And the other classes.

 

You know why?

 

There were no T21 changes for those classes. Takes a genius, I know. Thank me later.

      Many players are still waiting for Patch 7.3 to go live, before they complete the Mage Tower Challenge for their Artifact weapon appearance, because with increasing item level, the challenge becomes more trivial. If you have your appearance unlocked and think how good you are, you probably haven't heard of Muddymonk!
      The player wrote on reddit that he finished Mage Tower Challenges for each class / specialization - that's a total of 36 challenges. Congratulations! We're posting some screenshots and the rest can be found by visiting the link at the bottom of the article.

      You can find more screenshots here.

      Primal Obliterum can only upgrade new Patch 7.3 crafted items to item level 935. Pre-7.3 items can only be upgraded to 900 with Obliterum.
      To upgrade Obliterum into Primal Obliterum, you will need 1 Obliterum & 1 Primal Sargerite. Another Primal Sargerite will be consumed when you upgrade an item with Primal Obliterum by 5 ilvls.

      New 7.3 Crafted Gear
      Only the following items can be upgraded to 935. It doesn't matter if you craft older items after 7.3 goes live, they won't go beyond 900.

      Obliterum has been a steady gold maker during Legion, but what's the future of crafted items in Patch 7.3?
      Patch 7.3 added the following strings to the game:
      "SPELL_FAILED_CUSTOM_ERROR_345","This item requires basic Obliterum to upgrade."
      "SPELL_FAILED_CUSTOM_ERROR_346","This item requires Primal Obliterum to upgrade."
      We did some testing on PTR and old crafted pre-7.3 gear (ilvl 835/850) can be upgraded with Obliterum up to ilvl 900. You can't use Obliterum to upgrade the new 7.3 crafted items. Instead, you will need to use Primal Obliterum that can upgrade it up to ilvl 935.
      Primal Obliterum is forged by combining a new Blood of Sargeras called Primal Sargerite and good old Obliterum. Primal Sargerite can be transmuted by Alchemists (Transmute: Primal Sargerite) at the cost of 25 Bloods of Sargeras. There are various sources of Primal Sargerite (world quests, shoulder enchant etc). The item's required for many new recipes, so a person would be forced to have Alchemy and that's not a design Blizzard would choose.
      The good news is Obliterum will still be profitable in 7.3 and if you plan to sell Primal Obliterum, you will need to combine Obliterum with Primal Sargerite.
