Demon Assaults Guide

Recommended Posts

29449-patch-72-battle-for-valsharah-scen

This week marks the beginning of Demon Assaults in four Broken Isles zones. Completing the assaults is no longer required to unlock account-wide Legion flying (Defender of the Broken IslesDefender of the Broken Isles).

So far, you should have completed two assaults. The first up was Azsuna yesterday and the second one's Val'sharah. The Broken Shore also has a quest (Defending Broken Isles) associated with assaults and completing it grants 1,500 reputation with the Armies of Legionfall.

Players aren't really happy with assaults so far, creating various moan threads, but Blizzard said that every day, there will be at least ONE assault active.

Demon Assault Quests are a great source of Nethershards, so if you're looking for extra shards, don't forget to complete them all.

After you complete four Assault Quests, every zone has a short series of quests which culiminates in a three-player scenario to repel Legion's forces from the zone. The scenario is a good source of gear, as mobs drop Dauntless tokens and the last boss always drops Nethershards and epic-quality gear.

World Quests seem to overlap with Demon Assault Quests, so don't forget to pick up your emissary cache after having completed 4 quests!

Below you'll find video walkthrough of every single zone scenario.

This only the first day, maybe we should wait to see if the RNG will spawn an Invasion between 5pm to 12pm. Majority of people are working/studying between 8am and 5pm. There is also a chance that more than one will spawn a day.

If it is hardcoded to spawn an invasion right after daily reset for 6 hours...

It is almost assuredly not hardcoded to spawn at that time. The first assault to hit the Proudmoore server was several hours after reset yesterday.

I could be wrong but I would take a guess that the invasions are scheduled region-wide and not on a server/server group basis.  The only reason I say this is because I completed the Azsuna invasion on my Demon Hunter on Lightbringer server around 6:30ish PM Central Time.  Lightbringer Realm time is Pacific time which would mean it was about 4:30ish PM, the invasion was scheduled to end at approximately 9:30PM Central/7:30PM Pacific.  I then proceeded to log over to a character on Gorefiend server which is Central time for the realm time.  The exact same time remained which was about 3 hours, meaning that on Gorefiend the invasion was scheduled to end at approximately 9:30PM Central, which was local and realm time.  Guessing that it would have ended at 10:30PM for Eastern time zone realms.

 

Also there are 4 zones to complete assaults in, and they're not just going to disappear after 4 days and never be a thing again.  These will continue until Blizzard either disables them or the end of Legion.

People want content to keep them going but refuse to accept gated content which is, in essence, the same thing.  Granted this doesn't mean they should produce content that is completed within an hour and then you have to wait a week/month/however long for the next set.  But people are crying that this is what's happening.  It's not!!  It took people 1-2 hours to complete the initial broken shores questline, unlock their 26th AK level, and complete their 4th gold trait questline, and finish up any remaining world quests on the broken shore.  Then after that there is nethershard farming, completeing the new dungeon, running the separated upper and lower kara dungeons, as well as just generally completing current content.  For some farming nethershards is something they wanted to buckledown and spend hours doing.  That is still doing new content which is not gated.  I just wish the "gimme now so I can binge and bitch that I have nothing to do" crowd would just shut it's trap and go outside and experience life for once.

      DesMephisto is back (or, more accurately, he never left, as he constantly strives to improve his leveling speeds), and he's gotten his speed record for 10-50 Shadowlands leveling significantly down from his last attempt! 3 hours and 56 minutes (or 3 h 37 min, if you remove the "screwing around" parts) is all it took to get to the equivalent of today's level 120, using Chromie time in Warlords of Draenor, beating the previous best we reported by over an hour and a half.

      Now, it's important to mention that Blizzard have stated in interviews that the current XP rates and leveling speeds on Alpha aren't final and are very rough at the moment, but it's till great to see players going for these speed records nonetheless.
      And here's the last minute or so of the leveling process, and you can check out the whole thing below as well:


      You can also check out our recent interview with the man himself, where he goes into all the many recent achievements he's had, from the 46 max level warriors, to the speed leveling, Autism charity, Guinness World Record and more.

      Method ran Ny'alotha on Heroic difficulty with a raid comprised of 29 Mages and one Demon Hunter, and while they downed all the bosses including N'Zoth, the clear highlight is Dresta'gath that has been defeated in just 22 seconds.
      You can watch the Pyroblast shower and Dresta'gath's decreasing health bar in the following video:

      3D Artist Dronmo has created a jungle in Unreal Engine 4 inspired by Stranglethorn Vale.
      Here's a comparison of the Stranglethorn Vale in World of Warcraft and the recreated version of the zone in Unreal Engine 4 taken from ArtStation.

      Here's another comparison of the zone.

      The artist teamed up with his friend, a guitar virtuoso, who produced ambient relaxing music for the video.
