Legion Alpha: New Dungeon and Battlegrounds!

Recommended Posts


Time is ticking and the Legion Alpha is changing with it! It looks like we've got a new dungeon to play with, as well as presumed new battlegrounds in the works.


The new dungeon that hit the servers last night was the Vault of the Wardens. It's a 5-man instance located in the Broken Isles, but we've actually seen it already in the Alpha. When starting a Demon Hunter, the questline will eventually lead to you waking up after being imprisoned in the Vault. You help to battle the Legion forces inside, but it seems we will be returning to clear out the riff-raff.


The dungeon itself is actually pretty bugged at the moment, with quite a few issues, but there have been groups clearing the dungeon. You can check out a playthrough of it posted by Sco, the GM of Method, who was playing with members of the guild Exorsus from Russia.



You can check out his stream and YouTube for more content.


If you're interested in reading the feedback of the new dungeon, you can check out the US and EU forum posts.


In other news, it appears there might be a new battleground coming with the new expansion, but it is yet to be confirmed. User Exelan-WOW posted on Reddit an album of screenshots showing a "Dev Map" in the battleground queue menu, found here. The comments on the thread are rife with speculation as to whether or not the Assault on Stormwind is simply a placeholder for a starting scenario, or if we really will get a 20v20 battleground based on the capital.


In these screenshots we can also see a 40v40 map that is currently named after an encounter designer, Nathaniel Chapman. Might this be the map that was datamined in WOTLK, where a battleground is based on Azshara? 


Regardless, it's always exciting to see the potential for new PvP content amidst all the new dungeons and raids!

      Say goodbye to Flightstones and hello to Valorstones in the War Within expansion.
      In the War Within expansion, Flightstones have been renamed Valorstones, and you'll unlock them when you reach Level 80. Valorstones are commonly awarded for completing almost all types of seasonal content, including max-level campaign quests.
      They function just like Dragonflight Flightstones for upgrading gear.
      Your character can hold up to 2,000 Valorstones, as shown in the screenshot.

      The crest system from Dragonflight is also making a comeback, with new crests being added each season.

      ConzilF2P has shattered the speed clear record for Temple of the Jade Serpent in MoP Remix, completing it with their Level 20 character in under 50 seconds and beating the previous record by an impressive 10 seconds!
      Yesterday, we showcased what a trial character with 8,000 threads could achieve by clearing the Temple of the Jade Serpent in 1 minute. Today, that record has been obliterated by ConzilF2P, who managed to complete the same dungeon in under 50 seconds with their Level 20 character and 10,166 threads!
      Check out the full video of this incredible run below.
      You are most welcome and congrats!

      Once you finish the main campaign in the War Within expansion with your first character, a whole bunch of new activities will open up for you.
      After completing the main campaign in the new expansion, you'll see a Campaign Completion Screen that informs you about the new features available to your character.

      You can start working on unlocking the new Earthen Allied Race. World Quests and Events are now available and can be viewed on your map. Your alts will have immediate access to World Quests and can level up in any order without having to complete the main campaign again.
      Reaching Level 80 unlocks the remaining max-level Dungeons and World Bosses automatically. The Earthen require completing additional side quests.

      Adventure Mode is returning in the War Within expansion and we've got the details.
      When you hit Level 80 in the War Within expansion, you can start the first chapter of the max-level campaign by talking to Alleria Windrunner in Azj-Kahet.
      When you accept "The Fleet Arrives" quest and get to Dornogal, you will unlock Adventure Mode in Khaz Algar for your Warband.

      This means your future characters can complete zones in any order and access World Quests immediately as they enter Khaz Algar.
