Legendary Upgrades After the Nighthold Opens

General Discussion
1 2 3 17 Next
Since the release of Patch 7.1.5, we've received a number of questions relating to the Nighthold Legendary item upgrades and how that process will work. We'd like to provide some clarity on what you can expect next week.

When the Nighthold opens next week, players who have acquired at least one Legion Legendary item will find a quest in Dalaran to upgrade a Legendary from item level 910 to 940. This quest involves collecting a number of Essences of Aman’thul, which can be found in the following locations:

    Nighthold Raid Bosses

    Weekly Mythic Keystone Cache

    Emissary Bags

    PvP Weekly Quests


Once you have completed the quest, you'll be given a Distilled Titan Essence, which can be consumed to upgrade a Legion Legendary item to level 940. The quest is repeatable, so you'll be able to earn as many Distilled Titan Essences as you need to upgrade any Legendaries you have.

Additionally, once the Nighthold is open, any new Legendaries you discover will already be item level 940. Note that this does not apply retroactively to Emissary Bags that you may already have in your inventory when the time comes. Only new bags earned after the Nighthold is open have the chance to reward an item level 940 Legendary.

Thanks!
okay
Will it be available on all levels of NH?
And when can we equip more than 2:)
Rythmor,

Thank you for this information. Could you possibly confirm or deny the alleged connection of this quest to the completion of the Illidan/Xe'ra Questline?

Thank you

Edit:

Thank you to those that posted the twitter information denying the connection, back to my crusade of convincing devs/CMs to use their own website to post information.
I've heard tell of a rumor that our current legendaries will be bumped to 925 as a baseline. Is this true or false?
Thank you for clarifying this (finally). It can be difficult when those of us who don't/can't participate on the PTR hear reports from those who do that some mechanic is being added that is going to restrict our characters.

The official information is always appreciated.
Might sound like a dumb question, but what's the point of the quests to upgrade if the new legendaries aquired after NH will be 940 already?

These will drop in all difficulties of the Nighthold, LFR included.

Many Thanks!
Why not just change the item level of all legendaries to 940?
Thanks for the information. Nice to know everyone will be able to upgrade via their activity of choice - well except for pet battlers (j/k).
PvP weekly quests

Since we don't currently have PvP weekly quests (except for the one in Tol Barad?), I guess this means they're adding PvP weekly quests...
Cool to know. Any update on the new max titanforged ilvl and the new Mythic+ bae ilvl cap? :)

"We're not entirely sure how this rumor got started, but it's false - the 7.1.5 Legendary upgrades are not connected…" https://twitter.com/i/web/status/817542953883209729

That has already been denied via a tweet - no connection.

We do, from the order hall mission table. They aren't there every week though.
