Don't have data from beta and didn't read much into this, so i just speculate based on what i've seen, that there are different champion equipment craftable, each with different bonus. So my guess is that people will use these equipments pretty much similarly as they use glyphs (from a market analogy): equip their champions once and be done with it.
Recipe ranks basically make you more efficient at making stuff, either by letting you craft the same number of items for fewer materials or getting a higher yield from the same amount of materials. As an example, having a one-star rank recipe lets you craft items at a relatively inefficient way, but when you acquire two-star or even three-star recipes, it can almost feel like you are crafting items out of thin air because of the low amount of materials required for each craft.
WowHead reported that the 8.1.5 patch in the Public Test Realm added "Stanley", a thin man with gray-white hair and sunglasses who greets people by shouting “Excelsior!” So far, he was only found in Stormwind, reflecting the colors and armor of the Alliance. But a little more in-depth understanding of this update also has two Stanley character models: one is a neutral colors without armor, and the other is wearing Horde gear.
Set sail for the previously unmapped isles of Azeroth. Battle in groups of three as you race against cunning rival intruders—or enemy players—to collect the island’s resources. Constantly evolving challenges await as you traverse frozen landscapes near Northrend, open the gates of an abandoned Gilnean castle, navigate a war between elementals and more. Tides of Vengeance adds two new Island Expeditions to the mix and two new random events, as well as updated rewards.
Make sure that you use ‘track minerals’ on your min map and try to keep mining until you fill up the last stack of ore, at that time, you can sell it easier on the auction house. It’s a lot easier to sell a stack of 20 ore than it is to sell 18 or 12. I also recommend that you smelt some ore and sell the bars. This will make it easier and faster to sell everything you find while mining.
I think that's server dependant. I make a lot of Golems, but the price on my server is high enough that you could buy all the living steel and still make about 20K (almost 200kg on AH). Its just that you proc all the way up the chain. You proc 20% of your trillium, and then 20% of your living steel. SoH and Ghost Iron are such low effort farms, too. 20% of 180 Trillium Bars at 500g is 18k more profit, 20% of 150 Living Steel at 3500g is another 105kg. That's an extra 25k profit per Golem. If they stop selling stockpile them for the next expansion, they always boom with the price of herbs. And a consistent 20% proc rate is the opposite of RNG, its extra free stuff as a benefit to completing an extra quest (not to mention for new alchemists the investment of leveling Vanilla Alchemy). You're looking for some get rich quick scheme, where the real way to build wealth is patience and volume. No market is going to be viable because you want it to be. Only because you make it viable.
Mythic+ rewards will also go up by 30 item levels; however, during the first week of Season 2, rewards from end-of-run chests will be capped at Mythic 6 quality (item level 385), and the chest you open next week will contain Season 1 rewards if you do a Mythic+ run this week. (So, for example, if you do a Mythic 10 during the final week of Season 1, you’ll get a Season 1 item level 380 piece and 60 Residuum from your first Season 2 chest.)
