Void Eruption buff in extended fights.

      World of Warcraft is currently on discount and redditor Gankeros pointed out an interesting fact; a level 100 boost costs just $25 and that's not the only thing!
      Level 100 Boost for $25
      Up to 8 World of Warcraft licenses can be attached to a single Battle.net account. The best thing is that the level 100 boost is account-wide, so after you activate the secondary game license, you can use the level 100 boost on your main (primary) license.
      Go to Account Management and under "Game Accounts", navigate to World of Warcraft and select the "Play for free" option to create a new World of Warcraft license. You should be then offered a WoW bundle for $25 / 25 EUR.
      Other Benefits of 2 World of Warcraft Accounts
      The standard Battle Chest comes with 30 days of game time and Black Friday is the ideal time to buy another WoW copy in case you've ever wanted to try out multiboxing. ISBoxer should be your go-to multiboxing software for World of Warcraft. They even offer a trial and it's really easy to set up. Don't forget to recruit yourself before doing any of this!
      If you don't need Legion, it's still good to least buy the Battle Chest for gold making. The first account is obviously your main and the second can be used for sniping. It gets even better if you have two monitors and you log in simultaneously on both accounts. Sniping is well worth it and the account will pay for itself in the long run. What exactly is sniping? The process of constantly checking the last page of the Auction House for cheap deals using preset filters. The main issue with a single license is that you can't be logged in on two characters at the same time. With two accounts, you can have one constantly sniping the Auction House, while you're playing your main.

      Did you miss any matches played at BlizzCon 2017? No problem! Blizzard uploaded a recap video of the WoW Arena World Championship with all important highlights.
      Congratulations to this year's world champions - team ABC! For more BlizzCon coverage check out our BlizzCon 2017 content hub.

      Miss any matches? Forget the final? Wonder who won? Look no further! We have all the action from the Arena World Championship world finals at BlizzCon 2017 right here.
      WANT THE TL;DR? WATCH THE RECAP VIDEO
      HOW CHAMPIONS ARE MADE
      In the opening week, ten teams descended on Anaheim in the run-up to the finals, with two teams eliminated on day one.
      Panda Global took down Rockets Eclipse with relative ease, to be met by defending world champions Method: Triforce. Panda Global were on fire, with the fever-pitch energy of the crowd fanning the flames. They beat the champions 3-1 in the semi-final to win their place in the final.
      EU VS NA
      Across the bracket, the top-seeded North America team—Method Synergy—faced Europe’s second seeded team, ABC. ABC’s tried and tested formula of Alec on Mage and Niksi on Rogue, seen the previous year, worked like a charm taking down NA’s #1 team 3-2.
      ABC EASY AS 123…4
      The finals in 2017 were once again NA vs EU. The comeback kids on Panda Global looked a little shaky and struggled to hold form, testing the limits of their passionate fans’ patience and creating a tense, exciting atmosphere throughout the arena. Sensing victory, ABC took full control; beating Panda Global in a nail-biting set of games 4-0—earning them their rightful place in World of Warcraft Arena history.
      CONGRATULATIONS TO ABC: WORLD CHAMPIONS!
