Please reduce the amount of marks required for R14 gear

Very few people have that kind of time to get R14. It’s not like people with jobs can just take off two months to work so they an grind honor every day for 16 -18 hours a day.

No, it shouldn’t.

The game is meant to be a challenge. Things require time investment and dedication to get. That’s what made classic and TBC such great games, and what makes Retail such a dump.

Learn to read. I said “some” and no one said “I want TBC to be retail” look at the spirit of the post instead of assuming everyone’s opinion. The original TBC pre-patch was nearly three times a long and all the OP wants is the ability to get the same gear they would have been able to get in the original pre-patch.

Tell me, what’s the point of this discussion?

  • Prepatch goes live tonight
  • Nothing will change about the R14 costs last-second
  • Blizzard obviously agrees with our point of view

So yeah…

Are you sure anyone else agrees with you? I’ve found plenty of posts and videos saying two weeks of pre-patch isn’t long enough and there is absolutely no way for everyone to have the same opportunity to get R14 before pre-patch. I still have to go to work and sleep just like a lot of other players. I’ve got T3 so I don’t need anything from gear, but I at least can empathize with people you know consider how things affect others and try to champion for their causes.

Scrolling through the thread, yes, I am absolutely sure of that.


Retail is where the challenge is, Classic should be kept easy.

It is easy.

But easy doesn’t mean “everyone should get everything within 2 weeks tops”.

When it’s irrelevant and pointless after those 2 weeks, then people tend to want it within those 2 weeks.

Perfectly understandable

Oh look someone who plays a DK asking for things to be made easier. Who’d of thought it, hey? lol No!

We’ve found the bug with this, and we’re deploying a hotfix soon that will have the effect of reducing Bonus Honor by a factor of 10, back to the amount it’s supposed to be.

We also double-checked other rewards, and we found that the number of Marks being rewarded have been correct.

Thanks for the reports!


this is ridiculous how can it be this little honor ? wont even bother with prepatch if its like this


By reducing the honor gained by a factor of 10 the hard part is now overwhelmingly the honor. It’s actually to the extent that it’s absolutely not remotely worth farming PVP gear anymore.

I just did an AV and got 84 honor. Will be shelving the PvP now and just focussing on the rest of the game, hoping they grant me the rank I earned for spending an entire week inside AV last week.


Its ridiculous, you can’t add the same rate as before because the duration of the prepatch isn’t the same, for a 12 days pre-patch blizzard do you think sometimes before making any changes ?


Haha they just made it 10 times harder

From 0-140k honor you will need to win about 650-700 AB’s or AV’s to buy the full pvp gear. This is completely stupid


I would probably change it back before everyone quits your moneygrabbing attempts at giving out catchup mechanics only if we pay blizzard for them are the premade groups who have everything ready for tbc getting honor reverted?

Its legit impossible to have any fun in any of your games because of the stupid decisions you make.


Realy? It’s joke? Are you saying that we should receive 200 honor per one bg? You gave us 2 weeks before the start of the tbc… Ok. You postpone opening the pre patch several times… hmm… Ok! Now you’re nerf honor! HMMMMMM NICE MOVE!!! thanks! gj!


And why exactly should they make it easy to get full R14?
