Heirloom Upgrade Token Prices Reduced in Patch 8.1.5

Recommended Posts

ENwTPvr.jpg

In this week's 8.1.5 PTR Build 29281, Blizzard reduced the price of all Heirlooms upgrade tokens.

New tokens can be purchased in Patch 8.1.5 that upgrade Heirlooms to scale to level 120. The introductory gold cost was 15,000 Gold for Battle-Hardened Heirloom Armor Casing Battle-Hardened Heirloom Armor Casing and 22,500 Gold for the weapon token (Battle-Hardened Heirloom Scabbard Battle-Hardened Heirloom Scabbard), but this week, the gold price of all upgrade tokens went down across the board.

Here's the new gold cost of Heirloom tokens in Patch 8.1.5:

In the most-recent new build on the PTR (that was deployed yesterday), the prices of the upgrade tokens were adjusted. They should now be:

Tier Armor Weapon
90 500 Gold 1,000 Gold 750 1,200 Gold
100 1,000 2,000 Gold 1,500 5,000 Gold
110 2,000 5,000 Gold 3,000 7,500 Gold
120 [New in 8.1.5] 5,000 Gold 7,500 Gold

Another quality-of-life improvement is coming to alt gearing in Patch 8.1.5, as new tokens will drop from Island Expeditions. Check out our Patch 8.1.5 hub for more details about the patch!

Hoh boy, this is a much needed change.

As mentioned on the token reveal for upgrading to 120 post. This one right here. I mentioned that the total cost would sit around the 77700 cost for a 'full set'

13700 alone for one weapon, one-handed or two-handed. --> Will be reduced to 12750

Neck, helmet, cloak, chest and legs are 40000 --> Will be 'reduced' to 42500(*)

Off-hands/shields/trinkets/rings, basically everything but weapon. Will also be from 8000 --> to now 8500 for a full upgrade from 60 to 120

A full efficient set of heirlooms for the leveling crazed alt-o-holic. Counting both rings, two unique trinkets and an off-hand/shield.

Will now range from previously 93700 gold 60-110, to now a whole new cost of  72250 for a 60-120 set

(*) Since previous upgraded to 110 and this will be 120 now.  Hence the reduction.

Honestly they need to introduce a 'max level' upgrade item, it can even be more expensive than the other, because holy hell is it tedious to upgrade a set that hasn't been upgraded for a while.

Wouldn't be a bad idea considering they are adding more allied races with heritage gear, and I would suspect they continue that trend on. Though I'd personally enjoy a full two races. One for each faction once again like the worgen and goblins.

Or at least that they skip a few steps. Perhaps a 60 to 90 and 90 to 120.

This is great news for folks like me who have only recently returned to the game, in that switching to a new main will not require nearly as much downtime to "catch up" the old fashioned way.

Is that tedium a 'necessary evil' to ensure that content leading up to the 'max ilevel' does not become obsolete as soon as someone has completed it?

Blizzard seems to want to provide a million different paths to the same endgame, but each path still has work required to walk it.

      Blizzard have posted the known issues list today and updated it just now with some mining issues, so let's take a look! 
      Known Issues (Source)
      Classes
      Demon Hunter
      Shattered Restoration does not increase the healing of Soul Fragments from Shattered Souls, and does not update the tooltip values of Shattered Souls. Infernal Armor thorns damage tooltip value does not update with second rank with talent point unallocated. Vengeance Fodder to the Flame Condemned Demon does not die with one Throw Glaive. Druid
      Feral Freedom of the Herd (PvP) tooltip mentions incorrect cooldown reduction. Evoker
      Casting an empower spell when the Thundering affix buffs are applied causes the cast bar to desync. Hunter
      Call of the Wild summoned pets temporarily prevent the use of Mend Pet. Serrated Shots does not increase damage from Hit the Mark. Animal Companion reduces the damage done by Call of the Wild. Wind Arrow is doubly affected by Mastery: Sniper Training. Sentinel Owl highlight will display as a loot beam animation if Outline Mode is disabled. Quick Shot will not proc if your weapon is transmogrified to a different weapon type. Paladin
      Protection Shining Light secondary proc does not appear on Personal Resource UI. Rogue
      Dungeon and Raid enemies are immune to Distract. Shaman
      Lightning, Earth, and Water Shields’ auras disappear upon entering an instance or logging out. Dragonriding
      Renewed Proto-Drake and Highland Drake UI will break when previewing other drakes with the Storm-Eater and Crimson Gladiator Skin on. Dungeons and Raids
      Ruby Life Pools Kyrakka has no aggro table until it has fully landed at 50% health. If Kyrakka is defeated before Erkhart, the Flaming Embers pools of area denial do not harm players. Scholomance Warriors’ Charge ability can cause a disconnect or death. Temple of the Jade Serpent Warriors’ Charge ability can cause a disconnect or death. Items
      Kharnalex, The First Light displays ‘Adventurer’ as an eligible class. Player Characters
      The Leather Renown transmog set is available to everyone. Pandaren may display pink, un-textured hair in the transmog window for backpacks. There are unobtainable appearances in two Dracthyr Battlegear transmog Sets, preventing completion of the sets. Player versus Player
      Players are unable to earn Vicious Saddles during Dragonflight Season 1. Enigma Crucible and Empyrean Domain are unavailable. Nokhudon Proving Grounds Ground-targeted abilities (such as Ring of Frost or Rain of Fire) that are cast on the ramps located in the arena can be difficult to see. Professions
      Crafting Orders that have expired or are canceled will display an ‘Order Complete!’ text at the top right of the window despite the order not being fulfilled. Mining The Titan-Touched sub-path for the Master of the Elements Specialization tree is incorrectly showing the description for the 40 point capper as the unlock point capper and vice versa. The intended effect is that unlocking Titan Touched provides a short term player buff when you mine the node, and the Titan-Touched 40 point capper unlocks the ability to return to portals created by Overloading Titan-Touched nodes. Quests
      On “The Other Side”, one character opening the vault does so for other characters. In the Darkshore Warfront, Maiev Shadowsong will reset after casting “Mass Vengeance”. In the Destruction Warlock Mage Tower, Jormog the Behemoth and its abilities are invisible, and Tugar Bloodtotem can appear to be a female human. Ohn’ahrahn Plains Initiate Zorig does not appear for turn in of “Desecrator Annihilator” or “Reagents of De-Necromancy”. On “Maruukai”, carts are sinking into ground on the uneven terrain. On “Proto Problems”, Hypoxicron is landing mid-air. Ronsak the Decimator does not create a bonus objective/quest. Scaleseeker Mezeri does not create a bonus quest. Eaglemaster Niraak does not create a bonus quest. Windseeker Avash does not create a bonus quest. “The Nokhud Offensive: Founders Keepers” is missing quest loot. Thaldraszus On “The Once and Future Team”, abandoning the Quest after defeating the Colossal Causality changes the number of the Timewalker Wardens that approach. On “Banquet Battle” interacting with tables causes unexpected camera behavior. Resetting the “Ancient Protector” Bonus Objective encounter will cause the Ancient Protector to be untargetable. The Forbidden Reach “Final Order” displays empty quest text at turn-in while in-progress. User Interface
      On the character select screen, characters cannot be moved via drag-and-drop. The UI can only display four rewards for Major Factions - Renown Rewards. Press-and-Hold can have a casting delay compared to repeatedly pressing the key. In Ohn’ahran Plains, area texts on the Map are in incorrect locations. Map and minimap icons may disappear while in Valdrakken. For those just returning or who otherwise need to be caught up we have guides for both new and returning players.
      As with any update, it is important to make sure that if you use addons that they have been updated.

      According to player reports, the Battle for Azeroth Pathfinder is still required to fly in Kul Tiras and Zandalar on live servers.
      Battle for Azeroth is two expansions old with the launch of Dragonflight and when Shadowlands was released, Blizzard made Warlords of Draenor flying available to everyone with the Pathfinder still rewarding the mount.
      However, now that Dragonflight is live, this does not seem to be the case.
      The achievement still requires BfA flyting and the  Wonderwing 2.0 mount.

      Blizzard has posted an update on the Dragonflight performance issues, clarifying that operations and server engineering teams have been working around the clock to fix them since the expansion launched.
      (Source)
      Since the launch of Dragon Isles content, our live operations and server engineering teams have been working non-stop to address several unexpected performance issues. Some of these were fixed with realm restarts that took place earlier today in all regions, and other performance issues are still being worked on.
      This is a top priority, and we expect to deploy additional fixes over the next day.
      Thank you for your patience.

      Players have spotted three familiar faces in Ohn'ahran Plains on live servers!
      While the three NPCs are named "Unknown", they look like Malfurion, Tyrande, and Ysera.

      During Dragonflight testing, we've datamined some interesting dialogue between all three. You can read it below. It contains spoilers.
      We currently do not know when the questline will be enabled on live servers, but it appears to be encrypted for now.

      It's been a while since the WoW community was this much in agreement over a new piece of content, but Dragonflight seems to have brought an instant classic to the quest archives, with one of the simplest ones ever.
      There are dozens and dozens of reddit and forum posts talking about how much this one quest affected them and how good it was - and all it is is a dragon with a dwarf visage talking! And it's got the perfect name too: Stay a While.
      This small quest where you don't fight, explore or collect is one of my favourite quests in all of WoW. Dragonflight so far feels super refreshing and grounded. I came here to fly dragons not cry ;-; [SPOILER] I love these types of side quests... Please keep it coming! /cry I just got some dust in my eyes... from you know... the dragonriding... "Stay a While" one of the best quests That lonely Dwarf... I was not prepared! The Vritistraz “Quest”. There are many more posts about it, mostly crying-related as well.
      Not since the Runas the Shamed questline has the community been this much in awe of the story side of WoW, and it's a beautiful thing to see, especially since it's such a powerful way to show how important the actual world is to Warcraft, as the view itself is half the quest.
      Here's the full quest if you want to check it out, but if you're playing Dragonflight, you should really wait and get there yourself to experience it properly.
