Wait, what? 375 from weekly conquest cap?


#1

Ok this must be some kind of joke, I can get higher ilvl from a freaking world quest emissary, then from playing pvp for a week and getting to 500 conquest.

This is one of the worst gearing systems I saw, it is worse then m+ was before TR was introduced and still they do not have and idea how to fix it, or they wont, because of “reasons”. Whole grind for that item feels like a waste of time, its worthless and its going to scraper, why do i need 375 weapon when I use 385 weapons for 2 months now, I only grind weekly conquest for a chance to get something good, NEXT WEEK!!!

Buy the time I am able to reach HC raider ilvl season will end.

This is just lazy, unethical, nasty way of time prolongation of gearing process so you have to play whole monthly sub to get a 4th good item.

By the time pvp player gets his 5th item HC raider or M+ player will be fully geared, and trying higher level content.

This system just made that gearing for pvp you do in pve content, and that is just stupid.

The current schedule of rewards is as follows, in weeks when the Conquest reward is an Azerite piece you will be able to choose from four different pieces of Azerite gear. For weeks when the Conquest reward is not an Azerite piece, trinket, or weapon, you will be able to choose gear from two different slots such as legs and wrists, hands and back, or finger and feet.

(The week 1 reward is lower as Mythic Battle for Dazar’alor is not open, much like the week 1 rewards for Season 2 of Mythic Keystone dungeons are lower.)

Also worth noting is that players who earn 500 Conquest points in a given week will receive one Quartermaster’s Coin in addition to the piece of gear outlined in the table above.

Players might also earn an additional piece of gear or Quartermaster’s Coin each week by using a weekly bonus roll token in PvP. 10 Quartermaster’s Coins can be exchanged for a Warlord’s Trophy, which players can use to upgrade a piece of Sinister Gladiator’s gear to a higher item level (based on their current Rated PvP bracket).

This is so bad, I can’t even describe it… Sigh

Thx for clearing stuff up a bit, but still that “Quartermaster’s Coin” does not make this system any better imo first 10 is a way too big of a number to get aprox. 3-4 weeks and bonus roll is better used in a raid when you target something you rly need, instead of just a simple ilvl upgrade.

Pvp player are way too depending on pure RNG, there is no way to target any piece of gear outside of this weekly caps, not to mention that getting Azerite gear from weekly chest is so rare occasion. I think i only got it once or twice last season and that was the ones I really used just because of Ilvl not because of the traits on them(at least until some traits got changed in 8.1)

Getting something like TR to drop from weekly chest can help situation a bit, it will allow pvp players to target Azerite armor faster.

Right traits can be rly big advantage in PvP situations, and not having them often sucks and lower your chance of wining arenas a lot ofc depending on a class you play.

And I will remind you that when TR was introduced in 8.1 we were promised pvp changes, that was over a month ago. If this is what it was meant by “changes” I am hugely disappointed and I can assume I am not the only one.

Edit:
And this weekly order shows me that pvp guys will not have that new azerite armor in every slot by week 7, to put that in perspective if you are lucky you can get everything you want in your Azerite slots this week by raiding and using 3 rolls on bosses that drop azerite gear you need. And that will put you in huge advantage in pvp for weeks.

I don’t do rated so I’m clueless about those coins. How do they work? ^^

#7

So we need to wait to week 10 to get ilvl 400 gear, and alliance are getting one piece pr week , right of the bat ??

i call bs


#8

It does indeed suck not to get a 400 item as you say, but you can get to the 400 item via CP faster than 10 weeks, if you feel like grinding though more than 500 cp per week?

This gearing system is very good at making people rage quit wow. You know the person who invented it needs serious medical assistance at replacing brain asap.
If you have any troubles finding brain donor please let us know, we will advise a trusted person with perfectly working and non damaged brain:)


(Vurtne) #10

the Quartermaster’s Coin doesn’t seem to work as intended as it gives a sigil to update ur gladiator piece instead of a warlord trophy, making it cmpletely useless…


#11

This is all good feedback that I’ve passed along. Thanks!


(Wispr) #12

“This is all good feedback that I’ve passed along. Thanks”

are you for real?
things like this have been stated countless for months, and…
im speechless, really.

but good thing this will be taken care off shortly then :slight_smile:
dont forget the pvp vendors while u are at it.


#13

Just reading all this gives me a headache. Everything in this game is so complicated now. How on earth are you supposed to approach all this if you’re a new player?


#14

There are plenty feedback like this on pvp forums.
In few words The main problem is you cannot get gear for pvp by playing pvp. People who enjoy only pvp are forced into playing island expeditions, emissary and warfronts quests and also raids just to get better gear for pvp. This is very bad gearing system and is the main reason people rage quite wow. You need to fix that asap.


#15

unsub and play something else. at the moment wow is in very bad state, In legion i enjoyed this game, now i cannot play. everything is overcomplicated and not working properly.


#16

Thank you for that, it would mean a lot to pvp community to fix this gearing system, or at least to make it less of a RNG chore.

Ofc many of problems of this systems were pointed out by community since first season. But its good to see that somebody finally passed something of a sort to devs(and informed us about it) that gives a feeling that somebody is actually listening to community. Again thx for that.


(Sylvare) #17

Still bad, last time I didnt complete the conquest because of 7 in a row not giving any upgrades, if 7 bars with no upgrade isnt enough of an incentive then 10 coins is basically like nothing is changing

Before I used to Just buy the Gear I want and when I was complete I continued to pvp with my newly acquired Gear, now getting the gear can take multiple conquest bars for items you dont even need or worse, dont even want

WoD had the best pvp gearing system imo, along with ilvl scaling up in instanced pvp

I play random BGs of 2 major reasons and 1 minor reason. 40% fun, 40% gear earned through CQs, and 20% honor farm for the mounts. I hit the hard cap last night.

From this week the CQ cap turned from soft to hard. So no more intensive CQ farming once you have hit the first 500 CQs.
The daily assaults was a part of my CQ farming and even with the up and coming nerf to ally in mind, it is a ganking fest especially if the assault is in the wrong zone.
I can live with that. It’s a part of this expansion’s odd storyline.

But as we now have a hard CQ cap, where can I find the motivation to keep warmode enabled 7/24 until the next reset?
Why should I do more BGs once I have hit the hard cap after the first 2-3 days after reset?

On the sunny side… I now have time to level alts and do stuff like mount-farm which I have delayed due to the intensive and time-consuming CQ farm. :heart: :slight_smile:


(Caitlyn) #19

Why though ? 375 is lower than Normal BfD and hardly better than Heroic Uldir lmao.


(Caitlyn) #20

You mean since Legion ? Also this bullcrap “thanks for the feedback I sent it to the devs” we’ve been hearing for almost 15 years now. They do listen when what people want can fit in their agenda. PvP vendors do not as they want to keep up with that “casino slot machine”-like reward system because it’s what theorically keeps you subbed cause you really want to complete that set. Easy as that.

If they implement PvP vendors they’ll have to deal with the massive outrage of PvE players that are going to ask for LK/Cata badge vendors instead of pure trash personal loot RNG and bonus roll tokens. And hell they’d be right to do so.
