Blizzard has released blog previews for the Class Order Halls, the new zone Val'sharah and the two dungeons located in it: Darkheart Thicket and Black Rook Hold.

Let's start with the Order Halls! Blizzard has posted a blog with short previews for each Class Order Hall. If you want to learn a bit more about them, check out our recap of the Artifacts and Class Order Halls Q&A by Craig Amai.

As you may have noticed, right now both the Alliance and the Horde are dealing with a bit of disarray on the leadership level. In World of Warcraft: Legion, you’ll need to step up and find new ways to band together against the invasion that threatens all of Azeroth. As you venture into the Broken Isles, you’ll join forces with other heroes of your class—no matter what faction they may be from—to make a stand and save everyone from annihilation.

Every class needs a place to call home—a special retreat where support can be found, and a war room in which plans can be made. In Legion, this refuge is known as your Class Hall, a unique-to-your-class place where the champions of Warcraft will work with you to meet the challenges that you face in the Broken Isles.

Death Knight—Acherus 

Acherus, also known as the Ebon Hold, was once a Scourge necropolis. It now provides everything a Death Knight might need, including a forge, a runeforge, and a soul forge.

The Legion zone preview blogs continue with Val'sharah, probably the most beautiful zone of the new expansion. This magical forest is home to all Druids: it was here that the demigod Cenarius taught the first Druids, like Malfurion Stormrage. The Temple of Elune is also located in this zone. However, the Emerald Nightmare is spreading through Val'sharah, threatening to destroy its lush forests.

The main themes of Val'sharah are: druidism, the Emerald Nightmare, Night Elves and the Green Dragonflight. You also need to prepare yourself: just as we had deaths during the Broken Shore scenario, a major character will die in this zone. Most importantly, though, the zone has something unique and amazing: unicorns!

In this zone preview, we sat down with Senior Game Designer Steve Burke to talk about Val’sharah and learn more about what you’ll experience there.

Within these densely forested lands, you’ll find the very heart of druidism. This is also the location of the Emerald Nightmare and where the demigod Cenarius first met Malfurion Stormrage and later began his training. You'll also find key places such as the tainted world tree Shaladrassil and the dungeon Black Rook Hold—an elven fortress that dates back to the War of the Ancients.

Enraptured Woodlands Composed by Edo Guidotti and Jason Hayes

Q. How would you describe the zone’s ambience? What’s it like?

Steve Burke: We were really shooting for what would be the closest to the Emerald Dream realized on Azeroth. Every square inch of this forest has been manicured by the druids for hundreds of years. We’ve got the Grove of Cenarius here, so that’s the fount of all druidism, right? That’s where all these uber Arch Druids have trained, so a lot of big history has happened there. 

L05PQ29AO6QR1471307513909.jpg

Then juxtaposed with this, we have the Emerald Nightmare. It was exciting, but it was tough for us to pin down how we would execute on that. We had some fits and starts, but I really like where it landed. You’ve got this big transition of “Hey, in the last week or two the World Tree that’s there has become completely corrupted.” It’s spreading throughout the forest, and I think we’ve got that really cool battle line drawn right through one of the Arch Druids’ groves. It’s just being taken over so you really get to see that cause and effect and contrast. Seeing what it does to the druids and the creatures—the centaur and the dryads—is really cool. We also have Xavius, who’s a villain who has a little bit of familiarity, so we didn’t have to do too much to establish him. You get to hate him right away.

To break that up, we really felt we needed Black Rook Hold for something a little different. We have a Gilnean village at the foot of Black Rook Keep, where they’ve carved out their own little area that wasn’t being used by the druids. It’s that classic little village in the shadow of the keep above.

Q. Which locations would you say are some of your favorites, and why?

Steve Burke: Black Rook Hold is definitely one of my favorites. This point of interest (PoI) in particular is my favorite because I had a blank slate. I could say, “OK, as a designer what makes the best PoI?” Not just art, but the gameplay and hitting that fantasy. I sat down with Julian Morris and other leads and talked about previous points of interest where you could stand in them and just digest the whole thing. It’s not accessible, and you can’t necessarily reach it, but you can get that goal of, “Oh man, I can’t wait to get into that place or up over the hill.” It kind of tells its own story just by looking at it. The setting already kind of speaks to you, and then we can focus on the little local stories and just have fun weaving you through. Especially something this epic where you gradually get there in the end. You’ve kind of solved a mystery—or set the stage for a dungeon, in this case. It’s really great.

51KP64CMC96D1471307514195.jpg

Another one is the Grove of Cenarius, and that is one of my favorites just because of all of the history. This is Cenarius. This is where he is. It was hard making this zone just in regard to how much druid lore we have out there. All these big characters—how do we do service to them all? If we threw everything in here, your head would be spinning. You’d get to spend two seconds on this character, and then you wouldn’t be able to really know them.

So we’re talking about the story that we want to tell as you go through the zone that takes up a little bit of player bandwidth just to say, “Ok there’s Xavius again and the Legion has empowered him. They’ve kind of resurrected him and now he’s impacting this force.” So a part of the story. How many characters do we get to fit in here without blowing the player’s mind? It was just clear Cenarius had to be here, but he’s so big and he’s so powerful, how can we have a crisis here if he’s part of the picture? He can just blow anything away, right? I like the way it landed where he’s just so interconnected with the Emerald Dream that when the Emerald Dream is under assault by the Nightmare, it has affected him in a very serious way. So we got to have him in the zone visibly, just not in a state where he can really impact events. 

DRZBRAH4G9CV1471307513917.jpg

We can also still play with big characters—we’ve got Malfurion, and later we have Tyrande in there. That was tricky, since both Horde and Alliance interact with her. With her chasing after Malfurion, who’s been lost, there was enough urgency that it felt OK for her to use you as a Horde player, to set our differences aside for right now. For her, it’s a matter of making some very difficult choices between her husband and her duty to the Temple of Elune.

With the Temple of Elune, it’s under siege, and there’s a lot to lose there. This was something I always wanted to build towards—we’ve never seen anybody of Elune’s stature physically in the game. How do we get that to happen? 

Q. Why do you think a player would want to start in this zone first?

Steve Burke: I would say they shouldn’t—they should save it for last. It’s tricky though. All of the zones are great. I hope this is where druids are going to want to go. They should feel like this is their place, and if they don’t, I’ve done something wrong. That was day one where I was like, “Ok, I get to play with Val’sharah. Obviously, we have got to play these druids up in a way we just haven’t done before in the game.”

There’s been a lot in our lore that talks about how important they are, but here I just wanted to give them a story that would be super intimate to them—playable and appreciable by everybody, but one that would really resonate with them. Their Class Hall is here, but I wanted the zone and the zone story to be something they could connect with in a special way, so hopefully we did that. 

FSFHAVOJ6KOH1471307514201.jpg

Q. What is it that will bring them back to this zone?

Steve Burke: Mechanically, we have World Quests—that’s the easy answer. Storywise, there’s an epic story that goes through and touches on Black Rook Hold with Illidan. We’ve got the level-up dungeon, which is the Darkheart Thicket underneath the World Tree, and we’ve got the max-level dungeon with Black Rook Hold, so that will definitely bring you back.

But yeah, the World Quests—hopefully we set the table for you so that it will bring you back and put you into that familiar setting where you can keep helping to push back the Nightmare.

I18W1MJVDJCH1471307513932.jpg

Q. Is there anything else that players should look forward to here?

Steve Burke: There are a lot of little touches everywhere, but I don’t want to spoil anything for anyone who’s looking forward to that exploration.

Darkheart Thicket and Black Rook Hold are both dungeons located in Val'sharah and they tie into two different story lines of this zone. The former is a leveling dungeon. Without spoiling too much, Malfurion is in terrible danger, after being abducted by the shade of Xavius. Is our favourite Druid going to survive? On the other hand, as you will notice while questing in Val'sharah, Lord Ravencrest is back and it is your task to defeat him in the max-level Black Rook Hold.

Many challenges await the heroes of Azeroth in Legion, and among the most dangerous are the dungeons found in and around the Broken Isles. In this preview, we take a look at two of the expansion’s new dungeons: Black Rook Hold and Darkheart Thicket.

Black Rook Hold

VWEU0M6OQGDC1471018158617.jpg

Minimum Level: 110
Location: Val’sharah
Bosses: 4

Carved from the greatest mountain of Val’sharah by ancient elven masons, Black Rook Hold stood as a bulwark against the Burning Legion during the War of the Ancients. The nigh-impregnable fortress is also the ancestral home of Lord Kur’talos Ravencrest, one-time mentor of Illidan himself. But since the latest Legion attack, a strange dark energy emanates from the Hold, and restless dead plague the surrounding lands.

Developer Insights: The encounter team was excited to tackle Black Rook Hold, which is probably the closest thing to a traditional castle that World of Warcraft has seen since Shadowfang Keep. It’s also a very different take on elven architecture than we’re used to seeing. Not much was known about the structure, other than the fact that it was built as a bulwark against the Legion, was named for its tower’s resemblance to a certain chess piece, and that it was closely associated with Lord Kur’talos Ravencrest, one-time mentor of Illidan. We doubled down on that last angle, beginning in the Ravencrest family crypt beneath the Hold and having the players work their way up through cobweb-filled corridors as the presence and influence of the Legion grow. The source of the troubles that have been plaguing the nearby town of Bradensbrook awaits at the top.

Black Rook Hold is a dark presence looming over the Howling Dale. It stands on an island on the west side of Val’sharah, connected to the mainland by a wide, intimidating bridge over the Emerald Bay. Inside, four bosses are waiting to give you a warm welcome.

The Ravenscrypt

URH481BWM5M71471018158618.jpg

The Amalgam of Souls: Immense soul energy was released when Gul’dan conducted the ritual to sever Illidan’s soul from his body at Black Rook Hold. This energy brought the souls of the Ravencrest clan back to their ancestral home—and residual soul energy has merged them into a massive monstrosity.

The Grand Hall

EI88JALZAZ281471018158906.jpg

Illysanna Ravencrest: The daughter of Lord Ravencrest, imprisoned for millennia in the Vault of the Wardens shortly after the War of the Ancients, found herself free after Maiev released the demon hunters from their prison. Returning to her ancestral home, she sacrificed everything—including her very soul—to defend what she could not during the War of the Ancients.

The Rooks’ Roost
Smashspite the Hateful:
A brutal, imposing Mo’arg Lieutenant, Smashspite the Hateful led the Legion’s invasion of Black Rook Hold and commanded defense of the keep from the air via his colony of felbats.

The Raven’s Crown

54Z3L7CSY9YJ1471018158619.jpg

Lord Kur’talos Ravencrest: Kur’talos Ravencrest, Lord of Black Rook Hold, was the commander of the Kal’dorei Resistance during the War of the Ancients until he was assassinated by Varo’then under the order of Queen Azshara. Millennia later, Gul’dan’s foul soul magic has awoken Ravencrest’s soul, and those of his ancestors, from their eternal repose. The Legion, seeking revenge gleefully forced his soul into his body and mesmerized him, forcing him to eternally relive the horrors of the War of the Ancients.

Darkheart Thicket

MHU6W4Y2RMPF1471018158909.jpg

Minimum Level: 98
Location: 
Val’sharah
Bosses: 4

In the shadow of Shaladrassil, the Nightmare permeates every inch of the once-lush forest. Where the eldest and greatest druids once tended to the woods, meditating beneath the great world tree, corruption and madness now reign. Deep within the tangled thicket, the Nightmare Lord Xavius works to break the will of his greatest prize.

Developer Insights: This dungeon represents the pinnacle of the Nightmare’s corruption in Azeroth, showing the most intense effects of its power on a grove that was once a sanctuary for all Azerothian druids. We began work on this dungeon very early in Legion's development, and it actually served to inform the look and feel of the Nightmare corruption in Val’sharah, letting our artists and level designers define maximum corruption and then de-escalate as distance from Shaladrassil increases.

Darkheart Thicket is an outdoor dungeon in what once was an idyllic wood in the shadow of Shaladrassil. Now nightmares roam unfettered.

0CP002DE52C91471018158930.jpg

Archdruid Glaidalis: Glaidalis was once known as among the most talented shapeshifters in all of Azeroth, and the elders of Moonglade would regularly send their most promising disciples to his care for instruction. But as has sadly too often been the case, those who are closest to nature are often the first to fall into the Nightmare’s clutches.

Oakheart: An ancient who formed from an offshoot of Shaladrassil itself, Oakheart has survived the Sundering, the Cataclysm and the countless blights. The ancient was able to weather these storms by drawing strength from the essence of the Dream itself. But now, that wellspring has become his undoing.

3W6AH55D1SI81471018159044.jpg

Dresaron: Once a young green drake, tending to whelps in the shadow of the great world tree, Dresaron is now engulfed in nightmare, lost in a fog of hatred and fear. He lashes out with powerful wings and a withering breath, unleashing his rage on any who stumble into his clutches.

Shade of Xavius: Once a powerful mage and a councilor to Queen Azshara, Xavius forged a pact with Sargeras to enable the Legion’s first invasion of Azeroth. Cursed and tormented in the wake of that defeat, Xavius now projects his true power from the Nightmare into our world, focusing his dark might to break the spirit of his old rival, Malfurion.

Who knows? :D You try to save him in the Darkheart Thicket dungeon along with Tyrande. It's literally a race against the forces of Xavius. Will you be too late or not?

If you really want to find out, I have addressed this death in one of my Spoilers articles.

      Gul'dan also drops vanity items that aren't visible under the Nighthold loot tables in the journal. Players on reddit have been reporting two toy drops off Gul'dan. Both were obtained on Normal or higher difficulty, so it's safe to assume that they won't drop in LFR.
      Skull of Corruption Is only lootable by Demon Hunters, but it can be traded to anyone else after, even sold in the Auction House. It makes your character kneel with a skull in his/her hand. Memory Cube is rewarded upon completing a quest line which starts by killing Chronomatic Anomaly that drops Mysterious Cube. When interacted with, players will "relive" various Legion cinematics. Golden Hearthstone Card: Lord Jaraxxus Turns the player into Lord Jaraxxus for one minute and replaces actionbars with emotes he does during the encounter.

      There's one more toy unique to Demon Hunters - Fel Focusing Crystal. It hasn't dropped yet. It's also BoE.

      As you maybe have already noticed, Mythic+ rewards have been increased with the latest reset and Nighthold's introduction, but there's more coming next week when mythic opens (and your M+ chests you earn this week will have that level of reward as well). So while the base ilevel in M+12 now is 870 (885 for your weekly chest) and that's the most you can get now, next week if you finish a M+15 you'll be able to get an 885 (900 in weekly chest).
      Ornyx (source)
      With the opening of the Nighthold on Normal and Heroic difficulties, the maximum item level for Warforged or Titanforged items is now 925. Any item that could previously drop at or above item level 895 can now reach a maximum of 925.
      Next week, when Mythic Nighthold releases, we’ll be increasing the cap on Mythic Keystone dungeon rewards from 12 to 15 (at 5 item levels per difficulty level). If you’re able to complete a Level 15 Keystone run this week, you’ll have a Mythic 15 reward waiting for you in your Order Hall cache next week.

      Touch of a Titan is a new quest offered by Arcanomancer Vridiel in Dalaran that rewards Distilled Titan Essence when you collect 50 Essence of Aman'Thul. The quest is here to upgrade existing Legendary items from 910 to item level 940.
      All Legendaries that drop now are of item level 940 by default. Existing Legendaries can be upgraded by completing the quest. The quest is repeatable. You can't hold more than 50 Essence of Aman'Thul at a time, so turn in the quest as soon as you can. You don't need to accept the quest for Essences to drop. The weekly cache gives 15 Essence of Aman'Thul. Each Nighthold boss drops 1 - 3 Essence of Aman'Thul. Winning 10 2v2 arenas awards 5 Essence of Aman'Thul. Winning 10 3v3 arenas awards 5 Essence of Aman'Thul. If you win Rated Battlegrounds 3 times, you can get 5 Essence of Aman'Thul. Emissary caches from world quests give 1 - 4 Essence of Aman'Thul each. According to redditor Not_athrowaweigh, you can farm up to 120 Essence of Aman'Thul before Mythic Nighthold opens next week, allowing the upgrade of two Legendary items.

      Methodical is in search of dedicated players that are looking to push content in a semi-hardcore environment. All of our raiders try to be on a first-name basis with each other. Our raids are very fun when it comes to farm and carries, however, we do clean up when it's time for progression. When it comes to raiding we do provide benefits, paid for by selling carries. 
      All-in-all we are looking for players willing to: consistently improve their performance, take responsibility, and synergize with a group of players. If this interests you, all of our info is below.
