Might as well hand it out for free now. Can't let any neat rewards be locked behind harder content.
That means there almost no incentive to go above layer 4 except for the achievement points, the interest in Jailer's Gauntlet is already quite low and most classes can't solo it, this makes it hard for people to do the later layers if they want to get those achievements.Edit: I did it the first week it was out with 255 ilvl gear and it was impossible to solo as a mage above layer 4, I did it as a group of 5 people using classes that have very strong powers that they can get early. I did it again a few weeks ago to help a friend, now with everyone having 4 set and much higher ilvl and it wasn't much easier, you still need the same RNG powers from those certain classes to be able to beat it, be lucky with which bosses spawn etc. There's a reason only 0.3% of players have completed layer 8 (even with there being an incentive to do so), it is very hard. Not that many players go for only the points themselves (I am one of them) and this just makes it harder for people who play classes that can't solo it to get that done. I already have the achievements so for me it doesn't matter, just thinking of the people who haven't done it yet.
Well with the ilvl boost in S4 the gauntlet would have be doable by every class so it's a bit weird to nerf it.
As someone who was prepared to gear an alt in a spec I'm not familiar with, but proven to be able to do layer 8, this change is a huge relief.
where is "Tower Overwhelming" Title ?
Yeah, even with the classes that can solo, the play is to get in and out until you have the proper powers, they didn't design this well.
i mean... give me something for layer 8 then lol at least a title or a pet
don't like it ,... but probably a good change
I'm not gonna complain tbh :D This was actually the last thing I was missing for the Veilstrider. This essentially means whenever I log in 9.2.5., I'll have both the Veilstrider and the Maw-walker :-)
i was just gonna come back in season 4 to finish layers 5 to 8 but i guess ill take the achievement early im 276 ilevel on my enhancement shaman and i cant get past layer 5 !@#$s rough man.
They really should add some kind of reward for doing Layer 8 then...
