No Goblin & Worgen Heritage Armor in Patch 8.2.5

Recommended Posts

52Htolh.jpg

Sadly, there will be no Heritage Armor added in Patch 8.2.5.

Both Goblins and the Worgen received new models in Patch 8.2.5, but Blizzard today confirmed that they were no plans for any Heritage Armor questlines, even though the latest MMORPG.com interview claims the direct opposite.

So according to the interview with Morgan Day and Shani Edwards on MMORPG dot com, it was mentioned that the heritage armor sets for worgen and goblins will be landing at the same time as the model upgrades.

I lack the posting count to have permission to include links in my posts but the article on there is titled “New World of Warcraft 8.2 Info: Tyrande, Sylvanas, Customization, OH MY!” for those who want to go have a look themselves. Here’s a quote, though:

"Goblin and Worgen fans will be pleased to hear that the long-awaited model update for each will be arriving in a future content patch.

“Shortly after Rise of Azshara, you’ll see that,” Morgan explained. “These are the two races that haven’t been updated. They’ll have new heritage armor with that as well.”

Is this still going to be the case? I ask because there was no mention of this in the development notes for the 8.2.5 PTR. Can we get some blue confirmation as to whether or not those plans have changed?

Hello.

I can confirm that 8.2.5 does not include any new Heritage Armor questlines

Possibly in the 8.3 patch maybe?  I'm not really surprise that there will not be a heritage armor quest for these updated models right off the bat.  Figured Trolls and Dwarves would be up next but I can always be wrong.

Perhaps they will require war campaign quests coming up in 8.3, like Tauren do in 8.2. Still waiting for Draenei heritage armor at some point. ?

Updating models.... but not giving heritage armor to some of the oldest races in the game? Interesting logic Blizzard. They probably figure people don't play either race enough or just don't want to.

There are other races that are older than goblin and worgen that don't have their racial armours. In the grand scheme of things Pandas were the only non-allied race that were added after them. So I'd hardly call them "some of the oldest races" in the game.

UNfortunately? Have you in this age of cosmetics already forgotten what an actual content is? Certainly not a set everyone can get awarded for mindlessly grinding the same old content again. Blizz thinks they can fire half of the staff and just make do with 2 people sitting and drawing cosmetic crap and you're just falling for that. Are you also going to pay 25 euros for a "new" wyvern those 2 people didn't even bother to colour? Blizz is bad but swallowing all of their *filtered* is part of the problem.

I guess you're on this bandwagon too... Yes, they released some mounts. no, they didn't "only put all the interesting mounts in the store"

Is Blizz perfect? of course not. but they put  a LOT of crap into the game. There is nothing wrong with adding more cosmetics and not everything has to be some 500 hour slog to get. Let people have their fun collecting mounts and transmogs, you go have fun with whatever it is you have fun. it's not that complicated

I don't mean to tell anyone how to have fun. My problem is, cosmetics and grind is the only kind of "fun" that gets realesed these days. Of course you have raids every once in a while but that doesn't mean only adding cosmetics and grind for the next half a year is fine. You only do those kinds of things because there is nothing better to do. Not that there is something wrong with this but complaining about more cosmetics not being added instead of complaining about no content being added means you really forgot what entertainment is about. It's about them trying to entertain you, not you trying to entertain yourself with whatever crap they throw at you. Actually everything being 500hr slog to get is where I see the problem. Nazjatar is a grind, heritage is a grind, expedistions, warfronts, reputation, you name it. Tell me with a straight face that this is fun.

Now, I actually won't disagree with this. I think the problem is they TRIED to make these fun, they just didn't stick. Complaining about not enough cosmetics is a silly problem that I do, again, agree with being a problem.

My issue is more how can they add more content that people enjoy and don't feel is just a slog/grind. Expeditions were an attempt, same with warfronts. M+ is one of the few attempts that stuck. The community as a whole seems to be... unsure, what they want. Some want classic which won't ever add more content, others want more cosmetics to farm, and some are just here that want more raids. Blizz is between a rock and a hard place because they can't focus on one group, and they can't focus on ALL the groups. So it's really not a lack of trying for Blizz, but a problem of... nothing they do makes people happy.

Blizzard adds the Heritage Armor where the story fits. Gnome and Tauren for their involvement in 8.2. Mechagon + Bains imprisonment and jailbreak. If both the Goblin and Worgen races gets a more chance to shine in the spotline then it would make sense to add the armor.

Trust me, I´d like the armor to arrive with the model updates but thats not happening now is it.

Well, Dwarf and Blood Elf were rather loosely tied to this expansion. They were more about exploring their pasts, so they can approach it from this angle as well. Worgen and Goblin questlines could have something to do with their return to Gilneas and Kezan, for example.

Would have been nice if 8.3 brought some involvement in war campaign with less "used" races (so they don't just "disappear" after their presence in Darkshore).

      A calm week in Mythic+, where we see Windwalker move up in its weakest bracket and Fire actually see a drop anywhere, while Subtlety has a very good week and might be ready to dethrone the eternal blue king.
      Note: The logs are based on POINTS, 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're also using the Normalized Aggregate Scores numbers, for clarity, meaning the top spec is marked as 100 and then the rest are ranked in relation to that peak point.
      This past week was Tyrannical, Bolstering, Explosive (and Tormented).
      All Keys
      Windwalkers return to the top 3, correcting their drop from last week while Subtlety actually comes much closer to Fire's eternal throne. Arcane rises two into the top 5, pushing Affliction and Balance down, as Shadow sees the biggest movement in the high percentiles, jumping 4 into 8th. Marksmanship drops one and Havoc gets in-between the Warriors in the middle of the pack , as the bottom 5 remain the same, with Retribution dropping to dead last.

      Mythic+ All Keys 95th Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
      The all percentages bracket is starting to look more like the 95th, as Subtlety takes 2nd place here as well, but Affliction is still doing a lot better and keeps its 3rd place at least. Arcane is doing even better here compared to last week, jumping 4 into 6th, while Fury dropped 3 spots seeing Havoc, Unholy and Survival pass it in the middle of the pack.

      Mythic+ All Keys All Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
      High Keys
      Fire hasn't managed to take over the +15s quite yet and the standings remain the same in the top 5, but 6th sees a big change as Havoc moves there, rising 2 spots. Survival and Assassination are the next to rise, 3 and 4 spots respectively, as Fury drops 3. All the specs are incredibly close in the 15s still, so even the bottom of the pack is doing really well here.

      Mythic+15 All Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
      Windwalker retains its No.1 spot in the 20ies and Fire actually drops a space, as Subtletly had a really good week across all keys it seems. Arms and Arcane both moved up, with the Warrior spec surpassing the Mage along the way. Havoc jumped 3 spots and almost made it to the top 5, while Assassination was the biggest mover, rising a whole 7 spots into 8th!
      Mythic+20 All Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
       
      For even more in-depth data for each individual key head on over to Warcraft Logs. And if you're interested in more info on the specs themselves you can always check out our class guides or our extensive Mythic+ guides as well, which have tier lists, dungeon rankings and more.
