Class Order Halls in Legion Alpha

Recommended Posts

14540-class-order-halls-in-legion-alpha.

Legion Alpha Build 20773 went live with various new additions to the game, the most interesting of them being the Class Order Halls, one of the expansion's main features.

 

Class Order Halls are going to replace Garrisons in Legion as the new main hub in the game, where players can meet others people of the same class, receive quests from well-known NPCs of their class and progress on their Artifacts. Most of these Class Order Halls are now seemingly completed in the Alpha.

 

Videos of most of the Class Order Halls have been around since last week. Now we get to see some of them with their resident NPCs, as well as the new Demon Hunter Order Hall. Before we take a look at the Class Order Halls, please remember that this is Alpha content and everything you see is subject to change.

 

 

Death Knight

Death Knights stayed true to their roots and will be remaining in Archerus, their original starting zone. The whole place looks pretty much the same, save for the new mission table. While this is disappointing for Death Knights, I am sure there will be some new interesting NPCs in that area.

 

 

Demon Hunter

The Demon Hunters' Order Hall is called The Fel Hammer and it's located in Mardum. It seems a bit weird that Demon Hunters are hanging out in a world that was once fully occupied by the Burning Legion. As expected, their Order Hall can be described as '50 Shades of Green and Black'. It also looks rather small compared to the other Order Halls.

 

 

Druid

Unlike Death Knights, Druids needed a change of scenery and they have replaced Moonglade with the Dreamgrove as their new home. The Druid Order Hall looks like a village placed in an idyllic location in the forests of Val'Sharah, one of the new zones. A circular open space, where the class NPCs are located, is surrounded by streams of water and stone paths leading to picturesque built-in-trees houses.

 

 

Hunter

Hunters settled in at Trueshot Lodge, located at the peaks of the Highmountains. The Lodge is a central large building of Night Elven architecture and it is surrounded by camping fires and tents, shooting targets and corrals for the Hunters' beloved pets. Even though everyone blames Hunters for pretty much everything (wipes, ninja pulls, needing everything), Blizzard has added yet another reason to hate them: a Hunter-only flight network.

 

 

Mage

It is no surprise that the Mage Order Hall is located in Dalaran, the city of Mages. The Hall of the Guardian can be characterized as a hidden sanctum, where the always eager to learn Mages can exchange secrets and acquire additional knowledge on the mysteries of the arcane. In my unbiased opinion, Mages - and everything about them, really - are awesome.

 

 

Monk

Remember the Wandering Isle, the starting zone for Pandaren which is actually a giant turtle? This is where the Monk Order Hall will be, although in a different instance than the Pandaren zone. It seems that the whole island is accessible, but the main hub will be in the middle shrine tower, called Temple of Five Dawns. Other than that, the zone looks unchanged.

 

 

Paladin

The Paladin Order Hall is located in Light's Hope Chapel, home of the Argent Dawn. Even though it is an underground hall, the presence of light is far from absent: rays of light come down from hatches on the ceiling, while candles make the atmosphere very imposing.

 

 

Priest

Netherblight Temple will be the home for Priests in Legion. The temple seems to be located in Karabor; it is easy to spot the Draenei influences on the architecture. Since Priest is the class with the most extreme differences between the three specialisations, there are separate rooms for each one of them.

 

 

Rogue

Rogues will be lurking in the Hall of Shadows, located in the Dalaran sewers. The lair of this sneaky class is quite similar to the original area in the Northrend Dalaran sewers, with the addition of vaults full of gold behind the tavern/inn and what looks like a fighting pit.

 

 

Shaman

The Shaman Order Hall is actually not ready yet, which makes sense since Shaman is the only class you can't play yet in the Legion Alpha. The image above is from an earlier Alpha build. The Hall is located in the Maelstrom and seems quite unfinished yet.

 

 

Warrior

The Warrior Order Hall is one of the most impressive ones. It looks like Warriors have occupied the Halls of Valor, the Valhalla of Warcraft. The Order Hall seems to be somewhere high, perhaps even floating in the air; its location should probably be in Stormheim. It is colored in shades of red and gold, while the decorations are complemented with numerous statues of legendary warriors.

 

 

Warlock

Last but not least, the Warlock Order Hall is the Seat of the Darkener and it is located in the Twisting Nether. Again: what's up with chilling around near the enemy's base? It looks a lot like the Demon Hunter Order hall, although it is bigger and in an outdoor area.

      Blizzard is looking into lifting transmog restrictions in Shadowlands and allow players to use Legion's Artifact appearances regardless of their specialization for transmog.
      Another interesting bit from the MrGM interview with Morgan Day deals with Legion Artifact appearances and transmog.
      Morgan revealed that the WoW team considers giving players the option to transmog Legion Artifact appearances regardless of specialization in Shadowlands. Note that this has not been officially confirmed yet, and Day said that the Artifacts would remain within the class should they lift the restrictions, as pointed out by r/wow moderator Sunscorch.
      Card The change would allow you to use the Discipline Priest's Light's Wrath for transmog on your Shadow Priest, for instance. Are you looking forward to the change?
      This is not the only change related to Legion Artifacts that we'll see in the Shadowlands, as Druids will be able to customize their Bear/Cat form independently of their currently equipped Legion Artifacts.

      So a lot of you probably wonder what's going to happen with Heirlooms after the leveling squish and changes in Shadowlands. Blizzard confirmed in an interview with MrGM that they would no longer provide XP bonuses!
      On the Alpha, we checked out the Heirloom Tab multiple times and found out that they no longer increase experience gains. We thought this was just a bug that would get fixed in future builds, but the opposite is true.

      Heirlooms will no longer provide Experience Bonuses in Shadowlands. They are replacing the XP bonuses with something that's not percentage-based, so maybe we will see other interesting effects on them that will be useful during the leveling process.
      Keep in mind that leveling in Shadowlands is much faster compared to what we currently have on live 8.3 servers, so the change might not be that bad, granted that the new effects will be worth it.
      You can watch the full interview with Morgan Day here.

      Content creators seem to have access to Beta servers already, and some functions that work there are currently not enabled on the Alpha. Towelliee, for example, recorded a video showcasing the new Legendary Crafting UI, giving us an idea about how we will craft Legendary Armor in Torghast in the new expansion.
      So in the Maw, there is Torghast, you enter the Tower, and there is a room called Runecarver's Cell where you craft your legendaries. The Runecarver is chained there, and you must give him mats to craft Legendary Armor.

      So first, you take a Base Item that comes from Professions and select the Legendary Power you want on the item.

      Next, you must select two secondary stats for your Legendary Armor.

      This whole process will cost you a new currency called Carcerus; According to the flavor text, it is a raw source of power found within Torghast used to fuel the Runecarver's Chamber.

      Video
      You can watch the whole process in the video below.
