World Bosses in Legion

Recommended Posts

rTvJ7cT.jpg

The Broken Isles are a continent full of vicious challenges and mighty foes. The most powerful of them are the 11 new world bosses.

Unlike Warlords of Draenor, world bosses in Legion are going to remind you of the good old days of Mists of Pandaria or even vanilla! Here is a summary of what we know about them.

General Info

  • There are 11 world bosses in total, but only 1 of them will be active each week per realm. The selection is random.
  • The active world boss will always be the target of a World Quest. The World Quest will last several days, so you have time to kill it. Read Blainie's guide on World Quests here.
  • The group size to defeat these world bosses depends on your skill and patience. Some groups have managed to kill them with just 5 people and clever kiting. A raid of 20 people will need around 6 minutes to kill a world boss. To be comfortable, take a raid of 30+ players.
  • Each boss drops ilvl 860 gear for a specific slot (Head, Feet etc), a specific type of relic and either a ring, neck, trinket or cloak.
  • The drop chance seems to be low, most of the time you will probably get no loot. On the plus side, the World Quests for world bosses yield good rewards.
  • You are loot eligible once a week for each world boss.
  • 3 of them are in Stormheim, 2 in Highmountain, 2 in Azsuna, 2 in Val'sharah and one in Suramar. Ana-Mouz's location is unknown.

Ana-Mouz

Ana-Mouz didn't grace us with her presence in the Beta, so we don't know much about her. The Adventurer's Journal states that "she uses various area-denial abilities to limit where enemies can safely stand and she summons Lesser Minions". This imp mother drops chests, a Fel relic and an Inscription recipe for a Vantus Rune.

Loot

Calamir

Calamir dwells in Azsuna. It is an elemental that shifts between using Arcane, Fire and Frost abilities. It drops boots for all armor types, a Fire relic and a Jewelcrafting design.

Humongris

Yet another giant, he is located in the Gloaming Reef, in Val'sharah. All of Humongris's attacks deal area damage. Try to remain spread to decrease his overall damage. Humongris drops shoulders.

Warriors will be happy they have to farm 2 world bosses...

It's just an appearance though, so it isn't make or break your gameplay.

Does anyone know if the world bosses are already available directly after launch or are they postponed to the starting week of raiding?

Quite interested in it but couldn't find the information.

I would expect so, given that World Quests will be available from launch and these bosses are tied to WQs,

Awesome info! Love the idea of hardest World Bosses.

However I have one question. Are the 3 World Bosses the same for all servers or we will we available to do Server Hops to kill all of them in one week?

From what we know, World Quests and World bosses are different for each server. Not sure how realmhopping will work... I know they wanted to be stricter with realmhopping so it might not be allowed. Besides, I get the feeling it's not worth doing these world bosses if you don't have the World Quest for them, given that the drop rate of their loot table in the Beta was pretty low.

I am not too sure but it should be, if you are in the same party/raid with other people. If you just see a raid killing Jim and he's at 5% and you manage to tag him, I don't think others will be able to trade you loot.

Honestly not sure tbh - I know that you can't receive the reward from the World Quest, but that's as far as my knowledge goes. Hopefully someone else might be able to help out!

Just tried and you can not. Kind of dumb but it is what it is

Yeah, that's pretty lame. Maybe it'll get changed with 7.1.5 or shortly after!

      Following in the footsteps of good old Doubleagent, who was the first Neutral character without a faction to reached Level 120 with just Herbalism and Mining, here's Pandémia who has reached Level 85 so far. Congratulations!
      Being neutral requires you to remain in the Pandaren starting area without picking a faction and gain Experience by looting herbs and mining nodes, which is extremely slow and time-consuming.

      Update: Blizzard have added a new hotfix, as the issue with C'Thun's eye beam, which we mentioned earlier today, has been resolved as well.

      Today's hotfixes bring up the Brawl changeup in retail, as well as the scepter shards becoming epic quality in Classic.
      August 4 (source)
      Player versus Player
      This week’s Comp Stomp Brawl has been replaced with Temple of Hotmogu. Developers’ note: We’ve identified some issues with Comp Stomp and have removed it from the rotation. Comp Stomp will return to the rotation in Shadowlands. WoW Classic
      The Blue Scepter Shard, Green Scepter Shard, and Red Scepter Shard quest items are now Epic quality. Developers’ note: We're changing the item quality on the Scepter Shard quest items to Epic (purple) so that they'll be easier to distribute to the correct person in raids using Group Loot or Master Looter. Fixed an issue that caused C’Thun within Temple of Ahn’Qiraj to incorrectly delay casting Eye Beam when engaging in combat.

      Castle Nathria raid testing continues on the Shadowlands Alpha on Heroic difficulty and we will finally get to see the final boss of the raid—Sire Denathrius!
      (Source)
      On Thursday, August 6th and Friday, August 7th, we will be continuing our raid tests in Castle Nathria.
      Thursday, August 6th
      Artificer Xy’mox - Heroic Castle Nathria
      13:00 PDT (16:00 EDT, 22:00 CEST)
      Sire Denathrius - Heroic Castle Nathria
      14:00 PDT (17:00 EDT, 23:00 CEST)
      Friday, August 7th
      Hungering Destroyer - Mythic Castle Nathria
      13:00 PDT (16:00 EDT, 22:00 CEST)
      Lady Inerva Darkvein - Mythic Castle Nathria
      14:00 PDT (17:00 EDT, 23:00 CEST)
      As always, this testing schedule is very fluid and subject to the realities of a test environment. We might have to change the time of a testing session, change the bosses being tested, or cancel a test entirely, due to bugs, server hardware issues, etc. Keep an eye on this forum for the latest information, and thank you in advance for testing and providing feedback.
      To facilitate testing, players who have not committed themselves to a Covenant can speak with Acquirer Ta’est inside Castle Nathria to temporarily bind themselves to one of the four factions.
      Q: How do I get into the raid zone?
      A: In Oribos, Dalaran, Orgrimmar, or Stormwind, you may speak to Nexus-Lord Donjon Rade IV in order to teleport into the raid zone while it is open for testing. (The option to teleport into a zone will not be available when the zone is not open for testing.)
      Q: What character should I use to test the raid?
      A: Whichever you prefer. We will be scaling players’ effective level to 60 for raid testing, and their item level to an appropriate threshold for the encounter(s) being tested.
      Q: How long does testing last?
      A: The primary purpose of testing is to give us the information we need to balance the encounters, evaluate how mechanics are playing out in practice, and identify bugs. Once we’re satisfied that we’ve received that information for a given boss, we’ll be shutting down testing. Usually this takes anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours, but there are no guarantees.
      We appreciate you taking the time to test our content and look forward to reading your feedback.

      Following the recent suspensions of some Galywix members that were involved in RMT, the Gallywix community have deleted their website, Discord, and social media accounts.
      Some members of the Gallywix community were found to be participating in real money trading, and so Blizzard permanently suspended their accounts.
      Earlier today, the former raid leader of Method openly admitted that the guild was purchasing gold directly from Gallywix for real money. As a result, the Gallywix community have vanished into thin air and they've taken down their website, which currently does not load. The same goes for their Twitter profile, which no longer exists. They even deleted their Discord.

      On Reddit, people are already speculating they did this to prevent Blizzard from tracking down their accounts. Another Reddit user says boosting is too lucrative for Gallywix to be dead and they will reform in some way, since the community is still in tact.

      Engineers will gain access to a Holographic Auctioneer in Oribos, the new city hub added to Shadowlands.
      Reddit user HydraMods discovered that there is an Auctioneer available in Oribos, so we went to the Hall of Shapes to investigate.

      The auctioneer tells you to leave because you have no Engineering skill.
      Unfortunately, the Auctioneer will be available only when you learn the Engineering skill.
