Following Tuesday morning’s maintenance, the Burning Legion’s incursion on Azeroth will get underway—here’s what you can expect:

  • All current level-98 and above characters will receive a quest to go to the Broken Shore, a new Scenario that takes you to the front lines of the Legion's assault.
  • Demon invasions will begin across Azeroth, and all charcters level 10 and higher can participate in the resistance.
  • If you've pre-purchased World of Warcraft: Legion digitally, you can create your Demon Hunter and play through the new class's starting experience in Mardum and the Vault of the Wardens.
  • Once you complete the Demon Hunter starting experience, you'll be sent to your faction's capital city. From there, your Demon Hunter is ready to join your allies and defend Azeroth against the invading Burning Legion.


We have more for you in our Demon Invasions preview, our Demon Hunter guide, and our Legion digital comic series.

We’ll see you at the defense of Azeroth!

Will thier be a lvl 100 demon hunter pvp set or will the gear from the quests be good enough?

Demon Hunters can purchase and use the general leather PvP agility sets from the vendors in Stormshield/Warspear. :)

Good afternoon. I'm wondering if Legion is required for Broken Shore, or just Demon Hunters?

I do know it's not required for the Invasions.

Thank you in advance for anybody who can shed some light on my question.

Edit: One of the Devs answered this question on Twitter:

All pre-patch content (excluding Demon Hunters) is available to everyone. Demon Hunters are only available for those who pre-purchased Legion.

Just to echo this - yep!

Everything except Demon Hunters is accessible without a pre-purchase.

Have they announced a time yet? midnight PST or After Maintenance?

As stated above, after maintenance! :)
