Patch 7.1: Alt-Friendly Reputation Changes

Recommended Posts

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?

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

      The skyboxes in older zones have really been looking pretty bad for a long time now, especially with new ones getting so good (hello new Icecrown). Many players have been playing around with adding the new ones to the old zones and it seems like one of those changes that would make basically everyone happy. Well, in case you didn't already know, you can check out what the old zones would look like with the new boxes in-game right now!
      The Storming Saison Brewfest item lets you see some damn impressive vistas in the old zones as well! The item drops off Coren Direbrew in BRD, but is also being sold by the Thunderbrew Apprentice in the Brewfest area of capital cities. Here's a really impressive one of Ogrimmar, courtesy of redditor kierk3gaard:

      Redditor TheVagrantWarrior even got some comparison shots of a few zones with the drink on and off and it's really impressive:

      The second Torghast event that we're previewing is called Chorus of Dead. It transforms you into a monstrosity, granting you access to special abilities while you are inside the tower.
      After Unbridled Darkness, the Demon Hunter Simulator, another special event enabled for testing on the Shadowlands Beta is called Chorus of Dead Souls.
      The Maw Power transforms you into a Deadsoul Chorus, replacing all your abilities with custom ones that you further empower with Anima Powers as you ascend the tower. 
      Chorus of Dead Souls - Assume the form of a Deadsoul Chorus, replacing your abilities with Maw based spells. While in this form, you have 50% increased damage and healing as well as 20% increased movement speed. Friendly players may merge with your form to add to the chorus.


      Your damage and healing will be increased by 50% and movement speed by 20% while in the form.
      List of Abilities
      Wailing Blast - Launches a blast of negative energy at an enemy, inflicting [ 200% of Spell Power ] Shadow damage and interrupting spellcasting, preventing any spell in that school from being cast for 4 sec.  Scream of Pain - Release a wild scream, inflicting [ 90% of Spell Power ] Shadow damage to enemies within 10 yds. Phase Shift - Shifts out of reality, reducing all damage taken by 90% for 1.5 sec. This can be cast while casting. Twisting Shadows - Leap through the shadows, teleporting to a targeted location.
      You can freely move in and out of the form, but you don't want to do that too often.
      Here's a list of all Anima Powers that further enhance Deadsoul Chorus.
      One Piece of Many - While part of a Deadsoul Chorus, your damage and healing done is increased by 25%. Echoing Amplifier - The cooldown of Wailing Blast is reduced by 2 sec. Screaming Statuettes - The radius of Scream of Pain is increased by 5 yds. Aural Fracture - Wailing Blast ruptures the target's ears, inflicting an additional [ 15% of Spell Power ] Shadow damage every 2 sec for 12 sec. Improbably Shifting Orb - Increases the maximum number of charges of Phase Shift by 1. Dangling Soulcatcher - Any time you assume the form of a Deadsoul Chorus or return to corporeal form, you are healed for [ 500% of Spell Power ]. This effect can only occur every 15 sec. Shifting Sustenance - Phase Shift heals all nearby friendly targets within 10 yds for [ 300% of Spell Power ]. Incorporeal Weave - Phase Shift additionally increases your movement speed by 50% for 6 sec. Brand of Instability - While assuming the form of a Deadsoul Chorus, your movement speed is increased by 10%. Twisted Idol - Increases the maximum number of charges of Twisting Shadows by 2 and reduces its cooldown by 2 sec. Contorted Hourglass - While part of a Deadsoul Chorus, time passes 20% faster for you. Aegis of Lost Souls - While part of a Deadsoul Chorus, all damage taken is reduced by 25%. Essence Siphoner - While part of a Deadsoul Chorus, increases Phantasma earned by 50%. Soulburst Charm - Any time you return to corporeal form from existing within a Deadsoul Chorus, you inflict [ 200% of Spell Power ] Shadow damage and blind enemies within 15 yds for 8 sec. This effect can only occur every 15 sec. Arcadne's Feasting Mark - Any time a Deadsoul Chorus that you are a part of casts Phase Shift, you are healed for [ 100% of Spell Power ] Health every 2 sec for 10 sec. Arcadne's Ritual Mask - Any time a Deadsoul Chorus that you are a part of casts Twisting Shadows, you gain 50% critical strike chance for 8 sec. Here is Blizzard's official blue post about special events in Torghast.

      With this week’s update to the Shadowlands Beta, we’re kicking off a test of some special events for Torghast, and we have them set on a daily rotation. The first Anima Hoard you discover on a run will have unique choices that help define the rest of your run.
      The events include:
      Beasts of Prodigum: Your first Maw power chest allows you to gain control of a powerful Maw beast that fights alongside you during your run. Subsequent Maw powers you receive in this run have a chance to modify the beast and grant it special abilities. Chorus of Dead Souls: Your first Maw power chest allows you to assume the form of a Deadsoul Chorus, granting you special abilities. While in this form, your party members can right-click you to join your form and cast on the move. Subsequent Maw powers enhance your Deadsoul Chorus form in a variety of ways. Unbridled Darkness: Your first Maw power chest can grant you a vial of darkness that you can activate. Using it turns your screen completely dark and you are unable to see your surroundings. While under this effect, you gain large combat bonuses. Subsequent Maw powers enhance your combat bonuses or modify the darkness. Please let us know what you think of these as they come around in the Beta!

      We're taking a look at two fan video creations today, with two very different entries. First off we have a really nice overview of all the WoW zones with a very chill fly-through compilation condensed into 15 minutes, showing off the vast variety of places the game has to offer:
      And then it's on to a very different video, a VERY LOUD ONE (no seriously, turn your sound down before you click play), which very adeptly gets the blood going with some great music-matching with very dynamic scenes from the many WoW cinematics. While the edits are perhaps a little too fast, it still came out great and very, VERY LOUD.

      It's time for another WoW in other games edition, as redditor LapisBroSammy has gone through a lot of trouble to remake Dalaran in Minecraft! We've already seen similar projects, like the Atal'Dazar, Orgrimmar and Stormwind, Arathi Basin, and even Lich King projects, so this one fits in very nicely! It a project a few years in the making and is looking damn impressive, especially since It was made in Survival mode, but with mob griefing turned off. Let's take a look at some highlights, and you can check out the full imgur album here as well.
