Patch 7.3.5 - Legendary Tokens Update

Patch 7.3.5 - Legendary Tokens Update
A recent PTR build added the ability to purchase a token that creates a Legion legendary item for Wakening Essences.

The upcoming changes will make it unnecessary to prepare for Patch 7.3.5, so that you don't feel obligated to farm Wakening Essences.

  • We've just pushed a hotfix live that makes Wakening Essences drop for everyone, regardless of whether you're on the quest or not.
  • We'll also be dramatically increasing both the number of Essences required to purchase tokens and the rate at which you gain them in Patch 7.3.5. The overall time investment needed to purchase a token will stay roughly the same, but this will minimize the benefits of stockpiling Essences ahead of time.
    • Note: Emissary bags earned prior to the release of 7.3.5 will still give pre-7.3.5 numbers of Essences. There is no benefit to saving Emissary bags until afer the patch.
  • We also plan to add Wakening Essences to your first Battleground win of the day in 7.3.5.
  • The tokens are bind on pickup because we don't want to overly encourage players to farm Essences on alt characters in order to feed Legendary items to their mains. However, if you purchase and use a token on a character that already has all of the available legendaries for their class, you will be given a random BoA token for another class.


Showerthought: With the inclusion of the Nightborne, the Horde controls a disproportionate amount of magical/arcane power on Azeroth.

Patch 7.3.5 - Legendary Tokens UpdateIt's been well established how gifted in the arcane arts the sin'dorei (blood elves) are. Now, the shal'dorei (nightborne, closest to the ancient highborn elves) will soon be adding their mystical might to the Horde. Granted, the Alliance have wayward "highborn" (in the form of kal'dorei - night elf - mages), but what else? Khadgar seems adamant about remaining neutral, and while Jaina wholeheartedly sides against the Horde, I cannot see Dalaran flip-flopping yet again and breaking neutrality (since we just defeated the Burning Legion). Of course, it's not out of the question, either. The Alliance also will be getting void elves and lightforged, however everythi...
