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 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!

      There's been some changes to the way Blizzard handle PvP disqualifications, specifically those from end of season rewards. Players that have been disqualified from receiving these rewards will also be unable to queue for rated matches in the same season. More details below:
      Season Disqualification (source)
      As part of our continued efforts to combat cheating and unfair play in World of Warcraft, we’ve recently made a change to our policies regarding PvP disqualifications.

      As of the Battle for Azeroth Pre-Patch, any player who is found to have engaged in unfair practices that result in their disqualification from end-of-season PvP rewards will also have their ability to queue for rated PvP matches immediately revoked. This restriction will continue through the remainder of the season in which they were disqualified, which includes the current “Post-Season” available until Battle for Azeroth launches.

      This change is intended to minimize the impact that disqualified players have on those who are playing legitimately while the PvP season continues, and is just one aspect of our ongoing commitment to upholding the competitive integrity of World of Warcraft PvP.

      July 20 (source)
      Classes

Paladin Protection Fixed a bug preventing the Light’s Vanguard Battleplate 4-piece bonus from activating and deactivating as intended. Fixed an issue where Consecration occasionally failed to provide its self-buff. Rogue Assassination Fixed a bug where Blindside was not learnable until level 40. Warlock Demonology The Command Demon version of Spell Lock can no longer be cast without a target. Demonic Calling can now correctly be activated by casting Demonbolt.

       Dungeons and Raids
      The health and damage of all enemies in Emerald Nightmare, Trial of Valor, The Nighthold, and Tomb of Sargeras has been significantly reduced. The experience awarded on completion of a random dungeon has been increased.

They will return to their former function in a future patch.  
      Player versus Player

      You can reach Exalted with the Gelkis and Magram Centaur Clans in Patch 8.0.1. A bug prevented players that have already completed the questline to get reputation boost. Luckily, this has been fixed by Blizzard in North America and a hotfix will be up soon in Europe as well. The fix requires a server restart.
      Both reputations count toward the 100 Exalted Reputations achievement that rewards "the Esteemed" title and a mount (Pureheart Courser). You can find more details about how to start the questline here. If you completed Death to Agogridon before the pre-patch, speak to Karnum Marshweaver in Desolace to receive the reputation boost.
