Legion Assaults begin on the Broken Isles
With resets on the 4/5th, 7.2 introduced the much-anticipated Legion Assaults across the Broken Isles which form part of the new staggered content for the zone.

Completing Assaults ‘no longer required’ for Legion Pathfinder Achievement
As a direct result of complaints around frequency and timing of these Invasions, Blizzard announced via a Blue post last week that the assault completion component of 7.2 would no longer be required to allow players access to flying on the Broken Isles. As a result of this and with judicious use of Darkmoon Faire buffs plus race changes, a number of committed individuals are now able to do just that.
