Many of these appearances have been in our modelviewer for months, so we've posted a refresher on what these look like! You can preview these in our Artifact Calculator or in our modelviewer--preview them on your character in the Dressing Room.

Hidden Artifact Appearance Update - Tue, 01 Nov 2016 18:32:46 -0500 Blizzard has written a lengthy post explaining the design process behind hidden Artifact Apperances, how the Arms Warrior quest Secrets of the Axes works, and hints on how to acquire the Frost Death Knight Artifact. In addition, some tweaks will be made to existing elaborate hidden appearance unlocks to make the process smoother.
The Frost Death Knight item, Runes of the Darkening, is a "tied" to an upcoming World Boss--so likely a drop.
Players who have acquired a Virtual Ticket or BlizzCon ticket will log in to find Knight-Captain Murky and Legionnaire Murky in their Battle Pet Collection! You will get both pets regardless of your faction in your pet journal but you can only summon the one appropriate to your current character's faction.
These pets are Humanoids and have special abilities Mrrrgglllrggghl, For the Alliance! and For the Horde!
