World of Warcraft's Patch 7.2 Priest class mount

After the flaming wreck that was Warlords of Draenor Blizzard promised they would never again let World of Warcraft go on for months without any new content, and much to my surprise they have so far managed to exceed expectations! Patch 7.1 arrived only a couple of weeks ago with quite possibly the best dungeon World of Warcraft has ever seen, and apparently we're going to be getting even more content in the near future as Patch 7.1.5 is set to arrive to test servers later this week.

And if that isn't enough for you, worry not as Blizzard has also announced their plans for Patch 7.2 - an update so massive it appears to one of the biggest World of Warcraft has ever seen. It will bring with it a brand new dungeon and raid, new class specific missions and mounts, weekly PvP events with customized rules, more Artifact Weapon talents and catch-up mechanics for alts, as well as a whole bunch of smaller improvements!

Once patch 7.2 finally arrives early next year we'll be able to delve into The Tomb of Sargeras, a brand new raid with four different wings and plenty of bosses to spar against. While the information is currently scarce, I can tell you that we'll be fighting a vision of Sargeras himself, as well as Kil'Jaedan who has finally managed to crawl through a portal onto Azeroth. Given the scope of the bosses we'll be fighting against you'd think that The Tomb of Sargeras is the final raid in Legion, but apparently we'll even be going to Argus to fight the Legion directly! While I would love to tell you more about this Blizzard has decided to keep their mouths shut, but at the very least we now know that they have quite a few things prepared to ensure that the content in Legion lasts quite a while!

As far as the new dungeons are concerned, we have the newly announced Cathedral of Night which will be available in Heroic, Mythic, and Mythic +, as well as the introduction of Kharazan as a two-part Mythic+ dungeon for those that desire a real challenge. And just in case you were hoping to outgear all of these dungeons and just head straight into Mythic+15, you might be disappointed to hear that Blizzard will be increasing both the difficulty and the rewards across the board in order to keep the dungeons challenging for as long as possible.

But if you're not a fan of dungeons or raids, worry not as there will be a whole bunch of new missions and events centered around each and every class. As before the details are currently a bit scarce, but apparently the Alliance and Horde offensives will end up failing, which means that you and your class buddies will need to band together and establish a foothold in The Broken Isles. What this means in practical terms is that you will have to help your class build up a stronghold, defend against numerous demonic invasions that will disable all world quests and events in a zone, sabotage Legion starships and facilities, and all that good stuff.

In order to help ensure your success you will be granted access to all-new Artifact traits, as well as a fourth point in existing minor traits. But most interestingly of all, each Artifact Weapon will get one new and "extremely amazing" appearance, though to get it you will need to complete a rather challenging class specific questline. Guardian Druids will be able to turn into what I can only describe as a "Bro Bear", while Protection Warriors will gain access to a flail - a weapon that to my knowledge has never existed in World of Warcraft up until this point!

Bro, do you even lift?

And for all your PvP players out there, you'll soon be getting the classic battle between Tarren Mill and Southshore as a 40v40 battleground, but also PvP Brawls inspired by other Blizzard games. Every once in a while you will be able to access battlegrounds with unique and experimental twists, things such as low gravity in EotS, heavy snowfall in Arathi Basin which limits visibility, or Eye of the Horn - a varient of Eye of the Storm where everyone is on a Ram mount that's capable of... you guessed it, ramming people! These might not be the most competitive of changes, but they are certainly fun and given that they offer slightly higher rewards I doubt anyone will really complain!

Finally, if you're interested in seeing what all of the class exclusive mounts look like I would recommend you head over here. As for me, I'll leave you with a couple of my favorites:
