In Patch 7.3, the Artifact Knowledge cap was increased back to level 50 and you no longer need to head back to your Order Hall for research.

Instead, you will automatically gain 1 AK level each week and all characters will start with Artifact Knowledge Level 41 when Patch 7.3 goes live. The focus in 7.3 shifts to the Netherlight Crucible and relic customization (Insignia of the Grand ArmyInsignia of the Grand Army).

The multipliers are the same as they were when AK Level 50 was introduced back in 7.2's Build 23657.

Artifact Knowledge Level Multiplier
41 5,200,000%
42 6,760,000%
43 8,790,000%
44 11,430,000%
45 14,860,000%
46 19,320,000%
47 25,120,000%
48 32,660,000%
49 42,460,000%
50 55,200,000%

If we can get to 50 now, is it possible we will see more traits? People might be able to get every rank of Concordance now.

I doubt that when there will be relic talents.

I'm not sure what's meant by "relic talents", it is confirmed that you can now "customize" relics at an object called the Netherlight Crucible, what this entails specifically is unknown but it is likely that you can simply alter what traits it buffs. There are "crafting" materials for the Crucible called "Essence of Shadow" and "Essence of Light", likely used to fuel these relic "customizations". There's even a Legendary ring introduced in 7.3 that will increase the amount of those Essences you get by 50%.

 

This is - as far as I know - all the information we have regarding this new Netherlight Crucible feature.

 

To debunk what Stan said, there's actually a string in the ptr data that says:

Quote

ARTIFACT_RELIC_TALENT_AVAILABLE

A new trait is available at the Netherlight Crucible.

Rank 50 is simply 10x the amount of AP as rank 40. The AP elite mission token would only give you 1.25 billion AP, rather then the current 125 million. You need 200 TRILLION AP to get THE last trait - Not the entirety of Concordance, but the last trait itself. Thus, the AP elite mission token gives you .01% of the AP you need towards the last trait of Concordance. The entirety of Concordance is, what was it, 800ish trillion?

 

I think the figures was that even with rank 50, you would need several years in order to reach 50/50 Concordance. 30/50 is a more realistic goal with AK 50 though.

I don't mean to be Mrs Misery but, as someone with a lot of alts who has had to change my playstyle to keep up with the content, doesn't this  (lvl 41 AP instantly) make all the previous effort meaningless? I'm wishing I had just got mine to lvl 110 and left them to be honest. 

Thank you for all the patch notes etc. Very, very useful.

I mean, the game has been out for a year. I don't think raising AK has been useless. This is the same as saying that you might as well level and never do any raids or dungeons, because you can wait 10-14 months and use the end of expansion catch-up mechanic with gear.

      With a fair amount of game adaptations heading over to Netflix in TV show form, the most recent and significant being the Witcher, Str1der has taken it upon himself to make a trailer for what a World of Warcraft show might look like. With the Warcraft movie not having done so well and having somewhat deviated from the original lore (although, so has the game itself at this point), it would really be a nice thing to see all the ancillary content featured in novels and comics etc. brought together in TV show format.
      The trailer is pretty well put together, however the choice of the song "Human" is clearly Alliance-favoritism and wholly inappropriate, therefore we all need to boycott it!!11 (For those of you that are sensitive to the faction allegiances, well, first of all, what's wrong with you, and second, that was a joke.)
      My personal favorite is when Illidan shows up and the song goes "some people have real problems", which is perhaps one of the most accurate song to scene pairings in the history of trailers.
      So, what do you think of the trailer and the idea of a Netflix WoW show? Should it focus on present day Azeroth and follow the expansions to give us a better understanding of the characters we interact with, or would you prefer it to start from the very beginning and eventually catch up?

      World of Warcraft's third expansion was released on this day 8 years ago.
      Deathwing transformed Azeroth forever as we know it. In Cataclysm, the whole world burned under the shadow of his wings and the expansion went live on December 7, 2010.
      Patch 4.1: Rise of the Zandalari
      The first major content patch of the expansion was released on April 26, 2011 and brought the reopening of Zul'Aman and Zul'Gurub. While Amani War Bear was removed from the game, players can still obtain a recolor of the mount (Amani Battle Bear) to this day.
      Patch 4.2: Rage of the Firelands
      The second Cataclysm patch went live on June 28, 2011 and included Firelands, a new raid with Ragnaros as the final boss, a new daily quest hub (Molten Front) and Dungeon Journal. Interesting loot from the Firelands includes Smoldering Egg of Millagazor that has a small chance to drop from Heroic Ragnaros, Flametalon of Alysrazor which drops from Alysrazor and Fandral's Flamescythe from Staghelm that gives Druid cats a fiery appearance.
      Patch 4.3: Hour of Twilight
      The final major content patch went live on November 29, 2011. Three new 5-player dungeons were released (Hour of Twilight, End Time, Well of Eternity). In terms of system updates, Raid Finder, Void Storage and Transmogrification were added to the game. The final raid Dragon Soul featured Deathwing as the final boss. Interesting drops include Reins of the Blazing Drake, Life-Binder's Handmaiden off Deathwing and Experiment 12-B from Ultraxion.
