Recommended Posts

Mythic Season 3 starts in two weeks after Patch 8.2 goes live and with it, Thaumaturge Vashreen will be selling new ilvl 415/430/445 Azerite Armor tokens and individual pieces for Titan Residuum.

Azerite Armor Cost in Patch 8.2

The amount of Titan Residuum received from all sources will increase along with the item cost, but you'll have to pay up to 200K Titan Residuum for a specific armor piece, ilvl 430 tokens are more affordable and cost 9,000 each.

Item Level 415 Azerite Armor Tokens cost 1,725 Titan Residuum each.

Item Level 430 Azerite Armor tokens cost 9,000 Titan Residuum each.

Item Level 445 Azerite Armor tokens cost 47,500 Titan Residuum each.

Item Level 445 Specific Azerite Armor pieces cost 200,000 Titan Residuum each.

Dungeon Loot & Difficulty

Dungeon difficulty will be increased along with rewards, similar to what Blizzard did when Mythic Season 2 started and in Rise of Azshara:

  • Normal dungeons reward ilvl 370 gear.
  • Heroic dungeons reward ilvl 385 gear.
  • Mythic dungeons reward ivl 400 gear.

Season 3 Affix

With beginning of Season 3, we have a new Nazjatar-themed affix called Beguiling and Reaping retiring for good. You can find more details about how Beguiling works here.

I mean this is great for returning players!
I am psyched to replace all my "hard-earned" "endgame" raiding gear in a couple dungeon runs.
I have a question though:

I remember last release being a bit more specific about "normal dungeon drops being increased withOUT increase in difficulty.
While I believe it should be more or less obvious this almost has to remain the case, would you care to specify?

Funny how Blizzard is going to render all of the raiding gear useless and therefore raiding the current raids practically irrelevant *filtered* usually they don't do that until expacs, huge own on all of the players who invested their time in raiding until now

There's a problem here with "I only raid for the gear". Some people raid because they actually have fun with the raid, not because of the gear. It makes me think of people that play a game for a year, then when it gets a price drop or goes free they go "well do I get a refund on the game then??"

There's definitely a problem with raids becoming completely irrelevant before the end of an xpac, but it's not because you're replacing gear that you worked towards, but rather that there isn't a reason to do the raids AFTER new ones come out. It's still fun to raid them when they're the current raids.

Not looking forward to the long grind to replace 6 pieces of Azerite Gear at that steep of a cost.  

im pretty sure its meant for a once-and-done 'bis' type purchase if you want to blow that kind of cash on it.

the ones that grind everything all day yes, its a grind, but its not designed for those players alone, necessarily.  

Better piece, higher cost.

Better piece, higher cost.  

1.2M in TR is a steep grind for a decent Tank and DPS set the problem with the random piece selection is (as a leather wearer) that most of the traits on several of those pieces are straight up garbage and do not stack even if they are the only traits you can pick from the rings.  You really don't get an adequate return amount from 405 or 415 pieces from scrapping to accommodate to build up for the next tier either.  To grind out BiS is to fight the RNG gods constantly in the new and or current released Raid and hope you do get those desired pieces instead of AP.   But for me it means keeping my current set up as DPS set longer because the risk to gamble for the cheaper package is not worth it when there is a higher chance to get the crappy version of piece than there is getting one that actually works with what you currently have.

 

Use to and in some of the other MMO's I've played it goes along the lines:

Look up gear needed to enjoy Endgame content---->Grind Currency for Gear---->Buy from Vendor------>Go and enjoy Endgame content

But in WoW it's more:

Look up gear needed to enjoy Endgame content--->Find Multiple Variations of Several Pieces---->Some are earned through Currency (splits) from Mythic Dungeons, World Quests, Warfronts, Raids, and Weekly Events---->(splits again)---Chance to either Warforge or Titanforge with slim chance of Gem Socket and has slight chance to improve what you already have and the chance to receive the exact same thing you already own but not an upgrade.

The typical standard MMO is a steady rate where the player has a straight forward plan on how to obtain gear.  With WoW on the other hand you can't necessary expect to have a straight forward path when that path diverges constantly.  BiS becomes more blurred and unobtainable running the same content for 'the chance' for something to improve your overall gameplay.

 

I get and respect what you are relaying the conundrum of the problem is that to obtain an increase in my main stat (Agility) and to maintain a constant DPS I am forced to hard look into multiple avenues in the gambling sector for upgrades.  And as a not hard core player it just leaves me to ponder on the grind even more.

Thats what cost does.  makes only the ones who truly want to pay the price pay it.  Its not worth it to you or is at least questionable, so dont do it. its still an option, as opposed to just grinding dungeons for your piece.  They cant titanforge/warforge so once you get it its done.

You really don't get an adequate return amount from 405 or 415 pieces from scrapping to accommodate to build up for the next tier either.  To grind out BiS is to fight the RNG gods constantly in the new and or current released Raid and hope you do get those desired pieces instead of AP.   But for me it means keeping my current set up as DPS set longer because the risk to gamble for the cheaper package is not worth it when there is a higher chance to get the crappy version of piece than there is getting one that actually works with what you currently have.

My thoughts exactly, above.

Use to and in some of the other MMO's I've played it goes along the lines:

But in WoW it's more:

You can still enjoy endgame content without grinding for every BIS super-expensive piece, or even have BIS any gear.  Unless youre talking Mythic WF competitions or MDI stuff, in which case youre grinding anyway.  Go for it as much as you WANT to go for it.  

The typical standard MMO is a steady rate where the player has a straight forward plan on how to obtain gear.  With WoW on the other hand you can't necessary expect to have a straight forward path when that path diverges constantly.  BiS becomes more blurred and unobtainable running the same content for 'the chance' for something to improve your overall gameplay.  

BIS is blurred alright, by whatever youre doing.  Some traits are AOE, some better single target or with different spec talent builds.  Diablo is the same way.  Cant comment on other games other than if "once i get X piece im done" seems pretty much the end of content other than fun-runs.  

 

I get and respect what you are relaying the conundrum of the problem is that to obtain an increase in my main stat (Agility) and to maintain a constant DPS I am forced to hard look into multiple avenues in the gambling sector for upgrades.  And as a not hard core player it just leaves me to ponder on the grind even more.

 This has been true since Titanforging came about, and is only marginally moreso now.  you dont HAVE to buy any pieces.  Ive literally bought one this expac.  and it wasnt the most expensive 'you pick it' option either.  

If you want the best, you pay for it.  thats pretty standard in most life things.  Warcraft has been the same for a solid expansion now as well.  Whether youre grinding for 'currency' to buy something or waiting on just a drop, then a roll win for that drop (a la entire game prior to currencies) its really the same end, just different means.

I hear you about not wanting to risk the buy of a lower item RNG one...  but then just dont risk it and scrimp and save for the big one later.  Or dont buy any.  Lots of options.

I am trying to find out if there is no titun residium given for ilv 385 azerite gear. I don't seem to be getting any and wanted to make sure this is not a glitch or bug.

It's likely intended, given how easy it is to obtain 385 gear now.

      In our latest post, we take a closer look at what it takes to wear 2 legendaries at the same time in Eternity's End, all options, and the limitations of the system.
      Requirements to Unlock Wearing 2 Legendaries in Patch 9.2
      In Patch 9.2, players can unlock the ability to wear 2 legendaries simultaneously. This is gated behind a reputation farm and you'll have to reach Revered with The Enlightened faction to do so.
      You have two options when it comes to wearing 2 legendaries at once. You can either buy a legendary belt with the power or memory from The Enlightened quartermaster and add it to any legendary item. The belt is more expensive because it's an item and you don't need a base item here.
      Memory of Unity
      Memory of Unity is account-wide and allows you to craft a new Legendary item and imbue it with the power of your Covenant Legendary introduced in Patch 9.1. If your Best-in-Slot legendary takes up the waist slot, you want to craft a new legendary with the Unity power that takes up a different slot. The memory costs 500 Cosmic Flux.

      The Unity legendary power effect will swap will automatically swap with your chosen Covenant.
      Belt of Unity
      Alternatively, you can buy an item level 265 belt at Revered with The Enlightened, which comes with the new Unity legendary power effect by default. The item costs 2,500 Cosmic Flux because it's a ready-made legendary and you don't need base items or anything to craft it.

      What's Cosmic Flux?
      Cosmic Flux is a new currency in Patch 9.2 used to buy items off Enlightened brokers. It's rewarded from doing Season 3 content and drops from raid bosses, PvP, Mythic+, Torghast, and Zereth Mortis activities. 
      Limitations of the System
      Your second Legendary Power must always be Unity. You can’t pick both Legendary Powers.

      It's a great week in raiding, as Fury is back on top after a LONG time in Shadowlands (possibly the first time in the Sanctum as well), as the rage is unleashed in the high percentiles! There's also plenty of movement at the top in the generalist bracket and Heroic as well.
      Mythic DPS Rankings
      95th Percentile
      We not only see Fury in its rightful and fully deserved spot this week and, in fact, ALL weeks in ALL expansion (can you tell I'm a Fury main? Naaaah), but we also have Balance overtake Windwalker for a major top 3 change-up. Moving on to the top 5 and 10 we have yet another Rogue coup, as Outlaw takes down Subtlety for the No.5 spot, while Havoc is just keeping its head down in 6th as the Rogues battle it out. Arms, Elemental and Frost take a hint from Havoc and stay stable, rounding out the top 10, as all three Mages cluster together. Meanwhile the bottom of the top percentiles stays unchanged, as the last 6 specs are in the same order as we left them a week ago.

      95th percentile Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      All Percentiles
      While things are calmer in the generalist bracket, we still see movement in the top 3, as Fury has moved up here as well, taking Subtlety down, and Outlaw also took the opportunity to surpass its fellow Rogue, much like in the top percentiles. Balance and Windwalker move past Arms, as Elemental and Demonology close out the top 10.

      All percentiles Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
       
      Heroic DPS Rankings
      Even Heroic sees some movement in the top 3, this time with an internal Mage affair, as Fire takes Arcane's spot, and Shadow and Arms also take the opportunity to move past the purple Mage spec, which drops into 6th. Unlike in Mythic where it's had a really bad week, Subtlety actually moves up in Heroic, taking 7th away from Demonology, who also gets got by Havoc and lands at the end of the top 10.

      All percentiles Heroic data by Warcraft Logs.
       
      As always, if you want even more info on a spec, you can check out our class guides here, for a DPS tier list you can go here, or for even more data, head on over to Warcraft Logs.

      Legendary items in Patch 9.2 can be upgraded to Rank 7. In this post, we're looking at the upgrade requirements and costs.
      In Patch 9.2, you can upgrade Legendary items to Rank 7 (item level 291). You have two options when it comes to upgrading legendaries to Rank 7 in Patch 9.2.
      Option #1: You'll upgrade a Rank 4 to Rank 7 using Vestige of the Eternal. Option #2: You'll upgrade a Rank 5 or Rank 6 legendary with a Rank 7 base item directly at the Runecarver to Rank 7. Tome of the Eternal
      Blizzard added Tome of the Eternal in Patch 9.2. The item teaches you how to craft Vestige of the Eternal, a powerful Optional Reagent that increases the item level of a legendary base item by the equivalent of 3 ranks.
      To purchase Tome of the Eternal from the quartermaster, you must reach Honored with The Enlightened.
      Vestige of the Eternal
      Vestige of the Eternal requires Zereth Mortis profession materials and a new item called Progenitor Essentia.
      Vestige of the Eternal can be used to upgrade a Rank 4 base item to Rank 7.
      Rank 5 and Rank 6 Legendaries must be upgraded directly at the Runecarver using a Rank 7 Base Item. To complete the upgrade you will need 2,000 Cosmic Flux.
      Cosmic Flux
      Cosmic Flux is a new 9.2 currency, similar to Echoes of Ny'alotha from Battle for Azeroth. The currency can be obtained from doing Patch 9.2 content, meaning killing raid bosses, clearing Mythic dungeons, opening the Great Vault, doing PvP, and completing Zereth Mortis content.
      Limitations
      It's worth noting that the new legendary belt item sold by The Enlightened vendor cannot be upgraded and you must use the memory on a new base item if you'd like to upgrade your "Unity" legendary.

      Gluttonous Gardbrace are new Plate Shoulders that drop from Skolex in Sepulcher of the First Ones. The item has an effect that makes you eat food faster.
      Our preview of interesting loot from the 9.2 raid continues today with Gluttonous Gardbrace. The item comes with the Insatiable Ravening on-equip effect.
      Insatiable Ravening - You eat food faster. Much faster. But how much is "much faster"? Based on datamining, it looks like the time you spend eating is reduced by 50% while you wear Gluttonous Gardbrace.
