Blizzard has once again cycled through the rotation of their new purchasable corruptions mechanic! This new rotation brings some corruptions that players haven’t been able to purchase yet, providing a wonderful perk for players that can afford it.

By implementing the Echoes of Ny’alotha system, Blizzard was able to take some of the rampant RNG out of World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth. Allowing players to buy exactly what they wanted instead of hoping it would drop increased endgame customization significantly.

Of course, it still isn’t a full guarantee, as players need to wait and hope that their preferred corruption appears. Once it does, they better have saved up enough Echoes of Ny’alotha to buy them, because some of these get expensive!

Such is the case with the most powerful, for sure. The third tier of some corruptions, such as Infinite Stars and Twilight Devastation, regularly cost 15,000 Echoes of Ny’alotha. That can take quite some time to grind out, so saving up for those over a lengthy period is the only chance.

This new rotation brings the following corruptions to the cycle:

  • Versatile (3,000 Echoes of Ny’alotha): Increases the amount of Versatility you gain from all sources by 6%.
  • Gushing Wound (4,125 Echoes of Ny’alotha): Your damaging spells and abilities have a chance to cause your target to ooze blood, dealing 182 damage over 7 seconds.
  • Honed Mind (5,000 Echoes of Ny’alotha): Your spells and abilities have a chance to increase your Mastery by 523 for 10 seconds.
  • Echoing Void (6,250 Echoes of Ny’alotha): Your damaging abilities build the Echoing Void. Each time it builds, Echoing Void has a chance to collapse, dealing 0.40% of your Health as Shadow damage to all nearby enemies every 1 seconds until no stacks remain.
  • Deadly Momentum (7,875 Echoes of Ny’alotha):  Your critical strikes have a chance to increase your Critical Strike by 72 for 30 seconds, stacking up to 5 times.
  • Infinite Stars (10,000 Echoes of Ny’alotha):  Your spells and abilities have a chance to strike a nearby enemy with an Infinite Star, dealing 886 Arcane damage and increasing their damage taken from your Infinite Stars by 25%, stacking up to 10 times.
  • Void Ritual (13,200): Gain Void Ritual, giving your spells and abilities a chance to increase all secondary stats by 63 every second for 20 seconds. This chance is increased if at least 2 nearby allies also have Void Ritual.

This rotation provides some wonderful selections for nearly every class, but make sure you know what might be best for you before you start purchasing!

For example, caster classes typically don’t have much of a need for Echoing Void, nor do ranged classes in general. Given that the player themselves is the center for Echoing Void, being far away from opponents renders it effectively useless.

Infinite Stars is generally one of the most popular endgame corruptions for its incredible damage output, but is only truly useful for single-target fights. Because of this, many raiders or mythic+ users find it effective.

However, if you’re in a position with multiple opponents, Infinite Stars is dramatically less useful due to its variety of randomly-selected targets. Instead, a more AoE-focused corruption like Void Ritual might be preferred.

These also aren’t all the highest rank of the corruptions available! Consider how much increasing your corruption may hinder your character before purchasing, as many of these could cause your corruption to have drastically negative effects.
