Make Conduit upgrades specific to loot spec?

Why on earth aren’t conduit upgrades Loot Spec Specific? I’m sitting here on a Feral druid getting conduit upgrades from Soultwining Crescent and other items for Guardian, Boomy, Resto and i will never get any use out of them, meanwhile my feral conduits are low ilvl.

Hello everyone :blush:

You bring up a valid point about the conduit upgrade items not being specialization specific. It can be frustrating when you get a conduit for a spec that you may never use.

To address this, we’re working on a change that will go live with next week’s restarts that will allow Soultwining Crescent and Death-Bound Shard to grant conduits based on your current specialization instead of by class. In order to receive the conduits of the spec of your preference, you will need to switch your specialization fully, changing Loot Specialization won’t work.

In addition to this change, we’re increasing the drop rate of Death-Bound Shard when completing Adamant Vaults in Torghast, Tower of the Damned.

Thank you for your feedback!

Hello everyone. Here are a few answers to some of your questions on the upcoming change:

It will now always pick conduits that fit your spec including generic covenant ones. So if you have all your conduits at 239 now and start using it after the change goes live tomorrow, it will only find your spec and covenant ones to upgrade further to 252. You would need to change spec to get the other ones to increase.

Additionally, the upgrade item will not function if all the conduits for your specialization are upgraded. The item will remain in your bags for you to use after changing specs.

The drop percentage does increase with Torghast level. :blush:

The Death-Bound Shard can only drop once a week in the Adamant Vaults.
