User Guide Spotlight: Mage Tower Prep by Pelinel - Sat, 07 Jul 2018 19:27:04 -0500 It's time for the fifteenth edition of the guide feature! There are tons of user-submitted guides on Wowhead, and although there are over 2000 guides published on the site right now, it can be tricky to know which have the best information and presentation, especially when there are multiple on the same topic.
As a long-time writer of over two dozen guides, I've seen what works and what doesn't in the guide system.
There are some tuning changes to Concentrated Coolness and Arms Warrior mastery. Old enchants have also received nerfs, and BFA Alchemy recipes have reduced reagents, including the removal of Expulsom from flask recipes.
The Kul Tiran are an Allied Race that will likely be released some time in Battle for Azeroth, along with Zandalari Trolls. We don't know too much about the Kul Tiran Allied Race just yet, but we have summarized all the information we know in the Kul Tiran Allied Race Guide.
