Common Problems

  • Wakening Essence didn't drop from a boss.
  • I ran a Mythic dungeon and did not get Wakening Essence.
  • World Quest rewards aren't giving any Wakening Essence.

Wakening Essence is a currency added in the World of Warcraft: Legion expansion. Redeem it with Arcanomancer Vridiel in Dalaran to receive Awoken Titan Essence, which upgrades the item level of Legion Legendary world drop items.

You can see your total amount of Wakening Essence on the Currency tab of your in-game Character menu. When you receive Wakening Essence, it is added directly into your Currency total.


Wakening Essence can be awarded by the following in-game activities:

  • Collecting weekly Mythic+ rewards
  • Defeating Antorus raid bosses (First kill of the week, regardless of difficulty)
  • Opening Emissary caches from World Quests
  • Completing daily Heroic dungeons
  • Completing weekly PvP challenges 
  • Completing the first battleground win of the day (PvP brawls in battlegrounds also count. Brawls in arena do not.)

Note: The quest The Cursed Shard is optional and only directs you to Arcanomancer Vridiel's location.
