Broken Shore

How to gear up for Tomb of Sargeras So you want to start raiding Tomb of Sargeras, but you don’t have enough gear. Well you’re in luck! Patch 7.2 and 7.2.5 made it relatively easy to get caught up so you can jump right into the new raid. Tomb of Sargeras LFR requires 860 to queue while dropping 885 gear, so I’d say...

Spiritual Guidance: Diving into The Sunken Vault for your Priest class mount Everything these past 11 weeks has led to this. You’ve defeated the Nighthold, assaulted the Broken Shore, defended the Broken Isles, built up the armies of Legionfall, and breached the Tomb of Sargeras itself. Now we go for our reward, the epitome of the Light and our class as a Priest. The lore behind the...




Lightsworn: Stirring in the Shadows for the Paladin class mount If you’ve been dutifully plugging away and finishing all the special Broken Shore weekly quests up until now, you should have earned Breaching the Tomb for completing the Legionfall campaign. Assuming you’re Revered with the Armies of Legionfall by now, this means you’ve also unlocked something else: a questline that rewards a shiny, Paladin-only class mount!...

What’s your weirdest reason to come back? Okay, I’ll just admit it. I started playing WoW again seriously because I love my current transmog. I’ve been kind of playing occasionally while playing other games (Mass Effect: Andromeda, Diablo 3) but after a couple of decent drops I realized my ilevel was inching towards 900 and, more importantly, I look good. Even my...

Is the grind too daunting to come back? I took a month off from World of Warcraft to play Diablo 3 and some other games we don’t cover here. My last few times in WoW since coming back have been… somewhat disheartening. Everyone is flying, and I’m not even Honored with Legionfall yet. The rep grinds are extremely daunting, not to mention all...

Latest hotfixes take another pass at Prot Paladin Artifact Challenges A new round of patch 7.2 hotfixes have been released, and while the list is short, it contains some notable changes. Protection Paladins trying their hands at the Artifact Challenge will find it just a little easier as both Inquisitor Variss and Highlord Kruul have had their health reduced. In addition, Death Knights, Druids, and...




Latest WoW hotfixes address Tank Artifact Challenge and more A new round of Legion hotfixes have been released, and while the list is short, it contains some pretty important changes. Tanks that are trying to finish their Artifact Challenge should find the experience a little easier to accomplish after a series of gentle nerfs and buffs to various mobs in the encounter. Several changes...

Have you unlocked flying yet? Now that Blizzard has removed the Legion Assault achievement from the list of requirements to unlock flying in this expansion, the path to flight is open. If you completed Broken Isles Pathfinder Part 1 before Patch 7.2 went live, then the only requirements to finish Part 2 are exploring the Broken Shore and getting to...



Are the Burning Legion a monochromatic enemy? Is it just us, or is the Broken Shore kind of same-y? I don’t mean the quests or what have you so much as I mean the appearance of the place — kind of a mix of black and green everywhere, with big jagged rocks infested with demons and big green/black towers studding the place....

Do you like WoW’s Legion Assaults? Legion Assaults started this week and, honestly, I’ve found them to be pretty lackluster. Blizzard said they’d be like the pre-expansion invasions but so far they’ve been somewhat of a letdown. Invasions were great. Players of all levels would charge in, swarming the zone, heading off together to each objective. And if you missed one...

Legion Assaults are now live in WoW If you’re working on Broken Isles Pathfinder Part Two (come on, you are) you’ll be relieved to know that you can start working on Defender of the Broken Isles. That achievement is earned by completing all of the new Legion Assaults, which are now live on NA servers. The first Assault is in Azsuna and will...

Mage Tower now live on NA realms, solo artifact challenge available In North America, the Mage Tower on the Broken Shore is now live, unlocking (among other perks) the solo Artifact Challenges for a special artifact appearance. There are other benefits to the Mage Tower, of course — portals between the various Legion zones and the Tower, for example, or Veiled Wyrmtongue Caches spawning with chances...

Nethershard farming has gotten harder in latest hotfixes There’s no hiding it: as we’ve stumbled through the Timeless Isles Tanaan Jungle the Broken Shore we’ve stumbled into more than a few bugs. The latest hotfixes squash a few more Broken Shore problems and continue to address class issues Blizzard has had trouble with. But the big news here is Nethershards. Over the weekend you...

How do you like the Broken Shore? With patch 7.2 comes the advent of the Broken Shore, a familiar concept to us by now. Not only because it’s the place we started the expansion in, but because it brings an outdoor zone with various activities, resources to farm up, and content to unlock. It’s not dissimilar to the Isle of Thunder combined...

Blizzard previews patch 7.2’s Broken Shore If you were wondering what’s going to happen on the Broken Shore, Blizzard has an official preview for you. If you remember Mists of Pandaria‘s Timeless Isle or Warlords’ Tanaan Jungle zones, then this won’t be utterly unfamiliar. You’ll be returning to the Broke Shore to establish a beachhead to fight the Legion, with all...

Ashbringer Artifact
New patch 7.2 PTR build brings new Artifact Traits, Broken Shore content The patch 7.2 PTR is about to get a new build, and it’s a doozy. Up until now the PTR has been focused on testing the Legion Assaults and feature changes, but now we’re looking at the quest chains to unlock the new Artifact Traits coming in patch 7.2. There are a total of seven...
