PvP weapons

#1 » Post by majstorfanta » 04 Sep 2016 22:16

Hi, I was wondering if staff plans on reducing requirements for pvp weapons once aq40 is fully released.
If not I d like to suggest it is done since they are not bis anymore :)

I think PrimalWoW wants to stay as true to the vanilla experience as possible*. One would for example want the riding skill both earlier and cheaper, but it is part of the Vanilla experience, so they keep it more of a luxury there.

If the PvP weapons are the same price as they were during Vanilla, I won't see this being altered.

Yeah they are kinda at 3k arena points which isnt a problem as much as 2350 rating req.
And pvp items in general were gradually becoming more available with releasing new raids.

What rating would you suggest to result in them being more available without becoming too available?

Looking at current arena ladder, 2k would be ok.
Another way, which I think is better, would be to reach particular HK count like 10k so ppl have more incentive to play bgs which happen more often than arenas anyway so why not support that. Plus in vanilla, to get these weapons, only thing you had to do is to farm bgs so this way it will replicate it better and 10k hk is not that easy to get to.
In comparison only 5 players reached that cap of 10k HK for now and I m sure until now 4 managed to get the weapons by reaching 2350 rating so it is pretty close (We have 4 players that have the wpn while the other way we d have 5).
HK count way seems more acessible and it will surely boost pvp activity.
One more thing, some classes like locks and s priest and holy palas have their tier above everyone else in arenas so it is kinda unfair or even impossible for others since you can not beat them continously in order to have high enough rating, while in BG it is more balanced and everyone can get handfull of HKs if they are active.

+1,

2k rating seems reasonable with the reduced arena activity. 10k honorable kills would maybe make it more similar to vanilla in terms of battleground farms.

Arena activity hasn't rly dropped compared to the last season, so i wouldnt agree that 2k is a reasonable rating here.

I asume you are talking about TW, because your arguement is invalid for PW

Agree on switching to his, 10k doesnt seem far fetched in current bg enviorment. But raise it if activity hightens. Also let lower gearings continue through arenas so ppl have incentive to play them
