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 Blazing Firehawk pet


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!

      Two weeks ago, Blizzard started the PvP Like a Pro series, where they talk to world best Arena players. The first part was about finding the right partners and the second discussed team composition. Part 3 is devoted to effective practicing.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Part 3 - Practicing Effectively
      Minpojke of team Northern Gaming Blue has achieved rank one in Arena every season since 2011. His current squad has been playing together for more than two years, and came third in the Global Finals at BlizzCon 2016. With his help, we’ve built a five-step guide to help you practice like a pro!
      Synergy - Align Your Team
      Before setting out on your quest to the top, make sure you’re “aligned as a team,” says Minpojke. Like in any group activity, “it’s very important that everyone has the same goals and the same drive to do what it takes to win.” Make sure your team shares similar ambitions, and is aligned on how much effort will be required to achieve them. And of course, make sure you have similar gaming schedules so you can play and practice together!
      Atmosphere - Stay Positive
      It’s important to have a good atmosphere while playing. Minpojke says, “If you and your group get along and even become friends, you’ll like playing and actually learn more as well.” Be sure that the mood stays positive so that you can enjoy competing and improving together. It’s much easier to keep a team motivated if you’re all having fun—it’s a game after all!
      Stated more simply, Minpojke says, “It’s easy to win as a team—in the sense that it’s easy to be happy and celebrate—but if you’re capable of losing together, then you’ll be a great team.”
      Strategy - Know the Meta
      When it comes to making practice effective, Minpojke feels it’s a priority to stay up to date with the current meta. He told us that the best way to do this is to follow tournaments, high-level Arena streams, and the PvP Leaderboards to see which classes are on top.
      “It’s quite easy to keep up with the meta. Watch streams to see what the pros are playing, and track the ladder to see which classes and compositions are at the top. And don’t forget to follow tournaments to see the best comps shine.” Once you’re confident in what you want to play, it’s time to queue up! As FabsS discussed in our previous interview, Minpojke says that it’s important to set your win condition before the gates open. “Ask what you want to achieve as a team; will you focus on a lot of CC or try to draw out the game longer?” Since you know what matchup you’ll be playing against, you can start to ask these questions and develop your strategy.
      Analysis - Review Your Games
      If your setup supports it, Minpojke recommends recording as many sessions as you can—they’re much more valuable then looking at a damage meter. He says that the first objective is to see if you followed your game plan. Did you stick to it? Did it work? If the answer to either of these questions is no, you need to work on executing the plan better in future or possibly changing it up all together.
      Watching your own recordings is also a chance to highlight individual mistakes. As Minpojke says, “Always stay self-critical, and always look for ways to improve—you’ll notice pretty quickly your most crucial and common mistakes.” While Minpojke emphasizes that “losing is arguably the best way of learning,” he also reminded us that “it’s very important to recognize when you do well.” Think positively here: no one can play the perfect game, but there are often good takeaways to be emulated going forward.
      Reviewing recordings of his gameplay is a regular part of Minpojke’s routine, as well as discussing previous matches with his team between games while queueing. You can learn from a win as well as a loss!
      Execute - Implement Your Analysis
      After watching the replays, it’s time to set your goals. Decide what you want to focus on, and “make plans before you queue for a session.” If there was a specific matchup you were struggling with, you can discuss plans for how you’ll react to it next time.
      In some instances, it could be worth writing some notes, especially if you have many things to focus on versus many compositions. Minpojke equated it to studying for a test, “Practice it, and read it over and over until it sticks in your head.”
      Minpojke attended his first BlizzCon with current teammate Zunniyaki in 2013, finishing in second place. Northern Gaming Blue are the defending European Champions, and with nine BlizzCon appearances between their players, they’re one of the most experienced rosters in the field.
      You can watch Minpojke and Northern Gaming Blue compete live at gamescom from August 23-26. For the full details on when and where you can watch, head on over to our European Championship Finals blog.

      With 7.3 on the horizon, Blizzard did an official preview of new caster animations with videos and developer comments.
      Blizzard (Source)
      With patch 7.3 on the horizon, we thought it was time to share some updates to combat animations for several casting classes. Similar to what we did with the melee classes at the launch of Legion, these updates are all about priests, mages, Restoration and Elemental shaman, and some additional refinements to Restoration druid casting animations! We’re also continuing to work on even more enhancements for additional classes at a later point in development.
      A little over two years ago, we set our sights on revamping combat animations. The team has wanted to renovate it somehow, but what exactly does that mean? To determine the answer, our development leadership put together a small group of people to come up with a prototype of what we thought could use some cleaning up. You are currently experiencing the fruits of this work with the new melee animations. Our final goal was to create new melee moves that would make the game feel better, but not change how the game was played. During this prototype phase, we also came up with a plan for casters, but didn’t have time to put it into production until now. Let’s dig into some of the things we did.
      We hope you enjoyed this behind-the-scenes look at the new caster visual updates. We had lots of fun creating all these animations and effects and look forward to hearing your thoughts on them.

      In Patch 7.3, Blizzard will be increasing the difficulty and rewards from dungeons across the board. The changes help keep dungeons relevant even at the end of the expansion.
