Details on the Legion Invasions

PcGamesN talked with Jeremy Feasel, who revealed a few things about the upcoming demon invasions.

We have already seen a preview of the demon invasion via an official blog post and now it's time to learn some details on their schedule. Game designer Jeremy Feasel explained to PcGamesN that the invasion forces will feel like an RTS army: they will have their own barracks, portals, defensive structures and troops. The scale of these events will be much larger than the past pre-expansion events.

As far as the timeline of these invasions is concerned, during the first week they will only occur every four hours in a couple of zones. This will increase by 300% every week for two weeks until everything is under attack all the time, meaning that in the second week there will an invasion every hours across six zones and then there will always be an invasion up in all of the affected zones.

Moreover, the demon invasions will start in more remote zones (like Tanaris) and they will slowly expand to more zones, making their way to the capital cities of Azeroth's factions. At the same time, when the Legion invasion starts, the Dark Whispers event will also begin in major cities. Players will be able to embrace the darkness and turn on their fellow players!

You can read the entire article here. The demon invasions will start on August 9.

I am hoping they make the Dreadlord transformation very powerful, I want to see chaos in the capital cities once again. One of the most fun things in maplestory for me was getting a really high lvl boss bag and dropping it in the cities . The weak perished, some of the strong rallied to support them, the rest watched and giggled with glee. I want to feel that joy again XD.

i may in fact be a terrible person........

Looks like this will be a hell of a journey. To be honest I am pretty excited about Legion and what it brings. Ready for the big day all the way..

Since I only started playing when WoD was out already, I'm quite looking forward to seeing everything that happens before/after a new expansion launch.

This sounds really exciting, upping the invasions each week will make you feel like Azeroth is really under increasing attacks from the legion, good show Blizzard!

Maining my druid, with instant flight form, will really help when players start crashing in main cities :D

I don't know about the terrible person part..........because this sounds amazing to me!  I immediately thought to myself, "I want that power so I can lay waste to all of Org!"  If the invasions actually live up to the hype, and I'm hoping they do, I will be all in for this expansion.  Either way I went ahead and turned in a vacation request for August 30th and 31st, because lets face it WoW expansion beats work.

This sounds fun and all but... what goodies do we get out of this? Achievement? Tabard? Toy? Nothing? Just curious if anyone knows.

If I remember right, battle pets and xmog gear I think.

This pre-expansion has a completely different feel to it than the last three.  I think quite a few players are excited to see how everything plays out and how much chaos ensues.

      Update: We have a tweet from the devs clarifying the 50% nerf to Azerite traits in PvP, noting that it supercedes all previous individual nerfs:
      _____________________________________________
      Original post:
      Here come the first hotfixes of the new patch (which, for some reason, isn't patch 8.1.5, or 8.1.1 for that matter...) featuring a flat 50% nerf to ALL Azerite traits in PvP, Mythic+ changes in the form or Fortified and Bolster affixes not affecting Reaping ghosts and the Motherlode getting some enemy forces tweaks, as well as some invisibility potion changes.
      January 22 (source)
      Dungeons and Raids
      Fortified and Bolster will no longer increase the health of the Reaping ghosts. The MOTHERLODE!! Fixed an issue causing Venture Co. Earthshapers to count double towards Enemy Forces criteria on Mythic Keystone difficulties. Slightly reduced the total Enemy Forces count. Items
      Potions that grant the player Invisibility (such as Demitri's Draught of Deception ) now place a 5-minute cooldown on all other potion types (was 10 minutes). The shared cooldown time for invisibility potions remains 10 minutes. Fixed a bug that prevented Tome of Town Portal from being properly affected by Seafarer’s Hearth. Player versus Player
      Every portion of Azerite powers that scale with item level have been reduced by 50% in PvP. Developers’ notes: This addresses how the additional new ring of traits affects power in PvP. The change includes all spec- and class-specific traits, as well as all multi-class traits, regardless of which ring they’re on. This change also overwrites all previous reductions to Azerite Traits in PvP that occurred during Season 1, as they will all now have their reduction set to 50% effectiveness. Non-scaling and non-stacking effects are unaffected by this adjustment. Resolved an issue that caused Sinister Gladiator's Maledict to not strike enemy players who have moved out of line of sight after the initial activation of the trinket. Quests
      Players on "The Lord Admiral's Lament " while on the Saurfang questline should now be able to see Isabella. “Quartermaster's Bounty ”, in which you turn in 10 Quartermaster's Coins to get a Battleborn Sigil, is now a weekly repeatable quest.  
      Previous hotfixes.

      Wildcard Gaming finished up the Battle of Dazar'alor, downing Jaina Proudmoore World First on Heroic and crossed the finish line on 9/9 bosses down! It's a Horde first kill, which usually isn't that relevant, but since this raid has a particular faction-themed bent it's slightly more so. The speed of the kill was expected, as pretty much all Heroic endbosses die on the first day. The real race starts next week and we'll have plenty of content to enjoy, between Method and Exorsus streams, our own daily race recaps and the live progress coverage over at Method's raid race site as well.

      And here's the video of the kill:

      Here's a look at the Alliance Intro Cinematic from the Battle of Dazar'alor. It shows their arrival at the Port of Zandalar, and while the fleet appears to be hopelessly outmatched, in the end, the tides of war shift in their favor.
      Lord Admiral Jaina Proudmoore and Gelbin Mekkatorque make landfall at the Port of Zandalar after defeating the Zandalari fleet with Mekkatorque's magic device that makes all boats explode.
      Earlier today, we previewed the Rastakhan Defeat Cinematic. This video was uploaded by MMO-Champion and you can find the source article here.

      Blizzard today clarified in a series of blue posts that clearing the new raid won't be required to unlock Zandalari Trolls and the Allied Race isn't coming with the raid or Mythic Season 2, but later in Patch 8.1.5 as stated at BlizzCon.
      If you've been patiently waiting for the new Allied Races to arrive with Mythic Season 2 and Battle of Dazar'alor, you'll have to wait a little longer. Both Allied Races will arrive in Patch 8.1.5 and Blizzard also specified unlock requirements for both. The good news is that clearing the new raid isn't required to start the quest to recruit them, but you'll still need to complete the entire War Campaign up to the last chapter, reach Exalted with two factions, and complete the story of Kul Tiras & Zandalar.
      Unlock Requirements
      Allied Race Unlock Requirements Kul Tiran Humans Exalted with Proudmoore Admiralty + Tides of Vengeance + Zandalar Forever! Zandalari Trolls Exalted with The Zandalari Empire + Tides of Vengeance + A Nation United Are you disappointed that Kul Tiran Humans and Zandalari Trolls will not be available in Tides of Vengeance or do you not mind at all? Let us know in the comments!
      Blizzard (Source)
      I’m curious if I can unlock it today or if I have to wait for the new raid to go to raid finder, anyone know for sure?
      At BlizzCon we talked about these Allied Races coming in Patch 8.1.5. It might feel like a new patch day with the season update and raid opening up today, but this is still the continuation of the Tides of Vengeance story. We will have more information on the Zandalari and Kul Tiran soon!
      The wait sucks, but I’m at a point of apathy about it now. I wish more clear info would come out about to what extent raiding is related to unlocking the two races. Can the quest be done in LFR if a quest is needed?
      There will be no raiding required. Some people may have seen the requirements on the PTR and we do plan to talk about them more to help spread the word.
      As it currently stands, if you do the Zandalar quest arc (through the Blood Gate quest and Zul’s death), the War Campaign through the Tides of Vengeance achievement, and get Exalted with the Zandalari Empire, you will be able to do the questline to get access to the Zandalari Allied Race as soon as 8.1.5 goes live.
      What are the requirements for Kul’tirans? I’m assuming something equivalant to the Zandalari but specifics matter.
      Tides of Vengeance War Campaign achievement is the same. The story arc should be “A Nation United” achievement. Exalted with Proudmoore Admiralty.

      Our friends at MMO-Champion uploaded the Rastakhan Defeat Cinematic to their YouTube channel, and it's full of juicy spoilers. Learn more about what happens to the king in the Battle of Dazar'alor raid!
      The fate of Rastakhan was sealed the moment he made a desperate deal with Bwonsamdi, the Loa of Death. Rastakhan was truly desperate and in need of power to defend his kingdom from Zul and G'huun, after his beloved Rezan died.
      Rastakhan promised Bwonsamdi to serve him in life and death and in Battle of Dazar'alor raid, he falls victim to the Alliance forces who marched upon Dazar'alor. In the cinematic, we can see the king dying in Talanji's arms as she learns about Rastakhan's deal with Bwonsamdi.
