While we haven't gotten any official hotfix notes so far this week, a change was made just before the reset to Argus' loot table, or rather how the epic Pantheon trinkets drop. As of the hotfix, all of the drops will work based on your selected loot specialization, whereas before it was only the first one.

Hey guys! Just wanted to follow up with this since there was quite a bit of discussion and some really good feedback on how the Epic Pantheon Trinkets are awarded. Recently we've pushed forward a change before this current reset.

The Pantheon trinkets for drops after the first now obey your loot specializations. Previously it only followed your loot specialization for the first one and the second was random for your other specs.

Appreciate all of the feedback you guys have been giving us about this!

In case you still haven't gotten one, or have and are a little fuzzy on the exact stats, here's a list of all the epic trinkets and a useful infographic from a quite while ago, courtesy of Mr. Robot:

Who at Blizzard thought that this was a good idea in the first place? I got my trinket on our first Argus kill, then I had to switch from resto to feral halfway through progress, and of course I get every single trinket except the one I actually need. I still haven't got it, and now that my guild has heroic on farm and went into a break til BFA, there is no point in trying to get it.

Blizzard, I love you, but sometimes y'all are a bunch of dumb motherf*$%ers.

Trinket should have been loot based the entire time, or never.

So how are you screwed NOW?  Set your spec and forget it.

The ones you got before were "wasted," sure, but you're not screwed NOW.

If you haven't gotten it by NOW then I'm done, not in the mood to debate or argue over the stupidity of the context of "being screwed".

Stupidity is right. 

Your answer above about 'or never' being set to loot spec-requirement like EVERYTHING ELSE, literally DOES screw everyone Now, and in the future, because it would keep it random.

Of course you're still using your old trinkets - they're not replacing the ones you have.  Theyre hotfixing an issue. 

"I was screwed before, so perpetually screwing everyone else is not screwing myself in the future." 

It's not really a debate.  They fixed something to the way it should be, you're just suffering from what the fix 'fixed' in the first place. 

"I got cancer, but they developed a prevention AFTER I got it so I am getting screwed."

but even in that case until you got the cure you would STILL be screwed.

...I can't even grasp the logical hoops you're jumping through to consider a cure for cancer as 'being screwed' only because you didnt get it sooner. 

Being screwed implies being in a WORSE position than you were in before.  Youve got it, that's bad, but youre not in a WORSE position than you were in before.   It makes so little sense that put in any other context you'd be laughed at.

McDonalds institutes a maximum 30sec wait time for food, you're "screwed" by this because you once had to wait 4 minutes. 

Has everyone that's old enough to have used it been screwed by technology since there's a windows X now, but at one point they had to use windows 95?

Bottom line is:  You got bad trinkets based ona crappy loot setup.

You can either:
A) Continue crappy loot setup (not screwed apparently)

B) Get it guaranteed next drop (get screwed?)

Since we're getting dictionarial...  I'm not 'comparing cancer to loot drops,'

I'm comparing the obvious GREAT nature of this change (which you acknowledge) to the obvious great nature of a cure/prevention/whatever, leading to a feeling of being 'screwed' by this change simply because it didnt happen sooner. 

That literally applies to every analogy I've provided.  Let's get dictionarial:

analogy

  • n.
    Similarity in some respects between things (and I'll emphasize this part to you) that are otherwise dissimilar.

I don't get it.... why you use that examples (the Mc was a really bad one) insted of something that is in the same context..

Kil'Jaden...

in @DeathsDesign  point of view, Blizz screws us when they nerf it right?

I used numerous examples.  if your example of kj finally shows him how ridiculous it sounds then by all means use it. I'm skeptical...

"In his point of view" - literally everyone that loots this item now is going to get the correct spec version as soon as it drops..  period.  he is complaining that it didn't retroactive fix his previous experience. 

 

He is still farming for this. But now it's guaranteed to be right. Ouch, so terrible.

but I was more referring to EVERYONE ELSE that has been waiting for that trinket.

They literally will get it the next drop.

The only better solution is retroactive loot refunds from bliz.  I wont wager how often that's occurred.

has Blizzard not learned that too much RNG is a bad thing from additional feedback this expansion.  If the change was avoidable, then this whole thing could have been prevented

They perhaps did, hence hotFIX, and the improved experience.  Even for you since your next one will be GUARANTEED.  You're not 'screwed' by this patch. 

Again, you're talking prevention which is what this patch does, it prevents any future loot sadness because it WAS random, and NOW is guaranteed.  AGAIN - how are you screwed!? 

"I attacked your views" - I observed OBVIOUS faults in them and have explained why they were obviously faulty ad nauseum, even tho the person being explained to has literally said he wouldn't listen (ie 'deaf ears.') 

If I were a troll would I bother explaining something so seemingly simple, or would I simply say things like "I aint listening" or "your replies will fall on deaf ears" ? 

ETA:  Or maybe a troll would debate the use of the roman numeral X instead of the number 10. ie Windows 10.  But no.  I'll reserve my comments on that and let you tell your own story "Bro"

The only thing guaranteed on the next drop is the Pantheon's Blessing.

omg... You'll note where i said earlier "you still have to farm for it."

You're talking fixing a current problem which is not prevention, it is actually fixing something. 

So the people in the future are not prevented from the same problem you're complaining about? 

 

5 minutes ago, DeathsDesign said:

if I'm wrong I'll admit that I'm wrong, but you seem to have blocked out anything that I may have said that you could possibly agree with.

Your first post literally said this patch screws you, then say in the same comment section that it's a good thing.  I agree with the second part - its the first that both 1) make no sense on its face, and 2) I cannot agree with or see in any way that you could actually be being screwed since 1) is in play. 

I havent 'blocked it out' - not once have I said anything would fall on deaf ears. 
 

22 minutes ago, DeathsDesign said:

So the attempt to use it as an example just fell really flat imo.


...because I used an X (which you knew meant ten), instead of the literal number 10, the point fell flat.  Holy cow.

OK I'm going to stop here because this has gone way too far, you are nitpicking at every little thing.  I'm deleting my previous posts because my intention was to express my opinion as is the case with any thread not get into a pissing contest about who is correct on every little thing.  It was immature of me to point out the Windows 10 thing, so I apologize.

 

@Starym sorry about this.

      Well, that didn't take long! It seems you can't keep the WoW secret finders in the dark for too long, as they've already broken through and managed to obtain the mount! Warcraft Secrets and the secrets discord were hard at work the past few days and today finally bore fruit as they pushed through all the colored crystal monocles and found their way to the Court of Stars.

      From there it's a whole lot of petting kittens and purring, followed by phase-shifting platforms to navigate, and then the goal itself:

      While the very end of the guide hasn't been updated yet, it will be very soon so head on over to Warcraft Secrets and check out the full guide, and you might be riding this crazy thing soon as well.
      And, of course, congratulations to everyone that helped out in the endeavor, it was an amazing performance by all involved!

      The folks over at Warcraft Secrets are hard at work, with The Hivemind mount still eluding them. But that may not be the case for long, as some secrets have already been revealed and a whole lot of clues found. As a reminder, the mount is presumed to be multi-person, and each person on it speeds it up by 10%, so it's one of the most unique mounts to come to WoW in a long time. In any case, there's colored crystal monocles and a lot of puzzle games involved, as well as everyone's favorite shopkeeper Griftah, who starts the whole thing off with the Talisman of True Treasure Tracking which then leads you to Vashj'ir, Skyreach and the Halls of Origination to start with.
      This one's definitely going to be a tricky hunt and you can check out the full guide for all the parts discovered so far and even help out with the search over at Warcraft-secrets.com.

      And, of course, as always, you can also join the Secret Finding Discord to share your findings and get really into the secrets and mysteries of WoW.

      Game Director Ion Hazzikostas recently answered some Battle for Azeroth questions submitted by the Greek WoW community before the expansion came out and here's a summary of the Q&A. We learn more about the removal of Master Loot, Warforging/Titanforging and the stat squish system.
      Q&A Highlights
      The team is excited about Mythic+, but at the same time they realize the incentive to run Mythic+ content with a lower barrier of entry has somewhat affected raiding in general and they're going to continue adding new benefits that are distinctly compelling to make sure raiding is still popular. They wanted to disable gear swapping in Mythic dungeons sooner but felt like doing it in the middle of an expansion in Legion would be bad. An entire Mythic+ dungeon is viewed in a lot of ways just like a single boss encounter, meaning no gear/talent swapping even when you drop out of combat over the course of the run. They're always looking for each spec to have a unique combination of strengths and weaknesses in PvP and that's hard in a game with 36 specializations. If you're Class is highly mobile, it's going to have less survivability. On the opposite side of the spectrum, you can expect to be tankier if you have less mobility. The team mainly focuses on increasing strengths as opposed to mitigating weaknesses. The alternative of always trying to bolster weaknesses leads to a state where everyone's kind of average at everything and that's a less interesting game to play in their opinion. With work done to the stat squish system in Battle for Azeroth, future stat squishes should be fairly easy to execute. They've overhauled every single spell and creature from 2004 through 2018 to complement the new system. No stat squish is needed for at least one expansion. Stat squishes are there to prevent numbers from spiraling out of control when there's no gameplay value out of it. Paladins and Druids in the Legion environment already bring plenty of utility, so they decided not to bring back Blessing of Kings and Mark of the Wild in the end. They're going to add more abilities to Classes whenever there's a need for differentiation. Years ago, loot was much harder to come by. Over the years, the game moved away from a space where you just kill a boss or run some content week after week and never see the item you want. Drop rates are now higher across the board, so you're effectively spending less time getting the item you want. Warforging and Titanforging keep some level of interest and potential growth in those repeated clears and create the opportunity for everything to happen, giving you more incentive to continue raiding the same tier. Sco got a Warforged socketed Polearm halfway through progress that was a giant upgrade for him on his tank that made an immediate difference. In a world where loot is more common, the rare opportunities to have these amazing items retains some moments of excitement. You're much better off doing a high Mythic+ rather than clearing old content for a small chance to get an upgrade. This was a problem especially in Legion, where players went back to clear Emerald Nightmare for a chance to get Legendaries or Titanforged versions of Class sets. That wasn't healthy for the game and they decided to move away from that. The benefits of removing Master Loot have outweighed the downsides so far and there are three things: On the lower end of the organization spectrum, there are guilds that go through trials and historically in the Master Loot world, guilds had very strict control of loot and trials were not allowed to get any loot. For the time and effort spent, the trial would get literally nothing out of it if the guild decided to not make the player a part of the roster. On the high end of the spectrum, we've seen top guilds run the same raid over and over to funnel gear to specific mains. Split raiding made it difficult to balance encounters and provide a challenge for Method and other guilds while still being a fun and satisfying progression experience for the majority of Mythic guilds in weeks to follow. Method's item level during the first week of Mythic would be higher than what typical guilds would have to work with a month later. It worked well in Uldir. Bosses like Mythrax, G'huun and even Vectis were challenges for top guilds without needing massive nerfs. Finally, it lets the team itemize in a somewhat different way. When Master Loot was an option, they had to design loot tables around the possibility of Master Loot, so very niche items (useful only to a handful of people) would drop even though there would be nobody in the raid to wear them. They think the raid composition in place since Warlords (LFR/Normal/Heroic/Mythic) is the right for World of Warcraft. LFR/Normal are serving totally different audiences. LFR is not a social or progress experience. Normal difficulty is for friends and family groups. In Mists, Normal difficulty was similar to Heroic today, groups found LFR unsatisfying and Normal as it was then to be too difficult, that's why Normal exists today in its current form.

      We have some incoming class tuning next week, with some flat % buffs for Feral Druids and Frost Mages, applied to both PvE and PvP.
      Class Tuning for December 18 (source)
      With scheduled maintenance next week, starting on December 18 in American realms, we’re focusing on shoring up a couple of specs that fell a little behind with Tides of Vengeance:
      Druid
      Feral Damage of all abilities increased by 7%. Mage
      Frost Damage of all spells increased by 3%. Both of these adjustments will apply to PvP activities as well.
