Some notes on Argus invasion points:

* The design intent of invasion points is that you just zone into one and there will be players there to fight alongside, like the pre-expansion event.  This doesn't seem to work on our realm; if you zone into one alone, you will likely wind up alone or with one other person.  So instead, go to an invasion point, check its name, then search for "invasion" in the group finder (I usually search "other", but you can also try "quests"), and join an auto-accept group for the named point with 5+ people in it.  Don't worry if the group is old or seems to be draining membership; these groups cycle efficiently because invasions reset quickly.  After joining the group, zone in and you should be able to finish the invasion in a few minutes or less.

* Although regular invasion points reset after finishing, you won't get loot by repeating it, so zone out and drop group after finishing it once.

* For greater invasion points, you'll want to do the same thing, but you might also check under "Raids - Legion".

* Regular invasion points are about as rewarding as killing a rare or opening a chest in Argus.  They are mostly a stepping stone to doing a weekly greater invasion point.  Greater invasion point bosses can drop 930+ loot.

* This week, you need 15 argus waystones to do a greater invasion point (you may have gotten enough already from world quests, but will still have to do one regular invasion point for a quest), and can turn in another 15 for some veiled argunite.  Next week, argus waystones are going away and you will just have to complete a quest to do three regular invasion points before doing a greater one.

To me the change is more about getting people to do Regular invasion points by gating the Greater ones behind them, rather an improvement it seems like a step backwards.

wowhead reports that the PTR is up with patch 7.3.2.  The numbering suggests that we will see more 7.3.x patches before the end of the expansion.

It sounds like we will be able to exchange primal sargerite at a vendor on the Vindicaar for ten of any of the new basic mats (cloth, leather, herb, ore), or exchange ten primal sargerite for one new epic gem.  Primal sargerite is currently close to worthless on many servers because there isn't enough demand for primal obliterum (there aren't many new crafted pieces upgradable to 935 and they all sit in tier slots).

The unlocks for Antoran Wastes world quests and for invasion points should now be account-wide.

Today's dev Q+A was mostly about design philosophy, but there were a couple of newsy tidbits:

* Expect the Argus whistle upgrade to become account-wide soon (and perhaps don't fork over 500g for it on any more alts).
* Expect more realm connections to start happening soon; the underlying infrastructure work is pretty much done.

Also, this clip is funny: https://clips.twitch.tv/TriangularBloodyPlumYouWHY

Aman'Thul's vision is marked as legendary but doesn't count against your two legendaries.  You'll be able to upgrade them to 1000, five item levels at a time.  Only four buffs are required to proc the "Empowered by the Pantheon" buff, down from all six.  Aman'Thul's Vision (the arcanocrystal-ish trinket) no longer has a slot but instead acts as a wildcardAny overlap of four buffs appear to activate the proc, even if all four are the same.

These changes grant a lot more flexibility, but the last change mightwill defeat the purpose of discouraging class stacking in high-end mythic raids.  Marking Aman'Thul's Vision as legendary might also confuse people at first.
