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.

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.

      Black Dragonscale Backpack is a cosmetic item sold by Wrathion in Patch 8.3. The cloak is actually a Wrathion-themed backpack that can be used for transmog.
      The backpack is very similar to the Vulpera Heritage Rucksack, used in the Vulpera Heritage Armor in Visions of N'Zoth.

      When you unlock Horrific Visions in the upcoming content update, you can talk to Wrathion who sells various items for Coalesced Visions and Corrupted Mementos including:
      Vessel of Horrific Visions for 10,000 Coalesced Visions; Gouged Eye of N'Zoth for 25,000 Corrupted Mementos; Black Dragonscale Backpack (new) for 40,000 Corrupted Mementos; Wicked Swarmer for 100,000 Corrupted Mementos. Related 8.3 Build 32805 News
      Veteran of the Fourth War Flavor Spell for 2nd Generation of Death Knights Vulpera Bag of Tricks Racial Mistweaver Monk Essence Changes Death Knight Eyes Update
    • By Stan
      Veteran of the Fourth War is a new spell intended for the second generation of Death Knights created in Patch 8.3. The flavor spell is in place to reflect the end of the Battle for Azeroth War Campaign in front of the Gates of Orgrimmar ([error]). It works exactly as Veteran of the Third War for existing Death Knights.
      Players who pre-ordered Shadowlands will be able to create Allied Race and Pandaren Death Knights in Visions of N'Zoth. There will be a new intro with Bolvar and Blizzard has updated their eye glow multiple times on 8.3 PTR to bring it more in line with the Lich King's eyes.

      Vulpera Bag of Tricks Racial Mistweaver Monk Essence Changes Death Knight Eyes Update
    • By Stan
      The Vulpera Bag of Tricks racial works just like Mole Machine, allowing your character to discover new harmful and helpful tricks in the open world. In this week's 8.3 PTR build, 3 new tricks have been added.
      When reaching into your Bag of Tricks, you can pick a helpful trick to heal your allies or a harmful one to deal damage to your enemies.

      New characters start with Healing Vial and Corrosive Vial. This week, Blizzard added Holy Relic, Flames of Fury, and Sinister Shadows on 8.3 PTR. We will be able to discover up to 13 tricks in the future according to WoWDB.
      Helpful Tricks
      Healing Vial - Heals a friend for [ Greater of {270% of Spell Power} or {270% of Attack Power * pctD * (1 + 0)} ] Nature. Share the wealth! Holy Relic (new)- Heals a friend for 28. Share the wealth! Harmful Tricks
      Corrosive Vial - Splash your enemy with corrosive fluid, dealing [ Greater of {180% of Spell Power} or {180% of Attack Power * pctD * (1 + 0)} ] Nature damage. A good reason not to drop your bag! Flames of Fury (new) - Blast your enemy with the FLAMES, dealing [ Greater of {180% of Spell Power} or {180% of Attack Power * pctD * (1 + 0)} ] Fire damage. Sinister Shadows (new) - Torment the enemy with sinister power, dealing [ Greater of {180% of Spell Power} or {180% of Attack Power * pctD * (1 + 0)} ] Shadow damage. Check out our Visions of N'Zoth hub to learn more about Patch 8.3.

      While Shadowlands is looking really good and most of the community seems really hyped for it, the intro cinematic was a bit more divisive. With Sylvanas trampling Bolvar with relative ease, a lot of players have been voicing their dissatisfaction over how the fight went, or at the very least at how it was presented, with the Banshee Queen seeming a tad overpowered. But in comes Kirill Stepanov with his re-imagining of how the fight went down, with Bolvar earning his title this time around:

      Now sure, technically Sylvanas could still get out of that particular situation, but even if she did and won in the end, we really got no feel for Bolvar's power (not to mention the army at his command), so a bit of a bigger struggle would have been nice and this piece really showcases that. As you'd imagine the image is very popular on the WoW reddit and it would be nice if Blizzard took note of the, ahem, one-note direction some of the story elements are going. Sure, they have to set up the Shadowlands expansion somehow and cinematics can't last 10+ minutes, but just making things happen because they need to for the plot to progress is really bottom-of-the-barrel storytelling and hopefully the next expansion will be above that.
      Here's the cinematic itself, to remind us of how it actually went:
      Also, let's take a look at a few other impressive art pieces from Kirill Stepanov:

      "Survivors"

      "Start of Battle for Azeroth"

      "The Lord of the Infinite"

      We have an upcoming fix for the new Spirit of Preservation essence on the 8.3 PTRand how it interacts with Mistweaver Monks' Vivify. Apparently the way it affects all healing from Vivify, both primary and other targets of the spell, has been changed to only affect the primary target, as was originally intended and as it works with other similar spells. The change will arrive in an upcoming PTR build.

      Mistweavers are also receiving additional changes with 8,3 which you can find in our coverage of all the class changes for the patch.
      Mistweaver (source)
      As a note for Mistweaver monks, a bug was recently fixed with regards to Spirit of Preservation ’s minor Essence effect and how it interacts with Vivify .
      Prior to this bug fix, both the increased healing amount and critical strike chance from the minor Essence applied to all healing effects of Vivify, not just the primary target healing. This wasn’t intended. The essence should only be affecting the primary Vivify target’s healing value and crit chance, similar to how it works with something like Flash Heal or Healing Surge . A future PTR build should have this bug fix in it.
