5 Things You Should Do Every Day in Legion

Recommended Posts

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 identified a bug with Battle for Azeroth dungeons scaling. A bug fix for the issue will be deployed with scheduled weekly maintenance on Tuesday.
      (Source)
      Along with the players who reported this, we found a bug causing enemies in Battle for Azeroth dungeons to scale well beyond their intended difficulty.
      With scheduled realm maintenance on Tuesday, we will deploy a fix for the bug and the difficulty of the affected dungeons should become very similar to that of Chromie Time leveling dungeons.
      To everyone who reported the state of BFA dungeons: thank you very much.

      We have quite a few class fixes in today's batch, both for PvE and PvP, as well as the Primal Chaos BoA vendor and more, including some Wrath Classic improvements!
      February 2 (Source)
      Classes
      Druid Skull Bash will no longer trigger Precognition when successfully interrupting a Holy Paladin with Concentration Aura. Guardian Fixed an issue where Tooth and Claw did not correctly grant 15% magic damage mitigation. Evoker Temporal Anomaly can now be cast while moving when releasing it through Stasis. Monk Mistweaver Fixed an issue that caused Lesson of Anger to not duplicate some damage or healing sources. Items and Rewards
      Fixed an issue that prevented Blueprint: Utility Mechaclaw from dropping from the Caustic Mechaslime in Mechagon. Player versus Player
      Classes Evoker Quell will no longer trigger Precognition when successfully interrupting another player who is affected by Concentration Aura. Solo Shuffle Fixed an issue where summoned pets’ cooldowns were not correctly being reset between rounds. Professions
      Rabul of the Artisan’s Consortium now sells a Satchel of Coalescing Chaos that binds to your Blizzard Account. This item costs 80 Primal Chaos and provides 60 Primal Chaos to the character who uses it. Developers’ notes: We’ve heard and agree with feedback that players have amassed surplus Primal Chaos on their mains while their alts need all the Primal Chaos they can get. Some Primal Chaos will be lost in the transaction. This is because we want to make sure that while this is a great way for a main to help an alt, the best way to gear up a character should generally be via actually playing that character. Nonetheless, this should provide an additional use for your Primal Chaos, as well as a good way to get some powerful gear to your alts quickly. Inscription Fixed an issue with Darkmoon Decks where the Sagescale Sigil’s shuffle-when-jumping mechanic was being extended to all Darkmoon Decks. Wrath of the Lich King Classic
      Classes Death Knight Fixed an issue where creating your first Death Knight would fail on the first attempt. Druid Nightsong Regalia (Tier 😎 4-set bonus heal now correctly triggers on each Rejuvenation. Developers’ note: The once-on-every-other-Rejuvenation cast is true to the behavior in patch 3.3.5. However, the wording of the Tier 8 set bonus does not reflect this, and instead indicates that Rejuvenation should provide an instant-heal on cast. It seemed like the fair thing to do would be to reimplement the once-on-every-Rejuvenation-cast trigger rate.

      It's been a while since we looked in on the Mythic+ logs and now's the perfect time, as we get to see the results of the new patch tuning! It's still looking pretty yellow on top, but there are plenty of changes all round as well, with Fire coming back with a vengeance.
      Note: The logs are based on POINTS, and not actual damage or healing, meaning they log the timed completion for the specs, with higher keys getting more points, obviously. The time in which the dungeon is completed is also a factor, but a much, much smaller one, as it grants very few points if you do it significantly faster than just any in-time completion. We're also using the Normalized Aggregate Scores numbers, for clarity, meaning the top spec is marked as 100 and then the rest are ranked in relation to that peak point.
      This past week was:
      Fortified , Bolstering, Storming (and Thundering )
      All Keys
      95th percentile
      While the very top of the top percentiles didn't change much with the new patch, with Subtlety and Outlaw switching places in 1 and 2, we do see a big change after that, as an entirely different Mage spec has come to claim the bronze! Fire rises out of the bottom of the chart and claims 3rd, taking it over from Arcane which sees itself 8 spots down. Balance remains strong and doesn't budge from 4th, while Destruction rocket-jumps 12 spots up to claim 5th. Windwalker and Havoc only drop 1, while Shadow takes its cue from Balance and stands still, Enhancement drops a little and Feral rises 2 to close out the top 10. The bottom 3 shuffle around a little but are still the same old 3 specs, with Frost DK getting the short end of the stick this time around.

      Mythic+ All Keys 95th Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
      All Percentiles
      The top 4 for the generalist bracket reflects the top percentiles with the patch changes, but No.5 diverges from that pattern and sees Windwalkers... remain in place as last time we checked here. Havoc remains stable as Destruction takes over Demonology's place, Shadow rises and Arcane drops. 

      Mythic+ All Keys All Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
      Tanks
      Prot Warriors have taken the helm in Mythic+ and moved past Blood DKs, as Vengeance remains in third and Paladins move past Monks, with Guardians down in last - but at least they're getting some significant buffs next week!

      Tank All Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
      Healers
      Preservation stands at the top, just like in raids, and Resto Druids are extremely close behind, as the top two switch positions, while Holy Paladins shoot into 3rd, moving past the Priests and leaving Monks down in the dumps.

      For even more in-depth data for each individual key head on over to Warcraft Logs. And if you're interested in more info on the specs themselves you can always check out our class guides, as well as our Mythic+ guides and Mythic+ tier list.
