Quote from: WarcraftDevs
The ceiling on Mythic Keystone rewards will go up to 15 the week of Dec. 5, when the Mythic difficulty of Antorus opens. If you did a Mythic Keystone 11-15 the prior week, that effort will be reflected in your weekly chest on Dec. 5.
So when Antorus opens for normal/heroic, that is also the week when it becomes useful to push past +10s for better loot in the next week's cache.

Looks like the Anniversary event this year will bring back some old world bosses, some of which have unique transmog appearances.

The loot list above is apparently not exhaustive. I got Mana-Frosted Pauldrons on my shaman, which match one of the BC dungeon sets.

Also, it looks like only one dragon of nightmare is up each day and which one it is rotates. Today it's Taerar.

Apparently there's no new pet for this anniversary, either in the gift box or as a loot drop. (I purchased the Corgi Pup at some previous event.)

It's Pilgrim's Bounty!

* No big updates for 2017 except that, like other holidays, the holiday gear can be transmogged during the holiday.
* The Spirit of Sharing buff stacks with the buff from the Anniversary item for fast rep gains during the holiday.
* Not as important now, but Pilgrim's Bounty remains a great way to quickly skill up Cooking to 300+ on alts.

The Bronze-tinted shades you can buy with timewarped badges right now have been confirmed to be transmoggable only during the Anniversary Holiday, presumably because too much fun was detected.

A reminder: along with the new raid, this Tuesday will bring a new repeatable quest to upgrade legendaries to item level 1000, picked up from the Dalaran blacksmith.  You can get a small jump on the first upgrade by saving Sunday's and Monday's emissary quests to turn in on Tuesday.  A reminder of the sources from last time around (from this wowhead comment):

* 5 for daily heroic dungeon
* 20 for weekly mythic+ cache (any level)
* 4-7 for emissaries
* 3-5 per current-tier raid boss (only one difficulty per week)

The catch-up mechanic is real, yo.

I decided to level an alt over the long weekend. I really like what they've done with the animations and effects for melee shaman. Lots of storm noises and bursts. I went from having AP items give 100-175 each to BILLIONS. OK, then. All the traits, all at once. (*)

There was definitely the challenge of suddenly facing 110 mobs with sub-110 gear; fortunately I had a lot of the 880 tokens so was able to swap out all but two gear pieces. Weapons still lag because empty sockets but that'll get fixed once I get to the point I can buy 910s.

I found myself intensely disliking the shaman solo questline. It's a LOT of flying over boring empty zones and then pointless fights filled with annoying trash. I can see how it's conceptually and story-wise appropriate and possibly interesting but the annoyance factor outweighed that for me by a lot.

(*) From this perspective I'm kind of sad that the weapon traits end up all being rolled in at once and all I'm left to do is grind AP for an occasional stat click. I feel like the artifact trees were one of the best things about this expansion, marred by the mechanics of AK (ptui, good riddance) and the idiotic decision to make everything into unique non-stackable tokens that require constant spec-switching. If AP had been implemented as a pool that you could allocate to things that enhance your play style or that helped with particular encounters I think it would have been more fun and less homogeneous. And, frankly, less boring.

This kind soul wrote a blog post mapping how to get to the various bosses in Antorus, since it's easy to get lost in there with all the transporters and stuff

We reached the artifact knowledge cap of 55 today, in case anyone's been waiting for that.
