Illidan Quest NOT Linked to Legendary Upgrades

Well, we've finally received word from Blizzard on the recent rumor on whether the Illidan quest chain (with its 80 Soul Fragments and all) is related to the legendary upgrade mechanic coming in 7.1.5 and Nighthold, and it was only a rumor after all!

As mentioned, it isn't clear how this all got started, but it seems that the quest being missing from the PTR was enough to trigger some speculation and the Illidan chain connection somehow became the front-runner in the rumor olympics.

Hopefully not too many players frantically did the quest line on many characters due to the rumor, but hey, at least there's some 870+ loot at the end of it if you did.

I'm kinda glad the rumor got started. I thought that little quest line was just going to drag me through tons of annoying little "go here and talk to naaru" quests. Didn't realise there was this big quest with a reward at the end.

Even if the Legendary upgrade isn't tied to this quest, it still gives me something to do.

Please don't say "it's not clear how this all got started". It all started with this huge thread on mmo-c which was reposted everywhere after that - on the official forums (and also became a big thread), then  you posted it on icy-veins too and ofcourse, it was posted on every place wow-related on the internet: other websites, Reddit, social media, youtube channels and so on. Blizz didn't bothered to reply until now, sadly. So really, how this all got started? The answer is simple, the people responsible for "how it all got started" are the people who spread the unverified/false rumors in the first place.

I meant it as it's not clear who got the idea to randomly choose the Illidan quest line as being connected to the legendary thing. It seems just random. But you are right about other sites and us reporting on it making it bigger than it was,. As for me I was basically posting about the discussion that existed, which was already getting traction in the community at the time (a lot of tweets asking about it etc). I was aware there were no firm links to prove there was a connection (but it may not have come across as such in the article and people usually tend to either just read headlines or glance over an article's text, so I take some responsibility for it as well).

I kinda saw it as one of those "even if this isn't true we should say how shit it is JUST IN CASE it might be" things.

Even though I am almost done with this, I am glad for others that they don't have to grind through this for the upgrade.  The less grinding the better.

Speaking of Legendaries though, I hope we can get some kind of catch-up for the equip limit at some point.

I'm just getting the ability to wear two in a week, it'll be a pretty painful wait for any newer 110s at this point.

Once they start adding more things that let you wear more legendaries at once, or maybe if they increased the baseline limit from 1 to 2 or something, that may help. Or at least lowering the time it takes for order hall advancements to complete :p

You mean the legendary upgrade? It'll just be gathering items from Nighthold and when you have enough you complete the quest and get the item that can upgrade.

Actually, Blizz said yesterday that they will be reducing order hall research duration in 7.1.5. They didn't say by how much, but presumably it'll be at least half.

I wouldn't be able to tell the exact time, but I had roughly 5 or 6 days left on my Legends of the Wild and it was completed when I logged on just now. :p

It's truly amazing how quickly people take a tiny rumour and turn it into something that causes so much trouble!

      Mythrax the Unraveler is the penultimate boss of Uldir and here's a video preview of the encounter by FatbossTV.
      Mythrax the Unraveler
      While questing in Vol'dun, Horde players learn that Sethrak successfully summoned Mythrax to the world. The Horde story in Zandalar culminates in the Zandalar Forever Scenario, where G'huun orders Zul to help him shatter his final seal with the aid of Mythrax.
      Overview
      Mythrax the Unraveler, Bringer of Oblivion, Slayer of Sethraliss: with his missions complete, he returns to his master's side to await further instruction.
      Mythrax's abilities will trigger Annihilation, reducing players' maximum health. When Annihilation triggers, there is a chance that an Existence Fragment will spawn, allowing the player or her allies to regain that previously lost maximum health.
       Damage Dealers
      Move away from your allies when affected by Imminent Ruin. Avoid having multiple players charmed by the same Oblivion Sphere.  Healers
      Move away from your allies when affected by Imminent Ruin. Breaking multiple targets out of Oblivion Sphere will trigger heavy damage to all players. Avoid having multiple players charmed by the same Oblivion Sphere.  Tanks
      Avoid taking damage from Essence Shear when you are already affected by Essence Shear. Be mindful of your survivability as you gain stacks of Annihilation. Uldir Boss Previews by FatbossTV

      Battle for Azeroth has two neutral factions (Champions of Azeroth and Tortollan Seekers). There's a total of eight faction-specific reputations (four per faction // Alliance & Horde). Reputation Paragon mounts do not exist in Battle for Azeroth. All mounts are gated behind Exalted reputation standing with the new factions.

The initial gearing via factions is very similar to Legion, but in Battle for Azeroth, you will get Azerite gear (Helm, Shoulder, Chest pieces) with special Azerite traits. Items at Honored are of item level 325 (mostly cloaks). Items at Revered are of item level 340. Gear at Exalted is of item level 355. Special contracts allow you to gain reputation with a faction every time you complete a world quest on Kul Tiras and Zandalar (Contract: Tortollan Seekers).

      In order to complete Battle for Azeroth Pathfinder, Part One, the Alliance must earn Revered with all Kul Tiran factions (Kul Tiras Diplomat), whereas the Horde must earn Revered with the four factions of Zandalar (Zandalar Diplomat). More details about how to unlock flying in Battle for Azeroth can be found here.

      Blizzard decided not to remove the Keystone Master Artifact appearance in Battle for Azeroth.
      In order to unlock the Artifact appearance from Keystone Master, you must complete a Level 15 or higher Mythic dungeon within the time limit. Initially, they wanted to remove the achievement come BfA, but decided to keep it. If you finish a Level 15+ or higher within the time limit at level 120 in Battle for Azeroth, you will automatically unlock your Legion's Artifact appearance. The only achievement that will be unobtainable with Battle for Azeroth is A Challenging Look (Mage Tower base appearance).
      Blizzard (Source)
      As testing continues in the Battle for Azeroth Beta, and we specifically consider the transition from Legion to BFA, we’ve decided to make the existing Keystone Master, achievement permanent. There will not be a new achievement for completing a Mythic 15 or higher dungeon in the new expansion.

      The artifact appearance associated with Keystone Master, will still be available in Battle For Azeroth. Players can earn the achievement in Legion through August 13, or players can complete a Mythic 15 BFA dungeon at level 120, once Mythic Keystone difficulty opens a few weeks after the launch of Battle For Azeroth.

      This means that the only artifact appearance that will become unobtainable with Battle For Azeroth is the Mage Tower base appearance.

      As always, thank you for your feedback!
