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).

      Valor Points are coming this week and are supposed to save/improve Mythic+ gearing but, as our own Seliathan goes into in-depth, it's not quite a good enough improvement on the already pretty messy Mythic+ loot system.
      Seliathan is an Icy Veins Rogue class guide writer, completed several World First Mythic+ clears, including the +20, and he wrote a big piece for Raider.IO, analyzing the M+ gear and the way the Valor Point system will affect it, the flaws in both, and how to improve them. And while Blizzard are removing the 1500 cap on Valor, exactly as the article suggests, there are many more problems and potential solutions presented there. He goes over many topics, including how M+ gearing compares to PvP and raiding, what the actual purpose of M+ is and where it fits in the overall gearing scheme, the lack of other rewards in M+, the need for higher Keystone Master-type achievement tiers and a lot more. Here are some highlights, but head straight on to the full (and huge) analysis post on Raider.IO if you want all the details:
      There's a LOT more to read over in the full article on Raider.IO, with many excellent points and insights into Mythic+ and how it could be improved, so make sure to read the whole thing!

      We now have official confirmation that the 1500 held Valor cap has been removed! We recently had an in-depth look at the system and its flaws, and while this particular change will improve it significantly, there's still a lot of issues with Mythic+ gearing, so check out the full article here.
      Valor Cap (source)
      This is correct. There will not be a limit of 1500 Valor that can be held.
      I’ve put a strikethrough on that part of the OP.

      Today, we’re looking at the most popular team compositions for Mythic+ in Shadowlands Season 1.
      Disclaimer
      The data used in this article comes from Benched.me, a website with a Composition Explorer function, which tells you the most-popular compositions for Mythic+. It has a search function that allows you to select specializations for each party slot and find compositions.
      The Most Popular Team Compositions for Mythic+ in Shadowlands Season 1
      Currently, the most popular team comp with 36,604 runs so far in Season 1 includes a Vengeance Demon Hunter (Tank), Restoration Shaman (Healer), Marksmanship Hunter (DPS), Balance Druid (DPS), and Fire Mage (DPS).
      In 2nd place, we have the exact same team composition, with just one change. The Restoration Shaman (Healer) is replaced with Holy Paladin. The composition has 21,852 runs.
      In 3rd place, we have the same composition, but the Healer got replaced with a Restoration Druid this time around. We've seen this composition in 17,546 runs.
      Based on the data, it is relatively safe to assume that the current Mythic+ meta revolves around a Vengeance Demon Hunter tank, Marksmanship Hunter + Balance Druid + Fire Mage (DPS), with healers rotating between Druid, Shaman, and Paladin.
      You can check out the table below for more information about the most popular comps, including Average/Max Keystone, cleared, and more. We encourage you to visit Benched.me for even more runs.

      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).
