Honestly, I don’t think it needs anything big. Maybe something like increasing the chance of getting renown from relevant sources?Anima and followers resetting when you change covenants takes much, much longer to catch up on than Renown. If anything could use a catch up mechanic, it’s those things.
Good to know there will be ways for alts to quickly steam past that if you got a lot that you don't want to go through the effort right away of reaching.
Imagine not having arbitrary systems that time gate progression across multiple different characters and instead just having it be account wide so people can actually play the game without feeling like they are working a second job.
Tbh, renown isn't the hardest part of the grind even on fresh lvl 60 alts, they can't just give you all the rewards for logging in
I've barely even played Shadowlands content at level 60 and I'm gonna reach Renown 40 this week. It's super fast now.
to be honest, everything is already in place and the only thing missing is an instant boost to level Xfor example you get a guaranteed renown level from doing one dungeon a week up to I can't remember what level. if they just change it to guarantee 1 level per dungeon completed below renown 40, it's already an alternative catch up route
It's not renown that needs much of a catchup, but conduits. A fresh 60 is just sitting at the mercy of RNG all over the place waiting to build out their abilities.Perhaps if every expansion we quit the practice of removing a bunch of abilities and then adding remixes of them back in RNG rewards....
Missed opportunity to focus on REAL time-hogs, like Anima, and Covenant-swap thingies.They still think time-gating stuff will get people on the game longer. Well, people have life, might want to try other content, but Blizz keeps 'forcing' time-gating stuff that shouldn't be, on players. I'd even try PvP if they stopped putting so much effort on some stuff. People could actually find 'Joy' in content they never had the chance (time?) to try.
What I would like is to have the bonus anima achievements for upgrading covenant stuff to be account wide instead of per character. I would be much more inclined to play my alts more if it wasn't going to take me forever and a day to upgrade their stuff/buy tmogs/mounts due to super slow anima gains.
catch up on covenant sanctum upgrades and followers when? A month and a half later since my last unfortunate covenant swap and I still have buildings at level 2.
I caught up to lvl 40 in a week and a day on one of my alts...I wish anima and catch up was better
Dunno how much faster it needs to be, on my DH, joined maldraxxus to finally see their campaign...in one day I got 15 renown levels...thats over 1/3 done in one day. Guess we will see how much faster itll go with him when I log back in...
Isn't there already a system for that? Because my alts are all renown 40 and I didn't even try to get there.
I wish I could work on all the Covenants and be able to hop between all and be able to collect everything between them. You know, have the choice of being able to bounce between covenants without arbitrary timegating requirements to extend my sub time.
so you cant reach above 40 in the same week ?
