The inaugural hotfixes of patch 7.3.5 are here and there's a lot to cover: Assassination Rogues get some bugs dealt with by changing the Poison Knives trait temporarily, Shamans and Warlocks get some bug fixes, a lot of quest items have had their level requirements lowered after the level scaling, certain World Bosses now drop loot for players that were unable to loot them and more:
January 17 (source)
Rogue Assassination The Poison Knives trait has been temporarily disabled, and Poison Knives currently adds 3% damage to Deadly Poison per rank. This change will be reverted once a bug with the trait is corrected. Shaman Restoration Healing Tide Totem is now properly affected by Mastery: Deep Healing and Cumulative Upkeep. Healing Stream Totem is now properly affected by Mastery: Deep Healing. Warlock Affliction Grim Inquisitor's Regalia 2P Bonus now properly increases the duration of Unstable Affliction by 2 seconds. Dungeons and Raids
Gnomeregan Electrocutioner 6000 again drops Electrocutioner Leg for Hunters. Trial of the Champion All bosses again properly drop Champion's Seals. Items
Many quest items that had incorrectly high level requirements have been adjusted. World Quests
Fixed issues preventing Naz'ak and Ana-Mouz from dropping loot for players who have previously killed them. Quests
Significantly increased the Spinal Dust drop rate on the Ghostlands quest “Spinal Dust”. Arluin has returned to Suramar and is again willing to speak with outsiders. He was just having a bad day. 7.3.5 patch notes.
Community Manager Ythisens confirmed that world scaling impacts older raid content. The ongoing bug most notably affects Mists of Pandaria and Warlords of Draenor raids. As a result, the health of bosses within said raids will be significantly reduced in a future hotfix that Blizzard plans to implement before the weekend.
As many players have noticed, changes to how creature health is determined in Patch 7.3.5 had a meaningful impact on some older raid content. This has been particularly noticeable in Warlords of Draenor and Mists of Pandaria raids. We’ve been discussing this topic constantly since the first threads popped up after the patch.
We want to be clear: our intention was never to greatly increase the difficulty of soloing old raid content for transmog or mount runs, but a side effect of the creature health tuning we did for leveling players. We’re currently working on a fix that will significantly reduce the health of Warlords and Mists raid bosses.
Thank you for all of your feedback and discussion on this issue. We’re sorry for the frustration, and we’re working to have you all back in there beating down those old raid bosses as soon as possible (hopefully before the weekend).
The release date of Patch 7.3.5 draws close and our content hub contains all necessary information to guide you through it.
The latest information about Legion's final content patch.
Patch 7.3.5 is Legion's last content patch. The most prominent features are world scaling, Ulduar Timewalking and the Seething Shore battleground.
Update: (January 17)
Patch 7.3.5 is now live in all regions and the first bugs started to emerge. World scaling crippled soloing old content and Blizzard is currently working to fix the issue. We also reported about Orb of Deception transforming Pandaren into Allied Races characters. At this time we don't know if that's intended, but expect a round of hotfixes soon! We also compiled a list of undocumented changes in 7.3.5 that can be found below.
Black Qiraji Battle Tank Model Update
Scarab Lords rejoice! The Black Qiraji Resonating Crystal mount received a new model.
Legion Epilogue Cinematics
Two new cinematics are available to all players that start the new quest line in Silithus.
A list of undocumented changes that were omitted from the official 7.3.5 patch notes.
Uuna Secret Scenario Hunt
WoW Secrets Community Finding Discord is currently solving a mystery involving Uuna. Her drop rate has been significantly increased and Blizzard added a scenario for her in Patch 7.3.5.
Update: (January 15)
Patch 7.3.5 goes live this week. Here are the official patch notes.
Patch 7.3.5 Release Date Speculation
Ruby Qiraji Resonating Crystal and Sapphire Qiraji Resonating Crystal are new Qiraji mounts that have been added to the game in Patch 7.3.5. They will be available only during Call of the Scarab micro-holiday. Call of the Scarab is scheduled for January 21, 2018, so Patch 7.3.5 should go live before the event.
Possible Release Dates
Extended maintenance is scheduled for this week. We'll update this hub with additional information as they become available (official patch notes, background download, etc.)
January 2 January 9 January 16 New Qiraji Mounts (Call of the Scarab Micro-Holiday)
Patch 7.3.5 contains files for Allied Races, giving Blizzard the opportunity to enable them at any time after the patch goes live. During PTR testing, we looked at unlock requirements, special Heritage Armor, racials, tabards, and unlock scenarios. Four Allied Races will be available before Battle for Azeroth launches. Dark Iron Dwarves and Zandalari Trolls are gated behind the new expansion's campaign. We still have no information about their class options, but in a Q/A, Blizzard mentioned they are exploring the option to allow Dark Iron Dwarves to be Death Knights and Zandalari Trolls will be able to roll Druids.
You must purchase Battle for Azeroth and have an existing character of at least level 110 on the destination realm of your Allied Race character. Allied Races are also gated behind reputation and various achievements. All requirements are account-wide.
Level up an Allied Race character from 20 to 110 and unlock special account-wide armor that's not restricted by type.
Highmountain Tauren Druid Forms
Highmountain Tauren have unique Druid forms. In our preview, we looked at their travel, cat, bear and flight forms!
Four new racial mounts have been added for Allied Races. Check them out!
Explore new Racial abilities and passives available to Allied Races!

Flying Changes in Patch 7.3.5
You can now fly in Eastern Kingdoms, Kalimdor, Pandaria, Northrend and Deepholm just by purchasing Expert Riding.
Legendary Items in Patch 7.3.5

The devs also posted additional clarifications for the Purified Titan Essence token.

Allied Races & Uuna Scenarios
A preview of Fate's Veil, Forge of Aeons and other zones added in Patch 7.3.5.
Faction embassies have been added to Orgrimmar and Stormwind. They serve for recruiting Allied Races; almost all faction leaders can be found there. Additionally, Baine Bloodhoof, Saurfang, Trade Prince Gallywix and Nathanos all received new models.
Faction Embassies Preview #2
Our second preview focuses on changes to embassies throughout 7.3.5 testing.
Nightborne Hub (Uninstanced Nighthold)
The uninstanced version of the Nighthold has been updated with new NPCs and portals. Pandaren are teaching the Nightborne the way of the Monk and more!
Both factions have established base camps in Silithus. Will the price of victory be the very lifeblood of Azeroth?
Ogmot the Mad Foreshadowing Riddles
Ogmot the Mad is a new rare mob that can be found in Silithus. He drops Journal of Ogmot the Mad, where we learn how eager he is to become the vessel of the Old Gods. The journal has ten pages and covers interesting events.
Seething Shore Battleground
The new battleground is located off the coast of Silithus. It's a resource battle and both factions need to collect Azerite nodes to claim victory.
Trial of Style Season 2 Rewards
A couple of new items and rewards have been added to the Trial of Style micro-holiday. New sets cost Trial of Style Tokens.
Ulduar is the second Timewalking raid, available during Wrath Timewalking. Defeating Algalon now rewards both titles (Observed) and completing the Ulduar raid achievements both mounts (Glory of the Ulduar Raider). There are probably no plans to introduce a transmoggable Val'anyr, Hammer of Ancient Kings and the raid now has a single difficulty.
Vicious War Fox Mount
The PvP mount datamined back in Patch 7.3 is finally available for 1 Vicious Saddle.
A highly anticipated feature of 7.3.5 is the introduction of zone scaling. Zones have level caps, difficulty and quest rewards scale with your level. At level 58, you can choose between Outland or Northrend, at level 80 it becomes a choice between Cataclysm zones & Pandaria. Find out more about zone scaling below!
In addition to zone scaling, all zones now have chapters and completing a fixed number of quests is no longer required for Loremaster achievements.
It seems each patch brings with it a new secret for players to explore, and 7.3.5 is no different. This week's patch brought with it a series of discoverable tidbits based around NPC/pet Uuna, including a whole scenario that was datamined. Since all of this is predicated on the fact that you need to have said non-combat pet, Senior Game Designer and secrets guru at Blizzard, Jeremy Feasel, today announced increased drop rates:
She drops from rare elite The Many-Faced Devourer, who is similar to the Shackled Ur'zul mount that itself caused some controversy when announced, since it is "Formed from the tormented bodies and souls of fallen members of the Army of the Light, the Ur'zul is both fascinating and horrifying." After saving Uuna's ghost from a disturbing fate, we can now interact with her in several ways, as the Secrets Discord has found out, from emoting at her to being in specific places in order to trigger some of the datamined dialogue. The theme of the event chain is convincing Uuna to not move on to the afterlife by showing her around Azeroth and eventually unlocking the scenario where we presumably get to save and possibly revive her.
Here are some images of the scenario itself, called "The Dark Place", that we already covered when looking at some of the new zones coming in 7.3.5:
Good luck to everyone trying to solve this one, and now that the drop rate has increased let's hope more join in the quest!
