Official Preview of Shadowlands Adventures by Blizzard

Recommended Posts

The Mission Table has been upgraded in Shadowlands to Adventures, an auto-battler that you will be able to play through the WoW Companion App and here is the official preview of the feature.

Blizzard Logo(Source)

Prepare to put your tactical skills to the test. In the expansion’s new Adventures feature, you’ll send your allies into the Shadowlands to tackle unique challenges for your chosen Covenant. You’ll need to be strategic about how you take on these combat puzzles, including who you’ll send to face them and how you’ll use their skills to claim victory.

You’ll also be able to check in on and continue your Adventures offline with the WoW Companion App.

A NEW WAY TO ADVENTURE

Once you’ve joined your chosen Covenant, you’ll be able to begin undertaking Adventures from the dedicated table within your Sanctum. Through the interface, you’ll be able to view available Adventures, the associated rewards, the cost to undertake them, the state of your units, and how challenging the enemies are within that Adventure. You’ll want to choose a solid mix from your Adventurers, Soulbinds, and troops to create a party of up to 5 units to deal with the various threats.

With the introduction of Soulbinds in Shadowlands, we wanted to find a compelling way to bring their individual personality traits into as many aspects of the game as possible, including Adventures. Similar to previous high-profile personalities in past expansions’ Missions, Soulbinds will be able to lead the charge while expressing their own motivations and goals through the Adventures system.

MAKING YOUR PLAY

When it’s time to prepare for battle, positioning matters. You’ll need to use strategy in how you place your Adventurers to take on the enemies they’ll engage with and counter their abilities. For example, you may want to make sure your toughest allies are placed in the front of the formation, with more fragile allies placed toward the back so damage to them is minimized and they can use their ranged abilities.

At the completion of an Adventure, you’ll be able to see the results through a replay of the battle. You’ll want to pay close attention to which units performed well, which you may want to reposition, or which you might want to exclude in future similar fights to make the most of them in your next encounters.

To the victor goes the spoils! Should your troops defeat the encounter, you’ll collect your earned rewards including pets, mounts, gold, Anima, and more.

RECRUITING NEW ALLIES

Each Covenant provides a variety of 15 unique allies, including the Soulbinds that you’ll meet, 6 Adventurers that you’ll recruit through Renown, and an additional 6 who can be rescued from within Torghast, Tower of the Damned. Four universal Adventurers can also be recruited by any Covenant from within Torghast, bringing your potential allies to 19.

As your allies progress through the various challenges that Adventures present, they’ll grow stronger, allowing them to take on more challenging Adventures for even better rewards.

Check back on the official site in the future to learn more about the updated WoW Companion App.

I don't know... this system seems so unnecessary for me. 

I'm sure it will be point and click for those that want to gloss over it, and there will be plenty of depth for those who are excited for a cool mini-game (as I am).

The entire game is unnecessary and there are many different paths to enjoy it. Which are you most looking forward to in Shadowlands?

as the follower mission tables are right now.

Those new adventure seem a lot more interesting, having the holy trinity of group building instead of the 3 follower classes we have right now is far better as well. Seems like i will get much more engaged in building the right groups. and that will cause me to care for the followers more.

I dont know how it will turn out in the end, but this seems cool so far. 🙂

Oh, yeah, totally agree. I can't wait for the quest actually, and the new dungeons and raid. Sorry the mad mood yesterday, today I can say its better than the actual system

Never liked this stuff taken straight out from mobile games. This still looks pretty dull, I would rather see mission tables removed.

      The reigning and two time MDI champions, Meeres, Naowh and Gingi, formerly Wunderbar/Method EU, now Echo,  have been poking around the Shadowlands beta Mythic+ content and have come upon a very specific strategy against some specific affixes, which might become the M+ meta if things stay as they are on the beta right now. The addition of a second tank was due to the difficulty of the Tyrannical affix (+ Grievous, but mostly the former, as it's problematic with other affixes as well), as the keys were really very problematic for even the best M+ players in the world. Tyrannical is really am issue as it stands on the beta right now, and the 2 tank solution isn't good for the game, according to them, but you should check out the video, as it's short and very informative.

      It seems a new round of beta invites has arrived, or Blizzard has amped up the intensity of the handing out of access, as many players have noticed and encouraged other to check their inboxes on reddit! The number of players reporting getting an invite indicates this is a particularly large wave. In case you also just got into the beta, you can check out our Shadowlands guides to get a better grip on all the content available.
      Also, as noticed by twitter user @DoumStorm, also check your launcher first, as the mails tend to be slower than the invites themselves!
      Here are some of the responses to getting the key, with some interesting takes:

      This week's beta class changes appear to be starting and Warriors get a change to a powerful legendary item, as the Mishapen Mirror gets nerfed. We recently talked about this legendary in particular in out Protection Warrior spec highlights, and it's was one of two top pics for the spec.
      September 30 (source)
      Hello.
      In this week’s build of the Shadowlands Beta, the Misshapen Mirror legendary has been changed. It now increases Spell Reflect duration by 60% and only affects your nearest ally.
      Previously, this legendary was proving to be stronger than intended.
      Thank you very much for your feedback.

      Death Knights get two Covenant abilities changes this week on the Beta, as Abomination Limb and Shackle the Unworthy get target caps, buffs and more.
      September 30 (source)
      In this week’s new build of the Shadowlands Beta, we’ve updated two covenant abilities, Abomination Limb and Shackle the Unworthy.
      Abomination Limb has been target capped at 5, and its damage has increased by 15%. The grip has also been updated so it may only pull the same target every 4 seconds. This change was made to prevent it from encouraging the Death Knight to repeatedly walk out of range and then pull the same target.
      We’ve also added a new functionality to the ability that grants Bone Shield charges, Rime, or Runic Corruption (based on spec) the first time the Limb pulls an enemy (this only occurs once). We hope this change will broaden the usage of the ability outside of PvP.
      Shackle the Unworthy has had its damage increased by 15%, but no longer has its cooldown reduced when spending runes. Instead of the cooldown reduction, it now works as follows: “While Shackle the Unworthy is active on an enemy, your direct-damage attacks that spend runes have a 50% chance to spread Shackle the Unworthy to a nearby enemy”.
      We hope this change gives the ability a more active playstyle and creates more situations where it might be more useful than its previous iteration.
      Thanks for the continued feedback, and we look forward to your thoughts on these recent changes.

      No Assassination changes this week either, as Outlaw gets the focus, with Blade Flurry buffs and more.
      September 30 (source)
      In this week’s build of the Shadowlands Beta, we have some notable changes for Outlaw Rogues.
      Since both Assassination and Subtlety can apply poisons in AoE relatively easily, we want Outlaw to have access to similar utility. As such, Blade Flurry hits can now apply poisons to any enemies hit.
      We’ve also changed the Between the Eyes debuff. It no longer gives you increased Critical Hit Damage against the target; it now gives you increased Critical Strike Chance against the target. This allows Blade Flurry to spread the damage bonus of this debuff to secondary target.
      Thanks again for your testing and feedback!
