i remember one of the promises for soulbinds was that there would be horizontal progression (more soulbind options), so this is lame to read.
They're moving soulbind like content to the Cypher system.
It's just funny they don't look through the new announcements they make so they don't have to backtrack on things like these.It's just so silly and unprofessional. I personally couldn't care less about soulbinds.
does this include conduit levels?
It's just weird, just dump some fun passive into the bottom of the tree for Frigg's sake. Even more lazy than the design of the expansion's only tier set as well.
You guys commenting sure just like to complain right? they said that soulbinds won't be updated but conduits still will...
We truly are playing a patch, and not an expansion. No updates or new things to old SL contents.
It's good they're not wasting time in a lame feature.
So the cap of 15 levels for conduits is gonna happen or not? We are rank 11 (252 base plus 26) right now with enhanced conduits. Obviously we will get +2 ranks with the next tier bumping to 13 (304). And we aren’t gonna get more renown levels, so like are we gonna get doubly enhanced conduits from the cypher system or something.And for anyone wondering what I am talking about with 15 ranks, we had these datamined a long time ago and they still hold to now as I last checked. Just something to consider if we’ll use the “space” allotted or not.https://www.wowhead.com/guides/soulbind-conduits-types-ranks-sources#conduit-ranks
Well they said that they’re not continuing renown because we’re done with the covenant parts of the story and we’ll get the cypher instead. Basically, it should be somewhat the same as renown but you dont have to worry about locking yourself into one. For example, progression limit still exist so you can’t just farm it, level 1 gives stamina, level 2 unlocks some words, level 3 unlocks new story, next week the same, week 3 includes the raid story, cypher level 10 makes some red automas yellow and so on. Basically renown but without soulbinds. But we get the cute automa who can provide some borrowed power system
Cause updating Soulbinds would eat dev time and we at Blizzard need to min max our costs.
I guess Kael'thas/Draka/Uther/Ysera wont be our soulbinds then, they are there just for the tease. We have traveled to WoW afterlife, where almost all of the heroes of the past had gotten to, and we bind our souls with random nobodies lorewise instead of prominent figures present in the same room, smh.
Soulbinds were pointless anyway. In no way did they invest in the system in an immersive manner. We did not get the Soulbinds as companions to adventure with us like with WoD and Legion, we did not get any additional story arcs to further explore the soulbind character (some of them were so heavily featured in their Covenant campaigns like Kleia but others much less so).
Sould binds are just as useless as the Domination Socket system. Arbitrary and useless - not to mention so heavily RNG based to get that I couldn't care less about any of them. GG Blizz!
They shouldn't have done it in 9.1 either
