Targeted Corruption Effects and Faster Cloak Levelling

Recommended Posts

qvTiQH6.jpg

Blizzard is working on updates to the game that focus on power progression. This includes more items purchasable for Echoes of Ny'alotha, targeted Corruption effects, and easier cloak levelling. The plan is to roll this out in the coming week. Read on for details!

UPDATE #2: The system is now live on US realms!

UPDATE:  The Corruption Effects Vendor has been delayed. Blizzard is also working on enabling re-corruption clensed items. You can find more information here.

Blizzard is not extending the 100% reputation buff as pointed out by Game Director Ion Hazzikostas, and instead, we're getting updates to the game that focus on power progression of new level 120 characters.

We’re working on an update to the game that we expect to roll out in the coming week. We plan to make improvements to the process of obtaining Corrupted items on max-level characters and also streamline upgrading the legendary cloak Ashjra’kamas.

Our goal with this update is to speed up the power progression of new level 120 characters, while giving established endgame players more agency in pursuing the Corruption effects they most desire.

More Echoes

In our last update, we added Echoes of Ny’alotha, a new currency available from most Visions of N’Zoth content, which can be used to directly purchase Rank 3 Essences that have already been unlocked on a different character. We plan to expand the availability and purpose of this new currency. Now, once any character completes the legendary cloak questline, they will immediately begin earning Echoes of Ny’alotha from all of the usual sources.

Echoes of Ny’alotha will be much more abundant than before. As we expand the usefulness of Echoes of Ny’alotha, we want to ensure that players who haven’t felt the need to accumulate them don’t feel disadvantaged, so we will be increasing both the droprates of Echoes and their costs by a factor of 5. This means that when these changes take effect, a Major Assault will award 625 Echoes, up from 125. The cost to purchase an Essence will also increase by the same factor, from 500 to 2500 Echoes.

If you are planning to purchase a Rank 3 Essence with Echoes of Ny’alotha that you’ve already earned, you should do so now, before these costs change.

Improving Ashjra’kamas

We’re also reducing the requirements for any quest step in upgrading the cloak from Ranks 1 to 15 that previously required multiple Horrific Visions. Each Rank can now be achieved in a single Horrific Vision. For example, upgrading your Rank 13 cloak to Rank 14 will now require 2 Torn Page of The Final Truth" Torn Page of "The Final Truth" (was 6), so if you’re currently in possession of 2 or more pages, you’ll turn them all in and immediately complete that quest. The following quest to upgrade from Rank 14 to 15 will then require that you go get 2 more new Torn Pages (was 8).

The requirements for further minor upgrades to the cloak after Rank 15 with Malefic Core Malefic Cores have not been changed.

MOTHER will also offer Vessel of Horrific Visions Vessels of Horrific Visions in exchange for Echoes of Ny’alotha, providing an additional source of access to Horrific Visions that does not require completion of Assaults.

Choosing Your Corruption

In addition to any unlocked Essences, MOTHER will now also offer several new Preserved Contaminants, which allow for a specific Corruption effect (and the associated Corruption penalty) to be applied to a selected item. The inventory of available Preserved Contaminants will change twice each week, mirroring the Assault cadence, and will cycle through all available Corruption effects at various levels of potency.

You can use a Preserved Contaminant to apply the Corruption you purchased to any uncorrupted item that can be Corrupted, much like an enchant. Here are some sample costs for MOTHER’s updated offerings:

Item Cost (Echoes of Ny’alotha)
Vessel of Horrific Visions Vessel of Horrific Visions 1750
Rank 3 Essence 2500
Masterful I 3000
Siphoner I 4250
Twilight Devastation I 6250
Siphoner II 6300
Ineffable Truth II 6750
Racing Pulse III 7875
Echoing Void III 12000
Twilight Devastation III 15000

Important Notes

We highly suggest that you purchase any Rank 3 Essences that you want and can afford as soon as possible.

Due to a technical limitation, items that were cleansed before this update cannot be re-corrupted. New items can be cleansed after this update and then re-corrupted.

All of the previous ways that Corrupted items and Vessels can be acquired are still in place. The changes above are meant to supplement those sources and provide you with more options and control in pursuing your goals.

So... if there were no essences you could purchase, your character didn't earn currency.  So my main, who had almost everything you could earn and can use specific corruptions, has next to no Echoes.  That's messed up, Blizz.

They are increasing drop by 5 from all sources...meaning that from LFR you will get not 25 but 125, from horific vision 50before 250now from main chest and 125 from other chests meaning you can get 750 for 1 run and you chan do as many runs as you want(if you have vessesls ofc).

You will not buy it immediaetly but still prety fast if you put some effort ? (500from lfr,750 from vision, 2x 625 from assault = 2500 from doing this once + M+ and BG...should be doable in 2-3weeks...in one week for "no lifers" ? )

Geting rank3 essence is prety easy with echoes and nothing is changet in that way. Ofc i would like to get them faster..like a lot of other ppl, but on other side it would be 2easy and feel like boost where you have nothing to do and get things for free

Here I made something. Well, life is hard, you actually have to play to get things :( :( :( :(

Approximatively, 10k per week, well... Is clearly a good thing for a "targeted" corruption. Please stop whining, for once, they do something good.

Plus, 15k is for deva R3, and from what i've calculated, it's something like 200-300 per corruption level (Depending the corruption), wich means a rough 6k for 12% stats (300/corru) wich are way better for most of the classes, and using a deva R3 on a piece (75 corruption) is enough to use it with other corruption ppl already have.

Thanks for doing the work so people don't have a leg to stand on with the usual "Blizzard ruins everything" mantra.

This is such crap. I been working for ever just to get past rank 12. And now you can get to 15 super fast. Why bother grinding your but off for months when they change it in a day. They do this so they can get more players. Come on blizz.

It also means you can get Rank 15 cloak asap (the grind post rank 12 is the worst by far) and still have time to get some alts up ?

      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.
      Disclaimer
      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!
      (Source)
      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.
