Everything We Know About the Corrupted Items System So Far

Recommended Posts


A compilation of everything we know about the alternative to Titanforging coming in Patch 8.3.

Note that Patch 8.3 won't be out before next year and the current iteration of the system will be changed in future builds.

The Successor to Warforging and Titanforging

In Visions of N'Zoth and Mythic Season 4, Blizzard is effectively changing Warforging/Titanforging to a system called Corrupted items, which:

  • Come with Benthic-like effects in three tiers (Tier 1/2/3);
  • Come with a +Corruption stat in three tiers (Tier 1/2/3) which activates negative effects based on your Total Corruption accumulated on all gear;


"Benthic" Effects on Corrupted Items

Corrupted items have the following Benthic-like effects on them:


  • Tier 1: Your Avoidance is increased by an amount equal to 3% of your Haste.
  • Tier 2: Your Avoidance is increased by an amount equal to 6% of your Haste.
  • Tier 3: Your Avoidance is increased by an amount equal to 10% of your Haste.

Critical Strike

  • Tier 1: Increases the amount of Critical Strike you gain from all sources by 2%.
  • Tier 2: Increases the amount of Critical Strike you gain from all sources by 3%.
  • Tier 3: Increases the amount of Critical Strike you gain from all sources by 4%.

Critical Damage Bonus

  • Tier 1: Increases the damage you deal with Critical Strikes by 2%.
  • Tier 2: Increases the damage you deal with Critical Strikes by 3%.
  • Tier 3: Increases the damage you deal with Critical Strikes by 4%.

Damage Taken Reduction

  • Tier 1: Reduces your damage taken from periodic effects by 2%.
  • Tier 2: Reduces your damage taken from periodic effects by 4%.
  • Tier 3: Reduces your damage taken from periodic effects by 6%.


  • Tier 1: Increases the amount of Haste you gain from all sources by 2%.
  • Tier 2: Increases the amount of Haste you gain from all sources by 3%.
  • Tier 3: Increases the amount of Haste you gain from all sources by 4%.

Healing Received Increase

  • Tier 1: Increases your healing received from all sources by 2%.
  • Tier 2: Increases your healing received from all sources by 4%.
  • Tier 3: Increases your healing received from all sources by 6%.

Health Regen

  • Tier 1: 20% of total Health regeneration now continues during combat.
  • Tier 2: 30% of total Health regeneration now continues during combat.
  • Tier 3: 40% of total Health regeneration now continues during combat.


  • Tier 1: Increases your Leech by 2%.
  • Tier 2: Increases your Leech by 4%.
  • Tier 3: Increases your Leech by 6%.


  • Tier 1: Increases the amount of Mastery you gain from all sources by 2%.
  • Tier 2: Increases the amount of Mastery you gain from all sources by 3%.
  • Tier 3: Increases the amount of Mastery you gain from all sources by 4%.


  • Tier 1: Increases the amount of Versatility from all sources by 2%.
  • Tier 2: Increases the amount of Versatility from all sources by 3%.
  • Tier 3: Increases the amount of Versatility from all sources by 4%.

Spell Cast

  • Tier 1 & Tier 2: Not Available / Implemented Yet?
  • Tier 3: Your spells and abilities have a chance to grant you a Flash of Clarity, reducing the cooldown of your next 3 spells cast by 2 sec.

Corruption Stat

Based on your Total Corruption accumulated from all gear, there are four side effects that activate at various Corruption Levels:

Corruption Level Side Effect Description
10+ Corruption Grasping Tendrils Grasping Tendrils Taking damage has a chance to slow your movement speed for 5 sec. The magnitude of the slow increases with further Corruption.
20+ Corruption Corrupted Zone Corrupted Zone Your spells and abilities have a chance to create a corrupted zone at your location, dealing Shadow damage to you every 2 sec. The size and damage of the corrupted zone increases with higher Corruption.
40+ Corruption Grand Delusions Grand Delusions Taking damage has a chance to summon a Thing from Beyond, which pursues you for 10 seconds. Its speed increases with further Corruption.
60+ Corruption Creeping Death Creeping Death Damage taken increased by 10% and healing reduced by 10%.

The negative effects are not static and grow in power with increasing Corruption on your gear. For example, Creeping Death Creeping Death at Corruption Level 106 increases your damage taken and reduces your healing taken by 56%, which is a significant increase over 10% at Corruption Level 60.


Higher Corruption increases the number of side effects and their strengths.

Character Appearance

Your character becomes darker and pulses with Void energy based on your Corruption Level.


Azerite Powers

We datamined the Heart of Darkness Heart of Darkness Azerite Power which increases all your secondary stats by 54 while your Corruption Level is 25 or higher.

Corrupted Rings in Patch 8.3

Certain rings from Ny'alotha come with Benthic-like effects and a debuff with side effects.

Corrupted Weapons in Patch 8.3

Certain weapons from Ny'alotha also have Benthic-like effects and a flat +25 Corruption Stat Increase which isn't currently reflected on the tooltip.

Weapon Effect Description

Corruption Resistance

There are various ways to decrease your Corruption Level in Patch 8.3:

Blizzard's Goals with Corrupted Items

Finally, Blizzard shared their thoughts on the new Corrupted Items system in a blue post on October 24.

Blizzard LogoBlizzard (Source)

The most recent PTR build introduced an early version of our Corrupted Items system, and we’d like to highlight a few aspects of how the Corruption system works, and our goals as we iterate on it.

How Corruption Works

Items from Ny’alotha, Mythic Keystone dungeons in Season 4, BfA PvP Season 4, the Heroic Darkshore Warfront, and other new sources of loot that are updated with Season 4 will not be able to Warforge or Titanforge. Items from older content will retain an effective “ceiling” of item level 455, as they do today.

There will be a chance for these new items to be Corrupted by N’Zoth. A Corrupted item has a powerful beneficial property, similar to many of the Benthic effects seen in Nazjatar, but has a new detrimental stat: Corruption. Items can have varying levels of Corruption, with the amount of Corruption present correlating directly with the power of the beneficial upside (for example: an item might give 4% Critical Strike damage and 10 Corruption, or 6% Critical Strike damage and 15 Corruption).

Corruption represents the influence of N’Zoth, which will have negative effects on the wearer. As Corruption increases, a series of drawbacks are activated. You might remember how Corruption worked on the Cho’gall encounter back in Bastion of Twilight – that was a source of inspiration here. The drawbacks currently on the PTR are works-in-progress and not-yet-tuned, and we have changes already implemented in the next PTR build. Our general intent is for low Corruption to activate a minor effect that most people can play around without too much difficulty, medium levels of Corruption to activate a couple more effects that have a higher skill cap (nd may be more situational in where and when someone can handle having them active), and high levels of Corruption to be prohibitive, and virtually never worth it.

Gear that makes your character worse when you equip it doesn’t sound terribly appealing, but fortunately there will be a few ways of dealing with Corruption. The legendary cloak that players will earn from Wrathion early on in Visions of N’Zoth will negate some Corruption, and can be upgraded through entering and completing Horrific Visions to provide even more of a bulwark against Corruption.

Early on, we expect that players might wear one or maybe two pieces of Corrupted gear at a time. Later on, three or four pieces might be manageable. The vast majority of the gear players wear, even later on, will not be Corrupted. And these perks aren’t planned to be slot-restricted, so if there’s a specific power you want, there should never be a concern that your item needs to roll with that affix to be useful.

We also never want an item that would otherwise be an upgrade to feel unusable as a result of being Corrupted, so any Corrupted items can be taken to the Heart Forge and purified without restriction . If you get that trinket you’ve been hoping for, but it’s Corrupted with a beneficial effect you don’t like, or wearing it would push you above a Corruption threshold you’re comfortable with, just purify the item and carry on.

Itemization Philosophy

With itemization, we’re always looking for opportunities to create moments of excitement and choices and options to customize your gameplay to suit your playstyle and the content you choose to play. Warforging created some of this by allowing useful rewards to come from a wide range of content, and ensuring that there was almost always at least the chance of an upgrade from any repeat boss kill or other source of loot. However, as we’ve seen and heard clearly in feedback over the past years, it has also brought significant downsides: Progression feels less rewarding, as players killing a raid boss on a new difficulty for the first time often disenchant much of the loot because they have equal or better Warforged items from lower difficulties or other sources. In addition, the feeling that a given item could have Warforged more and been even better can leave a sense of disappointment at what should have been a clear reward moment. And the sense that these systems are out of players’ direct control makes it harder to work towards a clear goal or state of completion.

The Corruption system isn’t a permanent addition to World of Warcraft, but it is an extension of the theme of N’Zoth’s pervasive and growing influence over Azeroth. As we explore this over the course of the PTR, we’d love to hear feedback about the initial round of powers showing up on items, Corruption drawbacks that may be excessively punitive, and the system as a whole.

Please feel free to reply with your feedback here in this thread. Thank you very much!

I really think corruption is the worst thing they could come up..

I am in total agreement. No way anyone is going to intentionally sabotage groups or run as much corruption as possible becuse gamers like to min max. Cant wait for the arguments. I am better because i did a billion dps for the three second i was alive and all of 10 points of damage total versus the player who did a 100 dps and 2 billion damage who was alive the whole fight.

I personaly like the idea of corruption. Well, in raids and M+ groups there will be new requments as to have ">xy of corruption" and at start, there will be not much corupted items we will wear. But on the other side, with time, the corruption will will be lesser with our resist etc, so we will have more boost to our healing,survilbality,dmg...its a nice add to do before new expansion.

+ Cant wait to see wideos of ppl who would run raid/M+ with as much corruption as possible :) that would add some interesting chalenge to the game and some fun to it as well :) and it would be best, if there were some rewards as well..as to run M10 dung with 20 or 50 corruption in time and get sone Tituls,pets,transmo, etc… so its not just for fun or just because i can...why not :) 

Lore wise….i like it. More better than warforge/titanforge as titanforge from normal i better than normal HC item(mean then same item) and can be even competetive with mythic item (which is much harder to get).

And just saying that its bad...or worst thing ever without any relevant points as to why it is SOOOOOOO BAD, is simply stupid and sortsighned…. and as to what has been said..if you dont like it, or dont want to have much corruption, just clean it in heardforge. But i agree that, its a new element which can get out of hand if there will be no way how to keep a eye on the amount of corruption ppl have. Hope we will be able to see (in LFG system) not only ilvl and seflwriten info, but actual corruption as well, otherwise we are in for same real s**t in pugs. :) 

All in all , i am realy interested how this will work and if it will bring more good and fun than downsides and frustration

"With great power, comes great responsability".

This system is great, imho, because it puts the control over what happens and when squarely back into the hands of players.

The disadvantage, as pointed out by the other people who commented so far, is that most people are stupid. I'll take it 😄

      Visions of N'Zoth is Battle for Azeroth's final major content patch, where we take the battle to N'Zoth himself and visit Ny'alotha. Our hub covers everything you need to know about Patch 8.3 and helps you stay on track if you haven't been playing the game for a while.
      Patch 8.3 Release Date
      Blizzard revealed after BlizzCon that Patch 8.3 will go live in January 2020.
      Game Director Ion Hazzikostas talked about Visions of N'Zoth in the latest Content Preview on October 7. We learned pretty much everything about the new patch, and in the following section, you're going to find its main features:
      Invasions return to the game once more, and this time, they're called Assaults. The Vale of Eternal Blossoms and Uldum will be periodically under assault by N'Zoth's forces, and your goal is to drive them back by completing quests and interacting with various objectives to complete the "emissary." Blizzard uses technology and everything they've learned from Mechagon and Nazjatar in this new iteration of Assaults to ensure dynamic replayability. Assaults are mandatory if you want to enter Horrific Visions.
      Initial Preview of Assaults in Visions of N'Zoth Horrific Visions
      Described as alternate realities where N'Zoth's power is ascendant, these are 1-5 player "scenarios" of Stormwind and Orgrimmar, where you need to complete various objectives for rewards. Horrific Visions revolve around a new mechanic called Sanity, which starts draining as soon as you enter a Horrific Vision. Your goal is to complete as many side objectives as possible and defeating the mini-boss before your Sanity is completely depleted.
      To help you with that, we've got Wrathion with a new Legendary Cloak and a Titanic Research Archive for Horrific Visions with perks that gradually trivialize the feature. You will be also able to buy various items from Wrathion after completing the Black Empire intro questline.
      Wrathion Selling Various Items in Patch 8.3 Ny'alotha, the Waking City
      We will be facing N'Zoth in Ny'alotha, the new twelve-boss raid located in Uldum. It comes with a raid skip quest after you defeat the first boss.
      Check out the sets you will be able to obtain in the new raid:
      Ny'alotha Cloth Sets Preview Ny'alotha Leather Sets Preview Ny'alotha Mail Sets Preview Ny'alotha Plate Sets Preview In the raid, we find out N'Zoth's true size and interesting loot which revolves around Corruption:
      Corrupted Weapons from Ny'alotha, the Waking City We've also covered the continuation of the story in Patch 8.3 and what happens in the raid in the articles below:
      New Forsaken Leadership in Patch 8.3 (Spoilers) Azshara's Bargain and the Key to Defeating N'Zoth (Spoilers) I'lgynoth's Whispers in Patch 8.3 (Analysis) Tyrande Whisperwind VO (Patch 8.3) N'Zoth's in-game model has been updated multiple times and you can check out N'Zoth's VO as well if you're interested what the Old God has to say based on the latest sound files.
      Rewards Updates
      Visions of N'Zoth comes with two new factions, six new Essences, a brand new Mythic Season, a new Seasonal affix, Profession updates, and more that we'll cover soon. On top of that, Essences from Mechagon and Nazjatar will be easier to acquire for alts. You can also add your own sockets to gear which currently does not have any, and more.
      Add Sockets to Your Gear in Patch 8.3 Heart of Azeroth will have a new Minor slot, two Stamina nodes, the maximum level increased to 85 (was 70). Coming in a later PTR update, Blizzard will be adding an infinite progression slot to aid you against N'Zoth's corruption at max level. Heart of Azeroth progress stops at Level 80 and Blizzard decided to get rid of the infinite trait.
      New Factions
      Uldum and Vale of Eternal Blossoms will be under attack by N'Zoth's forces and both zones host new factions. You'll learn more about the Rajani in Pandaria and Uldum Accord resides in Ramkahen.
      Rajani & Uldum Accord Overview New Allied Races: Vulpera & Mechagnomes
      Another pair of Allied Races will become available in Visions of N'Zoth. Alliance players will be able to recruit Mechagnomes, and their Horde counterpart are the Vulpera of Vol'dun.
      Official Mechagnomes & Vulpera Preview Mechagnomes & Vulpera Racials Mechagnomes & Vulpera Unlock Requirements Vulpera Heritage Armor Preview Mechagnome Heritage Armor Preview Mechagnome & Vulpera Dance Animations Vulpera Tidbits: Racial Mount, Shaman Totems, Hunter Pet New Heritage Armor: Goblins & Worgen
      Goblins and Worgen received new models and animations in Patch 8.2.5, but no Heritage Armor, which is added in Patch 8.3.
      Goblin & Worgen Heritage Armor Sets Preview Auction House Overhaul
      The Auction House will be completely revamped. No more lag caused by the system being clogged with single stacks. Stackable items are no longer purchased or sold in stacks; copper is no longer displayed in the Auction House, but used for calculations. If you regularly forget the name of goods, you can create a shopping list, and more!
      Auction House Revamp Preview The Alternative of Titanforging
      The Corrupted Items System is the alternative to Warforging and Titanforging in Patch 8.3. Items that would Warforge/Titanforge will drop with a +Corruption stat which grants side effects at various Corruption Levels.
      Everything We Know About the Corrupted Items System So Far Cleansing Corrupted Items Class Changes
      No patch would be complete without some class changes, and you can find all class changes planned for Visions of N'Zoth here.
      Mistweaver Monk, Holy Paladin, Discipline Priest Changes: Nov 19 Allied Race & Pandaren Death Knights
      We found encrypted sound files of Bolvar and Mograine together with Death Knight creature textures for Allied Races and the Pandaren, and new Death Knight Swords of the Ebon Blade.It was confirmed at BlizzCon that all races will be able to roll Death Knights in Patch 8.3. The new Allied Races Death Knights will have a slightly updated starting experience similar to intros of Allied Races.
      Decrypted Bolvar & Darion Mograine Sound Files Improved Eye Glow for Night Elves and Death Knights Mythic Season 4 Season
      A brand new Season awaits in Visions of N'Zoth and players will be able to earn a title and a mount!
      New Mythic Season 4 Achievements & Rewards Mythic Season 4 Max Item Level Increase Quaking Affix Changes New Mounts
      As usual, with every content update, multiple mounts are coming with placeholder descriptions, sources, and whatnot.
      Alpaca Mounts - Presumably, new reputation mounts available for purchase at Exalted. Chalcedony Cloud Serpent - A new recolor of the existing serpent, possibly tied to the Assault on Vale. N'Zoth Serpent - New Stormsong Valley Rare Mount from the Adherent of the Abyss. Aqir Flying Mount Ahead of the Curve N'Zoth Mount: Uncorrupted Voidwing Mythic N'Zoth Mount (Ny'alotha Allseer), Glory of the Ny'alotha Raider (Wriggling Parasite) Island Expedition Vendors

      New Dubloon Vendors Selling Island Expedition and Invasion Crates 3 New World Bosses
      Blizzard is adding three new world bosses to the game, which drop item level 445 loot.
      New World Bosses in Visions of N'Zoth Miscellaneous
      Other minor things planned for Patch 8.3 include:
      A new PvP event where players can serve N'Zoth, similar to Talon's Vengeance. Heroic difficulty for the Darkshore Warfront. Division of Operation: Mechagon into two wings, each with Heroic and Mythic Keystone difficulties. Darkmoon Arcade, allowing you to play your favorite mini-games at the Darkmoon Faire.

      Shadowlands marks the return of Legendary items, but the acquisition will be less random than what we had back in Legion. Old Legendary items will become transmogable in Patch 9.0, and more.
      In Battle for Azeroth, the only available Legendary item is Wrathion's cloak Ashjra'kamas, Shroud of Resolve introduced in Patch 8.3.
      Legendary Items in Legion
      The concept of Legion Legendaries was interesting. On one hand, you were able to get them from participating in literally everything, so the obsolete portions of the expansion were still relevant.
      On the other, certain Legendaries were more powerful than others. Some were even Best-in-Slot and extremely sought after, but players were not able to get them due to the RNG involved. You've had to get all the less-desired Legendaries first before getting the one you actually wanted.
      Legendaries in Shadowlands
      The Shadowlands expansion is all about player agency. Legendary items will return, but you will have more control over what you get. Specific Legendaries will be crafted through the Tower of the Damned in the Maw, which is one of the game's main features with an everchanging system meant for dynamic replayability.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Great rewards await those you push themselves to their limits to climb the tower. As you progress through Torghast, you’ll gather runes along the way that you can take to a runeforge, where the Runesage will help you forge legendary items. You’ll also be able to learn a bit more about origins of iconic legendary items such Frostmourne or the Helm of Domination. You’ll also have more control over how you craft your legendaries, meaning you’ll be able to determine what slot they go in, what benefits they give you, and maybe even what secondary stats they have.

      Legendary Items Available for Transmog
      In Shadowlands, you will be able to transmog Legendary items, this includes Legion Legendaries as well as weapons that are no longer obtainable (Atiesh). The following items are still up for grabs, so you can start working on getting them since they require a notable time investment.
      Dragonwrath, Tarecgosa's Rest Golad, Twilight of Aspects + Tiriosh, Nightmare of Ages Shadowmourne Sulfuras, Hand of Ragnaros Thori'dal, the Stars' Fury Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker Val'anyr, Hammer of Ancient Kings Warglaive of Azzinoth + Warglaive of Azzinoth

      Ny'alotha raid testing continues on 8.3 PTR Friday with Mythic Prophet Skitra and the Hivemind, followed by another test of Heroic N'Zoth.
      Blizzard (Source)
      On Friday, November 22nd, we will be continuing our raid tests in Ny’alotha, the Waking City.
      Friday, November 22nd
      Prophet Skitra - Mythic Ny’alotha, the Waking City
      13:00 PST (16:00 EST, 22:00 CET)
      The Hivemind - Mythic Ny’alotha, the Waking City
      14:00 PST (17:00 EST, 23:00 CET)
      N’Zoth the Corruptor - Heroic Ny’alotha, the Waking City
      15:00 PST (18:00 EST, 00:00 CET)
      As always, this testing schedule is very fluid and subject to the realities of a test environment. We might have to change the time of a testing session, change the bosses being tested, or cancel a test entirely, due to bugs, server hardware issues, etc. Keep an eye on this forum for the latest information, and thank you in advance for testing and providing feedback.
      Q: How do I get into the raid zone?
      A: In Zuldazar, Boralus, Dalaran, Orgrimmar, or Stormwind, you may speak to Nexus-Lord Donjon Rade III in order to teleport into the raid zone while it is open for testing. (The option to teleport into a zone will not be available when the zone is not open for testing.)
      Q: What character should I use to test the raid?
      A: Whichever you prefer. We will be scaling players’ effective level to 120 for raid testing, and their item level to an appropriate threshold for the encounter(s) being tested.
      Q: How long does testing last?
      A: The primary purpose of testing is to give us the information we need to balance the encounters, evaluate how mechanics are playing out in practice, and identify bugs. Once we’re satisfied that we’ve received that information for a given boss, we’ll be shutting down testing. Usually this takes anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours, but there are no guarantees.

      We have some much welcomed changes to Patch 8.3 as the infinite Heart of Azeroth trait is no more! You will still be able to upgrade the item level on your Heart after Artifact Level 80, but the Corruption Resistance part has been removed. We're also getting a new addition to the Wrathion legendary cloak, with an upgrade that will get increased Corruption Resistance over time.
      You can read more on the legendary cloak here, and the update it's recently gotten here. And you can also always check out all the info on 8.3: Visions of N'zoth in our content hub as well.
      Infinite Trait, Legendary Cloak (source)
      In the Visions of N’Zoth PTR, we’re removing what we called the “infinite” at Heart Level 85. It was intended to allowing for an open-ended increase to Corruption resistance.
      We’ve heard a lot of feedback from players, and we agree, that there’s value in being able to reach a point where you’re essentially done with Artifact Power.
      Increasing the Artifact Level of the Heart after unlocking its final Stamina node will continue to increase the Heart of Azeroth’s item level by 2 per step, but otherwise, major progression will end at Artifact Level 80. To complement this, we’re adding an item in Visions of N’Zoth that players will earn once they’ve upgraded their legendary cloak to its maximum potential via Horrific Visions or from defeating N’Zoth on Normal, Heroic, or Mythic difficulty, or from fully completing a Horrific Vision with at least one Mask active. This item will fortify the cloak, adding additional Corruption Resistance and allowing players to earn the ability to wear more Corrupted armor pieces as time goes by.
      We see this as similar to the way that legendary upgrade items were awarded by Archimonde or Argus the Unmaker at the end of the last two expansions – it should provide players who prefer to not do organized raiding with a way to have an engaging option for pursuing this reward.
