Patch 9.2: primo sguardo ai set di classe e alla nuova cintura leggendaria

Scritto da Davide "Grallen" Fontemaggi - 20 Novembre 2021 alle 17:00

La patch 9.2 Fine dell’Eternità è stata ufficialmente annunciata, e tra le novità c’è il gradito ritorno dei tier set di classe, tanto chiesti dalla community in questi ultimi anni.

Il Community Manager Kaivax ha rilasciato un’anteprima sul funzionamento dei set di classe, mostrando anche i bonus set per Cacciatore, Paladino e Druido (potete trovare tutti i poteri in questa pagina di mmo champion) e in sintesi:

  • I set di classe saranno ottenibili principalmente nell’incursione Sepolcro dei Primi ma si potrà, grazie allo sblocco del Creation Catalyst, creare i pezzi del set attraverso l’equipaggiamento preso da mitiche+, PvP e nella nuova zona Zereth Mortis.
  • Come i vecchi set di classe, occuperanno gli slot di elmo, spalle, petto, guanti e piedi ed avranno due poteri, il primo sbloccabile con due pezzi e il secondo sbloccabile con quattro.

Altra novità interessante è il poter equipaggiare due leggendari nella patch 9.2, ma uno di questi dovrà essere necessariamente il leggendario della congrega. Onde evitare di far forgiare quattro leggendari diversi, ci basterà ottenere la cintura leggendaria dai Enlightened Brokers a Zereth Mortis, che avrà la particolarità di cambiare potere leggendario a seconda della congrega della quale si fa parte.

Vi lasciamo con la nostra pagina spoiler, l’anteprima della patch 9.2 e con il bluepost originale per dare uno sguardo a tutti i dettagli.

Vi intrigano queste novità?

Players will harness the power of the First Ones by collecting a variety of new gear in Eternity’s End. Class armor sets are making their return in Eternity’s End, and this time, you’ll obtain them from three sources: bosses in the new Sepulcher of the First Ones raid, the Great Vault (via all activities – raiding, Mythic+, and PvP), and from the forthcoming Creation Catalyst. In Eternity’s End, you’ll also discover a new Runecarving power that lets you harness the effects of your covenant Runecarving power in conjunction with an existing Shadowlands legendary to slay your foes or heal your allies.

Progenitor Armor Set

The Progenitor armor set will grant your character new abilities based on your specialization, and includes a helm, shoulders, chest, gauntlets, and leggings with 2 set bonuses. The first set bonus is unlocked when two set pieces are equipped, and the second bonus is unlocked when four set pieces are equipped. Here are some examples:

  • Hunter (Beast Mastery)
    • 2-piece – Your Kill Command critical strike chance is increased for each stack of Frenzy your pet has.
    • 4-piece – Kill Command critical hits increase the damage and cooldown reduction of your next Cobra Shot.
  • Paladin (Protection)
    • 2-piece – Casting Shield of the Righteous grants you a stacking increase to your Block chance.
    • 4-piece – Blocking an attack has a chance to cast Judgment at your attacker.
  • Druid (Restoration)
    • 2-piece – Swiftmend heals an additional amount for each periodic healing effect on the target.
    • 4-piece – Swiftmend heals nearby allies for a percentage of its healing done.

Legendaries

You’ll meet the Enlightened Brokers in Zereth Mortis and become allies with them to be able to obtain a new Legendary belt empowered with your covenant’s Runecarving Effect. The unique characteristic of this new Legendary belt is that your Runecarving Effect will switch freely alongside your character whenever swapping covenants. There’s no need to craft a new Legendary Belt for each covenant. The Legendary belt will match the look of your class’s Progenitor armor set and can be equipped alongside another Shadowlands Legendary in a different armor slot, giving you two powerful legendary effects to boost your power. If you’d like to craft the new covenant-swapping Runecarving Effect on a different armor slot, a new Runecarving Memory will let you do so.

  • Note: In order to equip two legendary items, one must be either the Legendary belt or another armor slot imbued with the new Runecarving Memory.

All legendaries can now be upgraded with Cosmic Flux, a new currency inspired by lessons learned from Echoes of Ny’alotha in Battle for Azeroth. Cosmic Flux will be rewarded from a variety of activities in Shadowlands Season 3, such as defeating raid bosses, PvP, Mythic+, Torghast, Tower of the Damned, and World Quests.

Creation Catalyst

Once players fully uncover the secrets of the First Ones, the Creation Catalyst will become available. This will serve to help anyone who’s having bad luck on a particular armor slot, or to help alts quickly catch up later in the patch. The Creation Catalyst will use Cosmic Flux in combination with an appropriate non-set armor piece to create a Progenitor armor piece in that armor slot of the same item level. The armor you transform can be obtained from PvP, Mythic+, or other new Eternity’s End content.

For example: The Great Vault rewards an ilvl 265 non-set chest piece. Once the Creation Catalyst is unlocked and enough Cosmic Flux has been collected, this can be used to make an ilvl 265 Progenitor armor piece that activates the set bonus.

  • Note: If you earn a non-set armor piece before the Creation Catalyst is unlocked, we recommend hanging on to it in case you want to convert it later.

We’ll see you in Zereth Mortis!
