Battle for Azeroth Preview - Stormsong Valley Visitor’s Guide

The lands of Stormsong Valley are lush with green grasses and rock-strewn rolling hills. Wildlife and plant growth thrive here, fed by the inland streams and the invigorating sea air. It is a region made rich by the harmony between both land and sea.


Welcome to Stormsong Valley.


As with any great mystery, you’ll need to find and follow the clues before you. Begin by taking a ferry to the Stormsong Monastery located in Boralus. Perhaps the sisters and brothers there will have more insight on the missing fleet. Thankfully, you won’t be alone for your journey. A ward of Harbormaster Cyrus Crestfall, your guide Taelia is a knowledgeable companion eager to help you get to the bottom of things in Stormsong Valley.

The signs of the sea are everywhere in the monastery, but an itch between your shoulder blades feeds the impression that you’re unwelcome. Answers aren’t easy to come by and danger is lurking nearer than you think.

Word from someone within the resistance is that the fleet is not truly lost but trapped by dark forces. It will be up to you to find allies within Stormsong Valley to help you root out the heart of this conspiracy and bring the fleet home. Brother Pike from the town of Brennadam in the north is one such ally. You’ll need to meet with him to find out what more he knows of the challenges you’ll face.

The Highland Pass is the only land route into Stormsong Valley, but a blockade halts passage between Brennadam and the rest of Kul Tiras. Once you find a way through, you’ll crest the pass to take in the breathtaking sight of the land stretched out before you.

Meet the Neighbors
The reception you’ll receive in Brennadam isn’t a warm one despite the beauty of the surrounding town. The citizens are angry at the soldiers for seizing their harvests and failing to protect the people they are meant to serve. Brother Pike will help find the answers you seek, but each discovery is another knot in a skein that wends through this troubled land. There is more beneath the surface to be discovered, and you sense darkness waiting just out of sight.


The further inland you go, the more apparent it becomes that the void’s corruption has burrowed deeply into the land, the wildlife, and its people. Those of able body (if not able mind) are either conscripted or manipulated into serving the tidesages and the malevolent will that commands them.

Things to Try: A sip of Seaglide Elixir can be a great refreshment when battling void-corrupted creatures of the sea. It also gives you the ability to walk on water—for a little while. “It is said that tidesage magic allows Kul Tiran ships to glide effortlessly through the sea.” Try not to touch too many unfamiliar things unless you know what you’re getting into—though of course, the voices will insist there's nothing to fear. The Whispering Wavestaff giveth and taketh. But then again, what’s a little cost in health compared to laying out a little extra carnage?

Under the Siege
On the western coast, Fort Daelin is under siege by the naga. Brutes pummel the stone walls even as harpoons drive further into the walls above them. Without aid, the levee holding back the sea will plunge the fertile valley into the naga-infested depths.

A Prickly Situation
Emboldened by the soldiers neglecting their duties, vicious creatures have encroached on the noble people of Stormsong. Whether it’s ettin in Millstone Hamlet or the territorial quilboar, these threats will only grow more aggressive without someone to push them back.

Monsters of the Sea
On an island to the northeast resides the seat of power for both House Stormsong and the tidesages: the Shrine of the Storm. Its very foundations are carved into the rocky outcroppings, and the sign of the kraken adorns its ancient structures.

Shrine of the Storm Dungeon--Spoilers Inside!
The Shrine of the Storm is a seat of power for both House Stormsong and the tidesages. Here, blessings upon the fleet are performed to ensure that the Kul Tiran fleet knows no equals in combat. Yet, a dark force has corrupted these sacred grounds and threatens to steal control of the Kul Tiran Fleet forever.

Difficulties: Normal, Heroic, Mythic
Level: Alliance* 110+ (One of four level-up dungeons)

*Available at level 120 for Alliance and Horde

Aqu’sirr – The deeps hide many powerful secrets lost to time. A master of these waters, Lord Stormsong calls upon one of these creatures of myth to defend the sacred shrine.

Tidesage Council – Brother Ironhull and Galecaller Faye use their power to bless the Kul Tiran ships and ensure their fleet remains unmatched on the seas.

Lord Stormsong – Master of House Stormsong, Lord Stormsong leads the tidesages in tehri oceanic blessigns and ways. However, not all is as it seems. . . .

Vol’zith the Whisperer – Sent by Queen Azshara to subvert the tidesages, Vol’zith whispers promises of power to those willing to listen.

There’s a long road to take through this beautiful but treacherous land. Bringing House Stormsong back into the fold and freeing the Kul Tiran fleet are paramount to defending the kingdom against the Horde's incursion. Those brave enough to explore Stormsong Valley's vast coastlines will meet a brave, noble people who embrace the land they live in and the bountiful sea they so love.

When you’re ready to go beyond the lands of Stormsong Valley, the stygian hills of Drustvar await to the southwest, and to the southeast lies the capital of Kul Tiras, Tiragarde Sound.

    I want it to end as fast as possible, and blizzard just keeps fucking it up for me and many others.
    Wq are not fun content. It is a chore. Over.
    Don't need to be a white knight or fanboy to understand that Blizzard has a goal of how they want people to consume content.

    Honestly, whenever blizzard breaks addons on purpose, trying to counter it is always the WORST thing you can do, cause they end up gutting the API even harder and hurting other addons.

    We lost custom friendly nameplates in raid cause people went out of their way to bring radars/lines back when blizzard had already made their stance clear on it., as just one example. When blizzard makes bad decisions get to forums and complain, but doing things like this is just going to hurt more users.

    One thing I've learned over years as addon developer, do not arms race blizzard. If they break something, EVEN IF YOU FIND A WORK AROUND, just don't. Use the work around internally with guildies and friends via a WA or something. You throw that work around in blizzards face and all you will get in return is "oh you think so huh? have a big fat plate of FU" back from blizzard.

    the people always trying to counter every single change Blizzard makes are playing a dangerous game
    then blizzard can go f... themselves - they will only loose players

    its a ridiculous war in 2018 where every other mmorpg has automated grouping as core game feature.

    The dev team that says LFR should remain in game to give casuals more options to complete content without much time investment is upset people come up with adds to help casuals complete content without much time investment and constantly try to break them.

    Thanks Ion.

    Then it becomes a game of how many FUs one can take before stopping to be a customer. It is Blizzard who cannot win by being dirks constantly

    As a Blizzard customer, I will do everything in my power to destroy this new, dangerous automatic add-on.

    You mod makers are out of control!

    Down with lazy gamer mods!

    If i find that some part of the content is too annoying, i just go do something else.
    Since my subscription never runs out for more than 2 days there is no reason to slow down content to increase my subscription time.
    There are always dungeons to do, professions to perfect, achievements without world quests to do and raids to prepare for.
    There are friends and guildmates that would help you rush through boring parts and focus on something else.
    Maybe leveling an alt of an allied race instead if all you have left to do is wait for the next weekly raid reset
    I won't let anyone make my decisions for me about what i should do or not. So we can calmly discuss the fact and shake our heads and ask for explanations but the tone is far too hostile around the recent discussions to come to a reasonable solution. Insults do not lead anywhere.

    this is not gonna fix using your alt to share lockout trick. blizz wanted to stop auto grouping, but they ended up hurting people farming mounts

    Dont forget that the major thing earning $ is the cash shop and NOT the subs. So you can go on and quit, "fanboys" will always pay more than your subs anyway
    I know someone who bought 3 tokens in a single month

    but groups for world quests? no we better make that real hard.

    what the actual fuck? fuck off being stupid and finish those classes you couldn't get ready in like 9 fucking months of beta.
    It's not only WQs. I really don't understand the profit of manually typing "Thelongestraidnameinthegame Normal 210+" or "Dafuqisthisbosscalledagain war mode off".

    Takes 2 sec of time and limits bots, thats the only thing it does. Its not to annoy players. Blizzard has no interest in doing that... I've always typed the description in the raid finder manually omg is it that hard ? I dont understand...

    New world quest group finder has already been developed. Only realm+shard based though.

    At this pace all of them are going to be phased out sooner or later.

    i love to see someone trying to get a way around this shitty change. As a single-player, when over time, all of my guildmates quit, i loved the groupfinder to get things dome on a less populated realm.

    If nothing else works, just go back to classic things like "whisper 'inv' to get invited"... there were addons reading the chat and inviting ppl then... automating the /w inv and doing the /i xxx shouldn't be that difficult i guess

    Until blizzard disables that function too.

    Honestly thanks to all the addon developers blizzard is going to remove alot of good and nice functionality that is not being abused because some people just dont get the hint.
