wow Gold Making: Stockpiling Obliterum for Patch 7.1.5

9 posts in this topic

6yL8fQX.jpg

ObliterumObliterum prices are currently low, but expected to rise again with the release of 7.1.5. Why not make use of it?

ObliterumObliterum is now super cheap on many realms and now is not the ideal time to sell it. If you want to make gold out of it, I recommend to stockpile it and wait until Patch 7.1.5 goes live. Why?

There are many reasons why the prices of ObliterumObliterum will be rising.

  • In Patch 7.1.5, we will be able to increase a crafted item's level up to 865 (the item level cap was increased to 855 in Patch 7.1).
  • Patch 7.1.5 brings a new Artifact Knowledge catch-up that will encourage people to level up their alts.
    • This results to more demand as most players will want to quickly gear their alts and what's better than crafted items upgraded using ObliterumObliterum?

How to Get Obliterum?

Destroying most of the crafted Legion gear will yield Obliterum AshObliterum Ash. We've got some neat guides that talk about ObliterumObliterum taking various professions into account.

Tips

  • Allocate your investment (the more gold you invest, the higher your profit).
  • Check your Auction House regularly for cheap amulets that are below the price of ObliterumObliterum. Destroy them and slowly build up the amount of Obliterum you will have available with 7.1.5.
  • If you've got Alchemy, try to find a supplier or check the Auction House for cheap Yseralline SeedYseralline Seeds.

The Future of Obliterum

Blizzard mentioned during BlizzCon they want crafted gear to stay relevant throughout Legion and they achieve this by increasing the amount of times you can upgrade crafted gear using ObliterumObliterum with every patch. I suppose the same will happen in Patch 7.2. What do you think?

Obliterum was a nice idea in concept but rather crappy in execution. If you want a full set of crafted, maxed out armor, you better have a ton of gold.

One or two pieces of armor to bump you up to a needed ilvl is OK, but saying it's competitive with other means of gearing is a bit absurd.

Mats have been absurdly high in Legion as it is.

Also for the sake of curiosity, what is considered low prices? On my realm it's 3K per and up.

On my realm, Oblitetum costs currently 1,800 Gold.

The bloods vendor did help a LOT with this, though.

I think it depends on realm. Some mats are a bit cheaper but herbs like starlight rose are still insanely expensive. Inscription has been a real letdown given how much time you have to sink into it to get anything worthwhile, compared to other professions. The darkmoon faire crafted trinkets might as well have been removed for the expansion.

Maybe I'm just unlucky as far as the realm i chose to play on.

Yeah, when I saw the Vantus Runes at first, I thought they'd be a big savior for Inscription. Super let down by it, tbh.

It makes more sense to just have progressively better items the closer you get to max instead of having a bunch of average stuff and then best items at 800 with a huge gap inbetween them as far as leveling goes. I mean you don't even have primary stat gems until you ding 800. Could have had something at like 775 that was half of what the Saber eye gems are and used those while you leveled up to 800. It's the same with the BS stuff. You have items that are worthless once you hit level cap and then you have to spend a ton of time to unlock the demonsteel armor when you could just run dungeons and do world quests and get gear.

Yeah, it definitely could have used a slight rework. I'd love to see progressive scaling, where basically from 700-800, you make a different piece of gear depending on your current stat level. For example, just using random numbers:

  • At 740, it has 250 crit, 250 mastery. 
  • At 780, it has 350 crit, 350 mastery.
  • At 800, it gets a bigger boost and ends up as 500 crit, 500 mastery.

Would need to be refined a lot and worked on, but I think it could work.

      June 13th will see the end of the third season of Legion PvP and if it follows the timing of Season 2 and patch 7.2  we may be seeing 7.2.5 as early as June 13th. That timing seems about right, as the ToS raid has been (tentatively) planned for "mid to late June" and the raid itself will probably come a week after the patch launch.
      Blizzard (source)
      The time is nearly at hand to bring Legion PvP Season 3 to a close for all Arena and Battleground competitors.
      Season 3 – End of Season Rewards
      If you participated in Season 3, to ensure you receive the rewards that you’re due, please keep the following in mind:
      Refrain from transferring your character(s) to another realm or faction until after Legion Season 3 has ended. Legion Season 3 titles and mounts will be awarded approximately two weeks after the season ends. Faction-Based Rewards
      Don’t forget—end-of-season rewards are based on your faction. If you transfer your character to the other faction, you must have 150 wins after your transfer to receive the reward.
      When the dust settles, where will you stand this season?

      The Deaths of Chromie is a new solo scenario coming in Patch 7.2.5. If you manage to stop all 8 attacks on Chromie within the time limit (The Deaths of Chromie), you will get a Transmog set. These rewards seem a little less underwhelming than Sets we get from Trial of Style, but players will be running it mostly to get the pets.
      Spoiler Alert
      Completing all 8 attacks within the timer is your goal and for that you get the following sets that are recolors of gear from previous expansions. More information can be found in our early preview.
      Cloth Wearers
      Ensemble: Chronoscryer's Finery
      Leather Wearers
      Ensemble: Riftscarred Vestments
      Mail Wearers (Missing Shoulders)
      Ensemble: Epoch Sentinel's Mail
      Plate Wearers
      Ensemble: Timewarden's Plate

      46 new Legendary items have been added to the game in Patch 7.2.5 up to the most recent build 24163 and it's become difficult to keep track of them all, which is why we created a list of all new Legendary items sorted by class.
      Patch 7.2.5 brings almost 50 new Legendary items to the game.
      Blizzard got inspired by Diablo's Hellfire Amulets and brought them to World of Warcraft in 7.2.5.
      Legendary Items in 7.2.5
      Legendaries dropping after Patch 7.2.5 is live will have a new base item level 970. Existing Legendary items can be upgraded with Stabilized Titan Essence to 970. The quest is very similar to how Distilled Titan Essence worked when Patch 7.1.5 was released. More information can be found here.

      Trial of Style is a new micro-holiday scenario added in Patch 7.2.5 and we previewed it a while ago in more detail. Blizzard recently added set rewards to all transmogrifiers that you can purchase after collecting 25 Mog Week Tokens.
      Mog Week Token is the main currency of the transmog micro-holiday, earned from Mog Week Prizes, like Mog Week Reward: First Place. All sets are from Burning Crusade dungeons, only the Mail set contains world drop items, like Der'izu Chestpiece, Der'izu Legguards and so on. Below, we previewed all sets that you can get by turning in 25 Mog Week Tokens.
      Cloth Wearers
      Ensemble: Mana-Etched Regalia
      Leather Wearers
      Ensemble: Obsidian Prowler's Garb
      Mail Wearers
      Ensemble: Marshcreeper Armor
      Plate Wearers

      The vendor also sells Fashionable Undershirt for 1 Gold but it requires the Stylish! buff earned by winning 1st place in Trial of Style. The buff lasts for 5 days and stacks.

      People jumping into a well from a very long way away. Because.
      Back in my day™ all we did was idle on the old Orgrimmar bank roof all day and it was totally exciting. This newfangled Legion expansion is taking everything to the extreme, including idling in the city - and this proves it! The latest reddit activity seems to be jumping from quite a long way a way straight into the sewer portal well for... reasons, and there have been quite a few damn impressive holes in one. Super holes in one you might say. Usually with these you slowly build up to the amazing one, but the amazing one is just too amazing to wait, so let's just begin at the top with the clear winner, with an outside the green shot that will haunt you (source):
      Then we have some Monk action (source):
      Unfortunately can't embed this one so you'll have to go through the agony of having to actually click it! (Source)
      The Warrior one has a plot twist at the end: he DIDN'T end up in Azsuna! (Source)
      The druid version seems a little boring, but impressive nonetheless (source):
      Then we have a ground level shot (source):

      And finally, I know I said the best one was at the beginning, but I lied. Here's the clearly most impressive super hole in one (source):
