Demon Hunter Tier 19
In the recent alpha build, Tier 19 sets were updated to have additional 3D details. Below is a look at the updated Demon Hunter Tier 19 set with new spikes and armor plates, as well as the matching Tier 19 cape!
Here is a comparison of the new and old Tier 19:
However, for Demon Hunters, that’s not all–they have an alternate Tier 19 version (gloves/bracers still incomplete) with colors for Mythic, PvP Elite, Alliance, Horde, Normal, and Heroic. (Here are icons for the first style and icons for the second style, both with Q in the names where Q = Tier 19.) Which style do you prefer?
Legion Reputation Items
These are some of the possible reputations that will be found in Legion. So far many of these items can be found in treasure boxes around different zones but it seems like they may be changed to Reputation Items. In Legion you can find items that award reputation such as Court of Farondis Insignia. These can be found in treasure boxes around the Broken Isles along with vendor trash, gear, order hall equipment and currency.

Brewmaster Monk Artifact Acquisition
Below is the questline for Brewmaster Monk to acquire Fu Zan, the Wanderer’s Companion, which was added last week to the alpha. More artifact videos can be found on our YouTube Artifact Acquisition Playlist.
It is said that the bearer of the staff cannot be harmed by any weapon.
It is said that the staff was last possessed by the Monkey King, we should begin with asking him about it…
Hit the spoiler button to read the quest dialogue.
In The Wanderer’s Companion You are asked to speak with Tak-Tak so that he can fly you to the Tian Monastery to meet and speak with the Monkey King.
Upon meeting with the Monkey King, he speaks to you in riddles and tells you, that if you seek the weapon, you better answer the riddle. You need to find the objects which he describes in his riddles and then return to him.
In The Riddle of the Barrel you figure out that you need to locate some brew.
In The Riddle of the Land you figure out that you need to locate roasted grains.
In The Riddle of Purity you figure out that you need to find some water.
You fly around Pandaria to locate these items but as you do you spot some familiar foes. The Legion has sent some of its forces to thwart your efforts and possibly take the fabled staff for their own.
Once you’ve found all the things that the Monkey King required of you, you meet back up with him and he then asks you in to meet him at the Temple of the Jade Serpent before those ingredients go stale for one more test.
In The Monkey King’s Challenge the Monkey King asks you to take the ingredients that you gathered and make for him a find brew, only then will he point you towards the location of the staff.
After you mix up a fine brew, fit for a Monkey King, he asks you to step into the Temple of the Jade Serpent.
Master Windstrong says: Help masters! Demons are ransacking the temple!
The Jade Serpents fighting the invaders while we’re holding the gate for survivors to escape. We’re still missing several scribes though and I fear the worst. Please, help us!
The Monkey King says: Ook! This no good! Jade Serpent strong as a mountain and nimble as a bee, but even a mountain be worn down by the waves of the sea.
We must be fast to complete each task. These walls are easy to climb, the Jade Serpent is who I’ll go find.
Master Windstrong says: Sillan, we’re counting on you to rescue our scribes!
Fight your way through the temple and defeat the demons that have invaded! You saved a couple of Scribes including Priestess Summerpetal when the Monkey King yells for you to hurry.
Ooo, that no look good! Come on Wikket’ we no have time to play with these greenies! Follow me!
Priestess Summerpetal says: I’m coming too!
Yu’lon says: You should not be here, little ones. The Burning Legion’s attacks are relentless and even I have suffered many wounds.
The Monkey King says: Jade Serpent taught me when time come for action, king do what king gotta. We not gonna’ leave you alone while greenies be around to get gooked.
Yu’lon says: Thank you, little ones. I can heal my injuries, but I need time for my magic to take hold. Our foes are cunning, they will use this opportunity to strike.
Protect me while I recover from my injuries. Should we fall, all of Pandaria will follow.
Protect Yu’lon so that she can heal herself! Defeat the demon waves as they come.
Lord Korithis yells: Your mortal allies will not help you, little snake! Your doom is at hand!
Yu’lon says: Hero’s , your fight is with Korithis. I’ll protect you from his winged monstrosity.
Lord Korithis yells: Haha! So be it! Come mortals, your death awaits!
Lord Korithis says: This changes nothing… your world… will… burn!
Yu’lon says: You have learned well how to fight these creatures, but this will only be one of many battles.
Yu’lon says: This is Fu Zan, take it. May it shield you in the times ahead.
You take Fu Zan, the Wanderer’s Companion for yourself.
The staffs blessing doesn’t come free, in you it will seek a heroic destiny.
Yu’lon says: Fu Zan has chosen a new companion for its journey. Great deeds and great trials await you, little one. For now you should return home to rest and prepare for the days ahead.
