Changes coming to combat rezzes in M+ dungeons in 7.3.5. They'll function more like brezzes in raids, where there's a shared timer for charges. This will probably decrease the number brezzes available for your M+ runs if you normally run with multiple classes that can brez.

I hadn't seen this mentioned elsewhere but this year's Xmas... excuse me, Winter Veil presents have two new-to-me toys, one of which awards a Feat of Strength achievement so it's almost certainly new to this year.

I ran in my first Legion Heroic yesterday: The Seat of the Triumvirate.

Following up a discussion in the pets topic: The tank was a Bear Druid who resembled Ghoselle in that they were good at their job, and that they rushed from one spot to the next. I assume they did this because they wanted to keep their Rage up. Fortunately, as a Monk I could roll to keep from falling behind.

The reward for completing the Crest of Knowledge quest is supposed to be access to World Quests in western Mac'Aree. I completed the quest (putting the gem into the slot in the Vindicaar, watched it turn gold), but I don't see any new quests in that region.

My question: Where are these new WQs? Did Blizzard relent and give them to everyone so the Crest of Knowledge quest is no longer necessary? Do they only show up after a server reset or something like that? Or was this just a big tease to make everyone watch a L'ura cinematic?

I think if the Crest of Knowledge quest does unlock any WQs, it's very few. (ie. maybe one quest per spawn.) But now your disco ship is disco-er, and you got 300 veiled argunite out of the deal. :D? :D?

It looks like in 7.3.5 we will be able to trade 175 wakening essence to make a legendary.

What I get from that is do not upgrade your last legendary so you can keep getting wakening essence.

The thing you use to upgrade legendaries it sounds like will just be a thing you buy now.

I approve of this change.

That is now fixed; waking essences will drop for everyone at 110 as of a very recent hotfix.  However, stockpiled essences will have diminshed value when 7.3.5 hits, because:

We'll also be dramatically increasing both the number of Essences required to purchase tokens and the rate at which you gain them in Patch 7.3.5. The overall time investment needed to purchase a token will stay roughly the same, but this will minimize the benefits of stockpiling Essences ahead of time.
Note: Emissary bags earned prior to the release of 7.3.5 will still give pre-7.3.5 numbers of Essences. There is no benefit to saving Emissary bags until afer the patch.
So, I guess it's perhaps actually better to do quest turnins before 7.3.5 hits, unless you really don't care about the legendaries you would be upgrading.  It doesn't seem likely that 7.3.5 will hit tomorrow given that they're still messing with this stuff, but the 16th seems fairly likely.

Also, while stockpiling emissary bags may not be useful, stockpiling two emissary turnins before the patch hits may help.

This appears to be by a factor of six.  Synthesizing a new legendary will cost 1000 essences, and upgrading them will cost 300.  Essence income after 7.3.5 will increase by a factor of six to match.

Andius is correct; delaying emissary turnins should work (Blizzard doesn't care because you can only do that up to two emissaries); stockpiling boxes should not.
