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.

Battle for Azsuna

Battle for Highmountain

Battle for Stormheim

Battle for Val'sharah

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.

Is there information about 2nd assault giving 1500 reputation again. Or will it take for non-chest farmers like weeks to get to flying?

No more rep here...

      The article aims to explain content that will not be available immediately when Tides of Vengeance goes live this week.
      War Campaign (December 11)
      New War Campaign chapters await both factions, but they are staggered and culminate in opening of the Battle of Dazar'alor raid.
      8.1 Tides of Vengeance: War Campaign Part 1 (December 11th) (A): Continue the War Campaign by joining Jaina Proudmoore in the defense of Kul Tiras. Rally your allies and rout the Horde! (H): Continue the War Campaign by joining Rexxar in Kul Tiras and disrupting the Alliance's Azerite weapons testing. 8.1 Tides of Vengeance War Campaign Part 2 (December 18th) (A): A new ally in the war needs your help-- and a little bit of gnomish engineering--to execute his brilliant plan. (H): Assist Trade Prince Gallywix in a test drive of his deadly brand new mech, the G.M.O.D. Battle of Dazar'alor Raid (January 22)
      The raid becomes available on January 22 and that's more than a month away from now.
      January 22 — Normal and Heroic Difficulties January 29 — Mythic and Raid Finder Wing 1               February 12 — Raid Finder Wing 2 February 26 — Raid Finder Wing 3  Allied Races: Kul Tiran Humans & Zandalari Trolls
      Both Allied Races were confirmed to join their respective factions after the raid and while no specific dates were announced yet, we at least know the unlock requirements for both races.
      Mythic Season 2 (January 22)
      New Seasonal Affix: Infested is retiring and once the new raid opens, Reaping will take its place. The Season 2 affix is themed after Bwonsamdi. Every 20% on the Enemy forces bar, Bwonsamdi resurrects spirits of fallen enemies that will charge at you no matter where you are. Item Level Increase: Blizzard's increasing dungeon rewards and difficulty across all dungeons as follows: Normal dungeons drop ilvl 340 gear (up from ilvl 310). Heroic dungeons drop ilvl 355 gear (up from ilvl 325). Mythic dungeons drop ilvl 370 gear (up from ilvl 340). Weekly Mythic Cache & Mythic+ Rewards: Items found in your Grand Challenger's Bounty and end-of-run rewards will have a higher item level as well.  Mythic+2 rewards start at 375 up to item level 400 from Mythic+10. Check out more details in our guide. Azerite Armor Vendor: Items sold by Thaumaturge Vashreeen for Titan Residuum will be increased to a maximum of item level 415 (up from 385). Battle for Azeroth PvP Season 2 (January 22)
      The second Season becomes available along with Mythic Season 2 and the Dazar'alor raid. This means an overall item level increase in rewards across the board. Gladiators will be able to earn a new proto-drake.
      Crucible of the Storm Raid
      Game files contain all data for the second 8.1 raid, but it probably won't open before the release of Patch 8.1.5.

      If you pre-order the Warcraft III: Spoils of War Edition, you will receive the Meat Wagon mount this week in World of Warcraft. 
      Spoils of War costs $39.99 and comes with various in-game rewards and you can find them all here. The game will be released on or before December 31, 2019.
      Meat Wagon is a new mount reward available in Tides of Vengeance. If you already pre-ordered Spoils of War, you will find the mount in your mailbox tomorrow or when Patch 8.1 goes live after maintenance in your gameplay region. The mount is really cool and comes with a catapult that hurls meat.
      "A favorite unit of the Lich King, both for its power as a siege weapon, and the satisfying sound of flung meat."

      Do you like the mount? Let us know in the comments!

      With a fair amount of game adaptations heading over to Netflix in TV show form, the most recent and significant being the Witcher, Str1der has taken it upon himself to make a trailer for what a World of Warcraft show might look like. With the Warcraft movie not having done so well and having somewhat deviated from the original lore (although, so has the game itself at this point), it would really be a nice thing to see all the ancillary content featured in novels and comics etc. brought together in TV show format.
      The trailer is pretty well put together, however the choice of the song "Human" is clearly Alliance-favoritism and wholly inappropriate, therefore we all need to boycott it!!11 (For those of you that are sensitive to the faction allegiances, well, first of all, what's wrong with you, and second, that was a joke.)
      My personal favorite is when Illidan shows up and the song goes "some people have real problems", which is perhaps one of the most accurate song to scene pairings in the history of trailers.
      So, what do you think of the trailer and the idea of a Netflix WoW show? Should it focus on present day Azeroth and follow the expansions to give us a better understanding of the characters we interact with, or would you prefer it to start from the very beginning and eventually catch up?
