Before the grand invasion of the Legion, World of Warcraft is getting some pre-expansion patches and content to prepare for August 30th.
Around the second or third week of August, after you’ve adjusted to the patch and it’s changes, they skies will rain demons. You’ll find where the invasions are on your world map, so rush there to provide your help against the invasion!
Each demon invasion has four stages, and each of them ends with a reward of Nethershards—and sometimes even a chest. Fighting hordes of demons and getting loot for it, what’s better than that?
The Legion’s assault will begin to intensify as time goes on. After a week or two, the invasion will ramp up tremendously, increasing your chances to complete the achievements only available from this event, Stand Against The Legion (for completing one invasion) and Defender of Azeroth: Legion Invasions (for completing invasions in all six locations).
Be sure to collect all the Nethershards, as you can spend them. on all sorts of transmogrification armor ( cloth, leather, mail, and plate), new pieces for your neck, fingers, back, and so on. You’ll also want to loot the stage 2 and stage 4 bosses in the demon invasions, as they can drop one of 16 event-only weapons, such as Fel Barbed Spear or Hellfury Longbow.
Prepare yourself and go protect Azeroth!
