The alpha has transitioned beyond the Demon Hunter starting zone, and we have finally seen footage of the world in Legion. Notably, the Mistweaver quest for the new Class Hall and the acquisition quest for Sheilun! I have collected some information from various sources and pooled it here for your perusal.
Warning! Major spoilers ahead, including Monk Class Hall and Sheilun quest chains. If you want them to remain a complete surprise, stop reading now! You have been warned.
Are you still with me? Okay, good!
Monk Class Hall – The Wandering Isle
We knew that there was a good chance that our Class Hall would be the Wandering Isle after some datamined quests. But now it is confirmed! Hurray!
The quest chain leading up to our hall starts in Peak of Serenity, which is invaded by the Burning Legion. After fighting some of the demons in the Peak, and saving Chen Stormstout no less, the Peak is consequently destroyed and you are teleported to the Wandering Isle. There, you are greeted warmly, and your Zen Pilgrimage is adjusted to teleport you to the Wandering Isle in the future. Pretty neat!
The main hub is of course the centre building, the Temple of the Five Dawns. Some of the adjacent subzones also seem to be accessible, the carrot land for example. Since I don’t have alpha myself, I can only guess from the footage of other alpha players. It is very spacious nonetheless, and new portals are inserted to facilitate travelling. Here are some photos from the Class Hall, taken at night.
Sheilun, Staff of the Mists
The acquisition quest for Sheilun takes us to the Terrace of Endless Spring. We save Taran Zhu and the accompanied Shado-Pan masters, and aid them in the fight against the invasion. The scenario is very cool, and as a player you have to heal the Shado-Pans and even aid them by dpsing in order to defend the hidden staff of the mists. Once the gigantic elemental Aspersius is dead, Shaohao’s legendary staff with which he separated Pandaria from the rest of the world, is in your hands.
I did have a nerdgasm when I saw the scenario, it looks so cool! In fact, most of this expansion looks very neat, especially all the parts that concern Monks, haha. I think I will enjoy myself immensely in Legion. To top it off, here is a video of Sheilun in action:
Until next time, dear readers!
