Legendaries that provide a strong throughput increase are being toned down, and those that have more niche uses are being given another pass. In blue post follow ups, Lore stated that if Blizzard were to redo the system now, they'd likely only have utility legendaries.
Diligent players will complete Soul Prism of the Illidari soon; the new follow-up quest we datamined is which rewards ilvl 870 gloves or shoulders. For this quest you will need to kill Helya in Trial of Valor; lore spoilers under the button.
While tracking the master's physical body proved challenging, we were able to locate it in the Nighthold of Suramar.

7.1.5 PTR: Glowcap Festival Micro-Holiday - Tue, 13 Dec 2016 02:04:00 -0600 The next holiday for testing on the 7.1.5 PTR is the Glowcap Festival. This is a throwback to the Sporeggar reputation in Zangarmarsh.
Event Description: "Today, the sporelings of Sporeggar in Zangarmarsh hold their annual mushroom festival. Help them keep the great Fshoo alive as long as possible!"
Fshoo will periodically spawn at the center of the town and become harder to heal over time due to Fshoo Grow. There are several items you can loot to heal up Fshoo:
Balloons are everywhere in Azeroth and hot air balloons are particularly notable as a form of transportation added in Pandaria. Previously, you could take a relaxing hot air balloon ride in The Suffering of Shen-zin Su and Fisherman's Tale. Balloons are also non-battle companions like Darkmoon Balloon, Green Balloon, and Yellow Balloon.
The Story of Odyn & Helya (Trial of Valor) [Lore] - Sat, 10 Dec 2016 17:29:22 -0600 Now that players have spent some time in Trial of Valor, we asked Nobbel87 to explain the lore and story of the zone for Wowhead. If you like these sorts of videos and want to see more on upcoming Legion topics, let us know in the comments!
Patch 7.1 introduced the Trial of Valor raid, the conclusion of the story between Odyn and Helya. Before we talk about the raid, let’s first talk about the history between these two characters for those that missed out.
Raid testing on December 13th will cover Elisande and Gul'dan; this is important because Gul'dan, the final boss of Nighthold, was not open for testing during the beta period for Legion. This is the first time Gul'dan will be available for testing.
