Our next trio of Order Halls includes the righteous paladins, the holy priests (unless you're of the shadowy persuasion), and the always dubious rogues. Each has a small surprise in store for their respective classes, all oddly enough involving people we thought were dead.
Kick back, relax, and sip some Noggenfogger Elixir while you read!
Ever since the fight with the Lich King that liberated the Knights of the Ebon Blade, people have wondered what lies beneath Light's Hope Chapel in the Eastern Plaguelands. Now, paladins get to make the chambers beneath their order hall - and as far as most of the halls go, this one appears to be the most fleshed out in regards to both NPCs and architecture. Perhaps the grandest portion of all is the Hall o…

World of Warcraft: Legion alpha is once again back in full swing! We hope everyone had a great Christmas and wonderful New Year while it (and we) went on a bit of hiatus.
When last we met, we delved into death knight, demon hunter, and druid order halls. This time around we've moved down the list to our next three classes: hunters, magi, and monks. Their Order Halls are fairly unique though, as always, everything is still under construction. Let's just hope the hunters don't have to sink through the floor of their main lodge in the future.
Hunters, the stalwart trackers and lovers of nature, have their very own perch way up in Highmountain, fittingly called Trueshot Lodge. This snowy area is dotted with giant pine trees and tall wooden towers…

Order Halls (or class halls) in case you weren't aware, are where the heroes from both factions set up a base of operations for their class in order to fight the Burning Legion - you know, because the Alliance and Horde have, of course, put aside their differ... oh, never mind.
Here players can perform a multitude of tasks, including augmenting their artifact weapon and interacting with heroes from all over the world. They can discover new quests to embark upon based on what their followers report, or even voyage to new areas as-yet undiscovered.
Today we showcase the first three we've had the opportunity to delve into. Most classes establish their Order Hall upon the culmination of, or in the middle of, acquiring their artifact weapon.

The Vault of the Wardens is the prison where the Wardens hold their most powerful prisoners. Illidan Stormrage is held here, along with a myriad assortment of demons both fel and powerful. The Illidari, due to their very nature, are held within their own wing, but an assault by the Burning Legion throws the Wardens into chaos, and none other than Maiev Shadowsong is forced to turn to those she despises the most to drive the demons away. Demon hunters awaken here after having secured the Sargerite Keystone in Mardum; it was to be a victorious return to the Black Temple, but the Wardens captured them, and now they have been slumbering for a decade...
For a complete look at all the quests within the Vault of the Wardens, please see this list. W…

Mardum is the Burning Legion world the Illidari invade in their bid to capture the Sargerite Keystone, the key that will allow them to infiltrate other Legion worlds. The demon hunter forces are small, but they manage to power several demonic gateways to bring in notable allies to aid in the effort: the Ashtongue Deathsworn, Coilskar naga, and the shivarra. The fighting is intense, but the combined might of the Illidari manages to push through to the floating Fel Hammer to defeat Brood Queen Tyranna and snatch the keystone. Triumphant, they step through the portal to the Black Temple, ready to continue on the next part of their quest against the Legion at Illidan's side... of course, that's a story for another day.
For a complete look at all…

It's probably no secret by now that the great city of Dalaran moves to the Broken Isles in World of Warcraft: Legion, hovering right above the Broken Shore. We took some time today to scamper around the in-progress city, grabbing screenshots of pretty much every place there was - and boy, is there a lot! There were a few things that caught our eye:
- The center of the city is now taken up by Aegwynn's Tower. This structure is largely incomplete, with only grey, unfinished surfaces. Inside, though, is a portal that leads to the Portrait Room, the lower level of which houses portals to some notable areas: Caverns of Time, Shattrath, Wyrmrest Temple, Dalaran Crater, and Karazhan. From what we know of some of the artifact weapon quest lines, these…
