Patch 7.2.5 - Heirlooms & Flightmaps for Alts

Recommended Posts

IkRyeb8.jpg

Patch 7.2.5 continues to improve the alt experience with Heirlooms that will scale up to Level 110 and flightmaps.

Alt Improvements continue with every Legion patch and Patch 7.2.5 is no different. The first big change is that heirlooms now scale up to Level 110. Combined with Legion flying and Demon Assaults, you'll level up your alts in no time.

The following items have been added to vendors

For 15,000 Gold you can purchase a flightmap that unlocks various flight points in Eastern Kingdoms / Kalimdor. Both need to be purchased separately for a total of 30,000 Gold.

If you're a returning player, don't forget to read our 7.2 tips here.

It is a good but not necessary thing to give flight points to alts. Would anyone really use them ? Everyone levels in dungeons after lvl 15 and when you reach 60+ you have flying so you don't need flight points anymore. I know that having a lot of flight points makes it easier if you wanna go between places and AFK while you do it. But I would never pay 30k gold to get all flight points on alts, i'd rather spend it on 310% flying mount speed on several characters.

Getting heirlooms is really nice :) as someone who lvled about 25 characters to max lvl in various expansions this is a real blessing.

I wonder what the price will be and if any heirlooms will be added in Legion, like another slot herilomm: boots,wrists hands?

Honestly i don't get the flight master map, who uses Flight masters on Kalimdor and Eastern Kingdoms?

Maybe it will help zone leveling. By the time I reach a new zone and discover its flight path, the dungeon queue pops up twice and I outlevel the zone by two and more levels.

I've noticed more than once someone asking for a ride to a far-flung point because they picked up the next relevant quest from the command board and they don't have a flight path to it.

Not everyone levels in dungeons. And not every low character is leveling.

Man, those maps... if those were the prices to open them account wide then maybe, but individually? I know they want some gold sinks but man... 

Their toys that means their already account wide items

15k each per character is waaaay too high, if a new player to wow wants this it will literly force them to buy a wow token to cover these prices... I can understand how shitty it is when low levels have to travel from undercity to, for example,  wetlands or from orgimmar to ferales. 

Heirlooms sounds good tho :D

EDIT: 

Didnt notice that those maps where toys. but its still tooo expansive.

I don't care much one way or the other if my alts have all the flightpaths and I certainly wouldn't pay that kind of gold for them.

No, not everyone levels through dungeons. I've leveled 4 characters from 1-110 so far in this expac (including 3 somewhere in between) without grinding dungeons. Blizzard has heavily increased the experience gains from questing, and it is a much less repetitive and stupid way to level, even if it is a bit slower than dungeons. Don't assume that just because something isn't worth it for you,, it's worth nothing at all. With millions of players, there are TONS of us that are going to love this, as it will be AMAZINGLY useful and completely worth the price for questing, especially in a WoW economy where making 15k gold takes 2 hours if you know what you're doing with profs.

*Quick edit* No, at 60, FPs are still better, because they are as fast as 70 flying (100% movement speed more than the 160% you get from basic flying) even if they wind about a bit.

It's clearly not meant for NEW players, but ALTS.

Blizzard, what the actual fuck. 15k per continent? I get that we can buy gold legally now, but don't shape the game after the assumption that everyone buys gold or grinds professions all day.

I be to differ, while i do some dungeons, but from experience with today's generation of gamers, they are unreliable, they are quick to blame others for their mistakes, i mean mistakes happen, its how you learn from them and how to get back on the bike, so to speak that matters more in the end, but they just blame others to save their pride and ego and then leave, crying to their mommy or daddy, whichever applies to them.

The Problem with MMOs now-a-days is the lack of a good community, most, if not all players that do group content only go for people that are overly qualified to do said content, i have seen ti enough on Twitch Streamers, they only accept players that are way over geared, way over experienced, ignoring anyone that can't promise a perfect and easy run.

Hell, even now-a-days you can't even do anything without being told HOW to do it, i mean it takes away all the fun of figuring it out by making mistakes, but hey, i just like to figure things out for myself, i mean seriously do people play mystery genre games with a walkthrough guide? i don't, i like to figure it out myself, its so much cooler and it gives a much more better sense of achievement.

Well, Once you have 1 character at level 110, the gold you make is so insanely high, 15k gold is not that much at all....not to mention those that have spare real life money spare, can buy wow tokens and sell them for like 60k-150k, depending on the realm and i have roughly 250k gold now, not much compared to others, but doing dailies, while tedious and repetitive is alot more interesting than repeating the same dungeons all day long and not to mention the more often than not 30mins wait in queue only to be queued up with players that die once and give up.

I am sure not everyone is like that, but this latest generation clearly wasn't taught to never give up, especially after a single try.

Although 15k can be quite high for such a small thing, i would suggest Blizzard makes it an account-wide thing like the Heirlooms, where 15k and 30k for an item to upgrade the heirlooms is worth it.

Why end it with *You know what I mean?* to make it sound like what you said had anything to do with what I said ? When it really didn' :P I agree with you completely with the whole figuring shit out by failing and learning and I didn't say anything that would go against it in my post. And ofcourse Streamers goes for the best geared / classes to get carried the most.

Like Asmongold said in one of his Youtube clips (not quoting directly) but it was something like; "If you get offered $1mil or $1mil and $1dollar, why would you go for the lesser one ?"

I know some will say *oh taking the bigger amount is just greedy and selfish and blah blah blah*. But who said that the one taking the money would keep it only to himself. You saying that you've seen streamers only accept players that are overgeared and experienced, but I've also seen WoW streamers, like Quin69, take a full raid of overgeared people (including himself on his main) and then invite 2-3 randoms that are WAY undergeared, their average ilvl is almost 50ilvls lower than what drops in the raid, and carry them through the raid and give them all the loot.

I would take the $1mil.....that extra $1 is rather pointless.

What you want is a progression group, there are plenty out there and they're easily found. People play how they want to play, it doesn't make them lazy or you better because you like to progress whereas they like to run through it quickly. People have 10 plus alts they run through content, there's simply not time to do progressions on every single toon. You also can't expect to find a ton of people who don't know the raids a few weeks after it's been out, most people that raid will have already been doing them. It's great you like to play the way you do, just don't look down on others because they prefer a different way.

On another note, I have no idea what peoples issue is with 30k gold for FPs? This has been a great help to me personally and 30k gold really isn't that much. People seem to be confused and not know it's account wide as well. So I could hop over to the alliance side (puke) if I chose to and have FPs to all the zones ready to go! It's a great addition to me and well worth the gold.

The heirloom toy maps are 10,000 a piece, not the 15,000 quoted in the original post, I just purchased them in game, so it's 20k, total if you want them for both factions. Horde Only (Walking Kalimdor with the Earth Mother) and  Alliance only (The Modernize the Provisioning of Azeroth).   I bought the one for my void elf, and it gave me a fair amount of flight paths (see screen shot). I've only quested in Darkshire at this point, so this was just learning nearly from scratch what was taught by the book. 

It's one use only.  There is no re-clicking it over and over to learn more flight paths, you use it once, and you learn what it offers you.  I highlighted the three yellow boots I self learned, everything else was from the book, The Modernize the Provisioning of Azeroth

I liked the idea, I've played for a long time on WoW, and running to get flight paths takes time, even if you're questing, so this saved me time, and now when I level my other toons, which I'm sure I will with the new system, it'll make it easier to get around in Classic WoW.

      Ogrimmmar has tried to express various WoW zones via emojis, and there's a pretty fun guessing game in there as well!
      It's pretty fun trying to decipher the pictograms and where they belong exactly, with some being pretty obvious, and one even being a bit misleading/confusing (see if you can spot that one). You can check out the solutions below the image, and see how well you did (the last one is especially solid)!

      And here are the answers:
      Number 8 was the problematic one, as the author combined Silithus and Uldum, but the rest are pretty much on point. Also, this obviously needs to be a thing for WoW terms in general, as it's pretty fun spotting the intended meaning, and we could use some tougher ones!

      We've seen the rise of the new breed of specless players back in the pre-patch, but now they're coming to Shadowlands as well!
      Jirasonis took things to the next level with a Priest and got to 60 without choosing a spec, but then also continued playing without one! A Black Temple timewalking raid completed, they're now gearing up to actually do Mythic+ and Shadowlands raids as well, without the aid of Holy, Discipline or Shadow! Being specless beings some other endgame issues, however, as you can't pick a Soulbind without a spec due to the way the quest works.

      In case you weren't aware, the Shadowlands pre-patch made choosing a spec optional, as one isn't chosen automatically for you anymore, which saw players get to level 50 in this new way. This also isn't the first 60 specless, as willwarb, who was also the first 50 specless, has already done it, but we didn't quite catch that at the time. 
      Here's what Jirasonis had to say about the experience:

      Blizzard talk about the specifics of the Valor caps and how they will be accelerating them due to the systems late addition, with a 5000 cap to start, increasing by 750 each week. You also won't be able to hoard it, as a character can only hold 1500 at a time.
      Valor (source)
      As we’ve tested and iterated on the changes in patch 9.0.5, we’ve concluded that Valor for Mythic Keystone Dungeon gear would benefit from an immediate kickstart, so we’re adjusting the configuration of Valor caps. This currency is being added well into Shadowlands Season 1, so we want to pace it as though it’s been available for several weeks, giving players a large measure of gear catch-up capacity from the start.
      In 9.0.5, there will be a weekly Valor cap that increases by 750 Valor each week, and the cap will start at 5000 Valor earnable in the first week. In the second week of 9.0.5, the Valor cap will be 5750. In week 3, the Valor cap will be 6500, etc. There will be a cap of 1500 on how much Valor a character can hold at a time. As always, thank you for your testing and feedback.

      The Alliance Castle Nathria Mythic Hall of Fame is finally full, but it appears that a Chinese boosting guild has filled it with many Cutting Edge runs discovered by players through Warcraft Logs.
      The Alliance has filled the Hall of Fame 29 days after the Horde, but according to reports, a Chinese guild named Q728 has sold more than 50 Hall of Fame / Cutting Edge pilots this tier. The alleged boosting occurs in each tier, but it is super obvious this time around.
      Reddit user Drathos1337 provided us with two interesting Warcraft Logs links. The first one links to their rosters and contains hundreds of characters with oddly similar performance on the final bosses after not performing that well on early ones, which hints at pilots. The second link contains their calendar, where you can view the individual runs.
      Many players are calling for a complete overhaul of the Hall of Fame system due to the boosts and Alliance taking a long time to fill it.

      We've seen plenty of WoW recreations in other games, from Minecraft, the Sims and so on, but this is a pretty new one as a part of Stormwind has been made in Tony Hawk's Pro Skater!
      While the details aren't exactly high, the architecture seems to be all there, but more importantly it looks to be a pretty solid skate park, with plenty of places to grind, wheelie and other skating terms I definitely know and didn't google like like ollie, boardslide and darkslide. The music isn't half bad either!
      This particular map is only available on the PS4, however, but it's still damn cool to just look at.
