wow What are Curious Coins in Legion?

9 posts in this topic

HxkZ3X7.png

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"

      Ban-Lu, Grandmaster's Companion is Monk's Class Mount. It doesn't have any color variations at this time and we're not sure if Blizzard plans to add different tints in future builds. Monks can get a pet from their Order Hall that perfectly matches their new mount. You'll probably have to unlock all Artifact traits to purchase it if it's gated like the new Death Knight pets.

       Ban-Fu, Cub of Ban-Lu (NPC - Ban-Fu, Cub of Ban-Lu) can be purchased from Mei Chele for 10,000 Order Resources.  Pet Abilities Spirit Claws Moon Tears Prowl Jade Claw Feed Vengeance

      Blizzard have an official preview of the brawls that will be coming to shake up the Battleground PvP system, with Gravity Lapse, Tarren Mill vs. Southshore and Warsong Scramble.
      Blizzard (source)
      With the release of patch 7.2: The Tomb of Sargeras, you can experience some of your favorite player-vs-player Battlegrounds with a little extra twist.
      Every other week a new PvP Brawl will be available to players looking for something just a little different. Each Brawl will offer a variety of modes, rules, and scenic changes to the usual Battleground gameplay, and you’ll find them in the Group Finder tool (hotkey “I”) in the Player vs. Player tab. Just like Random Battlegrounds, you’ll receive a reward for achieving victory. Here are just a few of the Brawls you can look forward to:
      Gravity Lapse – Resource Race
      Gravity getting you down? Step into the Eye of the Storm and be prepared for a whole new en-lighten-ing experience. Every minute, players on the battlefield will find themselves launched into the air, only to gently fall toward the ground once more in a perpetual aerial ballet as they try to accrue enough resources to take the win home for their team.
      Tarren Mill vs. Southshore – Warfare
      Originally introduced as a part of the World of Warcraft 10-Year Anniversary event, this Brawl harkens to the early days of WoW PvP with an epic battle between the two towns of Tarren Mill and Southshore. In this game of war, you’ll need to work as a team to deplete your foes’ resources to claim victory.
      Warsong Scramble – Capture the Flag
      Do you have a flag? Warsong Gulch has always been the scene of an epic Capture the Flag battle, but what happens when you can capture your enemy’s flag without your own at base? Find out when you step into this PvP Brawl! We’ve also added a few more power-ups to the field of battle to stir things up a bit. To win, your team will need to be the first to capture 5 flags.
      As with Micro-Holidays, these PvP Brawls are just the beginning. We look forward to seeing which ones become your favorites!
