I had 1 of each box +20k rep saved :(
Just like I said in a preivous post, blizzard probably saw people hording these ups.Well if you saved your repu, still 30k ap is still usefull (unless they hotfix that out too).
No surprise here, that was expected to happen. They didn't allow it to happen in Legion, there was no reason to expect that hoarding paragon chests so you can open them and be ahead day-one of the new patch would be a thing. Good thing I didn't keep any, but opened them the moment I got them. But either way - nothing lost, nothing gained.
Oh boy, Blizzard sure are going to extra lengths to artificially timegate getting high neck levels. Great game design : )
Good thing they waited until 5 days before patch for this... that really combats players who have been hoarding for weeks and don't just save the paragon chests they get this week.
30k AP is nothing to sneeze at, but what would have previously been 30k out of 50k needed to get 51, has now becomes 30k out of 85k needed to get 51 :(
I wish I could un-turn in my caches now :(
I have 2 paragon boxes in my bank and I am not HoA 50 yet. Should I turn them in before tuesday?
This actually screws people that were saving 1 set of caches vs saving turnins entirely. Obviously something was going to be done, but waiting til a few days before the patch with an unannounced ptr change is not the way to go about it.
Expected. Was logical that hoarding to be discouraged. What it was annoying, for everyone that got 50 neck months ago, was no conversion - to gold, or at least resources for extra AP. Any source of AP from any content you did for various unrelated reasons was just a slap in the face, useless reminder of a system that will go down in game history as a failure.
I wish there was something to spend war resources on. As well as many other (older) resources.
