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.

      This one needs to be seen to be believed, and luckily there's a video to prove it and see the entire process in action!
      AnitASketch, who specializes in amazing Etch A Sketch art has dived into WoW and created an incredibly detailed rendition of the gates of Orgrimmar... in only 45 minutes! But first, you may be wondering what exactly an Etch A Sketch is. Well, as you can see below it's a toy with which you can "draw" using only two knobs, which move an enclosed stylus pen horizontally and vertically:   There are plenty more sketches like this one from other franchises/universes, from Lord of the Rings to Game of Thrones and plenty more (like Kermit Vs. Miss Piggy Lightsabre duel), so definitely check the channel out!

      Here's one for the books. The "make up your mind, game" books, that is.
      Popozhao had a veritable roller coaster of emotions in the several seconds after finishing a +15, as the game really wasn't sure whether it was a successful run or not. First things first, to be fair it was a VERY close call and seemingly a failed run according to the timer, as it was 0.024 seconds late! That's an incredibly small margin (but not the smallest, as we've seen the ultimate king of close calls that's unlikely to ever be beaten) and apparently so small that the game was confused, as it played the following series of announcements:

      Source.
      So, first comes the failed timer from the addon, followed by some taunting and teasing from Denathrius due to the failure and then... congratulations, you got keystone master! We have a lot of conflicting info here, as the addon says it's 0.024 seconds late, and the Denathrius whisper seemingly confirms it, but Raider.IO has the run as being under time by 0.975 seconds, which is most likely the correct timing. Denathrius does seem like the type to gloat prematurely as well, so it all checks out! Here's what Popozhao and a few other redditors thought might have also been the issue:
      In any case, it's a pretty weird interaction overall, but aside from being an incredibly close call at the end, it was a happy ending, so congrats on the achievement!

      An extremely lucky player received Smoldering Egg of Millagazor twice in 13 hours.
      Smoldering Egg of Millagazor drops from Heroic Ragnaros and the mount has a 1% drop chance. While a lot of players have been farming the Firelands for a long time and haven’t seen it drop yet, Reddit user FloridaTattooer88 was fortunate enough to receive the same mount twice 13 hours apart on live servers!

      Reddit user StarFox_1257 wrote up a lengthy guide, going through Best-in-Slot gear, gems, and consumables for Timewalking events.
      If you want to maximize your damage/healing in Timewalking dungeons and raids, here is an extensive guide written by StarFox_1257. Remember that the weekly quest offers a single piece of Item Level 200 gear, and you can get additional gear in the Black Temple raid. Burning Crusade Timewalking will be up until Tuesday.

      This is one for the "weird bugs that are actually kind of awesome" collection, as a player got to keep his Shadowform after switching back to Discipline!
      Quakes19 was minding their own business playing some arena as Disc, then queued as Shadow while still remaining in Disc (which would make the spec switch when a match started and switch back when it ended), and logged out after the matches. The next day, well, there was a pretty nice present waiting, as Shadowform had remained active while the spec reverted back to Discipline! That's a solid 10% extra spell damage until death/logout, which also helps out with Disc's healing, so it's a pretty good deal!
      This is probably not the first time something like this has happened, but it's always fun to check out the actually fun weird occurrences in the game! Hopefully quakes19 had some fun with it and didn't die too fast!
