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).

      Yesterday, we posted an update regarding Shadowlands Alpha and speculated that we might see it as early as next week. MMO-Champion noticed an update to the Battle.net App which made the wow_beta product no longer marked as deprecated and renamed it to Alpha which is obviously a good sign that Alpha is close.

      It seems Shadowlands Alpha has been delayed due to the coronavirus lockdown and the work-from-home policies implemented by Blizzard. Towelliee recently teased on his stream that a dataminable Alpha client could become available as early as next week around Monday/Tuesday. Blizzard also increased the frequency of new builds, hinting they might want to have a playable Alpha up soon.
      Encrypted Shadowlands Alpha Builds
      All Shadowlands Alpha builds are currently encrypted, meaning we aren't able to datamine them at this time. The work-from-home policies were implemented on March 14 and Blizzard released the first Shadowlands Alpha build since the policies were in place on March 17. Below, you can see a list of the most recent builds (taken from wow.tools). The last two builds (33874 and 33915) were released just two days apart, suggesting Blizzard might want to have a playable Alpha up soon.
      March 17 - 9.0.1 Build 33644 > 9.0.1 Build 33710 March 25 - 9.0.1 Build 33710 > 9.0.1 Build 33819 March 31 - 9.0.1 Build 33819 > 9.0.1 Build 33874 April 2 - 9.0.1 Build 33874 > 9.0.1 Build 33915 Dataminable Alpha Next Week?
      Towelliee said on his stream that we can expect a dataminable Alpha build early next week (April 6/7). The actual Alpha should become available a few days or a week later.

      On the MMO-Champ forums, he said Alpha has been pushed back numerous times and that Battle for Azeroth F&F Alpha started five days after the first client was pushed decrypted.
      Obviously, nothing has been confirmed yet and we'll need to wait until next week to figure it out!

      Xirev from Vashj (EU) has earned all 3,927 achievements that are currently available in the game. Congratulations!
      Xirev from the <Colour> guild managed to complete all achievements in World of Warcraft that have been added so far which must have taken a lot of dedication. He currently owns 484 out of 555 mounts and all battle pets.
      On reddit he joked that now he can finally play the game. Congrats!

      We've already seen Blizzard's official April Fools, uh, I mean patch 8.8.8 notes, so now it's time to take a look at what the community has created for this special day. Let's start off with the WoW reddit itself, as it got slightly reforged, with the header being distorted (and asking you to activate Windows), and the font changed to comic sans.

      Then it's on to fan creations, with two solid videos, starting with an epic Shadowlands login screen presentation.
       
      (Source 1, source 2)
      This next one is a weird one, but let's not think about it too much and just enjoy Sarguini:


      Method actually had one of the best entries today, as their "joke" actually sounds not only plausible, but is seemingly inevitable at some point in the future:
      That one actually scares me as I seriously think it's going to happen. I suppose I'd better get ready for Method 2 get the World First, as Limit 5 are 10% away from a kill, just ahead of Methods 1 and 3 and Limits 2 and 58.
      And we'll finish with the biggest one, which was done by WoWhead, who had some detailed info from the "8.3.5 PTR".
      They also had some cosmetics related to the Gift of N'Zoth, including Pepe and a whole bunch of tentacles,  but the big one was the summer mounts!
        
      And as a bonus, here are some Overwatch in-game googly eyes!
       
      I probably/definitely missed a bunch, so post your favorites in the comments, they don't even have to be WoW related!
