When Crucible of Storms was originally added to the 8.1.5 PTR a few weeks ago, we included full drop tables for both Restless Cabal and Uuínat. We designed Crucible of Storms drops to be somewhat different than items that have been dropping thus far in Uldir and Battle of Dazaríalor Ė this is a new chapter in the story that takes us to a different, stranger place.

Weíve recently gone through those items and tuned them up to fit closer to expectations for their stats, and in some cases, to fine-tune their bonus effects. Our goal here is to make the items compelling to equip and use, especially in cases where they provide only one secondary stat and their on-use or on-equip effects need to be powerful enough to make the item a good choice for use in many situations. That means there have to be ways that these items are comparable to Battle of Dazaríalor gear, and provide potential upgrades to most Battle of Dazaríalor raiders.

Here are some examples:

Faíthuulís Floodguards

  • Damage increased by 24.5%
  • Healing increased by 24.3%

Abyssal Speakerís Gauntlets

  • Shield increased by 198.8%

Mindthiefís Eldritch Clasp

  • Health restored and consumed increased by 34.5%

Grips of Forsaken Sanity

  • Damage increased by 24.8%

Legplates of Unbound Anguish

  • Damage increased by 24.5%

Weíve been making these adjustments via hotfix to the PTR since Friday, and we donít expect that youíre going to see them via datamining immediately, but this is an intended change to these items and hopefully theyíre now quite close to final values.
