Artifact Knowledge Catch-up Compendium

Recommended Posts

24423-artifact-power-spending-off-spec.j

We'll be able to catch up on Artifact Knowledge in Patch 7.1.5 using Order Resources.

The main source of Order Resources is the Blood of Sargeras trader in Dalaran. You can buy Order Resources CacheOrder Resources Cache that will give 200 Order Resources for one Blood of SargerasBlood of Sargeras. Bloods are farmed via World Quests and Heroic+ dungeons.

Main Characters

A new quest was added to your Class Hall called Knowledge is Power. You need to turn in 500 Order Resources to get Artifact Research SynopsisArtifact Research Synopsis.  The quest is repeatable and can be completed until you reach Artifact Knowledge level 15. After that you will need to place work orders as usual. A total of 7,500 Order Resources is thus required to reach said AK level. That's 37.5 Blood of SargerasBloods of Sargeras.

Alts

Depending on the Artifact Knowledge level of your main, you can purchase research compendiums and mail them to your alts. These items are bound to your Battle.net account.

As an example, if you have Artifact Knowledge Level 15, you can buy Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I & IIArtifact Research Compendium: Volumes I & II for 1,000 Order Resources. I think every 5 levels of Artifact Knowledge will unlock a new compendium. If you use the item without any research documents, you instantly reach Artifact Knowledge level 10 (it's like that on PTR right now).

I'm not really sure, what does the wording "when used in conjunction with all Artifact Research documents" mean on the compendiums meant for alts. Does it make sense to stockpile & not use Artifact Reseach Documents on alts (before 7.1.5 goes live) to get the highest possible AK? Or will those be consumed along with the use of Compendiums?

If i have kept my artifact knowledge in the bag of one of my alts, will I be able to buy up to AK15 and then use the ones that I have stored in my bag?

The wording is the way it is to work with people who have AK Research Notes in their bags. If you use the Compendium that boosts your AK level to 10, it will boost your AK level to 10.

Let's assume you're starting at AK level 1. If you have 9 Research Notes in your bag, it'll consume them and give you a free level to get to 10. If you have 11 Notes, it'll consume 10 and leave one there.

I believe the main focus of the wording is to stop people from using it to get to AK20, then using the previously researched notes to jump to 25. It will consume any notes that you have in your bags, up to 20.

Is there a pre-requirement for this quest?  Other than being 110?

I don't have it available on either of my 110's.  Just the normal artifact research options.

So if an alt has researched to level 15 I still need to buy the I-IV compendium for 2000 OH resources to get to 20? Wonder why they would do it that way? Why not sell separate tomes for 1-5, 5-10, 10-15, 15-20? If I am understanding what you are saying, this means I will be sitting stagnant on my lowbie alts until the patch comes out.

On the plus side, at least Bloods are super easy to farm, so there's no shortage of resources!

      The BfA Arena World Championships have finished and we have the winners of the EU and NA regional Championships! Wildcard Gaming and M2KC have taken home $50,000 each and a whole lot of prestige, and some awesome-looking medals! so big congratulations to them! You can check out all the games over on the Warcraft YouTube channel.

      AWC Regional Champions (source)
      The best PvP teams from around the world competed in a grueling season of head-to-head arena action, but in the end only one team from each region could claim the championship.
      Congratulations Wildcard Gaming and M2KC who battled their way through fierce competition to rise as the Arena World Championship (AWC) Battle for Azeroth Regional Champions!
      These teams have managed to ford their way through all comers despite a year marked by a global pandemic and a move to a fully online competition. They’ve competed in a circuit against the best PvP teams from around the world through a series of four cups with each team ending the Battle for Azeroth season with winnings of $50,000 (USD), AWC Championship trophies, and securing their spot in the Hall of Fame.
      EU Champions - Wildcard Gaming
      After a grueling season, Wildcard Gaming faced off against XSET on Saturday night. In an intense battle, featuring an incredibly quick final map win, Wildcard Gaming triumphed 4-1 to secure the title of European Champions.

      NA Champions - M2KC
      The North American final proved even more ferocious, as M2KC dominated Charlotte Phoenix in the final match to secure a 4-1 final victory and the NA Championship.

      “Even after 13 years, you never know what to expect from the Arena World Championship,” said David Hollings, Product Lead for Arena World Championship. “Every single team really stepped up their game entering the fir ever AWC Circuit. This year has been incredibly difficult for everyone and I cannot think of a more exciting way to conclude the Battle for Azeroth season.”
      While the AWC Battle for Azeroth season has concluded the Arena competition doesn’t end there. Be sure to catch the start of the WoW Classic Fall Conquest next weekend on October 3 on YouTube and Twitch. Stay connected with the latest World of Warcraft Esports news and content on the AWC and MDI websites, YouTube, and don’t forget to follow the brand new WoW Esports Twitter account!

      We've recently talked a lot about the strange occurrences that happened on the US Khadgar server when it  failed a realm connection, as many players had their accounts set back to around Mists of Pandaria, and the subsequent restoration of said accounts. Popular YouTuber MadSeasonShow was one of the ones affected and has made a video going through what happened after his character restoration, including additional potential issues with the restorations.
      As you'll remember, while characters were brought back to their current levels, the old copies of those characters (if they existed in MoP) were left on the accounts, so players had doubles. The thing is, some of these characters could have very valuable items that were since either lost, deleted or sold, and could potentially even re-sell them, and as MadSeason mentions, there could be some REALLY valuable stuff in there like the TCG mounts or similar. In any case, check out the video for a quick overview of the whole situation:
      And, because it's pretty funny, here's the original video from when the characters simply vanished/were deleveled and no one was sure what was going on:
      Khadgar's troubles potentially aren't over yet, as the failed realm connections are coming up again tomorrow, so let's see what happens this time!

      Monks are a class that did not receive many changes on the Shadowlands Beta until very late in the cycle. We're checking out the latest round of Monk changes, one month ahead of Shadowlands release.
      Highlights
      Energizing Elixir has been removed from the global cooldown. Blizzard is aware of balance concerns Windwalker Monks have about dual-wield and Two-Handed weapons, and they are considering different options to address the problem, but they've got nothing to share at this time.  They are also aware of bugs related to Storm, Earth, and Fire in relation to other spells. They are looking to improve the reliability of the ability in future Beta builds. Weapons of Order (Kyrian Covenant Ability) has been redesigned for WW Monks. Multiple Legendary Powers have been tweaked. Monk
      Faeline Stomp (Night Fae Covenant Ability) now deals damage (or heals if Mistweaver) to targets in front of the Monk when cast and continues to deal damage to targets caught in the Faelines. Spinning Crane Kick now caps at 6 unique targets (was 5), dealing up to 60% damage (was 50%). Weapons of Order (Kyrian Covenant Ability) Brewmaster: For the next 30 seconds, your Mastery is increased by 10%. Additionally, Keg Smash cooldown is reset instantly and enemies hit by the ability take 5% increased damage from you for 8 seconds, stacking up to 5 times; Mistweaver: For the next 30 seconds, your Mastery is increased by 10%. Additionally, Essence Font cooldown is reset instantly and heals up to 6 nearby allies for (30% of Spell Power) Health on channel start and end; Windwalker: For the next 30 seconds, your Mastery is increased by 10% 13%. Additionally, Rising Sun Kick cooldown is reset instantly and your Rising Sun Kick reduces the cost of your Chi Abilities by 1 for 5 seconds, and Blackout Kick reduces the cooldown of affected abilities by an additional 1 second. Mistweaver
      Ancient Teachings of the Monastery (Legendary Power) - Your Tiger Palm, Blackout Kick, and Rising Sun Kick heal an injured ally within 20 yards for 120% of the damage done to an injured ally within 20 yards. Enveloping Breath - While active, Yu'lon and Chi'Ji heal nearby targets with Enveloping Breath when you cast Enveloping Mist, healing for [ 30% 180% of Spell Power ] over 6 sec, and increasing the healing they receive from you by 10%. Tear of Morning (Legendary Power) - Renewing Mist applies Extended Life to the initial target, instantly healing them for 145% of Holy Spell Power and increasing all healing done to them increases your healing done to the target by 15% for 12 seconds. When you heal with Enveloping Mist or Vivify, 50% of the heal is also applied to targets within your Extend Life effect. 25% of your Enveloping Mist and Vivify healing is also applied to all targets with Tear of Morning. Windwalker
      Haste now affects the periodic of Crackling Tiger Lightning. Energizing Elixir (Level 45 Talent) has been moved off the global cooldown. Blizzard has fixed a bug where Rising Sun Kick and Whirling Dragon Punch weren't contributing to Xuen's Empowered Tiger Lightning. Rising Sun Kick (Rank 2) restored. Increases the damage of Rising Sun Kick by 70%.

      Mirrors of Torment (Venthyr Covenant Ability) Arcane: Conjures 3 mirrors to torment the enemy for 20 25 seconds. Whenever the target attacks, casts a spell or ability, a mirror is consumed to inflict (75% 60% of Spell Power) Shadow damage and their movement and cast speed are slowed by 15%. The final mirror will instead inflict (198% 151% of Spell Power) Shadow damage to the enemy, Rooting and Silencing them for 4 seconds. Whenever a mirror is consumed, you gain 4% mana. Fire: Arcane: Conjures 3 mirrors to torment the enemy for 20 25 seconds. Whenever the target attacks, casts a spell or ability, a mirror is consumed to inflict (75% 60% of Spell Power) Shadow damage and their movement and cast speed are slowed by 15%. The final mirror will instead inflict (198% 151% of Spell Power) Shadow damage to the enemy, Rooting and Silencing them for 4 seconds. Whenever a mirror is consumed your Fire Blast cooldown is reduced by 4 seconds. Frost: Arcane: Conjures 3 mirrors to torment the enemy for 20 25 seconds. Whenever the target attacks, casts a spell or ability, a mirror is consumed to inflict (75% 60% of Spell Power) Shadow damage and their movement and cast speed are slowed by 15%. The final mirror will instead inflict (198% 151% of Spell Power) Shadow damage to the enemy, Rooting and Silencing them for 4 seconds. Whenever a mirror is consumed you gain Brain Freeze. Fire
      Fevered Incantation (Legendary Power) - Each consecutive Critical Strike you deal increases Critical Strike damage you deal by 2% up to 10%.

      He's at it again... This time around it's a ridiculous amount of healing, but only outside of Kul Tiras and Zandalar, and only for Alliance players. The main ingredient for this particular crazy stunt is the Gently Squeezed Toad, which you can summon every few seconds, then attack for over a million damage due to the damage aura that makes you deal more damage to low level mobs. And that's it, you just need some amount of leech to get crazy healing very often, with 500K individual heals and around 50-60K HPS with about 30% leech in Rextroy's specific example! The only problem is, this only works for Alliance, as the toy is only sold by Old Loola in the WoD Ally garrison and is BoP, so Horde need not apply.

      Check out the full video for the details, especially focusing on the World PvP uses:
      Here are more details on the technique, including a useful macro!
