Legion - Kosumoth the Hungering Rare Spawn
Arcten and other players figured out how to spawn how to summon Kosumoth the Hungering! Killing him won't do much for you unless you have the world quest, which is unlocked by completing the process below. This week the quest appears to reward Fathom Dweller for EU and Hungering Claw for the US.




Initial Steps
  • Talk to Drak'thul out on the Broken Shore until he has no more dialogue options for you to choose from.
  • Head to the cave at 58, 54 on the Broken Isles, die and resurrect if needed to get past the rocks, go to the very back, click the Mound of Dirt to loot the Weathered Relic.
  • The mound is hard to see, so look carefully.
  • Return to Drak'thul and talk to him again until he has no more dialogue options for you to choose from. This requires opening and closing the dialogue window.

Orb Notes
  • Next you will need to click on ten different orbs, in order. Each has a 50 minute respawn time per realm.
  • You can use this macro to check if you got credit for an orb: /dump IsQuestFlaggedCompleted(QuestID)
  • The Quest ID for each orb is listed in parenthesis in the steps below.
  • Orb 6 and 9 are bottlenecks, as they are located in a place where players from multiple realms appear.
  • Changing zones, waiting, or logging in and out will cause the DANGER: Kosumoth the Hungering quest to appear, rewarding you with Hungering Claw or Fathom Dweller, depending on what is up for your region this week.
  • You will only have to do the Orbs once! (Source)

Orb Collection
  • The orbs must be clicked in order.
  • Orb 1 (43730) - Go to 37.9, 37.5 in Azsuna and enter the cave at the base of the tree.
  • Orb 2 (43731) - Go to 63.7, 36.2 in Suramar and take the path up the cliff right before reaching Stormheim. Turn right on the path, head up the cliff towards Stormheim, make a small drop off the rock to the tree on the side of the cliff. Enter the cave at 32.9, 75.8 and beware of the mob inside.
  • Orb 3 (43732) - Go to Lorlathil in Val'sharah, take the road west to Thas'talah and head south towards the cliff, enter the cave at the base of the tree at 41, 81. The mob inside casts a high damage spell, beware!
  • Orb 4 (43733) - Go to 31.3, 76.9 in the Broken Shore, swim down into the fatigue water and into the cave.
  • Orb 5 (43734) - Go to 59.3, 12.9 in Azsuna, entering the cave at the base of a tree in the purple rift on the map.
  • Orb 6 (43735) - Go to 67, 15 on the Broken Isles map (near the island northeast of Stormheim), entering the cave located under the shark. This orb will have people from multiple realms.
  • Orb 7 (43736) - Go to 55.8, 38.6 in Highmountain. You will need to drop down off the cliff a short distance to reach this cave, which is another hidden by some bushes.
  • Orb 8 (43737) - Go to 54.1, 26.3 in Azsuna, entering the cave at the base of a tree. The orb is towards the back of the cave under a bush.
  • Orb 9 (43760) - Head to 79, 89.0 in Eye of Azshara and swim down to the sunken ship. Inside of it you will find a cave. This orb will have people from multiple realms.
  • Orb 10 (43761) - Head back to where it all started, our good friend Drak'thul. The last orb is on his table.

Demon Hunter (Forums / Skills / Talent Calculator / Artifact Calculator / PvP Talent Calculator)

Priest (Forums / Skills / Talent Calculator / Artifact Calculator / PvP Talent Calculator)

Dungeons
  • Assault on Violet Hold

  • Touch of the Void: the tentacles summoned by this trinket no longer scale past level 100.
  • Reduced the active effect potency of Heirloom trinkets acquired from Warlords of Draenor Mythic Dungeons.

Legion Companion App FAQ
Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
With the release of the WoW Legion Companion App, we’ve seen a number of questions from the community that we’d like to address. Here are some answers to some of the most-frequently asked questions:

Q: Why do I keep getting the same notifications when I close the app?
A: This is a known issue, which we plan to fix in the next update to the Legion Companion App.

Q: My authenticator app is on the same device as the WoW app, is there a way to avoid having to switch to the Authenticator app to approve a code while logging in?
A: There are two ways to avoid this. When you get the “Check your Authenticator for request…” message, do one of the following:
  • 1) Swipe down on the notification itself to reveal an “Approve” button. Tap that and login will continue.
  • 2) Scroll down and tap the “Use Authenticator Security Code” link. This should import a code automatically from the Authenticator app if it is on the same device. Then scroll down and tap “Submit” to enter the code.

Q: I have a character that has champions, but the app says it doesn’t, and won’t let me log in. What’s going on?
A: This is a known issue and a fix is being applied, but it may take a day to fully update world-wide. As a workaround, try logging in and out of the affected character on your computer before logging in on the app.

Q: Why do I have to log in every time I use the app?
A: You don’t! If you are on the title screen and have previously logged in, you should see the “Characters” button. Tap that instead of “Login” and you will bypass the login step and go straight to character selection.

Q: Will the Legion Companion App be released for Windows or Amazon phones?
A: We are currently not planning to support any platforms other than iOS and Android at this time.

    Use any of the non-DH gliders, or jump off Dalaran and swim.

    Well....that's freaking stupid.

    I hate it when they nerf fun. I understand if something is unbalanced, but 15 mins kite cd? So useless. Demon Hunters have no cooldown on their "kite".

    Thankfully I have a ton of goblin glider kits that have only 3 min CD. Byebye kite!
  1. Gloriandus's Avatar
    Cool that the mount and pet are attainable just by completing the steps needed to make the WQ pop, but the info makes it seem like that only one person can loot it every 50 minutes? Nightmare, if true.
  1. therealslayer's Avatar
    The nerf to Kite was stupid, and adding 1 min to CD to other gliders?

    What if I told you that we're using these to bypass content we've already seen? Mind blowing right? Such a stupid reason to nerf them..

    "..diminished the value of utility and world-navigation tools that are core to certain classes and professions."

    You mean demon hunter glide and the engineering glider you nerf'd? Oh and I guess the mountspeed increase item that costs 400g a pop? Lasts for 2 hours but falls off randomly? Or doesn't stack with Paladin or DK speed? Yeah, great. *slow clap*

    I know blizzard doesn't read these.. but damn! Irritating.

    Multiple people can loot it but it despawns after a while.

    It appears quests aren't being flagged correctly for some people. For example, I've attuned to the Stormheim one (43731) about three times now, but the IsQuestFlaggedCompleted check still returns 'false', and the Val'Sharah one I can't interact with.

    Multiple people can loot it but it despawns after a while.
    The items don't come from the boss, they come from the world quest to kill the boss.

    So EU gets a mount while US gets a pet. Hopefully it wont be a pain to get the opposite item.

    nvm. guess it changes per week/etc.

    He was talking about the orbs being able to be looted by multiple people.

    I am unable to click the first orb despite getting the skull and clearing all of the dialogue options. Oy. Monk just came in and got it in front of me, though.

    Yeaaah. Either the orbs should be free to click and you should have to do it every week to access the WQ, or you should only have to have one person on the realm do the orbs and it unlocks the WQ server-wide until the boss has been killed.

    50 Min respawn timer for one person with 10 guys camping on a PvP Server? Thanks but no thanks.

    Everyone having it so frequently devalues the Demon Hunters ability.
