Perhaps wording here? Defeating Thrall is not required even if you don't complete the lost areas, he doesn't drop a page. Just defeat him for your potential piece of gear. (The wording makes it seem like he drops a page if you don't complete the areas).
This is a nice boost week to the Cloak with the +8 Corruption & +5 Sanity reductions. Only one more week to go for the big 15!
Also remember that not everyone is raiding heroic/mythic. For those people the gear is still likely upgrades.
Just take care ya'all. You can 5 chest this w/o masks to get your upgrades; you wear the masks and get an unlucky push into a sanity drain pool with leaden foot active (so move... but don't move!) and then get a madness fear (g'ah nice timing), with another rando mob that spawned due to low sanity, and mob chain stunned (well f' me... all in less than 2 seconds) ... it's a "shoulda run w/o masks" deal and you can go grind another vessel :)
why would you skip the end boss anyway? by rank 13 cloak you lose very little sanity already, you should be able to do a full clear of all wings easily with orbs to spare by the time you get to thrall
This is the Worst Grind in the game today...Running 3 and 4 of the same ole Visions on a Main plus 5+ alts is mind numbing ...Quit the game..see ya in Shadowlands
Nothing says fun like grinding the identical solo content 3 times in a row.
Honestly I don’t mind the multiple run requirement. Trick is to run each attempt with mask(s).2 mask for 4553 mask for 4604 mask for 4655 mask for 470After you run a double mask the ilvl reward is lower if you clear a 2nd double mask. By adding a mask each run you get a piece of gear along with the Ion slot machine for corruption.
But if I understand it correctly, doing 2 3-mask runs will give the same item rewards as doing a 2-mask and a 3-mask, but yield more mementos. If you know you can reliably do 3-mask, there's no reason to do limit yourself to 2-mask.
makes you wonder if you could get a 100% resistence at some point. (wich would probably defeat the purpose of the contend)
Max is 80% at cloak rank 15...
As a tank i cleared all quarters + thrall and ended up getting 1 page
with good weeks you'll be able to do 5 masks pretty easy - good being subjective as maybe leaden foot isn't a problem for someone where it is to another. leaden foot isn't a problem to my BM hunter, but kinda is to my shadow priest. A good week is with leaden foot to my hunter, to my priest that's a bad week especially more so if stormwind. No chance to 5 mask stormwind with leaden foot on my priest - at this this time. In a couple months, i'll be so geared it won't matter much.
