I demand a refund!

Post by Skalman » Fri Oct 16, 2020 2:02 pm

So I managed to do the warlock quest in ST, and got to choose reward. "Summon Voidwalker without mana or shard" sounded too tempting, even if that chest piece is also great. Hmmmmm ... I want the chest piece, but .... I take the summon trinket!!
WHAT?? 30 min cooldown?? Come on! I want a refund! Give me my chest piece!!

"Check the DB, check the DB". I trusted the guy. He looked trustworthy! But fair enough, only Blizzard is stupid enough to make an item like this. I should have known. With ot without DB.

You'd be wanting a refund for the chest piece too seeing that you can work towards getting yourself a Bloodvine Vest, which is far better.

Should've taken the scythe for BiS xmog (the stats are also way better than either of the other 2 options).

Yes, the staff is generally what people choose. I'd be for making changes to make the other two options viable.

Abyss Shard

This trinket can be used to GAIN SOUL SHARDS without needing to use Drain Soul on targets that yield XP or Honor.

All you have to do is use the trinket to:
  1. Summon a Voidwalker (at no mana or Soul Shard cost).
  2. Put the Voidwalker on Stay.
  3. Move far enough away from the Voidwalker for the Voidwalker to despawn.
  4. Gain +1 Soul Shard in your inventory.
Note that doing this gives you +1 Soul Shard more than you had before using the Trinket ... and it turns out that there are a surprisingly large number of edge cases where being able to generate a Soul Shard "out of nothing" is a Really Useful™ thing to be able to do. For one thing, it basically means that with the trinket you shouldn't run out of Soul Shards as a Warlock.

Just FYI.

You get the shard when you die with the voidwalker out too but that's more painful.

I think you always get a soulshard when you die, even without a pet. I vaguely remember suiciding with hellfire and getting a soulshard.
Note: balake does condemns suicide. He just did it to pass the searing gorge gate... its a phase maintenance_turtle

It's one of those Not So Obvious Clever Use Of Game Mechanics™ things that Players discover (or read about online).

So don't feel bad about taking the Abyss Shard as your reward choice. You'll probably wind up keeping it and using it for far longer than any of the other reward options (in the long run) since being able to use it to gain Soul Shards (one at a time on a 30m cooldown) is something that is useful to have access to ... forever.

Yes, and since the warlock is a secondary character, I can keep a client open for him to fill up a soul bag. I started with a small one 20 slots. I'm now happy I took the trinket :)

No refund thanks! The tricket is mine! Mine! My precious ...
