Outside Azeroth - General Chatter / No Blizzcon 2020

I am not surprised the physical event was cancelled. I am surprised they do not (yet) have an announcement of an online/virtual event. One might be coming later, but I'm doubtful. "might be sometime next year" is not encouraging.

Is there any place that is keeping track of the Preserved Contaminants that the vendor has sold?

A spreadsheet by Dratnos (who is Very Smart) about the best corruptions for each spec and PvE situation, and a reddit discussion thread for it:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/u/1/d/e/2PACX-1vQPlWJC64XVWGyeTxgCi4LLoEm6NLwCnkiTF9JYGGyrBoMqtgE0bwBM54aXrZkIVEEN2OoavfT4Tc5E/pubhtml

https://www.reddit.com/r/CompetitiveWoW/comments/gq1aat/cheat_sheet_what_corruption_should_i_buy_all/

I should note that for the targeted audience, corruptions that scale by item level will generally be assumed to be on 475 items.  Raid weapon corruptions like Lash of the Void are outside of our reach at 475, so check bloodmallet for how much it is degraded on a 460 or 445.

(All other national and international nightmares are continuing as scheduled.)

My loud, cracked, hysteric laughter after I read this is maybe not the best sign of mental health.  The look on Sweetums' face when he came over to ask me about it was a pretty frightened one.

This is fine.

Our approximately two day national nightmare is over:

We’re rolling out a hotfix over the next few hours that will make it so that you can apply Preserved Contaminants to corruptible items that were cleansed before maintenance this week.

This week's free Epic game is Civ 6.

There was an alleged leak that predicted Civ 6 this week, Borderlands Handsome Collection next week, and Ark Survival Evolved in the final week of the mega sale.

There are two per zone, with four possible spawn locations per zone (three in the starting zone).  They are harder to find than chests since they're tucked into corners, but with enough experience you can learn where to look.  Finding all ten is worth 425 mementos when you talk to the ethereal, independent of how many masks you use.

Is there a concise summary of crystals and ethereals somewhere? I have bumped into it once or twice but not enough to GAF.

Update: Blue post w/wowhead commentary saying that items cleansed "recently" can be recorrupted. Items not cleansed "recently" cannot. Blizzard acknowledges that the UX for this is lacking, and is working on that.

Recently apparently means "prior to reset today". Unclear if they'll ever allow non-recent gear to be recorrupted.

Also: Many reports (including your humble interlocutor) that no corruptions are visible on Mother. Ancedata suggest "do both available assaults"
Also also: Gushing Wounds nerf (by 35%) incoming starting with next reset. It'll be fun if there isn't a gushing wounds available on the vendor for a couple of weeks.

Corruption vendor is live apparently, and is selling 6 corruptions. I believe there are 54(ish) corruptions in total, so with the stock changing twice a week (and assuming no repeats, lol) looks like the periodicity is about a month.

Which. ehhhhhhhhhhhhhh. whatever. I got outrage fatigue.
