Updated 16 February with a tier list update now we have live data. Titanforging is dead. In its place, Corruption. Every season 4 piece of gear you get in 8.3 will have a chance to roll one of eighteen different “corruption affixes”. They range from stat increases to fun cooldown-reduction to huge damage procs. We won’t spend much time here looking at the Corruption system […]
Patch 8.3 will not go down in history as a hall of fame Druid patch. Our raid azerite is poor, a justified Mythic+ nerf takes ~2% off our raid throughput and the Disc / Glimmer front-runners were barely touched. More positively, our utility will see some use in Ny’alotha and the damage patterns suit Druid well. They also do a round of tuning after Heroic […]
Patch 8.3 adds The Formless Void, Unwavering Ward and Spirit of Preservation to our Essences collection along with a minor Essence slot. The rank threes appear to be time-gated in various ways so these might not feature heavily in the opening weeks of the raid but you’ll want to get started on them early. Recommended sets for each of the healing specs covered will be […]
An in-depth breakdown of how to build your Glimmer Paladin in 8.3. Includes information on Azerite, Essences, Corruption, Stats, Trinkets and much much more.
Healing trinkets in Eternal Palace were a blessing. Jellyweed and Deferred Sentence add incredible healing; Leviathan’s Lure and Aquipotent Nautilus put out excellent DPS and Font of Power was a fantastic stat stick (if a pain to use). We… won’t mention Za’qul’s Portal Key. Ny’alotha adds a lot of new trinkets including a two set with a seemingly massive set bonus. A lot of them are […]
Update: On the 19th November Glimmer was nerfed by an additional 12% on top of the target cap. It is discussed below. Glimmer of Light paladin in the Eternal Palace has been ultra powerful to the point where it quickly overshadowed other specs. We always knew nerfs were coming, but we weren’t sure what form they would take or if they would be significant […]
Essences are a rather complex system, with the full collection of forty+ items dropping from all over the game. The in-game tooltips can do a poor job of telling you what you actually need to do to pick up the next rank. We found it was much easier when you could look at them all in one place. They’re split up by role for convenience. […]
Way of the Crane is nearly here. Find out what it means for the future of Mistweaver Monk. We might cover some other Essences too along with how to get started in Nazjatar, and which new enchants we need.
8.2 is upon us. Find out which Essences are best, how to get started in Nazjatar, what the professions update means for you and how the new trinkets fare. Quick-fire FAQ included for all of those small questions that have been eating away at you.
You can find part one of the Essence article here and part two here. Today we’re going to lead with powerhouse The Ever Rising Tide and then for completions sake take a look at the final three which are mostly stat procs. All data is from the PTR and can change before Live but if they’re going to make changes they should really move that […]
