Greater Encapsulated Destiny in WoW Dragonflight – Explained

A chance at the impossible.

World of Warcraft Dragonflight’s new 10.1.5 patch contains a multitude of new content, from a new Mega Dungeon to playing babysitter for baby whelps. One of the bigger additions is the new Time Rift world event – a free-for-all activity with plentiful rewards for both gearing up and looking your best.

But there’s also a weekly quest associated with the event: When Time Needs Mending, granted by Soridormi who is located near the event proper. This is an account-wide weekly quest, meaning you can only do it once per week, not once per character. Taking one look at the potential rewards explains why.

When Time Needs Mending drops a reward cache called Contained Paracausality. This cache can contain Paracausal Flakes, gold, Shadowflame crests, gear trade-in tokens, or, most importantly, Encapsulated Destiny or Greater Encapsulated Destiny.

How Does Encapsulated Destiny Work?

The run-of-the-mill Encapsulated Destiny guarantees a reward from the next Time Rift you complete, which corresponds to the invading timeline (for example, if it’s the Lich King, you’ll get a reward from the Wrath of the Lich King vendor’s loot table).

Greater Encapsulated Destiny works a little differently – it guarantees an unobtained mount or pet from the expansion that corresponds to the completed Time Rift. This is an unbelievable gamble – it could reward Invincible, the Lich King’s much-coveted and ultra-rare mount drop, or even the no longer obtainable Wrathful Gladiator’s Frost Wyrm.

Needless to say, if you manage to get a very-rare Greater Encapsulated Destiny, your reward could be immense. It could also suck, like an easily-obtainable pet you just haven’t happened to collect. So if you do find yourself with one in your inventory, pray to lady luck before you click.
