wow Summary of Legion Artifacts and Class Order Halls Q&A

2 posts in this topic

Two days ago, Lead Quest Designer Craig Amai talked about Legion Artifacts and the related Class Order Hall questlines on a live stream. We have made a summary of all of his answers!

It took us some time, but the summary of Thursday's Q&A on Artifacts and Class Order Halls is finally ready. We realise that especially Artifacts are a topic of high interest for the playerbase and Craig Amai answered some really interesting questions on them. Question 5, in particular, where it is explained how the Artifact Knowledge system works, is commonly asked by many players.

Bear in mind that this is just a summary of the Q&A. You should definitely watch the VOD for the fully detailed answers.

Quote

1. Will the class order hall change as new patches arrive? Similar to how the Shipyard was added.
Artifacts and Order Halls will be relevant in the future with additional quest lines and content. The WoW team is interested in delivering strong patches that react to what the game needs over time.


2. Will there be more Artifact appearances in later content patches, at least colour variations?
Most of the community has got a sneak peak already. There is the base Artifact appearance, an upgraded one from the Class Hall campaign, a PvE one, a PvP one and hidden appearances. However, there is an additional appearance which will be added in a future patch, which you can see on calculators.


3. What’s being done to allow Artifact appearances to remain an option after Legion is over?
People will unlock all of their Artifact variants and then, in the next expansion, there will be some way to bring along those appearances. After Legion ends, you won’t be able to earn appearances anymore.


4. Will there be a way to respec your Artifact tree?
There is a respec mechanism for Artifacts; you can get it from one of the NPCs standing near your Artifact Forge, but it is a little expensive. They don’t want players to feel the need to customise their Artifact traits for every single encounter. To respec, you would have to use the same amount of Artifact Power needed to unlock new traits. Eventually you will unlock all of the traits, so you shouldn’t worry too much about it.


5. Can we get a formal explanation how Artifact Knowledge works over time?
When you start the expansion, you get your Artifact weapon; then, all Legion content brings in Artifact Power to unlock new traits. Every trait you purchase costs a little bit more than the last one. During the level-up experience, the cost has a small increase but at max level the cost will increase a lot more.


Artifact Knowledge increases the rate at which you gain Artifact Power. The system of Artifact Knowledge allows the team to reduce the gap between players.


At max level, you bring Order Resources to the researchers at your Order Hall. After a few days, the researchers come back with a tome that lets you unlock a new point of Artifact Knowledge. The cost of that research has fluctuated a lot during the Beta: it currently is on 500 Resources. They want to encourage people to do content for it, but they don’t want it to become a huge burden.


Artifact Knowledge goes up to 25 right now. The team might increase that a little bit during patches, but you won’t be working on it for the entire expansion.


To sum up, Artifact Power is raw currency to unlock new traits. Artifact Knowledge increases the rate at which you get Artifact Power. Artifact Knowledge is tied to your character.


6. How will the Artifact catch-up mechanics work in Legion for alts or alt specs?
It will be easier getting the first traits on your alt spec since you will already have accumulated enough Artifact Knowledge (which in turn leads to faster unlocking of traits). If you want to maintain multiple specs at a high level of progress, that will take twice as much effort – similar to playing a hybrid class and, for example, maintaining gear for both a tank and a dps spec.


Initially, one research work order will take 5 days to complete.  For people who are behind, people who come to the expansion later and, of course, for alts, your research will be sped up as the expansion progresses.

7. Will Artifact Knowledge be additive account-wide, ie, all alts learning it add to the total benefit?
That won’t be the case. It’s for one character and the weapons they own. It is not unlocked cumulatively across an account. They don't want you to feel the need to maintain an alt only to help your main.


8. How long will it take on average to max out an Artifact?
They are expecting it to take a few months to get every trait in your Artifact. It will be based on what type of player you are. Your first Artifact will go slower, the other ones will be faster with increased Artifacte Knowledge and the catch-up system.


It should be clarified that by saying “max out” they mean acquiring all the main traits on the tree. There is an additional trait that opens up after you unlock everything else that lets you put Artifact Power into your weapon, somewhat similar to the Paragon system in Diablo.


9. Why is there a massive balance difference in how you obtain certain hidden Artifact skins?
There are a few parts of the Artifact system that aren't equal between all of the classes. All classes should feel different and have unique experiences. This applies to hidden Artifact appearances as well.


Retribution Paladin and Arcane Mage are fun ones. Some are easier to get – for example, they require Honored with a faction or a high gold cost. Especially for Hunters, since some of them identify as bow Hunters and some as gun Hunters, they wanted to make these appearances more accessible.

10. Given that Artifacts ‘complete’ many specs, what are you doing to make sure levels 1 through 109 are smooth, balanced and rewarding?
The team balanced all of the classes against each other and then did another balance pass with all of the classes and their completed Artifacts. Classes should feel complete and interesting through the leveling experience. All specs should feel really good, even without Artifacts.


11. How will Artifact appearances obtained from completing achievements (raids, dungeons, archaeology) work? Per toon? Account wide?
The majority of the achievements for unlocking colours for Artifacts are  character-specific, there are few that are account-wide. You need to obtain the upgraded model before you can obtain the extra colors.


12 Are Artifacts a way you plan on tuning classes mid expansion?
All Artifact Traits will be tuning points, similar to other class abilities. The tuning process is quite complex. They don’t want to do huge tuning swings.


13. Is there overlap between individual Artifact quest lines? Will it feel repetitive?
For each specialisation, there is an individual questline to unlock the Artiftact. There is some overlap for some specs  (eg Discipline Priest and Arcane Mage or Balance Druid, Unholy Death Knight and Affliction Warlock). Out of all the specs, the majority of them are unique. There are a few specs that either share some content or the setting, but the majority are very unique experiences. Each class has its own unique Order Hall experience, too.


14. How will the lore for each Artifact be explained in-game and how will the newly introduced Artifacts be elevated to the level of status the established Artifacts have?
Artifacts are different from other weapons because of their history. The team wrote out a backstory for each Artifact and they put it in Artifact tomes inside the Class Halls. When you bring back Artifact Knowledge, the researcher will note that an additional part of the backstory has been unlocked for your weapon.


Some Acquisition questlines emphasise on the themes and the story of the weapons. A few acquisition questlines go to the same location, like Tyr’s Tomb. These questlines tie to each other, since you can see the aftermath of the previous spec.


15. Holy Paladins have been using 1H and shields for a long time. Why the change to a big 2H Mace with a book?
A few of the Artifacts hearken back to the original fantasy of the spec. For example, Uther carries a big hammer and Maraad has the gigantic hammer in the TBC cinematic. They wanted to make this weapon feel unique. The mace and shield has been what Holy Paladins have been doing for a long time, but you don’t actually use them in combat.


16. Will Tauren Feral and Guardian models have horns? Can we use the new cat model via glyph or another method?
The fantasy for Guardian Druids is to assume the avatar of Ursoc, similar with Ferals and Ashamane. Both of them didn’t have horns so it doesn’t make sense to make racial variations for horns.


Being able to swap back to the regular druid models is a good idea. It won't be in the shipping game but maybe in a patch.


17. What is going to happen with Artifacts during Legion patches? Will we get more perks to spend Artifact Power on?
The system is meant to last for a few months. They want the system to play out and see what players think of it. There are some intentions for patches but the team doesn't want to commit until they see how it goes. They want to react to what players need.


18. Why are fist weapons [in general and the Artifacts] invisible when sheathed?
This has happened for all of WoW. The Artifact fist weapons are invisible when sheathed because there aren't really points to sheathe them, they are too bulky and clip everything. That being said, fist weapons were chosen for certain specs because they will be very present in combat. There are special sheathing rules that let these weapons be visible during combat (eg an Elemental Shaman cast).


19. Why were most of the Order Hall teleports taken out of the classes that didn’t already have something similar?
These portals were available in early Beta, because they expected players would need to go to their Order Hall very frequently. However, the team changed their perspective on it. Visiting the Order Hall very frequently was way too much. Dalaran is meant to be the critical, central hub of the expansion. The portal network was changed and the Dalaran Hearthstone was added to make Dalaran easy to reach. There are also portals to and from your Order Halls and Dalaran


20. Will additional famous NPCs show up in Order Halls during quests or patches? Especially Warriors are missing famous NPCs.
For the most part, the famous NPCs have been introduced. The team may be bringing in a few in later patches, but they are likely bringing in existing characters and continuing their stories.


The Warrior Order Hall is an interesting case. In early Alpha, the Order Hall had ghosts for many famous Warriors. However, it didn’t feel appropriate for heroes from both factions to be all together in a Vrykul hall. They wanted a stronger neutral fantasy and thus they chose to focus on the Vrykul. Warriors have a new fantasy to take forward and experience. Therefore, they don't expect that more Warrior NPCs will be added into the Order Hall.


21. What is the reason behind limiting the number of Order Hall Champions you can have to 6?
It was important to recognize your champions, for them to be distinct. To start, the team limited the number of champions down to notable people.

In terms of the 6 out of 8 cap, they want you to make some choices as to who you care about and want to invest in.


22. Will there be a transmog NPC in the Order Hall? Can we redo talents in them? Do Class Order Halls generate rested XP?
Things like transmog NPCs, the bank, Auction House are not in the Order Hall. This is intentional so Dalaran feels like the major hub.


There is rested experience in the COH and you can redo your talents there. The way to swap talents is changing in the pre expansion patch. You can use the Tome of the Clear Mind (Tranquil Mind in Legion) to grant the ability to change talents freely for the next minute. When you are in a rested area, you do not need that tome and can change talents freely.


23. What was the reasoning behind allowing Trade Chat to be accessible in Order Halls? Aren’t you worried that players will just sequester themselves inside their Order Halls instead of going out in the world?
Trade Chat in the Order Hall was allowed so that players don't feel that  they are missing out on it. The team is not worried about this.

24. Why was Marksmanship Hunter given a bow and Beastmaster a gun?
Hunters have strong opinions about what weapon type is the main one for each spec. The team tried to use the other Artifact Appearances to give players another weapon type choice.


25. In the case that you make a bigger change to an Artifact trait, will they allow players to respect the Artifact Power for free?
The team doesn't want to be tweaking traits or abilities so strongly that it's a necessity. If they reach that point where they have to do it, then they will have to talk about it, but they prefer not to make those big changes and force respecs on players. To a degree, there's some pressure alleviated by the fact that you will have all the traits at some point.


26. Will Artifact Power progression, similar to item level, be a requirement to access content (eg. random groups)? How important is Artifact Power in premade groups?
There are no intentions of requiring specific levels of Artifact power for progression. There are still item level requirements, and putting relics in your Artifact increases your ilvl.


As far as premade groups are concerned, it’s hard to predict but they are not expecting there to be a wide divide between players. It's also relatively difficult to see what a player's Artifact is at, since it's not possible to inspect another players Artifact progression.

27. Is Acherus going to be utilized better as Death Knight base now or will it still be just runefore and training dummies?
Acherus has the same systems as the other Class Halls (Artifact Forge, champions, mission table, Artifact and Order Hall questlines). There are also some major events happening there. They didn’t want to change Acherus too much, since it was already ingame.


28. Was it a difficult process choosing all the Artifact weapons and/or Class Halls for each class?
In short, yes it was difficult. For the Order Halls, the team looked at what represents the class fantasy in the strongest way possible, what locations they connect with really well and they tried to balance the tension of faction differences by choosing neutral locations.


For the Artifact weapons, class fantasy, what stands out and feels unique, what had a strong history or an attachment to a hero or a location.

 

For the Developer Q&A (July 14), Senior Game Designer Jeremy Feasel will be answering questions on World Quests in Legion and the Demon Invasion event. If you have any questions, you can already submit them in this forum thread or on Twitter by using the hashtag #LegionQA.

      Meet the new threat of US-Illidan! Invective is a new raiding guild from Wildstar World First & US 2nd guilds Enigma & Subterfuge ready to shake up the Mythic race!
      Invective is a new Hardcore raiding guild from Wildstar World First & US 2nd guilds Enigma & Subterfuge. The guild wrote a mission statement on their website, where we learn more information about who they are and what plans they have when Tomb of Sargeras opens.
      The guild is based on Illidan (US) and plans to give other top guilds like Method, Exorsus or Limit a hard time racing for World Firsts. Invective's core members all derive from Hardcore Raiding MMO Wildstar and their Guild Master Sky has theorycrafting experience and many guilds followed his strategy guides in Wildstar. Wildstar's dying and Hardcore members were looking for a World of Warcraft guild, but none suited their needs and thus Invective came into existence.
      Tomb Schedule
      Invective plans to push and jump into next tier content as hard and much as they can.
      The guild will be day raiding the first day when Heroic Tomb opens, the second when servers go up They will be raiding the following 2 weeks every day, except Friday with raids starting up to 2 hours early and ending an hour or two later depending on the encounters Applicants
      Each applicant will be assessed directly and past achievements or logs have no value. All applications will go through a vocal interview and Mythic Keystone runs and an infinitely lasting trial that ends only when a player is up to their standards. The guild is currenctly recruiting all Classes and you can submit your application here.
      An ideal applicant
      Communicates through microphone, without it having any effect on gameplay Excels at to playing several classes and roles at top tier level Has flexible schedule / perfect attendance I've sat down with the Guild Master / Raid Leader of Invective Drunkbath and he answered some interesting questions ranging from the guild's current state up to preparation for the upcoming tier.
      How long have you been playing WoW since you transferred over from Wildstar?
      I hit level 110 on January 24, a week before Exorsus got the world first Gul'dan kill. The rest of the Wildstar people hit 110 another week or two after myself. Essentially, all the people from our Wildstar core (from Enigma & Subterfuge) hit 110 after the tier was over. We've only been playing for a short while, and I think a lot of people don't realize how much time and effort it takes to get a roster together to Mythic raid. As an experienced raider who day raided for 2 weeks straight in a successful world first environment I can truly say that roster boss will ALWAYS be the hardest boss in ANY game that requires over a dozen solid players that can dedicate the time we expect from our raiders. (We push raid hours till late, and start early as well). Some nights we would go until 3AM.
      How do you assess Nighthold in terms of difficulty / progression?
      Nighthold was extremely difficult for us, but not because of boss difficulty. The new Artifact system and Legendary loot system were HUGE time gates for us. I used a Blink Legendary (Belo'vir's Final Stand) on dps check bosses for days! To put it into perspective our first Skorp, Chrono, and Trill Mythic kills were half guild-half pug runs. And the 4th boss we decided to kill was Mythic Botanist. So our theory from logs was that Mythic Botanist in theory had the least dps check of the other bosses-- he was more of a mechanic check. With our Shamans' Totemic Revival and everybody getting P1+2 down solid, the fight was an easy number check but a hard mechanic check. Not to mention for our first kill half our roster was behind on AK and barely hitting 30-35 OLD artifact traits. It was pretty hard to get him since we kept trialing people and were mid forming the roster. The randomness of the Legendary loot system did not help either, since barely anybody had a best-in-slot combination of Legendaries for damage. If I had to put a finger on the hardest boss it would definitely be Gul'dan due to fight length-- though we killed it with nerfs I can only imagine having to get used to another 2minutes and the fel lord. The last phase is pretty easy, if all the simple tasks are done. I really enjoyed the strict positioning requirements the fight demanded. Time gate was in the end the hardest boss in the end, between roster boss time gate, legendary bis time gate, and artifact traits-- I don't know which was worse.
      How are the preparations for Tomb going? Have you been testing the raid out on PTR? Any particular fights you enjoy?
      We've been testing with an awesome US raiding guild Infinity-- they raid three days and do amazingly well for the amount of time they play the game. I highly recommend this guild for anybody that wants to achieve great things for a little amount of time put into the game in comparison to other hardcore guilds. One of the main reasons we came to WoW was because this expansion seems to have picked up its innovation and standards for its raids. There are a few notable fights in Tombs. I personally love the Sisters of The Moon encounter. The full moon mechanic is insanely creative, once again me and my positioning fetish... I have guides and docs for each fight (some are pure speculations, since we haven't tested them all yet, but you can figure a lot via the dungeon journal) but new fights are entertaining to experience.
      How many alts do players on your roster need to maintain? Is your roster complete? Are you filling in last spots? If so, which classes are open/closed for recruitment?
      We are currently recruiting ALL players that have high skill level, regardless of class. Class isn't a deal breaker since we are going to be doing 3 splits in Tombs (time gate new guild, only can do 3 effective splits) and 5 splits for tier 21. That would mean people need their Main character and 2 Alts of close/equal performance. In regards to our raiding schedule, our ideal applicant has a LOT of free time. I'm not here to convince people to quit their jobs or anything crazy like that. I could have forced a lot of people into this guild but I only want to have people that WANT to be here, that have the will power and their own idea of the guild. I am NOT responsible or going to influence your real life, our schedule is laid out flat and simple and if you can afford to personally make those times then great. We need decent players that can play their class and fulfill their roles in fights. People that can communicate clearly and calmly during hard progression pulls. People that can perform top numbers when the fights are NEW. Parsing months after fights are released and are on farm is not impressive. Seeing how people perform on PTR for example, is interesting and tells you a lot about your roster and what numbers they'd pull on equal gear footing as well as in new fights. We honestly just need more willing and available players, we could definitely use a boost to our Roster's quality, and as I said previously I vigorously recruit. I've poached a few semi-hard guild's Raid Leaders, since a raid leader has experience dealing with the social aspect of the game and even in a semi-hardcore guild when they just have themselves to worry about in a raid instead of an entire roster to lead, their performance sees a huge boost. They also fulfill roles and are the first to usually pickup mechanics and have good communication skills for fights. Unhappy with your guild you're leading? Join us! I want you!
      Any words about Patch 7.2.5?
      I am looking forward to 7.2.5. I am NOT expecting to hit world first, or even US 1st. Our alts are still time gated and our mains are as well when you compare our roster/player base to top guilds. I am super excited though to be somewhat competitive, as we should be with the amount of time we will be committing to the game. The Mythic raiding in WoW has definitely picked up its game in this expansion and that is EXACTLY why we came back to the game-- in hopes of more innovative and challenging raids. I think the developers of the game believe hardcore raiding is dead, but if I can get 150 people to fill out an application to the guild and go as far as all of them answering yes to "I will day raid" then there is definitely playerbase. It just needs to be done properly and Blizzard/WoW has the devs and the tools to do so. My hopes are high to see the rest of the fights, but ToS might be one of my favorite raids-- from environment and design to boss encounters. Push the limit of your old engine Blizz.

      Well, we were all very impressed last week when we heard Cenarius Normal mode went down to a single Demon Hunter, even one as skilled as Mione, but this one probably tops it. The relative difficulty aside (not sure which fight is actually tougher to solo), Chronomatic Anomaly is in the currently active raid and it's on the second hardest difficulty available, making it another damn impressive feat. Next stop Gul'dan?
      No particular comments on this video, which could mean it wasn't as hard a fight as Cenarius or might not. In any case this kill somewhat overshadowed another recent one, the second visit to Emerald Nightmare and downing of a particularly pesky spider, whom Mione calls a "complete target dummy :') but still a relatively tight dps check".
      Here's the armory link for the 918 ilev Demon Hunter.

      June 13th will see the end of the third season of Legion PvP and if it follows the timing of Season 2 and patch 7.2  we may be seeing 7.2.5 as early as June 13th. That timing seems about right, as the ToS raid has been (tentatively) planned for "mid to late June" and the raid itself will probably come a week after the patch launch.
      Blizzard (source)
      The time is nearly at hand to bring Legion PvP Season 3 to a close for all Arena and Battleground competitors.
      Season 3 – End of Season Rewards
      If you participated in Season 3, to ensure you receive the rewards that you’re due, please keep the following in mind:
      Refrain from transferring your character(s) to another realm or faction until after Legion Season 3 has ended. Legion Season 3 titles and mounts will be awarded approximately two weeks after the season ends. Faction-Based Rewards
      Don’t forget—end-of-season rewards are based on your faction. If you transfer your character to the other faction, you must have 150 wins after your transfer to receive the reward.
      When the dust settles, where will you stand this season?

      The Deaths of Chromie is a new solo scenario coming in Patch 7.2.5. If you manage to stop all 8 attacks on Chromie within the time limit (The Deaths of Chromie), you will get a Transmog set. These rewards seem a little less underwhelming than Sets we get from Trial of Style, but players will be running it mostly to get the pets.
      Spoiler Alert
      Completing all 8 attacks within the timer is your goal and for that you get the following sets that are recolors of gear from previous expansions. More information can be found in our early preview.
      Cloth Wearers
      Ensemble: Chronoscryer's Finery
      Leather Wearers
      Ensemble: Riftscarred Vestments
      Mail Wearers (Missing Shoulders)
      Ensemble: Epoch Sentinel's Mail
      Plate Wearers

      46 new Legendary items have been added to the game in Patch 7.2.5 up to the most recent build 24163 and it's become difficult to keep track of them all, which is why we created a list of all new Legendary items sorted by class.
      Patch 7.2.5 brings almost 50 new Legendary items to the game.
      Blizzard got inspired by Diablo's Hellfire Amulets and brought them to World of Warcraft in 7.2.5.
      Legendary Items in 7.2.5
      Legendaries dropping after Patch 7.2.5 is live will have a new base item level 970. Existing Legendary items can be upgraded with Stabilized Titan Essence to 970. The quest is very similar to how Distilled Titan Essence worked when Patch 7.1.5 was released. More information can be found here.
      Table of Contents
