wow Illidan Quest NOT Linked to Legendary Upgrades

18 posts in this topic

Well, we've finally received word from Blizzard on the recent rumor on whether the Illidan quest chain (with its 80 Soul Fragments and all) is related to the legendary upgrade mechanic coming in 7.1.5 and Nighthold, and it was only a rumor after all!

As mentioned, it isn't clear how this all got started, but it seems that the quest being missing from the PTR was enough to trigger some speculation and the Illidan chain connection somehow became the front-runner in the rumor olympics.

Hopefully not too many players frantically did the quest line on many characters due to the rumor, but hey, at least there's some 870+ loot at the end of it if you did.

I'm kinda glad the rumor got started. I thought that little quest line was just going to drag me through tons of annoying little "go here and talk to naaru" quests. Didn't realise there was this big quest with a reward at the end.

Even if the Legendary upgrade isn't tied to this quest, it still gives me something to do.

Please don't say "it's not clear how this all got started". It all started with this huge thread on mmo-c which was reposted everywhere after that - on the official forums (and also became a big thread), then  you posted it on icy-veins too and ofcourse, it was posted on every place wow-related on the internet: other websites, Reddit, social media, youtube channels and so on. Blizz didn't bothered to reply until now, sadly. So really, how this all got started? The answer is simple, the people responsible for "how it all got started" are the people who spread the unverified/false rumors in the first place.

I meant it as it's not clear who got the idea to randomly choose the Illidan quest line as being connected to the legendary thing. It seems just random. But you are right about other sites and us reporting on it making it bigger than it was,. As for me I was basically posting about the discussion that existed, which was already getting traction in the community at the time (a lot of tweets asking about it etc). I was aware there were no firm links to prove there was a connection (but it may not have come across as such in the article and people usually tend to either just read headlines or glance over an article's text, so I take some responsibility for it as well).

I kinda saw it as one of those "even if this isn't true we should say how shit it is JUST IN CASE it might be" things.

Even though I am almost done with this, I am glad for others that they don't have to grind through this for the upgrade.  The less grinding the better.

Speaking of Legendaries though, I hope we can get some kind of catch-up for the equip limit at some point.

I'm just getting the ability to wear two in a week, it'll be a pretty painful wait for any newer 110s at this point.

Once they start adding more things that let you wear more legendaries at once, or maybe if they increased the baseline limit from 1 to 2 or something, that may help. Or at least lowering the time it takes for order hall advancements to complete :p

You mean the legendary upgrade? It'll just be gathering items from Nighthold and when you have enough you complete the quest and get the item that can upgrade.

Actually, Blizz said yesterday that they will be reducing order hall research duration in 7.1.5. They didn't say by how much, but presumably it'll be at least half.

I wouldn't be able to tell the exact time, but I had roughly 5 or 6 days left on my Legends of the Wild and it was completed when I logged on just now. :p

It's truly amazing how quickly people take a tiny rumour and turn it into something that causes so much trouble!

      With opening of the Nighthold, new World Quests have appeared on the world map. They are purple, tagged similar to world boss quests and you can find them in Suramar, which is a bug. You need to venture into Nighthold and even kill some bosses to access the objectives. Throne of Thunder mini-bosses at least held some loot. These bosses do not award anything aside from world quest completion rewards.

      Nighthold World Quests
      The quests reward 500 reputation with the Nightfallen. There are many more quests, but at this time they are not available in the database yet.
      The Nighthold: Ettin Your Foot In The Door is the first quest available. You need to down Skorpyron to access and defeat Torm the Brute. When completed you'll get 1000 Order Resources. The Nighthold: Seeds of Destruction
    • By Stan
      Lord of the Shadow Council is ready, but so are you!
      The Nighthold opens this week and finally we'll be able to put Gul'dan to justice. Our Survival Guide has all the information you need to know about the latest Legion raid.
      No prerequisites required to enter the raid. Ahead of the Curve: Xavius is removed when Nighthold opens. The raid has ten bosses and is non-linear. The first 3 bosses need to be defeated in a specific order:  Skorpyron > Chronomatic Anomaly > Trilliax After that you get access to 5 bosses that can be killed in any order. The last two bosses that need to be killed are Elisande > Gul'dan. Defeating Gul'dan on Mythic difficulty grants the Mythic: Gul'dan achievement and the "Vengeance Incarnate" title. Players will finally end the Suramar story line and acquire the Arcanist's Manasaber mount. If you've completed Unleashed Monstrosities, you can work your way toward completing Improving on History to unlock the base appearance. The Direbeak and Bloodgazer falcosaurs require Nighthold to open before you can get your mounts - Brilliant Direbeak & Predatory Bloodgazer. Glory of the Legion Raider also has some Nighthold-related achievements and rewards Defiled Reins. Raid Schedule
      Normal and Heroic difficulties are available starting January 17. Mythic difficulty and the first wing of Raid Finder will open one week later.
      Blizzard Entertainment
      Raid Schedule: Tuesday, January 17: Nighthold Normal and Heroic difficulties open. Tuesday, January 24: Nighthold Mythic difficulty and Raid Finder Wing 1 (Arcing Aqueducts) open. Tuesday, February 7: Nighthold Raid Finder Wing 2 (Royal Athenaeum) opens. Tuesday, February 21: Nighthold Raid Finder Wing 3 (Nightspire) opens.

      Our guide section has been updated with boss guides for Nighthold, don't forget to check them out to be Ahead of the Curve: Gul'dan. Should you need any help, feel free to post in the PvE forum.

      All 36 specializations in our Class Guides have been updated for the latest patch.
      Legendary Items
      After Nighthold opens, players will be able to upgrade their existing item level 910 Legendaries to item level 940. Emissary caches will start dropping Legendaries of item level 940 by default.
      Aerythlea
      Since the release of Patch 7.1.5, we've received a number of questions relating to the Nighthold Legendary item upgrades and how that process will work. We'd like to provide some clarity on what you can expect next week.
      When the Nighthold opens next week, players who have acquired at least one Legion Legendary item will find a quest in Dalaran to upgrade a Legendary from item level 910 to 940. This quest involves collecting a number of
      Essence of Aman'Thul, which can be found in the following locations:
      Nighthold Raid Bosses Weekly Mythic Keystone Cache Emissary Bags PvP Weekly Quests Once you have completed the quest, you'll be given a Distilled Titan Essence, which can be consumed to upgrade a Legion Legendary item to level 940. The quest is repeatable, so you'll be able to earn as many Distilled Titan Essences as you need to upgrade any Legendaries you have.
      Additionally, once the Nighthold is open, any new Legendaries you discover will already be item level 940. Note that this does not apply retroactively to Emissary Bags that you may already have in your inventory when the time comes. Only new bags earned after the Nighthold is open have the chance to reward an item level 940 Legendary.

      Tier 19 Sets
      Nighthold is the first raid to drop sets in the Legion and we've taken a closer look at Tier 19 here.
      Nighthold Mounts
      Fiendish Hellfire Core is a guaranteed drop from Gul'dan on Mythic difficulty. The drop chance will be reduced to 1% after a new expansion is released.
      Living Infernal Core has a chance to drop off of Gul'dan on any difficulty except LFR.

      Humongris is up this week. Search for the Pocket Wizard world quest in Val'sharah. If you've been killing Legion World Bosses since Legion launch, you should have already unlocked the Artifact appearance via Unleashed Monstrosities.

      Those Suramar Bosses don't like to be alone, as Ana-Mouz joins Humongris this week.
       
      It seems those Suramarian bosses just do not play by the rules! We have two World Bosses up this week as of today, with Ana-Mouz showing up in Felsoul Hold. This has happened already with another Suramar boss, Na'zak the Fiend, and Blizzard had confirmed it was intended:
      And here's her loot, including the Vantus Rune for Tichondrius:
