In Patch 7.3.2, Legendary items can be upgraded to item level 1,000. Blizzard also added Legendary tokens and a ring that empowers traits from the Netherlight Crucible.

Upgrading Legendary Items

In Patch 7.3.2 Legendary items can be upgraded to item level 1,000. The Cursed Shard quest is started by looting Cursed ShardCursed Shard. The item has a variety of sources. It can drop in LFR or you can get it by doing the first Random Heroic Dungeon of the day. Once you bring it to Arcanomancer Vridiel in Dalaran, you will get 10 Wakening Essences. Collect 50 Wakening Essences to get Awoken Titan EssenceAwoken Titan Essence and upgrade a Legendary item to 1,000.

Sources

The Kirin Tor emissary bag did not reward any essences on PTR, but this can be random and needs further confirmation. Maybe they can only be collected from Argus faction bags. Antorus bosses drop a random amount of essences. Garothi Worldbreaker dropped 4 in LFR.

Source Amount Status
Mythic Order Hall Cache (Once a week) 20 Wakening Essences Confirmed
Antorus Bosses (Each boss) Wakening Essences (LFR 1st Boss) Confirmed
Emissary Bag (Complete 5 World Quests) Wakening Essences Amount TBA
First Random Heroic Dungeon (Once a day) Wakening Essences Confirmed

Weekly PvP Quests (2v2, 3v3, 10v10)

Wakening Essences Amount TBA
Cursed ShardCursed Shard (The Cursed Shard quest / one-time-only) 10 Wakening Essences Confirmed

New Legendary Items

Two Legendary item will be added in Patch 7.3.2. The legendary ring will be available to players that defeat Argus the Unmaker on Normal difficulty or higher and the trinket is a drop from Argus the Unmaker. The ring's affix increases the effects of Light and Shadow powers from the Netherlight Crucible by 50%. You can find more information in our Netherlight Crucible guide.

Recently, Blizzard updated one of the Path of the Titans trinkets (Aman'Thul's WisdomAman'Thul's Vision) to item level 1,000 and now it is a Legendary item that does not count toward the 2 Legendary cap. Path of the Titans trinkets can be upgraded with Pantheon's BlessingPantheon's Blessing up to item level 1,000, so we're not sure yet, if all trinkets will be of Legendary quality after upgrading them to the maximum item level. More information can be found here.

Legendary Tokens

Patch 7.3.2 adds new Legendary tokens to help keep gameplay on your main rewarding. Legendary tokens will start dropping when you collect ALL Legendary items on your class, in other words, on your main. Collecting ALL Legendary items designated for a single specialization won't suffice. Legendary tokens are BoA, so they can be sent to your alts (even when they are on a different realm). Use them to discover a random Legendary item.

FAQ

  • You can start collecting Wakening Essences right away when Antorus opens. You don't need to loot Cursed ShardCursed Shard or accept any quests first.
  • All Legendary items that drop after Antorus opens will have item level 1,000.
  • All crafted Legendary items will be of item level 1,000 by default when Antorus opens.
  • Awoken Titan EssenceAwoken Titan Essence is used to upgrade a single Legendary item to item level 1,000. You need to collect more Wakening Essences in order to upgrade additional Legendary items.
  • Legendary tokens won't drop unless you collect ALL legendary items on your class.
  • Blizzard mentioned in the latest Q/A that the team is closely monitoring the drop rate of Legendary items. Two legendaries are a standard for raiding, so they may increase the drop rate of the first few Legendary items on a character.
  • At the moment, Blizzard has no plans to increase the Legendary item cap to 3.

If you have any questions feel free to leave them in the comments.

All legendary items for a class? So not only will I need to start playing disc, I will need to get all disc legendaries?

 

Urghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

You can change loot spec without playing disc.
 

I am more curious as to how the tokens "transform". Let's say I have all legendaries for my DH and a token just dropped. Will it be a random class token that never changes or wIll it be a DH token that automatically changes into a DK token when I mail it to my DK alt?

It will still take forever though, especially with all-class/all-spec legendaries pushing down the drop rate. :(

My understanding is that it's the former.

The tokens are really pointless to work towards to, don't bother. They are for people who already have a main that has all legendaries for their class.

If you have an alt you really want legendaries for, you would be better served by just playing that alt directly.

Ouch..that seems kind of counter-intuitive, giving players a semblance of control through a random token...
Oh well, I suppose I don't have to worry about it, coz my main is a druid (4 specs to go through)  lolz~

Its not designed for that. Its literally just a way for players who have maintained the same main for the entire expansion to still get legendary rewards for playing without feeling like their time is wasted on their main.

By the way, you don't even have to change your loot spec to receive legendaries of the other specs. Once you have received all the legendaries in one spec, the others begin dropping at random whether you want it or not.

So another shit addition to an already shit system. Marvelous.

I care much more about most alt legendaries than I do the legendaries for my never-played specs such as tank.

Great news about essence, it will easy to farm it and boost that 2-3 legendaries what is the most important for raiding.

About tokens.. this is ridicoulos. I play on my new account since august, i have 450 hrs played gametime on my main warlock, what is i think a lot, and still don't have all legendaries for my main affliction spec after i do all emissary, clearing every week all actual and old content. So really?! I'm really hope this is not a final concept.

I think it will use a smart system to determine alt classes on your account.

Lol, can't even imagine that. You get this token for a class you don't even have. You level it up only to find out that you got a bad utility Legendary :D.

Why so much hate for the legendary tokens?
I barely do anything and already have one legendary left to get on my main, those tokens are also still not coming right now. I get a legendary every ~1,5 weeks, which means I am gonna be more then ready to get the rest even before antorus...and as said, I am doing MUCH less than I SHOULD be doing, considering trying to get better in myth progress.
When it comes to "now I need to play [other specc] to get the rest".....no you don't.
You don't even need to change your lootspecc. When you have all legendaries for one specc, you just get the other specc legendaries when a new one drops, happened multiple times now.
(e.g. outlaw back and bracers when specced and lootspecced subtlety)

They are adding a feature to give your twinks legendaries...and there's still people complaining...

People are complaining because you MUST HAVE ALL LEGENDARIES FOR YOUR CLASS before these tokens will ever start dropping, which in my opinion, is a terrible idea. Just let them drop randomly like Unsullied tokens, albeit, at a MUCH lower rate. Problem fixed. Why Blizzard has to make everything as frustrating as possible is beyond me...

We complain because they do not fix the alt/new/returning player legendaries problem , it fixes a problem that doesn't even exist. A guy that has every single legendary on a character like you do is already playing a ton of hours so he won't really care that he needs to farm 2 legendaries to have another alt ready for raiding. A new/returning or casual player with alts though still needs to play RNG catch up with other raid members that already have their BIS legendaries while he doesn't have the time to farm on the side. Imagine i want to get back raiding in Legion and i have a generic legendary like sephuz while everyone else that was active has propably both BIS legendaries, i will never get a raiding spot until i farm and pray to RNG that i get my BIS and be able to match the dps of the other players.

I clean every raid on normal and heroic difficult every week (sometimes even LFR), do the dungeon world tour, a lot of WQs and some Mythic + runs, and I get one legendary per month if I'm lucky. 

This RNG garbage needs to go, and I hope this system won't be on the next expansion.

(Are you a rogue, or was that just a random example?)

The hate is because as-is those tokens are completely unneeded. People have been asking for some way of catch-up for legendaries (and rightly so) so newer players could get into the game and compete more easily with those who have played 24/7 since the beginning of expansion, or to make rerolling/re-speccing less punishing.

Instead they ignore that completely and give more stuff to the 1% who definitely does not need more.

They wanted to massively increase the drop rate for the first two legendaries for a character and that's a step in the right direction if it makes both legendaries show up within the first week at 110, but that completely ignores the fact 95% of legendaries for your class suck compared to your BiS. Get unlucky with two bad legendaries? Better bring out your wallet and pay $60 for a 100 boost so you can quickly reroll that character and get it back to 110 and hope that one gets better legendaries, because every moment you spend more without your BiS is wasted. But maybe that's what they want.

 

Instead of recognizing the problem with legendaries they just keep giving more and more additions that only really benefit those who have already been lucky to begin with. Remember spec-specific BLP? Oh you got Prydaz and Roots as your first two legendaries? Well too bad, your BLP is shot for all specs. Got your two BiS spec-specific legendaries as your first two? Congrats, now you also get to have your first two legendaries for your off-specs easier.

It would make more sense if legendary tokens started dropping when you already collected them all in one spec. That way if you did have them all for that spec, you'll still have a chance to get a legendary item for other specs or classes you play regularly especially when you need to keep your loot specialization set for a boss's item that can only drop for that spec (such as a trinket for dps spec vs healing trinks vs tank trinks). As it stands now, it's a slap in the face for the token system players have asked for since the inception of legendary items, including me. This is very disappointing and I hope everyone will take the time to let Blizzard know, civilly.

      We're 4 for 4 in this first week of Battle for Azeroth and as we head into the weekend we see Azerite armor outer ring requirements reduced on the Heart of Azeroth, Affliction Warlock Deathbolt fixes, Conquest removals until PvP Season 1 starts, Brewmaster PvP fixes/nerfs, the removal of two belt enchant from PvP, and a bit fewer fixes for professions and quests than usual.
      August 17 (source)
      Azerite Gear
      Substantially lowered the Heart of Azeroth level required to activate the outer ring of Azerite armor obtained from World Quests and Mythic dungeons. Classes
      Warlock Affliction Deathbolt will now correctly deal increased damage if cast immediately after casting Unstable Affliction. Creatures and NPCs
      Slickspill should be much easier to loot now. Items
      Fixed an issue where 'Bygone Bee' Almanac's cooldown or duration would be affected too much when hitting multiple enemies. Player versus Player
      Sources of Conquest such as the World PvP Call to Arms quests, PvP Island Expeditions, Skirmish, and Battleground queues will award Honor until Battle for Azeroth: Arena Season 1 starts. Players who currently have Conquest will have the currency converted to Honor once they log in. Miniaturized Plasma Shield and Personal Space Amplifier engineering belt enchants can no longer be used in Arenas and Rated Battlegrounds. Fierce Gladiator is once again available to players who have earned the Fierce Gladiator: Legion Season 5 achievement. The War Mode Air Supply Drops in Tiragarde Sound should no longer fall in unreachable locations. Monk Brewmaster Incendiary Brew now adheres to line of sight restrictions. Double Barrel will no longer stun targets multiple times per Keg Smash cast. Professions
      Cooking Fixed a bug that prevented Pandaria Banquets from granting the intended skill levels to Pandaria Cooking and Way of the Grill. Quests
      Fixed a bug that caused the miners to not respawn as intended for “A Shot at the Dark Iron”. Fixed a bug where missions required to unlock hubs on the other continent were expiring quickly. Riding Macaw is no longer unfriendly to Horde for the world quest "Swab This!". Hexlord Raal is now reliably present to offer “Pa'ku, Master of Winds”. “The Lord Admiral's Lament" and "Bloodied Sentinel's Glaive" can now be turned in to Kayla Mills World
      Flight paths unlocked through missions should now reliably appear as valid destinations on the flight map. Previous Patch 8.0.1 Hotfixes

      Game files contain a male character model named "ThinHuman" with various customization options. The model provides a good example of how Kul Tiran Humans would look if they weren't all chubby.
      Blizzard probably uses the character model to generate NPCs for the outdoor world, same thing we've seen with the Lightforged Draenei on Argus before they have been added as an Allied Race. It would be really cool to see this as a customization option for Kul Tiran Humans, what do you think? Here's an overview of all "ThinHuman" customization options:
      Skin Color

      Faces

      The fall season of 2018's Arena World Championship is bringing two new BfA arenas to the table, Mugambala and Hook Point, set in Zandalar and Boralus, respectively. 6 cups await this season, with each bringing a $10,000 prize pool and a whole bunch of AWC points, so check out the full schedule and requirements to join in the competition:
      Arena Fall Season (source)
      The Arena World Championship is a 3v3 tournament that takes place in the iconic battlegrounds of Azeroth. In this Fall Season, we are introducing Mugambala and Hook Point, two asymmetrical arenas which were released in the Battle for Azeroth expansion.
      Mugambala is set in Zandalar, a region that was once a part of ancient Kalimdor and the birthplace of troll civilization. This arena features an upper level, and a lower level with a large pillar in the middle. Hook Point is an area in Boralus, where only the bravest battle for the right to call themselves true Kul Tirans! It features four pillars for players to dance around—one with a shark hanging from it—and two smaller pillars. This season, there are six Cups up for grabs—three in North American and three in Europe—each with a prize pool of $10,000 and an increased amount of AWC points on offer, more than any season this year!
      No Arena ranking is required for teams of three to four people to sign up. Once you are deemed eligible to compete, you will have access to the Tournament Realm, where you and your teammates will have the ability to create whatever class, talent, and gear combinations you see fit, to practice taking down all who oppose you! If you think you have what it takes, sign up here, and check out the table below for the cutoff times for each of the Fall Season Cups.
      Remember, the top three point-earners of the year from North America and Europe will earn a spot at the Arena World Championship Global Finals at BlizzCon, where they will fight on the biggest WoW esports stage of the year for their share of the $280,000 prize pool.
      If you’re coming back to World of Warcraft for Battle for Azeroth and want to see how the pros handle the new PvP talent system, join us! The Top 8 from each Cup in North America and Europe will be broadcast live on Twitch. Watch as the greatest heroes from across North America and Europe adapt to the changes—it might give you some tips and tricks for your own Arena adventures!

      Today's roundup of blue posts covers Allied Race boosting through Recruit-a-Friend, the Azerite system, Flight Master's Whistle working in Legion zones & more.
      Allied Race Recruit-a-Friend Boost
      If your play an Allied Race and your friend grants you levels through RaF, you will be ineligible to receive Heritage Armor.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Receiving granted levels from Recruit A Friend would make the character ineligible for the heritage armor set.
      If your friend grants levels to one of your Allied Race characters, it makes your character ineligible to receive the Heritage Armor.

      If you grant levels to one of your friend's characters, that won't effect your eligibility for the armor.

      But only the recruited player accumulates levels that can be granted, so that would be your friend. If they were to grant any of those levels onto your Void Elf, that would make your Void Elf ineligible for the armor.
      Azerite System Underwhelming
      It's too early to consider the Azerite system underwhelming. Quest gear only contains generic traits and Azerite Armor from raids has better traits.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Surely im not the only one who feels this way? The azerite gear is essentially the netherlight crucible. Most traits are passive and boring. Does it get better as the xpac goes on or..?
      Some of the default Azerite items from questing don't have a lot of variety because you're still leveling up. Once you're at 120 and getting them from vendors, WQs, and dungeons you start seeing a lot more variety and some pretty neat stuff. 

      Like there's one for Ret that reduces the cooldown of Divine Steed and it gives a speed buff to your entire raid when you use it. Which I thought was pretty rad.

      It's definitely early, but I'm eager to see how it plays out and how this system shapes up as well as what else we might do with it. It has potential, and I'm pretty excited about that alone as a player.
      Unintended Conquest Cap
      A bug in the Battle for Azeroth pre-patch caused players to receive Conquest from certain PvP activities, but that was never intended outside of Seasons.
      Blizzard (Source)
      With the Battle for Azeroth Pre-Patch, we incurred a bug that caused some PvP activities to reward Conquest. Conquest was never intended to be accessible while the season is not active, and while Conquest did appear for some players on their Character Currency tab, it wasn’t useable. There aren’t any items that can be exchanged for it in-game right now.

      We’ll be deploying a hotfix soon that will change any activities that are currently awarding Conquest to award Honor instead.

      When BFA Season 1 begins, players will start earning Conquest as planned. At the same time, we’ll convert any unintended Conquest that players earned during the post-season to Honor or gold.

      Additionally, new one-time PvP quests will get reset when BFA Season 1 begins. We want to make sure you can complete those quests to earn Conquest from them as intended. These quests are located in the same place where you turn in Conquest quests, so they should be easy to spot.

      We apologize for any confusion this may have caused, and we’re working to make the fixes and conversions as seamless as possible.

      We look forward to everyone engaging with the new Conquest System upcoming in Season 1 of Battle for Azeroth! Click here to learn more.

      Thank you! Flight Master's Whistle
      Flight Master's Whistle will be upgraded to work in BfA zones when you unlock world quests. If you didn't play Legion or destroyed your whistle, you'll receive a new one that will work in Legion zones as well.
      Blizzard (Source)
      When you unlock Battle for Azeroth world quests, your Flight Master's Whistle gains the ability to work in the new lands. if you didn’t play Legion or destroyed your whistle, you will receive a Flight Master's Whistle that works in Legion and Battle for Azeroth zones.

      I usually sim my characters to get the best possible results. I enjoy the process quite a lot and since I reached 120, I wanted to find out the best build of the spec. (Note, I didn't want to find out what to play, but rather how my own build fares in comarison.) I rarely mind a 1-2% difference. If it goes above 2%, I really mind a change. What this thread is about is mainly to bring something in the attention of those who help making the class guides, especially the talent choices. To my surprise, I was awed to find out that certain talents outperform previous "Standard" choices in the endgame, probably due to the stat squish.

      The Frost go-to build (top dps) would probably be along the lines of <Icy Talons / Cold Heart - Runic Attenuation - Frozen Pulse - Gathering Storm - Breath of Sindragosa>. What I found out primarily was that after the removal of legendaries, Cold Heart severely underperforms at most given situations resulting in a major dps drop due to the low mastery. Gathering Storm also suffers from the same problem and most of the times, Frostwyrm's Fury is better overall. The biggest surprise of them all, however, was that Inexorable Assault overperforms quite a lot, and is the first reason why I made the topic. I then started simming with the above in mind and I came across a build that some would not consider on par with top dog builds around the meta, which is the use of Horn of Winter which overperforms both its other two options when using the Breath build. Talent Sim can be seen here. Another intresting thing, which I loved, was that the 2nd best build uses Obliteration as a lvl 100 talent and no other build surpassed it (Other than the first one, obviously). So, I encourage frost players out there to give their other, less common talents a try. To the class guide author(s), I believe that the two "underdog" talents will earn their spot in the class guides.

      Thank you for your time reading this.
