Army of the Light Reputation Farming

You will gain reputation with the Army of the Light from World Quests and completing the Argus story. If you compare it to Broken Shore World Quests, the new faction shouldn't take so long to farm, because there are three zones full of World Quests, not just one.

  • Each World Quest rewards +75 reputation
  • Story Quests reward +75 reputation

On PTR, Argus World Quests do not currently reward additional reputation during the World Quests Bonus Event (Sign of the EmissarySign of the Emissary).

A full list of quests that increase your reputation with Armies of the Light can be found here.

Army of the Light Reputation Tokens & Missions

There are four insignias for the new faction.

Insignias that give +250 reputation will be available from missions. To unlock access to Krokuun Followers and Equipment Missions (Krokuun EquipmentKrokuun Equipment), you first need to complete the Remnants of Darkfall Ridge quest (16-hour mission).

Insignias that grant +750 reputation will most likely be added to the The Kirin Tor of Dalaran quest.

How on big blue earth did the designers forget about BOWS, CROSSBOWS and GUNS? 

Oh right -- apparently more crapping on Hunters in Legion. GG, Blizz.

Yeah, it's not like they gave us multiple new pet families to tame this expansion or anything.

500k gold, are they nuts? Not everyone made millions in previous expansions.

And why are the ranged weapons (bows, caster 1 handers) so left out when it comes to transmogging?

Better than 2 million like that spider mount. Earning gold in WOW isn't that tough really. If you have a few alts with 200% success chance for those gold missions, it adds up pretty quickly. Farm and sell mats, etc. Run old instances and sell the loot.

That's assuming every hunter plays Beast Mastery lol. (Since you have to pop a point into concord on Titanstrike for the tome)

To be fair, you can pretty comfortably hit Concord on all 3 weapons in a week with AK40.

      Two weeks ago, Blizzard started the PvP Like a Pro series, where they talk to world best Arena players. The first part was about finding the right partners and the second discussed team composition. Part 3 is devoted to effective practicing.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Part 3 - Practicing Effectively
      Minpojke of team Northern Gaming Blue has achieved rank one in Arena every season since 2011. His current squad has been playing together for more than two years, and came third in the Global Finals at BlizzCon 2016. With his help, we’ve built a five-step guide to help you practice like a pro!
      Synergy - Align Your Team
      Before setting out on your quest to the top, make sure you’re “aligned as a team,” says Minpojke. Like in any group activity, “it’s very important that everyone has the same goals and the same drive to do what it takes to win.” Make sure your team shares similar ambitions, and is aligned on how much effort will be required to achieve them. And of course, make sure you have similar gaming schedules so you can play and practice together!
      Atmosphere - Stay Positive
      It’s important to have a good atmosphere while playing. Minpojke says, “If you and your group get along and even become friends, you’ll like playing and actually learn more as well.” Be sure that the mood stays positive so that you can enjoy competing and improving together. It’s much easier to keep a team motivated if you’re all having fun—it’s a game after all!
      Stated more simply, Minpojke says, “It’s easy to win as a team—in the sense that it’s easy to be happy and celebrate—but if you’re capable of losing together, then you’ll be a great team.”
      Strategy - Know the Meta
      When it comes to making practice effective, Minpojke feels it’s a priority to stay up to date with the current meta. He told us that the best way to do this is to follow tournaments, high-level Arena streams, and the PvP Leaderboards to see which classes are on top.
      “It’s quite easy to keep up with the meta. Watch streams to see what the pros are playing, and track the ladder to see which classes and compositions are at the top. And don’t forget to follow tournaments to see the best comps shine.” Once you’re confident in what you want to play, it’s time to queue up! As FabsS discussed in our previous interview, Minpojke says that it’s important to set your win condition before the gates open. “Ask what you want to achieve as a team; will you focus on a lot of CC or try to draw out the game longer?” Since you know what matchup you’ll be playing against, you can start to ask these questions and develop your strategy.
      Analysis - Review Your Games
      If your setup supports it, Minpojke recommends recording as many sessions as you can—they’re much more valuable then looking at a damage meter. He says that the first objective is to see if you followed your game plan. Did you stick to it? Did it work? If the answer to either of these questions is no, you need to work on executing the plan better in future or possibly changing it up all together.
      Watching your own recordings is also a chance to highlight individual mistakes. As Minpojke says, “Always stay self-critical, and always look for ways to improve—you’ll notice pretty quickly your most crucial and common mistakes.” While Minpojke emphasizes that “losing is arguably the best way of learning,” he also reminded us that “it’s very important to recognize when you do well.” Think positively here: no one can play the perfect game, but there are often good takeaways to be emulated going forward.
      Reviewing recordings of his gameplay is a regular part of Minpojke’s routine, as well as discussing previous matches with his team between games while queueing. You can learn from a win as well as a loss!
      Execute - Implement Your Analysis
      After watching the replays, it’s time to set your goals. Decide what you want to focus on, and “make plans before you queue for a session.” If there was a specific matchup you were struggling with, you can discuss plans for how you’ll react to it next time.
      In some instances, it could be worth writing some notes, especially if you have many things to focus on versus many compositions. Minpojke equated it to studying for a test, “Practice it, and read it over and over until it sticks in your head.”
      Minpojke attended his first BlizzCon with current teammate Zunniyaki in 2013, finishing in second place. Northern Gaming Blue are the defending European Champions, and with nine BlizzCon appearances between their players, they’re one of the most experienced rosters in the field.
      You can watch Minpojke and Northern Gaming Blue compete live at gamescom from August 23-26. For the full details on when and where you can watch, head on over to our European Championship Finals blog.
