Purification Protocol - Heart of Azeroth Essence Spotlight

Recommended Posts

KGdzwes.jpg

In our latest Essence Spotlight, we're looking at Purification Protocol, a MOTHER-themed DPS Essence gated behind Rustbolt Resistance reputation in Patch 8.2.

Purification Protocol

With the corruption in Uldir being eliminated, MOTHER was tasked to research ways to repair Azeroth.

Essence Effects & Sources

Note: We only had the chance to play around with Rank 3 of the Essence on PTR and tooltips may be inaccurate before Patch 8.2 goes live.

Purification Protocol is a DPS Essence gated behind reputation standing with Rustbolt Resistance.

The active power deals Fire damage in an area and stuns Aberrations caught in the beam. Your damage will be increased by 10% for 8 secs when an enemy dies within the beam at Rank 3 and the beam will progressively deal more damage.

The minor power makes your damaging spells and abilities deal Fire damage to enemies within 8 yards. The passive will be upgraded to heal you over time at higher ranks.

      Covenant Callings will reward Valor starting tomorrow, so make sure to do nothing until Patch 9.0.5 goes live in your region!

      Rare Covenant Callings award 35 Valor. Epic Covenant Callings grant 50 Valor.

      One character can hold up to 3 Covenant Callings at a time, which means you should wait until Tuesday (US) or Wednesday (EU) before you complete / turn in any Covenant Callings.

      Blizzard is bringing back Valor in Patch 9.0.5, and the currency is used to upgrade Mythic Dungeon Gear, but what are the upgrade costs?
      The Red Rogue discovered the exact upgrade costs of gear with Valor in Patch 9.0.5 with a few missing slots, but before we go through them, let's talk about how the whole system works.
      Item Ranks and Upgrades
      Every item from dungeons in Patch 9.0.5 is given a rank based on their Item Level, as you can see on the tooltip.

      The items go from Rank 1 (Item Level 184) to Rank 12 (Item Level 220).
      This also applies to Great Vault loot. For example, if you receive Item Level 200 from the weekly chest, it will be of Rank 6/12.

      Base Mythic Gear (Item Level 184) can be upgraded to Item Level 200 without any requirements. All the higher rank upgrades are gated behind various achievements that require you to complete all Shadowlands Season 1 dungeons at Mythic Level 5, 10, and 15 within the time limit.
      In other words, if you want to upgrade Dungeon Gear to Item Level 220, you must complete all 8 Shadowlands Season 1 dungeons at Mythic 15 or above, within the time limit.
      We summarized everything explained above in the following table:
      Item Rank Item Level Requirements 1 184 No Requirements 2 187 No Requirements 3 190 No Requirements 4 194 No Requirements 5 197 No Requirements 6 200 No Requirements 7 203 Shadowlands Keystone Explorer: Season One 8 207 Shadowlands Keystone Explorer: Season One 9 210 Shadowlands Keystone Conqueror: Season One 10 213 Shadowlands Keystone Conqueror: Season One 11 216 Shadowlands Keystone Master: Season One 12 220 Shadowlands Keystone Master: Season One It's important to note that you can't upgrade gear obtained before Patch 9.0.5, which means you must re-farm everything when the patch goes live.
      Valor Caps
      You can have a maximum of 8,750 Valor, but the cap starts at 5,000 and increases by 750 each week. Blizzard also said one character could only hold 1,500 Valor at a time, but that may have been scrapped in the end.
      9.0.5 Week 1 Maximum Cap: 5,000 9.0.5 Week 2 Maximum Cap: 5,750 9.0.5 Week 3 Maximum Cap: 6,500 9.0.5 Week 4 Maximum Cap: 7,250 9.0.5 Week 5 Maximum Cap: 8,750 Weekly Cap: N/A Upgrade Costs
      Now that we know more about item ranks and caps, we are looking at how much Valor you will need for upgrades.
      All the data is provided by The Red Rogue, who also uploaded a handy video about the whole system. You can follow him on YouTube.
      You can upgrade gear by bringing it to Aggressor Zo'dash <Facilitator of Conflict> in Oribos, located in the Enclave of Oribos.
      The upgrade process is straightforward and works just like upgrading PvP or Covenant gear.
      The upgrade costs are different for each slot.
      Off-Hands, Rings, Cloaks, Bracers, Necks cost 250 Valor per upgrade. Shoulders, Gloves, Trinkets, Boots, Belts cost 400 Valor per upgrade. Helms, Chests, Legs cost 475 Valor per upgrade. 1-Handed Agility Weapon costs 500 Valor per upgrade 1-Handed Intellect Weapon costs 750 Valor per upgrade. 2-Handed Weapons cost 1,000 Valor per upgrade. The costs of 1-Handed Strength Weapons and Shields remain unknown for now, but based on PvP Upgrade costs, a 1H Weapon + Shield upgrades together should cost the same amount of Valor per upgrade just like a 2H weapon, so 500 Valor per item per upgrade (needs confirmation).

      It appears that the Weekly Maximum Valor cap has been removed on the 9.0.5 PTR. The patch releases this week on March 9.
      Previously, players could only earn 750 Valor each week, as shown in the screenshot below.

      On Thursday, Blizzard announced in a blue post that they were increasing Valor caps on the 9.0.5 PTR. Most importantly, they also added that there would be a cap of 1,500 on how much Valor a character can hold at a time, which seems to have been scrapped in the end.
      Currently, on the PTR, it looks like Blizzard has entirely removed the Weekly Valor cap in a hotfix (see missing tooltip). The Total Maximum cap has been increased to 8,750 Valor.

      We're still waiting for Blizzard to confirm if the Weekly Cap has been indeed scrapped or if it's just a bug.

      ChromedDragon created a map of Draenor before Garrosh showed up. Check it out!
      On the map, we see how the individual Orc clans completely surrounded the Draenei from almost all directions.

      Tanks are getting a lot of focus in Shadowlands with the increased Mythic+ focus, and it's only going to get more intense with the next pach, so we rounded up some funny stories, depressing interactions, memes and similar. Here's a grab-bag of tanking experiences from many players.
      While all tanks are always needed, things change around the +15 mark, as it's not just DPS that have this particular experience, and if you're one of the least popular/worst specs...
      Then there's this type of terrible, which hasn't really changed that much since, well, forever, as there will always be assholes out there, but there really do seem to be more and more of them these days, especially in Mythic+...

      Source: ChoGallMeta.
      And even if you do well, it's never enough for some people:
      But, sometimes it's quite a different feeling, as however terrible players might be to you, you're still a tank damn it!
      And there are some perfect moments that can only come from tanking, including this one titled "My greatest M+ tanking Achievement...":

      If the group gets really annoying, you can always have the last word too:

      Source: Boars89.
      And finally, if you get REALLY tired of all the DPS not interrupting, the healer selfishly trying to keep those idiots that stand in every mechanic under the sun alive instead of keeping you above 80%, or people dare to question your route, you can always just go with your own kind!
