The main reason for this change is likely to not put people unable to complete the final floor set during week 1 behind those who can. As far as getting a Legendary week 2 anyone can do it realistically, as you just need to clear the first 3 sets of the two wings both weeks. They are probably okay with better players getting long term advantages in higher ilvl and more legendaries quicker, but it is understandable they want the players to unlock their first legendary at once. Also makes sense that the highest ilvl version would cost a bit more, if just to make the essentially free higher than last two mythic boss items a bit harder to upgrade(harder in the sense it is a difficult value proposition when you can nearly get a new legendary at the 2nd level instead of upgrading one from 3 to 4).Another reason for the number changes is likely that the other resources needed to craft, mostly the base armor items, would cost a fortune week 1, where most likely couldn't afford them in the first place, giving it a whole week for people to drive the price of the mats for the armor down a bit will at least make them attainable. Even guilds will be hard pressed getting their armor crafters day 1 supplying the whole main team a piece each.Also finally plenty of Legendary powers won't even be available week 1, not even week 2(unless they lock Torghast till raid release which no one ever suggested would be the case) leaving you in a situation where you could have played well enough to beat all 8 sets in the two wings yet have no recipes available you'd want to spend on(and if you wanna instantly craft a higher level one when you do get the power on Heroic or Mythic release, the new system is better for insta crafting rank 2 and 3 Leggos anyways)My preferred one is locked behind a World Boss that could take Week 6(week 4 of raiding) to actually finally appear, that is a far worse restriction than not being able to craft a Leggo week 1 if I am good enough.
Because your power significantly increases even with the smaller legendary, makes sense. As others have stated already, it's definitely acceptable.
No problem with this.
too high numbers. they will add some more sources where you can get 1-5 pieces, like maw drop. it was the same with coalescing stuff. otherwise wouldnt change from 100 to 1200
Folks, keep in mind that the 600 Soul Ash cap in Torghast is from completing all 8 Layers, not 8 Floors. It's 6 Floors per Layer. Yes, if you run the 8th Layer, you gain the rewards of all the Layers below that, but you can't skip to a particular Layer unless you have completed it before.So, to cap your Soul Ash reward in Torghast in Week One, you will need to finish levelling your character, gear it up, and the clear all 48 floors of Torghast. Since you can't change gear, talents or specs while in Torghast. And the Anima Powers you receive during the run are random. Add to that you're (sort of) limited to a specific number of deaths (depending on the size of your group).Seems like a tall order in Week One for most players.
Ahh yes 'legendary'. Probably the most diluted word in the Warcraft dictionary. If only the players who complain about welfare epics during wrath could see that legendaries would become mandatory, time gated gear.I guess its better than legion (hopefully) (probably not)
Ok at first i write someting about how i fell like people that commit to the game should be awarded for it and if they manage to clear all 8 layers of two wings in firsts weeks they should be rewarded for that. But then i looked at the numbers and i think it's ok.With the numbers like that you have to run 6 layers of two wings the firsts two weeks and then 8 layers for three weeks to get your Rank 4 legendary on week 5 :- First week (2*6layers) 1030sa -- no Leg- Second week (2*6layers) 2060sa -- Leg rank 2 + 60 sleeping in bags- Third week (2*8layers) 3260sa -- Leg rank 3 + 60 sleeping in bags- Fourth week (2*8layers) 4460 -- No upgrade + 1260 sleeping in bags- Fifth week (2*8layers) 5660 -- Leg rank 4 + 510 sleeping in bagsDoing all 8 layers of two wings each week gives you : - First week 1200 -- no Leg- Second week 2400 -- Leg rank 2 + 400 sleeping in bags- Third week 3600 -- Leg rank 3 + 400 sleeping in bags- Fourth week 4800 -- No upgrade + 1600 sleeping in bags- Fifth week 6000 -- Leg rank 4 + 850 sleeping in bagsMy first though was fourth and fifth weeks sound really bad. You have a big amount of currencies slepping in bags that you can't do anything with. And you are not awarded for your first two weeks where you complete all 8 layers. In the other hand an other player who wants the rank 4 Leg on the 5th week, have to do pretty much the same as you (2 layers less only for two weeks is not really a big difference)And then i looked at what you have the weeks after :Player 1 :- 6th week (2*8layers) : 6860 -- Leg rank 4 + Leg2 rank1 + 460 sleeping in bags- 7th week (2*8layers) : 8060 -- Leg rank 4 + Leg2 rank2 + 910 sleeping in bags- 8th week (2*8layers) : 9260 -- Leg rank 4 + Leg2 rank 3 + 910 sleeping in bags- 9th week (2*8layers) : 10460 -- Leg rank 4 + Leg2 rank 4 + 160 sleeping in bagsPlayer 2 :- 6th week(2*8layers) : 7200 -- Leg rank 4 + Leg2 RANK 2 + 50 sleeping in bags- 7th week(2*8layers) : 8400 -- Leg rank 4 + Leg2 RANK 3 + 50 sleeping in bags- 8th week(2*8layers) : 9600 -- Leg rank 4 + Leg2 rank 3 + 1250 sleeping in bags- 9th week(2*8layers) : 10800 -- Leg rank 4 + Leg2 rank 4 + 500 sleeping in bagsThat is where the second player is awarded for doing the 8 layers on the first two weeks compared to the other player. He gets a second legendary rank 2/rank3 one week before the other player. I think it's a good pacing. The reward is here but not too strong and catching power gap within two weeks. So i think it's a good change here.
fine I guess
Blizzard had the chance once again to give disabled folks something to do, craft like it was in WoD. But of course, they make it harder to do once again.
I know why they've made this change but there's no doubt it's disappointing for those of us who play multiple specs. Maybe the generic legendaries will get a little bit of a buff to compensate. Right? :)
Seems ok, 1 week was a bit fast.
A bit more relative reward for those completing higher teirs, but less penalty for not rushing in week 1 to unlock and complete everything - good changes :)
This seemsreally stupid and the values that you are missing exactly 50 soul ash (out of thousands) will feel very frustrating and stupid to people.
long term this makes Zero difference to me it will quite literally affect week one of the expansion, post your 1st toon you can use the new levelling method and work on torghast whilst leveling all my alt
