Fisherfriend of the Isles - Ilyssia of the Waters Found - Tue, 13 Jun 2017 19:59:55 -0500 Earlier this year, we previewed new fishing currency and fishing bobbers, which were datamined in Patch 7.2. Players found out that these would be awarded for getting Best Friend with each of the Fishing Masters in the Fisherfriend of the Isles.
It's been speculated that the fishing bobbers were coming in 7.2.5, and Zharon from the Secret Finding Discord community had found the first Fishing Master after Patch 7.2.5 went live on NA servers and notified Wowhead as to the discovery.
Check out all the new models for these sets on our Tier 20 Armor Sets Page.
Along with the launch of Patch 7.2.5 we are making tuning adjustments to a number of soon-to-be-available Tier 20 set bonuses. The target is as usual, relative power balance between Tier 20 set bonuses of different classes/specs and with the previous tier's set bonuses.
An upcoming hotfix will reduce the amount of time to research Artifact Knowledge between 26 and 40 to 4 hours each. This will reduce the total time from 42 days to 56 hours. It will hopefully be live in the next day.
After one character hits AK 40, the rest can buy Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I-VII for the rest of your characters.
