Lorewise, the Artifacts were either drained of power (Xal’atath) or were destroyed (Titanstrike). Due to Hati being connected to Titanstrike, he was killed when we absorbed the power of Sargeras’ sword.
Hrm. I wonder what happened to mine. It’s not in my bags or bank and I can’t find it in item restore. I never intentionally deleted it.

I still have all 3 of my hunter artifacts in my bank. You can't even delete them, if you try it says 'this item cannot be destroyed', so I can't imagine how you got rid of yours. D:

A few people have had this problem, and it seems to be some UI error where the info isn't being displayed properly (sometimes for to add-on, even after it's turned off, though some had the problem after spec changing with a fishing pole lol).

If you Google "Artifact Weapon Disappeared", you'll see there's quite a few forums covering it. Most of them had different things that resolved the issue.

Of course, you can always open a ticket too.

Did you put it in void storage? it's been so long since I used it, I forget what the rules are about what we can and can't stick in there.

You can’t put it in void storage, but good thought :). And hanks Rikaku I’ll check out the issue you mention, maybe it’s just hidden. So weird. I have my other two artefacts still but not that one. I thought maybe it was destroyed as part of the game because I was using it when I did that final part of the Legion quest that inactivates your weapon.

Once this quest hits live, I'll might sub again! I'm waiting for Hati and playable Zandalari Troll.

So I would assume it would be wise to do Balance of Power before this questline? Or can you go back and tame different Hati's later?

While the quest isn't completable yet (or nobody has worked out how), it seems unlikely that it would permanently block you from Hati colours that you gained access to *after* you did the new chain. If it turns out to be that way I hope they'd later fix it.

I'm now glad I did the mage tower boss on my hunter. In the end it was the only character I did it on. The fights for some bosses were absurdly more difficult than others and I simply didn't care enough about most of the artifact appearances to try that hard. Plus, I was too busy with BfA website stuff to put in all the hours.

According to what was datamined, you can go back and tame the other Hati's if you chose to not tame them or if you unlock them later on.

Apparently it's now appearing in my bank! I had been staying with a friend and his client has a few addons I don't use and I wonder if the culprit was one of them :P

It’s not just you. None of us have found it yet :(. It’s possible it’s not fully implemented yet. Or it’s possible it triggers from a hidden source that nobody has found, or from a raid. We just don’t know.

It seems that despite what Blizz said in the Blue Post for the most recent ptr build, you cannot yet test the Hati Questline. Or like what Wain said, there is a hidden trigger or something for the questline. Maybe we'll see something in the next build.

Sooo do you just need to unlock one on each tier to get the color?

Correct. For example, you just need to complete the Balance of Power questline to unlock that color for Hati.

I hope the actual implementation of the beasts and taming them is a little interesting. I am super glad we are getting them. I would love something flavorful like Hati walking around Storm Peaks in one of the colors. Like a user friendly non-frustrating version of Madexx. Just feels flavorful and cool to me for Hati to be back wandering the wilds, and an implementation that requires a little hunting isn't a bad thing. But if its just a matter of landing on the platform, selecting 1 of 6 colors and clicking tame, I guess thats better than nothing! This might even require instancing given how unique it is.

Going by the dialogue, you basically just go to a machine and choose which color you want and it is summoned. Not terribly special, but better than nothing. :)

Today's build has introduced a lot of new fun (and some not so fun) things for Hati.

Broken Bond: Hati does not recognize you, pouncing at an exposed weak point, killing you instantly.

Charged Sparkstone: Bring out the latent power in Hati's lightning, visually enhancing Hati's abilities.

Ironspine Protocol: Enhance Hati's size and constitution, allowing mounting.

Jolt Jerky: Feed Hati a special treat, healing a small amount of damage.
Sometimes, Hati may become too excited and viciously lick your face, dealing Nature damage.

Rubber Ball: Throw the ball for Hati.

Voltweave Fez: Give the fez to Hati.
