My char is still 8 weeks behind others.. I hope Blizz removes the cap soon..
Could be a fresh level 15 cloak and be 10 weeks behind :-)
Blizzard really needs to remove the two per week cap.
yeah, ppls who dont play raid get affected for this useless cap. Why we cant get it for play PvP?
I keep telling myself I'll care about all this cloak crap, but... still not automatically open for my kazillion alts, so nope, I still don't care.
pls remove this cap! :( i have 8 week behind
Surprised there arent more sources for this. Thought it might also drop in a +10 mythic chest, Rated PVP chest and a chance to drop in the Emissary Chests at least.
If you have some little time to play that you can't do a single Heroic N'zoth kill or a single Visions run (which a full run 5 masks all chests and mobs takes 40 min and no masks can go twice as fast).... what exactly are you "behind"? You aren't following the curve anyway. You aren't behind anything. I agree that the dailies and rep grinds are annoying and should be removed or changed, but THIS - the cloak upgrade is one of the easiest and pleasant way of progression we've had in a while. CUT the whining already come on... you guys are shameless.
OT: Why is the cloak resistance cap increased to 83? I don't unserstand. Every single source said that it would be capped at 80 permanently so 10 weeks of visions. Has there been a change? Has there been something explaining it? It's a welcome one for me but kinda annoyed how I've missed it because I check both mmochamp and wowhead 10 times a day each and look specifically for news like this >_>
Well if you dont raid it kinda sucks. Pugging heroic nzoth weekly on 4-5 chars... no thanks, at least lower it to normal. I pvp and also push high mythics and it would be nice to be able to get the 2nd one from one of those two. I play as much as most people and am not behind the curve in ilvl but I am in corruption resistance.
Blizzard it should remouve the cap only for who is far away from the cap. Like a sort of "diminishing return" effect...
@Globex45 I mythic raid and have all expansion. Got sick and didn't play for about a month. Now I am back raiding with my guild and 4 weeks behind. Also, our Warlock suddenly quit when the pandemic hit since he is a 1st responder. We now need a warlock. Blizzard spend up leveling and reps...guess who is willing to reroll Warlock and be like 12 weeks behind on the cloak? you may have guessed NO ONE. Letting people catch up the cloak is not a whining thing. New players coming to the game have access to a lot denied them being so far ahead in corruption. A new fire mage for example...3 weeks is a full masterful 3 behind. 12 weeks means your down the ability to roll 4 masterful 3s. That is a lot of dps. I rerolled mage and I am just as geared as the other mage we have and only at cloak 66. I can wear 4 masterful 3s. Hes at like 8. I cant catch up to his dps if I wanted. its the difference between 45% mastery and damn near 75%. Same with hunters. We need a lock as mentioned...itd be the end of the exapansion before I caught up to the rest of my guild if I rerolled it. No one is willing and so now we have NO warlock. Any other expansion I would have gladly made the swap and my guild would have gladly geared me. Even if they let you farm visions for cores until the cap, itd still take weeks and hours of gameplay. It takes a LONG time on a character with a new cloak to get the echoes and conelescing visions to enter. At a new players gear level we are talking hours and hours of farming echoes since youll need them for essences and entries. THEN when you are done farming those, which is about 10 dungeons per essence IF being totally carried through 15s. Most of us dont have enough friends to farm that out in a day or 2. 4 essences ALONE is 40 15's. If you doing that solo, its more like over 100. Then the cloak is 7 mythic 15 keys per entry. If you are 10-13 weeks behind that means you are running well into the hundreds of dungeons if you were farming it out w keys. Then add corruption echo farming. For me, I need about 9 masterful's by the time I catch up. That is 45000 echoes. That is 180 keys. Others corruption costs more. Yes this is all mitigated down a tad by doing invasions and the weekly cache and such...but again those things are once per week. A new alt for a raid team suddenly down a warlock/mage whatever, a new player coming to the game, a returning player or a person who simply used Blizzard's enhanced leveling buff, all have to bite the bullet and be at a disadvantage for the rest of the expansion. It is not whining. At this point in the patch, 2 Malefic Cores per week is a ridiculous limitation. Even as a mythic raider with friends, it'd take me a few weeks to really catch up. A new player coming back to the game or an existing player who got bit by the M+ bug for the first time has absolutely NO hope of upping their game play status until Shadowlands. No one in their right mind is going to take a DPS from the group finder to a 15 key when they only are running like 75 corruption. There is a reason top players will run 80 corruption over their resistance...its a huge dps increase or else they wouldn't risk deaths to the thing from beyond
