Still no news on the horizon about a 64bit client unfortunatly.
And the worst part with the Vp change is that it DOES make sense...4.1 essentially boosted the cap, allowing for 980 Vp per week rather than 490.In theory, 4.3 will be another mid-tier dungeon patch, and staying true to the "hasten progression" concept, it will have to boost the Vp acquisition cap, leading to inflation, unless this change comes in and gives room for cap increase. That, or prices will keep rising come 4.4, 4.6 etc., leading to inflation and screwing the system blizz designed to avoid differences in prices.What DOES disturb me is the decrease in BH Vp, e.g. Occu'thar giving 35 Vp. It might be kind of an entry boss, but this is discriminating :PAs for the legendary change, i'm a bit concerned with it killing traffic in old raids. Clearing them now will be much harder, if you haven't already, as opposed to people pugging it and guilds running it for legendary clearance.
Any word yet as to what the conversion will be from VP to JP will it be point for point, and what happens if we are capped in JP at the time?
"All existing Valor Pointss in the Currency tab have been converted to Justice Points. Any points above the Justice Point cap will be converted into gold at a rate of 47s per point and mailed to characters." http://www.wowheadnews.com/blog=190575/patch-4-2-public-test-realm-notes-updated-6-07So I guess it's 1:1 point conversion.
So if my math is right Inquiry of Faith will make Inquisition last 36 sec up from 30 sec right?
The one thing I am disappointed about (and would hope for some rethinking) is the lack of incentives to go back and work on the existing tier of raids. I guess if I had my druthers I would want them to do 4 weeks (say 4.2.1) of some valor for the old content regular and another 4 weeks (say 4.2.2) of rewards for heroic. Would incent the better raiders to raid off-night with less well geared people to achieve key Blizzard desire - showing people content they have missed. I completely understand why they need to eventually eliminate valor for the old 4.0 raids but , as is, I just don't see them getting much (any?) interest except may in 6 months when people want to completely overgear for achievements.Instead, the system heavily rewards endless speed runs through ZA/ZG....something probably a large majority of the userbase has done and more facerolling through the heroics - something that 99% of the end game base has done. One more piece of evidence in the fact that Blizzard doesn't expose their system to trying to think like a time/gear maximizing player.Oh.....and they are going to quickly find out that not all of their first teir raids are created equally. Why would one, for example, run BOT heroic and face all that trash clearing as opposed to simply farming the 180-210 valor over on BWD?Am I missing something here?
I imagine that Blizzard will add the weekly raid quests again once the expansion gets a little older. Those were pretty popular, and I enjoyed doing them.
No doubt that this will sound like a dumb newbie question, but I don't know or understand very much of the WoW slang yet:Quote: "As these patch notes revealed, the previous tiers of content requirement for Dragonwrath, Tarecgosa's Rest were removed. You now can get the quest from Molten Lords then visiting your faction's capital city."If your character is not a "member" of a faction, then where do they get the quest? I cannot think of any faction that has a capital city other than the Scryer and the Aldor factions in Shattrath, but that city actually belongs to the Shattar (-?- sorry if I have that name screwed-up). My primary character is associated with the Scryer faction, and has Honored and Revered reputations with some other factions in Shattrath. However, he isn't associated with any other faction(s) anywhere else, as far as I know. :-)
Faction is referring to Horde or Alliance so Orgrimmar or Stormwind respectively.
