Patch 7.3: Artifact Knowledge Changes

Recommended Posts

Ig5cGpj.jpg

In Patch 7.3, the Artifact Knowledge cap was increased back to level 50 and you no longer need to head back to your Order Hall for research.

Instead, you will automatically gain 1 AK level each week and all characters will start with Artifact Knowledge Level 41 when Patch 7.3 goes live. The focus in 7.3 shifts to the Netherlight Crucible and relic customization (Insignia of the Grand ArmyInsignia of the Grand Army).

The multipliers are the same as they were when AK Level 50 was introduced back in 7.2's Build 23657.

Artifact Knowledge Level Multiplier
41 5,200,000%
42 6,760,000%
43 8,790,000%
44 11,430,000%
45 14,860,000%
46 19,320,000%
47 25,120,000%
48 32,660,000%
49 42,460,000%
50 55,200,000%

If we can get to 50 now, is it possible we will see more traits? People might be able to get every rank of Concordance now.

I doubt that when there will be relic talents.

I'm not sure what's meant by "relic talents", it is confirmed that you can now "customize" relics at an object called the Netherlight Crucible, what this entails specifically is unknown but it is likely that you can simply alter what traits it buffs. There are "crafting" materials for the Crucible called "Essence of Shadow" and "Essence of Light", likely used to fuel these relic "customizations". There's even a Legendary ring introduced in 7.3 that will increase the amount of those Essences you get by 50%.

 

This is - as far as I know - all the information we have regarding this new Netherlight Crucible feature.

 

To debunk what Stan said, there's actually a string in the ptr data that says:

Quote

ARTIFACT_RELIC_TALENT_AVAILABLE

A new trait is available at the Netherlight Crucible.

Rank 50 is simply 10x the amount of AP as rank 40. The AP elite mission token would only give you 1.25 billion AP, rather then the current 125 million. You need 200 TRILLION AP to get THE last trait - Not the entirety of Concordance, but the last trait itself. Thus, the AP elite mission token gives you .01% of the AP you need towards the last trait of Concordance. The entirety of Concordance is, what was it, 800ish trillion?

 

I think the figures was that even with rank 50, you would need several years in order to reach 50/50 Concordance. 30/50 is a more realistic goal with AK 50 though.

I don't mean to be Mrs Misery but, as someone with a lot of alts who has had to change my playstyle to keep up with the content, doesn't this  (lvl 41 AP instantly) make all the previous effort meaningless? I'm wishing I had just got mine to lvl 110 and left them to be honest. 

Thank you for all the patch notes etc. Very, very useful.

I mean, the game has been out for a year. I don't think raising AK has been useless. This is the same as saying that you might as well level and never do any raids or dungeons, because you can wait 10-14 months and use the end of expansion catch-up mechanic with gear.

      Another week has gone by in Mythic+ and we have plenty of changes, as Shamans surge, Retribution does well and more. This week's tuning hasn0t affected the rankings yet, but we'll see what happens next week!
      Note: The logs are based on POINTS, and not actual damage or healing, meaning they log the timed completion for the specs, with higher keys getting more points, obviously. The time in which the dungeon is completed is also a factor, but a much, much smaller one, as it grants very few points if you do it significantly faster than just any in-time completion. We're also using the Normalized Aggregate Scores numbers, for clarity, meaning the top spec is marked as 100 and then the rest are ranked in relation to that peak point.
      This past week was:
      Fortified, Afflicted, Raging
      All Keys
      95th percentile DPS
      You just can't keep Fire down no matter what you do. While the top 2 remains the same, the Mage spec claws back up into 3rd after having gone down for a little while. The Shamans have united and are stronger together apparently, as they take over 5th and 6th, with Enhancement leading the way. The biggest mover this past week was definitely Retribution, as it gains 5 spots in 7th. Fury drops down 3 spots into 8th, just ahead of a very stable Havoc and a resurgent Survival, which leaps 5 up into 10th. Unholy joins Affliction and Assassination in the bottom 3.

      Mythic+ All Keys 95th Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
      All Percentiles
      The top 3 is more stable in the generalist bracket, but Fire also rises here, moving quite a bit more, 3 spots in fact. Enhancement is doing better here as well and Elemental is doing even more so, with the melee side of Shamans up 2 in 5th and the spellcaster up a giant 7 spots in 9th! Retribution is up here as well and Fury is down, Windwalker moves down as well and Havoc remains the rock of both rankings, anchoring it all in 10th here.

      Mythic+ All Keys All Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
      Tanks
      There's been quite the re-shuffle with tanks as we see Paladins on top and Brewmasters way down in 4th after being in the lead at the start of the season. Vengeance has also moved quite a bit up into 2nd, while Blood remains stable in 3rd and Druids and Warriors remain at the bottom.

      Tank All Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
      Healers
      Shamans reign supreme still, while Discipline takes over 2nd and Holy also rises one into 3rd. Preservation is down two, while the bottom 3 remain the same as at the start of the season.

      Pattie's Cap is a new Alpaca mount coming in Patch 10.1.5.
      The mount is rewarded upon earning the Whodunnit? achievement in Patch 10.1.5. The achievement references a new holiday called Secrets of Azeroth. We'll cover that in a separate post soon.
      Pattie
      Provisionist Kathos encountered Pattie on her first assignment to Vol'dun. Pattie developed an affinity to Provisionist work but is eager to delve deeper, helping adventurers in their sleuthing.

      As with other megadungeons, Dawn of the Infinite will be separated into two wings with Mythic+ and Heroic difficulty available in a future update to the game.
      This will probably occur at around Season 3 when a new dungeon rotation's added.
      The latest Patch 10.1.5 Build 49908 adds entries of two separate wings for the Dawn of the Infinite megadungeon, which means it will be enabled for Mythic+ in the future with Heroic difficulty available:
      Dawn of the Infinite: Galakrond's Fall - The infinite dragonflight has invaded the Bronze Temple. Help Nozdormu and Chromie take back the Timeways! Dawn of the Infinite: Murozond's Rise - Murozond rises. Race against time with Chromie to correct the past!

      Blizzard is adding upgrade tracks for Mythic Item Level 441 gear in Patch 10.1.5.
      Currently on live servers you cannot upgrade Mythic gear. However, that's about to change in Fractures in Time when Mythic Gear will receive 3 upgrade ranks.
      Rank 1 Upgrade: Item Level 441 > 443 Rank 2 Upgrade: Item Level 443 - 445 Rank 3 Upgrade: Item level 445-447 The change also applies retroactively to Great Vault loot / any loot obtained before the patch goes live, as per Reddit comments.
