7.2.5 Legendary Item Upgrade Clarification

Recommended Posts

21777-silence-penalty-coming-to-wow.jpg

Build 24218 added new emissary caches, so it's safe to assume that you shouldn't be stockpiling 7.2 caches in false hope of seeing 7.2.5 Legendary items drop from them after the patch's live.

Here's a list of all caches that will drop new 7.2.5 Legendary items. 7.2.5 Legendary items will start dropping at item level 940 on patch day and only new caches earned after the Tomb opens have the chance to reward an item level 970 Legendary.

Old caches have different IDs and loot options, e.g. Valarjar StrongboxValarjar Strongbox vs Valarjar StrongboxValarjar Strongbox.

After the Tomb's live and you own at least one Legendary item, you will find a new quest in Dalaran to get Stabilized Titan EssenceStabilized Titan Essence and upgrade existing Legendary items from 940 to 970. 

The quest involves collecting 50 Writhing EssenceWrithing Essences that will likely drop from

  • Tomb of Sargeras Raid Bosses
  • Weekly Mythic Keystone Cache
  • Emissary Bags
  • PvP Weekly Quests

7.2.5 Legendary items won't drop from Relinquished tokens.

They've done a very good job, imo, of keeping older content at least somewhat relevant.

Agree. I finally have concordance and planned on taking it easy, when it comes to world quests, but am going to have to complete emissaries to get my legos upgraded now. Same old grindstone.

Why the Hell should we have to do the upgrade quest for every Legendary we have....its stupid  just upgrade the Legendaries and stop wasting our time

You don't get something for nothing in the real world, why should you in Azeroth. If you have that much of an issue with it, don't do it!

It's okay that we have to do something 4 it. Otherwise there would be an ilvl-boost instantly, this would not be incentive at all.

I don't mind having to upgrade one or two. But I have 14 across my characters at the moment, 10 on the main two characters I play, all to be upgraded... since they upped the drop rate of legends, it's kind of made it an issue... and devaluing them further in my eyes

Thats what i meant....1 quest to upgrade all a toons Legendaries is enuff work      we have already worked enuff to get the Legendaries in the first place.

Surely you don't have to upgrade every legendary immediately? As far as I'm aware, almost every spec has BiS legendaries, so you can always focus on them first?

Even with different legendaries being used for different fights, you'll still likely use 1 constantly and swap another. It's also forcing you to make choices based on what you feel will perform best etc.

Given "Legionfall RecompenseLegionfall Recompense // Legionfall ChestLegionfall Chest" are on the list for legos I hope they are on the list for the upgrade questline so  I plan on having 1500 Legionfall War Supplies 'stashed' ready for the quest.

1000 in bags, and 500 in a completed mission on the soon to be finished CC (US).

Those + hopefully the M+ cache which I'll open after getting the quest should get me damn close to 50 on day 1.

You're far better prepared than I am :p

Good luck with opening everything!

      The Warcraft universe Cosmology chart is one of the of the most important pieces of art we have, as it showcases the basic and primal forces of everything, so it's no surprise it's gotten quite a few makeovers recently. AJT_GameArt is back once again, improving his previous rendition once again, with some better images and characters associated with the various cosmic forces, including new Shadowlands figures!
      You can check out the reddit thread below for different versions of the piece, with and without the text, but it's

      Raid buff scrolls won't be returning and Blizzard also nerfed class buffs down to 5% in Shadowlands, so the removal of the Engineering battle rez was something entirely possible to give classes with combat-resurrection capabilities more prominence in raids.
      Fortunately, it is not going anywhere. Disposable Spectrophasic Reanimator was added in the recent Shadowlands Beta Build, and the item can be used by Engineers for combat resurrection. It still comes with the chance to backfire and kill the caster instead of resurrecting an ally.

      Shadowlands comes with tons of new customization options, but some of them are locked behind specific skin tones, hairstyles, and more, which is an apparent downside of the feature.
      Reddit user Nihux noticed that if you want to use Faces 16-30 on Human Females, you will be locked to a specific set of skin tones, and the games won't allow you to use those faces with other skin tones, and vice versa.

      Faces 1-15 are locked to the first set of skin tones.

      Faces 16-30 are locked to the second set of skin tones.

      Faces 31-45 are locked to the third set of skin tones.
      The restriction also applies to the new hair colors that can only be used with the new hairstyles, as pointed out by  Reddit user Katur.
      The restriction is in place for other customization options such as scars tied to specific eye color options. When you pick a different scar, your eye color will change automatically, and vice versa.

      Reddit user RlySkiz says it's due to age of the WoW engine that cannot handle texture recoloring while it is running, so every hairstyle + hair color or face has their own model/texture that loads. There isn't a blank model that gets colored based on what option you pick.

      In the latest blog post, Blizzard outlined changes to the Recruit A Friend system coming in the Shadowlands pre-patch.
      Starting with the pre-expansion patch, characters created by a recruited friend will receive a 30-slot bag (Extra-Spacious Knapsack) upon completing Exile's Reach, the new player experience. Note that characters recruited before the Shadowlands pre-patch will not receive Extra-Spacious Knapsack.
      Experience Boosts that are currently active for recruited players and recruiters who party together will be removed before the launch of Shadowlands. Other rewards that come with the program remain unchanged.

      RECRUIT A FRIEND UPDATES
      With the upcoming release of Shadowlands and the leveling adjustments that come with it, we’re making a few changes to Recruit A Friend. Beginning with the release of the pre-expansion patch, characters who are created by a recruited friend* will receive a unique 30-slot bag—the Extra-Spacious Knapsack—upon completing their adventure in Exile’s Reach as a part of the new player experience. The additional experience boost that currently exists for recruited players and recruiters who party together will be phased out before the launch of Shadowlands. All other rewards available with the Recruit A Friend program will continue to be available for recruiters.
      *Players who are recruited prior to the release of the Shadowlands pre-expansion patch will not receive the new 30-slot bag, the Extra-Spacious Knapsack.

      We're looking at some terrifying texture/model bugs from the Shadowlands Beta, shared by Software Engineer Matt Yan on Twitter.
      The first bug makes the Worgen model look like a Trogg and second one is really difficult to describe, and I don't even want to know what happened to the poor Pandaren.
