Conduit Upgrade Items Will Be Specialization-Specific Starting With Next Reset

Recommended Posts

Starting with next week’s reset, Blizzard is making Conduit upgrade items specialization-specific, instead of class-specific.

Hello everyone

You bring up a valid point about the conduit upgrade items not being specialization specific. It can be frustrating when you get a conduit for a spec that you may never use.

To address this, we’re working on a change that will go live with next week’s restarts that will allow Soultwining Crescent Soultwining Crescent and Death-Bound Shard Death-Bound Shard to grant conduits based on your current specialization instead of by class. In order to receive the conduits of the spec of your preference, you will need to switch your specialization fully, changing Loot Specialization won’t work.

In addition to this change, we’re increasing the drop rate of Death-Bound Shard when completing Adamant Vaults in Torghast, Tower of the Damned.

Thank you for your feedback!

Timewalking xp warrants a midweek update, but this nah, just save them in your bag for few days for literally no reason other than some weird power flex by devs.

Adding functionality to an item that previously didn't exist is not the same as modifying the current value it provides. Also, much like seasonal gear, I wouldn't be surprised if it doesn't work on ones you obtain before reset. Not to stop you from hoarding them, but because of how object creation works.

It is a welcome reprieve but this should of been implemented at the start of SL; would of saved a lot of players time via grinding Conduits the first time around.

"Power flex by devs"..... "power flex... by devs"...

yea they're! flexing buddy! flexing because youre bothered by something that doesnt exist. Theres no reason for this to be added mid-week. Demanding instant gratification much?

The fact that you defend Blizz in this case is the exact reason we get the game quality that we do.... this is a PREMIUM sub'd game.... Zero reason they needed to "nerf" timewalking XP in the first place... and to do it midweek is ridiculous....  This conduit problem has been an issue since 9.1 and doesn't warrant a quick hot patch? Hold them accountable!

I suspect the haste used to "fix" the Timewalking concern was partly because the event is only a weeklong, but also because the effects of what they were trying to fix were a lot more impactful in the short term.  With the change they are waiting for for reset, while certainly welcome, the impact is more of a convenience than anything else - it's not being used to "fix something wrong or unintended" but more to change a prior, intended design to function in a way that is preferred.

Damn, this is welcome news.  I don't play Blood spec, except when I solo Torghast, and I don't do Unholy at all. So it's really frustrating having the majority of my conduit upgrades go to stuff I don't ever use, before I get one that's useful (and thus, waste a purchase, since I've yet to get a conduit upgrade drop from raiding in SoD).  At least now, I know my purchases will be targeted and I won't be wasting research currency.

      Blizzard is adding new Feet cosmetic armor to the game in Patch 9.1.5. In this post, we're looking at the new items in more detail.
      Tauren and Trolls will appreciate new boots coming in the latest patch. On the 9.1.5 PTR, they can be purchased from the Trial of Style NPCs, but their source remains unknown for now. Below, we previewed all the new models.

      Undaunted, the deaf and hard-of-hearing Warcraft guild, have completed Ahead of the Curve: Sylvanas Windrunner. Congratulations!
      Undaunted is at it again! The guild earned AotC Denathrius and cleared 3/10 Mythic Castle Nathria on March 26, 2021. Yesterday, a post on Reddit revealed that they now downed Sylvanas on Heroic difficulty. Now, Mythic difficulty awaits. We wish them the best of luck! Here is a screenshot of the guild shared on Reddit.

      In something that has now become a new WoW tradition, players have been gathering to celebrate the end of Summer as we now have a very thematic seasonal clock in the game! The circle is complete as we've now seen all 4 variations of the mount in-game as well.
      While WoW is pretty static when it comes to seasons and, well, time in general, we now have a really cool connection to the real world in the form of the Wandering Ancient tree mount, so we'll be seeing gatherings like these below a lot!

      Source: Galaxy_119.
      And some will be showing the tree off in its natural habitat, proving that even ancients can be VERY stealthy in the right conditions:

      Source: drinnster.
      The Wandering Ancient is really awesome and adds extra interactivity and "feel" of the world - definitely one of the better additions to WoW in recent memory and we hope to see these little changing of seasons rituals continue on forever!
      In case you're new or missed when the mount arrived, it should be in your mount collection tab already as  gift if you have Shadowlands purchased, now head on out there and showcase the new Fall colors!
