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.

Isn't that even duller than quests? And waaay longer time-wise?

@ 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.

      If you don't want to upgrade Mythic Dungeon Gear with Valor, you can spend it on crafting reagents in Patch 9.0.5.
      If you don't wish to upgrade your gear with Valor in Patch 9.0.5, you can exchange it for various rare crafting reagents near the Great Vault (Hall of Holding), by talking to Exchange Specialist Ko'tul.

      You can purchase the following items from the broker:

      We're back to Nathria after all the BlizzConline action, where we're taking another look at the DPS standings and we have one huge change, as Frost Mages have soared into the top, landing in 4th/5th place after being near the bottom of the pile last week! We'll also be taking a look at the rise of Frost and the stagnation of the already not so hot Havoc down at the lower end of things, as Dutchmagoz and Wordup talks about their situations.

      The Lost Codex interviewed Steve Danuser and Morgan Day, and we learned more about the option to transmog each shoulder separately.
      Morgan Day revealed that the feature is probably still on the table, but some shoulders were not designed to be used separately, and they want to avoid clipping, which is probably the reason why Blizzard scrapped the option for Shadowlands launch.
      (Source)
      Early in the Beta, we saw that there was potential for individual shoulder transmog pieces, which sparked a lot of interest in the community, but it never made it to live in 9.0. Is that still on the table? Can you comment on individual shoulder transmogging and if it's coming or not?
      Morgan Day: This is a great question. I will follow up on this one because I know it was something that we were aiming to get done for Shadowlands launch, but that one in particular we knew might have run into some technical issues.
      There's a lot of history to draw from without transmog sets, and there were some very asymmetrical shoulder pieces that were crafted with never thinking towards having them transmogged individually.
      I think it is a really cool feature that we know players are excited about, and I imagine we're still doing our best to make progress towards that.
      You can watch the whole interview below. The video starts playing at where they talk about transmogging each shoulder separately.

      This is one of those "obviously not what we hope it is, but maaaybe?" things as Henry Cavill, who was part of many discussions about who should play Arthas last year, just posted an interesting image to his Instagram, as spotted by Warchief_Hammerhands.
      This is 99.99% Witcher-related, and the caption is just a tease (whether it's actually aimed at the Arthas hype or not), but we have seen the actor actually talk about the role of the Lich King previously. In several Instagram replies to one of the many fan photoshops of himself as Arthas, Cavill did seem to show some solid interest in the role, and it all started with an emoji response to this post:
      And here's the complex response, with Blizzard getting tagged:

      He then engaged in some fan interaction, starting with a nod at the previous rumors of him being the next Bond:
           
      And great response to a fair warning related to Cavill's missing his Man of Steel casting call because he was playing WoW:
       
        

      Many have actually commented that Cavill might be a bit too old for Arthas at this point, but considering the events on 9.1 and where the story might be going, who's to say an older, post-Maw Arthas isn't in the cards? It seems like a perfect stunt commercial type thing to tease a potentially bigger project like a TV series or even movie. After all, Metzen himself approves of Cavill in the role!
      But, getting back down to earth, this seems much more Witcher-related, with Season 2 of the show  still being shot, as Covid slowed things down. The Instagram post is probably just a tease that they're still shooting the show (possibly the finale, as the script seems to be relevant) and we're just getting too excited. But why shouldn't we get excited? A Warcaft TV show is just too good of a fit, even an animated one, so any movement we can stir up there can only be positive!

      We're sure you're all Cavilled-out at this point, but there's another development in the fan/Chris Metzen/Christie Golden casting of Superman as Arthas, as the man (of steel) himself has replied to a recent photoshop of him as the Lich King over on Instagram. We start off with two cute/amazing fan interactions, as someone in the thread asked him what his WoW name was and the reply was pure gold:
           
      The second was a fair warning related to Cavill's missing his Man of Steel casting call because he was playing WoW:
        
      And finally there's the big one, even thought it's small, as Cavill tagged Blizzard with a thinking emoji:

      And while usually with social media posts like this you'd assume they were made by some PR intern or similar, considering Cavill's love of WoW and the specificity of some of the replies, we can be pretty sure he was the one responding. Here's the full Instagram post:
      And just in case you missed it the first time, here's that story of Cavill missing the call that he got the Superman part:
