Legion Marathon tips

by pallimmanis on

With the release of Legion taking place tonight we put together a list of some important items to remember during the marathon grind to level 110: Take breaks Everyone has their own objectives they want to accomplish, whether it’s the first person on their realm to hit 110, or the first one to max out their First Aid skill, find the first legendary, etc. While it’s exciting to be able to do this, remember to stand up and stretch (for more than just quick trips to the bathroom.) Focus on stretching your hands as a part of this. They’re going to take a beating during your session and you want to keep them in good shape. Stay hydrated Sure, you bought that 24 can flat of Monster/Rockstar/Red Bull. They’re useful for energy but your body still needs water to process and flush all the extra stuff that comes with those ...

 

Legion: My Top 6 Class Specs

by Hotstreak on

With Legion literally right around the corner, I’ve found myself struggling to choose which classes and specs that I want to devote the most time to. This is made even harder by the fact that each spec gets their own artifact and quest line. Ideally I want to pick two classes to devote my time to, so I’ve narrowed my choices down to six specs consisting of three melee and three ranged and hopefully, with any luck, this will help you out too if you’re struggling as well. These are my personal favorites and I’m in no way claiming them to be the best. So let’s get into it starting with my top three melee specs. Enhancement Shaman I have always liked the fantasy of Enhancement, being a dual wielding badass of the elements was always something I clicked with. But over the past couple of expansions they were in ...

 

Farming Legion Invasions for XP

by Ktjn on

The Legion is upon us and it’s time to rally the troops—in the form of alts! Farming invasions is the quickest way to catch up if you’ve recently returned to Azeroth, be it from Draenor or a more Earth-based hiatus. Invasions provide a great amount of XP, in addition to item level 700-720 gear (when opened at max level) from loot boxes—or purchased from the reluctant vendor with the invasion-specific currency, Nethershards. These boxes can be held onto until you hit 100 regardless of what level you were when obtained. Levels 1-60: The best, albeit tedious, method is cycling the first two phases of an invasion site. For Horde, the best spot is Azshara since you can quickly run into Orgrimmar and reset the phases. Alliance side, your best bet is Dun Morogh, where you can pop into the Inn and quickly log out. Phase three requires more mobility to get ...

 

Legion Dungeon & Raid Schedule

by pallimmanis on

As anticipated, Blizzard has officially announced the release dates for the first set of dungeons and raids added as a part of the expansion launching August 30th. Normal and Heroic mode dungeons will be immediately available when the expansion launches with Standard-difficulty Mythic dungeons becoming available later that day. The first raid and more advanced difficulty Mythic dungeons unlock September 20th, giving players three weeks to level and get geared. LFR wings are once again spread across several weeks to keep their pace similar to the progression of the other raid difficulties....

 

Emerald Nightmare Opening

by pallimmanis on

Blizzard is currently at Gamescom and while they’re at the convention some of the World of Warcraft developers are taking the time to provide additional insight into Legion as the expansion draws nearer. One piece of information provided during an interview with Fatboss is that the development team is planning on having the first raid of the new expansion, the Emerald Nightmare, will open on September 20th, three weeks after the expansion launches. As with previous raid launches the Normal and Heroic difficulties will open the first week with Mythic available the next week. There hasn’t been an official announcement of these dates yet but we’re anticipating hearing them soon, along with dates for when various wings of the LFR version will be available. Ion did state that raiders will “most likely” have a lot of their set pieces by the time the first wing becomes available so it sounds ...

Patch 7.1: Return to Karazhan

by JR Cook on

Livestreamer Slootbag had a small interview with Ion Hazikostas regarding a steady stream of content after Legion is released. Ion mentioned that each raid tier should last roughly 4 to 5 months and that they want to ensure they are focused on continuously putting out content in this expansion. With that said, he was able to announce the first major patch after Legion releases. Patch 7.1 will be titled Return to Karazhan and it will hit the PTR shortly after Legion releases. Karazhan will be a 5 man dungeon with all 9 bosses. The old Karazhan raid will still exist in it’s current form. The patch will also include a small raid between Nightmare and Nighthold that will wrap up the Stormheim storyline. There will also be new Suramar quests and additional world content. Hazikostas finished the interview by saying not to worry that they are front loading content (much ...

Okay, so you’ve toiled away on the character creation screen long enough and you’re ready to stand beside Illidan against the Legion. As soon as you gain control of your character for the first time you are thrust onto Mardum, located in the Twisting Nether, ready to take down the Legion. First, arm yourself with a little knowledge—it is power after all! Most of the treasures contain Legion Healthstone or Fel Crystal Fragments, but two very important chests marked below:  The southern treasure contains a reusable mini-flask, Inquisitor’s Menacing Eye an alternate version of Oralius’ Whispering Crystal which requires a bit more time and effort from a Draenor Garrison Inn. The eastern one contains Vile Stalkerskin Pouch a 28-slot bag, saving yourself a thousand gold on the Auction House. If you happen to have HandyNotes along with HandyNotes Draenor Treasures then you’re all set. Eventually you’ll need Legion Treasures so why not grab it now while you’re ...

 

August 16th Hotfixes

by pallimmanis on

The list of hotfixes for patch 7.0.3 has been updated with the most recent changes, which includes a change to the amount of experience points players receive from Demon invasions. This change was implemented as a result of the increasing frequency of invasions, so while players receive less experience per invasion it is ultimately a net gain of experience points per hour from invasions. Another change which will allow players to continue increasing their item level is the added chance for Fel Infused (invasion) pieces to be Warforged. For the full list of changes check out the list below or on the Warcraft community site and let us know what you think in the comment section....

 

Warforged Invasion Loot

by pallimmanis on

It looks like the developers are making some changes in the back-end to help players continue to prepare for Legion’s launch. Wowpedia has confirmed that items which drop from Demon Invasion chests now have a chance to be Warforged, adding at least an additional 10 levels to their existing 700 item level. This reflects upon the development team’s earlier statement that, as the invasion proceeds and the Legion gets stronger, the loot will also get incrementally better to help hold the demons off. There hasn’t been any word yet on how high the item levels will go but there are only two weeks until the launch of the expansion so depending on the final numbers we may see them go up fairly quickly. Update: Items have the chance to roll an upgrade 720 item level as confirmed here....
