Here's a look at the new/removed abilities for Demo in recent builds:

Hearthstone Top Decks Acquired by ZAM Network - Fri, 16 Feb 2018 17:58:51 -0600 We're happy to announce that the ZAM Network has acquired Hearthstone Top Decks and will be working with Hearthhead to create some fantastic Hearthstone content.
Hearthstone Top Decks is a fantastic resource for Hearthstone for Decks and Guides including Meta decks, deck guides and community decks. Earlier this week, Hearthstone Top Decks announced that it has been acquired by the ZAM Network. The ZAM Network also owns Wowhead and we want to welcome them to the family!
<This is going to be a bit of a meta discussion, and not something focused on World of Warcraft, as a whole. Those of you who are active on the forums and among the other World of Warcraft communities will probably have more thoughts on this than those who visit the forums on rare occasion.>
Battle for Azeroth: New Formula for Calculating Ability Damage - Thu, 15 Feb 2018 09:03:52 -0600 In alpha build 26010, we found that Melee & Hunter abilities which were previously based on weapon damage now instead use attack power as a direct coefficient. On live, attack power based abilities ignore weapon damage entirely, raising questions of whether weapons would scale poorly for everyone without greatly increased stats, weapon damage would no longer exist, or some other unknown change.

Dungeon Experience Hotfixes - Wed, 14 Feb 2018 18:27:14 -0600 Blizzard has changed experience gains through a hotfix earlier today. The experience awarded for queueing Normal dungeons has been increased, while the experience gains while grouping with a higher level player have been reduced.
From WoW’s earliest days, we’ve always had to take steps to limit experience gains for characters when grouped with someone of a drastically higher level. We recently became aware of a bug introduced in 7.3.5:
Blizzard on Hunter Pet Specialization Changes in Battle for Azeroth - Tue, 13 Feb 2018 22:59:00 -0600 Blizzard has shared thoughts on Hunter Pet Specialization changes in Battle for Azeroth. On the Alpha, we datamined many changes including abilities related to each specialization, new specializations for certain pet families, and new utility abilities for families that were previously lacking them.
However, some confusion stemmed from using terminology that was previously associated with a DPS/health disparity among pets in previous expansions.
First Aid Potential Revamp or Removal in Battle for Azeroth - Tue, 13 Feb 2018 20:21:15 -0600 First Aid may be undergoing a big revamp, or even removal, in Battle for Azeroth. While you can still train First Aid on the alpha, datamining suggests that First Aid is being removed and the bandages are added to the Tailoring profession.
Check out more datamined spell changes in the 26032 Class and Profession Updates Blog.
Many First Aid achievements are now categorized as Legacy instead of Professions.
Battle for Azeroth 26032 Class and Profession Changes - Tue, 13 Feb 2018 15:26:42 -0600 Battle for Azeroth 26032 has many class changes, including new Demonology Warlock talents, as well as more Profession Squish details. Also it looks like Tailoring may be replacing First Aid.

Updated Warlock Spell Effects - Tue, 13 Feb 2018 15:00:51 -0600 Legion started a process of updating all class animations. It started all the way back in 7.0 with a few classes, mostly melee, receiving new Casting Animations. Afterwards, during patch 7.3, most casters received updated animations, but a couple were left off, one of those being Destruction Warlocks.
Updated for the new Drain Life and Incinerate animations on the new 2/13 alpha build!
We've also covered new talent visuals in a separate post!
