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.

      Covenant Callings will reward Valor starting tomorrow, so make sure to save them until Patch 9.0.5 goes live in your region!

      Rare Covenant Callings in Patch 9.0.5 award 35 Valor. Epic Covenant Callings grant you 50 Valor.

      One character can hold up to 3 Covenant Callings at a time, which means you should wait until Tuesday (US) or Wednesday (EU) before you complete / turn in any Covenant Callings for extra Valor.

      Blizzard is bringing back Valor in Patch 9.0.5, and the currency is used to upgrade Mythic Dungeon Gear, but what are the upgrade costs?
      The Red Rogue discovered the exact upgrade costs of gear with Valor in Patch 9.0.5 with a few missing slots, but before we go through them, let's talk about how the whole system works.
      Item Ranks and Upgrades
      Every item from dungeons in Patch 9.0.5 is given a rank based on their Item Level, as you can see on the tooltip.

      The items go from Rank 1 (Item Level 184) to Rank 12 (Item Level 220).
      This also applies to Great Vault loot. For example, if you receive Item Level 200 from the weekly chest, it will be of Rank 6/12.

      Base Mythic Gear (Item Level 184) can be upgraded to Item Level 200 without any requirements. All the higher rank upgrades are gated behind various achievements that require you to complete all Shadowlands Season 1 dungeons at Mythic Level 5, 10, and 15 within the time limit.
      In other words, if you want to upgrade Dungeon Gear to Item Level 220, you must complete all 8 Shadowlands Season 1 dungeons at Mythic 15 or above, within the time limit.
      We summarized everything explained above in the following table:
      Item Rank Item Level Requirements 1 184 No Requirements 2 187 No Requirements 3 190 No Requirements 4 194 No Requirements 5 197 No Requirements 6 200 No Requirements 7 203 Shadowlands Keystone Explorer: Season One 8 207 Shadowlands Keystone Explorer: Season One 9 210 Shadowlands Keystone Conqueror: Season One 10 213 Shadowlands Keystone Conqueror: Season One 11 216 Shadowlands Keystone Master: Season One 12 220 Shadowlands Keystone Master: Season One It's important to note that you can't upgrade gear obtained before Patch 9.0.5, which means you must re-farm everything when the patch goes live.
      Valor Caps
      You can have a maximum of 8,750 Valor, but the cap starts at 5,000 and increases by 750 each week. Blizzard also said one character could only hold 1,500 Valor at a time, but that may have been scrapped in the end.
      9.0.5 Week 1 Maximum Cap: 5,000 9.0.5 Week 2 Maximum Cap: 5,750 9.0.5 Week 3 Maximum Cap: 6,500 9.0.5 Week 4 Maximum Cap: 7,250 9.0.5 Week 5 Maximum Cap: 8,750 Weekly Cap: N/A Upgrade Costs
      Now that we know more about item ranks and caps, we are looking at how much Valor you will need for upgrades.
      All the data is provided by The Red Rogue, who also uploaded a handy video about the whole system. You can follow him on YouTube.
      You can upgrade gear by bringing it to Aggressor Zo'dash <Facilitator of Conflict> in Oribos, located in the Enclave of Oribos.
      The upgrade process is straightforward and works just like upgrading PvP or Covenant gear.
      The upgrade costs are different for each slot.
      Off-Hands, Rings, Cloaks, Bracers, Necks cost 250 Valor per upgrade. Shoulders, Gloves, Trinkets, Boots, Belts cost 400 Valor per upgrade. Helms, Chests, Legs cost 475 Valor per upgrade. 1-Handed Agility Weapon costs 500 Valor per upgrade 1-Handed Intellect Weapon costs 750 Valor per upgrade. 2-Handed Weapons cost 1,000 Valor per upgrade. The costs of 1-Handed Strength Weapons and Shields remain unknown for now, but based on PvP Upgrade costs, a 1H Weapon + Shield upgrades together should cost the same amount of Valor per upgrade just like a 2H weapon, so 500 Valor per item per upgrade (needs confirmation).

      It appears that the Weekly Maximum Valor cap has been removed on the 9.0.5 PTR. The patch releases this week on March 9.
      Previously, players could only earn 750 Valor each week, as shown in the screenshot below.

      On Thursday, Blizzard announced in a blue post that they were increasing Valor caps on the 9.0.5 PTR. Most importantly, they also added that there would be a cap of 1,500 on how much Valor a character can hold at a time, which seems to have been scrapped in the end.
      Currently, on the PTR, it looks like Blizzard has entirely removed the Weekly Valor cap in a hotfix (see missing tooltip). The Total Maximum cap has been increased to 8,750 Valor.

      We're still waiting for Blizzard to confirm if the Weekly Cap has been indeed scrapped or if it's just a bug.

      ChromedDragon created a map of Draenor before Garrosh showed up. Check it out!
      On the map, we see how the individual Orc clans completely surrounded the Draenei from almost all directions.

      Tanks are getting a lot of focus in Shadowlands with the increased Mythic+ focus, and it's only going to get more intense with the next pach, so we rounded up some funny stories, depressing interactions, memes and similar. Here's a grab-bag of tanking experiences from many players.
      While all tanks are always needed, things change around the +15 mark, as it's not just DPS that have this particular experience, and if you're one of the least popular/worst specs...
      Then there's this type of terrible, which hasn't really changed that much since, well, forever, as there will always be assholes out there, but there really do seem to be more and more of them these days, especially in Mythic+...

      Source: ChoGallMeta.
      And even if you do well, it's never enough for some people:
      But, sometimes it's quite a different feeling, as however terrible players might be to you, you're still a tank damn it!
      And there are some perfect moments that can only come from tanking, including this one titled "My greatest M+ tanking Achievement...":

      If the group gets really annoying, you can always have the last word too:

      Source: Boars89.
      And finally, if you get REALLY tired of all the DPS not interrupting, the healer selfishly trying to keep those idiots that stand in every mechanic under the sun alive instead of keeping you above 80%, or people dare to question your route, you can always just go with your own kind!
