wow Blue Tweets: Lore and Level 100 Boosts

1 post in this topic

15043-blue-tweets-lore-and-level-100-boo

The Blues have been busy with some tweets concerning lore, as well as a new video explanation of the Level 100 Boost!

 

Our first tweet comes from @DaveKosak, who is responding to a tweet concerning the term "spirit" in the Warcraft universe.

 

 

It can be pretty challenging to keep control of the different terms for the elements within the world. Fire, Wind, Water, Earth, Wilds, Life, Spirit and Chi. All of these can be used when describing both external and internal elements, hence why it can get pretty confusing. At least now we know that Monks aren't Warlocks 2.0!

 

Our next tweet concerns the level of power that the goddess Elune fits into in regards to other beings.

 

 

This is an interesting one that I'm going to do my best to comment on with the knowledge that I have. Elune is the moon goddess, worshipped by the Night Elves. When Azeroth was initially formed, Elune protected every living thing and allowed them to grow. She is named as the most powerful of the Eternals on Azeroth. The Eternals are native to Azeroth and are immortal, deity-like beings. 

 

Elune was the mother of Cenarius, an extremely powerful being, as well as the creator of Aviana, the demi-goddess of the skies. It's pretty difficult to place her directly on a scale of power, but let's take a look at some of the other things she has done:

  1. Shielded Tyrande from the torture of Lady Vashj.
  2. Gave Tyrande the ability to heal any wound.
  3. Shielded Tyrande from Archimonde's power.
  4. Created the Moonkin.

A recurring theme here is that Elune doesn't actually fight. The goddess is known for her unwillingness to allow combat to ensue, always trying to force peace. Her defensive capabilities are extremely powerful, true, but on an offensive level, we don't actually have much to draw from.

 

The main example of offensive power was the spell granted to Tyrande during the Third War: Starfall. It allowed Tyrande to single-handedly hold back and defeat an army of the dead.

 

To put Elune into categories, we can assume that she is most likely somewhere between the Titans and Old Gods. Power in the Warcraft series is extremely difficult to quantify, since we have so many people with powers that haven't actually been tested against other beings, just spoken of in tales.

 

Back to the tweets! Our last tweet comes from the official @Warcraft Twitter account, concerning a video walkthrough of what happens during the Level 100 Boost.

 

 

Just in case you never caught up with Lemmy and Krazzel in their quest to better one another, make sure you check out the 100 or Bust! video below.

      Patch 7.1.5 brings new Artifact Knowledge catch-up options for both mains and alts.
      We'll be able to catch up on Artifact Knowledge in Patch 7.1.5 using Order Resources.
      The main source of Order Resources is the Blood of Sargeras trader in Dalaran. You can buy Order Resources Cache that will give 200 Order Resources for one Blood of Sargeras. Bloods are farmed via World Quests and Heroic+ dungeons.
      Main Characters
      A new quest was added to your Class Hall called Knowledge is Power. You need to turn in 500 Order Resources to get Artifact Research Synopsis.  The quest is repeatable and can be completed until you reach Artifact Knowledge level 15. After that you will need to place work orders as usual. A total of 7,500 Order Resources is thus required to reach said AK level. That's 37.5 Bloods of Sargeras.

      Alts
      Depending on the Artifact Knowledge level of your main, you can purchase research compendiums and mail them to your alts. These items are bound to your Battle.net account.
      Artifact Research Compendium: Volume I Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I & II Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I-III Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I-IV As an example, if you have Artifact Knowledge Level 15, you can buy Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I & II for 1,000 Order Resources. I think every 5 levels of Artifact Knowledge will unlock a new compendium. If you use the item without any research documents, you instantly reach Artifact Knowledge level 10 (it's like that on PTR right now).
