Tomb of Sargeras - First Wing
Information • First Wing (Available) • Loot and Achievements will be available. • Modes: Normal and Heroic (Mythic Mode will be available within a few weeks).

Aegwynn used this sacred temple of Elune to lock away the defeated Sargeras' avatar. She hoped it would remain dormant, buried deep within the earth, but the lure of power has continued to draw foul entities to this site. When Gul'dan reentered the tomb, he tore down Aegwynn's wards and opened a doorway for the Legion to invade. Now the fel army tears at the vault, hoping to reclaim their master's power.

Champions, gather your strength! Take your guild members or friends and challenge the power of the Burning Legion again! You will be able to find the three bosses available within this first wing;

Legion: Upgrading to 7.3.5

Hello,

It's coming to the end of the Public Test Realm (7.3.5), which announces the official release of patch 7.3.5 exclusively on Firestorm on Monday, May 7th, 2018! We have received a lot of feedback from you, and we appreciate you for it! Your feedback helped us expedite the progress on development and corrected the problems you've encountered during the test. You will be given several ways to update your game to the latest version, and we recommend you download the full game before joining the server (Ref: Method #1). If you're reinstalling your game, you may want to back up your addons configurations, macros, etc. refer to the ending spot of the guide. Important Note: There is two addons included in the file archive called "Firestorm" and "GMTickets" they will have to stay permanently activated in order to make requests in-game. These are used for features such as the Recruit-a-Friend and other features in the future, they're required.

Method #1 (You don't have the game installed, you can do either of the options below):

A. Download from the Firestorm Torrent: Download the full torrent game from our website (You will need a torrent client installed i.e; µTorrent, BitTorrent, or Deluge). Once the download is completed (52 GB), move the folder named "World of Warcraft 7.3.5 Full - Firestorm" to the directory where you want to install the game (avoid leaving it in the download folder to avoid any problems). Windows: Extract the client to your game directory and start the game from the "Firestorm.exe" executable. MacOS: You will need to extract the Firestorm_Mac archive to your game directory. Once that is done run the "Firestorm_Mac.app" and you should be able to play. A window will appear asking you to choose the language you wish to play with (the default is your operating system language) then your game will launch normally. Next all you do is login with your Firestorm credentials.   Spoiler

B. Download from Blizzard (Battle.net): Create a Battle.net Account here. Download the Blizzard Launcher and Full Game. Once everything is installed, simply replace the files with the ones provided here or alternatively use the Firestorm Launcher to patch the files. Windows: Extract the client to your game directory and start the game from the "Firestorm.exe" executable. MacOS: You will need to extract the Firestorm_Mac archive to your game directory. Once that is done run the "Firestorm_Mac.app" and you should be able to play.   Spoiler

 

Method #2 (You don't have the game and wish to download it as fast as possible):

If you don't have the game installed, place the files in a new blank folder and run the executable in administrator mode. This will download your game while your playing. The initial game launching will be very slow, and it will take between 15 and 30 minutes before you can play with your character, as the game is downloading the basic files. Remember that you will have lag, longer loading times, and potentially high ping depending on the speed of your internet connection. We do not recommend this method at all. Windows: Extract the client to your game directory and start the game from the "Firestorm.exe" executable. MacOS: You will need to extract the Firestorm_Mac archive to your another folder. Once that is done run the "Firestorm_Mac.app" and you should be able to play.   Spoiler

 

Method #3 (You already have the game with Firestorm Launcher):

Launch and login into the Firestorm Launcher. Click on the Legion, an update to your game will be done automatically. When it's done press the "Play" button and wait a few minutes. The initial game launching will be very slow, and it will take between 15 and 30 minutes before you can play with your character, as the game is downloading the basic files. Remember that you will have lag, longer loading times, and potentially high ping depending on the speed of your internet connection (This is downloading files for 7.3.5 - roughly 6GB). As well you will be prompted to select your language on launch.   Spoiler

 

Method #4 (You already have the game without Firestorm Launcher):

Download the minimal client available here, then extract the files inside the archive to your game existing game directory, and then run the executable. Wait for it to download the files (missing files about 6 GB). Windows: Extract the files to your existing game directory. Once that is completed run the executable Firestorm.exe or "Firestorm-64.exe" to play. MacOS: You will need to extract the Firestorm_Mac archive to existing game directory. Once that is done run the "Firestorm_Mac.app" and you should be able to play.   Spoiler

Addon Configurations and Macros:

Go to your installation of your game (7.1.5), then WTF > Account Copy the folder with your "Account Name" (i.e: test@gmail.com) (right click on the folder > copy). Navigate to your installation of your game (7.3.5) and switch to the folder WTF > "Account"  Paste your copied folder into that folder (Right click > Paste). Start your game and have fun.

Garrosh
Siege of Orgrimmar (Heroic)

After several months of waiting, something promised is finally coming, and here is the biggest raids of Mists of Pandaria. Come face the 14 bosses in Siege of Orgrimmar in Heroic mode! The corrupt warlord Garrosh sank into madness and the thirst for power, so much that he completely denied his owner faction and ideals. It's now up to you to stop him and no matter what faction, he will face you with the same fury and fighting spirit. Do not let him get a hold of Pandaria!

He surrounds himself with the best Lieutenants and ferocious beasts to achieve his ends and become the sole supreme leader of Azeroth. You will have a lot of trouble during this long ordeal, but it's a necessary evil, and do NOT let it go!

Siege of Orgrimmar will be available on February 27th, 2018 at 13:00 (CET). Loot and achievements will be available, except for Skeer and Garrosh as they're in testing mode.

Garrosh has many unwary protectors, who are;

Nighthold

Located in Suramar, the biggest buildings of the Broken Isles await you! Continue an adventure of the third raid in Legion, Nighthold! The raid offers you to face a total of ten bosses, including the final boss who is known as Gul'dan! Its time for you to put an end to this treachery perpetrated by the Nighthold! 

Nighthold will be released on February 14th, 2018 at 18:00 (CET). Loot and achievements will be available as well! (Note: Mythic will be available in a few weeks, depending on the tests performed). Revisit these well-known old bosses of the old world;

http://www.wowhead.com/npc=102263 Deep within the foundations of the Nighthold, beneath the sea, lie long-forgotten vaults that give access to the Nightwell itself. This monstrous armored scorpid has made its home in one of these vaults. Infused with the power of the Nightwell, and surrounded by a teeming brood, Skorpyron presents a serious complication to an otherwise-promising back entry to the Nighthold. http://www.wowhead.com/npc=104415 The cavern at the base of the Nightwell is a maelstrom of raw energy, as the power to fuel an entire civilization courses from the earth. Born from this chaotic flux, the Chronomatic Anomaly is an embodiment of the power of the Eye of Aman'thul. As it lashes out with energy attacks, the bursts of energy warp the very flow of time. http://www.wowhead.com/npc=104288 Trilliax, once proud servant to the nightborne aristocracy, has been discarded and left to slowly deteriorate among other surplus constructs. While an unwavering will to carry out its tasks remains, the passage of time has splintered this construct's personality matrix. It now unpredictably switches from one mode to the next, ranging from doting caretaker to homicidal sterilizer, craving recognition and validation from a master that no longer exists. http://www.wowhead.com/npc=107699 Aluriel always had an affinity for magic. She rose through the ranks of the Nightguard effortlessly, having a natural talent with the sword. But no matter how strong she became, she wanted more. She studied with the mages at the University of Suramar, spending her days in combat training and her evenings in the artificery. She forged her weapons and armor in the Nightwell, weaving magic spells into the precious metals. She is the first Spellblade, adept in the schools of Fire, Frost and Arcane. http://www.wowhead.com/npc=103758 The nightborne astromancer Etraeus has devoted long years of research to scouring the skies of Azeroth, seeking answers to the great mysteries of the universe. His scrying has shown him worlds beyond our ken, and the power of the Nightwell allows him to draw upon the essence of those worlds to amplify his own powers. http://www.wowhead.com/npc=104528 From his youth, the nightborne Tel'arn was fascinated by plant life: the resilience and adaptability of weeds, the ability of simple grass to harness the power of the sun, the way a tree may be divided into two, or two branches grafted into one. Aided by the energies of the Nightwell, he has transformed himself to the point that he is scarely recognizable as a nightborne elf. He now considers himself something far, far greater. http://www.wowhead.com/npc=101002 This colossal doom lord, one of the largest and mightiest creatures in the armies of the Legion, was defeated at the Broken Shore through the combined might of the greatest heroes of the Horde and the Alliance. Having recovered from his wounds, Krosus emerges from the bay between the Nighthold and the Tomb of Sargeras to crush any who would oppose the Legion. http://www.wowhead.com/npc=103685 The dreadlord Tichondrius, once leader of the nathrezim, was once slain by the newly-awakened power of none other than Illidan Stormrage. Reconstituted in the Twisting Nether, Tichondrius returns to watch over Gul'dan on behalf of the Legion, ensuring that the orc warlock does not once again fail his masters. http://www.wowhead.com/npc=110965 Elisande once distinguished herself by resisting the Legion. She and her highborne followers broke away from Queen Azshara and the dark path she was taking, harnessing the power of the Eye of Aman'thul to create the Nightwell to protect Suramar from the Sundering. But over ten thousand years later, the Legion's arrival offered her no such recourse. She has cast her lot with the demons, hoping to once again use the power of the Nightwell - albeit this time in a very different sense - to save her people. http://www.wowhead.com/npc=105503 The chain of events set in motion when Garrosh escaped to Draenor has continued, unbroken for all its twists and turns, leading to this very moment. Thwarted in Draenor, Gul'dan now stands on the precipice of achieving ultimate victory on behalf of his Legion masters. Standing atop the Nighthold, as the vortex of fel energy swirls in the skies overhead, the outcast orc warlock awaits his destiny.

In addition to the release date of Nighthold, the following things have changed;

The maximum item level will increase to level 915 (formerly 895). Legendary items will now be at level 940 when you receive one. Woah, don't yell at us yet, remain calm! If you already have a legendary item, we'll make a quest available to you so you can upgrade yours (http://wowhead.com/quest=45352). Player versus Player (Battlegrounds) and World Quests item level will be increased to 850 (formerly 835). Remember that if you encounter any issues during the raid, please report it to the feedback thread.

Dont miss out! Loot box & Character sales updates

Hello, Our Lootbox item level has been updated on Legion to match the current item level cap, the base reward is now 865 instead 855 and they can reward up to 895. That, of course, will depend on your luck!

We've also listened to the community feedback about the character action house and decided to remove the dynamic minimum price based on the item level, the minimum price is now 300 Firestorm points no matter what gear the character has (across all expansions). About the highlight feature, its used by almost everyone and currently isn't working the way it was supposed to, this feature is meant to make the character being sold stand out from the rest, so we've increased the highlight cut to 45% (previously 30%) and the regular cut is now 30% (previously 25%). The auction house will be wiped so players have to add their character again with the new price they want! Thank you all for your time and all the feedback you keep giving us. And stay tuned for the upcoming releases and updates
