Patch 7.1: Suramar Campaign Quests

Recommended Posts

K7SEw65.jpg

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!

      It seems we're getting a whole lot of Alterac Valley soon, as Classic is getting the 1.12 version in one of the latter content releases and we're getting the special 15th Anniversary edition on live servers in Patch 8.2.5 during the event! Today at midnight CEST there's another Play with the Blues event on the 8.2.5 PTR gathering all Valley enthusiasts and all you have to do is hop on to the PTR and use the Group Finder to jump in!

      You can get the high-rez versions of the two original mounts from the event, which you can check out here as well.
      Play with the Blues (source)
      Tomorrow 12:00 AM CEST, please join us on the 8.2.5 PTR for an old school Alterac Valley Play with the Blues.
      Starting promptly at 3:00 p.m. PDT, Blizzard employees will be testing our 15th Anniversary rendition of AV on the PTR, and you can join us for some strife in the Field of Strife.
      Please log into the PTR by that time and then open your Group Finder (default hotkey: i) and switch to the Player vs. Player tab. You’ll see Alterac Valley waiting for you to join.
      Afterward, please return to this thread with your feedback.
      Thank you!

      The news image above is fan art created by Dogslug. You can find more of his work here.
      Blizzard mentioned multiple times that they would add Allied Races whenever they fit the story. The Horde's hottest candidates are currently the Vulpera of Vol'dun, even though their story doesn't make a whole lot of sense right now. Recent rumors suggest that Gilgoblins could be in the final pair of Horde Allied Races too.
      The Vulpera currently have too many unique animations, and they are a community-favorite. Pretty much every Horde player wants them to become playable. They're coming, and it's just a matter of when. We think the first set of Allied Races will be introduced in Patch 8.2.5 with the second one coming in Patch 8.3.5. Based on datamining, the Vulpera should be live on or before September 20th. You can find all their customization options here.

      On the other side of the spectrum, the Alliance will get Mechagnomes led by Prince Erazmin of Mechagon, but it's still not clear what the second race will be.

      Lightforged Forsaken led by Calia Menethil are a possibility based on the Before the Storm novel and Calia also received a new model in the initial Patch 8.2.5 build.
      Next up are Gilgoblins! We encounter them in zones like Vashj'ir and Nazjatar in Patch 8.2. They are a species of aquatic goblins created by Hobart Grapplehammer. Gilgoblins are very similar to traditional Goblins. They have various tattoos and fins on their arms to help them swim.

      Gilgoblins are currently not included in the game files as playable races as opposed to Mechagnomes and the Vulpera. They only exist as creatures.

      The female model has more customization options compared to the male model. Would you like to see them become playable in the future?

      We know that Blizzard wants to add more customization options to World of Warcraft, and a recent leak suggests that all Allied Races will become customization options in Patch 9.0 except for the Nightborne and the Vulpera. Let's see what the first set of Allied Races is going to be now that Patch 8.2 should hit Public Test Realms reasonably soon!
      TL;DR
      The first set of Allied Races (Mechagnomes/Vulpera) coming in Patch 8.2.5 on or before September 20th. The final set of Allied Races will include Gilgoblins and Lightforged Forsaken (based on the Before the Storm novel) in Patch 8.3.5. We know that Mechagnomes and the Vulpera are coming, but what about the second set of Allied Races?

One more thing: the weather forecast calls for a bit of fog of war. We hope you're prepared for the weather.

      Today's hotfixes come with a lot of nerfs to Queen Azshara. Vitality Conduit now correctly transfers health from a target with absorb shields, and more.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Dungeons and Raids
      Azshara’s Eternal Palace Queen Azshara When either Aethenel or Cyranus is slain on Normal, Heroic, or Mythic difficulty, there is now a 3-second delay before the other one gains the Torment buff. Azshara's Indomitable is now summoned 10 seconds later than previously observed on Mythic difficulty. Tidemistresses have 5% less health on Mythic difficulty. Fixed an issue where casting either Moonfire or Regrowth twice in a row while affected by Repeat Performance was not triggering the silence. Fixed a bug on Mythic difficulty where the damage effect from Deferred Sentence could trigger the healing reduction from Obey or Suffer right as the decrees transitioned between each other. Siege of Boralus  Corrected an issue where players’ pets were unable to attack the tentacles during the Viq’Goth encounter. Items
      Heart of Azeroth Vitality Conduit (Essence) correctly transfers health from a target with absorb shields on them. Learning new ranks of Conflict and Strife (Essence) should now properly grant achievements such as Power Up.

      Artifact Knowledge will continue to increase each week until the week of October 1, according to Blizzard, despite the fact that in previous Seasons, it ended around the twelve-week mark.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Is this being cut off soon? Or are you leaving it on indefinitely?
      It’s been 8 weeks now, and 8.2 kicked off with 4 weeks of AK already calculated into the game, so in theory, we’ve had 12 weeks of AK at this point. AK ended around the 12-week mark in the prior seasons.
      This is an inquiry, I’m not asking that it be cut off. I think they should leave it on, but that wouldn’t fit the prior seasons.
      No to both questions. 🙂
      As things currently stand, Artifact Knowledge will continue to increase each week until the week of October 1.
