How to Upgrade Your Legendary

I didn't know this until today but when Nighthold launched there was a new quest added which allowed you to grind for essences in Nighthold to upgrade your iLevel 910 legendary to iLevel 940.

I didn't even realise legendaries had gone up to 940, but my rogue Pedigreechum already had Shivarran Symmetry at level 940 and Marcusmaximi's two legendaries are both 940.

I guess that's because I'm so slow at levelling.

If you  do have an iLevel 910 legendary you can go to the blacksmiths in Dullaran and get the quest Touch of a Titan which send you  to Nighthold to collect 50 Aman'Thul Essences - enjoy that grind!

Now I've heard that you'll soon be able to upgrade them further, although I can't currently find any evidence to back that up

Flying Finally

So whilst at work I completed the champion missions that awarded Legionfall rep so as soon as I logged in when I got home I clicked the rep icon in my bags and I was welcomed with the Part 2 achievement - YAY!!!

I was also congratulated in /g which is amazing as no-one has been online in weeks! It turns out that they'd all disappeared off to another guild to raid and it had all fallen apart - LOL!

Anyway, now that I had finished the Legion Flying grind I suddenly felt at a loss for what to do, I couldn't even be bothered to do the daily world quests on MM as I only had a 2 day expiry on them!!

I nearly walked away, but decided to knock them out anyway and have a little fly around Broken Shore.



I cleared all 4 of the level 110's world quests.

The Kirin Tor Magic of Flight and Like the Wind world quests are especially easy with flying. With the Magic of Flight just make sure to enter the first bubble to activate the end point and with the Like the Wind quests make sure to go through the jump portals but not the cool down reset portal.

So Near And Yet So Far - Legion Flying

I started tonight with about 1500 Legionfall reputation required to get Legion Flying and after all the  broken shore dailies and scouring the Champion Mission I was on 11,548/12000.


I then went and spent all my supplies on mage tower construction a few times and I was at around 11,950.

So, so close. What else was there to do? I went searching for treasure chests and killing elites, this was slow work and I gave up on 11,966 out of 12,000 and it really was bedtime.

I quickly popped to the refresh my champion missions and they were all either for Legionfall rep or war supplies!!!!!

Well, at least I knowv that when I wake up in the morning I'll have Legion Flying!

Light as a Feather Kills You

So it looks like the great buff in Broken Shore, that allows you to water walk when mounted will actually kill you if you jump off a cliff into water whilst mounted ... thanks!

How to Get Your Champions Past level 850

Well, there I was sitting on loads of Heavy Armor Set, Fortified Armor Set and Indestructible Armor sets as patch 7.2 hit expecting the 850 cap to be removed allowing your champions to be raised higher or for the number of champions you can have active to be increased so I'd need them to raise the new champions to 850.

It turned out that the cap remained on the armor sets so I stopped doing missions to get more. Then last night I got my new Legion Champion, Delas Moonfang (or something like that) and he started off at 850, so it was pointless even keeping the armor sets ... great.

And now I am getting new champion quests with an ilevel requirement of 900 - WTF??

I am still collecting armor sets on PedigreeChum though as he hasn't got all his champions yet and I was looking at the companion app today to check his champion's levels and there were more than just the uncommon, rare and epic sets. There were two sets of each!!!

It turns out there are Bulky, Spiked and Invincible armor sets now! I even had an inkling that there were different sets a few days ago as the names didn't ring true when Pedigree looted them, but I didn't check at the time - I wish I had!

These new armor sets don't have an upper limit, so I wonder if they can take your champions ever higher?

Pillars of Creation Required For Patch 7.2 Quests

Now that I only have the legionfall rep grind to complete to get legion flying its time to look into what else I need to complete or Legion.

As memory serves, I looked into my achievements a couple of days ago and I only had 4/5 of the pillars done.

Yet when I just spoke to Khadgar on the Broken Shore he referred to me as the champion who sorted out all the pillars - #wtfdumbdude!!!

More Legion Flying Progress

I left it yesterday with Marcus sat in Suramar having shut down a couple of outlets.

Today I logged on and shut the other outlets and then killed some Chromatic Defenders for the plating.

After that I shot though the other quests and completed A Change of Seasons before continuing on with the quests. I assume these are patch 7.2 continuation quests rather than original quests ???

Then I went to find Lyana Darksorrow to do the last quest storyline in Felsoul Hold. I couldn't find her where she was supposed to be, so I checked which quests I had completed utilising the old quest check macro ...

/script print(IsQuestFlaggedComplete(xxxxx))

... and it turned out I just need to kill Azoran, so off I went to do that and I had Breaking The Lightbreaker completed as well as the Good Suramaritan, Loremaster of Legion and Broken Isles Pathfinder, Part One achievements!!!!!!!!!!

On a roll, I went over to the broken Isles and knocked out the discovery element as well,l leaving only the rep grind to so :)

Legion Flying Progress

So, Having got to work 4 hours late yesterday so that I could complete the Val'sharah Legion Invasion and therefore the Defender of the Broken Isles achievement it turns out you don't need it anymore - grrr!!

I have updated my guide accordingly.

So anyway, all I have left to do is complete the Suramar storylines, discover all the Broken Isles and raise legionfall reputation to revered.

The rep grind will progress as I play I guess and the discovery is just a travel grind so I am concentrating on getting Suramar finished.

I was at the Emerald dream raid part and the quest has been in my quest log for some time so this morning I decided to get that out of the way.

So, I popped into raid finder and did all three sections of the raid, just to be sure. It turns out I've done the first part, but needed to do the other two anyway.

Bonus here was 2.1 Artifact Power Tear as one of the quest rewards!!!

So, next up is to complete all the leyline feeds. I had 4 still to get so, first off to Faranar, then the cave by the river just to the north, then the cave south of Moonguard and finally off to the Crimson Thicket for Kel'balor, finishing off the last half of Tidying Tel'anor along the way.

With the leylines all activated it was time to head off to seal the arcway outlets and get some plating...

Where is Commander Jarod Shadowsong's Twin

When you do the Val'sharah legion event and head off to Black Rook Hold to hand the first part into Jarod I headed to where he usually is, in the little cave underneath.

He was there, but unresponsive. Then I noticed the yellow dot on the map was somewhere else.

Seems Jarod can be in two places at once!!

Prince Farondis Legion Azshuna Invasion Bug Fix

Tonight I did the Azshuna Invasion on 4 of my 110 characters and none of them got the follow up quest from Prince Farondis when handing in the 4 world quests.

After a disabling addons and doing all kinds of other 'usual' fixes I did a little browsing of the battle net forums and I found a fix.

Simply head down to Shackles Den flight path and then walk/ride a little south down the path. maybe 50-100 yards for those without addons, to 55.97 60.48 and he will magically appear.

Gogo Blizztards and your inability to respond to bug posts in the official forums for over a week!!!!
