This is a living document and is prone to change. Consider it a public draft to share information as early as possible. The best picks from the current vendor are likely to be Expedient and Ineffable Truth rank 1 (depending on your spec) but do read below. QE Live has a large update coming to make these decisions much easier. Which piece do I […]
Updated 13 March with additional information 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 itself so if this is the first […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
We continue the Essences article series with part 2 featuring Vision of Perfection, Conflict & Strife and Crucible of Flame. Fistweaving, Paladins with 40% wings uptime and so much Tranquility it’ll feel like Uldir. Read more inside.
8.2 adds a new type of power in Azerite Essences. A new path in the Heart of Azeroth itself. Read through an in-depth look at the first half of the healing Essences.
Crucible of Storms items all come with a special effect of some kind, keeping the loot interesting and unique. We’re going to take a look at all of the healer gear and judge which are worth wearing and which still need work before the patch goes live. All healing specs welcome.
Battle for Dazar’alor adds four new healing trinket and at the moment they’re a big ol’ mixed bag. Let’s look at each in more detail.
Antorus: The Burning Throne adds 7 new healing trinkets across 11 bosses and there’s plenty of variety; however, our options might be limited due to the power of the Pantheon trinkets that drop off Argus himself (herself? Itself?). Blizzard have otherwise done a fantastic job balancing the Antorus trinkets and almost all of them are at least ‘pretty good’. Weak Auras are included where advantageous.
