...You know, I used to think the talk about Devs playing Mages was just a humor/sarcasm thing.

Can Icy Veins stop being ignorant? Mages are getting 0 buff. It's just a switch from damage aura to coefficient.

And in 1 month people will forget this was done and they will get another damage aura buff because "omg every other class has damage aura buff and fire mage is at 0!"

      A guide that focuses on gold gain "on the go", no tedious tasks required.
      All materials sell fast No need to check out crafting value vs. profit You make gold "on the way" engaging in a wide variety of activities that don't focus on gold making, such as World Quests or Glory of the Legion Hero. Blood of Sargeras
      Get Boon of the Bloodhunter. It gives a lot of extra bloods. You will notice Bloodhunter's Quarry dropping from enemies. It will contain anywhere from 1-5 Bloods of Sargeras. Engage in content that gives you a lot of bloods, the best are Mythic+0 dungeons. After having acquired enough bloods at the end of the day, visit this website to determine the most recent gold value of Blood of Sargeras. On most servers, you will get the maximum value from Potion of Prolonged Power, but we'll be focusing on raw materials. Find Illnea Bloodthorn in Dalaran. If you found which item has the most value, create a macro depending on the item you'd like to buy: /run BuyMerchantItem(1) - Order Resources Cache /run BuyMerchantItem(2) - Lean Shank /run BuyMerchantItem(3) - Fatty Bearsteak /run BuyMerchantItem(4) - Big Gamy Ribs /run BuyMerchantItem(5) - Leyblood /run BuyMerchantItem(6) - Wildfowl Egg /run BuyMerchantItem(7) - Cursed Queenfish /run BuyMerchantItem(8) - Mossgill Perch /run BuyMerchantItem(9) - Highmountain Salmon /run BuyMerchantItem(10) - Stormray /run BuyMerchantItem(11) - Runescale Koi /run BuyMerchantItem(12) - Black Barracuda /run BuyMerchantItem(13) - Aethril /run BuyMerchantItem(14) - Dreamleaf /run BuyMerchantItem(15) - Foxflower /run BuyMerchantItem(16) - Fjarnskaggl /run BuyMerchantItem(17) - Starlight Rose /run BuyMerchantItem(18) - Leystone Ore /run BuyMerchantItem(19) - Felslate /run BuyMerchantItem(20) - Stonehide Leather /run BuyMerchantItem(21) - Stormscale /run BuyMerchantItem(22) - Unbroken Claw /run BuyMerchantItem(23) - Unbroken Tooth /run BuyMerchantItem(24) - Shal'dorei Silk /run BuyMerchantItem(25) - Arkhana /run BuyMerchantItem(26) - Leylight Shard Example: I found that I will get the most value from Fjarnskaggl, So I create this macro:
      /run BuyMerchantItem(16) You can adjust the amount of stacks you want to buy, but the best is to just spam the macro until you're out of bloods if you want to deplete them all.
      Greatly synergizes with blood farming. You get a lot of gold by disenchanting everything. Don't disenchant BoE purples! Chaos Crystal is the main source of income and disenchanting epic gear has a chance to yield a Blood of Sargeras. The key is to obtain as much gear as possible from World Quests (look for quests that award purple items when doing your daily cache), Mythic+0 dungeons, LFR  and other sources. If you're doing Heroic dungeons, disenchant every rare item to get Leylight Shard. Disenchant all green gear you come across into Arkhana. Sell all crystals, shards and dust. Order Hall Missions
      To further improve your gold gain, don't forget about missions that award gold! If you're success chance is 200%, you're guaranteed to receive bonus gold. Don't forget to put everything in the Auction House.
      Closing Tips
      Mobile Armory is far more comfortable to use than the in-game Auction House. Legion Companion App can be used for Order Hall Missions. Sell all Defiled Augment Runes you get from LFR, Order Hall Missions.

      Build 23623 added five mounts that will be available from Reputation Paragon. For every 20,000 reputation gained beyond Exalted with Legion factions, you'll receive a new emissary cache that has a chance to contain one of the mounts.
      Mounts are tied to specific zone caches. No indications if they are a 100% drop though.
      Collecting 10 caches awards the Paragon of the Broken Isles achievement. You can obtain the following mounts (sorted as they appear in the video).
      Highmountain Elderhorn Wild Dreamrunner Cloudwing Hippogryph Valarjar Stormwing Leywoven Flying Carpet Highmountain Elderhorn and Wild Dreamrunner are probably only ground mounts.
      Which of the mounts do you like most?

      Mages are getting a flying disc (Archmage's Prismatic Disc) as their class mount in Patch 7.2. After talking to Archmage Kalec, you accept the quest Dispersion of the Discs and the objective is to complete a Ritual in the Eye of Eternity.
      These discs are radiating with power! It must be their proximity to one another. We must take them from here should they resonate further and cause a catastrophe in these sacred halls.

      I'll send them to the one place I know where we can reign their energies in, preventing any sort of explosion. I'm speaking of the Eye of Eternity.

      There we will be able to safely finish what Antonidas was unable to complete. Speak with me again when you're ready to leave.
