Optimal Champion setup in Legion (All classes)

Optimal Champion setup in Legion (All classes)

Just like in WoD, missions and champions (followers) in Legion are a big deal and can make you a fortune. At the moment with 13 Characters (12 Alliance one of each class + 1 Horde character). If it sounds a lot, well it’s a long path to get there but leveling alts is easy through Legion invasions. After that you just develop your Class Hall campaign, Legionfall mission and then the Argus missions. Then it’s all about choosing the correct followers and gear them up with the top champion gear. This is what we are going to discuss here. Here is a timeline of what you need to do on a characters to follow this arc:

Level to 110 -> Complete your Class Hall campaign -> Complete Legionfall campaign -> Complete Argus campaign -> Get champions to ilvl 900 -> Get Meatball -> Get champions to ilvl 925 -> Get champions to ilvl 950 -> Complete Felfire Shattering quest -> Gear up your chars with top gear

For every class i will be following this logic – 7 champions, 1 will be a combat ally with Order Resources gear to help you earn resources easier, the other 6 champion will be 2 champions of each of the 3 specs and every threat to be countered by at least 2 champions – Spell, Minions and Hazards. 7th Champion will be Meatball so you have to earn him too. For months now i have been using Meatball as a fighting force and not as a combat ally but that’s causing issues at times and i believe Meatball being a Combat Ally to be the most optimal solution, especially now that in Arugs Meatball is being less effective.

Top 10 Must-Have Addons for WoW

Addons are unique because they are personal and everyone can choose his own UI but we can agree that there are addons that are a MUST for every player. Some might just find them now so here are 10 of the must-have addons in World of Warcraft for any type of player regardless of your main priorities – raider, farmer, pvper.

1. Recount

We couldn’t imagine playing WoW without knowing what our performance is. Whether it’s healing or tanking or dpsing. Recount is the top tool and a must-have addon. It measures DPS, Healing, Damage Taken and it has the ability to produce graphs, scales and pie charts and is able to go into the very detail of your combat performance

4. Bartender/RazerNage – Action bars altering addons

The movement for using the built-in Blizzard UI and bars is strong even in 2017 but you would always want to tweak this and that. If you strictly are a fan of the Blizzard action bars but you still want to move things around, maybe the addon for you is Move Anything

Although NPCScan has been greatly nerfed in the 6.X patches in Draenor due to mechanic of caching monsters, NPCScan is still, to date in Legion, invaluable addon to track down Rares.

Differences between Warcraft movie and Lore

Differences between Warcraft movie and Lore

Let’s go and check what were the differences between the movie and the actual lore.

1. Garona speaking the Common language so quickly

2. Orgrim Doomhammer is presented in the movie as a Frostwolf Clan member but in reality he was from the Blackrock Clan

3. In the movie it is presented as if the Fel magic alone is responsible for the corruption of Medivh, while in reality he was possessed by Sargeras as well which actually was the main reason for the downfall of the Guardian

4. Draka and Durotan’s deaths in the movie were different. Draka and Durotan died together betrayed in an ambush while in the movie Draka died next to the river after saving Thrall and Durotan died in a duel with Gul’dan (which was a lot more epic than sadly dying in an ambush). Also Thrall was found in the snow and not Moses-style in basket floating in the river

Differences between warcraft movie and lore

5. Warchief Blackhand’s death. In the movie Blackhand dies from the hand of Anduin Lothar but in reality he dies by the hand of Orgrim Doomhammer who seized the opportunity to kill the Warchief while Gul’dan had slipped into a comma. And all this after the destruction of Stormwind while in the movie it was before even marching to Stormwind

lothar-vs-blackhand

6. Medivh’s death. In the movie Khadgar stabs Medivh while in reality Lothar finished him off by decapitating his head after being stabbed. Also Medivh sucks the life from Khadgar’s body and turns him older while in the movie this doesn’t happen

differences between warcraft movie and lore

7. Garona’s assassination of King Llane. In the movie King Llane and Garona agreed that Garona will finish off the king so she can be redeemed to the Orcs and continue her mission while in reality she was mind controlled by Gul’dan and assassinated King Llane back in his castle in the worst possible moment for the Alliance

8. There is no indication that sacrifice of life is needed to power on the Dark Portal anywhere in the lore while in the movie it seems to be a requirement. Fel magic in general fel magic does exactly that but nowhere in the lore, draenei lives powered the opening of the Dark portal

9. The Khadgar-Medivh relationship. In the movie, their relationship was quite unexplained and rushed and they didn’t seem to be very close. In reality Medivh trained him for quite some time and they had a quite solid student/teacher relationship

10. Thrall’s green skin. In the movie Thrall is given green skin by Gul’dan saving his life because he is a stillborn. In reality Thrall had been given birth alive and well and already green-skinned by the corrupting energies on Draenor

11. The badass moment with Kargath Bladefist and Grommash Hellscream. In the movie they were shown fighting in the Dark Portal battle but in reality they never took part in the First War and remained on Draenor to keep Ner’zhul in chained

12. Stormwind’s fate. Not sure if this is a difference or they decided not to finish the entirety of the First War in the movie but in reality Stormwind falls shortly after Garona’s assassination of King Llane and this is how the First War ends. It is not shown in the movie. Also the forming of the Alliance takes place in Stormwind in the movie while in reality Lothar and the survivors of the First War are fleeing north and only then they unite the Human Kingdoms into the Alliance of Lordaeron

13. Dalaran floating in the sky. Dalaran was not flown into the skies before the Invasion of the Scourge much further into the future

10 Major WoW Characters Killed by Arthas

10 Major WoW Characters Killed by Arthas

Our favorite character in World of Warcraft. His story is so epic that it deserves a trilogy of movies. The kill count of Prince Arthas Menethil is a long list of victims but the 10 Major ones are:

1. Kel’Thuzad

Kel’Thuzad was a Kirin Tor mage sitting in the Council of Six and later responsible for creating the Cult of the Damned who aided the Lich King Ner’zhul in spreading the plague across Lordaeron. In Warcraft III Arthas was initially investigating the plague and when he found that Kel’Thuzad was sitting behind the evil plan, he killed him. In a plot twist it turns out that Kel’Thuzad will be the most trusted companion of Arthas so he resurrects him as a lich and they pave the road for Arthas to become the new Lich King.

This is Kel’Thuzad as a human

And this is Kel’Thuzad as a Lich in Naxxramas

2. Uther Lightbringer

Uther Lightbringer was the first paladin in the Order of the Silver Hand and was a veteran hero from the Second War with the Orcs. He was the young prince’s mentor and was dramatically killed by Arthas in Warcraft III. Uther’s kill is actually considered the first act of evil by Arthas which plunged him into damnation.

3. King Terenas Menethil II

Terenas Menethil II was the last true king of Lordaeron and the primary founder of the original Alliance of Lordaeron. Ruling for over seven decades, including the period of the Second and Third Wars, Terenas was considered one of the most powerful human monarchs in the three thousand years since the breaking of Arathor. His death at the hands of his own son ended the Menethil dynasty and deprived the Alliance of its leadership at a critical moment in history.

4. Sylvanas Windrunner

Sylvanas was responsible for the defense of Qual’Thalas during Arthas’ invasion on the city in order to claim the Sunwell and resurrect Kel’Thuzad. His vicious undead army was far superior to the high elven defense and soon Sylvanas was cornered and killed by Arthas himself. In an act of revenge he rose her as an undead banshee and she unwillingly helped him in his endeavors. Eventually she was able to break lose from Arthas and together with Varimathras, fled to the abandoned city of Lordaeron where she established the forsaken capital of Undercity and joined the Horde after.

5. King Anasterian Sunstrider

Anasterian Sunstrider was the last high elf king of Quel’Thalas, the father of Kael’Thas Sunstrider and Great-Grandson of the famous Dath’Remar Sunstrider who was the leader of the highborn elves who survived the War of the Ancients. Anasterian was king of Quel’Thalas for 3000 years and played major roles in the lore and the history of the blood elves but Arthas killed him in the invasion of Quel’Thalas plunging the high elven race into despair.

 

6. Antonidas

Antonidas was the leader of the Kirin Tor of Dalaran and teacher to the archmage Jaina Proudmoore. He was killed by Arthas during the invasion of Dalaran. Antonidas was considered the monarch of Kirin Tor and Dalaran by other monarchs although never officially considered as King. This happens in Warcraft III.

Antonidas3

 

7. Mal’Ganis

Mal’Ganis was one of the Nathrezim deadlords sent by Archimonde to head up the plot to turn Prince Arthas to darkness, and make him the Lich King’s greatest champion. Arthas initially believed Mal’Ganis to be the mastermind behind the Scourge and the plague. Arthas was first able to confront the dreadlord during the Culling of Stratholme but this was only a taunting maneuver by Mal’Ganis to lead Arthas to Northrend. Following the campaign in Northrend Arthas caught up to Mal’Ganis and finally cornered him. Mal’Ganis thought that Ner’zhul the Lich King will instruct Arthas not to kill him but to his surprise Arthas slained him without any hesitation. This all enacts in Wacraft III. It is known that dreadlords death is only Azeroth’s manifestation and when a dreadlord is killed he is only returned to the Twisting Nether so Mal’Ganis is presumably alive and well to this day but his days on Azeroth were over. Mal’Ganis showed him self as the disguised leader of the Scarlet Onslaught later in another return to Azeroth.

Malganis

 

8. Sapphiron

Sapphiron was an agent of the blue dragonflight who had guarded a treasure hoard in the mountains of Northrend. After being slain by Arthas Menethil, the dragon was raised as a powerful frost wyrm and sent to the halls of Naxxramas, where he guards the inner sanctum of the citadel’s dread master, Kel’Thuzad

SapphironSapphiron1Sapphiron2

 

9. The Forgotten One

The forgotten ones are massive and powerful tentacle-bearing aberrations living in the deepest reaches of Azjol-Nerub. Forgotten ones are eager to return to the world above.[2] One appeared in a mission in Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne, where it was defeated by Arthas and Anub’arak as they journeyed through the lower reaches of Azjol-Nerub.

The forgotten ones lead the mysterious faceless ones. They can “spawn” armies of tentacles to aid. It is thought that they are servants of the Old Gods.

ForgottenOne

 

10. Dranosh Saurfang

Dranosh Saurfang, often called the Young Saurfang, was a brave Orcish warrior who confronted Arthas, together with Bolvar Fordragon, at the battle of the Wrathgate in Northrend during the World of Warcraft expansion – Wrath of the Lich King. In this epic cinematic Saurfang charges Arthas but was killed with a single hit and then resurrected as one of the bosses in Icecrown Citadel. Bolvar Fordragon also gets killed in this confrontation but not to the hands of Arthas but to the hands of the forsaken betrayers.
