The Burning of Teldrassil Intro on Battle for Azeroth Alpha

Recommended Posts

The Burning of Teldrassil intro is now available on Battle for Azeroth Alpha. The most recent build added a portion of the scenario that results in the Battle for Lordaeron.

The Burning of Teldrassil Intro

It all starts with Anduin offering the initial quest in Stormwind Keep.

A Short-Lived Peace

<Player Name>

As the Legion's presence wanes from our world, a new threat has arisen. It is with a heavy heart that I must ask you to lay your life down for the Alliance once more.

I have received a disturbing message from our operatives stationed in Orgrimmar. It seems that the Warchief has already began spinning the gears of war.

I await your arrival at Stormwind Keep to discuss matters further.

You, as my father's champion, have fought bravely in the name of the Alliance time and time again. For that, I owe you a great debt of gratitude.

The Horde Uprising

Reports have indicated that the Horde is mobilizing an army towards Silithus. Given the potential that azerite has to change the face of war, it should come as no surprise that the Warchief would want to lay her claim on it.

The only surprise is that it has begun so soon. The Horde and the Alliance have both suffered unimaginable losses on Argus.

Speak with Mathias Shaw. I want you to oversee Stormwind's presence in Silithus.

<Master Mathias Shaw appears>

Quote

Master Mathias Shaw says: <Player Name>! Your majesty -- wait! I have received new information!

A Disturbance in Ashenvale

The Horde! They diverted at the North fork of the Barrens! They have marched on Ashenvale!

Most of Malfurion's troops have already set sail for Silithus, but Darnassus has sent its city guards to help reinforce Astranaar. Their captain goes by the name of Delaryn Summermoon.

Find her, <Player Name>. Hold the city for as long as you can. King Anduin and I will send a fleet as soon as we can muster.

Now you must take the boat to Darnassus from Stormwind Harbor and fly from Rut'theran Village to Astranaar. Once you enter Astranaar, you'll see the village on fire and notice a bunch of Night Elf corpses that have been poisoned by Rogues.

Quote

Captain Delaryn Summermoon says: I... it was too late. I... couldn't save them... Anaris... what did they do to you? By the location of the bodies, I think the town was taken by surprise. The guards were poisoned where they stood. Rogues. Then, they rounded up the civilians in the center of the city and... it is such a horrific thought. I'm sorry, who are you again? Are you the one that Malfurion spoke of?

The Light of Elune

My sisters lie slain on the soft earth of Ashenvale. We are trained to expect losses in battle, but I have never seen something so horrific -- something so -- cowardly. The Horde have sunk to a new low in this war.

We do not have time to grieve, but we are not savages as the horde have proven to be.

Please, <Player Name>, will you help me say a prayer to Elune so that we may honor the fallen? Their wisps deserve the light of her blessing.

The next step is to honor the bodies of the fallen soldiers in Astranaar. This quest is really simple. All you need to do is to click six corpses.

A Soft Glow

This light of the wisps... it is all around us. Why does the forest awaken?

I hear... something. That sounds -- could it be our Shan'do?

Quickly, <Player Name>, Malfurion beckons!

You go to Twilight Vale, where you find fallen Orgrimmar Raiders, Sylvanas and Malfurion. Malfurion roots everyone and the Horde soldiers try to rush through the wall of wisps and attack, but get killed in the process.

Quote

Malfurion Stormrage yells: You will make it no further, Banshee Queen!

Lady Sylvanas Windrunner yells: Soldiers -- no -- do not rush the --!!!

Malfurion informs you that you can pass through the wall unharmed while Sylvanas escapes.

Quote

Malfurion Stormrage says: You may pass through the wall unharmed, <Player Name>. The wisps will not harm you.

Lady Sylvanas Windrunner yells: There will be nowhere to run next time we meet, Malfurion!

To Darnassus!

The Warchief has come for us. I knew this day would come.

Our forces have been gathered in Darnassus, though many of them have already set sail for Silithus. Meet with Shandris Feathermoon and alert her of the Warchief's presence.

Elune be with you, <Player Name>.

<Captain Delarym Summermoon appears>

Quote

Captain Delaryn Summermoon says: Shan'do! I came as quickly as I could! I saw the Warchief headed towards Zoram'gar oupost.

Malfurion Stormrage says: She has come for us, Delaryn. The Warchief has come to capture the World Tree.

Captain Delaryn Summermoon says: Our troops, Shan'do -- Tyrande sent them to defend our outpost in Silithus days ago.

You learn that most of the Alliance troops have been sent to Silithus and the Alliance may be outnumbered and not able to defend Teldrassil. Go to Darnassus and find Shandris Feathermoon to tell her that the Horde have invaded Darkshore.

Quote

Shandris Feathermoon says: We must take action! Sentinels, forward face! Fourth Fleet, you are to reinforce the southern border of Darkshore! Bring the Glaive Throwers! Fifth Fleet, create a ley line at the Wildbend River! Rouse our allies at the Grove of the Ancients! Hippogryph Archers, come with me -- we will regroup in Lor'danel and remain vigilant as a mobile response unit! That leaves you, hero. Report back to Captain Summermoon and reinforce that border! I have something that can help.

The intro ends here, with the requirements to mount a fey dragon and slay 50 Horde soldiers.

What?      What Horde?   You could count the number of Horde NPCs on the Vindicar and Argus together with one hand.

The game is not representative of what actually happened in the story. All the forces of Azeroth visited Argus. Major ones, that is.

I am extremely pleased they are showing both sides of the initial conflict from both factions (hopefully).  

I said it a while ago they needed a scenario like Lordaeron for both sides, one winning and one losing.  

GG Blizz.  For Reals.

If I die before the end of the WoW storyline, I want my dwarf npc stuck in somewhere in this kind of scenario singing "Here we go, here we go, here we fuckin' go" while spamming /rude and /moon at the Horde

      The race for the top spots is done, even though there are plenty more guilds progressing on N'Zoth. The biggest news since we last checked in was that both the Corruption affixes and N'Zoth himself were nerfed, and according to the top guilds, when you add both nerfs together N'Zoth got a bit easier. He received a 5% overall nerf and the Thought Harvesters did as well, while the Corruption effect (mainly Echoing Void) nerfs only accounted for around 2-3% of Limit and Method's total damage, and that number significantly drops off for lower ranked guilds, as they won't have had as good gear (with the possible exception of some Asian guilds).
      What that all ended up meaning is that only our Bronze medalist, Pieces, actually downed the Old God before the nerf, with 4 through 10 all getting the slightly easier version. It's a big accomplishment in any case and was hard fought, so let's take a look at the final standings:

      There we have it, one US guild at the very top, 5 EU guilds and Asia staking their claim once more with 40% of the top 10. We did have an upset on the charts however, as Alpha, who have been the top Asian guild for quite a while now and also lead the way throughout Ny'alotha, were beaten in the end by JTH aka JiTianHong! And the other big news is that the amazingly named FatSharkYes took the 4th spot back for the EU, while raiding quite a bit less than their competition. We've also had some more guilds get to 12/12 after the top 10 finished up, with Chinese newcomer Hei Jia Ji just missed out on the top ranking slots, followed by aptly named Korean guild KR, Practice from the EU and finally US second, Big Dumb Guild just getting it done today.
      Let's also take a quick look at the viewership for the race, as it's been affected by the change in leaders, and it's also gotten a pretty big bump since the Eternal Palace. We'll check out the week of the final boss kill specifically, as that's the peak in viewership, and N'Zoth actually saw a big increase from Azshara, but with a different layout. Let's start with the kill-week viewership for Eternal Palace, courtesy of The Esports Observer:

      And now Ny'alotha:

      As you can see Method's event stream kept pretty much the same presence, but the big addition was Complexity Limit GM Max's stream which came through to increase the number of watched hours by almost 50%! Complexity's own event stream wasn't that watched, as the point of focus in the race was Max's stream as Limit was leading the way from pretty much the very beginning of the race, and his stream offered the entire unedited guild communications.
      Finally in this conclusion of race-related events we have a big shakeup for the two top guilds, as Naowh, Limit's main tank for this raid has announced that he's going to be joining Method! In case you weren't aware, Naowh is an EU player and was originally a part of Method's EU MDI team, but joined Limit for Ny'alotha progress.
      The actually bigger news here came with Method GM Sco's post regarding this matter, stating that either he or Justwait will likely be passing their tank spot to Naowh in Shadowlands and will "support the guild from outside the raid during the next RWF". Whether this is referring to the role Limit GM Max took this time around or something different remains to be seen. Here's Sco and Naowh's full quotes:

      And so another race has come to a close and it was a very eventful one, seeing a seismic shift in the raiding world as the US is back on top after an 8 year absence. Limit have been working on this for a long time and it seems the partnership with Complexity was that final push they needed to get there. Battle for Azeroth still ended up being Method dominated, however, with the guild taking 3 out of the 5 raids, with Pieces taking the short Crucible of Storms and now Limit making things interesting with the Ny'alotha win. This marks Shadowlands as a particularly interesting race, with both guilds now having esports organizations behind them and Method being behind for once, so it'll be a thrill to find out if they can recover from this one.
      You can check out all our Ny'alotha progress summaries here, if you want a refresher on the race and all that happened.

      This week's bonus event is Burning Crusade Timewalking! Complete 5 Timewalking dungeons for the weekly quest to receive a piece of gear from Normal difficulty Ny'alotha, the Waking City.
      Timewalking dungeons drop item level 425 loot. You can get item level 445 loot from Black Temple Timewalking. You can obtain Arsenal: The Warglaives of Azzinoth on your Demon Hunter if you earned the Warglaives of Azzinoth prior. Reins of the Infinite Timereaver has a small chance to drop from all Timewalking bosses as Personal Loot. Blizzard (Source)
      ILLIDAN AWAITS
      Head to Outland to face Illidan and his cohorts once more in The Black Temple!
      The Black Temple raid is available throughout the Burning Crusade Timewalking event. The difficulty is set to Normal and, like any Normal level raid, will not be available through Raid Finder. To take on this challenge, you’ll need to get your guild or a group of friends together, or head to Group Finder > Premade Groups. The raid scales for your group size (between 10 — 30 players) and your level and gear will be scaled back to match the raid’s challenges.
      Want to relive the time you first defeated Teron Gorefiend? Face (face, face) the Reliquary of Souls once more? Witness the showdown between Maiev and Illidan before the final fight? Now’s your chance. Inside you can earn transmog sets, the pets you need for Raiding With Leashes III, a Music Roll: The Burning Legion, and gear drops. And for Demon Hunters, there’s the enticing possibility of obtaining the legendary Warglaives of Azzinoth. Are you, this time, prepared?
      DUNGEONS IN THE BURNING CRUSADE TIMEWALKING
      All week, open Group Finder (default hotkey: i) and then select Dungeon Finder and Timewalking in the Type dropdown. When you hit ‘Find Group’, you’ll be matched up with other players and sent to one of the following Heroic dungeons:
      The Arcatraz The Black Morass Magister’s Terrace Mana-Tombs Shattered Halls The Slave Pens Your character and items will be scaled down to a power level fitting for the challenge at hand, but bosses will yield loot appropriate for your natural level. Timewalking dungeons also have a chance to drop items that usually drop when you run them on Heroic, and you’ll earn reputation with a faction that is interested in the dungeon. For example, when you Timewalk through The Slave Pens, you’ll earn reputation with the Cenarion Expedition, which could open access to purchasing the Cenarion War Hippogryph mount.
      Look for the following all week long:
      Chronicler Shoopa in Zuldazar or Chronicler Toopa in Boralus has a quest for you has a quest for you. Or, if you forget to pick it up there, you can start it from within the Adventure Journal. Quest requirement: Complete 5 Timewalking dungeons. Rewards: Artifact Power and one loot box containing a piece of gear from Normal difficulty Ny'alotha, the Waking City. EVERY WEEK
      The Bonus Events system consists of a rotating schedule of different activities, currently scheduled to run each week beginning on Tuesdays. Each Bonus Event grants a passive bonus to a particular game activity and offers a once-per-event quest with a noteworthy reward for accomplishing a related goal. The in-game calendar can serve as your one-stop reference for the event schedule. The Adventure Guide also offers a direct link to active Bonus Events, allowing you to easily accept any associated quests.

      We have another short batch, featuring the N'Zoth and Jaina mounts finally dropping in pairs with resets after some issues last week, as well as Rajani and Uldum Accord paragon caches being turn-inable once more, and a quest fix and Classic getting a tweak that improves performance of a mod.
      February 18 (source)
      Items and Rewards
      Fixed an issue that prevented Lady Jaina Proudmoore and N’Zoth the Corruptor from dropping mounts when defeated on Mythic difficulty. Developers’ note: Last week we made a change to increase the mount rewards from defeating these bosses from 1 to 2. However, the hotfix caused an issue that prevented any mounts from dropping, so we’ve reverted it back to the previous iteration as a temporary fix (1 mount rewarded). These bosses will drop 2 mounts with restarts in each region. Quests
      Eligible players can again turn in “Supplies from the Rajani ” or “Supplies from the Uldum Accord ” for Paragon Cache rewards. WoW Classic
      Fixed a performance issue resulting from communications initiated by the Real Mob Health add-on. Please uninstall the current version of this add-on.
      Previous Hotfixes

      To prevent players from quickly killing world bosses, Blizzard recently added spawn protection for Nalak and Rukhmar, meaning the bosses will be immune to damage for a few seconds after they are attacked so that more players can tag them.
      Similar to Sha of Anger (Reins of the Heavenly Onyx Cloud Serpent) and Galleon (Son of Galleon's Saddle), spawn protection has been enabled for Nalak and Rukhmar.
      Nalak can be found in Isle of Thunder (Pandaria) and has a chance to drop Reins of the Thundering Cobalt Cloud Serpent.
      "This is a descendant of the irascible Nalak. Lightning erupts from its scales and arcs over the saddle. Dare you sit?"

      Rukhmar can be found in Spires of Arak (Draenor) and has a small chance to drop Solar Spirehawk.
      "Looking into the eyes of this mystical beast is like peering into the heart of the sun. Goggles are recommended when you're riding."

      Lady Jaina Proudmoore was not dropping any Glacial Tidestorms on Mythic difficulty after they buffed the drop rate to two mounts per run. As a result, she has been reverted to only drop 1 mount until the underlying issue gets fixed.
      Blizzard is currently investigating a bug that affects Mythic Jaina in the Battle of Dazar'alor raid and she now only drops one Glacial Tidestorm until further notice.
      Customer Support won't be granting additional mounts while the drop rate is reverted, according to the official support page.
      Blizzard (Source)
      We should have received two mounts after today's hotfix, however after we kill Jaina we receive no mount at all.
      We identified an issue were Lady Jaina Proudmoore was not dropping any Glacial Tidestorm mounts on Mythic difficulty. She has been reverted to now drop only 1 mount again while the underlying issue is investigated.

      Customer Support will not be granting additional mounts while the drop rate is reverted.
      In the latest round of hotfixes, Blizzard buffed the drop rate of Glacial Tidestorm and Ny'alotha Allseer to two per run, because it took up to 20 weeks for a full Mythic group to get the mounts for each member. You can find more details here.
