No Goblin & Worgen Heritage Armor in Patch 8.2.5

Recommended Posts

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).

      The creator of Subcreation, Alcaras, created a visual comparison of M+ and raid item level distribution, comparing the ongoing Shadowlands Season 4 with Dragonflight Season 1.
      With the recent changes that surfaced about Great Vault scaling up to +18 in Dragonflight Season 1 and the introduction of Unique Drops, Alcaras created a visual representation of item level distribution in Mythic+ and raids in both Shadowlands Season 4 and Dragonflight Season 1.

      Fishbones is back with more Glyphs, this time creating grimoire casting animations for spells! We've already seen the very talented glyph-maker take on many classes and create various cool and weird concepts from them (ranging from blacksmith elementals and Warrior battle standards to many versions of Paladin wings, Zandalari Warlock minions and a lot more) and now casters get to sling spells out of giant books!
      These would need to be for longer cast spells, as the standard ones may get a little annoying with the flashy animation, as acknowledged by Fishbones as well.

      When it comes to fan creations there are many different levels of awesome, from something you can see a ton of passion was put into and it's cool because of that, to a unique art style used, creativity at work etc. But sometimes there really is no need to qualify the awesomeness, as the work really speaks for itself. And, well, TethanProps' Frostmourne lightsaber 3D print is just that:
      And here's an earlier video without the light part:

       
      The best part is  you can actually even buy the files to 3D print it over on TethanProps' Etsy shop (for around $16)! Some truly impressive work and the Lich King himself would be proud.

      Blizzard made some tuning adjustments to a number of classes on the Dragonflight Beta before today's raid testing.
      (Source)
      Based on various data points, including recent Beta raid testing, we’re making tuning adjustments to a number of classes. In addition to new and returning abilities, the new talent trees allow players to choose abilities that were previously exclusive to one another in the talent row system.

      The amount of reputation required to increase Renown has been increased in the latest Dragonflight Beta Build.
      There are four main Renown factions in Dragonflight. The maximum Renown is 30 on launch. To increase your Renown by 1, you must currently fill the bar to 2,500 reputation. You gain reputation by completing quests (main campaign and side quest included).
      In the previous build, 1,000 reputation was required to increase your Renown.
      Fortunately, Renown achievements are account-wide, so unlocking the rewards on one character will automatically unlock them for your alts.
