Daily Legion Heroic now rewards five Writhing Essence This week, many of us are trying to upgrade our 940 (or 910) Legendaries to 970. And if you’re one of us, there’s another source of Writhing Essence to pick up to make completing the upgrade easier: namely your first Heroic dungeon of the day. Just hotfixed: Completing your first Legion Heroic dungeon each day...




How to upgrade your Legendaries in WoW One of the features that came with Tomb of Sargeras was an upgrade to Legendaries: any Legendaries received since the raid released are ilevel 970, but that leaves our old Legendaries in desperate need of a little update. But our older Legendaries aren’t left out, as there’s a brand new quest to upgrade Legendary gear.  If you haven’t...

Patch 7.2.5’s Legendary class rings give you an extra talent Patch 7.2.5 will introduce several new Legendaries, including a set of class-specific rings — and each one gives you an extra talent specific to your class and spec. While that sounds great, you may want to wait before getting excited, because these rings aren’t perfect for everyone. But let’s get started with the basics. These...

What to do before patch 7.2.5 Patch 7.2.5 is hitting the live realms next week, but are you ready? Some of the patch’s biggest changes are class balancing and new (or changed) Legendaries, plus quality of life updates here and there. Though the patch features content additions like raid Timewalking and transmog competitions — neither of which you can really prepare for — there...

Spiritual Guidance: Set bonuses and legendaries in patch 7.2.5 The PTR has been hopping with updates and getting tweaks here and there, but it seems the big changes are in and here to stay while the specific numbers may change slightly. Tier 20 set bonuses have been on the PTR for a bit, which are exciting and getting more relevant the closer we get...




Blizzard details 7.2 Legendary item changes We’ve known for a long time that Blizzard intends to balance WoW’s Legendary items so players never feel disappointed when they get a Legendary drop. This means powerful Legendaries are getting nerfed while their less exciting brethren are buffed. The latest list of changes on the PTR may still not be final, but you’ll want...

Legendaries get a major overhaul on the PTR As promised, Blizzard has finally dropped their first major rework of Legendaries on the PTR. The initial idea was that some items would have just okay abilities while others would have highly coveted procs, but player outcry has proven that method to be unpopular. So now we get to see how current Legendaries are getting...



Is WoW becoming too much like Diablo? Legion has taken a lot of cues from Diablo — WoW’s World Quest system is an amped up version of Diablo’s Bounties, and WoW’s Legendary items have taken a decidedly Diablo-esque turn. The World Quest/Bounty system is just as fun in both games: they promise rewards to give you a reason to keep logging in. (Though,...

Did you get the legendary you need? I have a love-hate relationship with Legendary items in Legion. I’d go so far as to say it’s the system I enjoy the least and don’t want to see repeated the most. I understand what they were going for, but Diablo 3 style loot only works if you commit to it, as we saw originally...

Hunter Shoot solos Mythic Archimonde Color us impressed: expert soloer Shoot managed to kill Mythic Archimonde all on his own. (Or at least almost on his own. As a Hunter, he did have pets to help out as well as the usual assortment of NPCs that show up for the fight.) So how is this possible? A heck of a...

Have Legendaries lost their shininess? When Legendary items were announced for Legion along with Artifacts I, like many, was excited for these rare and powerful drops. I also appreciated the mechanism for attaining them: an ever-increasing chance at a drop that assured that eventually one would be mine. And when one finally did drop (during my very first boss kill...

Legendary Item drop rates clarified by WoW devs Community Manager Ornyx posted a summary of recent changes the devs made to Legendary Item drop rates and has also delved into additional tweaks they’ve made to improve the success rate for later drops. The recent improvements include increasing the chance of a Legendary dropping between patch 7.1 and patch 7.1.5. They’ve also been “steadily...

Changes to Nighthold trinkets coming tomorrow While everyone loves upping their ilevel, trinket drops in Nighthold have been a bit inconsistent. Some started out super powerful, while others just didn’t impress. The Convergence of Fates trinket, which has a chance on hit to reduce cooldown abilities, has already seen a huge nerf, with a recent hotfix reducing its proc rate for...

Are you ready for Patch 7.1.5? Ready or not, by the time you read this (if you’re on North American realms anyway) the patch will soon be deploying on servers. Patch 7.1.5 has a lot of class adjustments, Timewalking Mists of Pandaria dungeons, a whole rework to the Brawler’s Guild, the advent of the Micro-Holidays and more. There will be changes to...

Patch 7.1.5 coming to WoW on January 10 That’s right, everyone: patch 7.1.5 is only a few short days away. This mini-patch will be hitting the game next Tuesday, January 10 (or the 11th for European realms), just one week before the Nighthold raid goes live. Of course, this “mini” patch really isn’t that mini. It’s packed full of features, including: Class changes to...
