Upcoming Item Level Increase for World Quest Rewards

Recommended Posts

38558-war-of-thorns-chapter-1-is-now-liv

The maximum item level of world quest and emissary rewards is going up next week with opening of Mythic Crucible on April 23.

World quests will now reward gear up to item level 370, emissaries up to item level 395, and Azerite Armor from emissaries will be increased to item level 400. Rewards from the "Against Overwhelming Odds" (PvP world quest) will be up to item level 395. The change should be live after the weekly scheduled maintenance in your region.

Raid Finder (and Mythic) difficulty for Crucible of Storms will open next week, April 23. Similar to Battle of Dazar’alor, you will need an average item level of 350 to queue for it. To help ensure players get raid ready, we are increasing the maximum item level for certain World Quests rewards. This will include the following:

  • World Quest rewards will go up to ilvl 370 (from 360)
  • Emissary equipment will go up to ilvl 395 (from 385)
  • Emissary Azerite Armor will go up to ilvl 400 (from 385)
  • Against Overwhelming Odds (when available) will go up to ilvl 395 (from 385)

Once the update is live it will affect active rewards like the Emissaries, so you may want to plan for when you will turn those in.

To ensure players dont have to play as much and get straight into that sweet sweet lfr, we're giving out higher free loot. You will never have to see a normal or heroic dungeon again!

Ugg... Why even bother doing heroics or M10s, you can get equal gear from doing four brainless quests... Pathetic.

I think you guys are missing the fact that you dont immidiately get those rewards from WQ once hitting 120. You currently need an ilvl of like 375 to get the 385 cache. So some work still has to be put in. 

I still agree though this is stupid.

Its to keep the WQ relevant and at least seem worth doing (for random TF, I suppose, and Alts).

Again - i think you are all missing the point. Patch 8.1 has been out for literally months. Most of the people who are impacted by this are people gearing up alts or a different spec or took a break from the game and are coming back. Everyone else should already be ilvl 400 and above, and if they arent they can catch up pretty easily and get ready for 8.2.

Also, as someone said earlier - you have to have a similiar ilvl to what you are already getting.

These catchup mechanics are great for the game and for players by effectively turning the game into seasons - keeps the game fresh and lets people come back after a break without needing to do an insane amount of grinding. Back in earlier expansions they didnt have these mechanics and players couldnt experience any of the new content if they hadnt cleared the old raids.

This is honestly a good thing because it will a) let you gear up alts or other specs faster and b) give you a bigger population of geared players to group up with. If you dont like this mechanic being introduced a couple weeks before 8.2 drops, then you upset that people will be able to get a 400 ilvl with less time invested a couple of weeks before 8.2 drops than you put in 2 months ago when the patch was still fresh. And that makes you a dbag.

Also - if you think clearing normal/heroic BfDA or completing mythic 10s to get ilvl 400 gear is an accomplishment at this stage in the patch cycle, then you are delusional and probably kind of suck. 

Stop complaining about every little change and get pumped for 8.2 you turds.

This is actually one of the reasons why we urge our new Guildies to do once they hit 120; specially if they are wanting to do Heroic Raid Progression and or Higher Keystone runs of 10+.  We help supply them with crafted 310-340 pieces (if they ask), encourage them to do the WQ that offer trinkets, armor, weapons, and rings, armor stack and carry through a few Heroic Dungeons and run through a few Mythic 0's.  And besides this gear is only temporary.  The Azerite Traits from the WQ Gear are horrid but suffice till something better is obtained later on down the road.  

Blizzard will probably not upgrade rewards from the Warfronts and I don't see them upgrading the gear from the Arathi or Darkshore Rare spawns along with the Kul Tiras/Zandalar World Bosses.

These catchups are nice when you're casual and don't put in a ton of hours, but still like to see the different content in the game because what's the point of playing otherwise? But the target audience of this site are living in a different ecosystem and no one they know will need the catchup.

      DesMephisto is back (or, more accurately, he never left, as he constantly strives to improve his leveling speeds), and he's gotten his speed record for 10-50 Shadowlands leveling significantly down from his last attempt! 3 hours and 56 minutes (or 3 h 37 min, if you remove the "screwing around" parts) is all it took to get to the equivalent of today's level 120, using Chromie time in Warlords of Draenor, beating the previous best we reported by over an hour and a half.

      Now, it's important to mention that Blizzard have stated in interviews that the current XP rates and leveling speeds on Alpha aren't final and are very rough at the moment, but it's till great to see players going for these speed records nonetheless.
      And here's the last minute or so of the leveling process, and you can check out the whole thing below as well:


      You can also check out our recent interview with the man himself, where he goes into all the many recent achievements he's had, from the 46 max level warriors, to the speed leveling, Autism charity, Guinness World Record and more.

      Method ran Ny'alotha on Heroic difficulty with a raid comprised of 29 Mages and one Demon Hunter, and while they downed all the bosses including N'Zoth, the clear highlight is Dresta'gath that has been defeated in just 22 seconds.
      You can watch the Pyroblast shower and Dresta'gath's decreasing health bar in the following video:

      3D Artist Dronmo has created a jungle in Unreal Engine 4 inspired by Stranglethorn Vale.
      Here's a comparison of the Stranglethorn Vale in World of Warcraft and the recreated version of the zone in Unreal Engine 4 taken from ArtStation.

      Here's another comparison of the zone.

      The artist teamed up with his friend, a guitar virtuoso, who produced ambient relaxing music for the video.
