I knew they'd fix the holiday items very soon, so I sold the two cups that have been gathering dust in my bank since last Brewfest fairly quickly when I realized it was a thing.

In hindsight, I could potentially have sold them for way more than I actually did, but eh. Free money is free money and I don't care all that much here, in the end joke's on the people who bought them lol.

At least you got rid of them before the fix, that's the most important thing :D

I was keeping them because I wasn't sure whether I'd want to use them or not (for legitimate purposes; that was way back and I was considering using them for levelling 100-110 on a shaman alt. I figured maybe 810 ilv > 750 ilv could make up for the lack of artifact ability.)

Worked out in the end, though... could have sworn I had already bought grand expedition yak back then but turned out I hadn't, so that let me buy it really easily lol. Still, maybe I could or should have tried selling for more than 40k each, seeing how high people were listing theirs on other more populated servers, but time was ticking, didn't want to risk unsuccessful sales, and I didn't really care all that much either way.

Seeing the listings still up at 200k-1m+ on more populated servers that haven't sold, though. Joke's on them >.o

I'm sure people will still be buying them that haven't got the memo yet. There's always that pro/con of selling low and fast vs. high and slow :p

Not sure tbh. The AH clearly displays a minimum level requirement of 100, but I guess, knowing people, a lot of people can't read ;p

Exactly! Their friend Bobby told them about it and they won't check twice about buying since they've been getting obliterated by them at low levels :p

      With the new 6-month subscription transmog option becoming available today, some players have found ways to make it a little less colorful and more... ominous. Rotoyo1003 points out that two items can actually accomplish the same goal, as the Heartsbane Grimoire toy and Irradiated Undercoat item get you looking slightly more Batman-y and less Joker-y. The Undercoat is only usable on Mechagon island, so you're better off using the toy, which you can get in a Runebound Chest in Drustvar.

      The Eye of N'Zoth is a nice little addition there. And in case you were wondering, here's what the wings look like in Shadow Form:

      Here come more of the daily hotfixes for the pre-patch, and we have another big batch! From achievements to many more class tweaks, BC gems having their numbers tweaked and more! 
      October 20 (source)
      Achievements
      The Will of the Emperor encounter special ability, Opportunistic Strike, is obtainable once again for completing the achievement Show Me Your Moves! . Classes
      Death Knight Unholy The additional Shadow damage from Soul Reaper’s (Talent) explosion is now correctly affected by Mastery. Druid Balance Damage caused by Starfall will break the caster out of stealth. Mage General Vision of Perfection (Azerite Essence) no longer procs Rune of Power (Talent). Frost The Water Elemental pet now learns Freeze at level 23. Priest General Priests on the quest “Blade in Twilight” can now use the Tirisfal Camp Scroll again to get back to the Whispering Forest if they leave the area. Warlock General Unstable Affliction’s damage dealt when it is dispelled has been reduced by 35%. Items and Rewards
      Many Burning Crusade gems have had their stats updated to the correct numbers. Pet Battles
      The Sun Darter Hatchling is obtainable once again. Happy hunting! Player versus Player
      Fixed an issue where some Gladiator mounts were not accessible across the account. The Conquest limit has been increased and players can once again progress on their Weekly Conquest reward. Quests
      Players who are eligible to visit Nazjatar will no longer be prompted upon log in to start the quests, “The Warchief’s Order” or “The Wolf’s Offensive”. Instead, players can begin their journey to Nazjatar by starting the quest, “Send the Fleet”, by speaking to Nathanos or Genn Greymane. Reduced the difficulty of the enemies in the Alliance quest “Fairwind’s “Friends”’. World Events
      The Hallow’s End Candy Bucket located in The Veiled Stair now appears in all phases.

      Update: Well that didn't last long! It seems Blizzard have already patched the Heart of Azeroth with a minimum equip level of 40, as noted by the XPOff forums, where the low-level equip trick originated!

      Source.
      It seems players that have already gotten the neck at lower levels still have it equipped, but it doesn't give them any stats, nor do any Azerite powers on pieces they have work.
      ________________________________________
      Here we are in another edition of "Exploit or clever use of game mechanics"! It seems some twink-oriented communities have found a way to get a very powerful item on their characters very early on, as players have been spotting chars with the Heart of Azeroth as early as level 10!
      The trick is pretty simple, but it might be considered an exploit so maybe don't necessarily try it for yourself. All you need is a max level friend to accompany you into a dungeon, get an Azerite item to drop and trade it to you. After a relog this will trigger the HoA quest where you get the level 50 neck, and since it auto-equips, there you have it, an item level 55 piece as early as level 10!

      This is quite an advantage in PvP for the lower brackets (especially for twinks who lock their levels), not to mention a very nice boost to general leveling speeds, and Blizzard will probably/hopefully hotfix it pretty soon. It remains to be seen if players who already have their HoA on low levels will get to keep it, and if there will perhaps be actions on the accounts that did this, since the line between exploit and clever use is and always have been pretty arbitrary when it comes to actual suspensions/warnings.
      Source 1, 2.

      The Vision of Perfection Azerite Essence has been nerfed for Mages a short while ago. This change mostly affects Frost mages, as our own Made guide writer Dutchmagoz explains:

      It's time to relax a little between bouts of pre-patch and squish weirdness, as we take a look at all the WoW dances, including the new Allied Race ones. The video also provides sources for the dances themselves with the music in the background!
      Personally I'm still mildly to extremely upset that my recent roll of Highmountain Druid gets the same old dance as my Vanilla Tauren did.
