Echoes of Ny'alotha — Essence Currency
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.
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.
Finally, you can use them to buy extra 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 unlocked, you will be able to buy it alongside Polarized Azerite Slivershards and Regenerating Barrier of the Depths on alt characters.
