I don't know if this article is necessarily correct. my priest was the first toon i have to reach tier 4 and my monk which i swapped to shortly after 9.1 release has tier 3 but I can still buy riftkeys on the monk. That must mean it's account bound, maybe it's only up to tier 4, but then why wouldn't tier 5&6 be account bound if tier 4 is. Doesn't make sense to me. The article explicitly says bnet account but doesn't mention anything about alts on the same wow account which my 2 toons are on. Not exactly sure how limit does alt management but it is weird that my experience regarding archivist's codex doesn't match up woth what the article says.
I'm already bored with Korthia on my main. I doubt I'll get tier 6, let alone doing it on an alt.
Mama mia... it just doesn't stop. It feels like the management is out of touch. Are there even WoW players/developers in high positions? Or are they heavily outnumbered by business people. Because it's just mistake after mistake after mistake. And not just new mistakes. It's like they do not learn from what they did wrong literally 8 months ago.
no, they dont. see this article: https://www.wowhead.com/news/season-2-sockets-from-archivists-codex-cannot-be-added-to-domination-socketed-323480
Yup. Remember when they announced it at blizzcon? Not alt friendly at all. Gawd, I miss Legion.
Sorry, some of us have lives outside of this game.
This has been by far the least alt friendly expansion ever. Playing alts is actually a detriment and an awful experience.Blizzard, I don't want to do the same boring system grinds three times a day. You have no respect for my, or any other players time. This is where I envy ff14's Job system where you do EVERYTHING on one character. For god sake, having to do Korthia for a couple hours each day is BORING. Why can't I use the catalogued research that is *useless* for my main, on my alt instead?For christ sake.
Every decision they make is so selfish.
Because spending an hour or more in Korthia per character is so much fun. Especially since they still haven't fixed the random lag sessions that can kick in.WF Cares, also people who want to take any endgame somewhat seriously raid. Raiding, Mythic Plus and PvP all require you to get upgraded conduits and/or sockets to push themselves. You are being a little bit naive if you think the game is nothing but WF and Casual players.
I didn't expect it to be account wide. But I also don't think the conduit upgrade and socket tokens shouldn't be locked behind the highest level of the rep... it's really restrictive and I think it's better if all players have access to these things and not just the ones who spend a month or two working on a rep. Player progress, including alts, is currently blocked given the state of the rep and it's rewards. While gems and conduit upgrades are valuable rewards that give players a really appealing reason to engage with the rep, they are also so basic and essential to players progress I don't think they should be this heavily restricted and exclusive.
This is so bad... Blizzard must hotfix this bug.
so alt friendly!
I've been farming it 3 times a day, it's super fun.
