wow What are Curious Coins in Legion?

9 posts in this topic

You might have grabbed one of these new coins while leveling up over the past week, but may not know what it is! Here's a full guide to what the Curious Coins are and what you can spend them on.

As one of the new currencies that have arrived in Legion, the Curious Coins might be a bit of mystery to some. They can be dropped from the following sources:

  • Dropped by bosses in Legion dungeons (all difficulties)
  • Rare chests and spawns around the Broken Isles
  • Emissary and Mythic+ caches

When you do receive one, you'll notice the flavour text included on the item that leads you to a vendor by the name of Xur'ios in Dalaran. To find him, do the following:

  • Go to Dalaran and to the Northern bank.
  • Once there, turn left and walk towards the statue of Antonidas. 
  • Xur'ios is standing between the two.

The vendor sells two "types" of items: those that are always available and those that are on a rotation. The items that are always available are all profession recipes and are listed as follows with their cost in Curious Coins:

Profession Item Cost
Leatherworking Recipe: Leather Love SeatRecipe: Leather Love Seat 1
Engineering Schematic: Mecha-Bond Imprint MatrixSchematic: Mecha-Bond Imprint Matrix 1
Blacksmithing Recipe: FlamespikeRecipe: Flamespike 1
Enchanting Formula: Soul FibrilFormula: Soul Fibril 1
Inscription Technique: Straszan MarkTechnique: Straszan Mark 1

The other items that are on a rotation can be slightly harder to grab hold of. A different item will appear on Xur'ios every day, with the possibility of there even being the same items for multiple days. If you're looking for a specific item, it's important to check back whenever you can. The following items are all part of the rotation, as well as being listed with their costs in Curious Coins:

Item Type Name Cost
Enchant Boon of the NetherBoon of the Nether 50
Player Buff Krota's ShieldKrota's Shield 50
Follower Equipment Ingram's PuzzleIngram's Puzzle 50
Player Buff Gjallar's Horn"Gjallar's "Horn" 50
Cosmetic Mote of LightMote of Light 50
Mount Arcadian War TurtleArcadian War Turtle 150

When it comes to actually farming these items, the best way to do so is just play the game itself. The drop chances are tied to completion of objectives that you would need to complete anyway, so go out into the world, complete your world quests, go through dungeons with your friends and hope that some of the coins drop.

Not seen any of these so far!  Are they tradeable :p

I looted from one in Eye of Azshara and, despite it popping up as a "piece of loot", it went straight to my currency tab. So I'm guessing not!

So that's how Curious Coin factors into the Mecha-Imprint Bond Matrix...I'd better get to leveling my engineer.

It's always nice to see homages to other titles, especially when you already know the reference. You have that moment of jumping up and down and pointing and going: "LOOK LOOK"

      This week's 7.2.5 PTR patch added a new tracking quest (fix?) for the undiscovered Shoe Shine Kit vanity item.
      Shoe Shine Kit is one of the few items that haven't been discovered yet and it should be available in the game since Legion launch. Every Sunday, Sheddle Glossgleam leaves the toy store (2nd floor of Photonic Playground - 44, 47) at 12 AM (PST) / 3 AM (EST) realm time and goes drinking in Legendermain Lounge. During his absence, a chest spawns, but nobody managed to open it yet. The WoW community has cracked down mysteries far harder than this, which is why I believe the chest couldn't be opened until now and Blizzard stealth fixed this in the latest PTR build by adding a new tracking quest related to the toy - Shoe Shine Kit Tracking Quest.  Notice the different ID in the old quest -  Shoe Shine Kit Tracking Quest.

      Comment from discussion Still a mystery: Every Sunday morning (tonight) Sheddle Glossgleam leaves behind a chest that nobody has unlocked.

      Squirky is a new capturable Murloc pet that can be found on the Seabreak Isle (Azsuna). In this mini-guide we're looking at how to capture him.
      There are murlocs and crabs that hit hard and it's easy to aggro groups of mobs. Make sure to approach Squirky on your flying mount and click him as soon as you land so you begin the battle before entering combat. The pet cannot be caged.
      Abilities
      Squirky has the following abilities
      Level 1 - Punch Level 2 - Clobber Level 4 - For Adventure! Level 10 - Fish Slap Level 15 - Stampede Level 20 - Bubble Pet Model

      Location Coords: Seabreak Isle - Azsuna (20,21)

      Tomb of Sargeras is coming within a month (hopefully) and we got the official preview with developer insights and some background lore for the raid and each individual boss. Mythic testing is on the way this weekend so the tentative mid-June release date might actually be possible, although near the end of the month seems more likely. In any case, enjoy the pretty detailed preview:
      Blizzard (source)
      Through dangers untold and hardships unnumbered, the combined forces of the Class Orders have fought their way through the Broken Shore to reach the Tomb of Sargeras. With weapons of great power and the Pillars of Creation at hand, the defenders of Azeroth must face these last foes before the portal is sealed, cutting off the Burning Legion’s access to Azeroth.
      Minimum Level: 110
      Location: The Broken Shore
      Bosses: 9
      Difficulty: Raid Finder, Normal, Heroic, Mythic
      Aegwynn used this sacred temple of Elune to lock away the defeated Sargeras’ avatar. She hoped it would remain dormant, buried deep within the earth, but the lure of power has continued to draw foul entities to this site. When Gul’dan reentered the tomb, he tore down Aegwynn’s wards and opened a doorway for the Legion to invade. Now the fel army tears at the vault, hoping to reclaim their master’s power.
      Encounters and Bosses
      You can learn a bit about each of the bosses below. Make sure you check out the in-game Adventure Guide (Shift-J) for a full list of tips for Healers, Damage Dealers, and Tanks. 
      Goroth
      As punishment for past failures Goroth’s flesh is marred with searing wounds. With every movement this behemoth makes, his flesh crackles and hisses with unending torment, a scourge he is happy to inflict upon those who oppose him.
      Demonic Inquisition
      Anticipating the arrival of mortal forces invading the Tomb of Sargeras, Kil’jaeden has called on his best captors, Atrigan and Belac, to lock down the interlopers and prevent them from using the Pillars to advance deeper into the dungeon.
      Harjatan
      Harjatan was trained from birth to demolish his enemies. Through a conquest of savage brutality, he gathered throngs of cave dwelling murlocs who see him as a god. Now, the naga brute merely has to bark a command and hordes of devout followers set themselves to task.
      Mistress Sassz’ine
      Mistress Sassz’ine has spent a lifetime binding the denizens of the ocean to her dark will. With this power, she summons nightmares from the briny depths to wash away any who dare challenge her.
      Sisters of the Moon
      The Sisters of the Moon served as wardens for the temple long before the avatar of Sargeras was buried beneath it. Even in death, the sisters maintained their vigil, but over the millennia something twisted their ability to distinguish friend from foe. Their madness slowly consumed them, and now any who enter their sacred chambers are put to death.
      The Desolate Host
      Once, this was a sacred burial site for the night elves, until the Legion corrupted these grounds with the Engine of Souls. This foul machine draws upon the energy of the dead, twisting them into abominations.These tormented spirits have become monstrosities, looking to feed on any who descend into the tomb’s depths.
      Maiden of Vigilance
      Charged by Aegwynn to defend the Tomb of Sargeras, the Maiden of Vigilance has stood watch for hundreds of years. Yet, the guardian did not foresee what effect the avatar’s seeping fel energy would have on this titan construct. Slowly warped by this maleficence, the maiden now seeks to destroy any in her path.
      Fallen Avatar
      When Aegwynn defeated the Avatar of Sargeras, she was unable to destroy his avatar. In an effort to seal it away, the armor was entombed beneath the Temple of Elune, where it remained dormant for hundreds of years. Now, with the Legion tearing down the tomb’s barriers, Kil’jaeden is in a position to reanimate the armor and unleash its power on Azeroth.
      Kil’jaeden
      Since striking the bargain that chased the Draenei into the stars, Kil’jaeden believed the Legion could not be stopped—yet, none of his deceptions have prevented you from reaching this critical moment. Infuriated that Sargeras’ promise of victory has never come to pass, the demon lord prepares to face you himself, for a final battle that will shape Azeroth’s destiny forever.
      We’ll see you in the tomb!
