New Warrior Legendary Weapon Reveal: Woecleaver

Patch 7.3.5 - Artifact Weapon Ending
During Blizzcon, Blizzard hinted that our artifact weapons were going to get a proper send-off and not continue into the next expansion. We have been able to find hints of just how this will play out. The following dialogue contains spoilers!

Magni Bronzebeard: The sword of Sargeras is poisonin' the very lifeblood of the world. The only vessels capable o' containin' that kind o' power... are the mighty weapons you wield. Raise them up as one.... draw out the corruption from the Dark Titan's blade! Together, champions! For Azeroth!


Patch 7.3.5 - The Nighthold
The uninstanced version of the Nighthold has seen some changes on the PTR, becoming more of a small faction hub. Both Alliance and Horde can visit as of now. There are teleport stations that lead to Dalaran and Orgrimmar usable by the Horde as well as all of your favorite characters from the Suramar campaign, such as Thalyssra and Theryn. Pandaren monks have also arrived to teach the Nightborne the ways of the Monk class.






Patch 7.3.5 -Thunder Totem
While most of the Bloodtotem tribe became corrupted by the Legion, the few who did not have now sought refuge at Thunder Totem. On top of this, Pandaren monks have arrived to teach the Highmountain Tauren the ways of the Monk class.




Patch 7.3.5 - Antorus Instanced Vindicaar
Not much is changed between the raid instance version of the Vindicaar and the one you visit daily. All of the champions involved in the campaign (except Illidan) are now standing together and have new dialogue to address their thoughts now that the Legion is finally defeated. There is also a fully functional Netherlight Crucible that can be teleported to and used during the raid once you can skip to Argus and defeat him first. The skybox has also been updated to show the vastness of space and some void infected planets.




Patch 7.3.5 - New Command Boards
The command boards in Orgrimmar and Stormwind have received visual upgrades on top of a new UI. They use the same menu now that we used to choose our artifact weapons and your options change as you level up. You also get a small picture and a brief description of the zone and what the story will contain.




Patch 7.3.5 - Silithus
The area around the sword in Silithus has also been changed. Azerite nodes have appeared, Horde and Alliance areas have been added, and the ground is no longer red.







Silithus - Live




Patch 7.3.5 - New Racial Icons at Character Creation Screen

    I get that the alliance helped the nightborne but they are now part of the horde (or at lest will be) so they shouldnt be allowed in their city

    Seems like such a lame way to get rid of the strongest weapon in the warcraft universe, and omg YES! Though its not a brand New racial city its something that Nighthold, the Vindicaar and Thunder totem are being updated to be tiny ones, I just bitched about wanting more racial cities a couple days ago

    Aye..... what if I don't want to get rid of it? Just let the planet die and take the space ship to another planet. Or shoot just go to the WOD Draenor. Muhahahaha.

    Is there really any way this could have been pulled off that wasn't lame?

    It is definitely a weird way to get rid of them.
    Doesn't help that that a lot of the weapons just do no make sense to have this kind of "power" (even with the billions of AP we've crammed into it) to disinfect this kind of wound. Some of the weapons may even do more harm than good (Shadow priest, Affl warlock).

    It really was the way everyone figured though, number one reason on here was "cleanse the wound". What makes it lame is everyone already knew, they just didn't want to say because secrets or whatever.

    Just glad we get to keep the weapon appearances, so the system may be gone but the weapon will still be there...visibly at least.

    Really lame way to send off Artifacts if im honest.
    What does it mean for Weapons actually alive like the shadow priest one?
    The one with a Ghost wolf Spirit tied to it
    Hell what about artifacts MADE from fel energies. Just seems like a piss poor reason. And the worse way to make us give them up

    Ideally
    1. Argus the Unmaker should have been stronger
    2. We sacrifice our weapons in an all out attack that kills him
    3. Our weapons are destroyed
    4. Sarg would have just stabbed the planet, not leaving his sword behind
    5. We go back to Azeroth to fight for the lifeblood of the planet, the plot of BFA (Druids and Shamans begin to seal the wound)
    6. Upon returning to Azeroth we have the greatest weapon smiths build us temporary weapons for the battle to come
    7. Upon arriving to Zandalar/Kul Tiras we get questing greens/blues and so on, the old weapon system.

    I would have preferred if our weapons were in some way used to seal sargeras, then Illidan staying with him would have made more sense because he could check that they are still working properly instead of being there becausehe has nothing better to do.

    Looking more and more like there will somehow be a way to play new race in advance (pre order ?)
  1. Leyre's Avatar
    Can someone explain why the fuck we need every single artifact weapon to stop the sword but the god damn "SCEPTER OF SARGERAS" isnt enough???
  1. Baneleaf's Avatar
    Has anyone seen or heard what happens with our order halls. I know the garrison gold making was nerfed because you actually never had to leave your garrison if you set it up properly. However the gold from an order hall can be significant but it takes a decent amount of work to set up. I mainly want to find out if it is going to get nerfed into the ground or if it will remain viable going forward, along with the rogue pick pocket weekly.
