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.

Azerite Impurity - Unpowered remnants of Azerite armor, obtained from Mythic Keystone weekly chests and by scrapping or disenchanting Azerite armor.

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.

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.

Wouldn't the new Raid in 8.1 start offering 390+ gear?  And would this not be a form of 'catch up' gear in a way?

      With a fair amount of game adaptations heading over to Netflix in TV show form, the most recent and significant being the Witcher, Str1der has taken it upon himself to make a trailer for what a World of Warcraft show might look like. With the Warcraft movie not having done so well and having somewhat deviated from the original lore (although, so has the game itself at this point), it would really be a nice thing to see all the ancillary content featured in novels and comics etc. brought together in TV show format.
      The trailer is pretty well put together, however the choice of the song "Human" is clearly Alliance-favoritism and wholly inappropriate, therefore we all need to boycott it!!11 (For those of you that are sensitive to the faction allegiances, well, first of all, what's wrong with you, and second, that was a joke.)
      My personal favorite is when Illidan shows up and the song goes "some people have real problems", which is perhaps one of the most accurate song to scene pairings in the history of trailers.
      So, what do you think of the trailer and the idea of a Netflix WoW show? Should it focus on present day Azeroth and follow the expansions to give us a better understanding of the characters we interact with, or would you prefer it to start from the very beginning and eventually catch up?

      World of Warcraft's third expansion was released on this day 8 years ago.
      Deathwing transformed Azeroth forever as we know it. In Cataclysm, the whole world burned under the shadow of his wings and the expansion went live on December 7, 2010.
      Patch 4.1: Rise of the Zandalari
      The first major content patch of the expansion was released on April 26, 2011 and brought the reopening of Zul'Aman and Zul'Gurub. While Amani War Bear was removed from the game, players can still obtain a recolor of the mount (Amani Battle Bear) to this day.
      Patch 4.2: Rage of the Firelands
      The second Cataclysm patch went live on June 28, 2011 and included Firelands, a new raid with Ragnaros as the final boss, a new daily quest hub (Molten Front) and Dungeon Journal. Interesting loot from the Firelands includes Smoldering Egg of Millagazor that has a small chance to drop from Heroic Ragnaros, Flametalon of Alysrazor which drops from Alysrazor and Fandral's Flamescythe from Staghelm that gives Druid cats a fiery appearance.
      Patch 4.3: Hour of Twilight
      The final major content patch went live on November 29, 2011. Three new 5-player dungeons were released (Hour of Twilight, End Time, Well of Eternity). In terms of system updates, Raid Finder, Void Storage and Transmogrification were added to the game. The final raid Dragon Soul featured Deathwing as the final boss. Interesting drops include Reins of the Blazing Drake, Life-Binder's Handmaiden off Deathwing and Experiment 12-B from Ultraxion.
