Guide to the Legion Prelaunch Event and Invasions

The Legion Prepatch is coming soon, with demonic invasions, Broken Shore quests, and many rewards for players to complete. This guide will cover all of the prelaunch content to get done!

Table of Contents

Demon Invasions

Demon Invasions will only be accessible for a few weeks, before Legion Hits.

There are six zones you can encounter an invasion in. Invasions will be available in the Legion prepatch and do not require players to have completed Broken Shore questlines. Completing one invasion rewards  Stand Against the Legion and all six rewards  Defender of Azeroth: Legion Invasions. These are Feats of Strength; you only have a few weeks to get these achievements.

Not all invasions will be up at the same time. To see if an invasion is active, go to that particular map and see if the "Under Invasion" text is up, or look on a continent's map.

Invasion Stages

Each invasion is a group scenario with multiple stages:
  • Stage 1: Defend an Invasion Point, like Kharanos in Dun Morogh or the Crossroads in Northern Barrens.
  • Stage 2: Defeat the Demon Commander as well as two lieutenants.
  • Stage 3: Repel the Legion forces around the zone. You can open up your map to see where the enemies are. Progress is granted by killing mobs and saving friendly wounded NPCs.
  • Stage 4: Defeat a boss NPC at the Invasion Point. These bosses are quite challenging, with strong attacks like  Flame Fissure from volcanoes or  Shadow Gale.
You will be fighting with the opposite faction to take down the Demonic Threat, and some faction leaders may also help out, like Trade Prince Gallywix in Azshara, Marin Noggenfogger in Tanaris, and Muradin and Moira in Dun Morogh. You can hop in vehicles like Demolishers in Azshara and Mechatanks in Dun Morogh to help speed up combat. There are also special objects you can throw to deal more damage, like bombs in Dun Morogh.

Several buffs you can earn during the event are  Hero's Resolve and  Inspiration.


Nethershards are earned for different parts of the event:
  • Completing Stage 1 rewards 0 shards
  • Completing Stage 2 rewards 10  Nethershard
  • Completing Stage 3 rewards 10  Nethershard
  • Completing the invasion rewards 20  Nethershard
  • For your first invasion you get an extra 10 shards
You can redeem Nethershards at Illidari camps, which are found in invasion zones as well as Stormwind and Orgrimmar.


Nethershards are used to purchase special items from camps.

In addition, the  Small Legion Chest and  Large Legion Chest can contain specific Fel-Touched pieces, which are ilvl 685.

The Large chest can also drop ilvl 700 weapons with distinctive models. Players can also acquire  Coalesced Fel, which increase the level of a Legion Invasion weapon up to 725.
There are also some BoE ilvl 700 weapons.


Felbat Pup is a special pet that comes from the Legion Invasion.

Demon Invasions

Preview: Demon Invasions

There’s a World of Warcraft: Legion pre-expansion patch coming soon, and that means a great number of changes and improvements will be finding their way into the game. We’ve recently outlined several reasons to get ready for it all here and here.

Today, we’d like to take a closer look at the some of the content that will be coming to Azeroth in the weeks after the pre-expansion patch.

Incursions and Diversions

Around the second or third week of August (no later than August 17 globally), after you’ve had time to play around with the patch and get a feel for the changes, some angry invaders are going to start dropping out of the skies over Azeroth.

You’ll be able to identify where the invasions are currently happening by looking at your world map. As quickly as you can, head out to the zone that’s under attack and lend your aid to the defense of Azeroth.

Each demon invasion takes place in four stages, and each stage ends with a reward of Nethershards—and sometimes a chest. That means it’s always a good time to rush out and fight the Legion.

A week after the invasions begin, the Legion’s assault will begin to intensify. Then, a week after that, the demonic onslaught will intensify even more, increasing your chances to complete the event-only achievements Stand Against The Legion (for completing one invasion) and Defender of Azeroth: Legion Invasions (for completing invasions in all six locations).

Loot Intensifies

When you participate in demon invasions and receive Nethershards, take note of them. Collect enough, and you can spend them on all sorts of transmogrification armor (there will be four ensembles available: cloth, leather, mail, and plate), new pieces for your neck, fingers, back, and trinket slots, as well as the event-only Felbat Pup battle pet, among and other useful items.

Speaking of weapons, you’ll always want to loot the stage 2 and stage 4 bosses in demon invasions, as they have a chance to drop one of 16 event-only weapons, such as Fel Barbed Spear or Hellfury Longbow. At item level 700, these weapons might be more than a transmogrification collection item for you—they might be the perfect thing to pick up and swing at the face of the nearest demon!

Remember to Share

One more item that we’d like to tell you about is a new toy that will be available during the Demon Invasions: the Pocket Fel Spreader. It’s not actually a good idea to leave it in your pocket, but it is a great idea to figure out how to obtain one of these tainted trifles—because this may be your only chance.

For Azeroth!

Gorefiend Overview

by Lukrative, 337 days ago

Summing Things Up↑top

In this section, we will very briefly summarise what the players belonging to each of the three roles have to do during this fight. This is by no means meant to provide sufficient information to master the encounter, and it is only supposed to give you a very rough idea of what to watch out for.


  • Pick up the Enraged Spirits that spawn within the Heart of Corruption. Exit the Heart of Corruption when they leave at 70% health, in order to tank the resultingGorebound Spirit outside.
  • Perform a tank switch on Gorebound Spirits when Fel Flames Icon Fel Flames stacks too high. We do not know exactly how long you should let it stack before switching, yet.
  • Tank Gorefiend.



In Mythic mode, some DPS players will be assigned to DPSing the Corrupted Souls. These adds should die as shortly before their Resisting Icon Resisting cast as possible, to allow players inside the Heart of Corruption to remain there for as long as possible.
