(Updated) Legion Prestige Levels in BfA Reminder

Recommended Posts

jqhihdf.jpg

 

Update: It seems that it will be Honor that's added together from various characters, not the actual prestige levels from each of them. Check out the full tweet below.

With plenty of achievements, including artifact appearance ones, tied to PvP prestige levels, the WarcraftDevs twitter reminded us of how exactly the transition to BfA will work, with all your levels from alts on the same account merging and adding up, and that added level counting towards all achievements.

So, this is one of those things you might want to get done before Battle for Azeroth lands on August 14th, so get to it!

This is awesome. Only the RNG of this game is worse than endless farming of reputations and prestige. Mindless, skillless farming...

I don't get why you are complaining? There is absolutely 0 player power tied behind Prestige lvls, its entirely vanity. If you don't want the vanity, don't do it. There is no reason it should be just handed out though, especially considering how easy it is to get many, many characters up to prestige lvl 1.

I was about to farm Prestige for my Monk to get pvp skins for the weapons, but since i am no pvp player and twink much, i have several characters sitting on prestige 1. Does this mean i can wait now for this to go live, my prestige EP to get summed up, and get all pvp Skins for all artifact weapons, for all characters? Seems a bit to easy to be right :D considering i never seriously played rogue or mage and have absolutely no right to be gifted skins that show, that you know what you are doing with that class.

I think it will count amount of Honor earned on each character, not add Prestige levels with each other.

Mounts are a nice thing to collect, I really like it. In my opinion though, they should be a reward for things that are somehow hard to accomplish such as the Mage Tower. This way it is not handed out (which I would hate even more). I think reputation and/or low chance mounts are a lazy way to keep people playing. This is no content. I have nothing against achievments for reputation. If someone wants to do them, that's none of my bussiness. Just why the mounts ;c

According to the post at the top, they add together.

 

"In Battle for Azeroth, all of your Prestige levels are going to merge. So if you have three characters who reached Prestige 4 in Legion, your account will be set to Prestige 12 in Battle for Azeroth."

Correction to this tweet: the merge will be to Honor earned account-wide. So two characters at exactly Prestige 1 will not result in Prestige 2 after the merge, but you also don't have to finish a Prestige level for that Honor to count.

The mage tower for many classes is now completely trivial due to massive overgearing, especially on the DPS ones. You can completely skip mechanics because of the massive changes in DPS.

My Fire Mage can now, over the course of the first 60 seconds of Garothi, average around 3M DPS. On Goroth in ToS, it was almost half of that. I can almost burst Agatha down in one Time Warp use.

I don't think Mage Tower is a good example of things that require skill that should reward mounts. There is Mythic Argus, Mythic Gul'dan, Glory achievements and the like for that.

I don't find it perfect too. They should scale with ilvl or something. I don't know. I just think this form is fine even if it needs improvements and I agree Mythic bosses are another good gate for such things although Gul'dan is another bad example. We down him twice a week for mounts, even badly geared alts are fine for it. Still harder than mage tower but not perfect. Anyway I still think even mage tower nowadays is better than mindless farm. And you can always brag about completing it back in Nighthold since achievs show the date.

I"m not sure whether I'm more disappointed or confused. 

I'm guessing that an account's first level of prestige will still be the reduced amount, but I'm unclear as to whether all other prestige levels will required regular amount  of 44K honor.

The first tweet  about adding prestige levels honestly wouldn't be fair to players who ground a toon to level 25, but I feel a bit cheated when the game developers promise one thing and then take it back the next day. C'mon Blizz, throw us a bone and give us more than 280 characters of info.

Is it too much to expect rhino people next expansion?

From what I understand, it'll be like taking all your characters and adding their honor earned this expansion. Then you get all that as a "reward", meaning it will go through prestige levels exactly as if you had earnt it 300 Honor at a time,

      Lady Jaina Proudmoore was not dropping any Glacial Tidestorms on Mythic difficulty after they buffed the drop rate to two mounts per run. As a result, she has been reverted to only drop 1 mount until the underlying issue gets fixed.
      Blizzard is currently investigating a bug that affects Mythic Jaina in the Battle of Dazar'alor raid and she now only drops one Glacial Tidestorm until further notice.
      Customer Support won't be granting additional mounts while the drop rate is reverted, according to the official support page.

      We should have received two mounts after today's hotfix, however after we kill Jaina we receive no mount at all.
      We identified an issue were Lady Jaina Proudmoore was not dropping any Glacial Tidestorm mounts on Mythic difficulty. She has been reverted to now drop only 1 mount again while the underlying issue is investigated.

      Customer Support will not be granting additional mounts while the drop rate is reverted.
      In the latest round of hotfixes, Blizzard buffed the drop rate of Glacial Tidestorm and Ny'alotha Allseer to two per run, because it took up to 20 weeks for a full Mythic group to get the mounts for each member. You can find more details here.

      Redditor Arang_Choi is back with two more recreations of Warcraft lore icons in Minecraft, after his Lich King one we've already covered. We get to see how Illidan, Ragnaros and Deathwing were made in their truly massive scope (or megabuilds, as they're called), and they're really impressive.
      While I'd say Ragnaros came out the best of the three, Illidan is really great as well, even coming off a little Protoss/Zeratul-y with the low details in his face - or maybe he's just wearing a Defias mask:
      Ragnaros is his old fiery self, but it seems this version is post-Molten Core, as some raiders have taken Sulfuras from him and/or doused it in a whole lot of Eternal Quintessence!
      Deatwing is appropriately gigantic, and maybe we can get him and the Stormwind recreation together to re-enact the ending of the Cataclysm intro cutscene.

      Which one is your favorite?

      In the latest round of hotfixes, Blizzard increased the number of Mythic mounts that drop from BfA end bosses to two, meaning Jaina will drop two Glacial Tidestorms and N'Zoth two Ny'alotha Allseers, instead of just one. 
      It took a whole raid group up to 20 weeks to obtain Mythic mounts from BfA end bosses, so Blizzard decided to increase the number of mounts that drop on Mythic difficulty to two given that both mounts will have their drop chance reduced to 1% once Shadowlands goes live.
      Glacial Tidestorm drops from Lady Jaina Proudmoore on Mythic Difficulty in Battle of Dazar'alor.
      "Though she commands a variety of magical powers, Jaina has always been most proficient at summoning powerful elementals of water and ice."

      Ny'alotha Allseer drops from N'Zoth on Mythic difficulty in Ny'alotha the Waking City.
      "To find him, drown yourself in the Circle of Stars."

      You can find more about Visions of N'Zoth mounts here.

      We have a whole lot more Mythic mounts coming in as both Jaina and N'Zoth are dropping double the amount, more nerfs for healers in Horrific Visions (in groups of 2), as well as specific Stormwind vision nerfs, a brawl switch for PvP and more.

      For Classic we have a fix for a disconnect issue when queueing for a Battleground.
      February 14 (source)
      Dungeons and Raids
      Battle of Dazar’alor Lady Jaina Proudmoore now drops 2 Glacial Tidestorm mounts (was 1) when defeated on Mythic difficulty. Ny’alotha, the Waking City N’Zoth the Corruptor now drops 2 Ny'alotha Allseer mounts (was 1) when defeated on Mythic difficulty. With these mounts becoming quite rare once Shadowlands comes out, taking 20 weeks or more for a full Mythic raid group to get the mounts felt excessive. Horrific Visions
      Reduced the health of enemies for groups of 2 or more that include at least 1 healer. Developers’ note: We expected that groups with a healer would gain efficiency by taking more risks, but we've found that this gain is offset by healers shifting focus from damage to healing as group size increases, so we're adjusting creature health accordingly. Stormwind Alleria Windrunner Darkened Sky now drains 40 Sanity (was 60 Sanity). When the Trade District bonus objective is complete, Chains of Servitude is now cast once during the fight (was twice). Items and Rewards
      Corrupted Items Fixed an issue which prevented items from being forged with the +12 Corruption version of Ineffable Truth (Corruption Effect). Player versus Player
      The upcoming Teeming Islands Brawl has been replaced with Temple of Hotmogu. Temple of Hotmogu Brawl’s bonus movement speed and haste have been increased to 50%. WoW Classic
      Fixed an issue that could cause the player to disconnect from the game while waiting in a long queue for a Battleground.
