The Crucible of Flame - Heart of Azeroth Essence Spotlight

Recommended Posts

37DnK52.jpg

The Crucible of Flame is the first Essence that you get in Patch 8.2 right after unlocking the Heart Forge.

Note: Some tooltips may be slightly inaccurate. The Crucible of Flame Essence Rank 1 is obtained right after you unlock the Heart Forge in Rise of Azshara. The quest line will also bump your Heart of Azeroth Heart of Azeroth to level 35 if it's lower than that. Further ranks are gated behind your Heart of Azeroth level. Major power of the Essence deals damage to enemies or heals allies and the maximum amount of charges increases to 2 at Rank 3. The minor power is a passive which deals damage to enemies and heals allies over 10 sec.

      Valor Points are coming this week and are supposed to save/improve Mythic+ gearing but, as our own Seliathan goes into in-depth, it's not quite a good enough improvement on the already pretty messy Mythic+ loot system.
      Seliathan is an Icy Veins Rogue class guide writer, completed several World First Mythic+ clears, including the +20, and he wrote a big piece for Raider.IO, analyzing the M+ gear and the way the Valor Point system will affect it, the flaws in both, and how to improve them. And while Blizzard might potentially be removing the 1500 cap on Valor, exactly as the article suggests, there are many more problems and potential solutions presented there. He goes over many topics, including how M+ gearing compares to PvP and raiding, what the actual purpose of M+ is and where it fits in the overall gearing scheme, the lack of other rewards in M+, the need for higher Keystone Master-type achievement tiers and a lot more. Here are some highlights, but head straight on to the full (and huge) analysis post on Raider.IO if you want all the details:
      There's a LOT more to read over in the full article on Raider.IO, with many excellent points and insights into Mythic+ and how it could be improved, so make sure to read the whole thing!

      Covenant Callings will reward Valor starting tomorrow, so make sure to save them until Patch 9.0.5 goes live in your region!

      Rare Covenant Callings in Patch 9.0.5 award 35 Valor. Epic Covenant Callings grant you 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 for extra Valor.

      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.
