Tides of Vengeance Arrives Starting December 11

Mythic Cache Next Week has Titan Residuum

Immediately after the Tides of Vengeance update goes live with scheduled maintenance in each region, you’ll now be able to target specific kinds of Azerite armor by earning Titan Residuum, which can be used to purchase Azerite armor from everyone’s favorite purveyor of exquisite furnishings: Thaumaturge Vashreen, who can be found alongside his fellow ethereals in either Boralus or Dazar’alor.

In the weekly cache, you’ll now receive an amount of Titan Residuum in addition to your weekly item. Completing higher-level Keystones will award greater amounts of Titan Residuum from your weekly cache. Scrapping or disenchanting new epic-quality Azerite gear obtained in Tides of Vengeance (from any source) also provides Titan Residuum, with more powerful items yielding more Residuum.

After the update goes live, your weekly cache will contain Titan Residuum, and will not have a chance to contain a piece of Azerite Armor. We suggest you complete at least one Mythic Keystone dungeon before the update to make sure that you earn Titan Residuum when you open your cache after the update.

There isn’t a cap on how much Titan Residuum you can hold, and we do not plan to reset Titan Residuum at the start of Season 2. When Season 2 begins, the vendor will offer higher item-level pieces (iLvl 400 or 415) at significantly higher costs than the Season 1 items. Also at that time, the weekly Mythic Keystone cache will begin rewarding proportionally more Residuum, and new iLvl 400+ Azerite armor will yield more Residuum when scrapped or disenchanted.
See you in the dungeons!

Yes. Completing Mythic Keystones higher than level 10 will yield more Residuum for each additional level, with diminishing returns.

    Don't care, haven't done a single Mythic+ or Raid in weeks. BFA is just garbage boring expansion.

    Will the PvP chest contain Residuum? Like, what on earth happened to Blizzard. Their systems used to be highly transparent and thoroughly explained, since I came back at the end of Legion, I've been noticing a fuckton of retarded tooltips that are not at all helpful.

    Example #1: Mortal Strike reduces healing received. Cool. HOW MUCH?!

    Example #2: Defensive Stance reduces damage taken/done. What does Battle Stance do? Not even in the spellbook, I had to figure it out on my own.

    Example #3: Have fun fucking deciphering how Azerite traits and some trinkets act in PvP with all the continuous nerfs that are nowhere to be seen on the tooltip. Certain abilities were axed in PvP to be up to 50% less useful. But unless you dig through patch notes, there is no way for you to find out.

    Lazy.

    I cannot even imagine why did blizzard left those players in the dark who don't read every little post to decipher the changes about the game...

    M+ is dying a fast death already, so lets tie the new Azerite currency to a system that is failing , that will surly bring the players back! JEsus fucking Christ, fucking Fire Ion and these Devs already and hire the homeless guys living behind Blizzard HQ. It cant be worse then what this game has now

    That’s kind of your fault for making it boring if you’re not doing content then, isn’t it.

    Time to log out, go outside for a walk and then get a good night's sleep.

    Might as well make azerite armor non-tradeable again, gonna avoid people begging for your drops that you won't be trading anyway.

    Yeah, this is what that I was focusing on for the majority of my time reading this update. Even if a guildie/friend, why give a piece away that is going to pay for an upgrade you will need later (and the only aspect of this system that is not complete RNG).

    Guess it's an option later...after your friend/guildie no longer needs that piece of gear. Rando-giveaway?

    That guy misses nothing. I ran that garbage content for 5 weeks and I'm bored to death with it. I can barely even log in once a week now just for the stupid chest. They're so boring. I can't even imagine doing them with a pug of filthy random casuals lol. I'm just glad I have my guild. As for the raids, please, even a scrub can finish mythic nowadays.

    Dont start farming these yet, this is gonna be exactly like the legendary currency in legion: Before season 2 youll get rewarded 1x titan Residuun per cache/scrap/de, then after season 2 youll get rewarded 100x titan residuun and azerite will cost 1000x more too.

    They removed Advanced Tooltips from the menu. If you run /console UberTooltips 1 it should turn it back on so you can see the exact values.

    Not that I disagree with you, but GW2 has what new content?

    I'd like an item that I can use to change traits on my current gear. That way, gear from raids and dungeons could actually be useful.

    If you don’t find it interesting then how is that Blizzards fault? There are plenty of people who do find it interesting and enjoy it still. The game has plenty of content beyond mythics and raiding, but people choose not to do it and then blame blizzard for their boredom and their lack of interest.

    I think its a good solution for people who do M+... However...

    what about the people that REALLY play the game for M+... Chances are they have this gear already..

    this is not really an enhancement, it is more of a solution to get people to do more M+.. But, most players just do the M+ for the weekly chest, which as we all know tends to give the SAME gear all the time rofl.

In terms of AP and good gear, you cant farm, only pray for TF in m+ or pvp. Im fine with not being able to farm bisgear first week but when they cannot even give the content people consider fun a decent AP reward, i dont know. You can farm cosmetics, toys and partially AP through the content people greatly dislike (WQs, Islands) but m+ and pvp gives close to nothing in that regard. Atleast legion had decent AP rewards for the stuff people actually enjoyed farming. Literally Zero players enjoy farming Islands. Sure a few enjoy a few, but farming? Noone.

    2. With PL, people will be even more likely to keep/not even loot a duplicate azerite piece, just so they dont have to trade and later can scrap it.
    You can farm it some though, by doing m0, right? That's epic quality azerite pieces. It's a very random cap per week though. We'll see how it turns out, you also get TR from weekly chest which scales with completed m+. I assume that means a +14 gives more TR than a +10.
