Broken Shore, Demon Hunters and Invasions Now Live In North America

Recommended Posts

2ltlqa1.jpg

The pre-expansion hype has just started in the Americas with Demon Hunters, the Broken Shore questline and the demon invasions being available!

Anyone who has pre-purchased Legion can now access the new Hero class of World of Warcraft, the Demon Hunter! Blizzard has already posted an official preview of this new class, while from our side we have a couple of guides ready for its two specialisations: Havoc (DPS) and Vengeance (Tank).

Similar restrictions that used to apply for Death Knight now apply to Demon Hunters: you can only make one per realm and you need to have a level 70 character in the realm, in which you wish to create your Demon Hunter. In addition, Demon Hunters can only be Night Elves for Alliance and Blood Elves for Horde. Demon Hunters begin at level 98; you will go through two starting zones, Mardum and the Vault of the Wardens, before you can join your fellow adventurers in the rest of Azeroth. MMO-Champion has posted two video cinematics from the beginning and the middle of this starting experience.

As far as the demon invasions are concerned, make sure to read the official preview, as well as the details on their schedule which were revealed in a PCGamesN interview. The rewards you can earn from these invasions are weapon and armor transmogs, a battle pet, a toy drop and - of course - achievements! The Dark Whispers event will also take place in Stormwind and in Orgrimmar: it has no known rewards, but it's just a fun way to wreak havoc in your capital city.

Furthermore, the Broken Shore questline will be available to all players (apart from Demon Hunters) that are over level 98. This scenario paves the way for Legion and obviously, there are some major lore developments happening during it! MMO-Champion has posted the much anticipated cinematic of the conclusion of the Alliance and the Horde campaign at the Broken Shore.

Lastly, Blizzard has posted a blog post on the level 100 boost that will be available to everyone who has or will purchase Legion. Additional boosts can be bought from the Shop, while you can try out a class before boosting it with the new Class Trials system.

Levelling a demon hunter was great fun!

Too bad you can only have 1 per realm, because I would love to create one to choose the other faction at the end of the questline...

Did something acually change between the two factions at the end of the questline?

Great, thanks for the answer ;)

Now I don't have to level a lvl 70 char on another realm to get a second demon hunter! A little dissapointing to not have any major changes between story lines though, maybe they will implement this in future patches though...

I have to say that this pre expansion event has been one of my favorite.  The cinimatics are great, the story is amazing and it feels epic.  If this is any indication of what the rest of the expansion will be like then all the more I am eagerly awaiting the 30th!

I agree this pre-expansion does have a better feel than WoD, MoP, and Cata.  Hopefully Bliz continues it with the rest of the expansion.  It'll be interesting to see how the storyline develops with the changes of Horde and Alliance leadership...

      Reddit user Mothka continues with the theme of animals in World of Warcraft, and this time, we have notable Battle for Azeroth quest givers transformed into various beasts. Can you guess who's who?

      Now's the time to check your answers!
      How many NPCs did you guess correctly?

      Rextroy is back after a bit of a soloing absence, and he's gotten some gear ready in 8.3 - so naturally it was time to head into the current raid and solo a boss! Prophet Skitra is the second or third boss of the raid, depending on whether you pick her or Maut after Wrathion, and in this World First video we get a little extra explanation on how he did it by Rextroy (head to 5:36 in the video for that part).

      You can also check out our in-depth interview with the man himself, as he goes over some of his more controversial tactics and discusses the difference between an exploit and creative use of game mechanics, as he had a bit of experience with the subject after being banned and unbanned for a solo kill he did (the 0.5 second Vectis kill).

      There are some pretty cool discoveries he had to make about the boss mechanics to pull it off so it's definitely worth a watch:
       

      Other Rextroy solos:
      King Mechagon Normal Kin'garoth Normal 7 hour kill in Antorus MOTHER Normal in Uldir Taloc Normal in Uldir Vectis Normal in Uldir Argus Normal in Antorus Portal Keeper Hasabel Normal in Antorus Garothi Worldbreaker and Eonar Normal in Antorus

      We've entered Visions of N'Zoth Week 10 which means that the weekly Conquest cap now rewards item level 460 gear (up from 445), so make sure to collect 500 Conquest to get the weapon this week.
      PvP rewards for collecting 500 Conquest in Season 4 were of item level 445 (Weeks 2-9) so far Starting this week, the item level of Conquest rewards has been increased by 15. Don't forget that there's a catchup system in place, allowing you to continuously earn rewards if you start playing later in the Season. Don't forget that you must earn rewards from Weeks 1-9 to start receiving ilvl 460 rewards. Season 4 Conquest Schedule

      Starting with next week's reset (March 31st/April 1st), all Legion instances will be getting legacy loot rules, aka more loot drops for when there's fewer players. This means you'll be getting random loot not specific to your class, but there will be plenty more of it for those transmog runs.

      Check out the full explanation below:
      Legion Legacy Loot (source)
      With scheduled weekly maintenance the week of March 31, we’re enabling Legacy loot rules in Legion raids and dungeons.
      We’re reached that point in an expansion where the content from the previous expansion no longer requires a full group, and the rewards are primarily sought by transmog collectors. With this change, Legion raid and dungeon encounters will drop a fixed quantity of class-agnostic loot. Today, if you and one other player enter Emerald Nightmare on Mythic difficulty and kill Nythendra, it’s unlikely that you’ll receive any loot, since drop rates normally scale to the number of players. After this change, Nythendra will always drop 5 items from her loot table, regardless of your group size.
      Dungeons and many of the lower-difficulty raid bosses in Legion are already soloable by well-equipped Battle for Azeroth characters, though some bosses, especially on Mythic difficulty, may still require you to bring a few friends. Nonetheless, this should amount to a great increase in the availability of Legion transmog gear.
      See you there!

      We have some more small hotfixes today, as battle pets and mounts get some attention.

      Battle Pets
      Black Chitinous Plate should now drop more frequently from Skikx’traz in Uldum while the Aqir Assault is active. Mounts
      Malevolent Drone should now drop more frequently from Corpse Eater in Uldum while the Aqir Assault is active.
