Blizzard has finally added an option in the beta of WoW: Shadowlands, through which we can upgrade our soul bonds. The upgrade takes place via a specific currency and is subject to a random system.
The so-called soul ties will play an important role in the endgame of WoW: Shadowlands alongside the pacts. They not only provide us with special passive bonuses, but can also be upgraded to a total of 14 ranks. The data miners from Wowhead and Icy Veins figured out now in the shadowlands beta – and it will be random in the game.
Since the release of the latest beta build, players can buy four more items in exchange for Stygia from Ve'nari, the merchant in the throat. In addition to a legendary recipe, an item for Torghast and an item for socketing other items, this offer also includes an interesting option for the soul bond:
- Memory of Jailer's Eye: Legendary recipe, costs 2,500 stygia, prerequisite: an ambivalent reputation with Ve'nari
- Possibility Matrix: Expand your selection of powers in Torghast and give you the choice between at least two upgrades for your next Torghast run when you use them; costs 500 stygia; Prerequisite: a friendly reputation with Ve'nari
- Spatial Realignment Apparatus: Adds a socket to a Shadowlands item that does not yet have a socket; works with helmets, necklaces, bracers, belts, or rings; costs 2,500 stygia; Prerequisite: a friendly reputation with Ve'nari
- Aethershunt manifesto: Add a soul band to your soul band collection that you do not yet have, or upgrade an existing soul band by one rank; chance determines which soul band receives the upgrade (lower tier preferred); costs 500 stygia; Prerequisite: a friendly reputation with Ve'nari
So chance plays an essential role when it comes to upgrading soul bonds to the next higher rank. If, however, the item generally prefers the soul bond of the lowest rank in each case, it remains predictable, at least in the beginning, which soul bond the object will upgrade.
What do you think of this new random system? Do you welcome this kind of upgrading? Or would you have preferred to decide for yourself which soul band would receive the upgrade? Write us your opinion in the comments!
