Upcoming Change to Argus Waystones and Invasion Points

First, will be removing the Argus Waystone currency entirely. Players who currently have Argus Waystones will be compensated with a small amount of Veiled Argunite.

The weekly quests that previously required Argus Waystones will now require players to simply complete three Invasion Points.

We will also be increasing the cap on Veiled Argunite to 2,000 from 1,500, to make sure there are no issues with any of these changes - this will also act as a small quality of life increase for those of you seeing yourselves at the currency cap.

Thanks for all your feedback so far on Invasion Points, and we'll see you on Argus!

Waystones and Invasion Points

Early in 7.3 PTR, Argus Waystones were a requirement to enter Greater Invasion Points. We removed that requirement after hearing great feedback on it in PTR testing, but retained the waystones for Invasion Onslaught. Now we’ve seen that after Invasion Points opened up, players have a lot of these stones left over with nothing to spend them on.

Therefore, the weekly quest Invasion Onslaught will be changed from 'collect 15 Argus Waystones' to 'complete 3 Invasion Points'. Argus Waystones will no longer be obtainable in the game, and any Argus Waystones on your character will be automatically converted into Veiled Argunite.

We hope this simplifies the quest and also stops our over-achieving ethereal currency collector from spamming your mailbox each day.

Again, we're working to hotfix this with weekly resets in each region starting on September 12.

Thank you for the feedback!

I think you first need to level them up to 110. I tried to apply a 900 ilvl token to my last inactive follower, and was not allowed to use it till i leveled it to 110 (was inactive on 109).
Yep, that's true, my bad for not mentioning it! You can also buy experience books for Nethershards too. Or use the champion as a combat ally (if possible) so that they get XP each time you complete a World Quest. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

This Week in WoW History
We're taking a look back at old MMO-Champion posts and World of Warcraft news that occurred during this time in previous years.

Legion Companion App Released
Shortly after Legion launched, the Legion Companion App was released! This app let players track world quests, complete missions, manage followers, research Order Hall talents, and do Artifact research. This was the first time users were able to interact with the game world from a mobile device outside of the Armory app, which allowed users to chat with their guild members and manage auctions.



Kosumoth The Hungering Rare Spawn
Not too long after Legion went live, and some players made it to 110 they began trying to figure out how to summon Kosumoth the Hungering! This rare spawn has the chance to reward a mount or a pet from a weekly quest, depending on which is up. In order to unlock the world quest there is a series of orbs that must be clicked. You can find the full process listed below.



Pet Battles: The Celestial Tournament
As Blizzard continued to implement more content in Mists of Pandaria, one of the things that they included was solid content for pet battles. This came in the form of the Celestial Tournament found on the Timeless Isle in the Jade Forest. In order to participate in the tournament, you had to have a certain number of pets leveled to 25. You could not heal or revive pets in between battles, making it even tougher! The tournament is still available on the Timeless Isle today, for those that are feeling brave enough to test their pet battle prowess.



The Lorewalkers Faction Preview
In early September 2012 Blizzard gave us another preview from the upcoming Mists of Pandaria expansion; this time we got a look at the Lorewalker Faction, which was tied to the archaeology profession. By traveling through Pandaria to complete some of these lost artifacts, you could take them to Lorewalker Cho who would then tell you stories about those items, or the races they came from. It also offered a way to work on other archaeology projects by getting Restored Artifacts to trade for other types of archaeology fragments. There are titles and achievements you can still earn today, such as The Seat of Knowledge.

    Good. I think the Waystone thing was a waste of time IMO

    Glad to see them listening to feedback given from PTR 2 weeks into the live game.
    Always a pleasure.

    I guess it's a good thing I haven't unlocked invasion points yet.

    Makes one think if their designers even play the game not to mention think about the edge cases and player behavior/experience based on past metrics. But seems like they don't even listen to feedback on PTR.

    wow, a currency that only lasted 2 weeks.

    Wish that armor had a tunic option. Then again I wish most robes had a tunic version.

    I'm glad they changed the Waystone stuff. Also, love these throwbacks you guys are doing. Just inspired me to finally complete the celestial tournament. Now I have a Xuen for my own

    Nice, glad that change is coming

    Because of that illidan camp spawn / re-spawn bug thing I only just unlocked invasions yesterday morning, I got awarded 14/15 stones to do that greater invasion. Havent seen a new one pop up yet (I'm assuming its daily reset) which is frustrating on the flip side of that my three mates are all sat on the cap wondering why we have them

    Same. That and sleeve versions. So many robes in the game that I wish had bloiting sleeves.

    Greater Invasion is a weekly, like a regular world boss. The smaller invasions lasts 6 hours and a new one spawns.

    Yeah. I got some at 905 now (used a +10 on a 895).

    I think the new tokens (925 and 950 ones) come out next week.

    "Upcoming changes"...

    Darn. Did the three available smaller Invasion Points, and am at 12/15 to complete the last of the invasion side-quest.

    Guess I'll have to wait a few hours to do a fourth invasion.
