[Accepted] Add Nexus Crystal Vendor

Post#1 » 21 Aug 2016 00:13

On TBC release many enchanting recipes from AQ40 were changed to require TBC mats instead of nexus crystals, namely:

-Small Prismatic Shard
-Greater Planar Essence
-Fel Lotus

At the moment the first item is obtainable by disenchanting items from ZG/AQ20, the second item requires using shady methods that I will not describe here, the third item is simply unobtainable.

My suggestion for Primal is pretty simple: to add a vendor that sells these items and make them buyable with nexus crystals as currency in a 1 to 1 ratio (somewhat similar to frozen orb vendor in Dalaran). This way we simulate the demand for nexus crystals that originally existed in vanilla and at the same time kill the black market that there is for Greater Planar Essences at the moment (and the need to disenchant ZG/AQ20 items for certain enchants).

I will update this post with information about the enchants in question.

Edit: I forgot to mention it but, naturally, we'd need to have all the TBC mats purged once TBC is released in the server.

This is very much needed, if recipes are not changeable.
Would be really helpful. AQ20 enchants are very limited due to current way they work and Nexus Crystals are worthless and not needed for anything except Sageblade crafting and T3 turn-ins.

When items are added to vendor we can not use any item we wish as requirements to purchase items, other than gold at vendors is set via a extended cost for a certain currency and then only in the amounts predefined by Blizzard ie different amounts of honor, arena points, emblems, armor tokens, event currency. We cannot add custom nor can we add custom amounts and since there is no cost ids for Nexus crystals this cant be done.

Can't you make repeatable quests for it?

Or a website tool that converts Nexus Crystals into unused/unobtainable currency which then can be used to buy tbc mats from a vendor?

Or a mix from the above?

I have made a sugestion to the rest of the staff about this but I may have came up with a solution to allow these items to be obtained on Primalwow,

What I have sugested is 2 x nexus crystal to get 1 x small prismatic shard, 2 x greater eternal essence to get 1 greater planar essence, 2 x black lotus to get 1 x fel lotus oh and 300 enchanting skill

Wether this gets implemented or not is still in discussion so this is for info only for now.

Fel Lotus has no purpose on PrimalWoW currently, but the other two options seem like decent solutions.

The following items should be considered for this kind of suggestion (all of these are required for certain AQ20/40 enchants):

Small Prismatic Shard (needed for all enchants)
Greater Planar Essence (needed for all)
Primal Earth (needed for Cloak - Dodge)
Primal Air (needed for Gloves - Superior Agility)
Primal Life (needed for Gloves - Threat)
Primal Shadow (needed for Cloak - Subtlety)
Fel Lotus (needed for Cloak - Stealth)

Unless it was fixed Primals can be obtained from Lhara while Darkmoon Faire is active from wherever the darkmoon faire is at that time so once every 1-2 months (should be every month but know Shattrath location is not available on PW).

Ok this has now been implented I will go through what exactly has changed: -

Kandrostrasz <Brood of Alexstrasza> in Temple of Ahn'Qiraj will offer 7 repeatable quests to players who have the enchanting skill with 300 skill points which allow the enchanter to obtain materials which are actually TBC materials but are needed for some enchanting recipes which drop in aq20/40.

Small Prismatic Shard for 2 x Nexus Crystal
Greater Planar Essence for 2 x Greater Eternal Essence
Fel Lotus for 2 x Black Lotus
Primal Earth for 2 x Essence of Earth
Primal Air for 2 x Essence of Air
Primal Life for 2 x Essence of Life
Primal Shadow for 2 x Essence of Undeath

All loot has been removed from summoned zombie which was incorrectly dropping black lotus and other materials when should never have had any loot at all.
All TBC/WOTLK herbs and Leather and Primals have been removed from Lhara seems someone had already removed some items like gems, heavy borean leather, Artic Fur, Lichbloom, Icethorn and Adders Tongue but left the rest of the tbc/wotlk herbs and leather.
Players on Primal who had TBC/Wotlk herbs/leather in inventory have had these items removed.
