How to unlock The Netherlight Crucible (World of Warcraft: Legion)

The Netherlight Crucible lets you improve the relics on your Artifact weapon, and can be unlocked by all players with the Legion expansion pack. In order to get the Netherlight Crucible you will need to do the main quest line on Argus. If you're not able to get to Argus, check out this guide.

The quest chain itself should be pretty easy to follow, and starts in Krokuun, goes to Antoran Wastes, and eventually ends in Mac'Aree where you finish it. You need to complete all areas, and cannot skip directly to the Mac'Aree one, so prepare to spend a few hours doing quests. At one point you get the quest An Offering of Shadow, and upon completing this you unlock the Netherlight Crucible.

When patch 7.3 first arrived you had to wait until the beginning of week 3 after the patch to unlock the Netherlight Crucible due to the fact that each set of quests only became avilable one week after the previous one, but all quests are now permanently unlocked on all realms, so there's no need to worry about this anymore.

How to slay non-tribial demons in Argus extremely fast! Rewards Bleakhoof Ruinstrider mount (World of Warcraft: Legion)

Killing any non-trivial demon in Krokuun, Mac'Aree, and the Antoran Wastes in Argus helps you work towards a set of achievements that ultimately requires you to kill a total of 5,000 of these. For killing 2,000 you get awarded with "...And Chew Mana Buns" achievement that gives you a mount called Bleakhoof Ruinstrider. At 5,000 demons you get "And We're All Out of Mana Buns" and the title Demonslayer, so it's worth farming it!

Slaying a total of 5,000 might seem like something that takes a long time, but lucikly it's really easy and fast if you use a certain method. What you need to do is go to Krokuun 60.00, 78.00 (/way Krokuun 60.00, 78.00) and kill the demons there. Stand close to the two green portals there, and kill any demon that comes out from it.

You can easily solo farm 1,000+ per hour, but if you want it even faster open up Premade Groups and look for groups for this. You can do it in a raid group with 40 people, and you don't even need to hit each demon to get the credit! With 40 people at this spot getting 5,000 demons will be very fast, and done in around an hour or so.

Once you're done head over to a mailbox where your brand new mount os waiting for you!

Guide to all dropable mounts on Argus - with pictures and how to look for them as easy as possible! (World of Warcraft: Legion)

Patch 7.3 added a lot of new mounts to the game, and many of these are dropable mounts that are found on Argus. Most of them are tied to the rare spawns that you can loot once per day, so there's no use in farming them multiple times per day. However, you do get loot once per day per character, so feel free to kill them with any alts you might have laying around.

A few more general guidelines for the rares before we get into the different mounts: they do spawn fairly quickly if they are up. Most rare spawns on Argus are up for between 3 and 12 hours before despawning for a certain amount of time, so don't worry if you don't manage to hit it before a group kills it; you will get a new chance in a few minutes. This also means that if a rare is not up within a few minutes, you better not spend your time waiting; instead do something else and check back in 3+ hours. The drop rate seems to be around 2.5 % for each daily kill, and there's a total of 4 dropable mounts, so you will get a new once pretty often if you got a few alts that do the rotation.

Checking for the rare spawns is actually really fast, and should really just take between 5 and 10 minutes for a complete route.

Below you will find a map for each zone, with numbers on them. Check the numbers against the table below to see the name of the rare + what mount it drops. Happy mount farming!

Mac'Aree rares that drop mounts

1: Skreeg the Devourer - Acid Belcher
2: Kaara the Pale - Fel-Spotted Egg
3: Venomtail Skyfin - Lambent Mana Ray
4: Sabuul - Fel-Spotted Egg
5: Wranger Kravos- Maddened Chaosrunner

3 of them are pretty close to each other, but you've got to do some traveling to get to Skreeg. Wrangler Kravos should only be a short ride from the other 3, which are quick to check.

Antoran Wastes rares that drop mounts

1: Blistermaw - Crimson Slavermaw
2: Varga - Fel-Spotted Egg
3: Houndmaster Kerrax - Vile Fiend

All of these are also really close to each other, so checking if they're all up should only take a few minutes.

Krokuun rares that drop mounts

1: Naroua <King of the Forest> - Fel-Spotted Egg

Only one rare mob that drops the egg here, but it could be worth to check if you are doing a world quest or an invasion point close to it.

What's in the Fel-Spotted Egg?

As you can see from the tables above, 4 of the rares drop a Fel-Spotted Egg instead of a mount. This egg has a 5 day timer, so you have to wait for 5 days after looting it before it will open, but once it's hatched you have a chance to get one of the following:

- Scintillating Mana Ray
- Felglow Mana Ray
- Vibrant Mana Ray
- Darkspore Mana Ray

It can also crack into a few pets, or simply thrash. You can get a mount you already own, so getting all four requires a good amount of luck. The drop chance of the eggs are around 25 %, and in contrast to the previous eggs that functioned like these, you can indeed have more than one at a time! So don't stop killing them just because you already have one in your inventory, because there's no limit to how many you can keep at the same time.

Any rare can drop Biletooth Gnasher

In addition to the drops above, any rare spawn can drop a Biletooth Gnasher! This mount is probably the most common of them all, considering most people end up killing a lot of rare spawns each day. However, it looks really cool, so make sure to keep an eye for for any other rare if you want to get this mount.

How to get the Crimson Slavermaw mount (World of Warcraft: Legion)

The Crimson Slavermaw mount is a new dropable mount added to WoW in patch 7.3, and the mount have a chance to drop from the rare mob Blistermaw in Antoran Wastes (in Argus). You can kill this rare mob once per day with each of your characters and still have a chance to get the mount, so the best way to farm it is to kill it with as many alts as possible.

To find Blistermaw, use this TomTom command: /way Antoran wastes 61.7 37.2 Blistermaw

At certain times Blistermaw will be up as a World Quest, and during this time he will spawn very frequently, making it really easy to farm him on all your alts. 

How to get to Argus for the first time (World of Warcraft: Legion)

Argus became playable for all players in the 7.3 patch of WoW, but some players are reporting problems getting to Argus in the first place. Most players will automatically get the quest The Hand of the Fate quest when they log onto a character after the patch, but some do not.

If you are one of the players who do not automatically get the quest, what you need to do is to complete the Broken Shore Intro scenario. This can be done by talking with Archmage Khadgar in Dalaran (alternatively by opening the Adventure Guide and accept it from there), and does not take too long. After this has been completed, you will get the quest required to go to Argus, and you can begin your new Argus adventures!

How to get the Underlight Emerald - an alternative tint for the Underlight Angler (World of Warcraft: Legion)

Patch 7.3 added the item Underlight Emerald which changes the color tint of the Fishing Artifact from the regular blueish ting into a green tint. The fishing pole itself does not really change a lot, but it is a cool little change for the fishing players out there.

In order to get the Underlight Emerald you need to complete the achievement "Fisherfriends of the Isles". This achievement requires you to get Best Friend "reputation" with 6 different Broken Shore fishermen. Each fisherman takes about 3 hours to get from Neutral into Best Friend, so the grind is not too bad compared to some of the other fishing grinds.

Unlocking the Fisherfriends of the Isles achievement

Each Broken Shore zone has one fisherman, and only one of these can spawn each day. Every day a new random fisherman will appear, but you won't ever find two at the same time. The fishermen are as follows:

Impus on the Broken Shore.
Sha'leth in Suramar.
Corbyn in Stormheim.
Ilyssia of the Waters in Azsuna.
Keeper Raynea in Val'sharah.
Akule Riverhorn in Highmountain.

All of these are pretty much like Margoss, and in order to get the item you need to turn in to them you only need to be standing really close to them, so there's no need for a special item like with Margoss. You get a buff when you are close enough, so make sure that the Something's Fishy buff is on your buff bar.

If you haven't heard of Margoss yet, check out this guide to learn how to get him to Best Friend and buy a mount from him!

Once you get into the area and have the buff, you are able to fish up unique fish that you can deliver to the fisherman. Each fish gives you 75 rep, but you can increase this with +rep buffs such as the one from Darkmoon Faire. The fisherman also sell some Toys and pets if you're interested in that stuff.

You unlock the achievement once all six fisherman are at Best Friend reputation, and the Underlight Emerald will be mailed to you instantly! Good luck.
