wow Class Order Halls in Legion Alpha

1 post in this topic

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.

      Today's blue posts round-up covers a lot of PTR class discussions, like changes to the new golden 7.2 Unholy Death Knight Trait (Festering Talons) or Druid's Intimidating Roar. On Twitter, we learn there are currently no plans to increase the amount of Legendary items one can wear in 7.2. It may come in future, but they're undecided.
      Death Knight
      The new 7.2 golden trait for Unholy (Festering Talons) will be updated in a future build.
      Sigma (Source)
      The gold trait should be changed in an upcoming PTR build to something that doesn't add Festering Wounds (and therefore resources and GCDs) to the rotation, since Unholy is still a bit swamped. Druid
      Intimidating Roar will root targets instead of snaring them in 7.2.
      Sigma (Source)
      While I am somewhat loath to respond to a thread where 23 of 25 posts are by the same person (and I apologize in advance to my colleagues from Community about this), it turns out that this is being changed in 7.2. Intimidating Roar will root targets rather than snaring them by 50%. We felt the current behavior was inconsistent with the tooltip, and also that the talent shouldn't feel like it adds risk to the ability that isn't present in the untalented version. Mage
      Further tuning for Frost Mages is underway.
      Sigma (Source)
      Thanks for the detailed look. We agree there could be some cleanup around proc minutiae and Winter's Chill timing, including getting rid of the possibility of the double Ice Lance.

      Few other minor notes:
      --Frozen Touch is slightly underpowered, but we likely have to be careful with it until we do something about the possibility of infinite Thermal Void rotations.
      --Glacial Spike is intended to double-dip crit on the Icicle (Mastery: Icicles) portion of the damage, but it would be better if it didn't double-dip % damage buffs such as the ones you mentioned.
      --Glacial Eruption should be on PTR soon, but it will be able to Shatter. Rogue
      Discussion revolving around Roll the Bones and True Bearing.
      Sigma (Source)
      Overall it would be more ideal if the Roll the Bones buffs were closer in value. True Bearing has gradually crept up over the course of the expansion (around the time of Legion launch, I believe Shark Infested Waters was considered best, and they haven't changed much since then). I expect True Bearing climbs in value as the rotation gets faster due to stat increases and other bonuses being added over the course of the expansion, which all feed into the True Bearing positive feedback loop. Simply making it baseline would speed up the spec even further and contribute to the energy flood and other issues that it can have. While the similar effect was passive in Warlords, I'm sure (I haven't dug into this closely) that the Legion spec churns combo points much more rapidly. In any case the Legion version of True Bearing has the added synergy with Marked for Death that heaps even more combo points into the rotation during True Bearing.

      Point being, while there's not a specific plan yet for balancing out the different Roll the Bones buffs, we agree that it would be better they were more even again. Longer-term, there's something to be said for tweaking the rules/probabilities of Roll the Bones in a way that would further reduce the value of rerolling frequently. Warlock
      Afflicition should feel most at home when applying dots to multiple targets (multi-dotting) and if Tier 20 Set Bonuses (Item - Warlock T20 Affliction 2P Bonus //  Item - Warlock T20 Affliction 4P Bonus) interfere, they will get changed. Overall, different specs within pure DPS classes should have better delineated distinct strengths than they have right now.
      Sigma (Source)
      We do agree that Affliction should feel most at home when it is applying DoTs to multiple targets. With specs like this where the basic mechanics and history of the spec lean towards being strong in one area, there's often a fine line to draw on how it should perform in the other areas (here, single-target damage). It shouldn't feel useless, but should feel like other players may have the advantage there. It's fine for a talent like Malefic Grasp to exist, but this logic probably implies it's slightly stronger than would be ideal. It's good feedback on the preliminary T20 set bonuses that they might push Affliction _away_ from feeling good when multi-dotting, which is something we'd want to avoid.

      More broadly and looking ahead to the future, we agree that different specs--especially different specs within a pure DPS class--should have better delineated distinct strengths than they currently have in some cases. That doesn't mean the magnitude of the difference has to be very large (see the "useless" comment above). Especially in a context like single-target DPS, which is the subject of intense analysis and scrutiny, even a few % of difference in DPS is more than enough for players to notice and take seriously as a strength or weakness of a spec. Simply that it should be more clear what the scenario is that each spec has to look forward to as the place where it stands out, such as sustained multi-dotting for Affliction, or situations that allow Destruction to leverage Havoc especially well.

      There are no plans for 7.2 to increase the number of Legendary items you can wear (it may come in the future). Power Ascended is the gating behind new pets, Class Mount tints. To purchase them, one needs a fully- unlocked Artifact weapon. There are only four pets (3 for Death Knights, 1 for Monk), a Pepe toy for Demon Hunters and different Class Mount tints that you get for additional Order Resources.

      Guardian Druids get a new bear form appearance through Claws of Ursoc in Patch 7.2. The bear form was first previewed at BlizzCon last year. Four color variations of the new form are available.
      We're not sure how to unlock the first tint yet, but the other tints have their requirements added:
      Tint 2 - Defeat Kil'jaeden on Heroic difficulty using this Artifact appearance Tint 3 - Win 10 Rated Battlegrounds with this Artifact appearance Tint 4 - Defeat all dungeon bosses with this Artifact appearance Below are screenshots of the bear form

      In Patch 7.2, every class can unlock a Class Mount after completing Broken Isles Pathfinder, Part Two. Some will change colors based on specialization, while others can be earned from Power Ascended. Now that we've previewed them separately, it's time for a summary!
      Overview of all Class Mounts and their tints coming in Patch 7.2.
