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

      Tomb of Sargeras is a nine-boss raid brought with Patch 7.2. It won't open immediately on patch day and will be available at a later point just like Nighthold. In this video, we've explored the raid's architecture including the very depths of the Tomb!
      Please note that the video may contain spoilers / boss rooms within the Tomb.
      The raid's depths are very similar to the Throne of Thunder and Ulduar combined with elven architecture.
      Please use the spoiler tag when discussing details, especially the KJ encounter.

      Ban-Lu, Grandmaster's Companion is Monk's Class Mount. It doesn't have any color variations at this time and we're not sure if Blizzard plans to add different tints in future builds. Monks can get a pet from their Order Hall that perfectly matches their new mount. You'll probably have to unlock all Artifact traits to purchase it if it's gated like the new Death Knight pets.

       Ban-Fu, Cub of Ban-Lu (NPC - Ban-Fu, Cub of Ban-Lu) can be purchased from Mei Chele for 10,000 Order Resources.  Pet Abilities Spirit Claws Moon Tears Prowl Jade Claw Feed Vengeance
