5 Things You Should Do Every Day in Legion

24 posts in this topic

world-dissolve-still.jpg

So, you've reached level 110 and you are at a loss at what you need to do? Or you are already experienced enough, but still need to figure out which of the numerous max-level content activities are worth doing? We've got you covered!

Max-level content can seem daunting at first, since there are a lot more things to do now. However, once you get these things in order and set up a plan, you will see that's it's not difficult to keep up with all (or at least most) of them.

Below, we have a list of 5 activities you should aim to do each day. Obviously, it depends on the type of player you are and what content you prefer to do. The importance of each activity degrades depending on its number, but again it's up to you to decide what you want to prioritise. As you will see, most of these activities are intertwined, meaning one helps the other (or with other content) and/or they work for the same goal.

1. Start Artifact Knowledge research and Order Hall advancements

4P0YLLY523GH1471229296915.jpg

Technically not an every-day activity, but still of utmost importance. Even though there are catch-up mechanics for people that can’t play every day, it’s crucial to get started early with both of these things. Artifact Knowledge will increase the rate at which you gain Artifact Power. The first work order will give a 25% increase so, for example, if an item gave you 100 AP before, now it will give you 125. The Order Hall advancements are also important. You can check which ones to pick, as well as the cost of each of them, in our guide.

2. Finish your Order Hall campaign

Again, this won't happen in a single day, but you should get it done as soon as possible. The campaigns for most classes are time-gated, meaning that they mostly require 8- or even 12-hour missions. Some campaigns even require materials. Once you complete your campaign, you will unlock a new skin for your Artifact, two more Champions and an ilvl 830 chest. More importantly, you will get your third relic slot, which will give you a significant item level boost.

3. Suramar: Work on your Nightfallen reputation

0NYC3T97JYJJ1472564151604.jpg

When you hit level 110, you will be able to go to Suramar. There, you will work with the Nightfallen, a faction of exiled Nightborne, who are trying to reclaim their city from their traitorous queen, who has allied herself with Gul’dan. Suramar can be a bit challenging for a newly dinged level 110 character, but it is imperative that you start questing there early.

Suramar has a TON of quests, but you should focus on the main storylines that can be found under the achievement Good SuramaritanGood Suramaritan. These quests award reputation with the Nightfallen. It is advised to also do all Nightfallen World Quests (once you unlock them) in Suramar, since it is another means to gain rep with this faction. If you don’t have time for both, do the World Quests first. Lastly, you should run the Withered Army Training scenario once every 3 days. The most effective and profitable way to do this is by taking 20 Withered with you, thus spending 2000 Ancient Mana for it. For that, you will need to work on increasing your Ancient Mana cap. You can learn more about Ancient Mana here.

Why is Nightfallen reputation important? By reaching Friendly with the Nightfallen (and all other factions), you will be able to unlock World Quests. At Honored, you will unlock the main storyline Blood and Wine, which will help you further increase how much Ancient Mana you can hold. At 8000/12000 Honored, the Mythic-only dungeons Court of Stars and The Arcway will unlock. The goal is to reach Revered with the Nightfallen.

4. Do World Quests, but don’t overdo it

SXQ90I1HO90A1472545395161.jpg

World Quests are the new dailies. Once you reach Friendly with all Legion factions (minus The Wardens), a quest will open up for you in Dalaran which will allow you to do World Quests. We already have a guide on World Quests, so here we will discuss which ones you should prioritise. Obviously, you need to always do the emissary. Other than that, here are the dailies you should be looking for:

  • Anything that awards Nightfallen reputation (see point 3).
  • Anything that awards Wardens reputation. The only direct way you can get rep with this faction is by doing their World Quests and Vault of the Wardens. You can learn about other ways in our guide.
  • Anything that awards Artifact Power.
  • Anything that awards gear. The good thing with these World Quests is that the gear rewards scale with your current item level. Therefore, they can offer lucrative rewards for both new 110s and veterans.

The following have lower priority, but you can hunt them down if needed: Order Hall resources, profession dailies that award recipes or Blood of Sargeras. Anything else should be avoided.

5. Dungeons

QJA16QJ2CDP91471652044141.jpg

Nothing special to say here. Dungeons will help you gear up and gain Artifact Power. Normal dungeon queues can take up to an hour for a DPS at max level. You need 810 ilvl to queue for a random heroic. If you want to be super-efficient, you can go full hardcore and do all 8 heroics every day since they award 400 AP each. At the moment, heroic dungeon queues for DPS are around 10-15 minutes. Experienced players should run Mythic dungeons each week and work to unlock the two Suramar Mythic dungeons. You can find some gearing tips at the end of this article.

Have you not had enough yet?!

QI4XSJENA3UF1470273443577.jpg

Here are some other things you can do at max level. Some of them can be done as side-activities, while others will be unlocked in the near future for you.

  • Level your professions. Crafted gear (including trinkets and rings/necks) from primary professions is 850 ilvl, which is currently the highest item level you can achieve (assuming you don’t get a legendary). You should also do your profession quests. Secondary professions have their own activities: Fishing has its very own Artifact, Cooking recipes are unlocked with Work Orders and Archaeology has a questline.  
  • Get your weekly bonus roll (once you unlock the 5th Order Hall advancement).
  • Do the weekly world boss (once they are added to the game). A preview guide can be found here.

Closing tips on gearing up

EA4OYDP6FOA11472237588265.jpg

Let’s face it: getting better gear is one of the end-game goals of WoW and a high priority for a lot of players. When you hit level 110, you should be nearing 800 ilvl. For some reason, the climb to 810 ilvl, when heroics are unlocked, feels exceptionally steep. My advice is to hunt for the World Quests that award gear (4) and do some normal dungeons (5), although queues can take a while. Less steep, but still not easy, is the climb to 820 ilvl, at which point you become good enough to join a Mythic dungeon. Again, keep doing World Quests and farm heroics.

Heroics are worth farming even after you outgear them, since they have a low, yet not negligible chance of dropping Warforged and/or Titanforged gear. After that, you should work on your Suramar dungeons attunement (3); some pretty sweet trinkets drop from there. Completing the Order Hall campaign (2) will help a lot with increasing your item level. Lastly, another solid gearing option is to unlock your Order Hall armor set.

Level your professions. Crafted gear (including trinkets and rings/necks) from primary professions is 850 ilvl, 

 

Not true. The highest Ilvl you can get from JC is currently 815.

You can upgrade with Obliterum no?

Yep, Obliterum upgrades (all 7 of them) help you reach 850 ilvl! I forgot to mention working on the Obliterum forge quest ^^

it can be quite costly but Peelyon has a pretty neat guide on how to turn it into something profitable!

Very good summary!

I found the 800-810 ilvl climb easier by focussing on the order hall gear set, you can find your gearset and the linked achievements to get each piece on guides here on icy veins.

But most importantly, from the same merchant that sells the gear, you can also buy upgrade tokens for that gear.
Going up to 840 ilvl I believe (could also be 850 but not sure), which greatly boosted my overall ilvl!

Can go up to 840 with upgrades, with the shoulders being the only piece that starts at and can reach 850.

Hi all i was hoping someone could tell me how to get the 815 jc ring/neck recipes thatbyou are talking about.

Hey there! It mainly depends on which one you're looking for. Some are bought from Jabrul, others are obtained via quests.

Here are the 815 recipes for rings:

For necks, all of the recipes come from Jabrul, the NPC linked above.

Thank you for this guide. Would like an explanation of why grinding rep with the Wardens is so important. It doesn't say currently.

I'm assuming professions and the Blood of Sargeras shoulder enchant? And/or Revered for Pathfinder achievement? All of these seem optional, or at least not needed by everyone...

I believe that getting the Wardens rep to Revered (for the shoulder enchant) was assumed a very important step in getting the BiS crafted preraid gear, before we knew the live drop rates for Blood of Sargeras and epic gear upgrades from world quests.

Right now I feel no need in any particular rush with this rep (maybe except for Inscriptors that want to have Vantus runes recipes before raids start): we are getting a huge amount of bloods and a pretty good rate of 845-850 epic gear upgrades from dungeon runs and world quests.

What Pandacho said + the Pathfinder achievement and the various profession recipes. It's so hard to level this rep with only WQs, the dungeon and the occasional Kirin Tor emissary, I think it's better to start early :)

personally, I am at the beginning of Honored with the Wardens (Revered with everything else) and I have been actively trying to do most of their WQs!

When flying released in Draenor, people were complaining about how terrible it was to do etc.

If you do that little bit every day, as Zadina says, things are just so much simpler rather than rushing it later on.

Hi guys a couple of questions mabe you could help me out on. So i was looking up a pretty popular gamer on the armory and it was showing he had plus 325 mastery gems. Is that even possible i thought the highest gems only gave plus 200. Another thing is for frost dks the stat priority is strength crit then haste according to the guide on here. I always thought mastery was the best since it increases pretty much all damage done?

Tooltips aren't always updated immediately on the armory, especially since Legion launch.

For your other question, generally you should ask that in the DK forum. I'll answer it here anyway though:

Stats are calculated via sims. Just because Mastery increases your frost damage doesn't mean it provides the best DPS per point. Scaling, rotation and general playstyle can all have an impact on it.

I got through it by just doing the Order Hall quests that require Order Resources. Keep an eye out for any order Resources quests that have a banner on them and prioritize those. They will give you followers and require you to go into certain zones and fight through story quests.

If you want more detail than that, you need to be willing to accept spoilers.

There are several detailed pages at wowhead.

e.g.

There can be a few things that have an impact on this. Are they both 110? Have you completed all quests in your log that belong to the Class Hall Campaign subset? Did you complete the quests to go do dungeons on your DK?

Also remember that different campaigns take different amounts of time, since the missions used to be longer for some. Now that the mission time is the same for everyone, different campaign time length definitely starts to show.

      Blizzard agrees that earning Azerite Armor in Mythic+ feels overly based on luck and in Tides of Vengeance, players will have more control over the Azerite gear they earn through Mythic+.
      Blizzard is adding a new currency in Patch 8.1, which you'll earn from your weekly Mythic+ chest and from scrapping and disenchanting epic-quality Azerite Armor. The weekly chest will no longer reward Azerite Armor. Thaumaturge Vashreen will be selling caches that reward a random dungeon Azerite Armor piece for a given slot that will be separated by item level.
      To give players even more control over Azerite Armor, Vashreen will also offer ilvl 385 versions of the specific dungeon Azerite Armor pieces for each class, sold at premium.
      Only Azerite Armor scrapped in 8.1 will yield the new currency. Vashreen's wares will increase accordingly when the second Mythic+ season starts.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Couple quick clarifications based on feedback so far: Only Azerite Armor that drops after Tides of Vengeance is released will scrap/disenchant into the new currency. Don't worry about hoarding the Azerite pieces you're earning now. When the next Mythic+ season starts, and item levels increase, the item levels of Thaumaturge Vashreen's wares will increase accordingly. We recognize that PvPers want more options and choice too. We're talking about that separately. Check out our Tides of Vengeance content hub for the latest Patch 8.1 information.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Throughout the discussions regarding Azerite Armor, there’s been a lot of talk about how you earn Azerite pieces from Mythic+ dungeons. Players have told us – and we agree – that the process of earning Azerite Armor through Mythic+ feels overly based on luck, and that there isn’t enough control in the players’ hands. Even with our bad luck protection systems in place, the sheer number of potential Azerite pieces you can get from the weekly chest means that trying to get ahold of a specific piece feels hopeless. That’s a problem we want to solve, and give you some control over the Azerite gear you earn through Mythic+. So here’s what we’re working on for Tides of Vengeance:
      First, we’re adding a new (as yet unnamed) currency, which you’ll earn from your weekly Mythic+ chest as well as from scrapping (or disenchanting) epic-quality Azerite Armor. This currency is rewarded in addition to the item in the chest (which can no longer be an Azerite piece), and the amount you earn will scale up exponentially based on the highest level Keystone you’ve completed. For example, completing a level 10 Keystone will reward you with about three times as much as clearing a level 7. Similarly, scrapping higher-item-level Azerite pieces will give you significantly higher amounts of this currency than lower-level pieces.

      To spend that currency, we’re bringing back an old friend: Thaumaturge Vashreen. He’ll have two main types of items for sale. The first are caches that reward a random dungeon Azerite Armor piece for a given slot (helm, shoulders, or chest). They’ll be separated out by item level as well (at 355, 370, and 385), with higher item level caches requiring significantly more currency to purchase. But we recognize that with six or more options per slot, this may still not be enough control for high-end players who want to be able to work towards a specific piece that perfectly complements their build. Thus, Vashreen will also offer Item Level 385 versions of the specific dungeon Azerite Armor pieces for each class, sold at a premium.
      We’re still nailing down the exact numbers, but our goal for tuning this new currency is that you’ll be able to purchase one of the Azerite caches that lines up roughly with the item level of the gear you’re getting from your Mythic+ runs every two or three weeks, with the specific 385 pieces as long-term goals for top players.
      Overall, we believe that this change will improve things in a lot of different ways:
      Mythic+ players of all skill levels will now have a clear path to upgrading their Azerite slots High-end Mythic+ players will have a way to target specific Azerite pieces to optimize their setups Duplicate or unwanted Azerite pieces from other sources (such as raiding) now have some additional value The piece of gear in your weekly chest will have a more reliable item level You should see all of this hitting the Tides of Vengeance PTR sometime in the next week or so. We really do appreciate your feedback, and believe that this, in addition to the new traits and other improvements coming to the Azerite system in Tides of Vengeance, will help ease a lot of the concerns about Azerite Armor in Mythic+ and as a whole.
