Hall of the Brave Outpost in Orgrimmar

14 posts in this topic

Unlike Dark Iron Dwarves, Mag'har Orcs do not come with an own city. Instead, Blizzard updated Orgrimmar's Valley of Honor with a new outpost called Hall of the Brave that will serve the Mag'har Orcs as a base in the coming expansion.

You can find more Battle for Azeroth news by visiting our Expansion Hub.

In the recruitment scenario, Mag'har Orcs will fight the Lightbound and flee Draenor with Eitrigg. We found the following scenario steps associated with the event:

Tyranny of the Light (Mag'har Orcs Unlock Scenario)

Travel to Beastwatch

  • Go to the aid of Beastwatch! It is the site of an impending assault by the Lightbound.

The Lightbound

  • Defend Beastwatch against the Lightbound assault.

Evermorn Hold

  • Track down Exarch Orelis in Evermorn Hold.

Exarch Orelis

  • Defeat the Lightbound Exarch.

Report to the Warchief

  • Return to Grommash Hellscream at Beastwatch.

Defense at Beastwatch Tower

  • Use the turret at the top of Beastwatch Tower to defend the Mag'har.

Narrow Escape

  • Escape Draenor with Eitrigg and the Mag'har.

Orders from Grommash

  • Await orders from Grommash.

Return to the Warchief

  • Return to Warchief Hellscream at Beastwatch.

Hall of the Brave

There are plenty of grunts, training dummies and other mobs in the hall. The top floor has two Battlemasters and an Experience Eliminator. Here are some screenshots of the zone.

Mag'har Orcs will be the first Horde Allied Race in Battle for Azeroth. In order to unlock them, you must complete Horde's War Campaign (Ready for WarReady for War) that gradually unlocks by increasing reputation with the Honorbound faction.

Not much, but it's the same as with Dark Irons, reusing existing location and adding npcs to it. Interesting how this scenario is going to turn out, if events from it will have any meaning later (lightbound draenei and orcs coming from alternate Draenor to our Azeroth after mag'har?).

The light has always been questionable. It was like the entire point with "The light sees one path, and refuses to accept any other"

The core concept is that morality is subjective.

With the conflict of light and void becoming the major topic (apart from the faction war) I actually like what they‘re doing.
The light is good is just way too boring.

No, the light has not always been questionable, whatsoever. The light has always been objectively good. It doesn't corrupt and it doesn't take control or try to tempt you with power. It heals wounds and cleanses sickness and just makes you feel all warm and fuzzy.

What we see right now is Blizzard trying to jump on the current trend of "morally grey" storytelling and in the process uprooting, retconning and twisting the established narrative and failing spectacularly because the actual talent of the writing department who cares about the universe they created has left. 

The story portion of World of Warcraft reminds me of one of those longrunning TV shows, begging for a mercy but keeps raking in the views so the showrunners keep it going even though is should've been laid to rest 5 seasons ago. Not saying that the game itself is bad, but the actual story is horrendously bad and the Warcraft universe has been hammered and mangled into an unrecognizable shape, a shadow of it's former self.

The Warcraft universe was the first fantasy universe i got heavily invested in and it does make me sad to see where it's at today and even sadder to see the direction in which it is headed. I'll definitely keep playing the game but the story has lost me, i can only take so much fanfiction-tier writing before i snap. Just now waiting to see them dig up the corpse of Uther and ruin his story as well and i assume Arthas is next in line.

That's another thing i have to mention, the warcraft writers of today just can't seem to be able to come up with anything new or interesting that makes sense, they just need to keep recycling the past. The story of Uther is an example of a great character with a good story with a beginning and an end(and a good story needs a beginning and an end) and i'm gonna be real peeved if they decide to go back and dig him up. Once you start ressurecting dead characters left and right death loses it's meaning and impact and it really compromises the entire integrity of the universe.

I'm quite certain the cinematic with illidan and his 'manufactured destiny' was one of the single greatest pieces written for this game, IMO.  

The entire void/light "dichotomy" with Alleria explained it all, and honestly it makes perfect sense.  Illidan was on the one true path, according to Xe'ra, and she was going to make sure he stayed on it, no matter what.

Honestly a little disappointed with this myself. I’ve never been a fan of the design style of Orgrimmar. All the spikes and ugly buildings never were my thing. If they had to put them in an existing city, I think Thunder Bluff would have been a better option. Caters more to the shamanistic lifestyle of the Mag’har.

Everyone is evil in blizz's eye. Every faction gets to be good for awhile then bad. This is how the void will become dominant so the heroes will have to fight it off.

Illidan would like to have words with you about X'era.

This would have merit if undead was never a thing to start with. But it's been that way since Warcraft 3. Perhaps it's time you got caught up with the story.

If you think you can do a better job, then apply as a story writer to Blizzard. It's Blizzard's story to tell. I am so sick and tired of so-called fans whining that they don't like the direction of the story. Get over it. If you truly don't like it, then stop following altogether (which means stop playing the actual game). But I guess it's difficult for you to be open-minded about the direction of the story and only like black/white storytelling (which is generally boring and is incredibly predictable).

What I've been witnessing is that the Shadow/Void energies are becoming somewhat of a weapon against foes, which can be useful as Alleria states (with whom I agree Xd), but then... also the whole Light's symbolism is turning out as a morally doubtful matter, with which I categorically disagree xd

I've always see Blizz' lore as one of a clearly defined boundaries between good and evil, now it seems like those lines are somehow fading out :c Anyway!!! May be some hidden Old Gods insinuation😛:3!! and at the end of the xpack we would see this reestablished. . . who knows 😛

XD I like these debates ^_^! So funny , immersive and interesting :)

      It's fluffy, foxy and white, with some wings to boot. The latest 25$ store mount is the Vulpine Familiar and they're apparently "fiercely intelligent and insatiably curious", whatever that means for a WoW mount. It has a blue saddle and is vaguely horse-shaped, so it should be on the side of the Alliance, but they don't like the Vulpera much, so it's a conflicted mount to say the least.
      Vulpine Familiar (source)

      The fox that won’t trick you
       
      Fiercely intelligent and insatiably curious, this species of fox has travelled the Great Dark Beyond to seek the companionship of the greatest heroes of Azeroth. Vulpine Familiars are born daredevils, and any one of them would make a great companion on your adventures throughout Azeroth and beyond.
      Ride into Battle
      Ready to go!
      Vulpine Familiar will be yours immediately after completing your purchase.
      Everyone gets one!
      Once it’s activated, Vulpine Familiar will be applied to all present and future characters on a single Battle.net account. It will appear in each character’s pet and mount journal.
      Automatically upgrades
      Vulpine Familiar automatically scales to the fastest riding skill known by each character. If they aren’t high enough level to use a flying mount, it will still be usable as a ground mount.
      If you're interested, head on over to the store and get yours.

      Here comes the big one, as yesterday's hotfixes were just a warmup and today we have the main event. We have the profession high item level requirements change from yesterday reverted, Expulsom tweaks for recipes, returning Scouting Maps, another big wave of Azerite Trait changes this time in PvE, while PvP gets a whole lot of class changes and fixes.
      December 12 (source)
      Classes
      Monk Windwalker Good Karma no longer incorrectly increases Touch of Karma 's absorption.  
      Dungeons and Raids
      Uldir Vectis Fixed a bug causing Vectis to cast an extra Contagion prior to casting Liquefy. Items
      Scouting maps that teach flight paths to your alts have returned to the Honorbound and 7th Legion vendors. Island Flotsam will now correctly change to Dented Coin s when a Horde character changes to Alliance. Dented Coins will now correctly change to Island Flotsam when an Alliance character swaps to Horde. Heart of Azeroth Fixed a bug that caused damage effects such as Laser Matrix and Ricocheting Inflatable Pyrosaw to target enemies that were crowd-controlled. Good Karma no longer incorrectly increases Touch of Karma 's absorption. Healing from Glimmer of Light is now correctly modified by Mastery: Lightbringer . Echoing Blades ’ Fan of Knives explosion now always critically hits. Its base damage has been reduced by 75%. Developers’ note: This change allows the trait to scale with the talent Master Assassin in a more reasonable way. The total reduction of the Echo comes out to around 50%, with some variance depending on your Critical Strike chance. Missions
      Fixed a bug that caused Treasure Map missions to expire in 8 hours. They now expire in 72 hours. Developers’ note: This won’t affect missions that are currently in a player’s mission list, only newly-created missions. Professions
      Reverted yesterday's change to require Profession skill for using high iLvl crafted items. A number of recipes have been adjusted so that the Expulsom required by the recipe matches the amount of Expulsom returned when you scrapped the crafted item. Player versus Player
      Fixed a bug that caused players who have earned seasonal Gladiator achievements in Legion: Season 5 and Battle for Azeroth: Season 1 to not earn the Gladiator achievement. Death Knight Unholy Fixed an issue that caused the Zombie summoned by Reanimation (PvP Talent) to have more health than 5. Fixed a bug that caused Necrotic Strike 's initial damage to not be increased by Mastery: Dreadblade . Fixed a bug that could cause Necrotic Strike to apply too large of a healing absorb against non-player targets. Fixed a bug that caused the heal generated by Life and Death (PvP Talent) to be a critical heal. Fixed a bug that caused the heal of Life and Death to be larger than 10% of a heal cast on a target with your Festering Wound . Paladin Holy Cleanse the Weak will no longer incorrectly cause Cleanse to go on cooldown when it removes effects from friendly targets. Retribution Templar's Verdict and Divine Storm no longer deal reduced damage to enemy players. Priest Discipline Resolved an issue that caused Power Word: Shield 's value to be lower than intended when engaged in combat with enemy players. Power Word: Shield absorbs an additional 10% when engaged in combat with enemy players. Developers’ note: Shadow Priests’ Power Word: Shield was unaffected by the above and is unchanged. Shadow Fixed a bug that caused Greater Fade to be removed by Shadowy Apparitions . Rogue Fixed a bug that caused Vanish to end before the normal duration when taking damage and harmful effects. Assassination, Subtlety Fixed a bug that caused Subterfuge to not be applied when attacking during Vanish. World Quests
      Captured Zandalari no longer knockback NPCs during “Azerite Mining ”. Fixed an issue where Fozruk can sometimes fail to grant you World Quest credit. Fixed a bug that could remove a player from their manasaber mount on “Ley Race ”. Previous hotfixes.

      Redditor Makesmashgreatagain noticed after 8.1 went live that ilvl 385 crafted items no longer work if you abandoned the profession used to craft them.
      Update: This was an unintended bug that was recently reverted.
      Placeholder for tweet 1072993206856380416 Emblazoned Deep Sea Breeches now require Zandalari Tailoring (110) as depicted in the screenshot below. The player switched to Alchemy/Enchanting and after Tides of Vengeance, the crafted item was red and gave no stats. The change was omitted from the official patch notes. We don't know at this time if it's just a bug or intended.

      Blizzard recently announced improvements to Azerite Armor acquisition from Mythic+. You can find more details here. Heritage Armor will be added for non-Allied Races; Blood Elves & Dwarves are first on the list. There's no reputation grind behind this. If you're at max level and Exalted with Ironforge/Blood Elves, you can start the quest and complete a scenario to get your Heritage Armor. Reputation Paragon for BfA factions is coming. Champions of Azeroth reputation will be made account-wide. Incursions are a new feature similar to Legion assaults. Darkshore Warfront (Night Elves vs Forsaken theme) The outdoor zone will be updated just like Arathi Highlands with new quests, rares, etc. War Campaign continues with the Alliance leading a direct strike at the Zandalari Fleet. We can expect two new raids in 8.1: Siege of Zuldazar is a nine-boss raid where the foe is the opposing faction. Alliance players will join Jaina and her forces to fight their way up to the pyramid to confront Rastakhan. Horde players will try to defend the pyramid, fighting Jaina in the High Seas as the final boss. Crucible of Storms is a two-boss raid located under Shrine of the Storm that hints at Queen Azshara. It's Battle for Azeroth's "Trial of Valor" raid. Allied Races: Kul Tirans and Zandalari Trolls will become available for gameplay after the Siege of Zuldazar raid. You can find more details about how to unlock them here.
