Heroic Warfronts in Rise of Azshara
In Patch 8.2, Rise of Azshara, a new version of Warfronts in the form of "Heroic Warfronts" will become available alongside its current form. Recently, we got our first look into what exactly Heroic Warfronts are.
What is a Heroic Warfront?
Heroic mode is designed to offer a more challenging version of the Warfront, one that players can easily lose if not working together. You will only be able to queue with a premade raid of 10-20 players and the health and damage of enemies will scale based on how many players you have after 10. The current scaling is designed for players to be around 415 item level. On patch launch, only the Battle for Stromgarde will have a Heroic version.
Normal and Heroic Differences
The Heroic Warfront functions mostly the same as the Normal version, players will undergo the exact same steps normally and win when they defeat the enemy commander. There are a couple additional changes aside from enemies dealing more damage and having more health in Heroic Warfronts.
Health and damage of all enemies increased and scales with the number of players in the Warfront. This is scaled to be appropriate for players of 415 item level. In comparison
, the first major enemy horde players have to fight in their Warfront, has
6.4 million health
in the 20 man Normal version, while in a 16 man Heroic version he has
19.4 million health
The enemy commander will occasionally join the fight, assaulting your bases and commander. As he is very powerful, it will likely require most of your entire raid to repel the assault. Bringing the enemy commander down to 60% will cause them to hearth back to the safety of their base.
Cost of Demolishers and Siege Engines increased to now costs 160 Iron.
You can only queue for Heroic Warfronts while in a raid of 10-20 players. Only the players you queue with will be present in the Warfront.
Winning the Heroic version of the Warfront and completing
will award players with a 425 item of the Honorbound set for Horde or 7th Legion set for Alliance. This is just under the item level of Heroic The Eternal Palace.
There are some achievements tied to Heroic Warfronts:
Future of Warfronts
Common feedback on Warfronts has been that Warfronts are nearly impossible to lose. While only the Battle of Stromgarde is getting a Heroic version in Rise of Azshara, it is likely that at some point this will be added to the Battle for Darkshore and future Warfronts.
While complete speculation, it is possible additional difficulties of Warfronts can be added such as a PvP version. With the Epic Battleground category and PvP Brawl category being expanded, it could be possible for these Warfront battles to be implemented into these PvP categories to keep this content relevant as time goes on.
