It's a comfort to know that Apexis Crystals have always been a thorn in the backside for people farming them!
Now we can really tell there's a content lull, when wowhead have time to work on stuff like this :)Really nice throwback article. Perfect for a Thursday.
Draenor is the original area for them, since it's the past and Outland is the future/Present. :p
I never finished the Ogri'la rep. The Relic's Emanation sucked. https://classic.wowhead.com/user=lankybrit Have to agree good TBT piece.
Wowhead "News".Whole post is about 8 year old content and even some removed content.Could we agree perculia, that you'd slap the previously used "Spotlight" word, or the more fitting "Old Content comparison" on these kinds of posts, so people won't even bother to search for news, where there are none?I do understand, some site visitors enjoy these kinds of posts too, but it only reminds me of how much more content we had in previous expansions compared to the disappointing emptiness of WoD. (Although, I wouldn't label BC apexis as quality content either.)The majority of the playerbase is already tired of WoD, even Blizzard abandoned it, so there's no need for additional reminders.
I still have two stacks of Apexis Shard in my bank since I never finished the Ogri'la rep. When I found out that Apexis was going to be a currency in WoD, I was kind of hoping there'd be some kind of easter egg hidden NPC where you could turn in the old shards for the new currency. In retrospect, though, that'd be a horrible trade because of how easy it is to get the currency now.
Updated the name. I personally have a lot of fun writing these, if you're a newer player and didn't get the nostalgia tributes in Draenor before, these articles can give more context. Plus it's just something different to read and maybe you'll discover something new to do in game outside of Draenor.
Aw, I never knew they removed Shartuul! I always meant to do that.
In this content lull, now would be a good time to go back in rep grind some of those old expansion factions, so in that light, this article is useful.Also, apexis crystals weren't as hated back then as they are now.
Thank you for the refresher on these..... I'm remembering the hours spent getting the rep
For a hamster that i am in terms of wow i still have some in my bank even the blue ones.Nice article.
Oh man, totally forgot about Shartuul event, was one of the best things in wow now that i remember it. Didnt even know they got rid of him in Cataclysm.
I seem to recall reading that the event was always somewhat buggy, and Cataclysm rendered the transporter event completely unable to be completed due to bugs that couldn't be ironed out, so the event was removed in Patch 4.1.
Anyone else have their weekly quest reset overnight? Was at 4/5 apexis events completed, now sitting back at 0/5...
I found this area very, VERY annoying when I was going for Loremaster. If I want to play Simon, I'll buy the darn thing. I should have checked beforehand; it may be that none of them counted towards Loremaster and I could have saved myself some time...
Good old times :p
I wonder what holiday will replace this once Burning Legion comes out
I enjoyed it and I'm sure those people newer to the game did. With the fast pace of leveling these days it's very easy to totally miss stuff like this.
