5.1 Site Features: New Tooltips and Item Upgrades
Over this past week, the Wowhead team has implemented new site tools reflecting 5.1 changes: many Item Upgrade tools and redesigned tooltips!
Upgrading an item via currency is a unique feature added in 5.1 in which players can

Since we last covered new quests in 5.1, there's been some big updates we wanted to share about legendary and faction quests.

There are upgraded versions of legendary gems:
