      The Legion Companion App will serve as the main World of Warcraft mobile application from July 11 and onwards to Battle for Azeroth.
      After the retirement of the Remote Auction House, it is time to bid farewell to the WoW Mobile Armory App as well. Players will have a single mobile application, since the Legion Companion App will be converted into a new WoW Companion App, which will contain new features from Battle for Azeroth as well as favourite features from the original application (probably the guild chat).
      We just hope this application maintains its light size, unlike the Hearthstone game app!
      Blizzard Entertainment
      As of July 11, 2018, we will no longer be supporting the World of Warcraft Mobile Armory app. But this isn’t the end of the road, as we’re continuing to develop and improve our mobile offering for World of Warcraft.
      As a part of our commitment to providing WoW players with a living, connected experience on multiple fronts, we are transitioning away from the current World of Warcraft Mobile Armory app and will be converting the Legion Companion App into a new WoW Companion App in the future. As part of that, we’ll be incorporating many of your favorite World of Warcraft Armory app features along with features for Battle for Azeroth into a new shared app for a more streamlined experience. Stay tuned for more information.

      Several redditors spotted a new entry in the beta/PTR event calendar, featuring the pre-expansion event. It's already started on the PTR and it's called the War of the Thorns, featuring conflict in Darkshore for control of Teldrassil. Now, we know how that particular "control" ends up, but hopefully the event itself won't be as fire-y!
      Also, based on the length of the event, it seems most likely we'll be seeing it come up on live servers on or around July 17th, if we assume it will last until the expansion launch itself, so we have a little over three and a half weeks until we see the pre-expansion event and the pre-patch itself as well! It's a little unclear if the Battle for Lordaeron will be part of the pre-patch or will be available at launch, so the date might actually be a little earlier since it seems logical that the events won't overlap, as one is caused by the other. so another possible date would be July 10th.

      Also, check out what you should do before the pre-patch goes live, as there are achievements to be had that will be removed.

      A little bit before the end of Legion, it's time to determine once and for all who's the best Mythic+ team worldwide in the second installment of the Mythic Dungeon Invitational!
      The action begins tomorrow at 09:00 am PDT and will continue on for the entire weekend. You can tune in on the official Warcraft Twitch channel to watch the final showdown between the eight finalists. The team compositions aren't known yet, so it's not sure if any changes have been made for the grand finals. Still, let's find out a bit more about them!
      Representing China, we have Skyline D and Sun Sky, both of whom unfortunately couldn't fly to Columbus, Ohio, so they will be playing from their home country. Being the first region to start the Group Stage, China was the one to look for. Skyline D went undefeated with their 3-melee DPS composition and they displayed various tactics that were subsequently copied from teams from other regions. Sun Sky showed what a beast Arcane Mage is in Black Rook Hold, prompting Blizzard to finally hotfix the buff Mages could spellsteal in that dungeon.
      In the Americas, we see crowd favourites and record setters Method NA, as well as Team Omegasniped. Even though they don't have their Demon Hunter tank Shakib, Method NA is still in it to win it. Earlier this year, Starym sat down with this all-star team in a two-part interview (Part 1 + Part 2)! Team Omegasniped also has some well known players, who are pretty versatile in the class they play with depending on the dungeon.
      Europe is my region, so I am excited to see one of our two teams be victorious. Kjell's Angels, the only finalist team with a Balance Druid (Kjell), were victorious in the European Group Stage. Team PogChamp also shined through their regionals and they were subsequently picked up by Method. Method PogChamp is a team with popular streamers, two caster DPS and Drjay is ready to set things on fire!
      Lastly, from the APAC region we have the defending champions from the previous MDI, Free Marsy. Even though they were considered an outsider last year, they finished victorious and they had a pretty convincing performance in the Group Stage. Unfortunately, for the Global finals they've had to sub their healer. The other APAC team is Gulch Trotters, who are also a force to be reckoned with.
      The rules are slightly different from the Group Stage; we have covered them in this article. Essentially, we will see higher keys (23 to 25), affixes locked per map with Skittish making a return, greater variation of maps and an increase of the Artifact weapon's item level to 995. The rules for remakes, which plagued the Group Stage, are much clearer and stricter now.
      May the best team win!
