  • Old - as well as improved support for in-game communities
  • New - as well as ways to make it easier to play with your friends
  • Removed - Create social circles with friends that have shared interests, and form the perfect group to play your way.



Demon Invasion Event Test June 9
Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
On Thursday, June 9, starting at 10:00 a.m. PDT, we will activate a new realm in the Legion Beta. This Beta realm will be named “Demon Invasion", and it will be dedicated to testing the pre-expansion demon invasion event with as many testers as possible for approximately 24 hours. We expect to remove the realm after 24 hours.

We ask that all Beta testers please join us in focusing testing on the “Demon Invasion” realm when it is available. While you may see demon invasions on other Beta realms, testing this content requires that your character remain at level 100, so we ask that you test on the “Demon Invasion” realm only.

Please direct your pre-Legion event feedback to the Beta General Discussion forum, and please direct any feedback you have about other Legion subjects to the appropriate dedicated subforum.

Thank you very much! We’ll see you at the defense of Azeroth!

Legion - Demon Invasion
The Demon Invasion event is going to have focused testing today, here is what we already know:

  • Several zones are going to be invaded: Tanaris, Westfall, Northern Barrens, Hillsbrad Foothills, Mulgore, and Azshara.
  • The Wetlands and Dun Morogh also have invasions in the data, but aren't referenced by the achievement.
  • Each invasion is a scenario entered by any Level 100-101 character that moves in to the invasion area.
  • Each scenario has 4 steps:
    • Defend against a general invasion at a point, such as Orgrimmar Rear Gate or Tarren Mill.
    • Defeat two lieutenants and a commander at that point.
    • Defeat the various invading forces marked on the map. Currently this seems to be a zone wide objective, will a fraction of a percent progress per NPC.
    • Defeat a boss NPC at the original invasion point that requires a group.
  • Completing the scenario rewards Stand Against the Legion.
  • Completing all of the invasion scenarios rewards Defender of Azeroth: Legion Invasions
  • You will also obtain Large Legion Chest and Small Legion Chest the first time that you complete all the stages.
  • The chests contain Nethershard and item level 685 armor and item level 700 weapons.
  • The weapons can be upgraded to item level 725 with Coalesced Fel.
  • Doing each scenario will reward you with some Nethershard
  • Nethershard may come from other sources as well, as there is a vendor that sells item level 700 neck, finger, trinket, and back items, as well as armor set transmogs.
  • Killing a Dread Infiltrator is a good idea, as they have a chance to drop Pocket Fel Spreader

I still do not like the 20 brimstone requirement as it will make me level up mining probably on my main to help get some early on as soon as I hit 110 as this is a limited reagent based on how many characters you can get to 110 with 300 mining to spawn the quest. It does not appear to spawn every day either. This is unlike other class quests which may have higher material requirements, but is not limited by time. I don't see this changing, however.
We also don't really like how the Infernal Brimstone requirement is working out, so we're going to change that step of the chain to ask for 10 Blood of Sargeras instead. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

    yeah i dont understand why most reviewing websites are saying the same stupid shit like 'Why orcs doesnt wear t-shirts' or 'All Gul'dan does is suck souls, not menacing enough'

    I know, right? I swear one of the reviews was basically like 'those orcs are weird, since they don't look anything like those in LotR'. The other one was comparing Medivh to half-Jesus, half-rockstar looking excuse of a wizard, 'because real wizards look like Gandalf'.

    ...and for good reason. I have been farming Mythics and Heroics HFC for months now to get up to iL 735. It would be lame for a new freshly dinged lv 100 to kill a few demons and get 720+ rewards instantly.

    what makes you think that he was referring to the ilvl of rewards? Possible rewards could be sets that are actually beautiful and unique for transmog, a good mount, a title, a one time tabard (Like the Argent Dawn one), a toy like Hunting memento, etc. Current rewards are LAME...

    TBH the best review I saw, was one complaining about how characters like Dalaran didn't get built upon. Like, Dalaran was never referred to as a character, how about watching the movie properly before trying to review it...

    Looks like we get 4 sets of transmog gear, it might look good, give it a chance. There's also always a chance that more stuff will be added later on.

    Another reviewer said Duncan Jones could have burnt the movie budget in a parking lot. I don't even understand how someone can say something like this.
    Anyway I loved the movie, seen it twice in Hungary and going once more next week. I suggest you all go and watch it if you like fantasy with awesome spells (and if you're a Warcraft fan, then no excuse not to see in theaters).

    Yeah, they showed awhile back a couple of sets and it's just the warlord crafted gear but it's green and black or w/e.

    It's really unfortunate that people who haven't seen the movie are speaking of it negatively just because "it's a video game movie, so it has to be bad". How close minded and kinda sad honestly. If they saw it and didn't like it, or decided to listen to someone else's review as a reason to not go, that's one thing, but to not even give it a chance based on essentially, nothing...
  1. Eleccybubb's Avatar
    I must say they seem to be going all out on the pre launch at least. Way better than MoP or WoD's so far. Although anything is better than 1 week of a shitty scenario or a few quests and a third of a dungeon revamp.

    Honestly, there should be demon invasions literally everywhere. This IS supposed to be the largest demon invasion ever, right? Also, they should be persistent throughout the expansion to really sell the whole "largest demon invasion ever" thing.

    Agreed. I would love to see occasional invasions of the capital cities as well so that instead of flinging away to Tanaris, we can defend our homes against the Legion.

    Why would you assume they were remotely referring to ilvl? Pre-launch events have always provide some sort of cosmetic/vanity item. This one is just very "meh" in comparison to previous ones. It has nothing to do with trying to compete with your precious ilvl that will be replaced with quest greens in the first quest zone soon.
