AUGUST 8, 2022
Hunter Survival [With realm restarts] (4) Set Bonus: Mad Bombardier damage bonus has been reduced to 50% (was 70%). [With realm restarts] Mongoose Bite damage increased by 20%. This change does not apply to PvP. [With realm restarts] Raptor Strike damage increased by 20%. This change does not apply to PvP. [With realm restarts] Serpent Sting damage increased by 20%. This change does not apply to PvP. [With realm restarts] Kill Command damage increased by 20%. This change does not apply to PvP. [With realm restarts] Fixed an issue where Raptor Strike was dealing less damage than intended while Aspect of the Eagle was active. Developers’ note: The Survival Hunter Mad Bombardier 4-piece set bonus is still causing Survival Hunters to over perform in multi-target situations. We’re lowering the effectiveness of the 4-piece bonus while also increasing the damage of your single target abilities to offset this loss of damage against a single target. Warlock Destruction [With realm restarts] Rain of Fire damage reduced by 20%. [With realm restarts] Infernal’s Immolation Aura reduced by 20%. Developers’ note: We’re still seeing Destruction excel in multi-target situations. We’re applying additional changes here to stabilize their throughput when scaling with high target counts.

Old Karazhan gear from Legion can be converted to Sepulcher mogs on live servers using the Creation Catalyst.
Reddit user VeryLosh discovered that it's possible to convert old Karazhan gear (item level 50) into Sepulcher transmogs via the Creation Catalyst. I believe it will also work with old Grimrail Depot gear.
The player used Wrap of the Fixed Stars (item level 50 back) and converted it using 600 Cosmic Flux into Cloak of Sweltering Flame. The item level was still 50 after the conversion and this method is only useful if you have old Karazhan gear from Legion in your bank. You can watch the whole conversion process below.
Quest givers are visible through walls on the Dragonflight Alpha.
Content creator MrGM discovered that NPCs that offer you quests are visible through walls in Dragonflight. The change is most likely intended and we do not know if you can turn it off, at this time.
