Lore previously alluded to changes coming to Legendary tokens in Patch 7.3.5. In the most recent PTR build, the tokens underwent a sixfold increase in price. The amount of Wakening Essences obtained from the usual sources has also increased, so you will be able to acquire them at the same rate. The change eliminates the benefit of stockpiling Essences before 7.3.5 goes live.

Item Old Cost New Cost
Awoken Titan EssenceAwoken Titan Essence 50 Wakening Essences 300 Wakening Essences
Purified Titan EssencePurified Titan Essence 175 Wakening Essences 1,000 Wakening Essences

You can find more information about the patch in our 7.3.5 content hub.

Awoken Titan EssenceAwoken Titan Essence is now a vendor item available from Arcanomancer Vridiel in Dalaran. The item is used to upgrade a Legendary item to item level 1,000.

Purified Titan EssencePurified Titan Essence is a new token that is consumed to discover a random Legendary item that you have not obtained yet just by setting a desired Loot Specilization. If you already own all Legendaries for your class, you will be instead given a random Legendary token for a different class.

Wakening Essences

We adjusted the 7.3.2 acquisition rates of Essences to reflect the latest changes.

Note: The amount of Essences may slightly vary from what we're going to see live.

Source Amount
Weekly Order Hall Cache 120 Wakening Essences per week
Antorus, the Burning Throne Raid 18-36 Wakening Essences per boss
Emissary Caches (Complete 5 World Quests) 24-60 Wakening Essences per bag
First Random Heroic Dungeon 30 Wakening Essences per day
Weekly PvP Quests (Earn 1,500 Honor) 42 Wakening Essences per category (2v2, 3v3, 10v10)

It is to prevent stockpiling now to a considerable advantage.

They're pumping them up so that people can farm them now and have them stored up, but also so they can't just have enough essence to buy every legendary when the patch drops

So does that mean any Awoken Titan Essences you have sitting in your bags are gonna be wasted?

 

No, they will not be useless, but if you have any legendary items to upgrade to 1000, you should do it before the patch as they will essentially have 1/6th the value after the patch. Blizzard is doing this to avoid someone saving up 1000+ Essences to just buy 10 legendary items after the patch.

People want to stockpilling because actual Legendary system is bad as hell. I don't know why need to punish players and change the first numbers to make it much harder.. This is so unsymphatic for me

Can't they, like, create some different item so people won't stack it up before the launch of 7.3.5. instead of what they've done?

I've done a quick calculation and found out that on average you'll get ~650-670 essences per week if doing only PvE content. That'll make us get a leggo every 1.5 weeks. Well... still better than rate I'm getting them at now.

I mean, if they make some new item then it would be the exact same time, with the only exception being you CAN'T store any up early so it'd just... be worse for people?

Also your math is off unless you're only counting Antorus once. You get them from LFR and normal mode separately for example. we also don't know if they effect the legendary protection, as far as I'm aware.

Well, they stated that the goal of increasing numbers is to render stocking up before the patch hits useless, see here:

Really? That's reassuring. Hope we can get them from HC and Normal separately as well.

It was clearly stated that legendaries bought with essences won't affect the protection. I, however, have doubts that said protection even exists, but whatever.

      No more Battle Chests or purchasing previous expansions, all you need is an active subscription!
      Well, no one has to to buy base WoW anymore, ever! Everything you need to do to play up until the upcoming expansion, Battle for Azeroth, is an active subscription. No more battle chests and individual purchases, just pay that monthly fee and access the entire game as it is at the moment, with nothing missing until August 14th, when you'll have to buy BfA for the new content. Additional digital deluxe items from each expansion are available at the Blizzard shop individually, but it's now easier than ever to jump into the game and just start playing.
      Recruit a Friend has also been updated:

      We found a cutscene with Vol'jin that presumably takes place after players defeat Blood God G'huun in Battle for Azeroth or at the end of the Zandalar Forever Scenario. This article contains spoilers.
      Now, remember this is an Old God expansion and we can't be exactly sure if it's really the good old Vol'jin or some sort of illusion that we're dealing with here.
      In the cutscene, Spirit of Vol'jin tells Princess Talanji to become the leader of her people and show them some sort of blade that was possibly used to kill G'huun. It's interesting to see that King Rastakhan does not appear here, suggesting he might be dead and it might be the right time for Princess Talanji to take over. The cutscene is a throwback to to the Black Panther movie. Credit to LeystTV for the video.
      Transcript
      Spirit of Vol'jin: Show dem, leader of Zandalar. Show da blade to those dat need to see it da most. Give dem peace. 
      Princess Talanji: Dis was not my achievement.
      Spirit of Vol'jin: Ya brought de champion to dese shores against ya father's will. Ya learned da secrets of G'huun when no one be listenin'.
      Spirit of Vol'jin: Ya set in motion what be needed ta save ya people. Now, more than ever, dey be callin' for a leader dey can love and trust.
      Spirit of Vol'jin: Show dem da blade. Become da symbol dey need.
      Princes Talanji: Behold de blood of G'huun. By his will were borne de deaths of Shadra, Hi'reek, Torga, and ...and Rezan.
      Princess Talanji: By his will were borne de deaths of so many of our brothers and sisters.
      Princess Talanji: Let dis glaive be displayed as a reminder dat no matter how far we fall, no matter how much we lose, we are Zandalari! We adapt, we find a way to survive!
      Princess Talanji: If it were not for dis hero of de Horde, our losses would have been far worse. DIs proves, more than ever, dat it is time for us to adapt, to become part of de world again.
      Princess Talanji: Zandalar forever!

      The patch is now live on EU, NA and AU servers, after some difficulties with offline realms and connectivity issues, so Blizzard have shared some known issues as well as some additional info on upcoming hotfixes for BoA legendary acquisition via Wakening Essences and the honor/prestige level changes.
      Known Issues (source)
      Hello all,
      Below is a list of known issues for patch 8.0.1. Please note that this list is not a complete depiction of what we're aware of, but a sampling of issues we believe players may encounter more often. We'll try to keep this updated with trending issues when possible.
      General
      Mounts: Gladiator's Proto-Drakes do not display information on how to obtain mounts in journal.
      Sometimes when summoning a player as they change zones, the summon prompt will not appear.
      Stat & Spell Squish Impacts
      There are multiple issues with legacy spells & monsters scaling incorrectly.
      Dungeon and Raid
      Legacy Loot: Many raid creatures no longer drop gold.
      Highmaul: Highmaul bosses are not dropping the appropriate amount of gold when the raid is set to mythic.Dungeon Journal - Baradin Hold: There exists an option to view Baradin Hold in 10/25 man Heroic even though the difficulty does not exist.
      A Lua error may occur if you try viewing the dungeon journal from the bonus roll prompt while outside of the instance.
      Communities/Guilds/Groups/UI
      Communities will reference "Starter Edition" accounts as "Veteran Trial".
      Guild: Inviting players who are currently in your group to a guild may produce an assertion.
      Opening the Character Pane after equipping a newly acquired item on a character may result in a crash.
      Looting the corpse after a boss encounter while in a group may produce an assertion.
      Communities: Blank spaces will appear in Guild rosters if players have not logged in for multiple years.
      Players may be unable to whisper cross realm when selecting whisper from Communities UI.
      Compatibility
      DX12: Intel PSO caching issue with Intel unreleased driver.
      DX12: Crash may occur when game uses more GPU Memory than hardware allows.
      Performance on some GPUs while using DX12 is lower than DX11.
      And here are some previous tweets we already covered, so you're up to date on everything in case you missed it, featuring Allied Race unlock requirements, Brawler's Guild currency conversion and Mythic mounts:

      The worldwide release of the pre-patch has not gone as smoothly as Blizzard would have liked and the Communities feature had to be completely disabled in Europe for now.
      Check out the list of known issues for problems that emerged after launch.

      Hi everyone,

      So, as you’ve noticed, today’s patch release has not gone nearly as smoothly as we would have liked. We’re sorry for how this has affected the stability and playability of the game while these issues have been ongoing. This has obviously not been the launch that any of us wanted.

      That said, we want you to know that there are currently several teams of people working hard to get you back in Azeroth and enjoying the Battle for Azeroth Pre-Patch as quickly as possible. We’ll share more details in this thread when we can.

      Thanks for your patience,

      The World of Warcraft Team Blizzard's working on a fix to enable the WoW Communities feature in EU. The in-game and guild chat channels remain are still available for use.

      As we work to identify the cause of these issues, we will be temporarily disabling the World of Warcraft Communities feature. The in-game and guild chat channels will still be available for use. The Guild Calendar may also be missing events while we address these concerns.
