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.

      The new PTR is here and we have some cosmetic improvements as well, with Death Knights, Blood and Night Elves getting some better glowing eyes! There will be even more eye-glow-related upgrades to come in future patches as well.
      Eye Glow (source)
      In the Visions of N’Zoth PTR, testers will soon see initial changes that we’re making to improve how brightly-glowing eyes look on many player-characters. In today’s build, this will be noticeable for Blood Elves, Night Elves, and all races of Death Knights.
      As we discussed at BlizzCon, we are bringing many new customization options to player-characters in Shadowlands, and this is an early step that we’re taking to lay groundwork for updating this particular look.
      We expect to update brightly-glowing eyes further in future builds of the Visions of N’Zoth PTR.
      Thank you for your testing and feedback!

      This week's 8.3 PTR build 32489 comes with a new item which lets you add sockets to your gear.
      While we don't know much about the item at this time, Gouged Eye of N'Zoth lets you add a socket to an item which currently does not have it.
      Check out our Patch 8.3 Hub for the latest Visions of N'Zoth news!

      Based on MrGM's BlizzCon interview, there's going to be a new Death Knight intro for Allied Races and the Pandaren in Patch 8.3. The previously encrypted sound files of Bolvar and Darion Mograine are now available.
      Allied Races and the Pandaren can create Death Knights in Patch 8.3. Blizzard has updated 8.3 PTR servers with a new build and the previously encrypted sound files are now available for preview:
      Bolvar Fordragon VO
      Darion Mograine VO
      We also datamined new Bolvar-themed swords a while back that will be rewarded to the new Death Knights starting in Patch 8.3.

      In Shadowlands, Death Knights will start at level 10 instead of level 55. Then, you will be able to talk to Chromie and pick any expansion you see fit for leveling up until level 50 before heading into the Shadowlands.

      Shadowlands is apparently super early in development and based on the discussions Preach had with the developers, he thinks the game will release in January 2021.
      Check out our BlizzCon 2019 Content Hub for the latest news!
      Highlights
      Although Preach thinks the game could be out in January 2021, this is likely false, because the pre-order states the game will release on or before December 2020. Gearing for the next expansion is not set in stone just yet, Blizzard's awaiting player feedback on the new 8.3 Corrupted Items System which is the new decision-maker of which direction they're going to go with in Shadowlands. Although it's too early to talk about Covenants, Ion confirmed there will be a BiS one. Tier Sets aren't coming back, because they think they can achieve Tier Bonuses with the new Covenant system which is better structured. If Covenants end up being unbalanced it will be difficult to swap between them. Shadowlands will be alt friendly allowing you to skip a lot of stuff from the beginning. It seems Battle for Azeroth's last tier will be year-long. We're still in for Patch 8.3 and 8.3.5.

      Ahn'kahet: The Old Kingdom Azjol-Nerub was an empire of great strength when the Lich King arrived in Northrend. Despite ferocious resistance, however, Scourge forces managed to overtake the subterranean kingdom and slaughter its inhabitants, the nerubians. Scarred by years of war and abandonment, this vast domain is now occupied on two fronts.
      In the Upper Kingdom, undead nerubians patrol the ruins of their homeland, guarding clutches of eggs that will one day bring forth a new generation of Scourge warriors. Meanwhile, in the depths of the Old Kingdom, Ahn'kahet, another enemy stirs: the faceless ones. Little is known of these horrifying creatures, but rumor has it that they answer to an evil power lurking beneath Northrend. Destroying the undead nerubians and their tainted eggs will deal a great blow to the Lich King, but eliminating the mysterious faceless ones is also crucial to reclaiming the fallen empire.
      Tips
      Elder Nadox summons adds that should be taken down quickly. Run away from Prince Taldaram's Flame Spheres. Kill Jedoga's Twilight Volunteers immediately. Mushrooms appear all around Amaintar. Get away from the poisonous mushrooms and don't kill them. Volazj seperates everyone. This is hardest on the healer, so prepare to pop your cooldowns to stay alive. Achievements and Reputation
      If you haven't earned these achievements already, completing this dungeon will award Ahn'kahet: The Old Kingdom and Heroic: Ahn'kahet: The Old Kingdom
      If you have a solid group you can also aim to earn the following achievements:
      Respect Your Elders Volazj's Quick Demise Volunteer Work Gundrak
      Upon departing Azeroth, the titans entrusted loyal protectors with safeguarding Ulduar, an enigmatic city nestled in the mountains of the Storm Peaks. Designated supreme among his brethren was the guardian known as Loken, but with the power of the titan complex in his hands, he turned to darkness and plunged the region into chaos.
      Even so, the greatest threat to the region is rumored to lie undisturbed within the capital of the ice trolls' empire, Gundrak. In the depths of the city, the most sacred shrines are said to be steeped in the mojo of slain gods. Surrounded by this dark energy, twisted Drakkari high prophets grow in power, infusing their followers with incredible strength. If left undisturbed, the trolls of Gundrak may soon unleash their burgeoning might, plunging the entire region into chaos.
      Tips
      Slad'ran summons snakes. Keep them off your healer. Stay out of the poison pools created by the Elemental form of Drakkari Colossus'. Move! Definitely talk to your group about the Less-rabi achievement well in advance of pulling Moorabi. Eck can spring toward anyone in your party. Tanks should prepare to regain aggro. Gal'darah can be a complicated fight. In one phase, you want to stand back, but on the other, you should be very close to him. Achievements and Reputation
      If you haven’t earned these achievements already, completing this dungeon will award Gundrak and Heroic: Gundrak. If you have a solid group, you can also aim to earn the following achievements:
      Less-rabi Share The Love Snakes. Why'd It Have To Be Snakes? What the Eck? Halls of Lightning
      Desperate to save their kingdom from collapse, the trolls of Zul'Drak have turned on their ancient gods. The wild deities are now considered a source of untapped power, their potent blood providing the means to repel the Lich King's minions, who have overtaken parts of the troll nation. Heroes have recently journeyed to the beleaguered region to strike at the savage Drakkari and their maddened prophets.
      The reasons for Loken's treachery and the fate of the other guardians remain a mystery, but there have been whispers of a great evil at work behind the fall of the titan city. For any heroes brave enough to seek out the truth, it lies within the corridors of the ancient compound. Thus far, however, few have braved the perils of Ulduar and returned to tell of their discoveries.
      Tips
      Watch Bjarngrim for a little while, and don't pull him while he's electrifying. Stay away from Vlkhan's minions when they freeze up. Ionar is all about electricity. He chases you with it. He makes you explode it. Spread out! Loken requires you to stay close together, even when it's time to run away. Achievements and Reputation
      If you haven’t earned these achievements already, completing this dungeon will award Halls of Lightning and Heroic: Halls of Lightning. If you have a solid group, you can also aim to earn the following achievements:
      Lightning Struck Shatter Resistant Timely Death  The Nexus
      In order to reestablish his dominance over magic, the blue Dragon Aspect, Malygos, has launched a ruthless campaign to sever the link between mortals and the arcane energies coursing through Azeroth. To this end, his blue dragonflight is redirecting the ley lines of the world to the Nexus, Malygos' towering lair.
      In response to the blue dragons' offensive, the Kirin Tor, the elite magi of Dalaran, have allied themselves with the red dragonflight, who are charged with the preservation of life. Their combined forces are subverting the blue Aspect's offensive, but time is running out. The only question that remains now is... can Malygos be stopped before his crusade reaches its cataclysmic finale?
      Tips
      Get out of Commander's whirlwind attack, or die. The Telestra fight is all about focusing fire. Communicate! Omorok's spikes are dangerous. Stepping away from them is paramount. Keristrasza will kill you if you don't keep moving. Jump for warmth. Achievements and Reputation
      If you haven’t earned these achievements already, completing this dungeon will award The Nexus and Heroic: The Nexus. If you have a solid group, you can also aim to earn the following achievements:
      Chaos Theory Intense Cold Split Personality Utgarde Pinnacle
      Utgarde Keep was long thought to be abandoned, a relic of a lost civilization among the central cliffs of the Howling Fjord. Yet in recent days something has roused the fortress' slumbering residents, the vrykul.
      Feared to be allied with the Scourge, the savage race now terrorizes nearby settlements. With ferocious proto-dragons at their command and unparalleled prowess in battle, the vrykul pose a direct threat to Horde and Alliance campaigns in Northrend. Perhaps the only way to break the will of Utgarde's denizens is to defeat their revered leaders - but any heroes who fail in this task will surely become trophies to line the ancient halls of the vrykul fortress.
      Tips
      During Svala's ritual sacrifice, you must focus fire on the Ritual Channelers. Spread out when fighting Gortok's Ravenous Furlbolg! Skadi sometimes drops Reins of the Blue Proto-Drake. Prepare all your offensive and defensive dispels for King Ymiron. Achievements and Reputation
      If you haven’t earned these achievements already, completing this dungeon will award Utgarde Pinnacle and Heroic: Utgarde Pinnacle. If you have a solid group, you can also aim to earn the following achievements:
      Hail To The King, Baby King's Bane Lodi Dodi We Loves the Skadi My Girl Loves to Skadi All the Time The Incredible Hulk Pit of Saron
      For many years, champions among the races of Azeroth have stood against the Lich King only to be slaughtered mercilessly and forced to serve in his army of undead horrors. In his ongoing struggle to stop the Lich King, Tirion Fordring of the Argent Crusade has joined forces with Darion Mograine of the Knights of the Ebon Blade in order to assault Icecrown Citadel with a unified army called the Ashen Verdict.
      Tips
      Stay out of Ick’s poison clouds to avoid damage. Run away from Poison Nova. Avoid Krick’s Explosive Barrage and any Exploding Orbs. Forgemaster Garfrost’s Frost Aura debuff stacks and deals regular damage to the entire party.  Stand behind the Saronite Boulder to remove the Frost Aura debuff. Avoid Rimefang’s ice breath and the resulting ice patches he creates.  Run away from Rimefang’s Hoarfrost to keep from being stunned. Achievements and Reputation
      If you haven’t earned these achievements already, completing this dungeon will award Pit of Saron and Heroic: Pit of Saron. If you have a solid group, you can also aim to earn the following achievements:
      Doesn't Go to Eleven Don't Look Up  Your character and items will be scaled down to a power level fitting for the challenge at hand, but bosses will yield loot appropriate for your natural level. Timewalking dungeons also have a chance to drop items that usually drop when you run them on Heroic, and you’ll earn reputation with a faction that is interested in the dungeon. For example, when you Timewalk through Utgarde Pinnacle, Skadi the Ruthless could drop the Blue Proto-Drake mount for you.
      Look for the following all week long:
      Chronicler Shoopa in Zuldazar and Chronicler Toopa in Boralus have a quest for you. You can also start the quest from within the Adventure Guide (Shift- “J”). Quest Requirement: Complete 5 Timewalking dungeons. Rewards: Artifact Power and one loot box containing a piece of gear from Normal difficulty The Eternal Palace. Every Week
      The Bonus Events system consists of a rotating schedule of different activities, currently scheduled to run each week beginning on Tuesdays. Each Bonus Event grants a passive bonus to a particular game activity and offers a once-per-event quest with a noteworthy reward for accomplishing a related goal. The in-game calendar can serve as your one-stop reference for the event schedule. The Adventure Guide also offers a direct link to active Bonus Events, allowing you to easily accept any associated quests.
