wow Bodyguard Perks - Leorajh Mission Table

5 posts in this topic

9992-level-your-wow-bodyguards.jpg

 

One of the underutilized benefits of the Garrison is the ability for certain Followers to become Bodyguards. If you keep and upgrade the Barracks in your Garrison (to level 2 or higher), you can assign a Follower with the Bodyguard trait to the building, then speak to them outside the Barracks to take them on patrol with you.

 

Bodyguards use a reputation system akin to the Tillers friendship system. Reputation increases for Bodyguards are only available by killing experience-granting mobs outdoors in Draenor, where your Bodyguard can assist you. Each kill is worth 10 reputation points, and Bodyguard reputation can be raised by two levels, both exactly 10,000 reputation in length.

 

At reputation level two (Trusted Bodyguard), each Bodyguard will have a quest available for you to complete that will teach the Bodyguard a third ability/spell they can cast while out questing or farming with you. Bodyguards are tremendously useful for questing prior to learning their bonus ability, but become substantially more valuable with it.

 

Upon achieving level three (Wingman) reputation with a Bodyguard, you will be offered another quest to complete for that Follower. Each faction currently has five Followers that are Bodyguards (this trait cannot be rerolled/lost), and upon reaching maximum reputation, confers an optional perk that you can access by speaking to them in the field. Those benefits are:

 

Defender Illona (A) / Aeda Brightdawn (H) - Ritual of Summoning

Delvar Ironfist (A) / Vivianne (H) - Portal: Garrison

Leorajh - Windspeaker (portable command table!)

Talonpriest Ishaal - Courier Raven (portable mailbox)

Tormmok - Master of Arms (gear repair)

 

Out of these five, few players will need a field-based summon (Warlocks and Summoning Stones cover this for the most part), a portal to their Garrison (you have a separate, short cooldown Hearthstone for this), mail access, or gear repair, but Leorajh currently provides the only way - other than returning to your Garrison or one of its outposts - to access a mission table. This is a great feature for breaks in raids or to manage your missions without having to constantly return to your Garrison!

 

To acquire Leorajh, you must be at least level 94. He is located in a cave in Spires of Arak, along with the rare spawn Sol-Shaper Valarik and several other level 97 mobs. Simply speaking with Leorajh will allow you to complete the quest and add him as a follower.

 

Here is a short video showing the exact path to the hidden cave entrance:

 

 

After acquiring Leorajh, find a location with a high spawn rate for monsters and level him up by killing enemies! If you have good, raid-level gear, The Burning Front in Talador works really well. If not, farming Stoneshard Grubling in Gorgrond is fast as well. Maxing a Bodyguard's reputation in one of these locations should only take 30 minutes to an hour.

 

Take advantage of the Bodyguard perks! Are there other features you would like to see conferred as benefits from future Bodyguards?

This is awesome. Thanks. Just did it today. Got Leorajh, headed over to the Burning Front, and boom, 1 hr later got the achievement and the perks. As an MM hunter, Barrage and Multi-shot were my best friends. So get ready to AoE.

 

Thanks again :)

You're very welcome! It's one of the hugely underutilized features within Warlords right now, in my opinion. I've heard more than a few comments about the hassle of people wanting raid breaks to return to their Garrisons to manage missions, and the headache of coordinating summoning them all back that invariably follows.

 

Now, a quick duck out of the instance is all it takes! :D

       Abyss Worm is the first mount from Tomb of Sargeras and according to the Encounter Journal it will drop from Mistress Sassz'ine.
      We expect more mounts to be added soon, because Glory of the Tomb Raider currently offers no mount reward.

      Changes to Tier 20 Arcane Mage & Assassination Rogue set bonuses are coming, developers discuss possible changes to Mistweaver Monks, Shaman class mount will switch tints between specs and the crafting reagents for Paladin & Warlock class mounts will be re-evaluated in a future 7.2 build.
      Arcane Mage Tier 20 2P Set Bonus
      Item - Mage T20 Arcane 2P Bonus will be redesigned to work with other spell than Greater Invisibility to avoid spamming utility buttons for a DPS increase.
      Sigma (Source)
      We're considering making the set bonus work with some spell other than Greater Invisibility, to avoid overloading a utility button with a rotational DPS benefit. Mistweaver Monks & Mythic Raiding
      The MW community feels their spots in Mythic raids are jeopardized and progression hampers their class. No immediate changes are planned, but Sigma drafted possible future changes.
      Sigma (Source)
      Much like the Disc post in the other thread, Mistweaver is more in a state of thinking ahead for possible refinements, but no immediate shake-ups. This is preliminary, but a possible direction is that some things could be smoothed out by reducing the emphasis on Essence Font. That could help with, for example, drawing out more of a regular ongoing decision between Enveloping Mist, Vivify, and Effuse, rather than having that so often pushed out by Essence Font. Also, making the value of mastery more stable, and reducing the importance of churning as much mana into Essence Fonts as possible. For fair warning, a cooldown on EF is not out of the question after seeing how it's played out, but that would come alongside seeing how other heals might have to be strengthened.

      Rising Thunder has wound up underperforming which we would likely look at at the same time. It would likely be helped regardless by changes that made it easier to spend mana and GCDs on Rising Sun Kick, without always taking away from something like an Essence Font. Paladin & Warlock Class Mounts Requirements
      Both classes need expensive materials to craft their class mounts. Requirements will be re-examined soon.
      Muffinus (Source)
      Why do only the Warlock and Paladin class mount quests require obscenely expensive mats? Its a bit ridiculous we alone have to spend tons of gold to get our mounts and no other classes do.
      I posted this in the main thread, but cross-posting it here for visibility - we'll be re-examining the rare material requirement for the Paladin and Warlock class mounts, we don't want the gate for these to be an expensive tradeskill material. 
      Tier 20 Assassination Rogue 2P Set Bonus
      Item - Rogue T20 Assassination 2P Bonus Item - Rogue T20 Assassination 4P Bonus The bonus to Garrote would only make sense while picking Exsanguinate or in a situation where you keep up two Garrotes. It's needless to say that after multiple Ruptures are up, Garrote may not be worth using.
      Sigma (Source)
      The 2-piece will get some single-target benefit. That said, part of the benefit of the bonus is the improved multi-target capability that Garrote has with a shorter cooldown. Shaman Class Mount Adjustments
      Currently, Enhancement Shamans have a fiery appearance for their class mount (Farseer's Raging Tempest), which will be fixed in a future update. The spec will switch mount tints with Elemental.
      Muffinus (Source)
       In the next PTR build, elemental will be fiery, and enhancement will be stormy.

      We are also making changes to the resto version to make it more watery, and remove the strobe effects.
