Crucible of Storms Item Tuning

Recommended Posts

Crucible of Storms tuning continues. The raid will open on April 16 and Blizzard increased the effects of certain items via hotfix to the PTR last Friday.

Check out our Crucible of Storms Overview to learn more about the upcoming raid.

When Crucible of Storms was originally added to the 8.1.5 PTR a few weeks ago, we included full drop tables for both Restless Cabal and Uu’nat. We designed Crucible of Storms drops to be somewhat different than items that have been dropping thus far in Uldir and Battle of Dazar’alor – this is a new chapter in the story that takes us to a different, stranger place.

We’ve recently gone through those items and tuned them up to fit closer to expectations, and in most cases, to power up their bonus effects. Here are some examples of changes we’ve made since the items first hit the PTR:

Fa'thuul's Floodguards Fa'thuul's Floodguards

  • Damage increased by ~25%
  • Healing increased by ~25%

Abyssal Speaker's Gauntlets Abyssal Speaker's Gauntlets

  • Shield increased by ~200%

Mindthief's Eldritch Clasp Mindthief's Eldritch Clasp

  • Health restored and consumed increased by ~35%

Grips of Forsaken Sanity Grips of Forsaken Sanity

  • Damage increased by ~25%

Legplates of Unbound Anguish Legplates of Unbound Anguish

  • Damage increased by ~25%

We’ve been making these adjustments via hotfix to the PTR since Friday, and we don’t expect that you’re going to see them via datamining immediately, but know that these are intended changes, and hopefully they’re now quite close to final values.

still trash with only 1 secondary stat

I'm pretty certain the effects are far more superior than yet another secondary stat would be.

Ehhh, not always? 

I'm a prot paladin tank just so you know where I'm coming from.    Just looking at the two plate pieces up there:

1) Abyssal Speaker's Gauntlets - Even with the shield increased by 200%, that shield will last exactly 1 melee hit/ability from a boss.    So the haste gain is pretty much nonexistant, and it is a smallish bubble gained at random in trade for static stats.    IE a terrible deal for me.    For plate dps, it depends on the procrate, but again most current fights have unavoidable aoe and the bubble simply wouldn't last long, it might be marginally good for classes that get a ton out of haste in specific fights where the bubble won't pop easily?   But I can't think of many tbh, especially in mythic.   

2)   Legplates of Unbound Anguish  - This is obviously Not a tanking item, even if we wanted to build for damage our health percentage swings too wildly to make use of these.     For Plate DPS, it might be OK...but it all depends on the procrate, both ways.    If they keep the sacrificed health low (IE don't increase it with the increased damage), then it might work, we'll have to see.
