Thoughts on Legion

From the lack of updates here one could conclude that I might have lost interest in WoW, but that is definitely not the case ! Ever since Legion came out I have been doing my daily World Quests with Morpheus the (balance) druid. Only just the last few weeks or so I have been switching to Zendrella, my warlock a little bit and skipped a day here and there. Mainly because I have completed the balance artifact power tree as you can see below.

With a 865 rating, and 2 legendaies I kinda feel like I have won the game ;). Seriously though, you can quite far by just doing the world quests and the weekly ‘open world’ mods. The LFR loot is only about 835 level, so dont expect to get any decent gear through that avenue. Though a new raid ‘Nighthold’ opened up it’s first wing for LFR with high level rewards.
 
But enough about gear, how is the game ? The Broken Isles are quite fun ! The leveling is pretty good with each zone having an overall (independent) story arc. The mobs and quests are always your level or one below you, the Broken Isles scales !
 
Once at 110 a new game starts though. Originally you had to be friendly with all factions on the Isle to start, but to my surprise once Zendrella hit 110 she could start world quests and was giving the extremely handy ‘flight master’s whistle‘  to get started. 
 
With patch 7.1.5 the Artifact Knowledge Compendium was introduced as a catchup mechanic for alts !

Argent Dawn Tournament Pays Off

It certainly pays off to become a champion at the Argent Dawn camp. First of all you get access to four not very hard daily quests that pay almost 25g each time you do them. I skip the dueling nowadays usually, as I got very bored with it.

You can also exchange 10g for standing of the faction you’re championing for. Furthermore there are some nice items for sale that you can buy with the champion points you get for each daily. One daily, a group one gives 2 tokens even ! And there is almost always a group doing that one, and it takes only a few minutes.

Morpheus now has the purple spell dagger a great combo with Prison Manifest in the off hand. Morphea could have gone for the gun, but I am not sure it’s better than the Nesingwary Gun I am using at the moment. It’s got some extra stats on it though, I might just get it to try it out. For now I settled for the necklace.

The Argent Hippogryph is very cool, but at 250 tokens a bit out of my reach !

Resto Druid Gear Guide

Just specced Morpheus to Resto as I already have a dps character in Morphea and sometimes the guild needs a healer. I mainly went boomkin for the pvp, but since that’s not a lot of fun anymore these days, I thought Resto Spec would be better. If we ever get a dual spec, I’ll get my Boomkin back !

There is an excellent gear guide for Resto druids at wow-insider !

Isle of Quel’Danas

As you can see in the picture below there was quite a bit of interest for the new dailies ;). The new ones are very easy and pay well. Especially now that the novelty has worn off a little, and you don’t have to fight 6 other people for the same mob. The two new ones in Hellfire are also very good. Quick to do and you get a sunwell surprise packet, that can contain a badge of justice, and always a green item that I usually end up selling to a vendor.

There is an excellent overview at cursegaming of all the dailies. Not all are available yet as Aggramar is currently in Phase 2.

We also tried the new instance the Magister’s Terrace and unfortunetely got beat by the second boss. I am sure we’ll get our revenge when we get back in somewhat better PVE gear. It’s a beautiful instance and definately different from other ones. A lot of casters though, that are hard on the tank. Only thing I didn’t like were the tight corridors, where you sometimes end up pulling, as it’s hard to see when you play a Tauren and it make the fighting somewhat confusing.

All in all patch 2.4 is very nice I think. Patching was very smoothly, I turned off most of my addons (except Bongos2) at patch day, and updated everything thursday and friday night and dropped a lot that I didn’t use much anyway. Oh and I can now press my mount when I am in Moonkin and I morph into caster form and hop on. Very convenient ;).
