This week’s reset has brought a small but important change, indicating a small relief in anima drought. You can now get 105 anima per Castle Nathria boss, and 175 from Denathrius/Stone Generals. I presume mythic dungeons have also got similar changes, but I don’t know, I haven’t been there and not going to.
Technically this means that you can now easily complete Replenishing Reservoir weekly only by running LFR alone, and apart from weekly, it’s a very welcome, moderately easy extra source of anima.
I, for one, welcome this change not only because of increased anima income – but also a great increase in LFR runs in general! LFRs growing into my biggest activity nowadays, it is super important to me. This change means that queues become a lot faster. Also, more people get all-boss experience, and even those overgeared players who shunned LFR before are coming there for a sweet anima chunk. Eventually this all results in easier and faster runs!
This week will drive most of my toons through chapter 9 of Covenant campaigns – with a very few exceptions, and I’ll be fully devoted to raid transmog grind from now on. Anima earned goes into Covenant armor upgrades until 197 as planned, and only then I would think about building and upgrading things.
A welcome change – yet still, not enough, not enough at all to reach the collectible goals. I expect more from Blizzard in the course of expansion – and soon.
P.S.: Speaking of Covenant campaigns: cloth sets are now all complete!
