Patch 6.2 Apexis Crystals - Baleful Gear

Recommended Posts

12615-patch-62-apexis-crystals-baleful-g

 

We take a quick look at the uses for your Apexis Crystals in Patch 6.2 in this guide to acquiring Baleful gear. In 6.2, Apexis Crystals can be traded in for gear that is slightly above the item level of standard dungeon drops, and further upgraded to just beyond the item level of a Normal Hellfire Citadel raid drop.

 

Baleful Apexis items can be purchased from Ravenspeaker Thelnaas (who you can find in Vol'mar or Lion's Watch, depending on your faction) in Patch 6.2 for 5,000 Apexis Crystals. Baleful items also drop frequently in Tanaan. These item level 650 items are available for every slot (on use, they convert to the appropriate armor type):

These items can in turn be upgraded to item level 695 using spell_arcane_arcaneresilience.jpgEmpowered Apexis Fragment, which cost 20,000 Apexis Crystals apiece. You will also get one spell_arcane_arcaneresilience.jpgEmpowered Apexis Fragment as part of completing the Garrison Campaign content in Tanaan Jungle in Patch 6.2!

 

Note: There is no cap to the number of Apexis Crystals you can have at a given time in Patch 6.2!

 

This will be a quick and easy way for characters to gear up efficiently after the patch hits, and worthwhile for any character that isn't already wearing Mythic Blackrock Foundry gear (within reason - set bonuses, etc. are a factor!). Upgraded Apexis gear will only be replaced by Heroic Hellfire Citadel (or better) gear.

 

Will you be farming Apexis Crystals in Patch 6.2 for gear? Quests, dailies, and bonus objectives in Tanaan Jungle will award Apexis Crystals. Several buffs and bonus events can also improve your rate of crystal acquisition!

Nope, won't ever really use apexis crystals unless they're BoA like the timeless gear tokens were/are.

That's because you're well geared! For people who don't raid too much, it's a good way to gear up tongue.png

So to get a "full set" we are going to need to get 260,000 apex and thats with all the pieces dropping in the jungle (add 65,000 if they don't.) Are there going to be any more fun ways to get crystals other then 800 a day doing the quests?  
so if you're only able to do the dailies to get the crystals (I know there are other ways to help speed it up a bit) but that'll take 325 days. for one character? 
For someone who hates questing (and is already going to have to do lore-master even though i have no idea where abouts I am on any quest chain) I cant see myself getting the willpower to farm this up. Even though I might need to in order to raid sad.png

 

Also do we know if Baleful Armament will make a 1h a 2h are we able to set it or is it just going to be random?

 

Edit: + 20k for a 2nd ring, +20k for a second trinket and +20k for an offhand. +5k for each of you have to buy the base level item too.

Quest values in Tanaan are much higher, and there is no Apexis limit - so you will be able to farm them freely. You likely won't need to spend the 5,000 for the initial drops, so you're only looking at 20k per slot that you need to upgrade (and, bear in mind, you'll have things like Mythic dungeons, bonus events like Timewalking, and upgraded crafting gear as well).

I would've liked the gear if I was able to send it to my Alts.

BoA Epic gear on Timeless Isle(MoP) basically rained down from the sky, but now the Apexis grind is a alt killer.

"Quest values in Tanaan are much higher" - This, This is awesome thank you. smile.png

To give you an idea, I have 80,000 Apexis Crystals from my PTR testing on one of my character and that amounts to like 2 weeks and a half worth of daily quests (and I just did the bare minimum for my testing needs).

Yes weepy there is a small chance for it to "proc" to epic quality.  Not exactly sure on the chance but its great when it happens.

      We are looking at the Monk Mage Tower set coming in Patch 9.1.5.

      The ripcord has been pulled in Patch 9.1.5, allowing players to freely swap between Covenants. In this post, we're looking at what you need to do to switch Covenants in the new patch.
      You must first reach Renown 80 to be able to swap Covenants in Patch 9.1.5 (Renowned). Then, head to the Enclave in Oribos, talk to the Covenant NPCs to join a different Covenant.

      Picking a new Covenant for the first time resets your Renown to 1. You will also need to begin with Chapter 1 of the Covenant Campaign. You will start with no companions and only have 1 Soulbind unlocked.
      Fortunately, you can buy Broker Mark of Distinction to instantly catch up on Renown and set it to 40. You can also purchase Timebound Ruminations near the Oribos' Flight Master to instantly raise a companion's level to 30.

      Blizzard have clarified that despite new class starter gear coming in patch 9.1.5, the old versions will not become rare or be removed permanently. Considering the specific wording below, the might be going away in the patch but then come back later, or they'll just come from a different source immediately, but in any case they won't be gone forever!
      Starter Gear (Source)
      Please don’t worry that any original starter gear might go away forever or become very rare.
      We’re working on making all of those various older starter pieces available to players who want to obtain them.

      That's the Spirit will be more difficult to complete in Patch 9.1.5, which is why you should complete it before the update hits live servers.
      As Hyrcyne points out, That's the Spirit can only be completed by incubating green (uncommon) seeds. Blizzard is making all previous locations that award uncommon quality seeds award rare quality seeds in Patch 9.1.5, meaning it will be more difficult to obtain them, which results in That's the Spirit being harder to complete.

      However, you can save all the hassle by completing the achievement on live servers before the update arrives on November 2.
