Icy Veins - Nighthold Guides
Our friends over at Icy Veins are finishing up their Nighthold guides, so be sure to take a look so that you are ready to go this week.



Legendary Item Upgrades
With the Nighthold release, you can now pick up the Touch of a Titan quest in Dalaran to start on the path to upgrading existing legendary items. New items will have a higher item level when they drop.

When the Nighthold opens next week, players who have acquired at least one Legion Legendary item will find a quest in Dalaran to upgrade a Legendary from item level 910 to 940. This quest involves collecting a number of Essences of Aman’thul, which can be found in the following locations:

  • Nighthold Raid Bosses
  • Weekly Mythic Keystone Cache
  • Emissary Bags
  • PvP Weekly Quests

Once you have completed the quest, you'll be given a Distilled Titan Essence, which can be consumed to upgrade a Legion Legendary item to level 940. The quest is repeatable, so you'll be able to earn as many Distilled Titan Essences as you need to upgrade any Legendaries you have.

Additionally, once the Nighthold is open, any new Legendaries you discover will already be item level 940. Note that this does not apply retroactively to Emissary Bags that you may already have in your inventory when the time comes. Only new bags earned after the Nighthold is open have the chance to reward an item level 940 Legendary.

Will it be available on all levels of NH?
These will drop in all difficulties of the Nighthold, LFR included.

WoWDB Addon Data Collection
Quickly populating the database with new additions is done with the help of many players. The more people that contribute data, the more accurate and quickly we can update the database.

To help out, just click here if you have Curse App already installed. You can confirm this worked by clicking the gear icon, going to the Addon options, and scrolling down to the bottom to see "Enable WoWDB Profiler".

When you are playing the addon will gather data and save it. When you are done playing, Curse App will see the game close and upload the collected data from the addon.

    I'm glad they mentioned Emissary Bags so I can make fun of all the nerds in my guild hoarding 50+ of the godforsaken things.

    the loot ilvl seems wrong considering the second half bosses drop +5 ilvl then previous an guldan +10

    Seeing this wall of purple left me feeling meh. Legion has killed loot for me. Couldn't give a shit about raid drops when most of my upgrades came from mythics, and the randomness of loot stats leaves me feeling like "yeah, but it's not the best it could be" 95% of the time...

    They don't drop retroactively. They will only be in bags that are obtained AFTER patch day so hoarding them won't help :P

    7.2 isn't for a while. We just had 7.1.5. Nighthold is technically part of 7.0 but it was introduced after 7.1.5.

    I moved it to individual boss pages instead, item levels for Gul'dan and a couple other bosses was incorrect, the individual boss pages are correct.

    Why would you punish players that loot their legendaries today instead of tomorrow, am I missing something?

    Because they had to name a day, and its tomorrow. if it was last week some people would be upset, if it was next week some people would be upset. I'm ok with legendaries not being upgraded, as long as the upgrade has a fair price.

    Both of you are incorrect... Emmissary Caches weren't changed on the PTR. We know for a fact that people who hoarded caches and opened them after patch day received NEW LEGENDARIES (for example I got Beast Master shoulders)... so its a fact that caches decide their loot table as they are opened not as they are looted. So you won't be able to laugh... you'll just stay in a corner seeing those 'nerds' getting 940 ilvl legendaries. Caches weren't change at all last patch so... yeah... people hoarding will benefit, like me

    If Essences of Aman’thul can drop in LFR why couldn't Corrupted Essence do so too?

    Gameplay vs Aesthetic. I believe their whole theme behind that row of skins, as mentioned at Blizzcon, is "organized" group play.

    And correct, tier gear will not be war/titanforged.
