World First All Achievements Completed in Legion by Xirev - Fri, 23 Mar 2018 20:43:39 -0500 WoW has a lot of achievements that are incredibly hard to get. But to collect every single achievement before a new patch of even expansion hits is truly a feat in itself. Completing all achievements means you need to do things like reach Prestige 25, collect 300 toys and mounts, finish the most recent raid, Antorus the Burning Throne on Mythic Difficulty, and win 5000 PvP Pet Battles.
Note that the following sets are marked as cosmetic, implying they can be transmogged by any armor type, but are also common-quality armor which usually means it can't be transmogged. The alpha data is likely incomplete.

Uldir Raid Mail Armor Models - Thu, 22 Mar 2018 21:32:51 -0500 We have our first look at armor from the Uldir raid - the mail set. These sets are not class-specific, so they can be used by Hunters and Shaman.
As a reminder, Blizzard is moving away from traditional tier in Battle for Azeroth. There will be no class-specific tier bonuses or class-themed armor sets per raid. Instead there will be armor sets reflecting the lore and story of each zone. More details in this post.
Uldir, Halls of Control is a titan facility found in Nazmir, Zandalar.

Ready for War Quests on Battle for Azeroth Alpha 26231 - Wed, 21 Mar 2018 21:54:00 -0500 New quest chapters have been added to the Battle for Azeroth alpha. These Ready for War quests take you into enemy territory to give you a taste of the other faction's storyline. Story spoilers in post.
In Battle for Azeroth build 26231, some Alliance quests were open, primarily in Nazmir, for the Ready for War achievement. We learned at the recent Battle for Azeroth Q&A that this campaign was tied to the BFA champions and currency War Resources.
In Battle for Azeroth, any crafts you’ve learned in the past will still be there and not need to be re-learned, with the exception of First Aid. Tailoring and Alchemy crafts, bandages, and anti-venoms that used to be in First Aid will have to be re-learned.
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.
These sets are not available to purchase via vendors, which still require a PvP season rank, because they share appearances with the current Season 7 set.
Check out all these appearances in the Transmog Set Database.
Here's a forum post explaining the situation:
Hey All -
I am posting this here instead of the arena forums for visibility.
