WoW Pets: Nethershard Farming!
So it has begun! The pre-launch update has finally hit and folks are scrambling all around to reap the rewards and benefits before they’re up in smoke on Legion’s official launch. Specifically, players are farming Demon Invasions that pop up infrequently throughout Azeroth for the pre-launch content currency called Nethershards.
But if you aren’t caught up in the game yet or are still skeptical about getting back into WoW for Legion after all the dismal hubbub over Warlords of Draenor, you really won’t know what I’m talking about.
Nethershards are the currency for this content cycle and can be acquired from a number of activities available in the update. However, the best and fastest way you can farm for these is to do all the Demon Invasions that pop up. Doing a single invasion nets you about 40-50 nethershards. Doing 4 or 5 invasions will net you roughly around 200-250 nethershards, enabling you to purchase a single piece of WoW gear, WoW armor or even WoW Pets.
With this in mind, it’s important to know where these invasions are most of the time and how to get them the quickest way possible.
