    The multiple timers are related to their sharding tech used for Legion that dynamically adds new instances to the open world to deal with latency.

    You'll get timers for all the shards in your area, I believe.

    I looked around and couldn't find one...I guess there's no general AH in new Dalaran?

    Plenty of portals to places that do have AHs though.

    There was a blue post that they're considering adding the engineering AH to this version of Dalaran.

    True, so many portals now.

    that, and all you can really do before 110 is get the class hall campaign missions done (and maybe not even all of those, probably depends on what champs you start with.) All I've really done with my alts so far is get to their class hall and get their rested exp cooking.

    Well, if your playing slowly at least. I hit 110 on the second day, and im running into all kinds of time sinks during the campaign questline (class hall). For instance, early on I had to do 5 8-12 hour mission quests, by the time i finished those, i was 110, and moved on with the questline, then hit another 5 missions that so far are 24 hours each. I really regret not taking the shorter mission tier talent.

    Ended up buying Legion last night and boosting my first Horde character ever (Tauren Druid) to 100. Those Legion opening cinematics don't fuck around, do they? Though I will say I'm more than a little lost given I only have a passing familiarity with the big horde characters apparently.

    Two completely unrelated questions -

    1. Did they break/remove titles on purpose? I can't see mine or anyone else's above their heads, and I don't see an option anywhere for turning them on or off. I liked titles :?
    2. Does anyone have a good actionbar mod recommendation for something where you can set bars to be stance-specific? The default actionbars are woefully inadequate for druids.

    Lots of features were moved into the options > interface settings. but then again, the best ones are going to come from add-ons.

    I was going to do Stormheim second, but all of my profession quests were telling me to go to Aszuna.

    So far it's like a grown up version of Vanilla Ashzara with the NElf Ruins, NElf ghosts, Naga and Blue Dragons

    And I've been coming across mobs that have a ! on their nameplate, but they aren't part of the quests I'm on (there's a few outside of Black Rook Hold, for example). Are those for World Quests?

    the ! mobs usually turn out to be quests you dont have yet, or if you kill them sometimes they drop a quest item.

    Well, I did it. I hit 110 on my Warrior. If anyone needs a tank for some fungeons at some point, or even a DPS. Just give me a shout out on the Discord. Now it's time to clean up some quests and get some rep.

    That seems kind of bad design...kill a mob and get a quest item...or kill it again later when it "counts". And you don't know which until after the fact.

    And I "finished" Val'sharah. So they aren't necessary for that at least.

    I made around 2k gold on my druid last night just circling azsuna for herb/mining stuff and then selling it all. I think I'll be doing a lot of that. Priest is 106 should really get them to 110 first I guess.

    Also really want that fishing artifact!

    Titles are working for me. Do you not see player names at all, or just their titles? If you don't see anything, go to interface --> Names and be sure the box for "Friendly Players" is checked. Otherwise I don't know what's going on there for you.

    It used to list the different shutdown timers for the world server and the instance servers, which were usually about 5 minutes apart. With the the new sharding tech, it kinda just says "Server" instead.

    A lot of them actually are for world quests. Only sometimes are they quest item drops, usually the fact that they're big and scary means that they're world quest monsters. I got caught out a lot on beta by spending a lot of time killing them and getting nothing, it's a little annoying.

    I don't see player titles (e.g. "the Patient") above my or anyone else's heads, just player names and guild names. I can see my title in the character pane, but that's it.

    How useful is fishing in this expansion? Like I'm heavily considering just running around and hitting schools of fish for the weekend if the fish is sufficiently needed. It went from "absolutely vital because feasts" in MoP, to "meh" in WoD.

  • SniperGuySniperGuy SniperGuyGaming Registered User regular
    Seems to be needed for an early engineer quest. And there's a whole fishing artifact so I'm hopeful.

    I just have to say...wtf happened to the economy in the last year or so of the game. I stopped playing about 6 months after WoD released and started again w/ legion, last night I sold 65 Leystone Ore for 12k gold. It is really hard for me to keep motivation for playing and leveling rather than just hanging out in the cave w/ the worms in Azsuna where you can mine the mobs for ore after they die.

    WoD garrisons free ore and herbs got a lot of folks to switch to double crafting. Distinct lack of gatherers + new expansion (no stockpiles of materials) + no garrison freebies = inflated prices.

    No, I meant 12k. I couldn't believe it either...I saw tons of fairly high prices for individual pieces on the AH (70-80g) so I figured maybe someone would be lazy/rich enough, but was still shocked when it sold.

    Welcome to the economy of the first week of a new expansion. I suggest you also check prices on the new Tomes.


    I know a guy who did nothing but fish the first week of MoP. You can guess how that ended up for him.


    It's not uncommon to see 12k as an actual number for just selling ore. Most people are focused on leveling, and so the ones who care about getting their professions up (and don't have a gatherer) are willing to spend the gold to "just get there."

    Irony: The thing that most people stockpile for a new expansion is Gold. It is also the one thing guaranteed to have diminished value as the game progresses.


    This expansion will be very interesting for professions. A significant amount of people were able to set their crafting alts up at L100 thanks to Invasions. What isn't clear (at least to me) is how much of Legion those same alts have to progress through before they can be set up to happily craft away again. If it doesn't require 110 for anything considered vital, then more crafting alts can be useful, faster.

    The two areas where crafting alts tend to find the most value is any "natural" bottlenecks (i.e. others need X item for a quest [best example is the capacitors from that quest in Borean Tundra]), or anything considered consumable (best example this expansion is all the bracers). Consumables are the main reasons that Alchemists, Enchanters, and Jewelcrafters were so valuable in the past. I purposefully didn't do much profession research going into this expansion, so I don't know if those traditional professions are still marginalized like they were in WoD, or if people actually care about them again.

    Inscription has always had glyphs in their various forms. The profession is also unique because early in an expansion DMF cards and trinkets can demand high prices (generally, the first raid tier and sometimes the second tier as well). However, those same trinkets fall off a cliff value-wise as soon as better or comparable trinkets become available. Inscription also has Tomes this expansion, which are consumables that EVERYONE needs and should sell at reasonable prices throughout the expansion, simply because demand will stay high. (Fun fact: I was selling Tomes from my mammoth vendor on the AH through most of MoP; and would get anywhere from a few gold to 15-20g per tome)

    Guildie ran into an issue with the Druid class hall quests, any ideas?
    Did all of the level 101 stuff, finished Val'Sharah, dinged 103, there's no quest in either Dalaran or their class hall, so they can't advance the class campaign/get the second set of followers/get the level 2 troops.
    My thought was that maybe there's a dumb breadcrumb that you can get at level 101 but leads to a level 103 thing, but no idea where since I'm not a druid

    I may have that as well the only troops I have at 103 are the treants and there are no quests in dalaran or the grove other than the one to grab the rest of the artifact weapons.

    Sonofabitch okay thats the problem. The guy who gives the next quest is the same guy who gives the artifact stuff. So he always has the orange ! unless you have gotten all the four artifacts. So I guess your friend and I both need to go check that goober tonight.

    I just got one to go help Broll Bearmantle. Only 2 followers + Treants. And I haven't run my 2nd Artifact quest yet. I'm like two-thirds or so through 103, I think.

  • kaidkaid Registered User regular
    Apparently check with the guy who grants the quests for artifacts at 103 he also apparently offers the next order hall campaign quest and due to always having the orange ! easy to miss it I was just ignoring him because I did not want to bother with the other two artifact intros yet.

    This is the one you want, should lead to 2 more followers, new set of troops, and then follow on quests at that involve needing to do some follower missions to progress.

    Prices will go down as market saturation increases, and also as people get the shoulder enchants that give you mats.

    Thats a bit high, but not completely crazy. You have tons of people that have been making crazy money from missions for 8 months and nothing to spend it on. I'm seeing herbs for about 500g per 20 (and these are the most common ones).

    So I decided I was going to try leveling ret because holy doesn't get an interrupt and ashbringer is cool looking, and I honestly felt it was weaker than holy. Could be because I've leveled the silver hand more than ashbringer (though I level they aren't that far off) but I switched back to holy. Also I get to feel more unique since most pallys I see are ashbringer or tanks, but rarely are they swinging real steel.

    Also so glad I decided to do stormheim first got to a part this morning that was awesome as hell.

    You get sent to valkyr hell and run across an ursula looking god and have to make a deal to get out, it was awesome.

    I would like some money because these are artisanal nuggets of wisdom philistine.

    I don't know why they haven't converted the gathering professions to secondaries yet. Warlords and now Legion make it clear that they realize most people want to do double crafting if they can.
