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.

    Spell effects: Quite nice, but I don't get why the wrath one is orange... Dagger is awesome, I think they did a very good job with it, and the quest will be great. To appreciate the looks you have to appreciate the lore behind it.

    The third stage of the dagger miss the same visual effect that the second stage had. Would be awesome with it instead of that glowing outline !

    ok the legendary rogues dagger, we have read of it everyday, it's getting old and boring. Have a crappy common model, not even comparable to the azinoth blades, that had a real legendary look.
    Beside I don't get why the other classes have to struggle with 3-4 class specs and rogues gets their own (ugly) legendary.

    New spells are awsome, makes me wonder how amazing Blizzard could make wow look without the pc restrictions of the average Joe.

    this is your opinion and from that repsonse i take it you don't play one.


    I think the daggers look awesome because they're to do with deathwing and the old gods and they're imbued with the vial of the old gods i think is what was posted and the transformation is to do with the change of death wing.

    I was hoping for the flight form to be the wings as casters get teragoca flight form. but being able to use them as a slow fall is still cool enough for me. bring on the legendary !

    Is that wrath or a priest spell? The other two look good.

    on the new spelleffects... is it me or does the travel time looks reduced, especially with the shaman's lightingbolt? (must be me)

    Dissappointed with the wrath animation to be honest My main is a Druid, and the original green colour suits the druid a lot more (green associated with nature). Ah well :/ Better start getting used to the orange colour then!

    +1 for lightning bolt, looks awesome. As many already pointed out, wrath looks like a holy spell.

    Cool stuff... I reckon.

    It's hard to make a legendary-looking dagger I would think. You pretty much justh ave to make them huge.

    Lightning bolt should become more like Raidens electricution for mortal combat its on its way I must say with this improvement

    Wrath animation looks like I'm throwing degraded fireballs...do. not. want.
  1. Teasy's Avatar
    Wrath a lil' bogus,
    Shadowbolt is epic
    Lightening Bolt is epic #2

    Gotta love them daggers. Wingies!

    Holy wrath!

    spells look nice. I still think a cool spell effect of frostfire bolt would be a double helix of fireball and icebolt.

    The wrath spell indeed does not fit..for me at least but it still looks good. The Lightning Bolt one looks amazing though! Daggers are awesome as well I hope they make the quest-chain really entertaining!

    Guess they are trying to tie in all our spells with the whole Solar/Lunar thing.

    Sunfire is orange/yellow and wraths still green, so they are trying to make it fit more into the Solar feel side.
    I see what they are trying to do and I'm all for it. I just feel this newest effect lacks something.
