There’s a very good reason I never touched World of Warcraft in my ten odd years of gaming. Every time I mentioned it I was warned, “It will suck you in, and you will never get out.” With that in mind, I could not wait to jump back into the latest World of Warcraft expansion – Legion. If you thought World of Warcraft would consume your life in the previous expansions, it’s probably best to stay away from this one.

From our time travel back in Warlords of Draenor, Gul’dan decides it’s his duty to bring back the Legion, and bosses of old, to wreak havoc on Azeroth once more. This is exactly where you find yourself, where it all began in Dalaran. Only this time you’re met with odd decisions, and the feeling that something is not quite right. It’s important to note that the last time the Burning Legion led their assault on Azeroth, the Alliance and Horde banded together to put an end to it. This time, things are a bit… different.

Raise your weapon

Sitting around on Monday evening, awaiting the launch, the only thing keeping me awake (on top of praying that servers held) was the quest for my Artifact Weapon. Each Artifact Weapon is dependent on your class, and yes you can own a weapon for each one of your specialisations. The Class Order Campaign begins with accepting the responsibility of wielding this Artifact, and aiding your allies in retrieving it from the clutches of some or other demon.

If you’ve ever felt like you’re just a gun for hire in the World of Warcraft, the Artifact weapon does away with those unguided feelings – as you now have an ancient Artifact equipped, along with a greater sense of responsibility. And it packs a punch. Part of the now endless grind that is Legion is slowly upgrading this Artifact by increasing its Power from quests and instances. My bow, as a Hunter, was perhaps not as famous as Ashbringer or Doomhammer, but the bow of Alleria Windrunner would more than suffice.

Better Artifact Weapon

The biggest realisation as to why you’d need this weapon becomes clear as the story goes on. You begin to understand that no mere forged weapon can defeat the Legion. The need to continuously grind and upgrade your Artifact becomes of utmost importance as the story progresses.
With that in mind, I feel this is the best place to begin. It’s well known that I have my opinions about Blizzard, but one thing I can never fault them on is their ability to tell a damned good story, and Legion is no exception.

Stay awhile and listen

The curve ball Blizzard threw in Warlord’s of Draenor left a lot of die-hard lore fans scratching their heads as they tried to figure out what direction Blizzard had in mind for the last few instalments of World of Warcraft. The pre-expansion story tied up beautifully with the ending of Warlords, where the Alliance and Horde would once again band together. Only this time a bit of a misunderstanding between both factions left equal feelings of betrayal. It kicks off an incredible journey as you prepare yourself to fight off the Legion.

Unsure whether you will have the aid of your sworn enemies, the first phase of questing gives you the option of four separate zones. In each zone, a crucial part of the main story is revealed, coupled with amazing cinematics featuring your favourite heroes. I, of course, play as part of the Horde, so speaking of the natural progression through the story, I can honestly tell you it’s one hell of a roller coaster. To avoid all spoilers, let me just say everything begins to make sense, at the same time nothing makes sense – but there is an eerie feeling of distrust and skepticism, making way for euphoria as you complete each zone.

Thunder Totem

While terrain and detail felt lacking in Warlord’s of Draenor, Blizzard pulled out all the stops for Legion as each zone complimented the story as you progressed. I found myself spending far too much time wondering around aimlessly through specific zones, not because I was horribly lost (which I was at times), but because every now and then I was treated to a nostalgic, scenic display of a crucial part of the lore.

My favourite zone? Of the four starting zones (Stormheim, Val’Shara, Aszuna and Higmountain) my favourite had to be Highmountain. The rocky terrain split viciously by rivers and waterfalls left me speechless as I aided Mayla Highmountain, once again banding together to take on the demonic Legion. There were just so many nostalgic throwbacks to older content, so many questions answered, coupled with by far the best story out of all four starting zones.

Highmountain

In terms of the unfolding story at hand, Legion makes the levelling process enjoyable as the experience can be best described as inclusive. Your presence in each specific zone is tied to the main quest at hand – stopping the Legion attack.

A sense of belonging

The levelling process in Legion was by far one of the best I had ever experienced. Since this was only my second ever expansion, I took to asking around to see if there was a difference of opinion. Surprisingly, everyone I spoke to agreed that the levelling process in Legion was near perfect. Much of this can be accredited to the story, but the quests themselves felt unique – unlike any I’d experienced before.

Often with expansions the storyline unfolds at a pace which might fall short of the maximum level. In Warlords of Draenor, I reached level 98 upon completing the quests – which meant I had two aimless levels to grind before reaching level 100. In Legion, I hit level 110 as I completed the last chapter of Highmountain, which happened to be my last zone.
Since I missed out on previous expansions, the greatest achievement was defeating each zone’s boss in the Dungeon which followed after chapter completion. Here you received a crucial piece of the Pillars of Creation. Tools used by the Titans themselves to forge Azeroth. It’s unclear what their purpose is, but I have my theories.

Neltharions Laire
Neltharion’s Lair – The Dungeon instance for the last chapter of Highmountain where you take down Dragul to get one of the Pillars of Creation

Everything seemed to tie in perfectly, and a lot of this is due to the Class Hall Missions and Blizzard’s emphasis on Professions in Legion. Your Class Order Hall differs greatly between classes, but each one is created to complement your choice. For Hunters you’re sitting high above Highmountain at the Trueshot Lodge, while Mages take rest in Dalaran.

The missions tie closely with your class, and once again you feel as if you really have a purpose in the defence of Azeroth as you train up your followers and send them out on missions as well. Every little piece of the levelling up and questing has a significance, and I cannot stress how incredible this experience is.
Pillars of Creation

You might think that’s about it? But this is only the beginning.

The real grind begins

Where Warlords of Draenor fell short on end-game content, Legion more than makes up for it. Expecting some end game cinematic of the Legion fleeing into the Nether, I was let down when I completed all four starting zones and the story was still not complete.

Once you hit level 110 you unlock Suramar, the most infuriatingly rewarding place in the entire World of Warcraft. Here your chapters are dictated by your reputation with the controlling faction – The Nighfallen. Your first seven chapters send you all around an ancient place; once peaceful but now lost to some person who became corrupted by the promise of power (a recurring theme in World of Warcraft). Every mob hits like a truck, and Suramar is what MMO players call a “gear check.” This was the roughest experience for me in Legion as questing felt tedious, but the story once again pulled me through it all. Once you’ve completed the seven chapters, you need to up your reputation which involves grinding your heart out. Mostly by farming reputation which is strenuous and time-consuming.

Mana Tree
The Mana Tree, which is revived throughout the first chapters of Suramar.

Suramar, visually, is an incredible place. It’s always somewhat upsetting when you see a beautiful place turned upside down because one person just had to accept insurmountable power from some demonic being. Don’t you just hate it when that happens? Aesthetics aside, Suramar is the last zone where your story plays out, but it’s going to take me a few more weeks of mind-numbingly grinding out reputation to finally see what happens.

This is one of my primary gripes with Legion. While the level quests and first zones tied perfectly, Suramar’s importance will soon fade as the die-hard raiders (which I consider myself to be) will focus heavily on gearing up for the raids, as opposed to chasing a storyline. It’s clear that Blizzard wanted you to complete the story, but the one drawing point is the Artifact Power you gain from quests, and that’s easily one of the most important rewards as you move on.

Surmar City
Suramar city, the most rage inducing area in the entire expansion.

Again, this is only half of the grind. Next up is World Quests, Blizzard’s second answer to end-game content. Each day you are given World Quests where you need to complete four quests in a certain zone for a reward.

Supposedly, Legendary Items are hidden in these reward caches but I’ve yet to see one. The World Quests range through varying types of missions, but each one has the recurring aim of defeating the Legion. This is the main reputation grind as completing these quests in specific zones earns you reputation with that faction.
Each World Quest has a time limit and specific rewards from gear, Artifact Power, gold, or Class Hall resources. This is an incredible addition as they keep you busy for hours on end and act as a great way to improve on your gear, upgrade your Artifact, and make sure your Class Hall gets improved on. I’ve already done over 70 World Quests and while typing this, all I can think of is the ones I am now missing out on.

Legion will consume my life for the next several months, I’ve come to accept that. The game offers too much. From grinding dungeons, reputation, and World Quests to preparing for Raids, which only release on the 20th of September. This is part one of my review of Legion, as next I plan to tackle Player vs. Player, which also received significant changes in Legion. In the meantime I’ll continue devoting endless hours to World of Warcraft while enjoying what could be the best soundtrack since Wrath of the Lich King.

    Great write up (and dammit fuck you WoW, stop being so enticing) – I just want to know from an old-timer like myself what it’s like too. There are so many varied opinions of this game it’s hard to properly gauge from any one viewpoint what it’s actually going to be like.

      I took a look at the talent tree’s on offer, and they have dumbed them down a massive amount compared to WotLK (when i last played, the last time i thought it was good), so that put me off, but the artifact system seems really interesting

      I’m also in the same position, seeing some good reviews about it but nothing that has convinced me to jump back in

        Yeah the Talent tree changed a fair bit, but now each and every choice has an impact on your build. Only now you can respec any time you like out of combat. That’s what it was in WoD, and it worked much better than the old system.

        They pruned abilities … not dumbed them down. You can choose to run a high passive talent build to dumb it down yourself but in most cases that would mean less dps. Also please note that there are spells not in your spellbook and are tied to your artifact itself. Thus a druid looks pretty dumbed down with its 4 buttons up untill you realise their rotation includes 3 more spells all on 6 second cd timers called new moon half moon and full moon each having different cast time and dmg/aoe dmg but tied together in one package.

        Yeah they simplified some spellbooks (I don’t have Power Word: Shield as a holy priest anymore?) but I think the trade off is they expect everyone to move quickly now and react faster. My spells also interact in new interesting ways and some things that used to be buffs are just now built in.

            Well yes, but that’s relative. The old WoW had things that were a literal pain in the ass. Like doing a dungeon. You a) had to spam LFG chat for an hour to find a group. You had to be in a city to do so, so no lvling during that time. And then once that was done, b) two people had to physically go to the entrance of the dungeon where it was in the world to summon the other 3. And then the dungeon was done in 15 minutes. So 1 hour 30, for 15 minutes. every. Time.

            That’s not even touching on the grind to lvl, and the rep grind. Just ask anyone who has done the nether drake grind. You talk about a couple weeks in this article. Imagine a few months worth of dedicated daily grind. For a mount and bragging rights. And before that, the Timberhold grind. Killing mobs for 10 rep a piece was the only way to get rep. Yup.

            So yeah, easier is a GOOD thing.

People were just sour at the pandas cause pandas were never in warcraft (W3 Org building bonus missions introduced Chen Stormstout so I beg to differ) WoD was log in check garrion log out.

      Druids have the emerald Dreamway leading into their Order Hall. Sorry to say but yours pales in comparison. 😛

        You have the soul of a sleepy bear while I have the soul of a Warrior 😛
        Never played Druids, just didn’t fit me really. But we have drinking and fighting! And after a few drinks the Valkyries…wow cannot divulge those secrets 😛

    Couple of things.

    “Here your chapters are dictated by your reputation with the controlling faction – The Nighfallen.”

    The nightfallen is not the controlling faction but rather the rebel faction. The Nightborn are the controlling faction. Sorta like Empire and Rebels. (Cause Star Wars :P).

    Secondly Legion Legendaries are extremely rare 0.000001%(beta) drop chance for the ring I really want. So don’t expect it to just drop any time soon. 😛

    Also you forgot to mention that World Quest rewards scale to your Gear Level …. got 820? Then 820+ gear will drop.

    Also Mythic+ should be mentioned.

      Forgot the Honorable mention of the 4th artifact weapon you can get (well 5th for druids).

      The fishing rod!

        A friend has already grinded this (and the Shark mount). Gent has waaaay too much time on his hands.

      I completely forgot about the Mythic+ (it will be discussed in my raid + dungeon review). In terms of the Nightborn/Nightfallen, that was a booboo on my part. Also, speaking of World Quests, I have an 840+ Mythic ring to go find. Thanks for reminding me 😀

    Enjoying Legion so much…at last a great expansion since WotLK…Cata, Mists and WoD were ok (I hated Cata), but Legion is absolutely amazing.
    – The lore (as mentioned) is brilliant, the way it leads you through each area and ties back to the main storyline.
    – The Artifact weapons and their class spec individual missions and stories are juts amazing (and if you’ve done a Frost DK, you will probably think the same I am about what might be happening in some of the coming expansions), the skill trees on the weapons also make it so much fun, as it reminds me of the original skill trees of BC…

    – Suramar City is an actual city…confusing as heck, and HUGE, but so awesome!
    – World quests are fun, although sometimes a little tedious, but the rewards are great, and doing them with friends are great!
    – Mythic dungeons are tough, but great fun – cannot wait for Mythic+ (pretty much like D3’s Greater rifts)
    – Kara, now being part of the Legion lore (due to it’s original connection with Medhiv) will be getting a 5-man 9-boss release with the next patch, and will be a 5-man mini-raid (harder than a standard mythic dungeon), as well as new world quests that will be added for Suramar

    Overall, I absolutely love this expansion, so do a few friends who have returned to try WoW again, and if Blizzard keep to their promises of more regular patches, which has been one of the major issues during the last few expansions, it might just increase the player base again.

    Come on, give it a go, you know you want too 🙂

    For anyone new jumping into legion and keeping this relatively spoiler free here’s a couple things I wish I knew about a particular scenario:

    Eventually you will take on a quest from Khadgar that involves both Prophet Velen, the Exodar and Light’s Heart. This should be enough to tip you off to which scenario I’m referring to. So when you get there do the following:

    1. Talk to Prophet Velen as per the quest but after DON’T DO ANY QUEST OBJECTIVES instead look on your map and make a beeline for the quest (!). It’s an easy 48k xp. Second, when you kill the big bad at the end of this scenario you will be given an item that will teleport you out. Start the teleporter but then CANCEL IT immediately. Because only after you kick off your teleporter does another event play out. And if you let the teleporter do its thing you will not see this event. Not going to say what happens but it’s kinda big and important. So you definitely don’t want to miss it.

    I have a feeling that it’s a bug and that it will eventually be fixed but until then – follow the directions above. You’re welcome :).

    Just a thought: less than 10 days out and you’ve completed the main four zones with rep grind the only thing left to do…. What does this expansion look like in 1 year?

    dontu mean the grind fest is back? thats all you do in legion grind your atifact power the entire expansion.aslo getting 110 is 24hrs is ridiculous they should have just let you boost to 110 from the start.

    also gear doesnt matter anymore in pvp.this mmo is still going down hill its just riding the hype train as a wow expansion always does at launch then a month later its back donw to where it was the decline.

    im glad i left wow.

      The level to 110 took my about 12 hours (took my friends about 10). It’s not really that hard, and the story makes it worthwhile.

      I’ve never been much of a PvP player but I am leveling my Windwalker Monk atm to give PvP a ago.

        wow is still going be on the decline after the first month.

          We will have to wait and see. However, if Blizzard add more raid instances (WoD only had 3) and so far Legion has 3 out which become available on the 20th of September. There’s also Mythic + which is a challenging dungeon like Greater Rifts in Diablo.

          I think they’re doing a lot more with this expansion, so I wouldn’t write it off just yet.

            to what point to go from item level 810 to 820? there is nothing to do in wow except to grind artifact weapons.

            youy dont need to do raids in wow 5 man mythics and cet you the top gear thats in 25 man raids.how many nstances can you do untill you get tired of running them for a whole year or longs?

            when people start to relize its nothing but a huge grind numbers will start to fall again.

            how long can you do the same nstances over and over tfor a year with out getting tired of them?
