This is more or less the Warlords version of
, upgrading cheap catchup items from just above Dungeon ilvl to just below Normal raid ilvl.
Unlike on the Timeless Isle, while there are weapon tokens available this time, there doesn't currently seem to be
Doesn't it drop from rares ?
There isn't an additional bonus level if you use it on a upgraded epic drop 675 Baleful item.
Just to clarify given the price, is the fragment used on the token (e.g.
) or on the item created from that token (e.g.
)? Or can it be used on either?
Does this work on weapons?
Unfortunately, these can not drop from the mobs in Tanaan, with Burden of Eternity, you could loot one here and there. This can only be purchased for 20 000 Apexis Crystals. Meh :/
Great upgrade from an iLvL 650 to 695!
Can anyone tell me if it can be used on rings?
Hotfixed to be Bind to Battle.net Account.
Just had one of these drop from Commander Org'mok despite the fact that it doesnt appear in his loot table. Was a nice surprise, also got Org Moks riding chaps and a pair of Baleful Treads from the kill.
It would now seem these have a low chance to be looted from rares (that are eligible for loot) and elites in Tanaan and is awarded as personal loot regardless of the loot setting as of the 6.2 hotfix which made them BoA as well.
Update: They now also have a chance to drop from
as of the recent hotfix to the call to arms rewards in random heroics that also increased the amount of baleful tokens and gold from satchels.
Can we have clarification on this, I was in a group to kill Varyx and a druid ally in party looted this.
Just looted one today, July 3 and the item is still soul bound.
Edit: Logged in later to find it Account-bound as advertised.
Just dropped it from Captain Ironbeard.
So i just used one to upgrade my weapon , what i saw is that it doesnt remove the enchant , i had bleeding hollow on it and when i did the upgrade the enchant stayed , so dont worry about enchanting go ahead !
I had one of these drop from Varyx the Damned. So either there's a teeny, tiny chance to get them from rares, or only from him? Not sure because I've looked everywhere and nothing says it can be a drop!
EDIT: Ok so apparently they have a tiny chance to drop from all rares. It's like the Burden of Eternity back on Timeless Isle :)
Dropped for me from
and also some other rare in the jungles which I don't remember his name earlier this patch ...
Not sure why its not listed but apperently it can drop from all rares.
There is Low chance to drop from Rare elites in Tanaan!
Dropped off Varyx the Damned.
I was in an apexis farm group at Iron Front and pretty sure I saw a few people who got these off just regular mobs.
As people have mentioned on here, there is definitely a low % chance to get these from any Elite or Rare in Tanaan. Had a pug for Throne of Kil'jaeden get one off one of the Elite Felguards in the area. I managed to get one today off of the Felbound Wolf Rare at the Temple of Sha'naar.
dropped for me from minor elite in Iron Front and i think it was BoA.
NEVER buy anything else
, BUT THIS from the Apexis Vendor!
Among the things offered to you, you have a choice of various baleful tokens, a couple of toys and mounts, and this awesome thing, for 20,000 crystals (easier to farm than ever),
that could upgrade a Baleful Token item, of EITHER 650 to 675 instantly to its level 695 variant!
No strings attached!
After my third day of Apexis grinding in Tanaan,
I just realized that Baleful Token gear by which to upgrade from, practically drops from any rare, and for ANY slot.
Even trinkets, belts, head items have a baleful token for it.
So when trying to catch up on gear with a fresh alt, just kill all the rares with a LFG group, roll the tokens, and then save your Apexis crystals to 20,000 so you can insta-upgrade it to a 695 iLevel equivalent.
Today I did everything but the Bleeding the Bleeding Hollow Bonus Objective. I am already at 12,000 Apexis Crystals, and probably will have another 695 iLevel piece tomorrow.
But first, let me bang my head against a wall or something for disenchanting all those baleful items four days ago!
Did these get hotfixed back to being bop? I bought one today and was unable to send it to an alt. I've no use for tens of thousands of apexis crystals on my main, was nice being able to gear up my alts a bit.
Apparently was a strange bug, after relogging they're back to BoA.
I can confirm that
(will post a screenshot later on) this can drop from Rares aswell, i will also contact a GM for extra prove!(##RESPBREAK##)520##DELIM##Rankkor##DELIM##
This dropped for me last night (13/7/2015) as personal loot from the Night Watcher in Tanaan along with a Baleful token for a ring.
Does anyone know if you can use it on a 695 iLVL to go up higher? My friend accidentally almost used it on his 695 chest piece and it acted like it was going through with the cast bar but he moved in time to stop it.
This is not sold by Dawn-Seeker Krisek but by Ravenspeaker Thelnaas who stands next to him. Don't know if it was changed but that way as of today.
If you are looking to calculate the stats that an upgrade will give you (since the items with double stats have a range they can be), the factor that the stats increase by is ~.522 (or 52.2%) going from 650 baleful to 695, and ~.204 (or 20.4%) going from 675 baleful to 695.
As an example here are the stats that a baleful "peerless" spire could be.
650 peerless weapon
1154 spell power
675 peerless weapon
1455 spell power
695 peerless weapon
1753 spell power
So, to see the crit on something that rolled say, 135 crit and 110 mastery at 650: 135 crit x .522 = 70.47 increase going to 695 empowered, so ~205 crit.
Some advice on how to spend these:
The most efficient use is on 650 gear first.
The token upgrades your item directly to 695 - regardless of existing level - so a blue piece has
more to gain.
stat combination and every class/spec has their priorities. Try to save these tokens for items whose secondary stat combination is in your top four at least.
Hold onto any 650 gear you replace with a 675
the 650 has better secondary stats than the 675. When it comes time for you to upgrade that slot, the result will be better.
When choosing what to upgrade next there are two ways to look at it. You could choose the item with the best second stats on it
you could go with the item that has the most primary stats on it and therefore will yield the greatest increase (chest versus bracers, for example).
Can these proc a warforged version?
I just received one of these as part of the contents in the Savage Satchel of Cooperation (Random Heroic Call to Arms).
I'll probably get skewered for this but here we go...
If you DW, you can get 16 Baleful 695 pieces. If you 2H, you can get 15 Baleful 695 pieces. If you use a shield or other off hand you can get 15 Baleful 695 pieces and you have to find your own off hand.
So, we can have an ilvl of 695 at the cost of a lot of time and effort and a couple hundred thousand apexis crystals (assuming it takes multiple tokens per slot to get "optimal" stats, and one of these upgrades per slot) disclaimer: apexis cost, time spent, and effort level based upon RNG of tokens/crystals/fragments dropping from rare/elite mobs in the jungle. Your actual "cost" will vary.
But we can still only equip 3 draenor crafted items... as a BS I can craft 8 armor items, a weapon and a shield (I run a prot pally). I could upgrade them to a max of 715/armor, 705 sword/shield... but that's a lot of gold, time, and materials to get all 10 pieces up to 705/715. Those 10 pieces at 705/715, plus 6 695 empowered baleful items, would put me at 706.
Here's the point... I would upgrade my crafted items to level 4 of 6 (685/675); beyond that, it's a lot of mats and gold. So I would only use my crafted shield because I can get higher gear just for grinding in the jungle. But assume I did craft all 8 armor pieces to 715, crafted a shield and sword to 705, and equipped 6 695 empowered baleful items... i would be at ilvl 706... I would gain 11 ilvl's... If we can get a full set of gear that would make our ilvl "raid ready" then why can't I choose to spend my time/mats/money on crafting and upgrading more than 3 pieces to a slightly higher level? I would be happy even if they excluded weapons and shields from the limit.
Let us equip all the crafted's we want already especially this late in the expansion.
*gets off soapbox*
I just got one of these to drop from the new Nagrand rare ogres (6.2.2)
Can this be used to re-roll the stats of an already upgraded item? For example "of the deft" to "of the savage" for the stats i need.
Much in the same way as a leather refurbishing kit.
Hey guys, I looted one of these today and I was wondering if it's possible to loot more than one within a day or week? On a side note, I've kill a lot of rares on a daily basis in Tanaan and it seems that their unique loot is getting slimmer or I've reached a maximum rare kill cap for their loot in a day. Any feedback would be most appreciated. =)
I found that all of my baleful gear on a toon were "empowered" baleful. Now I certainly did not go around and upgrade all my baleful using this. How did they all get "empowered?" Any ideas? Exulted with someone?
I have a question: These may not be able to proc a warforged, but if I use it on an ilvl 670 warforged baleful piece, will the empowered version also be warforged? or will it simply be 695?
If you use this on a Warforged item, the item will cease to be Warforged. 695 ilevel really does mean 695 ilevel.
Empowered Apexis Fragments can drop from
. I've gotten two in my last two heroics with the satchel available.
FYI, as of this post, when you use this on an item it does empower, but it does NOT upgrade the comparison if you hold shift over another like-item.
It still compares the two with the original (pre-upgraded) stats of the baleful item.
I don't know if I've been interpreting the way this works correctly, but this is what I saw and the strategy I adopted:
I use a token to create lvl 650 gloves. It's better than what I had by 20, so I use it. It doesn't have my ideal stats, but it's still way better than the lvl 630 gloves. An empowered apexis crystal drops. Yay! Now my lvl 650 gloves are lvl 695 gloves. I notice that the gloves are improved but are improved in those same stats from the 650 lvl gloves, which are not ideal for my class. I discover that those empowered apexis crystals are hard to come by. Sooo...
I collect baleful glove token after baleful glove token creating new baleful gloves again and again, while hoarding any empowered apexis crystals that drop, waiting to get baleful gloves that are actually in my ideal stats so I can have lvl 695 gloves with my ideal stats. .
I've been doing that with every slot, with every baleful token, and I still haven't gotten one baleful item (for any slot) with my ideal stats. I've been sitting on 2 empowered apexis crystals for ages waiting for those ideal stats to drop for any slot. Is mastery>crit soooo hard?
I suspect that I know the answer to this question, but I'd like to ask anyway in case someone has tried it already.
Can I buy one of
on my main, mail it to an alt, and have them sell it back to the vendor for
to be used to buy Baleful tokens? Or would that be too easy? One of my alts is almost level 100 and I'd like to gear it up quickly but don't want to go through dungeons again... is this a way to gear up? Or do I need to grind out the Baleful tokens on the alt, and just send
from my main to upgrade them?
Thanks in advance!
Since all the gear levels have been revised, it worth really upgrading at this point, since we now have character level of 120, and the new gear will surpass what gain this will allow?
Don't bother using this to upgrade one of your Baleful weapons in the hopes you can vendor it for even more gold. After you upgrade the value only goes up by one gold so you might as well just vendor the fragment on it's own for 5g.
The tooltip is wrong, after 9.0 it empowers a baleful piece to item level 49 from 44 instead of 143
