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?

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.

      Several redditors spotted a new entry in the beta/PTR event calendar, featuring the pre-expansion event. It's already started on the PTR and it's called the War of the Thorns, featuring conflict in Darkshore for control of Teldrassil. Now, we know how that particular "control" ends up, but hopefully the event itself won't be as fire-y!
      Also, based on the length of the event, it seems most likely we'll be seeing it come up on live servers on or around July 17th, if we assume it will last until the expansion launch itself, so we have a little over three and a half weeks until we see the pre-expansion event and the pre-patch itself as well! It's a little unclear if the Battle for Lordaeron will be part of the pre-patch or will be available at launch, so the date might actually be a little earlier since it seems logical that the events won't overlap, as one is caused by the other. so another possible date would be July 10th.

      Also, check out what you should do before the pre-patch goes live, as there are achievements to be had that will be removed.

      A little bit before the end of Legion, it's time to determine once and for all who's the best Mythic+ team worldwide in the second installment of the Mythic Dungeon Invitational!
      The action begins tomorrow at 09:00 am PDT and will continue on for the entire weekend. You can tune in on the official Warcraft Twitch channel to watch the final showdown between the eight finalists. The team compositions aren't known yet, so it's not sure if any changes have been made for the grand finals. Still, let's find out a bit more about them!
      Representing China, we have Skyline D and Sun Sky, both of whom unfortunately couldn't fly to Columbus, Ohio, so they will be playing from their home country. Being the first region to start the Group Stage, China was the one to look for. Skyline D went undefeated with their 3-melee DPS composition and they displayed various tactics that were subsequently copied from teams from other regions. Sun Sky showed what a beast Arcane Mage is in Black Rook Hold, prompting Blizzard to finally hotfix the buff Mages could spellsteal in that dungeon.
      In the Americas, we see crowd favourites and record setters Method NA, as well as Team Omegasniped. Even though they don't have their Demon Hunter tank Shakib, Method NA is still in it to win it. Earlier this year, Starym sat down with this all-star team in a two-part interview (Part 1 + Part 2)! Team Omegasniped also has some well known players, who are pretty versatile in the class they play with depending on the dungeon.
      Europe is my region, so I am excited to see one of our two teams be victorious. Kjell's Angels, the only finalist team with a Balance Druid (Kjell), were victorious in the European Group Stage. Team PogChamp also shined through their regionals and they were subsequently picked up by Method. Method PogChamp is a team with popular streamers, two caster DPS and Drjay is ready to set things on fire!
      Lastly, from the APAC region we have the defending champions from the previous MDI, Free Marsy. Even though they were considered an outsider last year, they finished victorious and they had a pretty convincing performance in the Group Stage. Unfortunately, for the Global finals they've had to sub their healer. The other APAC team is Gulch Trotters, who are also a force to be reckoned with.
      The rules are slightly different from the Group Stage; we have covered them in this article. Essentially, we will see higher keys (23 to 25), affixes locked per map with Skittish making a return, greater variation of maps and an increase of the Artifact weapon's item level to 995. The rules for remakes, which plagued the Group Stage, are much clearer and stricter now.
      May the best team win!

      Blizzard just released a preview of PvP changes coming in Battle for Azeroth. Your rank will be displayed in real time, rated play in any bracket will count toward earning Vicious mounts, and more!
      Highlights
      Blizzard wants to increase clarity and offer a structured progression that recognizes players' accomplishments in real time as they climb through ranks in BfA. Rewards that await in specific brackets will be clearly displayed in the game's interface. Conquest points are back as a measure of Rated PvP activity. If you've filled up your Conquest bar for the week, you'll receive a reward in the chest of an appropriate item level (similar to the weekly Grand Challenger's Bounty chest). in Battle for Azeroth, Rated play in any bracket—including 2v2! —will count toward earning Vicious PvP mounts. Blizzard (Source)
      With the upcoming Battle for Azeroth expansion, we’re overhauling the game’s PvP progression and reward systems. Today, we wanted to take some time to break down those changes and provide some information on what Rated Battleground and Arena participants can look forward to.
      New Tiers and Rating Bands
      For years, participants in World of Warcraft’s Rated PvP have received numerical Elo-based ratings based on their performance, but what that number means to a player is fairly opaque. Participants currently have to wait until the very end of a PvP season for us to review the full standings and assign titles like Gladiator or Rival based on their relative standing.
      In Battle for Azeroth, we want to increase clarity and offer a more structured progression that recognizes players’ accomplishments in real time as they climb through the ranks. As players reach the following rating thresholds, they will enter formal brackets:
      Combatant: 1400–1599 Challenger: 1600–1799 Rival: 1800–2099 Duelist: 2100–2399 Gladiator: 2400+ The specific rewards available in each of these brackets which will be clearly shown in the game’s interface so players can work their way toward earning the items they want most.
      Skill and Participation Rewards
      We’re focusing on two things as we delve into how players earn rewards for taking part in Rated PvP. One focus is refining and clarifying how we reward skill, and the other focus is providing clarity around how we reward participation at varying levels.
      PARTICIPATION MATTERS
      The feedback we heard around Legion’s PvP rewards pointed toward players’ desire for a more controllable and predictable gearing path. To that end, we’re bringing back Conquest points as a measure of Rated PvP activity; we’re also offering a specific piece of raid-quality gear each week, adding up to full sets of increasing quality over the course of a season. This will make it so players have better visibility into how much time and effort they’ll need to put into earning a specific item and will counterbalance the random nature of rewards elsewhere in the system.
      We’re also changing how players can earn Vicious mounts. In the current Legion system, you need to win 100 Rated 3v3 Arena or 40 Rated Battleground matches. In Battle for Azeroth, Rated play in any bracket—including 2v2! —will count toward earning these mounts. And in line with our philosophy around making cosmetic rewards account-wide, your PvP efforts account-wide will count toward earning these rewards for your collection.
      IN FOR THE SKILL
      With these updates, we want to make sure we’re providing PvP rewards that are commensurate with someone’s level of play. To this end, we’re adding an end-of-the week reward along the lines of the weekly Grand Challenger’s Bounty chests you can earn for doing Mythic Keystone dungeons. These weekly rewards can be collected from a chest in the Dueler’s Guild PvP hub in either Zuldazar (Horde) or Boralus (Alliance).
      If you’ve filled up your Conquest bar for the week, you’ll receive a reward in the chest of an appropriate item level. The item level of the reward will be based on the highest bracket in which you won at least one game last week. For example, if you played and won at Duelist in 3v3, expect to receive a reward with an appropriate item level for your ranking at the end of the week. However, if you were rated as a Duelist in 3v3, but only participated in 2v2, you wouldn’t receive a Duelist level item unless you had won a game in 3v3.
      WHO’S THE GREATEST?
      To help provide even more transparency, we’re adding regional tracking so that once you’ve reached Gladiator, you will be able to see where you rank in your region right within the interface. For those aiming to make your way to the very top of the rankings, you’ll be able to keep a close eye on just how far you have to go to get there, or even brag to your friends about just how far you’ve gone.
      END OF THE SEASON?
      We’re still in the process of working out the possible end-of-season rewards, but for now we can say we’ll be keeping the special seasonal Gladiator titles for the very top players at the end of each season. Those who get the Gladiator title will also need to win an additional number of games to earn the mount as their reward.
      We have more in store for PvP beyond Rated play, so be sure to check back here for more!
