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 7.0.3.22248 with item id 137564, and there is another one added in patch 7.1.5.23360 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?)

      I'm making a survival build for guardian druid for dungeons, lfr and a bit of battleground. I have Soul of the Archdruid and Dual Determination. Now I got Cinidaria, the Symbiote. Should I choose it over my existing two?

      hello, so i am following this deck - https://www.icy-veins.com/hearthstone/elemental-mage-deck and i was wondering which card i should buy next and i dont have much dust left. I need the following cards
      Primordial Glyph x2
      Pyros x1
      Arcane Keysmith x2
      Blazecaller x2
      Frost Lich Jaina x1
       
      I have 1945 dust left with the option to disenchant "Archmage Arugal" with a total of 2345, because i dont use it, nor do i know if its any good?
       
       
      I can either go with x2 Primordial as the guide says this is needed for the deck + x2 Blazecaller for late and x1 Arcane Keysmith? but then  i wont have the pyros for early or Jaina for late.
       
      Or i can go balls out buying x1 Frost lich jaina and x1 primordial glyph ? / Or just Pyros and x1 Primordial. I dont know.
       
      My last scenario is buying Frost lich jaina and x1 primordial by selling some rare cards, then use "Archmage Arugal" instead of Pyros for the time being and combo it up with AI for 2 extra cards, and hope its something good.
       
       
       
      any help is grately appreciated.

      As a retribution Pally should I equip the Insignia of the Grand Army instead of either Soul of the Highlord or Chain of Thrayn.  Could not find in the icy-veins guide about this ring.
      Thanks
