Aberrus, the Shadowed Crucible Tier Set

The 2p is a flat healing bonus, including one for your Rejuvenation, one of your main source of healing. Nothing much gameplay-wise, but still a good upgrade.

The 4p bonus is very good (the Flourish-part being the most useful). It’ll improve the overall duration of your ramps, AND will empower them furthermore because of the double dip; if your Convoke procs a Flourish on its own during your ramp, your “real” Flourish cast just after will benefit from the +30% rate bonus tied to the first Flourish proc.


  • Rashok’s Molten Heart: An insanely good trinket, especially in raids, for healers, granting you mana, some additional healing, and Versatility to your friends, all of that passively.
  • Ominous Chromatic Essence: A very good trinket with different buffs, depending to which oathstone you attuned your trinket to. You can read more about the oathstones in our Dragonflight Oathstones Locations and Resonance Stat Buffs guide.
    • Bronze (Haste buff) - Thaldraszus
    • Ruby (Versatility buff) - Ruby Lifeshrine
    • Emerald (Crit buff) - Ohn’ahran Plains
    • Azure (Mastery buff) - Azure Span
    • Obsidian (Split between all 4 stats) - Waking Shores
  • Echoing Tyrstone: This trinket, from the new 10.1.5 mega-dungeon Dawn of the Infinite, is currently VERY overtuned, and performs excessively well. It’ll most likely be nerfed, but since it is still broken as of now, I keep it on the list.


Embellishments can be added to your crafted Dragonflight gear, with a maximum of 2 embellished pieces of gear. Some crafted items act as embellished items by themselves due to their “Equipped” effect.

The most useful are:

  • Potion Absorption Inhibitor is good either for DPS or HPS since you can cast extra HoTs without any mana cost thanks to Potion of Chilled Clarity, or use it for DPS purposes with a DPS potion, generally at the start of an encounter, where you won’t need that much mana (think about Terros)
  • Magazine of Healing Darts is purely for healing, adding some extra healing darts to your spells with a pretty good value.
  • Elemental Lariat is a craft embedded with an embellishment, granting you extra secondary stats depending on your gems. If you have Haste gems, you’ll have a Haste buff. If you have multiple combinations of gems with multiple secondary stats, you will have a chance to proc any one of those secondaries. This is a very good craft overall, thanks to its effect, and the fact that you’ll have your desired stats on this necklace. Don’t forget to add 3 sockets to it!
