13 posts in this topic

The Suramar campaign continues in Patch 7.1 with new quests, and a variety of rewards including items, a mount and Artifact Power.

If you thought you'd be finished with Suramar after hitting Exalted, you merely had a break! In Patch 7.1, the campaign continues with a nine-week quest series culminating in the InsurrectionInsurrection achievement. Arcanist's ManasaberArcanist's Manasaber reward will likely require the Nighthold to open first. Finishing parts of the quest line award items with an item level range of 830 - 850 and Artifact Power as usual. If you've got Alchemy, don't forget to grab the new elixir recipe Recipe: Potion of Prolonged PowerRecipe: Potion of Prolonged Power.

Patch 7.1 Suramar Campaign Quests

To start the quests, you need to have Exalted reputation.

The following quest series have been added:

If you hate spoilers, stop reading right now or proceed at your own risk. You have been warned.

Spoiler

Suramar is heavy under siege and both the Alliance & Horde send their forces to help. The innkeeper that provided port to Shal'Aran has been killed and you need to save a lot of inhabitants of Suramar and set up a new portal. You'll see

  • More powerful demons were added to Suramar. They now instantly root you and remove MasqueradeMasquerade.
  • Vanthir is made a public example of in the center of Suramar, placed in a magical prison to wither away.

The quest mainly involves the elven races and the tensions are high! All the elven races set up a camp outside of Suramar.

Kal'dorei (Night Elves)

Represented by Tyrande Whisperwind

  • She's nostalgic about Suramar (her city of birth). Ten thousand years she returns to wrest it from the grasp of those she once believed were her people.
  • She has Kal'dorei Scouts & Sentinels.

Shal'dorei (Nightborne)

Represented by Thalyssra.

Sin'dorei (Blood Elves)

Represented by Lady Liadrin

  • Thinks that only her blood knights are capable of solving the conflict (she's very vocal about her battlefield capabilities).
  • Veressa is too obsessed with revenge against the Horde.
  • Tyrande knows little of a war of this type of battlefield.

Quel'dorei (High Elves)

Represented by Vereesa Windrunner

  • She can't imagine to share the same camp with the Kal'dorei, distrusts the Horde and doubts blood elven capabilities.

Elisande (the penultimate boss of the Nighthold) makes an appearance during Gates of the Nighthold where she discredits all of the elven races. Her quotes are along these lines:

  • Kaldorei? You disgrace a glorious past, hiding in trees and cloaking yourselves in false piety. You have grown as savage as the trolls that skulk about your forests.
  • Quel'dorei? You are peasants playing at nobility, all too willing to mingle with lesser races that dilute your bloodline. You are unworthy of the name high elves.
  • Sin'dorei? Of all the elves, I thought you might understand the choice I made to save my people. Instead, you ally with misfits and monsters.

"Each of you has debased your proud lineage. Each of you has forgotten the ancient power that is our birthright. But Suramar remembers! We are the Nightborne, last of the true elves. The rest of you are hollow echoes of our greatness."

Elisande traps everyone in a time barrier. You as a player literally save Khadgar from getting caught and later on, depending on your faction you alongside Khadgar save:

  • Tyrande as an Alliance player.
  • Liadrin as a Horde player.

It's a pity Blizzard discredits fate of a major lore character to player's faction choice. You don't learn what happens with the opposing faction's Hero.

The fate of Vereesa and the elven forces remains unknown.

The quest line ends with Khadgar and Thalyssra waiting outside the Nighthold entrance. Khadgar orders you to gather a group of elite champions and return when Nighthold opens, knowingly announcing that "The Withered won't last long in there."

Is it an actual choice though? It reads like it's one of those things where "adventurers" save both and you just see which side your faction represents, no?

You don't decide. You just basically don't know what happens with the opposing's faction. I've edited the part for clarity.

Same here, though I don't mind too much. At first I hated Suramar quite a bit but I'm slowly but surely growing more attached to it. If anything it makes the 3-daily mana grind for the zombie training more bearable.

Alright, thanks! I wasn't sure, Blizzard's been getting a little looser with canon between the Alliance/Horde commander in WoD and now all the artifact wielders/order hall leaders, so it could well have been a choice haha.

EXALTED WAS ONLY A SETBACK

They need to increase the amount of reputation you get. Grinding rep to exalted is a pain, especially if you play more than one character. Getting exalted with the Nightfallen, who provide the least amount of rep for their quests compared to other factions, is ridiculous. Yeah let's gate quests behind something that takes forever and a day to complete. Makes no sense.

As long as you consistently push for the Nightfallen reward from the Kirin Tor quest too, I've found it OK, at least for my alts. I've got 2 at exalted, 3 at revered 14k+. I'm just kind of chugging along, but even with 1 at exalted, I'll be happy to just play through the questline.

But isn't the Kirin Tor a matter of RNG as far as getting that emissary?

I hope they implement something like medals of commendation or whatever those were in MOP. I have 6 110's right now, and of course I'm the exception because I play so many toons, but I also want to level multiple professions as well and the three star recipes are gated by exalted which only adds insult to injury.

If they would extend rep rewards to other parts of the game like dungeons or raids it would at least create some alternatives to questing.

The zone is beautiful and I've enjoyed every part of it except some really annoying quests like the one where you need to align the lasers. That quest was literally driving me crazy. At the end of the day, I don't want to think, I just want to bash keys and kill stuff. First time doing the quest, I was randomly clicking the stuff like a monkey, hoping to finish it :D oh and there's MasqueradeMasquerade. Am I the only one who totally hates Suramar, because of that?

It is, yeah, but it's a nice chunk of 750 reputation every so often!

      Four new World Bosses are added in Patch 7.2. Whereas no loot information is available yet, here are their Encounter Journal entries with abilities and tips. Apocron is the latest boss that was added to the 7.2 crew and he can be tested out on PTR.
      Apocron
      Built by the Legion thousands of years ago, Apocron has heralded the end for countless civilizations. With each world conquered, the reaver's power grows, ensuring the next realm it encounters will be put to flame.

      The pit lord Brutallus is a veteran of many battles, including the most recent battle at the Sunwell. His tactics are rarely sophisticated, often relying on pure force to dominate enemy armies.

      Changes to Tier 20 Arcane Mage & Assassination Rogue set bonuses are coming, developers discuss possible changes to Mistweaver Monks, Shaman class mount will switch tints between specs and the crafting reagents for Paladin & Warlock class mounts will be re-evaluated in a future 7.2 build.
      Arcane Mage Tier 20 2P Set Bonus
      Item - Mage T20 Arcane 2P Bonus will be redesigned to work with other spell than Greater Invisibility to avoid spamming utility buttons for a DPS increase.
      Sigma (Source)
      We're considering making the set bonus work with some spell other than Greater Invisibility, to avoid overloading a utility button with a rotational DPS benefit. Mistweaver Monks & Mythic Raiding
      The MW community feels their spots in Mythic raids are jeopardized and progression hampers their class. No immediate changes are planned, but Sigma drafted possible future changes.
      Sigma (Source)
      Much like the Disc post in the other thread, Mistweaver is more in a state of thinking ahead for possible refinements, but no immediate shake-ups. This is preliminary, but a possible direction is that some things could be smoothed out by reducing the emphasis on Essence Font. That could help with, for example, drawing out more of a regular ongoing decision between Enveloping Mist, Vivify, and Effuse, rather than having that so often pushed out by Essence Font. Also, making the value of mastery more stable, and reducing the importance of churning as much mana into Essence Fonts as possible. For fair warning, a cooldown on EF is not out of the question after seeing how it's played out, but that would come alongside seeing how other heals might have to be strengthened.

      Rising Thunder has wound up underperforming which we would likely look at at the same time. It would likely be helped regardless by changes that made it easier to spend mana and GCDs on Rising Sun Kick, without always taking away from something like an Essence Font. Paladin & Warlock Class Mounts Requirements
      Both classes need expensive materials to craft their class mounts. Requirements will be re-examined soon.
      Muffinus (Source)
      Why do only the Warlock and Paladin class mount quests require obscenely expensive mats? Its a bit ridiculous we alone have to spend tons of gold to get our mounts and no other classes do.
      I posted this in the main thread, but cross-posting it here for visibility - we'll be re-examining the rare material requirement for the Paladin and Warlock class mounts, we don't want the gate for these to be an expensive tradeskill material. 
      Tier 20 Assassination Rogue 2P Set Bonus
      Item - Rogue T20 Assassination 2P Bonus Item - Rogue T20 Assassination 4P Bonus The bonus to Garrote would only make sense while picking Exsanguinate or in a situation where you keep up two Garrotes. It's needless to say that after multiple Ruptures are up, Garrote may not be worth using.
      Sigma (Source)
      The 2-piece will get some single-target benefit. That said, part of the benefit of the bonus is the improved multi-target capability that Garrote has with a shorter cooldown. Shaman Class Mount Adjustments
      Currently, Enhancement Shamans have a fiery appearance for their class mount (Farseer's Raging Tempest), which will be fixed in a future update. The spec will switch mount tints with Elemental.
      Muffinus (Source)
       In the next PTR build, elemental will be fiery, and enhancement will be stormy.

      We are also making changes to the resto version to make it more watery, and remove the strobe effects.

      The second installment of the popular series is only a month away. The publisher, Dark Horse, has released a preview of this new book.
      A year ago, the first volume of World of Warcraft: Chronicle brought us some amazing artwork and the extremely interesting story of the early days of Azeroth - the highlight being the existence of the void lords.

      In the second volume, we will learn more about the world of Draenor from its vibrant beginning to its final doom of becoming what we know today as Outland. In-between, we find chapters about the First and the Second War.
      IGN has an exclusive preview of a few pages and artwork images from World of Warcraft: Chronicle vol.2, which you can also download from here.
