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.

    Wrath went from ugly to ugly...

    I hope they give us a glyph for moonkin form like they did for shadowform....

    Wrath is absolutely shit looking compared to lightning bolt.
    (and it should be green, that stupid yellow firefly ball doesn't fit well near any of my other spells on the action bar :P)

    I hope they do something for starfire too, i still have to understand what it's effect is supposed to be...when i fight a boss i see only a splashing light on the ground :S

    On the ptr it seems they have changed the appearance of starfall too...it seems like it is missing the burning aura around the comet "bullet"
    They have also changed the reforging UI, now it uses round checkboxes instead of scrolldown menu

    Holy crap. The new spell animations just blew me away! I saw the warlock one and was like, "Man, that is awesome! I'm gonna comment on that." But then I saw the druid and shaman ones. Very cool changes. Now, where's our new Fireball animation?

    Personally I think wrath got worse, Shadowbolt only got a slight change, and Lightning Bolt went to completely epic. Plus the daggers have tentacles, last time I checked, this is not a Japanese School Girl Hentai.

    Not digging the new Wrath spell... or the stupid-looking glow outline on stage 3 of the dagger.

    Umm nothing could be more ugly then the little green ball with ribbons. I got so sick of the crappy spell animations on my druid and shaman that I could not play them anymore. I feel the Shaman calling me back already.

    Love the new shadow bolt look, wrath and lightning bolt look pretty pathetic if you ask me. bugs me that mobs and bosses get cooler spell effects and animations then the players..

    Hate to say this but I will be mogging the daggers. They look just terrible. Blizzards art team, has, once again, proved that they need to be fired.Basically everyone who didn't design the new paladin s11 needs to be fired. That set just shows how bad the rest are.

    Shadow bolt is the best looking spell out of all of them by far lol.

    That's your opinion. My opinion is that you have a bad taste.
    Let's stop crying about everything and saying these typical topics of Blizzard art team and such..
    Come on people.

    Judging from the 2 previous stages, I'd say the glow on stage 3 is just bugged out/incomplete at the moment.

    I will, no question about it. The eye is cool, the tentacles are just horrible, and the overall artwork is boring. Blizzard has never really excelled at making daggers though. They seem to only have two options: Over the top, or plain boring. Ornate daggers with some jewels in it and a sleek blade is something I can't remember seeing any of.

    Not all people are primarily visual, you may be auditory or kinesthetic mainly when it comes to senses, and simply not see what we see. The majority find the art to be bad, and it is.

    The exceptions are people who have deviating tastes compared to the rest of the public, and people who just aren't very visual and don't give a crap.

    Because it's not like Blizzard said that you couldn't transmorg legendary weapons. Oh wait...

    I meant you won't since legendaries can't be mogged in any way, whether it's copying from or changing them.

    I still think perdition's blade is the standard for how you make an amazing looking dagger. After they changed the model to what it currently is they really stood out. You could be standing in a crowded Org and they would catch your eye. But I do like the look of these, I think the gold outlining of the final version will look better in game.
