Mechagon Essences Costs
When you buy the Mechagon Essences for the first time, to get to Rank 3 you now need about half the amount of
Rank 1: 2
Rank 2: 8
Rank 3: 20
This change makes hitting rank 3 cost 30
(down from 62 and 27 respectively).
The Off-Spec prices also have been about halved. This is the price that you see when after learning another Essence of that
Rank 1: 1
Rank 2: 3
Rank 3: 4
Reputation requirements for Nazjatar (
)and Mechagon (
) vendor-sold Essences have been reduced from Honored/Revered/Exalted for ranks 1/2/3 to Friendly/Honored/Revered.
In addition, gaining reputation in Nazjatar is now easier due to Bind-on-Account reputation tokens. Exchange 20
for the BoA token
which grants 250 reputation.
The follower experience requirements for
has been nerfed:
Rank 2 is 2400 down from 3000
Rank 3 is 4800 down from 6000
Vision of Perfection
Both Junkyard and Workshop's end-of-dungeon chests can drop
for Vision of Perfection Rank 3. From my testing, completing the
Upper or Lower Mechagon of the week in Mythic+, will drop a Vision of Perfection related item equal to a Normal Mechagon Clear:
Rank 1 Vision of Perfection
if you already have Rank 1
for those players who currently have Rank 2, similar to completing a Mythic Operation: Mechagon run.
Heart of Azeroth Essence Tuning
Your spells and abilities have a high chance to impale your target with a spike of Azerite, causing Fire damage.
When an Azerite spike deals damage, all damage you deal against that target is increased by 5%3% for 6 sec.
The Rank 3 Minor debuff is also applied by the guardian summoned with the major power, resulting in a nerf for both the major and minor essence.
Call upon Azeroth to summon a Guardian of Azeroth for 30 sec who impales your target with spikes of Azerite every 22.5 sec that deal Fire damage.
The summoned guardian now attacks 25% slower at every rank of the major essence.
Developers’ note: With respect to Condensed Life-Force, the cast time increase was primarily intended to resolve a bug where the guardian would clip his own casts when a character gained enough Haste to bring the cast below a global cooldown. However, this particular Essence, which is largely passive, was the premier choice for most specializations on both single and multi-target situations. So, in addition to the cast time increase, we felt it was necessary to reduce the damage increase the player receives from the Essence.
Conflict & Strife
Your spells and abilities have a chance to increase your Versatility by 57 for 8 sec, stacking up to 5 times. Being the vicitimvictim of a loss of control or movement impairing effect also grants a stack of Strife.
Tooltip change. When not active in the Heart of Azeroth, the minor was displaying the incorrect versatility value. No actual change.
Call down a purifying beam upon the target area, dealing 10561215 * (1 + Versatility) * 7] Fire damage over 6 sec.
Any Aberration struck by the beam is stunned for 3 sec.
Damage increased for all ranks of the Major Power.
Major rank 2 now has the potential work on targets that are part of raid and dungeon encounters.
The Unbound Force
Unleash the forces within the Heart of Azeroth, causing shards of Azerite to strike your target for 341 * (7.06061) + 341477 * (7.06061) + 477)] Fire damage over 2 sec. This damage is increased by 300% if it critically strikes.
Damage increased for all ranks of the Major power.
When an ability fails to critically strike, you have a high chance to gain Reckless Force. When Reckless Force reaches 20 stacks, your critical strike is increased by 50% for 34 sec.
Minor Rank 1 and 2 duration increased from 3 -> 4 seconds.

Targets of your heals have a very high chance to transfer 2945 health from the highest-health ally within 30 yds.
