Blizzard’s extension of the Echoes of Ny’alotha currency recently brought a wonderful way to spend them. With the new purchasable Corruptions, players have been able to remove a bit of the RNG from the title.

By allowing players to purchase the corruptions instead of hoping for them to drop, players are able to fine-tune their builds instead of hoping that the gear they receive has the proper corruption for them.

That isn’t to say that there’s no sort of randomness to the system, unfortunately. Players still are at the mercy of RNG in regards to which corruptions appear in the shop during a new cycle.

World of Warcraft has cycled through the corruptions once more, however, with this fourth set of purchasable options. With six corruptions up for grabs, players are able to spend their Echoes of Ny’alotha on a few of the best corruptions on offer – depending on your build, of course.

Players will find the following corruptions purchasable from M.O.T.H.E.R.:

  • Severe I: Increases the amount of Critical Strike gained from all sources by 6%
  • Siphoner: Increases your leech by 3%
  • Expedient II: Increases the amount of Haste you gain from all sources by 9%
  • Honed Mind: Your spells and abilities have a chance to increase your Mastery by 915 for 10 seconds
  • Twilight Devastation: Your attacks have a chance to trigger a beam of Twilight Devastation, dealing damage equal to 12.00% of your health to all enemies in front of you
  • Strikethrough: Increases the damage and healing you deal with Critical Strikes by 4%

These six options provide a wealth of rewards for builds that may utilize them. While Twilight Devastation is the strongest at face value, it won’t be effective for all builds, so make sure you think your purchases through.

The purchasable corruptions are also quite expensive. As the tweet embedded above shows, the cheapest is 3,000 Echoes of Ny’alotha, while the most expensive is a whopping 10,000 Echoes.

While Echoes of Ny’alotha drop with significantly more frequency now that before due to an update from the developers, they’re still far from easy to obtain, and it’ll take players quite a while to be able to afford some of the more pricy options that M.O.T.H.E.R. offers.

Thinking through your purchase is vital, but make sure you don’t miss out on the corruption that you need. Blizzard has been cycling them often, so if you’re in the market for one of the options on offer, don’t let them cycle away without grabbing one.

Of course, there’s always the chance that the RNG has spat in your face again and none of these options are useful for you. If that’s the case, just hang tight, as the next rotation will hopefully contain something that you can find useful.
