The Speaker's Call quest.
EDIT From Wowhead clearing any Confusion:

"With today's maintenance, the Artifact Retirement quest is now available on live servers! Completing the quest does not render your artifact unusable yet. Completing the quest, instead, maximizes your Artifact Power, leaving your Artifact at level 126 - Concordance of the Legionfall level 75."

Original OP: So is this it, is this the quest where I give up my artifact weapon to remove Sargeras' sword off of Silithus?

So I lose my Artifact Weapon in the process?

Will I still have compensation for losing such a powerful weapon and all its traits and stats? And will the weapon still be transmogable?

The Speaker's Call quest.
Just some clarification on this one but yes there should be a quest called "The Speaker's Call" that should begin the Artifact Weapon Overcharge. You will need to complete the prerequisite Magni quests in order to receive "The Speaker's Call". When you complete this it should overcharge your artifact up to Artifact Level 126 which puts you at 75 Concordance. All of the existing traits will function until the pre patch.

Take advantage of the overcharge and go take on things like the Mage Tower, Ahead of the Curve: Argus, and The Chosen that are removed when the prepatch goes live soon™. Also don't forget the usual Mythic mount drop chances that will be lowered from their guaranteed 100% when Battle for Azeroth goes live!

If I'm higher than Artifact Level 126 and I do the quest, will I actually lose power?

It should only affect Artifacts that are below that value. So if you're above Concordance 75 it should keep you at that Concordance value. However you might notice it jump up in a week or two ;)

This just simply upon completion moves everyone to Concordance 75 and then next week another bump, and then another. You get the picture.

TL;DR: Smash everything.

Don't forget means this information was given in the past. There has not been a mention of mythic mount having their drop rate lowered at the pre-patch. Traditionally it remains at 100% for the duration of the pre-patch then lowered on expansion launch like for MoP/WoD. Is this no longer the case? Clarification would be appreciated.

Woah, pretty sure this is wrong. I believe Mythic end-boss Mounts haven't been lowered in drop-rate in pre-patch in the past, only at expansion launch.

I thought mount chance dropped at expansion release, not prepatch. I could have sworn this was confirmed before. Am I wrong?


Thanks for the catch. Edited now. Whoops!

Thanks for making Cutting Edge a participation award, I guess..


I mean for those teams that are really close(we're talking consistent ~10% pulls) this will be a bump to help but largely won't be too noticeable. At that level your concordance should already be fairly close to this. If not but you're struggling mechanically this won't make any difference.

I wouldn't call out Cutting Edge because if you're not already close to this it's still not easy to obtain. It's impressive don't get me wrong, but still not feasible for 99% of players.

Does it affect all specs or just one spec per toon?
All specs for that character upon completion of the quest.

it hits all specs, but it's so lack luster, they didnt even bother voicing over magni while he is talking to you in a cutscene, not even subtitles, just him mouthing nothing


There is an issue with his talking head and voice over not appearing and we should have a fix for that soonish. I'll update once I get confirmation that its functioning again.
