Ren:

Still feel like I’m waiting around for 7.3 – marking time

Love the lighting effects in Dalaran

Update on The Dead Files

Mike:

Yes, there’s a level 1 mount

SPriest is terrible at leveling, not bad in dungeons (but could be better)

Leveled up my DH and *love it*

Trial of Style!

This week:

Legion Dungeon event

Spirit of Ech’ero mount for weekly archaeology

Trial of Style mini-event starts today and goes til Tuesday

5 players given 2 minutes to create a transmog based on a theme – some PTR themes have included Summer Styles, Winter Wear, Mismatched Mayhem, Fun and Flirty, Tabard Time, Faction Pride, Epic Purple, and of course, the ever popular Freestyle

You can’t see what your competitors are doing as they appear to be wearing smocks to cover their transmogs until the unveiling

Contestants are pulled onto a stage where people can vote on two at a time – strike a pose such as /wave, /cheer, or /dance

After several rounds of voting, prizes are awarded, 1st through 3rd and Consolation. Contains Trial of Style tokens that can be traded for transmog gear in Dalaran

Some complaints on forums of people getting kicked from scenario groups and getting a 30 minute deserter debuff
