7.3 Updated Spell Animations - Arcane, Fire, and Frost Mage - Wed, 05 Jul 2017 11:57:50 -0500 Patch 7.3 introduces updated animations for casters! While not all are complete, today we are previewing the updated Arcane, Fire, Frost Mage animations. We've used Inky Black Potion to make the effects pop more, and the Darkmoon Faire is in town if you'd like to acquire your own potion!
Here is the full list of casters receiving animations in 7.3:
With the NA reset having already taken place and the EU reset looming close, the stalemate has been broken and Method has claimed the World First Fallen Avatar on Mythic Difficulty. All that remains for Method is the end boss, Kil'Jaeden.
Thanks to Raider.io, we've updated our Front Page with the progress of the World First Race. In addition, heading to a Boss Guide page, will show the World Firsts for that boss.
Pop Culture Flavor Text References in Legion Legendaries - Tue, 04 Jul 2017 09:36:13 -0500 At the recent Class Design Reddit AMA, we finally learned the secret of Sephuz.

7.3 Mount Preview - Shackled Ur'zul and Vile Fiend - Mon, 03 Jul 2017 14:04:26 -0500 Many new mounts are on the way in Patch 7.3 and today we're starting off our mount video previews today with the creepy Shackled Ur'zul and Vile Fiend. Currently both these mounts have 'PH' as their drop location, but one could speculate that these mounts will probably drop from somewhere on Argus.
Formed from the tormented bodies and souls of fallen members of the Army of the Light, the Ur'zul is both fascinating and horrifying.
Yrelka in Patch 7.3 - Main Universe Yrel? - Mon, 03 Jul 2017 04:23:28 -0500 The Patch 7.3 PTR adds the NPC Yrelka, who bears more than a passing similarity to Exarch Yrel from Warlords of Draenor. Could they be related?
While their hairstyles are different, both NPCs are female draenei in positions of power (Exarch/Commander), wearing Paladin tier relevant to their expansion, and share the same basic audio files voiced by Erin Fitzgerald. Yrelka wears armor that heavily resembles Mythic Tier 21 Paladin Armor, but the boots, belts, and gloves are different.

Patch 7.3 is currently on the PTR. Make sure to get caught up with our coverage:
Patch 7.3 will take us to Argus, one of the biggest Legion base of operations in the Universe, and with it, there are new raw materials and knowledge to be learn. Overall, all professions seem to be receiving a new tier of craftable items like Fiendish Spaulders and Fiendish Shoulderguards, which uses new materials found only in Argus. Likely those will replace the current craftables and will have their item levels increase in a manner like we have today.
