We have three short blue posts today covering a recently fixed bug from the PTR regarding a quest reward item level getting reduced, a second clarifying how the ranks for the new essence system work and a third on the mobile app getting updated as we speak.
First off, it seems an early Nazjatar quest reward weapon has had it's item level drastically reduced from the PTR version (415 to 370), as the old version was bugged and had an unintentionally high one:

I can confirm that there was a bug in the PTR that was causing this reward to generate at an unintentionally high item level, and the bug was finally fixed just before the content update went live.
So you’re seeing the intended power of the reward, and it should be consistent with other rewards that come from similar activities.
Secondly, there's a tweet clarifying the requirements for higher rank essences:
And finally, the mobile app isn't functioning for some players as it's currently being updated and should pop up at slightly different times for different users:

There is an update to the app that came today with Rise of Azshara/8.2. It may take a while for the update to propagate out but we have confirmed that people are receiving it. Keep an eye out for updates on your device and you will be able to use the app again soon.
You can never really have enough alts it seems and leveling them can be annoying for a lot of players. Redditor skybeuter pointed out a cheaper way to boost your alts to level 110, considering the regular char boost service costs around 53 Euro.
What you do is set up a secondary Battle.net account under your main one and set it up as a trial account. You then then take advantage of the current 44% sale on the regular edition of Battle for Azeroth, which includes a character level boost and costs 25E.
Since the two accounts are linked the level boost can be applied to your main account as well, saving you 28 Euro in the process! The sale ends on July 8th.
Here comes the big entry point into the new patch as Azshara welcomes both the Alliance and Horde into her domain in an appropriately flashy manner.
Only the Alliance version is available at the moment, but the differences should be minimal based on what's we've seen and we'll update the post once the Horde one is posted.
Patch 8.2 is now live in Americas and Blizzard posted a list of known issues for Rise of Azshara that should not be reported, because they will be fixed via hotfixes starting later today.
