Artifact Offhands/Shields in Dressing Room
Many Artifact Weapons come with offhands and shields, ranging from identical weapons like
for dual-wield melee to dagger/offhand combos like
for casters. These weapons automatically update their appearance when you change the style of your Artifact Weapon.
Previously we added modelviewer support for all of the main Artifact Weapons, and have now added all styles to our modelviewer for the paired offhands. Whenever you have a set of Artifact Weapons equipped in the Legion Dressing Room and change the style, the offhand will automatically update to a matching color.
Artifacts with matching off-hand slot weapons:
Frost Death Knight:
Havoc Demon Hunter:
Vengeance Demon Hunter:
Artifacts with distinctive paired weapons:

Disicipline Priest Artifact Acquisition
The Discipline Priest quest for
is one of the longer artifact acquisition quest chains. It involves the Scarlet Crusade, Ethereals, Azuregos, and The Nexus. Full summary of the quest series under the spoiler tag.
The first quest
is one all priests must complete to select their artifact weapon in Tirisfal Glades.
Alonsus Faol, the former leader of Holy Order of Northshire Clerics, is revealed to have been raised as a member of the Scourge and now is taking a more public role in fighting the Legion. While his story is mostly told in the Shadow Priest Artifact, he is the NPC you must speak with to choose any priest artifact weapon.
I apologize for the secrecy, old habits die hard. I am Alonsus Faol. At times I have been the elader of a church, a mindless minion of the Scourge, and a commander ina secret war. But I have always been a priest first.
The Legion is a threat I cannot ignore so I have decided to step out from the shadows. I am working on gathering priesthoods of all denominations to address this threat together.
At its head would be a priest that has proven his or her ability so often they are a hero to all people. I believe you are that hero, but others still need convincing. Will you take on this challenge?
When you select
, the following description is given:
Obsessed with cleansing undead from Azeroth, the fanatical Scarlet Crusade tried to create a second Ashbringer in the form of a staff. However, due to treachery from within, the ritual failed in a fiery explosion. The damaged staff's power proved nearly uncontrollable. Fearing its destructive power, the elite magi of the Kirin Tor hid it away from the hands of men.
, you go to Dalaran to inquire where the Kirin Tor has hidden
. Kalecgos tells you:
So you seek Light's Wrath? A dangerous weapon, to be sure.
Long ago the Kirin Tor entrusted the blue dragonflight to its safekeeping. It was locked away in the only place that could contain its rampant power - the Nexus Vault.
I have not been there in some time, however. After the blue dragonflight was dissolved, the Nexus was abandoned. There is no knowing whether the Nexus vault is still intact - or what may be waiting in the Nexus itself.
you investigate several clues scattered around the Azure Dragonflight in Dragonblight.
This portal is very similar to the ones the Ethereals used in Outland. Could it be them? What did Malygos promise?
This appears to be exploiting the void energy released when malygos forced Azeroth's ley lines into the Twisting Nether. The design looks very familiar...
This weapon has been corrupted with energy from the Twisting Nether. Whomever wielded it must seek to weaponize the void. But for what purpose?
Yet more evidence of ethereal technology! This may be an unfortunate turn. I guess there's only one way to find out who's really behind this.
you activate the communication device, only to hear Nexus-Prince Bilaal:
I thought I had ordered all to return to the Nexus?!
What's this? Another intruder come to claim the artifacts from the Nexus Vault?
You are too late, priest! Even now the power of the artifacts serve to widen the breach within the Twisting Nether.
With this power, the Ethereum will become an unstoppable force. We will become void!
So the Ethereum has taken the Nexus - and yet, that seems the least of our worries.
If they truly seek to widen the breach into the Twisting Nether, then they pose a threat to all of Azeroth. It would seem that fate has set you on this path for a reason. Not only must you recover the artifact, but you must put a stop to the Ethereum as well!
I regret that cannot assist you more directly, but I will guide you as I can.
you investigate Coldarra:
Whatever the ethereals are up to, they are generating an incredible amount of void energy.
Those Surge Needles must be what they're using. Let's take a closer look.
So the Ethereum have altered Malygos' Surge Needles to tap into the void energy caused by the rift.
Their power must also be feeding the shield around the Nexus. Now, let us take a look at the foundation.
The vault must be weakened. I can see the energy from your artifact breaking its way free.
In the following quests
you learn about the power of Light's Wrath - how to empower your weapon and how to unleash the holy energy. At the end Azuregos speaks to you - "The shadow...is lifted? What little mind is this I feel, that can break such a foe?"
Kalecgos explains why Azuregos would be found in the Nexus:
He must have returned to the Nexus to secure the artifacts in the vault. Malygos always trusted him to watch over the magical items in the care of the flight.
you finally go inside the Nexus and begin the scenario part of the artifact questline. The full list of steps for the scenario can be found on
When Azuregos first realizes a player has broken inside, he assumes they simply want to kill him for epic loot:
So the lock on the Nexus is broken, and by a common human no less. Will wondersnever cease?
If you've come to engage in battle in hopes to obtain some spurious trinket, I'm afraid you're too late.
The Ethereum have been quite effective in taking the bite out of this old dragon before I could acquire anything you would deem useful.
If it's looting you desire, as your kind so often do, then I would take the fight to them.
He later realizes that you are here to help and after you rescue him, tries to find a way into the Vault. This is a race against time as Light's Wrath is growing more unstable:
Wait, are you here after them? In that case, I could use a hand here...
The Nexus Vault must be weakening, and that holy fire can only mean LIght's Wrath is no longer fully contained.
It is a powerful, yet quite chaotic artifact. It will lash out at us as we try to approach, be prepared.
The fire seems to have superheated the ground here. I hope you have some way to get us over it.
We're here. Now, let me see if I can find a way into the vault...
It's as I suspected, the main entrance to the vault was broken off when Malygos created the breach into the Twisting Nether during the Nexus Wars.
There must be some other way to reach it if all the powers held inside can still be felt within the Nexus..
A-ha! Thats...wait a minute...the energy from the vault is surging. Brace yourself.
That was too close. If the artiact continues to go unchecked for much longer, it will bring this whole place down around us!
Quickly, we must head to the rift. It's the only way!
When you find the Ethereals, they are trying to use Light's Wrath to turn into pure void. While Azuregos is weakened, you fight the Nexus-Prince while riding on his back.
With the Nexus-Prince dispatched, all that is left is to retrieve Light's Wrath, but first it must be subdued.
Hah! so much the all-powerful void. You know, you're not so bad for a little human.
You should be able to access the vault through the rift here. I can open a portal, but I'll have to remain here to keep it open.
The way open is. Hurry, little human - I can't keep this open for long.
You made it! Now, you'll need to gain control of the artifact if you wish to leave this place with it.
After you fight the weapon, you can finally loot
. Azuregos is impressed and will remain behind to watch over the Nexus:
You must have done something, because the energies from the vault seem to be stabilizing. Now hurry back before this portal closes and locks you in the vault!
I am impressed. Never have I seen a priest capable of controlling LIght's Wrath.
The ethereals have been routed and you have the weapon you came for. Your business is done here, but mine has just begone.
I think you for freeing me. You have given me the greatest gift of all...that of time.
I will use that time to secure the Nexus. It is obvious that we cannot let it fall into the wrong hands again.
The portal will take you back to Kalecgos. Give the old blue my regards, will you?
With the objectives complete, you return to Faol in Dalaran in
