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.

      Dunegorger Kraulok is up this week and drops Slightly Damp Pile of Fur, so don't forget to head to Vol'dun and defeat the world boss for a chance at Mollie.
      Slightly Damp Pile of Fur is one of the Alpaca mounts added in Visions of N'Zoth. It has a small chance to drop from Dunegorger Kraulok in Vol'dun. Battle for Azeroth world bosses are on a fixed rotation, so you won't be able to kill Kraulok for a few weeks. You can try to kill the world boss on your alts too for an increased chance at Mollie.
      "The kind nature of alpacas makes them perfect as companions for the intrepid adventurer."

      Mollie the Alpaca mount in WoW.

      We're back with the weekly Mythic+ updates, as this week sees Fire rocket even further away from the other specs and Fury rises the most among top players! Luckily Fire will be toned down come 9.1, but it's going to remain the extreme top dog for a while more.
      Note: The logs are based on POINTS, and not actual damage or healing, meaning they log the timed completion for the specs, with higher keys getting more points, obviously. The time in which the dungeon is completed is also a factor, but a much, much smaller one, as it grants very few points if you do it significantly faster than just any in-time completion. We're also using the Normalized Aggregate Scores numbers, for clarity, meaning the top spec is marked as 100 and then the rest are ranked in relation to that peak point.
      This past week was Tyrannical, Inspiring, Necrotic (and Prideful).
      All Keys
      Fire remains far above all the other specs this week in the 95th as even Balance and Outlaw, who were hanging in there the last two weeks, fall back down with the rest of them! The two specs also switch places in 2nd and 3rd, as Fury is the main mover in the top, jumping 2 spots to land just outside the top 5, as Affliction falls one to accommodate it. Frost Mage jumped the most spots overall, however, sneaking into the top 10 with a 4 spot leap, as Assassination drops a few to make room.

      Mythic+ All Keys 95th Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
      All percentiles follows the top ones this week, with Balance taking 2nd and Fury rising, with Elemental actually topples Marksmanship, unlike in the 95th.

      Mythic+ All Keys All Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
      High Keys
      The +15 crowd is as stable as ever, with only Elemental rising a significant amount, and Assassination falling off 3 spots but remaining in the top 10. Feral had a decent week, dragging itself up from dead last a whole 5 spots, leaving Demo and BM to languish at the bottom. Increasingly this bracket seems to be the actual most realistic benchmark for the specs, as more and more players play in this particular sandbox.

      Mythic+15 All Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
      Th twenties are actually quite stable this week and it seems the Subtletly game is up, as it spends another week down around the bottom. Shadow also dropped a little, with the biggest mover being Feral, who went down to the penultimate spot.

      In this week's 9.1 build, Blizzard made the legendary Hunter bow from Sylvanas upgradable.
      Rae'shalare, Death's Whisper, the legendary Hunter bow dropped by Sylvanas Windrunner in Sanctum of Domination, can be upgraded with two items that drop on higher difficulties.
      Wraithwisp Sinew drops on Heroic difficulty and improves the bow to item level 246. Ethereal Fletching drops on Mythic difficulty and the item improves the bow to item level 259. Hunters will be able to obtain Rae'shalare, Death's Whisper, which grants them the Wailing Arrow ability, and a quiver (Dark Ranger's Quiver) with a unique effect that synergizes well with the bow (Withering Fire) in Chains of Domination.

      Wielders of the bow will also earn the following Feat of Strength achievement that was added this week in Build 39015 - Rae'shalare, Death's Whisper.
