WoW Wednesday: Pantheon Trinkets and How They Work

Antorus the Burning Throne was finally released yesterday and with it came the new and interesting Pantheon trinkets. To my surprise, many players don’t know or understand just what these Pantheon trinkets are or how they work. There are six different trinkets, five of them cover each type of spec, with the sixth being a new Legendary trinket. Before we get to talking about the specific trinkets I have to add that you can only equip one trinket at a time, so no stacking separate trinkets trying to double your buff. Also besides the Legendary trinket, the others drop at item level 940 regardless of difficulty (except LFR), but they can be upgraded using an item called Pantheon’s Blessing that you get from Argus the Unmaker.  Now let’s go over the different trinkets you can obtain, starting with the most sought after, the Legendary Pantheon trinket.

Pantheon Trinkets

Aman’Thul’s Vision

Aman’Thul’s Vision is a new Legendary trinket that was introduced with Antorus yesterday. I have to start off with the biggest question; “Will this Legendary count against our two Legendary cap?” The answer to that is a happy no. You can equip this trinket along with your other two Legendaries.  The reason this trinket will be more sought after over the others is for one it already drops at item level 1000, while the others drop at item level 940 and need an item to be upgraded to item level 1000. Also, it’s itemized like an Unstable Arcanocrystal which is absolutely amazing. Let’s go over its stats and the proc.

+1,430 Critical Strike

+1,430 Haste

+1,430 Versatility

+1,430 Mastery

Equip: Your spells and abilities have a chance to grant you 2,220 Speed, Avoidance, and Leech for 12 sec.

Aman’Thul’s Grandeur (Proc)

  • When empowered by the Pantheon, your main stat is increased by 6,700 for 15 sec.

Aggramar’s Conviction

Eonar’s Compassion

Eonar’s Compassion is the healing Pantheon trinket.

Equip: Your healing effects have a chance to grow an Emerald Blossom nearby, which heals a random injured ally for 74,816 every 2 sec. Lasts 12 sec.

Eonar’s Verdant Embrace (Proc)

  • When empowered by the Pantheon, your next 4 direct healing spells grant the target a shield that prevents 125,391 damage for 30 sec.

  • When empowered by the Pantheon, your auto attacks cause an explosion of lightning dealing 110,793 Nature damage to all enemies within 8 yds of the target. Lasts 15 sec.

Khaz’goroth’s Courage

Khaz’goroth’s Courage is the strength DPS Pantheon trinket.

+2,994 Strength

Equip: Your damaging attacks have a chance to make your weapon glow hot with the fire of Khaz’goroth’s forge, causing your auto attacks to do 108,366 additional Fire damage for 12 sec.

Khaz’goroth’s Shaping (Proc)

  • When empowered by the Pantheon, your Critical Strike, Haste, Mastery, or Versatility is increased by 4,219 for 15 sec. Khaz’goroth always empowers your highest stat.

Norgannon’s Prowess

The last trinket is Norgannon’s Prowess the caster DPS Pantheon trinket.

+1,370 Mastery

Equip: Your damaging spells have a chance to increase your Intellect by 11,483 for 12 sec.

Norgannon’s Command (Proc)

  • When empowered by the Pantheon, you gain 6 charges of Norgannon’s Command for 15 sec. Your damaging spells expend a charge to inflict an additional 287,308 damage to the target, from a random school of magic.

How the Procs Work

Every Pantheon trinket has a personal proc that could happen at any time, but each one also has a Pantheon proc that requires a bit more rng to get. For you to receive the Pantheon proc you first must have 4 unique personal procs overlap. This means you must have 4 different trinket types on 4 different players, and that each personal proc on those trinkets have to overlap at some point altogether for the Pantheon procs to activate. As of right now, the procs don’t have to happen all at the same time. For example, you could have two personal procs about to expire, but then the other two personal procs activate you will still receive the full duration of the Pantheon proc. As long as all of the personal procs overlap at some point the Pantheon proc will activate.

For those that don’t see the obvious, only the players that had their personal proc go towards the activation of the Pantheon proc will be the only ones to receive the Pantheon proc. If another player gets their personal proc to activate after the Pantheon proc has already gone off, their proc will be the start of a new count towards the next Pantheon proc. It doesn’t matter if every member of your raid has a Pantheon trinket, the first four unique personal procs that overlap are the only ones to receive the Pantheon proc.

Acquiring the Pantheon Trinkets

For you to obtain these amazing trinkets you must defeat Argus the Unmaker. Blizzard wanted to keep quiet on how the Legendary Pantheon trinket would be obtained, but like most expected it was confirmed it’s just a random drop off Argus the Unmaker. As stated above the Legendary Pantheon trinket is the only one to drop as item level 1000 while the others regardless of difficulty (except LFR) will drop as item level 940. You can get an item called Pantheon’s Blessing that drops off Argus the Unmaker that allows you to upgrade the 940 trinkets by 5 item levels up to item level 1000.

Final Words

I personally think these trinkets are pretty cool. I think it’s a neat idea how different trinkets from different players in your raid will work together to give you a mega proc. Of course, some players will not use these trinkets and for that kind of information, you can either check your class Discord for advice or sim it for yourself. Hope you enjoyed this week’s WoW Wednesday and congrats to those that have already cleared Normal and, or Heroic and major congrats to those that have already received one of these Pantheon trinkets.
