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.

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!

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

      Check out the schedule of upcoming micro-holidays!
      Blizzard today posted a schedule of upcoming micro-holidays in World of Warcraft. New micro-holidays will be added in Patch 8.1.5. The slide presentation at the What's Next panel mentioned The Wanderer's Festival, Vashj'ir Diving, and permanenent micro-holiday rewards (shirts)!

      Blizzard (Source)
      A new addition to Legion is what we’re calling micro-holidays. Each one is meant to make the world feel more alive without making players feel like they need to participate for big rewards—while still providing some more variety and fun.
      Call of the Scarab (January 21-23)
      To commemorate the first ringing of the Scarab Gong on January 23, 2006, players will be able to relive a portion of the Ahn’Qiraj gate opening by collecting items for turn-in. The winning faction will then be able to claim bragging rights and have their faction flag hang over the gates until the next Call of the Scarab micro-holiday event.
      Kirin Tor Tavern Crawl (January 31)
      The mages of Azeroth like to relax, too. Hop into a portal at your local watering hole and join the Tavern Crawl!
      Hatching of the Hippogryphs (February 23)
      Those who head to Feralas will be able to bear witness to the yearly hatching of the hippogryphs. You may even make a little friend for the day.
      Un'goro Madness (March 17-19)
      Dinosaurs are running amok in Un’Goro. Help quell the rampage and you’ll be awarded some temporary evolution buffs.
      March of the Tadpoles (April 5)
      Each year, the Winterfin murlocs allow their tadpoles free reign over their village. You can make a difference by adopting your favorite, feeding it, and protecting it from nearby predators.
      Volunteer Guard Day (April 28)
      Step into the shoes of a guard in the major cities with a /salute and you’ll get to serve and protect the city just like them. Stay vigilant and watch out for any invaders.
      Spring Balloon Festival (May 10-12)
      Several of Azeroth’s characters – some of whom you might recognize – are giving tours of Azeroth in their hot air balloons. You’ll enjoy their commentary and interact with other citizens as you take in the scenery.
      Glowcap Festival (May 27)
      Head to Sporeggar in Zangarmarsh, collect some rare mushrooms, and help the sporelings heal the great mushroom, Fshoo. You’ll gain a bit of Sporeggar reputation for helping them out.
      Thousand Boat Bash (June 6-8)
      Thousand Needles is where the biggest bash on boats can be found in Azeroth. It’s a chance to unwind a little, away from the lurking danger of the Burning Legion. Auction House Dance Party (July 22)
      The main auction houses in Orgrimmar and Stormwind have been cleaned out and turned into dance parties for the day! Crowd on in and show some faction pride!
      Kirin Tor Tavern Crawl (July 31)
      The mages of Azeroth like to relax, too. Hop into a portal at your local watering hole and join the Tavern Crawl!

      Blizzard drastically reduced experience requirements in the 20-110 range in the latest 8.1 PTR Build 28366 and a new potion is available for purchase that increases stats by 20 and XP gains by 10% for an hour for characters below level 120.
      Experience Requirements Per Level Nerfed in Patch 8.1
      According to our friends at MMO-Champion, Blizzard reduced experience required to level on PTR by approximately 22%, so earning Heritage Armor and leveling up alts will be faster in Tides of Vengeance. For example, you'll need 40% less experience per level in the 59-65 range, and the amount of experience from 80-110 has been reduced by a whopping 25%.
      Click the image to view the full table and the source article.

      New Heirlooms
      In 8.1 Build 28294, new Heirlooms were added to the Warfront vendors.
      Battle Hymnal // Battle Hymnal Bolstering War Horn // Bolstering War Horn Dusk Powder // Dusk Powder Enchanted Scroll // Enchanted Scroll Cloak of Hardened Steel // Cloak of Hardened Steel
      Taste of Victory
      Taste of Victory is a new item that increases all Experience gains for characters below level 120 by 10% for an hour. You can get it from completing Incursions with a character below max level, according to Wowhead.
      New XP Potion
      Draught of Ten Lands is a potion that increases experience gains by 10% and all stats by +20 for 1 hour. You can purchase it from the new Warfront vendors for 10 7th Legion Service Medals (Alliance) or 10 Honorbound Service Medals in Patch 8.1.

      If you're still holding off leveling your alts, just wait for December 11 when the patch goes live!

      WoW's Creative Director talked to Eurogamer at BlizzCon 2018 about BfA's most controversial character: Warchief Sylvanas Windrunner.
      Alex Afrasiabi started off by saying that it's more interesting having a divided fanbase on Sylvanas, it shows that the story team is doing their job well.
      Then, while explaining how Sylvanas was always a villain, he mentions that the Wrathgate happened under her orders. This is extremely weird and it's definitely not how it is depicted in game; hopefully we won't have a retcon or a change of the story on this.
      Regarding the Tides of Vengeance questline where you will choose to side with Sylvanas or with Saurfang, Afrasiabi revealed that there will be subsequent quests where you will have to follow through the choice you make.
      And what about Sylvanas' ultimate fate? Well, she is not just a fan favourite, but she's a beloved character by the developers as well. For example, Afrasiabi has been working on her story since 2006. For the moment, she seems to be too well liked to be killed off and in Afrasiabi's words "it would be dismissive to think she'll just go down as another raid boss, because she's a little bit more than that". That doesn't mean we won't fight her one day and her story is far from over.
      You can read the entire Eurogamer interview here. In light of this new info, what do you think about the direction Sylvanas' story will take in Battle for Azeroth?

      The Starting Zone interviewed Senior Art Director Chris Robinson and Assistant Technical Director Frank Kowalkowski in the first part of the podcast. The second part includes an exclusive audio from the press conference with Senior Game Designer Jeremy Feasel and Lead Environment Artist Tina Wang.
      Highlights (Chris Robinson & Franz Kowalkowski Interview)
      With Battle of Dazar'alor, they took existing assets of the city, decreased view distance, closed all shop doors and removed vendors. The raid opened up the entire area, it's not just about the pyramid. Key aspects of the raid happen outside the city proper. Darkmoon Faire will have a new roller coaster in Patch 8.1.5. From a technical perspective, level designers have the capability to replaces areas of the world with different terrain and structures. Darkshore has been altered to support Tyrande's new 8.1 questline and the new Warfront. Rise of Azshara (Patch 8.2) architecture drew inspirations from the existing Naga culture. Nagas are fish people, so obviously, there won't be any elevators! They have new waterfall technology that will debut in Nazjatar. They want to experiment more with AI bots introduced in Island Expeditions. Sneaky Pete is still there, let's see if he queues up for a battleground. Goblin & Worgen model rework goals: retain core fantasy and bring them up to the fidelity we're used to. They still have some work to do with the Female Worgen model. The model does no longer have the chihuahua scalp. Highlights (Jeremy Feasel & Tina Wang Press Conference)
      Players will be able to unlock customization options by completing the Tyrande questline in Patch 8.1 and that's something they've never done before. Tides of Vengeance includes multi-threading support. DX12 will be able to utilize more cores! Arathi Basin and Warsong Gulch will be visually revamped in Patch 8.1.5. There was one Art Direction meeting where they went to Warsong Gulch and everybody remembers the bush you can hide in, because it was very blocky, triangular and completely covered your character. They had to make the bush bigger to support hiding. Updated Darkshore features some really cool Forsaken architecture. You can listen to the BlizzCon episode of their podcast below or by visiting the Starting Zone website.

      Forbes' Heather Newman interviewed Game Director Ion Hazzikostas who spoke about War Mode and faction balance in PvP.
      Check out the full interview at Forbes.com
      Highlights
      World of Warcraft maintains an even faction balance. Overall win rates in battlegrounds are "shockingly even". The Alliance wins more Isle of Conquest & Alterac Valley games, everything else skews mildly to the Horde, with a win rate of 46-54%. Blizzard is looking to incentivize War Mode more in Patch 8.1, by adding increased rewards for the less-represented faction in War Mode (Alliance). Ion suspects many Alliance players had a rough start with War Mode and opted out. Players who join large raid groups to kill the weekly world boss all abruptly appear on the same shard, causing an imbalance that the game's systems try to balance by bringing in an equivalent number of players of the opposing faction. If a raid group disbands, players pop back into their own realms and the compensating characters notice a sudden influx of enemies with enabled War Mode. Blizzard has been closely monitoring high-end participation in raids and other activities and found out that most high-end players gravitate toward the Horde, so they decided to nerf two racials: Arcane Torrent & Berserking in Patch 8.1. Arcane Torrent - Cooldown increased to 2 minutes (up from 1.5 minutes). Berserking will increase Haste by 10% (down from 15%) for 12 seconds (up from 10 seconds). The company's working on passive enticements for high-end players and guilds to change factions. The Horde Hall of Fame was filled up on October 14, the Alliance side had 100 guilds who defeated G'huun on November 5. Alliance is "potentially a little bit" more likely to include more casuals according to Ion. The team is keeping an eye on class and specialization appearance rates in PvP combat.
