1 post in this topic

Blizzard has posted a short blog update on what to expect from the legendary quest line continuation coming in 6.1: Brief details on the Legendary Follower, Gul'dan's ongoing plot, and the related garrison details...

 

The complete blog post follows:

 

Since we first stepped foot on the Draenor of the past, we’ve been inexorably drawn toward one intriguing tale among a multitude of storylines taking place there. In patch 6.1, the quest line that began with ‘Call of the Archmage’ will continue, and the stakes have never been higher.

 

Spoilers follow from here! Do not read this post any further if you do not want story details spoiled.

 

Garona Halforcen

 

The powerful rogue assassin was responsible for the death of King Llane Wrynn. Along with her son Med’an, she aided the New Council of Tirisfal in their brutal struggle against the Twilight’s Hammer and the evil ogre magi Cho’gall. Not long after you first arrived on Draenor, Garona tried to assassinate Khadgar, but you were able to capture her.

Since then, Khadgar has tried to break the mind control that Garona clearly suffers. His efforts, and yours, have been in vain … until now. In patch 6.1, you’ll receive a new quest to infiltrate a Shadow Council stronghold and steal an artifact. Khadgar hopes to be able to free Garona’s mind.

 

Your First Legendary Follower

 

In the savage world of Draenor, you may not have any true friends, but you can forge partnerships with a meaningful purpose. Thanks to Garona, you’ll learn what Gul’dan is up to, and you’ll get the opportunity to witness firsthand as he attempts to take control of the Iron Horde and capture Grommash Hellscream.

Gul’dan is making enemies on all sides.

 

Thereafter, you’ll obtain your first legendary follower. Garona comes to you with three abilities befitting an Assassination Rogue, as well as the Master Assassin trait, which greatly increases the chance of success on any mission she is assigned to. Furthermore, she starts at a follower item level of 630.

 

More to Do

 

In patch 6.1, you’ll now see new visitors to your garrison: quest-givers offering you a variety of activities if you’ve reached garrison Tier 3. These include:

  • Bounty quests – Group up with two or more additional players to hunt down and defeat a powerful enemy.
  • Profession daily – Get your hands on more Primal Spirits, reduce your surplus reagents, and buy the new recipes for crafted upgrades and transmutes.
  • Relic hunting – A series of quests that reward gold and Garrison Resources, which can thereafter be run by your followers as missions. These culminate in the acquisition of Harrison Jones as a follower!
  • Dungeon daily and Raid weekly quests – Rewards may include an item level 655 token.

The new dungeon and raid quests (in addition to your garrison invasion quests) now also have the chance to drop an artifact that allows you to summon a Raid or World boss right to your garrison. You’ll want to get 10-40 players together in your garrison before you activate that one.

 

Other New Visitors

 

There’s a new vendor coming to your garrison who allows you to spend Garrison Resources on items that upgrade your followers’ gear – which can now be pushed to a maximum item level of 675 – and items that can be used to add a rare mission to your list of available missions.

 

Followers can now obtain the Treasure Hunter trait, which increases the amount of gold awarded from a mission that rewards gold. There are a number of new follower missions available to you in patch 6.1, including missions that reward Apexis Crystals, Savage Blood, Augmentation runes, Archaeology Artifacts, and items that instantly complete work orders.

 

There’s also a new visitor to your garrison’s pet menagerie who comes bearing rewards for pet battlers and the promise of a new pets. This coincides with the discovery of a number of new pets in the raid dungeons of Outland. Pet collectors will want to delve into Black Temple, Hyjal Summit, and Sunwell Plateau in search of a dozen fierce companions and the achievement reward pet K’ute.

 

Patch 6.1 arrives on February 24. Check out the PTR patch notes to prepare for all of the changes coming to WoW, and get a better look at some of our other new features here.

      18 micro-holidays tested over the next 3 weeks, you're sure to find a few that you'll love!
       
      The micro-holidays that are being introduced in 7.1.5 are going to be tested in the next 3 weeks and, as a lot of them won't be seen on live for months and months after the patch launches, jumping on the PTR and taking a look now is a great way to see which you should look forward to or care about! With 18 holidays available you're sure to find a few that are just right for you - personally I'm betting on Call of the Scarab for those sweet "world server down" memories of opening the AQ gates.
      Lore (source)
      Beginning tomorrow, December 6, we plan to begin testing of the new Micro-Holiday events being added in Patch 7.1.5. One event will be tested each day for the next few weeks, and we’d love to hear your feedback on them.
      The testing schedule is as follows:
      Tuesday, December 06: Call of the Scarab
      Wednesday, December 07: Kirin Tor Tavern Crawl
      Thursday, December 08: Love is in the Air
      Friday, December 09: Hatching of the Hippogryphs
      Saturday, December 10: March of the Tadpoles
      Sunday, December 11: Volunteer Guard Day
      Monday, December 12: Spring Balloon Festival
      Tuesday, December 13: Glowcap Festival
      Wednesday, December 14: Un'goro Madness
      Thursday, December 15: Call of the Scarab
      Friday, December 16: Kirin Tor Tavern Crawl
      Saturday, December 17: Love is in the Air
      Sunday, December 18: Hatching of the Hippogryphs

      The Trial of Valor Mythic top 20 is done and Method's Final Boss interview is also here!
       
      The Trial of Valor race is slowing down and the top 20 has formed! As Wowprogress doesn't track Chinese guilds the standings below are a little different, but the progress coverage over at Method.gg checked in with Chinese sources and made the rankings right:

       
      Method, this time the guild, also had a big interview with Final Boss and talked about their No.1 spot, the split with Serenity and Legion in general:

      Na'zak graces us with extra loot this week and also has the recipe for Rank 3 Potion of Prolonged Power.
       
      It seems we get double World Bosses this week as Na'zak the Fiend has arrived in Suramar (on both US and EU servers). Blue posts confirm this is not a bug, but it also doesn't seem exactly intended (at least originally), as there was a bug where you could loot him multiple times that's already been fixed. Whether this is a new schedule of World Boss spawns that will give us more than one per week (or a chance at more than one) hasn't been announced so it might just have been one of those things that slipped through the cracks.
      Edit: And here's further confirmation, making it sound like this particular boss was special.
      In any case, he drops Rank 3 of Recipe: Potion of Prolonged Power as well as:
      Avalanche Resistant Legplates Dessicated Leather Pants Leystone Nugget Loop of Polished Pebbles Mana-Dowsing Ring Na'zak's Dusty Pantaloons Venomscarred Chain Leggings

      Hello, so I started playing DK at the launch of legion, and have enjoyed it so far. I was initially unholy but then changed to frost recently, and am enjoying both specs except for one thing, namely my performance. So there are three frost DK's in my raid and lately the other two are always towards the top of the meter while I'm towards the bottom. There is no large gear difference (I think they both have a couple ilvls on me, but I have the legendary belt), so I was wondering what I was doing wrong. Upon looking at logs I found they both casted significantly more spells than me on all fronts (FS, obliterate, etc.). I also noticed that I need to keep icy talons up more, but can someone tell me why I'm casting so many fewer spells than them (there is no large haste difference, the armory has us all at 30something% haste, even though one of them (Hungerghost) and I only have 20something, and I'm sure the same applies to the other DK), or if there is some other problem, then what is it and how can I fix it? Thanks.
