wow Patch 7.1: Alt-Friendly Reputation Changes

12 posts in this topic

3FBLUX5KMNHM1467413586017.jpg

Patch 7.1 delivers some nice changes for alts! The first one is related to Suramar dungeons that have a reputation requirement, while the other one deals with World Quests.

  • In Patch 7.1, the Arcway & the Court of Stars will be accessible to all your alts if you unlock them on your main character.
  • The reputation requirement to start the quest for both dungeons is 8,000/12,000 Honored reputation with The Nightfallen.

The second change is related to World Quests.

  • You won't need to attain Friendly reputation with Legion factions on secondary characters to unlock World Quests.
  • After reaching Level 110, you can go straight to Dalaran, talk to Archmage Khadgar who gives you Flight Master's WhistleFlight Master's Whistle.

The Blood of Sargeras trader Illnea Bloodthorn now sells Order Resources CacheOrder Resources Cache. It's BoA so it may be relevant to your alt.

Some other things I'd like to see implemented that would improve alt quality of life:

  • Account-wide reputation, or the Mists of Pandaria reputation system; you bought a tome to increase reputation gain for your alts by a % after reaching Exalted with a faction "the regular way" on your main.
  • Shared Artifact Power or Artifact Knowledge.

Are you currently playing an alt or are you still busy with your main?

Still busy on my main (Ret Pally) but off and on playing alts.  This will certainly be a welcomed change.

Working my main and one alt right now, hunter and rogue. I generally run alts to cover all professions but right now i am more interested in getting alts to 110 and getting artifact knowledge rolling. I feel like if i do not they will be so far behind they will be unplayable later.

THIS, SO MUCH THIS. The main reason I'm delaying to start leveling my alts if due the whole chores with reputations. Would be so good if they were shared between accounts. Farming for rep more than once is anything but fun.

I'm not sure they're gonna give us shared Artifact Power or Artifact Knowledge. The Artifact was designed to be a progression system, and there's not really any issue with it since no one cares what traits you have.

If they gave us shared Artifact Knowledge, they would be forcing the hardcore players to have tons of level 110 alts so they can all get work orders for it.

I think if a change like this would happen it would be more along the lines of getting artifact knowledge quicker or starting at a certain lvl based on what your highest lvl was among ur toons. 

Considering how big of an alt hoarder I am, I would rly love to see some alt love.

honestly i think the pandaland system would probably be the best, you still need to work a bit on your alt but its accelerated, i did like that system quite a bit. and frankly an ap booster would be nice too, simply because it won't take long to get every trait unlocked, its that 20 stack one they added later that is the mountain, in the end i view the 20 stack as the "hardcore" vs casual divider. So it would be nice to get the basic things faster on alts but then slow it down for the big 20 stack. It may have some implications for mythic races first stuff but that's a minute fraction of the playerbase, "needs of the many". 

granted blizz won't make it too easy, gotta keep us paying that 15 a month

It would be easy to limit 2 work orders per account. AK would be account-wide and upgraded regardless of which character you play with no room for abuse.

Well to be honest, after reading this.  I changed the way I am doing my 3rd character.  

Main toon.  I am Honored all the way across, before I figured out the whole World Quest thing.  I was getting 830/840 Equipment all the time since I had unlocked lots of the Pillar Gear.  But the stuff I was picking up was better so I would just buy it and stick it in the bank.

Second one, I just go to Friendly and moved to the next zone, not really finishing anything.  Not great gear.  I am seeing 800 level gear for world quests.  

Third toon, I am finishing zones then moving to the next.  Concentrating on Leveling Leather-working / Skinning not worrying about rep because of this guide.  I will let you know what I see once I get to 110 and world quests.

even a percentage based artifact knowledge would be nice. 
tie it to level, capped at say 25% of original amount earned and spent on your main
send it to them as a soulbound token they can use on whichever they want

      Trial of Valor Odyn fix, Guarm Mythic tuning and Helya nerfs and fixes are the headlines for this batch of hotfixes, along with the usual class and quest fixes.
      December 6
      Class
      Demon Hunter
      Fixed a bug that sometimes allowed the leech from Soul Rending to persist after Metamorphosis ended. Hunter
      Freezing Trap will no longer cause the target's next cast to fail in certain cases. Mage
      Ice Block's cooldown will correctly reset at the end of an encounter. Priest
      You can now activate and deactivate Shadowform while mounted.  
      Class Halls
      Players who were unable to submit Artifact Knowledge Work Orders should now be able to again.  
      Dungeons and Raids
      Players in a dungeon during a server shutdown should no longer receive the Deserter debuff. Throne of Tides
      Fixed a bug that was causing Mindbender Ghur’sha to be non-interactable. Trial of Valor
      The Patient Zero achievement should now be obtainable, as intended. Guarm
      Increased the radius of Guarm's Multi-Headed from 8 yards to 30 yards on Mythic difficulty. Decreased Guarm's health by 5% on Mythic difficulty. Developers’ Notes: The Mythic difficulty change to the Multi-Headed mechanic is intended to require the use of 2 tanks on the encounter. We also slightly reduced Guarm’s health alongside this change in order to minimize the effect on groups that were accustomed to only using 1 tank. This is already active in the NA/ANZ region, and will take effect in other regions with their weekly restarts.
      Helya
      The magnitude of Corrupted Axion's healing absorb now properly scales down as the size of a raid decreases from 30 players to 10 players. Resolved an issue that would cause Fetid Rot from targeting more players than intended on non-Mythic difficulties. Reduced the health of several enemies in the Helya encounter on Normal and Heroic difficulties. On non-Mythic difficulties, Adjusted Orb of Corrosion no longer targets Helya's tank targets, similar to its behavior in Mythic difficulty. Odyn
      Fixed an issue that could cause Odyn to sometimes cast a lethal Unerring Blast during the final phase of the encounter.  
      Items
      Many trinkets available from Timewalking holiday dungeons and vendors have had their effects adjusted to more closely match the power level of Legion trinkets.  
      Player versus Player
      Mass Invisibility can no longer be cast on allies holding battleground flags and orbs.  
      Quests
      Havi's message when a player completes "Now That's Just Clawful" will no longer be displayed to all players in the area. World Quest map markers for Kirin Tor World Quests should now function correctly. During “Barrels o’ Fun”, a swirling holy light now radiates from the barrel that needs to be tracked. Players no longer get roadblocked if they teleport out of Well of the Forgotten after interacting with the Bone Pile for the quest "The Rite of the Executioner". Previous Hotfixes.

      Hello,
      Im long time lurker on class guides, and Id like to suggest and ask if you could add numerical stat weights in class spec guides. Pawn addon config string would be perfect but just numerical values would be also great. What do you think about it?
      Thank you in advance

      18 micro-holidays tested over the next 3 weeks, you're sure to find a few that you'll love!
       
      The micro-holidays that are being introduced in 7.1.5 are going to be tested in the next 3 weeks and, as a lot of them won't be seen on live for months and months after the patch launches, jumping on the PTR and taking a look now is a great way to see which you should look forward to or care about! With 18 holidays available you're sure to find a few that are just right for you - personally I'm betting on Call of the Scarab for those sweet "world server down" memories of opening the AQ gates.
      Lore (source)
