Patch 7.3 Lore Cutscenes (Spoilers) - Wed, 02 Aug 2017 20:47:02 -0500 Several Argus cutscenes were added to the 7.3 PTR this week, providing more context and lore tibdits for the Argus Questline. Below are videos and transcripts of the three new cutscenes, as well as a lore analysis using information from World of Warcraft Chronicle Volume 1.
As this is a Patch 7.3 PTR story post, there are spoilers within.
This cutscene takes place at 37:38 in our Argus Questline Part 1 Video.
Aggramar: What is your bidding master? Sargeras: The circle nears completion.
These items can be gifted and also purchased separately--but they're more expensive when purchased separately.
Blizzard Prepare to meet our new deviously adorable pet and mount: Twilight and the Luminous Starseeker, now available in the Blizzard Shop.You’ll be dazzled by these two hue-shifting beasts as they join you in your adventures no matter where they take you.
Don't forget to check out our main datamining post with spell changes, new profession items, and the quest source for the legendary Insignia of the Grand Army. We also datamined a new color-changing cat mount and pet which may be hitting live servers sooner than 7.3!
As this is a matching mount and pet combination and their models go above and beyond by cycling through three colors like Enchanted Fey Dragon, one could speculate it's from a special type of upcoming promotion or charity drive.
Here you'll find a list of hotfixes that address various issues related to World of Warcraft: Legion.

Please keep in mind that some issues cannot be addressed without a client-side patch update.
Patch 7.3 Mana Ray Mounts - Tue, 01 Aug 2017 14:26:00 -0500 Continuing with our Patch 7.3 Mounts preview, today we're looking at the Mana Rays. These mounts could be distant relations of the Purple Riding Nether Ray from Burning Crusade, similar to how Talbuks are present on Outland and Argus.
Five of the Mana Rays are listed as drops from the continent Argus. We are unsure if they could be from invasions, rare spawns, bosses, chests, or via other means.
