As of right now, it appears all the gear levels are the same at 860, but whether this is going to change in the future or the gear level is a placeholder remains to be seen. Would be interesting if there's a plethora of World Bosses to choose from in one tier, instead of the typical 1-2 per tier World Bosses. 

Voiceovers [May contain spoilers]  

Archmage Khadgar Voiceover

Khadgar may take a more active role in Legion, in Warlords he was more lending a helping hand to both Alliance and Horde. He may be taking the Kirin Tor reins as well.

The Lich King

It's not clear if Bolvar Fordragon is in command of being the Lich King or if Ner'zhul is controlling him. "Tell them only that the Lich King is dead. And that Bolvar Fordragon… died with him." —Bolvar Fordragon to Tirion Fordring

The Ashbringer

(Voice possibly coming from within Ashbringer)

This could be Alexandros Mograine, father of Darion Mograine. Alexandros is the original wielder of Ashbringer, so he could be part of the Ashbringer.

Transmog Collection Update

Blizzard needs us to help find old items that might have been misplaced in the transition to the collection UI. For instance, if an item from Old Naxx-40 is marked as a World Drop, but it's no longer obtainable. Zorbix goes back and forth on details with forum posters on the Beta thread: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/20745025114#1

Hello,

As you may have seen in-game, the new Transmogrification Collection (the appearance tab) displays appearances not only for items/appearances you already own, but also all of the ones you haven’t collected yet. However, if you haven’t collected an item, and it can no longer be obtained (such as rewards from quests that have been removed, or limited time items), it shouldn’t show up in the window, since you’d never able to “fill in” that spot in the collection.

That said, there’s a lot of items in WoW, and we could use your help making sure we got things right! If you happen to notice an item in the Appearance Collection tab that players can no longer obtain, let us know by posting below. Specific item names or links to database sites are preferred. 

Basically, if an unobtainable item is displayed in the collection window and you don’t have it already, it’s a bug, and we need to know what that item is in order to be able to fix it. (Note that if you have an item, it should be displayed in the Appearances collection even if it’s no longer obtainable.)

Also, the change for Mail and Plate is being tested so that you can possibly still use that armor to transmog in the future. For instance, a level 30 Mail chest that used to drop for a Warrior will be changed to Plate from now on. So a Hunter using that Mail chest won't be able to transmog into that look anymore BUT there may be plans to add them in the future for transmog purposes. 

Do you have Transmog items you’ve been holding onto for a very long time? Are you a Hunter, Shaman, Warrior or Paladin? In order to streamline leveling we made a change to armor proficiencies: 
Hunters and Shaman can now equip Mail armor from level 1 (down from level 40).
Warriors and Paladins can now equip Plate armor from level 1 (down from level 40).

In order to facilitate this we’ve also changed some lower level items from Leather to Mail, and some Mail Items to Plate, to match their intended class at those levels.

Example: 
Pre-Legion: A Level 30 Mail Chestpiece drops from a dungeon that has Strength on it (intended for Paladins or Warriors)
Legion: That same Chestpiece would be plate, since Warriors and Paladins use Plate starting at level 1.

While we think this change is positive for the game and for new characters, this could lead to some appearances being un-transmoggable for these classes. We’d like some help in identifying changed items that were once Leather or Mail, and there are no other items with a similar appearance or color shift for their original armor type. We’re also looking for items that can no longer be obtained in Legion, but have a unique appearance that cannot be found anywhere else in the game.

Basically, if an item you have has been converted to another armor type and there’s no other item like it, let us know below. Even if it’s not a bug, we’ll see if it’s something we can add in the future.

I enjoy walks on the beach, craft beer and World of Warcraft. Unfortunately only two of those work well together. I love Warcraft Lore, playing the game with friends and having a good time ;)
