Makes sense, but here comes the complaining that it's not fair that the hardest content is giving the highest reward (even though people can get it later through other means).
Seems alright, they're being handled very similar to gear: Higher Content - Better gear.Only concern is whether they'll innovate on conduits much through the expansion or if we'll just find ourselves grinding the same ones at higher ilvl in later patches.
Please let us be able to get the conduits we need from more than one type of content. I would hate to see critical ones locked behind mythic raiding for example.
Hmm yeah that would suck if they are from some later boss and your guild hasnt reached that yet, though keep in mind if you have most conduits you can farm the maw to level up RNG some conduit so with enough farming you can level everything to mythic ilvl, should.
What bothers me the most the difference between start ilvl of 100 and max ilvl of 330, meaning that we'll have the same situation as in BFA where you'll do 5-10x more DPS by the end of the expansion.We'll probably need to have yet another ilvl/stat squish next expansion again.
Is it possible to get conduits from the great vault? (i.e. higher ilvls than what you get from the end of m+ cache)
That's worse than essences then. You could get essences from lower content, it just usually took a bit longer. This means M+ or PvP players will HAVE TO raid to get the best conduits. It also means getting max conduits on alts is basically a no-go. Not sure how I feel about that.
Man they are really destroying mythic+ and PvP even more this expansion... sad to see. Basically have to raid now if you want to compete in high end mythic+ or PvP.. That was already kind of the case but you could kinda get by without it, not anymore in Shadowlands and they utterly trashed rewards outside of mythic raiding ugh. Ilvl outside mythic raid is nerfed to hell and now you need all these conduits and legendary recipes from raid too. I'm so bored of raiding and dealing with 19 people's drama. Been there done that, gotten CE for years and I'm just bored of it. High io mythic+ and near gladiator arena takes more individual skill by far than mythic raiding... which is all about organizing and having a good raid leader than anything else. All 3 major endgame activities should be viable, at least within themselves (if you do nothing but high end mythic+, you should get the best mythic+ gear/power, without having to raid, if you mythic raid, you should get the best raid gear/power, without having to mythic+/pvp, etc).I don't mind raiding having slightly better rewards, and especially the best rewards for raiding, but they're just taking the piss now with how huge the gap is becoming between someone who raids and doesn't. So sad to see raid loggers like Ion ruining everyone elses fun so they can pretend they're somehow superior to everyone else.
As an exclusively high m+ player, this is fine because they are upgradeable by other means.
