Legion Alpha: Rogue Class Hall and Dalaran PvP

Recommended Posts

15659-legion-alpha-rogue-class-hall-and-

The Alpha servers have seen some big changes over the past few days, but the new additions to the city of Dalaran itself are pretty difficult to not notice. Make sure you know what's been updated for the Rogue Class Hall, as well as the introduction of the alternative to Ashran!

 

There was huge outcry when it was announced that the Rogue Order Hall was set to be the Dalaran sewers and this continued when players actually saw what the zone looked like. It looks like Blizzard haven't forgotten about our stealthy friends, as evidenced by the changes that hit the zone in the last build. Take a look at some of the newest additions in the images below:

Is that a secret door entrance? You bet it is!

 

One of the most immediately noticeable changes is the introduction of a new entrance for the Rogues. Rather than the extremely noticeable sewer duct that was previously used, you now have to present your insignia to certain NPCs within Dalaran. They can open up the secret doors for you, allowing you to enter the Class Hall.

The Outlaws have definitely been out plundering some more treasure!

As if plundering wasn't enough, it looks like we're going to be walking the plank!

This is the view from the edge of the plank, looking out over the Broken Isles.

 

As you can see, the class hall is looking more like a proper establishment for Rogues, rather than just the sewers. Elsewhere in Dalaran, it looks like PvP might be making a comeback in the form of the Underbelly PvP system. Players can kill rares in the sewers in order to gather a new currency, Sightless Eyes. These currently can only be used to bribe the guards around the area so that they will turn a blind eye to any PvP actions. This means players can fight without the interruption of any guards stepping in. If players require help once more, they'll need to pay the guards enough to make them step in.

 

Amidst the PvP chaos, chests will spawn that players can loot, but beware of enemies trying to stop you. The fact that these chests contain more Sightless Eyes hints at the fact that this currency might actually be used in the future for something other than just bribing the guards. 

 

This new PvP system might be able to make up for Ashran and be what it was intended to be. A fun, exciting and challenging style of PvP that takes you out of the same old arenas and battlegrounds.

 

The fighting will mostly take place away from other areas of Dalaran, so unless you're going looking for a battle, I'd stay away!

      With the XP nerfs now live on retail, leveling up characters in MoP Remix is faster than ever. Expect to save at least 40 minutes when reaching Level 70!
      The War Within pre-patch introduced significant XP nerfs, lowering the amount of XP needed to reach Level 70. Players in MoP Remix are already noticing the difference with drastically reduced leveling times.
      One player shared their /played time, hitting Level 70 in just 1 hour and 12 minutes by only doing normal/heroic dungeon farms and opening mail around Level 40.
      This player, with about 149% XP on their cloak, noted that before the pre-patch, it took 1 hour and 52 minutes to reach Level 70. The XP nerfs effectively shaved off at least 40 minutes from the leveling process.
      Before the War Within pre-patch, we saw some impressive records of players reaching Level 70 in MoP Remix in as little as 30 or 48 minutes. With these new XP nerfs, it's only a matter of time before someone hits max level in MoP Remix in as little as 20 minutes!

      Switch Flight Style works with Dracthyr's Soar in the War Within pre-patch.
      This means you can use Steady Flight on your Dracthyr Evoker, instead of Skyriding, if you prefer that.
      Switch Flight Style unlocks at Level 20 and you'll find the option in your Spellbook. Keep in mind that you must still unlock Steady Flight in Shadowlands and Dragonflight zones, and the same applies to Khaz Algar.

      Now that Warbands are available on live servers, all your characters can access dungeon portals without needing to complete a single M+ key!
      This even includes the MoP Challenge Mode portals, which are no longer obtainable, and possibly the Fated/Awakened raid portals too.
      To unlock the portals in Mythic+, you must complete a Keystone Level 10 or higher dungeon in time.

      Starting with the War Within pre-patch, Blizzard has removed the one-per-server limit on Dracthyr Evokers.
      Players have noticed that they can now have multiple Dracthyr Evokers on a single realm. Evokers now start at Level 10 and Blizzard still plans to add more class options in a future update.
