[Legion] Prepare your toons for raiding

11 posts in this topic

Here's a link to Medivh's 7.0 Legion Raiders Lexicon. All the credit goes to Medivh (Soulflayer-RU).

While the doc was originally put together for Mythic raiders that maintain a couple of raid alts and run split raids on the start of the expansion, I can see its great value for all the players who prefer the most fast and efficient ways of levelling their toons, professions and artifacts. 

You can find the following sections in the guide:

- Calendar (schedule for 30.08-31.10)

- Preparing (what you should prepare on your main and alts before Legion)

- Professions (short info about every profession and its viability for raiding, best ways to farm Blood of Sargeras and Obliterum)

- Leveling (the goals to achieve, the best way for moving through the leveling zones / the fastest XP gain, leveling your Class Hall)

- Artifact (artifact levels you should aim to before the raiding starts, traits cost, Artifact Knowledge bonuses, AP farm sources, Hidden Appearances guide)

- Suramar (reputation farm, best ways to gain decent rewards, daily quests to do/to avoid)

- Everyday TO DO List (check that you are not  forgetting anything from this list)

- Pre-raid Gear (where to obtain - BiS for every slot)

- Legendaries (how to obtain and a link to the in-depth guide)

- Raid/Mythic dungeons (right now contains mostly ilvls of gear drops and weekly runs optimization, has a placeholders for in-depth guides) 

- PvP (nothing in-depth here)

If you are interested in lore and world discovering or are not going to raid or jump to Mythics+ right away, better play in your preferred pace without relying on this guide.

 

I made a summary of the doc for my guild but can as well post it here for those people who prefer it short:

‘the important things - try not miss them’ part for those who’s not interested in reading walls of text:
Gearing:
Check your professions choice before Legion. 850 ilvl crafted gear is everyone’s BiS before entering the first raid.
Armor: To get upgraded all 10 pieces of crafted gear to 850 you will need 140 Bloods of Sargeras and 70 Obliterum (14 Bloods and 7 Obliterum per item). Neck and ring crafted pieces is a pure ‘must’ because of the sockets.
The easiest way to obtain Blood is the drop from gathering profs during leveling and dailies.
The fastest way to obtain Blood is the drop from farming Mythic and Heroic dungeons especially with theShoulder enchant.

Ways to farm Blood of Sargeras
Shoulder Enchant: 6 blood/hour, requires Revered with the Wardens, can be enchanted by a person with Revered through trade chat.
Mythic dungeons farm: 8-10 blood/hour. 1 week reset
Heroic dungeons farm: 6-12 blood/hour. No reset through LFG. With a good premade group takes about 15 min. to complete one
Gathering profs: 2-3 blood/hour. Can be gathered while doing dailies
Dailies, Suramar scenario, Class Hall orders: 2-5 blood/day, depends on daily quests proc

How to get Obliterum:
If you have enough gold, you can simply buy Obliterum from the AH. If you don't, disenchant crafted items on the Obliterum forge. 1 Obliterum = 100 ash, ash itself is BoP. You don't need the Enchanting prof to DE things for Obliterum.
To check the amounts of ash drop from every type of crafted items, use the Professions section of the maindoc.

Trinkets:
- check whether the Alchemist and/or Inscription trinket are BiS for your spec. Get them ready before raiding starts.
- use dps/tank heirloom trinkets for leveling - they are good until lvl 110.

Relics: don’t bother with ilvl 805 crafted ones - they are plain bad for raiders. The relics you should use are those from HC and Mythic dungeons drop.

Leveling and Artifacts:
Level in a dps/tank spec, no matter what your main raiding spec would be. With all the tweaks to the Artifact traits cost, the most efficient way to handle your Artifacts would be to get the one for the spec you will be leveling first and upgrade its first 13 traits - their cost all together is the same of the 14th trait alone. After this, keep all the AP you are getting during leveling for your main Artifact. (Once you apply power to a weapon, you can’t remove it and use in another. Keep that in mind!).
Never reroll your Artifact traits - while it is possible, the cost of it would be the cost of your next trait - it’s a huge loss of AP. Write down your path and follow it. Don’t panic if you chose something ‘wrong’ - you will fill all the traits eventually, so rerolling traits would just slow down your Artifact leveling.

Do all the other specs Artifact chains on the level 102 - it rewards a LOT of XP.
Do all the dungeons attunements (normally in the end of every leveling zone) - this rewards a LOT of XP and you need them all opened on 110 lvl. Open Suramar dungeons as fast as possible.

Legendaries:
Don’t worry about getting a Legendary before the raiding starts: as Beta people are reporting, most of them got at least one during first two weeks after hitting 110.
Please, pay attention: Legendaries wouldn’t drop from a regular mobs! 
Legendaries would drop from: daily/Class Hall/Mythic/PvP chests, Normal/HC/Mythic dungeons, World/LFR/Raid bosses. Kind of loot (personal or group) wouldn’t matter - Legendaries would drop for everyone personally. So never miss a 1 week CDs that may give you a Legendary.

Leveling zones order: Stormheim->Azsuna->Val’Sharah->Highmountain->Suramar.
If you want to know why this is the order, read the leveling section in the main doc.
Do not bother with non main chain quests - it’s a waste of time.

Class Hall:
Do not miss your Class Hall quests - complete them right away. Some of them take a time between 4 hours and 4 days, so leaving them unfinished for a long time would put your behind.
Start your Artifact Knowledge research immediately and try not to miss a day. Every level of Research gained gives you a huge advantage in leveling of the Artifact, prio this above Class Hall talents if need be. It’s important!
Still don’t forget about Class Hall talents research - you will need this for the last trait of being able to equip 2 Legendaries.
Don’t fix too much on the Class Hall Champions leveling - they don’t give any benefits to raiders.

Suramar:
Bind your HS to a Suramar's central cave to save the time - you will have to come here every day as it’s one of the main zones for AP farm.
Do all the quests here without any exceptions - you need the reputation for unlocking daily quests, two Suramar dungeons and higher % of AP gaining.
If you want to know how exactly to do dailies and scenario for the highest rep and AP gain, read the Suramar section in the full doc.

Updated the main post with a summary of the doc for those who prefer it short.

And here's a great pic showing an Artifact Power Schedule in case you choose to upgrade only your main spec Artifact or both main and offspec. The picture already presents in the DH forum section but I find it useful for all classes.

I chosed Jeweler and Mining for my DH.

There is no need to have mining, if I can get BoS from other Ways. Should I change to Leather and have two crafting Jobs?

Nice help for Legion!

I'll share it!

1. The main quest chains are those you can see a quest exclamation mark on your map ('M' option, not minimap).

2. You are right if you have enough gold to buy JC and LW mats (ore and leather) or crafted 815 BoEs from AH. Otherwise there are 2 possibilities: to level a gathering alt with Mining and Skinning or to mine enough ore for crafting on your DH, then drop mining and pick LW.

1. Is there a way to  finde the main chain quest AFTER I've accept them?

Sometimes you accept all quest and become send in all directions of the map. I think it's the best way to do main chain quests first and all other beside.

 

2. Which way I'll chose: It will cost a lot of Gold.

I've to think about it... =|

No, not really after you already took the quests. The only way would be to abandon everything and then to check the exclamation marks on your map.

Or typing the names of quests you took on wowhead - in this case you'll see whether it's a chain ^^

A bit of clarification about professions and a 'swapping prof' ability - it's not exactly about raiding but I believe it may help raiders in planning profs for Legion.

In Legion we have two 'ways' of progress in profs: profession level between 1 and 800 and 3 Star ranks for recipes/gathering nodes.

There is a new item in Legion named 'Forgotten ... of Broken Isles' that costs 1000g and allows to swap between previously learned professions.
What it actually does?

- the Forgotten tome allows to keep Star ranks for previously learned Legion recipes/nodes when switching to another profession;
-
the Forgotten tome resets your 1-800 level in a profession to 0 every time you use it;
- recipes learned in previous expansions are removed when the tome is used.


There is no difference in efficiency between 1 and 800 level in crafting (you can craft all Legion recipes from lvl 1) but there are some items you can use only on level 800 (LW mount for example).
Don't forget that you wouldn't be eligible for the professional world dailies before reaching 100 points in a certain profession.

      - Actively doing dungeons/world quests to improve your gear and artifact weapon.

      Hello guys,
      I have been having trouble with my toon... For some reason my DPS outside of Metamorphosis is really, REALLY low. Like 400k whereas I'm overall 900iLevel.
      You can look up my Armory here:
      http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/emeriss/Xymeria/simple
      If the link does not work, please check me out Xymeria-Emeriss - Europe.
      I have all of the pieces the Top Demon hunters in Wowprogress do, except a little bit lower iLevel and maybe some improvements can be done to my Gloves and Boots, I hadn't had much luck with legendaries ( I have the defensive DH chest, Burning Fist Trinket and the last one I got is the Cascading Eyes ( Head ) - I don't have the Ring which EVERYONE BUT ME HAS....
      I'm having huge issues with generating enough fury to dish out enough DPS. I have enough Crit and Mastery, my haste is a little low, but not that much. 
      When I'm in Meta, Nemesis and Artifact are on.. I dish out around 1300. But without meta it's all downhill from there.
      Please give me some advise on how to improve my DPS.
