Eternal Palace Off-Spec Rank 3 Essences Not Bundled Together Under the New System

Recommended Posts

Rank 3 Essences of different specializations from the Eternal Palace are not bundled together. They must be unlocked separately, meaning the Tank / DPS Essence won't be purchasable from MOTHER if you only earned the Healer variant and vice versa.

This applies to the following Essences:

Conversely, Mechagon and Nazjatar Essences are bundled together, so if you unlock just the one for your spec, you will be able to buy the off-spec Essences from MOTHER.

The Echoes of Ny'alotha system came with a few issues so far, and you can find an overview here and a list of all Essence item names purchasable from MOTHER in this post.

Eternal Palace Essences were formed by a loot drop from wing bosses, just like the singular Void Droplet essence is in Nyalotha.

Mechagon was unlocked via reputation levels and purchased through S.P.A.R.E parts boxes and oscillators.

Nazjatar was unlocked via reputation levels and accumulating follower XP through dailies.

Apples and oranges.

-Edit

Has anyone confirmed that they can actually buy for example, the tanking essence from Mechagon through MOTHER if their primary character did not have the tanking role available? i.e. Rogue main and DH alt.

While that may be true, the system has so many exceptions that we thought it would be best to mention this.

Good idea, and thanks for that!

I guess in the end either way would make sense, to me anyway.  I just wish it was consistently one way or the other for ease of remembrance.

Okay so lets look at why they did this, instead of just saying its different. Let's say it didn't matter, you made one EP essence you can get any of them on an alt.

Let's say your primary character is a druid like mine, but you only formed the Tank and DPS essences because you only do Bear/Cat, or you stopped running EP when Nyalotha came out, or you just plain forgot. For whatever reason, you never formed the Healing essence.

You have shaman alt that you heal on, and you buy the Healing essence. You then log back in on your druid, and because your shaman has a rank 3 essence that you don't you can now buy it from MOTHER too, without either character having ever collected the necessary reliquary pieces to form ranks 1-3 of the Healing essence.

That's why its not bundled for EP. If forming the reliquary pieces had instead been turned into a vendor that unlocked buying ranks 1-3 of any of the 3 essences for say, manapearls instead, then yes it would make sense to have all 3 available regardless.

My main is a BM Hunter.. my alt is a Prot pally. I can confirm that you CAN NOT get tank essances from Mother after unlocking the dps equivalent essance on a dps toon. RIP having a tank alt, guess I'm limited to only dps alts.

      One of the cinematics that got us most hyped for its expansion when it first showed up, WoD's upgrade makes it even more impressive! SnazzyAI continues the WoW cinematic improvements, and it's now Warlords' time to both shine and get smoothed out! While the 4K upgrade looks great in its own right, it's the 48 FPS that's the bigger difference here, especially with the orc facial animations.

      It seems the pre-patch keeps bringing us new Scourge invasion-like oddities, despite the event not starting yet! The squish/scaling hits again, this time uncomfortably mimicking the real world, as we have another possible outbreak! This one isn't quite as lethal as the original Corrupted Blood epidemic, and it's a lot harder to spread, but there's still fun/mayhem to be had.
      The actual disease isn't anything new and has bee around a long time, as BlazingShadowAU and their group were doing ICC and when they were done they returned to the Great Seal, where people started dying all around them. They accidentally brought back Necrotic Plague, and the initial outbreak didn't quite last long as the disease isn't nearly as deadly as the old-school Corrupted Blood. However, if you have a group determined to have some fun with it...

      So, Necrotic Plague works differently since the pre-patch, as it apparently scales up quite a bit, to the point of 1-shotting players! Unfortunately this didn't quite work everywhere, and the Orgrimmar fields of Corrupted Blood death were not to be, with the main casualty in Org being the innkeeper and a few players. But, there was a better target available, as the scaling in BfA and Legion was quite deadly.
      It still took some effort, as the plague is on a 15 second timer and keeping the stacks high was part of the fun as it made it deadlier. And to do that you have to spread it to someone by dying, come back and get infected again by someone who has survived - and the higher the stacks get, the harder that is to pull off because players die faster and faster! Dispelling the disease also spreads it, but removes a stack, so there was probably a better way to get this done.
      In the end, the outbreak was limited to just a bit of fun in the Great Seal, as that's where the scaling was highest, and the close-by rez spot made spreading the plague easier.
      Unfortunately the reddit video embeds are still not working properly, but definitely head on over there and check out the full video!

      The stacks were getting pretty high at the end there!

      And so the group had a little bit of fun and there wasn't a full outbreak, with the Lich King's power growing a lot as players were dying all over the place and spreading the disease (perhaps if Bolvar had access to this, we wouldn't be in this whole Shadowlands mess to begin with). The pre-patch certainly continues to deliver on the weirdness, and we can't wait to see what it shows us next!

      The first Mythic Ny'alotha nerfs have arrived in the Shadowlands pre-patch. Blizzard reduced the health of enemies and nerfed Carapace of N'Zoth. More details will appear in today's hotfix update.
      (Source)
      Late yesterday, we made the following adjustments to Ny’alotha on Mythic difficulty:
      Damage and health of all enemies reduced 10%. Carapace of N’Zoth Infinite Void damage reduced by 50% per stack, Black Scar damage reduced by 10%, and Mandible Slam damage reduced by 25%. These hotfixes are live, and will appear in our next hotfixes update.

      Here's Rextroy's brand new video where he utilizes Shaman's Frost Shock and the Hailstorm that persists even when you switch specializations to one-shot players.
      Here's a bit of background information on how to perform the combo.
      Here's the Frost Shock combo in action.

      Learn more about how to reach Exalted with the Gelkis and Magram Centaur Clans in Desolace under an hour!
      If you're working on the 100 Exalted Reputations achievement and are still missing some reputations for the title and Pureheart Courser mount, we've got some good news for you!

      It's possible to reach Exalted with Gelkis and Magram Centaur Clans in Desolace under an hour. Note that both reputations count as one.
      If you completed the quests in Desolace before Cataclysm, you must complete a series of quests which take about an hour up to Death to Agogridon. Pick all quests in the surrounding area to get started. Don't forget to toggle the filter on your minimap to see quests that are below your level.
      If you completed the quests up to Death to Agogridon post-Cataclysm, talk to Karnum Marshweaver at 57, 48 who will provide you with enough reputation to reach Exalted with both factions.
