So those corrupted essence will drop in nighthold?

You couldn't finish Into the Nighthold & The Nighthold: Delusions of Grandeur before Nighhold opened, so the base appearance would still be locked and as a consequence, you weren't able to use the appearance granted from killing world bosses (Unleashed MonstrositiesUnleashed Monstrosities) either.

      We have some more hotfixes, featuring a Pala legendary, Sludgefist and plenty of Maw fixes!
      January 27 (source)
      Classes
      Paladin Reign of Endless Kings (Legendary Effect) cooldown will no longer be reset when the Paladin uses Divine Shield. Covenants
      Venthyr The Thrill Seeker (Nadjia Soulbind) buff can no longer be removed by right clicking the effect’s icon. Her appetite for danger will not be deterred. Dungeons and Raids
      Castle Nathria Sludgefist Protection Paladins blocking Giant Fists should now trigger the damage component of Holy Shield (Talent). The Maw
      Fixed an issue where Souls would not release from their Stone Prison if a player’s pet deals the final blow. Druids can now shapeshift out of the slow effect from Ghastly Willbreaker’s Shatter Resolve. Fixed an issue where Eye of the Jailer: Soul Surge’s ground visual effect was not visible when Projected Textures is disabled in the System Settings menu. Fixed an issue where Shadehounds outside of the Hunt: Shadehounds had tooltips and highlighting indicating that they are part of the hunt.

      Chaoswithinx cleared Torghast's Upper Reaches Layer 8 under 5 minutes and shared a video of their clear.
      The player started speed-running Torghast and managed to find out some crazy strategies, which they used to clear Layer 8 in 4 minutes and 56 seconds with a Marksmanship Hunter. Congrats on the run!

      While advertising boost sales in the chat channels is not against ToS, it is very annoying and by now comprises the majority of all chat that we see in the game. This is without even mentioning the Group Finder spam, which IS against ToS, is constantly being reported, but it's still there, clogging everything up and making legitimate runs harder to find (but has gotten a little better since the ban).
      Luckily there's some solutions, none of them perfect, that can help out.
      Chat Channel Spam Solutions
      There's a very new addon by rowaasr13 called SR13-AntiSpam, which works on the chat channels and using pattern recognition:
      Then there's EasyFilter, which has a lot of advanced filtering options, but hasn't been updated in quite a while (but still works).
      Group Finder
      LFGSpamFilter is a relatively simple one as well and also offers very simple reporting options.
      The Premade Groups Filter addon may not have been made with this purpose in mind, but it helps! The issue is there's a lot of input needed from the player, as you'll have to enter the filters yourselves, and the sellers tend to use non-standard wording so not everything can be filtered out. You can check out some more details on how to use it here, or try some simple filters like this one suggested by chymmi:
      Bad Boy
      We've talked about this one before and it covers both above categories, is an excellent all-rounder with its Group Finder and chat channel coverage, but it's also been known to miss a lot of entries. But it's definitely worth having, as it's the least fuss and gets at least some stuff out of the way.
       
      The only ultimate solution is to install most/all of these and hope they can clean things up enough to make it tolerable, although it seems unlikely we can get rid of all of it, as boosting is a part of WoW now and isn't going anywhere, and whenever there's real money to be made, you can be sure people will push way too far and not go away any time soon.

      Here we are in Castle Nathria week 7! Things have stabilized after the tuning pass from two weeks ago and we can get a proper look at the situation in the raid, as the headline is Feral climbing up very high! So we'll be taking a look at the spec, as our class guide writer talks about it and we'll also check out Elemental.
      The hardly played specs for this week are the usual suspects, as Survival leads the pack with 132 logs and only Assassination is anywhere close to as low, with 275, as the other not-so-much-played hover in the 600-900 range, as Frost DK, Demonology and Arcane also didn't get much Mythic play. For comparison, the most played specs (Marksmanship and Fire) have 57,000 and 45,000 logs.
      In the actual rankings we can see that Fire has surpassed Windwalker, as Feral and Arcane jumped a whole lot as well (although considering the low number of logs, that might just be an anomaly)!

      95th percentile Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.

      All percentiles Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      Feral Druid by Wordup:
      Elemental Shaman by Stormy:

      And finally, let's take a look at the Heroic data as well, as there are a lot more logs present there and while the very top looks somewhat similar to Mythic, the rest is pretty jumbled.

      As always, if you want even more info on a spec, you can check out our class guides here.

      With the second potency conduits unlocked for many companions, the options have also opened up significantly and players are now much more likely to want to swap their Soulbind than before.
      Luckily, while you still have to be at a Sanctum Forge to change your Conduits, you can actually switch your Soulbinds in any resting area! Whether it's the main Torghast hall, any random inn or similar, you can swap away at your leisure! You can even swap it at the Torghast vendors or with the Kyrian Steward!
      You just head to your Covenant screen (next to your minimap) and select your current Soulbind to access the menu:

      You can also select different trees on this screen, and while you still can't change the specific Conduits, you can still swap them around a little on your pre-set trees, which could help (a little) with the same Soulbind for off-spec problem.

      An even easier way to swap is if you're changing spec, if you have a different Soulbind on the different spec, it'll automatically switch to it as well.
      While a lot of you may have known this already, hopefully it will help out at least a few players and avoid some Sanctum return-trips.
