What to do before the legion pre-patch – wowhead news electricity outage san antonio


With the announcement that Legion is coming on August 30th, here is a list of things to get done before the Legion prepatch hits! Before an expansion launches, there is a prepatch where class and UI updates are added, while some other types of content are removed. We do not know when the Legion prepatch is coming, but with the expansion on August 30th, your time is limited to get some content and achievements done.

and the Fabulous title is coming in the prepatch, along with a new Legion transmog system. To work on the Fabulous achievement, you need to collect 25 items for each slot–including new slots which are currently not part of transmog in Warlords of Draenor.

If bag space isn’t an issue, start holding onto items with unique appearances because they will all be added to your transmog UI in Legion. If you’re interested in the Fabulous title, pay special attention to items you may have ignored for transmog, like wrists!

The exciting new transmog system was announced at BlizzCon during the Systems panel; it will include the ability to automatically have all items for which you have completed the quest. Those quest rewards will be in your transmog choices immediately if you have completed a quest. To prepare for this, now is a great time to quest for transmog gear:

The Howl Bomb combination is getting nerfed, which means that you can’t use Howl and then both Whirlpool and Geyser on Pandaren Water Spirit to deal massive burst damage. This pet is a staple of many strategies for all sorts of pet challenges:

• Tiny Terrors in Tanaan: There are 15 elite pets in Tanaan Jungle, most of which can be defeated via Howl Bomb. Defeating each encounter rewards Fel-Touched Pet Supplies which is an easy way to farm Pet Charm and Fel-Touched Battle-Training Stone. There is also a small chance it will contain the following pets: Nightmare Bell, Periwinkle Calf, Seaborne Spore, Zangar Spore.

Pet Charms are also receiving nerfs from Warlords content. In addition to things like Tanaan elites being harder to do without Howl Bomb, the Draenor Tamers will reward 2 Pet Charms instead of 4. Now is a good time to farm up Pet Charms for special items like:

These items will not be going away and the vendors are moving to Legion Dalaran. You can also start stockpiling Pet Charms now as you will need 1000 to purchase the new toy Narcissa’s Mirror in Legion, 50 for River Calf, and 100 for Autumnal Sproutling.

Normally when the next expansion hits, zones from the last expansion are moved to CRZ. If this happens to Draenor zones, finding rare spawns will be more difficult. Currently, many players look at Group Finder to see if someone has put up an alert for a rare spawn:

There are lots of achievements specific to Draenor that require other players to be present. These will be much more difficult to complete once Legion drops and we are all hanging out in the Broken Isles. Ashran may not be as difficult as expected because you can queue up with other players for it as part of a Battleground in Legion.

Legion will include unique Order Halls and lore-filled questlines for each class. To take full advantage of the Legion story, consider getting max-level characters on both the Alliance and Horde sides, as well as a few classes so you can experience the lore more fully.

If you are not sure which classes or specs you are interested in, check out our Artifact Weapon calculator to see all the different weapon themes, as well as our Legion Spell Animations and Legion Questlines playlist to see what fits your character’s fantasy.

These are obtainable by any spec, in random order. You can collect these trinkets on one character for all specs to prepare all your alts as well. Once it drops for one character it is saved in your Heirloom Collection for other characters to use.

There is a quest series to acquire a free set of heirloom upgrades: Ancient Heirloom Armor Casing, Timeworn Heirloom Armor Casing, Ancient Heirloom Scabbard, Timeworn Heirloom Scabbard. The quest chain requires you to loot Misprinted Draenic Coin from mobs while completing your first random Draenor heroic of the day.

The Reins of the Grove Warden is only available for a limited time – the item to start the quest will not drop in Legion, but will be available during the pre-expansion patch. Get a group together for Heroic Archimonde and loot the Remnant of Chaos.

There are only a few months left to make lots of gold through alts with Treasure Hunters, so take advantage of it while you can! You can recruit a Treasure Hunter by building a Level 2 Inn and recruiting weekly followers with that trait. You can further maximize your gold output by constructing a Salvage Yard as missions you complete will reward Big Crate of Salvage which can contain good items for the AH or vendor trash that sells well.

• We would recommend trying to get this achievement done before Legion is released due to it’s central points being around the Garrison and requiring a group. These bosses can reward the following mounts: Giant Coldsnout, Smoky Direwolf, Garn Steelmaw, Shadowhide Pearltusk
