Broken Shore Guide (Legion 7.2)

Last updated on Apr 21, 2017 at 20:05 by Stan 1 comment

Table of Contents

Broken Shore is reminiscent of Tanaan Jungle and Timeless Isle, but its content is unlocked more gradually. The zone also contains the Tomb of Sargeras raid and the Cathedral of Eternal Night dungeon.

After speaking to Archmage Khadgar at Krasus Landing in Dalaran, you will begin a scenario that serves as a prelude to the Armies of Legionfall and the Broken Shore. Once the scenario is completed, you will unlock Broken Shore World Quests and gain initial reputation with the Armies of Legionfall.

With Patch 7.2, Nethershards Nethershards (the currency of the Legion pre-patch) are making a comeback and are used to buy the rewards of the Armies of Legionfall and to gamble with Relinquished Tokens. It can be earned mostly from Demon Assault World Quests, the Invasion Scenario, the Sentinax, and containers on the Broken Shore.

1. Nethershards

Nethershards Nethershards are the currency of the event and are used to purchase the rewards.

2. Broken Shore Buildings

Deliverance Point will be your main foothold, where you will contribute Legionfall War Supplies Legionfall War Supplies (obtained mainly from Broken Shore World Quests and rare Elites) by batches of 100 in order to construct structures that grant various perks (including activating new content). Contributions are a cross-faction, region-wide effort.

Broken Shore Buildings

As you can see, there are 3 buildings (Mage Tower, Command Center, and Nether Disruptor). Each building has a permanent perk (i.e., a perk that is enabled for everyone) and a secondary random perk that changes every time the building is rebuilt. In order to benefit from the perks, players need to speak with Commander Chambers every time a building is rebuilt.

Once a building is completed, the Legion will periodically attack it, eventually destroying it after 3 days. Perks are disabled when Legion forces are attacking the building. There is a 1-day cooldown period before a destroyed building can be rebuilt.

    • This is single-player content that allows you to test out your skills against a mighty opponent. If you succeed, you will unlock new Artifact appearances for your specialization. It costs Nethershards Nethershards to purchase additional chances at the encounter. There is a total of 7 challenges per specialization.
  • Veiled Wyrmtongue Chests: The power of the Mage Tower pulses across the Broken Shore, revealing the lucrative Veiled Wyrmtongue Chests.
    • Veiled Wyrmtongue Caches are shared containers that spawn at random locations whenever the Mage Tower is up (not to be confused with Curious Wyrmtongue Caches).
  • Portal Network: The Kirin Tor provide access to portals which can be used to move quickly around the Broken Isles.
    • Inside the Mage Tower, you will find portals to move between zones across the Broken Isles (Azsuna, Highmountain, Val'sharah, Stormheim).

2.3.1. Random Perks

3. Treasure Master Iks'reeged

Treasure Master Iks'reeged is unlocked after completing the quest line started by Spiders, Huh?. He can be found in a secret cave that can be accessed by clicking the Peculiar Rope found at 47,67, as shown in the image below:

Sometimes, you will notice the Treasure Master Iks'reeged World Quest pop up. If you bring him 100 Nethershards Nethershards, he will give you a Wyrmtongue's Cache Key Icon Wyrmtongue's Cache Key that you can use to open Curious Wyrmtongue Caches inside the cave.

These tokens have a chance to contain a Legendary item appropriate for your loot specialization, with a base item level of 880. These tokens are the World of Warcraft equivalent of Kadala gambling in Diablo 3.

5. Crafted Legendary Items

The new crafted legendary items are of medium strength, when compared to the other legendary items:

Note that they do not reset or influence bad luck protection in any way.

If you have Tailoring, Leatherworking, or Blacksmithing maxed out when the Nether Disruptor is built, you will receive a Armorcrafter's Commendation Icon Armorcrafter's Commendation from The Nether Disruptor quest. With this item in your bags, you can go and speak to Eliezer Hammerbeard at Deliverance Point to start the Fashion History and a Philosophy of Style quest, which serves as an introductory quest for all crafted legendary quests. From there on, you will be given different quests to complete, depending on your profession, before you can craft the new crafted legendary items.

Crafting a legendary item consumes a Nethershard Essence Icon Nethershard Essence, which you can buy from Warmage Kath'leen for 8,000 Nethershards Nethershards.

6. The Sentinax

The Sentinax is a Legion battleship cruising the Broken Shore (it periodically changes its location) and attacking the area beneath it. Enemies beneath the Sentinax have a chance to drop beacons that are used to cause the Sentinax to open portals, which spawn more difficult creatures. When killed, the creatures drop Nethershards, crafting materials and even more powerful beacons that can be used to summon more challenging foes and provide better loot. Hence, several types of beacons can be dropped with increasing difficulty.

There are also 3 profession-related beacons that provide loot to all players:
