So all those days I spent farming bloody coins, to buy lots of Vengeful Porcupette during WoD and sell them at the AH, turn out to be wasted. *sigh*
Thank goodness.I hadn't returned to the island because it was Griefer's Paradise with that darned Censer.Now those seeking the coins can do so where pvp actually should ever take place, BGs.Good job on the devs =)
After reading a lot of the angry Censer players on the forums yesterday, I was confused about this action, but now that I've read this post, it makes a lot of sense and it sounds like a great change. I never used the Censer, but I will use the Oath in BGs. Thanks for the explanation.
BBL farming a lvl 1 NElf on a Starter Edition for Coins.
As someone who grossly dislikes PvP, I'm happy to be given a chance to obtain the Ashhide Mushan without having to torment myself with free-for-all PvP on the Isle - for a non-PvPer, that system scared the bejeebers out of me. ;)I don't mind that I still have to participate in PvP for it, because that's after all the whole purpose of this currency, but by enabling it in battlegrounds people like me will at least have a reasonable chance to farm the coins for it.
So blizzard is once again catering to all of the whiners and complainers who %^&*! and moan. No wonder they bleed subs
I am thrilled with the Timeless Isle changes. I stopped trying for rare spawns there because of all the gimmicks people would use to try to kill others. I was trying for Khan before the alpha started and getting Bloody Coins faster in BGs is a good incentive to keep trying for Silvershard wins.
So basically we're going to have even more people standing in the middle of the battleground doing ****-all for the team, because... Timeless Isle was full of trolls.Beautiful logic, Blizzard. Maybe you should put in an achievement for being AFK for an entire battleground, or one for setting up a chair in the middle of AV and doing nothing the entire game.I try not to complain, but this is very obviously not the best way to deal with this "problem" that apparently exists. The entire system for getting Blood Coins or whatever they're called is awful; PvP realms are a nightmare for anyone trying to get their free epics and run, and Blood Coin farmers on PvE realms have to resort to crap like trying to get hit by people's AoE so they can actually attack them. God forbid we reward people for things like defending a tower or, y'know, not standing in the middle of a battleground.Nah, just push everyone trying to get their mount/pet into random battlegrounds and pat them on the back for ignoring objectives. I guess it's my fault for expecting more from the guys who brought us LFR.
Still no mention of a fix for the useless Burden's of Eternity sitting in the bags of toon's who don't need them. Can we just make them BoA already and reduce the ilvl upgrade they give to lower than Siege LFR? The only characters I have lucky enough to have them drop are ones that no longer benefit from using them.
They definitely went the other way on that one. I'm sad to say. I was really looking forward to a possibility of them taking away the island restriction to allow you to use it anywhere, but with the increased cool down. Ya know, every now and then you just want to kill EVERYONE.
A significant quality of life improvement, especially for players in PvE realms interested in farming coinsBattlegrounds are a logical place for it.
Unfortunately the droprate on Coins in bg's is still dreadfully low (~10% on a kb, and you lose the buff if you die), meaning the grind is really not practical in bg's and downright impossible for healers.I don't know about you guys, but I also focus down people in bg's I see using the Red Cow item. It's asinine to expect to get any Coins from bg's with it; I make sure they don't.
