Comparing the Hall of Shadows: Legion Alpha

Since it was first announced that the rogue class hall would be located in the Dalaran sewers, there has been much debate over whether its an appropriate or “cool” setting for them. That I can understand, but many people have been claiming that, besides a few new rooms, it is completely copy-pasted from Wrath of the Lich King’s Dalaran. This can hardly be farther from the truth. Everything in the Hall of Shadows was remade from scratch, and so I’ve made a series of screenshots comparing the Hall of Shadows as it currently exists in the Legion Alpha, to the corresponding section of the Underbelly on live servers. Now you can decided for yourself how “recycled” the rogue class hall may be.

Screenshots from Stormheim: Legion Alpha

While Stormheim and Highmountain are technically open for testing on the Legion Alpha servers, a glitch has made accessing them via quests, or doing any of the main quests in the zones, impossible at the moment. However, by water walking there I was able to reach Stormheim and take a few screenshots before the game crashed.

Unfortunately I don’t have much time for discussion, so there won’t be anything beyond the pictures and a short description below.

Legion Theory : The Artifacts part Four

ArtifactTheory4

Hello everyone, and welcome to this final part of my Legion theory for the Artifacts. As only 3 class are missing on the list, this week will be focused on the Monks, Druids and Demon Hunters. I hope you have enjoyed reading that crazy big theory (even with some issues with the website, for that I would apologies). Once again I would thanks Nobbel87 for his help since when I started to wrote the draft of the first part he was also working on its own video about the “Possible Arfifact for Legion” and I can just highly recommend his video (strange fact, most of the artifacts were the same when we shares our notes).

You can find the previous part on the links just below, until I make an ultimate article gathering all the parts into an unique one.

In this area, the events of the expansion will be put forward, a huge part of this article is based on quotes from developers during the presentation of Legion and with also some personal speculation. If you want to have the full surprise when the time comes, please wait outside 😀.

Legion Theory : The Artifacts part One

Artifact Theory

Greetings everyone. With BlizzCon getting closer each day, we wanted to give you some World of Warcraft content while waiting for Legion’s beta. So I decided to start my little brain to search for some ideas on which Artifacts would be the more appropriate for each class.

Of course, during the Legion’s presentation at GamesCom a few of them have been already announced but not all of them. So starting today and every Friday I’ll give you my thoughts on which Artifacts players could get during their adventure on the Broken Shores.

Before that, I would like to thanks Nobbel (if you love Warcraft lore, you should check his videos. They are great!), for his suggestions about some of them, especially the warlocks which I’ll reveal in a few weeks. So enjoy and tell us what do you think about those theories!

Five Predictions for World of WarCraft: Legion

wow-legion-box-art-2Yesterday, World of WarCraft: Legion was announced at Gamescom, and I am hyped! I’m much more cautious than I’ve been with any other expansion announcement, after what happened with Warlords of Draenor. Yet I still can’t help but be really excited. With only two announcement trailers and a single panel, we don’t have too much to go on about Legion‘s storyline and overall path so far. In this absence of information, I’ve taken what we do know to make five predictions on what will happen in the expansion, and where it will lead us to in the future. Find out what these predictions are behind the read-more!

Age of Azshara: Zone Outline (Fan Expansion Concept, part 2)

ageofazshara_720

Well, the imminent Gamescom expansion announcement has blown the wind of out of my sails (pun not intended). I was 90% certain we’d see the reveal at BlizzCon, and thought I’d have several months to outline Age of Azshara before the real expansion was announced. I guess we’ll see what the expansion is, and if its similar enough to this I might as well stop. Until then, though, here’s a list of the zones in Age of Azshara and their backgrounds.

Wrathion and the Legendary Ring

To those who have yet to finish the Legendary Questline, I warn you now: massive spoilers ahead.

With 6.2 comes many things: access to a fel-consumed Tanaan Jungle, the final conflict with the Iron Horde, a direct confrontation with the Legion itself, and, arguably most importantly, the conclusion to Warlords of Draenor’s Legendary Ring questline.

World of Warcraft: Age of Azshara, a fan-expansion concept by the Red Shirt Guy (Part 1)

We’re in that unfortunate period of time where all the major story patches for the current expansion have been released, and the next one is still months away from being announced. With little to report on, my thoughts have turned to what said next expansion might be. So for the next few weeks, I will be doing a series of articles detailing the expansion concept I’ve created. We’ll talk about major features, zones, dungeons and raids, storyline and more! This first article will be a general outline of the expansion concept.
