Full Guide - Corruption Gear

What is Corruption Gear

Corruption Gear is a new gear system that comes out in patch 8.3. Some gear have a chance to become corrupted. All gear that comes out in patch 8.3 will not be able to become Titanforged and Warforged. All gear before 8.3 will still be the same, with a cap of 455.

This gear has a specific boost on it, such as

  • Your Avoidance is increased by an amount equal to 3% or 6 % or 10% of your Haste
  • Increase the amount of Critical Strike you gain from all sources by 2% or 3% or 4%.
  • Increase the amount of Haste you gain from all sources by 2% or 3% or 4%.
  • Increase the amount of Mastery you gain from all sources by 2% or 3% or 4%.
  • Increase the amount of Versatility you gain from all sources by 2% or 3% or 4%.
  • Increase healing received from all sources by 4% or 5% or 6%.
  • You spells and abilities have a chance to grant you a flash of Clarity, reducing the cooldown of your next 3 spells cast by 2 sec.
  • Reduce your damage taken from periodic effects by 3% or 4% or 5%.
  • Increases your healing received from all sources by X%.
  • Increases your Leech by X%.
  • X% of total Health Regeneration now continues during Combat.

The numbers might change during test period and before patch comes live.

The percentage number is based on difficulty to get the item, basically what Tier it is.

Tier 1 (normal)                           2%                       Secondary Stat                             

Tier 2 (Heroic)                            3%                       Secondary Stat                           

Tier 3 (Mythic)                            4%                       Secondary Stat           


 How does it work

All Corrupted gear will give some kind of boost (see above). However, every piece of gear has a certain amount of Corruption on it.

The more corrupted gear you have on you, the higher amount of Corruption your character will have.

The amount of Corruption your character has will also put a debuff or several debuffs on your character.

10 corruption Grasping Tendrils

Taking dmg has a chance slow you for 5 Sec.
The higher corruption the more the slow increases.

20 corruption Corrupted Zone

Your spells and abilities have chance create a pool under you that does shadow dmg every 2 sec on you. The pool size increases the higher corruption.

40 corruption Grand Delusions

Taking dmg has a chance to summon a Thing that chases you for 10 sec.
Its speed increases the more corruption .  

60 Corruption Creeping Death

Damage taken increased by 10% and healing reduced by 10%. The higher corruption after, this increases. It increases by 1% for every corruption above 60 and starts at 10% when having  60 in corruption.

The amount of corruption on the Corrupted gear is based on based on difficulty to get the item, basically what Tier it is. This is just an example of corruption and the exact number will be known soon.

Tier 1 (normal)  Corruption       10
Tier 2 (Heroic)    Corruption       15
Tier 3 (Mythic) Corruption       25

                                                

If you don´t want your item Corrupted

There will be times where you don’t want the gear you got to actually be corrupted. For example if the boost it does is wrong for your char, or if you get way to high corruption so the debuffs are to much for you. Therefore there is a system to remove the corruption from it.

You can remove the corruption from your gear (cleanse it) by talking to MOTHER in the Heart Chamber, same place Magni is located in Silithus.

It doesn’t cost anything at all to cleanse the gear.
