I went through the 9.1 intro once on the PTR but didn't check if there's a skip for alts (mostly the scenario), anyone check that ?
The leveling intro? No skip on live
Why hasn't this been implemented in the first place? Like this is a completly logical thing to do, and it hasn't been present since launch. I hate those decisions so much. If someone wants to farm the Stygia for gem slots on many chars sure, go for it... But for the most of us, the only thing we are doing, is farming the Mawsworn Soulhunter, which is a pain in the ass to do if you don't have The Beastwarrens unlocked, and it serves no purpose to lock it like it was now. I got max Ve'nari rep on one toon, and I should be granted access to everything the minute I log on a different char.Better late than never I suppose.
I didn't even realise there was a rep restriction on entering those areas - that's how engaged I've been with The Maw (and undoubtedly people like me are the reason for these changes... whether it's enough to convince people that the Maw is "fun" well, that's another thing... :)
TBH reaching 'Ambivalent' (hence unlocking the 'Rule 6' quest) isn't that hard, but yeah, it can be a pain in the arse if you want to bring many toons for a shot at the Beastwarrens' mount. Also, I dislike Perdition Hold more than the Beastwarrens, as a whole, and I find it more dangerous too, should be Beastwarrens second then Perdition Hold, but since in Beastwarrens we have another locked area... dunno, seems to get to Korthia we'll need to unlock that one too, first (people in PTR should know more I think).While unlocking Beastwarrens on my more recent 60's, I just logged on them to do the WEEKLY quests (2, then 3 after unlocked Perdition Hold), only then I did Venari's questline. I noticed I only could do 1 per day (at the beginning, with the spaced content, you could do only 1 per week).Oh, and remember the teleport to Tremaculum you unlock with an item you buy from her? After the 'Rule 6' quest is done, you open an additional option on it, so you get a quick 'flight' into the beastwarrens area, instead of walking/Riding there. Useful if you wan't to get there faster, specially if you're joining a group (and better join FROM TORGHAST REST ZONE, right near it, instead from Oribos, to zone into the leader's phase).
I hope they remove this soon."The Maw is an exception. Players in the max-level Maw may not immediately be able to see one another when joining a party. However, leaving the max-level Maw (to Oribos) and returning should bring party members together."
Finally ! I will be able to get exploration archi'.
Nice, Now I can farm that beastwarren mount on my alts as well :D
Still waiting to see if we'll ever go to the frosty area up north. XP
I have a question. So, they said that we can't summon our mounts cause they are afraid of the Maw and I can get that but...what about Aerial Unit R-21/X, Black Battlestrider, Mechanostriders, Frostbrood Vanquishers and even Champion's Treadblade. All those mechanical and undead mounts? Why couldn't we just use them from the start? xD
Technically, I can see the frostbrood vanquisher being scared. Kinda. The quest for the death knight mount has you go into a portion of the shadowlands to get it, and if all undead have started the process into the shadowlands, they may have heard of the maw and how no one returns. Undead want to return, it's kinda their whole thing. I'm not fully sure about how much the lich king having power from the jailor would be involved in this "fear equation", if you will.
At this stage I think this is everything you can get from Ve'nari's reputation being made account-wide or irrelevant by unlocking Korthia.I'm convinced we're going to end up fighting her in the future sometime. Wouldn't be surprised if all the stuff we can buy from her ends up on another vendor and the reputation goes away completely.
Happy for this change, but as someone who diligently grinded out the rep (slowly, and painfully), I wish there was some reward for getting it. Feels like all that early effort was for nothing.
I didn't even know there were sections of The Maw you needed rep for... I am so far behind.
