Battle for Azeroth Cinematic Trailer
LEGION IS THE SIXTH EXPANSION FOR BLIZZARD’S HUGELY SUCCESSFUL MASSIVELY MULTIPLAYER ONLINE GAME: WORLD OF WARCRAFT, following Warlords of Draenor. It was announced on August 6, 2015 at Gamescom 2015 and was released on August 30, 2016.
The expansion allows players to level up to 110 (raised from 100) in the new area of Azeroth, the Broken Isles. It features artifact weapons for each classes' specializations and introduces the demon hunter hero class that starts at level 98.
The demon hunter is the second "hero class" in World of Warcraft, joining the death knight that was introduced in Wrath of the Lich King. Demon hunters begin as members of the Illidari, the elite guard of Illidan Stormrage during his rule of Outland in The Burning Crusade. Demon hunters operate on the concept of "fighting fire with fire", wielding demonic fel magic to fuel their attacks, and harnessing the powers of demons they kill in order to fight against the Burning Legion.
To become demon hunters, an initiate must consume the heart of a demon that results in most initiates dying due to being overwhelmed by the demonic energy or going insane; the survivors become part demon, taking on demonic aspects including horns, wings, claws and hooves. Demon hunters ritually blind themselves to gain 'spectral sight', allowing them to detect demonic energy from demons and to see stealthed enemies.
Initially there are ten dungeons with patch 7.1 adding the revamped Karazhan dungeon and patch 7.2 will add the Sargeras related dungeon Cathedral of the Eternal Night. There are three raid tiers planned for Legion, with "The Emerald Nightmare" raid that opened three weeks after release, the small raid "Trial of Valor" in patch 7.1, "The Nighthold" raid in patch 7.1.5 and the raid, "Tomb of Sargeras" in patch 7.2. After Emerald Nightmare was opened, Mythic+ dungeons and Legion's first player versus player (PvP) season began.
