Hello,
Readers.

A3 is back from holiday and looking forward to getting back into the swing of things. We have a final week of the ICC Games, so if you've been procrastinating, make sure you get in. Whether just for fun or you're hoping for a prize, the clock is counting down.

If you hadn't seen last week's brief, make sure you check out Seabreak Isle of the coast of Azsuna. There are tonnes of little Squirky murlocs waiting for a new home.

We're also getting very close to unlocking our class mounts. This also means that, for monks and death knights, their class-specific pets will be unlockable soon. If you haven't been working on those classes, don't worry. You can catch up on the quest line very quickly. Any characters joining the quest line late doesn't have to worry about the time gating of the quest line.

Hope you all have a good week.

Piwakawaka.

Wild Pet Capture Service
Above all else... A3 loves collecting pets! Collection doesn't just stop at pets that can be traded and adopted though - there are a few worlds' worth of wild pets out there waiting for collectors, too! A few of us would like to offer our love of hunting wild pets to A3 members to help them also round out their wild pet needs.

Each week (sometimes a few times each week!) we will comb zones to help members find the wild pets they are still after. We will turn a zone upside-down and inside-out looking for your pet(s) and message you once we've found them. You will then come and capture it! If you would like to take advantage of this service, but aren't available during our typical times, please don't hesitate to contact us and ask about alternative days and times.

Specifications Allowed

✔ Both Factions
✔ All Zones
✔ All Pets
✔ Any Quality
✔ Any Breed
✔ Any Specifics (color, size, etc.)

Pet Suppliers
Do you want to help supply pets for adoption that A3 needs? We have a Pet Suppliers thread where members can sign up to sponsor certain pets they are willing to supply. When the supply of certain pets starts to run low or we have an upcoming project where we’ll need more of a certain pet – we’ll send out a notification about that pet to our suppliers! There is no guess work and no 24/7 farming because we’ll let you know when we’re in need of the pets.

There are no quotas to meet when supplying the pets that you signed up for. You can provide whatever amount you are comfortable with.

New supply options were recently added! New options include common vendor and non-Legion pets.


There are 100's of supply options available, but below you will find the newest options added to the supply request sign-up sheet. These options are especially in need of suppliers right now.

Please note that the sign-up sheet is organized according to which expansion each pet was introduced in, not the expansion "zone" that they are found in.

Raid Preview & Schedule: Tomb of Sargeras
Through dangers untold and hardships unnumbered, the combined forces of the Class Orders have fought their way through the Broken Shore to reach the Tomb of Sargeras. With weapons of great power and the Pillars of Creation at hand, the defenders of Azeroth must face these last foes before the portal is sealed, cutting off the Burning Legion’s access to Azeroth.

  • Minimum Level: 110
    Location: The Broken Shore
    Bosses: 9
    Difficulty: Raid Finder, Normal, Heroic, Mythic
Aegwynn used this sacred temple of Elune to lock away the defeated Sargeras’ avatar. She hoped it would remain dormant, buried deep within the earth, but the lure of power has continued to draw foul entities to this site. When Gul’dan reentered the tomb, he tore down Aegwynn’s wards and opened a doorway for the Legion to invade. Now the fel army tears at the vault, hoping to reclaim their master’s power.

Raid Unlock Schedule
  • Tuesday, Jun. 20 – Normal and Heroic Difficulties Open
    Tuesday, Jun. 27 – Mythic difficulty and Raid Finder Wing 1– Gates of Hell (Goroth, Demonic Inquisition, Harjartan) Open
    Tuesday, Jul. 11 – Raid Finder Wing 2– Wailing Halls (Mistress Sass’zine, Sisters of the Moon, Desolate Host) Opens
    Tuesday, Jul. 25 – Raid Finder Wing 3– Chamber of the Avatar (Maiden of Vigilance, Avatar of Sargeras) Opens
    Tuesday, Aug. 8 – Raid Finder Wing 4—Deceiver’s Fall (Kil’Jaeden) Opens.

The Deaths of Chromie: Time To Act
Chromie: gamine gnome, powerful bronze dragon, and time-twisting ally; a friendly force who makes ‘being Chromie’ look so easy, so much fun. Which is why it’s heartbreaking to have to tell you that when patch 7.2.5 hits, Chromie will die. Again, and again, and again, and again.

Which goes to show that being Chromie is equally a blessing and a curse. Of course Chromie is chirpy, it makes sense: she protects the timelines, stopping any who dare to unleash chaos and destroy our rightful, hopeful future. But it also has a significant drawback - Chromie knows that many possible futures contain cruelty, pain, and destruction. More specifically, they contain death.

Chromie has always known when she (and you, incidentally) will die, but something has changed in her timeline – and not for the better. The death she now sees is not the one she’s supposed to have, which is where you come in. You must help Chromie investigate who is behind these attacks and put a stop to them. And, maybe, you’ll work out what Chromie did (or didn’t) do that’s got somebody hellbent on ending her life.

Legion PvP Season 3 Ending June 13!
The time is nearly at hand to bring Legion PvP Season 3 to a close for all Arena and Battleground competitors.

Season 3 – End of Season Rewards
If you participated in Season 3, to ensure you receive the rewards that you’re due, please keep the following in mind:

Refrain from transferring your character(s) to another realm or faction until after Legion Season 3 has ended.
Legion Season 3 titles and mounts will be awarded approximately two weeks after the season ends.

Faction-Based Rewards
Don’t forget—end-of-season rewards are based on your faction. If you transfer your character to the other faction, you must have 50 wins after your transfer to receive the reward. Please note that you must have 150 wins for Gladiator and Cruel Gladiator.

When the dust settles, where will you stand this season? Click HERE to read the original post.

Connecting A3ers through Discord
Image
A3 is always looking for new and interesting ways to connect with its members. One of our greatest hurdles, though, is connecting members to each other. With everyone playing on different servers, different factions, and the limitations of the friends list – many of you have probably never had a chance to connect. We hope to use the Discord App to help solve that!

The major perk of an app like Discord is that communication is live. Meaning – you can see it on the fly (assuming you are logged in). This will be an advantage over the forum or twitter where you need to check in throughout the day. It will be especially helpful with organizing groups, sharing rare spawn information with others, or just getting to know your fellow A3ers!

A3 Forum Games
A3 has a number of forum games going for members to participate in. Members are also encouraged to start any new forum games they have ideas for. Head over to our new Games forum and jump in!


Help Support A3
Did you know that A3 has bills? It’s true! A3 has monthly and yearly bills related to the cost of operating the Agency. We earn some funds from ads on the site but most of A3’s operating costs are paid out of pocket.

Operating costs are the costs required to run the community – these do not include the costs of sponsoring giveaways. A3 is a volunteer operated project and we need the help of our members to keep the site online.
Currently, less than 4% of our members have contributed to assist with operating costs. Fewer than 1% of our members have contributed more than once.

A few spare dollars here and there can go a long way! Donations are accepted through PayPal and Patreon.

For more information about donating financially please visit our Supporter's Page.
