Spec-Specific Essences Now Grouped for Alts on MOTHER

Recommended Posts


A new update to the alt-friendly Echoes of Ny'alotha system for acquiring rank 3 essences has been added, and you'll no longer need to unlock the spec-specific versions of each essence. This also means that your main can now also buy their off-spec versions of the Essences listed below at MOTHER.

This change and the general Echoes of Ny'alotha system will come in really handy with the many new alts that are sure to pop up with today's announcement of the double XP buff!

We’ve just made a significant update to the new Echoes of Ny’alotha system, with the goal of making Essences much more available to your characters whose specializations put them in different roles (tanking, healing, damage).

With this change, we’ve lifted the restrictions on acquiring role-specific Azerite Essences from MOTHER. Now, the various ways that you obtain Rank 3 tanking, healing, or damage-specific Essences are now grouped together. If you’ve earned any of the three Essences in these groups, all three of the Essences will be unlocked for purchase from MOTHER with Echoes of Ny’alotha:

  • Spark of Inspiration, Unwavering Ward, Strength of the Warden (obtained from Horrific Visions)
  • Touch of the Everlasting, Spirit of Preservation, Breath of the Dying (obtained from reputation with Rajani)
  • Blood of the Enemy, Artifice of Time, Sphere of Suppression (obtained from Battlegrounds)
  • Condensed Life Force, Vitality Conduit, Azeroth’s Undying Gift (obtained from raiding in The Eternal Palace)
  • Essence of the Focusing Iris, Life-Binder’s Invocation, Anima of Life and Death (obtained from Mythic Keystone dungeons)

As a reminder, this was already the case with Purification Protocol, Nullifcation Dynamo, and Well of Existence (the Rustbolt Resistance Essences) as well as The Ever-Rising Tide, Aegis of the Deep, and The Unbound Force (the Nazjatar Essences).

A side-effect of this change is that even a single character now has a way to obtain these off-role Essences, and can either use Echoes to purchase them from MOTHER or use the original means of acquisition. That means that your Priest who raided Azshara in Shadow-spec and got Condensed Life-Force up to Rank 3 is now able to obtain Vitality Conduit from MOTHER for a Holy-spec healing boost.

Thank you for all of your feedback on this!

      With the Forbidden Reach becoming a max-level zone in Patch 10.0.7, players can collect keys to open doors in the Zskera Vaults, a place where Neltharion hid his riches.
      The following article provides a very early look at the Forbidden Reach (max level) zone in Patch 10.0.7. Many features are not available for testing yet and with future PTR builds, this article will soon be outdated.
      The Zskera Vaults
      When you first enter the Forbidden Reach, you will receive a quest to explore the mysterious Zskera Vaults.

      The vaults contain various riches, but to access them, you will need Zskera Vault Keys. For the quest, you'll get the first 6 free, but you'll need to farm more from Rare Elites, opening Treasure Chests eventually, and other sources on the island.

      The Zskera Vaults are essentially a big room full of doors that you open using keys. A key is consumed every time you open a door.

      Behind the doors, you will find treasure chests, Rare Elites, or puzzles that need to be solved. The doors have a daily reset and are procedurally generated for every character, so they will never be the same.
      The Zskera Vaults Rewards
      We've noticed the previously-determined Primordial Gems drop here. Primordial Gems are sockets coming in Patch 10.0.7.

      Other rewards include toys and battle pets.
      Holoviewer: The Lady of Dreams Holoviewer: The Scarlet Queen Holoviewer: The Timeless One Here are some of the pets that drop in the Zskera Vault chests.

      Starting next week, cross-realm groups can enter Mythic difficulty Vault of the Incarnates!
      With the weekly reset in each region the week of February 14, we will enable cross-realm groups in Mythic difficulty Vault of the Incarnates.
      This represents a shift in philosophy that has evolved over the last few raid tiers, where we’ve seen the pace at which the Hall of Fame filled up for both factions become unaligned with the timing that we would have chosen for players at large.
      We will still maintain a Hall of Fame for this and future raids. To qualify for it in cross-realm groups, you must simply have at least 16 players from the same guild taking part in the raid.
      With future raids, we’re looking into a more-scheduled approach for when cross-realm Mythic difficulty becomes available. We want to keep our options open for the timing to vary, since we yet don’t know the circumstances we might observe in the future, but we intend to provide further announcements like this one to give players time to reorganize.
