Island Expeditions BoA Gear Tokens in Patch 8.1.5

Recommended Posts

41990-plundered-armor-tokens-coming-in-p

In Patch 8.1.5 Build 29220, we datamined Plundered BoA gear tokens from Island Expeditions, used at level 111 or higher to create a soulbound item appropriate for your loot specialization. The tokens can be purchased for 20 Seafarer's Dubloons each from Dubloon Traders, but they're not available for each slot, probably because said slots are occupied by heirlooms, which can be upgraded to scale to level 120 in Patch 8.1.5.

Captain Klarisa (Alliance) & Captain Zen'taga (Horde) now sell the following BoA gear tokens for 20 Seafarer's Dubloons:

We tried buying a BoA token from the vendor and ended up with a green ilvl 286 item at level 120. Keep in mind that this gear is intended for alts and players that level through Island Expeditions and the slots are supposed to work with heirlooms.

they are completly useless and far too expensive
the overall island currency situation is extremly dumb
theyd need to up the currency gain by something like x10 and even then those tokens would still be more or less useless

286 at max level ist pathetic. It would have been already useless to buy those at bfa launch for your alts. They should at least be 310 or 320 to even push the gs a little bit, when you reach max level and want to switch out your lowest gear pieces.

Either this increase i mentioned, or dont make them buyable, and make them drops, like in legion, you found those things from time to time, and stocked them up. And when an alt reached max level, it was like i had a ton of them in stock and could gear that alt instantly to a decent gearlevel to start worldquests with fine rewards. I would prefer that, tbh, and rather stick to dubloons to buy cosmetics 🙂

When they really implement like this, no one at all will bother buying them, or regret buying a few out of curiosity 😕

I have a feeling the ilvl and rarity are random. I'll try out buying more, maybe the items are capable of War/Titanforging at max level.

286 ilvl war/titanforged into......300 ILVL!
YAY!

But being serious - these things make zero sense since you can easily get better items in normal dungeons and world quests.
Unless you are a nutjob who collects every single piece of gear in the game for their t-mog collection.

Not a bad idea for people (like me) who have leveled their toon though the Island Expeditions -- people without any quest gear, in other words.

@ stevenson      no takes about 4 hours with islands to go from 110-120 and you will have @ 20  ranks in your neck when done. And why did people that collect all the mogs in game need to be called nut jobs? because we found something we enjoy doing with our time instead of complaining about anything out of the norm that is put  in game, or arguing over faction superiority or how activision is destroying blizzard? personally i think the people that waste their time doing the things ive mentioned are the nut jobs.

1) 4 hours of mindless grind to get to 120 completely naked? NO THANKS
2) Aaaand you went full agressive mode like if i specifically said that YOU'RE that nutjob and should be ashamed of yourself.
Dude there are chill pills on the shelf. Take one

You described all those people as nutjobs.

Its pretty simple logic to assume he (as in one of those people) assumed he was included in that lot.

If that's backward logic Id like to see forward logic in your pov.

That Satchel reward is random and has a chance to reward Dubloons from 2-18 along with the random chance of quest item, xmog item, pet, or elusive mount from the loot tables.  Grinding an alt from 110 to 120 you may have any where between 60-80+ Dubloons (if you are lucky).  The current rewards from the vendor are steep for most of the pets and even for for the Albatross mount.

I don't think I will rely on this new 'incentive' too heavily when Normal/Heroic Dungeons and along with World Quests/Emissary rewards may progress gear faster than spending on tokens.  It's a nice gesture but the majority of alts I do have are already 120 w/ an ilvl 355-370+

But for those that are just now playing for the xpac or returning on a long hiatus it may be considered as a small stepping stone for their character.

I think these aren't intended to be used at 120, more like 111, 112, etc - use them as soon as you have 20 dubloons, as you level - meaning you'd actually be getting new gear at approximately the same rate as if you quested or ran dungeons.  It's a little better, since you can choose to fill a particularly weak slot or something, but basically as soon as you hit 120, you go do the regular gear grind.  

Expeditions are still a little worse since you don't get rep, so you still have to quest to do the war campaign and unlock your missions/ship upgrades/etc, but at least you don't hit 120 in argus gear.

They aren't a gear catch up mechanic like the old Broken Shore tokens.

What is this fabled satchel you speak of? I myself have only procured a measly pouch every run with a single, or with luck maybe two doubloons. 

Does such a thing as 2-18 exist?

 

But in all honesty, pouches suck massive chode.  Didn't know satchels was there, unless its in PBE and not out yet.

They should increase the ilvl to at least give something for alts to start off on heroics or something along those lines.

I've gotten 12-16 Dubloons before on some runs that were either Heroic or Mythic grade Isle Expeditions on my DH.  But the Satchels for those are hard to come by and I usually will get 2-4 Dubloons or a crappy xmog green that gets vendor quickly.

And I've had a Guild mate that opened one Satchel and received 18 before.

see there you go calling people names again. you dont want to be called names evidently neither does anyone else and at no time did i ever say you were one of the people i reffered to . i just said i think they are the nut jobs  not the mog collectors if your past posting and actions in forums makes you feel like  i was reffering to you thats your problem not mine

I'm dumbfounded that I have never received one even though I got the upgrade, I thought it was the small pouches that came along with a random quest for Azerite delivery thing or an xmog that came from that tech upgrade. That's so *filtered* dumb.  I run them a lot to get azerite easily and they are somewhat fun for me as a change of pace from boring WQ.

I've never seen one drop for me.

      The very first day of the Mythic Eternal Palace progress race was an interesting one, as it stood in stark contrast to the last big raid we had, with only three bosses down! The last larger raid, Battle of Dazar'alor, had 9 bosses, but 8 of them were cleared on the very first day, and while Crucible of Storms was much better in that regard, with only two bosses it was hard to judge what it meant for future pre-endboss difficulty. Today we've seen some serious opposition in the form of Lady Ashvane, the Eternal Palace's fourth boss, who has definitely proven her worth to Queen Azshara and then some, as she's defended the Palace very well and left the bosses dead count on 3 for day 1.

      The US part of the race started on time and we had Limit and Big Dumb Guild go for it from the very beginning, with Limit taking the first and second kills of the raid - downing Abyssal Commander Sivara and Radiance of Azshara first. But it was actually BDG that got to that 3/8 first, as they used a different route and went from Sivara to Blackwater Behemoth, whom they killed World First, and then cleared Radiance of Azshara some 10 minutes before Limit downed Behemoth.

      It seems 10 minutes was the standard gap between kills, as both guilds were only alone on 3/8 for  another 10 when Midwinter joined them, with Vision and Blood Legion arriving at the same place 10 minutes after that. Intern Made This Boss and Nerd Crew were the next two to join the top group, but the 3/8 cluster stopped growing for a couple of hours after that.

      Lady Ashvane proved to be quite the wall as the top guilds eventually went for Heroic splits for more gear, but still failed to down her before they finished up for the day, making her join the Restless Cabal as the hardest non endboss encounter in BfA so far. She still hasn't died so it seems likely she'll take that throne away from Cabal soon, but we've yet to see what the EU guilds throw at her. We know Limit got Ashvane to 27% with a 20% shield as well.
      Interestingly, at the end of the day we had the most guilds with three bosses down at 46, with 24 on two and 34 ith one. It's now time for the EU servers to come up and for Pieces and Method to have their clash, with the possibility of some new EU contender jumping to the top instead.
      You can follow the Eternal Palace race in many places this time around, from Method's site progress coverage, to the two live stream events hosted by Red Bull and Method as well.

      There was a bug with the Conflict and Strife Essence earlier today. 1,000 PvP rating is needed to unlock Rank 2, but players who opened their PvP Chest and met the requirements didn't receive anything after maintenance. A hotfix went out to fix the issue and all you need to do is log out and log back into the game to trigger the fix.
      Conflict and Strife is a PvP Essence gated behind Season 3 in Rise of Azshara. It allows you to use a predetermined Honor Talent in PvE. You can find out more about Essences in our Heart of Azeroth Essence guide.
      Blizzard (Source)
      The tool tip for Conflict and Strife says that you need to get Conquest cap to get rank one and for rank two you need 1k rating. I hit 1k rating before getting conquest cap so shouldn’t that allow me to skip straight to rank two? I pose this question because I only got rank one in my pvp chest and from my perspective it’s an error.
      About five minutes ago, we deployed a fix for the reward side of this. Players who opened their PvP cache earlier should log out and then log back into WoW to trigger the fix.
      Thank you!
