Battle for Azeroth War Campaign Official Recap

Recommended Posts

EINHASp.jpg
 

Blizzard have just posted a big recap of the entire war campaign, with a video combining all the relevant cinematics (although unfortunately skipping any in-game ones), as well as an extensive summary of all the quest steps. It's a solid recap if you want to remind yourself of everything that's happened, or if you glossed over a few steps, or even if you're just interested in how the story has developed if you've only been checking the cinematics.

We have a rundown of both faction campaigns, so make sure to read up on the other side if you're only finished one.

The War Campaign has reached its epic conclusion in the most recent content update, but if you haven’t completed it yet, we have a handy recap to catch you up to speed.

 

Horde

At level 110 and after you’ve completed the opening quest lines of Battle for Azeroth, you're introduced to the new War Campaign and begin the road to opening new Footholds over time in the opposite faction’s territories.

Your first quest is The War Campaign, which introduces you to War Resources. After the quest Mission From the Warchief, you're introduced to the mission table, which will allows you to begin sending followers you gain through your adventures out to carry out missions.

Access to Footholds will become available as you level through Zuldazar, Nazmir, and Vol’dun. At each key point in your journey (level 110, 114, and 118) you’ll be able to establish a new Foothold in Drustvar, Stormsong Valley, and Tiragarde Sound. At level 120, you’ll begin focusing more on reaching reputation milestones with The Honorbound.

Requires: All War Campaign chapters through Tides of Vengeance Part 2

Horde players begin the new leg of the War Campaign in their newly established hub in Nazjatar—Newhome. Lor’themar Theron has a quest for you—Visions of Danger. A spiritwalker has had a vision in which Baine Bloodhoof is executed. There are two different branches to the story available depending on the choice to remain loyal to Sylvanas or to join Lor’themar Theron and his Allies against her.

Joining the Allies: Stay of Execution.

Lor’themar Theron has declared he’s no longer allied with Sylvanas and sends you to Orgrimmar for the quest Old Allies. Once in Orgrimmar, you’ll meet up with Thrall and Saurfang and begin the quest Stay of Execution where you’ll experience a scenario. Your goal is to rescue Baine Bloodhoof from his imprisonment beneath Orgrimmar.

Loyal to Sylvanas: Stay of Execution

If you’re loyal to Sylvanas, you’ll be sent to let Nathanos Blightcaller know of the treachery at hand. You’ll serve as his spy and follow through on meeting with Saurfang and Thrall in the Stay of Execution scenario. Distracting the Dark Rangers is a slightly different experience for those loyal to Sylvanas though the remaining portion of the scenario plays out the same whether you’re a loyalist or not.

When the Stay of Execution scenario is complete, you’ll be sent once more to report to Nathanos Blightcaller.

Complete the Battle for Azeroth War Campaign

In the 8.2.5 content update, you're able to choose again which side of the Horde’s history you will be on and complete either Old Soldier or Most Loyal to earn the achievement The Fourth War and receive the title, “Veteran of the Fourth War”.

Unfortunately at this point the recap for BFA is "Filler Expansion".

The whole war campaign story was completely lifted from Garrosh's Mists of Pandaria line, you could make a powerpoint on the a to b to c storylines that were replicated in order.    For all of Blizzard's "Not Garrosh 2.0" we got EXACTLY Garrosh 2.0, down to ending with a Siege of Orgrimmar and Garroshvannas escaping to appear in another plotline's setup.  

The bad part though is this was a POORLY TOLD Garrosh 2.0.    Sylvannas, the Brilliant Strategist and Manipulator, can't hold her tongue and yells in "Atmosphereic Rending" voice that she hates the horde because she got a small cut on her face.    THAT somehow ends the war, 10 minutes later Anduin is making a speech in Orgrimmar.     That's very similar to how the war began in earnest because Sylvannas, who was going to basically take the Nelf homelands as a hostage to prevent a world war, changer her mind in a rage because a dying elf dared cry for her.

Just...damn.    I know Golden was hired well after most of this mess was already set in stone, but I really hope they pick up and dust off the playbook for creating good stories and cohesive Lore for next expansion, this one has been glaring plotholes, a war that somehow became secondary to fighting pirates, blood trolls and some foxes/snakes, and making everyone in charge seem like idiots.

I feel the Golden hired after the fact is a bit of a cover/lie. She's had plenty of time to change things.

See the BIG mistake most people that discuss story and plot make is assume that almost any story can't be fixed with proper writing without touching the events. Unless they literally hired her and then didn't allow her to touch ANY LINE in BfA this is as much her fault as anyone's. You could literally keep every single element of the plot intact and still have it not be this retarded by simply rewriting some dialogue and minor details. The story would end up in the same place, but you wouldn't hate what they've done with all the characters. I'm not going to do one of those reddit style posts where i actually write that story (but I really, REALLY could, and so could most people) but I'm 100000% sure it's doable and not even that god damn hard either.

To hope that Blizzard will ever again have a decent story in their games is just stupid. These are the people that OKed Diablo 3 AND Starcraft 2 as far as stories go, how in the hell can we expect them to ever tell anything but a generic cliched 14-year-old level of "heroes beat the villains" crap?

Luckily for me, I'm mostly focused on the game part of games these days, or I'd have had to kill myself after enduring the Borderlands 3 story and writing.

This is probably my biggest gripe about this expansion so far. They never committed to the idea of an all out 4th War. It never was a war. We had two or three larger battles but apart from that just the same old border skirmishes we had seen since Cata. And for something that "changes everything", the Azerite really did a whole lot of nothing apart from slightly sparklier explosions.

This was the perfect stage for a Cold War situation, complete with M.A.D. weaponry and a proxy war on the new continent(s).

If they had made the faction assaults pop up all over Azeroth (like the Legion pre-patch event, same "wave with boss" format instead of the world quest oriented assaults that came later in Legion and now in BfA), it would have been enough to convey a sense of total war. They could have just used the current format of assaults as the 7th Legion emissary so there was world quests in the current content that played along side. That's probably my only real gripe with the presentation of the Fourth War.

More warfronts would have been fun for me too, but unfortunately it looks like the player reception of them stopped future investment (similar to the garrisons from WoD). I really thought both of them were tight, immersive experiences and acted as perfect playable cinematics and story-telling mediums. I feel like there was room for one more to accurately represent the stages of the war built into the patch cycle.

By the way, the brilliance of The Reckoning is not that it erodes Sylvanas's character. It is in Saurfang understanding that she IS using the Horde and all he needs to do is push her to reveal it. For her, it's all fun and games until Saurfang lands several blows - verbally and finally, physically. Realizing that despite all her power she isn't invulnerable, she loses interest in toying with all of us and renounces the ruse in favor of action. As she has transcended BEING us, she now has transcended even the NEED for us as pawns.

Your last line is interesting to me - furthermore I suggest that it was a missed opportunity to use both faction leaders as raid bosses: the citizens of Azeroth band together to stop their warmongering leaders, defuse their ultimate weaponry, and end the cycle of hatred collectively.

Story can change quite far into development, like during beta (removal of Wrathion from Legion is one such example). It's important to note Golden isn't the only writer. Things can sometimes get messy, if there are different people contributing. Steve Danuser is one of them, and he has been rather heavily criticized for his work.

I see a lot of people talking about the decline of WoW for a variety of reasons, so here's some food for thought: the problem with the perception of modern WoW is in part due to the advanced cynicism and loss of idealism long-term players have found in life at large as they progress through adulthood. Because WoW has been apart of our lives for so long, it suffers the same deflation/depreciation factor that other portions of and relationships within our everyday life do.

That is to say, it's not entirely the fault of developers that the game is less appealing now. I think after 15 years, it's difficult to keep people satisfied with something that is by in large unchanged (at core concept) from its conception. Like a marriage, our relationship with the game goes through highs & lows, often with mountains being made from molehills. We love deeply and rage hard. I think Blizzard knows this, which is why they've paired the release of Classic alongside what appears to be mounting and fundamental changes to dynamic within the "retail" version of the game. By leaning into the division within the player base (regarding the tones & themes of the gameplay/narrative design & execution), they have created an Azeroth that appeals to players seeking the original experience and one for those looking to engage the WoW universe under the lens of modern game design. Essentially, an open marriage between Blizzard and the player base that allows for freedom within commitment. 

As a result, I think they will be able to better create worlds for both sets of perspectives and dissent over their decisions should be reduced (maybe).

The only thing I can foresee now is the division of the Alliance through Tyrande and Genn Greymane where the Alliance players will be given a set of choices to make just as the Horde players in the previous patches with Saurfang or Sylvannas. For this will eventually start the possibility of the 5th war. Unfortunately these 'choices' are just basically an illusion.   There is no dire consequence for these choices that the players are given to make unlike the choices you choose from games like Mass Effect, SWOTR, or Dragon Age for your character.  Instead, for BFA, you are given an extra cutscene with very limited dialogue.

The story within itself as a whole in BFA has been barely luke warm with minor/limited tidbits of info here and there for players to pick up on.   I think Golden and Blizzard could of done a better/proper job of story telling with a better diverse set of world dynamics, consequences, and actions to actually get players hooked.  Integrating story more strongly into warfronts, assaults, island expeditions, along with select zones in the Eastern Kingdom and Kalimdor would of been a better start imo.

The lore of WoW has been going down the hill ever since Metzen left Blizzard.

Notice how class design has too *cough* . WoD was the very last one I believe and class design theory crafting with the talents multistrike etc where still amazing. After that it became an ever so pruned shitfest.

      The Gallywix boosting community is pretty well known in WoW, featuring many players from top guilds engaging in gold boosts, but now it seems they've been dabbling in real money gold selling as well, and Blizzard isn't having it. As the actions are against the Terms of Service, Blizzard has started banning accounts related to the real money boosting activities. While the focus is on Gallywix, the investigation is still ongoing and might target other RMT boosting services as well. It is unclear whether the "ban" term used by Blizzard refers to permanent account closures, but that seem most likely.
      Gallywix Bans (source)
      After performing a thorough investigation, we’ve identified that the Gallywix boosting organization has been taking part in gold selling for real money. Real money trading – also known as RMT – is a serious violation of our End-User License Agreement and is not tolerated, therefore we’ve begun taking action and have banned accounts in North America and Europe that were associated with this group and taking part in the real money trading transactions.
      These actions have primarily targeted the Gallywix organization so far, but our investigations are ongoing and additional accounts involved with running this organization may be banned in the future.
      Going forward, accounts may receive actions if they are found to be involved in future transactions with Gallywix or are actively advertising it.
      Thank you for your understanding.

      Ivan Kuzkin is back with another mix , with a bit more focus on the PvE side of WoW esports, with Mythic+ getting a prominent chunk, followed by the Arena action similar to what's we've already seen, but featuring a brand new first-person outlaw Rogue PoV. This is all built with IKedit's trademark amazingly fluid animations and crazy armor effects any warrior would kill for (and kill with, as it happens).

      Yesterday, we previewed Great Vault, the new weekly chest of Shadowlands, but many players were confused about how the rewards from Mythic Dungeons will be calculated, so here's are some clarifications.
      To unlock more loot choices in the Great Vault, you must complete the following objectives related to Mythic Dungeons:
      Slot #1: Complete 1 Mythic Dungeon Slot #2: Complete 5 Mythic Dungeons Slot #3: Complete 15 Mythic Dungeons If you complete 15 Mythic Dungeons in a week, you will be able to choose from up to 3 items.
      Your reward is based on the lowest level of your top 1 (Slot #1), 5 (Slot #2), and 15 (Slot #3) runs. Redditor zawyer90 posted an image and explained how the system works, so helping your friend with a Mythic +5 run will not affect your weekly item choices.

      We have a bunch of retail and Classic hotfixes today, leaning heavily on the Classic side, with the Ectoplasmic Distiller fix and epic Draconic pages.
      July 31 (source)
      tems and Rewards
      Corrupted Items Reverted the recent change made on the interaction between Fist of Justice and Ineffable Truth for Holy and Protection Paladins. WoW Classic
      The Ectoplasmic Distiller quest item no longer generates threat. Developers’ note: Ordinarily we err on the side of authenticity when it comes to clever use of mechanics in Classic, even if we believe the original development team would have made a change given the same information we now have. The Ectoplasmic Distiller presents a rare exception mainly due to its severity: this new discovery of an unintended mechanic would completely trivialize most threat gameplay in raids for the remainder of Classic if left unchecked, including upcoming bosses in Ahn’Qiraj and Naxxramas. The pages for the quest “Draconic for Dummies” are now Epic quality. Developers’ note: We’re changing the item quality on "Draconic for Dummies" quest pages to Epic (purple) so that they'll be easier to distribute to the correct person in raids using Group Loot or Master Looter.
