wow Warlords of Draenor Alpha: Filling Your Toy Box

8 posts in this topic

Learn how to get all of the Toys in Warlords of Draenor!

Looking for something to pass the time while waiting for the upcoming expansion? Already have your Legendary Cloak and want something else to grind for? How about collecting all of the currently obtainable items which will be changed to Toys in the upcoming expansion! Think your backpack (and bank) can handle it?


We've put together a list of all of the items currently classified as "Toy" in the Warlords of Draenor Alpha. For ease of use, this list is sorted by source of obtaining the Toy. Of course, as this is the current list from the latest Alpha build, the list is subject to change. Items will certainly be added in later Alpha builds, so please keep in mind that this list is in no way indicative of the final Toy Box we will see once the expansion goes live! Please also be aware that some of these items are no longer obtainable. However, there is always a possibility that Blizzard could retroactively re-award or otherwise add a method of re-acquiring these items if they have been deleted. For example, they could mail another inv_misc_enggizmos_20.jpgCrashin' Thrashin' Flyer Controller to all players who have earned the corresponding Feat of Strength. We'll have to wait and see!


Check out our guide detailing where and how to obtain all of the current Toy Box items! Bear in mind that there's are quite a few potential items which are not yet classified as Toys. We'll be updating this guide as more items are added to the Toy Box in future Alpha builds!


Be sure to also check out our preview of the Toy Box UI, which shows off the in-game UI and explains the features!



Achievement


These Toys are earned upon completion of various achievements, some of which require a bit more work than others. Avid Pet Battlers will probably appreciate the Safari Hat being added to the Toy Box!
  • inv_holiday_brewfestbuff_01.jpgHonorary Brewmaster Keg
    This item is awarded by the achievement inv_misc_archaeology_vrykuldrinkinghorn.Pub Crawl, which requires the player to complete a variety of achievements within the Brewmoon Festival, Unga Ingoo, A Brewing Storm and Greenstone Village scenarios. The achievements can be earned on any difficulty, but all meta-achievements must be earned on the same character.
  • inv_helm_cloth_petsafari_a_01.jpgSafari Hat
    This item is awarded by the achievement inv_pet_achievement_defeatpettamer.jpgTaming the World, which requires the player to defeat 40 Master Pet Tamers in Pet Battles across the world.
  • inv_misc_book_11.jpgThe Schools of Arcane Magic - Mastery
    This item is awarded by the achievement inv_misc_book_11.jpgHigher Learning, which requires the player to find and read all of the volumes of "The Schools of Arcane Magic" found in Dalaran. The books are random spawns and this can be a time-consuming activity, as the books will only spawn every couple of hours.
  • inv_misc_coin_18.jpgTitanium Seal of Dalaran
    This item is awarded by the achievement inv_misc_coin_02.jpgThe Coin Master, which requires the player to complete three Fishing meta achievements. The player must fish every single character's lucky coin out of the Dalaran fountain, so this can be another time-consuming Toy to earn!


Archaeology


All archaeology Toys can be randomly discovered when completing artifacts for their respective branch. All Toys are Rare quality discoveries. Do keep in mind that certain branches of Archaeology will have minimum skill level requirements in order to access dig sites to survey. Good luck!

Night Elf Archeology (75 Archaeology Skill Required)Dwarf Archeology (75 Archaeology Skill Required)Draenei Archaeology (300 Archaeology Skill Required)Nerubian Archaeology (350 Archaeology Skill Required)Tol'Vir Archeology (450 Archaeology Skill Required)

Dropped by NPCs


These Toy items have a rare chance to drop from mobs around the world (mostly in Pandaria). Most of the items have specific drop sources, which are typically rare spawns found in Mists of Pandaria zones. To make locating the mobs and farming these drops easier, the drop lists have been organized by the general location of the source mob's spawn.

Mists of Pandaria Toy Drops
Valley of the Four WindsKun-Lai SummitDread WastesVale of Eternal BlossomsTimeless Isle Toy DropsIsle of Thunder Toy DropsNon-Pandaria Toy Drops

Miscellaneous Sources


These Toys didn't really fit best in any other category due to the special circumstances of being obtained. Some of these toys are significantly harder to acquire (inv_ingot_04.jpgUnsealed Chest items, I'm looking at you)!

Professions


Engineers rejoice! The various crafted teleporters are now considered Toys, and you can easily hotkey your various teleportation Toys and free up some bagspace! It's worth nothing that while the Wormhole Generators are not currently included on this list, there's certainly no reason we can't expect them to be added in a later build.
  • inv_misc_enggizmos_07.jpgDimensional Ripper - Area 52
    Crafted by Engineering. Requires 350 Goblin Engineering to craft and use. Binds when used, can only be used by Goblin Engineers. Will not show up as incomplete in a Gnomish Engineering character's Toy Box.
  • inv_misc_enggizmos_12.jpgUltrasafe Transporter: Toshley's Station
    Crafted by Gnomish Engineering. Requires 350 Gnomish Engineering to craft and use. Binds when used, can only be used by Gnomish Engineers. Will not show up as incomplete in a Goblin Engineering character's Toy Box.
  • inv_misc_enggizmos_07.jpgDimensional Ripper - Everlook
    Crafted by Engineering. Requires 260 Goblin Engineering to craft and use. Binds when used, can only be used by Goblin Engineers. Will not show up as incomplete in a Gnomish Engineering character's Toy Box.
  • inv_misc_enggizmos_12.jpgUltrasafe Transporter: Gadgetzan
    Crafted by Gnomish Engineering. Requires 260 Gnomish Engineering to craft and use. Binds when used, can only be used by Gnomish Engineers. Will not show up as incomplete in a Goblin Engineering character's Toy Box.
  • inv_misc_book_07.jpgRituals of the New Moon
    Crafted by Inscription. Requires 350 Inscription to craft. Binds when equipped, can be used by anyone. When this item is crafted, it creates one of four items. Each item has a different color wolf transformation (Grey, White, Red and Black) and the Toy Box has slots for all four. Players will be able to purchase this item on the Auction House.


Purchased


These Toys can be purchased from vendors for either gold or a special currency. No special reputation is required for these items, making them some of the more relatively accessible Toys.
  • inv_misc_head_clockworkgnome_01.jpgWind-Up Train Wrecker
    This item can be purchased from toy vendors in Orgrimmar, Stormwind and Dalaran for 250 gold. It may also be found in the inv_holiday_christmas_present_01.jpgStolen Present obtainable during the Feast of Winter Veil.
Requires a Special Currency

Questing


These Toys are rewarded from quest chains at various levels. There are quite a few more quest reward items that players would certainly consider a Toy, such as the ever-so-popular inv_misc_gem_variety_02.jpgRainbow Generator and the loveable inv_jewelcrafting_goldenhare.jpgPuntable Marmot. It's worth mentioning that the latter was originally included in the first screenshots revealed of the Toy Box, even though it isn't listed in the current build. Of course, we can expect quite a few additions to the Toy Box, so don't worry if your favorite Toy isn't listed!
  • achievement_reputation_kirintor_offensivKirin Tor Beacon
    Awarded upon completion of the quest The Storm Gathers, which requires the player to travel to the Isle of Thunder. Available to Alliance characters only, and will not show up as incomplete in a Horde character's Toy Box.
  • achievement_faction_sunreaveronslaught.jSunreaver Beacon
    Awarded upon completion of the quest The Storm Gathers, which requires the player to travel to the Isle of Thunder. Available to Horde characters only, and will not show up as incomplete in a Alliance character's Toy Box.
  • inv_qirajidol_war.jpgTime-Lost Figurine
    Drops from Terokk, Level 72 Elite in Terokkar Forest. This mob can only be fought during the quest Terokk's Downfall, which is a Sha'tari Skyguard quest available at Skettis in the Terokkar Forest. To obtain the quest, players must start the quest chain with the quest World of Shadows, available from Severin. The trinket is not a guaranteed drop.


Reputation


These Toys are obtained as rewards from various reputations. Each of these items requires a specific reputation level with its respective faction in order to be purchased. Some may also require specific currencies to be purchased.
  • inv_shirt_guildtabard_01.jpgArgent Crusader's Tabard
    Sold by Dame Evniki Kapsalis in Icecrown for 50 ability_paladin_artofwar.jpg [/wowicon]Champion's Seals. This item can only be purchased once the player has championed all factions of the Argent Tournament, earned Exalted status with as well as the right to represent every Alliance or Horde race's faction in the Argent Tournament. Quite a bit of time is required to obtain this item, as reputation is earned primarily through daily questing, but the daily quests are relatively easy to complete for a max-level character.
  • inv_fishingchair.jpgNat's Fishing Chair
    This item will be mailed to a character upon reaching Best Friends reputation with Nat Pagle. Reputation is earned by turning in rare fish to Nat Pagle in Krasarang Wilds.


Trading Card Game


This items can only be obtained by redeeming codes found on corresponding loot cards from the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game. The cards are only somewhat rare, and while sets will go out-of-print, it's not uncommon to find cards from older sets online on sites such as eBay. Be prepared to pay a bit for some of these items, as the average sale price is around $35.00 per item. You can find listings on WoW TCG Loot.
  • achievement_boss_illidan.jpgDemon Hunter's Aspect
    Redeemable from the loot card "Demon Hunter's Aspect" in the War of the Ancients expansion.

World Event


These Toys can be only be obtained during specific world events. You can check out the in-game calendar (/calendar) to find out the dates and duration of each in-game world event. Many of these items require event-specific currencies which can be earned via daily quests.
  • inv_misc_football.jpgThe Pigskin
    This item is sold by toy vendors found in major cities for 40 gold. It can also be found in the inv_holiday_christmas_present_01.jpgStolen Present rewarded from the daily quest You're a Mean One... This item is only available during Feast of Winter Veil world event.

    This item is sold by event vendors found inside (and outside) of Ironforge and Orgrimmar for 100 inv_misc_coin_01.jpgBrewfest Prize Token. This item is only available during the Brewfest world event.


No Longer Available


There are a handful of items in the current Toy Box that are no longer obtainable. These items were rewards from specific in-game events which have since been removed, so it is not likely that Blizzard will re-introduce any of these items. There is no word yet on whether or not Blizzard will be able to retroactively re-award any of these items, though most of them do have corresponding achievements which can indicate that the item was earned. We will have to see how Blizzard decides to handle this.
  • inv_misc_orb_03.jpgMini Mana Bomb
    This item was awarded to Horde players at the conclusion of the Mists of Pandaria Fall of Theramore launch event.
  • inv_misc_tournaments_symbol_troll.jpgDarkspear Pride

This is a really impressive guide!  I'm going to grind a few of these out myself.

Yes, this really is an excellent topic to bring up, as I was just thinking about some of the things I was going to do until the next expansion comes along. Thank you miyari for taking the time to create such a thorough & complete list, perfect for a 'completionist like myself. I love it!

So many of these toys are actually pretty hard to get! I don't even have the most of them; most of the toys I have aren't on the list yet (but there's no reason they won't be), so I'm not sure if I can yet spare the inventory space. I've long since dumped tons and tons of gear, though, so I technically do have the room, I guess. I always do a mass-purging of items prior to expansions; I'm pretty sure we'll get that extra void storage prior to the expansion release, so that'll certainly help!

Ive been looking for a list such as this, and until now all I have found is screenshots of various pages. I was looking to see if the Brazier of Dancing Flames (purchasable in Midsummer Festival for 350 Burning Blossoms) was in the toy box. From the below screenie I found it was,,, but it may have since been removed... still for the sake of an hour farming the bonfires might be a worthwhile purchase for anyone wanting to complete the toy box.

Yeah, definitely keep in mind that this list is Blizzard's first real sweep since implementing the feature and they're bound to add a ton more items to the Toy Box in future Beta updates, so don't get distraught!

Blessing of the old god is in the toy box in beta but not in your archeology list. You also have a few listed that aren't toys, is that because they will become part of the toy box later on?

Miyari is no longer working with us, so it is unlikely that she will come and answer your question or update the guide sad.png

      Update 2: Blizzard have posted actual numbers for the Convergence of Fates changes. They have been incorporated into the first blue post here.
      Update 1: There have been some new blue posts going even deeper into detail on the matter, check at the bottom of the article for them or click here.
      _________________________________________________________________
      We get specific details and numbers for the upcoming trinket changes, as well as an explanation and specifics on the Crusade nerf, both coming tomorrow with the reset. Still no exact stats for Convergence of Fates, but we get an idea of how it will end up in relation to specific specs and talents. You can check out the previous announcement of the changes here.
      Lore (source)
      In general, we’ve found that our tuning on trinkets which relied on a direct damage or healing effect (as opposed to their raw stats) have come up a bit short this expansion. To help address that, we’re making the following changes:
      Claw of the Crystalline Scorpid: Damage increased by 30%. Arcanogolem Digit: Damage increased by 30%. Entwined Elemental Foci: The amount of Critical Strike, Mastery, and Haste granted by this item’s proc has been increased by 5%. Might of Krosus: Base damage reduced by 25%, but is now always a critical strike. The tooltip for Might of Krosus will display the amount of damage that will result from the critical hit, not the base damage. Also fixed a bug where the cooldown was incorrectly being reduced if Might of Krosus damaged at least 3 targets. Draught of Souls: The Use effect of this trinket now respects the global cooldown. The damage of this trinket is now reduced by 30% for Unholy Death Knights (was reduced by 40%). Designer Notes: Since Draught of Souls deals Shadow Damage, it’s increased by Unholy’s Mastery, which means we needed to reduce its base damage to keep its overall value similar to other classes. It’s currently a little too low, however, so we’re increasing the damage it deals for Unholy. Icon of Rot: Damage increased by 40%. Pharamere's Forbidden Grimoire: Damage increased by 85%. Fury of the Burning Sky: Damage increased by 40%. Star Gate: Damage increased by 30%. Aluriel's Mirror: Healing-over-time amount increased by 140%. Detonation effect reduced by 35%. Designer Notes: Aluriel’s Mirror’s detonation effect is strong when it activates, but hard to rely on. We’re increasing the heal-over-time effect significantly to improve the up-front value of this trinket, and reducing the detonation effect slightly to compensate. Perfectly Preserved Cake: Absorb amount increased by 140%. Etraeus' Celestial Map: The amount of Critical Strike, Mastery, and Haste granted by this item’s proc has been increased by 5%.
      As for Convergence of Fates, we’re spending a little extra time to make sure our changes here are as comprehensive as possible, so we don’t have final numbers yet. However, we can share our overall plan for the changes we intend to make. We intend to reduce its base effectiveness (before talents) for Windwalkers, and increase its base effectiveness for Retribution Paladins and Frost and Unholy Death Knights. Separately, we plan to adjust its effectiveness individually for the following talents:
      Serenity (Windwalker) Crusade (Retribution Paladin) Incarnation: King of the Jungle (Feral Druid) Hungering Rune Weapon (Frost Death Knight) Dark Arbiter (Unholy Death Knight)
       UPDATE:
      Here's the changes we're looking to make for As for Convergence of Fates interaction with some of the throughput cooldowns it affects. These numbers are compared to the trinket's current performance on live, and are not additive with each other.
      Frost Death Knight with Empower Rune Weapon: +10% proc rate with Hungering Rune Weapon: -23% proc rate
        Unholy Death Knight with Summon Gargoyle: +68% proc rate with Dark Arbiterr: no change
        Feral Druid with Berserk: no change with Incarnation: King of the Jungle: -45% Note: Incarnation was not properly working with Convergence, which has now been fixed. The number given here is relative to Convergence's proc rate with Berserk.
        Windwalker Monk with Storm, Earth, and Fire: -62% proc rate with Serenity: -75% proc rate
        Retribution Paladin with Avenging Wrath: +250% proc rate with Crusade: +25% proc rate Note: This change should bring Convergence back to roughly its original effectiveness for Ret Paladins who are not using Crusade.
      Additionally, on the topic of tank trinkets, we'll be increasing Animated Exoskeleton's maximum shield amount by 33%. We're continuing to investigate tank trinkets, but that change will make it in for this week's hotfix.

      We’re planning to make these changes with the next weekly restarts, alongside the release of Mythic Nighthold. Overall, this should make the trinkets in Nighthold more competitive with other trinkets available elsewhere in the expansion.

      And the Crusade nerf explanation:
      Sigma (source)
      We are definitely keenly aware that people feel better when we fix a problem by buffing something, rather than fixing it by nerfing something. If you look across classes and talent rows in 7.1.5, you'll see the great majority of balance issues were addressed by buffing underperforming talents. There are a few factors that go into this decision though, and it generally has to be handled on a case-by-case basis.
      One issue when balancing a lopsided talent row is whether we want the overall power of the spec to go slightly up or slightly down in the process. In the case of Retribution during our tuning adjustments for the opening of Nighthold, we intended to slightly nerf the topend performance of the spec (essentially, the performance of players stacking trinkets/relics/legendaries that all build around Crusade). I know there's no easy way to deliver that message, but hopefully it's at least worth clarifying that it's not some accident of how we chose to balance the L100 row. Players say "why couldn't we buff Divine Purpose instead of nerfing Crusade", for the very understandable reason that the former wouldn't have resulted in a slight DPS nerf. But we were conscious of the slight DPS nerf when we decided to do it this way.
      Another factor is that there are sometimes limits on how powerful we want an individual talent to be, regardless of balance within the row. Divine Purpose and Crusade are both very strong talents, that have a significant impact on the rotation and playstyle of the spec (and as mentioned, on gear/talent/relic/etc. decisions), even at their current strength. Balancing Retribution L100 at an even higher point would start causing more issues--Divine Purpose would allow strings of multiple free finishers very often, Crusade would continue to represent a majority of the spec's damage within a cooldown, and Holy Wrath would have to get even more bursty to try to compete with the other two. Sometimes we have to be careful about addressing all balance problems by buffing two talents up to match the highest one, because it can lead to a lot of power creep on the importance of a single talent to an entire DPS rotation.
       
      Draught of Souls and Nightblooming Frond details:
      Lore
      We'll look into Draught of Souls and its effect for Warriors a bit more. Worth noting that the change to have it on the GCD does mean the trinket will be a bit weaker after these hotfixes for most classes (Unholy DK being the exception, due to the damage increase).
      Regarding the Unholy damage reduction for Draught, again, that's only there to counteract the fact that Unholy's Mastery increases Draught's damage. Either way, its damage is going up by ~17% with this hotfix, which is pretty substantial.
      We'll also take another look at Nightblooming Frond.

      Tank trinkets are on our to-do list, but not for this round of trinket tuning. We agree that they need some help.
    • By Starym
      Update: Added more Mage changes for all 3 specs, all get increased damage to most skills and Comet Storm's damage buff goes up to 30%.
      More class tuning coming next reset and Nighthold trinkets get re-assesed, featuring dev notes.

      More changes are afoot, as there's class tuning coming up next reset for Mythic week, featuring Druid, Hunter, Mage, Monk, Paladin and Warlock tinkering. Paladins also get another ray of hope that their beloved Convergence of Fates will get un-nerfedintotheground as Blizzard re-assess some Nighthold trinkets in the second blue post below.
      Lore (source)
      As we prepare for the opening of Mythic Nighthold, we're planning another round of balance tuning for a few specs. These will be applied with the next weekly maintenance.
      Druid
      Feral Increased the damage of most Feral spells and abilities by 8%. (Ashamane's Frenzy, Brutal Slash, Ferocious Bite, Maim, Moonfire, Rake, Shred, Swipe, Thrash, Rip) Designer Notes: Feral's playstyle feels good, but isn't putting up the numbers that it should be, so we're giving them an across-the-board damage buff.
      Hunter
      Combat Experience (Pet Passive) now increases the damage of primary pets by 60% (up from 50%). Designer Notes: This is primarily a damage buff to Beast Mastery, but will have a tiny benefit to Survival and occasionally Marksmanship as well. Marksmanship Arcane Shot now generates 8 Focus (up from 5). Multi-Shot now generates 3 Focus per target hit (up from 2). Sidewinders damage increased by 33%. Designer Notes: Marksmanship has given a lot of feedback that the rotation often winds up casting too many consecutive Focus generators. We are making two changes: first, helping avoid that problem by increasing the Focus generation of Arcane Shot and Multi-Shot. Second, making it more attractive to use Sidewinders in more situations, for players who prefer the pacing of the rotation with that talent.   Mage
      Arcane Increased the damage of most Arcane spells and abilities by 8%. (Arcane Barrage, Arcane Blast, Arcane Explosion, Arcane Missiles, Arcane Orb, Nether Tempest, Supernova) Overpowered now increases the damage and mana cost bonuses of Arcane Power to 60% (down from 70%). Amplification now increases Arcane Missiles damage by 12% (down from 15%). Designer Notes: Arcane has been doing well in 7.1.5, but its numbers are lacking a bit. We're giving them an across-the-board damage buff, but tempering that with small reductions to a couple new talents that are proving to be too strong. Fire Increased the damage of most Fire spells and abilities by 3%. (Blast Wave, Cinderstorm, Dragon's Breath, Fire Blast, Fireball, Flame Patch, Flamestrike, Living Bomb, Meteor, Phoenix Flames, Pyroblast, Scorch) Pyroblast mana cost reduced by 20%. Flamestrikemana cost reduced by 17%. Designer Notes: Under certain circumstances, it was possible for Fire to run out of mana. It's only intended that mana is a constraint on Fire's utility, not its damage. Frost Increased the damage of most Frost spells and abilities by 4%. (Ebonbolt, Blizzard, Cone of Cold, Flurry, Frost Bomb, Frostbolt, Frozen Orb, Ice Lance, Ice Nova, Waterbolt, Ray of Frost, Water Jet) Comet Storm damage increased by 30%. Flurry now fires its missiles faster. Designer Notes: Comet Storm is failing to live up to expectations, so we're buffing its damage. The Flurry change will help Flurry feel more responsive, while simultaneously solving a potential issue where Winter's Chill could apply to two Ice Lances (instead of just one, as intended) at extremely high Haste levels.
      Monk
      Brewmaster Keg Smash damage increased by 10%, and it no longer deals reduced damage to 6+ targets. Breath of Fire damage increased 11%. Designer Notes: Brewmasters could use a bit of help on damage, especially in AoE.
      Paladin
      Retribution Crusade now increases damage and Haste by 3% per stack (down from 3.5%). Blade of Justice damage increased by 20%, unchanged in PvP. Designer Notes: Retribution's total damage is looking quite strong in 7.1.5, which is fine on its own. However, how that damage is delivered matters quite a bit as well. We've been seeing more and more than Paladins find that the optimal way to maximize their performance is to focus everything they can on boosting their damage during Crusade. This creates a number of problems, including: Crusade feels mandatory, your damage feels very unrewarding outside of Crusade, trinkets and artifact traits are viewed as either amazing or terrible based on whether they synergize with Crusade, and others.

      As such, we're going to tone down Crusade, and compensate with a buff to Blade of Justice. For those that had maximized Crusade to an extreme degree, this may result in a small overall nerf – this is intended. This change also helps prevent Divine Hammer from being too dominant in single-target situations.
      Warlock
      Destruction Chaos Bolt damage increased by 9%. Rain of Fire damage increased by 30%. Cataclysm damage increased by 29%. Designer Notes: Destruction's damage isn't as high as it should be. In particular, some of its spells that should feel the most rewarding aren't hitting hard enough, especially in AoE situations. We're buffing the damage of those spells.
      As always, there may be additional PvP-only tuning applied along with these changes. We'll share details on any such changes once they've been determined.
       
      Lore (source)
      We've been following the discussion on the recent changes to the Convergence of Fates trinkets for Retribution Paladins, as well as the surrounding discussions about trinket balance in general, and wanted to give a quick update on what we're planning:
      The original value of Convergence for Ret was wildly out of line with other trinkets, largely due to its interaction with Crusade. After investigation, however, we believe that the change we made may have overshot the mark. We’ll be making some additional adjustments to Convergence of Fate, to make sure that it’s still a good trinket for Ret.
      We’re also investigating Convergence’s value to other classes, particularly those with talents that replace the cooldowns that Convergence effects (such as Dark Arbiter for Unholy Death Knights). Like Crusade, those talents are made significantly more powerful when combined with Convergence of Fate, so we’ll likely need to make some adjustments when those kinds of talents are selected as well.
      We are also planning to improve Nighthold trinkets which have effects that aren’t a stat buff, such as the slam on Might of Krosus. We will post more information about this as soon as we have settled on the appropriate values, and are planning to make the changes with raid resets next week.

      World Quests have had their rewards updated, demons are invading various parts of the Broken Shore and reputations with Legion factions beyond Exalted yield additional rewards.
      World Quests
      Had their rewards bumped up to item level 860+.

      Demon Assaults
      On PTRs, zones are periodically under attack and they switch every 3 hours, but it may be only to speed up testing. Once you zone in, you'll auto-accept the following quests if the zone you enter is under attack, for example Assault on Val'sharah. You have to complete 6 invasions in that area. Assaults are basically the same as World Quests. When a zone is invaded, no World Quests are available.
      An invasion is indicated by a big logo on the world map.

      Invasion quests also have different icons than regular World Quests.

      Demons are all over the place. You will be closing portals, killing various enemies including commanders.

      Flight Master Mount Change
      The flying mount used for transport across the Broken Shore has changed.


      Reputation Paragon
      If you've reached Exalted with Legion factions, every 20,000 additional reputation you'll get will award additional caches. We don't know if the caches have an increased chance to give you a Legendary or notable item upgrades, but let's hope the rewards are better, because you don't collect 20,000 reputation in the blink of an eye and getting an item level 835 that ends as a Chaos Crystal is all but rewarding. It's also worth noting that saving all reputation items for 7.2 isn't a bad idea as they will come in handy. Obtaining 10 caches rewards the Paragon of the Broken Isles achievement.
