An overview of all interesting event happening in Azeroth during the week of November 14.

New Magni Bronzebeard Argus Quests

Artifact Knowledge Level 52

Players now have access to AK level 52. Legion's max cap is 55. Artifact Knowledge is account-wide and there's no reason to worry about catching up on Artifact traits or the Netherlight Crucible. The amount of AP gained is ridiculous.

Mythic Keystone Affixes

PvP Brawl: Deep Six (Nov 14 - 21)

Deep Six pits teams of six players against each other in three iconic Battlegrounds: Warsong Gulch, Silvershard Mines, and Temple of Kotmogu. Each Battleground offers a little variation on the traditional format, such as flags that are a bit closer in Warsong Gulch, fewer carts to keep track of in Silvershard Mines, and only two orbs within the Temple of Kotmogu.

      It's time for more battles as raid testing returns this weekend (and Thursday)! Both factions get to check the bosses out, as well as the opposing faction's bosses using the new flashback mechanic. We're getting both Heroic and Mythic tested this time around, with the first wing of LFR opening on Friday and staying open throughout the weekend.
      November 15 - 19 (source)
      On Thursday, November 15th and Friday, November 16th we will be conducting raid tests of the Battle of Dazar'alor. After testing has ended up Friday, we will open the first wing of Raid Finder.
      BOTH FACTIONS:
      Testing is open for both factions. However, for some bosses, raid members will temporarily re-live events as the opposite faction using a story flashback.

      16:00 PST (19:00 EST, 1:00 CET)
      As always, this testing schedule is very fluid and subject to the realities of a test environment. We might have to change the time of a testing session, change the bosses being tested, or cancel a test entirely, due to bugs, server hardware issues, etc. Keep an eye on this forum for the latest information, and thank you in advance for testing and providing feedback.
      Q: How do I get into the raid zone?
      A: In Zuldazar, Boralus, Dalaran, Orgrimmar, or Stormwind, you may speak to Nexus-Lord Donjon Rade III in order to teleport into the raid zone while it is open for testing. (The option to teleport into a zone will not be available when the zone is not open for testing.)
      Q: What character should I use to test the raid?
      A: Whichever you prefer. We will be scaling players' effective level to 120 for raid testing, and their item level to an appropriate threshold for the encounter(s) being tested.
      Q: How long does testing last?
      A: The primary purpose of testing is to give us the information we need to balance the encounters, evaluate how mechanics are playing out in practice, and identify bugs. Once we're satisfied that we've received that information for a given boss, we'll be shutting down testing. Usually this takes anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours, but there are no guarantees.

      In the latest Method interview, we learned how the new Reaping affix will play out in Tides of Vengeance.
      In Battle for Azeroth, Blizzard brought Seasons to Mythic+. Infested was the first Seasonal affix inspired by G'huun. The affix will be soon replaced with Reaping in Season 2 that will start early next year.
      Affix Description Reaping Non-boss enemies are empowered by Bwonsamdi and periodically seek vengeance from beyond the grave. How Reaping Works
      Reaping was inspired by Battle of Dazar'alor and Bwonsamdi. Every 20% on the Enemy forces bar, Bwonsamdi will resurrect spirits of all the trash creatures you had killed up to that point and they will charge at you no matter where you're at. This happens a total of 5 times per dungeon. You will be in full control of when this occurs, so planning/adjusting your pulls will be crucial. One of the ideas they had with this was to change how you approach the dungeon. Blood Moon will rise whenever Bwonsamdi calls on his powers and there's also something cool that might happen after you lose the timer. You can also check out the video below, where the devs talk about the affix and upcoming changes to Necrotic.

      It's time to poke our friends over at exceL and get some hints and tips for Mythic+! It's up to you guys to dig up all the interesting info and ask the right questions, whether it's about the recent MDI Invitational, Mythic+ in general or even next season's new Reaping affix!
      As you'll remember, they rose all the way to the top in this year's Mythic Dungeon Invitational and claimed the grand prize, as well as more recently participated in the MDI All Stars Invitational at BlizzCon earlier this month and the org itself has been a core part of the scene built around multiple games since 2014, fielding teams in League of Legends, Street Fighter V, and more.
      Tthe Mythic+ team consists of Divinefield, Cirra, Ashine, Dorullkjell and Herudra, so submit your questions right here in the comments over the next 7 days and the awesome players of exceL's Angels will answer when we collect all of them.
      Have any questions for the M+ team? Come and ask them!

      It's a good day for solos it seems, as we now have a Mythic Helya kill, right after the amazing +11 Atal'Dazar! Durendil went into Trial of Valor on his own and faced the tentacles and light water splashes of Helheim and came out on top in what he describes as a fight that has everything he ever wanted from a solo encounter.
