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).

      It's time to find out what awaits us in Patch 8.2.5 which is now available for playtesting on Public Test Realms.
      Welcome to our Patch 8.2.5 content hub. We will be frequently updating it with links to our latest news coverage.
      Patch 8.2.5 Release Date Speculuation
      You can now pre-download Patch 8.2.5 ahead of release through the Battle.net app.
      Official Patch Notes
      To learn more about what's coming in Patch 8.2.5, check out the official patch notes.
      Allied Races
      While no Allied Races have been confirmed for Patch 8.2.5, we're speculating that Blizzard is adding Mechagnomes and the Vulpera of Vol'dun this time around.
      The Future of Allied Races Vulpera Coming in Patch 8.2.5 New Goblin and Worgen Models
      Blizzard is adding new models for both races introduced back in Cataclysm. Blizzard confirmed that there will be no Heritage Armor in 8.2.5.
      Goblin and Worgen Models Preview Celebrate 15 Years of Warcraft
      November 2019 marks the 15th anniversary of World of Warcraft, and players who log in during the event period will receive a celebration package in the mail with a Lil' Nefarian pet and other in-game goodies. Throughout the duration of the event, you’ll be able to participate in three unique raids with iconic encounters from past expansions along with an old-school-inspired Alterac Valley battleground. Players who defeat all nine bosses in the raid wings will receive the Obsidian Worldbreaker, a Black Dragonflight mount inspired by Deathwing. Players who participate in Alterac Valley will receive a new anniversary event currency which can be exchanged for two new mounts: the Stormpike Battle Charger (Alliance) and the Frostwolf Snarler (Horde).
      Obsidian Worldbreaker Mount Preview Frostwolf Snarler & Stormpike Battle Charger Mount Preview 15th Anniversary Alabaster Mounts Honeyback Harvester (Bee Mount)
      Alliance players will finally be able to get their hands on the long-awaited Bee mount (Honeyback Harvester)
      Where Is My Bee Mount? New Timewalking Raid: Firelands
      When Cataclysm Timewalking is active, max-level players will be able to form raid groups and enter the Sulfuron Spire once more. As with previous Timewalking raids (Black Temple, Ulduar), your gear and power are scaled to the challenge, and all the bosses and rewards you expect lie in wait.
      Party Sync
      Blizzard is experimenting with a new mode in the forthcoming patch that makes it easier for players in a party to do quests and play together: Party Sync. When players activate Party Sync, everyone in the party becomes aligned to the same quest state, including phases. By mousing over a quest in your tracker, you can see who is on the quest, what their progress is, and who’s ready to turn in the quest. There’s something else we’re going to try out on the PTR, a “replay” quest feature. This will allow players who have already completed certain quests to replay those quests with their friends for rewards that are appropriate to their current level, regardless of the original level of the quest.
      They're also relaxing level restrictions on queueing for instanced content with your friends. This allows lower-level players to queue for content in their level range, and higher-level players can choose to join them by having their level scaled down while they’re in the instance. This feature will be available for dungeon instances for PTR Week 1, with PvP instances being flagged in the following weeks. Please note that unlike Timewalking, when your level is scaled down via Party Sync you will temporarily lose access to abilities and powers (such as Azerite traits) with requirements that exceed your reduced level.
      Party Sync Detailed Recruit A Friend Returns
      Coming in 8.2.5 is a revamped Recruit A Friend system. If you have active game time you’ll be able to recruit your friends—both brand-new to the game and returning champions—to share in your adventures. To do so, you’ll be able to use a new URL generation tool to create a custom link to give to your friends. By following the link, you’ll be connected to each other and will be able to see if they have purchased game time, resulting in rewards for you! For each month your recruits have active game time, you’ll earn a new reward such as unique pets, mounts, game time and more. These rewards unlock per month and scale with how many months your recruits have subscribed for. And, of course, with Party Sync you’ll be able to journey with your friends on any of your characters. We’ll have more information about Recruit A Friend rewards before 8.2.5 release.
