Save Emissary Boxes for 7.2?

Just curious, do you think it will be worth it to save emissary boxes for 7.2? Especially if you only have 1 legendary for your main spec, but multiple for off spec? I feel like it might be so, because of the increased drop rate for spec-based legendaries, but I also know 7.2 is a ways away and might be missing out on items in the meantime.

Emissary Cache loot is determined when you receive the item.  Saving it will just deprive you of whatever rewards are in it.


Note that this does not apply retroactively to Emissary Bags that you may already have in your inventory when the time comes. Only new bags earned after the Nighthold is open have the chance to reward an item level 940 Legendary.

That blue post says nothing about loot being generated upon the cache being received. Plenty of people have hoarded caches from before 7.1.5 and gotten new 7.1.5 legendaries once they opened them after the patch dropped. What happened is once Nighthold came out, they changed the item IDs for caches, and the old ones remained with their old IDs, so would draw from the table which had 910 legendaries instead of 940. If you look at Wowhead, for example Nightfallen Hoard, there is the old one added in patch with item id 137564, and there is another one added in patch with item id 146751. I got a cache in-game and checked its item id and it's indeed the 146751 so it's not like it was an unused item that was datamined and never used or something.

That being said they may do the same thing again when 7.2 hits, no way to know, but considering we have no idea when 7.2 will be showing up, hoarding caches until an undetermined date in the future would really be a waste. You could end up waiting a loooooong time ;p and during that time you could get a legendary, maybe even two, or get useful gear upgrades.

(fwiw this would be trivial to test using the PTR, but I don't have it installed and I don't think it's worth the 30GB just for that, anyone with it want to try?)

      Not sure if it would be okay to start a thread like this on here...if not, feel free to remove it.
      But i was hoping we could start a thread similar to other forums so that people can get in touch with others who have the 80g challenge a friend quest so that we can get double the reward from it.

      So I just got back into playing hearthstone again, been a little over a year(still consider myself a noob), and I just got enough dust to craft a legendary. I've been playing priest a lot lately due to the shadowreaper anduin drop, and I've really been enjoying it, but can't seem to get past rank 20. Should I craft Lyra, Raza, or Velen to make that deck better, or forgo crafting a legendary and focus more on rares/epics to fill out the deck?
      I think it's a control deck but I'm not entirely sure, still new to building decks.;74:1;232:1;315:2;401:1;415:2;431:2;438:1;544:1;547:1;600:2;641:1;656:1;671:1;35240:1;49630:2;49638:1;55543:2;58722:2;62870:1;62889:1;62951:2

      2x Alleycat 1x Emerald Reaver 2x Fiery Bat 2x Fire Fly 2x Jeweled Macaw 2x Raptor Hatchling 1x Stampede 1x The Marsh Queen 2x Tracking 2x Crackling Razormaw 2x Scavenging Hyena 1x Deadly Shot 2x Kill Command 2x Stitched Tracker 1x Cult Master 2x Houndmaster 1x Tol'vir Warden 1x Tundra Rhino 1x Deathstalker Rexxar
      Here's my current take on the quest Hunter. Stitched Tracker and Build-A-Beast in my eyes have really given Hunter some good and greatly needed flexibility. The ability to create an extra Tol'vir Warden, Tundra Rhino, Hyena, or Cult Master, or any of the various 1 drops needed for the quest allow for a nice range of minions without having to worry about getting that one draw you need to combo. Build-A-Beast is such a fantastic ability and the AOE that Deathstalker Rexxar gives is a very welcome addition. While a little expensive Exploding Bloatbat + anything with charge, preferably a Boar, gives Hunter a nice suicide bomb. Alternatively Hyena + anything with Stealth is a great way to safely build up lethal, or a Stealth Rhino to consistently hurl charge raptors at your opponent's face.  

      This deck is by no means perfect, but it's a hell of a lot of fun to play in its current iteration. I'm open to any suggestions or criticisms about how to make this more viable.
