7.2 PTR Development Notes for Build 23657 and Mythic Testing
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.

PTR Development Notes for Build 23578, Artifact Curve Changes, Nighthold Bosses Drop AP
Another 7.2 PTR build is on the way later today. Here's the development notes and some upcoming changes to the 7.2 Artifact Power Grind. Of particular interest in the development notes:
New content open for testing includes the
Cathedral of Eternal Night
Broken Shore World Bosses
Mythic+ has received a variety of improvements such as new affixes, the removal of Overflowing, and adjustments to Artifact Power rewards. Longer dungeons now reward more AP!
Blizzard has also confirmed that their initial Artifact Knowledge and Artifact Power curves were not final in the data - the build after next should see more accurate values. Our PTR Artifact Calculator should automatically update with those values, whenever they are added.
Edit: following the Artifact Power discussion, Lore revealed that Nighthold bosses now drop Artifact Power in 7.1.5.
