Long-Term Tips for the Creation Catalyst in Patch 9.2.5

Recommended Posts

Arasitar has compiled a list of long-term tips for the Creation Catalyst that became available on live servers today!

As you probably know, the Creation Catalyst is now available on live realms! The system lets you convert non-tier set items to Tier Set items. Reddit user Arasitar posted some useful long-term tips for the Creation Catalyst on Reddit. We highlight some of them below.

  • Higher item level drops can be converted to Tier Sets in the long run (Helm, Shoulders, Chest, Hands, Legs). For Cloth wearers, Mythic Jailer drops Item Level 285 Gloves that can be converted into a 285 Tier Glove piece, as opposed to the Item Level 278 Gloves from Lihuvim.
  • Plate Wearers can get Item Level 285 Gloves from Rygelon and 285 Legs from the Jailer, both being upgrades over Lihuvim and Halondrus Item Level 278 pieces.
  • The remaining slots that don't grant set bonuses (Back, Wrists, Waist, Feet) can be converted to pieces of armor with better secondary stats
  • Early drops from the Sepulcher are now relevant as potential Tier pieces, this includes BoE items from the raid! 
  • If you accidentally deleted items that you can convert to Tier Sets, visit the Item Restoration Page to restore them.
  • Save up gear pieces if they come with tertiary stats and sockets.
  • Although this hasn't been mentioned in the tips, keep in mind World Boss Antros Loot and Sandworn Relics Gear sold by Rafiq can also be used for conversion!

You will find more information about the system in our post about the Creation Catalyst.

      We're in week 11 of the Sepulcher raid, so it's high time we switched our focus over to Mythic, with over 126 guilds having finished the raid at maximum difficulty. As we move to Mythic we're also taking a look at the individual boss charts, so you get a better idea of what's happening where (and we're also still covering Heroic at the end as well).
      Mythic
      95th Percentile
      We don't have a comparison point for the high percentiles in Mythic, since it's the first week of the switch, but we can compare it to last week's Heroic chart. Destruction is the very top of the pile in Mythic (and you can read about why in last week's entry), both in the high percentiles and overall, but Frost DK is doing just as well as it is in Heroic, actually beating out Demonology in the higher difficulty. Marksmanship is also in a much better position here, and Retribution is especially benefiting from the increase in difficulty, as it's 8 spots higher than in Heroic!

      95th percentile Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      All Percentiles
      We do have a direct week-to-week comparison in the all percentiles chart, and here we see Demonology actually climb up a spot and take 2nd place away from Survival. Retribution actually falls a little as Havoc takes its place in 9th and Windwalker pushes it out of the top 10, while Feral nose-dives down 9 spots towards the bottom.

      Halondrus
      Moving on to the individual bosses, Halondrus is where Enhancement shines most, closely followed by fellow melees Assassination and Feral.

      Anduin Wrynn
      Anduin isn't quite the main reason Destruction is doing so well, but he's definitely contributing, as Survival and Frost get their fill here as well.

      Rygelon
      The Destruction booster himself, as you can see Rygelon's Scouring Tithe interaction brings the Warlocks to the very top in the overall rankings, with the VERY few Feral Druids popping up to the top here as well.

      The Jailer
      The Jailer is more in favor of the other Warlock flavor, as Demo is making its name here, while Ferals gather in a more respectable number to show that the Rygelon placement wasn't necessarily a fluke.

      All percentiles Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      Heroic
      While it's relegated to the bottom of the post, Heroic is still very relevant, with much higher numbers of players giving its data a lot of validity and credibility. This week we see a new No.1 in the overall bracket, as Demonology takes over from Survival and Shadow bumps Enhancement down one, with Balance doing the same to Marksmanship.

      After a long time of only being available via the Overwolf app, CurseForge has announced that it is now once again available in standalone form! The CurseForge addon manager app Alpha is now available and you can download it over on their site (but be careful to click the right link):

      This arrives as a reaction to a prolonged period of some players voicing their dissatisfaction over the client only being available via Overwolf, and was revealed together with a larger announcement of the CurseForge API being released  (you can read the full version here), and here is the relevant section:
      We take community feedback seriously. Many of the community members voiced their preference for a leaner approach to managing mods. We’ve taken this into consideration and developed a standalone version of the CurseForge app on Windows, based on Electron, which you can download here.
      As with the Linux version, it currently supports World of Warcraft only. We plan to keep this version in feature parity with the Overwolf version in the future. Please note, this is fresh from the oven and currently on Alpha.
      If you have any questions or feedback about this, please join our Discord and let us know.
      This was initially spotted by scytherz over on reddit, and you can check out that thread for plenty of comments on the new app's functionality, relative light weight, and other details players have tested.

      We're looking at a strange bug that affects some proto-drake mounts on live servers.
      Many players are reporting issues with their proto-drake mounts on Reddit. The first report is from 5 days ago. The bug affects Reins of the Time-Lost Proto-Drake, which for some reason, no longer flies in the middle of the screen, and its run animation is twice the speed of other proto-drake mounts.

      Apparently, Reins of the Violet Proto-Drake is experiencing the same issues while Reins of the Ironbound Proto-Drake and Reins of the Rusted Proto-Drake work as they should.

      The second report is from 3 months ago and showcases the strange mount animation. It claims that all proto-drake mounts except for those from Ulduar are affected by the bug.

      Did you experience this strange bug on live servers?

      Patch 9.2.5 appears to be the first update to the game where major story elements remain heavily encrypted. In the latest PTR update, Blizzard shipped an encrypted 9.2.5 splash screen, which is something they've never done before.
      Players are prompted with a splash screen when they log in to the game for the first time when an update goes live. It shows you what's new in the patch. Here's the splash screen for Patch 9.2.

      The splash screen for Patch 9.2.5 was shipped in the latest build, but it is encrypted and cannot be previewed. Maybe it has something to do with the mysterious Stormwind and Orgrimmar updates or the Forsaken (spoiler alert).
      However, the splash screen text for Patch 9.2.5 is available for preview but contains no spoilers.
      New in Season 4! Shadowlands Season 4 - Earn new rewards in Mythic Keystone dungeons and PvP. New Mythic+ Dungeons - Experience iconic legacy dungeons with Mythic affixes! Fated Raids - Return to Shadowlands raids for a new challenge and new rewards.

      Reddit user nazranramlee noticed something interesting while visiting their local hospital in Malaysia. The TV was showing the Mists of Pandaria trailer on repeat.

      Apparently, this isn't specific to just one hospital in the country.
      Reddit user aimlessart saw the same trailer playing over and over in another hospital they have been visiting for over 6 years, claiming they both might have been set up by the same contractor who thought the Mists of Pandaria trailer looked visually appealing for entertainment purposes.
      The contractor most likely never bothered to update the visuals again, which is why the TVs are constantly running the same Mists of Pandaria trailer while people wait in queue.
