So the option to further upgrade a cloak after rank 15 is still either vision full clear (for the first time in a week) and/or killing nzoth? That's gonna suck hard for alts who are not up to date. As someone who has been lax on one alt, and has recently started to level cloaks on two others, that's just... disappointing.
I see some people are misconstruing what I said.First, my complaint is about getting the +3 resistance upgrade for any character who is not already at the weekly max. Second, I'm not talking about a 5mask run.Third, I was still hoping that after two weeks, there'd be an update about the catch-up for the +3 upgrade. But there isn't. I didn't play Cata through Legion so I have no idea about any probable catch-up mechanisms that may have existed there that are similar to 8.3. However, even before 8.3 in just BFA itself, if you wanted to gear up any character, the process was simple. You ran enough Mythic keys, crafted the necessary gear, upgraded benthics, did the raids, and you wouldnt ever be in a position to FORCIBLY be permanently behind. And that's what this system for the +3 upgrade is.The argument has nothing to do with "alts shouldnt be well geared as mains". That's an inaccurate argument at best. Raiding, even in LFR, isnt possible for everyone. Certainly for me, the constraints are timezones and the time necessary to put in for significant progress. But what I can do, is multiple vision runs in a week. Who doesn't want to be (feasibly) running Rank 5 or 6 TD or IS or whatever other choice of corruption effect you prefer? We are in a position where we have no choice in the matter because it is unlikely that Blizzard is going to change their stance on it, but at the same time it certainly isnt an encouraging design.Perhaps it could be changed to if you've done a full clear, then you can attempt a second run for a second core with the requirement that you do it with 1-2 masks active. The content is certainly challenging enough, and the difference in the levels is quite significant as well.As for why "it wasn't an issue before and now is", well, it's more the fact that I'm enjoying a different class right now and want it to be at the same level as the previous one. Not asking for a handout, just a more viable alternative for the catch-up.
I'd rather decorate my house than get all my alts to Rank 15. Once on a horde char and once on a ally char is enough for me. 20 other chars will have to do without !
Pretty huge week for those getting 62 resist this week. Means you can wear 110 corruption (with a +10 resist neck essence on )without going over 40. Pretty much means most people will get even more gear customization with corruption this week.Personally i got a 10k dps boost simply because I was able to wear an extra tier 3 versatility proc corruption than I normally do. Honestly will say after grinding this system for some time, I am enjoying this end-state... mind you there are still some obvious flaws with the system.
So we get a core for the first full clear PER WEEK? Ok that explains why i did not get a core tonight. Ugh, ill be behind a week forever lol, not raiding extra anymore than i have to per week. Welp guess i get +62 next week. :(
