Patch 7.3.5 Legendary Token Changes

Recommended Posts

qefYrBJ.jpg

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)

They can't calculate with smaller numbers or what? Blizzard allways prove they can't balance anything..

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.

      It seems we're getting a whole lot of Alterac Valley soon, as Classic is getting the 1.12 version in one of the latter content releases and we're getting the special 15th Anniversary edition on live servers in Patch 8.2.5 during the event! Today at midnight CEST there's another Play with the Blues event on the 8.2.5 PTR gathering all Valley enthusiasts and all you have to do is hop on to the PTR and use the Group Finder to jump in!

      You can get the high-rez versions of the two original mounts from the event, which you can check out here as well.
      Play with the Blues (source)
      Tomorrow 12:00 AM CEST, please join us on the 8.2.5 PTR for an old school Alterac Valley Play with the Blues.
      Starting promptly at 3:00 p.m. PDT, Blizzard employees will be testing our 15th Anniversary rendition of AV on the PTR, and you can join us for some strife in the Field of Strife.
      Please log into the PTR by that time and then open your Group Finder (default hotkey: i) and switch to the Player vs. Player tab. You’ll see Alterac Valley waiting for you to join.
      Afterward, please return to this thread with your feedback.
      Thank you!

      The news image above is fan art created by Dogslug. You can find more of his work here.
      Blizzard mentioned multiple times that they would add Allied Races whenever they fit the story. The Horde's hottest candidates are currently the Vulpera of Vol'dun, even though their story doesn't make a whole lot of sense right now. Recent rumors suggest that Gilgoblins could be in the final pair of Horde Allied Races too.
      The Vulpera currently have too many unique animations, and they are a community-favorite. Pretty much every Horde player wants them to become playable. They're coming, and it's just a matter of when. We think the first set of Allied Races will be introduced in Patch 8.2.5 with the second one coming in Patch 8.3.5. Based on datamining, the Vulpera should be live on or before September 20th. You can find all their customization options here.

      On the other side of the spectrum, the Alliance will get Mechagnomes led by Prince Erazmin of Mechagon, but it's still not clear what the second race will be.

      Lightforged Forsaken led by Calia Menethil are a possibility based on the Before the Storm novel and Calia also received a new model in the initial Patch 8.2.5 build.
      Next up are Gilgoblins! We encounter them in zones like Vashj'ir and Nazjatar in Patch 8.2. They are a species of aquatic goblins created by Hobart Grapplehammer. Gilgoblins are very similar to traditional Goblins. They have various tattoos and fins on their arms to help them swim.

      Gilgoblins are currently not included in the game files as playable races as opposed to Mechagnomes and the Vulpera. They only exist as creatures.

      The female model has more customization options compared to the male model. Would you like to see them become playable in the future?

      We know that Blizzard wants to add more customization options to World of Warcraft, and a recent leak suggests that all Allied Races will become customization options in Patch 9.0 except for the Nightborne and the Vulpera. Let's see what the first set of Allied Races is going to be now that Patch 8.2 should hit Public Test Realms reasonably soon!
      TL;DR
      The first set of Allied Races (Mechagnomes/Vulpera) coming in Patch 8.2.5 on or before September 20th. The final set of Allied Races will include Gilgoblins and Lightforged Forsaken (based on the Before the Storm novel) in Patch 8.3.5. We know that Mechagnomes and the Vulpera are coming, but what about the second set of Allied Races?

      Frozen Arathi Basin (Resource Race)
      Put away your bathing suit, pull out your parka, and enter a winter wonderland as the Arathi Basin you know and love gets a fresh coat of ice and snow. You'll be racing your way between the farm, stables, mine, lumberyard, and blacksmith through piles of snow and over a - mostly - frozen lake. One more thing: the weather forecast calls for a bit of fog of war. We hope you're prepared for the weather.

      Today's hotfixes come with a lot of nerfs to Queen Azshara. Vitality Conduit now correctly transfers health from a target with absorb shields, and more.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Dungeons and Raids
      Azshara’s Eternal Palace Queen Azshara When either Aethenel or Cyranus is slain on Normal, Heroic, or Mythic difficulty, there is now a 3-second delay before the other one gains the Torment buff. Azshara's Indomitable is now summoned 10 seconds later than previously observed on Mythic difficulty. Tidemistresses have 5% less health on Mythic difficulty. Fixed an issue where casting either Moonfire or Regrowth twice in a row while affected by Repeat Performance was not triggering the silence. Fixed a bug on Mythic difficulty where the damage effect from Deferred Sentence could trigger the healing reduction from Obey or Suffer right as the decrees transitioned between each other. Siege of Boralus  Corrected an issue where players’ pets were unable to attack the tentacles during the Viq’Goth encounter. Items
      Heart of Azeroth Vitality Conduit (Essence) correctly transfers health from a target with absorb shields on them. Learning new ranks of Conflict and Strife (Essence) should now properly grant achievements such as Power Up.

      Artifact Knowledge will continue to increase each week until the week of October 1, according to Blizzard, despite the fact that in previous Seasons, it ended around the twelve-week mark.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Is this being cut off soon? Or are you leaving it on indefinitely?
      It’s been 8 weeks now, and 8.2 kicked off with 4 weeks of AK already calculated into the game, so in theory, we’ve had 12 weeks of AK at this point. AK ended around the 12-week mark in the prior seasons.
      This is an inquiry, I’m not asking that it be cut off. I think they should leave it on, but that wouldn’t fit the prior seasons.
      No to both questions. 🙂
      As things currently stand, Artifact Knowledge will continue to increase each week until the week of October 1.
