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):

inv_sword_1h_short_a_01_hd.jpgBaleful Armament

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.

      It's been a while since we last heard of Rextroy, and that's because he had to farm 90,000 Echoes of Ny'alotha to obtain enough Infinite Stars to gather 675 Corruption (before Resistance) and one-shot enemies in Arenas.
      In the latest video, Rextroy explains how powerful 27 Infinite Stars can be in Arenas and why Protection Paladin is a really good choice for this method since the class has so many immunities, as the 495% damage taken increase makes you extremely squishy.
      This Infinite Stars procs may not one-shot players with some sort of defensives up, but it should still deal damage equal to 80-90% of their health. Pets add an additional layer of RNG because Infinite Stars procs at random targets.
      A few words from the man himself:
      Now, here's Rextroy with 675 Corruption, 495% increased damage taken and 27x Infinite Stars in action!

      Following the tragic passing of Reckful, thousands of players paid tribute to the streamer in-game on almost all servers and Redditor Alyvidy shared a video of the Stormwind Cathedral filled with Alliance and Horde players and captured how genuine and caring the WoW community is.

      With a few months of BfA still left, we compiled a list of things to do in the game before they get removed or changed when Shadowlands hits. Read on for details.
      1. Ahead of the Curve: N'Zoth the Corruptor
      Assemble a group and defeat N'Zoth on Heroic difficulty. Uncorrupted Voidwing will become unobtainable when Shadowlands goes live.
      2. Mythic Season 4 Title & Mount
      If you want to get the Awakened Mindborer, you must earn the Battle for Azeroth Keystone Master: Season Four before the release of Shadowlands. To do this, simply, complete all Battle for Azeroth Season 4 dungeons at Mythic Level 15 or higher, within the time limit.
      If you can't get the mount, you can at least try getting the Awakened title that is earned by completing all Battle for Azeroth Season 4 dungeons at Mythic Level 10 or higher, within the time limit (Battle for Azeroth Keystone Conqueror: Season Four).
      3. Phenomenal Cosmic Power Achievement
      Certain Essences tied to Mythic Season 4 will become unattainable when the Season ends, making it impossible to earn the Phenomenal Cosmic Power and the Azeroth's Champion title.
      4. Save Up 5 Million Gold for the Mighty Caravan Brutosaur
      Blizzard will be removing the Mighty Caravan Brutosaur in Shadowlands from the vendor, so now would be the ideal time to start making some serious gold when you want the mount. Chances are you will not be able to get it from the Black Market Auction House when it becomes even rarer to get.
      (Source)
      Hello! Yes. About that …
      Like all dinosaurs, the Mighty Caravan Brutosaur's days are numbered. I can confirm that when Shadowlands goes live, the shady vendors Talutu and Tricky Nick will cease selling it. Their other offerings – the Lost Platysaur pet and the Palehide Direhorn mount, will remain available for purchase.
      We will make sure that the unforgettable Brutosaur mount is added to the lists of possible items that are sold in the Black Market Auction Houses. And of course, this new Achievement "Conspicuous Consumption" is a Feat of Strength, so as such things go, it's not actually very conspicuous.
      The Mighty Caravan Brutosaur comes with an Auctioneer and a premium price tag! Be ready to spend up to 5,000,000 Gold to get it!

      5. Mythic Jaina Mount
      The drop chance of Glacial Tidestorm will drastically decrease and the mount will become rare once Shadowlands is out.

      As a result, Blizzard hotfixed Mythic Jaina so that she drops 2 Glacial Tidestorm mounts on live servers on February 14.
      (Source)
      Dungeons and Raids
      Battle of Dazar' alor Lady Jaina Proudmoore now drops 2 Glacial Tidestorm mounts (was 1) when defeated on Mythic difficulty. Ny' alotha, the Waking City N'Zoth the Corruptor now drops 2 Ny'alotha Allseer mounts (was 1) when defeated on Mythic difficulty. With these mounts becoming quite rare once Shadowlands comes out, taking 20 weeks or more for a full Mythic raid group to get the mounts felt excessive. 6. Mythic N'Zoth Mount
      The same applies to Ny'alotha Allseer that drops from N'Zoth on Mythic difficulty on live servers. You can get two per run, and the drop chance will decrease when the new expansion is live.

      7. Mythic Season 4 Elite PvP Armor Sets
      The Elite Notorious Gladiator's Armor appearances are gated behind reaching various ranks in the ongoing PvP Season. They are going away with the end of PvP Season 4. There are four sets in total (Cloth, Leather, Mail, and Plate).

      8. Level Up a Demon Hunter & Death Knight
      Both Demon Hunters and Death Knights start at level 10 in Shadowlands, instead of 98 and 55 respectively, so it would be a good idea to level them up right now instead of waiting.
      9. Battle for Azeroth PvP Achievements
      The Conqueror of Azeroth and Servant of N'Zoth achievements will also be harder to get when there are fewer players playing BfA content in Shadowlands, as pointed out by Redditor cybishop3.
      10. Mythic+ Mounts
      Mounts like Sharkbait's Favorite Crackers from Freehold, Mummified Raptor Skull from King's Rest, and Underrot Crawg Harness from the Underrot will be harder to get, because you won't be able to farm them by doing low keystone runs and your chances will be reduced to one per week. Thanks gnotagnelfbutagnome for adding this.
      A list of things to do before the new expansion is out!
    • By Stan
      Blizzard added a Feat of Strength achievement for the Reins of the Mighty Caravan Brutosaur in this week's Patch 8.3 build and confirmed that the mount will no longer be purchasable from vendors when Shadowlands goes live.
      Until then, you will still be able to buy the mount for 5,000,000 Gold from the vendors. Lost Platysaur and Palehide Direhorn will still be available when the new expansion goes live from vendors, but Reins of the Mighty Caravan Brutosaur will be added to the list of possible items sold in the Black Market Auction Houses in Shadowlands.
