Awesome guide and very helpful, thank you. I just have a quick question, when questing in Suramar before unlocking world quests, would it be worth it to keep the quest gear tier one upgrade? I am level 108 right now, and only need friendly with Val'Sharah. I've heard Suramar quests offer pretty good gear, so I was just curious. Thanks!

Yes, it would be worth keeping it for the start of Suramar!

Can you please clarify the choice suggested for Tier 4? I can't tell which it is recommending, I'm guessing the second.

Regarding the order hall upgrades:

The minor troop upgrade does not add a chance to counter a boss, at least not for Druids. It increases success chance on missions with minions, which is independent of a boss. Only the special troop (and champions) can counter a boss.

The special troop upgrade is being recommended above all else for the classes that can get it. Ultimately it's "only" another almost-champion to send on missions and it's only available once a day due to the very long build time. Seeing how (especially with the companion app) the "normal" amount of champions is enough to easily do all missions that are worthwhile I don't really see the benefit of having another troop. It won't allow for more missions to be completed (since champions and regular troops already complete all of them) and it doesn't offer more success chance than a combination of higher troops and champions. The alternate trait on the other hand will save tons of resources in the long run which is quite practical.

I suggest using the greater troop upgrade, so the second one, yes.

The first point is actually a mix-up due to wording. Apologies, I'll fix this ASAP, thanks for bringing it to my attention. My bad!

For your second point, I initally felt the same as you. As I tested it further on the beta, I honestly felt there was a HUGE abundance of order resources and nothing to spend it on. I don't know how much you played in WoD, but garrison resources reached a point very quickly where they were simply useless. I felt that order resources hit the same point, so I would rather have had the special troop.

I'll add a more in-depth explanation of the two choices to the guide.

Agreed, order resources seem abundant right now. But the special troop is quite useless, too. With both being useless it ultimately doesn't matter much which one is taken.

BUT order resources might actually become not useless / abundant once you stop doing the world quests for resources. Those are the main generators for them and I at least don't plan to do them forever. Right now I take them to finish emissary quests but after reaching exalted I plan to just stop doing world quests altogether. I'll be happy to have a huge resource cushion in order to be able to get seals and do missions for weeks or even months without having to farm resources.

So yes, right now order resources are useless since everyone is doing world quests but in the long run I might want to save a few. Might as well, since the extra troop doesn't really give me any benefits anyway (since, especially with the companion app, I can simply do all missions with the champions and troops I already have).

I see your point, fair enough. I'll adjust the commentary on that tier to state that, essentially, it is ultimately your choice. Neither provides some HUGE benefit and you can pick whichever you prefer. I'll give separate advice depending on the person's intentions and what they plan to do in the future of the game.

Thanks for the feedback and I'll make sure to get it updated!

A couple of notes about Eagle Ally, the Tier 2 Hunter advancement.  First, these flight paths are NOT connected to standard flight paths, nor are they interconnected with eachother, meaning to use the Eagle Flight Paths you are restricted to travel along them in one long, looping line.  Second, the Flight Master's Whistle will send you to one of the unconnected Eagle Flight Path's, making it more hindrance than help.  This makes it far less useful than the teleportation nexus for mages.

Thanks for pointing this out! I especially did not know about the interaction with the whistle. I'll make changes to reflect this info in the next update.

a quick note that might be worth indicating is for the Tier 2 monk Brewhouse, the daily tapping of the keg does have a chance to reward you with the hidden appearance for the Brewmaster artifact, which could be incentive for some to keep it around even if the buff brews are not of much use

I'll get that added! Is there a chance for any of the other hidden appearances (WW/MW), that you are aware of?

I have a quick question. For tier 4, druidso have two troops to choose from, but the recommendation is that the player choose the troop. Which of the two should druids take?

Not exclusive to monks, it seems some of the other classes have appearances related to their unique Tier 2 choice.

Alternate appearance items can drop for:
Vengeance Demon Hunters (from Twisting Nether advancement)

Restoration Druids (From Rich Soil)

Frost Mages (From Portal Nexus)

Destruction Warlocks (From Demonic Offering)

Thanks! Will do some more research and update this section, as well as the "hidden artifact" section. Most likely coming mid-week this week.

Thanks once again :)

While true, I found that the fast "flying" or at least the 2 minute gliding from the eagle feathers wind up being more useful than the flying itself.  Since I never made any of the additional gliders in WoD, nor the other gliding "toys", I found that helpful.  That alone makes it helpful, especially in high elevation change areas in Broken Isles.

I'm glad to hear the other side of the argument here. I had to weigh up both when considering recommendations, so I'm glad someone found the same usefulness that I did!

Please update t2 warrior advancement choice:

  • Warrior: A chance at loot from the Circle of Glory is the best choice in the early game, while the mission duration reduction will be best once raids have released.

 

The rewards from this are nowhere close to having 20% reduced mission time.  I have talked to many warriors in my class hall that have been disappointed that they followed icy veins guide on this and now have to wait an extra 3 days to switch back.

Hi there!

I'm sorry to hear that, I definitely wasn't intending for that result with the guide. I agree that I underestimated the value of the reduction when considering the campaign missions rather than just looking at the order hall missions on the whole. You are correct, the reduction is the best choice and I will update to reflect that. 

Thanks for pointing it out and once again, sorry!

Hey

TL;DR: add TL;DR section to your guides or disappear from google.

So this will probably never pass moderation.

Every time I enter icy-veins I'm disappointed with your page. You have awesome guides, really detailed, worth reading and so on. But whenever I google some general topics like "druid order advancement" your webpage is on top. And when I google such topic I don't want to read 8 pages long guide, I just want straight answers. "On tier 4 chose this, because its best". Your webpage gives full detailed list of all possible choices with totally too long description, but no real advice. Or perhaps there are some, but well hidden and I've never got there. So please could you make your webpage appear second on google, not first? 

Sometimes long reading is required, like mastering your character. And then you're too shallow, more advanced studies are required. But when something could be simply answered "A is better than B" then your page on top of google makes it sound difficult. Adding '-icy' to every google search is annoying, so could you make something that you don't pop on top of google results?

Best regards

Quick request for updating on this guide, the Tier 5 paladin and Demon Hunter Tier 5 upgrade to complete world quests was hotfixed last week or so. You can now use the items (which only take 10 minutes to make now) to complete a basic world quest every 18 hours instead of 3 days.

Personally I've found this useful in completing the PvP world quests (which I'm not keen on doing) and thus gaining honor and prestige ranks without needing to do the quests, but it's your call.

Ah, very interesting. I actually didn't think about this application at all after the hotfix, since I'm someone that actively PvPs alongside PvE. It didn't really register that people might struggle with the PvP quests. Thanks for letting me know!

      The latest 7.3 PTR build 24651 brings the usual Tier 21 changes, class changes, many new items and mounts.
      Patch 7.3 Build 24651 Highlights
      Raiding with Leashes V: Cuteaclysm is here with many new pets to earn from Cataclysm raids. Lightforged Warframe is rewarded from reaching Exalted with the Army of Light faction. We previewed the mount in more detail here. Antoran Gloomhound is rewarded from Glory of the Argus Raider. Antoran Charhound drops from the dogs encounter in Antorus as we suspected. Mythic: Argus the Unmaker achievement now rewards the title "Titanslayer". Dev Notes
      Blizzard (Source)
      As we mentioned last week, the PTR update for this week (and future weeks) is focused on iterative improvements to the content that’s already available for testing. You may find a few new additions here and there (including some new pet battle content), but the bulk of our efforts this week have focused on refining Argus’ rewards and itemization. Please let us know what you think!

      Additionally, we’re planning to start raid testing in the near future – keep an eye out here on the PTR forums for details there.

      Well, Mythic Tomb has been clear for a little over a week, so it's obviously time for the next raid to start testing! We're getting three Heroic bosses on Friday and then "if testing goes well" the zone will remain up over the weekend on Normal mode.
      Skordyn (source)
      On Friday, July 28th we will be conducting our first raid test of Antorus, the Burning Throne. If testing goes well, the zone will remain open over the weekend for Normal mode testing. Friday, July 28th
      Garothi Worldbreaker - Heroic Antorus, the Burning Throne
      13:00 PDT (16:00 EDT, 22:00 CEST)
      Felhounds of Sargeras - Heroic Antorus, the Burning Throne
      14:00 PDT (17:00 EDT, 23:00 CEST)
      War Council - Heroic Antorus, the Burning Throne
      15:00 PDT (18:00 EDT, 0:00 CEST)
      Once Heroic testing has concluded, these three bosses will remain open on Normal mode over the weekend.
      As always, this testing schedule is very fluid and subject to the realities of a PTR 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.
      Q: How do I get into the raid zone?
      A: In Dalaran, Orgrimmar, or Stormwind, you may speak to Nexus-Lord Donjon Rade Sr. 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 110 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.

      The weekly world boss rotation is currently random. We saw Withered J'm up for two weeks several times, but things will change in Patch 7.3.
      Patch 7.3 introduces a fixed world boss rotation. No more waiting for Nithogg to spawn! Another great example is Na'zak, who spawned once since Legion launch and drops Recipe: Potion of Prolonged Power (Rank 3) for Alchemists.

      After the maintenance's over in your region, there are several hotfixes that will come into effect. The third LFR Wing of the Tomb is now available with Maiden of Vigilance and Fallen Avatar. There's a new PvP Brawl and you can get up to 50% more reputation from World Quests.
      Hotfixes & Tomb of Sargeras Mythic Nerfs
      Many hotfixes related to PvE & PvP will be live once maintenance ends in your region. The Tomb of Sargeras nerfs make the final two encounters easier, so expect a lot more Kil'jaeden Mythic kills in the coming days. Tomb of Sargeras LFR Wing #3
      Chamber of the Avatar opens with Maiden of Vigilance and Fallen Avatar. Mythic Keystone Affixes
      Teeming // Quaking // Fortified World Quests Bonus Event (July 25 - August 1)
      For the duration of the event, reputation gained from World Quests is increased by 50% (Sign of the Emissary). This is great for farming reputation Paragon caches / mounts or unlock flying. The weekly quest "The World Awaits" rewards 5,000 Order Resources once you complete 20 world quests. PvP Brawl: Arathi Blizzard (July 25 - August 1)
      Put away your bathing suit, pull out your parka, and enter a winter wonderland as the Arathi Basin you know and love gets a fresh coat of ice and snow. You'll be racing your way between the farm, stables, mine, lumberyard, and blacksmith through piles of snow and over a - mostly - frozen lake. One more thing: the weather forecast calls for a bit of fog of war. We hope you're prepared for the weather.

      The mages of Azeroth like to relax, too. Hop into a portal at your watering hole and join the Tavern Crawl. The micro-holiday is centered around inns.

It's the first time Tavern Crawl's up, because it was disabled in the past. The event was suffering from issues that couldn't be hotfixed.

We've also heard that there will be a big post coming where all the issues they've had with ToS will be discussed by the GM, Alveona:
       
      What do you think about the situation, are Exorsus being too harsh on the devs or do they have a point?
