Patch 7.2 - Broken Shore Advancement Update

Recommended Posts


Broken Shore buildings grant several variable perks. Initially, we thought Blizzard was replacing them and tried experimenting with bonuses in every 7.2 PTR Build, but instead, they are supposed to change periodically.

We wrote multiple posts about Broken Shore advancement (see Sources below) and based on information gathered from previous articles, we're writing an update on the buildings.

We found out every building has three permanent perks, accessible when a building is unlocked and four variable perks.

At the moment, you need to contribute 100 Legionfall War Supplies for advancement. The contribution reward is Legionfall RecompenseLegionfall Recompense that contains Gold, Nethershards and also Dauntless tokens (maybe there's even more loot associated with it, with a lower drop chance we haven't seen yet). Prices are subject to change before 7.2 goes live.

Mage Tower it is. 

Extra AP, Water walking while mounted, hidden artifact appearances, and legionfall rep (required for flight.) 

Seems like a no-brianer.  (sp intended.)

      We have a big one today as Lorekeeper.net got a hold of Narrative Lead Steve Danuser and got a whole lot of new info from him on many different aspects of the Shadowlands. We even got an answer to the very frequently asked question about what happens to Alternate Universe souls when they die, aka is there an AU Shadowlands! And even thought the answer is somewhat vague, it's a definitive one - there is only one Shadowlands and all souls from any parallel universes end up there.

      We also learned a lot more from the interview, like:
      Time is different in the Shadowlands and that affects everything else (related to most of the other answers below). Other cosmic force characters (Life, Death, Order, Disorder, Light, Void), like the Naaru, don't go to the Shadowlands when they die, as they go back to their point of origin and reform over time, barring any intervention. Some Necromancer class rumors were dispelled, Maldraxxus wasn't intended as a tease for it. We got an explanation as to what exactly happens when someone is raised from the dead, with the Forsaken in focus and their relationship to Death as the cosmic force that now anchors their souls to their bodies, whereas Life served that function when they were alive. And so their souls are not in the Shadowlands but simply bound to their bodies by a different source than in life. We also found out what the relationships of couples and close relationships are like after death in the Shadowlands - with another relatively vague answer with Draka's example - basically she's busy with the events in the Shadowlands to think about her mortal life, and since time is different she doesn't really perceive it as an issue. There are additional parts of the Shadowlands the team didn't get to explore, but will in future updates. There's a whole lot to more unpack and read about in the massive interview, and all of it is extremely interesting, and not only for lore enthusiasts, as the Shadowlands really does act as a big setup for expanding the Warcraft universe. Definitely go check out the full thing as it's full of pretty huge revelations, even in addition to the highlights we pulled out above.

      We have some more very interesting maps to take a look at, as redditor ChromeDragon has created a new territorial/political map for Classic/Vanilla, featuring both the civilized races and the somewhat more savage/adversarial mob races as well! These two maps are also interesting to use as comparison to how things changed later down the line in Warcraft's history, especially with the Cataclysm and more recent, tree-burning and Warfront events.
      We start off with the new map, featuring the less civilized or forgotten races of Azeroth or rather the player antagonists int he game, those that don't show up on other similar maps. They don't hold quite as much territory, what with players coming in every 2 minutes and ransacking their homes, but it's still interesting to see where some of the more prominent settlements are. From Murlocs to Furbolgs, Centaurs, Harpies, Quillboars and so on, there's many of them out there controlling a lot of territory and while there might be some missing, it's still a great overview!

      The exact description from ChromeDragon for the above was "Basically a political map of azeroth if you removed all the races capable of building two story buildings", which sparked quite a fun conversation over on reddit, so make sure to check that out as well.
      And then there's the older, more traditional map, created quite a while ago, covering the territories of the races and tribes we're more familiar with, from playable races to NPC ones, like Orcs, Night Elves, Dwarves and organizations like the Scarlet Crusade, Cenarion Circle etc.

      Here come more realm connections, and the citizens of Khadgar are terrified. The postponed connection of their realm with 3 others caused a little time travel accident and reverted many characters to their Mists of Pandaria days, or as Blizzard refer to it below it "ran into issues".
      Let's hope it goes smoothly this time around, as the aftermath of the previous "issues" is still being resolved.
      Realm Connections (source)
      Following regularly scheduled weekly maintenance on Tuesday, September 29, the following realms will be taken offline. During this additional maintenance period:
      The Exodar and Medivh realms will be connected to the Alleria and Khadgar realms. As many players know, this connection was previously planned and ran into issues.
      On Tuesday, we’ll begin the additional maintenance period for these four realms at 8:00 am. PDT (11:00 a.m. EDT), and the realms will come back online when the connection process is completed, which we’re estimating to be around 4:00 p.m. PDT (7:00 p.m. EDT).
