HCT Bahamas: Live Un'Goro Card Reveals

Patch 7.2 Preparation
Patch 7.2 is just around the corner, so we’ve put together this list of things players might want to complete before the patch goes live this Tuesday.

Table of Contents



Get Your Artifact Weapon to at Least 35 Traits
Patch 7.2 introduces reworks to the existing Artifact Weapon system:
  • Once you’ve earned 35 traits in your Artifact Weapons, you’ll be eligible for a new questline to empower your weapon.
  • Once completed, you'll be able to spend Artifact Power on new Empowered traits, new ranks for existing traits, and a new Infinite trait, which features 50 ranks.
  • Players who have put Artifact Power into their weapons beyond 35 traits will have all of this AP refunded and be able to allocate it to new traits.
  • Previously earned Artifact Power items will not be usable on the empowered Artifact Weapon, so don't stockpile your AP tokens.



Cap Your Artifact Knowledge



Complete Order Hall Class Campaign
  • To continue with your order hall campaign in 7.2, you must have completed all currently available order hall quests.
  • In 7.2, players can earn a new champion, class-specific achievements, and the achievement Champions of Legionfall
  • Completion of the order hall class campaign awards your class-specific flying mount. You can check them out here.



Collect 25,000 Order Resources for New Order Hall Research
  • If you haven’t already been stockpiling Order Resources, you’ll want to start farming in order to purchase the two new order hall upgrades.
  • The first upgrade (tier 7) costs 10,000 x Order Resources and takes one day to research.
  • The second (tier 8) costs 15,000 x Order Resources and research completion will take 5 days.
  • You’ll also need Order Resources for purchasing new artifact knowledge ranks (which now caps at 50).



Earn the Broken Isles Pathfinder, Part One Achievement
  • Complete the first Broken Isles Pathfinder achievement so you can work towards Broken Isles Pathfinder, Part Two once the patch is live.

As a recap, here’s what you’ll need to do to earn that first achievement:



Max Reputations to Exalted for the Paragon System
  • You're now able to keep earning reputation with a faction even after reaching Exalted.
  • For each 10,000 reputation earned past Exalted, you will earn a supply reward similar to those awarded by Emissary Quests.
  • These supply rewards have a chance to drop new, faction-exclusive mounts and toys.
  • After earning 10 of these rewards, you’ll earn the achievement Paragon of the Broken Isles.
  • You won’t be able to gain reputation from insignias earned from world quests, so there’s no point in holding onto those.

Here are the reward items you’ll have a chance to receive:



Level Class Hall Champions
  • Level all Class Hall Champions to 110 and cap their item level.
  • All Champions will now be able to reach Legendary quality, which unlocks a third equipment slot.
  • Once Legendary, Champions will not be able to earn any more experience.
  • You’ll be able to have one more active Champion, so make sure you have six Champions ready for missions.
  • Don’t forget that you can take Combat Ally Champions with you on world quests.



Gather Materials for New Crafted BoE Legendary Items



Sell Excess Gathered Materials Before Flying is Unlocked



Level Battle Pets
  • Patch 7.2 introduces the first Pet Battle Dungeon, Wailing Critters.
  • You’ll need to be level 110 and have one level 25 pet for the one-time scenario, but it's ideal to have three level 25 pets.
  • You’ll need 15 max level pets for the Pet Battle Challenge: Wailing Caverns weekly scenario.



Collect Transmog Items
  • Patch 7.2 adds a new “Sets” tab to the Appearances interface, so you can browse all item sets available to your character and see which items you are missing.
  • The interface will tell you where to get the items, so you can complete missing sets.
  • New achievements, such as Mogg-Saron and Sha of Fabulous, have been added for collecting PVE and PVP item sets.
  • Earning 10 of these achievements will earn you the character title, “Stylist,” awarded by Azeroth’s Next Top Model.

IMPORTANT: What follows is purely an estimation based on current ladder rankings and participation. The final cutoffs will only be determined once Legion Season 2 has actually concluded, and have the potential to be significantly different than what is listed below due to a wide variety of factors. Meeting or exceeding one of these cutoffs does not in any way guarantee that you will receive that tier of rewards once the season has ended.

Estimated 3v3 Arena Cutoffs:
  • Fearless Gladiator (Horde): 2820

  • Gladiator (Alliance): 2580
  • Duelist (Horde): 2170

  • Rival (Horde): 1920
  • Rival (Alliance): 1900
  • Challenger (Horde): 1640
  • Challenger (Alliance): 1630

Estimated Rated Battleground Cutoffs:

  • Hero of the Alliance: 2530
  • Guardian of the Horde: 2190
  • Guardian of the Alliance: 2120
  • Defender of the Horde: 1910
  • Defender of the Alliance: 1870
  • Soldier of the Horde: 1670
  • Soldier of the Alliance: 1670

Remember, these are only a projection of what the final cutoffs could be based on current ladder standings.

These are not a guarantee of what will be finalized once the season has finished.

    yeah I don't get why they don't just baseline lower the price on boosts, they would probably sell 2x to 3x as many if they dropped the price by like $20 bucks, I mean you have to really really hate leveling to be willing to drop retail price for a brand new AAA game to boost a single character

    To be fair the idea of a boost value is to not make you go crazy and buy a load at once which I do understand. My point was they are jacking up the prices in less than 2 weeks and they discounted all the other services except that.

    But yeah with a boost being £49 soon for us hell no. Leveling takes no time at all.

    Be sure that your artifact knowledge is maxed out.
    This should be clarified. You don't NEED to have Artifact Knowledge maxed out. Once 7.2 goes live, you'll be able to insta-buy research notes for 500 resources per, up to lvl 25.

    So if, say, you're at AK20 when 7.2 drops, you can immediately get up to AK25 with 2500 order resources (5 notes at 500 resources per).

    36 traits is better than 35 traits if you plan on using that spec at all (and not much more work). 35 lets you upgrade your weapon, but 36 lets you get the equivalent of pre-7.2 54 traits.

    Also, while the rep tokens cannot be used for post-exalted rewards, they will vendor for a modest amount of gold. So don't destroy them if you've been holding onto some all this time.

    So the crafted legendaries are now boe. You can now directly buy legendary gear with real money. I know boosting has always been a thing but you still had to jump through a lot of hoops to make that happen. This has crossed another point where i didnt think we'd get to.

    They're basically just ilvl... you've been able to buy certain gear for gold for YEARS, right now you could hit 865+ in every slot for gold... what difference does it make that a 940 can be bought for gold? You'd still be at or below N NH ilvl.

    If you want to see ACTUAL p2w, go look at rift, you can buy current raid gear for money >.>

    Short answer, you don't, longer answer.... to have a DH you need a higher lever character which means you have SOME character you can get it on.

    We've seen a million puns in achievement names already, but surely there has never been one as glorious as "Mogg-Saron".

    And if you haven't, why would you feel the need to instantly jump into the new 7.2 stuff when there's so much stuff you haven't looked at yet?

    I'm a little confused. When 7.2 hits, all spec traits go to 35 ( assuming all specs are >=35). Can I use the excess AP to respec or will the AP be stuck on the same spec?

    eg: balance 43 / feral 36. After 7.2 balance 35 / feral 35. Can I use AP to make feral 35++++ / balance 35 or I can use the excess AP ONLY for balance/feral?

    regards

    The AP will remain on the weapon you originally put it on.

    I've just been leveling up and it's my first time with Legion content. I'm at level 108 and hoping to hit 110 today or tomorrow and haven't used any of the AP gaining items that you get throughout the zones. Got like 4 hexweave bags full of these tokens and was wondering, do I need to use them all by Tuesday or else they will all disappear? Just want to make sure I don't lose out as I've been planning to use them once I hit max level since I want to use them on my healing spec, but have been leveling with an Enhancement dps spec.
