The reward for this week's "do four mythic dungeons" quest is pretty generous for the current point in raid progression, at least for those who have been doing normal-mode raiding.  After 8/9N on week one and 9/9N+1/9H on week two, I got a heroic Tomb item, which had item level 925 without warforging.  (The base item level of heroic Tomb items is more likely to be 915, but items from Kil'Jaeden's heroic loot table start at 925.)

[ETA: I also got a heroic Tomb item on my DH, who hasn't done any raiding in Tomb, so there doesn't seem to be any raiding requirement.]

Writhing Essences also drop 4 or 5 from the bosses in ToS in LFR


Edit: The Pillars of Creation quest was giving credit on Wednesday maybe they hot fixed it?

Edit 2: Looks like they where http://www.wowhead.com/news=266649/blizzard-posts-june-28th-legion-season-3-cutoffs-pillars-of-creation-hotfix-7-3-

The bosses in LFR did not drop off bosses I had killed on normal.

The conversion of Writhing Essences to currency solved most of the edge cases with upgrading legendaries, but there is still a gotcha: if you don't have the quest (Unsettled Power) in your log, you won't earn Writhing Essences from any source.  I didn't have it my log (I guess I forgot to pick it up again after the last turnin) and missed out on the 20 essences from the mythic+ cache this week; fortunately I noticed before running a heroic and doing the daily emissary quest.

I ticketed to see if I could get the essences retroactively, but the response was that they won't fix this problem via ticketing any more (they did for the first week).  It's not a big deal for me since I'm going on turnin number five and only use three legendaries regularly, but I thought it was worth a note--make sure to always pick up Unsettled Power after turning it in.

Two minor things I had not noticed before:

1. The bloods vendor in Dalaran now sells an "Abundant Order Resources Cache" much more rewarding per blood than the smaller one. It's also BOA and a great way to get your alts over the early drought. Or if you don't feel like grinding the 10k and 15k for the last couple order hall upgrades you can now just buy it.

There's some math to be done here about the value of bloods this way since you can convert order resources into gold via missions once or twice a day but I'm too lazy to do that math.

2. This week the Darkmoon Faire has the fireworks display at the top of each hour. It's silly, but I like the animation.

According to the tooltips, you get 4000 order resources for 20 blood, which is the same 200 per blood that you would get from the smaller cache.

Based on some comments I saw on Wow Forums, it looks like BT Timewalking uses the old traditional raid lockouts instead of the modern loot locks, so be careful pugging it if you were planning to.

If you are doing the timewalking BT raid you may want to stop in Shatt first and pick up the quest for "Disturbance Detected: Black Temple" if you are interested in the 500 timewalking badgers.

I've also heard tell there's now a tw-badge-buyable toy that will open a portal to (old) BT if you are on a character that never got/no longer has the medallion of karabor. But I haven't found that yet.

The command center will come up soon (it's 92% built) with the buff that lets you get a free legendary piece of follower equipment.
It's doing so again (95% built right now).

Blizzard claims the Black Temple timewalking lockout issue is fixed, and also that the weekly world quest boss in Tomb (Dresanoth) is fixed so that you can fight him normally instead of killing him with AOE spells.

We should get an achievement for killing the imaginary boss before it was fixed.

Or maybe a FoS that they remove next week.

There already is a feat of strength.  You just can't see it.

FWIW, the World Quest Group Finder mod has been updated. It requires a few more clicks to fit with Blizzard's guidelines, but it's still faster and more reliable than Blizzard's own "right-click on the quest name" mechanism.

The only problem I have with group-finding is that you can be dumped into a PvP server without warning, but I suppose that's been an issue since cross-realm group finding became available a few expansions ago.
I discovered just last week that there's a WQGF option that skips the PvP servers. Finding a group has never been smoother!

For what it's worth, I think the default group finder automatically deflags you once you drop group from a PvP server.  That change went through a few weeks ago.
