Continuing my druids journey in Legion Alpha …
My journey continues in the middle of the heart Val’sharah. This is the sanctuary of the druids where the corrupted world tree Shaladrassil, in addition to other known threats from the Burning Legion, spreads surreptitiously ie: The nightmare.
As The Nightmare continues to spread far and wide I find myself fighting Harpies as well as many of the other Nightmare corrupted inhabitants of Val’sharah and even beyond.
As seen below in this quest reward I have come across the first few quest to upgrade my artifact weapon: Scythe of Elune.
I don’t feel as if I’ve done very many quest here in Val’sharah but as I look to be 3/4 of the way to level 102 I acknowledge once again, time can be deceiving .
It’s been my past experience that each zone should be good for approximately two levels each. I expect the leveling to be similar throughout The Broken Isles which is made of five new questing areas: Val’sharah, Highmountain, Stormheim, Suramar, and Azsuna.
Only druids have access to the Dream Grove, accessed after they help Remulos clear the Emerald Dreamway of the taint of the Emerald Nightmare. Once their Order Hall has been established, druids can either teleport to the Dream Grove using Dreamwalk or take the Dreamway. Alternatively, a path along the coast of the Val’sharah coastline runs from the temple of Elune all the way to the Dreamgrove
While this may look like a garden it appears to be more of a gallery of sorts featuring incarnations of the druid artifact weapon.
The Seed of Ages, seen below, is the druids way to upgrade their artifact weapons using artifact points. Besides quest rewards as you kill the corrupted inhabitants around the Broken Isle you may randomly loot items which reward anywhere from 50 to 250 artifact points.
I hadn’t used any of my looted artifact upgrade items up until this point so I had a good few saved, 950 artifact points to be exact. Turning in my quest rewarded the first trait (New Moon) in my Traits Tab from there I was able to spend my points to open more connecting traits.
Seen below I’ve opened Skywraith, Falling Star, and Touch of the Moon. Notice how some traits have the option to upgrade more than once? Level one being 150 points, level 2 being 250 points, and level 3 being 300 points. You can see below I’ve upgraded Touch of the Moon 2/3.
The new Class Halls will be Legion’s replacement to WoD’s Garrisons. Class Halls are for specific classes of both factions to hang out with others players of the same class. They’ll be able to pickup quests from well-known NPCs of their class and progress on their artifact weapons.
I know some of you will be disappointed and others will rejoice BUT currently the ONLY thing I’ve seen in or around the Druid Class Hall that even slightly resembles the Garrison is that we still have a Mission Table, well in Legion it’s a Mission Map.
Of course just remember that this is Alpha content and everything seen here is subject to possible changes before #Legion is officially released.
