So they’re sticking with “the new raid tier = prior mythic raid” tune. Ok
I never really cared before. But this is an even bigger jump in ilvl than what we're used to. Normal is mythic.
Not bad. Seems to be then new conquest gear (pvp) would be bought at ilvl 226. 239 at 1600. 246 at 1800252 at 2100and 259 weapons at 2400.
Gonna be honest, really don't hate this trend.
Why do they insist on increasing the ilvl of gear THAT much patch by patch? It completely invalidates IN EXPANSION raid content. This is such a bad design.
Probably a bigger jump than it needs to be, tbqh. Make new tier heroic +7 from previous tier Mythic, or a half-difficulty jump in practice. Lets mythic guilds from last tier that are really on the ball jump straight into Mythic as if they're 8/10 Heroic in the same tier, less re-clearing, less iLvl inflation, while still giving an advantage to guilds that full-cleared and still giving you some incentive to drop down a tier to farm if you need iLvl help to start clearing at the same difficulty as last tier.We don't need 26 ilvl two-difficulty jumps in order to make the new raid worthwhile, it's frankly a bit nuts.
Not a fan of the ilvl discrepancy, but god damn, that bow is amazing, hope it comes through.
That's ok, if you've been playing current patch you can skip normal and get straight into heroic. One more reason why normal is useless difficulty and should be removed
