In Topic: Legion Alpha - Arms Artifact Weapon Released!

Yesterday, 06:10 AM

Well, that didn't take them long to gut the utility that the Artifact weapon gave(btw, the victory rush heal was healing for 15%). zzzzz

maybe I am wrong then, and 2.2k arena rating will supplement/replace the normal/heroic pve gear grind - with how much shit that would generate in the pve community, I seriously doubt they would even consider it, but then again these are the same developers that are proud of WoD, so anything is possible

It will probably only supplement it at most. As you will probably only get one "good" strong box once a week...with a random piece of gear in it. Who knows. But we shall find out in time.

and there is no way that will completely 100% be the case, because it completely fucks up both sides

there will either be a continuation of ilvl scaling like we have now, or the highest ilvl pvp gear will be say 870 ilvl with zero stats other then stamina and strength/agility/intellect, vs mythic pve gear at 870 ilvl with equal primary stats and normal secondary stats

honestly what is the point of having pvp boots with haste and crit on them, if blizzard has decided beforhand that your pvp spec has 0% haste, 0% crit and 100% mastery, so once you enter arena the haste/crit on your boots is irrelevant anyway (obviously an extreme example, but you get the point)


considering this is a quote from a gigantic post about pvp, I imagine the intent was that pvp and pve players will both be able to earn the best gear "for pvp", but anyway

maybe i'm wrong, and grinding arenas will become part of mythic pve progression, who knows :)

I don't think you quite understand. With that logic, why would the gear even have main stats? Point is, the main stats don't even matter. Even the armor on the gear doesn't matter. Just the ilvl in pvp.

As well, you could consider everything to be part of "mythic" raid progression next expansion. As there will be a large variety in ways you can earn top end gear... or so they say. It's just that the people doing higher level stuff will get that gear at a faster rate.

The other point is, is that, top end gear will be valuable in other places. Such as pvp, raids and challenge modes. Since it is valuable in those areas the most, it is likely you will earn "mythic" gear from all of those. But will still be able to get the occasional piece from something not as serious/high end.

I just doubt that they will basically give you a piece of gear that is nothing more than ilvl. As well, the artifact power increases you get from pvp will directly affect every other aspect of the game you do(regardless if the armor is just ilvl, you will still get a mythic ilvl artifact weapon from pvp).

if you exclusively pvp, why would you need gear that functions outside of pvp?

inside pvp areas, you will have stats, since your stats have nothing to do with your gear other then the ilvl

or do people actually think that 2.2k pvp gear will = mythic gear for raids, lol


Considering it says "So, in Legion, gear is gear, regardless of where you earned it, with no PvP-specific stats or fluctuating item levels, and the best players in both PvP and PvE content will be able to earn the best gear."

I assume pvpers will indeed have access to gear that will be competitive with other top-end gear in the game. As well, the way people earn gear in Legion will be vastly different than any other expansion. Claiming you will be able to get "mythic" quality gear from a lot of sources, but at a slower rate compared to higher end stuff(such as high end arenas, raids, challenge modes, ect).

pvp gear only has ilvl and main stat, there are no secondary stats and no set bonuses etc

so if you raid mythic you can use that ilvl gear, and if you exclusively pvp you will have the same ilvl while pvping, but zero secondary stats outside of pvp

Edit: also amusing that they could push all these changes live right now, and pvp would still be scripted and boring as fuck despite them, because classes are so scripted and boring as fuck :(

Ummm, where did you read all of that? Pretty sure the gear will have secondary stats. As gear without secondary stats would be near worthless. They will probably not have set bonuses(though they still could).

Unless you mean bonuses stats? Like sockets, warforge, avoidance, ect(they can probably have those, too, though).
