Patch 7.2: Demon Assaults: Highmountain

Recommended Posts


Demon Assaults are currently tested on PTRs. Every zone has six assaults up when under attack by the Legion. Daily quests are replaced with assaults and completing 6 assaults will make you enter a scenario to repel Legion from a specific zone. We've already looked at updates to World Quests and assaults here. That only included limited information and now that the assault quest doesn't reset on disconnect, we can have a more detailed look at the zones. We'll start with Highmountain.

Assault on Highmountain is auto-accepted when you zone in to Highmountain that's under attack. Complete 6 assaults and return back to Thunder Totem. It doesn't end here though. After you complete the initial quest, you'll get Holding Our Ground.


Battle for Highmountain is the last quest that makes you enter a scenario with 10 stages.



During the first stage, you'll be securing the upper portion of Thunder Totem.


During the second stage, you'll meet up with Mayla Highmountain and you need to repel two demon waves, guards will assist you.


After dealing with the waves, a demon elite Fel Champion Gargath appears and killing him triggers stage 5.


Next stage is about escorting Mayla and reaching the ship. If you die during this stage, it will complete automatically (probably a bug). The point is to escort her to where war eagles are so that you can mount them and  reach the Legion ship in the sky.


A closer look at the Legion ship above Thunder Totem (Highmountain).


There's a camp with eagles just outside Thunder Totem with eagles that help you reach the ship.


Stage 7 begins once you're on the ship. The objective is to free 5 caged Rivermane Tauren.


In stage 8 you will be setting 5 explosives at key positions.


In stage 9 of the scenario, you'll finally confront Fel Commander Erixtol. He has a root and casts Rain of Fire quite often.


The final stage ends when you leave the ship and mount the eagles.

      Due to consistent, extended queue times, Blizzard enabled free character moves for players who have characters on high population realms.
      If the service is available on your realm, you can access it in the Services section of the Shop on your char selection screen for that realm. You won't be able to select a destination realm that also has a high population.
      With the launch of Shadowlands, great numbers of players have left Azeroth for the afterlife, dramatically increasing player populations on every realm. For a small number of realms, demand has been overwhelming, and we’ve been working around the clock to address issues on those realms and make the game available to the maximum number of players.
      Today, we’ve enabled the Free Character Transfer service for players who have characters on high population realms that are experiencing consistent, extended queues. If this service is available on your realm, you’ll access it in the Services section of the Shop on your character selection screen for that realm.
      Please note:
      You cannot select a destination realm that also has a high population. Realm to realm character transfers take time to complete, and the duration is higher when more players are using the service. You cannot log in to your character until the migration has completed. You cannot cancel a migration in progress. Blizzard Customer Support cannot cancel a migration or speed up the migration process. Character migrations are irreversible. The free service may be disabled at any time, as necessary. We strongly suggest that any players planning to use a Free Character Transfer do so as soon as possible.
      Thank you very much!

      Players keep discovering fun toys scattered across the Shadowlands, and it turns out you can have your very own shoulder demon/angel, and they interact with each other.
      Bondable Sinstone comes from the Taskmaster's Trove in Revendreth. It summons a demon named Sinny that gives you questionable advice. You can get Bondable Val'kyr Diadem from the Gift of Chyrus in Bastion. The toy summons a Val'kyr called Angelis. You can have Angelis and Sinny up simultaneously, and they have some fun interactions too.

      We're looking at the potential of a fun new item from Engineering called Momentum Redistributor Boots.
      The boots redistribute a significant portion of your fall damage into nearby enemies,  so if you land properly, you will be able to kill other players. The item is on a 3-minute cooldown.

      Here are some useful tips if you are leveling alts through the Threads of Fate system.
      The Threads of Fate system allows you to ignore the main story and level up your character by doing various objectives and completing world quests.
      You should first visit every area to accept all campaign quests if you plan on leveling through spamming dungeons.

      Each dungeon gives you 10% toward the progress bar.
      You should also focus on progressing through the quests simultaneously, not one by one, if you are mainly leveling through dungeons. 
      Reddit user Kerotos summarized how much XP you're going to get via dungeons.
      Reddit user Lucasion pointed out that Threads of Fate is available for alts to switch to at any time until your character hits 60, meaning at any point, you can choose to skip the rest of the story. However, if you hit 60 while doing the story, the Fatescriber no longer gives you the option to swap to the Threads of Fate system, so your alt becomes locked into finishing the story.
      If you are leveling an alt through the storyline, make sure you return to Oribos and swap to the Threads of Fate BEFORE hitting level 60!
      Remember that choosing Threads of Fate is PERMANENT and cannot be undone, but if you choose replay storyline, you can swap to Threads at any time.

      Blizzard reported on Twitter that they are currently under a DDoS attack which may result in high latency and disconnections for some players.
      Some servers in the EU region are currently under fire and Blizzard are working to mitigate the issue.
