Valor Upgrade Limitations No Longer Account-Wide in Patch 9.1

Recommended Posts

Valor upgrade limitations are no longer account-wide and you must earn a certain Mythic Score Rating on your alts to if you want to upgrade Mythic Dungeon Gear in Chains of Domination.

Before Patch 9.1, you earned the Shadowlands Keystone Master: Season One Shadowlands Keystone Master: Season One achievement on your main, which was account-wide, and made upgrading gear with Valor available on alts too.

However, with the implementation of the new Mythic Score System, this is no longer the case and you need to earn a certain ranking on your alts too.

Well that went to *filtered* real fast. Hopefully an oversight and this will change back otherwise ye *filtered* alts. The mount is already *filtered* enough being just a recolour...

Somehow, do not really mind it. Even liking it, in fact.

So long you can play an alt to get 2k, and I mean come on, timing a 15 wasn't anything difficult in week 1, with no 9.1 gear, at will only get easier over time.

And if you can't... well, either you barely play that alt, in which case why would you need that level of gear, or you just don't deserve it.

But of course your casual Joe that brought his fully upgraged FOTM alt to do a whooping 3k dps last season would disagree, lol.

There is so much wrong with this sentiment that I don't even know where to start, but the notion that people have to deserve gear in your eyes is the one that's bothered me since people were standing on top of the old Org AH complaining about people in "welfare epics" back in the day. I mean, damn, special snowflake much?

Deserving in MY eyes? :DD

Newsflash: this is a game. Which means: you beat stuff to get things. You can't beat stuff - things stay out of your reach. That is literally how it works.

Complaining such as yours is just among those "I don't want to invest time and effort, just give me things!". Which is double hillarious given how easy it is to get a KSM.

i also like the changes but i dont think that this will change much in the long run. people who cant play their twinks still get carried by their premades or they just buy boosts. KSM really is easy to get thought.

Even premades kinda expect you to pull at least some of your own weight, and as for boosters, it can swing either way depending on how costly KSM is (i.e. people getting discouraged to buy multiple KSM boosts instead of just one).

My frustration is mainly aimed at those 'everyday Joes' mentioned above, and if now they'll need to actually learn playing something if they want it geared - it's the most positive change one can hope for.

Still, yeah, S2 KSM being laughably easy is the main reason I don't think there's anything wrong with it. Could use another 30% buff.

well you actually dont even need to play keys in time for the new KSM, if you got enough time or enough time passed you can carry a freshly lvl 60 character just through some +16 keys and hes KSM

Not hugely a fan of this change- genuinely hope it's just an oversight because I don't really want to get KSM on 3 characters? Oh well, guess maybe it'll be a good sign to chill out on my WoW play time.

      We've seen the crazy Torghast speed runs with players just sprinting to the finish line in a mad dash to the sub-3 minute mark, but today we have... well a different kind of mad dash!
      Gitoff has gone for speed AND performance in layer 12, not only going pretty fast in general (perhaps not as fast as the recent 2 minute 56 second run, but definitely faster than most of us can ever hope to go), but also getting the 5-star flawless score as well!   The immediate comment in the video description? "Wasted at least 30seconds on floor 1 :(" Granted, Gitoff did have a nice little 9-minute Momentum buff ready before entering the run, but that's preparation for you!

      The final hotfixes of the week focus on Shards of Domination tuning.
      July 30 (Source)
      Items and Rewards
      Shards of Domination [With weekly maintenance in each region] Blood Link – The damage and healing amount has been increased at all ranks by 20%. [With weekly maintenance in each region] Winds of Winter – The amount of damage and healing stored by the Winds has been increased at all ranks by ~45%. Developers’ note: The difference between the three Rune Words for the Shards of Domination system is bigger than we want it to be. We have identified and fixed a bug in Winds of Winter which was preventing some damaging and healing abilities from counting towards its total, and we have retuned Winds of Winter and Blood Link so that the relative power between Rune Word bonuses is more balanced. Jotungeirr, Destiny's Call will now reset its cooldown at the end of boss encounters. Fixed an issue where Ticking Sack of Terror could trigger more than intended in the presence of multiple trinkets.

      As the WoW team mentioned in their statement, they have been removing references "that are not appropriate for our world". While we've noticed the /spit emote change on the BCC PTR, most/all of the other content removal seems to be centered on references to Alex Afrasiabi, who was talked about in the Activision Blizzard lawsuit. Today we'll take a look at some of the things already removed from the game and some that remain, as the removal seems to be an ongoing process.
      First off we have many references already removed, with the Fras Siabi and Foror names being replaced by Ezra Grimm and Nostro. There's many more items, NPCs etc. related to the two names above and others, which you can check out over on Wowhead. The most notable NPC change, however, is the one that received immediate retribution from players when news of the lawsuit broke, as Field Marshall Afrasiabi is now Field Marshall Stonebridge. For a longer list of some of the items that have been removed, check out Wowhead's article here.

      Source: Wowhead.
      However, it seems the work is still ongoing, as there are some references that have not been addressed yet, or some that didn't quite go through completely, like the below. You can see the while the NPC's name remains problematic, it is actually changed in the chat window when he speaks:

      Source: MrGraffio.
      While many references to Fras Siabi have been removed from Stratholme, like the mini-boss, quest etc, at least one remains:

      Source: Thekingchem.
      And then there's this very specific one, which might have even gone completely missed if yuvalal hadn't spotted it, as Foror is mentioned in a conversation between two NPCs in the Escape from Durnholde Keep/Old Hillsbrad Foothills Caverns of Time dungeon:

      Source: yuvalal.

      Clearly the removal of references is still ongoing, and even the ones missed above may already be removed from the game when you read this, as Blizzard have a lot of them to go through.

      Blizzard announced some nerfs for Shards of Domination set bonuses recently. They even made it live briefly, but have been reverted, as the devs didn't want to proceed with the change.
      Further Shard adjustments will be made in the coming days, but they don't want to nerf them now that many players have obtained and upgraded them.

      Shards of Domination Earlier this week, a change to the power of Shards of Domination set bonuses (e.g. Chaos Bane) was briefly applied to the live game. We are no longer planning to proceed with that change at all. We may make further adjustments in the coming days, but we will not reduce the power of Shards now that many players have earned and upgraded them.

      Tired of looking up Soul Ash and Soul Cinder costs? Check out this simple macro that tells you how much of each you need to upgrade Legendary items in Patch 9.1!
      If you run the following macro in the chat, you will see how much Soul Ash / Soul Cinders you need for:
      A new Rank 1 and 4 Legendary; Rank 5 and 6 Soul Cinder costs; Soul Ash & Cinders cost from Rank 1 to 6. The macro was created by Shinela and improved by DoverBoys.
      /run local f,r,i,j,a,c=C_CurrencyInfo.GetCurrencyInfo,"\nRank","\124T3743738:0\124t","\124T4067362:0\124t" a=f(1828).quantity c=f(1906).quantity print(r,"1:",i,1250-a,r,"4:",i,5150-a,r,"5:",j,1100-c,r,"6:",j,1650-c,"/n",r,"1 to 6:",i,3900-a,j,1650-c) The following appears in the chat window when you run it.
