September 23rd Hotfixes - Major Class Tuning for Emerald Nightmare
Blizzard has posted a huge round of hotfixes after analyzing the data from the first few days of Emerald Nightmare and Season 1 PvP. As per the Developer Notes:
As we discussed last week, we’ve been gathering a massive amount of data based on how each spec has been performing in this first week of raids and Mythic Keystone dungeons, so that we can make a number of tuning changes with next week’s realm maintenance. The overall goal of these changes is to buff up some underperforming specs while also reining in a couple of over-performers, without dramatically changing anyone’s playstyle or causing them to feel as though the spec they chose to focus on became the “wrong choice.”
All of these class changes will be applied during the next scheduled weekly maintenance period in each region. Note that there are also a number of PvP-specific changes, which are noted separately below.

September 16th Hotfixes - Tank Damage and AoE Nerfs
The latest round of Legion hotfixes are up! Of particular note:
Most abilities used by Tank specializations have had their damage reduced by 10%.
Havoc and Windwalker burst AoE was proven to be too strong.
Several followers have had the effectiveness of their abilities reduced against players.
Legion foods and drinks should now restore twice as much health and mana.

Sept 15th Hotfixes, Class Balance Update, 7.1 PTR Dungeon/Raid Testing Plans, Honor Talents in 7.1
Legion Developer Q&A
last week, Ion Hazzikostas talked about upcoming hotfixes based around endgame (raiding, etc) data and how it's tricky to tweak classes before the content is available.
In a follow-up blue post today he stated that the aim is to do a broad pass of tuning hotfixes after the first week of raiding and Mythic Keystone dungeons, to get a good sense of endgame data. However, there are some outliers which Blizzard will be addressing quite soon to reduce tank damage as well as the AoE burst of Havoc Demon Hunters and Windwalker Monks.
Other posts in today's roundup include 7.1 PTR Dungeon and Raid testing plans, as well as the reasoning why Honor Talents will no longer reset with Prestige in 7.1.

Mythic Keystones and Dungeons Preview
s and a new level of dungeon difficulty is unlocking on September 20th. You can prep for them in advance with our
Legion Dungeon Guides
which have detailed information on all abilities.
Blizzard has previewed the system below, here are the highlights:
Keystones allow you to run higher-difficulty versions of Mythic+. You can keep leveling up your keystone by completing the dungeon in a certain timeframe.
At the end of a Mythic Keystone run, players get a chest with two high-quality items, starting at ilvl 845 and going up to 865 for Mythic Level 10.
This will be capped at 850 for week 1: which was new information as of today's post
For the highest level dungeon you clear in one week, you will get a corresponding loot chest in your Class Hall the week after. This chest will contain a keystone and loot; your best dungeon from the week before affects how good the keystone and loot is.
In Mythic+, the mobs have a fixed set of affixes which change every week. This will create group variation--there won't be one set group of specs that is best for every set of affixes
There is no lockout for Mythic+. The amount of keystones is the limiting factor instead. This should allow players towards the later part of the week to have a fair chance finding groups.
