Netherlight Crucible Clarifications - Fri, 04 Aug 2017 22:30:09 -0500 Following confusion over the Netherlight Crucible at the Patch 7.3 Q&A, Blizzard has provided some clarifications.
It appears the confusion has stemmed from UI revamps over several builds--for example, the first build had multiple ranks listed for each tier, and these tiers should not have ranks. In addition, several builds did not display the Artifact Levels at which your relic tiers unlocked.
We haven't seen much of Jaina at all in Legion after she passed leadership of the Kirin Tor to Khadgar in Calling of the Council and left on heated terms, but we datamined a Kul Tiras armor set hinting we're returning to her father's kingdom in WoW's future.
Vicious War Fox 7.3 PTR Mount Preview - Fri, 04 Aug 2017 11:15:55 -0500 Today's 7.3 PTR Mount Preview highlights the Vicious War Fox, a new option from the Vicious Saddle received when completing 100 arenas or 40 RBGs in one PvP season.
Every season or so, Blizzard adds more mount options to Vicious Saddle. We're also still waiting for the datamined Vicious War Bear to be added as well to the vendors.
Other PvP updates in Patch 7.3 include new PvP armor appearances and an increased Prestige cap. New to PvP? Check out the Getting Into Legion PvP Guide.

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.

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.

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.
