The Anima Cap Is Becoming a Problem

Recommended Posts


It seems the previously seemingly huge 35,000 Anima cap in Sanctum reservoirs is becoming an issue for some players, as they're just completely full-up!

With many players having saved the blue stuff up for patch 9.1, the limitations were already a little annoying before it hit, but now they're even more problematic, as some players have actually bought everything they could on their character AND are still capped at the very start of the patch!


Some precisions : I know it's not everyone that have so much time to unlock everything with anima. (And not everyone wants to spend so many time farming anima.) But I love farming and this became really frustrating with the new patch.

We will need this anima, but not now, because everything is time-gated ! Okey, fine. But can I, please, deposite it ? PLEASE ?!

- Meraviilla

Other players have also basically started deleting the Anima items, with the same issues:

What can i spend anime on if i'm capped with all covenant awards unlocked?
I cant figure out what to use my anime on and my inventory is starting to get full of it. Any suggestions? - RandyVivaldi
I have the same problem. I have all the mogs, pets, mounts so I started deleting the anima. Why is it even capped? War resources were never capped and anima is basically the same thing named differently. - depaerture
I do not yet have this issue, but I can see it coming on the horizon already. It's a bit weird they haven't addressed it in 9.1 with some sort of anima-sink or a way to transfer it to alts. - Azerate2016

As you can see, Meraviilla isn't the only player that's mentioned this issue and it really would be a great addition to have some sort of Anima-transfer for alts available, similar to the Soul Ash one. It would also certainly benefit everyone and not just the over-prepared, as it would make purchasing the many transmog options and mounts of the various Covenants a lot easier. Now, as has been pointed out in the thread, you can trade Anima for gold via the 100 Anima equipment, but that's just a relatively inefficient way of gold farming, not really solving the issue.

Perhaps the pretty major increase in Anima gains during 9.0.5 messed up some calculations? In any case this is one to keep an eye on, as more and more players get everything they need from Anima (for now) but still continue to play and gain it, making the cap a bigger issue to a larger amount of players.

All I can say is QQ. This is a petty thing to be mad about and is already solved by either buying stuff with anima, or banking the extra you get in your banks, or by just getting rid of the turn in items. There shouldn't be this big of an outrage.

the thing is the cap make no sense because if blizz wanted to hinder you from hoarding a gigantic ton of anima so you cant just buy everything that comes in the next patches it dont hinder you at all cause you can just hoerd the tokens on your bank i hope someone at blizz realises that better sooner then later and just get rid of the cap

I was already capped at the patch. I've already earned at least another 30k since the patch. I don't like the NF transmogs and I'm not big into mounts, so I don't buy that stuff. For me, the only real outlet to spending it, is the adventure/command table (and healing companions). So, my bank is filling up quickly. It would be nice if there was another outlet to spend this stuff on.

I've purchased every mount, every mog, every pet, every piece of armor.  I've quit doing WQ that give anima, I've quit doing table missions that give anima.  I get anima from dungeons, raids, and the new daily quest and exploration items in Korthia (and related activities) only.  Every single day I end up deleting hundreds of anima items in my inventory ... one ... at ... a ... time.  This can NOT be the intended game play.  

They could make the anima items worth 1 copper and I could set an addon to auto sell them and I would be happy.  But at the end of each play session having to drag an item out of my inventory, click okay and repeat dozens of times... just to remind me that something is wrong.   If this isn't you, great!  You don't have the problem... others do.


Here is the anima I got from just over an hour today ... https://imgur.com/zUVdRHc

      We've seen the crazy Torghast speed runs with players just sprinting to the finish line in a mad dash to the sub-3 minute mark, but today we have... well a different kind of mad dash!
      Gitoff has gone for speed AND performance in layer 12, not only going pretty fast in general (perhaps not as fast as the recent 2 minute 56 second run, but definitely faster than most of us can ever hope to go), but also getting the 5-star flawless score as well!   The immediate comment in the video description? "Wasted at least 30seconds on floor 1 :(" Granted, Gitoff did have a nice little 9-minute Momentum buff ready before entering the run, but that's preparation for you!

      The final hotfixes of the week focus on Shards of Domination tuning.
      July 30 (Source)
      Items and Rewards
      Shards of Domination [With weekly maintenance in each region] Blood Link – The damage and healing amount has been increased at all ranks by 20%. [With weekly maintenance in each region] Winds of Winter – The amount of damage and healing stored by the Winds has been increased at all ranks by ~45%. Developers’ note: The difference between the three Rune Words for the Shards of Domination system is bigger than we want it to be. We have identified and fixed a bug in Winds of Winter which was preventing some damaging and healing abilities from counting towards its total, and we have retuned Winds of Winter and Blood Link so that the relative power between Rune Word bonuses is more balanced. Jotungeirr, Destiny's Call will now reset its cooldown at the end of boss encounters. Fixed an issue where Ticking Sack of Terror could trigger more than intended in the presence of multiple trinkets.

      As the WoW team mentioned in their statement, they have been removing references "that are not appropriate for our world". While we've noticed the /spit emote change on the BCC PTR, most/all of the other content removal seems to be centered on references to Alex Afrasiabi, who was talked about in the Activision Blizzard lawsuit. Today we'll take a look at some of the things already removed from the game and some that remain, as the removal seems to be an ongoing process.
      First off we have many references already removed, with the Fras Siabi and Foror names being replaced by Ezra Grimm and Nostro. There's many more items, NPCs etc. related to the two names above and others, which you can check out over on Wowhead. The most notable NPC change, however, is the one that received immediate retribution from players when news of the lawsuit broke, as Field Marshall Afrasiabi is now Field Marshall Stonebridge. For a longer list of some of the items that have been removed, check out Wowhead's article here.

      Source: Wowhead.
      However, it seems the work is still ongoing, as there are some references that have not been addressed yet, or some that didn't quite go through completely, like the below. You can see the while the NPC's name remains problematic, it is actually changed in the chat window when he speaks:

      Source: MrGraffio.
      While many references to Fras Siabi have been removed from Stratholme, like the mini-boss, quest etc, at least one remains:

      Source: Thekingchem.
      And then there's this very specific one, which might have even gone completely missed if yuvalal hadn't spotted it, as Foror is mentioned in a conversation between two NPCs in the Escape from Durnholde Keep/Old Hillsbrad Foothills Caverns of Time dungeon:

      Source: yuvalal.

      Clearly the removal of references is still ongoing, and even the ones missed above may already be removed from the game when you read this, as Blizzard have a lot of them to go through.

      Blizzard announced some nerfs for Shards of Domination set bonuses recently. They even made it live briefly, but have been reverted, as the devs didn't want to proceed with the change.
      Further Shard adjustments will be made in the coming days, but they don't want to nerf them now that many players have obtained and upgraded them. 
      Items and Rewards
      Shards of Domination Earlier this week, a change to the power of Shards of Domination set bonuses (e.g. Chaos Bane) was briefly applied to the live game. We are no longer planning to proceed with that change at all. We may make further adjustments in the coming days, but we will not reduce the power of Shards now that many players have earned and upgraded them.

      Tired of looking up Soul Ash and Soul Cinder costs? Check out this simple macro that tells you how much of each you need to upgrade Legendary items in Patch 9.1!
      If you run the following macro in the chat, you will see how much Soul Ash / Soul Cinders you need for:
      A new Rank 1 and 4 Legendary; Rank 5 and 6 Soul Cinder costs; Soul Ash & Cinders cost from Rank 1 to 6. The macro was created by Shinela and improved by DoverBoys.
      /run local f,r,i,j,a,c=C_CurrencyInfo.GetCurrencyInfo,"\nRank","\124T3743738:0\124t","\124T4067362:0\124t" a=f(1828).quantity c=f(1906).quantity print(r,"1:",i,1250-a,r,"4:",i,5150-a,r,"5:",j,1100-c,r,"6:",j,1650-c,"/n",r,"1 to 6:",i,3900-a,j,1650-c) The following appears in the chat window when you run it.
