Video of New Artifact Weapon Models, Black Rook Hold and Ravencourt Zone Preview
Legion Artifact Weapons have a vast array of unique styles and tints. While we've been previewing these fairly regularly with our modelviewer updates, Artifact Calculator, and transmog recommendations, we had a bit of exciting news this past Alpha update. Several weapons have additional datamined appearances, implying there may be six available artifact styles.
Will this be a special sixth style players can unlock from difficult content (perhaps Challenge Modes)? Or are they replacement models for some old Artifact designs? The Artifact Appearance system is not yet active on the Alpha so we can't confirm how these styles will be used. Perhaps these models will simply be unused, although we hope the sword that resembles Thunderfury makes an appearance.
Below is a video with high-resolution models of the new Artifact styles, as well as screenshot previews.

Ravencourt is nothing like we've seen before from a Night Elf area. Most Night Elf areas are brightly-lit with cheerful flowers and vines and the buildings are wooden and whimsical. Black Rook Hold is an imposing fortress on an island, medieval in style, with stone towers, ghosts training for military duty, weapon racks and glaives, an arena, and imposing raven statues as the main type of decoration. A nearby graveyard houses a memorial to Lord Ravencrest as well as banshee spirits that transform into spectral night elves with
through the catacombs and battle upwards to the top of the spire. Similar to the Karazhan tower, this zone has many small side rooms and nooks which add flavor to the zone, but are not a direct path to the boss. After the first boss, there's even a library/control room, with no hostile NPCs--just ghosts by bookshelves and a strategy table with whimsical miniature statues.
