wow WoW: Apexis Crystal Bonus Event (13th-18th January)

1 post in this topic


Gather up your strength: it is time to grind some Apexis Crystals!


For this week's event, Apexis Crystals will drop more often from eligible creatures across Draenor. Most veteran players may find this event disappointing, but Apexis Crystals still have some enticing uses. Specifically:

  • You can buy Baleful gear for your main or for your alts that can be upgraded up to ilvl 695.
  • You can get a bunch of mounts and battle pets, as well as a toy that transforms you to an uncorrupted Arakkoa.
  • You can purchase bonus rolls to enhance your chances of getting the loot you need in Hellfire Citadel.
  • Horde characters can purchase some cosmetic helms.

Don't forget to pick up the The Time to Strike weekly quest from your Garrison. It requires you to complete 5 Apexis objectives and it awards 5000 Apexis Crystals, 1500 Oil, 1000 Garrison Resources and 500 Valor.


Let's break down where you can find these Apexis objectives and - more importantly - which are the most interesting rewards you can get with Apexis Crystals.



Apexis Crystals Objectives


Every day, you get a Garrison Campaign daily quest from your Garrison. This quest sends you to an area, which will award Apexis Crystals once the objective in said area is completed. You can get this quest at the small command table in your Garrison Hall; Shadow Hunter Ukambe for Horde or Scout Valdez for Alliance will be standing by this table. You can also buy the Scouting Missives for these objectives with Garrison Resources from your respective Garrison Quartermaster NPC.


The most efficient way to complete 3 or 4 out of the 5 total Apexis objectives at once for your weekly quest is doing the Tanaan Jungle dailies. We have a comprehensive guide about them, which you can read by clicking here.


By completing both the Garrison Campaign daily and the required Tanaan Jungle dailies, you can theoretically finish the weekly quest in a single day.



Things you can buy with Apexis Crystals


1. Gear


You can buy Baleful gear tokens from Ravenspeaker Thelnaas in Tanaan Jungle. Armor costs 5000 Apexis Crystals and weapons cost 10000 Apexis Crystals. You can also buy an Empowered Apexis Fragment for 20000 Apexis Crystals from the same vendor to upgrade your Baleful gear to ilvl 695 (705 with Valor Item Upgrades).


2. Mounts



The Corrupted Dreadwing mount, the only flying mount you can get with Apexis Crystals


The following mounts cost 5000 Apexis Crystals and 5000 Gold, and they require Exalted reputation with their respective factions. We have provided links to our guides for these factions.

The sole flying mount you can get is Reins of the Corrupted Dreadwing. It is sold by Dawn-Seeker Krisek in Tanaan Jungle and costs 150000 Apexis Crystals. It is available to both factions and it requires Friendly reputation with the Order of the Awakened.


Lastly, you can buy Mosshide Riverwallow from Dawn-Seeker Krek for Alliance or Dawn-Seeker Alkset for Horde. It requires no reputation, but it costs 5000 Apexis Crystals and 50000 Gold.


3. Pets



The Blazing Firehawk pet


The following pets require 2000 Apexis Crystals, 1000 Gold and Revered reputation with their respective faction.

A last pet that is available to both factions is Blazing Firehawk. It costs 2000 Apexis Crystals and it requires Exalted reputation with Order of the Awakened.


4. Other



One of the Arakkoa transformations from Rukhmar's Sacred Memory


The only Toy you can get with Apexis Crystals is Rukhmar's Sacred Memory. It costs 50000 Apexis Crystals and requires Revered with Ordered of the Awakened. It gives a pretty cool Arakkoa disguise.


One of the most useful things you can purchase with Apexis Crystals is Seal of Inevitable Fate. They are sold in Ashran by Fate-Twister Seress for Alliance and Fate-Twister Tiklal for Horde. You can get 3 Seals per week with an increasing cost (500, 1000 and 2000 Apexis Crystals).


Lastly, Horde characters only can buy several helms for Transmogrification purposes. Bloody Visage of the Laughing Skull, Frozen Visage of the Laughing Skull and Visage of the Laughing Skull  can be bought for 1000 Apexis Crystals and 1000 Gold, and they require Revered reputation with the Laughing Skull Orcs. At Exalted with the same faction, you can get Golden Visage of the Laughing Skull for 1000 Apexis Crystals and 5000 Gold.



You can read an old, but still useful guide on Apexis Crystals in our forums. Last but not least, you should prepare for the weekly events to come by reading our January survival guide!

      Lord of the Shadow Council is ready, but so are you!
      The Nighthold opens this week and finally we'll be able to put Gul'dan to justice. Our Survival Guide has all the information you need to know about the latest Legion raid.
      No prerequisites required to enter the raid. Ahead of the Curve: Xavius is removed when Nighthold opens. The raid has ten bosses and is non-linear. The first 3 bosses need to be defeated in a specific order:  Skorpyron > Chronomatic Anomaly > Trilliax After that you get access to 5 bosses that can be killed in any order. The last two bosses that need to be killed are Elisande > Gul'dan. Defeating Gul'dan on Mythic difficulty grants the Mythic: Gul'dan achievement and the "Vengeance Incarnate" title. Players will finally end the Suramar story line and acquire the Arcanist's Manasaber mount. If you've completed Unleashed Monstrosities, you can work your way toward completing Improving on History to unlock the base appearance. The Direbeak and Bloodgazer falcosaurs require Nighthold to open before you can get your mounts - Brilliant Direbeak & Predatory Bloodgazer. Glory of the Legion Raider also has some Nighthold-related achievements and rewards Defiled Reins. Raid Schedule
      Normal and Heroic difficulties are available starting January 17. Mythic difficulty and the first wing of Raid Finder will open one week later.
      Blizzard Entertainment
      Raid Schedule: Tuesday, January 17: Nighthold Normal and Heroic difficulties open. Tuesday, January 24: Nighthold Mythic difficulty and Raid Finder Wing 1 (Arcing Aqueducts) open. Tuesday, February 7: Nighthold Raid Finder Wing 2 (Royal Athenaeum) opens. Tuesday, February 21: Nighthold Raid Finder Wing 3 (Nightspire) opens. Tuesday, March 7: Nighthold Raid Finder Wing 4 (Betrayer’s Rise) opens. (Source)
      Nighthold Guides
      Our guide section has been updated with boss guides for Nighthold, don't forget to check them out to be Ahead of the Curve: Gul'dan. Should you need any help, feel free to post in the PvE forum.
      Skorpyron Chronomatic Anomaly Trilliax Spellblade Aluriel Tichondrius Krosus High Botanist Tel'arn Star Augur Etraeus Elisande Gul'dan (TBA) 7.1.5 Class Guides
      All 36 specializations in our Class Guides have been updated for the latest patch.
      Legendary Items
      After Nighthold opens, players will be able to upgrade their existing item level 910 Legendaries to item level 940. Emissary caches will start dropping Legendaries of item level 940 by default.
      Since the release of Patch 7.1.5, we've received a number of questions relating to the Nighthold Legendary item upgrades and how that process will work. We'd like to provide some clarity on what you can expect next week.
      When the Nighthold opens next week, players who have acquired at least one Legion Legendary item will find a quest in Dalaran to upgrade a Legendary from item level 910 to 940. This quest involves collecting a number of
      Essence of Aman'Thul, which can be found in the following locations:
      Nighthold Raid Bosses Weekly Mythic Keystone Cache Emissary Bags PvP Weekly Quests Once you have completed the quest, you'll be given a Distilled Titan Essence, which can be consumed to upgrade a Legion Legendary item to level 940. The quest is repeatable, so you'll be able to earn as many Distilled Titan Essences as you need to upgrade any Legendaries you have.
      Additionally, once the Nighthold is open, any new Legendaries you discover will already be item level 940. Note that this does not apply retroactively to Emissary Bags that you may already have in your inventory when the time comes. Only new bags earned after the Nighthold is open have the chance to reward an item level 940 Legendary.
      Tier 19 Sets
      Nighthold is the first raid to drop sets in the Legion and we've taken a closer look at Tier 19 here.
      Nighthold Mounts
      Fiendish Hellfire Core is a guaranteed drop from Gul'dan on Mythic difficulty. The drop chance will be reduced to 1% after a new expansion is released.
      Living Infernal Core has a chance to drop off of Gul'dan on any difficulty except LFR.

      The Stranglethorn Fishing Extravaganza was removed, because of CRZ issues. With Patch 7.1.5 it is back as a world quest, offering the same rewards, but now it's more forgiving as more players per region to complete the quest are considered winners. This is a good change especially for realms with high population.
      At BlizzCon they talked about 50 winners, but based on live, numbers seem to be higher.
      Winners will be awarded the Master Angler of Azeroth achievement, which is required for Accomplished Angler and the "Salty" title.
      Rewards that all winners can choose from are
      Arcanite Fishing Pole Boots of the Bay Dread Pirate Ring High Test Eternium Fishing Line Hook of the Master Angler Stranglethorn Fishing Extravaganza can now be found as a world quest in Booty Bay (similar to how quests appear on the map during the Call of Scarab micro-holiday).

      On January 16, 2007 the first expansion for World of Warcraft launched. The Burning Crusade turns 10 today!
      The expansion brought us two new playable races - Draenei and Blood Elves. We got flying mounts that were usable in Outland at Level 70. Outland became accessible via the Dark Portal in Blasted Lands. Sockets were introduced to the game and added to Jewelcrafting. The original Karazhan was added in the Burning Crusade expansion. The expansions added Tier 4 through 6 Sets. Patches
      Patch 2.1 added the Black Temple and daily quests and the opportunity to enter Hyjal. Attunement wasn't as easy as it is today. For Hyjal, you had to complete The Vials of Eternity, but the problem was that both Kael'thas Sunstrider and Lady Vashj dropped a limited amount of vials and it took months for a full raid to get attuned.
      Patch 2.2 added voice comms to the client.
      Patch 2.3 added Zul'Aman as a 10-player raid where you could get Amani War Bear and brought quality of life improvements to 20 - 60 leveling.
      Patch 2.4 introduced Isle of Quel'Danas, the first outdoor zone that was added with a patch. There was a lot of world PvP, daily quests, where the whole server had to participate to unlock a vendor, Magister's Terrace (where we learned that Tempest Keep was merely a setback) and the Sunwell Plateau raid.
      World Firsts
      Remember Nihilum? They snatched a lot of world first back in the day!
      Mount Hyjal
      Nihilum was the first guild to down Archimonde in Mount Hyjal.
      Serpentshrine Cavern
      Nihilum defeated Lady Vashj when she was bugged and I don't know if it counts as a world first, but there's no video of the kill, instead, here's one by Method.
      Tempest Keep
      Kael'thas Sunstrider was downed by Nihilum, another world first.
      Black Temple
      Illidan Stormrage was brought to justice by Nihilum. He drops two legendary items - Warglaive of Azzinoth and Warglaive of Azzinoth.
      Sunwell Plateau
      SK Gaming downed Kil'jaeden. who drops Thori'dal, the Stars' Fury.
      Are there any fond memories that come to your mind when you recall "The Burning Crusade"?

      Blizzard still hasn't resolved their issues with reward distribution for PvP Season 1. Initially, Starym wrote about how rewards needed to be re-evaluated and now we got an update about what actually happened and why there were delays.
      Each season, we reward titles to the players at the top of the 3v3 and RBG ladders based on the number of players we consider active in the bracket. For the last few seasons, we have only considered players active if they have a rating above 1000. For Legion Season 1, we made the mistake of also requiring players to have 50 wins to be considered. As a result, far fewer players were considered active than intended. Since rewards are a percentage of this set of people, we ended up giving out too few rewards, which in turn meant that many players received a lower-tier reward than they should have.

      Fortunately, we have a plan in place that will allow us to fix the issue and grant rewards based on criteria we've used in previous seasons. Within the next few weeks, we will re-evaluate the ladder from Season 1 and redistribute rewards. When this occurs, you will either receive the same reward you have currently, or, in some cases, a higher-tier reward.
      Rewards are coming and should be redistributed next week!
      Just a quick update, we're still reviewing the accuracy of the data, but barring any unforeseen problems, we hope to re-distribute rewards at some point next week. (Source)
