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?

I doubt it, since they are quest rewards.

      Armies of Legionfall is a new faction introduced in Patch 7.2. When you log in once Patch 7.2 goes live, Khadgar will be waiting for you to in Dalaran and he will lead the assault on the Broken Shore. The scenario is an introduction to Armies of Legionfall faction and completing it unlocks new World Quests and other quests that unlock new Artifact traits and more.
      In our earlier preview, we've taken a closer loot at it, but since there were so many screenshots, we've made a video. Keep in mind that reaching Exalted with Armies of Legionfall is required to unlock account-wide Legion flying (Legionfall Commander).
      The video below contains spoilers, proceed at your own risk!

      Our preview of Class Mounts continues with the Priest class. The mount is rewarded upon completing The Sunken Vault.
       High Priest's Lightsworn Seaker has three color tints, white for Discipline, gold for Holy and purple for Shadow.
      The Priest is wearing Normal difficulty Tier 20 Set armor. All Tomb of Sargeras sets are heavily inspired by existing Tier 6 Sets with the exception of Death Knights, Demon Hunters and Monks.

      Ana-Mouz is back in Suramar once again, joining the normal weekly world boss Withered J'im to offer us some nice loot. She's up on both EU and US servers and it's been a while since we've seen her, so here's the location in case you forgot!

      And here's her loot, including the Vantus Rune for Tichondrius:
      Imp Mother's Loincloth Demonic Birthstone Ring Low-Cut Chestplate Skimpy Demonleather Tunic Sheer Felthreaded Robe Crop Top Chain Hauberk Imp-Eye Diamond Vantus Rune Technique: Tichondrius

      My game time expired about 1-1,5 months before patch 7.1.5 appeared in wow.
      I focus only on pvp and I play shaman ele. Is it worth to come back to wow? Can you guys tell in what condition pvp is right now (2s,3s,bg's / wpvp)? Comments on blizzard forum don't encourage me to return.

       Abyss Worm is the first mount from Tomb of Sargeras and according to the Mounts tab, it will drop from either Harjatan or Mistress Sassz'ine.
      We expect more mounts to be added soon, because Glory of the Tomb Raider currently offers no mount reward.
