Today, we take a look at the Havoc Demon Hunter Artifact quest line. The Havoc Artifacts, Twinblades of the Deceiver (or Verus and Muramas), are the Warglaives of Varedis Felsoul, and are rumored to be even more powerful than Illidan’s.
These glaives belong to the former demon hunter Varedis Felsoul. Once a member of the Illidari and a sworn enemy of the Burning Legion, he was slain at the Black Temple. After the Legion’s leader, Kil’jaeden, revived him in the Twisting Nether, Varedis surrendered to the demon within him, forsaking his mortality. In the process, he and his glaives were infused with great power by Kil’jaeden’s eredar allies.
You can tell that the Havoc Artifact questline is pretty far along in the alpha. Your journey will take you to the Violet Hold to confront a powerful demon, and a Legion corrupted portion of Suramar, where you will slaughter demons, take down Legion sentry towers, and ultimately defeat Varedis, himself.
In the current build, it’s just missing some voice overs, some geography still needs fixing, and some enemies don’t spawn–there is actually another mini boss right before Varedis that didn’t show up for this recording.
Overall, this Artifact quest line seems pleasantly paced and just long enough to be memorable, with a nice mix of characters, old and new lore, visuals and animations, and combat.
