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).

      Summary of the latest Q/A with Game Director Ion Hazzikostas about Patch 7.3.5 and beyond.
      Watch Now
      No questions about WoW Classic will be answered in this Q/A. In BfA, the Azerite system adds depth and customization that was used for Tier sets. For Battle for Azeroth, a lot of art variety will be added to the armor. There will be 1 appearance per armor type though, but more variety across zones. For transmog collectors it means more customization. There will be unique trinkets from raids. Azerite armor from raids will provide properties that can be found only in raids. Assembling people and maintaining schedule needs to feel worthwhile and properly rewarding. Patch 7.3.5 TL;DR: We'll see zone scaling, Legion epilogue quest content, Ulduar Timewalking and a preview of the new Silithus battleground (Seething Shore). In BfA, the focus shifts from racial identity to the faction conflict. Unlocking Allied races is more story-driven. Reputation barriers will be lifted. Doing the campaign should suffice. Heritage armor is restricted to races. More Allied races will be added in the future, but they want to add those that make sense story-wise first. Hunched races - Orc is the big one here. From the early beginning, we saw Thrall / Saurfang that had proper posture and it was a repeated request and they totally understand it. Darskpear Trolls will remain hunched - it's a part of the troll silhouette. Zandalari Trolls are upright though. Prestige system in BfA? They're looking at how the feeling of progression has been in Legion and are re-evaluating a lot of stuff. They want to make sure Prestige rewards are still available. Artifact skins in BfA  will be spec-restricted. Far fewer Legendary items will be seen in BfA, Blizzard will make them where it makes sense. As of now, they have no specific Legendaries in mind. No plans to change the Mythic raid size at the moment. The raid structure remained the same in Warlords, Legion and the trend will continue in BfA. They want to explore an option to enable Mythic cross-server raiding sooner. The team feels that Tomb of Sargeras was too difficult on Mythic difficulty. A few months after Antorus opens, there will be nerfs to Aggramar and Argus the Unmaker on Mythic. Is Aman'Thul's Vision personal loot? There's value in preserving discovery. We'll see in two weeks. When Mythic Antorus opens (Dec 5), you'll be able to get Mythic rewards up to +15. Order Hall Cache rewards will be retroactive.  Will Titanforging still allow you to get Mythic quality gear in Normal raids? Yes. It's about the moment of surprise. While you can still get a lucky drop, the Mythic raider is in all cases better geared than that lucky player. Odds of Titanforging will be looked into. They think it's happening too often. The idea of upward loot scaling is being carried forward. The hard cap on Titanforging would limit progression. World PvP will be revitalized in BfA. Creating a space where players who are looking for PvP can more reliably run across each other is the priority right here. Some players don't want to server transfer, yet they are stuck on servers with faction imbalance. The current thinking is to preserve the identity of RP-PvP communities. Legion is the expansion that brought the biggest class changes to World of Warcraft. It's jarring to come back only to see your class vastly reworked. Demonology will see a significant rework and Survival Hunter (the execution of the fantasy will be looked into). In terms of class changes, a good analogy would be Wrath of the Lich King to Cataclysm transition, minus removing 20 points of talents and adding 3 abilities to every class. Class buffs provide utility and they are returning in BfA. Some Artifact traits will be made baseline or baked into talents. For example Stormkeeper is a new Elemental Shaman talent available in BfA. Removing drawbacks from abilities is an area they are the most hesitant to entrench. What's happening with Hati for BM? It won't be carried forward. It's tied to Titanstrike.  It's cool to have multiple pets up as BM. and it's definitely something they could expand upon in the future. Improving animations is a long-term effort. New Warlock animations should be ready for the BfA pre-patch. Relics diluted the excitement of weapon rewards. The plan is to go back to regular weapon drops. The Underlight Angler will be carried forward, unlike other Artifacts. 50 characters per account limit will probably not be increased, but they're listening to community feedback.

      Highmountain Taurens are one of the three Allied races available to the Horde in Battle for Azeroth. In this preview, we're looking at the requirements to create a Highmountain Tauren, class / customization options and racials.
      Descended from Huln, brave hero of the War of the Ancients, the Highmountain tauren honor the spirits of earth, river, and sky. Though the Legion invaded their lands and sowed seeds of distrust between them, the tribes of Highmountain stand united once more. At long last they are ready to venture beyond their sacred mountain and stand beside their kin from Kalimdor, lending their nobility and strength to the mighty Horde.
      Available Classes
      Druid, Hunter, Monk, Shaman, Warrior Requirements
      In Danny's interview with Muffinus, we learned that you need to complete Ain't No Mountain High Enough and have some reputation standing with the Highmountain Tribe in order to gain access to a short quest chain to unlock the Allied race. Racials (Source)

      The Titan Pantheon themed trinkets coming with Antotus are definitely the most interesting piece of itemization that's come around in a while and they were pretty mysterious for a time when they were first datamined, but we've since found out exactly how they work and what's required for those secondary pocs to trigger. However, the exact numbers behind those procs, how many players would actually have to have them equipped to be optimal, what amount of DPS do the add, whether the legendary version was better than the regular ones and many more questions like that remained unanswered - until now.
      Ask Mr. Robot has put together this very useful infographic detailing pretty much any questions you might have about the upcoming trinkets, other than perhaps "when will one of these drop for me?"
      So, check out all the info you could possibly need and, in case you need a refresher, here are the actual trinkets themselves as well:
      Aggramar's Conviction; Aman'Thul's Vision; Eonar's Compassion; Golganneth's Vitality; Khaz'goroth's Courage; Norgannon's Prowess

      You should also check out the full blog post for additional info and details.

      In Battle for Azeroth, we're getting 6 new allied races that start at level 20. Alliance has access to Dark Iron Dwarves, Void Elves and the Lightforged Draenei, while the Horde can play as Nightborne, Highmountain Taurens and Zandalari Trolls!
      Here's a rundown of new sub-races available to both factions. In the screenshots, the characters are wearing what Blizzard calls Heritage Armor. It's a reward to show off your accomplishments and it is earned from leveling your Alied Hero character from 20 to 110. If you're buying a race change, you won't get it. In the What's Next Panel, we learned that it ignores armor types, so it seems all classes will be able to transmog the set once it's unlocked. Six allied races will be initially available and more will be added later on in the expansion. You can find out more information on the official website.
      Alliance
      Void Elves (Hunter, Mage, Monk, Priest, Rogue, Warlock, Warrior) Lightforged Draenei (Hunter, Mage, Paladin, Priest, Warrior) Dark Iron Dwarves
      Horde
      Nightborne (Hunter, Mage, Monk, Priest, Rogue, Warlock, Warrior) Highmountain Taurens (Druid, Hunter, Monk, Shaman, Warrior) Zandalari Trolls
      Highmountain Tauren Racials (Passive)
      Bull Rush (Instant, 2 min cooldown)
      Charges forward for 1 sec, knocking enemies down for 1.5 sec. Mountaineer (Passive)
      Increases your Versatility by 1%. Pride of Ironhorn (Passive)
      Mining skill increased by 15 and allows you to mine faster. Rugged Tenacity
      Reduces damage taken by X. Waste Not, Want Not (Passive)
      You have a chance to loot additional meat and fish. (Source)
      Lightforged Draenei Racials
      Demonbane (Passive)
      Experience gains from killing Demons increased by 20%. Final Verdict (Passive)
      When you die the Light avenges you dealing X Holy Damage to enemies within 8 yards and healing allies for X. Forge of Light (Passive)
      Summon a Forge of Light, enabling Blacksmithing. Blacksmithing skill increased by 10.
      Light's Judgment (Instant, 2.5 min cooldown, 40 yd range)
      Call down a strike of Holy energy, dealing X Holy damage to enemies within 5 yards after 3 sec. The racial looks very similar to the Vindicaar Core Matrix Power on Argus > Light's Judgment. (Source @Kalrell's tweet // Sloot's stream)
