Infinite HoA Trait Removed from 8.3, New Legendary Cloak Addition

Recommended Posts

39016-heart-of-azeroth-guide-for-battle-

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.

    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.

    ok or they could just do it like we have in 8.2.5 and just... cap out the artifact level. I may be biased because I like getting gold instead of AP but isn't removing the infinite trait for an infinitely scaling heart anyways just... basically the same thing?

    Well the point is item levels aren't remotely as valuable to 99.99% of people so they won't feel the need to chase it. The crazy people/WF raider might still have to though.

    I think that's my main problem. It's pretty dead for 99% of people. I'd honestly prefer we just kept a cap (even a raised one) and got gold like we currently do past it. instead of a whole 2 iLvls on one piece of gear, which barely grants anything anyways

    For WF raiders, they will have already cleared the content likely before they even hit 80 on their necks or very shortly after.. so even for them it’s mostly irrelevant..

    Heart is one thing, but how long it's going to take for legendary cloak to reach maximum? Anyway, less grind is always welcome.

    Eh they've merely changed what we're grinding from the current system to an older new system.

    I'm in two minds here, on one side, as I've given up raiding this expac, it means I can still get the upgrade, which is nice. However since someone who does raid can get it from Nzoth, I'll still be behind them for pushing M+. Thankfully they are increasing the ilvl gains from M+ to scale to +15 and thus mythic level in the weekly chest, but still 10 below for the dungeon.

        It's been a while since we last heard of Rextroy, and that's because he had to farm 90,000 Echoes of Ny'alotha to obtain enough Infinite Stars to gather 675 Corruption (before Resistance) and one-shot enemies in Arenas.
        In the latest video, Rextroy explains how powerful 27 Infinite Stars can be in Arenas and why Protection Paladin is a really good choice for this method since the class has so many immunities, as the 495% damage taken increase makes you extremely squishy.
        This Infinite Stars procs may not one-shot players with some sort of defensives up, but it should still deal damage equal to 80-90% of their health. Pets add an additional layer of RNG because Infinite Stars procs at random targets.
        A few words from the man himself:
        Now, here's Rextroy with 675 Corruption, 495% increased damage taken and 27x Infinite Stars in action!

        Following the tragic passing of Reckful, thousands of players paid tribute to the streamer in-game on almost all servers and Redditor Alyvidy shared a video of the Stormwind Cathedral filled with Alliance and Horde players and captured how genuine and caring the WoW community is.

        With a few months of BfA still left, we compiled a list of things to do in the game before they get removed or changed when Shadowlands hits. Read on for details.
        1. Ahead of the Curve: N'Zoth the Corruptor
        Assemble a group and defeat N'Zoth on Heroic difficulty. Uncorrupted Voidwing will become unobtainable when Shadowlands goes live.
        2. Mythic Season 4 Title & Mount
        If you want to get the Awakened Mindborer, you must earn the Battle for Azeroth Keystone Master: Season Four before the release of Shadowlands. To do this, simply, complete all Battle for Azeroth Season 4 dungeons at Mythic Level 15 or higher, within the time limit.
        If you can't get the mount, you can at least try getting the Awakened title that is earned by completing all Battle for Azeroth Season 4 dungeons at Mythic Level 10 or higher, within the time limit (Battle for Azeroth Keystone Conqueror: Season Four).
        3. Phenomenal Cosmic Power Achievement
        Certain Essences tied to Mythic Season 4 will become unattainable when the Season ends, making it impossible to earn the Phenomenal Cosmic Power and the Azeroth's Champion title.
        4. Save Up 5 Million Gold for the Mighty Caravan Brutosaur
        Blizzard will be removing the Mighty Caravan Brutosaur in Shadowlands from the vendor, so now would be the ideal time to start making some serious gold when you want the mount. Chances are you will not be able to get it from the Black Market Auction House when it becomes even rarer to get.
        (Source)
        Hello! Yes. About that …
        Like all dinosaurs, the Mighty Caravan Brutosaur's days are numbered. I can confirm that when Shadowlands goes live, the shady vendors Talutu and Tricky Nick will cease selling it. Their other offerings – the Lost Platysaur pet and the Palehide Direhorn mount, will remain available for purchase.
        We will make sure that the unforgettable Brutosaur mount is added to the lists of possible items that are sold in the Black Market Auction Houses. And of course, this new Achievement "Conspicuous Consumption" is a Feat of Strength, so as such things go, it's not actually very conspicuous.
        The Mighty Caravan Brutosaur comes with an Auctioneer and a premium price tag! Be ready to spend up to 5,000,000 Gold to get it!

        5. Mythic Jaina Mount
        The drop chance of Glacial Tidestorm will drastically decrease and the mount will become rare once Shadowlands is out.

        As a result, Blizzard hotfixed Mythic Jaina so that she drops 2 Glacial Tidestorm mounts on live servers on February 14.
        (Source)
        Dungeons and Raids
        Battle of Dazar' alor Lady Jaina Proudmoore now drops 2 Glacial Tidestorm mounts (was 1) when defeated on Mythic difficulty. Ny' alotha, the Waking City N'Zoth the Corruptor now drops 2 Ny'alotha Allseer mounts (was 1) when defeated on Mythic difficulty. With these mounts becoming quite rare once Shadowlands comes out, taking 20 weeks or more for a full Mythic raid group to get the mounts felt excessive. 6. Mythic N'Zoth Mount
        The same applies to Ny'alotha Allseer that drops from N'Zoth on Mythic difficulty on live servers. You can get two per run, and the drop chance will decrease when the new expansion is live.

        7. Mythic Season 4 Elite PvP Armor Sets
        The Elite Notorious Gladiator's Armor appearances are gated behind reaching various ranks in the ongoing PvP Season. They are going away with the end of PvP Season 4. There are four sets in total (Cloth, Leather, Mail, and Plate).

        8. Level Up a Demon Hunter & Death Knight
        Both Demon Hunters and Death Knights start at level 10 in Shadowlands, instead of 98 and 55 respectively, so it would be a good idea to level them up right now instead of waiting.
        9. Battle for Azeroth PvP Achievements
        The Conqueror of Azeroth and Servant of N'Zoth achievements will also be harder to get when there are fewer players playing BfA content in Shadowlands, as pointed out by Redditor cybishop3.
        10. Mythic+ Mounts
        Mounts like Sharkbait's Favorite Crackers from Freehold, Mummified Raptor Skull from King's Rest, and Underrot Crawg Harness from the Underrot will be harder to get, because you won't be able to farm them by doing low keystone runs and your chances will be reduced to one per week. Thanks gnotagnelfbutagnome for adding this.
        A list of things to do before the new expansion is out!

        Blizzard added a Feat of Strength achievement for the Reins of the Mighty Caravan Brutosaur in this week's Patch 8.3 build and confirmed that the mount will no longer be purchasable from vendors when Shadowlands goes live.
        Until then, you will still be able to buy the mount for 5,000,000 Gold from the vendors. Lost Platysaur and Palehide Direhorn will still be available when the new expansion goes live from vendors, but Reins of the Mighty Caravan Brutosaur will be added to the list of possible items sold in the Black Market Auction Houses in Shadowlands.
