The Stabilized Titan Essence to upgrade legendary items to 970 will still be consumed on use, right?


This is correct. That upgrade item should not be different than the upgrade from 910 to 940.

Crafted items seem to be scaling to 900 ilvl instead of 885 like the patch notes say - intended?


Correct. We'll have a complete hotfixes update later today with new hotfixes such as this one.

Will I be able to take 910 legendary to 970, or from 910 to 940 to 970?


The new quest will take all Legion legendaries to item level 970.

Old legendary upgrade quest (910 -> 940) is gone, no longer in log, probably lost progress. NPC no longer offers quest.


The new quest (available when Tomb opens next week) takes items directly to 970, entirely replacing the old one.

Any word on when we are going to know what the Guldan changes are? Would love to know before raid tonight.


These hotfixes are not live yet, but they're mainly a small decrease to Gul'dan's health to offset changes to some items and set bonuses.

This is now live - Gul'dan's health has been reduced by 3% on Heroic and Mythic difficulties.

Additionally, the damage of Gul'dan's Fel Scythe, Krosus' Searing Brand, and several of Star Augur's abilities has been reduced by 15%.

Hotfix now live: Draught of Souls' damage is reduced by 20% for Arms Warriors and 15% for Fury (was previously reduced by 40% for each)

To be clear: this means Draught of Souls will now deal more damage for those specs. This is not an additional nerf.
