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.

      The Horde story in Battle for Azeroth culminates in the Zandalar Forever scenario, where players help King Rastakhan defend the Horde capital before it gets destroyed by Zul. This article contains spoilers.
      This article contains spoilers!
      The Zandalar Forever scenario becomes available after you complete all the major storylines in Zandalar (The Throne of Zuldazar, The Dark Heart of Nazmir, Secrets in the Sands & A Bargain of Blood). Completing it rewards the The Final Seal and the Zandalar Forever! achievement.
      TL;DR
      In Nazmir, you learn about Blood Trolls that worship G'huun (the main boss of Uldir). In Zuldazar, you learn about King Rastakhan and Prophet Zul's betrayal. You help Rastakhan end his evil plans. Vol'dun's storyline revolves around the Sethrak and their successful effort to summon Mythrax to this world. The Horde story in Zuldazar culminates in the Zandalar Forever scenario, where G'huun orders Zul to shatter the final seal in order to free him with the help of Mythrax, the Unraveller. Zandalar Forever Scenario
      In the final scenario, Dazar'alor is under attack from all sides. The Blood Trolls and the Sethrak are closing in and players help King Rastakhan reach Zul, while his daughter, Princes Talanji, holds off Mythrax. The scenario is still a work-in-progress, but you get a pretty good idea about what to expect.
      TL;DR
      G'huun orders Prophet Zul to break the final seal (destroy the pyramid) to free him. An in-game cinematic is missing, but we know that Zul's going to be resurrected and we'll encounter him in Uldir.

      Battle for Azeroth Alpha Build 26476 added high-resolution maps of all new zones of Kul Tiras and Zandalar.
      Our Alpha Build 26476 coverage includes:
      Blood Elf & Human Racial Nerfs Changing Skin Color in Barber Shop Dark Iron Dwarves & Mag'har Orcs New Azerite Traits Latest Talent Changes The Burning of Teldrassil Intro Kul Tiras (Drustvar / Tiragarde Sound / Stormsong Valley)

      Zandalar (Nazmir / Vol'dun / Zuldazar)

      (Source)

      The Burning of Teldrassil intro is now available on Battle for Azeroth Alpha. The most recent build added a portion of the scenario that results in the Battle for Lordaeron.
      The Burning of Teldrassil Intro
      It all starts with Anduin offering the initial quest in Stormwind Keep.
      A Short-Lived Peace
      <Player Name>
      As the Legion's presence wanes from our world, a new threat has arisen. It is with a heavy heart that I must ask you to lay your life down for the Alliance once more.
      I have received a disturbing message from our operatives stationed in Orgrimmar. It seems that the Warchief has already began spinning the gears of war.
      I await your arrival at Stormwind Keep to discuss matters further.
      You, as my father's champion, have fought bravely in the name of the Alliance time and time again. For that, I owe you a great debt of gratitude.
      The Horde Uprising
      Reports have indicated that the Horde is mobilizing an army towards Silithus. Given the potential that azerite has to change the face of war, it should come as no surprise that the Warchief would want to lay her claim on it.
      The only surprise is that it has begun so soon. The Horde and the Alliance have both suffered unimaginable losses on Argus.
      Speak with Mathias Shaw. I want you to oversee Stormwind's presence in Silithus.
      <Master Mathias Shaw appears>
      A Disturbance in Ashenvale
      The Horde! They diverted at the North fork of the Barrens! They have marched on Ashenvale!
      Most of Malfurion's troops have already set sail for Silithus, but Darnassus has sent its city guards to help reinforce Astranaar. Their captain goes by the name of Delaryn Summermoon.
      Find her, <Player Name>. Hold the city for as long as you can. King Anduin and I will send a fleet as soon as we can muster.
      Now you must take the boat to Darnassus from Stormwind Harbor and fly from Rut'theran Village to Astranaar. Once you enter Astranaar, you'll see the village on fire and notice a bunch of Night Elf corpses that have been poisoned by Rogues.
      The Light of Elune
      My sisters lie slain on the soft earth of Ashenvale. We are trained to expect losses in battle, but I have never seen something so horrific -- something so -- cowardly. The Horde have sunk to a new low in this war.
      We do not have time to grieve, but we are not savages as the horde have proven to be.
      Please, <Player Name>, will you help me say a prayer to Elune so that we may honor the fallen? Their wisps deserve the light of her blessing.
      The next step is to honor the bodies of the fallen soldiers in Astranaar. This quest is really simple. All you need to do is to click six corpses.
      A Soft Glow
      This light of the wisps... it is all around us. Why does the forest awaken?
      I hear... something. That sounds -- could it be our Shan'do?
      Quickly, <Player Name>, Malfurion beckons!
      You go to Twilight Vale, where you find fallen Orgrimmar Raiders, Sylvanas and Malfurion. Malfurion roots everyone and the Horde soldiers try to rush through the wall of wisps and attack, but get killed in the process.
      Malfurion informs you that you can pass through the wall unharmed while Sylvanas escapes.
      To Darnassus!
      The Warchief has come for us. I knew this day would come.
      Our forces have been gathered in Darnassus, though many of them have already set sail for Silithus. Meet with Shandris Feathermoon and alert her of the Warchief's presence.
      Elune be with you, <Player Name>.
      <Captain Delarym Summermoon appears>
      You learn that most of the Alliance troops have been sent to Silithus and the Alliance may be outnumbered and not able to defend Teldrassil. Go to Darnassus and find Shandris Feathermoon to tell her that the Horde have invaded Darkshore.
      The intro ends here, with the requirements to mount a fey dragon and slay 50 Horde soldiers.

      You can visit the Barber Shop and change your skin color for 300 Gold and 54 Silver in Battle for Azeroth.
      The option to alter your skin color is only available to older races and the four Allied Races right now on Battle for Azeroth Alpha. We tried Humans, Orcs and Void Elves. All races could change their skin color for 300 Gold and 54 Silver.

      We noticed that Dark Iron Dwarves and Mag'har Orcs were not able to change their skin color in the Barber Shop for now. The option wasn't there. Hopefully, it's just a bug that will be fixed in a future build, because both Allied Races just became available for playtesting on Alpha.

      Who We Are
      Tequila Sundown is a mythic raid team formed within the <Karma Horde> guild on US-Stormreaver. Lead by a husband/wife team with high-level raiding experience dating back to WotLK, we're a "positively determined" progression team that maintains a light-hearted atmosphere while tackling mythic difficulty content. We're mature adults with jobs and family seeking like-minded players who have a passion for the game but want to avoid the needless angst or drama that often gets associated with progression raiding. We log on to have fun - so come have some fun with us!

      A Team Within a Community
      Our raid team is one of three within the larger guild of <Karma Horde>, which was formed back during WotLK. As such, the guild and Discord are very active and social. There are always people around online and in-game. The community atmosphere is welcoming and friendly to players of all levels. The guild enforces a Code of Conduct that has zero tolerance for hate/offensive speech.
      We are always looking to add players with a friendly personality and lots of passion for the game. We want players who are going to log in on non-raid nights and be down for all the other things we're into: pushing mythic+, doing world quests, PVP shenanigans, achievement hunting, hyper-competitive fishing.. there's so much to do and so many ways to enjoy the game. This is our favorite hobby and we'd like to play with you if it is yours, too.

      Progression Goals
      We are 6/11 Mythic, Heroic AOTC Antorus progression.
      We strive for a fun environment that takes the challenges of mythic seriously and giving the content the respect it deserves. Our aim is, as all mythic teams, full clear of content but with always keeping the friendly spirit of camaraderie alive. Performance matters, but so does staying positive and finding the fun in the difficulty of a raid. We do not require mythic raid experience to join our team but we do expect mythic-level dedication and accountability from all of our raiders. You must be able to take constructive criticism and have ownership over your level of play, and be willing to put in the effort to be a contribution to the team.

      Raid Days/Times
      Our mandatory raids are:
      Tuesdays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Thursdays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Optional:
      Sundays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Sundays are for farming the previous raid difficulty.

      Recruitment Needs
      Healer: We need to add a healer to our core. Holy Paladin preferred.
      DPS: We are looking for DPS with the gear/experience to contribute immediately. Will consider all specs but we currently lack a dedicated Mage, Elemental Shaman, and Windwalker Monk. Bonus points for good healing offspec. 

      The Nitty Gritty
      If you're intrigued, please check out our wiki on the <Karma Horde> subreddit. This will give you a deeper dive into the raid team:
