How to Obtain the Onyx Annulet Ring in Patch 10.0.7 (Guide)

Recommended Posts


The Onyx Annulet is a new Best-in-Slot ring coming in Patch 10.0.7. In the following guide, we're looking at how to obtain it and how it works.

UPDATE: Ion today said the ring will be an upgrade for pretty much everyone when Patch 10.0.7 launches, but Mythic raiders and other high-end players will eventually replace it with Mythic Aberrus trinkets in Patch 10.1. You can find a full recap of the Q&A here.

How to Get the Onyx Annulet

You must first finish the Forbidden Reach intro quests. They start in Valdrakken, where you must talk to Kazra at the Seat of Aspects and fly to the Forbidden Reach up to the point where you save Jeb and Tacha and meet them at the entrance to Zskera Vaults, The quest is named Exploring Our Past.


The follow-up quest Zskera Vault: Az requires you to explore the vault for the very first time.


Pathfinder Tacha will give you a quest named The Keys You Need and you'll receive your first 6 Zskera Vault Key Zskera Vault Keys. The keys come from completing content in the Forbidden Reach and are used to open doors in the Vault.


The main reason why you will run Zskera Vaults for rewards is the Onyx Annulet Onyx Annulet and Primordial Stones. At first, the number of keys will be limited, but as you gain more keys, you will be able to complete puzzles and progress through many doors.

Zskera Vaults are on a weekly reset and Zskera Vault Keys are BoA, so you can funnel them to your main if you have Level 70 alts.

To enter the Zskera Vaults, you must talk to Pathfinder Jeb.


When you first enter a vault, you must secure it by killing the NPC in the center.


On the ground during your first run, you will find an Unusual Ring, which starts a quest for the Onyx Annulet Onyx Annulet.


Anyway, back to Zskera Vaults. You will reach a room with many doors and multiple floors as you go down. The ground floor consists of 6 doors, each requiring 1 Zskera Vault Key to open.



However, you can climb a web rope to reach more floors.


The Vault has 3 floors each containing 8 doors. Each door contains an Elite NPC that must be defeated or a puzzle that you solve by opening other doors. The door can also contain chests with various rewards including Primordial Stones that you socket into the Onyx Annulet Onyx Annulet.


Your goal is to farm vault keys to open as many doors as possible every week.

Back to the Onyx Annulet Onyx Annulet! Now that you've been teleported out of the vault, return to Morquet Village to turn in the quest at Researcher Imareth.


For the follow-up quest Primordial Embellishment, you must collect Primordial Anvil Primordial Anvil and Primordial Jeweler's Kit Primordial Jeweler's Kit from the Zskera Vaults.

I feel like...to a newer level 70 this could be BiS...but for a raider/M+ grinder, that ring could become irrelevant fairly quickly. I do like the perks and they seem fun.

Yeah. For all the initial "WHY ARE THEY BRINGING BACK BORROWED POWER?!?!?!?!" outcry this basically just feels like Mechagon trinket 2.0. Cool, but not ultimate BiS forever.

I think this is basically a catch up ring that gives casuals something to play with.

Idk a few of those stones seem like they could proc quite often, making them kinda like a trinket effect that has no cd and procs a handful of times a min. We all know how strong trinkets can be, my 411 ragefeather does like 7 to 9mil dmg in a run for like 10% of my dmg. I feel ya 100% on not wanting to give up haste especially. That storm infused seems pretty strong crits can cause up to 3 enemies to take almost 10k lightning dmg. Then the one that turns fire dmg into chaos, they made that gem for a reason most likely because it will scale with dh mastery which will prob double or even triple the dmg output from it.

This is just something to help get alts caught up before season 2 takes off.  It's not Choregast, it's optional, and this has a better alternative of obtaining gems than domination shards in SL.  Just like the primal elemental storms; they are there, optional, and not required if wanting to gear an alt.

So it's like Torghast, but shorter if I get this right. If this amulet helps a little, that's fine, but I'm not going to get invested into it, whether it's the most optimal or not.

      Many class changes went live earlier this week week and we're looking how they affect the Mythic+ Tier List.
      The following post is based on statistics provided by Subcreation, a website that gathers various Mythic+ data from live servers. Please note that the tier list is biased toward the top end because it only looks at the top 100 keys per dungeon per affix and ignores keys below +16 and untimed runs.
      For the reasons mentioned above, the data presented here will always differ from the Mythic Tier Lists maintained by Petko.
      Data Reliability
      The data used in the post comes from Subcreation, a site maintained by Alcaras. Subcreation provides statistical analysis of Mythic+ dungeons, raids, and PvP in Shadowlands, and the data is provided via the Warcraft Logs API and Raider.io. If you'd like to support Subcreation, you can check out their Patreon.
      How the Data is Calculated
      The site looks at the top 100 keys per dungeon per affix across all regions and examines their raider.io scores. For each dungeon and specialization, the site takes the lower bound of a 95% confidence interval of the top 100 runs for each specialization. The site then averages these lower bounds, one per dungeon, to get an overall average lower bound for each spec, which is finally used to create the tier list.
      The site takes the lower bounds of the 95% confidence interval calculated and then clusters them into 6 buckets using the Ckmeans algorithm. You can find more information by reading the site's FAQ.
      Tanks, Healers, Melee, and Ranged are all on the same scale. They're just shown separately for easier comparison across roles.
      Mythic+ Tier List for Dragonflight Season 1: Week #16
      The specs are ranked based on their lb_ci which stands for the lower bound of a 95% confidence interval. If a certain tier is missing, it's not occupied by any specialization.
      The following tier list is for this week's affixes: Tyrannical, Sanguine, Explosive, Thundering.
      Tank Tier List
      Based on 3,199 runs, ranging in difficulty from +20 to +28.

      A funny "Too Hot to Handle" reference has been discovered in Zaralek Cavern in Patch 10.1.
      When you target and /kiss Fyrakk in Zaralek Cavern, you will receive the Too Hot to Handle debuff and suffer Fire damage for 10 seconds. The buff doesn't stack, so when you kiss Fyrakk multiple times, only the duration is refreshed to 10 seconds.
      Too Hot to Handle - Are you blushing, or is it just the 1 Fire damage being dealt every 1 sec?
      The "Too Hot to Handle" reference was discovered by MrGM. Fyrakk is one of the Incarnates that escaped after Raszageth's defeat.
