The Icy Veins team sat down with Tom Chilton and Ion Hazzikostas from the WoW development team to ask questions about Demon Hunters, Artifacts, the story in Legion, and what to expect for changing game play in the new expansion.

 

Note: Icy Veins shared this interview time with Wowfan.cz, and some of the things we present here were answers to their questions.
 
Here is what we learned:

Demon Hunters

  • As it stands, Demon Hunters are slated to wear Leather armor. The developers used to feel that having too many classes on one armor type could cause problems, but as the game has moved towards Personal Loot, that has become less of an issue.
  • An all-new weapon type, Glaives, will be the only weapon type that Demon Hunters can use. They are a weapon 'pair' that comes together and fills both hand slots. Having only one available weapon type for the class will not be an issue in Legion, as you mostly focus on your Artifact throughout this expansion. In the future, Demon Hunters might eventually dual wield the 'standard' agility weapon types.
  • Demon Hunter starting level has not been set, but a starting level between 95-100 is currently being debated (as it is a Hero Class). It's "hard to imagine a Level 1 Demon Hunter running around Elwynn Forest."

Artifacts

  • You obtain your Artifact early on in the Legion experience. This is the weapon you will use throughout the expansion. You will not get weapon drops in Legion. Something that wasn't mentioned during the reveal is that each Artifact has a number of Relic slots, which will determine its raw item stats (DPS, ilvl, etc.) and modifiers to the traits you've chosen, so the Artifact's stats will still improve as you defeat bosses.
  • It will be very important to see how the story plays out regarding Artifacts that come from characters like Tirion. No spoilers!
  • Existing Legendary weapons (and items) are unchanged. Artifacts will be presented differently. There will not be any Legendary weapons in Legion.

Update: Artifacts can still be transmogrified into other items! Other items cannot be transmogrified into Artifacts.

Story Line

  • This is the main universe Illidan. There is no 'alternate universe' Azeroth going on. Gul'dan was banished through the Twisting Nether into our world, into our time today. The scene where Gul'dan discovered and awoke Illidan is part of the Demon Hunter experience and why the Legion is at this place - they came specifically for Illidan. "Maiev was out at the pub." tongue.png
  • The only time you spend inside the Emerald Nightmare is in the raid zone. Its influence will be felt outside, but only the raid takes place inside the Nightmare. The Emerald Dream/Nightmare might be expanded on further in the future.
  • The Mists of Pandaria story saw the Horde expelled from Dalaran, but with Khadgar as the leader of the Kirin Tor, he has worked with the Horde and feels responsible for Gul'dan, and wants help from both sides.
  • Asked if Wrathion will be back, as he foretold the coming of the Legion? "We'll see."
  • Karazhan's brief appearance in the cinematic teaser was important. Karazhan is an 'important place'.
  • Dalaran is more or less lifted from Wrath of the Lich King, and will be a neutral capital city for both factions. For game play purposes, it will still also be in Northrend - it won't be 'moved' the way it was for Wrath. Some things will have changed.
  • Regarding the new Violet Hold and other Dalaran changes, the devs noted that Dalaran has some ancient purposes that weren't fully understood, and it is affected by being brought this close to the Tomb of Sargeras.

Game Play

  • Classes will evolve in a number of ways in Legion. The development team is looking closely at the core fantasy for each class. Talent changes and class changes are being made - stay tuned. The PvP talent system also gives the developers room to take PvP-type talents out of the current talent trees. PvP talents will not function in PvE environments.
  • As an example of class changes, the Survival Hunter 'spear' Artifact was brought up. In Legion, Survival Hunters will be a melee spec that utilizes a pet. To differentiate specializations, the developers will try to de-homogenize the classes. Further to this, Beast Mastery Hunters will fight at range with a pet, while Marksmanship Hunters will fight at range with NO PET.
  • Demonology Warlocks will be masters of summoning and controlling demons. Metamorphosis sort-of came to dominate the class, but the devs are refocusing the spec on demons. Affliction will continue to be about 'decay', and Destruction about 'bursts of fel fire'.
  • No stat squish is planned for Legion. Health numbers are 'fairly high', but that is because health was intentionally increased to manage the feel and flow of healing. DPS is still 'easily an expansion away' from the numbers players were seeing in Siege of Orgrimmar.
  • Professions are getting a lot of new stuff. The professions team for Legion is the largest that Blizzard has ever had for WoW, and they clearly heard the feedback that professions were underutilized in Warlords and overlapped with the Garrisons too much.
  • Realm firsts are not coming back. There was value in some (Ion mentioned things like the first player to beat Brawler's Guild, Mythic guild firsts, etc.), but the general philosophy is to allow players to take their time and enjoy the content at their own pace. Plenty of third parties actively track 'first to 100', etc.

UpdateOther Warlock specializations will not be losing access to demon pets. All three Warlock specs will still utilize demons.
 


 

Miscellaneous

  • Garrisons are staying in Draenor. If you want to go back and visit them, you can! They were always designed as something that you would leave in Draenor. The developers may revisit the system with something bigger, better, and different in the future.
  • Order Halls are very different - they are a shared multiplayer space. They just happen to be the place you'll go to send your Champions on missions. They don't duplicate the functionality of cities (no AH, no bank) - think Acherus for Death Knights.
  • A release date is not set yet. The full cinematic is being actively worked on, but it isn't quite complete yet.
  • For new players who feel intimidated by the size and scope of the game, the developers feel that the character boost helps get people to playing with their friends faster.

Learn anything you're excited about in this interview? Still new things you're hoping to find out about Legion? Let us know.

First of all there's some great news and information in the above so great job folks!

 

I said to a few friends before the reveal that I was more interested in the "features" than the new expansion story / regular content such as zones raids and dungeons.  I feel they've got my attention with artifacts, changes to transmog and the Order Halls.

 

It's great to hear that the Order Halls will be a class hub without giving players a reason to stay there too long like garrisons (with regards to no AH, bank etc).

 

From a personal point of view I am really really looking forward to hearing more news about professions.  Hope we get some more info on those in the near future!  Glad they've taken on feedback from WoD as they are in a bad place right now!

Will PvE talents function in PvP enviroments?

 

 

Will the honor v3 system start at level 100, or only at max level? There are players who want to level through Battlegrounds only, and would want tot unlock these early on.

 

They mentioned that they don't want gear to be the deciding factor for PvP, but will the gear play any factor at all in Legion? Is Honor (the currency system) going to be removed so people can buy gear according to their PvP level? 

 

I think its a great thing that Hunters can become melee, remembered all those melee spell back in WotlK. Wonder if they will be able to stealth via Camo, giving them a true Hunter-like feeling.

Demonology Warlocks becomes more like BM Hunters, are we going to see a massive imp swarm? 2 Infernals?

I'm pretty excited about the class changes! I want there to be more differences between the hunter specs, for instance. My main is a hunter, so I'm not 100% sure whether I'd want to be a melee pet spec, but what is really cool is I could switch as needed, for example, if the raid needed more melee over range for some reason (though range can still hang out with melee, I know :P).

 

I'm also excited for Demonology to go back to focusing on demons instead of Meta; I honestly didn't like Meta, which is the biggest reason I didn't like playing the spec (going Destro most of the time instead). I loved ALL THE IMPS so I'm excited to see how that changes in 7+!

will feral druids with claws of shirvallah still have the new updated catform?

will the artifact weapon traits be active/balanced in pvp?

Are you sure it's that they're the only weapon that DHs can wield, and not that they're a weapon that only DHs can wield? Because this info directly contradicts Blizzard's own Demon Hunter page.

 

  • AVAILABLE WEAPONS
  • Daggers, Fist Weapons, One-Handed Axes, One-Handed Maces, One-Handed Swords

I was thinking the same. It might have been some miscommunication. Till blizzarad officially changes the info on their website, i will assume that "Glaives is a weapon that only Demon hunters can wear", and not that "Demon Hunters can only wear glaives"

Was there any mention about how dual spec or respec will be handled for artifact weapons? We have thrown some ideas around in guild but it would be nice to know if we will have to do the quest over, or if the weapons will just "change" to our new spec when we change.

I would love to see unholy DKs take a bit more 'lich' to them - instead of a single pet that you make big, summoning short-lived minions of different types (spellcaster, archer, soldier, tank) would fit better - add in a chance of summon minion on enemy kill and you'd have some serious bad a$$-ness

My bet is that Glaives will effectively be a two-handed weapon, like a staff or polearm, but it will be unique to Demon Hunters and unable to transmog into anything else.  And they'll probably be a fast weapon.

 

Then, Demon Hunters will also have access to the agility one-handers listed on the website, but will prefer quick weapons (like most rogues).

 

What you end up with is a choice similar to what Monks or Frost DK's have today: whether a single big two-hander is better than two smaller one-handers.  It will probably cause some alteration to optimal rotations, allowing a bit more variety to the DH gameplay without having huge spec-level differences.

The problem with that theory is that it showed the game play of it during the stream and they were dual wielding them. The chances of dual wielding 2h weapons for a class focused on speed and agility is rather slim

I'm not talking about the animation.  They'll still make it look like the DH is wielding two separate glaives, and the attack rates will match accordingly.

 

What they have said is that "glaives" will be a single item.  This means that it's effectively a single two-handed weapon for balance and mathematics purposes, even though the graphics and animation will show otherwise.

Not sure how far down this post will go, but while I suspect you're probably right that it's a typo or mistake (kinda), They could also just be focusing on the fact that the Artifact weapons are the only weapons you should really be using this expansion and the demon hunters one will almost definitely be Glaives of some sort. So for this expansion demon hunter will/should only use Glaives. Also if anyone else has already pointed this out then sorry, only read through so many of the replies :D.

Haha, when we arrived they were like "You're with the Russian guys, so our Russian CM will take care of you!", so that confused us tongue.png Didn't we have an interview together last year too? Heroes maybe. And btw, feel free to use all our questions/answers, no worries

    • Community Contribution: Overwatch UI in World of Warcraft
      By Zadina
      Do you miss Overwatch when you are playing World of Warcraft? Fear no more; with this User Interface pack you will feel like you are playing your favourite Blizzard shooter, when in fact you are playing your favourite Blizzard MMO-RPG!
      The Overwatch UI pack for World of Warcraft has been around for quite a while (since January 2015, according to WoW Interface and Reddit), but a slight variation of it rose in popularity yesterday mostly thanks to the launch of Overwatch.

       

      Images from Imgur and WoW Interface
      As you can see in the above pictures, the UI features the characteristic minimap and player frames from Overwatch, while the target frame is on the top of the screen. There is also a row of auras with artwork obviously inspired by Overwatch. I am not sure what its exact purpose is, but my guess would be you can customize it to show cooldowns, buffs etc. Same goes for the “ultimate ability” warning in the middle.
      I am not sure if I would use it, since it is too minimalistic for my taste, but it is definitely really easy on the eye! What do you think?

      Good luck!

      Disclaimer: This is a giveaway officially organised by Blizzard, not Icy Veins. We are just letting you know about it.

    • Warcraft Movie: Lothar Spotlight, Alliance War Room, Machinima Trailer and Twitter Q&A
      By Zadina
      In this article, we have a video of Travis Fimmel introducing his character Lothar, Rob Kazinsky giving us a tour of the Alliance war room, the entire trailer of the film recreated in World of Warcraft and a recap of Jones and Kazinsky’s Twitter Q&A!
      It looks like we will have a new video about Warcraft to review every day from now on (well, we kinda did that already). USA Today has a week full of exclusive videos introducing the characters of Warcraft and Anduin Lothar (played by Travis Fimmel) is the first. The video has some new scenes and it looks like Calann is indeed Lothar’s son! We also get to see some of the training Fimmel overtook to meet the challenges of his role. You can view the video here.
      Even though he portrays a Horde character, Rob Kazinsky gave us a tour of the Alliance war room with all its weapon and armor props.
      Placeholder for tweet 734740668829032448 Rob and director Duncan Jones also had a short Twitter Q&A. The beginning of it was broadcast on Periscope and afterwards Kazinsky and Jones posted their answers on several questions as tweets on their individual Twitter accounts. Here are some of the answers they gave:
      Duncan Jones has a plan for three movies but this will obviously depend on how popular the first movie is. Talking about why Dalaran is floating, Duncan explained hey changed the story, because they needed to fit a lot of material in a single movie. They chose the storylines that had greater depth and  could be explained properly in a movie setting. Rob added that Archimonde doesn’t have that deep of a storyline, so he may not appear in the movie There are no Trolls or Taurens in the movie, but there are several Draenei. Both Duncan and Rob asked Blizzard if they had plans for Warcraft 4, but Blizzard said no. Duncan Jones is considering Toby Kebbell, who played Durotan, to also portray Thrall in a possible sequel. You will definitely recognise places from the game in the movie. Rob’s favourite Easter egg is Murlocs, his favourite legendary weapon is Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Wind-Seeker and his favourite raid boss is Yogg-Saron. There will be extended scenes in the Blu Ray release of the film. Duncan also hopes that if the film goes well, he will be able to do an extended version of the whole film (like in the Lord of the Rings). Lastly, you may remember that Ivan Kuzkin made two videos with scenes from the movie recreated in the World of Warcraft enginge. Ivan also posted how he made these two videos. Now, another fan, OrlinChris, remade the whole movie trailer as a WoW machinima.
    • How to Make Gold in World of Warcraft: An Introduction
      By Peelyon
      Over the upcoming weeks and months I will be highlighting a number of ways to make gold in World of Warcraft. There are a great number of guides and resources available on the web but I would like to share my experiences and knowledge with you guys here on Icy Veins.

      A little about me

       
      I have been playing World of Warcraft since launch in the US and, give or take a few breaks here and there, I have played in each expansion. I have always enjoyed making gold to varying degrees of success but have taken my gold making a little more seriously in the past year. I stream regularly on Twitch about making gold and the methods I use and take the opportunity to learn from my viewers as well. Feel free to check out my channel www.twitch.tv/peelyon and give me a follow to see when I am next streaming.
       
      There is a great gold making community out there and again I will be highlighting a few other gold makers and the methods they employ in the upcoming months.
      Just as a little disclaimer... I am by no means the font of all knowledge, however I do try my best to help others as much as I can. So if you have any comments, ideas, or thoughts, then don't hesitate to share!
       
       
      Why do I need to make gold?

       
      Gold making has always been a part of the World of Warcraft. For some it is enjoyable to do so, and for others it is a chore. Some players make gold relatively easily, while others never seem to be able to generate much gold at all. Over the course of my blogs I hope to be able to help gold makers of any level, especially those who struggle.
       
      With the introduction of the WoW Token, a large number of players wish to pay for their subscription with gold and so this has lead to an increase of players trying to grind each and every month to continue to play.
       
      Hopefully, with some of the hints and tips that I will provide, making gold should become a little easier and more enjoyable.
       
       
       
       
      It's all relative!

       
      Whether you have 10K, 200K, or 10 million gold, every player can learn and improve on their personal gold making. One of the key points I make during my stream is that I love to learn from others and help reach my own personal targets. So don't worry if you have never managed to get more than 20K before, by applying some of the methods you'll be able to push your own targets! It's a great feeling when you hit your goal and just remember, it's not about how much gold others have!
       
       
       
       
      Farming

       
      The most common questions I am asked on my stream are about farming.
       
      Where do you farm?
      Where is the best place to farm?
      Where can I farm quick / fast gold?
       
      Realistically, this isn't an easy question to answer. There are a number of factors that need to be taken into account that all revolve around the individual. I am a firm believer in ensuring you enjoy the game. Grinding and farming (for rep / quests / gold) can be boring dull and will result in you getting frustrated. Therefore, I advise players to be honest about how much time they have and to use that time as wisely as possible.
       
      Whether you are farming pure materials (herbs, ore, etc.), farming for transmog gear, or even random drops like battle pets/mounts, time will always be the deciding factor (taking into account "luck", of course).
       
      I will try and give rough indications how long an instance run takes or give drop chances for certain items to help you manage your time better and hopefully enjoy any farming you do. The greater enjoyment you get out of it, the longer you will be willing to give it a try.
       
       
       
       
      What you can expect from my posts

       
      Each post will focus on one particular area or trick that I employ to make gold. Not every post will be achievable for some readers, as they may require a certain profession / character level / or even gear level. I will try and be as clear as possible as to what requirements are needed at the beginning of each post so you can quickly see if it is something you can do or not.
       
      I will try and provide as many screenshots of my own personal sales as I can to help give you some confidence in the possible results, but please remember that they will vary depending on your own server. I try not to embellish any of my methods, and I will give you realistic values of what you can achieve.
       
       
       
       
      Wrap up

       
      So, thanks if you managed to make it this far. I truly hope this will turn out to be a great journey for some of you who are wanting to make more gold in the future.
      Until then: happy hunting!
       
    • Gold Making: Transmog Farming - The Admiral's Den
      By Peelyon
      Welcome to my transmog farming guide for the Admiral's Den.  This location is one of my favourite farming spots currently, and although it is not among the most profitable areas.
        Location:  The cave in the South East corner of Thousand Needles (Southsea Holdfast on your map)

      Mob Level:  40-44 (Elite)

      Average LIV / hour: 5000-10000g 
       
      Notable Items / Sets: Saltstone Surcoat, Trickster's Vest, Steadfast Legplates
       
       
      How to get there
       
       

       
       
      The cave entrance is located at (91,82) in Thousand Needles, Kalimdor.  As you can see from the map it is in the south east corner and very close to Tanaris.
       
      The quickest way (although not available to everyone) is to use Ultrasafe Transporter: Gadgetzan.  Note this is a Gnomish engineering item only, but worth reminding you incase you have one sat in the bank collecting dust!
       
      The Uldum portal (if you have it unlocked) or the Cavern's of Time portal in Dalaran are other options as well!
       
       
      The Route
       
      As the cave is not instanced there is no limitation on how long you can farm for (other than possibly bag space).  One of the main reasons I enjoy this farming spot is the respawn rate.  The route (as shown in the high quality minimap below) is very short and the mobs should have respawned by the time you finish each loop.  
       
       

       
       
      Note that I only cover half of the cave.  There is no real need to farm the entire cave as all of the mobs are the same and the respawn rate keeps you close to the entrance.
       
       
      Den Whompers
       
      The mobs you will be farming are called Den Whomper.  They drop a fairly wide range of low - medium value transmog.  They are fairly spread out inside the cave so a ranged attack will be useful for the ogre's that are a little far away.  As always bring along a Loot-A-Rang to help speed up looting the mobs from a distance.
       
      The Saltstone set is the main reason you are here.  The chest has an average value of 15k and all of the set items have some value. The picture below is from August 2015, and with the introduction of the wardrobe in Legion, I expect prices to rise in the upcoming months.
       
       

       
       
      As well as the Den Whomper's there is a rare (just after you jump down from the ledge on your route) called Strix the Barbed.  The loot table does not offer up anything overly exciting, but you may get lucky and grab a valuable green.
       
       

       
       
      Wrap Up
       
      I hope you enjoyed this guide to The Admiral's Den.  It is fairly well known to a number of gold makers but perhaps not so much to the general player, so if it is a new area for you give it a try!  It's a really relaxed farm that I can spend anywhere from 15 minutes to a few hours farming (especially with my engineering portal as the travel time is minimal).  There is rarely any competition so keep running that loop and I wish you luck in your drops!
       
      Over the next few weeks check your auction house for cheap Small Egg and Northern Egg in preparation for my Children's Week seasonal guide!
       
       
      The Admiral's Den is a simple, non-instanced transmog farming spot located in Thousand Needles. The mobs there respawn quite quickly and drop a variety of low/medium priced transmog items; most notably the Saltstone set.
