I love Taliesin and Evitel videos!
Or Maybe instead of censoring people's feedback maybe make a new "news group/filter" that will be for content creators vids/news/posts and keep the actual wow news clear of those?What i mean by that is it should be like the filter for classic or live or in development filters, make a new filter for content creators, Who wants to see it can keep it in who doesnt want to be notified about it or see it can tick the filter to remove such posts, that would be better instead of shoving them down our throats, not speaking about T&E i have nothing against them but also like the sloot roundtables for example or rextroy 1 shot vids, just make a new filter for these.The replies from WoWhead staff were so condescending its not even funny, I sincerely hope my comment/suggestion doesn't get removed as well and get a proper reply to it instead.
Can anyone define what the "ripcord" is with respect to Shadowlands, and why it's a good analogy?I simply don't understand what the big deal is with not being able to switch covenants on the fly.
Is it really so hard to just not click an article that already mentions Taliesin & Evitel ithe titel if you don't like it? It's not like Classic (where the filter makes sense) that there are multiple news articles per week sometimes, it's one video per week and well lately not even that since they were on break because they moved.
I disagree in comparing Azerite Armor with Conduits just because both have ilvls, their only shared pain point is their reset method, but that wasn't the main argument being bought up in the video anyways.Azerite's constant upgrades have 2 problems and 1 hypocritical statement there, lets start with the former. First problem is the obvious one that plagued us for two tiers, you get a high level piece and it is not an upgrade because unlike your previous piece you haven't unlocked all the rings on it. That was like if you Belt upgrade from thee next raid has the same seconday stats, but you have to still farm to unlock the haste part of it, which keeps your current belt stronger while that happens. Conduits have no such lockout in place and behave as direct upgrades that as soon as you get you can equip(well if it is already equipped it just jumps up to that level).The other problem with Azerite was acquisition. M+ pieces at the start were completely random drops with bad luck protection to eventually assure your weekly chest contained one, while later the residuum let you just assure a random piece for a given slot at a steady rate. Mneawhile in raids for the first 3 tiers the focus was providing most combinations of traits, until Nyalotha provided in general good combinations on purpose. What this means is for the vast majority of time you were either playing a roulette where you had maybe 2-3(many had a single 1) M+ piece with no bad luck protection(unless you stopped rolling for a few months and bought it, but statistically that wasn't actually worth it unless you had future sight and knew you'd have abysmal luck) while raid couldn't provide you with a full actually good set most of the time(even Nyalotha fails at that for many specs). To put a long story short, unless all your wanted pieces were on a raid boss, it was a crap shoot to ever farm them out as upgrades. On the other hand Conduits ALL drop from specific sources, so if you look for an upgrade you know the source for sure and can focus on attaining it, and most importantly as it stands they are personal drops independent of actual loot drops, which means there is no fighting over pieces. If one comes from a World Boss, then you literally just have to kill that world boss, next patch the upgraded version may come from a new World Boss, or be put on a Raid Boss, or part of some new content type, but where ever it is, if you want it you know where to look and if a conduit drops from the source it will be exactly that conduit and it will be your conduit.TL;DR: You never have to worry that a different Conduit will drop from the same source, you never have to fight over conduits as loot nor will they take a place of a drop, if you get a higher ilvl one it is inherently an upgrade to the same one without any farming necessary, every conduit will be available at a higher level every tier(unlike azerite trait combinations) AND getting the higher level ones just inherently upgrades your existing ones rather than replacing them.Now about the hypocrisy. As far as raid pieces went, Azerite pieces filled in everything that every other gear slot he is fine with filled in in a new patch, the item has a new name, slightly different spread(of traits or stats depending on which kind of item we are talking about) and a different appearance, in a sense replacing a lower level conduit with a higher level one from new content is gonna be the same as replacing a Haste Mastery belt from the previous raid tier with a haste mastery belt from the next tier and it having 1:0.66 stat spread instead of a 0.89:0.77 spread doesn't really make it different enough(if anything as conduits scale up some of the less effective ones will reach levels of strength may suddenly be viable) just because the Conduit will be named the same, it ain't that different from getting the NEXT Crit/Haste ring from the raid.
I do think Tali is right that conduits having to be refarmed every patch is going to be boring and unfun.
Great video again guys thank you :)
Haha, I liked that vid. :))
It's just one of those things people are going to have to get over. You either choose the covenant you want to play because you think it's cool, or the one that has the most benefit for your class. Is it going to be balanced? Probably not. But if you're the kind of person that needs to have everything optimized across every. single. system. chances are you're playing whatever is flavour of the month anyway for MAXIMUM OPTIMIZATION. One sub-optimal button on your action bar is not going to lock you out of all content.
