Harbingers: Illidan Released

Recommended Posts

ti1ww4k.png

The third and last installment of the Harbingers animated shorts series is out!

Since it's pretty certain that we won't see him in the beginning of Legion, it's great to finally catch a glimpse of Illidan after all this time! This animated short is all you need to get hyped about the upcoming Demon Hunter class, the return of Illidan and the new expansion itself.

It's sad that the Harbingers video series only had three episodes, but at least we also got a digital comic series and an audio drama.

You can find the other two shorts here: Gul'dan and Khadgar.

I believe that Illidan will have a major role in the starting zone for the Demon Hunters, so hopefully those of us who choose to try one out will definitely see him.

 

Does anyone have any information on the female character in this Harbingers short?

I have played the starting zone and he doesn't appear at all. He gives you a mission, but he's not there with you. You will - kind of - see him in the Demon Hunter Order Hall Campaign, if I am not mistaken.

She is not named and I don't remember any female NE DH NPC that fits her description. There was one that went crazy (couldn't handle the demonic powers) but I don't think they are the same person.

He's not in the starting zone? That's so strange. I thought it would be like it is for Death Knights with the Lich King.
I've always loved his unique aesthetic and his story. It's a bit disappointing that he won't be a mentor for my Demon Hunter.

Thanks for letting me know about the female DH, too. I'm still quite a lore newb, although I would love to read more, I just never seem to be able to dedicate enough time to it. I want to read all of the novels! I'm seeking inspiration for a name for my DH, and haven't come across anything compelling yet. While not an RPer, I'm a tiny bit obsessed with coming up with names I can get attached to.

After some digging, it turns out we know who that female DH is: it's Kor'vas Bloodthorn. Without spoiling too much, she will be a questgiver to all classes in one zone and she is also in the DH Order Hall!

Naming any character is a very difficult task... Personally, I like Ancient Greek and Roman names. However, I am so bad at giving names to my characters (they are either taken or somehow the names I choose have sexual connotations lol), I usually end up asking other people or stealing the names of older friends who aren't playing anymore. Good luck choosing something! :)

Thank you!!! Now I'm psyched about meeting her. That's a very interesting name, and appears to go against traditional Kaldorei naming conventions. Now I want to learn more...

Most of the time, for NE anyway, the name I choose comes from or is a modified version of something I find on http://www.arwen-undomiel.com/elvish/girlnames.html . The person who created the site uses LotR naming conventions and language knowledge to translate common female human names. For example, my BE hunter on Mal'Ganis is named 'Laiquardiel', which is the translation for 'Daphne', and means 'orange bay tree'. That's not my favorite name choice, but I don't regret naming her that. I use a few different sites that have information on various other Elvish languages to create new names by smooshing together words. Most names tend to end in -iel, -wen, -ell, and sometimes just -a. There are so many good names I've found this way. Sometimes I have to admit to choosing these Elvish names even for human characters, but I also like to translate names from different real-life languages. 'Elyzaveta' (for a human priestess) is one of my favorite results of that, being close to the translation of 'Elizabeth' in either a Slavic or Baltic language (I can't remember which). I am part Lithuanian, part German, and part Irish, among other things, so I like taking names from those languages, sometimes modifying them a bit.

Good luck on finding a name, as well! I've tried many different Greek and Roman options in the past, and the only one I was ever able to claim was 'Psykhe'. They are definitely hard to pin down, as many were taken years ago.

Thanks a ton for your reply!

I knew that site, but I never realised the depth into it. And 'Psykhe' is an amazing name!

You seem to know a lot about name giving :D Don't be surprised if I contact you at some point in the future if I need any help!

I would love to help! I can also provide a list of names that I've chosen in the past and show you what I like about them, what they mean, etc. I'd have to compile a list of 'scrap' sources - the ones I take pieces from and combine to come up with names from various Elvish resources - but that would probably be pretty easy. (I'd prefer to share the list in private, as I'm in the process of nabbing names on a new alt server, Dragonblight, and have to prevent others from taking my ideas.)  :D  Just say the word and I'll get it all ready.

      It seems we're getting a whole lot of Alterac Valley soon, as Classic is getting the 1.12 version in one of the latter content releases and we're getting the special 15th Anniversary edition on live servers in Patch 8.2.5 during the event! Today at midnight CEST there's another Play with the Blues event on the 8.2.5 PTR gathering all Valley enthusiasts and all you have to do is hop on to the PTR and use the Group Finder to jump in!

      You can get the high-rez versions of the two original mounts from the event, which you can check out here as well.
      Play with the Blues (source)
      Tomorrow 12:00 AM CEST, please join us on the 8.2.5 PTR for an old school Alterac Valley Play with the Blues.
      Starting promptly at 3:00 p.m. PDT, Blizzard employees will be testing our 15th Anniversary rendition of AV on the PTR, and you can join us for some strife in the Field of Strife.
      Please log into the PTR by that time and then open your Group Finder (default hotkey: i) and switch to the Player vs. Player tab. You’ll see Alterac Valley waiting for you to join.
      Afterward, please return to this thread with your feedback.
      Thank you!

      The news image above is fan art created by Dogslug. You can find more of his work here.
      Blizzard mentioned multiple times that they would add Allied Races whenever they fit the story. The Horde's hottest candidates are currently the Vulpera of Vol'dun, even though their story doesn't make a whole lot of sense right now. Recent rumors suggest that Gilgoblins could be in the final pair of Horde Allied Races too.
      The Vulpera currently have too many unique animations, and they are a community-favorite. Pretty much every Horde player wants them to become playable. They're coming, and it's just a matter of when. We think the first set of Allied Races will be introduced in Patch 8.2.5 with the second one coming in Patch 8.3.5. Based on datamining, the Vulpera should be live on or before September 20th. You can find all their customization options here.

      On the other side of the spectrum, the Alliance will get Mechagnomes led by Prince Erazmin of Mechagon, but it's still not clear what the second race will be.

      Lightforged Forsaken led by Calia Menethil are a possibility based on the Before the Storm novel and Calia also received a new model in the initial Patch 8.2.5 build.
      Next up are Gilgoblins! We encounter them in zones like Vashj'ir and Nazjatar in Patch 8.2. They are a species of aquatic goblins created by Hobart Grapplehammer. Gilgoblins are very similar to traditional Goblins. They have various tattoos and fins on their arms to help them swim.

      Gilgoblins are currently not included in the game files as playable races as opposed to Mechagnomes and the Vulpera. They only exist as creatures.

      The female model has more customization options compared to the male model. Would you like to see them become playable in the future?

      We know that Blizzard wants to add more customization options to World of Warcraft, and a recent leak suggests that all Allied Races will become customization options in Patch 9.0 except for the Nightborne and the Vulpera. Let's see what the first set of Allied Races is going to be now that Patch 8.2 should hit Public Test Realms reasonably soon!
      TL;DR
      The first set of Allied Races (Mechagnomes/Vulpera) coming in Patch 8.2.5 on or before September 20th. The final set of Allied Races will include Gilgoblins and Lightforged Forsaken (based on the Before the Storm novel) in Patch 8.3.5. We know that Mechagnomes and the Vulpera are coming, but what about the second set of Allied Races?

      Frozen Arathi Basin (Resource Race)
      Put away your bathing suit, pull out your parka, and enter a winter wonderland as the Arathi Basin you know and love gets a fresh coat of ice and snow. You'll be racing your way between the farm, stables, mine, lumberyard, and blacksmith through piles of snow and over a - mostly - frozen lake. One more thing: the weather forecast calls for a bit of fog of war. We hope you're prepared for the weather.

      Today's hotfixes come with a lot of nerfs to Queen Azshara. Vitality Conduit now correctly transfers health from a target with absorb shields, and more.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Dungeons and Raids
      Azshara’s Eternal Palace Queen Azshara When either Aethenel or Cyranus is slain on Normal, Heroic, or Mythic difficulty, there is now a 3-second delay before the other one gains the Torment buff. Azshara's Indomitable is now summoned 10 seconds later than previously observed on Mythic difficulty. Tidemistresses have 5% less health on Mythic difficulty. Fixed an issue where casting either Moonfire or Regrowth twice in a row while affected by Repeat Performance was not triggering the silence. Fixed a bug on Mythic difficulty where the damage effect from Deferred Sentence could trigger the healing reduction from Obey or Suffer right as the decrees transitioned between each other. Siege of Boralus  Corrected an issue where players’ pets were unable to attack the tentacles during the Viq’Goth encounter. Items
      Heart of Azeroth Vitality Conduit (Essence) correctly transfers health from a target with absorb shields on them. Learning new ranks of Conflict and Strife (Essence) should now properly grant achievements such as Power Up.

      Artifact Knowledge will continue to increase each week until the week of October 1, according to Blizzard, despite the fact that in previous Seasons, it ended around the twelve-week mark.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Is this being cut off soon? Or are you leaving it on indefinitely?
      It’s been 8 weeks now, and 8.2 kicked off with 4 weeks of AK already calculated into the game, so in theory, we’ve had 12 weeks of AK at this point. AK ended around the 12-week mark in the prior seasons.
      This is an inquiry, I’m not asking that it be cut off. I think they should leave it on, but that wouldn’t fit the prior seasons.
      No to both questions. 🙂
      As things currently stand, Artifact Knowledge will continue to increase each week until the week of October 1.
