If you’re still stuck searching for the perfect legendary item in World of Warcraft: Legion, your time has finally come. When the Battle For Azeroth pre-patch goes live this coming Tuesday, the vendor who once sold tokens for a random legendary item will now just straight up sell you whatever legendary you want. The cost will be the same: 1000 Wakening Essence.
In addition to this, Blizzard says that “many sources of Artifact Power will not grant Wakening Essences instead.” Welcome to the end-of-expansion piñata party! This should provide some small amount of fun while we await the release of Battle For Azeroth.
Read Blizzard’s full statement below:
With the Battle for Azeroth pre-patch, you’ll notice that the vendor who sold tokens that granted a random Legion Legendary item will now allow you to purchase specific Legion Legendaries relevant to your specialization. These are sold for the same cost that the token was sold for previously.
Battle for Azeroth is just around the corner, so we wanted to take this opportunity to allow players who are trying to complete their Legendary collections a more straightforward way to do so, as well as give or new or returning players a way to pick up some strong items to prepare for leveling.
These items can be purchased from Arcanomancer Vridiel in Dalaran for 1000 Wakening Essence. To help with this, many sources of Artifact Power will now grant Wakening Essences instead. Enjoy!
