Blizzard has updated rewards from the weekly Zereth Mortis quest in the latest 9.2 PTR build.
Patterns within Patterns is the name of the weekly Zereth Mortis quest. In the previous build, the quest rewarded:
1x Tribute of the Enlightened Elders -- Contained 250 reputation with all 4 Shadowlands factions, 800-1000 gold, 10-16 Cyphers of the First Ones, Item level 242-252 gear based on your researched Cypher Equipment level. 1x Anima Matrix -- Gives you 250 Anima.
However, in 9.2 Build 41962, quest rewards have changed and when you complete the quest by filling the bar to 100%, you will receive:
1x Tribute of the Enlightened Elders - Contains Cyphers of the First Ones, 800-1000 gold, and Item level 242-252 gear based on your researched Cypher Equipment level. 1x Anima Matrix -- Gives you 250 Anima. +250 Reputation with Shadowlands Factions 150x Cosmic Flux used to upgrade Legendary items to Rank 7 in Patch 9.2. 1 Renown if you're not at Renown 80. As you can see above, the weekly quest no longer rewards Anima or reputation with Shadowlands factions as of build 41962. The cyphers moved over to the cache and you'll also receive 1 Renown if you're not at 80. Thanks to patf0rd for helping us correct the inconsistencies in this post.
Blizzard continues to adjust tier set bonuses on the 9.2 PTR and the latest update is no exception. Here's the latest round of tier set changes that went live in Build 41962.

The twelfth week of Patch 9.1.5 is coming to an end, so we're looking at the current tier list for Mythic+.
In this post, we're looking at the tier list for Mythic+ based on the data gathered by Benched.me. The site plots all runs available from the Blizzard API (excluding the Chinese region) on a single ridge plot, so the data is different from our Shadowlands Mythic+ Rankings maintained by Petko.
How the Data is Calculated
To rank all specializations, Benched.me uses something called Meta Ratio Score. The "ratio" is between the specialization's representation in the meta vs. its representation in the population. For example, a specialization makes up 3% of all players in the population, but 6% in the meta, which means that spec's ratio is 6% / 3% = 2.
Furthermore, the site defines the "population" as all keys level 2 through 15 and the "meta" as keys 16 and above. Based on that, we break down specs into tiers based on their meta ratio as follows:
S-Tier: Ratio of at least 1.5. A-Tier: Ratio between 1 and 1.5. B-Tier: Ratio between 0.5 and 1. C-Tier: Ratio below 0.5, but greater than 0. F-Tier: Ratio of 0 (the spec isn't present in the high-level bin at all). Class / Specialization Mythic+ Tier List (Patch 9.1.5 Week #12)
Affliction Warlock - 1.62 meta ratio A-Tier
Shadow Priest is now in A-Tier (was B).
Subtlety Rogue - 1.47 meta ratio Windwalker Monk - 1.28 meta ratio Fire Mage - 1.28 meta ratio Outlaw Rogue - 1.23 meta ratio Guardian Druid - 1.22 meta ratio Restoration Shaman - 1.20 meta ratio Brewmaster Monk - 1.15 meta ratio Holy Paladin - 1.14 meta ratio Marksmanship Hunter - 1.13 meta ratio Frost Mage - 1.13 meta ratio Balance Druid - 1.10 meta ratio Elemental Shaman - 1.07 meta ratio Arms Warrior - 1.05 meta ratio Arcane Mage - 1.00 meta ratio Shadow Priest - 1.00 meta ratio B-Tier
Discipline Priest - 0.98 meta ratio Vengeance Demon Hunter - 0.97 meta ratio Unholy Death Knight - 0.94 meta ratio Havoc Demon Hunter - 0.94 meta ratio Fury Warrior - 0.94 meta ratio Blood Death Knight - 0.92 meta ratio Survival Hunter - 0.89 meta ratio Protection Paladin - 0.88 meta ratio Holy Priest - 0.88 meta ratio Beast Mastery Hunter - 0.83 meta ratio Restoration Druid - 0.78 meta ratio Protection Warrior - 0.76 meta ratio Assassination Rogue - 0.75 meta ratio Feral Druid - 0.72 meta ratio Mistweaver Monk - 0.72 meta ratio Enhancement Shaman - 0.68 meta ratio Frost Death Knight - 0.68 meta ratio Destruction Warlock - 0.66 meta ratio Demonology Warlock - 0.65 meta ratio Retribution Paladin - 0.55 meta ratio SPEC TIER LIST PLOT (PATCH 9.1.5 WEEK #12)

In our latest article, we're looking at mount animation changes coming in Patch 9.2.
Mechagon spider mounts can fly in Eternity's End. This also applies to the new Ahead of the Curve mount from Heroic Jailer.
Armored Blue Dragonhawk (A) and Armored Red Dragonhawk (H) now use the same mount special as the Mythic Sylvanas mount (Vengeance's Reins). For now, older dragonhawk mounts don't share this "new" mount special animation.
