Players that have at least 35 traits on their Artifact (Power Unbound) can work on solo challenges for an Artifact Appearance. We have guides to beating the challenges for all 36 specs as well as detailed comments on all challenge quest pages.
We see an announcement that starts paving the way to Classic servers, the Battle.net Restoration feature makes its debut, we get a whole lot of trolling with the Rise of the Zandalari, and some of the first World Firsts happened on this week!
There will be a new Pet Battle currency! At the Battle for Azeroth Media Day, the developers talked about the charms with Hazelnuttygames and clarified that the existing Pet Charms can be used to buy old pet items.
New pet battle mechanics are on the way like Weather effects. Pet Battle World Quests are on the way and these will scale to the highest level pet on your team.

Blood Zul Reborn Model for Uldir Raid - Wed, 25 Apr 2018 03:12:17 -0500 Zul, Reborn is a boss in the Uldir raid in Battle for Azeroth. His regular model, which we see while questing in Zuldazar, has been known for a while. However we recently found an alternate Blood model which is likely used in Uldir.
In the Zuldazar storyline, we must prevent Zul's coup for the Zuldazar throne. Along the way we save King Rastakhan from an assassination attempt and try to prevent Zul from raising the deceased kings of the Zandalari Empire for his rule.
Blizzard has posted that upcoming beta changes are on the way to Frost Death Knights, Unholy Death Knights, and Protection Warriors - but otherwise they are finished with severely overhauling talents at this stage of BFA development.
I wouldn't call anything "locked" during testing and active development.
