Battle for Azeroth 26287 adds three new Blood Elf faces and golden glowing eyes, possibly used for extra Blood Elf player customization.

Battle for Azeroth 26287 adds a number of pirate-themed cosmetic transmog items! See more items added in the latest build in our database.

Game Director, Ion Hazzikostas, has just posted a reply to a post on the Alpha forums about how offensive cooldowns are now on the GCD in the last alpha build.

In short, many cooldown abilities, like Recklessness, were added to the Global Cooldown, meaning they can't be used together with other abilities since they trigger a global cooldown on use.

Season 6 Elite Ensembles Availability - Wed, 21 Mar 2018 14:09:52 -0500
Blizzard is planning on releasing the S6 Elite Ensembles earlier rather than later via a hotfix - hopefully before the end of Season 7.
