Titan Residuum in Mythic Season 2

Recommended Posts

Mythic Season 2 is scheduled for January 22 and Thaumaturge Vashreen will be selling ilvl 400 and 415 pieces of Azerite Armor for Titan Residuum that will be significantly more expensive than the current Season 1 gear, according to Game Director Ion Hazzikostas.

Ion today clarified on Twitter that hoarding Titan Residuum before Season 2 isn't really worth it, because instead of resetting the currency, they decided to significantly increase cost of the new Azerite Armor and Season 2 will reward proportionally more Titan Residuum.

For example, scrapping ilvl 415 Azerite Armor rewards 365 Titan Residuum on PTR.

Mythic Season 2 begins on January 22 when Battle of Dazar'alor becomes available. Blizzard is also increasing the difficulty and rewards from dungeons.

Because you know people who actually did the content and worked towards getting ready for season 2 are the literal devil right Ion?

I used to grind and expect to get something from it, but now I know that everyone will get the things I tore my *filtered* for easier and faster anyway.

they should get rid of Ion he's just cancer I swear.

You're an idiot.  What Ion is saying makes perfect sense.  Why would they let you just farm up tons of titan residium and instantly buy a 415 piece of gear when the raid drops.  That just is stupid game development if they did that.

Eeeeeexpected. Cant risk people getting stuff ealier and paying 13€ less

It wasn't meant for you to get 415 gear the second the raid dropped.  Are you dumb?

See, this is actually what I hate. People complain, very angrily, that "gearing is too easy. You get your gear so fast and then you're done and there's nothing to aim for!"

And then they come out like "hey, we're going to make it so people can't just, start the season with raid level gear, and chances are they need to earn their pieces" And people get angry... because they have to put effort into getting their gear and actually play the game? Like can people please make up their mind? Are we mad about being able to buy our gear with currency, or are we mad because they aren't allowing us to instantly buy our gear with currency?

Peopl are getting mad because all collected residium is getting "worthless". I really expected this will happen so i invested my residium to get a small upgrade. This is what everyone else should do. But yes, it feels like a kickass. For already geared people, all the effort is worth nothing. Do you understand now, why people getting upset? Well, i do...

I mean, you're right and I get why people are upset. But it's also kinda on me for thinking people would expect this. And really it should have been expected especially with charts showing how much things were and how much they broke down for

The way he worded it makes it seem like *filtered*. Ill have 900 residuum by the time new raid opens. that means ill only need 300 more to get a 415 piece (unless they changed numbers) so yeah if you've been saving it should be worth it. You wont be decked out in full 415s (but really who expected that) but instead of waiting 2 weeks to buy a 415 maybe youre waiting 1 week instead which imo is worth all the saving. This is all with the hopes that the numbers are the same as they were when we first saw them.

 

(Really? We filter stuff now?)

The thing is we totally expected this, and I didn't save, I just used it as it came if I needed to, but just because we expect this behaviour from Blizzard doesn't mean we approve of it or think its good design. Of course we shouldn't expect to get fully geared when the content comes out, but effort should be rewarded and currently it feels like very much "lol how about no." from Blizzard on that topic. Gear resets, titanforging, etc. None of it gives you a real sense of advancement, its just ticking a box and in a few months anyone can face roll to get the same thing, so why really bother?

The game has worked like this since gear catch-ups were introduced mid vanilla.

How World of Warcraft progression works:

1) You get ready for a (raid / dungeon / pvp) tier by having done previous tier raid / dungeon / pvp OR if you were not around, through quick gear catch-up mechanics ONCE THE NEW TIER arrives.

2) You use this gear to progress through the new content, while the previous content is now useless outside cosmetic value.

3) Repeat every ~6 months.

Kind of curious on how much more expensive the 400 and 415 pieces will be....Not because I immediately want to get those pieces right off the bat but to give me an idea on how much I will need to grind due to my lack of RNG.

Haven't really bought anything with my TR and just have been scrapping and saving since it was introduced.

They have been saying, for quite some time, that new pieces would be significantly more. This isn't new information. I would have never expected to be decked out in 415 when it drops. It boggles my mind that anyone else would have expected it. Some people will be a week or two away from being able to buy one piece, and that is way better than having to wait on RNGesus for all three. People have become complacent and expect everything to be handed to them these days. Can't wait for classic.

      The probably most famous piece of World of Warcraft media seems to be the most popular South Park episode as well, as a recent competition held by the show itself had "Make love, not Warcraft" end up at the very top!
      The Epic Episodes tournament saw 64 episodes go head-to-head in a big bracket, with fans voting over Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Youtube, with the grand finale coming down to Make love, not Warcraft and Scott Tenorman must die:

      And in the end, the iconic WoW-themed episode won the day!
      (In case the episode link above doesn't work, try this one, as it's definitely time to re-watch it!)
      The episode is truly special, both to South Park and Warcraft, where it brought in so many new players to the game, as you can see from the many comments in the reddit thread talking about this recent win:
      That episode was the reason I started playing WoW, bought a copy that week and have been playing off and on since. - barking_labrador
      ...
      Me too. This episode changed the trajectory of my life - beanmachine89
      ...
      When I don't play for a few months (once it was two years) this episode tends to trigger a desire to play for me. - Jamileem
      ...
      Same. Literally not a day after I went down to Wal-Mart with my mom to pick up a copy and some game time. - or10n_sharkfin
      ...
      Same and to this day hear “No No I don’t wanna start over in the graveyard” every time I die - BumblebeePleasant749 We've also recently seen some major references to the episode being added to Hearthstone's United in Stormwind expansion, as the Sword and boar(s) made an appearance! And the official WoW Twitter account also mentioned the win!
