Vision of Perfection Nerfed for Mages

Recommended Posts


The Vision of Perfection Azerite Essence has been nerfed for Mages a short while ago. This change mostly affects Frost mages, as our own Made guide writer Dutchmagoz explains:


One large reason Frost has been doing so well in pre-patch is due to the changes to Rune of Power Rune of Power, which now drops automatically when you cast Icy Veins Icy Veins. This combined with the pre-nerf Vision of Perfection Vision of Perfection Essence, which can proc Icy Veins, yields to very high Rune of Power uptime. This also synergies very well with Thermal Void Thermal Void, as Thermal Void would also extend the Icy Veins procced via Vision of Perfection.

Today this interaction with Vision of Perfection and Rune of Power has been nerfed, as the Essence no longer drops the Rune. The synergy between Thermal Void and Vision still remains, so Vision still has its perks, but this will cause a very significant drop-off in DPS for Frost. Since Vision was much better than any other major Essence option, this will probably have a big impact on Frost's DPS in pre-patch, most likely dropping it to Fire's level or lower. The exact impact of this nerf will become more apparent over the next reset.

They should focus on fixing stuff in SL-Beta, rly no one cares about class balance in pre patch

      Chronicle of Lost Memories is a catch-up item that teaches you uncollected Legendary Powers for your class.
      You can purchase it from Renown quartermasters at your Covenant Sanctum. It costs 35 Grateful Offerings each, and the item teaches you a random Legendary Power for your class that you haven't collected yet. You can get the currency from doing activities related to the Anima Conductor that you unlock at Renown level 3.

      Blizzard decided to scrap the idea of realm first achievements in general, but there's still one that was added in Shadowlands that you can earn.
      Realm First! Shadowlands Keystone Master requires the party to participate in the realm-first completion of a Level 15 or higher Shadowlands Mythic dungeon within the time limit. It does not matter which dungeon you pick.
      The achievement cannot be earned before December 8, though. The new Mythic Season starts when Castle Nathria opens, and currently, only Mythic difficulty dungeons are available for play.

      Here we are 3 days into the new expansion, and the Heroic dungeon glory achievement has already been completed! As spotted by Wowhead, Dirtyb, Taterpuffs, Drennalin, Aeglour and Dartoes from the Tichondrius and Stormreaver servers have pushed themselves and got the Glory of the Shadowlands Hero done, netting themselves a cool mount right off the bat! They weren't even the only group to do it, as another got it finished within 6 hours.


      For more on the run, including details on which the tougher parts of the achievement were for the group, head on over to Wowhead.

      The Maw's mount restrictions have been annoying many players (well, non Worgen and Druid players at least), but as we all know there's many way of moving around in WoW. In this particular case, Googleflax used one of the more awesome items in the game, the Falling Flame to get where he wanted in the Maw, and then Goblin Glider Kit to, well, not die once he landed (click the HD button in the bottom right of the video for non-1998 visuals):
      The item is from the Timeless Isle (the rare Cinderfall, right in front of the broken bridge, as Googleflax explains), but unfortunately both has a 1-hour cooldown and only has 50 uses. It has also been used extensively many times to host "Super hole in one" competitions, where players would aim for the Dalaran well for example from quite a ways off (unfortunately only a few clips remain in the linked article, but you'll get the idea).
      So, if you want to do some crazy stuff in the Maw, it's time to head back to Pandaria for a bit and get this awesome thing!

      We've all had some cool level-up moments, when the ding just perfectly syncs up with something we're doing at that moment, but we'd all be hard-pressed to top this particular one, not least of all because it was the actual final level of the Shadowlands that was achieved. The title says it all, really:
      Talk about being thrown into the endgame...
