Legion Assassination Rogue Spell Animations and Artifact Preview, Warcraft Movie Commercial Updates
Today we're previewing another recently-unveiled spec on the Legion Alpha, Assassination Rogues. We've got videos and information about their new spell visuals, artifact acquisition involving Garona, and artifact weapon models. There's also been some tweets that we can expect a new
commercial in March!
Zarhym announced late last night on Twitter that he is no longer with Blizzard--there is no official goodbye post, but we have
set up a thread
where you can reminisce.
Several days ago,
director Duncan Jones teased that a new commercial would be coming soon, and followed it up yesterday with another tweet that it's planned for March. The first commercial went live on
during the AFC and NFC championship games. Earlier this week, Funko
announced a new line of Warcraft toys
Assassination Rogue Spell Amimations
Assassination Rogues are one of the two new specs open for testing on the Legion Alpha this week. This is our ninth Legion spell animation video; we have a
if you want to catch up on the other specs.
Assassination Rogues have received more visual updates than Frost Mages in Legion so far. For abilities with visual updates, we have compared them to live servers. We've also repeated several cool animations in slo-mo and shown animations with and without the artifact weapon equipped, as some gain additional effects. Below are some of the animations in the video -
Assassination Rogue Artifact Acquisition

The Kingslayers were Garona's daggers as Gul'dan's personal assassin. They inflict a traceless poison, leaving little evidence of their grim work.
Garona stowed the blades away long ago in her anguish, but she has taken them up once more against a dangerous Legion cult.
We have to find her.
Hit the spoiler button to read the quest dialogue.
Tess Graymane asks that you must find Garona, she was on a mission to assassinate a few leaders of a Legion cult and they haven't heard from her since. You must find her by taking up her work and then following up by seeing if it will lead you to her. She has also taken the Kingslayer blades and they seem to bring out the worst in her.
Tess Greymane: I'm afraid you're on your own out there until you can find Garona. I'd be recognized in a heartbeat that close to Alliance territory.
You then venture to the Blasted Lands and find Caden Shadowgaze at the Alter of Storms, and begin to sneak up to assassinate him.
Caden says: Stand down, rogue scum. You know not the forces you tempt!
They gave me their lives willingly to the cause. Won't you?
It is not to late for you. Submit, and take your place in the new world order!
You are too late. We are... everywhere...
You find a coded message on the corpse of Caden, it may lead you to where Garona was heading. You then begin to make your way to Duswood to find the next leader on the list, Felcaller Whitley. When you find the place that Whitley, you can hear him from inside, you approach him stealthy.
Whitley says: Yes, yes! They grow closer with each moment!
You will not interrupt my work. The Legion will have this world!
Our new masters can make us more than mere mortals, don't you see?
Usurper. Thief. Scoundrel! You will not deny our glorious destiny!
On Whitley's corpse you then find a Fel Cipher and use it to decode the message that you had previously found on Caden's body. Signed by "The Herald" it states that their time for glorious ascension. To make haste to Darkshire. He also says that someone by the name of Sister Ebonlocke has gathered the Skull and Blood of the innocents and awaits. You then begin to make your way to Darkshire.
You can sneak around and collect the items listed on the letter, you also find the person noted. Althea Ebonlocke, and engage her.
Althea Ebonlocke says: All goes as planned. Once brother Shadowgaze arrives we leave for Stormwind!
We will not be stopped!
The Herald has promised us freedom and respect - we will not be denied!
You will not interfere. The Legion will rise!
Althea escapes, but you know where the next location is. You wonder why you haven't run into Garona yet. Where could she be? You then make your way to Stormwind. As you arrive you are feel a presence you are familiar with and do meet up with Garona.
you are to help Garona take out the Veiled Hand cultists in Stormwind, she does not trust the SI:7 rogues or Shaw, and Stormwind cannot fall to the Legion.
As you make your way to the gates of Stormwind you see someone standing in front of them.
Garona says: Great. It's Shaw.
Shaw says: Show yourselves. I don't have time for games.
Garona says: Step aside, Shaw. All of Stormwind will burn unless we finish our work.
Shaw says: We're aware of the Hand's activities. The city is locked down while WE handle the situation.
No one enters these gates until this is resolved - especially the two of you.
Stay out of this, half-breed.
Garona says: We need to keep the guard busy so they don't interfere.
Find agent Elling Trias in the Trader's Hall and meet me at the Pig and Whistle Tavern in Old Town. Some of the cultists have gathered there.
Sneak around Stormwind and do not get spotted. You make your way around guards and finally find Elling.
Elling says: Wasn't easy to get this on such short notice with the city locked down, you know.
Once you use the bomb you'd better high-tail it out of there. Hammond and his boys are going to descend upon that hall like moths to a flame.
Pickpocket the locked box and then loot the bomb, continue to sneak passed the guards and make your way to the Trader's Hall. Once in, sneak in and smoke bomb the area, cause the commotion and then sneak out to go meet back with Garona in Pig and Whistle Tavern in Old town. Once there Garona tells you that the cultists have locked themselves inside the Tavern. Luckily you know how to pick locks. You make your way in and begin to dispose of the cultists and you hear Althea shouting at you.
Althea says: This is the last time you disturb our work. Kill them!
Fine. Killing you myself will earn me a greater place in the new order anyways.
Garona says: Where is the herald? Speak!
Althea says: Is that the best you can do? You are weak indeed!
You seek to delay the inevitable. The Legion will wash over this world!
What is... happening... my veins... are on fire...!
Please... no more! I'll tell you everything - just make it stop!
He lies... in the keep...
Garona says: The keep will be heavily guarded. We should split up so at least one of us makes it to the Herald alive.
We don't have much time. Get moving.
Continue to make your way and sneak to the keep. However Shaw has called for reinforcements. You can hear him giving orders to the guards, to secure the gates and to move the king to a secure location. You must make use of all your abilities and get past the guards and find your way to the Herald. Once to the throne room you see cultists runes on the floor and a pathway blocked. Once passed you see him, Melris Malagan.
Melris Malagan says: Foolish orc, you will be the first to witness the Legion's arrival into my city.
Long have I waited for this day. Let us not waste another moment.
Ered'nash ila mornu nakuun. Ered'nash ban man'ari!
Garona is in trouble, you must defeat The Herald, Melris Malagan and stop him from allowing the Legion to enter into Stormwind!
Melris says: You are too late, assassin.
I have seen the beautiful gifts they bring. You do not understand!
They have arrived! Oh, they are even more beautiful than I imagined!
Master, your servent requires aid!
My plans will not be ruined. My destiny will not be denied. You will burn!
Garona says: Good. Our work is done.
Being here with the Kingslayers brings back... dark thoughts. Thoughts I've tried to rid myself of my entire life.
Take them. You've more than proven your skills - maybe you can overcome the darkness within their steel.
You take the blades from Garona and claim The Kingslayers as your own.
