wow Bonus Rolls in WoD: Seals of Tempered Fate

1 post in this topic

6973-bonus-rolls-in-wod-changes-incoming

Bonus Rolls, introduced in Mists of Pandaria, will be sticking around for Warlords. While inv_misc_coin_18.jpgLesser Charms of Good Fortune currently are the only source for obtaining the 3x inv_arcane_orb.jpgWarforged Seals needed for bonus rolls each, in Warlords of Draenor there will be a variety of different ways to acquire your 3 weekly ability_animusorbs.jpgSeals of Tempered Fate (the WoD equivalent for Warforged Seals). Each of the 6 methods we present in the article awards 1 Seal of Tempered Fate, meaning that you do not need to do each of them every week, merely three.

Learn how to earn Bonus Rolls in Warlords and the new uses for Lesser Charms in 6.0!




Ashran Weekly Turn-ins


Just as with the weekly turn-in for inv_arcane_orb.jpgWarforged Seal, ability_animusorbs.jpgSeal of Tempered Fate are earned on a weekly basis and cap at a maximum of 10 per character at a time. The most common way of obtaining these is through the four weekly quests offered by Arrakoa in Ashran, located within each faction's hub. For Alliance players, Fate-Twister Seress is located at the southern point of Stormshield; for Horde players, Fate-Twister Tiklal is located at the western edge of the long, thin peninsula in the Warspear base.
 

Sealing Fate: Gold


At a cost of 500 gold, this is perhaps the most straight-forward method of obtaining bonus rolls. In Warlords, gold should be more plentiful and easier to obtain in general than in previous expansions:

Blizzard Icon Watcher, on Gold replacing Valor and Justice for rewards

Honor and Conquest definitely are not going away, just to clarify a misconception - you'll still be earning those currencies through PvP and using them to buy your PvP gear.

What will be going away is Justice and Valor. Over time, they've moved away from their original purpose, and given how widely available they'd become (awarded from quests, scenarios, dungeons, raids, etc.), we'd rather return to the original universal currency: gold. The final values aren't hooked up yet, but the old Valor rewards for completing your daily random dungeon or an LFR wing will be replaced with a hefty sum of gold, which should make something like the gold turn-in for a bonus roll seem far more attainable even for players who currently don't have much gold.

That said, the feedback/suggestion of allowing repeat turn-ins definitely has merit, and it's something we'll discuss and consider.

Sealing Fate: Apexis Crystals


For 1000x inv_apexis_draenor.jpgApexis Crystals, this is another fairly farmable method of getting a bonus roll each week. Apexis Crystals can be earned from many sources, including killing rare spawns throughout Draenor, completing the daily Garrison "Strategic Assault" quest (800), and completing the daily Battle in Ashran quest (1000). The drawback from using this weekly as one of your sources of Seals of Tempered Fate is that, early on at least, Apexis Crystals are a major source of gear upgrades.

Sealing Fate: Garrison Resources


If you have inv_garrison_resource.jpgGarrison Resources to spare, you can choose to spend 200 of them for a weekly bonus roll. As with inv_apexis_draenor.jpgApexis Crystals above, Garrison Resources will be quite at a premium early on in Warlords due to their importance in establishing your Garrison and for the purchase/exchange for other materials used by professions. In addition to earning Garrison Resources while questing, these are also dropped most commonly by rares around Draenor, and via repeatable item turn-ins at your Garrison.

Sealing Fate: Honor


If you are a casual PvPer or just have some to spare, spending 500x pvpcurrency_honor_horde.jpgHonor Points is the fourth Ashran weekly quest option for obtaining bonus rolls. Participating in Ashran battles or queuing for Random Battlegrounds will remain the most efficient ways to farm Honor Points in Warlords.
 


Garrisons


There are two additional ways in which to earn ability_animusorbs.jpgSeals of Tempered Fate via specific buildings or a bit of RNG inside your Garrison.

Dwarven Bunker / War Mill (Level 3)


Upon leveling a Dwarven Bunker / War Mill to Level 3, you will be provided with one ability_animusorbs.jpgSeal of Tempered Fate per week. As with all Level 3 garrison buildings, the blueprint is tied to a specific achievement. The blueprint for upgrading this garrison building to level 3, inv_garrison_blueprints3.jpgGarrison Blueprint: Dwarven Bunker, Level 3 (Alliance) or inv_garrison_blueprints3.jpgGarrison Blueprint: War Mill, Level 3, requires the achievement achievement_garrisonfollower_levelup20.jFilling the Ranks, which requires that you raise 20 garrison followers to level 100.

Mission: Drov the Ruinder


Drov the Ruiner is a Rare Level 100 Garrison Mission for three of your followers. Given the random nature of missions, it is not advised to plan on having this mission available as a source of one of your bonus rolls every week. Instead if you do happen to get this mission, if you already have procured three ability_animusorbs.jpgSeals of Tempered Fate through other methods in the current week, it is recommended that you hold on to it and not assign followers to complete it until after weekly resets happen.
 


Lesser Charms - Now For More Than Just Bonus Rolls!


If you're like me and have literally thousands of inv_misc_coin_18.jpgLesser Charms of Good Fortune that you never thought you'd ever be able to spend, there is good news ahead! In addition to being used for inv_arcane_orb.jpgWarforged Seal -- which will have no weekly limit on how many sets of 3 you can purchase -- come 6.0 players will also have the ability to spend 50x Lesser Charms of Good Fortune to upgrade their MoP-level blues and epics one time, the current equivalent of spending 250 pvecurrency_valor.jpgValor Points or 500 pvecurrency_justice.jpgJustice Points. This means that upgrading a Siege of Orgrimmar item to 4/4 will require 200x Lesser Charms of Good Fortune. The major impact of these changes are twofold.

First, you will be able to use a bonus roll on every boss within Siege of Orgrimmar. For those guilds who are looking to the 6.0 changes as the extra boost they need in order to kill Garrosh on Heroic or Mythic for the first time (to secure their raid team's leveling heirloom weapons), or those who are looking to finish gearing out alts in preparation for leveling in Warlords, this will be a pleasant power boost.

Second, this change means that, if members of your raid maintain multiple offsets of gear or manage to snag a bunch of upgrades in the weeks leading up to the launch of Warlords, the only limiting factor in having those items be fully 4/4 upgraded is spending some time grinding out rares on the Timeless Isle! Once again, not being limited to one full upgrade per week will be a welcome power boost.

      Hello!
      Were a newer raiding squad that feels we need some more like minded people for our raid team. I'm filling out my squad for mythic content and am currently looking for ranged DPS and healers especially. Any class is more then welcome to apply and or contact me in game. We like to have fun and enjoy our raids. We have a discord channel like everyone else and just want to push ourselves over the edge. That means I need you. We won't micro manage you or kick you from the guild cause your DPS is 10k short of what is expected at your Ilevel. We understand. It's all about improving. We believe in the whole being greater then the sum of the parts or whatever else non sense sounds enticing. Were a progression team and know heroic well. I'm just tired of pugs when I could have some guildmates instead. We will help you gear and get better. If you like PvP we have people for that as well.
      We raid on Tues and Thurs at 8:30PM to 11:30PM EST. Monday is optional at the same times.
      You can either respond to this message or message me in game. 
      Thank you for your time,
      Xose

      Överskattad är en helsvensk guild på Kazzak EU med tight teamspirit som söker  ranged dps i form av: mage/hunter/boomkin samt 1 resto druid eller holy paladin för vidare mythic progress. 
      ==RAIDTIDER==
      Vi är en semi-hardcore guild som raidar 3 dagar i veckan:
      Onsdagar 19.00-22.00
      Torsdagar 19.00-22.00
      Söndagar 19.00-22.00
      Ibland förekommer extra raids på måndagar i form av HC clear och annat skoj, utöver detta lirar vi mycket mythic+ med varandra och håller gearet i check.
      ==PROGRESS==
      För närvarande är vi 4/7M och 2/3H och siktar in på att nå 7/7M och 3/3M innan Nighthold.
      ==AMBITIONER OCH MÅL/STRÄVAN==
      Som progress guild satsar vi på att nå långt i mythic raids och uppnå achievementet "Cutting edge" i alla raids som kommer att släppas i Legion.
      Vi är ett gäng med bra laganda och vi värnar oerhört mycket om våra guildmembers. Det är viktigt att vi trivs med varandra socialt och vi lägger ner mycket vikt på att få ihop ett stabilt team som pushar framåt men samtidigt har kul och trivs tillsammans. Vi ser oss själva som en andra familj utöver "real life" när folk vill fly ett tag från verkligheten och bara ha det kul. Därför är det viktigt för oss att hålla god kvalitet under raids och vara omringade av stabilt folk som vill sträva mot samma mål.
      ==LEDNINGEN==
      I ledningen sitter officers med över 10 års erfarenhet av World of Warcraft. Ledningen lyssnar oerhört mycket på övriga members för att uppnå en så hög standard som möjligt. Det är viktigt att ha någon att vända sig till om det skulle uppstå konflikter, därför består våra officers av mogna och erfarna spelare med ålder på 25+ med många års erfarenhet i diverse guilds. Vi anser att det är viktigt att se problem från olika synvinklar och lösa dom internt istället - detta innebär att ledningen alltid är beredda på att ge folk en extrachans så länge vi ser att viljan och ambitionerna finns hos spelaren i fråga.
      ==VAD VI SÖKER==
      För oss är det viktigt att hitta spelare som främst dyker upp till raids och som kan spela sin klass, men det är också viktigt att ställa vissa krav på dig som söker sig till oss i Överskattad - dels för att hålla god kvalitet i raids, men också för att bygga upp en trivsam atmosfär och ett i särklass socialt och trevligt team. Därför ställs följande krav:
      [ul]* Du är aktiv och engagerad i din klass när det kommer till gear (via t.ex. mythic+, simcraft samt patch-changes).
      * Du dyker upp i tid och informerar minst 24h innan raiden hålls.
      * Du kommer till raids med fullt fokus och fullt förberedd, taggad på att pusha framåt(runes, flasks, pots, respecc tomes, healing pots och påläst på taktiker).
      * Du kan ta konstruktiv kritik för att kunna förbättras som spelare (vi är aldrig elaka när vi ger denna kritik - det är endast för att vi ska kunna utvecklas som team).
      * Du tål wipes och har tålamod och förståelse att det krävs för att komma framåt - ragequitting gynnar ingen.
      * Du är hängiven och pålitlig och sköter dig när du inte spelar med guilden (för att undvika att dåliga rykten om guilden sprids).
      * Du har respekt för andra spelare, andra spelares nationalitet och har förståelse över att folk inte har samma bakgrund/uppväxt.[/ul]
      Vi söker ALLTID duktiga spelare inom alla klasser och specs - så tveka inte på att slänga in en applikation på vår hemsida eller whispra oss ingame!
      ==KONTAKTA OSS==

      Patch 7.1.5 brings heavy changes to some classes and the developer team discusses with the community the latest class changes.
      The latest class changes can be found here.
      Hunter (Marksmanship)
      Sigma
      There's a lot to discuss here--some we agree with and some we don't--but I want to swing by at least on this specific observation. We agree we don't want a major breakpoint between 2 and 3 Aimed Shots after a Marked Shot (at least, not at a middling amount like 21% haste that will affect gear choice throughout the expansion). We're not decided on a fix yet; in particular, whether the standard amount should be two Aimed Shots after a Marked Shot, or three (if two, it would still be okay to have three during Bloodlust and similar situations). The ability would be tuned around whichever option. Two has some advantages like concentrating the Vulnerable burst more, requiring standing still for less time to fully utilize it, and potentially having enough leeway for an instant before one of the Aimed Shots.

      Monk (Windwalker)
      Ornyx
      Hey all,
      Just to reiterate here (saw it brought up in the Live Q&A chat today), but we are aware of feedback regarding both Storm, Earth, and Fire and Serenity on the 7.1.5 PTR.
      I don't have anything specific for this moment, but know that we've passed along notes on both of these skills to the development team. We will update you once we have more to share.
      Thank you for a response - any response.
      Please, though, don't let this be like what happened on the 7.1 ptr and the Demon Hunters, where we got this exact sort of message, and then silence. Last time, when that happened, I rerolled to monk. I'm so anxious it will happen yet again. Not necessarily our goal, and I'm not saying we have any changes planned for these two skills within 7.1.5's PTR cycle (I am not sure what's on the plate there for further Monk changes), but I would like to at least work to get something shared on this, whether its a bit of philosophy or otherwise.
      We have had some communication shortcomings over the past while, but we are trying something a bit new with our internal processes which should benefit us all in the long-term. :) He also mentioned that they will be taking a look at Serenity, just as a note! 
      Edit: Here's a link to the portion of the Q&A where Ion and Josh talked about Storm, Earth, and Fire and Serenity.
      (Source)
      Shaman (Enhancement)
      Lore
      Boulderfist is intended as a talent choice that creates some gaps in your rotation, by replacing your no-cooldown resource builder with something that’s overall stronger, but has charges. In 7.1, the recharge time isn’t long enough for those gaps to ever actually happen, especially with the most popular Enhancement talent build adding several more active abilities to your rotation. Its power level was also simply too high, and in this case, we’d rather let this talent have its intended effect on the pace of your rotation and buff the spec as a whole to compensate. 

      Our intent is that if you want to use an ability every GCD, you should choose one of the other options in that row. Boulderfist should result in an overall more methodical pace that is more about having a little time to plan upcoming abilities. When Boulderfist is the hands-down best option in that row, that doesn’t feel like much of a choice, and as we continue tuning for 7.1.5, we hope to address this by bringing it in line with the others.
      While I can appreciate that there was an original design intent behind Boulderfist, the spec as it currently exists on Live is as enjoyable to play as it's ever been since I rolled my Shaman back in BC.

      We've heard it reiterated over and over (and over) again by the developers that if something about a spec felt too mandatory, it would just get rolled into the spec. I play this spec as my main because it is fun; if I cared strictly about maximum overall damage output, I'd focus on my Rogue instead. Changing a mechanic like this runs counter to the design philosophy that's been so oft repeated.
      Thanks for all the feedback; this has been a consistent theme throughout the thread and elsewhere. And we don't want to disrupt the familiar playstyle of 7.1 Enhancement, if in fact the specific pacing of Boulderfist's recharge time is a major part of what makes it work so well. We will still have to address the power level in some way without diluting the feel that's been discussed here. We are currently planning the following for PTR (uncertain on timing):
      Boulderfist recharge time back to 6 seconds Boulderfist no longer gives a bonus to critical strike Rockbiter generates 20 Maelstrom (from 15) (Source)
      Warlocks
      Sigma
      That's all fine and dandy, now get to work fixing warlocks.
      Incidentally--Imp/Succubus/Voidwalker/Felhunter/Felguard all deal 20% more damage. Most of that was datamined normally, but in particular, the increase to Felguard's attack power likely was not (simply because it's something that happens server-side).

      I can think of one other thing worth calling attention to for feedback/testing that may have been missed: Mark of the Ancient Priestess and Mark of the Distant Army should do noticeably more healing/damage and be more worth using. Some of the stat-based neck enchants were also increased, but that will be clear in tooltips. Hidden Satyr scales correctly with gear now as well, and may be slightly weaker, but for the most part the other enchants were buffed to roughly its level.

      54 traits. 65 million Artifact Power. Cerli.
      54 traits. 65 million Artifact Power. Cerli.

      Well, in the wake of Doubleagent and his 110 ding without leaving the Padaren start zone, we have another insane achievement: Cerli from The Maelstrom has maxed out his Unholy Artifact weapon, getting the final, 54th, trait unlocked after acquiring a total of 65 million artifact power. For those of you that may not be aware, after you finish up your 34 normal traits you get the bonus trait you can put another 20 points in. So that's 5 million for the normal upgrades and then another measly 60 until you're maxed. At this point that really is a VERY unholy weapon and you really could say it's devoured someone's life!

      Go here the full event, click to 21 hours in.
      As you'd imagine this took a lot of Mythic+ dungeons, 2067 completed in time, in fact, with 383 Darkheart Thicket, 818 Maw of Souls, 444 Court of Stars and then a meager number of clears for the other ones (64 VoW, 75 WoA, etc), and then there's probably a fair number of runs not completed in time to add to that! In case you were wondering, he has around 53 days played on level 110 and he actually already has 69 million AP at the moment.
      All joking aside, congratulations to Cerli on this achievement and you can check out his stream here, so hop on there and say gz!
