All the details and answered questions that weren't covered in the patch notes, straight from the devs.

Update: One more tweet to add to the pile, regarding when exactly those shiny new legendaries will drop and at what ilev:

7.2.5 is going live tomorrow in the US, Wednesday for EU, and while we've covered the official patch notes, PvP additions and have our own in-depth survival guide to get you ready for everything the patch has to offer, there have been a lot of explanations for the various features from the devs on twitter, so we thought we'd pile them all up in one handy place.

First off, the maintenance will be a big one, as per all patch releases, with at least 8 hours of downtime.

Then we have the clarification that Emissary quests "should not" be affected by the patch, so no resets or a bunch of new ones coming tomorrow.

A great reminder about when the new higher Mythic+ rewards will kick in:

As usual, most of the questions were about Ahead of the Curve: Gul'danAhead of the Curve: Gul'dan and Cutting Edge: Gul'danCutting Edge: Gul'dan, and we got yet more confirmation that you can still get them until Tomb opens (on June 20th/21st). And in other Gul'dan news, with the nerf to NH tier sets and the 7.2.5 class changes arriving, some people worried it would make the raid more difficult when the patch hits, but there will be adjustments to Gul'dan's difficulty so no one suddenly has a harder time after tomorrow's changes.

On bonus rolls in ToS:

The new 7.2.5 legendaries will not be obtainable from relinquished tokens and the tokens themselves will not get an ilevel bump, so there's no reason to hoard them.

And then there was the long standing question of the new Legendary Rings, and the hope they might be quest rewards and not random drops, but alas it wasn't to be:

And that's about it, for any other details and info on tomorrow's patch, check our survival guide.

im so sad about the rings, they were so interesting, they all talked about your order hall and were so cool, and it would have been amazing if you got them from the final order hall quest, and with that could equip them as you wish, or a third legendary, but nope, just more random legendaries

100% completely agreed.  I think it's stupid on Blizzard's part to put in a very specific type of legendary that greatly impacts the way the class will be played and then make it only obtainable through the ungodly fail RNG legendary drop system.  But then again, wow is turning into diablo 3 so pretty soon it'll be legendaries everywhere and possibly even set legendaries /sarcasm...

But I think it should be a questline similar to the order hall campaign or even the broken shore/suramar questlines.  I mean having that legendary to them may not make or break a build but it will impact where players stand on the charts especially when it comes to high level raiding.   I.E. two havoc demon hunters with all BiS gear from M NH but one has the talent ring, and the other has anger of the half giants.  Not only will the one with the talent ring have the same build as the other DH but they will also get their choice of bloodlet or chaos cleave which will also increase their chaos strike damage.  The one with the talent ring will more than likely pull ahead depending on demon's blade procs (another thing I'm super salty about).

More and more legendaries = less value of the fact that they are legendaries.

 

Ok rant over...

like the legendary ring SCREAMS *Comes from order hall campaign* 

the names are the titles we get from our class hall

and it talks about the class hall, plus these are so unique, all rings, all talents, all classes like wtf!?

this would have been amazing, complete the final quest, this way people with bad RNG can get this, or it is a garunteed 1 legendary for alts

 

also this would be so cool to have as a third legendary you can just equip, cause really we did not get a "legendary" this expansion

just orange epics

Realistically, it's not all that unfair given how long Legion has been out for. If you'd been playing pretty consistently you'd have quite a fair amount of legendaries for your main spec by now.

A lot of people already have all the legendaries for their main spec, and with each class/spec only getting two new legendaries for this whole patch it shouldn't take too long to have the new ones. Obviously it's a pain for those rerolling or starting late but if you consistently do everything to build up your bad luck protection every week, it won't take long for them to drop.

I am a little miffed that the rings aren't a 3rd legendary or from an insane questline like balance of power though, that would've been a fantastic opportunity to continue on!

Too many legendaries. Once you get BiS it's pointless.

I can't really say that it's pointless.  Some do have some really good niche usefulness.  I used the Prydaz shield neck and the retribution 'shield of vengeance' bracers to complete the artifact challenge.  Maybe not necessary but I did use them and was glad i had them. 

Maybe never use them again?  maybe.  But I'm glad they were there.

Given the unreliable (can't bank on any specific one dropping) drop rate and the increased competition for drops given you've added more items to the loot table, it just seems like they are going hog wild over legendaries for no real reason.

      A new week with new chances for beta keys!
      It's a new week and the perfect opportunity to give out a new batch of beta keys for Battle for Azeroth! This week, we're going to be putting multiple contests into certain news posts that discuss something WoW-related. Each post will act as a separate contest that users can enter, with a total of 4 going live on the forums and an additional 1 on Twitter.
      We understand that it can be tough to keep track of which contest is where, so this post will act as a homepage for the upcoming contests. You can check back here to see exactly which contests are live, what you have to do to enter and how many keys are being given away.
      Please note that you cannot enter any contests on this post directly; you will need to follow the link to the contest and enter there.
      Here is the list of this week's contests:
      [FORUM] Giveaway 1 - [Closed] All winners for G1 have been contacted by PM. [FORUM] Giveaway 2 - [Closed] All winners for G2 have been contacted by PM. [FORUM] Giveaway 3 [Closed] Winners will be contacted for G3 shortly. [FORUM] Giveaway 4 - [Live] Giveaway ends when poll ends. Vote in poll for chance to win.  Winners chosen at random. [FORUM] Will go live 25/06 While the giveaway-specific rules are listed above, we also have a general set of rules that apply to every giveaway. You can find them listed here.
      We wish any entrants the best of luck in each giveaway they enter and hope that we'll see many of you enjoying the beta shortly after! For any questions you might have about this post or the giveaways, you can ask them in this thread and I will do my best to answer them promptly.

      So, we have another 25 beta keys to share with our community and we thought we'd go a little historical this time around, focusing on the raiding aspect of WoW. Since we do raid race coverage here at Icy Veins and have plenty of top raiders in our guide writing ranks, it only seems apt for us to try and find out which guild our community thinks was the best of all time.
      Personally, I'm clearly biased, as I used to play in Nihilum, who were at the very top for a while there at the start of WoW, but don't worry, all you have to do is actually vote and you'll be eligible for a key, there's no actual "correct" answer and we've also provided an option for those of you who don't know any of these guilds. And if you want to check some stats on the various guilds, just so you can get it right, you can head on over to Method's World Fist Timeline.
      So, let's see who comes out on top, and if you don't have a strong opinion on the matter, just go for the last poll answer! You can also check out out main giveaway thread as there will be one more this week or you can just keep an eye out on the frontpage!

      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.
