For ambitious raiders and mythic-plus players, the endgame of WoW Shadowlands consists of farming Stygia, in addition to the usual content, in order to use it to upgrade media via Fragment of Unbound Reality and to add sockets to equipment via spatial realignment apparatus.
Ve'nari's socket upgrades are tied to Season 1 as of patch 9.0.5. So picking them up for Season 2 wouldn't make sense, since only Season 1 items can be upgraded with them. The media upgrades are also capped at item level 226, so hoarding the fragments is pretty pointless as well, or you can't trick the system with them.
However, it is still questionable whether Stygia will be reset with patch 9.0.5. Because instead of hoarding said items, you can simply accumulate thousands of Stygia until then and buy socket and media upgrades directly in Season 2. The game director has yet to comment on this. Players who have collected a lot of stygia and upgraded media would have a big advantage if there were new media upgrades in Ve'nari. Simply taking away a resource from players wouldn't be the right solution either, though. Maybe timegating media upgrades could be a solution.Support buffed - it only takes a minute. Thank you!
