Patch 8.2 Build 30669: Conflict & Strife Changes

Recommended Posts

43601-patch-82-confict-and-strife-pvp-es

Here's an overview of the latest changes to Conflict and Strife, the Essence which allows you to use one PvP talent in PvE.

Earlier today, we highlighted nerfs to the Vision of Perfection Essence. This article covers latest changes to the Conflict and Strife Essence from last week's 8.2 PTR Build 30613.

Conflict and Strife is a new Essence added in Patch 8.2 which allows the use of one predetermined Honor talent in PvE. In other words, you can pick three other Honor talents in PvP. Here's the second pass of balance changes that went live on 8.2 PTR this week.

I don't think anyone will take it, these are for pvp mostly, it's just usable for pve too, but not anywhere near the best option ( it wasn't evan the purpose).

All % health damage is capped at the caster’s maximum health for PvE.  E.g. if you have 230,000 HP, the most that spell would do is 46,000 damage over 5 seconds (assuming “O2%” in the post meant 20%).

      The Darkshore Warfront is available now on Heroic difficulty for Alliance players, meaning it's time to get your piece of gear that is equivalent to Heroic Ny'alotha loot (item level 460).
      Alliance players have access to the Heroic Warfront: The Battle for Darkshore quest in Boralus that rewards 50 7th Legion Service Medals, one item level 460 gear piece, and 750 Artifact Power.
      You can purchase the Sandy Nightsaber mount if you completed the Battle for Darkshore on Heroic difficulty (Heroic: War for the Shore) and have spare  350 7th Legion Service Medals.
      "A rare color for a nightsaber, and rarely seen, they are prized amongst huntresses."

      You can find out more information on all mounts by visiting our 8.3 Mounts Compendium.

      With weekly maintenance on February 25, more Coalescing Visions will start dropping from Assaults and Daily Quests. Blizzard is also removing the (5) inventory cap on Vessel of Horrific Visions, allowing you to cary as many as you like, and up to 4 Torn Pages of "Fear and Flesh" will drop in Horrific Visions on the rank 7-11 Legendary cloak upgrade quests (up from 2).

      We’re working on a set of hotfixes to the game that should streamline upgrading your Legendary cloak via Horrific Visions.
      Coalescing Visions now drop in higher numbers from Assaults and Daily Quests. The Unique (5) inventory cap on Vessel of Horrific Visions has been removed, allowing you to carry as many Vessels as you like. Up to 4 Torn Pages of "Fear and Flesh" quest items can now drop in Horrific Visions from objectives on the rank 7-11 Legendary cloak upgrade quests (was a max of 2). You’ll need to clear more than two sides areas in one run to get more than two pages. The rank 13-15 quests will still drop a max of 2 pages, only from Lost Area objectives. These updates will go into effect with weekly maintenance (Tuesday, February 25 in this region).

      The beta opt-in support page has been recently updated and now would be a good time to opt in for Shadowlands Beta if you haven't done that already.
      Blizzard (Source)
      To put your name into the pool of candidates interested in beta testing for Shadowlands, sign up on the Shadowlands home page using the Beta Opt-In link at the top of the page.

      Signing up for beta does not guarantee you will be chosen to participate, but players who have not signed up to indicate interest cannot be chosen. Customer Support is not able to provide access to beta. Blizzard has released the first encrypted Shadowlands Alpha build earlier this week and added the forthcoming expansion to the Battle.net App Catalog, suggesting that Friends & Family Alpha is really close. Opt in for Shadowlands Beta by visiting the link below!
