Heirlooms Scale to Level 120 in Patch 8.1.5

Recommended Posts

Another quality of life improvement is coming for alts, as heirlooms will scale to level 120 in Patch 8.1.5.

Players will be able to upgrade their heirlooms for leveling to scale up to level 120 in the upcoming content update.

Update #2: Blizzard reduced the gold cost of all Heirloom upgrade tokens in the latest 8.1.5 PTR Build 29281.

Update: Both items have been added to Heirloom Curators and the price is as follows:

Both items haven't been added to Heirloom Curators, so the pricing is yet to be determined. For illustration, items that upgrade your heirlooms to scale to 110 will cost you 7,500 Gold (Weathered Heirloom Scabbard Weathered Heirloom Scabbard) and 5,000 Gold respectively (Weathered Heirloom Armor Casing Weathered Heirloom Armor Casing).

at least 30k. Possibly 36k. can't remember exactly....and that might have been for 100, not 110.

Can you still use argent tournament daily currency to buy heirlooms?

Yes.  Still available from vendor at the tournament grounds.

ETA: At least the older ones she's always had are.  Not sure about new ones on PTR obv.

This is bearing in mind that 110-120 levelling isn't *that* intensive nor does it take all that long either. At most around two zones and a half worth of content, give or take, dungeon runs give a substantial chunk of xp too. Weigh the costs of getting the new heirloom cap against how quickly you want to level an alt, and if you can spare the Wakening Essence to get legendary items for them, it makes 100-115 go much more smoothly. 

I've still been running Legion missions as well for the reputation chest rewards, and until it was recently nerfed, the old Augmentation Runes which were something over 200g per stack at a vendor, so wakening might be an idea to fill that gap. 

Obviously the real game changer here is Warmode. With the 30% bonus the Alliance have, it's definitely something to consider and keep an eye on if Blizzard decides to change it or not.

Theoretically, but being hunted down by 120's all the time makes that 30 percent bonus less lucrative. Corpse runs between every quests aren't fun.

 

Btw heirloom upgrade tokens can be purchased for tw currency can't they?

Experiences may vary, I haven't been attacked once on my Horde alt when I've had WM on, and even if I had, there's plenty of alternative quests and enough traffic around the world to keep things from turning into a corpse run every other 20 minutes. Even the weekly to kill 25 players for a piece of armour and a ton of azerite doesn't count players below 120, so there's always a good chance that if you can run most max levels will normally cut their losses and move on rather quickly. 

Yeah TW badges can be used but the price will likely be in excess of 2000, which is a... lot of Timewalking, which I would advise against if you're a collector as WoD timewalking comes with 8.1.5 with new rewards.

I quit the game shortly before MoP came out and just returned in November. As someone who just hit BfA content a couple weeks ago, I'm sure they'll be useful to some but I can't see these being worth what they'll inevitably cost, imo.

I've gone from 110 to 114.5 in what feels like only a handful of actual play hours and I'm only halfway done with 1 zone. (Stormsong) I haven't done the first foothold quest and I've only done 2 missions on the table. I've done 2 dungeons in this timeframe. I was using the heirloom chest/shoulders until azerite pieces replaced them. Factoring in those (the exp bonuses still work past 110, no?), war mode, and rested EXP and whatever other modifiers are out there and leveling is cruising along almost too fast if you ask me.

I was following Icy's leveling guide in BFA which suggests you'll be 113 by the time you finish your first quest zone which is definitely not true at least from the Alliance standpoint. You get pretty awesome stuff from quests and if you run dungeons. I guess if you've got expendable dough or currency then by all means. Just one new newbie's opinion.

Don't you still need to finish the main quest lines in each zone to unlock dailies? Or is that just for the first toon?

You're thinking of Pathfinder.  You don't have to have that achieve for WQ, only friendly with the factions and all of the footholds up and running on the other continent.  I'm exalted with all but Tortollan and haven't finished two of the three main questlines but had WQ open the moment I ding'd 120.

On top of what Sholto said, it's ALSO only on one character that you need to hit the rep required and everything

What is changed is the exp per level required after the 8.1 hit, which could be why you didn't feel it to be a hassle like before.  At least they mentioned that for all levels below 111.

Though it does feel like it has been scaled down on what is required when leveling another toon to 120 now compared to back at BFA release.

And not sure about the exp bonus, previously the exp didn't go along with you if it were at capped to go to level 90 with you being 91, then it doesn't say that it turns the exp bonus off until it scales with your level once again after upgrading it. Me and my friend found out about it after I suddenly were 27% ahead on exp and we had same amount of gear on, but his legs weren't upgraded after 60 and we contacted a GM about the exp since we did some digging on forums about it. So I honestly wouldn't imagine they have fixed it since no talk about it, or at least obvious talk on it has been going on.

Anyone remember roughly how much it cost to upgrade all looms to 110? Wondering for the 120 upgrade so I know how much gold I'll need approximately.

Let's see about this, you need in total for a 'fully' geared out character with them all scaled to 110. Which makes a total of 1 helmet, 1 shoulders, 1 chest, 1 legs, 1 cloak, 1 neck, 2 rings and '2' trinkets. 1-2 weapon/shield combo.

Depending on class it would be cheaper to be using double weapons for price of one.

13700 alone for one weapon, one-handed or two-handed.

8000 for one piece of non-armor (counts off-hand and shields)

Rings are unique so that is 16000 for two, one from shipyard in Draenor and one from fishing tournament.

Neck, helmet, back, chest and legs are 40000.

Trinkets can be used twice so 8000 if you are cheap. With the new trinkets out that's another 8000 if you use them as well.

Bringing you to a total of 77700 gold for the least used full 'set'. Add 8000 if you are using an offhand or shield, 8000 more for an additional trinket.

      Blizzard added new Benthic tokens to the game in the latest Patch 8.2 build to make gearing up easier while in Nazjatar. This article goes through Benthic gear, item effects, and upgrading.
      Benthic Gear Tokens
      Benthic tokens are similar to Relinquished tokens in Legion and they're here to provide a gear catchup. The base item level is 385. All slots except for weapons, trinkets, and rings are available. Helm, Shoulders, and Chest pieces obviously provide Azerite gear. The intro quest to the Benthic system will provide you with one piece of ilvl 385 Benthic gear which you're going to upgrade to ilvl 400.
      Benthic Gear has predetermined stats and there's no RNG involved.
      The following tokens can be purchased from Artisan Itanu (Alliance) or Finder Palta (Horde) in Nazjatar for 5 Nazjatar Manapearls:
      Benthic Bracers Benthic Chestguard Benthic Cloak Benthic Gauntlets Benthic Girdle Benthic Helm Benthic Leggings Benthic Spaulders Benthic Treads Benthic Gear (ilvl 385) can also come from Nazjatar World Quests (Source).

      Finder Plata <Treasures of the Unshackled> vendor in Nazjatar. She sells gear tokens for Nazjatar Manapearls, a new currency rewarded from various activities in Nazjatar.
      Buffs
      Benthic Gear comes with interesting effects in various slots:
      Back
      Fishy Fiends - You have a chance to loot a random fish from creatures in Nazjatar and The Eternal Palace. Frost Resistance - Frost damage taken is reduced by 2% while in Nazjatar and the Eternal Palace. Resurrect Health - Increases health gained when resurrected by 30% while in Nazjatar and the Eternal Palace. Trader's Stock - You have access to the Murloc traders' special stocks. Feet
      Aberration Master - NYI - Gain 81 Mastery for 6 seconds after killing an Aberration in Nazjatar and the Eternal Palace. Sea Floor Acrobatics - Your falling damage is reduced in Nazjatar and The Eternal Palace. Hands
      Elemental Instincts - You are more likely to find strange resources related to Mardivas. Shadow Resistance - Shadow damage taken is reduced by 2% while in Nazjatar and The Eternal Palace. Legs
      Seabed Runner - Your Speed is increased by 95 while in Nazjatar and the Eternal Palace. Swimmer's Legs - You are 5% larger while in Nazjatar and The Eternal Palace. Waist
      Damage to Aberrations - You do increased damage to Aberrations in Nazjatar and the Eternal Palace. Wrists
      Exploding Pufferfish - NYI - Your spells and abilities have a chance to summon a pufferfish that explodes, dealing 0 damage to targets within 8 yards of you. Intra-Ocean Navigation - Your swim speed is increased in Nazjatar and The Eternal Palace by 5%. Upgrading Benthic Gear
      The base item level of Benthic items is 385, but you can upgrade them all the way up to item level 415 by talking to Voidbinder Zorian, who will:
      Empower a Benthic item from Nazjatar, making it Pearled aind increasing its item level to 400 for 20 Nazjatar Manapearl. Empower a Pearled item from Nazjatar, increasing its item level by 5 up to a maximum of 415 for 10 Nazjatar Manapearls per upgrade. Empower a Pearled Azerite item from Nazjatar, increasing its item level by 15, up to a maximum of 415 for 30 Nazjatar Manapearls.
      Upgrade tokens listed below have been removed from the Quartermaster. The upgrade process is now handled by a NPC.
      Azsharan Pearling Kit costs 20 Nazjatar Manapearls and the item is used to empower a Benthic item from Nazjatar, making it Pearled aind increasing its item level to 400. Azsharan Pearling Enhancement costs 10 Nazjatar Manapearls. The item's used to empower a Pearled item from Nazjatar, increasing its item level by 5 up to a maximum of 415. Azsharan Azerite Pearling Enhancement costs 30 Nazjatar Manapearls and the item is used to upgrade a Pearled Azerite item from Nazjatar, increasing its item level by 15, up to a maximum of 415. Benthic Gear is here to help you catch up on gear in Rise of Azshara.

      With the new patch coming tomorrow/Wednesday, it seems there's a round of Battle for Azeroth trials that include 3 days of free game time going around, but the gift is only hitting certain players. The gift is showing up in the Battle.net app, seemingly only for inactive accounts and possibly only those inactive since Legion as well. There also seems to be a way to trigger the gift if you haven't received it by going to the Battle.net site and clicking to set up a subscription (but not going through with it), which should trigger the gift if you're eligible for it.

      We don't know what the exact requirements are for it at the moment and it could be just random, but these are some of the facts gathered up over on the WoW reddit. I've tried this myself on an account that's been inactive since around the start of BfA, but did not receive the gift.


      As for the trial itself, other than the 3 days of free game time you can also play a trial character through as much of the Battle for Azeroth experience as you can manage, but you cannot play your own characters through it, as they'll still be stuck in Legion content and unable to progress beyond the Battle for Lordaeron event.
