A brand new raid was announced along with the WoW companion app for world quests and missions, Karazhan was detailed as well as the next Suramar campaign.

There were many announcements in the PAX West stream, the new raid and the app being the headliners, so let's take a look at everything:

Patch 7.1 new raid, Trial of Valor

Trial of Valor will be a very small raid set in Helheim, meant to fill the gap between the Emerald Nightmare and Nighthold. It will continue the Stormheim story of Odin and Helya, but will also have a part of Illidan's story line in there as well!

Patch 7.1 and Karazhan

Karazhan will basically be a 5 man raid as the difficulty will be higher than Mythic dungeons and it will have a weekly lockout. But that's not all - there will also be quests around the tower itself coming with the patch.

As for the dungeon itself, it'll revisit old events and put a new spin on them, with new plays at the opera and a new and much weirder chess room. If that wasn't enough there's also an upside-down and an Alice in Wonderland area.

 

Legion Mobile Companion App

The app will allow you to manage missions, class hall upgrades, champion and minion equipment/recruitment and daily quest overview. It's coming out this Tuesday for both Android and Iphones.

 

 

New Suramar Content

A weekly quest campaign lasting 9 weeks, helping the Nighfallen try to stop the Nighbourne and Legion.

 

All of this content is supposed to be on the PTR soon and sounds like a pretty content heavy first patch for Legion, which is great!

Well considering how little content we got for WoD, I am glad to see that Blizzard is taking player complaints seriously.  The app will be very useful and Kara looks awesome!

I believe the rule is "Trial of the" and THEN you run for your life.

wait.... adding things people actually want as well as relevant content and enough material to justify a monthly subscription fee?

well I gotta say FF14 Heavensward Wow, is really shaping up :D. Go Square Enix Blizzard devs!!!!

in all seriousness though, the content droughts in WoD were horrific and heavensward set the bar for keeping a constant flow of content available to player. i'm happy the devs are taking note and copying some of the better ideas from their competitors. We don't always need 37 boss raids, as long as you give players something relevant and fun to do, they will stay happy.

Content with this expansion seems to be burning down quick.  Normal through mythic were done by many members of our guild this first week.  Normal was...  less than difficult.  Perhaps it was supposed to be for 'starter' content...  This is my first expansion since BC when I started, as a member of a previous-content raiding guild.

Mythic dungeons aren't really there to challenge us though. Mythic+ is where things will start to get VERY difficult in dungeons.

Exactly.  Mythic was the challenge in WoD.  Now, just another tier of perhaps moderate difficulty. 

I suppose it must be easier for the LFG's and premades.

In both WoD and Legion, Mythic dungeons were never meant to be the apex of difficulty. They are just something for 5-man groups to steam through that presents slightly more challenge than heroic dungeons. The Mythic+ system will allow players that want difficulty to have it so difficult they can't kill the first mob of the dungeon, if they want that. You can have M+ dungeons that are slightly challenging, still easy enough to clear, just as you can have M+ dungeons that are so hard you will be seconds before the timer runs out completing it.

I think maybe I was just too geared in WoD to notice the difficulty of Mythic dungeons, but at least in Legion, they were never intended to be particularly hard. They just make undergeared people unable to pull huge amounts.

M+ will bring the difficulty people want.

      It seems we're getting some more tuning next reset. A lot of it is actually tuning the class legendaries and it's not that many classes that will be affected: Frost DKs, Ret Palas, Rogues and Subtletly in particular, as well as Arms Warrs are getting some slight to not so slight changes!
      July 25 (source)
      We're looking to make the following changes with maintenance in each region next week:

      Classes

      Death Knight
      Frost Fixed a bug preventing Hungering Rune Weapon from generating a Rune at the correct rate of once every 1.5 seconds. All damage abilities increased by 5%.
        Paladin
      Retribution
      Blade of Justice damage increased by 10% (unchanged in PvP). Crusader Strike damage increased by 10%.
      Items
      Rogue
      All Specs
      Mantle of the Master Assassin duration reduced to 5 seconds (was 6 seconds). Subtlety Denial of the Half-Giants cooldown reduction reduced to 0.2 seconds per combo point spent (was 0.3 seconds).
        Warrior
      Arms
      The Great Storm's Eye damage bonus per stack reduced to 2% (was 4%). Ayala's Stone Heart now procs 40% less often for Arms Warriors.

      About us:
      Converge has been around since WoW Vanilla and has been raiding together since Molten Core; most of our members have been playing together for years. In its older days, when most of us where young, we were more raid focused and demanded a lot from our members. Over the years we had to adjust our playtime and priorities with a growing list of RL responsibilities and are now a two day raiding guild; we had to cut our total hours spent playing WoW but we still remain just as competitive and result oriented.
       
      Mandatory reading.
      Basics: be ilvl 890+; 52+ points in MS Artifact Weapon.
      Raiding 101: be able to execute/avoid fight mechanics; communicate in English and use a microphone.
      We raid twice a week, a total of 6 hours; attendance of 90% is mandatory. We require you to function at 100% from the second the raid starts all the way to its end; if you cannot commit to a raiding schedule and be online on time this is not a guild for you.
      Currently we are trying to build up our roster to start Mythics.
       
      Raid Times: 8:00 PM – 11:00 AM Eastern Time – Monday/Tuesday.
       
      Recruitment: Ranged DPS / Heals / Melee DPS (Rogues only)
       
      Legion Progression:
      EN 7/7 Heroic
      ToV 3/3 Heroic
      NH 10/10 Heroic
      ToS 4/9 Heroic

      Contacts:  
      BTag: Shig#1825
       
      *Do not send PMs, get in touch in-game; do not contact unless you are ready to transfer if accepted for a permanent raid spot.

We are 10 /10 Heroic Nighthold (10/10 N NH in about 1 1/2 hours) (Providing we arent cutting up and getting yelled at.... by a certain mage in our guild.... who cuts up too.... and won't admit it..... and puts down fake portals.... every week..... and people still take them.... to their death..... really......week..... after week.... to their death...... seriously)
      As always we are recruiting raiders and non raiders.
      *****GIRLS***** We have a large number of female gamers who do not have to worry about harrasment of any kind...we just will not tolerate this... and our group is like family. Come see for yourself!

      Our raid schedule is Tuesday/Thursday/Sunday 6:30pm to 9:00pm server time(pst)
      We currently have an "Alt" raid for alts and non-progression raiders on Mondays at the same time! MEGA amounts of fun there, alot of us use our mains to carry this raid and help gear these raiders up!
      Other guild events include: Herb Drives, Fishing Expo, Mog off! (Best transmog wins), Old Raids for Transmog gear & Mythic Plus runs. We do random guild events with prizes up to and including a FREE MONTH OF WOW! (Mog-Off is going on NOW!!)

Of course you will be required to sacrifice a goat or an alliance player once a week to the Horde gods..... You will also be required to laugh and have fun as well! We do have fun!
      So.......COME.......GET.......CORRUPTED!
