We've just applied a hotfix that allows you to turn in the Kirin Tor Emissary Quest as long as you've completed 1 Kirin Tor World Quest.

Note that the UI may show inconsistent information, but you'll be able to complete the Emissary Quest anyway by heading to Dalaran.

CORRECTION: You do not need to have completed a Kirin Tor World Quest - just go pick up your bag!

For clarity, this is a temporary solution to a problem we will be solving properly before the Kirin Tor emissary comes up again. :)

If your character hadn't already logged in once while the Kirin Tor Emissary was active, you'll need to relog again for credit.

do we still need to complete 'the Fallen Star' Illidan quest line to upgrade our legendaries?


We're not entirely sure how this rumor got started, but it's false - the 7.1.5 Legendary upgrades are not connected to the Illidan chain.

Fire Mage shows 27% damage aura in patch notes, up from 15%. That is INSANE, kills Arcane competitively. Is this correct? TY.


That number includes individual adjustments that weren't part of the aura (but affected the same spells). Unchanged from the latest PTR.

Just got a legendary and its item level 910. Do new ones start at 940 starting next week for Nighthold release?


Correct. Legendaries will only drop at 940 after Nighthold is open. You'll be able to upgrade existing Legendaries at that point as well.

There's a few issues with Compendiums that we're working to fix. Intent is that using one consumes all AK items and work orders.

These fixes are now live. Using a Compendium should finish any Work Orders and bring you to the target AK minus those (now ready) notes.

We generally do not allow abilities with cooldowns over 5 minutes to be used in rated PvP. Shroud was ignoring that restriction.
