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. 

 

14 minutes ago, DeathsDesign said:

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?

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.

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.

      The gates of Mythic Uldir have opened and the US and OC servers are coming up after maintenance. Now it remains to be seen who will go in early and grab those World Firsts before the EU an Asian guilds have had a chance to enter the first raid of Battle for Azeroth. As always, we'll have summary posts for each day early in the EU morning.
      Of the possible contenders on the US/OC scene we have Wildcard Gaming, formerly Easy, who have already taken a WF in Heroic, with their G'huun kill, and seem eager to get their new name heard, so they might just be the leading US guild. On the other hand, Limit has been a dominant presence in the US/OC scene for a long time now, grabbing most WFs and being the only real competition to the EU and Asian guilds in the endgame. We also have SNF and Big Dumb Guild who have gotten some World Firsts in the past, and have been known to raid early, so the competition for those first few kills should be high. Blood Legion also seem to have returned after a long hiatus, as they will be raiding "semi-competitively" in BfA, but it remains to be seen what exactly that means.
      As always, we'll be using Method's raid progress coverage for our own summaries and you can head on over to their site to follow the race live, both today with the usual updates and tomorrow with the guild itself streaming the race live. For other streams of the progress race, head on over to twitch's WoW page and you'll be sure to find tons of players showing off their journey through Uldir.
      We'll also be using this article as a hub for all the race summary posts.

      The race is about to begin and you can check out all of our coverage right here.

      Just when you thought they were gone, the hotfixes make their comeback! Today we get some Tol Dagor nerfs, some fixes and improvements for Island Expeditions, including some achievements now being account-wide and a brand new World Quest to win one! There's also the usual PvP and quest fixes, as well as another Heart of Azeroth tweak.
      September 21 (source)
      Dungeons and Raids
      Tol Dagor Overseer Korgus’ Incendiary Rounds’ damage and Blast Rounds’ pushback decreased by 25%. Island Expeditions
      A new world quest has been added to win one Island Expedition. Click on the map and set sail for adventure! Some Island Expedition achievements have been made account-wide. Resolved additional issues that could prevent players from gaining progress in Island Expeditions for the weekly quest “Azerite for the Horde / Azerite for the Alliance”. Items
      Fixed bugs that were preventing Truffles in Stormsong Valley from behaving as expected. Heart of Azeroth Ablative Shielding is no longer reduced by Stagger. Player versus Player
      The Weekly Quest "Something Different" can now be completed by participating in Shado-pan Showdown, as intended. “Something Different” now grants a 340 item level Dread Gladiator piece of gear from the Brawl Footlocker. Players who have already turned in “Something Different” this week can now complete it a second time. World Quests
      Fixed an issue where the "Pest Problem" did not count towards the Storm's Wake emissary. There are now a greater number of Ancient Texts that are “Past Due”. Previous Hotfixes

      A lot of Azerite trait talk today as Blizzard have announced a second round of tuning, focusing on tanks and healers, coming with the next reset. We also got a blue post commenting on the imbalance in the traits and the Mythic+ problem with Azerite armor not being available.

      There's also some PvP class tuning coming next week which you can check out here.
      Trait Tuning (source)
      With scheduled maintenance next week, we intend to make some targeted adjustments to Azerite Traits for tanks and healers. Here's what that currently looks like:
      Blessed Sanctuary bonus increased by 10%. Burst of Life healing increased by 20%. Craggy Bark bonus increased by 15%. Dauntless Divinity block increased by 20%. Depth of the Shadows healing increased by 20%. Ephemeral Recovery mana increased by 15%. Gory Regeneration healing increase increased by 15%. Judicious Defense absorption increased by 10%. Masterful Instincts bonuses increased by 10%. Permeating Glow bonus increased by 15%. Reinforced Plating Strength increased by 10%. Revel in Pain absorption increased by 20%. Savior trigger threshold increased to 50% health (was 35%). Soothing Waters healing increased by 10%.
      You'll see the final adjustments in our hotfixes update post on Tuesday.
       
      Trait imbalance and M+ (source)
      Couple things:
      We agree that the trait imbalance is a real problem right now. We made a bunch of tuning adjustments last week, and have more planned for the very near future (primarily focused on buffing underperforming traits). We see this as the source of most of the frustrations with the system; if the delta between your best and worst traits wasn't so big, it'd be less frustrating when a piece of Azerite armor doesn't have your best trait on it.
      We also agree that the Mythic+ Azerite Armor situation isn't ideal. However, we need to be careful with how we award Azerite Armor through M+. Right now, easier access to Azerite Armor is one of the main advantages that raiding has over gearing exclusively through Mythic+, and we want to keep some additional benefit there as compensation for the extra effort and coordination needed to organize a raid team. That's is why we're hesitant to do something like add a guaranteed piece of Azerite Armor to the weekly chest - it'd be too lucrative.
      But like I said, we do agree that the current setup can be frustrating. We're looking for better options.
