Blizzard has launched a World of WarCraft Legion Companion App on iOS and Android. The new app does not help players enjoy all of the game on their phones and tablets but it does certain features more accessible for people with schooltime or jobs.
Similar to how World of WarCraft’s previous expansion, Warlords of Draenor, set players as the commanders of a garrison on Draenor, Legion introduced Class Order Halls, where characters with the same class can hang out, level up their class Artifacts and send their champions on missions throughout the Broken Isles.
Warlords had followers and a lot of them. Legion has champions and their numbers, at least for now is considerably smaller. However, players get some expendable troops to go and help out the champions on missions.
Apart from missions and troop management, the class order hall features some lengthy researches which become available as the plot moves forward.
Enter the Legion mobile app. It aims to help out players who cannot check their World of WarCraft account every hour to see how everything is progressing.
The Perks of the Legion Mobile App
The World of WarCraft Legion Companion allows players to check the status on their Class Order Halls. Just like the mission map, the app features a map of the Broken Isles, along with a listing of all the currently available mission, the obstacles each of them features, as well as any already ongoing missions coupled with their finishing time.
What the app does not yet seem to feature (or it just did not for any of us) is an active push notification when a mission actually ends so that users can open the app and reassign their troops and champions to a new one.
Apart from that, starting new missions is very easy once users get the hang of the app. Additionally, we can recruit new troops from the app, which is a quite a big plus. Claiming mission rewards still requires a login. No functionality in regards to the artifact weapons has yet been added.
Instead, on the same world map that users can send their champions on missions, they can also see all active World Quests available for them. This will make it a lot easier to schedule play time during work or school breaks. Before the app, dedicated players had to log in to the game, check their map and then log out.
The Legion Mobile App is free for download but does require an active World of WarCraft subscription, as well as owning the Legion expansion to sign in.
