With the BfA pre-patch live, it looks like gold missions have been replaced with missions rewarding order hall resources.  Some of these award more order resources than they cost (e.g. 365+365 for 200) but maybe not all of them.  So order halls should be self-sustaining in spite of daily auto-completions going away, but pay attention to costs.

The service window for this Tuesday ends at 6pm eastern.  Patch deployments have at times beat their window by several hours, but an expansion pre-patch is not a great bet for that.
I guess that bet would have paid off after all.  Realms are up, about four hours ahead of schedule.

ETA: but not doing all that well.  I got in fine earlier this afternoon, but right now I think most people can't connect.

Patch notes: https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/news/21959894/battle-for-azeroth-pre-patch-notes

wowhead notes that healthstones no longer share a cooldown with healing pots, which I hadn't seen before.  That's a bonus to warlock raid utility, assuming that healthstones continue to heal for an amount comparable to a healing pot.

A summary of the changes to Legion gold income in the pre-patch (TLDR it's reduced by quite a bit):

https://www.reddit.com/r/woweconomy/comments/8yc6z0/random_beta_stuff_paragon_caches_legion_follower/

Gold missions are in a weird spot; by most people's reporting (and my own occasional checks on the PTR) they don't appear very often, and the amount of base gold you get is down to like 250, but the bonus gold is still 1750g.  Seems like maybe a bug.

According to comments on that post, PvP world quests still seem to reward honor but don't actually flag you for PvP if you have war mode off.  (At least, that's my interpretation of "do not put you into warmode".)  I'll mention again that daily world quest auto-completes are removed on the PTR, so you actually have to go out and do these in order to get the honor rewards. ETA: I tried this; they flag you for five minutes like before, even though they don't put you in war mode.

Outside Azeroth - General Chatter / Re: Pet Battles Have Eaten My Brain

After hearing about the 400 toy pet a couple months ago, I embarked on serious toy collecting. I had 280 toys at that time, mostly picked up from drops, quests or vendors - I did have most of the timewalking ones. Today, I hit 401.

What I did was get the Toy Box Enhanced addon from Curse. It was very useful for sorting uncollected toys by source (e.g.; vendor/drop/quest) and/or expansion.

I also found the Wowhead Zone-by-zone guide useful: http://www.wowhead.com/guide=3605/zone-by-zone-toy-guide. In particular, that guide lists toys that are NOT shown grayed out in the toy box already. There are several toys in that category that only show up in the toy box after obtaining them. Class specific toys seem to be the most common cases. My last two toys were from the Mage-only vendor in Northrend Dalaran.

There is another wowhead guide, http://www.wowhead.com/toy-box-tracking-collection-guide. I did not find its presentation as nice to navigate but YMMV. I did setup a wowhead account to upload my toy list, as this guide suggested, but it did not work for me.

What I did:
- Found the vendors selling toys I did not have. Many of those require rep which I mostly already had.
- Profession toys - mostly engineering - were pretty easy (archaeology aside) though some recipes/ingredients were expensive.
- Bought the toys available on the AH - some were pricey but I have gold on 3 servers and there can be quite a difference between servers.
- Elite grinding on Argus, Draenor and Pandaria. This was the most time consuming part.
- Midsummer Festival - there are about a dozen event toys I did not have, so more to collect when the holidays come back around. Notably, I skipped Darkmoon Faire (10 toys still to collect) as I did not want to invest the time to master all the Faire games needed to get them.
- There were a few quest/achievement toys I did not have - I did the easy ones.

That second link is the same as the first. (I predict that within a few hours, this statement will no longer be true.)
