Home > > WoW Legion Pre-expansion Patch is Coming
Many of you WoWer might have notice the “some 20G+ thing” download in the background when you open your Battlenet client. This is surely the prelude of the next World of Warcraft expansion.
In the upcoming pre-expansion patch, you will find a great number of changes and improvements that will lead your way into the game. You are going to experience fighting against Legion vanguards.
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. There are invasions happening on the map and you need to make a quick move to fight them into ashes. Each demon invasion takes place in four stages, and each stage ends with a reward of Nethershards and sometimes a chest.
Participating in demon invasions will earn you Nethershards to purchase all sorts of transmog stuff and event-only items. Also stage 2 and 4 will have a change to drop one of the 16 event-only weapons such as Hellfire Longbow at item level 700.
