Item UpgradesCould you perhaps elaborate via non twitter as to why no more item upgrades please?
If you have 1000 Valor, you shouldn't have a hard decision about buying a new item vs. upgrading an old. Just buy a new one in 5.2.Why does Blizzard hate options so much? Talents, Upgrades, many stats went away. Do you think players are stupid?
On the contrary, players are so smart that they "solved" the simplistic talent design too quickly and never looked at it again. View SourceWill we be able to upgrade Malevolent (current 483 PVP gear) with Honor in 5.2, or will it still require ?
You can't upgrade gear in 5.2.not able to upgrade any gear, or only not able to upgrade 5.2 gear?
No gear. The NPC is goneWhat is happening to the already-upgraded gear? Will they keep stats/display upgrades on tooltips?
Upgraded gear will not lose its upgrades. Upgrading will likely return after 5.2, but we'll evaluate all the feedback and see. View Source
We kept buffing Blinding Light
because paladins thought it was weak in beta. We were wrong. It's probably okay for Ret as instant. View SourceHey GC, for how long are Arcane and Affliction going to remain 8-10% above all other classes/specs on bosses overall?
Probably until 5.2. We think they are both overpowered, but not so bad that hotfixes are critical. We'll keep an eye on it. View SourceAs a mage switching specs and 90 talents fight to fight to remain competitive is getting tiring. Roller coaster balance too.
Coupled with the fact that Fire damage was too high. The combo meant some felt they had to abandon Fire, which wasn't the intent. View Source
We think DKs are in a good place. My suspicion is those who feel weak are comparing themselves to warriors, who are too strong. View Source
We don't think healers need more damage, except for Disc and possibly Mist. Others have a lot of offensive pressure in PvP already. View Source
ContentDungeons are right now a near worthless piece of content after reaching item level 463. Give us a reason to run
They have rare epics and they are an efficient source of valor (esp. first of the day). Don't you always grow out of dungeons? View Source
The 5.2 valor gear requires a rep, but it's not a rep you earn from dailies. (There is also a daily rep like in 5.1.) View Source
