[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.

      <OVERLOAD> - Darksorrow - 7/7(M) 3/3(H) 5/10(H)
      RAID SCHEDULE
      Tuesdays & Thursdays: 20:00 – 23:00
      Currently Recruiting: 
      Ranged DPS - Mage/Warlock/Priest/Shaman
      Healer - Shaman/Priest
      ABOUT US
      The guild is formed by experienced raiders with a varied, hardcore-raiding background. We strive to obtain steady realm progression. And we aim to create an active and friendly atmosphere whilst doing so. Since Legion the guild has undergone a revamp through new leadership; the change was needed as we found it hard to balance being casual whilst trying to stick to a strict raiding timetable.
      Upon joining Overload, players who are interested on staying as a social member will be given membership rank. Players looking to apply for a raiding spot will undergo a 2 week trial period where their performance, attitude, readiness and playstyle will be evaluated using Warcraft Logs and WoW Armory.
      Every player matters!
      It’s about us as a community! We want everyone to be and feel a big part of the guild, no matter what level or guild rank. Our current officer team includes, Calamity (Guild Master & Raid Leader) Aggravating (Theory-Crafting/Raider Evaluation & Strategy) and Wingria (Guild Management/Website/Loot Master & Logs). Officer meetings take place every Monday evening. Any idea’s suggestions, concerns or issues can be brought up and discussed with an officer to be added to the agenda for these meetings.
      A life outside WoW
      We fully understand that players can’t play WoW 24/7
      (as much as some of us try!)
      The gaming experience should be a arranged around your every day habits and commitments. World of Warcraft should help provide relief to players from every day stress and worries; not adding to them. This is why our raid times are tailored to Tuesdays and Thursdays only. What we expect from our Raiders is to attend the raids 15 minutes prior to the time stated, informed, organised, and gear optimised for the encounter. If a player cannot make the raid they are expected to give plenty of notice on the AFK thread on the forum or by contacting an officer directly.
      Interaction amongst members!
      Overload is more than a place for raiding. We are a community of friendly players who enjoy long hours of awesome gaming. Being friendly and polite towards ALL players is very important to us and an essential part of being an Overloader. We want everyone to be comfortable and enjoy their game time; regardless if you are a raider or social member.
      Do you think you have what it takes to be part of Overload?
      Apply now HERE and head over to our Forums. 
      We look forward to welcoming you in Legion!

      Requisite armory link: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/aggramar/Mayo/simple Requisite most recent parse: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/rankings/character/93755/latest Am I following the Icy Veins rotation? Yup, for the most part, unless I have a brain fart. With that out of the way, I want to start by saying that I’m not unsatisfied by my DPS, but I know that I can do more / do better. 
      I’ve got two of the best legendaries (Ashes to Dust & Chain of Thrayn), two of what I think are the best trinkets. I’ve got the Claw of the Crystalline Scorpid (880) and the Entwined Elemental Foci (890) but don’t use them currently because my sims are showing Convergence of Fates (895) & Might of Krosus (895) being ~7-10k higher, but I’m very open to hearing if maybe the sims aren’t as accurate as I’d like to think they are.
      I’m just... stuck on how to get there. I was hoping that I could get some sage advice from other paladins in here.
      All of your thoughts are most appreciated.
      Thanks,
      Mayo

      Welcome to <Raiders on the Storm> 7/7 M, 3/3 H, 10/10 H! We are a crazy humorous hell-of-a-ride multicultural and semi-hardcore guild always looking for mad players like you to join our jaunty little but ever-growing family of friends.
      Our motto, as Jack Kerouac said is:
      “[…] the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes “Awww!”
      We are currently looking for nutheads to build our roster to start progressing on Nighthold Mythic. You should have a minimum ilvl of 890 equipped and at least 45 traits. We have a strong preference for tanks and healers but all classes are considered. Socials are of course accepted.
      Raid Schedule
      We raid Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays from 19:00 CET to 22:00 CET.
      NH Raid Loot System
      The loot system will be based on credits, sort of like a bank account. You will start off the week with 100 credits (this is your weekly salary) and the items that drop from the bosses will be auctioned during the raid. Items dropped from Nighthold Normal, Heroic and Mythic difficulties will have a minimum bid price of 10, 20 and 30 credits respectively. Your accounts will be kept in an Excel sheet to be managed by the GM. For every raid you attend you will earn 25 extra credits to be handed out in the following Wednesday, up to a maximum cap of 200 credits.
      Guild Rules
      You can download our guild rules through this link - https://www.dropbox.com/s/zkc1r2u86vcksk5/Guild Rules.odt?dl=0
      For those wishing to raid Nighthold HC and MY with the guild, you must be willing to submit yourself to a 5-10 minutes interview with either the Guild Master, the Guild Bank Manager or one of the officers. This is so that you get to know us and we get to know you.
      If you are interested, please contact the GM and RL on Danadu-Kazzak, sebastiao.martins87@gmail or add me on sebrmartins#2647, or alternatively whisper Ivornator-Kazzak or Yolorage-Kazzak.
      Looking forward to hearing from you!
