I'm guessing this is meant to be something like the special weekend buffs they do in Diablo 3.
But.... If this doesn't increase the cap, then it doesn't help, really. :\"
What a coincidence that it coincides with the Wildstar launch!
What's the point of this lol?
Woohoo, now it'll only take a half hour to cap valor for the week. Good thing too, putting in an entire hour for the week was gonna be horrible.
Heh. :-)For half that time, I'll be doing the Darkmoon Faire. During that time, I'll be able to do my farm, and do the Darkmoon Faire on all 11 alts on the server.On the Sunday and Saturday, I MIGHT be able to level one of my lowbies.So... No valor for me, for half of that...But in the rest of the time, my main has a bunch of gear that can be upgraded. So I'll be able to upgrade one 5.4 item by 4 upgrades...
And what about people who solo quest and log on every day just to do that? We should get an equivalent! This just seems like a strategy to get people to PvP even more.
I reallyyyyyyyy wish that we had an increase in the valor cap by 100% with this buff. 2,000 valor per week for this limited duration would (insert meme here) make me SOOOO happy!
was kind of hoping to see 6.0.* for the wildstar launch week
this has nothing to do with wildstar and it's effects won't influence it in the least. it's for those already playing to catch up on alts faster and for those who haven't finished to get a boost forward (along with the upgrade rank ups giving them a leg up)in other words. the usual content consuming aids that before came in the form of raid nerfs, not come in the form of currency earning and gear upgrading buffs.We've officially entered post-expansion slow down and thus constraints are being loosened as always.
The only thing I regret about this is that I had already capped 6 out of my 8 90s prior to this taking effect. It would have been WAY less Timeless Coins if I had waited. Oh well.
Why the buff will stay only for 2 weeks? does that mean the 6.0 patch coming after 2 weeks?
According to that text, the buff is only active during weekends.
This sounds great for people needing to gear alts but for the rest it doesn't do a thing. I can get valor capped in a few hours , so if they removed valor cap or raised it during that short period of time it would benefit everyone a lot more, But none the less a boost is a boost,
But the blue text above indicates 5/30 THROUGH 6/10...so not just weekends...
How pointless when Valor is capped? They are trying to imitate the company that developed Diablo 3 and pretend they treat their customers as good but they don't. With a monthly fee you're basically getting a near useless pve only bonus. "For this week's bonus, only play our game 2 hours instead of 4. But hey we still got your money!"
