    Hello and welcome to a Shadowlands Zazzyfraz Thread. :PeepoGlad:
    Patch 9.2.5 brings Fated Raids, increased ilvls, and new Mythic Keystone dungeon rotation. When I thought 9.2 S3 was the last season before 60 twinking, I made a guide here: https://xpoff.com/threads/level-60-shadowlands-9-2-guide.97306/

    Things are almost coming to an end in this expansion, so it is time to begin preparing for level 60 to be the "non-expansion-enabled-paid-account":Kapp: Twinking Level Cap. This is generally a smaller, more in-game community oriented bracket. The bracket usually will end up small enough for 1-3 games at a time at peak times, and longer 5-20 min queues for off hours, and generally you'll face the same twinks and random queuers at 60 within 1 game. Many players have played the same class for years, and gear and skill are in a nice balance, usually compounding each-others value. Perfect fit for a lot of people who twink.

    For PvP, it is an XP-On, account status level cap bracket. This means that we queue xpon, with 60 as our natural cap, and play with XP-On levelers who happen to be exactly 60, and other XP-On, 60 capped Shadowlands Account Players.

    For PvE, it's possible to group up with no experience reduction for party members.

    In BfA, PVE 50's were very strong, scaling well with their high ilvl from end game pve content, and full sockets. Certain classes could boost 4 others in leveling dungeons that scaled very low, such as Freehold starting at level 10. 50 was also the cap for the Party Sync system, so when a 50 twink used Party Sync to do nearly any legacy content, they remained unscaled and kept their relative power compared to the base template. Nothing at all is known yet about what will happen to shadowlands in 10.0. If it becomes the new Party Pync cap, and it's content is opened to more levels, the 60 twink becomes an attractive PvE level. But if its kept to just 10 levels of scaling, it would be disspointing compared to 50 syncing.

    The Great Vault
    In Shadowlands, there is a weekly loot cache of up to 9 items, based on your previous weeks' activities. This is the only source of 304 Dungeon Gear. The PVP vault loot is the only source of PVP items with Speed/Leech/Avoidance. Opening the Great Vault once is a criteria of a quest that rewards a Runecarver Legendary Memory, though you'll be able to obtain it via other source as well. https://www.wowhead.com/quest=62457/the-great-vault
    vault.png
    In 9.2, items rewarded from the Great Vault have a chance to be a tier set item.
    vaulttier.PNG
    You may choose to obtain 2/4/6 https://www.wowhead.com/item=199202/attendants-token-of-merit instead of an item, depending on how many vault options were unlocked (1/2/3). This can be spent on various currency/rep/BoA renown from https://www.wowhead.com/npc=177829/kotul. More importantly, it can be used to buy
    https://www.wowhead.com/item=199112/fated-matter-fractalizer, which is currently the ONLY way to manually add a socket to a season 4 shadowlands item. This costs 6 tokens, meaning you can obtain 2 sockets per week. This can be obtained with minimal effort in LFR raids.


    Tier Sets:
    https://www.wowhead.com/guides/2-4-set-bonuses-tier-gear-sepulcher-first-ones-tier-shadowlands
    Class 4-pc tier sets are back. Tier pieces are obtained via a few ways.
    The items drop from Sepulcher of the First Ones raid.

    Any Great Vault item reward has a chance to be a Tier set item.

    Creation Catalyst (unlocked via chapter 4 of zereth campaign) is a system used to convert any S4 item to a "tier item" for https://www.wowhead.com/currency=2009/cosmic-flux currency. Items converted keep any tertiary bonus', socktets, and any pvp scaling bonus effects, but will convert into the tier set item per slot of the same ilvl, with its according stats..

    You may end up with a 298ilvl 2100 upgraded "PvP-bonus" set of tier which will be equal to heroic raid "end boss" loot in PvE but scale to 311ilvl in PvP, and a 304ilvl set of tier obtained from raid or M+ for PvE. Tier set off-pieces without set-bonus' are included this patch, only obtainable via using the Creation Catalyst on belt/bracers/boots/capes/rings. These are useful for PvPers interested in obtaining pvp scaling items with different stats, than those available from conquest gear.​
    1051067.jpg

    Cosmic Flux:
    The main power system currency of 9.2 content. Earned from most content, even looting chests in Zereth Mortis.
    https://www.wowhead.com/currency=2009/cosmic-flux is used to:
    Catalyze items with the creation catalyst
    Buy https://www.wowhead.com/item=191701/bag-of-explored-souls, to skip torghast for legendary crafting
    Buy https://www.wowhead.com/item=190644/vessel-of-profound-possibilities once per toon for 10000 flux
    2000 Flux to upgrade legendary from r6 to r7
    Send alts flux with https://www.wowhead.com/item=198449/pouch-of-prodigious-wonders
    Directly purchase some "raid-source" Legendary Memories from https://www.wowhead.com/npc=187651/rendle


    PVP GEAR:
    In SL PvP gear scales in PvP content, just like Warlords of Draenor PvP gear did. This ilvl scaling is very high, PvP gear outpaces PvE gear by 1800 rating or lower. Most pvpers will be in full PvP gear, only with PvE gear if they are pushing Mythic content early on in the patch, or are pushing PvE as a late patch player whos only got honor gear or worse, to compliment gearing up Asap.

    In addition to pvp gears' generous scaling in pvp combat and war mode, all PvP Trinkets in Shadowlands come with a 2-Set Equip Bonus, that is active when paired with any other Shadowlands PvP Trinket.
    It is unknown if PVPgears' bonus effects will be active post-10.0

    https://www.wowhead.com/item=186980/unchained-gladiators-shackles?ilvl=259
    is gf'd from season 2. it has main stat and deals damage, unlike the s3/4 "maledict trinket". A squish could make it viable again.

    "Eternal Aspirant" rare Honor Gear 9.2
    Rank 1 PVE: 229ilvl PVP: 255ilvl
    Rank 2 PVE: 236ilvl PVP: 268ilvl

    Rank 5 PVE: 255ilvl PVP: 278ilvl
    Rank 6 PVE: 262lvl PVP: 281ilvl
    Rank 7 PVE: 268ilvl PVP: 285ilvl
    Rank 7's 259ilvl is the same as end boss Normal Fated Raid.


    "Eternal Gladiator" epic Conquest Gear 9.2
    [​IMG] Conquest currency can be earned via weekly PVP quests, winning Rated PVP, and Winning unrated PVP, and via 2 one-time quests in Ashran and Wintergrasp. Your first daily win of each pvp function will reward increased Conquest.​

    Back/Wrist/Rings cost 525
    Shoulders/Hands/Waist/Feet cost 700
    Head/Chest/Legs cost 875
    Trinkets cost 525 and 700
    One-Hand Weapons cost 1,350
    Off-Hands/Amulets cost 450
    Two-Hand Weapons cost 1,800


    You can get 1 random conquest item, via up to 3 items offered from your weekly vault if you complete the Rated PvP criteria. You dont have to win any games, just earn honor via rated PvP.
    THE GREAT VAULT IS THE ONLY SOURCE OF CONQUEST PVP ITEMS WITH SPEED/LEECH/AVOIDANCE/SOCKET.

    If you are planning on obtaining 1000-2100 upgraded PVP gear for PVP twinking:
    Your biggest goal should be to complete the honor requirement for 3 pvp item options from the vault every week, to farm tertiary stats, especially on tier set slots.

    It's safe to assume once the 10.0 prepatch ends, you wont be able to get any of this gear, because you'll have no conquest sources anymore. Just like BfA PvP Azerite Gear with unique traits, and all other epic Conquest PvP Gear (with it's higher ilvl than any obtainable gear from pvp post 8.3) such as on use trinkets. (Ex: BfA Maledict/Breech/Spite)

Also available is 2000 M+ Rating for Keystone Master, which will allow you to upgrade any gear from Mythic Shadowlands Dungeons, and any gear from Legion Timewalking Mythic Keystones End Chest items up to Rank 12/298ilvl, with Valor Points. It is unknown if you will be able to collect Valor Points as a 60 post-Shadowlands.

    9.2.5 Fated Raids:
    In Shadowlands Season 4, one raid each week become Fated, dropping loot of a higher item level and scaling its difficulty. At the end of the season there will be no rotation, all 3 will be Fated at the same time. These Fated raids will have a Fated affix, which may change some strategies on the bosses! When a raid is Fated, its related world boss will be Fated and drop 285ilvl.

    IT IS UNKNOWN IF RAIDS WILL BE FATED AFTER THE DRAGONFLIGHT PRE-PATCH ENDS. THERE ARE ACHIEVEMENTS ATTACTHED TO THEM WITH VANITY REWARDS THAT MENTION COMPLETION "During Season 4", SO IT IS VERY POSSIBLE THAT FATED RAID LOOT BECOMES GF'D IN DF.

    A vendor will be available that sells all SL Raid special effect items, trinkets, and weapons, at normal Fated ilvl. You will be able to buy 3 items per toon from this vendor with https://www.wowhead.com/item=192466/puzzling-cartel-dinar, upon comletion of boss kill quests such as https://www.wowhead.com/quest=66648/crossing-fate. These can be completed in LFR.

    Killing Fated Heroic/Mythic Raid bosses will award currency to combine into an upgrade item. This will allow you to upgrade any Fated Raid item, to Heroic, or Mythic, if you are able to farm 20 boss kills of that difficulty. In combination with the 3x Dinar, a raider should be able to guarantee that they recieve their 3 most wanted Fated Raid items, at the ilvl of the content that they raid, Regardless of individual boss progression, or needing to loot specific items.

If you have a non-fated version it can be upgraded to Fated with https://www.wowhead.com/item=199181/tips-of-penitent-steel#, which drops off Fated Sylvanas, or purchasable for 1 Dinar. You can upgrade the bow to Heroic or Mythic as well with the 2 Creation Impetus items.

You will receive a 265ilvl belt with this covenant legendary memory for free from ZM chapter 7.

    Due to the 291ilvl max of Legendaries, for 9.2.7 you will want to have your 2 on jewelery slots if possible. And in 10.0, you will very likely not use any legendary item in instanced PvP.

    Rank 1-6 Legendary crafting is done via running Torghast/Covenant Assaults/Follower Missions for Soul Ash/Soul Cinder currency and also obtaining a crafted Base item.
    Rank 7 is obtained via 2000 https://www.wowhead.com/currency=2009/cosmic-flux, a 9.2 patch currency obtained from many activities.

    It should be assumed that these shadowlands legendaries will not work in 10.0 instanced pvp, Just like legion, wearing 2 of them with no effect, just for their power as high ilvl items. It's very possible they could be active in other content, for PvE/WorldPVP.


    Renown/Soulbinds/Conduits
    Renown

    Getting level 59 renown gets you 10% stamina with your current active covenant. its a gamble if these stamina gains will be active in 10.0 instanced pvp, but its 9.1 content so there's no real way you'll not get it at some point. Renown Progression ended with rank 80, in 9.1 patch.
    Please see these 2 wowhead guides below for information on Renown

    https://www.wowhead.com/guides/how-to-catch-up-on-renown-in-shadowlands

    Soulbinds
    Soulbinding is a new system of progression in the Shadowlands expansion in which players who join a Covenant will be able to bind themselves to one of its members, sharing some of their power through an artifact-like talent tree. Each of the different Covenants has three options to choose from, with each Soulbind offering different bonuses, for a total of twelve different trees of progression across the four covenants. Conduits add further customization to those Soulbind trees, allowing players to fill empty sockets in the trees with bonuses of their choosing. (from wowhead author Paryah)
    See this wowhead guide below for in-depth information on Soulbinds
    https://www.wowhead.com/guides/soulbinds-conduits-covenants-shadowlands

    Conduits
    Conduits are items which allow an additional level of customization to your Soulbind with bonuses that are specific to your class and or spec. They are categorized into three types: Potency (Throughput), Endurance (Survival), and Finesse (Utility). Conduits have item level which allows you to upgrade the power of your Conduits.
    Conduits can be acquired as rewards from playing max level content: Dungeons, PvP, Raids, Reputations, World Quests, etc. Most Conduits will be available from more than one source, allowing flexibility of acquisition across content types. Conduits drop as personal loot and drop separately from the loot table.


    The max ilvl of conduits in 9.2.5 is 278. For 10000 Cosmic Flux, https://www.wowhead.com/item=190644/vessel-of-profound-possibilities can be purchased, to instantly max out conduit progression.
    Below is a wowhead guide on Conduits.

    It is extremely likely the Soulbind/Conduit/Renown systems will be disabled in level 60 10.0 content, and instanced pvp in 10.0. It could be possible for the Power systems to be active in SL PVE Dungeon/Raid/World content, or possibly Legacy Party Sync content.

    yes, the patch will likely go on till early november.
    the prepatch will likely last 1 month, and have a season pause. you might be able to obtain mythic keystone and conquest gear during this prepatch, but being able to still get rating to upgrade conquest gear is not something i would rely on

    first look at the SL beta (day 1), with my copied 60. this is likely a snapshot of the week of content before the first SL raid opens up (season 1 start). it shouldnt be taken as a prediction of anything related to the prepatch. its likely any valid prepatch predictions will come via the PTR realms, when the prepatch is nearly upon us.

    -all raids are fated (304/311 ilvl) this is great news if this stays. being able to gear from all raids, 30+ bosses weekly of a variety of max ilvl loot, is good for the bracket, and horrible if GFd(278/285max obtainable post SL then...). in addition, the dinar vendors are still present, and quest to obtain dinar is still in my quest log(sketchy).

    -all SL legendaries and covenant related spells and procs, are disabled outside of SL content. including orgrimmar, and random bg/arena

    -pvp gear still has active green text "scales to X ilvl in pvp combat or warmode", and it is working in skirmish arena

    -pvp trinkets still have a 2-set bonus "increase main stat 175 and stamina 300 in pvp combat or warmode", and it is working in skirmish arena

    -s3/s4 tier sets are working in skirmish arena and likely bg. warlock instant bolted me

    -theres no way to earn conquest to buy epics. the items are on the vendor still for conquest currency.

    -you cannot interact with the great vault in any way, meaning no more attendants tokens will be obtained. the attendants token vendor items, and also keystones are still present in this beta version

    -unrated solo shuffle, and brawl are not available for a 60 with dragonflight. (could be for those without, like how 50 has brawl. maybe shuffle queue will work for us this time now that the content is given by the base xpak.)

    -calling daily quests, still give valor, and upgrading UI for valor and pvp still function. this is likely to change

    -character stat scaling, health values, gear ilvl and stat amount are all unchanged. 100k hp twinks

    DF prepatch is now on the PTR, so there's a feeling of being near the end of any changes or tuning for 60.




    prepatch.PNG


    right away we notice that no activity on this ptr build awards any conquest. this could change, maybe blizzard lets people farm some conquest for 3-4 weeks to buy some leveling epics. nothing on the vendors is changed, just the ability to get conquest.

    the raids are still fated in dungeon journal, and the dinar vendors and quest are present, just like beta.
    you can use the vault. you cant on beta. perhaps with some rated pvp youll still be able to collect a great vault reward, allowing a player to obtain a couple unrated Conquest Gladiator Pvp items (youd want a trinket) via the vault. might still be able to get socket adding item via vault

    if you cant farm conq, youre stuck with 268|285 honor gear/fated raiding/couple weeks of M+ for prepatch gearing, unless you decide to play during S4/9.2.7 to get 1800/2000


    legendaries and cov related powers are disabled already outside SL zones


    the season label clearly states "Off Season", numbers are greyed out, and gear upgrading is based off of Last Season High. if you stalled on finishing gear, maybe youll be able to finish some upgrades. you might even be able to queue 2100+ brackets with no fear of rating loss while looking for a weekly win to be eligible to upgrade

    no idea on m+ score and valor on prepatch ptr

    Blizzard has posted a blog post about collectibles that are going away prepatch/xpak release.
    https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/n...-do-in-the-shadowlands-when-youre-mostly-dead

    https://www.wowhead.com/news/blizza...ragonflight-pre-patch-and-dragonflight-328872

    -it seems like all 3 raids will be fated during the prepatch, and likely throughout the rest of Dragonflight “Once the Dragonflight pre-expansion update arrives, all Shadowlands raids will become Fated for the rest of the expansion.”

    -mythic+ cosmetic rewards are unobtainable at prepatch launch, unknown if there will be mythic keystones

    -gladiator, 2100 enchant, and 1800 sets go away at prepatch launch. Unknown if there is currency, and gear upgrading during prepatch.
