wow Illidan's Story Update & UH Death Knight Changes

7 posts in this topic


New quests related to Illidan's fate have been added and Unholy Death Knights are getting a small buff in the next PTR Build.

Illidan's Story Update

Patch 7.1 added new quests to Illidan's story. Players that have been collecting Lingering Soul Fragments to finish Soul Prism of the Illidari will be awarded item level 870 boots or belt.

The story continues with two new quests.

Both quests feature major spoilers related to Illidan's story, so proceed at own caution.


The Once and Future Lord of Shadows

Quest ObjectiveDefeat Helya in the Trials of Valor raid and then use the Soul Prism of the Illidari to claim Illidan's Soul.

Quest Description: While tracking the master's physical body proved challenging, we were able to locate it in the Nighthold of Suramar. Our intelligence reports that Gul'dan is making final preparations to the Nightwell in order to use its power to usher the soul of Sargeras into Illidan's body.

The only way to stop that from happening is to put Illidan's own immortal soul back.

Take the Soul Prism of the Illidari and venture to Helheim. Defeat Helya and use the prism on Illidan's soul! Return it to Light's Heart.

The Nighthold

Quest Objective: Deliver Light's Heart to Khadgar at the Violet Citadel in Dalaran.

Quest Description: Illidan's soul rests safely within Light's Heart. Take this vessel and deliver it to Khadgar with the following instructions:

When Gul'dan attempts to tear the sky asunder and bring the dark titan into our world, call forth the power of this vessel and release Illidan's soul into his body.

Go now, <name>. We do not have much time. The dark ritual will begin soon.

Unholy Death Knights

A small buff is coming to Unholy Death Knights in a future PTR build. The newest build should also feature a major rework of many Legendary items.

Quick note on a small upcoming change: in the next PTR build, ApocalypseApocalypse will burst up to 6 Festering WoundFestering Wounds (instead of 8). However, the damage of the summoned ghouls will be increased by 33% (which will not be obvious from data), keeping the total the same. This is also a large buff to the damage of Army of the DeadArmy of the Dead. Finally, in a separate change, the damage of the Summon Gargoylesummmoned Gargoyle and Val'kyr (Dark ArbiterDark Arbiter) will be increased.

However, will ApocalypseApocalypse continue to burst 4 wounds in pvp?

      Blizzard revealed Prestige rewards for the upcoming Legion PvP Season 4.

      In World of Warcraft: Legion, players can earn new rewards in PvP through the updated Honor system. At Honor level 50, a new path of advancement opens in which players begin earning Prestige levels. These Prestige levels increase with every 50 Honor levels and provide new rewards for each level gained.
      Prestige rewards include pets, toys, titles, and even mounts—we’ve put together a handy list of all of them below.
      Prestige 1: Pet: Alliance Enthusiast or Horde Fanatic Prestige 2: Artifact: New Appearance Prestige 3: Toy: Honorable Pennant Prestige 4: Mount: Prestigious Bronze Courser Prestige 5: Title: The Honorable Prestige 6: Artifact: New Color Prestige 7: Pet: Dutiful Squire or Dutiful Gruntling Prestige 8: Toy: Prestigious Pennant Prestige 9: Mount: Prestigious Ivory Courser Prestige 10: Title: The Prestigious Prestige 11 Artifact: New Color Prestige 12: Toy: Elite Pennant Prestige 13: Mount: Prestigious Azure Courser Prestige 14: Title: The Unrelenting
      Honorable Pennant Toy

      Prestigious Bronze Courser Mount

      Alliance Enthusiast and Horde Fanatic Pet
      Once Legion PvP Season 4 Begins, you’ll be able to earn the following additional Prestige rewards:
      Prestige 15: Artifact: New Color Prestige 16: Toy: Esteemed Pennant Prestige 17: Mount: Prestigious Forest Courser Prestige 18: Title: The Unstoppable Force So storm the Battlegrounds and Arenas, gladiators. Glory—and glorious plunder—await!

      Following Blizzard's announcement that Destiny 2 would be exclusively available via the Blizzard app, caused prices of WoW Tokens to reach an all-time high in both regions.
      The last time we witnessed WoW Token prices spiking was when Blizzard launched the WoW Token to Balance exchange.
      Token prices are slowly going down, but in Europe they spiked at 251,000 Gold for a single token.

      North America
      America didn't see such a dramatic increase. Just a little above 140K Gold for one token.

      To stay up to date with latest prices, don't forget to follow WoWTokenNA for North America or WoWTokenEU for Europe.
