    Essences have very little bearing on being able to full clear a vision. The two things that make visions easy are cloak and elite/gift tech, otherwise you can easily clear a full vision with no essences.

    275 from Assaults
    up to 900 from Vision runs (by now you easily get 6 keys per week with the daily routine)
    350 from emissaries
    Warfront is not a given (once every 3 weeks)
    240 = 20 per raid boss on average
    230 from 1 m+10 weekly run
    175 from the pvp chest
    None from islands (I wonder why)
    Weekly effort for this should be way less than 10 hours
    Result is 2k+ per week, 4 essences.

    Yes, but it requires cloak+heroic visions. Which is even making it even more grindy.

    125+75x2+150+50x7 = 775 1½ essence.

    No lol that's the complete opposite of what the article says. 1 week per level 3 essence assuming you do the bare minimum.

    Great stuff. A good balance! I like it. Hopefully this sort of system will be avilable from scratch in Shadowlands

    Whoever thought Blizzard wouldn't turn the essence thing into a bs grind was fooling themselves. I gave up giving Blizzard the benefit of the doubt years ago. I've learned to just expect the worse because that's usually the case and be surprised when it turns out good. And to everyone saying 'oh boo hoo, you have to grind in an MMO, who would have thought' you're kidding yourself. It's literally the end of the expansion and the entire azerite system (you know, the literal centerpiece of the expansion) was awful and broken from the start. Who does it actually hurt if blizzard just let those had earned their essences get them for their alts without all the damn hoops and grind?

    People aren't moaning because they have to play their alt. They're moaning because they've done the crap before and they want to get into better/higher content faster on alts. God forbid now that the expansion is at an end, eh?

    So can you buy and trade this currency? Asking for a friend that only likes to play the content he enjoy...

    I do totally agree with your opinion.
    sadly... this scenario is very unlikely :-(

    Geez, thank you. Now I don't have to run my ass from the opposite side of the planet to the tank that can't move on the other side of the planet.

    Making a comment which made no sense


    And, I have been saying for some time, you don't really need bis essences, but now that they are this means I get actual bis from just playing. Just like old times. Do raids? Get bis essence and gear. Do dungeons? Get bis essence and gear. Do solo content like HV, get bis essence and guaranteed corrupted gear. Why thank you, I'll take it.

    Yeah, the sentence you quoted made no sense to me.

    Needing good essences for a full clear
