Not surprised, was expecting this.
Whelp, one less thing on the to-do list. I'm half glad honestly.
not worth bothering with then
Why would they make such a change on the PTR and then revert it for the release version?
In legion the level of the loot actually changed based on your personal raid progress. Or maybe it was ilvl? It was similar to the garrison table loot in WoD. Maybe it's back to that and on PTR people just had more raid progress to unlock the heroic reward? /shrug
Honestly, a 445 ilvl piece from Ny'alotha normal is a relatively weak reward for so much effort to do 5 overtuned timewalking dungeons. You're looking at least 1½ hours of playing to get that reward. If you are an average player like me you should be 450+ at this stage and have no use of it, unless you are gearing an alt.I'd much rather like to see a heroic item to be rewarded, something that can be useful for the substantial amount of time invested.
Yay I'm glad about this, while I wouldn't have had to I was gearing up to run 15 WoD dungeons.Now I won't.
IMO this is based on individual progression or ilvl, but I might be wrong. When I read something is based on PTR I always take it with a grain of salt. I was kind of expecting this. Still gonna do it as it's a chance for good corruption.
It used to be like this since they introduced (back then) weekend events... Heroic raid loot has always been awarded only from the mythic dungeon event.
They literally said that how it was on the PTR, how did you intend for them to KNOW what Blizzard would decide? Removed
I would like to thank Blizzard for giving me back some time the rest of the expac as this loot is not worth doing it at all on any char =)More time to go sit afk at rare spawns for hours and not get a pet/toy/mount drop
Maybe they are banking on people caring about the ap enough to do it. Ugh
Just like that I have no reason to do Timewalking the rest of the expansion. =/
*adds this to list of things Blizz has done to piss me off today*
Yep cross timewalking off the todo list. Not worth doing anymore.
The mission table reward caches were infinitely better these weekly event ones from timewalking.At least those scaled with your progress, if you'd killed X bosses on heroic or Y bosses on mythic,the cache would upgrade and give you loot matching the difficulty you were actively raiding.445 loot is just so useless in the current context, except for maybe a freshly dinged alt.
Thk god one less thing I feel I have to do to keep up with hear 445 item r worthless lol
