7.2 PTR Development Notes for Build 23657 and Mythic Testing
2017/02/28 at 3:44 PM
Blizzard has posted the overview of what's coming in the next 7.2 PTR build. It seems to be a relatively small build focused around bug testing and tweaks, without new types of content or quests to try out. Over the next week, all Tomb of Sargeras bosses except for Kil'jaeden will be tested on Mythic difficulty as well.
There are some wording changes to
coming in this build; namely they will no longer say they have a chance to grant a legendary, but they will still have a small chance to grant one. In these notes, we also learned a bit more about the gearing system on Broken Isles - the Relinquished tokens won't just have a small chance to reward a legendary, they'll also have a chance to reward good dungeon, raid, or PvP gear too.
Blizzard Posts Feb 23rd: Slot-Specific Legendary Targeting, World Boss Testing, PvP Updates

, Blizzard answered some questions on legendary clarifications, opened up testing on World Bosses, and announced that some PvP changes for 7.2 would be reverted. The "identify legendary" items like
Tabernaccle of Twin Faiths
were scrapped and described as an "experimental concept" in light of the new announcement that droprates and bad luck protection will be calculated by spec, not by class, in 7.2. Blizzard also posted that you can target legendaries for a gear slot in 7.2!
Blizzard Posts: Developer Q&A on February 23rd, Legendary Drop Rate Clarifications, Ending Support for Windows XP
2017/02/17 at 3:07 PM
Our round of Blizzard posts for February 17th includes information on an upcoming Developer Q&A, clarifications on legendary drop rate changes in recent patches, and some PTR clarifications. The biggest takeaway from the legendary post was that the chance to get a legendary does not decrease after your third one - acquiring the third one is at the same chance as acquiring your seventh one, for example.

Legion Legendary Guide
for more details about these types of items.

Legendary Items: Soft Cap Removed, Bad Luck Protection Beyond Four Legendaries
2016/11/24 at 11:26 AM
