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.

      The Alliance Castle Nathria Mythic Hall of Fame is finally full, but it appears that a Chinese boosting guild has filled it with many Cutting Edge runs discovered by players through Warcraft Logs.
      The Alliance has filled the Hall of Fame 29 days after the Horde, but according to reports, a Chinese guild named Q728 has sold more than 50 Hall of Fame / Cutting Edge pilots this tier. The alleged boosting occurs in each tier, but it is super obvious this time around.
      Reddit user Drathos1337 provided us with two interesting Warcraft Logs links. The first one links to their rosters and contains hundreds of characters with oddly similar performance on the final bosses after not performing that well on early ones, which hints at pilots. The second link contains their calendar, where you can view the individual runs.
      Many players are calling for a complete overhaul of the Hall of Fame system due to the boosts and Alliance taking a long time to fill it.

      We've seen plenty of WoW recreations in other games, from Minecraft, the Sims and so on, but this is a pretty new one as a part of Stormwind has been made in Tony Hawk's Pro Skater!
      While the details aren't exactly high, the architecture seems to be all there, but more importantly it looks to be a pretty solid skate park, with plenty of places to grind, wheelie and other skating terms I definitely know and didn't google like like ollie, boardslide and darkslide. The music isn't half bad either!
      This particular map is only available on the PS4, however, but it's still damn cool to just look at.

      It seems there's a much easier way to handle Devos, the final boss of the Spires of Ascension, as many players have been using this extremely powerful cheese/creative use of game mechanics/exploit to speed things up and make the encounter trivial.
      As spotted by the WoW Highlights Youtube channel, the method actually kind of breaks the boss, as Devos does none of her mechanics after the cheese, and it's pretty easy to pull off too. While this seems like an extremely obvious exploit, it's interesting to know that something very similar happened back in King's Rest, where you could do the same thing to Mchimba the Embalmer, the second boss, and Blizzard actually allowed that, even in the MDI, as Ellesmere points out and explains this new Spires method:

      You can see the results of the method here, as the boss just does nothing after the first spear throw interrupts her:

      And here are two more examples, where we can actually see the method being done directly (in the first two examples):
      This particular one seems like it will be getting fixed fast by Blizzard, however, as it is the final boss and the method basically removes the majority of the fight and makes it very trivial.

      Here we are in Nathria week 12 where there's still a lot of movement, with Retribution and Arcane jumping unexpectedly, heading into the upper reaches of the rankings. Frost has gone back down after its surge,sticking to the middle of the pack in the higher percentiles, as Balance, Affliction and Fire remain at their top 3 spots.

      95th percentile Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.

      Retribution Paladin by Urthearso

      And here's a look at Heroic this week as well, where things really don't change much week-to-week, but it's still a nice comparison to the higher performing Mythic players.

      It appears Sylvanas got ahold of the Helm of Domination replica in the mail before Illusion4021, who received the helm shattered...
      After damaged Charity Server Blades arrived to collectors last year, something similar seems to affect another collectible, namely, Helm of Domination, a special-event item available for almost $300. 
      Reddit user Illusion4021 today shared an image of the shattered helm they received in the mail on Reddit.

      Apparently, they talked to Customer Service, but they cannot send a replacement given how limited the supplies are, so the only option is to send it back and receive a refund or keep the broken helm.
      Card
      The shattered helm has quickly become a source of jokes because Sylvanas shattered it in the game before we enter the Shadowlands.

      Would you send the helm back or glue it back together?
