What about relic customization? How does that work? What we can or can't do?
So at this point, what is the purpose of Artifact Knowledge at all? It is just going to be given away and increased on a regular basis.. basically, I will have to do absolutely nothing at all to gain AK... So the way I see it, its just one less thing to worry about...
Do we know if you get 41 AK as soon as you reach level 110? or if you have to have one toon already at AK40 because if so i have wasted alot of Order resources getting AK on my alts that i am sure blizz wont give me back.
IMHO Blizz should indeed make this Global, with all Characters 98+ at the same Artifact Knowledge. The 110's that do Mythic+, Mythic Raiding, etc daily will still have an advantage over the rest of WoW in how fast they acquire AP and sub 110's will be stuck at R35 Artifact unless Blizz opens up that Questline to them too. That will level out the playing field as well for the 100-109 BG Bracket if everyone has the same Artifact setup.
Increasing the Knowledge wont mean diddly squat if the amount of power needed to earn a point to spend keeps doubling each time you spend one, cus then in the long run it takes just as long as if you didn't have AK at all and leveled normal, what they really need to do is make the dam Artifact Power account wide, that when you earn a point all your alts earn a point, and for all weapons specs not just the one you added the power to, otherwise it will be the end of the next expansion before we get them all maxed out.also when are they going to make catch up mechanics for the class champions who take 2 expansions to level up there quality to use all 3 equipment slots :(and thirdly they ether need to make class resource account wide or make it so we can trade them to alts because who has time to play more then 1 or two a day to earn the resource to keep sending champions out or purchasing equipment and recruits every day.
Why are people still talking about "maxing out" artifacts when Blizzard has stated ad nauseum that you are literally never intended to ever be able to get to concordance 50. The reason why it takes more than an entire human lifetime to get there is so that you cannot. You will never ever run out of useful AP. It is entirely on you how you want to spend your AP, whether you'll do like me and start working towards rank 1 concordance on your alt specs once you hit it on your main spec, or keep on trying to push it to as many ranks as you can. (I personally see no reason to go for multiple ranks, as the per-rank increase seems fairly minor for how much AP they require, and I don't raid hardcore or go for high level mythic +)What I'm interested is how this global increase will work on leveling characters, because I do feel like you should be able to gain traits faster under 110, even if it'd be ridiculous to jump you straight to AK41 (which would give you all 26 basic artifact traits with even the tiniest AP token) because as it is, even if you're wasting your non-renewable order resources (You can't do world quests yet) on AP quests (instead of on leveling your followers, the only actual progression you can do with them under 110/i760) unless you're funneling your alt resources from bloods from a main. Basically, I'd like to be able to unlock more than just one major trait (depending on your spec, and if you beeline for it) before I hit 110 and all those traits instantly become trivial to acquire.
I have a question and please excuse me if it has already been asked, covered or addressed. I am a BM Hunter and have 1 point in Concordance on all three of my weapons. I LFR raid and my guild isn't really active, plus I'm not much of a people person, lol, so I rarely do dungeons (never Mythic or Mythic +). So my question is, does anyone know how we will be using Artifact Power in 7.3? I am starting to bank mine, since I see no real reason to put more points into Concordance, but is that even worth it? Just curious, as I have not been playing around in PTR.
Basically they don't know what to do with this AP nonsense, I just hope this AP/AK system won't be continuing on next expansion. Legion could had been a great expansion but then AP and legendaries happen
