Wings of the Amber Monarch
With these wings you can go almost anywhere.

Complete activities to fill the bar at the top of the Traveler’s Log found in the Adventure Guide (Shift-J)***, and you'll receive this month's bonus reward — Wings of the Amber Monarch transmog. Embody the spirit of spring everywhere you go when you gild your back with these lovely wings.


Get the Burden of Unrelenting Justice Transmog Sets

It’s been a year since T&W (Tawney and Wilder) and the Zen’shiri Trading Post have been supplying a variety of delightful mounts, pets, toys, and transmogs to the citizens of Azeroth. To celebrate, players who have earned the monthly special reward from the trading Post twelve times will be rewarded with a new achievement, “Trading Post Enthusiast” along with a new color-shifting transmog — the Burden of Unrelenting Justice transmog set.

The Burden of Unrelenting Justice Transmog Set includes 9 pieces: Head, Shoulder, Chest, Waist, Legs, Feet, Wrist, Hand, and Cloak.

With the release of the Seeds of Renewal content update, players who complete the twelve months will also receive two non-color-shifting sets representing the day and night version of the color-shifting transmog for a total of three sets retroactively. Players who earn the achievement after the launch of the Seeds of Renewal Content update will automatically receive all three sets for their collection.

You don’t need to earn the special reward twelve times consecutively to get the achievement and the transmog sets.


How it Works

Get Tender Every Month

At the first of each month, players with an active account in good standing will receive 500 Trader’s Tender automatically every month from a chest called the Collector’s Cache. If you don’t have active game time on your account or aren’t a subscriber at the start of a new month, don’t worry. Your Tender will be awarded on the first day of the month when you do have game time or an active subscription. This will be the same amount for everyone, regardless of how you pay for your game time.

The Traveler's Log

Complete monthly activities listed in the new Traveler’s Log. Each month features a rotating, themed set of activities. These activities provide the opportunity to earn up to 500 additional Trader’s Tender. There’s only a set amount of Tender you can earn each month through completing activities, so you won’t need to complete all the ones in the log each month. You’ll be able to pick and choose from a variety of fun in-game activities to easily earn Tender. Players can choose to earn by continuing to play the game as they already do, such as completing quests, competing in battlegrounds, participating in holiday activities, and even running Mythic+ dungeons. But you can also choose to take part in activities uniquely designed for the month.

Freeze an Item

Before the month comes to an end, if you haven’t purchased that one “must-have” item yet, don’t worry. You can “freeze” an item so you can purchase it later. When you freeze an item, it will stay available month over month until it is purchased or replaced.

If this month’s offerings didn’t have the items you wanted, you can hang on to your Trader’s Tender to spend later. It won’t go anywhere, and unspent Tender will continue to accumulate each month.

*The Trading Post feature is not available in WoW Classic titles.
**Requires World of Warcraft Subscription or Game Time
***Requires Level 10 to access the Adventure Guide.

This month looks pretty boring. Barely anything new.

I agree there's way too much recycling going on. Something new and unique for mounts or pets would be a really nice change from my perspective at least.

The blazing hippogryph is nice, but everything else, eh. If those wings were a mount it would be amazing, but alas...

I think part of the problem and why everything seems so boring is that the game is so old, and has so much stuff in it already that it's hard to make anything truly feel rewarding.

Back in BC getting a new mount was a big deal. There weren't that many in the game in the first place, and most were rare and hard to get. Pretty much any mount that wasn't a racial was special and worth showing off or bragging about. Today there are hundreds of mounts and the majority are so easy to get that you don't even think about it any more. Getting a new mount doesn't even register as an event. It's just another collectable you click and forget about. That makes it really hard to Blizz to get anyone excited about non-combat rewards these days. Everyone has long since already pick their favorite mounts and transmogs, and everything else is just a +1 to your collection counts.

      After the Frog Farm nerf, players in MoP Remix have found a new farming spot with Goats!
      In MoP Remix, many players are now farming Goats instead of Frogs. Although the new Goat farm isn’t as profitable, it's become the new go-to spot.

      How Does the New Goat Farm Work?
      To start farming goats, head to the location in Valley of the Four Winds shown below. Screenshot courtesy of NexerdGamer.

      The Goat farm is straightforward: fly around the designated area until you find packs of goats and kill them. There’s always at least one pack available at any time.
      For more details check out the following video by NexerdGamer.

      MoP Remix is the big focus on the retail side of things, as we get many new fixes, in addition to the major changes announced earlier today. We also get some developer notes on those big changes, as well as more class improvements in Cataclysm Classic.

      WoW Remix: Mists of Pandaria
      Shirts and tabards can now be purchased from Larah Treebender at any Infinite Bazaar, Mei Steadypaw outside the Shrine of Two Moons and the Shrine of Seven Stars, and Hanchoon Yi at Paw’don Village, Honeydew Village, Shrine of Two Moons, and Shrine of Seven Stars. Fixed a bug preventing Timerunners with a legendary Infinite Cloak of Potential from accessing Ordon Sanctuary as intended. Fixed an issue with the spawning of Voress’thalik which prevented the completion of “Devastation Below”. Fixed an issue preventing players from learning Amber Pterrordax. Fixed a bug causing Gulp Frogs to unintentionally drop Lesser Charms of Good Fortune. Enemy power scaling, particularly in group content, has been adjusted to be less aggressive. This is particularly applicable in the player level 40 - 70 range, before players have been able to power up their cloak, upgrade their gems, and increase their item level. Gear drop-rates have been improved from world rares, rare elites, and quests. This will help players who have had their item levels fall behind as leveling speed increases, especially at higher levels when cloak bonus experience is powered up. Developers’ notes: This will also increase player Bronze and appearance acquisition by increasing the number of items to place into the Unraveling Sands for additional Bronze. The first-time bonus for queueing each LFR wing will grant a Thread of Experience in addition to the existing Lesser Bronze Cache. Developers’ notes: This should improve LFR as a viable choice for leveling main characters and alts, without players feeling like they need to grind the same LFR wing repeatedly. We have added bonus experience to each boss in normal dungeons and scenarios so they are a viable alternative to questing. Bonus experience has also been adding to the last boss of Heroic Scenarios. Heroic dungeon bosses will continue to drop bonus experience. We’ve increased the number of prismatic gems dropped from bosses in normal and heroic scenarios and dungeons. Developers’ notes: The increased stamina offered by Legendary Prismatic gems boosts player survivability considerably. We have increased the Bronze granted from all qualities of Bronze Caches by 25%. Developers’ notes: These caches are available from a wide variety of sources, both solo and group. This includes the Minor Bronze Cache, Lesser Bronze Cache, Bronze Cache, and Greater Bronze Cache. Fixed an issue where Sha-Skin Vestment was marked as Cosmetic instead of Cloth armor. Cataclysm Classic
      Players may skip directly to the beginning of Vashj’ir using a portal in their respective cities. “Vashj’ir: Call of Duty” will remain available to players who skipped directly to “Sea Legs”. Hunter Ancient Hysteria from Hunter Core Hound pets has been renamed Primal Rage. The debuff it causes has been renamed from Insanity to Fatigued. Fixed a bug preventing pets from displaying in the Stable as intended. Mage When Combustion gains damage from Ignite, that Ignite damage will not get increased a second time from Fire Mage Mastery Flashburn. It was already increased once by Flashburn when first applied.

      Blizzard is currently working on making level 70 gameplay more rewarding in MoP Remix.

      Big changes arrive to the Remix limited time event, as Blizzard address some of the issues players have been having. We see improvements for: higher level enemy scaling, drop rates overall, LFR, dungeon and scenario XP and gem drops, and the earlier Bronze drop from caches. 
      MoP Remix (Source)
      We’re making a number of changes to address issues players have been reporting with scaling and improve the overall Remix experience by improving the viability of all content for earning additional experience, bronze, and gear. The following updates have already been made to all realms via hotfix:

      Blizzard just published another short story from the War Within series about Anduin called "The Calling".
      (Source)
      Since leaving the realms of Death, Anduin Wrynn has only sought to keep his hands busy. Plagued by night terrors and grisly flashbacks, the young king finally finds the isolation he seeks in Stormsong Valley, milling flour for a local village. But while Anduin may be able to hide his identity, he cannot escape who he is or the stuff he is made from.
