World Bosses in Legion

17 posts in this topic

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

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.

True, but that's all anyone gets this go-round.

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!

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

      Who We Are
      Tequila Sundown is a mythic raid team formed within the <Karma Horde> guild on US-Stormreaver. Lead by a husband/wife team with high-level raiding experience dating back to WotLK, we're a "positively determined" progression team that maintains a light-hearted atmosphere while tackling mythic difficulty content. We're mature adults with jobs and family seeking like-minded players who have a passion for the game but want to avoid the needless angst or drama that often gets associated with progression raiding. We log on to have fun - so come have some fun with us!

      A Team Within a Community
      Our raid team is one of three within the larger guild of <Karma Horde>, which was formed back during WotLK. As such, the guild and Discord are very active and social. There are always people around online and in-game. The community atmosphere is welcoming and friendly to players of all levels. The guild enforces a Code of Conduct that has zero tolerance for hate/offensive speech.
      We are always looking to add players with a friendly personality and lots of passion for the game. We want players who are going to log in on non-raid nights and be down for all the other things we're into: pushing mythic+, doing world quests, PVP shenanigans, achievement hunting, hyper-competitive fishing.. there's so much to do and so many ways to enjoy the game. This is our favorite hobby and we'd like to play with you if it is yours, too.

      Progression Goals
      6/8H, 8/8N Uldir.
      We strive for a fun environment that takes the challenges of mythic seriously and giving the content the respect it deserves. Our aim is, as all mythic teams, full clear of content but with always keeping the friendly spirit of camaraderie alive. Performance matters, but so does staying positive and finding the fun in the difficulty of a raid. We do not require mythic raid experience to join our team but we do expect mythic-level dedication and accountability from all of our raiders. You must be able to take constructive criticism and have ownership over your level of play, and be willing to put in the effort to be a contribution to the team.

      Raid Days/Times
      Our mandatory raids are:
      Tuesdays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Thursdays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Optional:
      Sundays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Sundays are for farming the previous raid difficulty.

      Recruitment Needs
      DPS: Wait-list. Players who are truly interested should fill out an application and join the guild as a community member until a raid spot opens up. 
      Interested? Next steps: 
      Please check out our team's wiki on the <Karma Horde> subreddit.
      Read the Guild Code of Conduct
      Complete and submit a New Raider Application
      Join the guild's Discord server
      Add the Raid Leaders on bnet:  joat#1832 & lambkill#1856  
      Looking forward to hearing from you!

      Rextroy is back with another video after soloing MOTHER on Normal difficulty. This time around, it took him 0.5 seconds to defeat Vectis. It's no longer possible to execute this, because the bug (or clever use of gameplay mechanics?) has been hotfixed.
      A buff that was supposed to reset after entering Uldir allowed him to one-shot Vectis with a single attack.

      Blizzard clarified that Brewfest trinkets should have item level 335 and they're working on a fix to bring them to the correct item level.
      Brewfest started today and trinkets from Coren Direbrew have been adjusted to level 120 and item level 289. It turns out this was not intended and the actual item level of Brewfest trinkets is supposed to be 335. A hotfix will be deployed to live realms soon to address the issue.
      Check out our Brewfest guide for more details!
      Blizzard (Source)
      Hey guys! We're working on a fix at the moment to bring these items to the correct ilvl, which should be ilvl 335 at 120. This fix should also be retroactive, so if you got any of them already no worries ?
    • By Stan
      Brewfest is here and we have no updates this year, only Coren Direbrew's trinkets have been adjusted for level 120.
      The event's Brewmaster achievement is required for What a Long, Strange Trip It's Been, so it must be completed if you're working on your Reins of the Violet Proto-Drake mount. Trinkets have been updated to ilvl 289 this year. Don't forget to queue up for Coren Direbrew every day for a chance to receive loot, mounts, and check out our Brewfest guide for more details!

      Do you love eating delicious faire food, drinking bountiful beverages, and riding rams around barrels of apples? Brewfest has arrived and you can do all that and more during this holiday.
      When: September 20–October 6
      Where: Outside Ironforge and Orgrimmar 
      Coren Direbrew is up to his usual tricks within Blackrock Depths, but characters levels 20-120 can put a stop to his brawling ways by hopping into the Group Finder (I). There just might be a Swift Brewfest Ram or Great Brewfest Kodo in your future!
      What do you get when you have everything? Use your Brewfest Prize Tokens to purchase some of the festive Brewfest items including: the Throwing Sausage, Gravil Goldbraid's Famous Sausage Hat, and Synthebrew Goggles XL. 
      The competing brewers from across Azeroth have made sure to bring along some great brews for you to sample, each with a cosmetic effect:
      T’Chali Voodoo Brewery – Spirit Spirits
      Gordok – Gordok Bock
      Thunderbrew – Storming Saison
      Drohn’s Distillery – Mannoroth’s Blood Red Ale
      Barleybrew – Shimmer Stout

      Alliance players have contributed enough resources and can queue up for the Battle for Stromgarde Warfront for the first time to claim their ilvl 370 reward.
      Alliance
      For the next 7 days, Alliance players will be able to queue up for the Battle for Stromgarde Warfront and fight against the Horde AI. Defeat the Commander to get the War is Hell achievement and a once-per-cycle ilvl 370 reward.
      If you're not able to click the War Table in Boralus, make sure to complete the quick intro quest to unlock Warfronts (Warfront: The Battle for Stromgarde).
      The minimum item level requirement to queue up for the Warfront is 320. You'll receive a piece of ilvl 340 loot that can titanforge every time you complete the Warfront. You can't get rings or trinkets from Warfronts at this time.
      Horde
      The Horde still controls Arathi Highlands and have access to the world boss, quests, and rares. You can find more details here. In 7 days, Alliance will control the zone and the second Horde contribution phase begins.
