By now the launch day rush has ended and hopefully you’ve all come up for air from Blizzard’s sixth World of Warcraft expansion — Legion. Most of us have had to return to work and thankfully Blizzard knows that the struggle is real when having to balance WoW life and real life. To help you get through your day, Blizzard has graciously released a WoW Legion Companion App to help manage your followers, companion quests, and even keep an eye on what world quests have popped up. It’s incredibly snazzy.
We’re back to collecting companions to send them on (sometimes questionable) missions in Legion. However, this time around we’re limited to 5 (that’s 5). On the Missions tab, players can check available missions, missions in progress, and even assign a Combat Ally. When you tap on a mission it will pop up all the relevant information you’d get in-game: mission name, experience granted, duration, as well as the enemies faced and what abilities need to be countered. You will still be able to see the % chance of completing the mission successfully as well as the % chance of the bonus rewards, if applicable. The cost of the mission out of how many resources you have left are below all that. Followers are listed underneath the quest box area and simply need to be tapped to be added to the line-up and tapped again to be removed. The only thing in the app that is different than in-game is the ability to see how long the missions will stay available to you before they disappear.
One of the new features of companion missions is the ability to recruit disposable minions which all have
The followers screen lets you keep up on your champion helpers. Again, you can only have 5 active but you’ll be able to see the deactivated ones as well. You can deactivate champions, reactivate them, look at their abilities and check on your disposable minions status. This menu isn’t packed with features but it’s still nice to have.
The all important Hall research! Another simple menu, the research tab shows you what talents you have researched already, gives you the progress circle on stuff you’re in the middle of researching, and you can drill into any of the research items to plan your next talent acquisition. Your Order Resource are listed on this menu as well so you know if you’ll have enough to do all of the things you want to do.
All in all, the Legion Companion app is a great addition to the already super handy Armory app and definitely a must have for any current WoW players that want to stay on top of their game. You can download the Legion Companion app for free on the Google Play store or on iTunes. Check out the tutorial video below:
