Echoes of Ny'alotha — Essence Currency

Last updated on May 19, 2020 at 14:09 by Seksixeny 11 comments

Welcome to our Echoes of Ny'alotha guide, a new currency meant to allow you to farm Rank 3 Essences more easily on your alt characters. Here, you will find a detailed description of this new currency, where you can find it and what to buy with Echoes of Ny'alotha.

1.

What Are the Echoes of Ny'alotha

Echoes of Ny'alotha are a new currency in the Visions of N'Zoth content patch. They provide an alternate route towards the acquisition of Rank 3 Essences on alt characters, often allowing you to skip content you do not wish to engage with on that particular character.

Each Rank 3 Essence costs 2500 Echoes of Ny'alotha at MOTHER, in the Chamber of the Heart in Silithus.

You can also use them to buy specific Corruption effects which can then be enchanted into items without one, allowing you to optimize your character with no RNG involved.

Finally, you can use them to buy extra Vessel of Horrific Visions Icon Vessel of Horrific Visions and, thus, upgrade your cloak and augment gear with sockets faster. Because completing a vision alongside all side objectives grants 750 Echoes of Ny'alotha and buying a vessel costs 1750, the real cost of these is closer to 1000 Echoes, on average.

This currency is soulbound, and you are only able to buy Rank 3 Essences that you already have on at least one character. Make sure to log in first with the character that has the Rank 3 Essence you want, in order for the Essence to show up at MOTHER.

Also, most Essences only require that you have at least one Rank 3 Essence of that content type unlocked on a character already. For example, if you have Nazjatar's Tome of the Quickening Tides Icon Tome of the Quickening Tides unlocked, you will be able to buy it alongside Polarized Azerite Slivershards Icon Polarized Azerite Slivershards and Regenerating Barrier of the Depths Icon Regenerating Barrier of the Depths on alt characters.

Buying Specific Corruption Powers with Echoes of Ny'alotha

You can buy a specific Corruption for your character (Preserved Contaminant) at MOTHER in the Chamber of the Heart in Silithus. The cost increases alongside the corruption cost of the effect, but not linearly.

For example, the +10 corruption Rank 1 Masterful Icon Masterful costs 3000 Echoes, while the +75 corruption Rank 3 Twilight Devastation Icon Twilight Devastation costs 15000 Echoes.

The corruption powers you can buy change twice per week, at the same time as Assaults: Friday for US players and Saturday for EU players.

Make sure to check our class guides and their corruption pages in order to learn what to buy and how to best optimize your corruption powers!
