Harbingers: Illidan Released

8 posts in this topic

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.

      Summary of the latest Q/A with Game Director Ion Hazzikostas about Patch 7.3.5 and beyond.
      Watch Now
      No questions about WoW Classic will be answered in this Q/A. In BfA, the Azerite system adds depth and customization that was used for Tier sets. For Battle for Azeroth, a lot of art variety will be added to the armor. There will be 1 appearance per armor type though, but more variety across zones. For transmog collectors it means more customization. There will be unique trinkets from raids. Azerite armor from raids will provide properties that can be found only in raids. Assembling people and maintaining schedule needs to feel worthwhile and properly rewarding. Patch 7.3.5 TL;DR: We'll see zone scaling, Legion epilogue quest content, Ulduar Timewalking and a preview of the new Silithus battleground (Seething Shore). In BfA, the focus shifts from racial identity to the faction conflict. Unlocking Allied races is more story-driven. Reputation barriers will be lifted. Doing the campaign should suffice. Heritage armor is restricted to races. More Allied races will be added in the future, but they want to add those that make sense story-wise first. Hunched races - Orc is the big one here. From the early beginning, we saw Thrall / Saurfang that had proper posture and it was a repeated request and they totally understand it. Darskpear Trolls will remain hunched - it's a part of the troll silhouette. Zandalari Trolls are upright though. Prestige system in BfA? They're looking at how the feeling of progression has been in Legion and are re-evaluating a lot of stuff. They want to make sure Prestige rewards are still available. Artifact skins in BfA  will be spec-restricted. Far fewer Legendary items will be seen in BfA, Blizzard will make them where it makes sense. As of now, they have no specific Legendaries in mind. No plans to change the Mythic raid size at the moment. The raid structure remained the same in Warlords, Legion and the trend will continue in BfA. They want to explore an option to enable Mythic cross-server raiding sooner. The team feels that Tomb of Sargeras was too difficult on Mythic difficulty. A few months after Antorus opens, there will be nerfs to Aggramar and Argus the Unmaker on Mythic. Is Aman'Thul's Vision personal loot? There's value in preserving discovery. We'll see in two weeks. When Mythic Antorus opens (Dec 5), you'll be able to get Mythic rewards up to +15. Order Hall Cache rewards will be retroactive.  Will Titanforging still allow you to get Mythic quality gear in Normal raids? Yes. It's about the moment of surprise. While you can still get a lucky drop, the Mythic raider is in all cases better geared than that lucky player. Odds of Titanforging will be looked into. They think it's happening too often. The idea of upward loot scaling is being carried forward. The hard cap on Titanforging would limit progression. World PvP will be revitalized in BfA. Creating a space where players who are looking for PvP can more reliably run across each other is the priority right here. Some players don't want to server transfer, yet they are stuck on servers with faction imbalance. The current thinking is to preserve the identity of RP-PvP communities. Legion is the expansion that brought the biggest class changes to World of Warcraft. It's jarring to come back only to see your class vastly reworked. Demonology will see a significant rework and Survival Hunter (the execution of the fantasy will be looked into). In terms of class changes, a good analogy would be Wrath of the Lich King to Cataclysm transition, minus removing 20 points of talents and adding 3 abilities to every class. Class buffs provide utility and they are returning in BfA. Some Artifact traits will be made baseline or baked into talents. For example Stormkeeper is a new Elemental Shaman talent available in BfA. Removing drawbacks from abilities is an area they are the most hesitant to entrench. What's happening with Hati for BM? It won't be carried forward. It's tied to Titanstrike.  It's cool to have multiple pets up as BM. and it's definitely something they could expand upon in the future. Improving animations is a long-term effort. New Warlock animations should be ready for the BfA pre-patch. Relics diluted the excitement of weapon rewards. The plan is to go back to regular weapon drops. The Underlight Angler will be carried forward, unlike other Artifacts. 50 characters per account limit will probably not be increased, but they're listening to community feedback.

      Highmountain Taurens are one of the three Allied races available to the Horde in Battle for Azeroth. In this preview, we're looking at the requirements to create a Highmountain Tauren, class / customization options and racials.
      Descended from Huln, brave hero of the War of the Ancients, the Highmountain tauren honor the spirits of earth, river, and sky. Though the Legion invaded their lands and sowed seeds of distrust between them, the tribes of Highmountain stand united once more. At long last they are ready to venture beyond their sacred mountain and stand beside their kin from Kalimdor, lending their nobility and strength to the mighty Horde.
      Available Classes
      Druid, Hunter, Monk, Shaman, Warrior Requirements
      In Danny's interview with Muffinus, we learned that you need to complete Ain't No Mountain High Enough and have some reputation standing with the Highmountain Tribe in order to gain access to a short quest chain to unlock the Allied race. Racials (Source)

      The Titan Pantheon themed trinkets coming with Antotus are definitely the most interesting piece of itemization that's come around in a while and they were pretty mysterious for a time when they were first datamined, but we've since found out exactly how they work and what's required for those secondary pocs to trigger. However, the exact numbers behind those procs, how many players would actually have to have them equipped to be optimal, what amount of DPS do the add, whether the legendary version was better than the regular ones and many more questions like that remained unanswered - until now.
      Ask Mr. Robot has put together this very useful infographic detailing pretty much any questions you might have about the upcoming trinkets, other than perhaps "when will one of these drop for me?"
      So, check out all the info you could possibly need and, in case you need a refresher, here are the actual trinkets themselves as well:
      Aggramar's Conviction; Aman'Thul's Vision; Eonar's Compassion; Golganneth's Vitality; Khaz'goroth's Courage; Norgannon's Prowess

      You should also check out the full blog post for additional info and details.

      In Battle for Azeroth, we're getting 6 new allied races that start at level 20. Alliance has access to Dark Iron Dwarves, Void Elves and the Lightforged Draenei, while the Horde can play as Nightborne, Highmountain Taurens and Zandalari Trolls!
      Here's a rundown of new sub-races available to both factions. In the screenshots, the characters are wearing what Blizzard calls Heritage Armor. It's a reward to show off your accomplishments and it is earned from leveling your Alied Hero character from 20 to 110. If you're buying a race change, you won't get it. In the What's Next Panel, we learned that it ignores armor types, so it seems all classes will be able to transmog the set once it's unlocked. Six allied races will be initially available and more will be added later on in the expansion. You can find out more information on the official website.
      Alliance
      Void Elves (Hunter, Mage, Monk, Priest, Rogue, Warlock, Warrior) Lightforged Draenei (Hunter, Mage, Paladin, Priest, Warrior) Dark Iron Dwarves
      Horde
      Nightborne (Hunter, Mage, Monk, Priest, Rogue, Warlock, Warrior) Highmountain Taurens (Druid, Hunter, Monk, Shaman, Warrior) Zandalari Trolls
      Highmountain Tauren Racials (Passive)
      Bull Rush (Instant, 2 min cooldown)
      Charges forward for 1 sec, knocking enemies down for 1.5 sec. Mountaineer (Passive)
      Increases your Versatility by 1%. Pride of Ironhorn (Passive)
      Mining skill increased by 15 and allows you to mine faster. Rugged Tenacity
      Reduces damage taken by X. Waste Not, Want Not (Passive)
      You have a chance to loot additional meat and fish. (Source)
      Lightforged Draenei Racials
      Demonbane (Passive)
      Experience gains from killing Demons increased by 20%. Final Verdict (Passive)
      When you die the Light avenges you dealing X Holy Damage to enemies within 8 yards and healing allies for X. Forge of Light (Passive)
      Summon a Forge of Light, enabling Blacksmithing. Blacksmithing skill increased by 10.
      Light's Judgment (Instant, 2.5 min cooldown, 40 yd range)
      Call down a strike of Holy energy, dealing X Holy damage to enemies within 5 yards after 3 sec. The racial looks very similar to the Vindicaar Core Matrix Power on Argus > Light's Judgment. (Source @Kalrell's tweet // Sloot's stream)
