wow Item Lets You Avoid Getting De-masqueraded

You can buy Shimmerfield Crystals from a vendor in Suramar.

 

Reddit strikes again! Now, I realize this might be another of those things where everyone knew this but me, but on the off-chance there's someone else out there without this I felt I had to mention it. Redditor Argentha shared this proest of tips, possibly the most relevant one I've heard in the entire game ever: in Suramar, next to the Waning Crescent portal exit, there's an NPC called Jacin that sells Shimmerfield Crystals that put you into stealth when your Masquereade is broken:

Now, before you start jumping around in joy like I did, note that it does NOT work when you're mounted, since it cancels the effect. That does reduce it's usability to a degree, but it's till the best item ever for those extremely annoying elite quests where everyone and their mother is a detector. Unfortunately you can't just pop it just as you're about to get caught while mounted since it has a cast time. It lasts 5 mins, has a 3 minute cooldown period and you can buy multiples.

So huge thanks to Argentha, and everyone else that mentioned this even sooner on reddit. You may now tell me how everyone already knew this and how silly I look!

Nice. This'll be a life saver when it comes to the quests when there are mobs that can see through all around

Like I mention in the article, I have started HATING those elite quests in Suramar. Basically you cannot get to your party without bringing with you 50 mobs and then there's that awkward decision of do you stay and let them deal with the shit you just dragged in or do you try to run past them and "lose" the tail, except you never can and just wind up aggroing MORE mobs and dying. This will be a lifesaver.

At this point in time I only do suramar in tank mode and if I pull something by mistake I just go rambo, gorefiends grasp everything, and end up fighting an entire city block at a time. Works fine except for the right side of the city where even the basic adds are basically raid bosses.

Just in case you did not know this aswell:

Throughout suramar you can find plenty of baskets to hide in, whenever your disguise breaks just hop into one and reapply your disguise before exiting. saved my marbles from those 'tails' you're talking about more than once.

I actually did know this and yet have NEVER seen one, let alone been able to use one to hide in.

It can be tough when you have an entire city all running at you, ready to beat the crap out of you in a heartbeat!

Fleeing from mobs in Suramar an hiding in baskets feels like Assassin's Creed.

Pardon me, Jacin, I need to throw gold at you.

If I'd known about these yesterday (When the hubby and I started the Statecraft chain) I would have hated that run a lot less.

I feel like the Spongebob meme that got thrown at Overwatch fits perfectly in Suramar tbh..

      A guide that focuses on gold gain "on the go", no tedious tasks required.
      Highlights
      All materials sell fast No need to check out crafting value vs. profit You make gold "on the way" engaging in a wide variety of activities that don't focus on gold making, such as World Quests or Glory of the Legion Hero. Blood of Sargeras
      Get Boon of the Bloodhunter. It gives a lot of extra bloods. You will notice Bloodhunter's Quarry dropping from enemies. It will contain anywhere from 1-5 Bloods of Sargeras. Engage in content that gives you a lot of bloods, the best are Mythic+0 dungeons. After having acquired enough bloods at the end of the day, visit this website to determine the most recent gold value of Blood of Sargeras. On most servers, you will get the maximum value from Potion of Prolonged Power, but we'll be focusing on raw materials. Find Illnea Bloodthorn in Dalaran. If you found which item has the most value, create a macro depending on the item you'd like to buy: /run BuyMerchantItem(1) - Order Resources Cache /run BuyMerchantItem(2) - Lean Shank /run BuyMerchantItem(3) - Fatty Bearsteak /run BuyMerchantItem(4) - Big Gamy Ribs /run BuyMerchantItem(5) - Leyblood /run BuyMerchantItem(6) - Wildfowl Egg /run BuyMerchantItem(7) - Cursed Queenfish /run BuyMerchantItem(8) - Mossgill Perch /run BuyMerchantItem(9) - Highmountain Salmon /run BuyMerchantItem(10) - Stormray /run BuyMerchantItem(11) - Runescale Koi /run BuyMerchantItem(12) - Black Barracuda /run BuyMerchantItem(13) - Aethril /run BuyMerchantItem(14) - Dreamleaf /run BuyMerchantItem(15) - Foxflower /run BuyMerchantItem(16) - Fjarnskaggl /run BuyMerchantItem(17) - Starlight Rose /run BuyMerchantItem(18) - Leystone Ore /run BuyMerchantItem(19) - Felslate /run BuyMerchantItem(20) - Stonehide Leather /run BuyMerchantItem(21) - Stormscale /run BuyMerchantItem(22) - Unbroken Claw /run BuyMerchantItem(23) - Unbroken Tooth /run BuyMerchantItem(24) - Shal'dorei Silk /run BuyMerchantItem(25) - Arkhana /run BuyMerchantItem(26) - Leylight Shard Example: I found that I will get the most value from Fjarnskaggl, So I create this macro:
      /run BuyMerchantItem(16) You can adjust the amount of stacks you want to buy, but the best is to just spam the macro until you're out of bloods if you want to deplete them all.
      Enchanting
      Greatly synergizes with blood farming. You get a lot of gold by disenchanting everything. Don't disenchant BoE purples! Chaos Crystal is the main source of income and disenchanting epic gear has a chance to yield a Blood of Sargeras. The key is to obtain as much gear as possible from World Quests (look for quests that award purple items when doing your daily cache), Mythic+0 dungeons, LFR  and other sources. If you're doing Heroic dungeons, disenchant every rare item to get Leylight Shard. Disenchant all green gear you come across into Arkhana. Sell all crystals, shards and dust. Order Hall Missions
      To further improve your gold gain, don't forget about missions that award gold! If you're success chance is 200%, you're guaranteed to receive bonus gold. Don't forget to put everything in the Auction House.
      Closing Tips
      Mobile Armory is far more comfortable to use than the in-game Auction House. Legion Companion App can be used for Order Hall Missions. Sell all Defiled Augment Runes you get from LFR, Order Hall Missions.

      Build 23623 added five mounts that will be available from Reputation Paragon. For every 20,000 reputation gained beyond Exalted with Legion factions, you'll receive a new emissary cache that has a chance to contain one of the mounts.
      Mounts are tied to specific zone caches. No indications if they are a 100% drop though.
      Collecting 10 caches awards the Paragon of the Broken Isles achievement. You can obtain the following mounts (sorted as they appear in the video).
      Highmountain Elderhorn Wild Dreamrunner Cloudwing Hippogryph Valarjar Stormwing Leywoven Flying Carpet Highmountain Elderhorn and Wild Dreamrunner are probably only ground mounts.
      Which of the mounts do you like most?

      Mages are getting a flying disc (Archmage's Prismatic Disc) as their class mount in Patch 7.2. After talking to Archmage Kalec, you accept the quest Dispersion of the Discs and the objective is to complete a Ritual in the Eye of Eternity.
      These discs are radiating with power! It must be their proximity to one another. We must take them from here should they resonate further and cause a catastrophe in these sacred halls.

      I'll send them to the one place I know where we can reign their energies in, preventing any sort of explosion. I'm speaking of the Eye of Eternity.

      There we will be able to safely finish what Antonidas was unable to complete. Speak with me again when you're ready to leave.
