Gold Making

Returning Players

  • No need to finish Broken Shore to unlock all Artifact traits, but Assault on Broken Shore needs to be completed on at least one character to begin your journey to Argus. (Thanks @Grimfist)
  • The 3rd relic slot is unlocked automatically when you reach level 110.
  • All players start at Artifact Knowledge level 41 and gain 1 AK level / week without research.
  • Invasions are still a fast way to level up your character.
  • Man'ari Training AmuletMan'ari Training Amulet is a new heirloom obtained from an Order Hall mission.

Gearing

  • Argus world quest rewards are up to item level 895.
  • New Relinquished items cost 650 Veiled Argunite each. The most efficient way to acquire the currency is by doing Argus world quests or completing new weekly quests.
  • Relinquished items start at item level 910 and you may get Tomb of Sargeras gear from them.
  • Dungeons had their difficulty and rewards increased.
    • Normal: ilvl 845 (was 825)
    • Heroic: ilvl 865 (was 845)
    • Mythic: ilvl 885 (was 865)
  • During your adventures on Argus, you will come across Unsullied gear. These tokens (Unsullied Cloth CapUnsullied Cloth Cap) are the Bind-to-Account and equivalent to dauntless tokens. The base item level is 880.

Reputation

  • Nathrezim Tome of ManipulationNathrezim Tome of Manipulation increases rep gains with Broken Isles factions by 200% for 2 hours. The item's intended for lower level alts and won't work past 109.
  • Demon's SoulstoneDemon's Soulstone can only be used on Argus and the item increases your reputation standing by 1,000 with all factions. It's good for catching up reputation with the Nightfallen.

Professions

Factions

There are two factions with various rewards and the most efficient way to farm reputation is by doing world quests.

Argus

Gameplay Videos

During 7.3 testing, we uploaded three videos showing off Argus gameplay and the campaign.

This is going to be a good patch. Hoping they stick to the 77 day cycle, so this won't be another Siege of Orgrimmar. Raid looks good though too.

Random drop from rares on Argus.

Thanks for this awesome info roundup. For me as a returning player very informative.

But I have a little problem, where the hell can I start the quest to go to Argus, can't find it anywhere. (I stopped playing when I hit lvl110 a year ago, and have now returned)

It should automatically pop up in your quest log when you visit Dalaran. I had a similar issue on PTR.

Go to

  • Bladefist Bay and talk to Lady Liadrin if you're Horde
  • Stormwind Harbor and talk to Vereesa if you're Alliance

Just to further Stan's advice above, it seems zoning into a new zone will trigger it if it hasn't already, for some reason.

Well it didn't show up all the time, so I hunted the issue down with a GM, and apparently you need to have completed the first steps of the order hall campaign so that the Broken Shore scenario becomes available and you need to complete the Assault on the Broken shore. After that the starting Quest "The Hand of Fate" becomes available.

Ah, so it was because you hadn't participated in the prior events rather than having done everything and it just didn't pop up. I misunderstood what your issue was, sorry!

Of course you will be required to sacrifice a goat or an alliance player once a week to the Horde gods..... You will also be required to laugh and have fun as well! We do have fun!
