Artifact Power and Artifact Knowledge in Patch 8.2

Recommended Posts

41355-artifact-power-catchup-disabled-un

The amount of Artifact Power needed to level up your Heart of Azeroth is increasing in Patch 8.2, but Artifact Knowledge will be more powerful.

Heart of Azeroth progression is shifting to a different system similar to Legion Artifacts and you will be collecting Artifact Power to level it up in Rise of Azshara. Blizzard increased the amount of Artifact Power needed to level up your Heart of Azeroth, but increased Artifact Power catchup to offset the change in Patch 8.2.

The biggest spike is going to occur in the ~50-60 HoA level range.

Artifact Knowledge

The amount of Artifact Power needed to level up the Heart of Azeroth decreases each week thanks to Artifact Knowledge. We currently don't know when they're going to activate Artifact Knowledge in Patch 8.2, but it's going to be more powerful than in the previous patch, based on the 8.2 multiplier.

Instead of stopping at 65 I see we are going to Lv.70 

I've only seen 70 mentioned anywhere in the PTR too, what made you think 65?

 

From week 11, it'll look like the below at best guess. Which isn't bad with the increase to AP gain

From vids and slight mentions of the HoA going to 65 on Icyveins and on Youtube also along the lines of something similar to Concordance like in Legion.  But it was still unknown and the subject was only touched slightly from Blizzard directly during the first several months after the release of BFA.  Instead of just another 15 levels to grind for AP I now know I will be working more on 20 on the Main.  My alts I could care less.

      Here come two more weeks of Mythic+ logs, with the class tuning changes having settled in. This week saw a +26 get taken down and not that many changes in the rankings since last time, as the meta seems to have very much settled in, so we'll be looking at the DPS, tanks and healers in all keys and some higher ones, as usual.
      Note: The logs are based on POINTS (as noted in each image), and not actual damage or healing, meaning they log the timed completion for the specs, with higher keys getting more points, obviously. The time in which the dungeon is completed is also a factor, but a much, much smaller one, as it grants very few points if you do it significantly faster than just any in-time completion. We'll also be switching back to the Normalized Aggregate Scores numbers, for clarity.
      In the 95th percentile we see some movement: unlike in raids, Mythic+ players haven't utilized the new Frost Mage buffs as much and even though the spec has jumped up a little, it's nowhere near the huge spike we've seen in Nathria. As for the all percentiles chart, we do have a new No.1, as Outlaw has taken Fire down a notch.

      Mythic+ All Keys 95th Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.

      Mythic+ All Keys All Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.

      Healer Specs
      Not many changes to healers, as the rankings are pretty much the same as a couple weeks ago:

      Mythic+ All Keys All Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
      Tank Specs
      The tank meta seems very much set, as there haven't been any changes to the rankings for a long time now, as Vengeance dominates all:

      Mythic+ All Keys All Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
      High Keys
      And now it's on to the high-end, as we take a look at the +15 and +20 all percentile data for DPS roles, where things look a lot different week-to-week every time, as there's much less data to work with. Of note this time around is the disappearance of Assassination from +20ies, as they were on top for quite a while and are now at the very bottom. The +15s are much more stable due to many more runs, and the big change since a few weeks ago is that Fury dropped down a little, as the hype over the buffs seems to have died down a little and Fire/Windwalker returned to their 2nd and 3rd places.

      The maker of the awesome Castle Pineapplia is back with a new browser game, but this one focuses on your dodging specific abilities!
      The Pineapple Training Grounds lets you choose between Sire Denathrius' Massacre, Shriekwing's Echoing Screech and one Mythic+ mechanic, Dark Bolt from the Ventunax encounter in Spires of Ascension. You'll obviously be controlling the pineapple again and dodging the mechanics to get you ready for when you run into them in actual WoW:


      That is one dead pineapple.
      Here are some comments from the creator:
      It's definitely worth a try, especially on Insane difficulty, so check it out here.

      If you have a ton of alts you want to try out and don't feel like putting in too much effort, here's a not too slow and very easy way to get from 50 to 60!
      MoffiSlayer found a spot in Ardenweald where you can easily 3-button chill farm player XP via a pet battle, but you might need the Iron Starlette and some pet bandages. It's probably doable with  other pets as well, but this one gets the job done in 2 rounds, so it's the optimal choice. It's a pretty good option if you have something else to do/watch a show or movie, or even at work as some players noted (via remote desktop tools and similar), as it's a very brainless side-activity.   This will earn you about 195K XP per hour, so you'll need about 14-15 hours to get from 50 to 60, which actually isn't that bad at all considering the regular way will probably take about 10 for a relatively chill playthrough, except that requires actual focus.  The pet battle is located in Ardenweald at 40, 64.4.

      The Valor system received a lot of updates in Build 37705. Mainly, we learned that Mythic +0 gear is upgradable. We also previewed Valor sources and caps and the crafting reagents available to those that don't wish to upgrade their Mythic Dungeon Gear.

      The eleventh week of Shadowlands Season 1 has ended, and after 2 weeks, we looked at the most popular tanks and healers for Mythic+.
      Earlier in the week, we also looked at the most popular DPS specializations for Mythic+.
      This Week's Affixes
      Tyrannical Raging Quaking Prideful Data Reliability
      The data used in this article comes from benched.me and is updated every hour. Reddit user OtherwiseUniversity7, the site's author, plotted all keys available from the Blizzard API (excluding the CN region) on a single ridge plot to gather all the information.
      Total Runs Recorded
      Here we have the total runs recorded for each tank and healer specialization after 12 weeks of Mythic Season 1. Based on the data, we filter out the most popular tanks and healers in Mythic+.

      Most Popular Tanks for Mythic+
      Vengeance Demon Hunter remains the most popular tank for Mythic+ multiple weeks in a row with more than 3.7 million runs. Protection Paladin is second with 2.8 million runs. Brewmaster Monk is third with 1.38 million runs. The least popular tank spec is Protection Warrior.
      1st: Vengeance Demon Hunter - 3,720,085 runs 2nd: Protection Paladin - 2,862,188 runs 3rd: Brewmaster Monk - 1,381,771 runs 4th: Guardian Druid - 1,355,591 runs 5th: Blood Death Knight - 1,253,296 runs 6th: Protection Warrior - 756,268 runs Detailed Look at Spec Performance
      Here is a visual representation of the share of tanking specializations at each keystone level. The meta starts kicking in at Mythic+16, where most specializations begin losing their share of representation to the meta-classes.

      Share of Tank Specializations in Weekly Top 500 Runs
      To observe meta shifts throughout the season, we sample the top 500 runs for each dungeon (a total of 6K keys) for each week. We then count the number of times each specialization appears in the weekly top 500 sample.

      Most Popular Healers for Mythic+
      Restoration Druid is no longer the most popular healer for Mythic+. They got overrun by Restoration Shaman with 3.174 million runs, and albeit the difference between 1st and 2nd place is just a measly 70K runs, it's nice to see a class other than Druid first. Holy Paladin remains third, and the rest is pretty much unchanged, with Mistweaver Monk as the least popular healer.
      1st: Restoration Shaman - 3,174,079 runs 2nd: Restoration Druid - 3,105,489 runs 3rd: Holy Paladin - 1,873,967 runs 4th: Discipline Priest - 1,351,766 runs 5th: Holy Priest - 1,086,248 runs 6th: Mistweaver Monk - 730,933 runs Detailed Look at Spec Performance
      Here's a visual representation of the share of healer specializations at each keystone level.

      Share of Healer Specializations in Weekly Top 500 Runs
      The meta is really stable within a single patch, and spec representation within the top 500 barely changes. The data has a zig-zag trend. Spec numbers, mostly the top specs, go up and down each week due to the Tyrannical/Fortified split.
      On Tyrannical weeks, top pushers bench their meta-class mains and play non-meta alts, or don't play at all. As a result, the share of meta specializations in the top 500 drops on Tyrannical weeks. Similarly, the share of meta specializations rises to its max during push weeks.
