Soooo... Bottom line, if you don't have the cloak, don't bother?Returning player, haven't done the quests for that yet. Is it even worth the time/effort at this point?
Why does everyone whine that much about it?End game content is mostly build around the base amount of corruption resistance.The corruption resistance pass rank 15 cloak is only a bonus for the people that keep progressing their character since the begining.Why does people always expect their alt to be as good as other people main by playing only a few week? Its not like if the game was unplayable with only 70 corruption resistance.If you want to be the best, put the effort and the time needed for that.
Surprise... New week and new post about the corruption resistance being increased. Same comments. Gee maybe someone at wowhead should contact their buddy at Blizzard and have a look at this? Same goes for Mother's inventory selection.
I'm just gonna say the same thing everyone else has said. REMOVE THE DAMN GATE. I didn't have a max cloak on my off-class Monk because my raid team needed another Tank, so I stopped playing my max cloak mage. I didn't know at the time it was a time-gated increase, so my monk NEVER got max cloak and NEVER got any increases to resistance because of it. So not only is my now main Tank Monk permanently behind for ALL content; especially now with corruptions being purchasable, but my other alts I've been lvling aren't even viable to try and do dungeons or raids or pvp with because I'll be behind with the cloak. Even my main Mage is now behind because of me not knowing it was a weekly thing instead of a max cap. Just fix this. Quick this bad method of giving us what we want ages later. Just give us the smart things now over weeks later. Your actual fans and gamers will thank you over being angry and then saying "finally!".

Whoever didn't think about the catch up being a compounding problem at Blizzard should honestly be fired.I still enjoy playing wow. Even though BFA is a train wreck, I find a way to be amused. However, I would play more if there was a better catch up mechanic for the cloak on recent LVL 15 alts, and by having a complete selection of corruptions on Mother. Needless time gating of catching alts up to current corruption levels and Mother having a roulette of corruptions twice a week is completely nonsensical. People that no life grind are going to grind enough currency to get what they want now, or six weeks from now or whatever it is for a Mother cycle. What does it matter if they get what they want now or later? Oh no I made the perfect (insert class) with bis gear and corruption, what am I going to do? Oh! I can explore other classes and make a bunch of alts to experiment with because of all the friendly catch up mechanics!I myself would like the option to casually get echos, buy something here and there, replace lowers ranks with higher ones, grind out echos to replace something I put on my gear by accident, get blessed by a 475 piece out of the m+ chest with the right stats and feel compelled to do 23 M+15s back to back to put a corruption on it, etc, etc. People will still be playing the game. Probably more if these two little things were fixed.It just feels so forced right now. Play our game or miss out.
Ive never done N'zoth because I don't raid anymore. I am a solo player, so I'm screwed...Never catching up until some pug lets me in. Great! Oh wait! They check IO and see that all I have is my heroic nzoth kill that I paid for before the upgrade thing even happened.. nice.
OF course would be people complaining!"Why i can't have the same thing as people that play every week?"
I bet they do increase the rate at which you can catch-up sometime in the coming few weeks, but geez, even if they don't - if you play more you should be more powerful. Period. Mains should be stronger than alts. Mains that have been progressing the entire tier / xpac should be stronger than new mains in a way that a couple lockouts of gear funneling can't bridge.You're thinking of it as a punishment for new characters. Instead try thinking of it as a reward for existing ones.
My alt is looking at the length of time to catch up and I decided to go play another game instead...Even worse, I logged in to see the essences and they require a ridiculous amount of echos before I can start getting corruptions too...bye
"Why does people always expect their alt to be as good as other people main by playing only a few week?"Thank you. Catch-up mechanism means you are good enough to do current content. Rather easily. The fact that there's even a mechanism that a month old alt can catch up to their 2 year old main sounds unfair to me.
I want to try another class. It will get harder every week to even catch up because people won't invite anyone with few corruptions. As the resistance cap gets higher, expected dps will get higher as well because people will be running more corruptions with less of a handicap. The more people get behind the more they will be excluded and the more they won't be able to catch up.This system is doing the exact opposite of what it's supposed to do: it's preventing alts and new players from catching up. Let people farm cores, Blizzard. As many as they want until they're caught up. You'll see less people will get bored as they try new classes and more people will be jumping into the game.I for one finished achievements on my main, both AotC, the 5 mask solo runs, am caught up with the cloak, and would really like to play something else, but my guild (or any pugs) won't want a lowbie running a single corruption, and with good reason. Why not let us catch up? What is there for you to lose?
Congratulations for everyone who just got a level 15 cape, it will now only take untill the release of Shadowlands before you catch up in corruption resistance in order to play Battle for Azeroth properly.
I didn't get teleported to the chest room after my N'zoth kill. And quest items DO NOT get sent to you by mail. Blizzard doesn't want to do anything to help me for a bug in their game since the release of this patch. GG
