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?

Spoiler above!

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!

      People jumping into a well from a very long way away. Because.
      Back in my day™ all we did was idle on the old Orgrimmar bank roof all day and it was totally exciting. This newfangled Legion expansion is taking everything to the extreme, including idling in the city - and this proves it! The latest reddit activity seems to be jumping from quite a long way a way straight into the sewer portal well for... reasons, and there have been quite a few damn impressive holes in one. Super holes in one you might say. Usually with these you slowly build up to the amazing one, but the amazing one is just too amazing to wait, so let's just begin at the top with the clear winner, with an outside the green shot that will haunt you (source):
      Then we have some Monk action (source):
      Unfortunately can't embed this one so you'll have to go through the agony of having to actually click it! (Source)
      The Warrior one has a plot twist at the end: he DIDN'T end up in Azsuna! (Source)
      The druid version seems a little boring, but impressive nonetheless (source):
      Then we have a ground level shot (source):

      And finally, I know I said the best one was at the beginning, but I lied. Here's the clearly most impressive super hole in one (source):

      Yesterday, I wrote about updates to the Shoe Shine Kit toy and how its tracking quest got stealth fixed in the latest 7.2.5 PTR build.
      The toy was unavailable until now, because Blizzard simply forgot to fix it and the chest could not be opened. 
      Sheddle Glossgleam leaves the toy store (2nd floor of Photonic Playground - 44, 47) at 12 AM (PST) / 3 AM (EST) realm time and goes drinking in Legendermain Lounge. During his absence, a chest spawns that contains the toy - Shoe Shine Kit. Only one person may loot it, because it will disappear afterwards. The toy makes shoes sparkle. There are still items in the game that haven't been discovered yet, such as the Fishing Artifact appearance The Broken Hook and more.

      In addition to pets coming with the Deadmines Pet Battle Dungeon, the latest 7.2.5 PTR build added two pets that drop from the Time-Lost Wallet inside the Deaths of Chromie Scenario and our friends over at WarcraftPets seem to have discovered a new fairie dragon pet possibly from Argus.
      Ageless Bronze Drake (Ageless Bronze Drake)
      The pet is a miniature version of the Reins of the Bronze Drake mount and has a unique Rewind Time ability "This particular drake has oddly retained its age throughout its travels, but its size has certainly changed."
      Bronze Proto-Whelp (Bronze Proto-Whelp)
      The pet's a miniature version of the Reins of the Time-Lost Proto-Drake (Storm Peaks) mount and comes with the an ability to bend time "The Bronze Proto-Whelps have been discovered only in the most peculiar of timelines."
      Sun Darter Hatchling - Faerie Dragon Pet
      Quintessence from WarcraftPets suggests this pet may be from Argus as noted by its description. If you try to paste the item in-game (Patch 7.2), it seems to coincide with a mount tagged named as "REUSE", however 7.2.5 Mount Journal lists the pet and so does the in-game tooltip.

      Sun Darter Hatchling drops from Oddly-Colored Egg (Source N/A) "This unique species of faerie dragon is not usually found on Azeroth."

      Nether Disruptor is again up in both regions and with Seal Your Fate, you can get a free Seal of Broken Fate each day the Nether Disruptor is active.
      The good news is that these bonus seals go beyong the normal 3 limit. All you need to do is accept the quest Fate Sealed from Maggie "Slither" Masterson (coords: 41.19 // 64.46).
      World Boss Apocron

      The permanent Nether Disruptor perk (Epic Hunter) always unlocks a Broken Shore World Boss that drops item level 900 loot and this time, it's Apocron. Below is the loot he drops.

      Four new bosses were added to the Broken Shore. Base item level of their loot is 890+. Old world bosses remain untouched with 860+ loot. The bosses will spawn when the Nether Disruptor's active.

      Below you can find loot from the new world bosses. We don't know yet if they share respawn timers with existing world bosses.
