      Another relatively short batch today, we have the long awaited change to Writhing Essences, that are now a currency instead of a quest item, so the excess won't be disappearing after you upgrade a legendary anymore! There's also some ToS Sisters of the moon melee tweaks, some PvP fixes and more.
      And there's also this tweet remind you how hotfixes get implemented:
      Placeholder for tweet 877958178155094017 June 22 (source)
      Rogue Fixed a bug where Second Shuriken was not activating correctly. Dungeons and Raids
      Tomb of Sargeras Sisters of the Moon Sisters of the Moon can now be hit by melee attacks from farther away. Holiday
      Fixed a bug that prevented players from receiving credit for the quests "Torch Tossing" and "More Torch Tossing". Player versus Player
      Fixed a bug that prevented the "3v3 Weekly Quest" from properly awarding an elite gladiator item when the player had a previous week's PVP rating of 1900+. Warlock Demonic Gateway's debuff will now show the correct duration remaining when the Warlock has the Gateway Mastery honor talent. Quests
      For “Unsettled Power”, Writhing Essences now drop as a currency, instead of a quest item. Entering your Class Hall or Dalaran will convert your existing progress to the new currency. Previous hotfixes.

      We've uploaded Kil'jaeden's Defeat Cinematic to Youtube and in this article, we're looking at what happens after you defeat the last boss in the Tomb of Sargeras.

      We've put up a video guide for the Sun Darter Hatchling pet with commentary on how to solve the riddle within Caverns of Consumption. Grab the pet if you haven't already!
      Sun Darter Hatchling can be looted once per character. If you have multiple runs, you can sell it for Gold. By this time, the reagents from Auction House should be very well worth the investment, but it still depends on your server's economy.
      Several consumables are needed to complete the riddle. The vast majority can be bought in the Auction House, but some items can't so you'll need to gather them yourself.
      Written Guide
      The easiest way to reach Winterspring is by taking the Hyjal portal from your main city (Stormwind / Orgrimmar). The cave is at 57, 16 1x Major Fire Protection Potion to get through the fire wall Apply all potions below (you need to wait a few minutes to be able to apply them all) to get past the second wall 1x Major Arcane Protection Potion 1x Major Fire Protection Potion 1x Major Frost Protection Potion 1x Major Holy Protection Potion 1x Major Nature Protection Potion 1x Major Shadow Protection Potion Apply Noggenfogger Elixir until you turn into a Skeleton (bring at least 10x Noggenfogger Elixirs)  They can be bought from Sprinkle Noggenfogger in Gadgetzan (Tanaris) - the fastest way to get there is by taking the Caverns of Time portal from Dalaran's Portal Room Use a charge of Scotty's Lucky Coin from Scotty in Townlong Steppes Inside the room, you'll need to loot a Water Stone and use it to get the wet debuff (Water Stone) and pass the blue wall Drink Dire Brew from Blackrock Depths (The Grim Guzzler) to get past the Stone Watcher Go up the ramp straight to the purple wall and apply Ethereal Oil to get inside until you reach the cube At the cube, apply both Gordok Ogre Suit (from Dire Maul dungeon quest The Gordok Ogre Suit or buy it in the AH) and Winterfall Firewater (a drop from High Chief Winterfall in Winterspring) and place your hand on the cube Go back and at the "jail door", use Pygmy Oil until you're transformed into a Pygmy to get to the Wisdom Cube (it's a good idea to bring a whole stack of Pygmy Oil) At Wisdom Cube, summon Perky Pug (reward from Looking For Multitudes) and dress him up using "Little Princess" Costume purchased from Battle Pet Masters in Dalaran (Lio the Lioness - Alliance //  Serr'ah - Horde) for 1x Pet Charm (or AH) Place your hand / arm below the cube to receive the second buff and go all the way down to the final room with an Oddly-Colored egg Here, you will see a Tarnished Plaque that needs to be read before you're able to collect your pet. There are two more things to be added DO NOT JUMP straight into the water, it will instantly teleport you to the entrance of the cave. Take the path all the way down to enter water, but before that remove the Winterfall Firewater buff to be able to apply  Scroll of Intellect (crafted by Scribes) Loot your Sun Darter Hatchling and remove the scroll buff to be ported to the entrance so you can hearth out Video Guide + Walkthrough

      In today's blue posts roundup, we uncover some mysteries behind Writhing Essence, used to upgrade your Legendary items to 970 in Patch 7.2.5.
      It's intended that activation trinkets will put other activation trinkets on cooldown. (Source) Legion Season 4 Battleground-quality gear can be obliterated for Echoes of Battle. (Source) The base item level of Legion Season 4 gear remains unchanged after opening of the Tomb. (Source) Mythic+ Keystone Dungeons not awarding Writhing Essence is intended. (Source) Important: If you have more than 50 Writhing Essences while turning in the quest to upgrade your Legendary item, they will get consumed and this is intended, so don't forget to hand in the quest at 50! (Source) This is caused by limitations of how quests work. Blizzard agrees it isn't ideal and are working on possible improvements. (Source) Relinquished tokens can't drop 7.2.5 Legendary items, just old ones. (Source)
