Brilliant system design. 10/10 would bang.
Up to ilvl 252 or 278?
TLDR empowered sockets get a 12.5% stat bonus increase (equal to +2 conduit levels).Put your best conduits up-top in the tree.
some power creep.. great content! xD
engaging systems btw
I like this method of "soft nerfing" content by a buff after X time though would be nice if the first row unlocked for all soulbinds the same week/renown.
I feel bad for the people with no conduit energy left.
Another unneeded power creeping system, noice.
Wonder if blizz intended that Pelagos and Niya would have to wait an extra week because they're so strong for really any specs in those covenants.
I love how some Covenants have to wait a week longer to get access to their empowered Conduits on their best Soulbinds; 10/10 design.
Empowered conduits but wont let you socket domination slot gear?
Riveting content design. And then for 9.2 we will get 278 conduits baseline and then 304 enhanced conduits then?So then what about the remaining ranks for conduits that were datamined back in beta?Rank 1 — Item Level 145.Rank 2 — Item Level 158.Rank 3 — Item Level 171.Rank 4 — Item Level 184.Rank 5 — Item Level 200.Rank 6 — Item Level 213.Rank 7 — Item Level 226.Rank 8 — Item Level 239.Rank 9 — Item Level 252.Rank 10 — Item Level 265.Rank 11 — Item Level 278.Rank 12 — Item Level 291.Rank 13 — Item Level 304.Rank 14 — Item Level 317.Rank 15 — Item Level 330.Are we going to get double enhanced conduits for 9.2 from yet more renown pacing (100 or 120 cap)?
I am going to echo what everyone else is saying. System number 123,456,789 of the Shadowlands and it’s just as messy and broken as all the ones that came before it. It’s as though no planning went into these whatsoever even though they are a central point of the expansion. A focal point, btw, not because players wanted it to be but because the devs chose to make it so. And even then they couldn’t manage to make it compelling let alone fun. A slow power creep via dozens and dozens of systems over the course of an entire expansion which rewards players who endlessly grind them out day in, day out is not what the majority of players want. Give us a compelling, well written story, a couple new dungeons, a few raids and plenty of cosmetic rewards to keep us chasing the carrot and call it an expansion. No reason to needlessly over complicated it or try to reinvent the wheel every time. Anyway it’s too late for me, I gave up on this expansion and have let my subscription lapse. At this point I don’t see myself coming back at all for the rest of this mess of an expansion.
Ugh. This whole system is just so disgusting.
What a joke
You get 1 Conduit Energy per Renown you gain, so even you'd be at 0 now, you'll be at 3 after tomorrow's activities of, y'know, actually unlocking these empowered slots.
