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).

Wares

1. Relinquished Caches

Vashreen sells three tiers of caches for each slot (Head, Shoulders, Chest) that are used to discover a random dungeon Azerite Armor piece of item level 355/370/385. The prices increase with item level.

Tier I (Item Level 355 Azerite Armor Pieces)

Every cache costs 15 Titan Residuum.

Future Tiers

We also found item level 400 and 415 caches that will be used in Season 2 when Battle of Dazar'alor opens on January 22.

2. Specific Item Level 385 Gear

A specific dungeon Azerite Armor piece costs up to 675 Titan Residuum. These items will vary depending on your Class.

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 seems the new thing over on the WoW reddit is making improved versions of WoW maps using Inkarnate and we're getting a whole lot of great art out of it! A while ago we took a look at a map rework concept by redditor TNR_Gielnorian, it was damn impressive, and he's already done two BfA zones - Drustvar and Vol'dun:
        
      Meanwhile, perhaps inspired by TNR_Gielnorian, we have another redditor, MyWaterDishIsEmpty, having a go at some older maps as well, around the time of Vanilla:
        
        
      And finally, we have something a little different, as Sgtxam took on Un'goro Crater, but incorporated the lore additions from Hearthstone's "Journey to Un'goro" expansion:

      Some really great work from everyone and we definitely hope to see more in the future, as these really add something to the WoW universe and feel of the setting.

      The Crucible of Storms intro questline involving Xal'atath will become available in April, shortly before the raid opens on April 16. 
      Blizzard confirmed that the Xal'atath questline, started by looting Azsharan Medallion from Naga Invasion World Quests, currently isn't active on live servers. The two-boss raid opens on April 16 and the intro questline will be available around that time too. Completing it rewards the Twitching Eyeball toy.
      Check out our Crucible of Storms Raid Preview to learn more about the new raid!

      So, this questline is supposed to be started from a drop called Azsharan Medallion, which drops from the Naga during the Naga Attack! world quest.
      However i’ve been farming it quite long enough to assume that this is either bugged and not dropping, or simply not available yet since the raid isn’t available as of yet.
      Does anyone have any more info on this? Because i’ve been searching οn wowhead for quite sometime and haven’t found anything about it.
      Confirmed – the beginnings of this questline will start appearing closer to the opening of the Crucible of Storms raid in April.
