Was there ever any indication of the opposite? As far as I'm aware those were never containers. They've always worked the way they have, just that until now we haven't had a chance to really see it in action.

Druids Travel form has been nerfed(bugged?) from 200% speed to 181% speed out of combat, have yet to test in combat. We can for the time being use the Feral Affinity to get back to 196%, but this is unacceptable as a guardian druid, I need Ysera's Gift.

I am not sure why this is listed but in the official patch notes clearly have this listed although it doesnt say in half, it just says reduced.

7.1.5 Official Patch Notes

Quote

Updated Features

Artifact Knowledge and Class Hall Updates

New Bind-on-Account items are available from the Artifact Researcher in your Class Order Hall. These items can be sent to alternate characters to immediately get them to higher Artifact Knowledge levels.

For new players just reaching 110, there is a new set of repeatable quests that will allow you to immediately exchange Order Hall Resources for Artifact Knowledge up to Artifact Knowledge level 15.

The time it takes to complete Class Hall research has been reduced. A shorter time to complete Class Hall research for Tiers 3, 4, 5, and 6 will make it easier to upgrade your Class Halls on alts and new characters.

Just... What?!

I don't understand why they have added this... this is too much benefit for engineers (even if everyone can complete the quest when Mr.Robot is set on the ground) and add another way to get legendaries for the luckiest among us^^

So, I have one question, does the opening of the gift enhance the general chances of getting legendaries?

too much benefit?  maybe, but to me it seems better than level 800 engineering being absolutely useless compared to the tens of thousands of gold it takes to get there

To be fair though, Guardian Druids have used Balance Affinity since the start of the expansion, not Ysera's :D

I thought Blizzard would assign the caches a different item ID so that players would not hoard them to get 7.1.5 Legendaries instantly.

Oh yeah, I've noticed something else too. Timewalking gear is now 830 ilv base and 845 ilv warforged.

That may have been mentioned a while ago when they said that gear from dungeons would go up in level as patches were released, but it wasn't anywhere in the patch notes for 7.1.5 and isn't in this list of undocumented changes so I'm putting it out there.

Gear from Legion dungeons hasn't changed for now, or at least Dungeon Journal still shows 805/825/840.

Thank you! I have included the changes in the main post :). Also to answer the question about speeding up the Class Hall Upgrades. I have added it here, because in the official patch notes there were no numbers.

Heh, turns out the new post that clarifies how legendary upgrades work also tells us that this will actually be the case, once Nighthold comes out. :p

      Moonkin Festival is one of the newest micro-holidays added in Patch 7.2.5. The celebration takes places in Moonglade and the final reward is 5 Moonkins Hatchlings following you for 5 days.
      Overview
      A wonderful celebration of all things Moonkin is happening today in Moonglade. Stop by and see what you can learn!
      Go to Moonglade and find Makkaw. He has the "Moonkin Monitoring" quest for you and you're sent to observe three activities vital for the life of every Moonkin. You watch them dance, moonfire and sleep. When complete, you get a Moonkin Hatchling (Moonkin Hatchling) that follows you for 1 day. Then you need to loot a Moonkin Stone to be able to understand Moonkins. By talking to your hatchling you learn it's hungry.
      Collect 5 Moonberries and feed the hatchling. Once done, a second hatchling will join you and the buff is extended to 2 days. Don't waste your time searching for the berries in the Moonkin area, you'll find them in the village.

      Now you need to kill Jadefire Shadowmasters in the village and they will drop Brilliant Vial, Constellas Corruption & Moonglow Water to create a Moonkissed Antidote and administer the antidote to their friend Clookle, who can be found beneath the village. Entrance can be found in the north. He's Poisoned and petrified.

      This will spawn a fourth hatchling and they tell you to go kill Xavinox. He has around 60 million Health and can be problematic to solo for non-tank specs.

      He drops Beanie Boomie and the amount of moonkins following you for 5 days is increased to 5.

      The invulnerable bug will hopefully be eradicated after today's hotfixes, there's a lot of quest fixes and multiple artifact challenge appearances will no longer stack up on top of each other in class halls!
      April 25 (source)
      Class Halls
      Players who have unlocked multiple Challenge appearances for their Artifacts will no longer see more than one of them on top of each other in their Class Halls. Items
      Players should be able to transmogrify tabards to the appearance of the Legionfall Tabard. Butcher's Bone Apron should no longer provide a benefit that persists in unintended circumstances. Player versus Player
      Fixed a bug that was causing some players to become invulnerable in instanced PvP. The quest "Something Different" now requires 1 brawl victory (was 3 brawl completions). The quest now rewards a Soldier's Legacy Artifact Power token, 3 Marks of Honor, and a Brawler's Footlocker. Quests
      Corrine the Deceiver should now respawn as expected when killed on the quest “Cult Culling”. Fixed a bug that was causing errors opening Stolen Crates during “Arming the Army”. “Full Fel” now correctly awards quest credit. Resolved issues where some Paladins were not able to obtain the letter starting the Maximillian questline. A certain Escape Rope in a secret treasure cave is now easier to see. It’s dark in there! Previous hotfixes.

      A look at Patch 7.2's most crucial aspects for returning players and alt-friendliness - Artifact Knowledge, gearing and leveling.
      Artifact Knowledge
      Is the rate at which you gain Artifact Power. Your main goal should be to reach Artifact Knowledge Level 26 as soon as possible, because there's a significant increase in the multiplier in 7.2. If you lack Order Resources, keep in mind you can buy Order Resources Cache for Blood of Sargeras. Patch 7.2.5 added a bag with up to 4,000 Order Resources (Abundant Order Resources Cache), but we don't know what plans Blizzard has for it just yet.
      Artifact Knowledge Level 25 = 24,900% Artifact Knowledge Level 26 = 100,000% The % increase at AK Level 26 is huge, don't waste your time with World Quests or other AP content before you get it!
      Reaching Artifact Knowledge Level 1 - 25
      Knowledge is Power is a repeatable quest that can be turned in for 500 Order Resources up to Artifact Knowledge Level 25. If you have a main that has reached AK Level 25, you can buy Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I-IV for 1,000 Order Resources that can be sent to your alts to instantly reach AK Level 20. If you boost your AK Level with the research compendium to a certain level, the last 5 Artifact Knowledge Levels must be reached by repeating the Knowledge is Power (2,500 Order Resources) With AK Level cap being increased up to 50, you'll be able to buy additional compendiums At AK Level 30: Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I-V At AK Level 35: Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I-VI At AK Level 40: Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I-VII At AK Level 45: Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I-VIII At AK Level 50: Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I-IX Example: Let's assume you've got AK Level 25 on your main and can purchase a compendium that will instantly teach your alt AK Level 25 Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I-IV.  Using it will make your alt have AK 20, but the last 5 levels have to be reached, by repeating Knowledge is Power five times. Artifact Knowledge Level 25+
      At this time, you will no longer be able to continue your research You need to start and finish Assault on Broken Shore to be able to research again After you finish the Assault, the accept the "Seeking Lost Knowledge" quest at Deliverance Point Once finished, return to your Order Hall and turn in Delivering Lost Knowledge You can now continue your Artifact Knowledge Research (Discovered Lost Knowledge) and don't forget to learn AK Level 26 by consuming Empowered Elven Tome in your inventory Gear
      Another interesting aspect for returning players and alts is gear. Patch 7.2 makes gearing up super fast.
      Crafted Gear & Obliterum
      The Obliterum Forge is now available to everyone and Obliterum has never been cheaper Crafted items have ilvl 835 Obliterum can upgrade items up to ilvl 875 Dauntless Items
      Discover an item appropriate for your specialization with ilvl 850+ Can be purchased from Warmage Kath'leen for 400 Nethershards each (e.g. Dauntless Hood) you shouldn't be really spending Nethershards on them, because they drop in Demon Assault Scenarios and from all Broken Shore content (bags, caches, mobs, the Sentinax) Demon Assaults
      Check the Broken Isles map periodically for Demon Assaults. Not only are they a great source of experience, you'll receive Dauntless tokens and epic quality gear from the last boss Dungeons
      Normal dungeons drop ilvl 825+ Heroic dungeons drop ilvl 845+ Timewalking drop ilvl 855+ Mythic dungeons drop ilvl 865+ Grandiose Armor Kits
      World Quest rewards (Farseer's Grandiose Armor Kit) that instantly upgrade items from your Order Hall Set to ilvl 870. Relinquished Items
      Discovers an item appropriate for your loot specialization with an ilvl 880+ Relinquished items (e.g. Relinquished Relic) can be purchased from Thaumaturge Vashreen for 5,000 Nethershards each The items have a chance to contain a Legendary item, so if you're a freshly-leveled 110 and would like to slot target your Legendary items, Relinquished items are your safest bet World Quests
      Broken Isles World Quest rewards now scale up to ilvl 865 World Bosses
      When Nether Disruptor's up, you'll have access to Broken Shore World Bosses that drop ilvl 900+ loot. Don't forget to bring a Seal of Broken Fate for bonus rolls. Leveling
      Mostly revolves around the Armies of Legionfall reputation grind, more information can be found in our guide.
      Focus your effort to unlock flying at least on one of your characters (Broken Isles Pathfinder, Part Two) Flying's account-wide and once unlocked, you can use it on any character (even at Level 100) Flying significantly speeds up leveling
