Wowhead Weekly #66 covers the new Legion Alpha build, including new models like Mage Tier 19 and the spider mount, new artifact weapon models, and Rogue Order Hall updates. Recent news also includes a new Warcraft Movie commercial and Cataclysm Timewalking.
Even more Legion Artifact Weapons have alternate '06' styles and tints in the latest Alpha build, including a celestial Felo'melorn and severed-head Skull of the Man'ari. Perhaps these styles will be available mid-Legion, as incentives to keep players exploring and collecting appearances.

Several weapons have additional datamined appearances, implying there may be six available artifact styles.
Will this be a special sixth style players can unlock from difficult content (perhaps Challenge Modes)?
