Titan Residuum and Azerite Armor 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+ currency called Titan Residuum that can be acquired from scrapping Azerite gear after TIdes of Vengeance goes live.

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

Changes to Azerite Armor Acquision from Mythic+

Blizzard posted an overview of changes coming to Azerite gear from Mythic+ dungeons earlier in the cycle. Azerite gear drops from the end-of-run chests were a no-go and instead, they 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 considered long-term goals, 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: Titan Residuum

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

Titan Residuum is a new currency 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. Don't forget to complete your weekly M+ run to receive the new currency in next week's Mythic+ chest.

On PTR:

  • Scrapping ilvl 355 Azerite Armor rewarded 3 Titan Residuum.
  • Scrapping ilvl 370 Azerite Armor rewarded 12 Titan Residuum.
  • Scrapping ilvl 385 rewarded 35 Titan Residuum.
  • Scraping ilvl 415 Azerite Armor rewarded 365 Titan Residuum.

NoteDrop rates / costs may be adjusted when the patch goes live.

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).

Am I the only one that feels a little skeptical about this? It seems like a nice notion but if it's just going to be pieces from Dungeons and not from Raid content.  I can see this being beneficial for alt gearing but Blizz does not have the same concept of 'wallet' sharing via account per server as does GW2 or SWOTR.

      It's been a while since we checked in on the Covenant class and spec distribution from wowranks.io, with a lot more Renown opening up, new Soulbinds and Conduits and some balancing passes as well pushing certain specs towards different Covenants.
      The overall rankings haven't really changed, but the Night Fae lead has expanded since last we checked, taking up 35% of the population, as Necrolords languish at the bottom with only 15%. The numbers are also quite a bit higher since we checked a couple of months ago, as over 2.5 million new characters have been registered.

      But the much more interesting data lies with the classes and specs, as we take a look at the Covenant distribution for each of them! As usual Druids are extremely Night Fae-heavy, with 83% of the shapeshifters choosing the Ardenweald as their home, with Hunters and Mages in close second for the Fae, with 73% and 69%, respectively. For the Kyrian the Paladins are holding the line, coming in at 75%,  with Warriors and Priest representing the Venthyr most with only 57/ 47%. The Necrolords get an eclectic combo with Death Knights and Shamans, coming in at 62% and 52%.
      And the least represented Covenant/spec combos are definitely Necrolord Demon Hunters and Paladins, both coming in around 2%...
      Here's the full data:
        
        
        


      You can also head on over to wowranks.io for even more different ways to look over all the data.

      Bound Shadehound is a new mount obtainable in Patch 9.0.5 that will work in the Maw!
      All mounts will work in the Maw in Patch 9.1, but you will be limited to mounts that specifically work in the zone until then.
      Currently, on live servers, you either have to complete Layer 8 of the Twisting Corridors to get Corridor Creeper or get the other one (Mawsworn Soulhunter) from "The Hunt: Shadehound" events in the Maw. Luckily, the third and latest addition will be the easiest to obtain. You will be able to forge the mount by collecting Stygia Dust and Silver in the Maw. The new activity is called Stygia Crafting. Here's how the mount looks like in the game.
      Bound Shadehound
      "Created by deciphering and performing powerful runic magic, this Shadehound is bound to its creator."

      Power Infusion has recently been a hot topic in the community, with the logs being heavily affected by it, as many non-Priest specs are getting a lot of buffs during fights to boost their overall DPS. There's even some drama surrounding who gets the buff, and Shadow Priests not wanting to give it away, which we've recently talked about, but today there's at least a solution to the logs part of the issue.
      Warcraft Logs have added markers for Power Infusion and Innervate, so you can now see not only if a player received one of these buffs during a fight, but also how many! 

      Warcraft Logs creator Kihra explains in detail:
      This should make it a lot easier to track individual player performances and for players to improve through the logs, as it is now clearer whether someone is just outdpsing/outhealing you because they're playing better, or if they just got a bunch of external buffs!

      The half orc half ogre Mok'Nathal finally get some love, as Lonely Road pictures made some concepts for the race! Rexxar's kind don't get much attention in WoW, but they will be featured in an upcoming cinematic by Lonely Road and so they got some pretty cool models ready!
      One of the characters above is having way too much fun and might just be too cool for Wow. Plenty of players would have preferred this particular race to the slightly more generic mag'har we actually got (although straight-backs are always welcome), so we can hopefully see more of them in the future and give those tauren some size competition!
      Some great work by Lonely Road!

      While we now know that the Archon survives the events of the 9.1 patch cinematic, the scene was somewhat reminiscent of something we've seen around the holidays last year, as the Archon was killed during a regular Spires of Ascension run.
      In the patch 9.1 cinematic we see the Jailer/Anduin stab Kyrestia in the chest and take out her "key", but we also see her moving afterwards, and Blizzard confirmed that she survives the attack. However, when she was taken down at the end of last year in the dungeon, she actually died and had a special text pop-up that said "As the Archon perishes, all life in the zone is wiped out!", so it's probably for the best that she survived the Jailer's attack. Zovaal and Anduin didn't/couldn't take her down, but a regular Doomguard apparently has no problems:
      The kicker here is that she respawned after her death and one of the party members commented on it, basically predicting what will happen in patch 9.1:
      The death animation itself doesn't seem relevant, as we won't get to see the cinematic events in-game directly, but her holding her side is. So it's quite likely we'll be seeing that particular character animation of the Archon, spearless and injured, when we go to her after the events of the 9.1 cinematic! We'll see whether this will be just a special thing for Kyrian Covenant members or (more likely) we'll all get to see and talk to her after what happens, and it'll be really interesting to see if she'll be using the same animation as above.
      In terms of what actually happened in the "kill" above, it was another manifestation of the already seen bug where a Warlock pet goes a little crazy, being both hostile and friendly at the same time and gaining some serious power. The fact it went on to actually attack and eventually take down the friendly NPC was new, however, and we haven't seen any reports of it happening since.
