Primalist Invasion Gear Nerfed on the Dragonflight Beta

Recommended Posts

eXHQ3rn.jpg

In the latest Dragonflight Beta build, Blizzard nerfed the item level of gear from Primalist Invasions.

Primalist Invasions are world events in Dragonflight that will be available in Season 1. They offer two currencies that can be exchanged for PvE gear in Valdrakken.

Primalist Invasion gear sold my Mythressa was Item Level 382 before the change.

However, it got nerfed to Item Level 359. You can farm an unlimited amount of Elemental Overflow each week when Dragonflight Season 1 starts. The item level is on par with Heroic Dungeon gear.

Rethelshi sells a more powerful type of PvE gear for Storm Sigils called Primal Infused gear. You can only farm four sigils per week, so it will take a long time to unlock the whole set for your character. Before the change, Primal Infused gear used to have item level 395.

In the new Dragonflight Beta build, the gear is only item level 385, which is on par with Raid Finder difficulty. To buy Primal Infused equipment, you must also own the blue gear pieces from Mythresa.

Mixed feelings about it, i thought it was a cool idea to have gear that you can farm and grind for outside of dungeons and raiding that could help give you a leg up gearing wise and also help break up the same old same old...im sure this will still be good though.

Agreed. Its not the end if the world if gradual solo play gives higher ilvl than m0.  Especially when its much slower than group content. It gives people another fun excuse to do outdooors without forcing it, which imo could have been a net positive as outdoors have been a bit uninteresting since legion.

They need a path for solo players to earn a respectable set of gear. There are a lot of solo players in this game. I raid and I would have no problem with solo players earning raid level gear that caps somewhere between normal and heroic level. It might even encourage more raiding. I am just not sure this would be the right system for that. There needs to be some level of challenge to it. Maybe unlockable pieces after completing some difficult solo achieves or something.

But why you need a gear then?

They play the game and pay like we do, why should they be excluded from cool looking gear? Seriously, look at the Mythic sets compared to a set a solo player can get. We already get: titles, mounts, achieves, etc. for beating the harder stuff.

I wouldn't be opposed to solo players having a set that sat somewhere between Norm and Heroic if they completed certain solo challenges. It would keep more people playing which means more resources for the game.

Having gear obtainable for your character, especially in the early game, that has to do with something outside the normal/heroic Dungeon finder Que spam lets players continue the feeling of progression without feeling burnt out. idk about you but after 3 heroic dungeons i just feel tired and want to do something else. having the ability to go and do that content in the open world while still progressing your character is a good thing. I would have preferred if the gear provided was in the "in between," higher than heroic dungeon but lower than mythic gear. But hey, its still worth doing, even if its for a little bit.

Because even casual, non-raiders like seeing their characters improve. Should open world casuals get the same level of gear as mythic raiders? No, of course not, but that doesn't mean they shouldn't get anything. That's a good way to alienate a very large chunk of your player base (see: season 4 where PvP/Raids/Mythic got a huge ilevel boost and the open world got literally nothing. Not even a similar increase to ZM/sandworn/cypher gear. If you were a non-raider would you even want to keep playing at that point?)

It's easy to forget out here in internet land where people like to have high level discussions about endgame content, but the vast majority of players are not raiders. Hyper focusing the "three pillars" and ignoring the casuals is part of what drove WoW to its current state in the first place.

      We have another very useful video guide from the man with the unreasonably deep voice, as Danta takes us through the Glory of the Legion Hero and how to do it solo! Blizzard relatively recently changed the achievement to be soloable, but it will still take more than a reset as certain bosses are not always available.
      Aside from the achievement itself, you get a nice Nightborne/Suramar themed hippogryph, the Reins of the Leyfeather Hippogryph.

      And now on to the video!

      Update: it seems the boss rotation is different for EU and NA servers, as Danta mentions in one of the youtube comments:

      Who would've thought we'd see a rise in Mythic+ runs for the second consecutive week this late in the season?
      In the twelfth week of Season 3, players knocked out 1,222,291 Mythic runs. Just when we assumed the numbers would start to dip, the following two weeks threw us a curveball! Week 13 brought in 1,228,021 runs, and by Week 14, we hit a whopping 1,316,404 Mythic+ runs!

      (Courtesy of MythicPlusPoster)
      Here's a breakdown of the weekly run totals for each Dragonflight season to date. The data is based on raider.io and some of the weeks from Dragonflight seasons 1 and 2 are not available.

      This week's bonus event is Mists of Pandaria Timewalking.

      To-Do List for the Week of February 20
      You can buy Item Level 441 Veteran gear with Flightstones. Learn more here. The first thing you want to do is go to the Great Vault and select your piece of loot (only when you've unlocked any slots the previous week that is). Then, head to the center and select the "Aiding the Accord" quest. Don't forget to pick an activity tied to the Emerald Dream zone (either Superbloom or Emerald Bounty). Accept both weekly quests from within the in-game Adventure Journal (Shift+J). Use the Emerald Dream portal located in Valdrakken to reach the Emerald Dream. The portal is found at 62.9 57.5 in Valdrakken. Use TomTom for waypoints.  Once you land at the Central Encampment, pick up the weekly quest "A Worthy Ally: Dream Wardens" which requires you to farm 1,500 reputation with the new faction. Rewards: 500 Dream Warden reputation, 1,000 gold, between 12-15 Drake's Dreaming Crests, Item Level 441 Veteran gear piece.

Check out our guide to learn more about how to get it. Clear Amirdrassil for gear and loot in next week's Great Vault. A Heroic Fyrakk kill guarantees a token you can turn in for one Heroic Amirdrassil tier set piece. Depending on the difficulty, Fyrakk also drops an omnitoken for all classes that can be turned in for another tier set piece. Clear at least 8 dungeons to unlock all slots in the Great Vault next week. Complete at least 1 Superbloom for the weekly quest rewards for a cache containing a Dream Wardens Insignia that increases your reputation standing with the Dream Wardens by 1,000, a Veteran 1/8 Item Level 441 piece of gear, and a Dreamseed. There's a gold sink vendor near Valdrakken selling gear that will hit the Black Market Auction House in August 2024. Farm Flightstones and cap your crests. Check out our Emerald Dream zone guide for more info! Complete the weekly seed PvP quest for 1,000 reputation with the Dream Wardens. Unlock regular flying by checking out our Dragon Isles Pathfinder guide. Complete Dreamsurges for catch-up gear. I Haven't Played Patch 10.2.5 Yet
      Suppose you haven't played since Patch 10.2.5 went live. In that case, you should complete the Gilneas Reclamation which is started in the room leading to the Seat of Aspects, and the Dragonflight Epilogue available from Alexstrasza atop the Seat of Aspects.
