Azerite Armor Acquisiton in Patch 8.1

Recommended Posts

XtClQfq.jpg

Thaumaturge Vashreen returns in Patch 8.1 and sells Relinquished Azerite Armor tokens as well as specific Azerite pieces for a new Mythic+ called Azerite Impurity.

Check out our Tides of Vengeance hub for the latest Patch 8.1 news!

Changes to Azerite Armor Acquision from Mythic+

Blizzard recently posted about changes coming to Azerite gear from Mythic+ dungeons. They didn't make Azerite gear drop from the end-of-run chests, but instead, added a vendor that sells caches that reward random dungeon Azerite Armor piece for a given slot separated by item level. You can also purchase specific dungeon Azerite Armor pieces, but these are long-term goals for top players, as they're quite expensive. According to Blizzard, it's going to take approximately two to three weeks to purchase an Azerite cache that lines up with the item level of the gear you're getting from Mythic+ runs.

You can find more details in the article linked below.

New Mythic+ Currency: Azerite Impurity

Blizzard added a new currency in Patch 8.1 called Azerite Impurity that can be obtained from the weekly Grand Challenger's Bounty (weekly chest) and by scrapping or disenchanting Azerite Armor that drops after Tides of Vengeance is released, so hoarding Azerite pieces you're earning now will not yield the new currency. Grand Challenger's Bounty will no longer contain Azerite Armor in Season 2. We currently don't have any information about the drop rate of the new currency.

Thaumaturge Vashreen

The vendor is back selling Relinquished tokens and specific Azerite Armor pieces in Patch 8.1. When the next Mythic+ Season starts, and item levels increase, Vashreen's wares will increase accordingly.

The NPC can be found near his Ethereal friends (Azerite Reforger & Master of Fate) in your faction's capital city (Boralus & Port of Zandalar).

Wares

1. Relinquished Caches

Vashreen sells three tiers of caches for each slot. The prices increase with item level. Caches contain a random dungeon Azerite Armor piece for a specific slot.

Tier I (Item Level 355 Azerite Armor Pieces)

Every cache costs 125 Azerite Impurity.

Tier II (Item Level 370 Azerite Armor Pieces)

Every cache costs 400 Azerite Impurity.

Tier III (Item Level 385 Azerite Armor Pieces)

Every cache costs 1,250 Azerite Impurity.

Future Tiers

We also found item level 400 and 415 caches that will be used in Season 2.

2. Specific Item Level 385 Gear

A specific dungeon Azerite Armor piece costs up to 3,250 Azerite Impurity. These items will vary depending on your Class.

According to the previous post about az gear. Blizzard mention u can get 385 random gear every 2 to 3 weeks. 

Is gonna take 6 to 9 weeks for targeted az gear. 

I wish i could be wrong. And correct me if i m wrong. 

This feel like no RNG but no gear. Except u want to get full 3 targeted set for half a year. Consider u need to finish the cap level key (10/15) every week. Or it can take longer.

Blizzard said that they're multiple ways to get the currency via enchanting scrapping and your weekly chest. So if you want to get the currency you can Farm Mythic 0s and then scrap or disenchant and get all of the gear you want very quickly.

      Castle Nathria raid testing continues on the Shadowlands Alpha on Heroic difficulty and we will finally get to see the final boss of the raid—Sire Denathrius!
      (Source)
      On Thursday, August 6th and Friday, August 7th, we will be continuing our raid tests in Castle Nathria.
      Thursday, August 6th
      Artificer Xy’mox - Heroic Castle Nathria
      13:00 PDT (16:00 EDT, 22:00 CEST)
      Sire Denathrius - Heroic Castle Nathria
      14:00 PDT (17:00 EDT, 23:00 CEST)
      Friday, August 7th
      Hungering Destroyer - Mythic Castle Nathria
      13:00 PDT (16:00 EDT, 22:00 CEST)
      Lady Inerva Darkvein - Mythic Castle Nathria
      14:00 PDT (17:00 EDT, 23:00 CEST)
      As always, this testing schedule is very fluid and subject to the realities of a test environment. We might have to change the time of a testing session, change the bosses being tested, or cancel a test entirely, due to bugs, server hardware issues, etc. Keep an eye on this forum for the latest information, and thank you in advance for testing and providing feedback.
      To facilitate testing, players who have not committed themselves to a Covenant can speak with Acquirer Ta’est inside Castle Nathria to temporarily bind themselves to one of the four factions.
      Q: How do I get into the raid zone?
      A: In Oribos, Dalaran, Orgrimmar, or Stormwind, you may speak to Nexus-Lord Donjon Rade IV in order to teleport into the raid zone while it is open for testing. (The option to teleport into a zone will not be available when the zone is not open for testing.)
      Q: What character should I use to test the raid?
      A: Whichever you prefer. We will be scaling players’ effective level to 60 for raid testing, and their item level to an appropriate threshold for the encounter(s) being tested.
      Q: How long does testing last?
      A: The primary purpose of testing is to give us the information we need to balance the encounters, evaluate how mechanics are playing out in practice, and identify bugs. Once we’re satisfied that we’ve received that information for a given boss, we’ll be shutting down testing. Usually this takes anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours, but there are no guarantees.
      We appreciate you taking the time to test our content and look forward to reading your feedback.

      Following the recent suspensions of some Galywix members that were involved in RMT, the Gallywix community have deleted their website, Discord, and social media accounts.
      Some members of the Gallywix community were found to be participating in real money trading, and so Blizzard permanently suspended their accounts.
      Earlier today, the former raid leader of Method openly admitted that the guild was purchasing gold directly from Gallywix for real money. As a result, the Gallywix community have vanished into thin air and they've taken down their website, which currently does not load. The same goes for their Twitter profile, which no longer exists. They even deleted their Discord.

      On Reddit, people are already speculating they did this to prevent Blizzard from tracking down their accounts. Another Reddit user says boosting is too lucrative for Gallywix to be dead and they will reform in some way, since the community is still in tact.

      Engineers will gain access to a Holographic Auctioneer in Oribos, the new city hub added to Shadowlands.
      Reddit user HydraMods discovered that there is an Auctioneer available in Oribos, so we went to the Hall of Shapes to investigate.

      The auctioneer tells you to leave because you have no Engineering skill.
      Unfortunately, the Auctioneer will be available only when you learn the Engineering skill.

      In a Bloomberg report by Jason Schreier, we learn that Blizzard employees began circulating a spreadsheet to anonymously document their salaries and recent pay increases amid rising tensions in the video game industry over wage disparities and executive compensation.
      Schreier reports that an internal survey at Blizzard conducted in 2019 revealed that more than 50% of Blizzard workers were unhappy with their compensation, so the company would perform a study to ensure fair pay.
      According to Bloomberg, the results of the study were implemented last month, which caused an outcry on Blizzard's internal Slack.
      As a result, one Blizzard worker created a spreadsheet that began circulating in the company, and it currently contains plenty of purported Blizzard salaries and the recent pay bumps.
      On the other side of the spectrum, Bobby Kottick's 2019 compensation was worth $40 million at the end of that year, and the company also paid $15 million in stock awards and a sign-on bonus to CFO Dennis Durkin, based on the data compiled by Bloomberg.
      Some Blizzard employees said to Bloomberg that they were struggling to make ends meet while the revenue of Activision Blizzard grows each year. While producers and engineers earn well over $100K a year, game testers and customer service representatives are often paid close to minimum wage.
      One veteran Blizzard employee disclosed that they had a raise of fewer than 50 cents an hour, and they are making less now than they did a decade ago because there are currently working fewer overtime hours.
      To follow up on the article, Schreier shared a tweet from an ex-Blizzard employee that is currently working at Riot as Product Manager, where we see the salary differences in more detail.

      If you have noticed the PvP Brawl is Temple of Hotmogu this week instead of the announced Comp Stomp Resource Race, congratulations, you're not crazy! Blizzard have confirmed there are some issues with Comp Stomp and it won't be returning until after Shadowlands (it's currently scheduled for December 8th as it's next appearance, but that might also get delayed).
