ok, so i'm a bit confused, or not, and could use a little constructive feedback (aside from Cod saying "jeez, you suck at this game" lol)...

- on my druid, my necklace is level 74 (though my shaman has a level 75 neck! :( )
- - i have Crucible of Flame level 4 | Condensed Life Force level 2 | three other powers all level 1

- on my shaman, i cannot obtain (or have not been able to) any Echoes of Nylotha, she has Crucible of Flame leve 4 as well
- same with my dh, i cannot obtain (or have not been able to) any Echoes of Nylotha BUT i haven't quested with him much
- on my paladin, i have been able to obtain 100
- on my warlock, i have gotten 200

soooooo...

- for the pally & 'lock, they have not started the quest chain for the cloak, no problem, they can't even get to the chamber

- for the other two, have i basically fubared this because i'm playing so many chars, and my main, the druid, is level 4 in one but terribad in the others? i checked last night and MOTHER isn't offering me any option to purchse anything...but since i haven't gotten any, it's obvious i'm going about this wrong...

It's an odd catch-up mechanism for sure.  Some of the essences have pretty long, tedious requirements to get them: high pvp ranks, high rep with factions, etc.  if you earned a Rank 3 with one character, your other characters will start getting echoes.  But the only thing they can buy is the specific Rank 3 essence for the alt.  (Well, they can get the ones for whatever spec they are.)

So, if you get condensed life force to 3 on your Druid, all of you other characters will start getting echoes and be able to buy that essence.  The items that Mother sells have kind of funny names, look up the list of which one gives which essence.

It was relatively easy for all our mains to get the essences from running the raids.  Now my alts are gaining echoes so that some day they can get those as well.  But Honesty will probably never see an echo.

 

That make any sense?

They just made a change to this system, which won't really effect your character but might others.  The Condensed Life force essence (from Eternal Palace drops) is for your dps spec.  There were different essences for tanking and healing specs, which you had to earn by getting the same number of drops.  Now, once you get your Druid to rank 3 of Condensed he will start getting echoes drops, and can buy the tank or healing essences for that currency.

In "unrelated" news, apparently Ion Hazzitokas has been playing an alt recently.

a) who is that?

b) is there a point where you will NOT be able to solo an Horrific Vision? Cirne was gracious enough to help me grab a couple of letters to upgrade my cloak to level 7, but my game play times aren't in sync, so I wonder truly how far I can get by soloing them...

A) Game director for WoW.  Normally plays a shaman, and there have been a number of coincidental nerfs of bosses once his raiding guild gets to them.  
 

b)  if you are a stealth class, you may prefer soloing.  Most of the 5 mask clears I've seen have been solo, in a group it's hard to sync up gift of the Titans and dodge other people's stuff.  So, you can solo all of them forever.

However, being in a group means that if something goes wrong--a disconnect, unlucky stun sequence, etc.--you have someone to Rez you.  They adjusted the scaling a while back, if your group contains a tank or healer the mobs don't scale up as much.  I've not crunched the numbers but I didn't notice much difference between a solo run and one with Lierra, mobs seemed to die at the same rate.

So, tldr, you can solo any of it.  But if you want to play an MMO, there's no detriment to grouping.

good info, thank you

even when I *do* get to play for any length of time, it tough to sync up with those of us on the left hand coast...since I'm in DC (welcome to the swamp!) I tend to get on earlier then most, so I'm trying to figure out how to handle the visions.

I'll see if I can find some vids on soloing as a stealth kitty
