This feature has been long time coming to World of Warcraft, and now it’s finally here. Blizzard has announced that after this week’s maintenance, Essences will be account-wide in game for players to enjoy. Check out the snippet from the official forum announcement below:
With the next regularly-scheduled weekly maintenance in each region, players who have earned a given Rank 3 Essence on one character will be able to directly obtain that Essence from MOTHER on any subsequent characters.
When playing an alt character that is missing Essences that have already been earned on a different character, most ordinary Visions of N’Zoth activities, such as Horrific Visions, Assaults, raid bosses, Mythic Keystone Dungeons, or BFA Season 4 PvP, will award a new soulbound currency – Echoes of Ny’alotha. These Echoes can be brought to MOTHER in the Heart Chamber, and exchanged directly for eligible Rank 3 Essences. While ordinarily each specific Essence must be learned in order to unlock it for other characters via MOTHER, all Essences associated with Nazjatar and Mechagon reputations will be available if any other different character has earned any of the Essences available from that reputation.
While that’s great news overall, especially for altaholics, keep in mind some work is still required. You’ll still need the currencies and will need to unlock the mechanic before you can actually grab em on your other characters.
