This seems to have been added to the latest PTS build or else i just didn't notice it before this morning
The new Torvan Venerated Rep essences can now be Upgraded the same way as the upgradable gear to a Relic essence, all you need...this will make the DRR auction people drooling.. the essences that drop from the DRR's.
Examples, for Mages, Flowing Tidesource, Demulcent Faesource, Malevolent Shadesource, etc...all the BoE ones for each calling.
Whatever 'proc' the DRR essences have is now added to the Venerated Rep essence, time for some screenshots to explain better
This is your 'base' Venerated Rep essence:
The upgrade system we all know, in this case you can follow two different paths:
Adding this DRR essence to the left path:
will give you this Relic essence which combines all the stats and procs of both base essences:
Likewise following the right upgrade path with a different, but same family, DRR essence
will net you this Relic, again with both stas and procs from the two essnces combined
Prices for the DRR essences are already ridiculous prices on AH so looks like DRR Auctions will be more popular than ever come 2.3 better start stocking up your Lures and running bid runs
