The first PTR build of Shadowlands Patch 9.0.5 is finally upon us, and some interesting details have been discovered! One of the discoveries that have been made on the first PTR build is the
, a new item sold by Ve'nari that allows you to track new Stygia deposits in The Maw. However, there is more to those Stygia deposits and the materials it awards you. In this post, we go through our current discoveries regarding the Stygia Dowser, and what it is used for.
and Stygia Materials
On the Shadowlands 9.0.5 PTR, Ve'nari sells two new items, one of them being the
. The Stygia Dowser is an item that stays in your bags and allows you to search for Stygia Nexuses. Stygia Nexus are small balls of green energy, reminiscent of engineering motes from past expansions. Stygia Nexuses are usually in areas that are hard to reach, such as behind hordes of mobs, deep inside caves, or in areas only reached via grappling with the
The Stygia Dowser allows you to track Stygia Nexus on the minimap, and when used nearby a Nexus, it will drain it, granting you a small amount of Stygia, as well as some
The Hidden Forge in Domination Keep
Also on the Shadowlands 9.0.5 PTR, some observant players have noticed there are more grapple points added on the 9.0.5 PTR. Most of these grapple points lead to areas where Stygia Nexus can be found, but one specific grapple point leads to a very interesting area.
The Maw rare
is hidden in the upper portion of Perdition Hold, in an area only accessible to players that have killed the other 3 Herald rares in The Maw and created a

This grapple point leads to an area containing a Soul Forge and a Soulsteel Anvil. In the area there is also a portal, which is a one-way return portal to the riftstone in Zovaal's Cauldron.
On live servers, this area does not have a grapple point, making it impossible to reach by normal means (

Stygia Crafting - Tower Shadehound Mount?
It is currently unknown what Stygia Crafting will be used for. Our guess for right now is for a new Maw mount, the

The Tower Shadehound mount is supposedly rewarded from the quest
, which mentions a "runed armor husk", which seems quite similar to the
we are able to craft with Stygia Crafting. There are some items that are currently undiscovered, as well as another crafting spell involving the

What do you think Stygia Crafting is for? Do you think there is more to this system than this possible mount? Let us know in the comments!
