I want badges back not anima.
Currency could be improved, but this can be added later when the PvP, M+ and Raiding have settled down a bit and there is some currency that would be relevant for power there. Right now there doesn't seem to be anything, other than say Legendary Soul Ash.Sidenote: Having the option to get COSMETIC currency is something I like. There are people who are going to do some of the gear grind but care far more about cosmetics. Having that be an OPTION is a good thing IMO. Add in a relevant currency like Soul Ash, and you're good.
Anima has no place in power player, it's purely for sanctum and cosmetics. It should reward something akin to Titan Residuum which you could trade for better gear once you had enough.
I thought they mentioned that it was going to be a currency you could buy specific gear with, if you didn't get something you wanted. Isn't anima just for your covenant base / cosmetic stuff?
Does the item level of the gear you get increase with the difficulty of the unlock? For example for completing 1 mythic dungeon it gives you 190 ilvl gear and completing 10 mythic dungeons gives 215 ilvl gear?
I was expecting it to be tied our reroll coin since we haven't heard much of it at the moment. Still a bit strange that if your chest doesn't offer you an upgrade you baiscally get a currency that doesn't really offer player power.
As expected. Seems reasonable. Hoping the "currency gain curve" isn't designed with picking This option in any way though! This should feel like a good way to skip ahead on your anima, and not something that you desperately want to pick as well as gear. Or it will end up feeling like you're picking a 2% dps increase or those really cool cosmetics that essentially is the new end-game of WoW.
Come on Blizzard, make Anima the new Valor/Justice points and let us earn it also through m+ and trade it for something actually useful. M+ now feels pointless, you can never get any upgrades anymore, no matter how much you play, no matter how high the key you do is, there is a 0% chance to get an item upgrade, once your item lvl is at a certain point. Having only the weekly chest feels so bad man. With Titanforging (I'm glad it's gone) you at least had the chance to get something good out of the end of dungeon chest, now there is NO such chance and it is awful!Let us earn Anima in m+ dungeons and spend it on item lvl upgrades for Mythic + gear! Make it a huge grind, so nobody feels forced to do it, but give the M+ community some love. Not everybody wants to or can raid Mythic and M+ers don't want to wait 10-12 weeks before they can get good gear to do what they love: push high keys! Don't ruin this expansion for the M+ community.
Problem is if they do that the high end raiders etc will feel forced to do it no matter how miniscule the power increase would be. And we know they also will do it and grind it until they pass out.
Ahahahah. Again, the last part of their initial promise has been effectively turned into a lie.And yes, it is still absolutely lying if you say something, fully aware of how it will be taken, while either meaning or then doing something completely different. Without exception, literally every single person I talked to, every single comment I ever saw on this, believed the currency had something to do with eventually buying a piece of gear as RNG protection from not getting a good piece in the cache week after week. Getting more AP is pure trash and is pure dishonesty. They knew that wasn't what they were saying. They knew that wasn't what we were excited about and they made this garbage anyway. Legit disgusting, but par for the course at this point.
As many others have already said... Bring back Valor/Justice points or make Anima a new version of them and let us use it to purchase gear. With the changes to M+ loot (only 1 item per dungeon) this is even more important.I honestly never thought I'd see the day that Blizzard takes a massive dump on M+ with as popular as they have become... 2020 is a crazy year for sure.
Neat... since they said the currency from the vault could be banked for better gear, that means you can buy gear with anima. Oooooooooooor, they lied to us again. Hmmmm, why do I feel like their track record is leaning towards the latter rather than the former?
The original promise was Currency that will allow you to eventually buy a specific item. Instead, anima. Thanks!
