As a long-time writer of over two dozen guides on the site, I've seen what works and what doesn't in the guide system. I've looked at every single guide published at some point or another to see how other writers chose to display the guide information.
Mage Tower Now Active Again on NA Realms - Fri, 30 Mar 2018 18:59:02 -0500 The Mage Tower Building is now active again on NA realms!

We have guides to beating the challenges for all 36 specs as well as detailed comments on all challenge quest pages.
The Artifact Appearances from the Mage Tower will not be obtainable after Legion, so we are publishing articles reminding players when this building is up as Legion draws to an end.

Daily Quests and Quest Log Changes in Battle for Azeroth - Wed, 28 Mar 2018 21:42:05 -0500 Quests have been the core progression system of World of Warcraft ever since its inception, back in 2004. Blizzard, in order to accommodate and track those, created the Quest Log before the game ever was open to the public. In the beginning, the Quest Log could hold 20 quests, which Blizzard considered a decent amount at the time. Time passed and, with the system becoming bigger and better, the Quest Log capacity was increased to 25 during The Burning Crusade.

World of Warcraft at PAX East 2018 - Wed, 28 Mar 2018 12:16:12 -0500 Blizzard has announced their plans for World of Warcraft at PAX East. Demo stations will be available for the Island Expedition feature and collectors can acquire a limited-edition print of the Burning of Teldrassil.
Blizzard World of Warcraft is headed to PAX East and you’re invited to join us! Whether you’re attending in person or you’re keeping up with all the great PAX coverage from afar, we’ve got you covered. General InformationWhat:
Freehold has traditionally served as a haven for pirates, scoundrels, and those who wish to live free of Kul Tiran control. Now, the Irontide Raiders have brought the city under their harsh rule and are coercing the various pirate crews under their banner.
Today we have datamined the variations for the Alliance Plate set. This set may be unfinished as the BlizzCon concept art and datamined icons show dynamic over-the-shoulder flowing capes, which could take extra time for Blizzard to implement.
Earlier in the Battle for Azeroth alpha, we previewed other Warfronts Sets:
Blood Elf Customization - Golden Eyes and Three New Faces - Tue, 27 Mar 2018 19:05:57 -0500 Battle for Azeroth 26287 adds three new Blood Elf faces and golden glowing eyes, possibly used for extra Blood Elf player customization. These are now up in the Dressing Room as Face customization options!
Edit: Build 26310 adds the three faces with golden eyes as character creation options.
Lady Liadrin in Hearthstone has glowing eyes so perhaps she'll get an update in WoW.
Warcraft Chronicle Volume 3: New Canon Info on Champions of Each Dungeon/Raid - Tue, 27 Mar 2018 15:27:51 -0500 With World of Warcraft Chronicle Volume 3 released today, we're highlighting interesting lore additions.
