wow Patch 6.2 Apexis Crystals - Baleful Gear

10 posts in this topic

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.

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.

      Mione is back at it and this time it was the Emerald Nightmare's own Cenarius that went down vs. the lone Vengeance Demon Hunter. Pretty damn impressive since EN is technically still the same tier as the current endgame raid, Nighthold (even though it's waay behind on item levels). The fight itself is pretty exhilarating as well, as the health on the DH keeps flying up and down the whole time!
       
      And here's the armory link for the 918 ilev Demon Hunter.

      Better stats and scaling in PvE, worse scaling in PvP and more changes are live.
      Update: It seems the procc rate was buffed as well and we'll find out the exact details in the hotfix notes later today.

      After the big announcement about the Artifact Knowledge cap being reduced, today we're getting a bit of an offset (or consolation prize for some) as the "infinity trait" aka Concordance of the Legionfall just got buffed, at least in PvE. The changes are up already on live servers.
      Placeholder for tweet 867444216745439232 It did not get the base buff PvP, however, and the scaling actually got nerfed:
      Placeholder for tweet 867444363655233536 We also got some clarifications on when exactly the PvP tuning comes into effect:
      Placeholder for tweet 867445986959818752 And in the most recent update, we found out the procc rate was buffed as well, but we'll be getting more details later:

      Mythic+ scaling, major Arms Warr changes, another brawl with the blues and more on this week's PTR.
      Another new week on the PTR and another batch of development notes. Mythic + difficulties will scale a little more steeply as the buff to mobs health and damage will go up by 10% instead of the 8 so far. We also have some significant changes to a few classes again, with Arms Warriors getting the biggest and Marksmanship and Beast Mastery Hunters getting Honor Talent tweaks. There are also new legendaries and T20 tweaks, a new concert at the Darkmoon Faire and there's another skirmish with the blues this weekend. We also got the raid testing schedule for the weekend, featuring 4 mythic bosses and an open LFR.
      Lore (source)
      Hi everyone! There’s a few things to call out for this PTR update:
      First, we’re continuing iteration on 7.2.5 class changes, and this build has some pretty substantial changes for a couple of specs. Arms Warriors in particular have a lot of updates and revisions, and both Marksmanship and Beast Mastery Hunters have several changes to their Honor Talents.
      We’re also continuing to iterate on Tier 20 set bonuses, and have added several new Legendary items in this build. Once the PTR is up (or shortly thereafter), you should be able to find the new Legendaries on Flaskataur in Dalaran if you’d like to give them a try.
      We’ve turned on the Darkmoon Faire for this week as there’s a new band in town! The concert event starts every hour on the half hour. We’d like to get some testing and feedback, so please let us know what you think!
      This build also has a tweak to Mythic Keystone difficulty. Specifically, the amount of health and damage that enemy creatures get from each additional difficulty level is increasing from 8% health and damage to 10% per keystone level. When we increased the overall difficulty of Mythic+ dungeons in 7.2, we didn't fully account for the increase in power that players would get from their new Artifact Traits. That hasn't been a major problem just yet, but once the Tomb of Sargeras raid opens and the maximum item level from drops increases, everyone’s going to get a LOT stronger in a hurry, which will quickly compound the issue. We're making this change to ensure that things don’t get too out of hand at the top end of the spectrum.
      Lastly, we’d like to do another Skirmish with the Blues this week to gather some data on where PvP balance currently sits on the PTR to assist with PvP tuning. We’re scheduling this for Friday, May 26 from 2 PM to 4 PM Pacific time (5 PM to 7 PM Eastern). Any data we can get at this stage will be extremely helpful, so we hope you’ll join us.
      Thanks again everyone, and happy testing!
      Previous dev notes (May 16).
