Horrific Visions Research: All Talents Detailed

Recommended Posts

ydBG3lz.jpg

Today we're looking at the research tree for Horrific Visions coming in Patch 8.3.

Horrific Visions are a new feature of Patch 8.3 where you visit alternate realities of Orgrimmar and Stormwind, where N'Zoth was victorious, and your goal is to complete as many side objectives as possible to earn better rewards before defeating the mini-boss.

Horrific Visions are revolving around a resource calls Sanity, which must be maintained at a reasonable level, because you will be automatically teleported outside of the Horrific Vision when it reaches zero.

To help us with that, we've got a new Legendary Cloak from Wrathion which comes with a protection against Sanity-draining effect (Blacktalon's Experimental Protection Blacktalon's Experimental Protection) and a Titanic Research Archive which gradually trivializes Horrific Visions and allows you to delve deeper into these visions on successive visits.

You will earn Corrupted Mementos in these visions which will be analyzed by MOTHER to strengthen your defenses against his corruption. You can then use them as a resource for talent research.

Titanic Research Tree

The tree was shown briefly during the Visions of N'Zoth Content Preview and has five tiers of research.

I can already hear Wayne June speaking metaphors in the background when that triggers.

What I seemed to miss so far is the reward system of the new "mage tower", that is more chromie-scenario then mage tower imo? I don't see much point in doing so if I just upgrade the legendary cloak for the last phase of the addon? In legion the legendaries were frustrating from the start at least x-(.

Like is there something that stays in this BFA-Addon? My guess is Azerite goes, Essences go (why unlock rank4 essences then?).

Well from the youtube vids and Blizzard commentary we are suppose to get other rewards from doing these but the reward list has not been revealed in full depth.

-_- wow new bullshit incoming

I too hate when they try to give us content. It's a seemingly fun bit of side content that we haven't fully seen yet and for all we've seen, is completely optional.

It's going to help even outside of scenarios. Those scenarios are one of major features of this patch, so I wouldn't really call them optional. And we're getting more time-gating in form of research. Can't say I'm fond of that.

There's a vendor on PTR in the Chamber selling gear for the items you get at the end of your Horrific Vision runs.

I know that. What I mean is more like the artifact appearances. They were for so many classes great. They stick around in BFA and all coming addons probably. They took artifact abilities from us. They will take essences from us completely as far as it appears for me at least (so I still don't understand the rank4 essence visuals).

So since this is the last content chunk probably, I am just wondering why they dont make something similar to the successes  of legion. I think BFA is just a way worse legion so far. By far.

      There's been a lot to talk about for the Shadowlands launch, with the server instabilities, black screen and similar, but this one is a pretty positive consequence of the new expansion coming out.
      It's always a struggle deciding whether to play through the night at an expansion launch, and while it's a great experience you at least partially regret it the next day(s). Well, the appropriately named F33LGOODiNC had none of those regrets, as playing Shadowlands late into the night/morning actually saved their apartment!
      Not only that, but the whole family was coming to that apartment for the holidays so WoW also saved a big family event! It's always great to see personal moments like this from palyers, where WoW actually affects our lives in a specific out-of-game way. Also, to draw you back in to the relatively negative side of reddit and internet posts in general , unsurprisingly the bulk of the comments in the thread are about the Macbook being used to play the game and whether/how that sucks.
      Also, the post already spawned a meme response!

      Simple Tome of Bone-Binding that teaches Hunters how to tame Undead beasts has been found!
      The item has a small chance to drop from mobs in Maldraxxus and the Plaguefall dungeon. Undead players can tame Undead beasts by default as mentioned in the official patch notes.

      Undead beasts include Skeletal and mummy devilsaurs, raptors, eagles, zombie dogs, wind serpents, and hell hounds.

      A neat detail was spotted on live servers. Darion Mograine refers to Death Knight players as "Deathlords" instead of the usual "Champion."
      Reddit user LordDShadowy53 spotted the little detail, and it's a nice one since most of the NPCs in the game constantly call us "Hero" or "Champion," and some players even feel shut off when Jaina calls them like that in a casual conversation.

      Would you like to go back to being a nobody in the game or do you enjoy when everyone calls you Hero/Champion?

      Many players keep asking whether it's currently possible to skip the Maw introductory questline, and the short answer is no. 
      You must complete the same Shadowlands intro questline on all characters before heading to Oribos, which obviously isn't a big problem now that the expansion is just a few hours old, but it may get tiresome for sure in the future.
      While you do not need to follow Shadowlands' linear narrative on your second character, there will still be no dialogue option to skip the Maw intro. Blizzard hasn't yet responded to this, and we do not know if they even plan to make it skippable at some point.

      Legendary items in the Shadowlands are one of the most important parts of your class and spec, and luckily for those of us with Legion flashbacks, they're all craftable and the recipes are (mostly) consistent drops. 
      The crafting process aka Runecarving is pretty simple: you need the base item, crafted via professions, the legendary recipe (received from various sources), a couple of items that set the secondary stats and, the most important part, Soul Ash which you receive in Torghast (but not until tomorrow/Wednesday with the first reset). 
      You can read the full Runecarving guide here for many more details.
      Then we're on to the actual powers themselves, which are split into general powers, which anyone can use, and then the generic class powers, which any spec from the class can use, and finally the spec-specific powers (which are mostly the ones you want, depending on spec). 
       
      All General Legendary Powers 
       
      Class specific powers:
       Death Knight  Mage  Rogue Death Knight Legendary Powers
      Mage Legendary Powers
      Rogue Legendary Powers
       Demon Hunter  Monk  Shaman Demon Hunter Legendary Powers
      Monk Legendary Powers
      Shaman Legendary Powers
       Druid  Paladin  Warlock Druid Legendary Powers
      Paladin Legendary Powers
      Warlock Legendary Powers
       Hunter  Priest  Warrior Hunter Legendary Powers
      Priest Legendary Powers
      Warrior Legendary Powers
