Patch 6.2 Preview - Ashran Updates

Recommended Posts



Patch 6.2 will bring updates and additions to the PvP zone, Ashran, including new quests and a whole new underground excavation area. Faction bosses and events will provide Honor in 6.2, while the new quests will be the source of Conquest points going forward.


Here are the complete details:


In Patch 6.2, Warlords of Draenor’s PvP zone Ashran is getting some new quests and an eerie new area to explore. Here’s a rundown of what you’ll encounter on the glorious battlefield between Warspear and Stormshield.


Warning: Here be spoilers!


New Quests


Faction bosses and events will no longer reward Conquest points after Patch 6.2, but will continue to reward Honor points and strongboxes. To fill your pockets with lots of Conquest points going forward, you’ll want to pick up and complete these new quests:

  • Slay Them All! – A weekly quest to rack up 200 honor kills for a reward of 200 Conquest points.
  • Ashran Dominance – Rewards 500 Conquest points when you kill the enemy faction boss and win five events—also weekly.
  • Continue the Domination – A repeatable quest that unlocks after Ashran Dominance is completed. Rewards 500 Conquest points when you kill the enemy faction boss and win five events.



This is new. What could be going on in here?


Meanwhile, Belloc Brightblade and Harrison Jones have followed the siren-like call of a new artifact being unearthed in Ashran. They each offer a quest leading you to fight your way into a new section of the zone. . . . 


A New Area


The Ashran Excavation has been revealed, and its unearthly inhabitants are none too pleased about the presence of you and other visitors.


Once you enter the Ashran Excavation, you’ll find yourself inside a very large underground area. Similar to other parts of Ashran, a competitive event is randomly triggered in the area. When the event begins, your goal is to collect Apexis Marks of Redemption by taking down the Arakkoa ghosts that haunt the depths.




Later on, you can tell all the ghost stories you want.


Somewhere in this underground labyrinth, you’ll find a ghost named Rukmaz—one of the few entities here who doesn’t want to kill you on sight. He’s a collector of Marks of Redemption, and he’s waiting to award victory over the Ashran Excavation to whichever faction turns in 50 Marks first.



Rukmaz doesn’t like being called “the friendly ghost”.




There’s a lot going on in Ashran, and if you haven’t fully explored Draenor’s sprawling PvP zone yet, you might want to check out Wowhead’s Ashran Reputations Guide and their Comprehensive Ashran Guide by HelloKitty.  Enemy players are in there right now, just waiting for you to kill them.

      Here's an easy way to skip from Kologarn to General Vezzax in Ulduar as a Demon Hunter, thanks to gliding.
      After defeating Kologarn, Demon Hunters can easily skip from "The Shattered Walkway" area to "The Descent into Madness" in Ulduar, where General Vezzax is located.
      Cobblenation has shared the skip, and we've reached out to the OP to clarify, and you need to kill are Flame Leviathan, XT, Kologarn, and General Vezzsx to engage Yogg-Saron, which makes farming of Mimiron’s Head easier than ever!

      If you have a ton of alts, you will definitely appreciate a macro that removes all quests from your quest log with the single click of a button.
      Scholle_0 created a macro that easily removes all quests from your quest log! It's handy if you have many alts and want to have an empty quest log before heading into the Shadowlands.
      Type /m in the chat window, create a new macro and paste the following code.
      /run for i=1,C_QuestLog.GetNumQuestLogEntries() do C_QuestLog.SetSelectedQuest(C_QuestLog.GetInfo(i).questID); C_QuestLog.SetAbandonQuest(); C_QuestLog.AbandonQuest() end; Save the macro, press the button, and voila!
      The author also created an addon called Abandon All Quests if you don't want to use any macros!

      The pre-patch event ends 1 hour before Shadowlands goes live and this is your last chance to get the 34-slot bag, the pet, or  Accursed Keepsake before they get removed from the game permanently.
      You don't need to buy Shadowlands to participate in the event! The only requirement is having a max-level character.  You can find a list of maps with all the rares here.
      Papa's Mint Condition Bag is a 34-slot bag that drops from Bronjahm, an Elite in Icecrown that you can find at 71,38. He's up only once every 200 minutes, and the drop chance is small, so it will take a while before you get your bag. Check out this site to see when Bronjahm spawns next. Putrid Geist is a battle pet that you can purchase for 20 Argent Commendations, a currency from daily quests in Icecrown. Catch-up gear of Item Level 100, on par with Normal difficulty Ny'alotha, can be purchased for 15 Argent Commendations, each from quartermasters in Stormwind and Orgrimmar. If you want to purchase the whole set, you will need to gather 135 Argent Commendations. Icecrown Elites drop Item Level 110 gear, and Blizzard reduced the timer to 10 minutes. Accursed Keepsake is an upgraded Haunted Memento that has a small chance to drop from any Icecrown Elite. It spawns a ghost that follows you when you have the item in your inventory. Both items interact with each other. For more details, check out our pre-patch event guide!

      Blizzard has hotfixed a debuff to the game that prevents you from gaining an early advantage in the Maw.
      Eye of the Jailer has been hotfixed into the game recently, and the debuff decreases Stygia and Ve'nari Reputation gains by 100%. It's probably been implemented to prevent players from gaining an unfair advantage in the Shadowlands endgame zone, similar to how Mythic dungeons, Torghast, and the first weekly Renown quest will only become available after reset in each region.
      Ve'nari offers two weekly quests that reward 425 Stygia and reputation, and you won't be able to gain Stygia or reputation with her until after the reset.

      We have a great diagram of "A soul's journey through the Shadowlands by Steinerinoo, which very clearly shows how the machine of death was working before the Jailer(?) messed things up. We can track the various types of souls and the zones and Covenants they go to, what happens to then if they are redeemed or if they are not, how the wild gods are treated and more. 
      A few important notes:
      There are actually infinite realms in the Shadowlands, the ones we see are merely the most prominent and relevant to the story at hand. The Arbiter's ability to directly throw a soul into the Maw is unclear. Mostly only those that fail at redemption go to the Maw, but there have been very, very few exceptions where he threw them directly there.
      Anyone else REALLY want to click on "Buddy"?
