Recommended Posts

Here's a preview of Ashjra'kamas, Shroud of Resolve Ashjra'kamas, Shroud of Resolve (Wrathion's legendary cloak) that will help you inside Horrific Visions and we also get more details on Corrupted Items, mainly on how they work, examples of their on-use effects, how they alter your character's appearance, and more.

The Old God N’Zoth has been unleashed from his titanwrought prison, and an ancient corruption has taken root across Azeroth. Heroes of the Horde and Alliance will need to fight back the darkness by donning a new legendary cloak and by wielding corruption-forged weapons against the armies of the Black Empire. 

HEROES WEAR CAPES

Protecting your mind against N’Zoth requires an object of pure corruption—and Deathwing’s son Wrathion knows just where to find one. Work with the masterful Black Dragonflight to craft and upgrade Ashjra’kamas, Shroud of Resolve, a legendary cloak with the power to save your sanity and stave off the Old God’s influence. 

Wearing this cloak will help players venture deeper into N’Zoth’s Horrific Visions, earn greater rewards, and unlock more of the mysteries behind the Old God’s power. This cloak may also come in handy when you face off against N’Zoth himself in the upcoming raid. 

RISE THROUGH THE RANKS

Ashjra’kamas starts at rank 1 at item level 470 and with a small amount of Corruption Resistance, with subsequent ranks increasing its power and adding other unique effects. When you equip the cloak, you’ll immediately reduce Sanity loss while in Horrific Visions. At rank 6, the cloak will gain an on-use spell effect that dispels any effects of N’Zoth’s Corruption, and provides the wearer with immunity to any further Corruption effects for six seconds (3 minute cooldown). At rank 12, the cloak will also gain a Draconic Empowerment passive, causing your spells and abilities to have a chance to massively increase your primary stat.

Once your Ashjra'kamas, Shroud of Resolve reaches rank 15, you can begin to acquire Malefic Cores, which increase your Corruption Resistance by 3, to a maximum of 125. You can acquire one Malefic Core per week across all sources, including defeating N’Zoth in Ny’alotha on Normal, Heroic, or Mythic difficulty or by completing all objectives within a Horrific Vision.

Legendary Cloak Purification Transformation

As you purify your cloak of corruption, its appearance will morph to a pristine titan-esque aesthetic. 

Max-level players who have unlocked the Heart Forge will be able to accept a new quest, either “An Unwelcome Advisor” (Alliance) or “Return of the Black Prince” (Horde) to begin the storyline which grants this new legendary cloak.

HARNESS THE POWER OF THE VOID 

Turn N’Zoth’s dark power against him by seeking out weapons and armor tainted with Corruption, a new addition to items that provides powerful boons—with potentially deadly consequences. Seek out measures to counter these effects, or embrace its power and learn to endure the madness. 

Cursed by N’Zoth, corrupted items offer truly exceptional power—for a price. As you don more corrupted gear, you’ll find your spells will do more damage, or your heals will be more potent—but the Corruption will begin to affect you in increasingly perilous ways. At low Corruption levels, you may be slowed periodically when taking damage—while at higher corruption levels, evil forces from the Void may come for you at any moment. 

Deciding how much Corruption to take on is a delicate balancing act, but Corruption can be mitigated with your new legendary cloak and all new Essences. By equipping this gear, you can negate some of the corruption and reap the benefits of N’Zoth’s might with fewer downsides.

Corruption levels

Unmitigated corruption will seep from your character.

Corruption replaces Warforged and Titanforged properties on gear, with Corruption values and side effects varying on each piece, even between two of the same item. 

TIP: You can choose to cleanse your items of Corruption through Titanic Purification, which will cost you some Corrupted Mementos (rewarded for slaying enemies in new Horrific Visions instances). However, doing so will cause your item to lose the positive equip effect as well. 

Here are a few Corrupted effects that can appear on player equipment.

INEFFABLE TRUTH

Your Spells and Abilities have a chance to show you the Ineffable Truth, increasing the rate your cooldowns recover by 50% for 10 seconds.

TWILIGHT DEVASTATION

Your attacks have a chance to trigger a beam of Twilight Devastation, dealing damage equal to 5% of your health to all enemies in front to you.

AN EYE FOR AN EYE

Your equipment can be further enhanced with a Gouged Eye of N’Zoth, allowing you to add a Prismatic Socket to one piece of gear. This consumable can be purchased from Wrathion in the Chamber of Heart with Corrupted Mementos.

PURIFY YOUR WORLD

Get ready to secure your corrupted gear and obtain your legendary cloak once the Visions of N’Zoth content update goes live on January 14.

I must say I'm quite hyped about this new mechanic of Corrupted Gear. It'll shake the meta quite a bit.

Oh goodie yet another dam artifact/legendary Item we will spend months grinding power for only to have it became obsolete and thrown away mere days into the next expansion or next raid teir 😕 We just recently starting getting a handle on essences with the heart of Azeroth thing and now we will be doing double duty with a cape just to survive a single raid. All I am saying is if there going to make us bust our *filtered* to obtain somthing "legendary" atleast let it be useful longer then a dam month before being replaced with quest greens.

True, this time.......but Blizzard has a habbit of making its new gear and gimmicks obsolete shortly after there release almost making the effort to obtain/empower them not worth the time investment, we'll have to see if this one will be different.

Previous expansions gear should be repleced by the new one, you can level almost to max level without replacing items usually if you had good gear from the previous one. Do you want previous expansion stuff to beat max level new expansion gear or what?

Well no not the gear and stuff, I was more focused on them coming up with a new interesting game mechanic, for example the artifact weapons in legion were a cool idea, yet on a whim throw it out and do something else, like when you reach 100 and go to legion now you still have to go do the quest to obtain your artifact weapon yet it is crap now with no special properties and it no longer scales to your level up to 110 making it vendor trash (which you cant even do because its unsellable and cant be thrown away) and legion has 0 weapon drops in it so your ether forced to buy the 110 upgrade for heirlooms or go through the whole portion of content with a sub par weapon. I am just afraid there going to do the same thing with the Heart of Azeroth, "ya know that new cool amulet you spent the better part of a year powering up?" garbage now here is a cape to use instead until we get bored with this idea and throw it away too. I am not saying there ideas have to last forever I just feel they change there minds too fast and don't give people enough time to really enjoy them before throwing something else in to the mix they have to learn,

You can level the artifact by placing relics into it the same way you did in legion so the weapons itemlevel increses the exact same way as it did during legion. The legendary cloak doesn't replace the neck at all, the neck is still more important. And they already said taht they wont take away the necks power when the expansion comes , it just won't get any stronger at that point.

Your still kind of missing the point of my argument. If I'm going to spend a whole expansion grinding up power for a new game mechanic or legendary that is important to the story I would expect to keep that power moving forward or at least have it stay relevant other wise owning it at all was a waste of time, For example if I for one knew that the artifacts were going to be used at the end of the expansion and cast aside would not have spent as much time gathering power to max it out and focused on other content I knew was going to carry further in the future. In any cast I was glad to hear in the next patch we can transmog any legendaries we collected (something we have been asking for since Cataclysm) better late then never I suppose.

You can transmog the artifacts too so we carried it further, or thats fine for legendaries but not for  artacts or what?

no your right i just sort of lumped the artifacts in with legendaries as they were unique and iconic symbols of lore and what not, it dont really matter I guess I was just bitter against the time invested grinds they have put us through the last few expansions, seems we do more earn x rep/power/tokens to unlock x reward you should have had from the start and will only enjoy a short while before it is no longer relevant and replaced by a new expansion long grind fest. I could just be slow but for me doing dailies to earn rep for flying or other stuff takes almost the whole day to where I am too burned out to play any more that day to even have fun with the stuff I am working toward. I want to love the game the way I did when I started back in Wrath of the Lich King and its just becoming harder to stay interested in it when it feels more like a job then a game.

      Lunar Festival is back and we have a new quest line this year that lets you transmogrify your flower crowns all-year-round.
      Lunar Festival Updates in 2020
      Lunar Preservation is a new quest which requires you to perform the Rite of the Moon at the moonwells in Ashenvale, Felwood, Feralas, Moonglade, Stonetalon Mountains, Duskwood, and Mount Hyjal, without letting the Blessing of the Moon expire. If you manage to bless the Staff of Moonflowers and transform it into Blessed Staff of Moonflowers, the druid will enchant your flower crowns so they never die, and you can transmogrify them year-round!
      Crown of Boundless Courage Crown of Eternal Memorial Crown of Everlasting Fortune Crown of Infinite Prosperity First, complete the Lunar Rocket introduction quest to teleport to Moonglade. Then, talk to Myrael Lunarbloom at 53, 36 in Moonglade to pick up the quest. Go to the first moonwell at 48, 33 and click the action bar to charge your Staff of Moonflowers. You will receive a 60-minute buff (Blessing of the Moon) and must visit the following moonwells before it expires:
      Ashenvale: 54, 46 and 60, 73 Duskwood: 49, 33 Felwood: 44, 28 Feralas: 60, 46 Hyjal: 61, 25 Note that you must first complete Magni's (A Fresh Trauma) quest line in Hyjal before charging up your staff, otherwise, it won't work. We're not sure if this is intended, but it's best to leave it here before it gets hotfixed. Moonglade: 48, 33 Stonetalon Mountains: 42, 18 Recommended Path: Moonglade > Felwood > Hyjal > Ashenvale > Stonetalon Mountains > Feralas > Duskwood 
      The timer on the buff will refresh to 60 minutes every time you charge up the staff, leaving you with plenty of time to finish the quest.

      After finishing the quest, use your Lunar Festival Invitation to head back to Moonglade tu turn in the quest. 
      The new quest is not required for To Honor One's Elders. Check out our Lunar Festival guide for more details about the event!
      Blizzard (Source)
      Every year the druids of Moonglade hold a celebration of their city’s great triumph over an ancient evil. During the Lunar Festival, citizens of Azeroth have the opportunity to honor their elders by celebrating their sage wisdom, sharing in magnificent feasts…and of course, lighting fireworks.
      The celebration has begun in Moonglade, and your Lunar Festival Invitation is waiting. Join in the fun by dressing up in your Lunar Festival finery, launching fireworks, and paying homage to the Elders throughout Azeroth.
      When: January 24 – February 7
      Where: Moonglade, with camps in Ironforge, Stormwind, Darnassus, Thunder Bluff, Orgrimmar, and the Undercity*
      Currency: Coin of Ancestry
      Activities
      The Lunar Festival is a time of celebration for the peoples of Azeroth. At the beginning of each year, elders of generations past manifest around the world to impart their wisdom upon all who listen. Should you encounter these venerable spirits in your travels and take the time to heed their words, they may even pass along tokens of their gratitude—Coins of Ancestry, the lessons of a past age in physical form. Gather enough Coins of Ancestry and the Cenarion Circle will open their stores of celebratory garb, fireworks, trinkets, and recipes!
      The Cenarion Circle has good cause to celebrate, for the Lunar Festival marks the return of many Ancients that fell in battles past: Goldrinn, Malorne, Aviana, and Cenarius himself. But this celebration is darkened by the eternal torment of one of their own—Omen, a wolf Ancient blessed by the moon goddess Elune, has risen from the depths of Moonglade’s lake. Though Omen was once as noble and proud as any Ancient, he was driven mad by the Burning Legion’s tainted magics during the War of the Ancients. Omen’s immortality means that he is forever cursed to return in his maddened state at the advent of each new year—and this year, he has grown further in power.  Heroes level 20 and above must make haste to ease this tormented Ancient’s suffering, in the hopes that perhaps next year he will return with a clearer mind.
      SEASONAL BOSS: OMEN RETURNS!
      The great wolf Omen was once a hero of this world. An embodiment of strength and fortune, Omen fought beside the heroes of the War of the Ancients until he succumbed to demonic magics. Turning against his allies, he raged across Azeroth, leaving death and terror in his wake. Omen was finally defeated in Moonglade, and he now sleeps among the silt of Lake Elune'ara. But each year, at the beginning of the festival, he stirs...
      MAIN QUEST LINE
      The celebration begins with an introductory quest, The Lunar Festival. The Cenarion Circle has invited all denizens of Azeroth to take part in the celebration of the Lunar Festival. You can learn more about the event by meeting with the Lunar Festival Harbinger.
      It wouldn’t be a celebration without fireworks. You’ll be asked to buy some Lunar Fireworks and Cluster Fireworks to launch and complete the quest Lunar Fireworks.
      Once you’ve proven your pyrotechnic prowess, you’ll receive your Lunar Festival Invitation to travel to Moonglade and speak with Valadar Starsong in Nighthaven. With your invitation in hand, you’ll be able to travel quickly to Moonglade by standing within Greater Moonlight throughout the holiday.
      Achievements
      The Lunar Festival features has 16 achievements and one meta-achievement.
      Elune's Blessing: Complete the Elune’s Blessing quest by defeating Omen. Frenzied Firecracker: Shoot off 10 Festival Firecrackers in 30 seconds or less. Lunar Festival Finery: Purchase a festive pant suit or festive dress with Coins of Ancestry. The Rocket's Red Glare: Shoot off 10 Red Rocket Clusters in 25 secons or less.  Coin of Ancestry There are five achievements involving Coins of Ancestry: Receive a Coin of Ancestry, Receive 5 Coins of Ancestry, Receive 10 Coins of Ancestry, Receive 25 Coins of Ancestry, and Receive 50 Coins of Ancestry. It's a good time to travel Azeroth, see the sights, and pay your respects to the various Elders. Visiting an Elder will reward reputation with select capital cities, a Coin of Ancestry, some experience and gold, and a Lucky Red Envelope.

      4 days running now, we have a new batch of 8.3 hotfixes including a couple of changes to the N'Zoth encounter, more corrupted item tweaks, no more cloaks from emissary caches and more. We also get one of the announced Classic AV changes with honorless targets no longer being lootable.
      January 24 (source)
      Dungeons and Raids
      N’Zoth, the Corruptor Fixed a bug where Azeroth's Radiance could shorten its channel duration without the player casting or moving. Azeroth's Radiance now resets its cooldown on a wipe and at the start of the encounter. Developers’ note: This quality-of-life change should dispel confusion about needing to wait for the cooldown to clear before a subsequent attempt. Horrific Visions Fixed an issue wherein Emergency Cranial Defibrillation didn't heal the player while under the effects of Inquisitor Darkspeak's Convert. Items and Rewards
      Emissary equipment caches no longer reward cloaks during Battle for Azeroth Season 4. The power of the following trinkets from Ny’alotha, the Waking City have been increased by around 10%: Vita-Charged Titanshard , Void-Twisted Titanshard , Humming Black Dragonscale , and Manifesto of Madness . The damage absorb effect of the Void-Twisted Titanshard will now be consumed after most standard damage absorb effects. Corrupted Items Glimpse of Clarity will no longer interact with the Warlock ability Command Demon , or the Hunter ability Command Pet . Lash of the Void Lash of the Void ’s (Corruption Effect) damage now scales with the item level of Unguent Caress , instead of the character's Attack Power. Fixed a bug which caused Lash of the Void to trigger more often than intended, but it still strikes all targets in a cone in front of the user. Heart of Azeroth Corrected several issues with Destruction Warlocks using Vision of Perfection either not getting an Infernal to spawn on their target, or a real summoned Infernal to incorrectly have the lowered Vision of Perfection duration applied to it. WoW Classic
      Players in Alterac Valley with the Honorless Target buff will no longer grant loot.
      Previous hotfixes:

      The big hotfix lists continue today as we're in day 3 of the streak. We have raid fixes for the final two bosses of Ny'alotha, focusing on some legendary cloak issues and N'Zoth sanity issues, corrupted item damage now scales with their item level instead of a players attack or spell power, a Vulpera racial fix and more!

      The Lash of the Void corrupted item tweak they announced earlier isn't listed here with the the others though, so it's unclear if the hotfix isn't in the game or it was just not added to these notes.
      January 23 (source)
      Allied Races
      Vulperas’ Bag of Tricks (racial) cooldown is now correctly modified by haste. Creatures and NPCs
      Lorewalker Cho should once again be visible to all players in Vale of Eternal Blossoms. Dungeons and Raids
      Operation: Mechagon In Mechagon Junkyard and Mechagon Workshop on Mythic Keystone difficulties, end-of-run chests now award Engine of Mecha-Perfection, or Blueprint: Perfectly Timed Differential, or Progression Sprockets for players’ Vision of Perfection (Essence). Ny'alotha, the Waking City Carapace of N’Zoth Resolved an issue where using Ashjra'kamas, Shroud of Resolve while in the Den of Transfusion may fail to bring players to Wrathion's side. Resolved an issue where using Ashjra'kamas, Shroud of Resolve could remove some player buffs when used. Resolved an issue where Ashjra'kamas, Shroud of Resolve's cooldown was not being reset upon the encounter starting. Reduced the health of Mycelial Cysts by 30%. N’Zoth the Corruptor Dispelling corrupted mind should not drain sanity ever, and letting it expire naturally should. Horrific Visions
      Fixed an issue where players on the quest “Reconstructing ‘Fear and Flesh’” who skipped all Corrupted Area objectives and completed a Lost Area objective first would not get 1 of their 2 Torn Page of "Fear and Flesh" for that run. Items and Rewards
      Corrupted Items Damage dealt by Infinite Stars, Twisted Appendages, and Gushing Wound (Corrupted Effects) is now based on the item level of a Corrupted item, rather than scaling dynamically with Attack Power and Spell Power. Developers’ note: Previously the damage dealt by these powers was modified by Attack Power and Spell Power, which meant that certain specialization abilities or random bonuses could cause drastic swings in their effectiveness. Infinite Stars in particular was too strong against single targets as a result of this and other factors. This change also adjusts Infinite Stars base damage accordingly, as the scaling method was one of the primary factors behind some of the extreme outliers we saw in our logs and from player feedback. Our goal with this change and other adjustments to Corruption powers is to improve parity in the effectiveness per point of Corruption of the different bonuses available on Visions of N’Zoth items. Grand Delusions ’ (Corrupted Effect) summoned entity no longer despawns when its owner is crowd controlled by enemy players. Fixed a bug that allowed the Lurking Schemer's Band a small chance at rolling a socket in addition to its baseline socket. Corrupted Gladiator's Spite now has a distinct visual difference between hostile corruption pools and allied corruption pools. Humming Black Dragonscale ’s visual effect should no longer break some animations and will now appear as intended when mounted. Quests
      Dying during “Waking a Dreamer ” can cause players to be unable to see Goldrinn and turn in the quest. While D.I.S.C.O. may be fun for some, dancing is now prohibited within the vicinity of the Chamber of Heart teleporter. Rugged Hyena Pelts now drop from all hyenas in Uldum as well as Amathet Hunters. Players with the Skinning skill will still be able to skin the hyenas for a guaranteed pelt, in addition to any that drop.

      The damage done by Infinite Stars, Twisted Appendages, and Gushing Wound will be based on the item level of the Corrupted Item instead of scaling dynamically with Attack Power and Spell Power. Lash of the Void damage received the same treatment and now procs less often than it used to.
      You can find out more details in today's hotfixes.
      Blizzard (Source)
      With a hotfix that is now live on all realms, we’ve adjusted the damage done by several Corruption Effects:
      Damage dealt by Infinite Stars, Twisted Appendages, and Gushing Wound is now based on the item level of the Corrupted item. This previously scaled dynamically with Attack Power and Spell Power. Lash of the Void damage is now based on the item level of the Corrupted Item, and now procs less often than before. Previously the damage dealt by these powers was modified by Attack Power and Spell Power, which meant that certain specialization abilities or random bonuses could cause drastic swings in their effectiveness. Infinite Stars in particular was too strong against single targets as a result of this and other factors.
      This change also adjusts Infinite Stars base damage accordingly, as the scaling method was one of the primary factors behind some of the extreme outliers we saw in our logs and from player feedback. Our goal with this change and other adjustments to Corruption powers is to improve parity in the effectiveness per point of Corruption of the different bonuses available on Visions of N’Zoth items.
