All these changes in the alpha for MW Monk I might dust mine off for DF content.  Some are rather intriguing of just reading the description.  I see changes for MM and Survival Hunter but very little actual change for BM.  Devour Magic and Drain Soul are interesting and would like to try those out as Demonology.  Warrior has me intrigued with some of their new talents and i'm curious of Odin's Fury which is not live at this time.

      This week's Dragonflight Beta update reveals more information about the new Dragonflight Season 1 affix - Thundering!
      The new affix will be active in all +10 runs and above. It is themed after Raszageth, the final boss found within the Vaults of the Incarnates raid. It is very similar to Quaking.
      Thundering - While in combat, players are periodically caught in Raszageth's unending storm. As the storm passes, players discharge excess energy that can damage and stun allies.

      Mythic +0 dungeons and Raid Finder bosses no longer drop Rare Quality gear on the Beta. The seemingly visual change has been reverted to Epic Quality.
      In the previous build ,we reported about Mythic +0 dungeons and select Raid Finder bosses in the Vaults raid dropping Rare Quality gear.

      However, Blizzard has reverted the loot quality to its previous state and Mythic +0 dungeons as well as bosses on Raid Finder difficulty again drop Epic Quality gear.
