MMO-Champion - Legendary Daggers Questline Mini-Preview, New Class Spell Effects
Important - If you missed it a few hours ago, don't miss the preview of the Patch 4.3 Raid Finder!

Fangs of the Father - Legendary Daggers Questline Mini-Preview
The patch has only been on the test realms for a few days but we can already find a couple of information on the questline to get the legendary daggers! The quests below are the 4 first quests found in the game files, they will most likely be followed by more of them.

I also added high resolution screenshots of all 3 stages of the dagger and a 1080p video.


Proving Your Worth
Objective - Pickpocket a cryptomancer's decoder ring from a Twilight Sorceror at the Azure Dragonshrine within the Dragon's Soul raid encounter.
Description - Hello, [name]! You've earned a reputation among the flight as having - shall we say - 'nimble fingers.' We need someone of your skills for a matter of utmost delicacy. Before I reveal more, we need to know you're the right [man/woman] for the job.

When the course of battle takes you to the Azure Dragonshrine, I need you to pickpocket the Twilight Sorcerors until you discover a cryptomancer's decoder ring. Are you up to the task?

A Hidden Message
Objective - Charge your Cryptomancer's Decoder Ring and use it to decode the Corastrasza's Singed Cipher.
Description - Corastrasza, currently stationed at the Vermillion Redoubt in the Twilight Highlands, has intercepted a coded message of grave importance. I'll let her explain the full situation, but we need your expertise to unravel the cipher!

Take your decoder ring to an ethereal thurmaturge in your capital city - he should know how to charge it. Acquire the encoded cipher from Corastrasza and use the ring to decode it for her. Hurry! Time is ticking...

To Ravenholdt
Objective - Speak to Mostrasz at the Vermillion Redoubt and fly to Ravenholdt Manor together.
Description - If the egg is in Ravenholdt Manor, we can't risk torching it in an all-out assault. I'll need someone slippery to get in there and find out for sure. That's you, [name].

Mostrasz will help you infiltrate the compound. Speak to him just outside and fly to Ravenholdt together. Good luck!

To Catch a Thief
Objective - Infiltrate Ravenholdt Manor and locate the missing black dragon egg.
Description - Just beyond this cave lies Ravenholdt Manor. You need to get inside without being seen!

*Mostrasz places an enchantment on you.*

There - now I'll be able to keep an eye on you and communicate as you venture into the compound. Now sneak into that manor, locate the egg, and don't get caught...



Patch 4.3 Updated Spell Effects - Shadow Bolt, Lightning Bolt, Wrath
A couple of classes are getting updated spell effects in this patch, Druid, Shaman, and Warlock are the lucky winners of new spell effects!

Priests are also supposed to get a new effect for Divine Aegis but the new version doesn't seem to be implemented on test realms yet.

    Hentai-Dagger made me laugh.

    red ascii fish This is what stage 2 looks like for me and also always makes me smile.

    Wrath looks like it's missing a "splat" effect. It looks like the dummy just absorbs it which makes it seem like "He's shooting gold sparklies at me! Tee hee!" instead of a nasty blast of nature. Lightning bolt and Shadow Bolt both look great though. The fading color change in the tail of SB is a really nice effect. The skull is pretty ridiculous, But that's what I really love about it. Lightning bolt is a more refined version of an already pretty nice effect. And they both go splat when they hit.

    Even though the new SB is a retextured chaos bolt it still look much more pleasing to see, and I for one welcome it. Hmmm so the quest line will test you skills as a rogue starting with you ability to infiltrate? Interesting if so. Also hurray ravenholt will see some use after 5ish years.

    Shadowbolt was fine before, at least Lightning Bolt and Wrath also had a graphic.Now, Hunters are the ones with terrible spell effects

    Rogues have been asking for YEARS for more involvement of the Ravenholdt faction. Blizzard finally listens and makes you steal from them, i.e. become their enemy. Way to miss the point Blizz.

    People complaining about wrath, how spoiled are you ? Would you rather have it as it is now ? It is a shiny new effect, something that other classes with old spells designed for stone age computers could just wish to have.

    Yeah, I would. Sure it looks dated, but it looks good for being dated. This new model doesn't even have a projectile, it's just a particle stream. In fact, this looks much like the particle used for prayer of mending. Not like wrath.

    And mages still have the same damn fireball that imps do, awesome.

    i wonder if beinf exalted with ravenholdt will have any affect on the dagger quests?
  1. DesireKT's Avatar
    They should have made the tentacles grasp the wrist of the wielder to give the effect of being forced to keep them on and that the daggers had a "Mind of their own."

    Holy cow what are those animations? Maybe I am too old fashion but are shamans becoming some laser character? And Druid's Wrath is now a fire spell?

    Also that dagger ... Tentacles? And in 3rd stage it looks kinda ridiculous, I assume it's not yet finished (especially the lovely glow from 2nd stage being replaced with some strange frame).

    Looks like the Lightning Bolt will be an instant hit like the Lightning Chain now :O

    Wrath looks horrible but the others are great

    Wrath looks like total crap.... It's pathetic. It looks like something a Priest would use...

    Is the first stage supposed to look better than the last stage?
