Patch 7.2 - Anduin Wrynn Broken Shore Cinematic

Recommended Posts

boOUE9r.jpg

Alliance players are able to complete a quest line revolving around Anduin and at the very end, you'll get Artifact Power and a cinematic!

Before we delve deeper into the subject, please note that the quest line contains major lore spoilers.

Anduin Wrynn

Most of the story deals with Anduin's inner struggle and the father-son complex. Varian was a great King who sacrificed everything, a Hero to the Alliance, yet Anduin gets emotionally destroyed just by finding his father's compass. You accompany the disguised Anduin to the Lion's Rest, then you sneak to his advisors - Velen had a vision that Anduin becomes a great King one day. Anduin wants to see the horrors of the Broken Shore (and sacrifices of his people) with his own eyes. Finally, you escort him in front of the Tomb of Sargeras as he insists to see the place where his father fell. 

Alliance players can start the quest line by looking at the Broken Shore map. They'll notice a yellow question mark "!" in the sea. After collecting the compass, you accept the first quest.

A Found Memento

  • <The trinket's fine brass exterior is inlaid with intricate filigree, though much of the detail has been battered by rocks and waves. Clearing away the grime and salt encrusting the clasp, you manage to open it. It is a compass--or was, at least. The glass face is shattered, the needle bent, unmoving. Set into the lid is a portrait. The paint is faded and waterlogged, but the subject is unmistakable: the face of a young Anduin Wrynn.>
  • You'll need to wait a day before the second quest becomes available at Deliverance Point.

Summons to the Keep

  • Greetings, <name>. Your presence has been requested in the royal court. The crown has urgent need of you! Please return to Stormwind at your earliest convenience. King Greymane is anticipating your swift arrival.

Consoling the King

  • Anduin hasn't been the same since you brought him his father's compass. He has become listless... distracted. We attempted to console him, to no avail. Yesterday morning, he left the keep without so much as a word. I ordered the guards to follow him, of course. He went to pray at the cathedral, where he's remained ever since. You brought this melancholy upon him! You must convince the boy to resume his duties. There's a war to be won!

A Kingdom's Heart

  • My father was a legend. He oversaw the rebuilding of Stormwind, stood toe-to-toe with dragons, led the Alliance to numerous victories. Then, one day, he was just... gone. I wear his crown, I hold his title. But I've done nothing to earn them... or the faith of my people. I've spent the war sequestered in the keep, surrounded by guards and advisors. I need to walk the streets of Stormwind, to know whether it is hope or fear that beats in the hearts of my people. I welcome your company.

The King's Path

  • Now that I have seen the Broken Shore and the terror of the Burning Legion first hand, my eyes have been opened to the truth. I speak not of the unfathomable evil of the enemy, but of the bravery and sacrifice that such evil brings about in the hearts of our people. My father once told me that every king must carry the weight of his own crown. Mine has never felt heavier than it does at this very moment... Please take me to the place where my father died, so that I may honor his sacrifice.
  • After completing it, you'll get Ravaged Wristclamp StrapRavaged Wristclamp Strap, which Horde players do not like as it is a free source of Artifact Power for the Alliance, yet the Horde don't have any part in it. There's even a blue post talking about possible reward compensation for the Horde.

Blizzard LogoBlizzard (Source)

The Anduin quest-line and cinematic is intended to tie together the loose ends with the leadership of the Alliance following the events of the Broken Shore in 7.0.

It's aimed to be similar in nature to the second cinematic Horde players saw following the 7.0 introduction quests which solidified Sylvanas as the new Warchief of the Horde.

We're forwarding on the feedback that Horde players are unhappy that Alliance players have a one time source of additional Artifact Power. Thanks for the feedback.

Anduin Wrynn Broken Shore Cinematic

The cinematic's played right after you escort Anduin to Wrynn's Fall, where Greymane and Velen await your arrival.

I haven't seen the cinematic yet and would assume it's epic as only Blizzard can do (prefer to watch it on my PC at home).  I would venture to guess that this cinematic is a similar "passing of the torch" type display that we got when we watched Vol'jin pass on the mantle of warchief to Sylvanas at the beginning of Legion.  If this is the case as a horde and alliance player I'm glad the alliance finally got something to the effect, and it would be nice to give the horde something regarding the AP alliance is getting, but either way it's just a game and I couldn't care one way or the other really.  But this should answer the question of "i'm horde where's my quest?".  Or at least hopefully answer it anyways.

Here i was thinking horde would get a cinematic of a depressed Thrall going back to the spot and Voljins ghost compels him to quit being whiney and rejoin the horde or some junk. Didn't dawn on me that horde had the extra cinematic since the beginning. oh well, it was neat to see.

i'll be real here, I was ally until cataclysm then switched to Horde, I really loved Garrosh as a warchief. Even his whole story if you look at like Nobbels videos is actually kind of tragic and that. I never cared much for thrall but he is the iconic warchief and nothing is really wrong with him except that he cheated in his fight with Garrosh so the elements gave him a time out and he QQ'd about it. I mean with Voljin's death there could be a great story for Thrall redeeming himself reconnecting with elements blah blah blah. Metzen may have voiced him but that doesn't necessarily mean you have to trash can the character. So, I see it as there being room to make Thralls story complete instead of just "walp elements gave me a timeout imma go quit being shaman and cry somewhere". A rather poor end to one of the franchises biggest characters.

Even then when considering it Ally has gotten a bit more robust story telling with their leadership than horde so far. Ours was "we broke another warchief, we need a new one, old one ran away because he didn't wanna get broked". I'm sure sylvannas will likely have some big redemption moment or something but, it be nice for horde to get some sort of continuous leadership that also knows what its doing. *cough voljin did nothign aside from darkspear rebellion cough*. Although Thrall made mistakes, reconnecting deeper with the elements, atoning eternally for his mistakes, could shape him to be a proper proper warchief and he would work great with Anduin as more peacekeeper lets be friends kinda thing. That would remove the whole faction hate thing but I feel that's been a tenuous plot point at best for some time.

I do wonder if this is just a reflection of the two factions - the Alliance is slightly more focused on that ordered society, at least in my opinion, where a king is king because he is king, if that makes sense. It doesn't matter if someone is stronger than Varian, he was the king. It doesn't matter that Velen is a far more powerful priest than Anduin - Anduin is king because he is a Wrynn.

If you look at the leadership of the Horde since its formation, it has always been about strength. The fact that you can challenge a Warchief to Mak'gora for no reason other than wanting to become Warchief is pretty crazy. Blackhand was Warchief because he was powerful, but the real leader of the Horde was Gul'dan, because he was more powerful. Doomhammer killed Blackhand, albeit because he felt the Horde was going the wrong way - but nobody saw this as some treasonous act. It was a fact that Doomhammer killed Blackhand and became Warchief and nobody cared. 

I just think that the Horde is basically destined to keep losing leaders until the orcs are no longer the dominant race. Maybe having Sylvanas as Warchief now will solve it, but who knows?

Honestly with the storyline in MOP i thought Lor'themar was going to get the job. He was mobilizing an army in pandaland, even getting new troops from the Throne of Thunder raid (anybody notice in WoD the blood elves were using the blood golems as troops in talador?). Even during Jaina's tantrum in Dalarn he said to the player "i may have to stand up and lead and I will if it comes to it". So I thought the horde was going to get more consistent leadership buuuuuut we didn't XD.

Even then I'm calling it now, we going to break Sylvannas too (or she does some noble sacrifice redemption thing). So the question then will be who is going to be warchief? However, I think if not next expansion then eventually we will see the player become king/warchief.

Spoiler

The comics show Anduin leading the army of light so he is off on the sexodar with Velen, horde has no leader set up to replace sylvannas accept other racial leaders that exist, so I think We are going to become king/warchief eventually.

Maybe putting us as the leaders of our class "orders" was testing the water to see how people felt about being placed in a position of considerable lore-power.

      A big batch has arrived today with fixes to the Auction House, Azerite Powers and Corruption effects, increases to rare spawns, a nerf to the Defragmentation Punchcard in PvP, Vulpera and Mechagnome issue fixes and the usual large amount of quest tweaks and fixes.
      January 17 (source)
      Achievements
      Fixed an issue where a dead player's Damage Over Time effect could cause the raid to fail The Best of Us . Auction House
      Bids now display properly in the sell tab for caged pets. Fixed a bug causing the quantity field to be empty when selling a non-commodity.

The spawn frequency of several Rare enemies in Uldum and Vale of Eternal Blossoms Assault areas has been increased. Items
      Azerite Essences Fixed an issue that caused Breath of the Dying’s minor damage effect at Rank 1 or 2 to benefit from the Rank 3 increased proc chance against low health targets. Corruption Effects Fixed an issue preventing Twilight Devastation from triggering on ranged attacks. Infinite Stars damage reduced by 25% at all Corruption levels. Player versus Player

Titan Artifacts should now appear for the quest “Unearthed Artifacts ” regardless of the completion status of the Assault bar-fill objective. Assault daily quests such as “The Sun King's Chosen ” or “The Strongest Among Them ” now require 3 Rare kills (was 4). Rare kills now provide more credit for Assaults. User Interface

This item will be awarded to players on their next run if they satisfy these conditions.

      Blizzard have clarified what keystone you need to complete this week in order to get the +15 next week and the answer is a +19. The wording on the exact decrease in keys for Season 4 next week has been a little unclear, but it's now clarified that the decrease will in fact be 4.
      M+ Season 4 Decrease (source)
      If you want a +15 next week, you will want to do a +19 this week. Happy dungeon-ing this weekend all! ?

      Blizzard have posted some additional details on the rewards structure for Horrific Visions, from the relation of item level vs. how much you cleared and gathered inside each vision, the weekly tier rewards and the fact that the rewards in general are not RNG but dependent on the milestones you clear.
      You can read more on Horrific Visions in general in our in-depth guide here.
      Horrific Vision Rewards Clarifications (source)
      We’d like to clarify some details about rewards from Horrific Visions. Items are awarded from Horrific Visions at the following milestones:
      Objective Reward iLvl Vision Boss Only 420 Vision Boss + 2 Bonus Objectives 430 Full Clear No Masks 445 Full Clear + 1 Mask 450 Full Clear + 2 Masks 455 Full Clear + 3 Masks 460 Full Clear + 4 Masks 465 Full Clear + 5 Masks 470 Each week, you can obtain each tier of rewards once, with a 100% chance to obtain the best reward that the you were eligible for on any given Horrific Vision.
      For example, if on your first run of the week you clear 2 bonus objectives and defeat the Vision boss, you’ll get an iLvl 430 item. If you then repeat that run, you’ll get the iLvl 420 item that you were eligible for (because you’re no longer eligible for an iLvl 430 item until the weekly reset). If you then perform a full clear, you’ll get the iLvl 445 piece.
      Please note: the presence or absence of other players in Horrific Visions does not influence the chance for an item to be rewarded. All loot tracking is personal, and a character must be alive and sane at the start of an encounter in order to receive credit.

      We have an incoming hotfix for the Infinite Stars trait, with a significant nerf to its damage at all corruption levels, as well as some more issues with the revamped Auction House.
      Corruption Effect (source)
      We’re working on a hotfix that will adjust the Infinite Stars Corruption Effect:
      Items
      Corruption Effects
      Infinite Stars damage at all Corruption levels has been reduced by 25%. This hotfix should go live in the next few hours, and will appear in our next hotfixes update tomorrow.
       
      Auction House Issues (source)
      Here are some additional issues that we have identified and are actively investigating:
      When items are returned in the mail from the Auction House, it can incorrectly contain more stacks than the displayed maximum of 16. This makes it look like some items are not being delivered. You will know if you are experiencing this if a mail appears empty but can’t be deleted. To retrieve the missing items in this scenario, take out all 16 of the displayed stacks, then close and reopen the mailbox to see the rest (you may need to repeat this several times). If a character buys commodities in high quantities, they may not be able to access their mail. The favorites list is not saving properly. We have resolved some of the issues causing the “Internal Auction Error” to pop up, but it is still occurring and we are continuing to look into it.

      We'll once again have two competing Mythic raid race events in the new patch, as we've already heard about Method's, but now we also found out Limit (who were also recently added to the Complexity esports org) will be hosting their own!
      A raid ago, in the Eternal Paalce, we saw Red Bull going up against Method's event, with the two having split ways after previously working together on two events (Uldir and Dazar'alor), and Limit were among the guilds headlining the Red Bull event. With the larger org to back Limit up they've now decided to take Method's route and go it alone, with several guilds also joining them, namely Pieces, Big Dumb Guild, Fat Shark Yes, and Club Camel, with the live broadcast for the event held at Complexity’s GameStop Performance Center in Frisco, Texas. 
      The real winners here are the viewers following the race for World First, with the Eternal Palace having been an amazing experience with so many different perspectives to check out and some great commentators on both sides, driving viewership of the race through the roof (with over 200,000 concurrent twitch viewers at one point). It also seems the split in the events here is EU vs. US, which seems fitting as that's always been a division in the raid race - and a pretty intense one at that.
      When it comes to the race itself, this one's going to be pretty damn awesome, as Eternal Palace was one of the best races in WoW history, with Limit getting extremely close to toppling Method, after they basically threw away a win back in Uldir over one wrong non-resetting call. With 12 bosses the final raid/race of the expansion should last a bit longer than usual, which also makes the Asia server guilds a competitor, despite their 2 day-disadvantage over US and 1 over EU, so we might see an even crazyer race - and we get to watch it all live! As always we'll also be covering the race with daily summaries of the action, in case you prefer to catch up with the events instead of follow them live.
