      We have more improvements for Remix today! The rewards keep ramping up as the hyperspawn farm spots keep being removed, and plenty of activities and daily quests have received a new Cache reward with a lot more Bronze in it. There's also fixes for gens, bosses and achievements, with adjustments to Cata Classic as well.

      WoW Remix: Mists of Pandaria
      Normal scenarios, Normal dungeons, Heroic scenarios, Heroic dungeons, and daily Infinite Bazaar quests now award a Cache containing 5x as much Bronze as before. Developers’ notes: We intend for players to earn more Bronze as you level up, so you can more easily start purchasing upgrades and rewards. At level 70, these caches now award 8750 Bronze (this was previously 1750 Bronze). Fixed an issue where the Celestial Court bosses on the Timeless Isle would occasionally despawn. Fixed a bug affecting the scaling of certain Tinker gems. Putrid Waste enemies in Throne of Thunder no longer deal extreme amounts of Putrify damage. Brewmaster Blanche now queues you for A Brewing Storm when asked. The Paragon of the Mists title is now account wide. Cataclysm Classic
      Fixed an issue where boosted characters were not properly learning their class and spec’s Armor Proficiency. Fixed a bug with achievement completion tracking for the meta-achievement Classic Dungeonmaster. Death Knight Brutal Gladiator gear on the Outland Armor Quartermasters in Stormwind and Orgrimmar has been discounted so that their prices match those of other classes. Mor’norokk the Hateful can no longer be erroneously killed by players on the quest “On Second Thought, Take One Prisoner”. Fixed an issue that was removing the Dormus’ Rage aura from players who were teleported to Feralas.

      Blizzard has further updated the Skyriding Talent tree in the latest War Within Alpha build. Find out what's new!
      Here is a preview of the tree from last week's War Within Alpha Build. You've had all the Skyriding abilities listed at the top and were given just enough "Dragon Power" to unlock all the talents with two "free" choice nodes located on the right side.

      Skyriding Talent Tuning in War Within Alpha Build 54774
      Some Skyriding talents have been updated in the latest build:

      Ground Skimming- When skyriding near the ground, you regenerate 1 Vigor every 30 15 sec. This effect does not occur while affected by Thrill of the Skies unless Swift Skimming is learned. Bronze Timelock- Mark a waypoint on your positional timeline. Use Bronze Rewind to rewind to this location. Can only be used in the Dragon Isles. Whirling Surge- Spiral forward a great distance, increasing speed. Whirling Surge evades Wingshredders and dismounts airborne enemy players Skyriding Basics- While falling from a high location, your mount extends its wings to propel you both forward. Pointing yourself downward grants more momentum. Evening out can transfer that momentum forward. Pointing yourself upward slows you down. When at your slowest, you will start to fall slowly toward the ground. You also gain access to the following abilities: Surge Forward Flap forward. Surge Forward evades Scalechillers, Scalechargers, and other obstacles encountered in time trials and races. Skyward Ascent Flap upward. Aerial Halt- Flap back, reducing forward movement. After activating Aerial Halt, experience a brief moment of weightlessness as the effects of gravity are reduced for 4 sec. Skyriding Proficiency
      In the most recent TWW Alpha build, the Skyriding tree has changed a bit. Dragon Power [PH] has been renamed to Skyriding Proficiency and the tree layout has been simplified. It now has 6 tiers.
      You will gain Skyriding Proficiency as you level up, but we currently cannot create low level characters on the PTR, only pre-made Level 70 template characters, so we cannot tell at which level you will gain Skyriding Proficiency.

      Skyriding Talents in War Within
      The tree now has 6 tiers of power (down from 9)
      Tier 1
      Take to the Skies - Your Vigor is increased to 4. Tier 2
      Dynamic Stretching - Your Vigor regeneration rate is accelerated to 1 vigor every 25 sec while grounded. Second Wind - Reach within for untapped reserves and instantly generate 1 Vigor. Max 3 charges. Instant, 3 min recharge. Thrill Chaser - Thrill of the Skies generates 1 Vigor every 10 sec. Tier 3
      Restorative Travels - Your Vigor regenration rate is accelerated to 1 Vigor every 0 sec while grounded. Tier 4
      Aerial Halt - Flap back, reducing forward movement. after activating Aerial Halt, experience a brief moment of weightlessness as the effects of gravity are reduced for 4 sec. Instant, 10 sec cooldown Ground Skimming - When skyriding near the ground, you regenerate 1 Vigor every 15 sec. Tier 5
      Dragonriding Learner - Your Vigor is increased to 5. Tier 6
      Beyond Infinity - Your Vigor is increased to 6. Yearning for the Sky - Your Vigor reeneration rate is accelerated to 1 Vigor every 15 sec while grounded. At Home Aloft - Thrill of the Skies generates 1 Vigor every 5 sec. On the ride side, you have choice nodes that are free and do not cost Skyriding Proficiency.
      The first choice node lets you enable/disable Riding Along. The second choice nodes lets you pick between Whirling Surge and Lightning Rush.

      Reddit user Maleficent-Till6391 maxed out their cloak's stamina in MoP Remix and discovered it can't exceed 200K.
      The Cloak of Infinite Potential isn't as limitless as advertised. One player managed to collect 200,000 Stamina and used theInfinite Thread of Stamina, but it didn’t increase their Stamina further. The cloak should theoretically be limited only by the 64-bit signed integer limit, which is 9,223,372,036,854,775,807.

      For those interested, here are the player's cloak stats:

      200,000 Stamina translates to 13,704,440 health. With the Bone Shield and MoP Remix consumable, it increases to 15,667,882, according to the OP.
      Here are the player's stats with and without the cloak.

      With a minor 10.2.7 fix we move right into the Remix stuff, as there's improvements to rare elite respawn and treasure, quests, dungeons and the open world. We also have Cataclysm Classic fixes, as honor vendors return, the high level PvP gear gets downgraded, quests get improved and more.
