"Extra experience for alts" - don't be fooled by this. Questing/island expeditions are still faster levelling than doing incursions at the moment. Really disappointing.
How much experience do assault quests give?
I've tested that even with WM on and off due to different amount of people. If you're rushing it they are very very equal, the only upside to do assaults on alts is the XP buff which you should afterwards go use for questing. If you don't plan on questing with the XP buff then there really is no point in bringing alts there :p But the sheer xp of questing and assault are very equal. Depending on what zone and areas there are only a few minutes seperating the two. Indeed this is a bummer for altaholics.
I was getting around 27000 per quest, which seemed about the same as a normal quest, except they generally took longer (especially if you're in war mode and getting ganked as a lowbie).Compare to legion invasions, which were giving ~68k per quest with basically no war mode danger, incursions are very disappointing from a levelling perspective.
I doubt that I will do this unless I can find a pvp group. I spend more time hiding from the horde than actually doing a quest.
War mode is totally not worth the effort. The lag is outrageous and it can take an hour or more just to get the 4 WQ for the assault.
If only I didn't have to choose between conquest and several hundred gold
The difference in the base rewards between Warmode and non-Warmode must be a bug or unintended consequence. As an intentional design decision ... it's clunky.Switching back and forth between modes to compare between and see what set of rewards you want more is silly. E.g In the image the non-Warmode WQ seem to offer more AP rewarding WQ than the Warmode enabled version of them... Why can't they just have the same base rewards?On another note, I think this happened with me earlier in the week on Alliance while killing doomhowl. I killed it on 3 characters, 1st received AP, 2nd received resources, 3rd once again received AP. Was very very confused when it happened.
In the latest Taliesin & Evitel video Evitel praised Incursions with the words:"Yeah, they are basically the same as Legion Invasions. But you know what Legion invasions did not have? WARMODE!"My answer to this:"You know what BFA Incursions do not have? World Quest Group Finder."Honestly, without flying + WQGF i would have probably not used Legion Invasions for leveling. And in Legion you could @#$%ing take a taxi to your destination without having to change continents half the time.Without flying, WQGF and then having to switch continents on top of it it's just not any better than regular questing.
Yeah, if they don't want WQGF I wish they'd use the sharing tech to autophase you with members of your faction doing a world quests and share credit, so you can consistently feel like the world is populated but like you aren't fighting over the quest credits. All the group finder does is slow you down, it's less immersive, not more.Incursions might be better to level with once we have flying and heirlooms, which we had during most of the time Assaults were up in Legion.
So the rewards are only marginally better but not worth suffering the headache of being grave camped by a bunch of ^&*!@#bag players. Yeah... no thanks. I'll stick to PvE Assault.
Not sure where people are getting "an 8th of a level" from. For me an incursion is ~33% of a level for a toon with the taste of victory exp buff and the 5% gem so about 28% without those.As for war mode, miss me with that mess. No bonus is worth the headache of world pvp.
Have they fixed it so that you can actually complete these? I got the quest to do 4 WQ, did those got the follow up and then had to wait for a mob to spawn that dropped a key. Problem is that there were quite a few other people waiting and the guy was only able to be tagged by one person. I gave up and haven’t tried one since.
They also need to fix the fact that the Cache at the end of the quest does not follow loot spec rules. So far ive gotten a 2H int staff in Brm spec, a Agi polearm in balance spec, and a 1H sword in fury, (im not a dummy, my loot spec was right) its simple things like this that really irritate me, becasue i dont play every spec on some of my characters, and the items are often useless to what i am trying to gear ATM. also idk where people are getting the 8th of a level from, i got most of the way from 118 to 119 with 1 incursion in warmode +rested. Did all the WQs and finished up with the quest at the end. It was a greatly needed break from the otherwise awful leveling from 110-120
Like leveling takes a long time haha
