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.

Sad Panda.  I'm not even exalted but oh well.  I have been enjoying the city a chunk.

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!

      Method's WF and Limit's W2nd G'huun Kill Videos
      Uldir Race Day 9: Two 8/8s, Wipe Counts, Nerdscreams and More
      Congratulation Tweets, Hall of Fame for Method's WF
      Method Gets the G'huun World First! - Kill video from the stream, wipecount and more.
      Uldir Race Day 8: 4.1% G'huun Lives to the Second Week - Method get the boss down to 4.1%, Limit may have extended their lockout and we get World First and second Mythrax kill videos.
      Uldir Race Day 7: G'huun Down to 12% and Nerfed - A 12% try from Method and a nerf to the big worm.
      Uldir Race Day 6: Method Catch Up, Mythrax Video - Method and Exorsus catch up and we get a Mythrax kill video.
      Uldir Race Day 5: Limit World First 7/8 - Limit head to the top and take a strong lead with their Mythrax the Unraveler World FIrst.
      Uldir Race Day 4: Zul Down, 6/8 by EU and US - Method get the World First on Zul, Reborn and Limit catch up to them quickly.
      Uldir WF Race Day 3: US 5/8, Devourer Down - Limit grab the World First after some more hotfix nerfs to Fetid Devourer.
      Uldir Mythic WF Race Day 2: Fetid Devourer Endboss - EU guilds catch up but no one can get past the 5th boss, Fetid Devourer and 8 guilds are stuck at 4/8.  Uldir Mythic WF Race Day 1: 4 Bosses Down - Big Dumb Guild and Limit get 4 bosses down before EU servers come up, Blizzard nerfs Fetid Devourer and we get to see three WF kill videos. ____________________________________________________________________
      The gates of Mythic Uldir have opened and the US and OC servers are coming up after maintenance. Now it remains to be seen who will go in early and grab those World Firsts before the EU an Asian guilds have had a chance to enter the first raid of Battle for Azeroth. As always, we'll have summary posts for each day early in the EU morning.
      Of the possible contenders on the US/OC scene we have Wildcard Gaming, formerly Easy, who have already taken a WF in Heroic, with their G'huun kill, and seem eager to get their new name heard, so they might just be the leading US guild. On the other hand, Limit has been a dominant presence in the US/OC scene for a long time now, grabbing most WFs and being the only real competition to the EU and Asian guilds in the endgame. We also have SNF and Big Dumb Guild who have gotten some World Firsts in the past, and have been known to raid early, so the competition for those first few kills should be high. Blood Legion also seem to have returned after a long hiatus, as they will be raiding "semi-competitively" in BfA, but it remains to be seen what exactly that means.
      As always, we'll be using Method's raid progress coverage for our own summaries and you can head on over to their site to follow the race live, both today with the usual updates and tomorrow with the guild itself streaming the race live. For other streams of the progress race, head on over to twitch's WoW page and you'll be sure to find tons of players showing off their journey through Uldir.
      We'll also be using this article as a hub for all the race summary posts.

      The race is about to begin and you can check out all of our coverage right here.

      Just when you thought they were gone, the hotfixes make their comeback! Today we get some Tol Dagor nerfs, some fixes and improvements for Island Expeditions, including some achievements now being account-wide and a brand new World Quest to win one! There's also the usual PvP and quest fixes, as well as another Heart of Azeroth tweak.
      September 21 (source)
      Dungeons and Raids
      Tol Dagor Overseer Korgus’ Incendiary Rounds’ damage and Blast Rounds’ pushback decreased by 25%. Island Expeditions
      A new world quest has been added to win one Island Expedition. Click on the map and set sail for adventure! Some Island Expedition achievements have been made account-wide. Resolved additional issues that could prevent players from gaining progress in Island Expeditions for the weekly quest “Azerite for the Horde / Azerite for the Alliance”. Items
      Fixed bugs that were preventing Truffles in Stormsong Valley from behaving as expected. Heart of Azeroth Ablative Shielding is no longer reduced by Stagger. Player versus Player
      The Weekly Quest "Something Different" can now be completed by participating in Shado-pan Showdown, as intended. “Something Different” now grants a 340 item level Dread Gladiator piece of gear from the Brawl Footlocker. Players who have already turned in “Something Different” this week can now complete it a second time. World Quests
      Fixed an issue where the "Pest Problem" did not count towards the Storm's Wake emissary. There are now a greater number of Ancient Texts that are “Past Due”. Previous Hotfixes

      A lot of Azerite trait talk today as Blizzard have announced a second round of tuning, focusing on tanks and healers, coming with the next reset. We also got a blue post commenting on the imbalance in the traits and the Mythic+ problem with Azerite armor not being available.

      There's also some PvP class tuning coming next week which you can check out here.
      Trait Tuning (source)
      With scheduled maintenance next week, we intend to make some targeted adjustments to Azerite Traits for tanks and healers. Here's what that currently looks like:
      Blessed Sanctuary bonus increased by 10%. Burst of Life healing increased by 20%. Craggy Bark bonus increased by 15%. Dauntless Divinity block increased by 20%. Depth of the Shadows healing increased by 20%. Ephemeral Recovery mana increased by 15%. Gory Regeneration healing increase increased by 15%. Judicious Defense absorption increased by 10%. Masterful Instincts bonuses increased by 10%. Permeating Glow bonus increased by 15%. Reinforced Plating Strength increased by 10%. Revel in Pain absorption increased by 20%. Savior trigger threshold increased to 50% health (was 35%). Soothing Waters healing increased by 10%.
      You'll see the final adjustments in our hotfixes update post on Tuesday.
       
      Trait imbalance and M+ (source)
      Couple things:
      We agree that the trait imbalance is a real problem right now. We made a bunch of tuning adjustments last week, and have more planned for the very near future (primarily focused on buffing underperforming traits). We see this as the source of most of the frustrations with the system; if the delta between your best and worst traits wasn't so big, it'd be less frustrating when a piece of Azerite armor doesn't have your best trait on it.
      We also agree that the Mythic+ Azerite Armor situation isn't ideal. However, we need to be careful with how we award Azerite Armor through M+. Right now, easier access to Azerite Armor is one of the main advantages that raiding has over gearing exclusively through Mythic+, and we want to keep some additional benefit there as compensation for the extra effort and coordination needed to organize a raid team. That's is why we're hesitant to do something like add a guaranteed piece of Azerite Armor to the weekly chest - it'd be too lucrative.
      But like I said, we do agree that the current setup can be frustrating. We're looking for better options.
