Blizzard just released a World of Warcraft’s pre-launch for The Legion expansion on Tuesday. The Demon Hunter class along the Broken Shore Demon Invasion will be live after Blizzard’s update. The U.S. servers will be back online at 3 PM EST, while the E.U. realms will go down on Wednesday 2 AM EST and it will be available again after two hours.
Before gamers can play the new class, they will need a character 70 or more on your realm, and pre-purchasing The Legion’s Expansion. The Demon Hunter can only be played as Night Elf or Blood Elf races. Gamers can customize its horns, blindfolds, tattoos, skin tone, and hair color, though.
The Demon Hunter class begins its journey at level 98 in a demon infested Mardum. Its primary weapon is the Warglaive, but it is also possible to use, one handed swords, fist weapons, daggers, and axes. The Pre-launch will also feature a new storyline. The quest begins at Mardum before the game’s current timeline, where plenty of adventures await players.
Demon Hunters are demonic elves who uses the magic of the Legion against them
Many major characters like Illidan, Maiev Shadowsong, and Sylvanas are included with amazing voice actings and top-of-the-line graphics.
The Demon Invasions will also be live after the update. The Demons will take over Azshara, Dun Morogh, Hillsbrad Foothills, Northern Barrens, Tanaris, and Westfall. Completing one invasion will award the Stand Against the Legion achievement, and completing all six will grant the Defender of Azeroth: Legion Invasions achievement. A tip for all WoW fans, players from levels 10 to 100 can participate in invasions.
The Pre-launch will also include Class Trails
Legion Class Trials will allow players to try out any class at level 100 before boosting it to 100 permanently. A short tutorial will highlight the most important abilities of each class.
This release is not the full expansion, and it works as the transition between the current version and the DLC. Events available during the pre-launch will only be able before the new expansion goes live.
World of Warcraft’s The Legion will be available on 30th August. Both standard digital and physical version will cost 49.99$ while the Deluxe Edition will cost 69.99$. The Legion will include Reins of the Illidari Felstalker mount, Nibbles pet, One level 100 character boost, Felstalker mount on Heroes of the Storm, Illidan and Gul’dan Fel Protoss portraits for StarCraft II, and Wings of the Betrayer for Diablo III.
A physical collector’s edition will also be available, and it will include a behind-the-scenes Blu-Ray, an art book, a CD soundtrack, and a Legion mouse mat.
