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.
