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.

      With the second potency conduits unlocked for many companions, the options have also opened up significantly and players are now much more likely to want to swap their Soulbind than before.
      Luckily, while you still have to be at a Sanctum Forge to change your Conduits, you can actually switch your Soulbinds in any resting area! Whether it's the main Torghast hall, any random inn or similar, you can swap away at your leisure! You can even swap it at the Torghast vendors or with the Kyrian Steward!
      You just head to your Covenant screen and select your current Soulbind to access the menu:

      You can also select different trees on this screen, and while you still can't change the specific Conduits, you can still swap them around a little on your pre-set trees, which could help (a little) with the same Soulbind for off-spec problem.

      An even easier way to swap is if you're changing spec, if you have a different Soulbind on the different spec, it'll automatically switch to it as well.
      While a lot of you may have known this already, hopefully it will help out at least a few players and avoid some Sanctum return-trips.

      Here comes a pretty handy list of the various dispellable effect from some dungeons, as spherchip compiled those they thought were the most relevant and important to remove!
      While it's certainly not a comprehensive list, and some have already pointed out a few missing potentially tricky ones (like Withering Discharge in ToP and the Spinemaw Reaver poisons in Mists), it's a pretty handy and easy to use list to keep in mind!

      Source: spherchip.
      Hopefully this helps some healers out and even some DPS as they are more careful around the effects listed! And if you have any particular ones that cause you a headache, write em up in the comments!

      Here come more hotfixes after yesterday's gigantic batch and as you'd expect, they're pretty small. We have some class fixes and a M+ correction and 1 more Covenant fix as well.
      January 26 (source)
      Classes
      Mage Arcane Arcane Barrage should now correctly return 1.5% mana per Arcane Charge. Priest Crystalline Reflection (Legendary Effect) damage will no longer cause players to stand up while they are eating or drinking. Warlock Unstable Affliction will now appear as a high priority debuff on raid frames. Covenants
      Night Fae Fixed an issue where the Covenant Sanctum report was displaying the incorrect status of the wildseeds growing in the Queen’s Conservatory. Dungeons and Raids
      Mythic Keystone Dungeons Fixed an issue where Prideful’s Belligerent Boast missiles could change direction unexpectedly.

      We're back with another look at the logs for Mythic+ for the past 2 weeks for DPS, tank and healer specs! We'll be taking a look at a wide variety of data, from all keys in all three roles for the 95th and all percentiles, as well as take a special look at +15 and +20 keys as well.
      The big difference comes after last week's class tuning, as Fury has jumped up significantly, in 7th place at the moment, but the other two specs buffed in the tuning didn't quite fare as well, since Assassination is still at the bottom and Frost Mage only jumped a couple of spots.

      Mythic+ All Keys 95th Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.

      Then let's see what our expert has to say about the numbers:
      Petko:

      Mythic+ All Keys All Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
       
      Tank Specs
       
      Mythic+ All Keys All Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
      +15 and +20
      And finally, let's take a look at the +15 keys for the DPS role specifically, where two of the buffed specs are doing really well, as Assassination is on top and Fury is in 3rd in the high percentiles!

      Mythic+15 95th Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
      While Fury's spot seems very solid throughout, there's apparently something about +15s that draws a lot of high-level Assassination players to it, as its position drops immediately when looking at the all percentage chart:

      Mythic+15 All Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
      The +20ies are different again, going back to a more "standard" layout, with the really REALLY small log numbers creating some very weird charts in the All percentiles bracket, with only 2 Survival hunters making the best of it!

      Mythic+20 95th Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.

      Mythic+20 All Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
       
      For even more in-depth data for each individual key head on over to Warcraft Logs. And if you're interested in more info on the specs themselves you can always check out our guides as well or our extensive Mythic+ guides as well!
