We're working on a small client patch to fix this and a few other issues (such as the Twitter screenshot function).

holy pally doesn't get 2H-Wep with pre-patch, even though new kit and upcoming artifact are built around that?


Some artifacts (such as Holy Paladin) are meant to break some of the normal "rules," but aren't needed at level 100.

There's an issue causing Runeforges not to activate on non-artifacts in PvP, which will be fixed in a future patch.

But if you're using personal loot and a tier token drops, you won't have to go through the act of "using" it?


Correct. Personal loot will award the armor piece itself, based on your selected loot specialization.
