Story recap: Gul’dan escaped to Azeroth through the dark portal and brings the burning legion to our doorstep, Illidan has returned. Tensions between horde and alliance are high. Demon Hunters Demon Hunter class was highly anticipated so expectations were high. Our last hero class was Death Knight, which came with a custom starting zone, unique appearances, special voice overs. Demon Hunters have lots of aesthetic customization, custom voice lines, new emotes, special animations. Demon Hunters have two specializations: Havoc DPS and Vengeance Tank.

Farming Legion Invasions for XP

The Legion is upon us and it’s time to rally the troops—in the form of alts!

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
